Heavenly

Heavenly

I really want this in my real life. A cute little corner all fixed up with everything I need to be completely at peace. I know exactly where I’d put it too! There’s a little spot in the pasture, on the south side of a poplar bluff that looks out over the prairie. The trees are starting to turn a bright yellow and the smell of dry grass and sage is in the air. The sky is that pale blue that only fall brings and the light breeze has a nip to it, but with this facing south I don’t feel the north west wind. I’ve finished my cup of coffee, and as I lay my book down beside me, having gotten sleepy from the warm sun shining on me, I see nothing but red through my closed eyelids. The sky is filled with migrating birds most of the day and into the night as the crows, geese, and cranes are all on the move, by the hundreds, heading for warmer climes. There was frost last night and soon there’ll be colder nights and eventually snow. But today, I rest peacefully letting all thoughts of my physical being go and enjoy this very second, for it’s the only thing that matters!

The ‘Wooden Signs’ from {MYNX} are rustic and woodsy and say pretty much everything that needs to be said! I chose the ‘Love’, ‘But first, Coffee’, ‘And so the adventure begins’, and the ‘I want to rock your gypsy soul’ signs to keep me grounded in life and to keep all the heavy stuff from clogging up my mind. These signs are available starting today at the September round of Limit 8, starting at 5 PM SLT. If Limit 8 is new to you, you can check out the website.

I wanted to have a little place where I could go to escape the world, yes…..even the virtual one, so I set up ‘The Old Shed, SUPER RARE’ from ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set from ..::THOR::... This gacha set is it’s part of the September round of PocketGacha, so there’s no need to leave your home to play. If PocketGacha is new to you, visit their website and find out more, I know you’ll want to get that HUD and start playing! I’m showing most of ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set here, including the ‘DIY Bed, RARE’, ‘The Fishbowl’, ‘The Coffee Cup’, ‘The Vintage Nightstand’, ‘The Vintage Radio’, ‘The Flying Leaves’, ‘The Stacked Blankets’, ‘The Old Fender’, and ‘The Broken Bicycle’. The bicycle and the fender both come with two versions, one for ground and one for the wall, to make it nice and versatile when decorating. I love the casual and rustic designs from ..::THOR::.., the intricate detailing and unique look are perfect additions to my SL home!

I love the soft and natural looking grasses from Raindale! This is the ‘dry’ version of the ‘Meadow Grass’.

The ‘Norway Maple’ and the ‘Wild Oak’ trees are from The Little Branch, along with the ‘Wild Grass Dry’ which is included with the ‘Wild Oak’ tree pack.

Meet Kenny!

Meet Kenny!

Hi there…I’d like you to meet my new boyfriend, Kenny! He’s perfect for me, he doesn’t say much, he’s not critical of me in any way, and I can deflate him at any time and shove him under the couch! The bad part about Kenny is that he doesn’t help pay the rent, he’s not very attractive, and he has the personality of a beach ball. I’m going to be keeping him around, though. Since I don’t have any Second Life men in my life, Kenny is going to be my model for any couples poses I may be inspired by. It’s not easy being a blogger with no man available to help out with couples poses, and there’s times that the pose makers I blog for have really nice poses that I’d like to use. A couples pose just isn’t the same without two people! It’s not like I want to do poses with explicit sex, just friendly or intimate poses that inspire me. So, I’ll just throw out an idea here, if any of the guys want to take Kenny’s place at some point and help me out with a couples pose, I’d love to chat about it. I don’t think Kenny is going to be very good at showing any emotion, but beggars can’t be choosers! 😀

First off, {MYNX} has a new release in the main store, the Bermuda Shorts come in six colours and are fitted for the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies. These fit perfectly and the nicely textured denim is perfect for late summer fun! So kick off those sandals and let the water cool your feet.

The inaugural round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I will admit that the stress free gacha fair is a huge hit! I could relax at home while playing the gachas of some of my favourite stores. Vale Koer has the ‘Preppy Set’ exclusive to PocketGacha and although I wanted the RARE sneakers haven’t managed to get them yet! I did get the ‘Preppy Top, RARE’ though! You can find out more about PocketGacha here. If you’re a member of the Vale Koer group, you received the PocketGacha HUD through the group notices.

The ‘Ruda’ hair from [monso] is one of my favourites!

The ‘Palm Tree Mini Tattoo’ is from IGOTIT and available at Knot&co.. Cute!

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

I’m using a pose from the ‘Fruit Juice’ pose sets from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four, which runs until the end of the month.

And Kenny? Oh…poor poor Kenny! With the stupid grin he’s wearing you’d think I’m grabbing his butt, but really I’m not! ‘Kenny’ is one of the ‘Plastic Boyfriends’ from Cureless and available at Collabor88.

Behind us is the ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie and some house plants from {what next}, along with the ‘Filmore Factory Clock’ from 7 Emporium, on the far right of the picture.

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.

A Few of My Favourite Things!

A Few of My Favourite Things!

Since I seem to be lacking a brain pattern that can put multiple thoughts together, I thought a nice random list of things might pad the word count of this blog post! 😛 Here are a few of my favourite things, in no specific order!!

coffee, dogs, a rainy day, the first crocus of spring, my truck, gardening, a cozy house on a cold night, cows, making jam & jelly, Stephen King books, the smell of pine trees in the morning, new pens, pencils, and paper, playing cribbage, songs that move me, a freshly made bed, sewing, coffee, old movies, going on drives with no destination, the smell of rain on soil, sitting under a shade tree, Eddie Vedder’s music & lyrics, going bra-less, good times in Second Life, dust hanging in the air during fall harvest, coffee, good friends, great quotes, colouring, popcorn, my favourite coffee mug, baking(pies especially), cats, wading in spring puddles, watching eggs hatch, coffee!

And now, on with the information you’ve actually wanted to read!! I’ll start with a new release from {MYNX}! There’s ten Graphics Tees to choose from, this is the Polka, which I just adore, the colour combination is one of my favourites! The Tees are compatible with the major mesh bodies and have gorgeous curves!! You can find them at the {MYNX} main store or on Market Place!

The February round of Enchantment runs until the end of the month, and Le Poppycock has an incredible gacha set, as always! It’s called ‘Dream a Little’ and it contains super cute pose props with such unique poses! There’s two styles of balustrades in each pose prop and here I’m using the ‘Perhaps Someday’ pose. One of the great things about pose props from Le Poppycock is that the props are worn, so no need to rezz! The theme for this round of Enchantment is ‘Cinderella’ and Le Poppycock also has a hunt gift available.

The Sandy Saddle Shoes are one of my favourites from Slipper Originals. These flats are so cute and are perfect for the upcoming spring weather! They’re compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and TMP flat feet and the fatpack contains 16 colours and 5 metals to mix and match! You can find them on Market Place here!

The Aletta Photo Necklace is a new release from RealEvil Industries and is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan! It’s super simple to add a photo of your favourite someone and it’s also easily resizable. It’s HUD driven with lots of metal colours and also has options for glass tint! It’s not a close up, so you’re left wondering who’s photo I have in it!! 🙂

The Cuffed Corduroy pants in cocoa are from paper arrow co. They fit perfectly and go with anything!

The HARUKA hair in classy brown is from Argrace! I love when the breeze lifts my hair and cools my skin!

I’m wearing one of the nine options from the Harvest Shadows pack from Veechi! This is one of my favourite sets, with all the lovely earthy colours!

As always, I have the Alex mesh head from Logo on with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins! I also have on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Bento mesh hands from Vista Animations, and the flat feet from SLink.
