You Can Do Magic

Wizarding Faire, brought to you by Mischief Managed Roleplay, will open its doors the 6th of October running through the 20th.   On my adventure through Diagon Alley, the world of magic decided that I would make a great professor, teaching of course Cajunology and Spicelusionry!

I’m one of those professors that the stodgy old professors look down on because my teaching methods are off the cuff and often deemed DANGEROUS.  Sure, wrestling the mighty Swampimarmillion and the fabled Gatorgorbius is dangerous, but if you don’t train the youngins right away to fear these deadly creatures, then how are they going to save the world!

So I decided I would take a stroll through the Diagon Alley and see if there were any threats, with my trusted sidekicks MISHcheif Chipspell and Hedgehorn McSharpletooth and Snowflufferkins Pigglesnout – who by the way is really the ancient rare white Crocodragon White Scale The Swamp Eater, I just happened to turn him into a fluffy cute critter with the Miamai Cutsium Perfectium spell long long ago.

We had to take lots of treats because all of us love sugar as you can see, but I think the broom shouldn’t have chocolate, it really affects his steering!  My trusted wand at my side, any threats that may have been lurking were too afraid to make an appearance, though now that I look at the image I put in my scrapbookius polaroidium there sure is a large creepy shadow following me.  I must investigate, for the safety of the event of course!

Choose Your Own Adventure

August 1st, that means faMESHed and I was an eager patron, when the clock struck midnight I headed over to get all the things and it was well worth it!

I was admittedly very excited and anxious for new ENTENTE items for faMESHed.  It is like adding extra whipped cream to a sundae to have the ENTENTE team creating new content for this already superb event.  Needless to say my first stop was to get this perfect new gillet aka tank top and massively detailed boots.  As always the ENTENTE gear has a wide array of textures to add to the base and that sure makes this Cajun one happy buyer.  A great feature that you can find with the faMESHed releases are fatpacks of the textures, very handy and worth the price!

I set out on a little adventure to explore some new places.  I jot down slurls when I read my fellow bloggers posts and peruse flickr, so I can venture out and see the great spots everyone else is discovering.  What are your current favorite sims right now?

It is almost Friday, I hope you have great plans laid out for the weekend and if not, that at the very least it is a nice relaxing time!

Events are a blast in SecondLife, I enjoy them greatly, and have gotten pretty methodical about my shopping.  You see, I not only go shop for myself, but I make a list of all the things I want to buy Mrs. Raynier.  It is always a great perk when a vendor has gifting options that way I can send her all the things!  We then head on over to the event and shop together, pointing out what we like what colors or patterns we prefer.  If the event is ultra crowded we wait a few days so we can go together.

I have had conversations here and there with other residents about events in SL and often they do not know where to keep track of what is going on, or haven’t heard about certain events on the proverbial SL street.  I always point residents to SeraphimSL and urge them to add Seraphim to their RSS reader or subscribe in some fashion to keep up to date with the events they cover.

Another hang-up some residents have mentioned, and this is mainly the guys, feeling there is nothing at those events for the dudes.  Not true!  For example, this round of Collabor88 has Atro Patena putting out a new version of Nicholas, aptly named Nicholas II.  We also of course thankfully have the amazing event The Men’s Department which has been a fantastic event for men BUT not limited to just the male gender.  That’s what I love about events, you can find a little of everything at most of them, it just takes a little looking around and often the courage to look outside the box.

Take this great bow-tie necklace from Yummy, you may approach it with the thought that it is for girls only, well I challenge that and say nay, it’s for anyone that it fits their style, and we all know how much I love my bow-ties in real life and SL, so for me it was a must wear.

Think outside the box and dare to be yourself, no matter what the packaging shows, if it appeals to you, wear it!

Collabor88: The Land Of Enchantment

I woke up today, thinking about my childhood; growing up in Santa Fe, New Mexico.   This round of Collabor88 is full of the beautiful Southwest colors that I grew up with, and the feel of the Southwest oasis I will always miss. From sky blues and earth tones to turquoise and silver jewelry and a combination of Spanish and Native American art, decor and culture-the Collabor88 designers did not only capture it perfectly but they went above and beyond as usual.

When I saw WIPs (works in progress) from Isla Gealach for her items this round, I started on my nostalgic journey, likely why my childhood and high school years have been at the forefront of my mind, for she has painted a scene that could be a postcard for New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment.

My ancestors on mon Mama’s side came to New Mexico in the late 1800s from Galicia, Spain.  My grandfather was born in 1914 and between the arrival of my family and his birth New Mexico was owned by Mexico.  When New Mexico became a state in the U.S.A., my family owned a great deal of land in New Mexico in Guadalupe and Santa Fe.  A rich Spanish culture combined with Native American, mostly Navajo, created the rich tapestry that is New Mexico.

Mon Mama tells tales of how her great grandmother would say that they called New Mexico the Land of Enchantment for it was enchanted by duendes (faerie) and still held the magic of the land, rich in soil and flourishing with energy.  The women in my family are all Curandera’s, or healers much like shamans.  Women of the land, in tuned with Nature and the healing of spirit and mind.  They were/are powerful women, and as enchanting as the land they claimed for their own.

There is a very powerful feel to New Mexico, you  notice it the moment you cross the state line, the equivalent of taking Valium   A misconception about the state is that it is a barren dessert.  It is not so, for my childhood was spent in vast lush forest mountains, running through pine trees, watching deer and wild animals drink water from rich flowing creeks and rivers.    It is not the desert that most picture, dry, hot, with dirt for miles and miles-that would more aptly describe Nevada.

I will always hold a special place in my heart for New Mexico, and now, thanks to Isla Gealach, I can always have a little piece of that heaven to re-visit through her beautiful creation, the Sweetwater Room.

I had the absolute pleasure of spending the early afternoon with BellaStarr Fhang.  I have admired Bells blog ohhmaiblog and her exceptional photography for some time.  I love to see what great looks she will put together, how imaginative her scenes can be and the way they simple have such life.  Along the journey of watching her blog, her images have evolved and become better and better.

But have you heard, she has opened a great little cozy pose shop called evolve.  I am enjoying her poses so much, they are fun and well created and very suited for photographs!   I urge you to head over to her shop in world and take a look.  Watch for her upcoming releases for Super Bargain Saturday too!
