The Smell of Your Skin Lingers

My China Girl_002

Hey everyone! You have one day left to get to the Cart Sale so take advantage of the sale while you still can! Today I am bringing you a lot more peeks into what you will find at the Cart Sale.

As I was thinking about what I wanted to show you guys, I kind of just hung around my bedroom and lazed about in my new shorts and tank top. I’m still sort of decorating my house so I was wanting comfy casual attire. The shorts you see here are from !The Little Bat and come with a HUD with fun color selections. Sizes included are standard mesh sizing and fitted models for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. My tank top from Vicarious Youth fits only Maitreya. I’m a kitty girl so I had to have it.

My second look comes from Anachron. This cute dress is at the Cart Sale in a variety of colors, some that are perfect for Easter. It comes in standard mesh sizing and models for Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza bodies. Pair it with some cute sandals and a hat and you are set for Sunday brunch!

My third look is a lovely floral dress from Dark Water Designs. It only comes in standard mesh sizes but it still fit my Maitreya body well. If you aren’t a big fan of floral patterns, the dress also comes in a striped version. Either one is wonderful for new spring attire.

My last look is from :{MV}: and I have been strutting my stuff in this dress all day! Sizes included are for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Venus, and Freya; and a standard fit option. There are seven gorgeous colors to choose from and really at this price, it’s a bargain to grab them all for 110L. Each is 10L with the black being the special 50L item. My friend and sl daughter loved the dress too and is the one posing with me. To pair with the detailing on the neckline, I applied some nail polish from La Boheme that was also at the Cart Sale. These nails have omega appliers and one for Maitreya.

The bed that I am sitting on in my picture is The Sophisticate Bed from Dictatorshop. It is not the newest item but I really loved the look of it and the bedsheets I found were so lovely. If you’re looking for a bed that with great animations for all around use, this is a wonderful option. Individuals have plenty of poses to pick from for both genders. There are cuddles for when you just want to relax with that special someone, and then as usual the wide selection of adult animations that Dictatorshop always has. For more options in bed covers, check out the other huds available in the shop; for the goth lovers there’s even Halloween themed bedsheets. Be sure to get the right Hud for the correct bed and have fun matching your house decor! 🙂

All the other decor in the pictures are from the Cart Sale. I love the watercolors and sketches from Dark Knight Designs. Something about them scattered about the room makes it feel extra artsy. The teapot with the fern fits in well with the bedsheets I chose too. The sturdy table is from Wood Works Furniture and is nice for filling in empty corners to hold up some of your knick knacks. I also liked the little pouffe seats from The Artist Shed for a little spot to sit and look out the window. Each pouffe has a different pose and texture inspired by spring weather. My final touches to my room was to hang a fishing pole from Dixie Dandelion with little frames on the wall and to texture the empty wall with an accent pattern from Timeless Textures. Each frame has a little cheerful saying and image to brighten your mood. On the wall, the knit texture I chose looks more glittery because of the scale. It’s a beautiful texture!

That’s all for this round of the Cart Sale. Grab the deals while you still can and check out my two previous posts to see what =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have for sale. I will be back soon when Fantasy Faire opens to share what Mishmash Fusion has in store for you. Take care!

From the House that Built Me: More from the Cart Sale


Easter has recently passed and I can’t help thinking about all the ways we are shaped by the cultures we are raised in. Different parts of the world celebrate the same holiday in different ways and this changes how we express ourselves in what we wear, how we act, and more. In this post, I’m sharing different looks that appeal to varying tastes because they draw influences from different walks of life.

For my first look, my dress from Dark Water Designs is inspired by floras found in the eastern hemisphere. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a HUD with four Asian floral designs. If you wear a mesh body and are a tad bustier, expect to wear the larger size. My wedges are also from Dark Water Designs and while the floral patterns on the HUD don’t quite match the dress pattern I’m wearing, they still look fun and cute together. Not a fan of floral? There’s a pair of Vintage Grunge Wedges set for sale at the Cart Sale too. Find these lovely pieces and more for 10L while you can.

In my second look, I’m wearing one of Anachron’s pieces from the Cart Sale. This beautiful chiton comes in a multitude of colors in standard mesh sizes. I did mod my shape to have smaller breasts to fit size M but the large would have worked as well. I really love how nicely this piece drapes over the body and the textures are beautiful. You’ll feel like a Greek princess or goddess in it.

For teatime with the girls, I went with a little dress from Lilbit Sass and a hat from NSP. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, busty sizes, fitted mesh sizes, and fitted mesh sizes for the Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. Not seen is the gorgeous strap design on the back. I had no issues with fit at all. The hat has an easy to use resize script which allows you to fit this lovely hat to any head and accommodate hair as well. Together these pieces give me an Audrey Hepburn vibe or some other high- fashion lady without feeling over-glamorous.

My last look is mostly just for fun. Rowena’s Designs has a cute dress and matching heels out for sale. The included HUD has a nice basic color selection to suit any girl’s mood. This dress has standard sizes, fitted sizes, and meshes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies too. If you’re headed to the club, you might find some fun tip jars like this Peeps Tipjar from Xtreme Designs. They have quite a few Easter or spring themed tip jars for sale at the Cart Sale. These peeps look so yummy I had a hard time not taking a bite of them! 😀 The background and floor textures in this photo are from Timeless Textures which has a nice selection of full perm textures up for grabs. I’m not normally someone who likes pink but the plaid was so cute I couldn’t resist.

Head to the Cart Sale at the Wash while you still can. More peeks at what’s at the Cart Sale can be seen here.  All items are only 10L, although merchants are allowed one 50L item. Take advantage of these deals while they last!

Addicted to Love: Add Some Red Hunt 3 Continued

2016 - 02 - Add Some Red Hunt 3

Hello everyone! I’m bringing you more peeks into the hunt gifts from the Add Some Red Hunt 3 that you can find across the grid for free for February. Details for the hunt, Start Point, and links to the website and hints will be above the pictures.

Although somewhat inspired by Valentine’s Day, so many of the gifts are suited for many occasions or day-to-day wear. There’s less than a week left to grab these goodies so don’t delay! Continue reading

Made to Love: FLF, Add Some Red Hunt, and Valentine Treats

2016 - 02 - Add Some Red Hunt 3

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away and I’ve been drowning in goodies so sweet you could eat them. Today I’m sharing clothing from Mishmash Fusion, =EC Designs=’s Kiss My Store hunt item, gifties from the third Add Some Red Hunt, and a couple Fifty Linden Friday deals. Details for the Add Some Red Hunt 3 are below.

Mishmash Fusion has released for February a selection of outfits inspired by the sweetheart candies popularized by Valentine’s Day. I’m currently wearing the Romantic versions of the knotted t-shirt and jean combo but there’s also Dirty and Anti-Valentine’s flavored ones as well. Guys are in luck because Mystical made Mens’ Romantic and Anti-Valentine’s t-shirt sets too! Buy each color version you like or the fatpacks. I simply adore how these tops look especially when paired with Mishmash Fusion’s Love in Itself Heels for Slink High Feet. The heels have hearts on the back and front, lending a touch of playfulness to any outfit. My nails are painted in one of American Hunni’s omega nail appliers for the Add Some Red Hunt 3. The hud has a lot of pretty polishs to make your nails sparkle. If you are unfamiliar with omega appliers, check out this website for more details.

My house is decorated with lots of goodies from several events going on this month. =EC Designs= is part of the Kiss My Store hunt and are offering up the lovely sofa I’m sitting on with my sister. It has single poses and several couple poses that would be cute for cuddles and pictures. So go find those lips to find the prize!

For the third Add Some Red Hunt, {Sickly SWEET} created a cute privacy screen with knick knacks and a lamp to put in an empty corner or to divide a room. Chiana Oh made this adorable ladybug pouffe seat that is perfect for a kids playroom or just a fun conversation piece in your home. I also discovered this cute bunny tip jar from Tipsters that I shrunk down to fit on my side table. Decor or tip jar, up to you.

For Fifty Linden Friday, I could not pass up on the Spilled Candy Hearts or the Lighted Pathway from +Half-Deer+. Piles of the sweetheart candies make for perfect kitchen decor and the lighted pathway works for a path or wall decor. {what next} released an adorable low prim bookcase and set of tables. I have been looking for a bookcase like this for awhile so this was a steal.

I will be posting again with more goodies to find in the Add Some Red Hunt 3 later. Don’t forget the Suck it, Cupid! Hunt event is February 13 and I blogged two hunt gift previews here. Happy Tuesday and happy hunting!

Suck it, Cupid! You’re a Heartbreaker

February is here and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Many romantic and V-Day inspired events and hunts will be going on. But what about events for those who don’t like this day of love and mushiness? If you’re one of these people, have no fear, Xtreme Designs is putting on an anti-valentines event called Suck it, Cupid! On February 13, there will be a day-long hunt with contributions from several designers and a party that starts at 6pm slt. Two of the designers have given me a sneak peek at their gifts for the hunt so I’m sharing pictures with you all.

Mishmash Fusion will be offering up this adorable top and jean set for ladies that reminds me of Grease with the midrif showing. It’s fun and casual with one sleeve slipping off the shoulder and a knot tied on one side. Emblazoned with the text “Suck it, Cupid!” on the front, you’ll be feeling perfectly rebellious. Men also get a gift as pictured here with the matching text on the shirt. Whether you’re single, partnered, or anything else, these outfits are just too cute to pass up.

Also for the Suck it, Cupid! Hunt, =EC Designs= has created a sassy lip sofa that is simply fabulous. It has both female and male single poses as well as a couple pose. I can easily see this sofa in a single lady’s home for exchanging witty remarks with guests.

Lastly, though it is not a gift for this hunt, the knit pillow on the floor is something I got recently that has a few different gender neutral poses. It’s from Raven’s Rookery which has an assortment of useful home items. Place a couple of these pillows in the yard for watching stars, relaxing in a hidden corner of your home, or for meditation circles.

That’s all for now but I will be posting again for Fi’s Hunts with this month’s Add Some Red Hunt and other Valentine’s Day inspired goodies I discover. Happy February. 🙂 ❤

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

-Blue Jeans Lana Del Rey

~~~~~~~~~~

One of my favorite shops is called Blueberry. A friend of mine introduced me to her clothing (thank you Sarah!) after I’d bought my Maitreya Lara body and I am HOOKED! She recently had a 50% sale on two of her newer items; leather pants and a cute dress. I had already purchased a pair of the leather pants in purple (because that’s my favorite color lol) but with a 50% sale…How can a girl resist? This time I got them in Midnight. Rene is a sexy cute set of leather pants that is super flattering for any shape. My butt has never looked better. Lol I love that Blueberry includes fitted versions for the major mesh body types like Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, and Slink. These pants also include a tucked in version (all sizes and fitted meshes as well) for wearing with boots. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a HUD to change the color of the metal buttons. All of this for a normal price of 199L per color. That’s 20 different sizes and a HUD. I’d say that is a steal. The top I’m wearing is the current group gift at Bluberry and also comes with all sizes and fitted meshes along with a HUD with several color options. Both the pants and top are so cute and well made, which is something that comes as no surprise. Every piece Blueberry does is made with love and care.

The jacket I’m wearing is from the Birdy Collective from Foxes. It is currently at Collabor88 but not for much longer. There are four plain colors and four jackets with a print on the back which are designed to go with a dress that is also available in several colors at Collabor88. Included are all standard sizes and fitted mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. An optional hood comes with the jacket in various sizes and fitted mesh. I love the fit of this jacket so much I probably won’t be taking it off any time soon. Get yours at Collabor88 while you can and the many other lovely goodies.
