It’s Never Quite As It Seems

superman_008

There is a strange magic in the air; I sensed it not long ago, shifting and turning about as it changes directions. Before the new moon, my energies were high, my hopes great. Like the sea, the tidal changes keep me off balance but one thing is for certain. I will never quit dreaming and feeling the magic with every change. Change, that thing we all detest because it brings the strange, the unknown, the chaos, and often the painful. Yet, with each change, no matter dark or light, there is beauty.

So as we embrace the coming of summer, shedding the dregs of a cold winter, remember to take with you winter’s bittersweetness. Without the dark, there is no light.  Take the darkness, mold it and shape it as you dream, using it to fuel your passions for the coming seasons and your dreams.


Less than a day left of the Cart Sale and I’m still finding gems to pick up. Today I am wearing some cute earrings from Poème that are mandalas and come in a range of colors to choose from. Pair them with your favorite bohemian look or some jeans and t-shirt for a little extra charm.

On my back you can see a new tattoo I found from InnerJoy Love Designs called Henna. It’s a beautifully done tattoo that comes with Omega appliers with the option of light or dark depending on how new you want it to look. Classic tattoo layers are also included. For 10L, this is a real steal. I also picked up more nail polish from De’Fient Unicorn. This set is for Maitreya Lara nails only and has a hud with fIve color options for both hands and feet.

For the guys, there’s some nice casual clothing to snatch up. My friend is wearing the shirt from the Faded Denim Weekend set by Dark Water Designs.This set comes with two versions of the shirt, with or without the undershirt, in TMP, 3 fitted mesh, and 3 standard mesh sizes. Shorts come in four mesh sizes. Overall fit was good and the set is set up for mixing and matching with other clothing.

Lastly I am sharing a newer release from Dictatorshop that is currently at ROMP. The Contempo bed is loaded with all of your favorite animations and matching leathers to go with the Contempo line. There are three different options for sale; PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. PG version has only the cuddles and snuggles, no adult animations. Adult Vanilla adds the fun animations but none of the bondage related ones. Adult Kink has everything; cuddles, massages, vanilla adult animations, MaleDom and FemDom animations, and the new threesome menu that was requested. While the beds are at ROMP, they are 20% off until they move into the mainstore after May 26th.

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!

sexy bat room_005

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.

sexy bat room_004

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!

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!

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! ❤

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. ❤

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! 🙂
