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. ❤

So I’m Gonna Love You Now

Love Me Now_002

April is here and I am enjoying seeing flowers beginning to crop up from the ground. The showers will pour as they inevitably do, but with the rain comes new life and I’m finding I need that reminder as of late. A lot has been on my mind so I’ve been taking time to de-stress and just recharge. So I decided to take a little stroll and found a spot to relax, cuddle up with someone, and just pass the time.

This cozy spot I found is in a little gazebo made by =EC Designs=. It is for the Cart Sale at the Wash in birch and walnut for only 10L. Along with the gazebo, you get a bench, a little fountain pitcher, and a tree stump with cuddles. Not only is the set the perfect focal point for any garden, it has a multitude of single and couple animations in the bench, cuddle stump, AND the gazebo itself. Each set has a decorative tree stump and a pitcher fountain to complete the charm. 10L is a steal with all the animation options for singles and couples in each piece. Get yours in one or both wood options while you can!

My look today has a couple pieces from Luxe Box and Bishbox which are subscription boxes in secondlife. My lovely top is from Tee*fy (Lara and both Slink sizes) and my shoes are from Empire (Lara, both Slink, 3 Belleza, and TMP sizes), both in March’s Luxe Box. Both items fit well and have lovely texture options on their HUDs. On my ears you’ll find gorgeous earrings by Empyrean Forge. These come with a hud that lets you change the metal color. My hair is from Doe; I adore this hair because I love Doe’s gingers and her textures are so well done. Two sizes are included with one that is designed with larger breasts in mind. All color pack huds come in this set and you are able to change the hat color from a sizable array of options. Both earrings and hair are from March’s Bishbox. For info on how to join either subscription box, please check my favorites tab for the page on subscription box websites.

Finally, my smexy pants are Blueberry’s latest pants release. Gracie comes in a wide selection of denim and leather options for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, all three Belleza, and TMP mesh body sizes. The fatpack has exclusive metallic colors. What is really special about these pants is that you get the option of just the pant or a version with a cute boot attached with beautiful beadwork on the heel. Metals and beads can be changed via the included HUDs. As many of us know, Blueberry makes our butts look fabulous.

Love Me Now_004_002

I’ll be posting again soon with more finds from the Cart Sale. See you again soon! 🙂

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.

hold-my-heart_003

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! 🙂

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!
