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.

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

Down in the Underground: The Black or White Hunt

Hello my lovelies! I hope your new year is off to a good start. New Years always brings about the reminder that we can change and we have choices. Choices that have much power to influence our future. (I’ve been drawn to the Dark Side hehe) Fi’s latest hunt is the Black or White Hunt which offers two hunt paths to choose from. Black is difficult while white is easy. All shops have two gifts set out, one for each path, but they ARE NOT the same gift or recolored versions of the same thing. So what will it be? Black or White? You’re welcome to do both paths of course and why not? The gifts are amazing and I’m going to share a bit about what you can find. FYI hunt links and info below the pictures. 

At Mishmash Fusion, the black gift offers an outfit for women and men. They are so well done as always that I’m dragging my husband to get the men’s as soon as I can. The top for the women’s look is a jacket/top combo so there’s no worries about side boob if you’re wearing a mesh body like I am. Myst, your textures are amazing as always! 😀

My lovely little black dress is from Get Frocked’s black path. Fit was Purrfect and the look? Sexy. You could easily wear this for a date night or make it casual with some leggings.

The lovely Fiona of Fi’s Creations made a darling little dress. Layered sweetly with a cute bow on the waist, you will be doing twirls in this mini dress like I was! Pair it with the right heels to make this a great statement outfit.

My gray dress with the side slit actually came in two versions. The other dress that is included with this one is essentially the same but it is covered in the same pattern as the faux belt on this one. An included leaf necklace with a color change hud completes this look. It’s a touch provocative with just enough class to keep it balanced. I personally cannot wait to see what else Faerietale Designs has to offer in future hunts. (Please Faerie!!!!)

Euphoria Couture is the designer of the last outfit I’m sharing in this post. I was a little worried about the high waisted pants looking odd on me but damn, they make my legs look awesome! This is a great outfit for the working lady on the go. It’s classy and fashionable without feeling stiff. Bonus points for making the zebra print look amazing!

Lastly, the gazebo I’ve been taking all these photos in is the white hunt path gift from =EC Designs=. *waves to Cara and Jaxx* I love it you two! It’s a heavenly piece to sit and think or have a quiet cuddle with a loved one while watching the water. The arched columns are beautifully crafted to surround the pool and its benches. Go find it!!

Happy hunting everyone. And remember there’s two paths to try. Good luck! 🙂

And the Stars Look Very Different Today

Bowie Tribute Picture_001

A week ago, one of my idols left this world for the next. The next morning text I had received from a friend late Sunday night was one of comfort but it was also how I found out the sad news about David Bowie’s death. I was both shocked and yet not.

Here was a man who lived every moment creating art in everything he did. Music, film, and a fashion icon, David Bowie has always been an inspiration through his constant innovation. My first exposure to his work was when I was four years old and I watched Labyrinth in which he starred as Jareth, the Goblin King. I was entranced. Ever after his music has inspired and moved me in ways no other artist could. His passing is loss to the world but he lives on through his work. 

To honor the Starman, everyone has held a tribute of their own. In SL there’s been tribute concerts and events held in his memory. I’m no DJ. I’m not a host. I’m not a designer. But I am a fan who desires to remember this legend in only the ways she can. Listening to his music and writing a short blog post.

Fallen Gods has set up a vendor of David Bowie skins, gestures and sound bits, and his iconic lightening bolt makeup for free. Not sure how long this will be up so grab them while you can.

On a side note, We ❤ RP still has their December round out if you want the gown from my last post. Fi’s Hunts the Black or White Hunt has begun and I will be blogging hunt gifties soon.

She’s a Flame: Autumn’s at Uber

As I’ve said before, Autumn or fall is my favorite season. I took a look through Uber a few days ago and saw a few things that sparked my interest due to this month’s theme.

First off the hair was something I saw in another blog by Deebles called Like butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth. Once I saw the picture, I had to grab the hair. I just love little foxes and the hat on this hair by TRUTH is darling. Besides the various hair colors, Foxy comes with an accessory hud that enables the user to switch between multiple colors of the fox hat. Additionally, if you find yourself to be a bit more well endowed in the bust department, there’s two included versions for bustier ladies. Duplicate versions without the hat are also included.

My loving sl husband came with me while I was shopping and he saw me drooling over this sweater by erratic with the Eiffel Tower on the front in a cute knit pattern. So he bought it for me. :3 So shoutout to him for spoiling me. ❤ I absolutely love how well made it is and the fit is purrfect! Please note, this top is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara body. There’s a nice variety of colors and prints to choose from if La Tour d’Eiffel is not your thing.

The knit leggings by .miss chelsea. I’m wearing look really nice and detailed. A variety of colors and patterns inspired by the season are available; you can buy them separately, in basic packs of four color/patterns, or all of them in the fatpack. Included are fits for many of the main mesh body types such as Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, Slink, and the TMP body. What I didn’t realize but found to be ingenious is that the pants come with an alpha hud that lets you hide a few different lengths of the pant leg. Very helpful for wearing boots.

I’m not normally the type of person to buy skins, but I took a gamble and tried the Glam Affair demos for the skins at Uber. They looked really pretty and the price really is a bargain for all the options each skin comes with. The one I ended up getting is Caroline – Exotic. One skin comes with multiple brow and makeup options. The plus for Maitreya loving ladies is that we don’t need appliers (unless you’re using slink hands/feet that is).

After such a shopping excursion I had to sit down. One place I can’t seem to explore enough is the City of Serenity, owned by a few builder friends I know. Their bright city has a few shops, a bar, a shooting range, ballroom, and lots more. Come explore when you can after you check out this month’s Uber. 🙂

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.

I Feel Pr!tty…

I wanted to post something earlier but I got busy packing for a trip so I’m writing on the go. I just had to share a great find on hair. Thank the stars for hotel wifi and Flickr uploads!

One of my favorite Secondlife shopping events is We ❤ RP. It’s an incredible almost month long event that is basically a fantasy/medievalish market. Everything is top notch quality design and geared toward those who roleplay. Although I will admit I buy the pretty Arcadia gowns  just to feel like a princess, I always find several other items I can’t pass up. From gowns to armor, hair and skin, furniture and poses; this fair has it all. Even Jian’s goats.

So, hair… I’ve found the cuuuuutest hair at We ❤ RP made by Pr!tty. Navi is a gorgeous long hair draped over one shoulder with a  woven firefly branch headpiece which adds the perfect touch of whimsy. (Bonus: The headpiece comes in two styles which can be worn with other hair!) At 25% off while at the fair, this hair is a steal and a must-have. I also have to gush over the shoes I found by Pure Poison. I’m a mom in SL and currently carrying baby #4 (Yes, I enjoy role playing being pregnant and having babies with my Lycan hubby) so I’m constantly on the lookout for cute flat shoes. Made for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TheMeshProject feet, these sandals elegantly wrap up your calves without feeling the least bit bulky.
