We Are What We Are
Sometimes deep and profound changes around us can come at an accelerated rate leaving us wondering what kind of storm we´ve just survived.
Oftentimes they can lead to much needed growth, the kind that leaves us painfully sore, because some of these changes can be devastatingly brutal and hard.
Internal changes however are a little trickier to deal with for me and they are usually the result of a moment of luminosity, in which for at least a second everything´s clear.
Opening my eyes, and getting mad over having been taken advantage of or having been manipulated and used, then propelling change within myself is the normal train of reaction, but I am not really used to dealing with the feeling of zero tolerance over self righteousness that has lately invaded my very core.
Almost as if I was willing the change I long for not just in me but outside myself, the place I live and the world I inhabit, which is something I really have no control over whatsoever. Is this enough to make me a control freak? … Perhaps.
Will I regain my ¨sanity¨, my patience and sweet demeanor on the face of long identified personal and worldwide manipulators, liers, users, social climbers, so called ¨friends,¨ enemies, frenemies, corrupt politicians and business people? I don´t think so!!!
It´s time for the entire world to wake up and change as a whole. We really have no other choice than to evolve and change our nasty ways or we´ll soon be shown the door!

It´s a strapless dress indeed but unlike any other one that I ´ve ever tried on in SL. The fit is definitely very Dolce & Gabbana. The neckline is cut lower than most other dresses. It is paneled in different textures and colors and it has a diaphanous scarf hanging around the neck then twisting down. Available in several color combinations.

A cross between a maillot and bikini. Elegant and sober yet sexy. This is definitely my kind of suit and the feel is a bit like my own Eres Maillot from RL. Available in all the colors of the rainbow!

As easy as SL dressing can get, this mini is strapless and riveted in lace, the back has a criss cross closure (click here to see it). Available in several solid colors and patterns. The dress is sexy, easy and summer-ish.
It comes in 5 standard sizes plus fitted mesh sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus and Physique. For the Maitreya Body I use either the Physique or one of the standard sizes but please try it first.

This outfit is available in several colors and allows for different combinations. Pipe cleaner cut trousers, topped with a cache-coeur top. The top comes with a HUD with options to change the neckline, side ribbon and blouse color.
The fringed shoes for Slink are available in different colors. You can choose a bag to either match or contrast with the rest of the outfit. To my delight, it comes with a high pose level which allowed me to maintain my AO on while still holding the bag in place.

Merge of Equals – Come to me
As Game of Thrones Season 6 is set to premier in April, I am delighted by the song they chose to use for their trailer. I´ve always been kind of in love with Chris Isaak´s Wicked Game to the point where I had it on my SL´s profile for a long, long time.
The trailer uses a cover by James Vincent McMorrow which I find heart wrenching in all of it´s seemingly imperfection and probably the only other version that stands up to the original.
Meanwhile the House of Ghee is probably a die hard GOT fan as well, and for this round of The Instruments they have prepared two regally imposing gowns based on the Television series.
Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer
Inspired by the girl from The Land of Winterfell who will soon become a woman. A winter coat gown with a chaperon cape and fluted long sleeves, both riveted in fur, that comes with a celtic like embroidery. Also available in Green, Teal and Violet.
One of the features I liked most about this gown is that it seems to have a certain 3D quality to it plus the hair is included to make sure it fits underneath the chaperone (hood). It comes with a color change HUD.
Ghee – Sansa Grown in Bronze. Available at The Instruments LaGyo – Forehead Band.
Sleeveless gown with a hood and long cape in an exquisite textured solid pattern. The cut stays close to the body and opens out from the top of the hip down. Available in Currant, Pine and Violet.
Ghee – Melisandre Gown and Cape Set in Teal. Available at The Instruments. DDR – Headpiece. Osakki – Vintage bracelet. The Forge – Belt. !DM – Necklace.
