With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

Happy New Years everyone!! When I first started to write up this post it wasn’t new years buuut with me trying to multi-task more than my brain can comprehend it is now New Years and I get to say Happy New Years to you all so I’m going to milk this opportunity right.. now.
Lemme just start with the biggest apologies if my resolution seems wonky. Photoshop decided to corrupt my main image I was working on when adding a reflection image to the base of it. Note to myself to save each major change separately rather than relying on just one psd for one picture.. sigh… I tried my best to recover it but only you guys could truly tell me hehe. I also apologize for my bad gif this time, my windlights resetted and now I need to spend time trying to fix up a new one lols. Such a bright one!
So not to make this post about me but I was actually praised recently in a way that touched me very deeply.. I was.. am struggling to keep my interest in what I love doing mainly because I don’t feel as though I’m helping anyone. But when I hear from anyone that they are inspired.. was able to find different stores.. branch out.. It motivates me to keep going, as if my voice isn’t falling on phantom ears. But I just wanted to give a public thank you to all those who either just discovered me and like me, been following me and I don’t know you’ve been following that long and appreciate the hell out of y’all and all of the in betweens because I’m pretty sure this is a run on sentence from hell.. But either way Thank you sooo much from the bottom of this icy heart. ♥
I do really hope people can see the progress I’ve been making as much as I do and actually enjoy it.. I do try and strive to better myself with each post. Granted some days my head is not always in the game and I’m scrambling to make deadlines to where I’m pretty sure the struggles are shown. I have minimized how many sponsors I take on because of that so I didn’t feel stress and I can truly show designers items the way I want and paint a picture with them. I am truly grateful for all the sponsors that kept me around and treat them like VIPs for it, without them don’t think I’d last this long either.
Anywho, I’m starting to ramble from lack of sleep and I should snuggle with my pillow like this cardigan is snuggling my avi.. By the way FLUFFFY cardigan.. lol. Happy shopping and Happy New Years.♥
Be patient and understanding, as magic is gifted to those who do not rush their destiny.
Surprises surprises in this picture this time round. I say surprises because for once I am actually not wearing maitreya and decided to dust off the old freya body and try and give it another whirl. Never know when I might pop up with something different on, hopefully I do this more often because it actually is quite fun. My biggest con with this freya body through… The deforming of hands with certain bento poses.. Phew.. I hope that gets fixed sometime soon seeing how long this body has been out and just recently ot moving fingers…. But I digress. U definitely have to keep an eye out on my fingers when doing certain poses, in this one it had a bit of conflict with the bento pose and bento holding pose of the book. So if you ever had that happen to you, you are not alone and man is it annoying lol.
Ok on to my inspo for this picture!,, I don’t really have one. To be honest I think the most fun about the picture was adding the cats in randomly to add the look of trying to read an ancient scripture then all of a sudden some black sphinx decide to keep ya company. Think the wiccan side of me slowly trying to show lols.
This book by the way has some crazy customization that I did decide to show you to, to yes, hopefully entice you to get one yourself for picture or roleplay purposes if not already. But when you look down below at the pictures notice how there’s options to change the pages. That alone made me want to do a looking over the shoulder picture but I got so frustrated trying to make this one work I forgot lols. Did I mention how I really like books. Real life too. Nothing beats the smell of a freshly opened book.
I think I failed to point out, now that I think about it, how much I have love me some fur shawls… I know I confessed my love for anything furry but if that anything furry can also drape on my arms… omg gimme. Don;t get me wrong this is a sexy ass dress but maaan I was sold on that shawl. Especially with my new ears and tail, that I did not wear in the picture since I didn’t have anything crystal wise and wanted to break the themes if LoL, it just blends all together so well.
Eek.. I must sat I think this is the longest I blabbed on a post in a while lols. Blabbed so much I’m unsure how to even end it.. Besides the norm wishing a good shopping experience of course.. . . . Guess I’ll just leave it at that then lol. ♥

I don’t know why but I had the strongest urge to make a cute story while wearing this really cute lingerie by Milk Tea. It doesn’t come with panties but it does come in four different colors and I actually almost blogged the blue but felt pink was matching a lot better with my critters. X3 Then I felt like a motherly being to unusual and unique creatures so then this picture was born! lol I hope it wasn’t too simple since I was just going off the top of my head and just spewing words onto a document.
Oh my dog though, Blaaack Friday is kicking my buuuutt, ohhh yeaaah. I have definitely fallen behind on organizing my inventory once again! Will this vicious cycle ever ennnd?. . . Anywho, humble apologies as I try to blog while organizing all these dang items I’m getting during these sales.. I was prepared this year! For once in my SLife I was prepared for Black Frid-yah! Now I’m just bearing the burden of organizing all the nice and shiny pretty new things. Inventory music montage here I come! Lol
Thanks again to Backdrop City, I had no idea what to set up as a background for a random story in my head and then boom! It stuck out to me and was so pretty, all I had to do was derender the backdrop and some of the side ones to expose the sky and make it look more blended with the lighting and trying not to use spotlights. Should definitely try it out yourself if you want to get a more realistic sky while at Backdrop City. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
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 the lights are dim and your heart is racing as your fingers touch your skin.
It’s time for another creative post this time with an extra closeup!
Since my butt has been sleeping way too often and trying to catch up on deadlines I finally found the perfect picture for this really cute dress by Cynful. Each color comes in 3 different overlay options, which are hud controlled. You can choose between sheer, lace and a soft lace version via a click in the hud. The fatpack allows you as usual to mix and match. It was for the Country Chic theme a while back for Collabor88. I’ve been fighting so hard not to just wear this dress with a cowgirl’s hat cause dang it it’s just that cute. But I keep having such weird inspirations, I finally had one that fit.
Songs are starting to have a heavy impact on me again.. I remember when this gacha first came out and I saw the fishbowl hair and instantly got Panic! At the Disco vibes. I didn’t know how but I wanted to recreate my own version from the music video and here I am. 😀 I hope everyone else instantly feels that nostalgia I did when I saw this hair. X3 If you have never seen the music video I highly suggest you click this link. I saw it back when the song first came out and I always wanted fishes floating around my head since. XD Maybe that’s why I liked 7seas fishes so much back when. I may be the only with a fishbowl on my head so just call me the die hard fan of ‘Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off’. Long. Ass. Title. Ijs. XD
Once again, another big thanks to Backdrop City for even existing. It seriously helps people like me that fall out of tune of what backdrops are even out on the grid. Another good creation by Pseudo to discover. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
