As said in another blog post, all sl friends are away, but she can surround herself with her animal friends. Animals friends (i mean in rl now) don’t disappoint. you. They are super companions, always there and always happy to see you.

Nic is at the beach late at night at the new outdoor bar from The Jewel Garden. Available in the gacha at SENSE. Also at the SENSE event are the palms and wild grasses from the Little Branch.
I placed succulents from ~ASW~ available at SENSE  near and at the bar.
The succulents in a shell are a gift in the store from dust.bunny for readers from Gallant Magazine. A very stylish magazine in my opinion.
The delicious raspberry pancake from Hangry is available at Kustom9. The ice creams are also from Hangry in the main store for the Saturdays Sale, a fat pack for 75ld.

Nic is showing you her new dress from [NC] Nocturnal Couture at SENSE ( in more colors available)  as well as the tatttoo from .: Vegas :. , the clutch from Overt. and the barefoot sandals from Gemini (comes with a color hud for stones and metals).

banditos

snapshot_2367ab

With her banditos as her guards to the wine tasting. They can be very dangerous those Imperial Doberman Pinchers. As a kid i was afraid when i walked to school and passed a doberman, who was barking, jumping and growling behind a fence. The Animesh Companion Imperial Doberman from [Rezz Room] does the same, but now he defends me. The animations of the dog are so outstanding good! The walking, jumping and the animations of the head are gorgeous. You have the possibility to put a muzzle on. For the muzzle and band you can choose a color with the hud. Barking and growing can be put on or off. In Nic’s hand you can see the leash.
By the way when you know how to behave to such a dog in real life he will be very friendly and a good companion.
Yesterday Nic was on the balcony of the Sunny Lombardia Villa (available in the gacha of Elfico Penso). Now she is in the wine cellar, that you can win in the same gacha. The big barrels with the red and yellow borders and the grape platter are in the gacha too
I placed a wine tasting bar fro unKindness in the cellar. Comes with the mirrors, the candelabra’s ( without candles) the runner and the potted plant. You can buy a full set or the bar, plants and accessories separate. The bar comes in 3 colors. Available at FaMESHed at the moment.

Nic is wearing a soft velor dress from You by Ge Myles. The dress comes with the boots. Many good colors are in the hud. The skin is again the skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins, that i showed yesterday. Available at SENSE. Nic’s hair is the newest group gift from Truth.

joy and pleasure is a state of the mind

Yesterday i listened to a talk of Steven Grant in sl at the Bhoddicitta Zendo at the sim Hikaru. The topic was feeling incomplete. It was an interesting speech, like the other speeches that i heard from him.
What does it feel like when I believe I lack something? How does my body feel when I need someone or something to complete me? Our mind influences our feelings and the needs of our body too.
We can influence our feelings with our mind.

And it’s obvious that Nic is influenced by a very positive mind today. She is grateful for the blessings in her life. Enjoying the good friends she has in sl and the pleasure and love she gets. Enjoying the special contacts she can have here with people from all over the world. It’s such an amazing fantasy-and real world in sl. Real because all in sl is influenced by real persons.

Nic is standing on the balcony of a Mediterranean home from the gacha, named Sunny Lombardia,  from Elfico Penso (177 LI). You know may be the beautiflul Mediterranean manor and mansion from the gacha of 8f8. But this is also beautiful but different. This is a large sort of house and the walls inside are different. I placed two houses near each other at picture 3 so you can see more sides of the house. I placed the loggia at the balcony. The gacha has also a RARE Wine Cellar with curved ceiling and all sorts of wines for on the wall in the cellar. You can try the gacha at SENSE. On the picture you can also see the table and chairs, the grape plate, porcelain service, urn with flowers hanging and standing.
The barrels with cats from .:Tm:. Creation are  available at SENSE. The whole set is behind Nic on the balcony. You can unlink the set. Near Nic i placed a part of the set. The set has many animations.
The dog is from TLC, a companion dog available at the Cosmopolitans Sales Room. You can click the dog for more fur options. See behind Nic for example one with another color. The doves from TLC are at Flourish in the package of the wall fountain.( 99ld!)
On the table a bread basket from nutmeg., available at Belle. The Margarita pitcher from Dahlia is available at Uber.

Nic is wearing the skin Sasia from 7 Deadly s[K]ins available at SENSE. Her outfit from *SK* is also available at SENSE. Available in many colors.
The hair is a gift at the Hair Fair from Exile, a fat pack.

The good things in life are the things you love.
In the pictures you can see some of the things Nic likes. Her patio with barbecue, delicious food and wine, the dogs, sunny days, a bath, a nice new dress and a nice choker, her fascination for the “mysterious and irrational” Pi and dreaming about all what she loves while sitting on her hanging seat.

You can find at the Sense event the dress of Ghee and the lipstick of Go makeup. Her choker of amias is available at the Belle event. Comes with a good color hud.
At the Boardwalk Event are the patio of Salacity, the lemon espaliers of Illusions of Grandeur and the furniture of Dench Designs: BBQ and Prep Table ( with accessories), rattan seats (with color hud) and  table with accessories, fountain  and the free outdoor lighting.
The shabby hanging seat (out at the Summer Meadow Event) and the sandstone rock bath (out at the Cosmopolitans Sales Room) are from DJ/SF. Both with many animations.

hot peacock

snapshot_1751ab

The rain is gone and it’s very hot. 26 degrees Celcius today. And the next three days 32, 36 and 36 degrees Celcius. That’s pretty hot for Holland.
Often my experiences or moods are reflected on my blog. So for now the sunny hot pictures are appropriate.

To be able to see the peacock tattoo properly you need to be naked or wearing a high-cut pantie or bikini pantie or a long dress with an open side of the skirt.
Because i am a blogger for the Sense event i got this sexy leather set with gems. It’s a bit out of my comfort zone to choose this. Not because it’s a sexy set ( i like to show sexy outfits), but with the large bijous it has a glitter and glam style, that i don’t show so much here on my blog. However the set is sexy and perfect for showing the tattoo. It’s a bit a vintage bathing suit. Nic is wearing again the skin STARSHINE of 7 Dealy s[K]ins at the Dubai Event. Love the color of the cheeks. The hair is a free hair of no.match. You can find the box upstairs. You need to be in the group.

For the decor i used furniture of Aphrodite/<Heart Homes>, available at Sense. See for the total set the quick made picture below. The style is vintage in my opinion.
