Gonna Love Myself, No, I Don’t Need Anybody Else

Gonna Love Myself, No, I Don’t Need Anybody Else

It’s the weekend and that means it’s time to play. Where am I headed tonight? My bedroom! I’ve got my tv, dogs, ice cream, and jammies. What more does a girl need? It’s the last day of Second Life Syndicate’s Trick or Treat event. My previous three posts show a peek at some of the prizes you can win. Click here for all the details on how it works. I am sharing just one more peek at what you can find at one of the shops in the event.

If you have the VIP HUD and like Batman, this prize is perfect for you. The pajamas I’m wearing are the grand prize that you can get after collecting all other prizes. Regular prizes include Halloween themed hoodies and other tops. Remember, this event has no duplicate prizes so there’s no endless spending for the last one. These jammies are made for the Maitreya, 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, and TMP mesh bodies and 5 classic or standard mesh sizes. Pick up a set for yourself before they’re gone!

Be sure to check out Second Life Syndicate’s other events and see you again soon!

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Although Halloween is over, I’m still feeling a little witchy. I decided to play with a bit of magic and organize some of my potion jars in the attic. I was aiming for something dark but…I think I used a little too many flower petals so if you see some luminescent butterflies, don’t be alarmed. You may start dancing and singing random songs, but there should be no lasting effects. Curious about the items in my hideaway? Only one more day of Secondlife Syndicate’s Trick or Treat event. More info on the event here. Let’s dive in!

If you are looking for a nice storage option, [noctis] has a beautiful shelf that has room for all the potion jars you collect. This shelf is the grand prize if you get the VIP Hud and collect all the pieces from [noctis].  Only like the jars? They make cute year round accent pieces for any corner of the house.

Nearby, you will find I have my grimoire set out. The Half Moon Market has created pieces that every witch needs, the grimoire being the most important in my opinion. It’s small yet detailed in its design. Other items include pumpkins, an athame, and potion bottles.

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart The last items from Trick or Treat I am sharing in this post are things I’m wearing. On my face are little tear drop tattoos. Unicult has several tattoos that come in Catwa and Omega appliers with multiple color options per tattoo. Collect them all and you’ll have something that goes with any outfit. Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Lastly, Dark Passions has created super fun Halloween themed nail appliers for this event. These nails come in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega appliers. There are nine different sets to collect, and the grand prize if you have the VIP Hud. I personally would wear these year round and they make a great addition to any goth or edgy look.

I have one more post coming, but don’t wait any longer. Go knock on some doors before the event ends this weekend!

Who Am I to Disagree?

Who Am I to Disagree?

As we near All Hallow’s Eve, the spook and eerie atmosphere around us seems to slowly grow darker and more sinister. Neighbors put out decorations that seem to watch us in the night when we return home in the dark, superstitions may seem to hold more truth than we would normally give credit, and some people don an alter ego they’ve been planning on all year.

Who Am I to Disagree?

Unlike real life, SecondLife allows us the opportunity to be who we want any time of the year, moment to moment, avatar to avatar. We create the environment we want to live in as well. A popular roleplay in SecondLife involves vampires. In fact, there are many roleplay systems devoted to vampires and werewolves in SL. Many sims are home to clans that live in giant castles and house coffins to slumber in during the day, except in sl it can be night all the time. Dictatorshop has recently been releasing pieces that make up a set perfect for any gothic enthusiast who may have an interest in vampire animations as well. Read on for more on each piece featured in this post!

The Vespera collection encompasses a range of pieces that are perfect for the bedroom or other rooms within a castle or structure of your choice. My favorite piece has to be the Vespera Bondage Bed. The texturing of the bed, ironwork, and wood is beautiful and looks fantastic in both low and high graphic settings. For those who know what to look for, they will also find a lifestyle related symbol subtly worked into the iron on the canopy of the bed. Animation menus are loaded with great poses for you and a loved one or just a friend to snuggle. There are three versions of the bed which will determine the animations you’ll be getting; PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. One part of the bed that took me a bit to figure out was how to access the bondage menus on the Adult Kink version. If you are looking for the very adult animations on this version that are in addition to vanilla, lesbian, and threesome menus, click the footboard of the bed and choose either MaleDom or FemDom to suit your needs. A two step stool rezzes on the side of the bed that you can sit on, or use the metal rings on the bedposts, then play to your heart’s content! Today is the last day to grab it while it is at the Black Fair before it goes full price in the mainstore and marketplace.

Who Am I to Disagree?

At Ultra until November 10th, you can find the Vespera Coffin Chair, which matches the Vespera Coffin Sofa that is also pictured here. Like the bed, both the chair and sofa come in three rating levels, PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. Only the Coffin Chair Adult Kink version has animations specifically for those who want vampire poses for “feeding” or biting in a tasteful manner. Many of the animations match what you will find in  the bed an other Dictatorshop pieces. To change the texture on the chair and sofa, click the logo in the back to change leather colors and metals. Whether you are wanting dark or bright and fun, there is something to fit in any color scheme.

Who Am I to Disagree?

Some men and women feel they are royalty and deserve a throne to fit their status. If you run a clan, the Vespera Throne is perfect for you. Not only does this throne fit in with the rest of the Vespera line, but it also has additional vampire themed animations in the Adult Kink version. Like the other pieces, get this gem in three different version depending on your animation needs. If you look closely, like the bed, the throne features lifestyle related symbols embedded into the metal of the headboard. Find it at Cosmopolitan until the event ends and it moves to the mainstore!

Who Am I to Disagree?

The last piece I have pictured is the Vespera Dragon Armoire, currently being sold at the Red Light District. Unlike the other Vespera pieces, the Armoire is RLV cage that someone can sit in and be controlled by others who click to access the menu. Menus to change textures and security access are inside the Armoire. You can change the wood texture and make the doors transparent or solid. If you’re not interested in the animations, this piece still makes a lovely decorative piece to any boudoir.

Beginning October 21st, a new event called Trick or Treat will be starting and I am part of the blog team covering it. Keep a look out for more soon with peeks at what you can find. Can’t wait? Check it out here.

Every Second Counts ’cause There’s No Second Try

Every Second Counts 'cause There's No Second Try

Saying goodbye to the past. Took my last look. Never turning back.

Leaves falling, slowly turning darker, drier, more brittle with each passing day. Ground crumbling beneath our feet. Announcing a change running its course. You can’t see the end. It blends in with the horizon, farther than you can see. Further than me.

Each step takes me closer. To the Dark. To the Light. Will you join me on this path? Or leave me to find my way? As I chase the Dream, you hesitate, scared to take the Leap.


This is my last post for this round of the Cart Sale. There is still so much to see so I highly recommend taking a look before the event ends on September 5th. All links listed below the credits.

If you’re looking for knits to start adding to your fall wardrobe, JellyRoll has you covered with their Hello Autumn dresses. I paired the one in Pine with some of my Blueberry jeans because it can be a bit brisk outside in the morning. Three fall colors are available, each for 10L. Sizes included are five standard mesh models and fitted models for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, and TMP mesh bodies. Some clipping may occur with some poses and pants depending on fit. You should have no trouble if you wear it as a dress though.

Also at the Cart Sale are some vegetables to plant in your garden. I have a fondness for pumpkins, so i could not resist picking up the ones from B’s 25! to prepare for fall. Get the Circle Garden set which gives you the option of a fully planted plot, an empty plot, and all the vegies on their own to make your garden the stuff of your dreams. This is perfect for landscaping or having some fall fun with your family.

Lastly, if you are planning to garden, pick up the beautifully crafted Garden Cart from Dictatorshop to help move your plants about the yard. Three versions are available at the Dictatorshop mainstore: PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. While not brand new, this piece is great for those who like a snuggle, or more, amongst nature. Menus on the PG version do not have any adult content, whereas only the Adult Kink version includes bondage content. You can change the texture of the Garden Cart by clicking the handle to match any of your outdoors tools. Check out all the details on the Dictatorshop website or try the demo in the shop.

See you all again soon and grab those 10L deals at the Cart Sale before they’re gone!

Girls Like You

Not in the spotlight. I stray amongst the shadows in constant thought. You probably don’t even notice me, lost in my own world. Quietly slipping in and out of the light that others loudly chase. But you noticed, didn’t you?

I won’t beg for your attention. I won’t beg for your time. Wandering, observing, dancing to an unheard tune. Reveling in the breath of life. I don’t ask to be understood.

You want easy? You want quiet? On your own time and at your beck and call? I’m not the one for you. You want fun? Playful? Dare to even want naughty? It doesn’t come easy and no apology will be given.

Without you, I’ll still thrive. I won’t beg for your attention. I won’t beg for your time. There’s no other girl like me.

Girls Like You


Okay people, we are getting down to the wire with the Cart Sale at the Wash! Only a few more days before it ends and you’ll be sad if you miss out! I’ve gathered a few more things together to show you what you can find for 10L. All links below the credits for those too eager to wait!

First up, in my first look, I am sharing the funky fun top that #hashbang! has out for sale in six fun colors. The Vaporized Top gives me an 80’s/90’s vibe with the layers and patterns on the chest. Sizes for this top include five standard mesh sizes and fitted mesh models for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, 2 Tonic, TMP, eBody, and Occasin mesh bodies. Guys will find a similar top for them in 7 different fitted mesh models for male mesh bodies and a standard classic fit. Behind me, I am using a backdrop from the Dark Fae which is also at the sale. Several colors are available and they are mod so you can resize them to suit your needs. I love the vibrant color and could not resist the purple one.

In my second look, I am wearing the Margo set from battle fairy. Five colors are available and each comes in sizes for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The fit is good but it is short, so careful bending over ladies! While not pictured, there are matching heels up for sale too. From Dark Knight Decor you’ll find lovely flower arrangements to add some charm to your home. I’ve set out one of the Carnation vases they have at the Cart Sale on my little side table. If you’re looking for bigger arrangements or other wall decor, they have just what you need. Since this was for my bedroom, I grabbed a room divider from DigitalDreams to add a little extra privacy. Several different designs are available to choose from so you’re sure to find one to match any part of your home. They also have beautiful autumn artwork ready to adorn your walls, some of which is photography from Real Life.

Lastly I am sharing a newer release from my sponsor Dictatorshop. The Vindustria Bed was released at ROMP and comes in three versions: PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. Each of these are sold separately but the Adult Kink version includes all of the animations you could desire. This bed has a touch of whimsy with it’s curved frame which has a curtain draped across the top. Located at the front of the bed, the Dictatorshop shop logo houses the menu for changing the texture of the bedsheets, security for who can access the menu, and the on/off option for the curtain. If you’re unfamiliar with the beautiful animation options Dictatorshop has, demos in the shop are set out for you to try. The Vindustria Bed is probably my new favorite bed on the grid. If you’re into the kinky side of life, the frame makes has perfect attachment points for bondage play. If not? Snuggle away in this sweet bed with a loved one. You can now find this bed in the Dictatorshop mainstore.

I should have one more post for you with Cart Sale goodies so keep an eye out for it! Until next time. ❤

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.

smell of you lingers_001

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!

smell of you lingers_002

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.

smell of you lingers_004smell of you lingers_006

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!
