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.

Remember to Let Her Into Your Heart

Hey Jude_001

Spring has sprung, showing her face here and there at last. With more sun, blooms peeking out, and birds chirping in the early hours again, there is a renewed sense of hope for brighter days ahead of us. Part of the season change, for me, is refreshing my look, cleaning out the old tired clothes, and finding new pieces that call to me. If I can find them on sale, even better! Today I am sharing some of the cute things for sale at the Cart Sale at the Wash that has been dubbed Sunny Side Up.

The dress that I’m wearing is from one of my favorite shops, Mishmash Fusion, and is called Imagine. Each color or pattern option comes with 8 different mesh models which are fitted for Slinks Physique and Hourglass, Bellezas Freya, Isis, and Venus; Maitreya Lara, eBody, and classic avatar standard fit bodies. The fit on my Maitreya Lara body is nice and the dress is sweet and cute. If you don’t want to show as much skin, you could wear some leggings underneath. For 10L, this dress is a bargain! I’ve paired this dress with a pair of cute heels in violet from the Dark Fae which are also at the Cart Sale. The Delicate Rose heels are available in 9 colors and fitted for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya mesh high feet. While there is not a fatpack option, if you get every pair, that’s only 90L and a steal in my opinion. Wear these heels with a pair of jeans to be cute and casual or wear them with a dress like I did for a nice afternoon out.

Around me you will see various decor on the wall that is from Dark Knight Decor. These pieces are perfect for a kitchen, bathroom, office space, or workshop to add a touch of spring.  Little details on each piece add to their charm like the woodgrain on the plank or the shine on the seed jars.  Each of these pieces and more cute knick knacks and flower arrangements are up for grabs for 10L apiece at the Cart Sale.

Hey Jude_002

My last item for this post is the shark which is from =EC Designs= and is one of two on sale for a limited time. After the Cart Sale, both will be put in a gacha at the =EC Design= mainstore with a bunch of other cute sharks. Each shark has a ton of single sits for females and males. Whether you are a parent, kid, or just like sharks, you don’t want to miss out on these amazing items! Toss a few of these out in a casual sitting area for a bunch of friends and just chill out or throw some out for your kids to have pirate battles with.

The Cart Sale runs until May 16th, so you still have time to grab these goodies. I will be posting again soon to share more gems! Stay posted. 🙂

Another Winter Day Has Come and Gone Away

Sledding_005

Sanctuary. Peace. Tranquility. We all have different images that come to mind when we read or hear these words. For some they are tropical beaches with shady palm trees and clear blue water. Someone else might picture a vast forest of various species of trees, some changing with the colors of fall and birds quietly chirping overhead. Perhaps they are sitting indoors, blankets and a cat nestled around oneself, rain or snow falling outside the window.

I’ve found myself searching for peace and quiet lately. The desire for solitude ebbs and flows in me like the tide, changes like the seasons, and never really disappears. Clarity. When I hear this word I inevitably think of snowflakes and crystals. Wouldn’t a more accurate image be water or glass? Maybe. In any case, moments of solitude often bring a sense of clarity that is so rejuvenating and enlightening to me. When faced with a problem, only withdrawing from the world and into a book or taking pictures in Secondlife has ever given me true clarity and peace of mind.

Sledding_002

For this picture, I decided to play in the snow with some sleds made from Dictatorshop. The bench sled has a combination of both PG and Adult animations set up for all combinations of genders and dominance styles. While the bench sled has the option of cuddles and a nice blanket, the standing sled (also OMNI with all four gender and dominance styles) which is sold separately is more like Dictatorshop’s bondage crosses. Also included with the standing sled is a snowball giver for some added playful winter games. Both sleds have an excellent selection of animations under all of its menus. If you don’t mind a bit of cold weather, these sleds give a new definition to a winter wonderland.

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.

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.

sexy bat room_003

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!

Sparks Fly From Her Finger Tips

nevermore_001

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!
