When I saw and entered this beautiful modern luxury home, I immediately felt that it truly fits the musical definition for its name, Adagio, which means slowly, leisurely, and gracefully! As you walk through the house, you feel you can’t rush through it. It is a home that beckons you to just take your time, be leisure, enjoy the three levels of graceful luxury that Cain Maven has designed for your visual pleasure and physical use. This designer/builder is truly a master builder! The Adagio Modern Luxury Home by Maven Homes is an example of why!
Even before you enter the home, you and your guests are greeted on one side by a illusion pool that flows from inside the house’s double faced 2 story fireplace to the small pool outside with a delightful water spray. On the other side of the impressive entrance that have planters on either side of the slate stairs, there is another outdoor patio. There is also a house controller outside in the entry for your convenience. Through the doors, as you enter the home, to your left is a small walkway over the water that leads to the outside pool. You are immediately impressed by the sheer size of living space. Mr. Maven did a magnificent job of combining glass, natural woods, and stone.
There is a entertainment bar with stools, with an glass door exit behind it to stylishly go outside. On the first floor there are very few walls to interrupt the flow of the space. On this level, there is a door to an outdoor small private swimming pool, great for entertaining, or just taking your leisure with the kids. The room also boasts a clear see through 2 story fireplace which makes a awesome spot for sitting and enjoying the fireplace, as you watch the water play that trickles down and out to the outdoor illusion pool. The huge kitchen allows you to be part of the action on the first floor. Nothing but the best appliances, double door refrigerator, dishwasher, counter top cook top, stove, and microwave! there is a sink with running water! Lots of counter space and cabinets…there’s even plenty of room for the gang to join you in the kitchen as there is a breakfast counter top with stools too!
As you walk up the glass enclosed staircase, even the most jaded cannot help but be impressed with the layout of the home. The second floor has a luxurious large bathroom, there are several rooms with balcony access, the second level of that amazing fireplace! There is so much space in this house that you will never feel crowded no matter how many you have in your family! The doors throughout the house are wood and smoked glass which adds even more drama to the already beautiful space! Throughout the home you will find house controllers, which controls the access, security, lights, windows, and doors for the entire house. You will never want to leave this home and it will quickly become the gathering place for your family and friends! The built in curves, the shapes, nooks, and crannies are just phenomenal and fit into this house perfectly as visual beauty. Continuing up the stairs to the 3rd level, you enter an open area, that is practically all glass and has a web based television upon the wall. There are many blinds placed throughout the home including on the third level, to shade if you wish. Outside on this level there is a huge pool, balcony space, and a another room. This house is wonderfully designed and built, with the upmost care to details, structure, and with many amenities that make your comfort and visual stimulation foremost!

Having been invited recently to be a guest at a gorgeous villa, I accepted immediately! The proud homeowner gave me the grand tour. The last stop was their bedroom, so I would know the location if I needed anything. While in the magnificently furnished room, I noticed a open diary on the table. Throughout the day’s planned activities my mind kept going back to that open diary! What was in it, which of my hosts it belongs to, am I mentioned in it…my curiosity was KILLING ME!!! That evening my hosts had planned a party and I pleaded a headache and went upstairs to my suite, which is at the opposite end of the villa, so I crept across the balcony and went into their room…..
Hey, its not like you haven’t done it!!!! Looked in a medicine cabinet, peeked in a drawer, an opened purse…smiles I hope they don’t miss this apple!
This story is possible because of the amazing prop table designed by the fabulous and very talented Kay Weston of Image Essentials! The name of this fun prop is The Diary. You touch the compass on the table for the pose, and you touch the table for a magnifying glass. I had fun making up this story using this really cool table prop! You can use this in all sorts of scenes for photography, role play, decorative…you are only limited by your imagination! Guess what…..its free, that is if you can find the clues to find it on Madpea: Cry of the Peacock Hunt!!!
MADPEA: CRY OF THE PEACOCK HUNT AUGUST 1st – 31st

The fortune teller Madame Peacock is back from investigating the mystery of Room 326 and has discovered the shocking truth! However, not all is lost. She needs the help of a brave detective with a sharp wit to face all odds and free the victims trapped souls. With the help of her tarot cards and your investigative skills, the future looks bright, but what does fate have in store for you?

I have been really busy in real life and yet I still haven’t come down to Earth. I am MISS V♛ EGYPT!!! When I found out in real life I screamed…lol!!!! I was so nervous when I first thought about applying for the contest. My modeling career will be a year old on July 29th and I knew that there would be awesome top models in the contest, but after a thorough talking to and encouragement from my closest friends, I closed my eyes and hit the enter button to send my picture to Mr. Frolic Mills. I am not a contest enterer, but the Miss Virtual World Pageant is no ordinary contest…it is THE CONTEST!!!!
My picture was selected on my very first try….I was very SHOCKED, to say the least, over that! Then the hunt for a wow dress began. I looked around for dresses but my mind kept taking me back to my Zanze’s Silver Mirrors Gown. It is a sequin dream that I am simply in love with! I tore through my inventory to see what I could put with it. I found my Orage *OC* Diamond Dream gown and begin to play around with that coming up with the dress you see. Silver gloves are hard to find in Second life, so I took my pair of AZUL Eve Onyx gloves and layer my Chop Zuey Ling Ling Diamond Bracelet over that. I donned my Chop Zuey Dangle Diamond Earrings, although pretty, I felt I was still lacking! I took an old feathered star hair ornament I had and paired my WTG Dragon Fes earpiece with that and made my own fascinator. I liked, very much, how it turned out.
It was with bated breathe that I walked the stage, when it was my turn. It felt like I had not breathe at all during that whole time! It was like a sweet fast blur. The announcement came fairly fast as to the results. I began getting ims, but I hadn’t received the notice, that’s sl for you! When I got the notice from the group…I screamed so loudly in real life that my hubby came running because he thought I had fallen…of course I let him think that, smiling!
I am very proud to be representing the country of Egypt. I have visited there several times and love the culture and history. I am very proud to be in the Miss Virtual World Contest PERIOD!!! I will be journaling about my experiences during the contest. My precious friends, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, for all the encouragement and support! My heart is still beating fast and I am still in seventh heaven over the announced results and I look forward with much excitement, to traveling the road to the crown and all that comes with it!

I am reposting this from a notecard I received inworld. I love Donna Flora beautiful creations and want to let other lovers of her beautiful things know what is happening to her….what can happen to any of us! Please read and show your support, if you can.
I apologize for the lack of a personal greeting. I confess I am sending this to many people. In fact, I would be happy if this were passed on to you from a third party, the point is reaching out and asking for your help..
One of the greatest facets of Second Life is how the many interest groups develop a sense of community, an international family of interest and enthusiasm. Never is that more present than when one of our own needs our help. Right now, Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora needs the support and encouragement of our community.
She has cancer. Breast cancer has metastasized to the bone and invaded her spine. She rallied last summer and had a brief and unexpected remission. It’s back and she is no longer strong enough to create her wonderful jewels and dresses. In fact, she has not been in SL much at all as it is too taxing. She is now dependent on home nursing and has placed her hope in alternative treatment options that are not covered by her national health insurance.
Folks have come together to help raise funds to defray her expenses. A sim has been donated and people are raising their hands to help. I hope you can help, too.
We are looking for designers to volunteer to offer 1 or more items for sale at the Love Donna Flora event from July 25th through August 11th. The first item must be a 100% donation item and the others can be 50%, 75% or 100%. Designers can apply here: http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/designers
Please explore the web site, there are stories and a place for people to send messages as well as a section on our effort to be as transparent as possible.
I know that not everyone can afford to donate. I also know not everyone is comfortable with personal fundraisers. That’s understandable and people should feel no obligation to contribute to the event financially. The struggle against cancer requires money, but it also requires hope and love. Everyone can help with hope and love.
You can lift her spirits and remind her that she is loved by sending Squinternet a message and sharing your hope and concern. http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/messages-for-squinternet/
There’s even a Flickr pool for posting pictures http://www.flickr.com/groups/2255942@N21/

I decided to stay at the super posh I Cost Megabucks Resort. I am here for relaxation…..er um, smiling and looking both ways whispers….shopping addiction. In between the shock treatments for my over the top shopping habits…they show me my 60 page black amex bill!!!! The horror, fanning herself and trying to slow her heart palpations!!!! After that I needed a drink! I almost had to wait for my frou frou drink to be brought to me. I know, I know, it is behind me, but if you are paying what I am paying for this place, you wouldn’t reach for anything either! I saw the cutest cabana boy in the skimpiest of speedos coming towards me. He was like a walking sports illustrated dream! The physics alone was worth the price of admission! As I wait for him to reach me, I know I look very desirable in my Paisley Daisy Joeys mesh Dior Earth Angel Bikini & Cover up (C. Dior Infl.) The Queen of Sheer has designed this very delicious ensemble that is very appealing to the senses. You cannot help but to be seen as the siren by the pool when you appear in this beautiful set. It comes in several eye catching colors. The fabric is sheer enough to show just what you need to without over exposure! After all a lady shows just enough and leaves something to the imagination and Paisley Daisy designs does just that with class and style to spare! You must stop by Paisley Daisy and see the many gorgeous and exquisite creations she has in her shop. Not only are her designs beautiful, but they are also affordable!
Instead of the hunk cabana boy getting me a drink, he hands me a bill for Resort I Cost Megabucks….when I saw all the zeros, I was cured!
