Shine On

Don't be afraid, let the light shine on for you in the darkest of places. Even the smallest of lights will illuminate the dark days ahead and make way for brighter beginnings and better tomorrows. Don't give up, don't give in.

Butterfly Boudoir and Caged Royalty

A new event started yesterday called ROMP, bringing high class sex items to the grid from clothing and accessories to furniture and poses. I discovered a new store at this event called Stockholm & Lima. They have a beautiful BDSM cage that I had to have and then I wandered over to their mainstore (I did take a picture in the cage, but since it's pretty dirty, I'll have to show it to you after the cut). The creator has a few things at the mainstore including this incredible Butterfly Bedroom Suite that called to me. This set caters to those in the D/S lifestyle although looking at the furniture you would never know it. The set includes a bed, butterfly capture box, mirror, spanking bench and corner shelf. Even the mirror and shelf have dirty animations.

The Butterfly Capture Box is especially interesting. It is RLV enabled (like all the other items in the set) and therefor you can "catch" someone who has this feature enabled. Each part of the box is texture change and there are various butterfly wings you can choose from as well. The entire set is texture change to match your home.

Music Overload

It's been a crazy week and I meant to get this post out earlier, but sadly RL comes first. Still trying to find a good blogging balance with my life right now and hopefully I can find it. Rhapsody wraps up today which is wear you find both the dresses in my pictures as well as the poses from Infiniti and the musical decorations from Plethora.

Losing The Lyrics Of My Soul

What else is new? Hair Fair 2014 opened two hours ago with some of the greatest hair designers on the grid. There are four sims, each named after four popular hair color categories (blonde, brunette, noirette, redhead). I'm featuring two great hairs from the event in this post. The first is from Argrace called Kanade. It comes with the cowboy hat and a HUD to change its color. The braid adds a cute touch. The second hair is from Tableau Vivant and its called Lusch. The chain is part of the hair and is also color change. Make sure you check out the Hair Fair website to get more info, maps and read up on Wigs For Kids!

Daughter of Odin

Growing up, I loved reading the mythology of various cultures. We didn't have TV so I spent a lot of my time at the library. I remember browsing through the larger books and coming upon this giant illustrated mythology book and becoming completely engrossed. I'm not nearly as well versed in Norse mythology and vikings as I am in Mediterranean ancient civilizations (Greek, Roman, Egyptian) but I still remember a few things. Odin is the head god in Norse mythology, leader of Asgard. He is associated with war and death and although most popular stories revolve around his sons (Thor and Loki most notably), it is believed he did in fact have daughters.

I went off on a tangent (sorry couldn't be helped) but this is really a quick reminder that this round of The Fantasy Collective is still going on, with the theme of vikings. Everything pictured (with the exception of my skin, tattoo and eyes) can be found at the event.

Nautical Nest

There are still two days left of this round of Collabor88 which is where you can get this adorable skybox from tarte and other various furniture pieces in this picture. While I was decorating, I found myself reminded of some of the beach houses my family has stayed in over the years in Rhode Island and Cape Cod. Although I don't think any of them had such a cute little mermaid decor piece.

And From The Laughter Of Babes, Fairies Were Born

It's the last day of the month, so all kinds of events are wrapping up. It's the last few hours to visit The Arcade and remember that some of the machines will be retired after this round and you won't be able to play them again. One of those machines is Ohmai!'s Summer Fairy Scavenger Hunt. You can get these adorable fairy companions that you attach to your avatar and flap their wings, along with decor fairies inside terrariums that I used in my last blog post.

We <3 Roleplay's June round is also coming to an end, which is where you can pick up this dress from Pixicat. The bodice is available in a variety of metals, the skirt is color change or you can turn the skirt off and wear the bodice by itself.

And although all kinds of events are ending, Rhapsody just started, brought to you by The Hottie Cooterati Experience. It's a music themed shopping event and you can view the map here. Each participating store created themed items for one of eight genres of music; punk, pop, country, classic rock, metal, jazz, electronic and disco. Infiniti is part of classic rock and made this great pose prop called "Stairway to Heaven." It has 10 different poses and includes two versions, with or without the clouds. Rhapsody also has some musical entertainment lined up for everyone! You can view the schedule of DJ's and live performers here.
