Say It First


I never feel like this
I'm used to emptiness in my heart
And in my arms
You're not what I'm used to
You keep me guessing with things that you do
I hope that they're true

'Cause I'm never gonna heal my past
If I run every time it starts
So I need to know, if I'm in this alone

Come on baby, say it first
I need to hear you, say those words
If I'm all that you desire, I promise there'll be fire
I need to hear you, say it first
Come on baby

Do your worst
I know you'll take me higher
So come on darling
If you love me, say it first

Say it, say it, say it
Won't you say it to me
Say it, say it, say it
Won't you say it to me

I know you're right for me
But I'm waiting for everything in your world
To align with my world
I think of you while I sleep
I dream of what we could be if we grow
Together unfold

Just a Girl

Receiving an acceptance to blog for On9 was a dream come true, I’ve been applying to blog for this event since I started blogging 3 years ago you might say it was on my bucket list. Yes, bloggers have bucket lists and I don’t typically talk about my bucket list because I don’t want to jinx myself, but seriously I couldn’t be more thrilled to blog about this event.

On9 opens in two days, January 9 and runs through the last day of the month. I’ve been visiting this event for years and what is unique about it is the way the discount works. Designers set out items for sale then pick one that is reduced at least 20%, they don’t mark it, they don’t tell you, it is your job to figure out which items is reduced. It’s pretty cool.

Les Sucreries de Fairy was the first to put out a blogger pack and as soon as I opened it I ooh’d and aww’d over it like a little girl. This adorable gacha includes 24 commons and one rare, they are modifiable and OMG so cute. I started with adding one to my picture and the next thing I knew I had four of the items included.

Fifty Linden Fridays is over now and if I hadn’t been such a slacker I might have gotten around to sharing this before it was over. I got so many awesome things from the Fifty Linden Friday sales I could help but share them. I’ve also included items from a brand new gacha from Nomi and Bee Designs, some older gachas from Tres Blah. I went a little crazy on the clutter but Adalynne and Veronica are proud of me for it *giggles*.

This gorgeous jewelry set is from Cae, it includes all three earrings meant to be worn separately but I added them all and moved them to make it look like I had multiple piercings, they are resizeable through the HUD and include 3 metal colors. The necklace is also included and the HUD also has 3 metals and 18 gems. You can get yours at The Chapter Four right now.

Sometimes I have nothing I want to talk about, sometimes my head is completely stuffed with things and I don’t know how to talk about them. Last night I received a blogger invite from Vanilla Bae and this morning I woke up to a rejection from another group. I was really hoping to get that one but like I told another blogger when she posted that she wasn’t good enough, sometimes it’s not that we’re bad at what we do it’s just we are not what they are looking for at this point in time. It’s words that I am trying to live by this year, not taking rejections so personally.

Among the many rejections I’ve received lately, I was very fortunate to receive notice that I had been accepted to blog for Vanilla Bae. I had never blogged anything from this store before so it was a long shot at best, but they must have seen something they liked in my style and let me join.

I am so honored and I think I am going to have a lot of fun with this designer. Vanilla Bae has a line of strippable clothes, there is a script built in that allows you to control the amount of stripping and if you are of the D/s persuasion you can give you Master or Mistress complete control over what and when it is stripped.

This comes with 4 wearing options, fully covered, one breast bare, both bare, and stripped to your waist. You can also fully remove your clothes and wear nothing but the lovely chain that is sold separately. This jumpsuit is available in 9 color packs, containing 3 colors each, materials on or off, fit for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza Isis & Freya. If you just can’t decide on one color pack get them all in a fatpack.  You can pick this up at Cosmopolitan right now until January 13 and don’t forget to get the optional chain as it does complete this outfit!

Fifty Linden Friday is happening now and among the amazing creators in this round is Besom. This hair is so cute and it was perfect to protect my modesty a bit. For 50L you get a regular fit and a breast fit and 7 color HUDs. It’s truly a steal for 50L you do NOT want to miss out on this hair.

I’m kind of in love with this skin. From 7 Deadly Skins, this skin is available in 8 skin tones with a freckled and non-freckled version. There is also an optional shape that will be for purchase and the whole set is based on the LAQ MoCap mesh heads. I chose to wear it on my Lelutka May with a shape from West End. The skin will be available on January 12 only at 4Mesh.

When this backdrop first came out I really wanted it, it along with another backdrop I desperately wanted was both rare items. RAMA has their gacha machines available on the Takatomi/Burley sim and so I decided to try again. I didn’t get it and I teleported my friend Maxe over, he seems to have a magic touch with rares and sure enough, I now am the proud owner of both backdrops I’ve wanted for so long!

I love the poses created by Reve Obscura, I did apply to officially blog for him but I kind of did out after the blogger call was done so I’ve been sitting in limbo for what feels like forever. Maybe someday I can blog him officially but until that time the poses are so inexpensive they won’t break the bank at ALL.

Sometimes the words I want to say are better left unsaid, sitting firmly in my mind, pushed to the back of my brain to ponder on at another time. When this happens, however, I don’t really know what to say, what to write about. The thoughts swirl around my brain but they are better there than out in the open.

Designer Showcase is starting in less than 2 days and when it does you can head on over and pick up this fabulous dress from Jumo. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and standard fitmesh. It includes a HUD with 25 unique textures and a stunning pair of earrings that resize on touch. This is full-length gown and is just gorgeous.

When you buy the body skin HUD it comes with plain, beauty marks, mild freckles, and heavy freckles. This skin is based on the LAQ bento mesh heads but I am featuring it on my Lelutka May.

9 to 5

I am dedicating this post to all the hardworking designers and bloggers in Second Life. There has been so much back and forth lately, mostly on Facebook and some on places like SL Secrets, that I thought it’d be nice to remind people that what designers do isn’t easy, nor is what bloggers, at least the ones that are in it for the right reasons. It seems to me that there are people who believe what designers do just happen, that there is no work to it. The truth of the matter is they have to think of a design, create it in a 3D meshing program, rig it for umpteen bodies, look for imperfections, upload it, texture it, box it, price it, make vendor ads, and sometimes they do this all on their own. Some designers are lucky and have a team to help them with aspects of the process but most are not.

Bloggers don’t have to create the items but what we do is just as difficult, picking items from various creators to put together in a showcase that make the designers look their best. It takes time to style, build a scene, pick a pose, take pictures, edit, and then create a blog no matter what time of blog you do. Yes, there are some bad apples out there but not all of us and we should all be respected for what we do individually not as a collective. The last time we check we are human not The Borg.

This decor set is what actually inspired this entire post, the decor, outfit, and writing. Paper Moon is at Gacha Guardian with Creator Burnout. This set includes 10 commons and 2 rares plus an awesome Gift of the Guardians. I love that the rare laptop shows reminders about setting up for events, photoshop, a 3D mapping program, and IM popups. This is truly the life of a designer, always thinking, always creating, all the while trying to have some kind of life. It is not easy and a designer should be respected for their craft.

The group is free to join and this skin comes in two tones and is made for Catwa only, I’m showing it on Catwa Catya. It also comes with a shape and although I don’t know what head it’s made for it looks pretty good with Catya. The shape is modifiable but I left it as is to show you how it looks out of the box. You do have to buy the body skin appliers separately if you don’t already own them.

Powder Pack has changed up how they do things starting with the new year. They will rotate the Lelutka and Catwa boxes every other month. This month will be the Lelutka pack and can be pre-ordered for 1500L. If you wait for the release the price goes up to 3000L and all previous packs can be purchased at the full price as well.

The moral of this story is think before you complain, designers and bloggers alike don’t have it easy. Most of us do it because we love it, for some designers, this is their income, their livelihood and spread bad words about them without facts hurts their business. Talking badly about bloggers as a whole makes it hard for the good ones to get work. So just think before you speak.

Too Much Time on My Hands

It’s creeping up to the new year, time to throw away the old and make way for the new. I’ve decided that isn’t only relevant in real life and it’s time to create a new year, new you in Second Life as well. I’ll start with creating a new style of photography and blogging. I won’t stop writing I enjoy that part far too much. It is my intention this year to improve my photography skills, learn new things to help me get those spots that I want so badly. It’s time for another growth of Danni’s Dream. I hope you will all join me on this journey and offer constructive criticism when needed in the comments.

I’ve decided to take some help and advice from my very dear friend Adalynne Romano, she’s bossy and demanding and usually absolutely right. She poked and prodded, suggested and demanded, and what you see here is the end result of that. I wanted to blog this lovely sweater and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. I started searching through my blog groups to see what decor items were available and I found these amazing clocks from Plastik. Available right now at SaNaRae, which runs from 12/26 until 1/17, you can pick 5 individual packs of two clock colors or a fatpack that includes four special colors as well. I took my shot and wasn’t entirely happy with how little of the clock you could see, inspiration struck and I added some smaller clocks. These clocks are resizeable through the modify function to be able to fit them in your decor.

The perfect shot requires the perfect pose. It doesn’t matter how good you look if the pose doesn’t do it justice. Foxcity is by far one of my favorite pose creators in Second Life. I feel that Satomi does a fabulous job at bringing my avatar to life.

Now we get to the part where I have to really re-think my photography. As you may know, I tend to do a full shot then zoom in on my face to provide a closeup of my face. Sometimes the number of pictures I do is overwhelming, not only to my readers but to myself as well. It’s all about the angle and the zoom factor in Second Life.

Adoness very graciously accepted my application to become a blogger for her. I have used her hairs for YEARS, I love the funky styles that she produces and this hair, although older is still completely relevant. I love the curly, a-line style of this hair and how it frames my face so fantastically.

New Year’s Eve

2017 has been quite the experience, not only for myself but for so many of my friends and family. I can’t say I’m not anxious to brush the dirt of 2017 off and move on to new adventures and hopefully true happiness in 2018. I decided that it’s close enough to New Year’s Eve to post a blog about it, right?

When I first saw this new backdrop from Varonis I knew I was going to blog it. The formal, dark setting is just perfect for about anything. I chose to great a ballroom for my New Year’s Eve party. Available right now at Shiny Shabby this backdrop and is only 44LI. I was shocked when I went to grab it and found out it was only 199L, a steal in my opinion.

A new year’s eve party wouldn’t be complete without champagne, balloons, and more would it? I had seen a set from Chez Moi that was available for 50% off, I missed that deal but I found it in the Marketplace for full price and had to have it. This set comes with champagne cart, hanging stars, wall lights, and string decor. The champagne cart comes with animated poses for eating, drinking, and chatting built into it, there are single male and female as well as couples poses.

I went to Uber, only intending on buying the fabulous hair from Mina and saw this balloon set. Hive created it and it includes 4 types of balloons in three metallic colors.

I blogged for them when they first opened so it makes me a little sad to see this event go away. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass and is available in 5 colors. It’s just gorgeous.

When I first saw this hair I had to have it, I love updos. I have REALLY short hair in real life and even when I had long hair I couldn’t do a thing with it, so hair is an addiction for me in SL. Mina released this hair for Uber and it comes with a minimal style HUD that includes a bang and no bang options.

Since this song came out I have been waiting for a styling to fit the mood of the song and I finally found it with this post today. I’m completely addicted to this song and to top it all off I got a message accepting me as a blogger for The Makeover Room! I am so stoked about that, I love trying new makeups, skins, eyes and everything else and sharing them with my readers. This is a fabulous opportunity for me.

Today is the last day to get to the November round of Designer Showcase and when you’re there you can grab this awesome top and skirt set from Prism. This set is made for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya and comes with a HUD for 4 gorgeous silk colors. The skirt and top are individually colored so that you can mix and match them if you’d like.
