I hate to say it out loud...err...in print, but in SL we are on the slide down to autumn.  That means that the days are getting a little shorter and the sea a little cooler.  That makes the pool a natural alternative as the water warms up a bit quicker.  It is also time to make the most of those warmish evenings and partake in a cold beverage or two.

But the good news is that the new round of Tres Chic is ready to begin on the 17th, so put your shopping shoes on and get your wallet ready!

I love strong women in fiction.  I am a fan of the girl or woman saving herself and not requiring some random guy to do that for her.  Some of my favourite strong female characters are Hermione (books, not movies, where they downplayed her a bit), Granny Weatherwax, Tiffany Aching, Eskarina Smith and Susan Sto Helit (all from Terry Pratchett's Discworld books) and, of course, Arya Stark of the Song of Fire and Ice series.

I imagine my character today being one of those.  She doesn't look like she needs saving from anything.  She is tough, strong and self-sufficient.  That is not to say she doesn't like men, she just doesn't need one to rescue her from strife or do the tough stuff.  Love her.

Hair:  TUKINOWAGUMA - Cleto B (Tres Chic - starts on 17th)

Boots:  Wicca's Wardrobe - Naesala Boots (leg armour not shown - I wanted to show off the awesome boots)
Pose:  Eternal Dream - Lita


I am not sure why there is dancing on the streets today but I kind of wish it would happen.  It would be a hang of a lot nicer than what has been happening on the streets of the world of late.  Have we all gone mad?

Perhaps we could start a revolution of peace and dancing on the streets.  Sounds pretty nice to me.  Knowing we humans though we would argue about the music played and ruin it all.  I am imagining that Arya is dancing to a tune in her head.  Won't bother anyone and she can change the songs at will.

I love it when outfits just come ready to put on and go.  In the case of this one it came with shorts, tank and shoes.  This makes it easy as for me to just add some hair and then go take a photo.  The biggest decisions I had with this post was what colour outfit to put on and where I would go to take the pic.  Not rocket science type stuff.

This outfit says, "Sexy, but don't touch!"  Actually that is a good message for all.  It doesn't matter what I wear as a woman, there is no excuse to see that as a sign that we want to be approached or touched.

Mind you, I think a hint of modesty and decency might be required in this instance.  I am not sure a leather spiked jacket and lingerie is sensible outdoor garb.

I wanted to blog this deck and pool from Trompe Loeil, but then it somehow snowballed and I found all this other stuff that worked on it as well.  That means you can now relax on the lounger, have dinner on the table and chairs with a wine from the wine rack and have a dip in the pool  Be careful though as alcohol and water is never a safe mix.

Oh, dear.  Does anyone know a good psychologist or perhaps the name of a facility of some kind?  I may need it.

It has been a rough day.  My poses are cathartic.  Lucky there is no one about on this sim.  Can you be arrested in SL?  Possibly should be.

I am not sure why I put the title of this post in French and also why I chose to tell you 'I am Arya'.  Who knows why I do anything I do?  Maybe my look today had that French flair for style.

The funny part of it is that the more I thought about it and looked at the title, the more I started thinking of it in the same voice as, "I am Groot!"  Then I thought about the French dubbed version and got the giggles thinking about Groot saying, "Je suis Groot!"  Come on, that is funny right there.

Did I digress?

Let's just say it has been a long day and leave it at that.

I am crushing on this outfit.  It is simply gorgeous.  It is new from AnaMarkova at On9 and I am showing off the Dotty version in this stunning green.  I teamed it up with some shoes, hair and jewellery, also from On9, and so this fab event is a one-stop shop for today's ensemble!

On9, as the name states, starts on the 9th!

It has been a while since Ty and I did a pose together and when I saw this Photobomb Pose from Image Essentials I felt it required his assistance.  The pose is Photobomb v5 and it can be found, with the other versions at the Mesh Body Addict Fair.  They are all great and a good laugh.

Today is about what I am wearing, so ignore him.  In fact, look away from him so you won't have nightmares.

My pose is also from Image Essentials and is from the Demure set.

Picture this:  You are at a club or on a sim in SL and you see a hot (insert gender here) across the room or beach.  How do you let them know in a cool but classy way that you like their pixels?  Easy! You grab one of these Bento Hand Heart Gestures from Image Essentials and let your hands do the talking.

Wander over to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair and pick this up for a bargain price.  There is one for the ladies too.

Jacket:  INVICTUS -  Casual  Jacket - Green (Men Only Monthly)

I have had a blast putting these items together today.  I had the Trompe Loeil  Jessenia Poolhouse with Pews (faMESHed) to begin with and then the Decor Junction/Shutter Field Garden Path and Torches (On9) came in to blog so I put them together and then planted some trees.  Just as I was about to take the photos the gorgeous Victorian Summer Greenhouse from ChiC Buildings (On9) came in to blog.  I figured it would look fab with the other items, and it did!

All I had to do was add the {what next} Summer Window Boxes (VIP Gift) onto the greenhouse and "voila"!  These all look like they go together so naturally.

Oh, and I threw some decor items into the pool too.  Ring from CIRCA, Summer Beach Towels from Serenity Style,  Pool Floaty Kehts and Bag Pink Blossoms from 22769 [bauwerk].
