To Be Sung Upon the Water

Beautiful, my delight,
Pass, as we pass the wave.
Pass, as the mottled night
Leaves what it cannot save,
Scattering dark and bright.

Beautiful, pass and be
Less than the guiltless shade
To which our vows were said;
Less than the sound of the oar
To which our vows were made,
Less than the sound of its blade
Dipping the stream once more.

— Louise Bogan, To Be Sung Upon the Water; music by Samuel Barber

This beautiful skin applier for the Lelutka mesh head from Swallow is available at the Wayward Carnival, along with the lovely “I’m really a mermaid” nail jewels and rings. The Wayward Carnival lasts for one more week and then it will be packed up until its return next year, so if you haven’t made it over there be sure to check it out! I also have to put a plug in for one of my favorite hairs from Hair Fair this year…Elikatira’s Brooklyn. Hair Fair runs until the 26th, and then it too will fade away for another year.

Finally, this gorgeous necklace from Caelan Hancroft will be available at the Illusion Point event, which starts tomorrow at midnight SLT.

Comfort

ANC has released this set of bunnies for the Wayward Carnival, and they made me think of how soft rabbit fur is and how good it feels to hold something soft, and warm and alive sometimes. The bunnies are available in three different colors and I may just have to go back for more. Also at the Wayward Carnival are both my soft, fresh skin applier from Swallow for the Lelutka head and the Hook Thorn tree from Little Branch. The Wayward Carnival runs through the 30th of July so check it out if you haven’t already!

The Wayward Carnival is in full swing, with a variety of items from fashion to furniture to just plain old fun. Arkesh Baral has several new colors of her Luminous Eyes available at the event, and this beautiful and delicate necklace from United Colors is another great find. Both of my relaxed poses are from Label Motion’s Jenica set, also available at the Carnival.

My perfectly gorgeous dress today is by the talented Sands Leavitt, and will be available at Shiny Shabby starting tomorrow.

Dreams

All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind,
Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.

 

-Dreams, David Herbert Lawrence

Hair Fair 2015

It is nearly here, the event that depletes my Linden balance faster even than the Arcade. Hair Fair starts July 11th and runs through July 26th. This hairstyle is one of the beautiful designs that will be released at Hair Fair by Damselfly. Every transaction made at Hair Fair will donate a portion to Wigs for Kids, the charity of choice for Hair Fair 2015.

Swen

I loved this dress from Glam Affair, released at Uber this month. It’s just the kind of dress I like–not too short, simple, but oh so stylish. I knew I couldn’t take a picture in this dress on any old sim. This dress deserves Milan or Rome. Fortunately the Egoisme mainstore has such a backdrop. My geometric earrings from Cae add a dressy sparkle to this look.

The Brittania Village Festival is taking place this weekend and so I made a quick visit to the sim to take my photo today. It was the perfect backdrop for the fabulous Raffia hat from Maxi Gossamer, available at Fameshed this month. I am also wearing Maxi’s Damasc Bangles today, which is the group gift for this month, available for all group members at the front of her store.
