Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight ’cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight 'cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

February, the month of love and romance, is almost over. While most think of it as the time for couples, it’s also a good time to show ourselves a bit of self-love. A reminder if you will, that YOU are amazing and deserving of love just the way you are. Whether you fit into one of society’s supposed “perfect” boxes or dance to the beat of your own drum, we’re all a work in progress just trying to win our battles each day. So in honor of love and being true to ourselves, treat yourself this month. Buy yourself your favorite treat, watch your favorite show or movie, and just take a moment each day to look in the mirror and tell yourself “I’m awesome the way I am.”

With the onset of spring fast approaching, I often find myself wanting to redecorate to give my surroundings a fresh look. Sprucing up my home is therapeutic for me and I’ve found some lovely things recently. =EC Designs= has created some fun new furniture sets for your homes inworld which are currently being exclusively sold at the SL Home and Garden Expo. The Home and Garden Expo is a huge event that supports Relay For Life, a cause near and dear to many of us. One of their new adorable sets that is up for 50/50 Donations is the Garden Patio Set. Included in this set are a loveseat, chair, and table that are spring green and golden yellow. Both the chair and the loveseat have several female and male single sits which can be accessed in any sitting spot. Couples can cozy up together on the Loveseat to enjoy a nice afternoon in the sun.

Their Gemini Lounger is up for 100% RFL donations as well. If you’re up for hunting, their Laced Up Chair is their hunt prize and will add a fun quirky vibe to any room in your house. Lastly, they have an item up for auction for the Expo.

She Gazed with a Loving Beauty

Twisted Hunt Pic_007

Fall is officially and as many of you know, it is my favorite season. I love the cooler temps, the changing colors on the leaves, everything pumpkin spice, and Halloween! I also really connect with the idea of the life cycle and what this time represents in that cycle. It’s a reminder that all things end but there is still beauty in that ending. Speaking of endings, the Twisted Hunt is fast coming to a close but I wanted to share a little from the hunt which ends September 30.

My friend Myst at Mishmash Fusion is a merchant for the Twisted Hunt and is shop #42 on the hunt path. For this round, she’s made a gorgeous set of outfits for both females and males to wear inspired by the Victorian Goth hunt theme. Ladies can find themselves twirling about in this vision of red and black top/skirt set that together fits like a dress. On the back of the top is a lovely corset lace detail that tastefully shows a bit of skin that I just love. The textures on this outfit, called Remy’s Song, look great especially with advanced lighting on. Sizes included are classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and fitted models for Maitreya, both Slinks, Belleza bodies, both Tonics, and TMP bodies. Men will find a dashing suit in red and black that comes in classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and a pair of black shoes to complete the look. The stripes running down the Knives’ Suit are nice and sharp and will have any man feeling tall. Other color variations of both outfits are available in the gacha machines as well as other goodies.

I also wanted to share a new item from Dictatorshop. The Driftwood Swing is a lovely addition to any yard and functions both as landscaping and a cozy spot for cuddles and more. Currently it is being sold exclusively at The Cosmopolitan Event which runs from now until October 7. While at the event, you can get this incredible piece 20% off in either Adult or PG only versions (Adult version includes the PG version). What I love about this set is that the animations are all great as I expect but also that the singles poses can be changed independently from the other person sitting with you. There’s so many choices I have no doubt you will love it like I do. In the menu for the Adult version, there are all of the PG poses as well as a fully loaded adult menu with both Vanilla and BDSM options. For more info on this set, see it inworld at the shop or check out Dee’s blog post here. Get it at the event while you can!

A few other things of note, I’ve changed the logo for the blog and I’d like to give a huge shoutout/thank you to my friend Myst Cobalt for designing it for me. 🙂 I also want to remind you all that Cart Sale is coming up October 11 and it is a special round. Cart Sale is celebrating 10 years! There will be gifts, there will be gachas, and there will be lots of great deals! I will be covering the event so stay tuned!

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!
