Beautiful day for a wedding …

May 20th 2018 is approaching really fast, Caleb and I have been … semi busy with planning and thinking of the wedding (ok not really).  Not that we aren’t excited about the wedding that is coming up but more that we are enjoying each others company more.  But we have finally taken a moment to just put our minds to it and just start to decorate.  I started off with Bridezilla intentions of having a blue and silver wedding because those are my favorite colors … and well that went south really fast because the more I thought about it, the more I realized I really don’t want to tie myself to two colors.  I want a variety of things happening at my wedding.  One thing is for sure though, I wanted a beachy wedding.  For sure that is something myself and Caleb really agree’d on because we both have this insane love for the beach.  So we set up a beachy island (when I say set up, we enlisted our decorating daughter to do so!) and poof we had a gorgeous outdoor space for our event!

ALOT of my decor is from Moss & Mink, which these items were part of the Arcade.  I worked really hard playing that machine to get everything I wanted.  Now she is a generous designer that will allow you to trade a full set of Trans for a full set of Copy.  Which was perfect for my needs.  We need lots of little cakes to set out at each of the tables for all to enjoy.  The aesthetic of it all was to be pleasing and yummy.  While we do have the longer buffet table to hold all the big goodies like our wedding cake, which again was perfect from her set.  I see it as one stop shopping to get the items I need for the wedding.  Now because this was an arcade item, there is a machine at the store where you can go up and see the demo and then play the machine to get all the goodies for yourself.  There are over 22 items to win, some of them are more for the color variations like the chairs, tables, and balloons.  The rest of the food goodies are all the same choice, then you have the two rares, the big cake and the conservatory.  All of which the items are very cute and fun to decorate with.

So if you are like me and are in need of some very sweet wedding items, or you are wanting party items for other special occasions, I would suggest that you cater to the girly girl in you and have your fun playing this machine, even Caleb is manly enough to have these at his wedding ♥  Make sure to check out the other amazing things she has in her store, if you are a cute frilly type of person this store is definitely for you!

Ocean Bath

Fapple’s Murderous Mermaid gacha set at PocketGacha contains a total of 29 items – 25 Commons and 4 Rares. This is a very comprehensive nautical themed bathroom set. There’s so many items, and not all of them are even pictured below so I definitely recommend you check out the full set in world. There is a demo at the Fapple store so you can look at everything or try it out for yourself.

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_04 | Mine & Yours

There are a few things I would like to highlight about this set:

-Fapple- MM Gacha- BDSM Ceiling Rack RARE
This is such a unique addition to the set and perfect to situate above the bathtub. Why? Well, there are some interesting breathplay poses subs can use when the bathtub is full of water such has hanging them upsetdown with their head submerged under water.

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Bath Tub RARE
A beautiful tub with functioning tap to run water and foam for glorious bubble baths. Who doesn’t like bubble baths?! There are also neat effects besides the bubbles, but also the splashing of water

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_01 | Mine & Yours

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Aquarium Sink RARE
My favorite piece! This sink is amazing. I love how it is an aquarium and can rez animated fishes when you touch the glass to add a bit of life and realism to the nautical themed bathroom. The cute little fish swim freely in the sink tank!

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_03 | Mine & Yours

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Shower BDSM RARE
The water effects of the shower is really nice. You have to check out this in world to see that the particles of water splash upon impact, making the showering experience so much more realistic.

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Dive Helmet
I just love this thing. It looks so realistic. Even though this item is common, it is my second most favorite item in this entire set. It sits like a trophy and even though I didn’t win anything, this dive helmet is more a prize for me than any trophy can be.

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_02 | Mine & Yours

This set can be won by playing the gacha, or if you are like me and just want to have the full pack, Fapple is also selling the entire set for $L4990. THAT IS A STEAL! Seriously! GET THIS AT POCKETGACHA! This is such an amazing set and with the full pack, you have copy permissions which means you can feel free to mod your items to a certain degree like I did with the Dive Helmet. I modded it from a display item to a worn helmet, and I love it!

The Cozy Corner …

Sometimes a girl just wants a quiet place to nerd out and read.  That is what I made up in the sky .. a quiet little place for myself to get away from it all and just relax.  Decorated in the sweetest of items by Moss & Mink.  A plush little chair with cushions that change, all you need is to attach the HUD and viola you can change the colors of your chair to fit the room of your dreams.  I paired this with the beautiful plants and ornate divider to give it a little class and flair. I even managed to find a group of vases that held dainty little flowers, perfect to place on the wall.  Adorning the wall is some ivy that I found at Half Deer.

I have to admit that I loved decorating the little area in the sky.  Sometimes I just feel like I need to pull things out of my inventory and just move them around.  You never know what look you will get until you are finished and feeling satisfied.  For myself its very calming to have a little space I can tinker with.  I am thankful that Caleb allows me to do so.  Not that I would give him much choice haha.   Moss and Mink is a very cute and girly like store, something that I really find appeal in.  I suggest that you if you have a secret girly girl in you like me that you check it out and see what other little pretty things are in the store ♥ You wont be disappointed.

LAQ Major Update and More!!

This might be the most exciting thing ever! LAQ has released some thing absolutely BRILLIANT .. and it saves us all some money!! So not only are there TWO heads you can purchase that are brand new, but now all the heads past and present can now work off the same HUD.  Which means the cost of purchasing is now going DOWN! and when I say down, I mean you are now paying only 1500L for a head and the normal 990L for skin.  Which still undercuts the 5k that you would normally pay if you were to get the heads in the bundle.  To me this is a brilliant marketing strategy.

**IF YOU OWN A LAQ HEAD ALREADY DO NOT ~ I REPEAT ~ DO NOT BUY A HUD! YOUR HEADS ARE BEING UPDATED!!** If you own a LAQ head do not waste your money on the 3k HUD that you need for a one time purchase.  IF YOU ARE NEW to LAQ Heads … you will need to purchase the HUD.  Like I mentioned this is a ONE time purchase that you will need to make and ALL your heads will work on the same HUD, which to me is so cool.  It cuts down on inventory clutter and you are spending 2k+ less than you need to!  And if you catch them when she does a sale the saving are even more!! So brilliant. 

So you might be asking what has changed?
– Increase in number of layers: 5 blush/tattoo layers, 3 eyeshadow layers, 2 lip layers
– Rigging improvements: Smoother flexibility in making different shapes and animations. Ear area rerigged so that you can wear bento ears with no deformations.
– Higher resolution for the eyelashes uv map. Controls for upper and lower lashes length, * opacity * and textures. Old lash appliers will need to update to the new uv map.
– New animation HUD: Shorter expression sequences for more control over how you want your avatar to interact. Larger smiles. Working furniture animations. Lock neck to play animations without head movements. Eye movements control, including mocap eyes only.
– All shapes are now full permission, so that you can transfer or resell your own versions of it if you wish
– Omega will be preinstalled on all heads purchased up until 2018.04.12. Heads purchased after this date will need a LAQ system kit.
– All skins are also sold separately, so you can pick any of them to go with your head
– RGB display and save slots for color tints
– Right/left ears on/off
– Clear all layers button
– Eye fx on/off, create and opacity
– Mouth/tongue on/off, tint
– Larger hairbase layer area
– Upper/lower teeth on/off

My best suggestion is you check it out, whether you are new for LAQ or you are already an existing customer … you will be amazed at the new quality and how smooth each thing runs now.  And like I said previously said, the way to save some money is a big incentive for these heads now.  I find this to be a game changer for many people! ♥

A Tale of Two Sisters

April’s round of Epiphany opens on the 15th at 10PM SLT and MadPea has released a very special and exclusive treat for you all. The gacha set, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” has a little game to the story of Soleil and Luna, and if you are able to figure out what the spiritual and intergalactic mystery is, you’ll receive a bonus prize and achievement.

A little addition to Epiphany: We all know that you can use points to redeem exclusive prizes, but Epiphany has added a VIP prize option too for those who spend $L1000 on a machine. MadPea’s A Take of Two Sister’s VIP prize is the Dark version of the Floral Spirit Board. The exclusive prize is the Moon Catcher.

The MadPea A Tale of Two Sisters set includes 27 Commons, 3 Rares, 1 VIP, and 1 Exclusive item, as well as bonus game prize if the mystery is solved. The gacha set features an original mystery story with an achievement and special bonus prize. This set is impressive and comprehensive as there are not only decor items, but interactive ones as well. I did not showcase every single item in the set, but some interactive pieces are:

– The Floral Spirit Boards which are fully functioning talking boards
– Luna’s and Soleil’s Bed which comes in adult and pg versions
– Wardrobe which comes in adult and pg versions
– Ornate Chest (click to open/close, holds a mystery)
– Storybook which gives the story of the Two Sisters
– The Sisters’ Cottage (72li – click to door to open, click fire to light/extinguish, sit on ladder to climb upstairs)

To work the Floral Spirit Board, ask a question by typing it in local, starting with /99 to channel your question to the Spirit Board. The player must be near the board or the spirit will not hear the question. Once the question is asked, the player(s) must keep touching (hold left click) the board for the planchette to finish spelling out its response. Once the question has been answered, another question may be asked in the same /99 channel. The board will reset after one minute if no new questions are asked or all players stop touching the board.

!Ohmai: Tarot Music Box – ‘The Magician’ (modded) by Anya Ohmai

All I see are the Stars…

So inspiring! ♥ This look comes from several different new items! I want to start with one of the simpler things the cushion I am posed on.  Its from Fapple, I am really enjoying the kinkier side of things.  That is what Fapple is all about, exploring that side of yourself that most tend to keep hidden.  I admit I have a great interest in the domination side of things, cept I am more the submissive one, and exploring that with Caleb has been a fun little adventure. This pillow I am sitting on is leather with the option of wearing a HUD to change the color of the seat and the little heart.  Personally I loved the brown leather and the red heart.  This seat is packed with poses and specially little trinkets that any submissive would love.  This cushion is unisex so both males and females can use it.  This is a single user seat – no couples. Which I think gives a little more to the RP side of things if you were to use this next to a Dominate/Domme seat, you would look pretty being all innocent looking.  Make sure to head over to the Fapple sim and try out the demo, you will not be disappointed! ♥

Next up is the bigger part of my picture, which is the background! Omgosh I am in love with all things Foxcity lately, as if you couldn’t tell by posts.  This fun little thing can be found at Kustom9.  I cheated and TP’d and cammed in … I mean that is how much I love her items.  This amazing backdrop has so much potential to it.  There are so many uses and poses that can be incorporated.  What I really love though are the options.  You can have the collective piece that is all together, with static glitter or you can have sparkle glitters.  Then you have the option for empty dome, and then you have all the glitter sheets that you can use to create your own look if you want!! I think that is absolutely fantastic for those that are creative or maybe want to add glitters to the walls … who know what you can come up with when using this! ♥

While you are at Kustom9 make sure you pick up this hair by Besom! This updo bun and tendrils look was a perfect look for my blog today, because of course when you are being naughty having your hair out of the way is better than all that hair being in your face, then again I guess to each their own, but no matter how you wear this hair it will give your face a beautiful framed look.  I adore the little strands that are falling out of this messy look, this will be a go to hair for when I am wanting to be casual as well ♥

Lastly  I wanted to touch on something but my next blog will be in greater detail.  LAQ has come out with a MAJOR update to their heads.  So be on the look out for that if you are an old user of them.  And for all your new people that might want to look into them … believe me you will be totally getting your moneys worth from now on! More to come in my next blog about that … new heads are coming ♥

Playful puppy comes inside the cushion. Please note I did alpha myself to show off the dog! The puppy is attached to your av as if you are petting him, but I wanted to show off the cushion more in this shot.

Beautiful Spring Day …

Location Kalopsia Main Store

Omgosh, I cant even right now with how I feel about this look! Its just in time for the spring season and going into the summer.  The cooler weather is starting to fade out in the land of SL … not for my RL as it did snow today! I mean come on its APRIL! We should be springing it up … dang it I sprung ahead for the time change…. yea mother nature get over your crack habit and please stop snowing!

Now this hair … omgosh, is what inspired my wind look! I mean Exile totally nailed it with this one.  I love the hairs that can be used more for pictures because it strikes the creative side of me.  Not only is it perfect for standing up in the wind look, but I feel it would be amazing for when you are laying down too!! So this style is very versatile.  This hair didn’t even require me to draw little strands to it.  I just really loved the way it looked and flowed so I left it untouched.  You can find the demo at Collabor88 which just opened so if you don’t get in right away then be patient you will eventually.  So many color packs to choose from and you can even just get the fat-pack because yea, the colors are completely amazing and I love them all to be honest.

Speaking of Collabor88, I am wearing the new Apple May dress which totally makes the spring look come to life as well.  There are so many cute patterns you can pick from.  From the florals to the solids of colors you will definitely love one or all of them! I personally loved all of them.  So that is what I now own! This dress is a strapless loose fitting dress with a nice fit around the upper body.  I know for sure this dress will be in my collection for well into the summer months as well, there are so many looks you can create with this dress!

Just to give a little credit to the sim owner, if not for their store location and amazing design that allows for some really cute pictures, I wouldn’t have been able to do my look.  I fully admit I am not one of those people that can do up larger land masses, I prefer my small spaces and clutters.  I really love that sim owners have such creative minds, and are nice enough to let us come along and take pictures there.  If you do go and check it out, the link is in the beginning, but please be respectful while there.

Now … go shopping, have fun .. do all the things and explore!! You never know what you will find

Down on the West Coast

From my last post, you all got a little glimpse of my love with the ocean as I scuba dive in RL. I have some exciting news for you aquatic souls out there – Alan Brady (Brady McKeenan) of flow is back! Yes, he is back!! flow specializes in surfing fashion and gear so to all you surfers, beach lovers, ocean divers – you are going to want to check this store out.

flow was one of my favorite stores back in the day. In fact, flow’s Surf N Shorts were my favs, and I would wear those all the time pre-mesh body era (Livvy can vouch for this because I always wore the same shorts lol). I have items from this store all the way back in 2013! Now, flow has returned with some awesome mesh beach gear, right in time for the quickly approaching summer season.

This post is only an intro/teaser post, to be honest. I have more posts planned to feature flow’s products a lot more in detail, but I wanted to put the word out there for those who used to follow or knew about flow. The new products are now completely mesh, compatible for Belleza, Signature, and Slink bodies.

Flow is back! | Mine & Yours

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt

The MadPea Easter Egg Hunt is coming to an end on April 5th (tomorrow)! My last post was about the prizes, but this post I want to focus on the notable sims that participated in the hunt as well as some feedback. Like the previous MadPea hunts, my RL tends to consume a lot of my time during these events, but I did try to visit as many sims as I could to capture some magical moments in the adventure.

My MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Adventure

Day 1 – Tagus Enchanted Forest

Tagus | Mine & Yours

When I visited Tagus Enchanted Forest last year, the lush sanctuary was quite pretty. But this year, there’s something much more magical this time around. There’s enchantment and mystery in this beautiful oasis. From thick pine forests to towering waterfall cliffs… to beautiful sandy beaches to dark spiritual corners, Tagus is a land of fantasy for all to enjoy. Home to a variety of animals and creatures, Tagus does offer many opportunities for magical moments.

Tagus 2 | Mine & Yours

Day 2 – Q Isles

I was trolled. In fact, most hunters were as they endured the evil, sinister Easter Bunny that dug a million holes for us all to search through for those prized eggs. Okay, I may have exaggerated. There were only 250. Only. Welcome to the land where I wanted to pull my hair out – Q Isles. Home to fellow Sarai Wise who has graciously entertained us with countless, bottomless hole-y fun, Q Isles definitely made it difficult to find eggs. And successfully caught my attention. GG, Sarai. I did find those eggs. But, yet, I feel like my sanity was lost in the process.

Q Isles | Mine & Yours

Day 3 – Noelia Island

Reunited and it feels so good… We meet again, Noelia Island. And you are still as stunning and beautiful as ever.

Noelia Island 2 | Mine & Yours

Noelia Island is gorgeous in its natural beauty. Identifying as a Mediterranean island, Noelia Island was a welcomed warm paradise with such beautiful serenity. The lush, enchanting green meeting deep, majestic blue is something Livvy and I both love very much. These photos are merely a small part of what this island has to offer.

If you also took pictures at Noelia Island, share them to their Flickr group here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/noelia_island/

Noelia Island | Mine & Yours

Day 4 – Fanci Deep SW

I am a scuba diver in RL so I absolutely love the waters in both worlds. I appreciate when land is dedicated to the colorful and brilliant beauty of the ocean within SL. I was so happy to have come across Fanci Deep SW, only one region out of four in the Fanci Deep sims that welcome all sea creatures and divers to enjoy. Incredibly prime real estate, Fanci Deep is directly connected to the famous Blake Sea. With so much life below and above water from one sim to the next, this is a swimmer’s dream location of endless water and adventure.

Fanci Deep SW | Mine & Yours

My Personal (positive and negative) Feedback – Changes MadPea made from their last hunts:

1. No teams this time around

I am happy the Egg Hunt did not have teams since traditional egg hunts do not typically involve team effort. It more or less preserves that thrilling excitement for those who can’t wait to let their inner Katniss Everdeen out or for those who like to take time in searching for eggs wherever they may be.

2. Still no competitive cash

For the past few hunts, there seems to not be any more daily cash reward for the Top 3 Hunters we saw in the Summer Hunt. Instead points were given out, which I still don’t understand. As mentioned in my previous experience with last year’s Christmas Hunt, if you place in the top spots for hunting, points tend to not mean much and aren’t much of an incentive.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place (was 500 points last hunt)
500 Points to 3rd place (was 300 points last hunt)
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

There is a hard cap as to how useful points can be in the hunt system, especially for those who already have enough points to redeem all prizes. The incentive for points does not seem really enticing, especially if the top hunters are already racking up a lot of points already. However, I am glad MadPea upped the points bonus regardless for second and third place since it does guarantee at least one extra Tier 1 prize if they hadn’t redeemed one yet. Still, I’d suggest MadPea gift cards or credits instead of bonus points.

3. The Eggs/Hunt Items

The eggs were the same MadPea eggs used from 2017, yet they are still rather nice and pleasing to the eye to hunt for! Compared to the cute Christmas Toys of last year though, these eggs were a bit harder to find. There were no audible cues nor did these eggs move around once you got close. Super traditional hunt, yet I enjoyed the simplicity of it.

4. Hunting Gear

Not much this time around, but, again, happy for the simplicity this time around. For something so traditional as an Easter egg hunt, no need for fancy outfits, accessories or gear. Optional cute bunny hoppers are available for sale to make the hunt more fun.

5. Radar

I have the same issues with Easter Egg Hunt Radar as the Christmas Hunt Radar from my previous blog post:

  • Favorite Button – This seems to function only as a voting button to vote for your favorite sims, letting MadPea collect all hunter’s votes when the ‘favorite’ a sim. Then, top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Last hunt, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – It seems minimizing the HUD’s real estate on the screen was not an intention. This thing takes up quite a bit of room when opened. The horizontal bar that stays at the top of the screen is clunky with no way to resize. I’d rather the section that displays the numbers be an expandable cartridge, similar to the existing window toggle for the prize display window. As a result, I just moved my Radar all the way to the right side of my screen to only display the Radar section, not even using the stats part of the HUD which eliminates 75% of the clunkiness and keeps my screen more visible.
  • HUD Indicators – The frequency of the HUD beeping has decreased (when getting closer to eggs) which I actually did not like because I rely heavily on sounds (as all gamers do to know when something is near). In addition, the HUD does not display the number of hunt items that can be found on the sim. Not really sure why that feature was taken away since it was actually kind of nice to know the quantity of hunt items there would be to quickly gage the amount of time you’d be spending in that particular sim to find all the eggs.

6. Nice Prizes!

As always, MadPea does not disappoint with the prizes! There were so many to choose from. This round seemed to be more focused on decor which would only be useful to those who own property, but there were a few things that weren’t just decor. My favorite item was actually the Game of the Goose boardgame. It is interactive and actually fun to play in a group of up to six people. If you haven’t already, check out my other post here to see what some of the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

Just Breathe

Hello pretty people reading my our blog! So I am going to tell a sappy story … if you don’t wanna hear it you can skip down to the next paragraph.  So my Caleb, he asked me to marry him on January 1st of this year! What an amazing way to begin a new chapter in our lives, right?! I think he got tired of my nagging him really … but you know, a girl knows what she wants. Which is completely true, I knew it years ago when I flickr stalked him … because … you know that is what girls do! I think.  But anyways, I mean he put the ring on it and now he is stuck with me.  Now the background I am using is part of our actual wedding set up on the land, and well its a sneak peak.  I am not gonna mention it in my blog just yet, because I have something more special for that day!

I wanted to simulate a bride on her special day, minus the groom, cause well I don’t want him here yet.  I asked for a long engagement because oddly, I really admire the fact that we still learn something new about each other every day. Like the fact that Caleb is a complete butt!  Anyways, the dress I am wearing is new at FaMESHed.  The event opened on the first of the month.  Here you will find this gorgeous dress by Just Because.  Now this dress, I am wearing in the white because it makes a very beautiful natural wedding dress look for the girl that wants a simplistic like style when she is walking down the isle, which is very tempting for me and you never know I might actually change out my dress …. Now Evelyn is the name of this beauty and she comes with a HUD that allows you to change the colors so if you want a night on the town dress you can most defiantly have that! it is a very elegant look with detailed beading along the neckline, and there is a part of the HUD that will allow you to change the metals of the beads.  You can also change the criss cross strap across the top of the chest.  So this is a completely customizable dress that you can maximize the most out of your look!

So this is a short and sweet post, I really wanted to share this dress so you all can get your hands on it quick, please keep in mind if you are trying to get into FaMESHed to please have some patience because frankly the sim is full and it is a popular event.  Also please take off anything that would cause lag … believe me the lag is more harmful to you than anyone else.  So leave fluffy at home okay?  Anyhoo you all have fun shopping and check out the whole event, there are some cute things there this round!!
