Naked to Nothing More Than Who We Are

FG17_008

 

For today’s post, I decided to take on one of Strawberry Singh’s #SecondLifeChallenges.  I’ve been in a somewhat reflective mood since my grand grandmother passed away about a week ago and I thought this might be a good way to ponder life and get back into blogging more. If you’d like to participate too, here’s the link to Strawberry’s post with all of the details.

First a word about today’s picture. The image for this post is my Fallen Gods Inc. 2017 Gods and Goddesses Photo Contest entry, the skin being the participation prize from last’s years photo contest. My love for this look is only surpassed by my surprise and awe at the luck I had in getting this shot. Go check out all the other pretty pictures in the temple here!

Now on to the challenge… Seven facts about my SecondLife avatar or SecondLife that may not be obvious to any of you, my lovely readers.

  1. I really can not stand sl voice. Besides the fact that I despise my own voice, it seems that people who use mic tend to forget to keep people who type included in the conversation. That and the quality of mic sound in sl varies by person AND I am hearing impaired. So, I dislike sl voice immensely.
  2. I have had two sl partnerships in my four years and four months on sl. Both of which lasted over the average of four months for sl relationships. The longer of the two relationships lasted two years.
  3. I am seldom without my jerboa tail. The only time I take it off is for blog posts at times or for roleplay. For a short time I was never without wings but I always return to neko.
  4. I have only roleplayed in Game of Thrones sims. The few sims I have roleplayed on have been places my sl parents roleplayed at for Game of Thrones because I don’t like to roleplay in sims I don’t anyone and because I only wanted to roleplay Game of Thrones.
  5. My first and only mesh head is my current one, the LeLutka Bento Simone, courtesy of the fabulous Sophia Harlow.
  6. I really don’t like changing my shape and skin. It throws me off. I only do so for roleplay characters or artistic photos. I’ll change my hair frequently but not my skin or shape.
  7. I have absolutely no idea how to landscape or edit terrain in sl. Zero. I’ve never owned land where I could experiment with it.

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. ❤

I’m Hungry… I Hope You’ll Feed Me

Im Hungry_010 (7).png

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are finally seeing warmer temperatures and a bit of sun here and there (well at least some of us). With the warmer weather, moods are improving and getting a little more flirty. I know I am ready for some summer fun. But before that I decided I needed to update some of my furniture for when I have guests. Before reading further, please note, while there is no nudity, adult furniture is pictured below.

With only a few days left in April, there’s still a surprising number of events that have not been open long and will be ending at the end of the month. A bit like stardom for some people I’d expect. Short lived fame, but fantastic nonetheless. Today I’m sharing a couple things you can find at ROMP and a hunt gift for the Fame & Fortune Hunt. Heads up, I’m featuring an item with adult poses along with singles and couples cuddles.

Sometimes with the right clothes, we can feel like one of the stars we so admire. For the Fame & Fortune Hunt, ~*Moolala*~ Continue reading

Crystallize with .Moon Amore. [Bentbox] [The Plastik] and Miwa x.Nomore.

We ❤ RP will be closing soon to get ready for the next round.  I, as always, always find lots of neat things each month and had to share a few finds with you.  Although this look lacks wings, it still plays with my Faerie nature of wonder and magic. Continue reading

In My Bones

In My Bones

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Radioactive Imagine Dragons
~~~~~~~~~~

Every month, the designers at We ❤ RP astound me with their creativity and craftsmanship. I have a few favorite designers but this fair/market is a wonderful assembly of talented creators that I love to discover. Several pieces from this outfit are from this round of We ❤ RP. Most are current or past We ❤ RP contributors. It’s such an amazing gathering of talent that there just is not enough room in one blog to praise them all; so I will just have to highlight a few. 🙂

I will confess that the first item I bought from this month’s fair was…ehem… the owl/cat/gryphon you see sitting on my shoulder. In fact, I bought two color versions because they are simply too adorable to pass up and I may have to buy another one. These cute blended creatures are animated and come with both a wearable shoulder pet AND a rezzable version. Fair warning, you will not be able to quit cooing over their animations.

My shirt/romper/thing (what would you call it? o.o) is a lovely piece by Azuchi. It comes with several sizes including fitted for some mesh bodies e.g. Maitreya and Belleza. The textures on this piece are exquisite and realistic; the material looks just like leather. I am looking forward to seeing what else I can find from them. Only issue I had was some of my thigh peek through when I move from the fabric not lining up with my alpha slices, but nothing too revealing or noticeable. I’m sure with a small shape mod it would be fixed on my end.

Wings have always been fun for me to play with because one of my roleplay characters is half Fae. Any wings I find that are unique become a must have and Material Squirrel designed a set that appeals to my darker side. A light colored set is also available. The wings are mesh, come with a color change hud, and a hud that allows the user to change size, movement on/off, movement speed, and to hide them. I love that I can make them hide upon landing and the durability. They are not flexy wings. They are not flimsy wings. These wings exude power and strength only achieved through hard work and lots of flying. Well done Material Squirrel.

Lastly, I would like to mention the boots which are a past We ❤ RP item made by Moon Elixir. You see only the tops of them in the image, but trust me (or check my flickr image here) these boots are kick ass. Thigh high, laced up, and with the option of tassels, these boots are rock solid and perfect for any adventure one may embark on. As always with Moon Elixir, these boots come with a Hud with lots of color and metal options for the smaller pieces. With lots of color choices, you’re sure to find a pair you’ll love.

One more week of this month’s We ❤ RP. Grab the deals while you can.

Call Me…

This post is inspired by the tragedy of the shooting at Umpqua Community College on October 1st and the heroics of those who strove to stop it. I also drew inspiration from the Norse legends that those who die honorably are brought to Asgard and Valhalla in the arms of a Valkyrie. I feel that all those killed in this tragic manner ought to be remembered for the good they did and hoped for in this world rather than the terrible way their lives ended. In these pictures I take on the form of a Valkyrie swooping down to Earth for the souls of the honorably fallen. Despite our differences, we are all human. This event brought much sadness yet again into the world. My thoughts go out to the UCC community.
