Dangerous Woman

Livvy recently took a sexy pic of her dressed as a satyress and my goodness, I could not keep my eyes off her. I loved how she made the look so sultry and hot with her deep strawberry wine colored hair and the satyress set from Apple May Design in her previous blog. In fact, pretty much anything Livvy has worn from Apple May Design, my body just naturally gravitates towards her and this insane craving to just strip her naked for some adulting would overwelm me.

Last few examples of AMD designs where I just want to strip Livvy naked: Satyress outfit, Beauty is Pain corset & panties, Athen gown, Ms. Kitty outfit, Naughty lingerie etc, etc.

I mean, seriously – how is it that I become this lustful fiend when I am around Livvy and all she has to do is doll herself up with some AMD + accessories?!

I somewhat digress. But, really – I did NOT expect myself to be so turned on when Livvy wore that satyress outfit. I will admit – I was completely mistaken. This outfit had the perfect sexy amount of unfamiliar fur to pay homage to the goat portion of a satyr and brilliantly accentuated the beautiful curves of the female body. Kudos to Apple May for really doing something out of the usual because it definitely caught my attention.

I come right up to Livvy, a complete and powerful attraction to the allure of her beauty. Top off. Panties gone. This was the result of such a dangerous woman. Somethin’ ’bout her makes me do things that I shouldn’t… And I am at her will. [TUNE – Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande]

He Didn’t Have a Choice

Today is me completely being outside of my normal boundaries.  Caleb and I took our relationship to another level today.  One where he relinquishes his control to me.  That’s right, I am being the dominant girl in our relationship.  Normally Caleb in the dominant male and I love it.  He knows all my wants and takes care of all my needs. This time I got to explore what it takes to really satisfy him.  It wasn’t much and it didn’t take much, such a man really.  It took me being naked, on top of him and he getting to lay back and just enjoy the ride.  A little exhibition as it was on our beach, private yes, but hey anyone could have popped over at any time while we were exposed and having the time of our lives.  I will tell you I felt absolutely in control and beautiful in the moment exploring a different side of us.  The one where I held all the power.

Caleb and I have found a store that is new/not so new.  It’s called Fapple.  New to the game for us in amazing makings of the erotic furniture, with gorgeous animations and imagination.  Though in the description of the store it states its a Femdom store, don’t let that fool you because there are plenty of Maledom items as well.  There are many things there to make a man feel like a man.  But for this post we are using the Mistress gets a tan items and that is all about me and my need to control.  So you want to know a little more about this set?  Well here is some information for you:

This set comes with a HUD that has over 40 different combinations of colors that you can use to get a look you like.  Being we were on the beach, I went with the classic white colors and the wood blue.  Because frankly I love the color blue and it looked so good in my vision and matched my hair! Uhm yea, I matched my furniture to my hair, don’t judge me! This item is also RLV compatible, we didn’t test this out because Caleb isn’t RLV in the submissive form like I am so I let him have a pass on that.  But there are so many poses.  You have the sweet poses for the couples, while keeping the girl in control.  Then there are the naughty poses.  And when I say naughty, I mean naughty.  Really Naughty.  So … incredibly naughty.  Yummy.  Caleb was definitely under my control for this menu, so much so that he couldn’t even fix his pose, that was all up to me.  And in a way, I really loved that aspect, he had no access to any menu options once he clicked that submissive button.  For me, it literally gave me the feeling of I had all the power.  And believe me … I abused that power to no end.  Don’t worry Caleb enjoyed every moment of it.

I don’t want to ruin all the goodies for this set, so I think you should go and check it out at the Mainstore and love on the item.  Believe me, I really was into it and I know Caleb loved it.  So this is a step in the Livvy will Rule the world in domination.  Imma let it go to my head.  All the power belongs to me! ♥

The Forgotten Dead’s Playground

MadPea released a unique, rundown playground for the March 2018 round of The Imaginarium, perfect for decorating those post-apocalyptic or wasteland scenes. I couldn’t resist a little fun and introduced a bit of dead into the playground too. Sometimes, there’s more to just wandering around aimlessly and eating brains for these zombies.

MadPea Forgotten Playground | Mine & Yours

There are 18 commons and 2 rares in the set. If you play MadPea’s The Forgotten Playground machine 20 times, then you’ll get the Gift of Imagination (GOI) item as well! Remember, once The Imaginarium event is over, this gift will be retired! Most of the items in this set is animated of some sort, making it a fun interactive set for more than just one person.

The Bouncy Castle RARE makes you bounce as soon as you get inside it, allowing you to move any which way you want in the bouncy space. In order for this awesome bounce house to work, you’ll need to make sure push is enabled on the land and that the bounce house is owned by the same owner of the land (or deeded to the land group).

The Rocket Slide (GOI) is animated upon sitting on the object, playing a sequence of your avatar climbing up the ladder and then sliding down. You can even bring up a menu to allow adjusting for your avatar’s height. The seesaw is cute, having animations for for both female and male sits, and automatically moving up and down once a single avatar is seated. The Merry-Go-Round spins and allows up to 4 avatars to sit on this item with four different animations to toggle through by clicking “swap”. The Swing Carousel spins as well and can seat up to 8 avatars with two different animations to choose from.

奶奶家

My grandmother (from my father’s side) is from Shanghai and I am still fortunate enough to be able to have her in my life. She’s had a long, tumultuous life, especially during the madness of the Chinese Revolution. Now, her life is more calm here in the States with me where she lives a more tranquil and modest lifestyle, close to her family and only a phone call away. Every few days I go visit my grandmother and take care of her, making sure she has everything she needs and her home is tidy. Her home has become a second home to me. Just recently my grandmother reached an amazing age of 89.

請進 – Welcome to my grandma’s home.

Whatchu Eating Livvy?

Hello! I guess everyone has a routine.  Mine is getting up and starting my day in the best of ways.  Most people eat Breakfast, whelp that is not for me! I am a brunch like girl, I am not big on eating in the morning.  So I use my morning to get ready, looking pretty for my future husband ♥ I do that by dressing up in the prettiest of dresses like this one for instance! Just Because has come out with another fabulous dress.  I was completely inspired by the pastel pallet that was in the pack.  The fat pack comes with all the colors and I just couldn’t resist the color choices, so full of spring and away from that pesky winter weather.  I just couldn’t resist it!  And golly look at the details, I mean that is one of the reasons I was really wanting this dress.  It shadows in all the right places and in particular windlights its extremely highlighted in the best ways.

Next I was inspired by the new hair that Exile released.  I went with my normal blond choice by Kavar, I love all the colors don’t get me wrong, but I believe that his blonds are one of the best on the grid.  What I really enjoy is the style of this hair, its long and swept all over the it looks slightly wind blown but yet still well kept.  Something I really appreciate with this hair color choice is the roots.  I always find that I float towards the rooted versions of the hairs.  It gives that bit of pop that one needs, and still keeping natural.  You can find this beauty in the main store!

Then you have my Fabulous necklace here! This is another amazing Cae creation.  And as I tend to mention its one of my favorite styles by her.  Layers.  I love when her items have layers.  It gives that dimensional look that you can pick and choose what you wear.  You can hide layers and change the colors of each of them, from the metals to the jewels.  Its one of those items you don’t want to go without.  Personally I always have a necklace on and 9 out of 10 its ones of hers haha.  Bias maybe … but its just my opinion and how I feel about the brand.  This item can be found at Cosmopolitan this round.  So make sure you head on over and pick it up.  It’s an amazing deal! ♥

Now my post is called Whatchu eating Livvy? That is because I start my day getting pretty and after getting all pretty, I work up an appetite. What better than starting your day with some toast, egg, and avocado … with a side of grapefruit, and a little tea, and a big ol cup of cappuccino.  This is a healthy way to eat and apparently avocado is all the rage these days and its very nice paired with toast and eggs.  How do you all like your eggs?  I really like mine when I take a big bite and the yolk breaks and runs.  I find that most people don’t like their eggs that way.  That is okay because its more for me! And to keep my pep up I enjoy a very nice warm cup of tea … then I NEED MY CAFFEINE! You wanna decorate your table like mine?  Well I got so many goodies from Apple Fall and Dustbunny.  I am completely taken by the fact that the items look so realistic.  That is one of the biggest qualities that you find with these two brands, I am always amazed at how real items look in my home, I mean as real as the SL limits allow them to be.  It makes my kitchen all that more enjoyable to be in!

Konekowatch Road Rage

We’re all mad here, right? Especially with MadPea’s Road Rage gacha set for Remnant Dark Days that features a grungy-style bumper car arena that really makes for some crazy fun. Just a lil fun pic I did to showcase what a madhouse this ride can be, just like how a normal game of Overwatch tends to be for me – insane. These cute Overwatch-inspired kittens from Cubic Cherry were the purrfect (cute) drivers for this crazy ride.

Let me tell ya – I get road rage while I am driving, and I swear California is full of idiots who do not know how to drive properly. Sometimes I just wish we all drove bumper cars in RL so I can purposefully ram slow ass drivers and idiot drivers off the road to get to my destination! I digress (totally had to vent there). MadPea’s Road Rage, let’s just consider this set such a therapeutic session in SL that is not only fun but gives us all a great excuse to let out some RAGE! AHHHHHHSAKSKJSJAKFKSAKL!!!!

Konekowatch Road Rage | Mine & Yours

MadPea’s Road Rage gacha set includes 23 commons, 1 rare, and 1 Ultra rare (the bumper car arena). The Ultra Rare is the one you really want because the bumper cars actually communicate with the arena to create a carnival-style ride experience that lasts for 90 seconds each ride. Bumper cars automatically pair with the Arena when rezzed within the space. Once the ride starts, a chain at the entrance of the arena appears to keep the space safely enclosed. Once the ride ends, the chain will disappear.

While most some items in the Road Rage gacha set is just decor, there are some pieces in the set that are scripted to enhance your bumper car experience.

In each bumper car prize, there is a prop version with animations and a rideable version. Bumper cars do not require the arena to operate. However, the Ultrarare Arena requires the rideable bumper cars to properly function cohesively in a system.

There are flood lights that you can turn on/off. The Mounted Traffic Light and Portable Traffic Light have a menu to change the sequence of the lights that flash. The traffic lights also function with the Arena ride when it starts and ends.

The loudspeaker can randomly announce custom messages into local chat. Inside of the Loudspeaker is a notecard that has three lines you can put your own messages in. Each line is a different message that will be broadcast in local chat. The default time is set to 10 minutes, but can be changed via the notecard.

The Road Rage official sign can be turned on and off. While on, the sign is scripted to mock a ‘glitching’ experience by buzzing and sporadically flashing off and on.

The Rare Monster Mascot is a beast and looks pretty gnarly in the bumper car arena. You can click the hood to open and close it, and as you do so, it growls at you. You can also click to turn the headlights on and off.

Into the Forest

Halllllowwwww people! I am very excited to bring you something different in my little blogging world.  I use to be big on dressing up as something different in the SL world.  Being a hybrid something use to be a big thing, or well it was when I was thinking about it (remember the Neko?)  Well this is a Satyress and I love it.  So this is an Apple May Design product and this is a bit out of her normal clothing that she would do.  But to be honest, she knocked it out of the park.

A little more about this set.  First off Satyress is at the Arcade, and there are several different colors out of outfit, fur, and horns.  This is a random chance machine, so you have to work to get the products.  If you would like to look on the marketplace you can do that too.  There are several parts that makes up this outfit:

Horns: Brown, Ivory, Black 
Tail, Hooves: Light Brown, Brown, Black, White
Top, Pants, Belt: Black, Brown, Olive, White, Red
Armband: Dark and Light

So I think that is everything on this set.  It’s amazing and I can see myself and many other role-players using this set.  Now for me this is something that I would wear just to wear because I want to.  I like being different, looking different and sometimes I just want to dress up and be silly.  All part of my personality.  So head on over to Arcade, there are three sims, you can get there now! Make sure to check everything out and get your Saytress look ♥

While Caleb’s Away …

While my husband is away working super hard in his life, he is always texting me and telling me how much he misses me.  So I thought I would be the good wifey to be and snap a little picture and send it to him.  Why?  Because that is what I like doing for him.  I love him so yeap … sappy stuff.  Sexy stuff?  I dunno, either way, I like doing little things for him. ♥

So what inspired this picture is that I am a big fan of the Foxcity poses and her backgrounds.  I seen this floating around on the Flickrs and I was like omgosh I have to have this.  But you are probably asking what is my obsession with these poses and background right?  Well it’s hard to explain, I am a big fan of these bento poses she makes, its hard to find someone that makes poses that fit to my shape, I am not an odd shape by any means, but it seems like shapes tend to be made towards the creators shape and if you are not a close match its hard to fit.  Now with Foxcity she gives you a NC that tells you how to shape your arms and such to fit your body, some might not want to change like me, but I find that her poses fit me the most! So yea, obsessed.  What about the backgrounds you ask?  Welp that is because her lighting in the backgrounds are so nice.  And I think they are just high quality, which is something I appreciate.  Oh and you can find this at the event Blush (It literally just opened today) ♥

I also got my Exile hair from Blush! This half top bun hair is one of my favorites now.  I really love this look and its perfect for this bathroom scene! I always feel like Exile puts out some really fun hairs, I even the plethora of colors you get in the fatpack.  There is a color for everyone in the packs.  All from your normal colors down to the funky rainbow colors, to the actual rainbow in your hair! Its the best.  Seriously something for everyone! ♥

Now, I took a trip over to FrouFrou, which is another amazing event.  It caters to the sexy side of the life.  Lots and lots of lingerie for all the world to look gorgeous in! For me I choose this little number by a designer I am not familiar with.  I am sure many of you might know her.  The store is called Abrasive.  I think I will be going to the main store to find out what other items are sold there.  I will admit I am dying over this set.  The half like tube bra, and the ruffled up panties, totally hot for a selfie in the mirror! ♥

Now, make sure you head on over to the events, check them out and the other stores there, buy – shop and looooove all the things! You want it … you know it.  I know Caleb does hehe

Admittedly, I am a fellow MadPea fan who just recently started getting into these interactive games last year, so my MadPea game repertoire is not as vast as many other MadPea fans. I’ve completed four games so far: Sinister Slaughters, The Tower, Seven, and now Nightmare in New Orleans (NiNO). Despite the limited MadPea gaming exposure, I am an active gamer both in video games and board games so I’ll be discussing MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans based on my own personal tastes and perspective. My rating is completely my own opinion and will be different from everyone else’s.

Rating System

Immersion
Visuals      9/10
Sound design      8/10
Misc. (loading screens, environmental lighting, etc)      2/5

MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans is a visual treat. Like all the other MadPea games I have played, the adventure takes you into MadPea’s meticulously created world – this time, to the culturally rich city of New Orleans. Last time I visited NOLA was summer of 2014 where heat is no joke, the alcohol flows, the food is fresh and spicy, and the city is full of life. Art at every corner, people dancing in the streets, music in the air, so I was extremely excited for MadPea’s take on such a soulful destination in SL. Nightmare in New Orleans sends you to a handful of diverse locations within the city and each location is amazingly decorated. The space is large enough for exploration (some are massive plots!!) with relevant, high quality decor. I absolutely loved drinking in the scenery and exploring the area, finding great angles to take a snapshot.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Let’s talk about the sounds for this game – I AM IN LOVE! As soon as I heard the voices from these characters MadPea created with animated avatars, my heart just warmed and swelled with such happiness. Yes, yes, yes! The voices were so good! Voice acting is often overlooked in a lot of games and I am just so completely happy that MadPea found talent amidst the SL community. These actors/actresses really made the game characters come to life with not only depth in the voice, but such great flow and idiosyncrasies in speech patterns. Each character spoke only a few lines, but I craved more! I even clicked on characters from a distance away (when I played a second time) because I was too eager to hear the voices again, only to be greeted with the following: “Sally Dupre: I can’t hear you from there, don’t be afraid and come a little closer.” Aw dang it, the game didn’t have Sally voice that line and I was saddened. Sally, I just want to hear another line with that sultry, smooth voice of yours. One more line, please!!!

Big shout out to Dextrum Boucher, Divinity Matova, Laetitia Vella, Sassy Nitely, and Veruca Beck for their amazing voiceovers!

Anyway, as you can see, I am a huge fan of the voice acting in this game. Some other things I would have liked to see more is maybe a little bit of the city itself. Perhaps a scene outside the club in the back alley where players can hear the whines of trumpets and saxophones off in the distance. Or maybe a scene in the iconic French Quarter, just to be further immersed in the actual city of New Orleans. Each scene in the game felt so isolated from one another because they were all so different. A common city scene would have tied this all together a little bit more meaningfully to remind the players that yes, even though New Orleans is so diverse where every corner can be a completely different aspect of the city, it is still one big location.

Content
Creativity/Originality      9/10
Story      8/10

I am probably biased because I just love New Orleans, but this game left me completely happy upon completion that I may be rating each category higher than I usually would. I don’t even know if it is possible to not be creative with anything inspired by New Orleans. That being said, I really loved how NiNO’s gameplay flowed from one scene to the next. The diversity of scenes were greatly appreciated and the gameplay itself was very fun.

Livvy and I played the game together and our favorite scene was the bayou – hands down. It tied in my most fav kind of game play – hunt and prey. I had a lot of fun running around the gorgeous bayou, trying to seek out game clues while shooting zombies in the process. Livvy did not have a weapon (she lost her knife in the struggle with an alligator!) while I had a shot gun (a perk you can play for in Madpea’s Mama Mojo’s Bayou Bargains gacha). She would run around, finding clues while I distracted the aggro’d zombies and snakes that were guarding the area. My favorite part is when as soon as Livvy finds the clue, she zips away, waving “Bai babyyyy! I don’t got a weapon so I runnin’ awaaaay!” and leaves me to deal with the enemies I am trying to eliminate.

The storyline was intriguing (but then again, I don’t know if it is possible to be uninteresting when inspired by New Orleans!) and I loved meeting each character as well as completing some of their missions. The best part in terms of story was the possibility of multiple endings. For NiNO, there were two different possible endings, depending on the way you would play the game. I love that aspect as it creates another opportunity of multiple rounds of gameplay as well as figuring out how to unlock the alternate ending.

Objectives
Compelling      7/10
Variety      9/10

My favorite objectives are the explore/search ones where I have to hunt down specific items. There were a few of those in this game and I LOVED it! In fact, right off the bat, you as the player are kind of plopped into the game without much to go off on, so you have to figure out a way to advance to the next step. The logic was solid in how to search for clues, and what I loved most was that clues for a single mission may not necessarily be in that mission’s location. I love, love, love that previous scenes are also possible places to find clues because the places are worth revisiting with how detailed and beautifully decorated they are! There was a particular puzzle in the cathedral’s private office that I did not know what the relevance of it was to the theme of the game. It felt a little out of place, though it was fun to complete it.

Mechanics
Interactive      8/10
Interface      4/5

I love that MadPea took the time to make character avatars that interact with the player via menu options like a lot of story driven games we see now. Though most interactions lead to the same end result, I’d like to see more opportunities for more endings. When I was a kid, I was addicted to those Choose Your Own Adventure games, discovering what actions lead to what sort of ending. Those were always fun for me to figure out.

It is also worth noting here that the combat portion of the bayou was my favorite part! I had a blast doing that scene and because the zombies/enemies are aggro-based, not just aimlessly wandering around as easy targets, it made the gameplay a lot more enjoyable.

The interface of the game HUD was good – I have no complaints about it. Design was sleek and minimal in that the buttons were collapsible and the overall function of the HUD was intuitive. Great visual design of the HUD as well. Loved the design of the Juju coin. Really wish players got a Juju coin souvenir. In fact, I think MadPea should start one of those destination/attraction coin collection souvenirs as a rezzable prize for each game completion.

Peripherals & Prizes
Outfit/Accessories      3/5
Prizes     4/5

There were two optional outfits players could purchase – 1 for females and 1 for males. The female outfit (50’s style colorful dress) looked cute! The one for male (formal suit) wasn’t my style as it looked a bit clunky on me. The optional game accessories (enhancers) from the Mama Mojo Bayou Bargains gacha set are pretty neat trinkets. Some items are great voodoo souvenirs while other items (such as the shotgun) can give a nice advantage in the combat part of the game. Another cool enhancer is the rare Swamp boat that gives you the license to drive a boat on the actual game’s bayou swamp!

The prizes at the completion of the game are quite cool (for someone like me who likes to decorate scenes). MadPea got some amazing creators to contribute to the awards. If you are interested in seeing all the prizes for MadPea’s NiNO, check it out here.

Overall Game Difficulty      3/5

Medium difficulty. I completed all puzzles on my own except for the last puzzle which are my least favorite kinds of puzzles. I am sure others can look at it and solve it easily in a few minutes, but I was working on that thing for a while and really did not have the patience to figure it out. Thank goodness for the help of that Juju coin though.

Overall Rating       8.5/10

I had a lot of fun playing MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans. I know my allocated points actually add up to 8/10, but I felt that because I really did enjoy playing the game, I would bump it up a bit, especially with the awesome visual and sound designs. A game really well made with fun and challenging objectives with great visual scenes and talented voice acting – I definitely recommend this game to everyone!

This game is especially good for:
Explorers/Adventurers (curiosity is your weapon)
Challengers/Completionists (Just beat the game)
Strategists (advanced thinkers who maximize profit and minimize loss)
Creators (collect resources and build your objective)
Socializers (lots of player interaction and engagement)

Do a little dance …

Get Down by KC and the Sunshine Band (1975)

Do a little dance
Make a little love
Get down tonight, whoo
Get down tonight, baby

Get down, get down

Get down, get down, get down
Get down, get down tonight, baby
Get down, get down, get down

 

I did my blog today with that song naturally coming into my head.  This 1975 classic was totally inspired by the dress I am wearing today! Just Because has placed out what I consider an iconic fashion piece from that time! For me this design is perfect.  NOW you are asking yourself, how do I get this dress.  Welp let me tell you .. UBER just opened and that is where you will find the dress.  But to let you know up front, in order to get the pattern I am wearing you MUST purchase the fatpack.  This and a few other designs are part of the pack which are other fashion staples in the decade! I love it.  I cant even right now with how much I really love this dress ♥

Also at UBER is the hair I am wearing! omgosh this hair is also what I considered 70’s inspired.  It fit perfect for the look I wanted to go with on the dress, I had several different looks in my head, but when I seen this on wall I was all like Austin Powers going YEA BABY Yeaaaaaa! … oh now I wanna watch that movie … gah!  ANYWAY back to the hair, this is a wonderful look and so many color packs to choose from.  I chosen the darker blond pack because I felt I got a little both worlds, natural looking blonds and the darker ones that border close to a brown color which makes me very happy.  AND you get roots! I love rooted hair.  Its one of the things I love most these days in the hairs.  This style does that perfectly.  So make sure you head over to UBER and get it ♥

Now, I wanna talk about the pose! I been on a kick lately when it comes to FOXCITY poses.  I been buying them up like crazy.  Now I believe this set was at N21 this round … BUT don’t hold me to that.  I am a bad blogger I know its okay you will get over it … or well you wont.  Either way, what is amazing about this set of poses is that natural breathing it has … yes this pose is animated, which is a lot like RL photography, your model doesn’t hold her breath till she is blue in the face while you get the perfect shot … Noooo she/he is breathing the whole time and you gotta get that great shot.  Welp, I did that in this.  I had fun watching my avi look like she was a bit more real when snapping her pic.  Now some of you might not like the moving aspect and that is okay she got you covered there are static poses in the pack too … so you get to enjoy not breathing … though why you wanna do that is beyond me .. I like fresh air and stuff ♥
