Living Outside the Box

Living Outside the Box

Why just think outside the box when you can live outside of it? Life is too short to put things off, so be wild, be free, and be yourself! No one can do that better than you!

It’s a stormy Friday evening here in my world, so I’m typing fast to try to get this written before the power goes out, like it did last night! So, lets get going, shall we!

First off, Indie Teepee starts today and KraftWork has the intricately detailed and fabulous ‘Not a Box Stage’, perfect for any kind of entertainment you may want to host. It’s HUD driven with lots of colours to light it up any way you like! The 2017 edition of Indie Teepee promises lots of music, arts, entertainment, plus the always popular retail areas for your shopping enjoyment! Every day is a full schedule of live music and DJ’s on multiple stages throughout the three areas, custom built by some of the best builders in Second Life. You can stay up to date by following the Indie Teepee Facebook page, it runs until August 6.

The Secret Affair is on and Le Poppycock has the ‘Indiscretion’ pose/prop gacha set exclusive to the event. The set consists of 10 poses with a chair for a prop and five poses without. All of the poses are sexy, seductive, and just a little bit naughty! The Secret Affair runs until July 29.

The ‘Shirley’ Lingerie set in red is a stunning set perfect for your boudoir photos. It’s a three piece set, plus appliers for the stockings in three colours from Big Beautiful Dolls Lingerie. The set is compatible with the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies and is available now at Shiny Shabby.

I know this photo does nothing to show any kind of detail of anything I’m wearing, it’s not the shot I was intending when I put this outfit together, but I just adapted and let it go where it wanted. So, I’m showing a very glowy and far away shot of the lovely ‘Dannika’ Pumps from Slipper Originals. The shoes fit the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza high feet and the fatpack contains 16 colours, five metals and five areas to customize. Sorry for the long shot Elle, I’ll make it up to you soon. 😀

My hair is ‘WAKANA’ from Argrace.

As always I’ve applied the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada to the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

Meet Me at Greasy’s Diner

Meet Me at Greasy's Diner

He said he’d meet me at this diner and we’d have a ‘nice’ meal! I’m not sure what he thinks ‘nice’ is, but for me this ain’t it! It’s not often I make a date, and it’s times like this that I know why. I don’t enjoy it, meeting someone and making small talk and then trying to appear comfortable and interested, when all I want to do is go home and read my book with a hot cup of tea. It’s not like I get what I expect to get, I’ve gone into many dates with an open mind and high hopes, but they’re usually dashed when he either talks about himself the whole time or he bashes his last girlfriend, endlessly. And this is not starting well, he’s late and if he thinks the ‘Greasy Diner’ is a nice meal then I pretty much know the outcome of this. I want to text him and tell him to shove his ‘nice meal’ and I’ll go on about my day, but I’m not that kind of person. I’ll give him a chance to at least be later than this before I pull the plug. I mean, I was only going to bath the dog and then make a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie. Not terribly important, I know, but I cherish my time alone, no matter how much of it I have. I’ll give him 15 more minutes, then I’m outa here! I have to admit I don’t like standing out here waiting, getting stared at by passersby! I guess I can look busy with my phone, do some major corporate take overs and save the world, because that’s what any true woman would do when wearing her cupcake bra! 😀

Author’s Note: This story is a work of fiction, no one was late for the date, I don’t date at all, and I’m sure Greasy’s Diner is a fine establishment to dine at. You’ll find it at aloha Beach, if you’re interested in trying it out!

Alrighty then, on with the show. A new round of Tres Chic is open for business and LEGAL INSANITY is there with the Sunny Bras and Sunny Sporty Shorts. They both come in lots of colours, and if you splurge on the fatpack there’s a whole bunch of exclusive patches for the bra. The cupcake is one of them. You can mix and match the colours of the straps, metal, and the fishnet part of the bra, as well. The shorts also have extra colours in the FP, and the waist band and trim can be changed independently from the actual shorts. They’re both SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh body compatible. So cute!

Imitation has a new pose/prop set out, and now you can look at your phone and be p*****d off! Or just take a few pictures of yourself to send to your friends, enemies, loved ones, or just random people! I think I’ll send a picture of myself to the dude who’s late, show him how happy I am right now(not) and show him what he’s missing!! The ‘Selfie, Bento’ pose set comes with five poses along with the phone, which attaches to the left hand. You’ll find it on Market Place and the Imitation main store.

I made the plunge and got in on the Powder Pack, Catwa subscription box for the July round! I’ve not looked at it all yet, but I love the ‘Moka Eye Shadow’ from Izzie’s.

While you’re looking at the phone you might want to zoom in and take a gander at the French Ready 2 manicure from Hello Dave. It’s free for anyone and everyone at the Hello Dave main store. The first ‘French Ready’ set of nails is also available free of charge. They’re compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega nails.

The ‘NO PRESSURE’ hair is from NO.MATCH.

The ‘Selene Ribbon Choker, white’ is from Violent Seduction.

The lovely ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone is from Avada and applied to the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

Throw Your Arms Around Me

Throw Your Arms Around Me

I will come for you at night time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go running along your street
I will squeeze the life out of you
You will make me laugh and make me cry
We will never forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky
We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me

I dreamed of you at night time
And I watched you in your sleep
I met you in high places
I touched your head and touched your feet
So if you disappear out of view
You know, I will never say goodbye
Though I try to forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky

We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me
Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

This song gives me goosebumps.

I hope you enjoyed the musical interlude, we will now get down to business.

First off, one of my favourite events is starting a new round tomorrow (July 18) and {MYNX} is there! The Limit8 event is one that I make sure to get to early, cuz if you don’t the limited items that each designer has released exclusively for it will be gone! {MYNX} has the “‘Aviator Sunglasses’ exclusive for the event, they’re available in gold,(seen here), silver, and rose gold. They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re beautiful.

U L T R A opened yesterday, and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Summer Meltdown’ festival poses! I’m using one from the “A” pack. These poses are all a lot of fun, you’ll be having a blast at the outdoor concerts and festivals this summer! There’s two packs to get, with each one containing nine poses plus a small amount of a controlled substance. Enjoy 😀

I can’t believe how fast July has gone! We’re already into the third week, and as the time passes the events come to a close, unfortunately. But, there’s still a couple days remaining for Summerfest’17, and C’est la vie has the ‘Febe Tankini’ exclusive to the event. Since I was planning on going to Hazardous for the photos, I figured I wouldn’t be swimming, so I’m just wearing the ‘tank’ part of the tankini. 🙂 I chose the ‘army’ version of this suit, with each colour option of the top, it comes with a bottom, which is HUD driven with an 8 colours selection. You have until July 20 to get it Sumerfest’17, but after that I would think it will be at the C’est la vie main store.

I know it’s a surprise for everyone that I didn’t pair a tank with a pair of shorts. I really wanted to, but I’ve done that way to many times already this summer, so I settled on a the ‘Dina Corduroy Mini Skirt’ from [QE] Designs. It’s a short, snug, and totally sexy mini perfect for dancing at the concert. It’s HUD driven with ten colours and fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

One of my favourite hair so far this summer is the ‘Hani’ hair from [monso]. This is from the blacks pack.

And again, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my second home for this picture, Hazardous.

Great Ideas

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. 😀 Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! 😀 These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. 😀 They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. 😀 RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. 😀 So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

I’m Not!

I'm Not

I’m not a woman who is only a shell, like a cheap chocolate Easter bunny that has exquisite decorations on the outside but nothing on the inside! I’m made up of a multitude of layers all leading to a core that’s like an intricate galaxy of emotions, yearnings, disappointments, joys, experiences, love, and grief! I’m not a woman who gives herself freely, but when I choose to, I give it willingly and completely! I want to be understood and accepted for all that I am. I’m not perfect, but rather perfect imperfection! I’m not a simple story that can be enjoyed and understood by needing to only read the last chapter! I’m like a novel that has twists and turns throughout, and with every turn there’s another surprise waiting to be found! I may not have it all, but I’m all that I can be! And really, it is enough!

I’m really and truly honoured to have Legal Insanity join my family of featured designers! I’m looking forward to being challenged with the multitude of styles that they create since I tend to get stuck in a rut sometimes with the same look, lately it’s been a tank top and shorts! So today’s post is a lot different from that!! I started with the Candy Heels, which are exclusive to the Kink(Y) Event, which runs until July 19. They’re SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible and are available in 15 separate options or the fatpack! These sky high heels give me totally ‘Hot Legs’! And as Rod Stewart would say ‘You got legs right up to your neck’!!

I really think that ‘Kasumi, sheer’ from R2 Fashion is something to behold! The shiny see through parts with the added top and under little bitty things to cover up my private parts is a statement in itself! The thong back just adds to the package! Be prepared to be noticed! 😀

The ‘KOMA’ hair from the blacks pack is perfect for me! I love short hair and Argrace has some of the best!

As always I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

I’ve combined a pose prop with a pose, both from Le Poppycock, for this post! The pose is from the ‘Lost Inhibitions’ A pose set and the stool is from the ‘Sitting Pretty’ pose prop gacha set!
