Trade Them for a Package of Sunshine and Flowers

Bye bye birdy_001

Hey everyone! I am back again and sharing some finds from the Cart Sale. I know I’m a bit late but you MUST see some of the wonderful spring inspired releases available before it ends February 14th. Don’t waste any time and go check it out now!

Where do I begin? There’s so much goodness to find and all at a bargain price of 10L per item. I’ll start with what my friend is wearing. The sweet green dress from Mishmash Fusion comes in mesh sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, eBody bodies and standard fitmesh for classic avatars. At the Cart Sale, you can find this cute dress in six colors in the blossom print and two in a hearts prints all for 10L each. She paired her dress with these darling shoes and socks from The Dark Fae in the solid version. Each of the five packs of shoes with socks and the five sets of socks come with a HUD with several color or print options. Sizes come fitted for all Belleza, both Slink, Maitreya, and Tonic feet. These shoes and the sock versions are super adorable and honestly a steal considering each one has its own hud with color options.

Bye bye birdy_002

The second look is one I’m wearing in purple. I’m wearing a dress from K&A Design called Rhea and is available in three colors at the Cart Sale. This dress comes with all of the most popular mesh body sizes as well as standard mesh sizes and fitmesh sizes. I had no problems with fitting and the top part has just enough transparency for a little extra spice. My shoes are from Mishmash Fusion, made for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet and are available in three colors.

Bye bye birdy_003

My second look shows an outfit from battle fairy that is available in several colors. These sets can be mix and matched if you buy more than one color or mix them with other tops or bottoms to your liking. I love the texturing on the top and skirt; the back details of the top give this outfit a nice surprise as you turn. Sizes included for this dress fit all three Belleza, both Slink, and Maitreya bodies. My final look for this post is a combo of a top from Dark Water Designs and a skirt from CroM. Dark Water Designs has two color versions of this fringed top for sale and they come with five standard mesh sizes as well as fitted models for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink eBody, Tonic, TMP, and Ocacin. You could pair this with some bikini bottoms and a sarong or shorts and be beach ready! From CroM, the skirt is a vibrant blue mini skirt that comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP, eBody, and Tonic bodies.

I have a lot of the furniture pieces from =EC Designs= packed into this post and it’s really a steal if you grabbed everything. 60L for a full furniture set is a bargain. This retro inspired set works great for small spaces and offers a lot of animation options in the couch, chairs, cabinet, and bookcase for singles and couples. Just want the couch and chairs or just the chairs? Each item comes in its own pack so you can pick what you want. The drawers and cupboard doors all open on the cabinet and bookcase so you can display or “store” items as you desire. All of the table options come in a single pack as well. I’ve added a few of the items from Dark Knight Decor to add a soft spring touch to the room. The wall frame, chicken vases, and trio of frames are each on sale for 10L. You can also find more Valentine’s day appropriate decor and a set of rings for sale.

There’s only a couple days left of the Cart Sale, so stop by now before it’s too late! Links all below.

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!

Sparks Fly From Her Finger Tips

Hi there guys! I hope you are all well and enjoying the fall colors. I know I am. I am also enjoying the fantastic creations merchants are putting out for the season. Right now the Cart Sale is having a special event for their 10 year Anniversary sale. On top of their usual 10L sale there are also gachas! This event will be going on longer than normal to give everyone plenty of time to shop. I have some peeks at what you can find there.

nevermore_008

One of my favorite pieces this round is the gacha set from Mishmash Fusion. The Cobwebbed Dress has rich colors overlayed with spiderwebs that give it just a subtle spooky feel and the ruffle trim is nice and soft so you’ll still look cute. Each color comes in standard fitted and mesh sizes for for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus; and eBody bodies. There are no rares so be sure to play it a few times! Only 20L a pull! To match the dress, I’m wearing The Dark Fae’s Samba heels which come fitted for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet. The rare for this gacha is a fatpack will every color option.

nevermore_003

My wonderful friend Mits picked up another dress from Mishmash Fusion that is on sale, the Lillian Dress Day of the Dead in pink. This dress comes in the same sizes as the Cobwebbed Dress and is covered in sugar skulls on the skirt. You’ll find matching shoes shaped like coffins for standard, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

Both Mits and I are wearing nail polish from Koffin Nails that are on sale at the Cart Sale. They come in appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and omega. I’m wearing the special Pumpkin Spice Latte nail polish because I am a sucker for pumpkins and anything harvest-y. Check out our nails!

nevermore_009

The living room set is from =EC Designs= and is called the Hideaway Parlor Set, which is comprised of five pieces sold for 10L apiece. A chair, couch, coffee table, side table, and lamp for 50L is a fantastic bargain. The couches come in in a version with a blanket and leaf pattern on the storage baskets and a version without the blanket and a pumpkin on the basket. There are PG couples and single sits in the couch and single sits in the chairs so there are plenty of options for everyone in the family.

On the wall are pictures that come in a set inspired by Edgar Allen Poe created by *PAN*. Also included in the set is a shelf that is not shown and the Nevermore lettering on the table. The pumpkins are from a gacha by Sequel with just one rare that I found to be darling and perfect for adding a touch of Halloween without going scary. The candelabra in the corner has a menu that let’s you pick the metal texture, candle flame type, and light colors. Even when it’s not spooky season, these pieces are great for any home.

nevermore_010

Lastly I wanted to share the Crystal Skull that I have on the coffee table. Made by Dark Knight Decor, this fun rotating skull in a crystal will read your fortune when touched. Varying messages are pre-loaded into the notecard contents but it is fully customizeable so you can create your own fortunes! Or make some to scare your friends. Just remember what you put out comes back to you threefold!

That is all I have to share today but I will have more for you soon. Do not wait! Go find these goodies now!

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!

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!

Made My Skin a Little Bit Thicker

Boardwalk_011

A little bit of a rant or musing to start things off today followed by a special giveaway to celebrate reaching 50 blog posts! Read on to find out about the giveaway!

Lately I have been reminiscing on some of the events of the past year or so. Remembering the people that have moved in and out of my life and the lessons I have taken from them. It is incredible what an influence some people have had in such a short time while other lessons came from mistakes or taking a wrong turn. My morning has been a bit quieter than usual as I remember those lessons.

I know my last few posts have been a bit more upbeat and summery cheerful, so this post probably seems a bit less peppy. As a human, I can only be cheerful for so long before another obstacle gets thrown in my path that tries to knock me down. But you know what? I will keep fighting for the happiness I know I deserve. Maybe I need a day or two to get back into gear, but I will never stop swinging my bat at each ball that tries to strike me out. So my adventure for today took me to a baseball field in Chicago where I practiced focusing on hitting each ball out of the park and refocusing my mind on what is important. What is that you ask? Well… Me.

Boardwalk_012

Now that might sound selfish, but consider this. If you spread yourself too thin, trying to please everyone you come across, you can never be happy because you have no time for yourself and what makes you happy. This was something I’ve had to learn and really, I’m still working on it. My health and happiness are first and foremost before I can be expected to help others. I will always make time for those who are closest to me; yet I have reevaluated who those people are and adjusted my priorities accordingly to give myself the best chance of smiling every day. Life is too short. Spend it doing what you love and with the people you love.

Boardwalk_013

So, you’re probably wondering by now if i will just get to the clothes I’m wearing. Don’t fret! Today I am wearing a fun T-shirt dress from Dark Water Designs that is currently at the Cart Sale in three colors and a couple solid knit versions. Included are five standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza Isis & Venus, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. I really love how this dress fits and feels a bit sporty. The small clipping on the leg is really only visible because of the pose I used. Wear it to a game or at home while getting comfy on the couch. I paired it with some of my favorite sneakers from REIGN and was set for the day. Find this dress and more at the Cart Sale before it ends July 5th!

Boardwalk_015

Now on to the giveaway that I mentioned. My sponsors =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have kindly donated a couple gift cards to help me mark the occasion of reaching 50 blog posts. The prizes are a 500L Gift Card to =EC Designs= and a 400L Gift Card for Mishmash Fusion. If you browse my blog and Flickr, you’ll see some of the items of theirs I have blogged in the past. How to enter to win? Comment below with what you enjoy doing in the summer and your secondlife username. I will be using a random name picker to select a winner who will be announced in the comments, Facebook Page, Plurk, and Twitter. Deadline to enter will be Saturday July 8th at 5:00PM SLT.

Until next time! ~ Autumn

I Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

Boardwalk_010

Another gorgeous day here! I hope you all are enjoying the sun and staying cool. Today I want to share more great finds from the Cart Sale to use while you try to cool off in the heat wave that is upon us.

Boardwalk_006

Like I mentioned in my last blog post, I am excited for different summer adventures but this weekend got to be a little too hot! So I decided I needed to find a good way to cool off and well, the best way to do that is around water. One of the other items I found from =EC Designs= at the Cart Sale is this awesome raft. Built from sturdy lumber and decked out with comfy pillows and a blanket to lay on while you sunbathe, this raft is perfect for floating down the stream or hanging out on the lake. A raft can hold two singles, or a couple and has animations for singles for females and males as well as couple poses. Poses are adjustable so you can find just the right spot to cuddle your honey or get just the right amount of water on your toes.

Boardwalk_002

From Mishmash Fusion I am showing you a few different versions of the Xanadu Trikini. I invited a few friends over to chill with me and we turned it into a swimsuit party on a couple of my new rafts. First up, my lovely friend Cara is wearing the Blue Paisley version of the Trikini for Slink Physique. Miri is wearing a special hunt edition in red on the Maitreya Lara body. Find this lovely piece until the hunt ends this Friday (though Myst told me she may leave it out longer). I am wearing the Blue Transparent version on my Maitreya Lara body. Sizes included for all versions are Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, eBody, Standard Large, and Standard Small. General fit seems nice on the Slink Physique body but there is minor clipping on the tummy and hips of the Maitreya when moving. This is in part due to shape, different ao movements, and the way the original mesh creator built the mesh. Please try a demo to be sure of what you are going to see before purchasing. The transparent versions are very transparent and do show all bits so wear with caution! Or tempt that eye candy with it. 😉

That is all for now! I hope to have another post up soon with a few more things to share but don’t wait! Go check out the Cart Sale now while everything is at bargain prices.

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. ❤
