I Feel Your Whisper Across the Sea

Pergola Time_001

“Hey, wake up sleepyhead.” She nudges the snoring figure stretched out across a well padded lounge chair. A mumble from the dark haired man responds with a slight adjustment of his head resting on his arms as she continues to nudge his shoulders. Her hands begin softly rubbing over his shoulders, her quiet humming accompanied by distant bird calls.

After a few moments, his eyes flicker open as he stirs, waking up but pretending to slumber still as he listens to her hum a soft song. It was a rare treat to catch her humming, and he cherished every second. Suddenly, a finger jabbed into his back, making him jump up and grunt in surprise. “Ugggh… why you gotta wake me up like that, babe?” Shifting his body around, he sat up on the lounger, swiftly wrapped his arms around her and pulled her against his chest, making her squeal and laugh as he playfully jabbed her back with his finger.

Pergola Time_002

“You were already awake! I could tell when you stopped snoring.” She grinned up at him. As his arms move to hold her close, she reaches up to pull his head down for a soft kiss. His arms tighten around her for a moment, a smile on his lips as she pulls away, hand still holding his head.

Tucking a loose strand of hair behind her ear, he chuckles, “Nothing gets past you, does it?”


The Cart Sale is still going strong, with less than a week left to grab the awesome deals with most items at 10L. I shared a few things in my previous post and I’m back to share a couple more things you can find there right now.

Battle fairy currently has a wonderful selection of summery dresses and sandal heels also set for sale at the Cart Sale. I’m wearing it on my Maitreya Lara mesh body with no clipping that I could see. For me it’s a perfect casual beachy look or a little dressed up for a date night. It comes in mesh models fitted for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, and Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. Grab all five dresses before it’s too late.

My nails were done by Nail It Good! with their “it’s May” polish. This polish set comes in six fun patterns on one Hud which includes appliers for Slink, Omega, Maitreya, and Belleza nails for both hands and feet. Add some sparkle to your look before heading out this summer with this set.

Pergola Time_005

The finishing touch for my beachy look today was a necklace made by Captivating! There are six cute beaded necklaces for sale that will have you dreaming of the tropics and getting sand in your toes. Any of these necklaces would look nice with a strapless dress or swimwear.

From =EC Designs=, I have a cute pergola setup that includes a lounger that is animated for singles and couples. Sit with your friend and hang out, or cuddle up with your partner to relax in the sun. There are even massages if you feel like pampering your partner a bit. The set is easy to just set out and poses are adjustable. Whether you are vacationing at your beach house or need a relaxing cuddle spot in your yard, this set is too cute to pass up.

That is all for now but I will have one more post up before the event ends. Don’t delay though, go get these amazing deals before the event is over!

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. 🙂

I’d Howl at Your Beauty Like a Dog in Heat

tantra chair_002

Lately life has taken me on some twists and turns, some good and some quite painful. Opportunities presented themselves. I took the plunge. Did I land on my feet? Yes. And no.

I could spin a tale about finding love…then losing it. I could write about the heartache and sadness, the pain and emptiness. But you’ve felt it, feel it, know the taste of it in your mouth and the hollowness in your chest where a strange ache never truly dies.

Gradually the pain fades when you’re not paying attention; you hardly notice because you’re so busy trying to distract yourself from the pain. How long has it been since you could breathe freely? When did your smile stop feeling forced? Brief moments of reprieve are then cut short when you remember the pain; it all comes flooding back again. Did it hurt this bad the first time? Is it maybe a little less? How do you know when you’ve healed?

I’ve been reflecting on some of the people that have come into my life recently, how I’ve spent my time with them, my words, my actions and what they’ve said and done. Recent pain has forced me to take a step back to look at what paths lay before me. Should I take the path over here that most would object to? Or do I take the route more often traveled? Do I dare tread on the one my heart is drawn to? Mistakes and lessons lie behind me but I stand at a crossroads again, not ready to make a choice just yet. Not ready to take another step until my feet are planted more firmly on the ground.

tantra chair_008

For now I work on grounding myself again, building the foundation of my soul until it can withstand any storm. One day I will be myself again. In time I’ll forget the sting. Someday I’ll smile, blow a kiss, and be on my way, flowing like water onto the next path of my journey.


I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life tends to take hold just as I get my groove back. Today I am sharing a piece from February that Dictatorshop released that I was in love with from first glance. I honestly think every woman ought to have a tantra chair in her home. The curving slope is so sensual and elegant and to me it just seems perfect for lounging. Many of the single sits are perfect for staging a surprise for your significant other too. Plenty of cuddles are included for relaxing snuggles. With plenty of adult options, you’ll not be wanting for anything except to relax after a pleasant evening of funtimes.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Other things to note about the Tantra Chair are that you can change the textures via the Dictatorshop logo on the back. You are also able to control access to the menu via the logo as well. Go check out the demo at the inworld store and see why you need to add this piece to your collection. 🙂

The outfit I am wearing is from a gacha from Mishmash Fusion that was created for the Twisted Hunt event in March. I have not checked to see if it is still available to play in the shop but you may be able to find someone in the Twisted Hunt chat who might trade items with you.

Finally, I will be posting again soon, I promise. The Cart Sale begins tonight at midnight and runs through May 16th. Keep your eyes peeled for more coming soon!

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_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!

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.

Some Kind of Madness is Swallowing Me Whole

Crazy_001

I apologize for my absence! A combination of real life and a bit of a down mood has kept me from posting this when I originally received the items that are featured today. Read on for what’s been floating through my mind.

We all know that there are many things that drive us crazy. Rude customers or co-workers at work. Too slow drivers or traffic on our daily commutes. Finding presents left by the dog or cat for the 100th time on the carpet. Even something simple as the sound some people make when eating can set a person’s teeth on edge. But there are very few things, in my opinion at least, that can drive us to true madness. One of those things… is love.

Crazy_005

For very few people, the search seems easy, almost like an arrow just pointing them in the right direction. But for most people, the search is rough, almost brutal at times. We look for signs to say, “Hey, turn here, open this door” or “Turn back now, wrong turn” to show us where we are supposed to be headed and with who. And if that wasn’t enough, our search can be for many different types of love. Even if we prefer to be alone, most of us seek companionship of some kind whether with family, friendship, a lover or a pet. The search for love, that special kind of love that comes from another person we want to spend the rest of our lives with…that love can bring us to a madness like no other.

I may be a bit of a hopeless romantic. I know it’s in everything I do, everything I say. As I’ve embarked on my quest for love, I’ve hit a few potholes, skinned my knees a few times, and leaped off a cliff without really being sure of what was at the bottom of the water. Love truly can be blind and that is usually what causes most of the hardship we end up experiencing when things go wrong. As Sigmund Freud said, “We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.” First love is always so innocent…nothing quite like it and the heartbreak we face when we realize the other person is not 100% perfect and not a good fit feels earth shattering for some.

Crazy_009

Well… Freud also said, “One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” Although we lament all the hardship our hearts endure, they are strong and able to go through a lot of rough handling. It sucks, but eventually you get better at finding the right turns and all that hard work is worth it; the pain of the past lingers but not so strongly that you’re unable to find happiness again…

My main point? It’s a lot of what I’ve been talking about already. Don’t give up. Keep trudging along the rough paths, scraping your knees, and taking a tumble or two; just remember to pick yourself up and continue to move forward. Find your love whether that is a person, a cat or dog, or a group of friends who have your back. Don’t let madness swallow you.

Today I am sharing the Chesterfield Sofa, Chair and Stool. Both were at the Home Show 2017 but due to my mood and RL I was late to blog them. They are now at the mainstore and on Marketplace along with matching Bondage Benches. Personally, I love this set even more than the Contempo set that I have blogged about earlier this year. I think this is probably due to the detailing of the back cushions. Nonetheless, this set brings you all of your favorite smooth poses in the adult versions of each piece or the PG versions you can purchase if you don’t want the racy aspects.

Animations included in these pieces are as usual, superbly smooth and plentiful. Both leather and metals can be changed via the logo on the back of each piece and you can change the security of the menus as well. Poses are easy to adjust and swap for all your naughty needs. Dictatorshop has once again created sophisticated and elegant furniture that anyone would be happy to have in their home.

Until next time lovelies! 🙂
