Kissed by a rose

Standard

There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain
Baby, to me, you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny
Won’t you tell me, is that healthy, baby?

bath 1

A sultry song, the smell of roses, the warmth of the water on our skins, and the sweet taste of you between my lips… The true epiphany blooms from our passion.

bath 2

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey

Arualblues, a princess

Standard

I’m very happy to present to you the new Princess Arualblues collection from Zuri Jewelry. I am honored and touched that Zuri has given my name to this gorgeous creation, which fits so well with my love for medieval/fantasy dress-up in Second Life.

arualblues

 

Five years ago, I became Zuri’s customer, later group member, then store model, flirted with management, and finally settled in my current role as her official blog fiddler. But the best thing about working with Zuri was knowing her. Zuri has been to me a dear pal, a caring mom, a nervous boss, a generous friend… Ours is a friendship forged through long talks, work stress, occasional scuffles, shared laughter, tears on each others’ shoulders, and we’re still here, and for this and everything else, thank you.

The collection will come very soon to the store in various beautiful colors, and matching crowns will also be available. I model a special edition in cobalt blue, my favorite.

Then and now #SecondLifeChallenge

Standard

then&now

Oh, what a ride this was since that September evening back in 2011, my first year in Germany, when this guy I was dating recommended me to join Second life. My virtual début had an important advantage: a long time “insider” who didn’t want his girl looking like a noob, and his wonderful friend Ms. T, who was incredibly generous and patient, and took me shopping to all her favorite places.

In all these years, I’ve been a zombie hunter, a medieval tavern wench, a jewelry model, and a hilarious array of goddesses, demons, mythological creatures, historical ladies, and more. And that guy who first guided me down this mesmerizing rabbit hole is now my partner, my lover, and my husband, in all my lives.

I haven’t kept many photos of my avatar from before 2014, but I always kept this one, taken when I was only 2 months old back in November 2011. I chose to recreate that one, one of the first looks I put together trying to mimic my RL overall look and style. I still own some of the stuff that I’m wearing in that first photo. I never had the heart to get rid of them, like the hoarder that I am, so I will include the credits!

Years later, just as it happened in RL, I became paler because my skin misses the tropical sun, and I lounge by a fireplace because I’m always kinda cold here… I also visibly gained some weight (blame all those delicious German pastries!), and I added my cute little wedding band, and strong nail polish, another hobby that I picked up here in Berlin.

After being so many different versions of me, so many different creatures and dreams, I came back to the me that reminds most of the real me… Thank you, Second Life, for all these years of adventure and entertainment. Thank you, my dear virtual friends, and the ones who also became real through hours of chat, shared laughter and tears. Thank you, my love, Zero Upshaw, for showing me this world and inviting me to live this fantasy with you.

Pour some sugar on me

Standard

You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste, saccharine
Cause I’m hot, say what, sticky sweet
From my head, my head, to my feet…

Come play 1

Let’s play, I’ll be your doll, your sweet doll, and I will wait for you in my Black Iron Cage, cuddling my Bad Kitty plush doll. I will dance at your command, I will let the sweat and sugar run down my Cute Unicorn Tank Tee, and I will let you tease me until we can’t breathe.

Play with me… get lost in the lines of my thirsty lips, the soft sensuality of my Mellia skin… every fiber of me desires you. Silence is broken only by the delicate cling of my Dangling Hearts and our sighs of passion.

Come play 2

Pour some sugar on me
Ooh, in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C’mon fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
Oh, I can’t get enough

Queen of two worlds

Standard

Me dá a chave que abre esse portão, teu coração
Vem… a lua cheia nos chama pra rua
A minha vida parou no tempo pra te esperar,
Minha amada princesa

Give me the key that opens that gate, your heart
Come… the full moon calls us to the streets
My life stopped in time to wait for you
My beloved princess


They say that Chica was the most beautiful woman that João Fernandes, the young new governor of Tijuco, had ever seen. His passion defied the scandal, the frowns and the whispers. Hated and feared, envied and praised, all bow now to queen Chica.

Xica

This fascinating love story inspired the TV series Xica da Silva. In a scene, after some time dressing up with the best Baroque gowns that the diamonds of Minas Gerais could buy, she chose to don sheer, delicate silks on her voluptuous body, so that her lover João could see her beauty at all times.

Here she waits for him at the door in her exquisite Lady Penelope gown set, an exclusive creation by Silvan Moon for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The complete sets include a lovely soft gown, but I chose to wear the sheer pieces alone. The stunning jewelry set is the new partial mesh version of Zuri’s Czarina collection, no less than any queen would deserve.

The song is the same

Standard
The song is the same

There’s a full moon above us
Shining out so bright
Why worry about tomorrow?
You’re young and you’re travelling light

Come on, handsome… tell that joke again, tell me how much you love to hear me laugh. Come closer… we have nothing to explain tonight. Let all your troubles drift away, and enjoy the song. It doesn’t matter if it’s always the same.

Your eyes avidly follow the alluring laces of my Anastasia boots, an exclusive by Renegade for the Fetish Fair, starting tomorrow. I see your desire, I can feel it in the air, around the tight curves of my Guennie latex dress, the latest Saturday Sale at the Witch)O(Craft main store (until tomorrow!).

Spend the rest of the night trapped by my arms, my legs, lost in the sensual intoxication of my Berlin skin, a sweet Secret Affair by 7 Deadly S{k}ins.

Lit 2

Hold me closer
You and I may never meet again
Maybe somewhere
Down old memory lane

Glimpse of midnight

Standard

The moon shines white and silent
On the mist, which, like a tide
Of some enchanted ocean,
O’er the wide marsh doth glide,
Spreading its ghost-like billows
Silently far and wide.

Moon demonDo you hear the eerie murmur in the dark, perhaps on the water? It might be the wind… or not the wind at all.

All things look strange and mystic,
The very bushes swell
And take wild shapes and motions,
As if beneath a spell…
