“Empty your heart of its mortal dream.”

The host is riding from Knocknarea
And over the grave of Clooth-na-Bare;
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away:
Empty your heart of its mortal dream.
The winds awaken, the leaves whirl round,
Our cheeks are pale, our hair is unbound,
Our breasts are heaving, our eyes are agleam,
Our arms are waving, our lips are apart;
And if any gaze on our rushing band,
We come between him and the deed of his hand,
We come between him and the hope of his heart.
The host is rushing ‘twixt night and day,
And where is there hope or deed as fair?
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away.

“The Hosting of the Sidhe” by W. B. Yeats

I have the distinct pleasure of doing this collaboration with Mirubani Resident (aka Kuma) as part of Blogger & Vlogger Network‘s Secret Santa Swap. After taking a look at her blog, I knew we were destined to do this collab! She’s kawaii, pale and loves pink, which means she’s top peeps in my book. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did creating it!

A lump of coal for the naughty #SecondLifeChallenge

Santa can totally leave this lump of coal as my Christmas present! {egosumaii} is looking out for all us naughty people with this completely adorable Bento animated coal pup for PocketGacha. The commons are holdable and the rare is a shoulder pet with texture HUD, but only one can be worn at a time. Pleeeeeeease be sure to try the demo before playing, though, because the pups may not work with all shapes and sizes. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!

And since I’m on that naughty list, I am going to look fabulous and own it! Violent Seduction offers the fabulous Circe lingerie at this round of KUSTOM9. The bra comes with three different cup styles and a fur texture HUD is included. I highly recommend getting the fatpack because this is definitely the outfit you want to be wearing when the police arrive to reveal your rich husband has died. ^.^

Going up?

I’m sure it’s become quite obvious that Jihye, owner of AsteroidBox, is my favorite blog collaborator. Why? Because she’s gorgeous, dahlings! So when I got my Powder Pack and set up my avi for a shot inside Taikou’s amazing elevator at KUSTOM9 and she logged on, I IMed her to join me in the shot! She’s perfect, I’m a small potato. ♥

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

fuck this! My first Christmas-y post!? I’m still rollin’ in the Halloween groove and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and already there’s a Christmas-music-only radio station and decorations are going up where I live. CAN’T IT WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER AT LEAST?!

Nope. No it cannot.

So enjoy if you’re one of those people, and check out The Forest – Winter Wonderland sim. Ride the tour train until your Christmas heart is overfull! I’ll be in the back grousing like the Grinch I am. ^.^

“When autumn leaves start to fall”

It’s that time of the month again! No, not that time. POWDER PACK TIME! So get ready for some amazing skins and other mesh head enhancements. Also wearing new shoes from AsteroidBox. available at Shiny Shabby. They are male and female versions, and there’s a sock HUD to change patterns. As autumn is upon us, I had to hit up Enchanted Isle for their seasonal scenery, and I was not disappointed. So without further ado…
