Hi…my name is Monica

Happy June, everyone! I can’t believe that summer is upon us…feels like the year is just speeding along. I think this month I will try to write more about what’s been happening with me – where’ I’m shopping, where I’m hanging out, and so on. After reading some of my older posts, it feels like I lost touch with that aspect of that part of Moni’s World.

What I wore today:

Meet Kismet!

Hey guys! I wanted to show you a skin that was created by alaskametro for Skin Fair 2016 – called Kismet. It is on the marketplace now with more appliers than what was available at Skin Fair.

“Blended handdrawn/photosource elements and optimized for mesh bodies and heads (but, you can also wear this on your Classic avatar!) “Kismet” comes in 8 skintones and features between 2-4 brow colours in a thick, natural style, plus 1 eyeshadow and 3 lipsticks. Freckled and cleavage versions included.”

If you bought Kismet  before the update and would like appliers for Loudmouth, Belleza, and Maitreya, just IM Alaska Metropolitan.

Hair Fair 2015 – My Picks

Hey guys! There are only two more days before the end of Hair Fair. Have you gone yet….twice…three times? It took me a while to decide what to get, and I told myself that I would only go there once to purchase everything. I’m not sure if that was such a good idea…I totally got a hair hangover afterwards (yes, headache and all lol).

So even though you will see other hairs I got from Hair Fair 2015, I wanted to
highlight these as well. I took these pictures at my friend’s studio, so that was a nice change of pace ^^

1. elikatira – Rayne

Loved the side playful ponytail on this hair.

2. Exile – Walking On Sunshine

This would take a bit to add this many curls to the end of the hair.

3. Vanity Hair – Never Wanted U

Nice take on a bob, would look great with highlights as well.

4. LeLutka – Dakota

Sexy tousled hair is always a plus!

5. Exile – Future Outcasts

This hair reminded me of Kelly Kapowski for some reason.

6. elikatira –  Brooklyn

Because Brooklyn…duh!

7. Analog Dog – sassafras

I am absolutely in LOVE with these curls!

Hey guys! As I hinted in my previous post, here is a list of stores & locations  that you should check out for the holiday season. It’s top to shop ’til you drop, but not lighten your wallet!

 

1. Glam Affair group gift (skin)

 

2. Curio group gift (skin)

I couldn’t find a picture from the designer, so here is a blog post about it: https://fabfree.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/boxing-day-means-shopping-so-shopping-ive-done/

3. Exile gift (hair)

https://carolineapollo.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/inspiration/

3. LeLutka group gift (hair)

They have several hairs – check to see which ones you get because they have old gift hairs out as well.

4. Chop Zuey gifts and group gifts (jewelry & accessories)

What I like about Chop Zuey is that they have women’s group gifts, men group gifts, and non-members’ group gifts. Because of the 12 days of Christmas, that’s up to 3 dozen gifts when you join the group. There is a group fee, but pretty much each item is worth at least the fee. Here is a sample of what they have:

 

5.  Analog Dog – gift (hair)

Analog Dog has several curly hairs for 0L – whole fatpacks. They are indicated by the green vendors. I believe the pink vendors are 50% off as well. I am not sure when this is going to end so better hurry over there.

 

6. Inspiration Hunt (clothing, poses, accessories)

Check out all the items that the hunt has!

 

 

7. The Twelve Days of Christmas ghee VIP Hunt (clothing & accessories)

There are some amazing items at the ghee mainstore. I couldn’t find photos of the items, but take a look at this blog here: http://debbiejasper16.blogspot.com/2014/12/do-it-with-style.html

Debbie also features the next store on my list…

8. Truth (hair)

…a cute Christmas hair complete with a red cap. Even though the holiday season is coming to an end, you can still wear it, or save it for next year ^^

20 Personal SL Questions Meme

Hey guys! It’s time for another meme, brought to you by Strawberry Singh. This one is a cool SL Q&A meme, where I answer a bunch of questions about my SL 🙂

When and how did you discover Second Life? I heard about SL in 2009 through a private forum for another game. We were talking about how the fashion in the game we were playing was lacking, and a number of people said SL fashion was much better.

Did you know about virtual worlds before or was this your first experience with them? Kinda, but nothing like SL.

Has Second Life met your expectations? Does anyone have expectations when coming to SL? That’s hard to answer, to be honest.

If you could teleport back to the first ten minutes of your avatar’s slife, what would you tell yourself?Make an alt, look up blogs based on SL, and tell myself how to get out of Help Island lol.
How long did it take you to master avatar flying and driving vehicles inworld?The only issue I had with flying was that I would sometimes get stuck in buildings due to lag. Road and water vehicles I think I have down; could use more work on air ones. How long? I am not too sure – wasn’t like that was a goal of mine or anything.
Do you have a mystery alt? My close friends know of any alts that I have…assuming that I have any alts 😛
Is your SL avatar a reflection of you, or someone you wished you could be?I feel like everyone’s avatar is a reflection of them to a degree, mine included. I wished I had some of the wardrobe my avatar has lol.
Is there an individual you met in SL that inspired you in your RL? How? I don’t think there is one person in particular who has inspired me in RL. But I do get inspired when I see people bring their SL creations and skills into real life. A magazine publication, a jewelry business, a new job based on SL designs, etc.
Do you feel it is easier to create stronger bonds/relationships with people you meet inworld as opposed to the real world?I feel inworld you have the opportunity to get to know a person from the inside out, which is a good thing. This is why I don’t believe in too much RL stuff the first time I meet someone – why should someone know my real name, see a picture of me, or hear my voice? I can do that in real life lol. I feel like it can be easier to create such bonds, but it is also just as easy to be lulled into thinking that you have a strong relationship when it only appears that way.
Did you ever imagine or believe people could fall in love with someone they never met before Second Life?Yes – I have seen it happen.

How has your perspective of dating changed (or not) since you started playing second life?I feel like if you really want a partner though, you will find someone. They may not be the right person long term but you can find someone for right now. I have had online relationships before, but it seems like SL is the hardest for me to find someone. I think it’s because there are so many things to do in SL, dating is not necessarily a priority, and I haven’t found anyone who shares similar interests with me.
How has your perspective of employment changed (or not) since you started playing second life? I think it’s great that people can actually make a living from things that they create virtually. It’s empowering that you can literally take matters into your own hands and make something happen. I have tried to do that in RL and it’s not as easy as some people make it out to be.
Name three things in both your lives that overlap each other significantly.Creativity, loyalty, and staying true to oneself.
If you could live your life more immersively in a virtual world, would you? (Kind of like the Matrix) On one hand, I think it would be great for education. In the Matrix, Neo spent hours learning how to fight in several fighting styles. On the other hand, if you spend all your time plugged in, what happens to RL social interaction?
How do you think behavior changes for people if they’re inworld vs in real world? Why do you think that is?Eh. People grow virtual balls and have a tendency to say things inworld and on social media that they would be hard pressed to say in real life. I dislike hypocrites, cowards, and bullies, and there seem to be too many around for my liking. It’s like…why choose to be mean to others –are you hurting that badly in real life?
How has second life consumerism changed your perception of spending habits, the value of money, the need to be “bleeding edge” with fashion?My spending habits are pretty reasonable, similar to real life. I try to get stuff that will last and add to my wardrobe, without breaking my bank. Sure I get fun, trendy things too but I don’t want too much clutter. I try to earn enough money in SL to cover tier so if I want to spend RL money for shopping, I can. Earning enough to cover all of my inworld expenses is a goal of mine.
Do you think virtual worlds like SL drive and redefine human interaction or do they narrow and limit it?I think they can do both, if that is what you are looking for. You can easily find a bunch of people who think the way you do, and get stuck. Or, you can choose to expand your horizons and grow as a person.
If technology progressed tomorrow to allow you to send emotions to people the way you’d send text or voice messages, would it enrich your SL experience or infringe on it? I’m going to be pessimistic and say it will probably infringe more than enrich. I can see a lot of anger projection or unwanted advances.

Name three skills you attribute to having learned or honed in second life alone. Blogging, Photoshop, and business management.
If your grand kids googled your Second Life Avatar’s name, would they be intrigued, disgusted, proud or something else? Not too sure – maybe intrigued?
