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.

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! 🙂

Hi everyone! Today I have a lot to show you. So many pictures I can’t wait to share! As I noted in my last post, I am back to blogging for the Cart Sale located on the Wash sim. The current round runs from December 14, 2016 to January 4, 2017. What is so awesome about this event? Each item is only 10 linden and for this round, quite a few vendors have transferrable items. So, if you are looking for Christmas gifts and are on a budget, take a look around! Link to the sim will be below along with all other links. Hang on folks, this is going to be a long post, but you’re sure to find something you’ll love!

First up on my list is the Holiday Corset Dress from Dark Water Designs. This snug corset dress is perfect for the semi-formal and casual Christmas get togethers or event just a nice dinner out. At the Cart Sale, you have the option of three different colors for this dress and then the option of a pack with standard meshes and fitted mesh OR a pack with fitted mesh sizes for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza. This dress would be perfect for a gift for a girlfriend, sister, aunt, any female friends! I paired this dress with The Little bat’s Ribbon Choker in silver to bring a bit of playful holiday spirit in to my look. Several colors are included in the pack, so there is sure to be one to match any outfit. Both my hair and boots are from subscription boxes I joined for December. The boots are from EMPIRE for Luxe Box and the hair is from Doe for Bishbox.

My second look includes the gown Mishmash Fusion has up for sale. Standard mesh sizes are included along with sizes for Matireya, the 3 Belleza, and 2 Slink bodies. The gown itself fits very well on my Maitreya Lara and is very pretty for an evening party or formal pictures. I can even see this being used as a bridesmaid’s dress for a wedding if you pair it with one of her fur trimmed capes that are also being sold. My hair is currently on sale on the Marketplace from TRUTH for Second Life’s 12 Days of Savings. I don’t buy a lot of hair from TRUTH but fell in love with this one when I saw it on a friend and it happened to be on sale for 75 linden. SCORE!

For my third look, I swapped the long gown for a fun little dress from .::battle fairy::. that comes fitted for Maitreya, 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, and TMP bodies as well as standard mesh sizes. This pretty little number comes in several different pattern variations but I just adored Flurry because of its wintry feel. While it may not keep my legs too warm, they certainly look fabulous.

Now throughout my pictures, you can see a variety of furniture, a lot of which is at the Cart Sale. One of my favorite pieces is the Cozy Living Room set from =EC Designs= which includes the fireplace, table with candles and books, and the sofa. This is the Winter version of the set which is a special for the event. The fireplace can be turned on and off, volume of the flames adjusted, and security set via the menu accessed with a Touch. Click the candle wicks to light the candles or turn them off too! Plenty of singles and PG couples animations in the sofa will make this the perfect addition to your house and for families.

In the corner, you can see my lovely Buckley’s Rocking Horse. While Dictatorshop is known for adult furniture, this horse comes in a PG version too so that you can have it out around families for holiday festivities. The animations are smooth and natural. Menus for singles have animations on and off the horse while four menus have PG cuddles, kisses, dances, and riding the horse animations. Only the adult version has animation options under the Adult menu button. Poses are adjustable and swappable. Included with either version are rezzable and wearable huds to change various parts of the Horse so you can match it to your home décor. Note: This is a main store release. NOT at the Cart Sale.

Another item of note is the Gramophone on my Modern Tree table. The Gramophone actually plays the song Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and is only 2 prims. Nothing says holiday spirit like good music in a cozy warm setting with loved ones. And with pets! Who doesn’t love a kitty sleeping by the fireplace?

Well that is all I have for now. My holidays will be very busy. If I have time, I will blog more before the New Year, but don’t wait around! Go see what is at the Cart Sale while you can. Remember, all items are 10 linden and some are transferrable. Happy holidays everyone!
