Pumpkins, Anyone?

They leave me in charge of getting a pumpkin, and I don’t even like Halloween! I thought someone would come with me to help, but, nooooo….they’re all too busy. I liked the little pumpkins, all round and cute and most importantly, not heavy. But, they wanted a big one…..I think the term was, ‘a behemoth of a pumpkin’! I guess they think I’m Superman or something, otherwise how is said ‘behemoth’ going to get loaded into the truck? It ain’t walking there itself! It’s not that this one is immensely heavy, heck I’ve grown pumpkins bigger than this one, but what makes carrying them hard is their lack of handles! Please…someone…anyone…..develop a pumpkin with a handle, I may not approve of GMO, but I’ll let that go, if only for a handle! 😀

There’s a couple things in that story that are completely factual. I don’t really like Halloween, I just don’t get it. I don’t approve of GMO, in any instance, and yes…I have grown a few jumbo pumpkins. They were big enough that I had to get a tarp under each one and have 3 people carry them one at a time. Nowhere near record breaking but I was happy with them. This one isn’t light, I know that for a fact, but I love this whole scene! Le Poppycock has made the incredible pose/prop set ‘Oh My Gourd’ exclusively for the Men Only Hunt 10, which runs until October 28. You’re looking for a moustache somewhere in the lobby area of the main store, and for no cost you will receive this gifty! The gift includes the pumpkin, of course, a pose, plus a nice cluster of pumpkins. The pumpkins are all wearable, so you don’t need to rezz anything to create the perfect pumpkin scene!

I’ve surrounded myself with lots of pumpkins here. The ones in the pile behind me are from the ‘Fall Punkin v2’ set from [QE] Designs and available at Mad Circus 3 and Trick or Treat Lane. They’re a new release and there’s four shapes in the set with each pumpkin having 8 colours to choose from via drop down menu, plus they’re scripted for easy resizing.

The ‘Scarecrow’ is a new VIP gift from {what next}. The VIP group has a one time 250L fee to join, but it’s well worth it with regular gifts, plus previous gifts out to grab, too.

The ‘hay bales’ and ‘hay bale w/blanket’ are both from hive. The ‘hay bales’ are decor only but the hay ‘bale w/blanket’ have four sitting animations. The ‘Outhouse’ is also from hive, it’s a one seater and comes in so handy when nature calls!

The ‘Jar of Fireflies’ and the ‘Grunge Barrel Seat’ are both from .::THOR::., and from separate gachas. I can never resist playing the gachas when at the .::THOR::. main store…..I always win, no matter what I get!

The grasses, power poles and windmill are all from [we’re CLOSED].

The ‘Fall Pumpkins & Flowers Toolbox’ and the Sunflower Garden Gacha Table’ are both from gachas from Bee Designs. There’s a great selection of fall and Halloween gachas upstairs, if you’re in need of great seasonal decor.

The ‘Shipping Container’ is from a previous round of Deco[c]rate from 7 Emporium.

The ‘Fresh Eggs’ sign is from floorplan.

And as for my outfit, you ask? Well, I started with the ‘Jessie’ hair and snapback from the ‘Snapback Gacha’ from BesomxFLite! I was so excited to see this gacha at the Besom main store. I’d given up on ever finding it, then a miracle happened! 🙂

The loose and comfortable ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ from !APHORISM! are perfect for a little bit of work.

The ‘Tech Sweater’ is a new release from [Vale Koer] and available at the October round of Kustom9.

I scored the RARE ‘Unisex Boots w/socks’ from NOeditioN. They’re HUD driven with lots of colour options including a socks on/off toggle button. They’re at the new round of The Epiphany.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which won’t be available til November…but I’m special and got a preview! Thanks, Stephanie. 🙂 It’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

You Just Never Know What You'll See!

Have you ever wondered what goes on outside overnight? I don’t know about anyone else, but once it’s dark outside, there could be any number of things going on out there! Usually things that I’d rather not know about, like an ax murderer, aliens, or worst of all….ghosts! But, I had the bright idea a year or so ago to get a trail cam to set up in the yard to capture anything that might be wandering through. My one fear is that I’ll see something that I’d rather not know about, but so far…so good! There’s usually a deer or two, a skunk or three, or a coyote. Oh….and the odd stray cat, and sometimes a raccoon or a bunny. The coyotes are the ones I hate to see, they’ve become so brave in around the yard that it’s a little disconcerting to see them casually walk around. A couple evenings ago I stepped out onto my step and came face to face with one about 30 feet from me. He didn’t run or get scared, he just stood and stared at me. I have no doubt he was on his way to see if there was a chicken out to steal, so I tried to scare him into running away, but he just loped off a little bit and then stood looking at me again. There are guns on the premises, but I really hate guns, so needless to say the worst I could do was tell him to Eff off and try to look scary, which some people would say comes naturally to me! 😛 This morning it was a whole new ball game though……there on the camera, was a big old horse…just wandering around in the dark( I don’t have horses at the moment), and behind it….following along was a little horse! I knew whose they were once the little one showed itself, so it was just a matter of waiting for daylight and scouting around so I could tell the neighbour where he could find them. They had moved on up the field to the north and were heading east when I found them. So, if the scariest thing I capture on the camera is a little bit of wildlife or a farm animal or two…that’s fine…it’s those 2 legged monsters I really don’t want to see out there, skulking around in the dark!

There’s something in my front yard here that I’d be really shocked to see! The ‘Wicked Legs’ from {MYNX} are exclusive to the October round of The Chapter Four and add a really nice touch to your Halloween decorating! They’re 100% original mesh and they’re copy/modify so you can adjust the thigh shadows to where you need them. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month!

October is full of Halloween events and goings on, and [QE] Designs is in a couple of them with some seasonal decor! I’m showing the ‘Wire Punkin Set’ here, which includes 4 styles of wire pumpkins and lots of options! They’re colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the pumpkin, 4 stem colours and 5 light colours. These are exclusive to the Mad Circus 3 Halloween & Gacha Fair, which runs until October 31. Also from [QE] Designs is the ‘Fall Punkin Set v2’, which includes 4 shapes with 8 colours each via drop down menu. They’re copy/mod so you can cover your whole yard in pumpkins if you want! These are available at Trick or Treat Lane, which opens today and runs until November 3, as well as Mad Circus 3.

Another event for October to be on the lookout for is Season of the Witch! It starts tomorrow(October 14) and runs until November 4, and Raindale has the ‘Charfell Cabin’ exclusive to the event. This cute cabin has a footprint of 10X15 and a land impact of 40, and it’s modifiable to be resized as needed. It comes on a platform(23X23 footprint and 8 land impact) which is HUD driven with 5 grass textures, and it can be removed if needed! I’m using it here! The cabin is scripted with the Kool Door system so you can limit access. This cabin has a really unique roof line and some great accents, so if you want to get a full view you can check out Keira’s flickr site!

I’ve used the chairs from ‘Kate’s Vintage Chairs’ from Nutmeg, which is a set of six chairs, all with really unique shapes and detailing.

The ‘Deathly Tree, orange lights’ is from Refuge and available now at Salem. It’s in a gothic style stone urn with two ravens standing at it’s base. The lights can be set to blink or to stay on.

You can’t see them well, but I’ve added the ‘Black Baby Birds’ from +Half-Deer+ on the step of the cabin. These are cute little black chicks that come with various groupings and also singles, plus some wearable ones too! These are also at Salem.

I’m using grasses from Raindale and Kidd Grass here.

Don't Believe Me

Don’t believe me when I say I’m OK, it’s probably not true! OK can mean many things and sometimes I just don’t want to face the fact that I’m not OK. I may be struggling with life, but it doesn’t mean I’ll never be better, it just means that at this moment in time I’m not happy. And it’s not the end of the world to not be happy for a time, it’s not like my life isn’t good, it is, it’s just that right now, I’m down. I will pick myself back up, I’ll smile again and enjoy the cool autumn air, the warm sun, and the beauty of life. But today, I have a little black cloud over me.

Sometimes I feel better just by saying that! But now, I’ll get to what I’m here for! First off, I have to apologize to Emms of [QE] Designs for not getting this posted earlier. I was full of good intentions but real life got in the way. The ‘Deema Halter Top, darks’ and ‘Dina Denim Mini Skirt, Skully’ were at an event that has now ended, but I’m sure you’ll find them at the main store as soon as possible. The new [QE] Designs main store is all ready for shoppers so go have a look around, I do know that today there’s a sale on different versions of this top and mini, so you’ll want to make sure to pick them up! Both are SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh body compatible, HUD driven, and the top has 15 colours with the top and strings colour change separately and the mini has 20 colours to choose from. I love the vibrant colours and the very nice detailing on these!!

I was playing the new round of PocketGacha and was incredibly lucky to get the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ from Reign. For anyone who hasn’t heard about this incredibly easy event, check this out and find out more! It will completely change the way you think about a gacha event! So, Reign has released the ‘Cat Lady Started Kit’ for this, and all of the cute cat themed items are must haves! I LOVE chocolate and cappuccino, so I know I’ll be slurping the bottom of the cup in no time at all! Chocolate high, here I come!

This tousled hair is ‘Suzy’ from [monso].

It all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I added the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ beverage with it’s bento animation to a pose from the ‘The Paula Series’ set of poses from an lar [poses].

I’m at ‘Mother Road‘ for this picture. It’s a great place to hang out and take some pictures.

Thoughts & Feelings

regrets of what wasn’t…. hope for a better day…. grief for loved ones gone…. longing for what was…. dreams of future love…. embracing who I am…. rid myself of hate…. joy in the little things…. inspired by the people in my life…. fear of what might be…. powerless in this world we live…. accepting of my own limitations…. thankful for everything I have…. bored with current events…. melancholy for something I’ve never had…. trusting everything will be OK…. fascinated by nature…. despair for our society…. free myself from bitterness…. finding peace within…. passionate for feeling alive….

All of that and I only sat there for 15 minutes! 😀 Such is my mind, it never stops completely and rarely rests.

I find that autumn affects me like no other season, yea, summer is a happy time and winter can be kind of depressing, but only autumn can make me feel ten emotions all in the space of 30 seconds. I don’t know what it is, but I find I can go from blissful to utter desolation all in the time it takes to blink an eye. I don’t mind, really, it’s feeling alive and in tune with the world. And who can complain about that?

Ok, enough said…lets get on with why I’m here. First, I’m wearing the ‘Daddy’s Baby Girl’ top and panties from [QE] Designs. The set is super cute and feminine and makes me feel young and sweet! The panties and top come with solid and sheer versions and the fatpack has 18 solids and patterns plus five bonus textures.

The ‘The Countess’ eyeglasses are from Earthstones, I think they make me look smarter. 😀

The Boys and Girls 76 hair is from Dura Hair, this is from the darks pack.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This comfy and relaxing sitting pose is from the ‘Curvaceous’ set of poses from oOo Studio Poses.

I’m sitting in the ‘Yesteryears Vintage Chair’ from Zen Creations.

The ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie is in the background. The amazing animations and quality design make it a must have.

The houseplants are all from {what next]. I think houseplants really create an intimate atmosphere and bring life to a room.

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.
