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!

Sound of Madness: Anarchy for All

26385808101_daf2f43a4d_o

Hi all! Life has been pretty hectic and crazy all month since I started a new term at my university. I’m just finishing up week three and I’m still trying to get into the groove. We all have stressful things in our lives that make us just want to bury our heads under the blankets, but if we try to have a little fun amidst the chaos, it can boost our motivation and see us through our obstacles. Yes, I know it sounds cheesy and cliché. But it does help! This past Saturday, my friends at =EC Designs= and owners of the sim named Serenity City sponsored a race. Not just any race, an ANARCHY race. This means the only rule was to get the fastest time without missing any checkpoints. My Secondlife hubby was a dragster racer in SL years ago, so he was all for spending an evening on the track. I mostly hung out by the racer’s lounge to listen to the DJ, dance, and watch the time board as I cheered him on. Funny thing about this race that made it killer fun? Racers could use any vehicle. Car, motorcycle, plane, tricycle, lawn chair, you name it. Yes, I said lawn chair. My Secondlife hubby won a race in his Lawn Chair of Doom. Pictured here is both of us on his tricycle for one lap he did.  Lol I had a blast and am looking forward to other events Cara and Jaxx will be throwing at their city.

So what did I wear to this race? My black dress is a hunt gift from Marquesse. If you haven’t heard, there’s a hunt going on called the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt that started April 7th and runs until April 30th. This will be the last Fi’s Hunt until probably September because Fiona is moving in real life. So if you’re looking for a some new free goodies and like to hunt, get started asap! I’ll be sharing peeks at some of the gifts available from the hunt.

As I said, the black dress I’m wearing is from Marquesse as a hunt gift. It comes in five standard mesh sizes. The same goes for the white bolero that comes with the dress. While I had no issues with fitting the dress to my Maitreya Lara body, I was not able to make wear the bolero because it didn’t quite fit over my bust and dress. Even without the bolero, this dress is fun and cute for watching races from the sidelines. Grab it while you can!

For the second round of the race, I wore a dress and jacket combo my sister gifted me from R.icielli. On the HUD, there are several color options for not only the dress, but also different sections of the jacket. You can even hide the dress with a click of a button to wear just the jacket. Standard mesh sizes are included along with fitted meshes for the Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. I adore how this combo fits on my mesh body and really makes every curve look flawless. Needless to say, my hubby loved the outfit too.

With any outfit, the right shoes are essential. With both of my looks I wore Mishmash Fusion’s newest shoe release in black. New Orleans is a sassy strappy pair of heels with a bow tied on the back to keep them from looking too severe. These lovely gems are fitted for slink high feet and come on so many colors you will just want to get them all. Myst also released a similar pair with covered toes so be sure to check those out. Both sets of shoes are textures to perfection. If you’ve been looking for a cute pair of heels that can go with practically anything, these are for you. Believe me, I haven’t taken them off in over a week!

I’m hoping to post again soon with more Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt pictures, so keep an eye open for more and be sure to check out Serenity City!

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!

Born to Be Wild at the Cart Sale

With the onset of spring rolling around, there’s lots of bright and happy dresses being pulled out of the closets and great sales going on. One of my favorite sales events is The Cart Sale @The Wash which offers all items for 10 lindens with the option of one item being 50L. Right now Spring Freshness is the theme of this round’s Cart Sale and there certainly is a lot of spring fever going on. I, for one, loved exploring the grittier side of the theme, which led me to get back onto my bike for a little ride around a new roleplay sim called Dark Edinburgh. Continue reading

Addicted to Love: Add Some Red Hunt 3 Continued

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.
