Ok, the title may be slightly misleading.  I am mostly stating the name of the pose I used today rather than making a statement on my masculinity.  Although, it works both ways.  Just didn't want you thinking I was a misogynist.  My mum and sister would never allow that!

*Cough.  Looks awkward*

Moving right along I have more items from Men Only Monthly to show you.  Great stuff and all for the boys.  Okay, we would share!

This photo reminded me of a movie.  You know the ones; girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love and agree to meet in Paris.  Boy doesn't show up.  Girl shrugs and then goes on to meet someone better or buys a cat retreat and lives happily ever after.  Wish I had a cat retreat.

While I wait for that to happen, here are some great items for you to enjoy.  *Imagine dramatic rain scene music here*.

I try to make up a story to go with each of my posts.  It helps me work out what is going on and what kind of light to use, pose etc etc.  Today's post pic makes me wonder if she is having a really bad day.  I get the feeling she is missing a motorbike and she is not happy about it at all.  If this was a movie the voice over would say something like, "She is a loner, minding her own business but they have taken what she loves the most and now it is personal!"  You know the vibe.

Whatever kind of day she is having at least she looks darn good!

I am not sure any day is a nice day for running, but in SL you don't get hot, sweaty or puffed so I will go with it.

It is important, however, to look awesome while doing any exercise so I made sure I have all the right gears for this event.

Today I am styling items from 7 Deadly Skins, American Bazaar, Rebellion, Image Essentials and Damselfly.  A good mix if I do say so myself.

Pants: [American Bazaar] - Him Sweats (MOM)

Why do I love these dystopian looking shots so much?  I take ages getting sorted for them with just the right look.  I want to look grungy, but not too grungy, soft and yet badass, lost and yet strong.  My brain goes through all this stuff before I am even ready to take the photos and then I take ages choosing a place to take the shots before I even begin thinking about the poses.  A shoot that could take half an hour ends up taking half a day at best.

Still, it is fun plus it keeps me amused and out of trouble.  Bonus.

It is time for bed and I am glad to curl up tonight.  Been a long day.  And check out how cute I look in this nightwear from Ducknipple.  It is a new release and is the Nighty vs1.  So pretty.  I wish I had this in RL.

Of course what is nightwear without perfect hair, jewellery and shoes.

Shoes:  Salvadori - Rose 'Origami' Velvet Sandals (TC)

I decided that this gorgeous bed from *CHEZ MOI* is just too nice to put inside and surround by stuff.  It is perfect for outside and enjoying the spring flowers and life.   It is called the Canopy Bed Nanai and you can wander over to Ultra and grab it.  Loads of fab poses for singles, couples and...well, you know. *WINK*

I love it when you can get the light to flow through a window like this with the windlight in perfect sync.  It can be quite a rare occasion without having to move whole builds to try and get it just right.  However, today just worked so I just put the items in the light to show them off.  Love it.

Some lovely items to show you today.  What am I saying?  I am always showing you great stuff.  Only the best for out readers!

Time to clean the car and, of course, in SL that means in heels and skimpy jean shorts.  What else?  Lucky for me I have this new Dafnis outfit to wear while getting all sudsy and hot.

Perfect day for washing this car and the best thing about it is I won't take any time at all because it is a pose prop from Fashiowl Poses!  One of the many offerings at this month's Tres Chic round.  Hope you have been on over and taken a peruse already!

Found this great little park in my wanderings.  I like looking about in SL.  There are some cool places around.  I know a few SL friends who just go to the same places all the time, and I feel like they are missing out on the best bits of SL.  What I am trying to say is "GET OUT AND EXPLORE!"

On that note, I know a great place to go and visit:  Men Only Monthly (did you see what I did there?)  You should also visit the Image Essentials...

"On Friday, March 24 going until Sunday, April 2 Image Essentials will be having a HUGE retirement sale. About 3/4 of the store is going on sale for only 25L. After the sale the poses will only be available through the Marketplace from now on.

We're making room for all the amazing new Bento poses coming."

It is important to remember that we need rest so make sure if you are out in the garden this spring to take the time to smell the roses and have a nap!  Sleep is good for us so you can use that as an excuse.  If anyone asks tell them Arya said so!  That should do it.

Today I have some fab outdoorsy (or could be indoors if you are so inclined) items to show you from some fabo stores in SL"  Shutter Field, Decor Junction, CHEZ MOI and Bee Designs.  Yay!

Hammock:  Decor Junction + Shutter Field - Hammock - Light (On9)
Tulips:  Bee Designs - Tulips (On9)
Seat:  *CHEZ MOI* - Park Bench Rainbow (The Chapter Four)
Potting Table:  Decor Junction + Shutter Field - Potting Table - light wood (Tres Chic - Watering Can, pots and seed box NOT included)

I am more of a coffee girl than any of the other things listed on this dress so it was the perfect wear and I was a proud coffee snob while wearing it!

In Aryaland coffee making is a very essential expertise, so much so that we let baristas in to the country over other skilled labour!  Weird indeed.

I love sitting in a cafe, enjoying a well made coffee while watching the world go by.  Perfect day and even better with a friend or a fab new book.  BLISS.

Every now and then I put on an outfit and honestly say, "WOW!" out loud.  It is just something a bit different or that suits my avi and today was one of those days.  I put on the Glitz jeans and top from Kenny Roland at Tres Chic, matched up some accessories and hair and now I am wondering why I would want to take it off...ever!  It is so cute and yet glam that I just love it.

Even Tyson commented on my look when we did the motorcycle post together and that is a very rare thing indeed!
