I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a plot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here, we’ll just say life seems to take its own path when you think you have it figured out. Truth be told, I’d likely still be procrastinating about a blog post were it not for the fact someone very special decided to get into blogging, and asked me to help. So before I get into much more, check out Spike’s new blog here at Spikedwithfashion. He’ll be covering mens fashion in SL, and I can’t wait to see how his blog grows!

First, I want to say how sad I am that this will be the only joint blog of ours with Swag Bag items in it. While I understand the stresses of getting mens items for a monthly subscription, it was very disheartening to hear its run its course. As an avid shopper, this is a plea to all mens designers out there, PLEASE start making more available. There is the want, there is the market….the men of Second Life deserve great things too.

Second, I have learned today not to toss out old gacha you think you will never use…case in point, boxing gear….by the way if anyone needs backpacks or sports tops, let me know.

Now, all those fun things about me have changed, and I know I need to do an update, but here’s the quick rundown… Vista Bento hands, Catwa Catya Bento head, Maitreya Lara body, Dee Talez skin because ❤

Spike’s items are here

What I’m wearing:

Hair: Truth VIP February gift (get in that group!!)

Outfit: Khoi + Rep epiphany gacha @ Represent

Socks: Izzie’s tube socks

Shoes: Reign/Flite Tayler’s

I’ll keep you up

I need her so bad,
Sometimes I feel like I can taste it
This evil romance
So good I never wanna waste it
I can’t trust my friends
‘Cause she’s what everybody chases
I know where she’s been
‘Cause it’s on everybody’s faces

So the week has been busy, and I am currently in the midst of that post Epiphany high where how much I spent during early access to the event hasn’t quite hit me yet…..it will be followed closely by the “damnit I missed that one!!” I also did a bit of a damnit I missed that one on a blog post too. Took the photo, had everything organized….then my graphics card and win 10 updated….and firestorm decided it no longer liked my graphics card, or maybe it’s jealous of my house…but it keeps crashing every time I try to be home. Thankfully it seems to like the rest of my sim, so I’ll just camp out there (not like I actually do much in my house… that may be another blog for another day..Bella’s non used house)

Anyhow, because of the whole thing, you are getting not one, but two photos and things to buy, and likely seeing more parts of me than normal in my posts (don’t worry, all the pixels that will have people gasping are covered)So without further ramblings…. get ready to go shopping

The week started off with goodies from The Forest and blogger packs from Marvelous Monthly.  I believe you can still get a key to the Forest (1000L group fee) and there are all sorts of amazing items waiting for you ! (including fatpacks of DeeTalz skin!!!!) Marvelous Monthly is still going strong, and we’ll just say I’m “fashionably ” late to the party? Both are events you’ll want to check out. The Livian bodysuit comes with a hud giving you a variety of transparent colors, and appliers for all bodies including system layers.

What I’m wearing:

Exile:: Wicked Games

Pose: BoS Tude ~ Marvelous Monthly

Romp has been missing in my life. Anyone who has been to my sim will undoubtedly found some of the elegantly kink items in my previous trips to the event, and their event this month is one not to miss. It even gave me a chance to wear those pointe slink feet!  Anachron’s Pointe Foot Trainers are a very lovely set of footwear that I think I will be finding excuses to wear….please note, you NEED slink pointe feet to wear them. I also have to mention the pose, because it is one of three very unique poses from Hopscotch. The human lamp includes RLV and 6 different poses for your sub, giving you a more enticing object to look at than just your ordinary lamp.

 

What I’m wearing:

Pumec ~Lucia Catwa (body appliers included) ~ FREE GIFT

S&P Ryan pink ~ Romp

S&P Diamond Pasties ~Gacha Guardians item

Anachron – Pointe Foot Trainers ~Romp

Wow, it seems like forever since I blogged!

My virtual life decided to go and get busy, and sadly this got ignored. But..my 1/4 section of paradise is finished now, and life (with the exception of random adventures) should be back to my normal.

I’ve realized something in my 6 years on the grid…we who live in Second Life love Halloween. So many events, so many gifts, it’s kind of mind blowing, and we’re only half way through!

Today Pastel Goth opens for our shopping pleasure, and I have been loving the preview of Petite Mort’s selections for the event. Ok, I am totally biased as I do love her clothing…but these tops and skirts are the perfect thing to keep you stylish this Halloween season.

And of course my nails are styling with the fantastic Maitreya nails from Dark Passions available at The Nightmare

Baby why don’t you stay

Baby why don't you stay

Why don’t you stay? I’m down on my knees
I’m so tired of being lonely, don’t I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go, there is one thing you should know
We don’t have to live this way, baby, why don’t you stay? 

Maybe it’s a bit of where the photo was taken, the tone, and maybe a bit of life mingled in, but the song seemed to fit. That secret tryst you know shouldn’t happen but does anyhow,the sweet euphoria of the forbidden, the let down you know that’s coming…

and you’re left standing there wondering if it was worth it.

It seems like every event is on one of two themes lately, mermaids, or Alice in wonderland. Now don’t get me wrong, chasing white rabbits, having some jealous queen yell at me and knowing it’s better down where it’s wetter sounds like one hell of a Vegas vacation…but..please…my ADD cannot handle any more of the same!

I am needing to make a folder just for wonderland…no, it won’t actually get filled, I’m sure something else will grab my attention before I put three things in it.

And in keeping with the title of this blog, it’s gonna get rambley… you see the other part of my brain is in Nashville doing something totally amazeballs for a week ( I MISS YOU JAY!!!!) so while I’ve been wandering thru the new events, I’ve been mindful to you know grab a few gacha items for her… yes, I know she’s only gone a week and the events will still be on, but you see it’s the principle of the thing. I know she would be there first day and getting those things, so it’s kinda like my duty to do that for her while she’s gone… that, and well she wakes up before me…so this is like the first time EVER that I get to give her a folder with all the awesome gacha goodies…feels kinda good.

Now, I am sure most of you are getting ready to head to Wayward Carnival, it starts really soon. I had the luck of being there yesterday, and while the stores have some fantastic things to buy… I’m gonna say the sim stole the spotlight. It is beautiful. I plan on heading there to take pictures after the insanity of shoppers passes.

The Kawaii Project also opened today, and well.. as I have had this rare wonderland tea set for a while (like week? yep forgot where I got it from too!) and have been wanting to use it.. I figured it couldn’t hurt to play a few gacha there…luck was with me and I got the items I wanted without going broke!

If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin’,
I’m gonna tell you all what my heart’s been a-dyin’ to be sayin’.
Just like a ghost, you’ve been a-hauntin’ my dreams,

Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

Ok so it took me a day longer to get back into the groove of posting again. House hunting, decorating, and all that other fun stuff had to happen yesterday. But… today… lots of time!

There is a new gacha event called Bring out Your Dead that opened this weekend and goes till July 18, and MOEKO is one of the sponsors!!

Seeing as how it is an event themed around dead… I knew the perfect spot to head.  Ironwood Hills is that awesome post apocalyptic sim perfect for taking pictures and exploring… and one I know I’ll be back to for funky photo shoots. You should go check it out.

My dress and heels are both gacha prizes, 14 colors too…. and the heels are damn hot

spooky

Somewhere Sunny and 75

https://www.flickr.com/photos/130666158@N03/18219159053/in/dateposted-public/

You and me on a beach chair
Yeah, I’m so there every time I look in your eyes
Kissing you and the salt air
I can taste it, I swear
Take me somewhere sunny and 75

The perk of having a 1/4 sim is the ability to create amazing places for pictures. While I’m not as skilled at landscaping as I would like to be, I am pretty pleased with how the Oasis flows….and I have made some awesome photo spots. Including the hotel from Iconic’s gaha…I wanted the soda machine… finally got it after the rare…and it was way too cute NOT to set up… so there is now a beach hotel on the beach !

The cute sundress I have on is Kraves new release and it can be bought at Kowai Kawaii. I loved the hud choices on this dress, and it is perfect for those sunny summer days. And…because I love them both, I’m wearing Reigns $75l shoes and the group gift from Spellbound.

It could be a sweet dream …

Sweet Dream..

Every night I rush to my bed
With hopes that maybe I’ll get a chance to see you
When I close my eyes I’m going out of my head
Lost in a fairytale, can you hold my hands and be my guide?

You know those dreams you never want to wake up from? I’ve had a few in my life, and while the hands on experience is so amazing..those dreams are an acceptable second when it’s all you have.

Alice in Sexyland opened this weekend, and has some of the grids favorite sexy stores creating their own version of the well known childrens classic.

Dark Passions has a few outfits for the event, and I will likely be posting another one later, this dress however, caught my eye, and I couldn’t take it off!  The detail, the shading.. it’s perfect…and even better? It’s on sale at the event for 20% off.  So are the nails which are of course amazing ❤

But, I will warn you, don’t be like that white rabbit and be late, because her sale is only on till the end of the event.

My eyes have changed! I know likely not that big of a deal to most, but… I had to share because they are beautiful, and at Kowai Kawaii. Operate has nine colors available, and I am really impressed with how they look in my head.

Last but not least… you all know it’s Sunday, and if you haven’t done it by now…get your butt to Reign for her Saturday Sale shoes…this weeks are a classic peep toe style that will look great with anything.

Immortal fear
That voice so clear
Through broken walls
That scream I hear

So this is one of those mega posts with one heck of a lot in it…but everything just flowed so nicely together that the hardest part of it all was deciding where to take the pic.

I finally decided on  Everwinter Post Apocalyptic Theme Park  as it is one very amazing and spooky place to explore.

I’m very lucky to blog for some cool places and events, and one event is getting close to opening day! Kowai Kawaii will be opening it’s doors on June 13…and I have a sneak preview from Secret Love of their ultra rare gacha tentacle horns. There is a whole set, bracelet,earrings, necklace and horns, with 3 colors plus the ultra rare black. Who doesn’t like a lil tentacle in their life ?

The skin is from 7 Deadly s{k}ins, and is the woman’s June gift, complete with freckles.

My dress is one of thirteen colors and is the new release from {MOEKO} The detail in the one I have on is fantastic, lace overlay, the ribbons up the back…

And last but certainly not least… check out the nails!  They are Dark Passions prize in The Witchy Hour Hunt. The hunt run till the 30th of June and the prizes look great….and just to help out.. here’s the hints for both slink and maitreya nails:

Prize A – Slink Version:
Look for the great white tree. Your Prize Hangs in the branches
Prize B – Maitreya Version:
Start the climb to the great tower and look above each doorway.
