Mr. X and the Ice Cream Truck - Heart Homes and [Aleutia]

When I think of Summer, I think of Ice Cream... I have fond memories of the ice cream man coming through the neighborhood -- ringing his bell... and stopping on the side of the road with a treasure trove of frozen goodness.  Aphrodite at Heart Homes has once again out done themselves with their new Ice Cream Truck that does everything but drive.  And, what to wear to an ice cream fest....? Zoya by [Aleutia] of course!


I love love love this "summer of love" retro ice cream truck. It comes in yellow and pink and is low prim and so very interactive. A must have for a beach party! You can make cones and dip them. There is a machine that actually fills the cones right before your very eyes!!! And, while you are at it check out the gorgeous back of this dress and the delicate lace sides that scream not only for ice cream but maybe even for a summer fling!


If you want to whip up some summer fun you can do that too with this truck... while wearing Zoya that comes with   [Aleutia]'s signature HUD in prints or solid colors giving you infinite possibilities. The bowl and mixer attach to your avatar...and best of all there is a clean up button so things are not added to your inventory.


I told Mr. X that I am dying for a hot fudge sundae now... with tons of fudge and fresh whipped cream and yes... a cherry and nuts on top.... this truck is making me hungry... as I prepare all these sundaes for friends.


Zoya is a fun dress perfect for those hot summer days of playing outside, where you'll keep those long legs tanning while you enjoy the lengthening days. With beautiful lacing zigzagging across the back and sheer panels of delicate lace curving along the side panels, this is an eye-catching goodie for your wardrobe. I have paired this dress with shoes from Ghee called Daffodil Flora Peeps.


Zoya is available in Physique, Hourglass, Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, and TMP and this blog represents just a small number of colors the hud offers. Be sure to check out the Red Tag Sales - a new weekly sale @ [Aleutia], featuring amazing items from 35-75% off every Thursday. Get to [Aleutia]  today because the group fee is 50% off --- it's only 50L to join and you can expect amazing group gifts from this talented designer. And, look at the cone I made for Mr. X.. isn't it gorgeous!


I have paired this outfit with new hair by Emo-tions that is an exclusive at Cosmopolitan called Chelsea. I love this updo of finely woven afro braids and the way the strands of hair frame my face. This comes with special hairbase appliers for classic and letuka and catwa mesh heads and is available in a wide range of huds from black and white, to blondes, browns, reds and pastels.

Magical World of Tolkien, the Tirion Forest and the Sheriwood Foundation @ Medieval Faire

Sheriwood and The Sheriwood Foundation, Inc., were envisioned and created by three women (lovingly known to us as the Three Graces).  Over ten years ago, Sheridanne Kelley (who plays the character Valier Yavanna), Bon McLeod (the character Valier Vana) and Valla Bonneto (who is our First Elder) joined forces to plan and organise their thoughts for something special within Second Life.  Vala Foulsbane (who is King Finwe of the Noldor) and Maralee Greenwood (Nerdanel, beloved of Feanor) joined the team shortly thereafter.


Together, supported by the ideas and encouragement of many other excellent artists and writers, they discussed every detail of the two original sims (Tirion Upon Tuna, the White City and Tirion Forest) on paper for about a year before even one plant or tree was planted.  Sheridanne has provided  guidance for all and the financial support needed to realise the dream over the years.



Their vision was to bring together like-minded individuals who had a thirst for peace and inspiration; who loved JRR Tolkien and the worlds he wrote about.  They selected the first seven chapters of The Silmarillion as their role play focus  -- the only interlude of peace in Tolkien's epics.


Tirion Forest took about six months of meticulous building by the amazing Bon McLeod and it was opened in February of 2008 with a wonderful ceremony attended by about 60 people.  Tirion Upon Tuna, (built by Vala Foulsbane) is a magnificent creation of Tolkien's imagination and recreated from a fine painting by Ted Nasmith.  It took nearly two years of an average of eight hours per day to build.  It is the most mathematically precise build we have ever seen in Second Life and is reserved for their most loyal members.


And then people...the most brilliant part of Sheriwood is the sincere fellowship of some brilliant minds and leaders in both worlds.  This fellowship is filled by a group of people who have devoted their time and efforts to role playing "within" the First Age, to help people get excited about reading the works of Tolkien themselves.  Maralee Greenwood is creative director of activities and helps manage the many day-to-day issues of running this stage play.  This sim has many activities and a variety of classes in everything from using blade and bow to writing challenges to stretch your creativity.



The members of this Sim are part of the Tolkien Society and have managed to attract some experts in Tolkien, including a couple of university professors...even the amazing Tolkien artist, Ted Nasmith.

As the group formed, it was apparent there were many activists among the group, so they decided to form The Sheriwood Foundation, Inc.  They received a 501(c)3 status in October of 2008.  Their aim is to use the sims as attractors of others who love reading and to awaken their recognition of how critical literacy is today in the real world.

Since then they have added additional sims to round out their storytelling stage including: The Pass of Calicirya and Valarinde (built by Bon). Two of the teams most amazing members took on the building of Elven Quest (Torgo123 Exonar (our Prince Fingolfin) and Naiya Melody (who is Anaire, princess and wife of Fingolfin)).  Finally, the group saved Helms Deep (called Aglarond) sim from destruction, making it their "continent" six full sims.


As would be expected in a sharing and caring fellowship, some of our most precious friends here have battled with cancer or have loved ones who have.  During times of treatment and recovery from treatments, many have taken comfort and rest in our "healing sim" Valarinde of the Two Trees, where there is special music and quiet places to just relax and heal.



The lands owned by this creative collaborative are for those who wish to find a fellowship of sincerely caring people who desire to make a difference in the lives of many by participating and learning more about Tolkien and the crying need of many who have no way to read his works, let alone road signs or a menu.

They took the highest contribution category for the Relay For Life Medieval Faire and have created a special gift for any we meet.  They are also joining with Torgo123 Exonar to sponsor a concert with some of the most sought after live performers in SL to attract even more interest in RFL on the 27 May.  They encourage the SL community to make time to attend and/ or donate to this event.

Since they are a registered Foundation, they do not have rentals, as is mandated by Linden Labs, but have "donation stones" for those who wish to secure homes within their community.  The essence of the members of this sim is about sharing the love of reading and writing for the benefit of those who need support to learn.

Mr X and Sandra Fabulous in Fringe by LRD @ Swank


Tapping my foot to the beat of the music. Eyeing him. He looks a little confused. I wonder if he is socially untouchable. I know I never look confused...especially wearing this  elegant dress that is an exclusive at Swank created by LRD and called Sandra.


I love the sexy deep plunging neckline and the asymmetric hemline and the way the fringe  trails embellishing the look of this dress.  The spaghetti straps and the sleek fit shows off every curve...

 It is made for  belleza, slink isis, freya and maitreya mesh bodies. It comes with a color changing hud featuring ten of the hottest colors of the season. There are also two hud options for the beads on the fringe you can choose between silver or gold to match your  accessories. I combined this with the cute shoes from Zex's outfit called Grace that I already blogged. Love that outfit and the shoes with its massive color changing hud!

To me, Sandra exudes confidence and sensuality... all wrapped up in fringe... this is a must have for your summer wardrobe exclusively at Swank. Mr. X likes this look and whispers... let's run away together and let the fireworks begin!

Mr. X and Lady MacAlister of Sky Crate @ MEDIEVAL FAIRE May 19-June 18

The MEDIEVAL FAIRE is in full swing and there are so many exclusives at great prices it makes my head swim with joy!  There is everything here from furniture to accessories and clothes. Speaking of clothes I found two of the most elegant tartan gowns created by  Fenn MacMoragh owner of MacMoragh's Forge that are perfect for medieval roleplay or for any formal event. And, for men there are kilts...! Fenn MacMoragh has been creating in SL for over six years. It started with a pair of boots, then he needed a new kilt, and. of course he wanted a sword...needless to say, he just kept on building!


The first gown is Lady MacAlister of Sky Crate. It is made for classic bodies -- I have adjusted my mesh Lara body and it is stunning on me.  I love the tight fitting bodice that has eyelets and laces up the front accentuating your figure in the best of medieval style. The open front overdress of the gorgeous tartan of the MacAlister Clan reveals a classic gold silk chemise that makes this authentic.


The second exclusive dress is called Lady Murray. A wheat colored linen blouse and superbly cut bodice in a beautiful teal/green color has eyelets that lace  up the front giving you that perfect hourglass shape... Mr. X loves that! The over gown is made of a high quality classic tartan pattern that has a traditional  chemise that any lassie would be happy to wear.

Mr X and Allium by Ghee Exclusive at Designers Showcase through 5/31

I love thoughtful understatement. And Mr. X loves the classically feminine look. We both love summer frocks that  knock it out of the park and are good to go to almost any event from a casual dinner party to a night dancing under the stars.
The new dress and shoes by Ghee called Allium it is sold exclusively at the Designers Showcase through May 31.  It is so stylish and elegant -- and comes in 8 gorgeous custom colors - matching shoes are sold separately.  Allium is made for Freya, Slink, Isis, Lara, and Venus mesh bodies.  The pumps are made for bellezza, slink & maitreya high mesh feet.
Many of Ghees outfits are mix and match and inspired by nature.  The plant in RL called Allium is  in the onion family and has a glorious globe that crowns a graceful stem. Like  the plant, this dress comes in  the same colors of the globe- pink, white, yellow, blue and purple in addition to black... and it is stunning!

 I love the way the pattern of the allium embellishes the dress and the way the one shoulder top with it's cute ruffle adds an unexpected edge to the classic skirt of this outfit.  It is perfect for a summer ramble and is sure flood your inbox with invitations!

Mr X and Chi @ Swank

How I love a trip to the fair....  there is a certain romance to the smell of cotton candy and the up and down motion of a ferris wheel...  I found the perfect mini dress that is an exclusive Swank called Yarkarta by Chi that is made for mesh bodies.


Yarkarta comes with gladiator lace up sandals a massive color changing hud that matches the  dress.  The boots are made for slink and maitreya high feet and are a must have with 20 colors!


Ch's  exclusive dress Yarkarta  is made of skin tight curves hugging silk with an amazing hud. You can change the color of the dress with a hud that combines 20 solid and pattern colors in total.  The patterns range from leopard and abstract prints to  floral textures.  The hud also allows you to  can change the metal of the neck chains and harness.  Mr. X really adores the way the side of this dress laces up my thighs... what I like, best is the mix and match color changing hud --- that provides endless hours of possibilities and I love surprising Mr. X!

Mr. X and Constance Stanbury *NEW* !!SMD!!

It is the 1850s. At the mouth of the Baltic lies the gilded city of Saint-Petersburg, lined with ornate palaces and home to the Romanov dynasty. And, !!SMD!! has made the most beautiful 18th century Rococo styled gown called Constance Stanbury in the finest courtly fashion to explore any 18th century SL sim.


Constance Stanbury is made in the finest 18th century Rococo style with a tobe a la francaise consisting of a jupe (skirt), stomacher and low cut ruffled bodice with marked waist and flowing loose hanging back folds, called Watteau folds. This gown is made of light silk taffeta and damask -- historically it came in soft pastels such as this lovely purple or pink that I am wearing.  This gown also comes in blue, black and white, red and teal and is made for Slink and Maitreya Mesh bodies.

The hat is an artful display of lace, flowers and feathers... perfect for a proper lady in the 1880's!  The hair I have on is no longer made although may be available on MP.


Imagine walking the historic streets of this fabulous city. Known as the Venice of the North the wide avenues and grand neo-classical styled buildings are amazing. Nevsky Prospekt is St Petersburg's best known street cutting through the historic center from the Admiralty to the Moscow Railway Station then on to the Alexander Nevsky Monastery. Palaces, cathedrals, theatres grace the streets all leading to the magnificent Winter Palace.

Mr. X and Siri new [Aleutia] & Emo-tions Jewelry "All Those Kisses"

It is the weekend... and what to wear --- is always a question... but [Aleutia]'s new design called "Siri" makes it an easy choice with tons of variation... Mr. X likes that.  This is perfect for gossip and rum at the port of call...later dinner outdoors under soft lights -- the fragrance of orange in the air....

Siri  is a luscious one piece bodysuit that is sleek and sensual and perfect to make a bold statement. The slink silk bodice accentuates the sexy sheer  silk cutouts while the suit hugs a woman's curves in a fabulous fit that will have heads turning.


The first version of Siri is available with [Aleutia]'s signature 30 color HUD.  This hud allows you to mix and match this outfit in solid colors.


The second version of Siri includes 12 flamboyant prints -- each one prettier than the next... plus it has a 30 color  hud for the sheer cutouts giving the prints endless  variety.  Siri is 100% Original Mesh and an exclusive Maitreya Design.  It is available at Cosmopolitan through May 20 and is only 250L For the length of the event!


I have paired Siri with a new jewelry release by Em-tions called "All Those Kisses" (good god, Mr. X knows how I love those!!).  I have a personal fondness for turquoise in both lives and this release is gorgeous with its chunky bracelet, gorgeous oval ring that reminds me of a Zuni  ring and charming arrowhead necklace all in finely wrought silver. It has a Native American vibe... which I love...to Native Americans, turquoise is simply -- life...the earth is alive with all things... no matter how large or small...and this is something we must all respect. An exclusive @ ON9 through May 31.

Mr. X and Roman Holiday @ Swank -Prey, GW, Glitter & Moondance 7 emo-tions

I told Mr. X that Audrey Hepburn was the third choice behind Jean Simmons and Elizabeth Taylor  for that classic movie "Roman Holiday".  Really, can you imagine it with anyone else?  I can't and neither can Mr. X. The new frock by Prey that is an exclusive @ Swank called Akamu is the perfect sorta dress to fall asleep in on a park bench.... and wake up safe and sound in an American Reporter's apartment... for safe keeping of course!


 I love this retro chic  neutral styled bubble dress carefully embellished  with flowers.  It has a very "swank" high waistline and sleek  V neck multi toned silk bodice in a lighter neutral shade. Akamu is made for maitreya mesh and classic mesh bodies.   I am wearing shoes from Swank by GW called Spring Stiletto.  They are made for slink high feet and come with a color changing hud that offers 5 solids and 5 floral pattern colors.


The necklace by Moondance Jewels called Dew Drop is also an exclusive at Swank and comes with two bracelets, two rings and a lovely necklace.  Life can be quite unexpected-- and wearing this retro chic dress, you might just be the very thing they just don't expect... and that is great fun indeed....


As Princess Anne Said in Roman Holiday...At midnight, I'll turn into a pumpkin and drive away in my glass slipper. Joe replied... And that will be the end of the fairy tale.
