The Struggle is Real …

I am going to say that this was the most challenging head I ever done.  This is the new Vista head Zoe, that if you all caught the deal .. you could have bought the head and the AO in the same pack.  Personally I went for the AO, but upon arriving to the main store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that you could get an amazing deal of the Zoe head and Zoe AO all in one pack, and if you are a loyal shopper and use the members card you could get a heck of a discount!  Being that I am a loyal member the head was basically a free item for me.  This does depend on your purchases and how many you make, so not all can claim this items as in a sense “free”.

Now this is why I called this post “The Struggle is Real” I have had this head for weeks and while it did come with a shape and a set of skins in the HUD, none of them really fit my taste, no matter how much I played with the shapes and skin combinations .. I just couldn’t find something that would make this head my style.  I am not going to bash this head because frankly there are some really awesome things about this head that I cannot find in other heads, even by beloved head that I am always wearing.   The issue is not in the head its in the lack of skin makers for this new head and I can be patient, which is what happened.  I been all over shopping for skins that were advertised for this head except one place …

UBER! I went to Uber with my lovey and while we were shopping I seen INSOL … omgosh how did I forget this store makes awesome beautiful skins?! So I seen instantly it was for Vista ZOE and I was more than elated and completely snatched up this demo.  When I placed this applier on the head and then added the shape, it was like the light went off in my head and I wanted this look for my ZOE head, and I got it.  There are so many good benefits in this designer.  The Shape was completely free, in the pack, its modifiable and copy! Then on that the body appliers are FREE in the main store.  You have everything you need to make your Vista head gorgeous, like shown in my picture, I did not tweak the head shape at all.  All I did was make the body shape more mine.  But the head is completely untouched.

Now to not be a Debbie downer on my new head, I want to tell you what it is that makes me love this head.  The HUD for the head is so user friendly, I am in awe of it.  The emotions on it are top notch that honestly, I make this my favorite HUD and emotions over all others as of date.  The smiles fit nicely on the head, it doesn’t look over done at all.  I like the fun quirky like auto replay emotions too.  There are SO many of them to choose from.  So while I say this is a Struggle … at the end of the day, I am completely happy with my purchase.  It takes a little time and patience to finally find what you are looking for.  So if you struggled like I did … take a deep breath, and just give it time.

All the informations is listed below all the items in my picture ♥

Lets Go Sailing …

Hello my pretty people! I hope you are all having a wonderful day.  I am back again and showing off some amazing finds that recently came out! I think everything I am wearing is new in some way! So lets kick this off with my hair ♥ Truth has placed out this gorgeous style that is long and flippy.  Its beach worthy, and with the HUD you can change up the style a bit and how you wear it, all the way down to the color of the hair which are so many! You wanna collect this hair for sure.  Its easy to dress up any outfit with this hair.  You can grab this style in the main store now!

Now my sunglasses! I am very excited as this is another Cae collection.  These are called Lolita, and they are cute little heart glasses, that come with HUD as well so you have many colors to pick from.  The material details are amazing as well, with a little shine around the edges depending on your light.  This is a great addition for the girly in us that want to walk around with hearts in our eyes.  I am really loving the pinks in this collection, but like mentioned you can pick any color you want, and you can have the accents change colors too, so these are customize-able to match any outfit.

Speaking of outfit I am sporting the new Miss Chelsea clothing which you can pick up from N21.  This event just opened and there are cute things all over.  So this top and short set is sold separately and if you get the fatpack you get 50% off so I would totally take advantage of this deal as it means you are literally getting shirts/shorts for free when you buy them.  Who wants to pass up getting something for nothing?! Not me … so I totally grabbed up the fatpacks to both of these.  The shirt is a slightly opened front mid-drift type of shirt and the shorts are totally booty showing (Caleb wasn’t complaining – I doubt anyone would haha)

Last but definately is not least is the Apple May armband I am wearing on my arm.  I find that items like these tend to not fit my arms, but this is an amazing fit and looks gorgeous on.  You have a choice of Silver and Gold.  My personal choice is normally silver in the situations of picking.  I really loved how the light slightly reflected off the metal, I did add a slight beam to make it look more realistic in my pic, but seriously barely had to touch anything on this piece.  I am loving how its very spring like, the leaves look like ivy around the arm and it really looks like it would be something extremely comfortable to wear in the reals too.  This you can find at N21 as well a total need for the inventory if you like bands around the arms.  Great for all sorts of outfits! ♥

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 little Peep Show

This has been a interesting sort of month, it seems that myself and Caleb has taken to who can put out the sexiest picture! I love when he tells me that I inspire him to make pictures like he does.  My husband is all grown up now.  I found him when he was a closet Adult Rated person, he was all sorts of PG and now … he is growing up into … well lets not go there haha.

I got my idea for this picture off the items I am wearing, it started with the Vanilla Bae body suit! I seen this suit on the facebook when I was looking around for looks to grab some ideas and honestly, I was really wanting to do another naughty picture.  This suit is an open wide zip that just about lets it alllll hang out.  I got this from Lootbox, and there are several colors you can win and three different sorts of suits.  Closed, partial open, or what I am wearing.  There are other accessories you can win too, but I think I will leave that for you to find out by going to the event!

What better way to let it all hang out then to sport the new nipples by Session! These beauties fit nice to the skin and there are many options for you to choose from to get the colors of the nipple that you want.  There are two choices of piercing and you also have the option to not use them.  Personally I chose the rings.  The other option are barbells.  I really like the astetic that this looks gives me.  Even though the mesh breasts that are part of my body are nice, I really like the added look of more natural looking nipples.  If I am going to show off my body, I want to do it in the best lights ♥

Now onto my beloved Cae! She has knocked it out the park with a different accessory.  Cae is well known for her jewelry.  Now if you head on over to The Clique you can find the amazing sunglasses that I am wearing, but even better they are not just sunglasses, they are glasses too.  You have a choice.  BUT it gets even better.  At the end of my post you can check out the different styles.  There are 6 frame styles each turning into sunglasses if you want them to be. Now each of them are sold separate.  There is a HUD with each pair that will allow you to change the frame color so many pretty options to choose from!

Lastly is one of my new favorite staples in my inventory! TRUTH hair has collaborated with Lapoint Bastchild to make this gorgeous hair with a hat.  I really love it when a cap comes out with a hair made for it.  I always find it so hard to find hair for all the cute caps in the SL world.  So when I can find them like this, I become so happy! There are so many different colors of hair to pick from.  But I always love just getting the fatpack when it comes to Truth.  Now with the hat, there is a HUD that allows you to pick the design, and there are several normal colors too! So if you love wearing hats, this would definitely be one to make sure you grab up.  And its at UBER right now.

Okay I am done rambling, I think its time for you all to check out the credits and get the goodies, cause yea! They are amazing! You want them….go shopping and get sexier!

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! ♥

Who is that girl?!

WowWEE that is all I got to say for the dress I am wearing today! Do you see this beauty.  What I love about this style is that its almost a modern take on a older style dress.  But do you want to know the kicker to this?! Its a collaboration between mother and daughter in RL.  That’s right, JustBecause creator Annie, has been doing some creations with her talented RL daughter and transforming ideas into the SL world.  Now, most people don’t have an issue with what I am going to mention.  As beautiful as this dress is … what gets me is that while it flows really nice while you are standing still … when you walk the flow kicks up in the back.  That is not a total put off though, because I am loving on the design features, like the details where you can change the colors of not only the dress itself but the feathers and the belts! The fatpack itself has some really beautiful metallic colors too.  But I have to admit this blue was my absolute favorite.  The glitters on it gives off that “I am fabulous” kick too! So I do have to say there is more to love then to not.  Which makes this a total want in my book! ♥

I paired my dress with some accessories, CAE again …Yes again.  If you look at the bottom of my post you will see the necklace and earrings I am wearing.  The necklace is in a light blue to match the dress I am wearing, while I made my earrings black.  The HUD in the set allows you to achieve that perfect look.  A plus to this set is there is a MATERIALS look! I cannot believe how much of a difference it made to me when I was taking the picture.  I don’t know for some reason I feel like it has a more in depth look in the picture, even from afar! Woowza!  I even paired this with another item, that is by Blueberry and its from a past gacha but this gorgeous mask! I wanted to add a hint of mystery to the look and I got it just from the mask.  I felt it was fitting for the look ♥

I decided while Caleb is away, I would go look for a place to blog.  I found this really gorgeous 1940’s themed sim.  I want to say I was really apprehensive when I landed here, because the first thing I seen was a tower of freebies.  I was like whaaat.  But when I turned, there lied a bit BIG portal that you walk through that magically transform the sim into a really laid out sim that is detailed to the older times.  Its absolutely wonderful to explore, old cars, old posters, all the things that would make your exploring great.  Please respect the rules if you are going to visit.  I felt my attire was slightly themed if I was heading to the ballroom which is actually the building behind me … the outside was littered with these gorgeous movie posters.  It was a blast to check out!  So stay tuned you might see more from this sim in the future ♥

She said “Yes!”

Originally written by Caleb… but commandeered by Livvy (green text)

As soon as 2018 came, I asked Livvy to marry me (finally). Being the clever boyfriend that I am, I made her think we’d be spending our New Year’s together very casually (but also cozily in each other’s arms), just enjoying each other’s company as the clock strikes 12. Being that we were online most of New Year’s Eve together, I literally had to set up my proposal scene right in front of her. Thank goodness for AFK time!  (Livvy here: Yes finally … I have been waiting for this slow day to finally come to a head and happen.  But only because I love him so much, and I feel like queen of the world when he is with me.  Mind you this is our 2nd time dating.  Time was not a good factor on our side and we have grown and learned so much to finally come back to this day and be so incredibly happy!) 

My plan was to have our own fireworks display on our land, which is something we normally do anyway like on the 4th of July. So, again, totally inconspicuous. But what she did not know was, I planned to have my proposal show up written like fireworks in the middle of the lit sky when I was setting off in world fireworks.  (Ohh this is story to be told!)

Throughout the day, I distracted her with shopping adventures and a total season of Stranger Things. I had never seen Stranger Things on Netflix yet and after the first few episodes, I loved it. So we binge watched the entire season that night lol, which worked great with my planned proposal because Livvy would not think anything of it. We were comfy in our sweats, cuddling in front of our camp fire, Netflixing and actually ‘chilling’ like normal people.  (Mind you his Christmas present to me was the gorgeous dress I am wearing below, and it threw me off that I was not to wear this for my Happy New Year fireworks! This made me very curious as to what was going to happen.  And watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things was so totally romantical, because its our thing to watch shows together.  The fact he was so into this one just made me smile the whole time ♥)

When midnight came, I exclaimed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!” And she did the same as I proceeded to set off all the fireworks I had set up earlier. These were a mix between my MadPea Fireworks I had from 2016 as well as my {damani} – Fireworks deLuxe from back in 2014 lol. While we were smiling and celebrating our first New Year together, I turned off the transparency of my written proposal in the sky to let it finally be shown. The proposal said, “Will You Marry Me, Livvy?” in all cool sparklers effect to sort of blend in a bit with the fireworks.  (What he is leaving out here is that I didn’t actually seeee the message at first.  It was a blur in the sky, and I thought I broke my av for a moment so I zoomed in, thinking that I could totally fix it .. but that didn’t happen so I zoomed way out and it came clear what the message was and it confused me a bit because I was so not expecting this.  I hit the escape key and back to my av my camera flew and there was Caleb on one knee!!!!)

Will You Marry Me, Livvy | Mine & Yours

We have been on voice this entire time and when I heard her give notice to the image that was coming in for her, I got down on one knee, waiting for her to finally realize what was happening. I was proposing to her and I started saying the following to her on voice:

Livvy Fhang, I met you in 2014. Started dating you in 2015. We went our separate ways but found each other again in 2017. While together, you have made me an incredibly happy man with you back in my life. Ever since the day our paths crossed again, I’ve been smiling ever since… and incredibly in love with you. 2018 is here and I want us to start our new chapter together. I’ve been waiting for this day – this very day… the first day of the year, as I want to start the new year with you as mine in every way. Livvy… will you do me the honor of letting me be your husband? Will you marry me?

(He totally made a typo in that proposal … but I am not going to share it because it should be perfect the way he wanted … even if he wasn’t nervous, I still say he was, that voice that he loves to think was sooo confident I could hear the slight shake, but shhh, he was all man when asking me everything)

While I was telling her how much she has meant to me and how happy she has made me, I could hear the happiness in her silence as she listened. Yes, her silence has a voice – just like how you can hear someone smile… or choke back feelings of elation… or even tears of happiness. I was beaming the entire time and then as I finished my words, a resounding, “YES!” from her lips. My goodness how happy it made me to hear her say that… and how happy it made me to hear her happiness as well.  (I mean I waited a really long time to get this question from him.  Then again he is so slow with things, always wanting them perfect.  Though we were a bit backwards in how we did this.  Most of our plans were already planned minus the asking part.  Which most couples dont do until asked?  But we arent your average couple, we are us and we know how we tend to work, it was a matter of time before it happened anyways.  And he did it in the most perfect way.  I am just impatient and always will be. How he deals with me and still put a ring on it … amazes me! 

I love this woman so damn much (I love you too, baby). I can’t wait for so much many more moments and memories to share and create together. Happy New Year, indeed! We’re engaged! (And I am not letting go for one moment, you are stuck with me!)

Up Close and Personal

Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!! But now that the Fall holiday is over, Caleb and I are putting out the winter things.  Being that time flies so fast in SL we are building our winter wonderland. So the snow is coming out, and the Christmas stuff is coming forward.  And I have some really great little up close items for you to check out this post! Did you know that Tannenbaum has opened?! So excited for that! If you go there, you will find so many cute things to decorate your homes, land and even yourselves with! Some thing for everyone I say.  This is more on the accessorizing side of things for me this post.  Hence why I am up close and personal.  Festively speaking I am wearing so many great things.  Normally I tend to forget to blog my make-up … or maybe its because I dont wanna share … who knows with me … but this time I am really sharing because its IZZIES! and honestly, I really love her makeup … actually most of the makeup I wear is from her so if you see it on me and I don’t mention it … yea, its prolly Izzies, cause for me its the best ♥ Now The eye makeup and the lipstick set are both at Tannenbaum and they are shimmers and glitters which makes me happy.  Sparkle like the snow … yep I said that dreaded word … SNOW! Its gonna be falling soon … or maybe it has been falling on you already.  But its coming … WINTER IS COMING! (GoT reference for my nerds).

While at Tannenbaum make sure to get the jewels from CAE! Yes, I am blogging Cae again … uhm because I wanna and I stilll love her stuff.  And I will own it all.  But let me tell you about the cute Holiday items.  There is a cute Christmas Tree earring set.  I am in love with these. I believe there is necklace in the set too, but I didn’t wear that one because I wanted this Reindeer one on my neck right away!  Its a cute little circle charm with a Rudolf cut right in the middle.  I say that because my gem is red! And its the nose of the reindeer.  But yea, this is so cute and I have a ton more in the Tannenbaum collection of hers to show next.  So keep a look out for that.

Okay so UBER opened.  BUT I am going to tell you that I didn’t get this hair from UBER … because I tested my skills at one of the many perks of the VIP TRUTH group.  I tried my hand at telling a little story to the Group Moderator of the group.  Once in a while they ask a question and you submit your answer.  This time it was WHAT WOULD YOU DO (IN WORLD) WITH UNLIMITED LINDENS? and I won the prize, which is the new release in the fat pack.  I really enjoy this hair because it can be worn in several different ways, thanks to the new Style HUD that was created.  Also on that with all the endless color options its perfect.  Its a great holiday if you are looking for a dressy casual look! If you are looking for this hair though, its at UBER!

Now my last item but one of my favorites too! Is my sweater ♥ Just Because has placed out another adorable item! This sweater is perfect for the holidays too.  I wore this in the orange for our family Thanksgiving dinner.  But being I am blogging the upcoming holidays the green was a perfect fit for the background look I was going for. That and I think its a beautiful color.  Like always I love the little details from the way the sweater looks realistic and the way the buttons are placed.  It shows the care that the designer has placed into their item and that makes me want it so much more.  While I do blog a lot of Just Because .. its because I know that she places lots of care into her items.  So I am proud to show this brand and other brands like hers! ♥

Can’t a Girl get Ready?!

Hi everyone! All I wanted to do was get ready for an event that me and Caleb were going too.  I was rushing trying to get my earrings on and find my shoes! Caleb on the other hand found it rather amusing to follow me around and make faces.  Can’t a Girl get Ready?! I swear that is all I was thinking in my head.  But for real though I love Caleb and when he does the faces it makes me laugh, the whole time I was trying to be serious.  He is lucky I choose this picture! Because really there is a good one I caught of him looking all constipated haha, that or he farted either way.  But I am nice and just calling him out instead!

So you might be wondering what is happening.  Our daughter was nominated for an award that had to do with poses.  We are so proud she got nominated and wanted to celebrate with her, so we are getting all dolled up and getting ready to head out.  I am wearing the stunning Just Because dress called Tracy ♥ I am in love with this style of the dress.  Its the perfect kind of dress that you do not have to over accessorize.  Some earrings, and a bracelet and you are good to go.  The strappy area works around the neck leaving you to not have to wear a necklace.  Then when going to the bottom of the dress, its a diagonal cut that is just perfect for showing off the right amount of leg and still be modest (still wear your panties).  What I love the most about this dress is the detail, the way it fits the body, how the little wrinkle lines go in all the right places.  And the color choices in the fat pack are fabulous! Its a must have for those that want to go out and be a little fancy.  You can pick this up at the main store.  (Perfect for the holidays)

So my post for the day is really short and sweet.  I wanted to share this new dress by Just Because.  Like I said at the main store so head over and check it out! On that make sure you look at her whole store because the clothing is just amazing.  I have a nice collection of her designs and if you are lucky you can catch the collection she makes with her RL daughter.  They are adorable designs.  ♥  Read the creds below!

Hearts in the Dark

Hello everyone! Have you been to Epiphany? If you aren’t sure what this event is .. its a gacha haven where you can gain all sorts of amazing products.  BUT this one is different.  How you might ask? Well If you have many extras you can rez them, and turn the prize in for points.  With these points you can get exclusive items for stores that you love.  So, I am wearing the items from Apple May.  I was so excited to get this leopard set with the rare glitter skirt!  But what I love the most are the ears! It’s giving me the complete and total meow feeling. This set comes in so many different colors and designs. This is a great set to mix and match with. You can achieve many different colored looks.  So make sure you check it out.

My next find was at the event Tres Chic.  Foxcity has done it once again! I mean her poses are totally amazing. But here lately I been finding that her items at Tres Chic have come with these lighting projectors.  This round the set has come with red hearts.  You must purchase the fatpack, but trust me it was super affordable, and you get 7 poses and their mirrors.  Which to me is amazing.  I find that her poses are amazing for the mesh body.  So far has been on my go to list for single poses.  So make sure you head on over to Tres Chic to check that out and her main store for even more amazing poses.

So yea, this is a short and sweet post.  I wanted to get this out there before these events close, I am really bad at blogging items that are in events, or I do them at the last moment, but not this time! You have plenty of time to go check these out still. ♥
