Life is short, and if we enjoy every moment of every day, then we will be happy no matter what happens or what changes along the way.

Apologies for not having much to say this time.. I do love having at least a paragraph here for you to read.. But I find myself a bit lost for words.. just sort of making up things as I go. Well.. I could at least freaking gush about ItGirls new body appliers and how much I have fallen back into their skin grace.. Or how I love this flipping shrug that Cynnful is hosting at an event.. But for now.. I needs rest! Thanks again to Backdrop City! I didn’t even know there was an elevator/apartment backdrop!
Let’s forget the baggages of the past and make a new beginning.

So I’ve decided to not take on anymore sponsors.. At this day and age in SL, bloggers are no longer unique.. The styles slowly become the same, as well as requirements most want bloggers to follow. To me.. this hinders my creativity.. Takes away all the fun in blogging and literally turns it into a job where you only get paid what designers decide to give you.. Many times what you are given.. is against your own style yet you have to try and make it work in someway.. Well no more for me. I have lost my passion in blogging and am determined to get it back. The sponsors that decide to stay with me.. I feel have never tried to dwindle my creativity, no matter how un-explainable some of posts are lol. I miss the random creativeness in SL without the competition of trying to stay the best or in the spotlight. With these changes I hope I’ll get back to posting as much as I use to besides just dance reviews.
Oh! Speaking of dances, I was accepted as MOVE! blogger! So be prepared for even more diverse dances. So diverse it might be a bit harder for me to pair songs with some dances because they are definitely club dances. Just dancing to whatever beat comes on. If there is one thing I will forever be passionate about is dances. Fashion changes and not always for the good but no one can turn down some good dances, right? XD
Huzzah! For it finally being Fall as well, that will definitely trap me inside this house more mainly because it will be cold outside. XD But that also means I wont have to worry about bugging nail designers for mesh toes because it will be sneaks and boots season again! If you do happen to have me on FB, you’ll notice I keep asking nail designers to make some mesh toenails for these fingernails they be making. lols I don’t know if it’s just me but it irritates me so much when I have these fly nails.. but my toes.. my toes.. I can’t get them to match. XD Who the heck stares at only their fingers and don’t think about toes..Beats me but I will always be asking this question every time I see some nail releases so you might see me in the comments! XD
I’ll probably be the only person who feels this way by the way.. but I actually liked this year of Hair Fair.. I saw some comments where people were saying oh it’s sp awful.. It’s like South meets West.. blah blah.. Yet I feel all the other hair fairs.. lacked ethnic diversity in hair.. This round we have more of it and I realize how most who wear nothing but straight or wavy hair is the ones complaining the most.. It bothers me none but just thought I’d point out some things while looking about on SLFB. So if you haven’t been to this round of Hair Fair yet, the sims have finally let some leg room and you should be able to get in with no problem! Although I must admit, I was sad there wasn’t many futuristic hairs this time but either way I got a few good wigs to last me.. a week? XD
I might also, if you haven’t noticed already, begin to post my honest opinions MORE about things I see.. deal with on SL along with sharing my photos. Of course, if you don’t care to know you can always just look at my hard work and ignore these words. But just forewarning, don’t expect me sugarcoat things, I’m not willy wonka. And what I post here is how I feel at this moment, I might be a bit wiser the next day and change my views but for now as you read this.. This is how I feel at this moment about certain things. Taking my blog back and making it fully mine, have a blog to be proud of and give unbiased opinions. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥ (o_ _)ﾉ彡☆
All strange and terrible events are welcome, but comforts we despise.
Today marks the day, in Japan, for the Kurenai event to begin! You can expect the TP gates to fly open at 06:59(PDT). Until that time arrives, I have another quick sneak peek of what to expect at this Final Round of Kurenai.
It’s been a long while since I have blogged something from this designer.. Good times with them on my old blog curvethedulce, good times. But I never thought they’d actually try their hands in making hair! And it’s super cute I might add. With some minimal edits I did need to tint their browns darker for me to wear. But look how flippin’ cue these flowers are in the hair? Not to mention the braid tails. Talk about a nice surprise.
By the way, about this fan.. Yes it comes with a bento animation to fan yourself buuut it’s not a high high priority so you can edit the fan with your animare! 😀 This is a nice point to point out for fellow bloggers because sometimes you cannot edit the pose built into an object which can be frustrating. But here, that’s not the case here! You can also click the fan to restart the fanning animation which is also really helpful for not breaking position. This is a gacha with I think.. No rares, seems to be all common so a fair share in every pull. 😀
There’s also a good amount of nail polishes for the final round! I made sure to get a nice close up of these nails in a separate picture. Mainly because I could not animate my arm well enough to pull off a yawn and show. I did try though lol! Anywho, these nails include 5 colors. Really neat part is that the designer took the time to change up the nails to include a very nice pattern on your middle finger. My favorite thing about these nails is that they apply to both fingers AND toes! I always need my toenails to match, so I am thrilled that it applied to both.
Guess who else I was able to squeeze into this post? One of my sponsors! And if you couldn’t guess, yes the sponsored item is the really cute knotted dress. Unlike the other maxi dresses that touch your feet, this is more ankle friendly with any foot shape. I could walk in shallow water without worrying about the dress touching the water height. But of course I always have a gif included below to show you the exact length. Now this dress isn’t available for you to get juuust yet. It’s going to be in the August round of Mesh Body Addicts! So lookie there, two previews in one. X3
Welp, I think I blabbed enough! Wishing you all happy shopping when these events finally open. ♥
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you.

It’s time for the FINAL round of Kurenai!.. I can’t believe it’s already that time again… I could of sworn I had a bit more time. I couldn’t wait for this round to unfold and once again I was not disappointed.. Of course this event is running from July, 27th 08:00(PDT) to August, 31th 06:59(PDT). Consider this a really early sneak peek. 😉
I was really drawn to the silkworm farmer gacha. It looks soo realistic, no animations in it though but definitely beautiful decor for those wanting to decorate a village accurately. It’s not featured in this post but will be in another; a farmhouse is also in this gacha. Felt so honored to get to blog this.
Now the house I’m napping on is by another designer, has working doors, 1 main room and 2 side rooms. Definitely lives up to the architecture of a Engawa. I just wish I had a proper courtyard to show how Engawa’s are for but I think I did okay here as well. I did however include a link to describe what a Engawas use is. This structure comes with the option of paper windows or glass.
Not only that but how cute is this straw hat? X3 It actually fit my hair on the first try. That doesn’t happen too often for me lols. Be sure to on the lookout for some more Kurenai previews. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
When I use to read about fairy tales, I never thought I’d end up in the middle of one.
It’s time for that spin on Alice in Wonderland, yes it’s that time to show how creative my mind can get. Dun dun dun… I don’t know why but I am totally singing in my head while typing this and bopping my head like a dork. Anywho, Enchantment is still going strong and I have finally created a twist on the modern, hehe adult day Alice along with the help of a few other designers. Just a bit bum on the lack of nice white socks like Alice but I hope I could still execute my original thought. I also need for people to make a >< face for bento faces, you know those faces women make with that famous horror movie scream? Yeah that, all my animations are too subtle for a screaming episode lols. Random thought possibly designers?! I actually have a hunt item featured in this post that is going on right now at the Enchantment event as well!
This post is without a animated shot however, since I couldn’t find mary janes that worked with stockings well enough and most I have are too outdated. > .< So I do hope you don’t mind there isn’t a spinning close up this time but I promise you, what you see is what your getting and then some. ♥
Time to throw in an ol confession time, I use to be all up in the store of DeLa, I always found her to make the best hair strands. I find myself falling for her hair AGAIN. I think she’s the only designer I know to offer 3 different textures of each color for her hair. Whether you want the dull look, the slick shiny look or some roots. I just realized this mind you and wanted to gush about it. Because sometimes I don’t want shiny hair and some days I’m in looove with shine. Just a creator to keep an eye out for wigs wise.
This apron comes in three options actual! Each one with two versions of each style. There’s original, the one I’m wearing in the picture and floral that comes with the option of being clean or dirty. And then there is the dark apron that has the option of being clean and even bloody.
Nantra poses is an interesting one to use, I’m use to the props being more seperate to use but she includes hers inside the box that temp rezzes in-world with whatever pose you choose. 6 poses in total included, mirrored versions of each pose along with a shape if need be to make you fit the poses better. (i just tweak my own.).
I almost failed to mention how perfect my picture became once I had some random poker symbols floating about. It’s only a prim and definitely sets the mood for Alice. It even comes with the option of a decorative wall piece or even to have single rezzed versions of the poker symbols. Oooo there is even a wearable spiral of poker symbols if you feel real Red Queen-ish. Creative possibilities are endless right here. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

I do apologize in advance as I am running waay behind chedule on some things. This sleep is kicking me right in the tuchus and is being so controlling over me being awake lately. I hope no one has forgot about me just yet as I spew some more of these random stories at you.
It is with a sad heart that I say the Kurenai event is now closed and although I did not get to blog all the amazing things in this event I shall sprinkle some of these spotlight well deserved designers in my posts. Hoping that you might just, oh iunno, possibly visit their mainstore. 😀 I am finding so many more stores I have not gotten the chance to see, visit and go broke in. Not to mention who doesn’t want a vendor full of sex toys just to make your family question? XD
I actually had a fun image in my head on how to portray this vendor of hentai goodies… I was also trying to channel my inner weeaboo and try to do it as if it would to be a manga. I don’t know why but I would really like my pictures to portray two things that always bring me inner joy along with these hentai things. Kinky yet thoughtful. Manga and hentai are like the best things in the world, look at my bag! Even my bag shows off that anime lovings heh. I am actually at a loss for words for this post so instead of rambling, I think I’ll cut it short. Wishing you happy shopping and give some of the stores some time to put their things out. 😀 After all it did just end. ♥

Took me a day and some change to finish everything but I like to keep my promises. ♥ I even got my bestie, Cat, to join me in this vlog so I didn’t feel so self centered this time. lol However, I realized it is more fo a challenge to have more than one person in a video with you. I am so glad the SL gods were on my side this night and kept her rezzed throughout this recording. You’ll realize I’m still a bit amateurish in my moves and such but I think I did ok for working by hands. If anyone has some neato camming tips, I’d be much obliged! my hand can only move around so slow on BD. Remember, this is at the seasons story event!
Now about my skimpy version of the cheeky shorts fishnets. Just like on the shorts version you have the option of high waist fishnet or low waist. Animated sparkle colors if you want with the option of low and extreme glow options. This set even comes with a cute crew top as well as the panties and the top have paisley options as well as solid colors. The pearls on the fishnet can be hidden as well as the panties but not the fishnet. :3 Both versions can be found at the event down in the details. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
