“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Soft

Soft

One of the things I’ve been working on is meditation for grounding myself and creating peaceful moments. This outfit from Meva reminds me of soft music that I found that I’ve been listening to lately. I thought I’d share it with you below. When I’m stressed or anxious or needing to sleep, it offers ethereal visuals and a soft music that is comforting and meditative. It’s worth trying out if you have trouble sleeping or anxiety. ❤

This beautiful outfit from Meva is the latest Group Gift and is just as calm and peaceful. The group is 100L to join but you’ll get beautiful monthly group gifts for the Maitreya body just like this one. The package includes multiple colors (a full fatpack) including this beautiful sheer shade of light blue.

Visit your favorite sim, put on some meditation music, and relax. It might be just what you need for the end of a Hectic day. ❤

Traveling…

Travel has been an important part of my life, as has art. When I was in London, I visited the National Museum and relished the beautiful artwork. I have traveled to various museums around the world as I had the opportunity to enjoy the artwork – paintings, sculpture and more – whenever opportunity arose.

Because of this, I love when a new installment of Cica Ghost is ready and am always up to going to visit! One of my favorite pictures of an adventure I shared with Damian is taken at a Cica Ghost sim from a time long past (hard to believe we’ve known each other so long Damian!).

So I landed at the latest installment – Dogwood – and lo and behold, I landed on Cica Ghost themselves! Cica was friendly and personable and said Hello and nice to meet you. I didn’t want to disturb and went about my business taking pictures because they were busy putting the finishing touches on the sim – I think? And also greeting people who were landing. It was really lovely! I mean how awesome is it to be greeted by Cica Ghost!

One of my favorite stores – Ricielli – is having a summertime hunt. I love this particular hunt as Ricielli is doing something I haven’t seen before. They are offering two options. For 15L per hunt item you can purchase the copy version or the no copy/transfer version. I got the transfer versions and handed out the extra items to friends! In each package there were copies of clothing items for different mesh bodies, so I kept the Maitreya copy and passed the copy of the Slink Hourglass, Isis, and Freya to friends! Win Win!

For the lovers

For the lovers

It’s February and soon it will be Valentine’s day, the day to show your loved ones how much you love them 🙂

Luckily this month we also have the Menstuff hunt so the guys can dress up nicely for that big day. I made sure to pick up all of the gifts as soon as I could because I just love unpacking and being surprised by all of the items the creators have hidden for us to find!

For the lovers 2

House of Ruby created this really lovely shirt and boxers! It’s just right to set the mood and to surprise your partner(s) with as you serve them breakfast on that special day. It comes in appliers for Slink and Omega.

No.Match also surprised us with a groupgift this month, hair for both ladies and the gentleman! It’s a fatpack with all hair colors and also a hud to pick a color for the headband.

Red

The Womenstuff hunt ends on the 30st of November, so this will be you last chance to pick up the free- and dollarbies.

My avatar is wearing closed version from a free red shirt from Pink Cream Pie, but there is a also an open version included for whoever feels a little more sexy during these cold months. It comes in the sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hg
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The heels are also a Womenstuff hunt gift that can be found at DE. Boutique. That is… if you will be able to find the hidden hunt item that is in the form of a little T-shirt.

For those that will not be able to make it on time before that hunt ends, worry not, there will be PLENTY more hunts and events when December begins. One of the events that has already started, is the SaNaRae event and they also have some free gifts out.

I picked up this nice choker from Supernatural that I wanted to show. It comes with two huds to choose a color for the bow and tons of colors for the gem. I also found these really nice ripped leggings from Rekt that also includes a hud with 7 colors to pick from. It didn’t say what size it was, but I assume it’s just Maitreya since it fit my avatar’s body perfectly.

Celebrating Fall

Celebrating fall

Kustom9 is celebrating their birthday and the creators there have a nice surprise for you at pretty much every booth. For only 9L you can pick up exclusive items, like the hair and sweater my avatar is showing in the picture.

Redeux also has gifts out and there are a LOT of them again. For now I am only showing this nail polish from CAZIMI that comes with a hud that allows you to pick several colors, but I discovered some more interesting stuff that I am planning to show.

The fun pose is from the Pose Fair and it comes with all of the props in the picture, such as the fence, the leaves and the pumpkins and it feels like a little celebration of the fall. If you enjoy taking pictures, I highly suggest to visit the event. I believe I counted 57 gifts and most of them are of course poses.
