Wake Up Where the Clouds Are Far Behind Me

Over the Rainbow_001

Good day folks! I’m feeling a little light on my feet today and maybe a touch whimsical. I feel a bit like Dorothy, floating up high with the birds and headed somewhere over a rainbow in the clouds. Not quite sure what’s in these balloons but they are lighter than air! I’m sharing just a couple more items today that you can find at the Cart Sale. Tomorrow is the last day so check it out ASAP.

Over the Rainbow_002

My dress for this picture comes from Classy Chics and is made only for the Maitreya body. There are ten color/prints up for sale for 10L and each comes with a tintable sleeve option that adds a bit more coverage and adds a subtle cutesy vibe. Pantie appliers in white and black are also included since it is such a short dress. My shoes are from Lourdes of London and are made for Slink only. There are five colors available to pick from and they make great staple pieces for any wardrobe. Dress them up for a night out or dress them down with a cute pair of jeans. Lastly, I wore the panties from Girlush’s lingerie set instead of the ones that came with the dress. This set is fitted for Maitreya as well and has a smexy lacey texture that just barely hides what it needs to. All of these items I’ve described are on sale for 10L at the Cart Sale.

Over the Rainbow_003

Just for fun, the balloon floatie I’m sitting on is from Blueberry and is a group gift OR you can get it off the Marketplace for 1L. It comes in a pack of 10 floaties with really cute rubber duckies, froggies, other balloons and more.

I have more to share from my sponsor Dictatorshop and hope to post again soon so see you next time! ❤

Another Winter Day Has Come and Gone Away

Sledding_005

Sanctuary. Peace. Tranquility. We all have different images that come to mind when we read or hear these words. For some they are tropical beaches with shady palm trees and clear blue water. Someone else might picture a vast forest of various species of trees, some changing with the colors of fall and birds quietly chirping overhead. Perhaps they are sitting indoors, blankets and a cat nestled around oneself, rain or snow falling outside the window.

I’ve found myself searching for peace and quiet lately. The desire for solitude ebbs and flows in me like the tide, changes like the seasons, and never really disappears. Clarity. When I hear this word I inevitably think of snowflakes and crystals. Wouldn’t a more accurate image be water or glass? Maybe. In any case, moments of solitude often bring a sense of clarity that is so rejuvenating and enlightening to me. When faced with a problem, only withdrawing from the world and into a book or taking pictures in Secondlife has ever given me true clarity and peace of mind.

Sledding_002

For this picture, I decided to play in the snow with some sleds made from Dictatorshop. The bench sled has a combination of both PG and Adult animations set up for all combinations of genders and dominance styles. While the bench sled has the option of cuddles and a nice blanket, the standing sled (also OMNI with all four gender and dominance styles) which is sold separately is more like Dictatorshop’s bondage crosses. Also included with the standing sled is a snowball giver for some added playful winter games. Both sleds have an excellent selection of animations under all of its menus. If you don’t mind a bit of cold weather, these sleds give a new definition to a winter wonderland.

Bulletproof, Nothing to Lose

Poppy_001

Pitter patter drip drap
Rainfall on the windowpane
Soft as a lover’s kiss

Rap rap tink tink
Like broken glass falling upon the ground
Gentle as an ocean wave

Splish sploosh splat
Puddles overflowing in streets
Peacefully chaoticly dancing

Nothing breaks its spirt
Everything gives it beauty
The water dancer never halts

Flowing, dancing, rolling and circling
Unpredictable
Dependable
Danger
Safety
Life


In my picture, I am wearing the Poppy Jacket and Poppy Leggings from Blueberry. Both come in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, and Belleza Venus, Isis, and Freya bodies. The leggings come with a hud that allows you to pick which type of booty you want because Blueberry created a new Blueberry booty but also included the standard booty option. You can also choose a yoga foot version or an under boot version in either booty type on the included HUD. An additional fun button is the wedgie animation because these leggings really hug every curve! The jackets include the option to have a double color effect on the cuffs and part of the front.

Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair

Masion beach shot_004

Summer is nearing its end and I find myself feeling a bit bittersweet about it. I suppose there is a bit of sadness for another ending and I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to, but such is life. Of course I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures and fall is my favorite season with colorful leaves, pumpkins, black cats, and ghoulies peeking around corners.

In the early hours of the morning I will be leaving for my last summer adventure to Hawaii, a place I have never been to yet and have wanted to visit for years. Images of the sea and white beaches, abundant flora across an island, and a love of tradition come to mind when I think of this place. Not just volcanoes, grass skirts, and coconuts. I don’t really know what it will be like, but I am excited to go and enjoy a new atmosphere. While Hawaii is a part of the United States, its roots are much older and I am looking forward to learning about Polynesian culture.

Perhaps I am also a little sad because my great grandmother has been on hospice care for a few weeks and the recent visit I had with her may be my last. I have loved going to see her, but it is also difficult to watch her wither away. We talked about my upcoming trip, and she said it sounded like it would be nice and wishes she would’ve gone sometime but she had never been a big traveler. She tells me I need to bring a boyfriend back home with me. I chuckled and told her I would be trying to anyway. She gives me hope. Don’t I love her just for that?

So as I finish up packing and get my carry on ready, I am keeping my great grandmother in my heart, taking her with me to Hawaii to create new memories to share with my family and friends. I will be putting flowers in my hair and enjoying what adventure and love I can find.

Aloha! ❤

I’ve Got the Eye of the Tiger

Eye of the Tiger_001

Hello lovely people! I am feeling pretty good and loving my summer. I hope everyone in the USA had a happy and safe Independence Day. Mine was pretty relaxing. Just a few thoughts I would like to share today.

If you read my last post, you’ll note I have been refocusing on what makes me happy these days. Putting myself first. Last week I got the itch to take a sexy photo or two, so I did and I started thinking about something. How do you start putting yourself first? Easy. Your voice.

Eye of the Tiger_004

Okay maybe not so easy. Actually really not easy at times. Particularly if you really worry about what the people around you think. Sometimes it is really hard to tell someone what they need to hear. It’s hard to tell others what we want. We want people to like us so we say “Yes” even though we really want to say “NO.”

At times, it may not be easy, but if you use your voice, you will be heard. And I don’t mean just once in awhile. Consistently and honestly (and mostly politely unless they’re being a complete imbecile) say what you mean with your voice. Family and friends can support and care for you but they are unable to reach out and give you what you want. They can’t read your mind. They can help in some ways but the only one who can truly help get you where you want to be is yourself. So do what I am doing or trying to do… Roar.

Honestly, this post is a shoutout to all the lovely ladies in my life that are going through hard times right now. I may not have gone through the same situation, but we all go through rough times and we sink. We need reminders that we are worth it. We deserve happiness. We deserve love. We deserve to do whatever makes our hearts glow. Don’t let anyone make you believe otherwise. Even when we make mistakes, keep going, and don’t stop. Continue following your heart and the rest will follow.

Eye of the Tiger

My look today is inspired by my inner Tigress and the empowering lyrics of Katy Perry’s Roar. My dress and lingerie set are from Blueberry in the Date Night set. Mesh fitted models included are for Maitreya, 3 Belleza bodies, and 2 Slink bodies. This set comes in several colors and the fatpack option includes exclusive color options. I recently went to Hair Fair and grabbed Aschera made by Runaway. The rings and shells on the hair have several color options and add an extra exotic touch that has me feeling sexy and confident. Grab it at Hair Fair to support Wigs for Kids! Only a few days left.

So cheers to my girlies (and the gents too!)! You know who you are. Without you I would not be where I am today and you’ve certainly helped me find my roar. Love to you all and see you soon. ❤

So I’m Gonna Love You Now

Love Me Now_002

April is here and I am enjoying seeing flowers beginning to crop up from the ground. The showers will pour as they inevitably do, but with the rain comes new life and I’m finding I need that reminder as of late. A lot has been on my mind so I’ve been taking time to de-stress and just recharge. So I decided to take a little stroll and found a spot to relax, cuddle up with someone, and just pass the time.

This cozy spot I found is in a little gazebo made by =EC Designs=. It is for the Cart Sale at the Wash in birch and walnut for only 10L. Along with the gazebo, you get a bench, a little fountain pitcher, and a tree stump with cuddles. Not only is the set the perfect focal point for any garden, it has a multitude of single and couple animations in the bench, cuddle stump, AND the gazebo itself. Each set has a decorative tree stump and a pitcher fountain to complete the charm. 10L is a steal with all the animation options for singles and couples in each piece. Get yours in one or both wood options while you can!

My look today has a couple pieces from Luxe Box and Bishbox which are subscription boxes in secondlife. My lovely top is from Tee*fy (Lara and both Slink sizes) and my shoes are from Empire (Lara, both Slink, 3 Belleza, and TMP sizes), both in March’s Luxe Box. Both items fit well and have lovely texture options on their HUDs. On my ears you’ll find gorgeous earrings by Empyrean Forge. These come with a hud that lets you change the metal color. My hair is from Doe; I adore this hair because I love Doe’s gingers and her textures are so well done. Two sizes are included with one that is designed with larger breasts in mind. All color pack huds come in this set and you are able to change the hat color from a sizable array of options. Both earrings and hair are from March’s Bishbox. For info on how to join either subscription box, please check my favorites tab for the page on subscription box websites.

Finally, my smexy pants are Blueberry’s latest pants release. Gracie comes in a wide selection of denim and leather options for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, all three Belleza, and TMP mesh body sizes. The fatpack has exclusive metallic colors. What is really special about these pants is that you get the option of just the pant or a version with a cute boot attached with beautiful beadwork on the heel. Metals and beads can be changed via the included HUDs. As many of us know, Blueberry makes our butts look fabulous.

Love Me Now_004_002

I’ll be posting again soon with more finds from the Cart Sale. See you again soon! 🙂

Nothing But a Hound Dog: Rally to Rescue!

nothing-but-a-hound-dog_28199088356_o

One of the true joys in life has to be the unconditional love of an animal. You give them food, shelter, and love, and they give you so much more than words can describe. You gain a loyal friend, a confidante, a constant companion, and the a sense of hope and peace only found in the bond between an animal and human. Now there are many noble causes in the world to fight for; one that is very close to my heart is that of animal rescue.

Every single animal deserves a loving home. These creatures know no hate other than natural predatory instincts in the wild, and sometimes, not even then. There are countless videos and pictures on the web showing animals that normally don’t get along laying right next to each other. Cats have nursed puppies and vise versa. A deer grew up in one woman’s home with her dog; after she had been released she still came back to play with the dog. It amazes me what hope animals bring into this world. But not all animals are so lucky.

Ghost Bullys MC has chosen to be the voice for animals who can’t speak for themselves to ask for help. They are currently holding their second annual fundraiser event to provide funds for no kill animal rescue shelters and have partnered with several well known SL designers (list of sponsors at the end of this post) to offer exclusive items for the event. All sales and donations from the event will go to Animal Rescues. You can find find receipts from last year’s event at the landing point for Rally to Rescue. There are multiple events still to come at the Rally to Rescue site and two days left to shop using the Shopping Hud. To use the Hud, simply open the dog that is sent to you, attach the Hud, allow it to animate you, and click which shop you want to visit! Below is the schedule for all the things to do and see. Contact Raceyy Resident inworld for more information!

The dress I’m wearing comes in a fatpack version from Blueberry and comes in all standard mesh sizes as well as fitted meshes for the Maireya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. Panties are included as a part of the dress which can be turned on and off via the Panties Hud and the colors of both the dress and the panties can be changed via a separate Hud.

TRUTH HAIR is also participating in this event with this lovely mesh hair in all of their color packs.  Two sizes are included to ensure a good fit but always try a demo before purchase!

If you’re wondering where i picked up this box of kittens, take a look around =Zenith=. They seem to be overflowing with the little furballs. Maybe pick up a few while you’re there? They come in different colored baskets and plenty of different colored kitties to choose from. All color and texture change options are included in your purchase via a convenient texture Hud. Considering how cute they are, you may end up taking them all home! Which, in the end, is what this event is all about. Let’s give every animal a chance for a forever home. Remember, ALL sales and ALL donations from this event go to help animals in need!
