Like a Phoenix from the flames

Phoenix inspired

 

“And when all that was left was ashes, she would again clothe herself in flame. Rising from the dust of her past to rekindle the spark of her future. She was a Phoenix, her own salvation; rebirthed, renewed, resurrected.” — L. Torenson [ source http://aimhappy.com/phoenix-quotes-rise/ ]

Azul, Vivienne gown mandarin

I decided to play around with poses when I saw this gorgeous flowing gown from Azul. Vivienne is available in a range of colors, shown here is Mandarin the MP Limited color, and includes fittings for mesh bodies Belleza (3), Maitreya, Slink (2), TMP, Tonic(2), Ocacin and EBody as well as standard mesh sizes. In the top photo I used a dramatic mermaid pose which ” floated ” the flexis all around, loved the effect but I thought I better include a more “standard” pose so that you can see how gorgeous it is even when not moving.

Lootbox lovelies and Lode

Lootbox lovelies

Dance unto the light,
Sway to the sounds of time,
Watch the angels bright,
As they dance within your mind.
Dance my friends and sway,
To beauty, to laughter, to love,
For this is the most perfect day,
A perfect gift from above!

Zuri Jewelry has released a mini- collection of 8  beautiful bridal tiaras featuring pearls, roses and delicate baby’s breath clusters. You will find these at the Zuri Jewelry mainstore at a fantastic 50% discount, while you are there be sure to pick up the lovely Scalloped Lace veil , a bargain at  99L, to complete the look .

The Rita gown from Azul has been updated and as it features draped pearls I thought that this would be a gorgeous bridal gown, with it’s off the shoulder neckline, fitted bodice and flowing skirts it is such a romantic styled gown.

There is always Hope

‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—
