She Gazed with a Loving Beauty

Twisted Hunt Pic_007

Fall is officially and as many of you know, it is my favorite season. I love the cooler temps, the changing colors on the leaves, everything pumpkin spice, and Halloween! I also really connect with the idea of the life cycle and what this time represents in that cycle. It’s a reminder that all things end but there is still beauty in that ending. Speaking of endings, the Twisted Hunt is fast coming to a close but I wanted to share a little from the hunt which ends September 30.

Twisted Hunt Pic_008

My friend Myst at Mishmash Fusion is a merchant for the Twisted Hunt and is shop #42 on the hunt path. For this round, she’s made a gorgeous set of outfits for both females and males to wear inspired by the Victorian Goth hunt theme. Ladies can find themselves twirling about in this vision of red and black top/skirt set that together fits like a dress. On the back of the top is a lovely corset lace detail that tastefully shows a bit of skin that I just love. The textures on this outfit, called Remy’s Song, look great especially with advanced lighting on. Sizes included are classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and fitted models for Maitreya, both Slinks, Belleza bodies, both Tonics, and TMP bodies. Men will find a dashing suit in red and black that comes in classic standard mesh sizes XL-XS and a pair of black shoes to complete the look. The stripes running down the Knives’ Suit are nice and sharp and will have any man feeling tall. Other color variations of both outfits are available in the gacha machines as well as other goodies.

I also wanted to share a new item from Dictatorshop. The Driftwood Swing is a lovely addition to any yard and functions both as landscaping and a cozy spot for cuddles and more. Currently it is being sold exclusively at The Cosmopolitan Event which runs from now until October 7. While at the event, you can get this incredible piece 20% off in either Adult or PG only versions (Adult version includes the PG version). What I love about this set is that the animations are all great as I expect but also that the singles poses can be changed independently from the other person sitting with you. There’s so many choices I have no doubt you will love it like I do. In the menu for the Adult version, there are all of the PG poses as well as a fully loaded adult menu with both Vanilla and BDSM options. For more info on this set, see it inworld at the shop or check out Dee’s blog post here. Get it at the event while you can!

Twisted Hunt Pic_009

A few other things of note, I’ve changed the logo for the blog and I’d like to give a huge shoutout/thank you to my friend Myst Cobalt for designing it for me. ūüôā I also want to remind you all that Cart Sale is coming up October 11 and it is a special round. Cart Sale is celebrating 10 years! There will be gifts, there will be gachas, and there will be lots of great deals! I will be covering the event so stay tuned!

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.

Crazy_012

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! ūüôā

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 Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

Boardwalk_010

Another gorgeous day here! I hope you all are enjoying the sun and staying cool. Today I want to share more great finds from the Cart Sale to use while you try to cool off in the heat wave that is upon us.

Boardwalk_006

Like I mentioned in my last blog post, I am excited for different summer adventures but this weekend got to be a little too hot! So I decided I needed to find a good way to cool off and well, the best way to do that is around water. One of the other items I found from =EC Designs= at the Cart Sale is this awesome raft. Built from sturdy lumber and decked out with comfy pillows and a blanket to lay on while you sunbathe, this raft is perfect for floating down the stream or hanging out on the lake. A raft can hold two singles, or a couple and has animations for singles for females and males as well as couple poses. Poses are adjustable so you can find just the right spot to cuddle your honey or get just the right amount of water on your toes.

Boardwalk_002

From Mishmash Fusion I am showing you a few different versions of the Xanadu Trikini. I invited a few friends over to chill with me and we turned it into a swimsuit party on a couple of my new rafts. First up, my lovely friend Cara is wearing the Blue Paisley version of the Trikini for Slink Physique. Miri is wearing a special hunt edition in red on the Maitreya Lara body. Find this lovely piece until the hunt ends this Friday (though Myst told me she may leave it out longer). I am wearing the Blue Transparent version on my Maitreya Lara body. Sizes included for all versions are Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, eBody, Standard Large, and Standard Small. General fit seems nice on the Slink Physique body but there is minor clipping on the tummy and hips of the Maitreya when moving. This is in part due to shape, different ao movements, and the way the original mesh creator built the mesh. Please try a demo to be sure of what you are going to see before purchasing. The transparent versions are very transparent and do show all bits so wear with caution! Or tempt that eye candy with it. ūüėČ

That is all for now! I hope to have another post up soon with a few more things to share but don’t wait! Go check out the Cart Sale now while everything is at bargain prices.

By the Beautiful Sea

by the Sea_001

Hello lovelies! It has been a beautiful week here for me. At last, the sun is shining and it appears that summer is here to stay so I am enjoying a bit of the outdoor scene before the weather changes its mind. With new adventures coming my way, I decided I needed a few new things to stay comfy while traipsing about the grid.

The Cart Sale started up again June 21 and will run through July 5. Every item is only 10 lindens. Yes, you read that right. Only 10 lindens! So what do the merchants have in store for us? Lots of new clothes (female, male, and kids), furniture, and decor for outdoors are for sale for the event.

One of my first summer adventures was sailing out on the sea. I secured a boat, got it out on some water, then readied myself for a bright day out along the coast. My outfit is from {Ezmerelda’s} and is an omega applier look. The hat matches and has a resizer script so you can be sure to get the purrfect fit. Both outfit and hat can be found with matching slink nails at the Cart Sale. Remember, omega appliers work with many mesh bodies!

by the Sea_002

After my seafaring adventure, I decided I needed some time in the backyard. I had purchased some pink wildflowers from Crys Secret Garden and wanted to get them planted as soon as possible. I also picked up a cute tent that is nice and shady for having cake and iced tea in the afternoon. Since I was just going to be at home, I decided to wear my new hot pants from Roped Passion and new top from The Little Bat. The hot pants comes in five standard mesh sizes and fitted mesh models for Belleza Venus and Isis, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, and TMP bodies. Different colors come with different words emblazoned on the booty. And well, purple has always been my color. The top comes with a HUD with twelve color options to match any outfit and includes five standard mesh sizes, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, and TMP sizes. I had no issues with fit with either piece on my Maitreya body but always try a demo!

One of my friends helped me plant the flowers and set up the tent, so naturally I had to get cake for us to reward ourselves for our hard day’s work. Each cake from Dark Knight Decor comes in a version to dispense a cake slice and decor only version. I pulled out my new Deck Set from =EC Designs= to relax under the tent and eat our cake. This set has a small table, chair, and lounger in teak wood that is nice and sturdy for any type of weather. Both the chair and lounger come scripted with single female and male animations that should suit anyone’s taste. We both relaxed with our cake for the afternoon and admired the wildflowers.

Oh and for the guys, if you were wondering about my buddy’s shorts, those are at the Cart Sale too. These shorts are from The Dark Fae and are designed for several of the popular male mesh bodies; sizes included fitted mesh models for Slink,¬†Aesthetic,¬†Adam, Signature, and Belleza’s Jake mesh bodies. Corvi has not only included sizing for all of these bodies, she’s made two versions, Loose and Tight, for each color so the fellas can find the perfect look and fit. Don’t miss out on these shorts while they are at bargain price!

That is all I have for you today but more is on the way! Enjoy some sun and new styles this weekend down at the Cart Sale and I will see you again soon. ūüôā

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.

Hey everyone! Fantasy Faire has been running for the past week or so and will be closing soon. ¬†I have been stuck in university research land but I was able to get into Fantasy Faire to grab a few things. ¬†The exciting news is that Mishmash Fusion is in Fantasy Faire for the first time and has so much to choose from! So, naturally, I had to share something. ūüôā

One of my favorite new pieces from Mishmash Fusion is Chained Orient. This dress is perfect for roleplaying in an asian inspired sim…Well, certain parts of town. Ladies, even if you don’t roleplay, you will have your S.O. drooling as you strut around or bend down in this sexy number. I am wearing Tai in this picture and the blue stands out beautifully against the dark red, brown, and gold of the hall. Chained Orient comes in sizes fitted for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus; eBody, and a size for standard fitmesh. Six color options are available to pick from in exquisite reds, purples, blue, and neutrals. Be sure to check it out and all the other gorgeous new pieces Myst made for Fantasy Faire!
