I Feel Your Whisper Across the Sea

Pergola Time_001

“Hey, wake up sleepyhead.” She nudges the snoring figure stretched out across a well padded lounge chair. A mumble from the dark haired man responds with a slight adjustment of his head resting on his arms as she continues to nudge his shoulders. Her hands begin softly rubbing over his shoulders, her quiet humming accompanied by distant bird calls.

After a few moments, his eyes flicker open as he stirs, waking up but pretending to slumber still as he listens to her hum a soft song. It was a rare treat to catch her humming, and he cherished every second. Suddenly, a finger jabbed into his back, making him jump up and grunt in surprise. “Ugggh… why you gotta wake me up like that, babe?” Shifting his body around, he sat up on the lounger, swiftly wrapped his arms around her and pulled her against his chest, making her squeal and laugh as he playfully jabbed her back with his finger.

“You were already awake! I could tell when you stopped snoring.” She grinned up at him. As his arms move to hold her close, she reaches up to pull his head down for a soft kiss. His arms tighten around her for a moment, a smile on his lips as she pulls away, hand still holding his head.

Tucking a loose strand of hair behind her ear, he chuckles, “Nothing gets past you, does it?”


The Cart Sale is still going strong, with less than a week left to grab the awesome deals with most items at 10L. I shared a few things in my previous post and I’m back to share a couple more things you can find there right now.

Battle fairy currently has a wonderful selection of summery dresses and sandal heels also set for sale at the Cart Sale. I’m wearing it on my Maitreya Lara mesh body with no clipping that I could see. For me it’s a perfect casual beachy look or a little dressed up for a date night. It comes in mesh models fitted for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, and Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. Grab all five dresses before it’s too late.

My nails were done by Nail It Good! with their “it’s May” polish. This polish set comes in six fun patterns on one Hud which includes appliers for Slink, Omega, Maitreya, and Belleza nails for both hands and feet. Add some sparkle to your look before heading out this summer with this set.

Pergola Time_005

The finishing touch for my beachy look today was a necklace made by Captivating! There are six cute beaded necklaces for sale that will have you dreaming of the tropics and getting sand in your toes. Any of these necklaces would look nice with a strapless dress or swimwear.

From =EC Designs=, I have a cute pergola setup that includes a lounger that is animated for singles and couples. Sit with your friend and hang out, or cuddle up with your partner to relax in the sun. There are even massages if you feel like pampering your partner a bit. The set is easy to just set out and poses are adjustable. Whether you are vacationing at your beach house or need a relaxing cuddle spot in your yard, this set is too cute to pass up.

That is all for now but I will have one more post up before the event ends. Don’t delay though, go get these amazing deals before the event is over!

I’d Howl at Your Beauty Like a Dog in Heat

tantra chair_002

Lately life has taken me on some twists and turns, some good and some quite painful. Opportunities presented themselves. I took the plunge. Did I land on my feet? Yes. And no.

I could spin a tale about finding love…then losing it. I could write about the heartache and sadness, the pain and emptiness. But you’ve felt it, feel it, know the taste of it in your mouth and the hollowness in your chest where a strange ache never truly dies.

Gradually the pain fades when you’re not paying attention; you hardly notice because you’re so busy trying to distract yourself from the pain. How long has it been since you could breathe freely? When did your smile stop feeling forced? Brief moments of reprieve are then cut short when you remember the pain; it all comes flooding back again. Did it hurt this bad the first time? Is it maybe a little less? How do you know when you’ve healed?

I’ve been reflecting on some of the people that have come into my life recently, how I’ve spent my time with them, my words, my actions and what they’ve said and done. Recent pain has forced me to take a step back to look at what paths lay before me. Should I take the path over here that most would object to? Or do I take the route more often traveled? Do I dare tread on the one my heart is drawn to? Mistakes and lessons lie behind me but I stand at a crossroads again, not ready to make a choice just yet. Not ready to take another step until my feet are planted more firmly on the ground.

tantra chair_008

For now I work on grounding myself again, building the foundation of my soul until it can withstand any storm. One day I will be myself again. In time I’ll forget the sting. Someday I’ll smile, blow a kiss, and be on my way, flowing like water onto the next path of my journey.


I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life tends to take hold just as I get my groove back. Today I am sharing a piece from February that Dictatorshop released that I was in love with from first glance. I honestly think every woman ought to have a tantra chair in her home. The curving slope is so sensual and elegant and to me it just seems perfect for lounging. Many of the single sits are perfect for staging a surprise for your significant other too. Plenty of cuddles are included for relaxing snuggles. With plenty of adult options, you’ll not be wanting for anything except to relax after a pleasant evening of funtimes.

Other things to note about the Tantra Chair are that you can change the textures via the Dictatorshop logo on the back. You are also able to control access to the menu via the logo as well. Go check out the demo at the inworld store and see why you need to add this piece to your collection. 🙂

The outfit I am wearing is from a gacha from Mishmash Fusion that was created for the Twisted Hunt event in March. I have not checked to see if it is still available to play in the shop but you may be able to find someone in the Twisted Hunt chat who might trade items with you.

Finally, I will be posting again soon, I promise. The Cart Sale begins tonight at midnight and runs through May 16th. Keep your eyes peeled for more coming soon!

Bulletproof, Nothing to Lose

Poppy_001

Pitter patter drip drap
Rainfall on the windowpane
Soft as a lover’s kiss

Rap rap tink tink
Like broken glass falling upon the ground
Gentle as an ocean wave

Splish sploosh splat
Puddles overflowing in streets
Peacefully chaoticly dancing

Nothing breaks its spirt
Everything gives it beauty
The water dancer never halts

Flowing, dancing, rolling and circling
Unpredictable
Dependable
Danger
Safety
Life


In my picture, I am wearing the Poppy Jacket and Poppy Leggings from Blueberry. Both come in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, and Belleza Venus, Isis, and Freya bodies. The leggings come with a hud that allows you to pick which type of booty you want because Blueberry created a new Blueberry booty but also included the standard booty option. You can also choose a yoga foot version or an under boot version in either booty type on the included HUD. An additional fun button is the wedgie animation because these leggings really hug every curve! The jackets include the option to have a double color effect on the cuffs and part of the front.

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! ❤

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

By the Beautiful Sea

by the Sea_001

Hello lovelies! It has been a beautiful week here for me. At last, the sun is shining and it appears that summer is here to stay so I am enjoying a bit of the outdoor scene before the weather changes its mind. With new adventures coming my way, I decided I needed a few new things to stay comfy while traipsing about the grid.

The Cart Sale started up again June 21 and will run through July 5. Every item is only 10 lindens. Yes, you read that right. Only 10 lindens! So what do the merchants have in store for us? Lots of new clothes (female, male, and kids), furniture, and decor for outdoors are for sale for the event.

One of my first summer adventures was sailing out on the sea. I secured a boat, got it out on some water, then readied myself for a bright day out along the coast. My outfit is from {Ezmerelda’s} and is an omega applier look. The hat matches and has a resizer script so you can be sure to get the purrfect fit. Both outfit and hat can be found with matching slink nails at the Cart Sale. Remember, omega appliers work with many mesh bodies!

by the Sea_002

After my seafaring adventure, I decided I needed some time in the backyard. I had purchased some pink wildflowers from Crys Secret Garden and wanted to get them planted as soon as possible. I also picked up a cute tent that is nice and shady for having cake and iced tea in the afternoon. Since I was just going to be at home, I decided to wear my new hot pants from Roped Passion and new top from The Little Bat. The hot pants comes in five standard mesh sizes and fitted mesh models for Belleza Venus and Isis, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. Different colors come with different words emblazoned on the booty. And well, purple has always been my color. The top comes with a HUD with twelve color options to match any outfit and includes five standard mesh sizes, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, and TMP sizes. I had no issues with fit with either piece on my Maitreya body but always try a demo!

One of my friends helped me plant the flowers and set up the tent, so naturally I had to get cake for us to reward ourselves for our hard day’s work. Each cake from Dark Knight Decor comes in a version to dispense a cake slice and decor only version. I pulled out my new Deck Set from =EC Designs= to relax under the tent and eat our cake. This set has a small table, chair, and lounger in teak wood that is nice and sturdy for any type of weather. Both the chair and lounger come scripted with single female and male animations that should suit anyone’s taste. We both relaxed with our cake for the afternoon and admired the wildflowers.

Oh and for the guys, if you were wondering about my buddy’s shorts, those are at the Cart Sale too. These shorts are from The Dark Fae and are designed for several of the popular male mesh bodies; sizes included fitted mesh models for Slink, Aesthetic, Adam, Signature, and Belleza’s Jake mesh bodies. Corvi has not only included sizing for all of these bodies, she’s made two versions, Loose and Tight, for each color so the fellas can find the perfect look and fit. Don’t miss out on these shorts while they are at bargain price!

That is all I have for you today but more is on the way! Enjoy some sun and new styles this weekend down at the Cart Sale and I will see you again 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.
