Some Kind of Madness is Swallowing Me Whole

Crazy_001

I apologize for my absence! A combination of real life and a bit of a down mood has kept me from posting this when I originally received the items that are featured today. Read on for what’s been floating through my mind.

We all know that there are many things that drive us crazy. Rude customers or co-workers at work. Too slow drivers or traffic on our daily commutes. Finding presents left by the dog or cat for the 100th time on the carpet. Even something simple as the sound some people make when eating can set a person’s teeth on edge. But there are very few things, in my opinion at least, that can drive us to true madness. One of those things… is love.

Crazy_005

For very few people, the search seems easy, almost like an arrow just pointing them in the right direction. But for most people, the search is rough, almost brutal at times. We look for signs to say, “Hey, turn here, open this door” or “Turn back now, wrong turn” to show us where we are supposed to be headed and with who. And if that wasn’t enough, our search can be for many different types of love. Even if we prefer to be alone, most of us seek companionship of some kind whether with family, friendship, a lover or a pet. The search for love, that special kind of love that comes from another person we want to spend the rest of our lives with…that love can bring us to a madness like no other.

I may be a bit of a hopeless romantic. I know it’s in everything I do, everything I say. As I’ve embarked on my quest for love, I’ve hit a few potholes, skinned my knees a few times, and leaped off a cliff without really being sure of what was at the bottom of the water. Love truly can be blind and that is usually what causes most of the hardship we end up experiencing when things go wrong. As Sigmund Freud said, “We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.” First love is always so innocent…nothing quite like it and the heartbreak we face when we realize the other person is not 100% perfect and not a good fit feels earth shattering for some.

Crazy_009

Well… Freud also said, “One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” Although we lament all the hardship our hearts endure, they are strong and able to go through a lot of rough handling. It sucks, but eventually you get better at finding the right turns and all that hard work is worth it; the pain of the past lingers but not so strongly that you’re unable to find happiness again…

My main point? It’s a lot of what I’ve been talking about already. Don’t give up. Keep trudging along the rough paths, scraping your knees, and taking a tumble or two; just remember to pick yourself up and continue to move forward. Find your love whether that is a person, a cat or dog, or a group of friends who have your back. Don’t let madness swallow you.

Today I am sharing the Chesterfield Sofa, Chair and Stool. Both were at the Home Show 2017 but due to my mood and RL I was late to blog them. They are now at the mainstore and on Marketplace along with matching Bondage Benches. Personally, I love this set even more than the Contempo set that I have blogged about earlier this year. I think this is probably due to the detailing of the back cushions. Nonetheless, this set brings you all of your favorite smooth poses in the adult versions of each piece or the PG versions you can purchase if you don’t want the racy aspects.

Crazy_012

Animations included in these pieces are as usual, superbly smooth and plentiful. Both leather and metals can be changed via the logo on the back of each piece and you can change the security of the menus as well. Poses are easy to adjust and swap for all your naughty needs. Dictatorshop has once again created sophisticated and elegant furniture that anyone would be happy to have in their home.

Until next time lovelies! 🙂

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.

I’m Hungry… I Hope You’ll Feed Me

Im Hungry_010 (7).png

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are finally seeing warmer temperatures and a bit of sun here and there (well at least some of us). With the warmer weather, moods are improving and getting a little more flirty. I know I am ready for some summer fun. But before that I decided I needed to update some of my furniture for when I have guests. Before reading further, please note, while there is no nudity, adult furniture is pictured below.

She’s Real Fine… My 409

She's real fine_001

Hi again everyone! I hope your week is going well and that you’ve had time to check out the Cart Sale. If not, I will be sharing another awesome bargain you can find there. Please note, one item in this blog does have adult poses when in use.

Summer is coming up and I decided I wanted to try out some new bikinis so I am prepared for sunbathing. Of course, going for a drive with the top down is always nice too. A friend of mine let me use some his tools to make sure my car was running properly and I just had to check out the engine. Luckily for me, I had an engine crane ready because the engine needed some work. After taking a look under the hood, a few tweaks here and there, I’m ready for some racing!

She's real fine_002

Today I am wearing one of the bikinis from Mishmash Fusion that are at the Cart Sale. After one look I knew I had to have it because well, you can see how cute I look right? These swim suits hark back to the ’50s with their vintage pinup girl flare. Everything is covered up well so it’s perfect for a family day on the beach or going to the pool. The fit is nice and the bikinis are made for Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and five standard mesh sizes. Get them while they are only 10L each at the Wash Cart Sale along with the comfy cozy jammies up for grabs.

I also wanted to share a new release from Dictatorshop. Continue reading

Hold My Heart

hold-my-heart_001

I might be strong, I might be weak
There might be a part of me that I won’t let you keep
Been on this road, and come this far
I don’t need a man to hold my hand
I just want one to hold my heart
(I just want one to hold my heart)

~ Hold My Heart by Lindsey Stirling feat. ZZ Ward

Hi everyone! So it seems 2017 has me jumping through hoops and running through mazes as I have had a lot happening already. RL just can’t let go, so I decided to follow a rabbit down a hole!

Well…I did not find exactly what I was expecting. Whoopsie! I seemed to have tumbled into something resembling Wonderland. Except someone forgot to mention that the Queen of Hearts is still on a rampage for Alice. No sooner had I stumbled out of one maze then I found myself locked up in one of the Queen’s unique stockades. Thankfully, I was able to clear up the confusion. Apparently, one of her Card Guards mistook me for Alice and took it upon himself to arrest me in hopes of pleasing Her Majesty. When the Queen came to see “Alice”, she was very UN-pleased to find it wasn’t Alice. She was gracious enough to release me from the red heart shaped contraption and gave me a change of clothes so i wouldn’t be mistaken for the other girl again.

hold-my-heart_003

Phew! That’s the last time I follow a rabbit… So, new things! ROMP is still running until the end of January and Dictatorshop currently has the Valentine Pillory on sale at the event. As you can see in my picture, it is heart shaped and perfect for V-Day fun times! This item is completely adult in animations with four menus to choose from. Male/fem, Fem/male, Fem/fem, and Male/male. Each menu has animations that have been adjusted to be more aligned and easier to use. As always, animations from Dictatorshop are smooth and the Pillory itself has an air of romantic fun. Get yours while it is at ROMP or gift it to a loved one. Only a week left to get it on sales price!

My second look in Wonderland is a combination of items from Mishmash Fusion. I’m wearing the Blackout Corset, Immortal Skirt, and Sugar High Boots in Black. The corset and skirt both come with a color HUD with a color tinter for endless possibilities as you color each piece. The skirt and corset come in sizes for Belleza Freya & Isis, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass and Physique, and TMP bodies. You have the ability to change the color of the entire skirt OR individually change each of the six pieces. The corset has a HUD with three color changeable parts. My kickass boots come in the same sizes as the corset and skirt but also includes a standard fitted option with an alpha for those without a mesh body.

That is all I have time for today as I am running very late! See you all next time! 🙂

With only a few days left in April, there’s still a surprising number of events that have not been open long and will be ending at the end of the month. A bit like stardom for some people I’d expect. Short lived fame, but fantastic nonetheless. Today I’m sharing a couple things you can find at ROMP and a hunt gift for the Fame & Fortune Hunt. Heads up, I’m featuring an item with adult poses along with singles and couples cuddles.

Sometimes with the right clothes, we can feel like one of the stars we so admire. For the Fame & Fortune Hunt, ~*Moolala*~ Continue reading

Take Me to Dictatorshop

25831200720_b554826fa9_o

Hello readers! I hope this post finds you in good spirits and sun-kissed. I’ve been working out in my garden a bit and setting out some new toys I’ve recently discovered. This is just a heads up that the featured item in this post does contain content suited for 18+ readers. Images are SFW, but content is not suited for people under 18. Read below for the full post.

Now, as I was saying. I was working out in the garden, setting up this new trellis from Dictatorshop when my hubby logs on and spies my short skirt. *facepalms* He promptly scooped me up like I was some prized booty..er treasure. Well.. One thing led to another and I was more than happy to oblige. Spring fever is running high and Dictatorshop’s new trellis just adds to the fun. So what can this fine piece of wood, I mean trellis, do?

As you can see, there’s some nice decorative roses and grass with cuddles and kisses. The pose my husband has me in the picture is in the lift menu named GotYou. The grass and roses are safe to leave out at all times, but if you’re feeling the heat picking up, click the small Dictatorshop logo on the bottom of one of the back posts. This accesses the naughty menus with Femdom and Maledom adult poses. Once a menu is chosen, a Trapmat rezzes in place of the cuddle grass. There are RLV capabilities in the trellis but the menus work great for people who don’t use RLV too. I can personally guarantee this because I do not use RLV at all. Once both partners sit and choose their appropriate role, the fun times begin with plenty of pose options. Dominants have control of the menu and can access the GiveProps button for any extra toys athat may be needed.

What makes this piece great is that it looks perfect in the yard and functions well for both PG and adult use. Security of the menu can be set to owner only, which keeps any random wanderers from messing with the trellis. While the grass and roses are safe to leave out, you can clear them to save on prims as well. You can also change the texture of the trellis with the included HUD to match your house or other garden décor.

If you go to the inworld location (adult sim), for a limited time save 40% on everything in the shop! There’s also two hunt gifts out for 1 linden that have a fun April flavor to them. Full details at the shop’s blog here. Have fun with a new trellis that is more than worth the linden. Enjoy your garden!
