Naked to Nothing More Than Who We Are

FG17_008

 

For today’s post, I decided to take on one of Strawberry Singh’s #SecondLifeChallenges.  I’ve been in a somewhat reflective mood since my grand grandmother passed away about a week ago and I thought this might be a good way to ponder life and get back into blogging more. If you’d like to participate too, here’s the link to Strawberry’s post with all of the details.

First a word about today’s picture. The image for this post is my Fallen Gods Inc. 2017 Gods and Goddesses Photo Contest entry, the skin being the participation prize from last’s years photo contest. My love for this look is only surpassed by my surprise and awe at the luck I had in getting this shot. Go check out all the other pretty pictures in the temple here!

Now on to the challenge… Seven facts about my SecondLife avatar or SecondLife that may not be obvious to any of you, my lovely readers.

  1. I really can not stand sl voice. Besides the fact that I despise my own voice, it seems that people who use mic tend to forget to keep people who type included in the conversation. That and the quality of mic sound in sl varies by person AND I am hearing impaired. So, I dislike sl voice immensely.
  2. I have had two sl partnerships in my four years and four months on sl. Both of which lasted over the average of four months for sl relationships. The longer of the two relationships lasted two years.
  3. I am seldom without my jerboa tail. The only time I take it off is for blog posts at times or for roleplay. For a short time I was never without wings but I always return to neko.
  4. I have only roleplayed in Game of Thrones sims. The few sims I have roleplayed on have been places my sl parents roleplayed at for Game of Thrones because I don’t like to roleplay in sims I don’t anyone and because I only wanted to roleplay Game of Thrones.
  5. My first and only mesh head is my current one, the LeLutka Bento Simone, courtesy of the fabulous Sophia Harlow.
  6. I really don’t like changing my shape and skin. It throws me off. I only do so for roleplay characters or artistic photos. I’ll change my hair frequently but not my skin or shape.
  7. I have absolutely no idea how to landscape or edit terrain in sl. Zero. I’ve never owned land where I could experiment with it.

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.

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!

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. ❤

Baby Just You Shut Your Mouth

Shh Just You Shut Your Mouth_001

Hey everyone! Fantasy Faire has been running for the past week or so and will be closing soon.  I have been stuck in university research land but I was able to get into Fantasy Faire to grab a few things.  The exciting news is that Mishmash Fusion is in Fantasy Faire for the first time and has so much to choose from! So, naturally, I had to share something. 🙂

One of my favorite new pieces from Mishmash Fusion is Chained Orient. This dress is perfect for roleplaying in an asian inspired sim…Well, certain parts of town. Ladies, even if you don’t roleplay, you will have your S.O. drooling as you strut around or bend down in this sexy number. I am wearing Tai in this picture and the blue stands out beautifully against the dark red, brown, and gold of the hall. Chained Orient comes in sizes fitted for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus; eBody, and a size for standard fitmesh. Six color options are available to pick from in exquisite reds, purples, blue, and neutrals. Be sure to check it out and all the other gorgeous new pieces Myst made for Fantasy Faire!

Shh Just You Shut Your Mouth_003

The fairelands will be closing soon for the year so don’t miss out! Until next time lovelies. ❤

I’ve Been An Awfully Good Girl…

been-an-awfully-good-girl_002_001

Hi everyone! I know things have been pretty quiet around here lately. I had a very bad cold for over a week then have been running around to doctor appointments and juggling multiple school projects. But I am back! And just in time for all the holiday buzz. This post is just the start of a few because I am happy to announce I will be blogging for the Cart Sale at the Wash again which runs from December 14th 2016 through January 4, 2017. So without further ado, let’s see what treats we have to play with until the Wash opens, shall we?

To start things off, I’d like to talk about this lovely throne I’m sitting on with my handsome friend. Dictatorshop created this beautifully detailed Dragon Throne with the same animations as the popular Oak Leaf Throne. If you look closely, you can see the delicate Celtic knotwork carved into the wood along with the dragon heads and clawed feet of the throne’s front legs. While this may not exactly suit the typical household décor theme, it would be excellent for roleplay sims or an older styled home. I personally love Celtic designs and dragons and have an eclectic style in my home. Included animations are Solosits, Cuddles, Kisses, Dances, and adult animations under the MaleDom and FemDom menus. Smooth and easy to adjust via the Adjust button in the menu, these animations will delight anyone who wants to feel royal.

Feel like dressing up and looking festive? Mishmash Fusion has just what the ladies need with one of their newest releases, Feeling Elvish. Shiny and soft like satin, this dress will have you dancing and singing Christmas carols in no time with all the options. It comes with five standard sizes and fitted mesh models for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. The included Hud allows you to pick between 8 color options for the top, top frill, bottom, bottom extra frill, belt, and 4 metal options for the belt buckle. Not quite happy with these choices? Use the color picker on the Hud to tint it to your heart’s content!

My shoes are also from Mishmash Fusion and are customizable just like the dress. Rockin Around Socks and Heels have several options on the Hud; 8 holiday print options for the sock, 4 color options for the sock bow, shoe, and shoe leather. These lovely kicks are available in Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Venus, Isis, & Freya, and Tonic Fine & Curvy mesh sizes. Both these shoes and the Feeling Elvish dress are in the Mishmash Fusion mainstore now, so go swipe them and be the smexiest elf at all your holiday parties.

There’s so many events going on right now, I don’t have room to gush over everything but I have linked items that are at shopping events going on right now. Will bring me fabulous finds soon!

Flesh to Blood to Bone to Love… Twisted…

29895214106_0a6536c957_o

Hello my lovelies! It seems my witchy side is persisting as we get closer to Samhain and the Day of the Dead. I seem to have acquired the gift of divination for a time. Or maybe it has something more to do with this Twisted Hunt that’s been going on all September. Haven’t heard of it? Well let me tell you a little story…

Twisted Hunt is well known as the hardest hunt in SL. Its Organizers are evil and the merchants are ebil. And no that was NOT a typo. Ebilness is reserved for the truly twisted of twisted people and fair warning, you’ll lose your mind and hair on this hunt. Merchants are allowed to use only a certain number of visible decoys but who’s to say they won’t bury a million cubes in the walls and rename their building parts? In an effort to ward of would-be cheaters, merchants are very crafty and downright wicked at times in hiding their prize cubes. So why go through all the trouble for a little cube? Because Twisted Hunt has arguably some of the best creators on the grid offering FREE prize hunt cubes. Merchants like Mishmash Fusion..

The gown and blindfold I am wearing come as a set of standard mesh sizes as the main hunt prize for this hunt at Mishmash Fusion. Spirits sending you visions of the Apocalypse? Randomly spouting prophecies worthy of the Ancient Greek oracles? You’re going to need this gown! The beautiful rich fabric will keep you warm as you scry in crystal balls by moonlight and read fortunes in animal guts. The blindfold comes in two versions, one of which is unrigged. I’m wearing the LQ version. I did have to squish my boobs into my dress but that was because I wanted to fit in a size M. Other than that, no shape modifications. Find this lovely gown before the event ends! My necklace and earrings are from Sn@tch and come with easy to use resize scripts. This hunt prize is simply lovely and is a great addition to a witch or seer’s wardrobe.

I also wanted to share the cool crystals and big stone looking thing behind me. The crystal clusters are the Twisted Hunt gift from Attitude is An Artform. These beauties are very low prim and can be linked together without making the prim count multiply like rabbits. The stone piece is carved with old Celtic symbols for the five elements; earth, fire, water, air, and spirit. When clicked, a smokey mist is emitted from the circle as spirits are called forth. Find this hunt gift at Lilith’s Den while you can. More info on the Twisted Hunt and the Merchant List with direct store teleports can be found here and below with all other links.

Also small note, I’ll be creating a page with the mesh body parts I always wear and will link it at a later date for future referencing. Have fun hunting and see you all again soon! 🙂

And Now You’re Mine


Occasionally, we all encounter people who annoy us, give us the creeps, or do something that results in causing us pain. For the past few months I’ve been healing and rediscovering myself. Part of this process has led me to meet some interesting characters and some of them, are not so great. I’ll admit, my witchy side started to take over. So, as any good girl (or is that bad?) would do, I went into my attic and wove some spells to summon a demon for a little vengeance. Hint: Check the window. Who said we can’t help Karma along?


To cast my spell, I decided to wear something to give me a bit of extra confidence. My dress is from Mishmash Fusion and comes in a great selection of colors. Diversions is mesh body friendly for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass and comes in five standard mesh sizes. Ladies, this dress is perfect for going out on the town for the night to lure unsuspecting men for some fun or for staying in and weaving witchy spells. 🙂 You won’t be disappointed! I know I couldn’t stop admiring myself and how awesome my bewbs look in the dress. Every curve is flawless. Grab a demo and check this gem out!

If you’re curious about my wings, I found them at a gacha resale on the Serenity City sim. Lots of gacha goodies can be found and empty space is swiftly replaced by new ones. Other items seen in the picture are from an old Twisted Hunt and sadly not available. I’ve marked in the credits which are from the hunt. If you’ve never done the Twisted Hunt, check the link here for info and join in on the fun as it is Twisted Season!

I hope I am able to post again soon, but with school coming up, I am not sure when I will have time. Send me good vibes and I will do my best!
