Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls Hey peeps! Linden Labs has made it so the SL Home and Garden Expo has a few more days! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re missing out on a great way to contribute to Relay For Life. As I stated in my previous post, there are creators with items up for grabs that contribute either 100% sale donations or 50% sale donations to RFL. In addition there is an auction and many creators have decorated homes to compete for the most donations to RFL. One of the homes I visited is on the water and named the Beach Cabin. House No. 11 is a cozy little home with a small living area, spacious foyer and bedroom upstairs, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area perfect for enjoying a view of the water. The dock also offers easy access to moor a boat. Come take a look at the wonderful work Alec Rogue has done on his build and donate some linden if you can to his donation kiosk. Every linden donated is a vote for their home and 100% go to RFL!
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Happy exploring. ♥

I Found Solace in the Strangest Place Way in the Back of My Mind

I Found Solace in the Strangest Place Way in the Back of My Mind

Looking back on the past 12 or so months, I have been battling demons and dealing with some of the toughest health issues of my life. Four ER trips, a two-month stint in the hospital following major surgery, and multiple traumas that no one should have to go through made up the majority of my 2019. Every year has its ups and downs, but seldom have I felt close to breaking. I felt betrayed by my body. Unable to get through my day without sheer exhaustion from struggling to function.

And yet…I’ve pulled through the darkness. I’ve climbed over that terrifying mountain and made it to the other side, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. While I’ve beaten the hardest part of this past year, the road ahead won’t be easy as I heal, strengthen, and grow as a person both mentally and physically. Thankfully, I won’t be alone on my journey. My family, friends, and partner have all been behind me, supporting and cheering me on each step of the way in my recovery. While I’ve never doubted their support, I admit to doubting myself at times. I’m only human.

With the dawn of a new year and a new decade, I hope to find renewed strength and love for myself. 2019 knocked me down but 2020 is already showing promise if I continue to move forward. As always, I’m not going to give in. Not going to fall. I’m still breathing. ♥

You Charge Me Up Like Electricity

You Charge Me Up Like Electricity

When we think of the future, our minds often picture flying cars, holograms, hover boards, and traveling to other planets. Some of our more creative thoughts bring to mind light sabers, aliens, healing chambers, and robots with AI so believable they could be mistaken for a human. Science fiction literature, video games, TV shows, and film bring these visions to life in ways that are awe inspiring. If you’re a lover of the genre, the Sci-fi Con is for you and is only open for a couple more days. I am sharing a few pieces that =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion have at the RFL event.

You Charge Me Up Like Electricity

Mishmash Fusion has new dresses for Sci-fi Con that will have you ready to go clubbing or feeling like a galactic princess. The dress I’m wearing is called Nyota and it is the Purple Pulsar color. Without advanced lighting on, it is a nice black dress. Turn on advanced lighting and you get a sexy electrifying number that will hypnotize any onlookers. Sizes included for this dress fit Altamura Sofia, eBody Classic and Curvy, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus; Slink Physique and Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies. This specific color is a 100% donation dress which means all sales go to RFL. If you like hunting, the gown my friend is wearing is one of the hunt items Mishmash Fusion is offering. Don’t worry, a gift for guys is included as well! The Elation Gown in Infected is a fun color changing gown that slowly shifts and moves at the same time. Sizes for this futuristic style come fitted for eBody, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus; Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara mesh bodies. A Standard mesh size is also included. Find this beauty and steal the show at your next party.

You Charge Me Up Like Electricity

If you are looking for some furniture for your space station, =EC Designs= has just what you need. The Group Seating set in Hex is perfect for the tech fans with its neon lighting around the edges. You’ll find a sectional couch that seats three people and the stool will seat one person. Other seating included are loveseats with and without cushions and a corner chair. Each seat comes equipped with animations for both female and male avatars no matter where you sit. Loveseats and the Sectional sofa have PG couples animations. With all of these options, you can find the perfect arrangement of seating for any home. Also from =EC Designs= is their Orbits Gacha which feature mini planets in different blinking colors that orbit around you! Be the center of your own solar system by adding these little funky planets to your outfit; as a bonus they reflect light off clothes with materials like the Nyota dress really well.

The Sci-fi Con ends May 26th and some of these items are event exclusives, so hurry and check them out before they’re gone! Links to the event are below. 🙂

And All I Can Taste is This Moment

And All I Can Taste is This Moment

Fantasy Faire recently opened and as always, each sim showcases such spectacular and jaw-dropping creativity by both the sim builders and merchants who participate in this special Relay for Life charity event. Each themed sim is sponsored and lovingly designed by different SecondLife creators with care and attention to detail. If you have never been to Fantasy Faire before, you are missing out on artistry and talent. Today I will be sharing a couple items from =EC Designs= and Mishmash Fusion that are being sold with 100% of sales being donated to Relay for Life in this event.

Mishmash Fusion has created several outfits in many colors that are all set as 100% donation items at Fantasy Faire. A few of these colors are exclusive to the event. Today I am wearing Rena’s Outfit in Fantasy, which is the event exclusive color. Rena’s Outfit is a smexy leafy look for all of the faery looking for something light and airy. Each one comes with vine wraps for arms and legs, a skirt, and two different top options. Sizes included for this outfit are for Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus; Slink Hourglass and Physique, Tonic Curvy and Fine, eBody and eBody Curvy, and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies. Grab this pretty and feel magical while you get up to faery hijinks!

And All I Can Taste is This Moment

From =EC Designs= I have the Cuddle Pod. A delightfully whimsical pear-ish shaped pod hangs from some trees but can be unlinked and hung wherever you like. Put it in your garden and create a snuggly space that is magical and cozy for all walks of life. There are many pose options for singles, both female and male, and several pages of couples poses. Whether you enjoy a fantasy theme or more traditional approach to your landscaping, this piece will add a touch of magic and charm to your garden or home.

You will find both of these items up for sale at 50% off as donation items at Fantasy Faire in the same booth on the Tensors’ Flying Market sim built and sponsored by Rivendale. After the event ends on May 5th, they will be in the mainstore for full price. Get them now and see what else these creators have in store for you to help support RFL!

When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain

When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain Hello again! I know it’s been a little longer than I expected since my last post but real life decided to bless me with a spring cold. I am doing better now and have some cute finds from the Cart Sale for you to see. A quick note; the Cart Sale now allows merchants to sell six items for 10 lindens, six items for 25 lindens, and one item for 50 lindens. Now on to the goodies! When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain

One of the first goodies I’ve found at the Cart Sale was a very cute dress from Mishmash Fusion. The Someday Minidress comes in a selection of six colors, each for 25 lindens. Sizes included fit Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus, and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies. This cute dress has a lovely lace skirt overlay and small suspenders straps that add just a touch of quirk. If you look closely, I am wearing a tattoo with ravens by Innerjoy Love Tattoo. There are many beautiful and colorful tattoos for sale but I love ravens of the Worthy Life tattoo in black ink which comes in Maitreya and omega appliers and includes standard tattoo layers.

If you’re looking to add some spring joy to your home and garden, you will find a nice selection of flowers and other decorations at the Cart Sale. In front of the windows I’ve placed some climbing roses from the Home Store. With the scent of roses in the air, the promise of new life creates a warm atmosphere. A small jug from Dark Knight Décor makes a nice vase for freshly cut flowers as a centerpiece on my new table. Dark Knight Décor also made my breakfast tray which has yummy coffee and bagels fresh from the kitchen. If coffee is not your beverage of choice, you might try =EC Designs= lovely little Spring Tea Set with their acorn teapot and tea cups. You can find the table at the SL Home & Garden Expo along with a decorative shelf that is also up for sale from Dictatorshop. On the floor I’ve spread some candles and flowers I found from LpOca. Along with these flowers, LpOca has many other flower arrangements including a window planter and some pitchers used as vases. Lastly, I picked up a cute chair from Kitty Creations that has a lovely velvet softness to it. You can change the texture between three colors and the chair fits nicely in small corners for both single sitters or a couple of avatars.

That is all I have for today, be sure to look around the Cart Sale and pick up the goodies before it’s too late!

Everybody’s Comin’, Leave Your Body at the Door

Everybody's Comin', Leave Your Body at the Door

Hello monsters and ghouls! There is a new event called Trick or Treat that started October 21st and I am excited to share it with you all! If you like gachas and Halloween, this is an event for you; play for free and play all the gachas like normal or you can buy the VIP Hud which will give you a grand prize once you’ve played each gacha until you collect all prizes. No gacha item is repeated so there is no worries about duplicate items. Find more info on how it all works and landmarks here. Now on to some previews!

I’m still trying to figure out my costume for Halloween so I picked up a few things to mix and match with. At The Little Bat, the Grand Prize is a set of Monochrome Leggings that have several different patterns for the top section to pick from. This set comes in an omega applier. Commons include other leggings variations and mesh nails fitted for Maitreya and Slink hands.

My top is from Squishy Fluff and is one of several of the Treat tops with words on it. It comes fitted for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Kemono, and Ruth2 mesh bodies. Collect all ten tops and get comfy for the house or out and about. Squishy Fluff also has trick prizes that include raisin dresses and Pumpkin Spice Lax.

To complete my look, I picked up a necklace from Astara. They have both good and bad witch crystal necklaces so play until you get one you prefer. Cubic Cherry made cute horns, eyes, and a mask for the grand prize. The horns seemed to match my look for this evening the most and nestle perfectly in my hair. Lastly, I couldn’t forget my Frankenbucket with candy and my gummy worm to keep me energized for partying all night long.

Everybody's Comin', Leave Your Body at the Door

Look out for more previews soon and have fun Trick or Treating!
