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.

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.

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! 🙂

Looking for a Breath of Life

Today I needed to spread my wings and take a stroll with a bit of magic. I’ve been following the blogging elf’s blog and decided to check out the quaint Shire as she suggested. I was not disappointed.  Grass covered, rolling hills, and cute homes for rent create a tranquil sanctuary.

We ❤ RP has fantastic items as always and I wanted to share more of the goodies from the current round that I’m wearing. I already blogged about the lovely hair Navi by Pr!tty, so this post is focused on the corset, capris legs, and deer skin tattoo.

First up, the Vampy Corset Bodysuit is really well made and detailed. I love that it’s broken up into three pieces to allow the wearer to find the best fit possible with the given sizes. This is perfect for those of us that like to show off our curves. A Hud comes with the corset that allows the wearer to change the metal parts color for easy outfit coordination.

The Capri Legs were a surprising find for me. I’ve not been drawn to faun type things before but they looked fun and I’m a curious cat, so why not? There are several color versions and the legs come with a Hud as well to change between silver or gold metal. Only modification I had to make was less leg muscle to fit within the metal band

Oh Deer.. by [the Skinnery] is a delightful tattoo that blends well and looks just like a young doe’s coat. Paired with the right accessories, this tattoo could make for some nice cat spots too in my opinion.  Deer, faun, cat; whatever the case, I love the detailing of this tattoo which covers the face, arms, chest, and legs. Included with the system layer tattoo are appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink Physique, and LeLutka Mesh Head.
