21 Shoe Event – April Round

Hey everyone – welcome to the April round of the 21 Shoe event! As always, I am showing you what this event has to offer this month, because we all love shoes! This event is for 1 day only, so get to these stores as fast as you can!

For those who do not wear Slink feet, I am afraid this round you will be disappointed. All of the participating vendors this time around made their shoes Slink based.

Okay, so here are some facts and details about The Roma:

  • Land impact: 1353
  • Size: 115 m x 87 m
  • Recommended parcel size: 1/4 full region or full homestead
  • Materials ready ( but won’t be able to see those details in my pics)

  • Side patio with bar
  • Five fireplaces
  • Two large suites with anteroom, bedroom, and en-suite bathroom
  • Junior suite with anteroom and bedroom
  • Three large bedrooms

I took a bunch of pictures and posted them on Flickr, so go check them out! :) And then go check out the actual house – the price on the house is currently reduced, but it won’t stay that way forever!

7 Group Gifts in 7 Days!

indyra-grand-re-opening

Indyra Originals is having a grand re-opening of their mainstore. The new build looks great – it looks sleek on the outside, and on the inside it’s easier to look for what you need. There is even a lounge area where you can sit and cam shop! ^^

 

This is the group gift from Friday – Angeline in Blush color. Actually, I was able to pick it up just now, so if you hurry you still may be able to get this pretty dress. What is not shown here is the flower neck corsage. I can see myself using it in a variety of ways – don’t you just love accessories? :)

See you at Indyra’s!

Advice for Second Life Newbies

The Plastik – Flourish Outfit (Cailin Dress)

Hey guys! Finally I have a small break from rl classes, so I have more time to blog ^^ Two things for today – this awesome dress is part of the Flourish Outfit at The Plastik for 50L Friday. The second thing is that Berry’s latest challenge asked us to “List 5 pieces of advice you would give to a newcomer that has just joined Second Life.

1. Think about what you want to do in Second Life, and then go seek it out – don’t be afraid to look for new opportunities.

I think that’s a big part of why newcomers don’t get it – SL doesn’t have objectives; just those that you set for yourself. There are so MANY things you can do in SL, such as..

  • Shopping
  • Relationships
  • Families
  • Exploring
  • Music (playing or listening)
  • Dancing (or dancer)
  • Photography
  • Real estate (business)
  • Homeowner
  • Driving vehicles
  • Community Roleplaying
  • Friendships
  • Scripting
  • Services
  • Building
  • Designing
  • Fashion modeling
  • Adult activities
  • Machinima
  • Writer (blogging/magazine/newspaper)
  • Entrepreneur
  • and more!

No one should ever be able to say that they are bored if they are new to SL….it’s impossible! :D

2. Don’t get caught up in other people’s drama.

I’ll give you a clue – if someone has “No drama” on their profile, chances are they run into a LOT of drama. It’s a given that most people don’t like drama – it’s draining, and SL goes way too fast time-wise to get caught up in that. So if someone has to explicitly say that…chances are they attract trouble. If your circle of friends are fighting, always try to seek the truth and don’t take other people’s point of view blindly.

3. Read blogs, magazines, newspapers, videos, social media, etc about Second Life to learn more about it and to keep up with the latest news. Chances are you will discover something new, and can use it to your advantage. Plus, you will look knowledgeable to your friends, and they can count on you to keep them informed.

4. Get involved in SL by participating (work or volunteer) at a place of business or organization. I learned so much because of SL, and I was able to apply rl experience in SL as well. All of this boosted my confidence significantly.

5. Keep an open mind and positive attitude. Some people bring in their rl negativity to SL. Everyone has different experiences, so try to learn something from them.

Dance in Second Life Challenge

 

Hello everyone! I was out shopping with my friend and I got the idea to record us dancing in the store (courtesy of my friend’s dance HUD ^^). I was trying to think of how to do Berry’s dance challenge, and there it was.  We had just bought some pants from Vogue, and it put us in the mood to dance. By the way, we were also trying on skins off and on throughout the day so if anything seems mismatched skin tone wise, well now you know :P

I am not sure about the dance animation that we were dancing to right at this moment, but I know my friend has a lot of My Animation dances. I was listening to a Spanish dance mix while dancing, so I guess something like this song here would go with it:

 

 

 

 

With this challenge though I was curious on making an actual dance video, so I used Fraps and Windows Live Movie maker to do it.

 

Which dance are you sharing in the image/video and where is it from?

In the reggaeton video, it’s one of the reggaeton dances from My Animation (maybe 30?), and the hip hop one is from Studio 4D…urban 247. I remember that dance because a club that I went to a long time ago had their dances in the dance ball, and I was trying to see which dance it was. I spent hours trying to narrow it down because after a while they all seemed the same lol.

Which is your favorite dance in Second Life?

For a long time it was the urban 247 one…now I am not sure which one.

What are your favorite dance animation stores in Second Life?

My animation, There In Spirit, Studio 4D…sometimes I’ll check out Humanoid, Henmations, A&M Mocap Animations. I don’t really own that many dance animations…but I like browsing just in case they have sales.

Are you a frequent dancer in Second Life?

I dance at home a lot, and sometimes I might break out randomly in a dance when I’m with friends hehe. I go to clubs sometimes but not nearly as much as I used to.

Are you a frequent dancer in the real world?

Mostly at home nowadays. I remember for talent shows I used to help choreograph dances and the like, but I’m really low key now.

Hey guys! I kept over-thinking as to what I wanted to blog, so I just decided to take a photo of whatever I had on at the moment…lol. Lucky for me that I had just gone shopping the other day, so I look nice today :D

Unlike most of you guys, I tend to wait until the end of the month to shop at Collabor 88. This helps me with impulse buying, because I have more than enough items in my inventory to put together new looks indefinitely. I still think I bought a lot, but that just goes to show that this round totally rocked.

Starting from the top…this hair is from D!va, called Judy. I think D!va does awesome updos – the messy/sexy type that can be casual, professional, or romantic. The skin is from Glam Affair – got it in February during 50L Friday (I know, right! Such a good deal ^^). The eyeshadow is from Mons…I saw Carley wear it , and I bought it – it’s a strong look but I like makeup like that.

The outfit (blouse and pencil skirt) is from Fishy Strawberry, also from Collabor 88. The skirt textures are awesome – they have a nice shine to them, so I bought blue as well as black (not shown here). As for the blouse, would you believe that from looking at the back, the front would have a plunging neckline? I think not!

I think my favorite item that I have on are my shoes from ieQED. I haven’t seen shoes like these in SL, so I think they’re pretty unique-looking. And who can resist leopard shoes! ^^

Okay – that’s all from me for now! Happy shopping!
