It’s Never Quite As It Seems

superman_008

There is a strange magic in the air; I sensed it not long ago, shifting and turning about as it changes directions. Before the new moon, my energies were high, my hopes great. Like the sea, the tidal changes keep me off balance but one thing is for certain. I will never quit dreaming and feeling the magic with every change. Change, that thing we all detest because it brings the strange, the unknown, the chaos, and often the painful. Yet, with each change, no matter dark or light, there is beauty.

So as we embrace the coming of summer, shedding the dregs of a cold winter, remember to take with you winter’s bittersweetness. Without the dark, there is no light.  Take the darkness, mold it and shape it as you dream, using it to fuel your passions for the coming seasons and your dreams.


Less than a day left of the Cart Sale and I’m still finding gems to pick up. Today I am wearing some cute earrings from Poème that are mandalas and come in a range of colors to choose from. Pair them with your favorite bohemian look or some jeans and t-shirt for a little extra charm.

On my back you can see a new tattoo I found from InnerJoy Love Designs called Henna. It’s a beautifully done tattoo that comes with Omega appliers with the option of light or dark depending on how new you want it to look. Classic tattoo layers are also included. For 10L, this is a real steal. I also picked up more nail polish from De’Fient Unicorn. This set is for Maitreya Lara nails only and has a hud with fIve color options for both hands and feet.

For the guys, there’s some nice casual clothing to snatch up. My friend is wearing the shirt from the Faded Denim Weekend set by Dark Water Designs.This set comes with two versions of the shirt, with or without the undershirt, in TMP, 3 fitted mesh, and 3 standard mesh sizes. Shorts come in four mesh sizes. Overall fit was good and the set is set up for mixing and matching with other clothing.

Lastly I am sharing a newer release from Dictatorshop that is currently at ROMP. The Contempo bed is loaded with all of your favorite animations and matching leathers to go with the Contempo line. There are three different options for sale; PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. PG version has only the cuddles and snuggles, no adult animations. Adult Vanilla adds the fun animations but none of the bondage related ones. Adult Kink has everything; cuddles, massages, vanilla adult animations, MaleDom and FemDom animations, and the new threesome menu that was requested. While the beds are at ROMP, they are 20% off until they move into the mainstore after May 26th.

Just Start Loving Me

Just Start Loving Me_001

It’s been over a week since Valentine’s day. But there’s still plenty of fluff and hearts floating around the grid you wouldn’t think the day of love had passed. If you’re looking for some new furniture that has a romantic touch, there’s a few pieces from Dictatorshop that are purrfect year-round. Have a looksy at some of my new bedroom additions. You’re sure to find something you can’t live without.

Just Start Loving Me_012

For the centerpiece of your or your loved one’s bedroom, Dictatorshop has a romantic bed at Cosmopolitan at 20% off full price through February 24th. This bed only comes in the Adult version but there are plenty of PG animations to use if that’s not your style. The stool that came in this February’s Bound Box matches the main texture of the bed. Edit: The stool’s textures can be changed between a variety of love and floral themed textures and the bed has some nice soft colors to choose from that have a spring feel. It is an adult bed, but there’s menus for singles, couples cuddles and kisses, and massage as well.

Just Start Loving Me_003

On sale at the mainstore is a fabulous addition to the Chesterfield set, the Chesterfield Ladies’ Chaise. This piece is perfect for lounging in your bedroom with a book, relaxing, or snuggling up with your fella. My favorite part of this set is that there are bento animations that are just so adorable and too perfect for words. If you love being cute and flirty or love taking photos with your love, there are lots of nice poses to choose from. Like the other pieces in the set, you can change the texture of the leather and metals through the hud in the back.

Just Start Loving Me_006

Another gem that was inspired by all of the romantic ideas of Valentine’s day was the Lip Chairs and Thrones. Choose either the PG version of the sofa or the adult version with all of the throne options in the Dicatorshop line.  Both sets include the choice of either regular lips or a mustache lips sofa. Animations included are single sits, cuddles, and dances for the PG sofa.

Just Start Loving Me_007

Whether you love Valentine’s day or just love romantic style furniture, there’s a lot to pick from this month at Dictatorshop that suits every hopeless romantic. On a special note, Dictatorshop is holding a short sale this weekend. Get 40% off giftcards through February 26th.

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. ❤
