Hold My Heart

hold-my-heart_001

I might be strong, I might be weak
There might be a part of me that I won’t let you keep
Been on this road, and come this far
I don’t need a man to hold my hand
I just want one to hold my heart
(I just want one to hold my heart)

~ Hold My Heart by Lindsey Stirling feat. ZZ Ward

Hi everyone! So it seems 2017 has me jumping through hoops and running through mazes as I have had a lot happening already. RL just can’t let go, so I decided to follow a rabbit down a hole!

Well…I did not find exactly what I was expecting. Whoopsie! I seemed to have tumbled into something resembling Wonderland. Except someone forgot to mention that the Queen of Hearts is still on a rampage for Alice. No sooner had I stumbled out of one maze then I found myself locked up in one of the Queen’s unique stockades. Thankfully, I was able to clear up the confusion. Apparently, one of her Card Guards mistook me for Alice and took it upon himself to arrest me in hopes of pleasing Her Majesty. When the Queen came to see “Alice”, she was very UN-pleased to find it wasn’t Alice. She was gracious enough to release me from the red heart shaped contraption and gave me a change of clothes so i wouldn’t be mistaken for the other girl again.

Phew! That’s the last time I follow a rabbit… So, new things! ROMP is still running until the end of January and Dictatorshop currently has the Valentine Pillory on sale at the event. As you can see in my picture, it is heart shaped and perfect for V-Day fun times! This item is completely adult in animations with four menus to choose from. Male/fem, Fem/male, Fem/fem, and Male/male. Each menu has animations that have been adjusted to be more aligned and easier to use. As always, animations from Dictatorshop are smooth and the Pillory itself has an air of romantic fun. Get yours while it is at ROMP or gift it to a loved one. Only a week left to get it on sales price!

My second look in Wonderland is a combination of items from Mishmash Fusion. I’m wearing the Blackout Corset, Immortal Skirt, and Sugar High Boots in Black. The corset and skirt both come with a color HUD with a color tinter for endless possibilities as you color each piece. The skirt and corset come in sizes for Belleza Freya & Isis, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass and Physique, and TMP bodies. You have the ability to change the color of the entire skirt OR individually change each of the six pieces. The corset has a HUD with three color changeable parts. My kickass boots come in the same sizes as the corset and skirt but also includes a standard fitted option with an alpha for those without a mesh body.

That is all I have time for today as I am running very late! See you all next time! 🙂

Suck it, Cupid! You’re a Heartbreaker

February is here and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Many romantic and V-Day inspired events and hunts will be going on. But what about events for those who don’t like this day of love and mushiness? If you’re one of these people, have no fear, Xtreme Designs is putting on an anti-valentines event called Suck it, Cupid! On February 13, there will be a day-long hunt with contributions from several designers and a party that starts at 6pm slt. Two of the designers have given me a sneak peek at their gifts for the hunt so I’m sharing pictures with you all.

Mishmash Fusion will be offering up this adorable top and jean set for ladies that reminds me of Grease with the midrif showing. It’s fun and casual with one sleeve slipping off the shoulder and a knot tied on one side. Emblazoned with the text “Suck it, Cupid!” on the front, you’ll be feeling perfectly rebellious. Men also get a gift as pictured here with the matching text on the shirt. Whether you’re single, partnered, or anything else, these outfits are just too cute to pass up.

Also for the Suck it, Cupid! Hunt, =EC Designs= has created a sassy lip sofa that is simply fabulous. It has both female and male single poses as well as a couple pose. I can easily see this sofa in a single lady’s home for exchanging witty remarks with guests.

Lastly, though it is not a gift for this hunt, the knit pillow on the floor is something I got recently that has a few different gender neutral poses. It’s from Raven’s Rookery which has an assortment of useful home items. Place a couple of these pillows in the yard for watching stars, relaxing in a hidden corner of your home, or for meditation circles.

That’s all for now but I will be posting again for Fi’s Hunts with this month’s Add Some Red Hunt and other Valentine’s Day inspired goodies I discover. Happy February. 🙂 ❤

Down in the Underground: The Black or White Hunt

Hello my lovelies! I hope your new year is off to a good start. New Years always brings about the reminder that we can change and we have choices. Choices that have much power to influence our future. (I’ve been drawn to the Dark Side hehe) Fi’s latest hunt is the Black or White Hunt which offers two hunt paths to choose from. Black is difficult while white is easy. All shops have two gifts set out, one for each path, but they ARE NOT the same gift or recolored versions of the same thing. So what will it be? Black or White? You’re welcome to do both paths of course and why not? The gifts are amazing and I’m going to share a bit about what you can find. FYI hunt links and info below the pictures. 

At Mishmash Fusion, the black gift offers an outfit for women and men. They are so well done as always that I’m dragging my husband to get the men’s as soon as I can. The top for the women’s look is a jacket/top combo so there’s no worries about side boob if you’re wearing a mesh body like I am. Myst, your textures are amazing as always! 😀

My lovely little black dress is from Get Frocked’s black path. Fit was Purrfect and the look? Sexy. You could easily wear this for a date night or make it casual with some leggings.

The lovely Fiona of Fi’s Creations made a darling little dress. Layered sweetly with a cute bow on the waist, you will be doing twirls in this mini dress like I was! Pair it with the right heels to make this a great statement outfit.

My gray dress with the side slit actually came in two versions. The other dress that is included with this one is essentially the same but it is covered in the same pattern as the faux belt on this one. An included leaf necklace with a color change hud completes this look. It’s a touch provocative with just enough class to keep it balanced. I personally cannot wait to see what else Faerietale Designs has to offer in future hunts. (Please Faerie!!!!)

Euphoria Couture is the designer of the last outfit I’m sharing in this post. I was a little worried about the high waisted pants looking odd on me but damn, they make my legs look awesome! This is a great outfit for the working lady on the go. It’s classy and fashionable without feeling stiff. Bonus points for making the zebra print look amazing!

Lastly, the gazebo I’ve been taking all these photos in is the white hunt path gift from =EC Designs=. *waves to Cara and Jaxx* I love it you two! It’s a heavenly piece to sit and think or have a quiet cuddle with a loved one while watching the water. The arched columns are beautifully crafted to surround the pool and its benches. Go find it!!

Happy hunting everyone. And remember there’s two paths to try. Good luck! 🙂

Upon the Highest Bough

 

Upon the Highest Bough

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away, ooh

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star
Upon the highest bough

So many events! So little time.

I’ve recently stopped by a few places like Arcade and The Tannenbaum Holiday Market for winter and Christmas themed decor and other goodies

If you haven’t heard, Pixicat has a new Fifty Linden Friday sweater up for grabs. Winter cozy and a touch holiday themed, this sweater comes with a texture change Hud for a few color options. All standard mesh sizes are included with some of the most popular mesh body fitted versions as well. You’ll be looking fashionable at the Ugly Sweater parties with this cozy design.

Typically I steer clear of shoes that aren’t fitted for Slink or Maitreya feet, but these boots from The Sugar Garden were to die for. There’s plenty of color choices for both the base and laces but these do not come with a texture change Hud. I left The Tannenbaum Holiday Market with a pair in white and the mocha ones seen here. While you’re there, try some of the gachas for cute baubles to put on your Christmas tree or just as fun knick knacks.

Also check out Collabor88 for some fantastic winter decor and clothing. The woodstove and a lot of the associated decor are from {what next} which really suited my living room. Warm up your hands and set the kettle on the stove for hot cocoa. Don’t forget to hang your stockings for Santa to fill!

The Arcade also has fun winter and holiday items along with the Season of Giving gifts from participating merchants. Right now I’m wearing one of Spellbound’s gacha hairs that comes in two hat versions (Blizzard or Chilly), and varying hair colors. Both hairs will keep your head warm and looking cute with the attached hat.

Remember to stay warm this season!

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

-Blue Jeans Lana Del Rey

~~~~~~~~~~

One of my favorite shops is called Blueberry. A friend of mine introduced me to her clothing (thank you Sarah!) after I’d bought my Maitreya Lara body and I am HOOKED! She recently had a 50% sale on two of her newer items; leather pants and a cute dress. I had already purchased a pair of the leather pants in purple (because that’s my favorite color lol) but with a 50% sale…How can a girl resist? This time I got them in Midnight. Rene is a sexy cute set of leather pants that is super flattering for any shape. My butt has never looked better. Lol I love that Blueberry includes fitted versions for the major mesh body types like Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, and Slink. These pants also include a tucked in version (all sizes and fitted meshes as well) for wearing with boots. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a HUD to change the color of the metal buttons. All of this for a normal price of 199L per color. That’s 20 different sizes and a HUD. I’d say that is a steal. The top I’m wearing is the current group gift at Bluberry and also comes with all sizes and fitted meshes along with a HUD with several color options. Both the pants and top are so cute and well made, which is something that comes as no surprise. Every piece Blueberry does is made with love and care.

The jacket I’m wearing is from the Birdy Collective from Foxes. It is currently at Collabor88 but not for much longer. There are four plain colors and four jackets with a print on the back which are designed to go with a dress that is also available in several colors at Collabor88. Included are all standard sizes and fitted mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. An optional hood comes with the jacket in various sizes and fitted mesh. I love the fit of this jacket so much I probably won’t be taking it off any time soon. Get yours at Collabor88 while you can and the many other lovely goodies.
