Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair

Masion beach shot_004

Summer is nearing its end and I find myself feeling a bit bittersweet about it. I suppose there is a bit of sadness for another ending and I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to, but such is life. Of course I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures and fall is my favorite season with colorful leaves, pumpkins, black cats, and ghoulies peeking around corners.

In the early hours of the morning I will be leaving for my last summer adventure to Hawaii, a place I have never been to yet and have wanted to visit for years. Images of the sea and white beaches, abundant flora across an island, and a love of tradition come to mind when I think of this place. Not just volcanoes, grass skirts, and coconuts. I don’t really know what it will be like, but I am excited to go and enjoy a new atmosphere. While Hawaii is a part of the United States, its roots are much older and I am looking forward to learning about Polynesian culture.

Perhaps I am also a little sad because my great grandmother has been on hospice care for a few weeks and the recent visit I had with her may be my last. I have loved going to see her, but it is also difficult to watch her wither away. We talked about my upcoming trip, and she said it sounded like it would be nice and wishes she would’ve gone sometime but she had never been a big traveler. She tells me I need to bring a boyfriend back home with me. I chuckled and told her I would be trying to anyway. She gives me hope. Don’t I love her just for that?

So as I finish up packing and get my carry on ready, I am keeping my great grandmother in my heart, taking her with me to Hawaii to create new memories to share with my family and friends. I will be putting flowers in my hair and enjoying what adventure and love I can find.

Aloha! ❤

The Smell of Your Skin Lingers

My China Girl_002

Hey everyone! You have one day left to get to the Cart Sale so take advantage of the sale while you still can! Today I am bringing you a lot more peeks into what you will find at the Cart Sale.

As I was thinking about what I wanted to show you guys, I kind of just hung around my bedroom and lazed about in my new shorts and tank top. I’m still sort of decorating my house so I was wanting comfy casual attire. The shorts you see here are from !The Little Bat and come with a HUD with fun color selections. Sizes included are standard mesh sizing and fitted models for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. My tank top from Vicarious Youth fits only Maitreya. I’m a kitty girl so I had to have it.

My second look comes from Anachron. This cute dress is at the Cart Sale in a variety of colors, some that are perfect for Easter. It comes in standard mesh sizing and models for Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza bodies. Pair it with some cute sandals and a hat and you are set for Sunday brunch!

My third look is a lovely floral dress from Dark Water Designs. It only comes in standard mesh sizes but it still fit my Maitreya body well. If you aren’t a big fan of floral patterns, the dress also comes in a striped version. Either one is wonderful for new spring attire.

smell of you lingers_004smell of you lingers_006

My last look is from :{MV}: and I have been strutting my stuff in this dress all day! Sizes included are for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Venus, and Freya; and a standard fit option. There are seven gorgeous colors to choose from and really at this price, it’s a bargain to grab them all for 110L. Each is 10L with the black being the special 50L item. My friend and sl daughter loved the dress too and is the one posing with me. To pair with the detailing on the neckline, I applied some nail polish from La Boheme that was also at the Cart Sale. These nails have omega appliers and one for Maitreya.

The bed that I am sitting on in my picture is The Sophisticate Bed from Dictatorshop. It is not the newest item but I really loved the look of it and the bedsheets I found were so lovely. If you’re looking for a bed that with great animations for all around use, this is a wonderful option. Individuals have plenty of poses to pick from for both genders. There are cuddles for when you just want to relax with that special someone, and then as usual the wide selection of adult animations that Dictatorshop always has. For more options in bed covers, check out the other huds available in the shop; for the goth lovers there’s even Halloween themed bedsheets. Be sure to get the right Hud for the correct bed and have fun matching your house decor! 🙂

All the other decor in the pictures are from the Cart Sale. I love the watercolors and sketches from Dark Knight Designs. Something about them scattered about the room makes it feel extra artsy. The teapot with the fern fits in well with the bedsheets I chose too. The sturdy table is from Wood Works Furniture and is nice for filling in empty corners to hold up some of your knick knacks. I also liked the little pouffe seats from The Artist Shed for a little spot to sit and look out the window. Each pouffe has a different pose and texture inspired by spring weather. My final touches to my room was to hang a fishing pole from Dixie Dandelion with little frames on the wall and to texture the empty wall with an accent pattern from Timeless Textures. Each frame has a little cheerful saying and image to brighten your mood. On the wall, the knit texture I chose looks more glittery because of the scale. It’s a beautiful texture!

That’s all for this round of the Cart Sale. Grab the deals while you still can and check out my two previous posts to see what =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have for sale. I will be back soon when Fantasy Faire opens to share what Mishmash Fusion has in store for you. Take care!

She’s Real Fine… My 409

She's real fine_001

Hi again everyone! I hope your week is going well and that you’ve had time to check out the Cart Sale. If not, I will be sharing another awesome bargain you can find there. Please note, one item in this blog does have adult poses when in use.

Summer is coming up and I decided I wanted to try out some new bikinis so I am prepared for sunbathing. Of course, going for a drive with the top down is always nice too. A friend of mine let me use some his tools to make sure my car was running properly and I just had to check out the engine. Luckily for me, I had an engine crane ready because the engine needed some work. After taking a look under the hood, a few tweaks here and there, I’m ready for some racing!

She's real fine_002

Today I am wearing one of the bikinis from Mishmash Fusion that are at the Cart Sale. After one look I knew I had to have it because well, you can see how cute I look right? These swim suits hark back to the ’50s with their vintage pinup girl flare. Everything is covered up well so it’s perfect for a family day on the beach or going to the pool. The fit is nice and the bikinis are made for Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and five standard mesh sizes. Get them while they are only 10L each at the Wash Cart Sale along with the comfy cozy jammies up for grabs.

I also wanted to share a new release from Dictatorshop. Continue reading

Heart As Black As Night

29894400271_9ba6c6fceb_o

Hello pretties! I am back again with more from Mishmash Fusion and REIGN to brighten your day. 🙂 The other night I was a bit lost in thought and decided to take a walk on the dock near some friends’ house. A friend of mine wanted to tag along too so I made him stand in the rain with me. He didn’t seem to mind too much…

For the last warm evening walk, I decided to wear my new dress from Mishmash Fusion. Awaken is a smexy fun mini dress that comes in five standard mesh sizes XS-L, Ruth/fitted mesh, and fitted meshes for the Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and TMP mesh bodies. This sexy studded number comes in a buttload of color selections, 12 to be exact, so you’re sure to find the perfect shade to rock for a fun evening with friends or some eye candy.

I paired my look with a pair of heels that has become my new favorite from REIGN. The Villenti Heels are an exclusive item designed by Reign for September’s Luxe Box. Meaning, you can only get them if you had previously joined for September’s Luxe Box, or join the Luxe Box group for a different month and purchase the September Luxe Box at the Boutique. Info on Luxe Box at the link below. I ADOOOOORE REIGN shoes because the quality is really hard to surpass and I can pair these specific heels with a number of outfits, casual or dressy. I kept the heels set to black to match my dress but they come with a Hud with both REIGN  and Blueberry color options for the heel and metal options for the straps. So many choices you will never want to take these lovelies off. REIGN offers shoes in packs that come fitted for the main mesh bodies in SL, Maitreya Lara, Slink, Belleza, and TMP; so you always know you will have the right feet. While these shoes are an exclusive item, REIGN has many other gorgeous sets of shoes at her shop. Check it out ASAP!

October is almost here and I am sure I will have some spooky looks to share soon. So stay tuned and see you next! ❤

Sound of Madness: Anarchy for All

26385808101_daf2f43a4d_o

Hi all! Life has been pretty hectic and crazy all month since I started a new term at my university. I’m just finishing up week three and I’m still trying to get into the groove. We all have stressful things in our lives that make us just want to bury our heads under the blankets, but if we try to have a little fun amidst the chaos, it can boost our motivation and see us through our obstacles. Yes, I know it sounds cheesy and cliché. But it does help! This past Saturday, my friends at =EC Designs= and owners of the sim named Serenity City sponsored a race. Not just any race, an ANARCHY race. This means the only rule was to get the fastest time without missing any checkpoints. My Secondlife hubby was a dragster racer in SL years ago, so he was all for spending an evening on the track. I mostly hung out by the racer’s lounge to listen to the DJ, dance, and watch the time board as I cheered him on. Funny thing about this race that made it killer fun? Racers could use any vehicle. Car, motorcycle, plane, tricycle, lawn chair, you name it. Yes, I said lawn chair. My Secondlife hubby won a race in his Lawn Chair of Doom. Pictured here is both of us on his tricycle for one lap he did.  Lol I had a blast and am looking forward to other events Cara and Jaxx will be throwing at their city.

So what did I wear to this race? My black dress is a hunt gift from Marquesse. If you haven’t heard, there’s a hunt going on called the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt that started April 7th and runs until April 30th. This will be the last Fi’s Hunt until probably September because Fiona is moving in real life. So if you’re looking for a some new free goodies and like to hunt, get started asap! I’ll be sharing peeks at some of the gifts available from the hunt.

As I said, the black dress I’m wearing is from Marquesse as a hunt gift. It comes in five standard mesh sizes. The same goes for the white bolero that comes with the dress. While I had no issues with fitting the dress to my Maitreya Lara body, I was not able to make wear the bolero because it didn’t quite fit over my bust and dress. Even without the bolero, this dress is fun and cute for watching races from the sidelines. Grab it while you can!

For the second round of the race, I wore a dress and jacket combo my sister gifted me from R.icielli. On the HUD, there are several color options for not only the dress, but also different sections of the jacket. You can even hide the dress with a click of a button to wear just the jacket. Standard mesh sizes are included along with fitted meshes for the Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. I adore how this combo fits on my mesh body and really makes every curve look flawless. Needless to say, my hubby loved the outfit too.

With any outfit, the right shoes are essential. With both of my looks I wore Mishmash Fusion’s newest shoe release in black. New Orleans is a sassy strappy pair of heels with a bow tied on the back to keep them from looking too severe. These lovely gems are fitted for slink high feet and come on so many colors you will just want to get them all. Myst also released a similar pair with covered toes so be sure to check those out. Both sets of shoes are textures to perfection. If you’ve been looking for a cute pair of heels that can go with practically anything, these are for you. Believe me, I haven’t taken them off in over a week!

I’m hoping to post again soon with more Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt pictures, so keep an eye open for more and be sure to check out Serenity City!

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!
