“내게 웃는 저 얼굴 좀 봐”

Let me introduce you to the nuggets! Jihye dropped down one of these hamsters, and I humorously commented, “You should put down 5 more and we’ll have hamster VIXX!” And she did it, naming each one after a member of VIXX. It’s creepy how the hamsters seem to channel their particular band member. Hyuk is particularly pushy; typical maknae. It’s been a few weeks since the VIXXsters have been roaming the platform, and we’re still not bored! Now on to blogging…

Merlific and Wicca’s Wardrobe have new items for your fashion needs! The Cora Nails are fitted for Maitreya and Vista Bento hands and have a HUD with different French manicure styles and comes with and without the jewels. The nails are different shapes, so that’s unique! Wicca has designed beautiful shoes with a very modern deco feel and a really beautiful tile texture with a color HUD. Be sure to pick up either or both items at their respective events!

68 Main is a new event (to me at least), and I’ve got some pretty amazing stuff from it in this blog. Zibska’s Airlia set of makeup and jewelry is a key accessory for any true SL fashionista. The color HUD insures you can match just about any outfit, and the style is delicate without being ostentatious. Serious eye candy here! And then [ west end ] offers a set of poses specifically for profile pics, so these are meant for closeups and encompass many moods. Be sure to drop by 68 Main and check out Zibska, [ west end ] and the other designers at the event!

[ west end ] Poses – Stroll On @ Cosmopolitan
“My parents aren’t home,” she said in a secretive whisper, leading him into her bedroom. He chuckled richly at not just her tone, but the blush upon her cheeks. He knew what she wanted. They’d been playing this game for several months, cat-and-mousing.

[ west end ] Poses – We Got Each Other @ The Chapter Four
It had taken a great deal of courage to walk him into her bedroom, knowing they were alone. Timidity took over the moment those eyes gazed at her, his need a tangible thing in that look. “Let’s take it slow,” he murmured, pulling her down to the floor with him. “I just want to hold you. You’re so warm…”

[ west end ] Poses – One Lazy Sunday Afternoon @ Cosmopolitan
As her body relaxed, his finger explored more of her flesh, where he could reach. He never touched her inappropriately, knowing she’d flee like a skittish deer flushed from a clearing by a strange noise. “You’re still cold,” she said with some worry, always concerned about his health. “It’s all right. I just take a while to warm up once inside.” “Oh. Okay. Well, stay close then…”

[ west end ] Poses – Swoon @ The Chapter Four
She likes the way his bandages felt against her skin. He said his line of work was responsible for the perpetual finger wounds requiring them being wrapped, and the tape was just part of his allure now. Electric trickles of pleasure awoke a bravery she didn’t know she had, and he soon found her pivoting to steal a kiss.

2017-09-08e_wp
[ west end ] Poses – All Roads Lead to You @ Cosmopolitan
He only pecked her lips sweetly, grinning when her face twisted in a frustrated pout. He gave her another one, and then another, but the teasing kisses only seemed to make her needier for his attention. Feeding off the residual bravery, she moved suddenly to straddle his lap, teasing his facial piercings with her fingers, intent upon taking the deeper kiss she desired.

2017-09-08c_wp
[ west end ] Poses – Nothing Else Matters @ The Chapter Four
He was greatly amused by the sudden bursts of bravado and he allowed her some moments of playfulness before turning the tables. Dropping back to the floor, he dragged her with him, chaotic mess of arms and legs until they settled against one another. “You were saying?” he taunted her.

2017-09-08a_wp
[ west end ] Poses – Drowning In You @ The Chapter Four
She smiled at his coy remark, but then her face smoothed out as she pulled her against his chest, resting her head over his heart. She couldn’t tell if it was his or her heart pounding inside her head. “I was saying…that I’m really glad you’re here.” His face lost its humor, blue eyes suddenly lambent with her heart-felt confession.

[ west end ] Poses – You’re Mine @ Cosmopolitan[ west end ] Poses – Kiss Me, It’ll Heal @ Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt
He moved with a speed that wasn’t normal and lifted her with an ease that belied his trim frame, and it was too sudden for her process those supernatural qualities before he laid her on the bed, following quickly. Was it going to happen? Now? She was nervous, and the blush consumed her cheeks and neck, but when his lips began to feather over her neck, instinct kicked in. She pressed her head back into the pillow and sighed deeply, with such contentment. Closing her eyes, she submitted her body to him without a word and, in her blind lust, failed to see the fangs elongating beyond his lips…

taketomi has released a new hair with four different styles in the HUD. It comes with the glasses, which help introduce the new k-fashion store (Holly Mill). And let’s take a moment to appreciate the phenomenal poses [ west end ] has been releasing recently. An upcoming blog will showcase a metric ton of couples poses, but the Mag Set – of which I’m using one here – is perfect for editorial images. Don’t miss out!

M.BIRDIE isn’t a new store, but it’s new to me. No matter how long you’ve been on Second Life, there are places you’ve never experienced, and I feel pretty craptastic that I’ve not be privy to M.BIRDIE before last week. BAD SHY! So I’m totally spamming this blog with M.BIRDIE stuff!

“Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.” ~ Ronald Reagan

I’M BACK! We survived Hurricane Harvey rather well. We only had power surges and never fully lost power. The flood waters never breached the street curb, and we only saw that high of water one day. Once Harvey downgraded to a tropical storm, though, is when things got dicey. We lost internet, but luckily the data network was available for us to keep track of what was going on around the area. Our internet is back up! And my family is very fortunate, but there is a great swath of Houston that isn’t as lucky. If you have means to help, please choose a charity of your choice to help many Texans recover.

I considered playing catch-up since I took this image before I lost connectivity, but then I said ‘eff it.’ I want to enjoy time with my SL friends without the worry of rushed blogging. God willin’ and the creek don’t rise, blogging will resume as normal. This blog image is rather appropriate, too, because I was in a state of calm and peacefulness when I took it. It reminds me that so much of life is beyond our control – like Harvey – and we have to face such situations with a sense of tranquility. I pray for such comfort for all those affected by Harvey.

So I’m in the processing of redesigning my blog since Toxxic Rhiannyr developed a new logo for me. Isn’t is fabulous?! So please forgive the mess and such as I get settled in.

It’s the end of August, so that means school is starting again. Although that time is past for me and I’ve got the student loans to prove it, I wanted to wish good luck to all the returning students with a themed blog post! My partner-in-crime Jihye (on the left) joined me and donated the backdrop and lockers for the shot, as well as giving me the adorable outfit from the summer’s Okinawa Festival, which sorta birthed the whole concept. As a funny side note, Jihye mentioned being confused because the locker gacha is called BTS GACHA and she thought Bangtan Boys rather than Back To School. LOL So BTS is the soundtrack for this blog!

So, without further ado, good luck and have hope, returning students! 화이팅!
