Oh, You Will See Me Thrive

Rise_002

You left scars on my skin as quickly as the spark once ignited. They linger… a constant reminder of what could have been but never will be. Once I craved your words, your touch, your kiss. Now shelter is in my own company, knitting pieces of myself back together, watching the scars heal, fade, yet remain.

On the floor you left me to break, never once looking back. Did I fall? Yes. Did I stumble? Yes. But I crawled my way back to safety, pushing my way through the heartache to smile. What we had was not love though I chose love time and again. I still choose love. No longer with you. I choose myself.

Each break and repair is filled with gold, stronger than before. I choose acceptance and self-love. I choose to wear my scars with all the beauty that they bring to my soul. I choose to rise.


Hello lovelies! If you are wondering about the furniture featured in this post, all are from Dictatorshop and are a part of  the Verve collection. The sofa and chair both come in three options: PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kinky. The matching coffee table comes in just PG or Adult Vanilla versions. Each item is sold separately but make great additions to any living room or lounge. If you want a bit of naughty fun but don’t want it to be obvious to your house guests, Dictatorshop delivers elegant furniture with beautiful texture options to match your current decor while also giving you all the fun animations you’d expect in the bedroom. Dictatorshop recently began including threesome menus in their adult kinky versions of furniture as requested by VIPS. As always there are the singles, couples cuddles/kisses, and adult animations and the MaleDom and FemDom menus with animations to fill every needs. Kink or adult animations not up your alley?

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’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.

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!
