These Boots are Made for Walking

Iris_005

Hello readers! I hope you’ve all had wonderful holidays if you celebrated and enjoyed time with loved ones. Today I am doing something a little different. Pictured below is NOT Safe For Work. In the past I have not felt comfortable sharing pieces like this but I have been blessed with the support of good friends and family and feel like exploring this side a little bit. Changes in my Review Policy and About pages will reflect this. This post is dedicated to my friend Myst, creator of Mishmash Fusion. Take the jump below if you feel like it!

Saying All the Things I’m Thinking…

sexy bat room_001

Hello lovely people! The Cart Sale’s 10th Birthday/Anniversary round is nearing its end but I wanted to share a few more things to find there. All of the creators have really put in a ton of extra effort to make this a special event so don’t miss it before it ends on November 1st!

I have been feeling a little bit sexy lately and this is partly due to the new lingerie set I got from Dark Water Designs. This set is a gacha with babydoll dresses and panties that you can mix and match or if you snag the ultra rare, it is the fatpack of every solid lace and print option. The rares are fatpacks of the solid lace OR the print options. My favorite is the black and gray print version but there are many other pretty options to collect. For this post, my special man is guest starring and he seemed to like this set quite a bit as well. Sizes for this gacha are available for the Maitreya, all three Bellezas, both Slinks, TMP, and Standard bodies. Each pull is only 20L so play have fun playing this gacha and tease your man ladies! Or the fellas can gift them to their special someone too. 😉

Another lovely piece I found at the Cart Sale is from ..::battle fairy::.. and comes in several pattern versions. It fits nicely but careful how you lay, you may want some panties ladies! Mesh models included in each print version are made for Maitreya, all three Bellezas, both Slinks, TMP, and Standard bodies. Standard mesh models come in five sizes. If you’re feeling daring, grab this gem while it is on sale!

Some of the furniture I used in the first photo are from events that have been going on in October. On the wall is a clock from An Lema that I thought was spooky fun and it is one of several items they have at the Cart Sale. Unless you are good at scripting/building, moving it around is a bit tricky because the pendulum seems to only swing on one rotation. For decor though, it suits the mood of the room plenty for me.

I also wanted to share this piece from Dictatorshop that I got in the October Bound Box. The Venus Cubed Ladies Entertainment Center is excellent for teasing, pleasing, and lounging around. While animations are heavily geared towards females, there are still plenty of options for males to enjoy including the couples’ animations. There are not couple’s pg poses except for the dances so keep little ones away from this or tuck it away in your playroom. Textures can be changed via the Dictatorshop logo on the back as well as security options. If you’d like, you can also try adding your own textures to it for more versatility. If you missed out on this Bound Box, check out their HQ for past boxes. Check here for info on subscription boxes.

From Vicarious Youth at the Cart Sale, you’ll find a few Halloween themed outfits. Some are matching for moms and their little girls, some are for teens or adults.  The outfit I’m wearing is Resting Witch Face and comes in five standard mesh sizes and mesh models for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. Bottoms and tops are combined so it’s easy fitting.

sexy bat room_008

On my shoulder is a little Voodoo gacha from =EC Designs= that they made for Cart Sale. Each one is scripted to randomly say something or you can click it to pester it into saying something as well. Voodoo dolls are also customizable if you want them to say something else. Collect them all!

sexy bat room_007

Lastly I want to share another item from =EC Designs= that is at the Cart Sale. For 50L, this piece has a LOT of animations to help you get cozy and comfy for the season. As someone who likes to let out her inner cat, this lounger is purrrfect for curling up with a good book or with your sweetie to enjoy some fresh air. All of these poses are PG so no worries if you have little ones. They may want you to put it in their room too because they can sit on top!

Cart Sale ends November 1st so hurry stop on by before it’s too late to swipe these bargains up!

Sparks Fly From Her Finger Tips

nevermore_001

Hi there guys! I hope you are all well and enjoying the fall colors. I know I am. I am also enjoying the fantastic creations merchants are putting out for the season. Right now the Cart Sale is having a special event for their 10 year Anniversary sale. On top of their usual 10L sale there are also gachas! This event will be going on longer than normal to give everyone plenty of time to shop. I have some peeks at what you can find there.

nevermore_008

One of my favorite pieces this round is the gacha set from Mishmash Fusion. The Cobwebbed Dress has rich colors overlayed with spiderwebs that give it just a subtle spooky feel and the ruffle trim is nice and soft so you’ll still look cute. Each color comes in standard fitted and mesh sizes for for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus; and eBody bodies. There are no rares so be sure to play it a few times! Only 20L a pull! To match the dress, I’m wearing The Dark Fae’s Samba heels which come fitted for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet. The rare for this gacha is a fatpack will every color option.

nevermore_003

My wonderful friend Mits picked up another dress from Mishmash Fusion that is on sale, the Lillian Dress Day of the Dead in pink. This dress comes in the same sizes as the Cobwebbed Dress and is covered in sugar skulls on the skirt. You’ll find matching shoes shaped like coffins for standard, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

Both Mits and I are wearing nail polish from Koffin Nails that are on sale at the Cart Sale. They come in appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and omega. I’m wearing the special Pumpkin Spice Latte nail polish because I am a sucker for pumpkins and anything harvest-y. Check out our nails!

nevermore_009

The living room set is from =EC Designs= and is called the Hideaway Parlor Set, which is comprised of five pieces sold for 10L apiece. A chair, couch, coffee table, side table, and lamp for 50L is a fantastic bargain. The couches come in in a version with a blanket and leaf pattern on the storage baskets and a version without the blanket and a pumpkin on the basket. There are PG couples and single sits in the couch and single sits in the chairs so there are plenty of options for everyone in the family.

On the wall are pictures that come in a set inspired by Edgar Allen Poe created by *PAN*. Also included in the set is a shelf that is not shown and the Nevermore lettering on the table. The pumpkins are from a gacha by Sequel with just one rare that I found to be darling and perfect for adding a touch of Halloween without going scary. The candelabra in the corner has a menu that let’s you pick the metal texture, candle flame type, and light colors. Even when it’s not spooky season, these pieces are great for any home.

nevermore_010

Lastly I wanted to share the Crystal Skull that I have on the coffee table. Made by Dark Knight Decor, this fun rotating skull in a crystal will read your fortune when touched. Varying messages are pre-loaded into the notecard contents but it is fully customizeable so you can create your own fortunes! Or make some to scare your friends. Just remember what you put out comes back to you threefold!

That is all I have to share today but I will have more for you soon. Do not wait! Go find these goodies now!

She Gazed with a Loving Beauty

Twisted Hunt Pic_007

Fall is officially and as many of you know, it is my favorite season. I love the cooler temps, the changing colors on the leaves, everything pumpkin spice, and Halloween! I also really connect with the idea of the life cycle and what this time represents in that cycle. It’s a reminder that all things end but there is still beauty in that ending. Speaking of endings, the Twisted Hunt is fast coming to a close but I wanted to share a little from the hunt which ends September 30.

Twisted Hunt Pic_008

My friend Myst at Mishmash Fusion is a merchant for the Twisted Hunt and is shop #42 on the hunt path. For this round, she’s made a gorgeous set of outfits for both females and males to wear inspired by the Victorian Goth hunt theme. Ladies can find themselves twirling about in this vision of red and black top/skirt set that together fits like a dress. On the back of the top is a lovely corset lace detail that tastefully shows a bit of skin that I just love. The textures on this outfit, called Remy’s Song, look great especially with advanced lighting on. Sizes included are classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and fitted models for Maitreya, both Slinks, Belleza bodies, both Tonics, and TMP bodies. Men will find a dashing suit in red and black that comes in classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and a pair of black shoes to complete the look. The stripes running down the Knives’ Suit are nice and sharp and will have any man feeling tall. Other color variations of both outfits are available in the gacha machines as well as other goodies.

Twisted Hunt Pic_006

I also wanted to share a new item from Dictatorshop. The Driftwood Swing is a lovely addition to any yard and functions both as landscaping and a cozy spot for cuddles and more. Currently it is being sold exclusively at The Cosmopolitan Event which runs from now until October 7. While at the event, you can get this incredible piece 20% off in either Adult or PG only versions (Adult version includes the PG version). What I love about this set is that the animations are all great as I expect but also that the singles poses can be changed independently from the other person sitting with you. There’s so many choices I have no doubt you will love it like I do. In the menu for the Adult version, there are all of the PG poses as well as a fully loaded adult menu with both Vanilla and BDSM options. For more info on this set, see it inworld at the shop or check out Dee’s blog post here. Get it at the event while you can!

Twisted Hunt Pic_009

A few other things of note, I’ve changed the logo for the blog and I’d like to give a huge shoutout/thank you to my friend Myst Cobalt for designing it for me. 🙂 I also want to remind you all that Cart Sale is coming up October 11 and it is a special round. Cart Sale is celebrating 10 years! There will be gifts, there will be gachas, and there will be lots of great deals! I will be covering the event so stay tuned!

I’ve Got the Eye of the Tiger

Eye of the Tiger_001

Hello lovely people! I am feeling pretty good and loving my summer. I hope everyone in the USA had a happy and safe Independence Day. Mine was pretty relaxing. Just a few thoughts I would like to share today.

If you read my last post, you’ll note I have been refocusing on what makes me happy these days. Putting myself first. Last week I got the itch to take a sexy photo or two, so I did and I started thinking about something. How do you start putting yourself first? Easy. Your voice.

Eye of the Tiger_004

Okay maybe not so easy. Actually really not easy at times. Particularly if you really worry about what the people around you think. Sometimes it is really hard to tell someone what they need to hear. It’s hard to tell others what we want. We want people to like us so we say “Yes” even though we really want to say “NO.”

At times, it may not be easy, but if you use your voice, you will be heard. And I don’t mean just once in awhile. Consistently and honestly (and mostly politely unless they’re being a complete imbecile) say what you mean with your voice. Family and friends can support and care for you but they are unable to reach out and give you what you want. They can’t read your mind. They can help in some ways but the only one who can truly help get you where you want to be is yourself. So do what I am doing or trying to do… Roar.

Honestly, this post is a shoutout to all the lovely ladies in my life that are going through hard times right now. I may not have gone through the same situation, but we all go through rough times and we sink. We need reminders that we are worth it. We deserve happiness. We deserve love. We deserve to do whatever makes our hearts glow. Don’t let anyone make you believe otherwise. Even when we make mistakes, keep going, and don’t stop. Continue following your heart and the rest will follow.

Eye of the Tiger

My look today is inspired by my inner Tigress and the empowering lyrics of Katy Perry’s Roar. My dress and lingerie set are from Blueberry in the Date Night set. Mesh fitted models included are for Maitreya, 3 Belleza bodies, and 2 Slink bodies. This set comes in several colors and the fatpack option includes exclusive color options. I recently went to Hair Fair and grabbed Aschera made by Runaway. The rings and shells on the hair have several color options and add an extra exotic touch that has me feeling sexy and confident. Grab it at Hair Fair to support Wigs for Kids! Only a few days left.

So cheers to my girlies (and the gents too!)! You know who you are. Without you I would not be where I am today and you’ve certainly helped me find my roar. Love to you all and see you soon. ❤

Made My Skin a Little Bit Thicker

Boardwalk_011

A little bit of a rant or musing to start things off today followed by a special giveaway to celebrate reaching 50 blog posts! Read on to find out about the giveaway!

Lately I have been reminiscing on some of the events of the past year or so. Remembering the people that have moved in and out of my life and the lessons I have taken from them. It is incredible what an influence some people have had in such a short time while other lessons came from mistakes or taking a wrong turn. My morning has been a bit quieter than usual as I remember those lessons.

I know my last few posts have been a bit more upbeat and summery cheerful, so this post probably seems a bit less peppy. As a human, I can only be cheerful for so long before another obstacle gets thrown in my path that tries to knock me down. But you know what? I will keep fighting for the happiness I know I deserve. Maybe I need a day or two to get back into gear, but I will never stop swinging my bat at each ball that tries to strike me out. So my adventure for today took me to a baseball field in Chicago where I practiced focusing on hitting each ball out of the park and refocusing my mind on what is important. What is that you ask? Well… Me.

Boardwalk_012

Now that might sound selfish, but consider this. If you spread yourself too thin, trying to please everyone you come across, you can never be happy because you have no time for yourself and what makes you happy. This was something I’ve had to learn and really, I’m still working on it. My health and happiness are first and foremost before I can be expected to help others. I will always make time for those who are closest to me; yet I have reevaluated who those people are and adjusted my priorities accordingly to give myself the best chance of smiling every day. Life is too short. Spend it doing what you love and with the people you love.

Boardwalk_013

So, you’re probably wondering by now if i will just get to the clothes I’m wearing. Don’t fret! Today I am wearing a fun T-shirt dress from Dark Water Designs that is currently at the Cart Sale in three colors and a couple solid knit versions. Included are five standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza Isis & Venus, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. I really love how this dress fits and feels a bit sporty. The small clipping on the leg is really only visible because of the pose I used. Wear it to a game or at home while getting comfy on the couch. I paired it with some of my favorite sneakers from REIGN and was set for the day. Find this dress and more at the Cart Sale before it ends July 5th!

Boardwalk_015

Now on to the giveaway that I mentioned. My sponsors =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have kindly donated a couple gift cards to help me mark the occasion of reaching 50 blog posts. The prizes are a 500L Gift Card to =EC Designs= and a 400L Gift Card for Mishmash Fusion. If you browse my blog and Flickr, you’ll see some of the items of theirs I have blogged in the past. How to enter to win? Comment below with what you enjoy doing in the summer and your secondlife username. I will be using a random name picker to select a winner who will be announced in the comments, Facebook Page, Plurk, and Twitter. Deadline to enter will be Saturday July 8th at 5:00PM SLT.

Until next time! ~ Autumn

I Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

Boardwalk_010

Another gorgeous day here! I hope you all are enjoying the sun and staying cool. Today I want to share more great finds from the Cart Sale to use while you try to cool off in the heat wave that is upon us.

Boardwalk_006

Like I mentioned in my last blog post, I am excited for different summer adventures but this weekend got to be a little too hot! So I decided I needed to find a good way to cool off and well, the best way to do that is around water. One of the other items I found from =EC Designs= at the Cart Sale is this awesome raft. Built from sturdy lumber and decked out with comfy pillows and a blanket to lay on while you sunbathe, this raft is perfect for floating down the stream or hanging out on the lake. A raft can hold two singles, or a couple and has animations for singles for females and males as well as couple poses. Poses are adjustable so you can find just the right spot to cuddle your honey or get just the right amount of water on your toes.

Boardwalk_002

From Mishmash Fusion I am showing you a few different versions of the Xanadu Trikini. I invited a few friends over to chill with me and we turned it into a swimsuit party on a couple of my new rafts. First up, my lovely friend Cara is wearing the Blue Paisley version of the Trikini for Slink Physique. Miri is wearing a special hunt edition in red on the Maitreya Lara body. Find this lovely piece until the hunt ends this Friday (though Myst told me she may leave it out longer). I am wearing the Blue Transparent version on my Maitreya Lara body. Sizes included for all versions are Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, eBody, Standard Large, and Standard Small. General fit seems nice on the Slink Physique body but there is minor clipping on the tummy and hips of the Maitreya when moving. This is in part due to shape, different ao movements, and the way the original mesh creator built the mesh. Please try a demo to be sure of what you are going to see before purchasing. The transparent versions are very transparent and do show all bits so wear with caution! Or tempt that eye candy with it. 😉

That is all for now! I hope to have another post up soon with a few more things to share but don’t wait! Go check out the Cart Sale now while everything is at bargain prices.
