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.

Remember to Let Her Into Your Heart

Hey Jude_001

Spring has sprung, showing her face here and there at last. With more sun, blooms peeking out, and birds chirping in the early hours again, there is a renewed sense of hope for brighter days ahead of us. Part of the season change, for me, is refreshing my look, cleaning out the old tired clothes, and finding new pieces that call to me. If I can find them on sale, even better! Today I am sharing some of the cute things for sale at the Cart Sale at the Wash that has been dubbed Sunny Side Up.

The dress that I’m wearing is from one of my favorite shops, Mishmash Fusion, and is called Imagine. Each color or pattern option comes with 8 different mesh models which are fitted for Slinks Physique and Hourglass, Bellezas Freya, Isis, and Venus; Maitreya Lara, eBody, and classic avatar standard fit bodies. The fit on my Maitreya Lara body is nice and the dress is sweet and cute. If you don’t want to show as much skin, you could wear some leggings underneath. For 10L, this dress is a bargain! I’ve paired this dress with a pair of cute heels in violet from the Dark Fae which are also at the Cart Sale. The Delicate Rose heels are available in 9 colors and fitted for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya mesh high feet. While there is not a fatpack option, if you get every pair, that’s only 90L and a steal in my opinion. Wear these heels with a pair of jeans to be cute and casual or wear them with a dress like I did for a nice afternoon out.

Around me you will see various decor on the wall that is from Dark Knight Decor. These pieces are perfect for a kitchen, bathroom, office space, or workshop to add a touch of spring.  Little details on each piece add to their charm like the woodgrain on the plank or the shine on the seed jars.  Each of these pieces and more cute knick knacks and flower arrangements are up for grabs for 10L apiece at the Cart Sale.

Hey Jude_002

My last item for this post is the shark which is from =EC Designs= and is one of two on sale for a limited time. After the Cart Sale, both will be put in a gacha at the =EC Design= mainstore with a bunch of other cute sharks. Each shark has a ton of single sits for females and males. Whether you are a parent, kid, or just like sharks, you don’t want to miss out on these amazing items! Toss a few of these out in a casual sitting area for a bunch of friends and just chill out or throw some out for your kids to have pirate battles with.

The Cart Sale runs until May 16th, so you still have time to grab these goodies. I will be posting again soon to share more gems! Stay posted. 🙂

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! ❤

Trade Them for a Package of Sunshine and Flowers

Bye bye birdy_001

Hey everyone! I am back again and sharing some finds from the Cart Sale. I know I’m a bit late but you MUST see some of the wonderful spring inspired releases available before it ends February 14th. Don’t waste any time and go check it out now!

Where do I begin? There’s so much goodness to find and all at a bargain price of 10L per item. I’ll start with what my friend is wearing. The sweet green dress from Mishmash Fusion comes in mesh sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, eBody bodies and standard fitmesh for classic avatars. At the Cart Sale, you can find this cute dress in six colors in the blossom print and two in a hearts prints all for 10L each. She paired her dress with these darling shoes and socks from The Dark Fae in the solid version. Each of the five packs of shoes with socks and the five sets of socks come with a HUD with several color or print options. Sizes come fitted for all Belleza, both Slink, Maitreya, and Tonic feet. These shoes and the sock versions are super adorable and honestly a steal considering each one has its own hud with color options.

Bye bye birdy_002

The second look is one I’m wearing in purple. I’m wearing a dress from K&A Design called Rhea and is available in three colors at the Cart Sale. This dress comes with all of the most popular mesh body sizes as well as standard mesh sizes and fitmesh sizes. I had no problems with fitting and the top part has just enough transparency for a little extra spice. My shoes are from Mishmash Fusion, made for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet and are available in three colors.

Bye bye birdy_003

My second look shows an outfit from battle fairy that is available in several colors. These sets can be mix and matched if you buy more than one color or mix them with other tops or bottoms to your liking. I love the texturing on the top and skirt; the back details of the top give this outfit a nice surprise as you turn. Sizes included for this dress fit all three Belleza, both Slink, and Maitreya bodies. My final look for this post is a combo of a top from Dark Water Designs and a skirt from CroM. Dark Water Designs has two color versions of this fringed top for sale and they come with five standard mesh sizes as well as fitted models for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink eBody, Tonic, TMP, and Ocacin. You could pair this with some bikini bottoms and a sarong or shorts and be beach ready! From CroM, the skirt is a vibrant blue mini skirt that comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP, eBody, and Tonic bodies.

I have a lot of the furniture pieces from =EC Designs= packed into this post and it’s really a steal if you grabbed everything. 60L for a full furniture set is a bargain. This retro inspired set works great for small spaces and offers a lot of animation options in the couch, chairs, cabinet, and bookcase for singles and couples. Just want the couch and chairs or just the chairs? Each item comes in its own pack so you can pick what you want. The drawers and cupboard doors all open on the cabinet and bookcase so you can display or “store” items as you desire. All of the table options come in a single pack as well. I’ve added a few of the items from Dark Knight Decor to add a soft spring touch to the room. The wall frame, chicken vases, and trio of frames are each on sale for 10L. You can also find more Valentine’s day appropriate decor and a set of rings for sale.

There’s only a couple days left of the Cart Sale, so stop by now before it’s too late! Links all below.

Saying All the Things I’m Thinking…

sexy bat room_001

Hello lovely people! The Cart Sale’s 10th Birthday/Anniversary round is nearing its end but I wanted to share a few more things to find there. All of the creators have really put in a ton of extra effort to make this a special event so don’t miss it before it ends on November 1st!

I have been feeling a little bit sexy lately and this is partly due to the new lingerie set I got from Dark Water Designs. This set is a gacha with babydoll dresses and panties that you can mix and match or if you snag the ultra rare, it is the fatpack of every solid lace and print option. The rares are fatpacks of the solid lace OR the print options. My favorite is the black and gray print version but there are many other pretty options to collect. For this post, my special man is guest starring and he seemed to like this set quite a bit as well. Sizes for this gacha are available for the Maitreya, all three Bellezas, both Slinks, TMP, and Standard bodies. Each pull is only 20L so play have fun playing this gacha and tease your man ladies! Or the fellas can gift them to their special someone too. 😉

sexy bat room_006

sexy bat room_002

Another lovely piece I found at the Cart Sale is from ..::battle fairy::.. and comes in several pattern versions. It fits nicely but careful how you lay, you may want some panties ladies! Mesh models included in each print version are made for Maitreya, all three Bellezas, both Slinks, TMP, and Standard bodies. Standard mesh models come in five sizes. If you’re feeling daring, grab this gem while it is on sale!

sexy bat room_005

Some of the furniture I used in the first photo are from events that have been going on in October. On the wall is a clock from An Lema that I thought was spooky fun and it is one of several items they have at the Cart Sale. Unless you are good at scripting/building, moving it around is a bit tricky because the pendulum seems to only swing on one rotation. For decor though, it suits the mood of the room plenty for me.

sexy bat room_004

I also wanted to share this piece from Dictatorshop that I got in the October Bound Box. The Venus Cubed Ladies Entertainment Center is excellent for teasing, pleasing, and lounging around. While animations are heavily geared towards females, there are still plenty of options for males to enjoy including the couples’ animations. There are not couple’s pg poses except for the dances so keep little ones away from this or tuck it away in your playroom. Textures can be changed via the Dictatorshop logo on the back as well as security options. If you’d like, you can also try adding your own textures to it for more versatility. If you missed out on this Bound Box, check out their HQ for past boxes. Check here for info on subscription boxes.

sexy bat room_003

From Vicarious Youth at the Cart Sale, you’ll find a few Halloween themed outfits. Some are matching for moms and their little girls, some are for teens or adults.  The outfit I’m wearing is Resting Witch Face and comes in five standard mesh sizes and mesh models for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. Bottoms and tops are combined so it’s easy fitting.

sexy bat room_008

On my shoulder is a little Voodoo gacha from =EC Designs= that they made for Cart Sale. Each one is scripted to randomly say something or you can click it to pester it into saying something as well. Voodoo dolls are also customizable if you want them to say something else. Collect them all!

sexy bat room_007

Lastly I want to share another item from =EC Designs= that is at the Cart Sale. For 50L, this piece has a LOT of animations to help you get cozy and comfy for the season. As someone who likes to let out her inner cat, this lounger is purrrfect for curling up with a good book or with your sweetie to enjoy some fresh air. All of these poses are PG so no worries if you have little ones. They may want you to put it in their room too because they can sit on top!

Cart Sale ends November 1st so hurry stop on by before it’s too late to swipe these bargains up!

Made My Skin a Little Bit Thicker

Boardwalk_011

A little bit of a rant or musing to start things off today followed by a special giveaway to celebrate reaching 50 blog posts! Read on to find out about the giveaway!

Lately I have been reminiscing on some of the events of the past year or so. Remembering the people that have moved in and out of my life and the lessons I have taken from them. It is incredible what an influence some people have had in such a short time while other lessons came from mistakes or taking a wrong turn. My morning has been a bit quieter than usual as I remember those lessons.

I know my last few posts have been a bit more upbeat and summery cheerful, so this post probably seems a bit less peppy. As a human, I can only be cheerful for so long before another obstacle gets thrown in my path that tries to knock me down. But you know what? I will keep fighting for the happiness I know I deserve. Maybe I need a day or two to get back into gear, but I will never stop swinging my bat at each ball that tries to strike me out. So my adventure for today took me to a baseball field in Chicago where I practiced focusing on hitting each ball out of the park and refocusing my mind on what is important. What is that you ask? Well… Me.

Boardwalk_012

Now that might sound selfish, but consider this. If you spread yourself too thin, trying to please everyone you come across, you can never be happy because you have no time for yourself and what makes you happy. This was something I’ve had to learn and really, I’m still working on it. My health and happiness are first and foremost before I can be expected to help others. I will always make time for those who are closest to me; yet I have reevaluated who those people are and adjusted my priorities accordingly to give myself the best chance of smiling every day. Life is too short. Spend it doing what you love and with the people you love.

Boardwalk_013

So, you’re probably wondering by now if i will just get to the clothes I’m wearing. Don’t fret! Today I am wearing a fun T-shirt dress from Dark Water Designs that is currently at the Cart Sale in three colors and a couple solid knit versions. Included are five standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza Isis & Venus, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. I really love how this dress fits and feels a bit sporty. The small clipping on the leg is really only visible because of the pose I used. Wear it to a game or at home while getting comfy on the couch. I paired it with some of my favorite sneakers from REIGN and was set for the day. Find this dress and more at the Cart Sale before it ends July 5th!

Boardwalk_015

Now on to the giveaway that I mentioned. My sponsors =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have kindly donated a couple gift cards to help me mark the occasion of reaching 50 blog posts. The prizes are a 500L Gift Card to =EC Designs= and a 400L Gift Card for Mishmash Fusion. If you browse my blog and Flickr, you’ll see some of the items of theirs I have blogged in the past. How to enter to win? Comment below with what you enjoy doing in the summer and your secondlife username. I will be using a random name picker to select a winner who will be announced in the comments, Facebook Page, Plurk, and Twitter. Deadline to enter will be Saturday July 8th at 5:00PM SLT.

Until next time! ~ Autumn

I Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

Boardwalk_010

Another gorgeous day here! I hope you all are enjoying the sun and staying cool. Today I want to share more great finds from the Cart Sale to use while you try to cool off in the heat wave that is upon us.

Boardwalk_006

Like I mentioned in my last blog post, I am excited for different summer adventures but this weekend got to be a little too hot! So I decided I needed to find a good way to cool off and well, the best way to do that is around water. One of the other items I found from =EC Designs= at the Cart Sale is this awesome raft. Built from sturdy lumber and decked out with comfy pillows and a blanket to lay on while you sunbathe, this raft is perfect for floating down the stream or hanging out on the lake. A raft can hold two singles, or a couple and has animations for singles for females and males as well as couple poses. Poses are adjustable so you can find just the right spot to cuddle your honey or get just the right amount of water on your toes.

Boardwalk_002

From Mishmash Fusion I am showing you a few different versions of the Xanadu Trikini. I invited a few friends over to chill with me and we turned it into a swimsuit party on a couple of my new rafts. First up, my lovely friend Cara is wearing the Blue Paisley version of the Trikini for Slink Physique. Miri is wearing a special hunt edition in red on the Maitreya Lara body. Find this lovely piece until the hunt ends this Friday (though Myst told me she may leave it out longer). I am wearing the Blue Transparent version on my Maitreya Lara body. Sizes included for all versions are Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, eBody, Standard Large, and Standard Small. General fit seems nice on the Slink Physique body but there is minor clipping on the tummy and hips of the Maitreya when moving. This is in part due to shape, different ao movements, and the way the original mesh creator built the mesh. Please try a demo to be sure of what you are going to see before purchasing. The transparent versions are very transparent and do show all bits so wear with caution! Or tempt that eye candy with it. 😉

That is all for now! I hope to have another post up soon with a few more things to share but don’t wait! Go check out the Cart Sale now while everything is at bargain prices.
