Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering
In the sun
Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Moonlight still caresses her shoulders on the warm summer morning. She can taste the salt dripping from her hair, a secret between the sea and her soul. The soft first rays of sun reflect on the water, playing with the waves around her.

Her hair is tangled with the leaves of her Island flower crown, a fresh and cute creation by Anachron, found exclusively as a gacha prize at the current round of SaNaRae.

Nymph-2

As the day breaks and the sun shines brighter, you can appreciate the charming orange flowers and leaves (it’s one of the rares), as well as my lovely Island Lei around my neck, Kukui Nut (another rare). SaNaRae just opened a couple of days ago, and you can go find that and much more until August 17th (like the beautiful PUMEC skin I wear!).

Crown of love and death

Standard

I will never hear her joyful steps and the rustle of her heavy skirts rushing to my arms, the Coimbra sun playing with the reflections of her hair, the hair I kissed so many times. Never again will I hear her loving voice whispering my name, her laughter, her timid sighs. Her voice was silenced forever, robbed from me, ripped off from my heart, as I will rip off yours straight from your chest, and watch you die.

By my power, you all shall kneel, you all must kiss her decaying hand, and swear your allegiance to Dona Inês de Castro, my queen, your queen, the queen you have despised and cruelly murder.

Ines de Castro 2

The Mondego River will sing sad sonnets for her name on the warm summer nights, and the blood she shed will mark the Fountain of Tears for the ages to come, for nobody can ever forget how much I loved Dona Inês, and how unfairly her life was destroyed.

✽ڿڰۣ— NOTE ڿڰۣ—✽

My text is based on a legend surrounding the death of Inês de Castro, lover and allegedly secret wife of prince Pedro of Portugal. She was legitimized as queen after her death, when the heartbroken prince became Pedro I, King of Portugal. This is as far as documented history goes.

Legend claims that he had her exhumed and forced his nobles to kiss her hand and swear allegiance to her as queen, and that he executed her killers by ripping off their hearts, one through the chest and the other one through the back. None of this confirmed, but remains as one of the most tragic real life love stories of Portuguese history.

They rest buried together, their sumptuous marble coffins facing each other, so that they will see each other face to face when they’re awaken, on Judgement Day.

Where are we now?

Standard
Where are we now?

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer Platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Oh, Berlin, my Berlin, beautiful Berlin, multifaceted Berlin of my heart. I can breathe the melancholy history of your terror and dividing walls, while the sun brings a new spring of “multi-kulti” happy youth. You stole my heart forever, my Berlin forever, my new home.

Even though summers here are weak, I’m wearing my super cool Crop Out Hoodie, by Anachron, which you can find exclusively at The Thrift Shop. It comes in various colors and includes mesh body versions. You can go get yours until the first days of May, and you can also find there some more cool urban/punk creations from Anachron, like these Rebel Shorts I’m wearing, and more.

I’m Berliner and I’m tourist, too, sometimes I still walk wide-eyed and eager to discover and capture all the secrets of your vibrant nights. I still let you seduce me every day with the strength of the past, with the sweet promise of today, with the fascinating mystery of the future. Do you know where you’re walking?

My smile still stays on

Standard
My smile still stays on

The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

It’s the art of make-believe. Let me disguise reality under a thick layer of virtual happiness, and drown every thought with the immortal sweetness of chocolate. Ah, let me live like this forever, and never wake up.

This lovely cart of sugary comfort is the latest creation by The Roawenwood, which you can find exclusively at Draftsman – an SL architectural event. It’s impossible to look at those delicious pastries without craving for them.

The event runs until February 9th, and there you can find this refreshment cart, and also these beautiful vintage parlor chairs in two different colors: teal or rose.

I love the versatility of this furniture. You can use them to decorate a Victorian parlor, a modern home, or anything else your imagination calls for. The chairs come with a few smooth animations for male and female avatars.

I’m also showing a little teaser of LaZe’s new creation, the vanity mirror/dresser I’m leaning on. I try practicing my smiles, but alas, Second Life mirrors never smile back. Show must go on.

diva-1

I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free
The show must go on.
