Every Second Counts ’cause There’s No Second Try

Every Second Counts 'cause There's No Second Try

Saying goodbye to the past. Took my last look. Never turning back.

Leaves falling, slowly turning darker, drier, more brittle with each passing day. Ground crumbling beneath our feet. Announcing a change running its course. You can’t see the end. It blends in with the horizon, farther than you can see. Further than me.

Each step takes me closer. To the Dark. To the Light. Will you join me on this path? Or leave me to find my way? As I chase the Dream, you hesitate, scared to take the Leap.


This is my last post for this round of the Cart Sale. There is still so much to see so I highly recommend taking a look before the event ends on September 5th. All links listed below the credits.

If you’re looking for knits to start adding to your fall wardrobe, JellyRoll has you covered with their Hello Autumn dresses. I paired the one in Pine with some of my Blueberry jeans because it can be a bit brisk outside in the morning. Three fall colors are available, each for 10L. Sizes included are five standard mesh models and fitted models for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, and TMP mesh bodies. Some clipping may occur with some poses and pants depending on fit. You should have no trouble if you wear it as a dress though.

Also at the Cart Sale are some vegetables to plant in your garden. I have a fondness for pumpkins, so i could not resist picking up the ones from B’s 25! to prepare for fall. Get the Circle Garden set which gives you the option of a fully planted plot, an empty plot, and all the vegies on their own to make your garden the stuff of your dreams. This is perfect for landscaping or having some fall fun with your family.

Lastly, if you are planning to garden, pick up the beautifully crafted Garden Cart from Dictatorshop to help move your plants about the yard. Three versions are available at the Dictatorshop mainstore: PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. While not brand new, this piece is great for those who like a snuggle, or more, amongst nature. Menus on the PG version do not have any adult content, whereas only the Adult Kink version includes bondage content. You can change the texture of the Garden Cart by clicking the handle to match any of your outdoors tools. Check out all the details on the Dictatorshop website or try the demo in the shop.

See you all again soon and grab those 10L deals at the Cart Sale before they’re gone!

Not in the spotlight. I stray amongst the shadows in constant thought. You probably don’t even notice me, lost in my own world. Quietly slipping in and out of the light that others loudly chase. But you noticed, didn’t you?

I won’t beg for your attention. I won’t beg for your time. Wandering, observing, dancing to an unheard tune. Reveling in the breath of life. I don’t ask to be understood.

You want easy? You want quiet? On your own time and at your beck and call? I’m not the one for you. You want fun? Playful? Dare to even want naughty? It doesn’t come easy and no apology will be given.

Without you, I’ll still thrive. I won’t beg for your attention. I won’t beg for your time. There’s no other girl like me.

Okay people, we are getting down to the wire with the Cart Sale at the Wash! Only a few more days before it ends and you’ll be sad if you miss out! I’ve gathered a few more things together to show you what you can find for 10L. All links below the credits for those too eager to wait!

First up, in my first look, I am sharing the funky fun top that #hashbang! has out for sale in six fun colors. The Vaporized Top gives me an 80’s/90’s vibe with the layers and patterns on the chest. Sizes for this top include five standard mesh sizes and fitted mesh models for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, 2 Tonic, TMP, eBody, and Occasin mesh bodies. Guys will find a similar top for them in 7 different fitted mesh models for male mesh bodies and a standard classic fit. Behind me, I am using a backdrop from the Dark Fae which is also at the sale. Several colors are available and they are mod so you can resize them to suit your needs. I love the vibrant color and could not resist the purple one.

In my second look, I am wearing the Margo set from battle fairy. Five colors are available and each comes in sizes for 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The fit is good but it is short, so careful bending over ladies! While not pictured, there are matching heels up for sale too. From Dark Knight Decor you’ll find lovely flower arrangements to add some charm to your home. I’ve set out one of the Carnation vases they have at the Cart Sale on my little side table. If you’re looking for bigger arrangements or other wall decor, they have just what you need. Since this was for my bedroom, I grabbed a room divider from DigitalDreams to add a little extra privacy. Several different designs are available to choose from so you’re sure to find one to match any part of your home. They also have beautiful autumn artwork ready to adorn your walls, some of which is photography from Real Life.

Lastly I am sharing a newer release from my sponsor Dictatorshop. The Vindustria Bed was released at ROMP and comes in three versions: PG, Adult Vanilla, and Adult Kink. Each of these are sold separately but the Adult Kink version includes all of the animations you could desire. This bed has a touch of whimsy with it’s curved frame which has a curtain draped across the top. Located at the front of the bed, the Dictatorshop shop logo houses the menu for changing the texture of the bedsheets, security for who can access the menu, and the on/off option for the curtain. If you’re unfamiliar with the beautiful animation options Dictatorshop has, demos in the shop are set out for you to try. The Vindustria Bed is probably my new favorite bed on the grid. If you’re into the kinky side of life, the frame makes has perfect attachment points for bondage play. If not? Snuggle away in this sweet bed with a loved one. You can now find this bed in the Dictatorshop mainstore.

I should have one more post for you with Cart Sale goodies so keep an eye out for it! Until next time. ❤

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

Summer is slowly winding down to its end. Our lazy warm days shorten bit by bit but still we dance and play as if it will never end. Couples wander, teasing and making mischief amongst the yellowing grasses. Kisses stolen by the campfire on a cool summer’s evening. Hazy days we’ve had. Soon over and dreamt of with whimsy during the cold winter days.

In hopes of holding onto summer’s fun a bit longer, the Cart Sale opened two days ago with many merchants offering lovely 10 linden summer goodies. I will be sharing some of what you can find in my next few posts.

My first look is a cute little dress from Mishmash Fusion that you can find in three colors. The Starseed Mini is a wonderfully flirty dress. Sizes included for each dress fit 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, and eBody mesh bodies. Grab this gem and tease your favorite eye candy as you bend over to pet some cute critters or fix a shoe. My friend followed me around and had picked up the Sleeveless Shirt from Dark Water Designs at the Cart Sale as well. Several colors are up for grabs, each one coming with models for Adam, Altamura, Signature, Slink, and ExMachina male mesh bodies.

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night Another cute outfit I found is from Sweet Willows. My second look has somewhat of a nautical flavor with its dark blue top and white and blue striped skirt. This outfit is only available for Maitreya mesh bodies but there are four colors to pick from and the fit is nice. It’s casual enough not to feel overdressed going out, but cute enough that you won’t feel plain on a day date. Anyone up for some sailing? For a bit of whimsy, I added the Bottled Fairy Earrings from the Dark Fae which are also at the Cart Sale in five different colors. Each color of fairy is safely contained in a small glass bottle entwined with a bit of wire to be suspended from your ear. Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

For the guys, you can find the Kimono Shirt from Dark Water Designs in four color options. This top has sizes for the male mesh bodies Adam, Jake, Signature, and Slink. While these are not traditional kimonos, they are comfy and casual enough for any guy just hanging out.

Looking for a nice setup in your yard to hangout while it’s still warm? =EC Designs= has you set! Check out their new Campfire Logs, Campfire, and the matching Campfire Stumps in the Campfire Set. The campfire logs come with four different versions of the pillows and cute sits for females, males, and couples. While the stumps are not pictured here, the post with lantern comes in the pack with tree stumps that come in two sizes. The tree stumps have animations perfect for singles, female or male, who just want to chill by the fire on their own.

That is all I have to show you for now. Plenty of other goodies await you in the Cart Sale at the Wash so make your way now before time runs out! All links are below.

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.

Pergola Time_006

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!

Just Start Loving Me

Just Start Loving Me_001

It’s been over a week since Valentine’s day. But there’s still plenty of fluff and hearts floating around the grid you wouldn’t think the day of love had passed. If you’re looking for some new furniture that has a romantic touch, there’s a few pieces from Dictatorshop that are purrfect year-round. Have a looksy at some of my new bedroom additions. You’re sure to find something you can’t live without.

Just Start Loving Me_012

For the centerpiece of your or your loved one’s bedroom, Dictatorshop has a romantic bed at Cosmopolitan at 20% off full price through February 24th. This bed only comes in the Adult version but there are plenty of PG animations to use if that’s not your style. The stool that came in this February’s Bound Box matches the main texture of the bed. Edit: The stool’s textures can be changed between a variety of love and floral themed textures and the bed has some nice soft colors to choose from that have a spring feel. It is an adult bed, but there’s menus for singles, couples cuddles and kisses, and massage as well.

Just Start Loving Me_003

On sale at the mainstore is a fabulous addition to the Chesterfield set, the Chesterfield Ladies’ Chaise. This piece is perfect for lounging in your bedroom with a book, relaxing, or snuggling up with your fella. My favorite part of this set is that there are bento animations that are just so adorable and too perfect for words. If you love being cute and flirty or love taking photos with your love, there are lots of nice poses to choose from. Like the other pieces in the set, you can change the texture of the leather and metals through the hud in the back.

Just Start Loving Me_006

Another gem that was inspired by all of the romantic ideas of Valentine’s day was the Lip Chairs and Thrones. Choose either the PG version of the sofa or the adult version with all of the throne options in the Dicatorshop line.  Both sets include the choice of either regular lips or a mustache lips sofa. Animations included are single sits, cuddles, and dances for the PG sofa.

Just Start Loving Me_007

Whether you love Valentine’s day or just love romantic style furniture, there’s a lot to pick from this month at Dictatorshop that suits every hopeless romantic. On a special note, Dictatorshop is holding a short sale this weekend. Get 40% off giftcards through February 26th.

Sparks Fly From Her Finger Tips

nevermore_001

Hi there guys! I hope you are all well and enjoying the fall colors. I know I am. I am also enjoying the fantastic creations merchants are putting out for the season. Right now the Cart Sale is having a special event for their 10 year Anniversary sale. On top of their usual 10L sale there are also gachas! This event will be going on longer than normal to give everyone plenty of time to shop. I have some peeks at what you can find there.

nevermore_008

One of my favorite pieces this round is the gacha set from Mishmash Fusion. The Cobwebbed Dress has rich colors overlayed with spiderwebs that give it just a subtle spooky feel and the ruffle trim is nice and soft so you’ll still look cute. Each color comes in standard fitted and mesh sizes for for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus; and eBody bodies. There are no rares so be sure to play it a few times! Only 20L a pull! To match the dress, I’m wearing The Dark Fae’s Samba heels which come fitted for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet. The rare for this gacha is a fatpack will every color option.

nevermore_003

My wonderful friend Mits picked up another dress from Mishmash Fusion that is on sale, the Lillian Dress Day of the Dead in pink. This dress comes in the same sizes as the Cobwebbed Dress and is covered in sugar skulls on the skirt. You’ll find matching shoes shaped like coffins for standard, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

Both Mits and I are wearing nail polish from Koffin Nails that are on sale at the Cart Sale. They come in appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and omega. I’m wearing the special Pumpkin Spice Latte nail polish because I am a sucker for pumpkins and anything harvest-y. Check out our nails!

nevermore_009

The living room set is from =EC Designs= and is called the Hideaway Parlor Set, which is comprised of five pieces sold for 10L apiece. A chair, couch, coffee table, side table, and lamp for 50L is a fantastic bargain. The couches come in in a version with a blanket and leaf pattern on the storage baskets and a version without the blanket and a pumpkin on the basket. There are PG couples and single sits in the couch and single sits in the chairs so there are plenty of options for everyone in the family.

On the wall are pictures that come in a set inspired by Edgar Allen Poe created by *PAN*. Also included in the set is a shelf that is not shown and the Nevermore lettering on the table. The pumpkins are from a gacha by Sequel with just one rare that I found to be darling and perfect for adding a touch of Halloween without going scary. The candelabra in the corner has a menu that let’s you pick the metal texture, candle flame type, and light colors. Even when it’s not spooky season, these pieces are great for any home.

nevermore_010

Lastly I wanted to share the Crystal Skull that I have on the coffee table. Made by Dark Knight Decor, this fun rotating skull in a crystal will read your fortune when touched. Varying messages are pre-loaded into the notecard contents but it is fully customizeable so you can create your own fortunes! Or make some to scare your friends. Just remember what you put out comes back to you threefold!

That is all I have to share today but I will have more for you soon. Do not wait! Go find these goodies now!

Made My Skin a Little Bit Thicker

Boardwalk_011

A little bit of a rant or musing to start things off today followed by a special giveaway to celebrate reaching 50 blog posts! Read on to find out about the giveaway!

Lately I have been reminiscing on some of the events of the past year or so. Remembering the people that have moved in and out of my life and the lessons I have taken from them. It is incredible what an influence some people have had in such a short time while other lessons came from mistakes or taking a wrong turn. My morning has been a bit quieter than usual as I remember those lessons.

I know my last few posts have been a bit more upbeat and summery cheerful, so this post probably seems a bit less peppy. As a human, I can only be cheerful for so long before another obstacle gets thrown in my path that tries to knock me down. But you know what? I will keep fighting for the happiness I know I deserve. Maybe I need a day or two to get back into gear, but I will never stop swinging my bat at each ball that tries to strike me out. So my adventure for today took me to a baseball field in Chicago where I practiced focusing on hitting each ball out of the park and refocusing my mind on what is important. What is that you ask? Well… Me.

Boardwalk_012

Now that might sound selfish, but consider this. If you spread yourself too thin, trying to please everyone you come across, you can never be happy because you have no time for yourself and what makes you happy. This was something I’ve had to learn and really, I’m still working on it. My health and happiness are first and foremost before I can be expected to help others. I will always make time for those who are closest to me; yet I have reevaluated who those people are and adjusted my priorities accordingly to give myself the best chance of smiling every day. Life is too short. Spend it doing what you love and with the people you love.

Boardwalk_013

So, you’re probably wondering by now if i will just get to the clothes I’m wearing. Don’t fret! Today I am wearing a fun T-shirt dress from Dark Water Designs that is currently at the Cart Sale in three colors and a couple solid knit versions. Included are five standard mesh sizes and fitted models for Belleza Isis & Venus, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. I really love how this dress fits and feels a bit sporty. The small clipping on the leg is really only visible because of the pose I used. Wear it to a game or at home while getting comfy on the couch. I paired it with some of my favorite sneakers from REIGN and was set for the day. Find this dress and more at the Cart Sale before it ends July 5th!

Boardwalk_015

Now on to the giveaway that I mentioned. My sponsors =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have kindly donated a couple gift cards to help me mark the occasion of reaching 50 blog posts. The prizes are a 500L Gift Card to =EC Designs= and a 400L Gift Card for Mishmash Fusion. If you browse my blog and Flickr, you’ll see some of the items of theirs I have blogged in the past. How to enter to win? Comment below with what you enjoy doing in the summer and your secondlife username. I will be using a random name picker to select a winner who will be announced in the comments, Facebook Page, Plurk, and Twitter. Deadline to enter will be Saturday July 8th at 5:00PM SLT.

Until next time! ~ Autumn
