A Concubine’s Gift

When Elephant Dreams Picture_004

The women of a harem were never seen by any man outside of a eunuch who would act as servants and guards over the seraglio. These fabled beautiful creatures lived in a golden caged world of luxury and competition for the love and attention of one man! This favored concubine, who is veiled to our eyes, as custom dictates, has caught the eye of the Ottoman Sultan himself! The Sultan has sent to her, very valuable jewels fashioned in the likeness of his beloved elephant, Shaboo! As we sneak a peek into her quarters, we see a case has been delivered from the Jeweler of all Jewelers, Chop Zuey, which contains the exquisite “When Elephant Dreams Necklace and matching Horn Gold Tipped Earrings Set”! She is stunned into reverential silence as she gazes at the magnificent suite of jewels.

This amazing set is not only beautiful in appearance and on any who is lucky enough to wear it, but it is jewelry with a monumental purpose! Belle Roussel, for the second year and after great success with the first, has begun another campaign for the World WildLife Fund! She has created The regal “When Elephant Dreams Set“, which is a women’s necklace and earrings set in Diamonds and Black Moonstones which are set in Gold. Guys, she hasn’t forgotten about you! Belle has also created a gorgeous necklace for you as well, named “Panther Incensed“! It is a men’s necklace designed in Ruthinium, Peridots, and Diamonds set in Gold.

Both are available now at Chop Zuey! What is also awesome is that 100% of the sales of both are donated to the World Wildlife Fund! This campaign will run until December 31st. Please show your support for the animal creatures we share our home, Planet Earth, with by buying these phenomenal jewelry pieces!

THE GENOA_002

When you look up the word “luxury” in the dictionary, one of the meaning is a state of great comfort and extravagant living. The Genoa by Master Builder, Cain Maven for the Quantum Luxury Homes Series, is the measurement of that!

When you open the front doors entering the great foyer…the double staircase immediately gives you a taste of the grandeur of what you are about to experience!

As with a fine 4 star course meal, your eyes begin to savor and devour the individual dishes presented. This mansion also compels you to look at the sumptuous delights it offers! On either side of the great foyer, with the double staircase that Scarlett O’Hara would kill to posses, are 2 rooms, one side which leads into the massive kitchen, that any SL Chef would be proud to call their own! Looking above at the richly coved ceilings as you saunter straight through the entry foyer, you will find yourself in a massive size room, that has several beautifully framed arched Palladian influenced door way entrances leading off to various other rooms of the home. Continuing your walk through to the next huge room which has a wall of 2 levels of beautiful Palladian Style Windows that frames around an amazing detailed glass door, that leads out to the patio pool area. You can host celebrity status news worthy parties on this patio, as space will not be an issue here as befitting such a house as The Genoa…there are even fire pits with, comfortable padded seating, on either end of this fabulous patio! The patio also has been adorned with with several large circle planters as well!At night, you can sit out among the stars just to enjoy the ambience and pride of ownership, you will feel, owning such a magnificent home as The Genoa!

THE GENOA_012

One of the rooms off the central floor area is your very own private media room for screening your favorite movies, watching your favorite programs, and hosting fun filled media parties! Be the envy of your crowd when you proudly unveil this room! Also, on this side of the main floor is another bedroom and a huge bathroom!

The mansion is chocked full of details that lends to the luxurious feel of the home! There are 3 interior fountains, plus 1 exterior one. The sound of water is so very soothing to the soul! As you casually stroll up one of the double staircases, you are treated to the sight of another marble fountain that flank both corner edges of the interior center foyer where you will find yet another gorgeous fireplace. The main area of the upstairs’ outer floor areas are both accented by Brown and White Banisters which are the perfect accents that just magnifies the beauty and attention to details, you see continuously in this house! These open spaces are but a prelude to either side of the floor where you will find 2 phenomenal suites with anterooms and bedrooms, and, smiling, walk in closets ladies! Both sides boast a beautiful marble, porcelain, glass, and wood bathroom.

This is just a smidge of what you will find in The Genoa by Master Builder, Cain Maven. I have purposely left out certain view pictures of this home’s rooms, exterior and interior, as I want you to go and experience The Genoa feeling!. You must see this house for yourself, as you will be blown away by this very palatial home, and will want to be able to call it your own! The mansion  includes 2 suites with anterooms, fireplaces, and bedrooms. The home has a total of 6 fireplaces, full set of appliances in the kitchen, Animated poses in showers, bath tubs, bathroom sinks, kitchen stools, and patio seats, running water in the taps, and the famous Maven Duck! There are also
• Two bedrooms
• Three bathrooms
• Kitchen
• Dining room
• Breakfast room
• Living room
• Great room
• Family room
• Lounge
• Media room
• Study
• Front room
• Foyer

Study and front room may be repurposed as bedrooms, for a total of six.

The mansion is perfect if you have a family, or just by yourself! Laughing, we can never have enough space or prims!

The house has one of the best Home Control Systems I have ever seen, which is easy to use!The security system controls access to house, adjusts the window opacity and tint, turns off, on, and dims the lights. You can set the lights to automatically turn on or off based on sim time of day. the lockable doors can be set to open automatically too.

MATERIALS

This build employs Materials technology to improve realism on relevant surfaces. To see the effect you will need a materials-compatible viewer with the Advanced Lighting Model enabled. For best results, enable Ambient Occlusion and set Shadows to None.

Land impact: 790 (704 without the kitchen, bathrooms, and media room interior)

Come home to The Genoa!

International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women, November 25th…. NO TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!

DESIREME SLSN

International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women, November 25th…. NO TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!

On November 25, 1960, three Dominican sisters, political activists known as the Hermanas Mirabal, were brutally assassinated for opposing the Trujillo dictatorship. The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women remembers this day.

Since 1981, as a tribute to the Mirabal sisters, as well as global recognition of gender violence, the date 25 November has been marked by women’s activists as a day against violence against women. Following the adoption of the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women by resolution 48/104 of 20 December 1993, the United Nations General Assembly, by resolution 54/134 of 17 December 1999, designated 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, inviting governments, international organizations and NGOs to organize activities on the day designed to raise public awareness of the problem of maltreatment of women.

In 1991, the United Nation’s General Assembly designated November 25 as International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. For more information on this day, click here.

Violence against women is an international epidemic. According to the United Nations, up to 70 percent of women will experience violence in their lifetimes. According to the World Bank, women ages 15-44 are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than cancer, car accidents, war, and malaria.

The most common form of violence against women is physical, sexual, or emotional violence by an intimate partner. In the United States, more than 3 women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends every day.

Why This International Day?
•Violence against women is a human rights violation
•Violence against women is a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of persisting inequalities between men and women
•Violence against women impacts on, and impedes, progress in many areas, including poverty eradication, combating HIV/AIDS, and peace and security
•Violence against women and girls is not inevitable. Prevention is possible and essential
•Violence against women continues to be a global pandemic. Up to 70 per cent of women experience violence in their lifetime.

Facts and Figures
•Up to 70 per cent of women experience violence in their lifetime.
•Between 500,000 to 2 million people are trafficked annually into situations including prostitution, forced labor, slavery or servitude, according to estimates. Women and girls account for about 80 per cent of the detected victims
•It is estimated that more than 130 million girls and women alive today have undergone FGM/C, mainly in Africa and some Middle Eastern countries.
•The cost of intimate partner violence in the United States alone exceeds $5.8 billion per year: $4.1 billion is for direct medical and health care services, while productivity losses account for nearly $1.8 billion.
