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!

Sim: Rally to Rescue

Dates: July 8th to July 12th

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!

Hey everyone! March came around pretty quick. There’s so much going on this month that I will be hopping around like a bunny! Fi’s The Chicken Egg Hunt starts on March 10th and the Wash Cart Sale starts on March 16th. Today, though, I am featuring a Twisted Hunt item and an item that is NOT for children. All images are safe for viewing but context is for 18+ only, so here’s your heads up! Continue reading

My Immortal: Gifts for the Elven Forest Hunt

It’s December. It’s cold. Unless you’re in Secondlife where it can be summer all year. If you’re not in the mood for all the traditional winter hunts and festivities going on this time of year (or simply like fairies, magic, and/or spring), the Elven Forest Hunt is just right for you! This round of Fi’s Hunts is inspired by elves, fairies, and nature and I’ll be sharing a bit about some of the goodies on the hunt path.

One of my favorite pieces from the hunt so far is an outfit from Mishmash Fusion. In the couples picture, I’m wearing the outfit which comes in standard sizes and includes a circlet and foot jewelry for slink high feet. I think the main reason I love it so much is the subtlety of the colors and textures. Other than my boobs, which frankly I’ve always had to smoosh into tops lol, I had no trouble fitting the skirt and top to my mesh body. This is another well done and fun outfit from Mishmash Fusion. 🙂

Another of the outfits offered as a gift is a cute fairy dress with wings from Fi’s Creations. I could not wait to get my hands on this little dress as it reminds me of fairies I’ve seen in children’s films. The wings are included though you may have to attach them to your spine and rotate them in build mode to look correct. Paired with the right jewelry and hair, you’ll be flitting about with a touch of magic. The sparkles on my feet and hands are from a Gacha at =EC Designs=. Try your luck for one of the many pretty colors or you can snag the fatpack and have them all.

My third outfit features pieces from different places. The corset from WICKED is mesh and has a Hud with six texture variations for the bust and ribcage. I love the detail and that the back actually looks like someone had to tie it. My headpiece is from Acios and Redrose Jewellry designed the cute fairy choker. Any of these pieces would look cute with simple day wear or as Roleplay accessories. In all of my looks, I’m wearing nail polish from [Rad Designs]. Five enchanting patterns on Slink and Belleza appliers, will have your fingers looking charmed.

Other items from this hunt are seen in multiple photos. The tree lantern is from Magnum Opus and is only 1 prim! Perfect for lighting up enchanted forests. A small twig setup with a fireflies lantern from HJM Designz would make an adorable addition to a hidden sanctuary. In the background, you can see a gray statue with blue flora from Darkmatter that could be a great focal point for secret garden. {Sickly SWEET} created the bench I’m sitting on. Several singles poses allow the user ample choices for admiring their surroundings.

From Tipsters there’s a beautifully crafted fairy tip jar. Is that blue ball of flame going to be used for good or bad? You’ll have to find out. But I would think it’s a good thing since my dragon buddies from =EC Designs= Gacha don’t appear to be afraid of her. Dragon Buddies come in both a rezzable follower or a hover version. The fatpack is also available for those who want them all. Oh, and did I mention they talk when clicked? Each Dragon Buddy has a few unique phrases that give them their own personality.

Click through the photos below to get a better look at these lovely goodies. Hunt info, start point, and hunt website are linked below the photo gallery.

Happy hunting!

Baby It’s Cold Outside? More Goodies from Fi’s Hunts

Help me! I’m drowning in gifts! I can’t believe how many wonderful creations Fi’s Hunts’ Warm Socks Hunt 2 & Gacha Event has in store for everyone. The hunt is still going on from now to November 30th (Links below). With so many goodies, I can’t quite decide what to show you first this time. There’s shoes, stockings, sweater dresses, and cute furniture pieces to decorate for the cold seasons ahead. For this post, I will be putting the credits after each series of photos to avoid confusion since there’s so many items pictured.

With the temperature dropping, I’ve had to find new socks and stockings to keep my toes warm. Luckily, Sweet Tea Couture made a couple cute stockings along with cute garters that come with omega and slink appliers. The garters are resizeable to fit any avatar. Here I’ve paired it with a romper from Blueberry so you can see how high one set go, plus I just love this little romper for hanging about the house or a quick jaunt out with the kids. I’m also wearing a pair of ankle boots from Euphoria Couture’s WSH2 Gacha machine. For the other pair of socks, I wore a pair of Blueberry jeans, a sweater from Kita’s Sideshow, and the ultra rare Nordic Winds Boots from Euphoria Couture’s gacha. The gacha ankle boots are made for slink flat feet and I think I found my new kicking-it-around boots.

While I was dressing, I happened upon the hunt gift from Euphoria Couture which my sl hubby seemed to like as he was more than happy to cuddle for a bit while I snapped a few pictures. The shirt is roomy (as if I’d stolen it from my husband’s closet) and comes with a pair of bootie socks to keep your toes warm. On my legs are the rain socks from TRASHED that come with Omega, Slink, and TMP appliers. I like these because the rain drops go all the way down the leg. TRASHED is also giving out the shark socks seen in the second picture which come in multiple sizes to fit anyone’s feet. The piece we’re cuddling on is a mudroom shelf with cuddles from Magnum Opus; with singles and couples poses, I can see this being useful outside in some tucked away corner of the yard.

Next I decided to try on a sweater and legging look with boots from Country Couture. The sweater fits nicely and the leggings come with many applier options including omega. No worries about needing mesh feet either; they’re resizeable and quite waterproof. I added a necklace and earrings set from Redrose Jewellry. The jewelry set are cute little socks that catch the light at just the right angle. Female and male versions are included. The fireplace in my living room from Love Everlasting Plantpets was so warm I didn’t even have to sit too close to it and it is perfect for a mountain lodge or getting ready for the winter holidays. Don’t forget to put your Hot Cocoa and cookies tipjar out for Santa. And if you get sleepy after a big dinner, An Lema’s Chaise lounge offers a relaxing spot to rest.

For my next look I am wearing a sweater dress from WICKED that I absolutely adore. It has a nice fit, is elegant and chic, and warm! I was pleased again with WICKED’s hunt gift. The heels from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes fit nicely once I resized them with the included script and gave my outfit a soft feminine touch. Some of the other shoes pictured on the steps are from Lindy Mondern’s gacha machine but are not mesh feet friendly if that is what you are looking for.

Well it looks like I found something to wear. Time to step outside! An Lema’s rug makes a great welcome mat and Love Everlasting’s gacha tree cozies make for an inviting front porch. If you’re the type of person who loves to decorate early, make sure to snag the hunt gift from Magnum Opus. This snowman is a whimsical addition to any yard. Due to a recent snow my house experienced, I opted for my new sweater from !Mutiny in Heaven, new knit leggings from .miss chelsea. I got at Uber, and ankle boots from REIGN. The sweater comes with two knotted sweaters that fit around your shoulders or waist. Even with some belly showing I was warm as could be. Okay, stepping out into the cold now. I’m ready to stay warm in the winter. 🙂

Have fun hunting!
