Chop Zuey – Sub Umbra Floreo

What happened to Second Life Wedding Expos? It seems like in my earlier years in Second Life, some organization saw to organize one every year. I even took pictures at a fashion show for an expo once. You got to see a number of dresses (which can come in handy when you want to know which stores make nice dresses), decor, jewelry, and the like.

I checked out a few wedding venues to see where I could showcase this latest jewelry set from Chop Zuey. I still think the best venue is the one that you create for yourself, but hey – I could be wrong.

Ghee at the 2016 Hipster Fair

Have you been to the Hipster Fair yet? If not, today would be a great day to visit – take advantage of the extra day we have today, and do some shopping! Ghee has a nice range of hipster and indie styled clothing for under 200L at the fair. So if you are looking to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe, you can accomplish this with a pair of boots, a colorful scarf, or patterned pants.

I am wearing the Carrie crochet tunic, which is exclusive to the Hipster Fair, and only 75L!  I paired the Etta gray boots and gray Hipster scarf to go with it.

Are you a Second Life fashionista?

I decided to make a basic guideline of what you should have as a fashionista. For those who are in specific hobbies and occupations in SL, not all of the items will apply to you. I could talk for hours on each point that I have mentioned here. My point in making this list is if you don’t already do or have these things, get to it! If you already do, feel free to share this with someone.

Fabulously Free no more

Update 11/06/15: I just saw yesterday that the FabFree inworld group as well as its blog will still be available. Check out this post from them to learn about the upcoming changes to the group.

I saw on Plurk yesterday that the inworld group Fabulously Free in SL was closing. Even though I had left the group some time ago, I still feel sad about it closing. Why, if I had already moved on from it, you ask?

When I first started Second Life, I was a shopping fiend…at all the freebie malls. I had started getting into joining groups, and one day I saw someone with a Fab Free group tag activated. I joined the group, and I found so many quality freebie items. Like, they just put the item in the group notices for everyone to get. The generosity of the designers blew me away. And for those who didn’t put items in the notices, there were landmarks to their shops to get their gifts. Fab Free introduced me to many stores in Second Life, when people had no problems going to the main store to shop.

 

I had taken this picture in July, and didn’t know how to incorporate it until now. Go figure…

Do you have an About.me page?

Hey guys! I know this topic comes up every so often. But due to the growing use of social media for Second Life, I feel that it’s still relevant. It can also serve as a reminder for people who have it, and forget to update. So, what is About.me, and why should you have a page?

Make a personal page and inspire people to connect with you.

About.me is a place where you can list all of your social media places in one location. In addition, you can give basic as well as background info on yourself. This comes in handy because with so many places that SL’ers hang out, I sometimes lose track where I have actually joined. It also can be a way to deter impersonators from stealing your online identity. If it’s not listed on about.me, then chances are the “new” account is not you.

This first second is a brief intro to who I am. What I like about this is that people can see my latest blog posts, and click to read them if they so choose. And at the bottom section is a list of all of my social media sites lol. I have more for Monica than I do for real life – fact!

The second part is one of the more recent additions – the backstory. This is optional to fill out, but it provides a history of sorts to what you have done in your life.  In SL I have two resumes – one specifically for fashion modeling and one that covers my general activities, including blogging. This info comes in handy when people want to know your experience – even if it’s just how many feeds your blog is on.

There are ways you can interact with others through complimenting. You can send a number of compliments to show your interest in a person’s profile. Also, you can put people in collections. I have several collections that I add profiles to from time to time.

If this sounds intriguing to you, why not come join me on about.me? If you already have an account, perhaps now is a good time to update your information.

Hot and humid days can be fun

Have you ever been outside when it’s hot and humid outside? It can be pretty down right disgusting – you can cut the humidity with a knife sometimes. And I have noticed for the past several years, places of business have cut down on the amount of air conditioning that they use. Even on mass transportation they have cut down, which to me is not a good idea when hundreds of people use it daily.

 


I decided to head down to Ghee because they have a new VIP gift out. Since it was nice (and humid) outside, I decided to take a picture near the fountain that is located near the store. Then, I felt some wetness on my arm. Don’t tell me it’s about to rain….and I don’t have an umbrella 😦
The rain did provide some relief to the heat, but I still wasn’t satisfied. Figuring that I would be wet anyway, I decided to stick arms and face into the water. Don’t worry about me – Bea and Warm assured me that the water is clean…I won’t drink from it just in case *winks*

 


Ghee has a few older group gifts at the store. Last time they had a group gift, I wore this lovely dress out to the beach. So you may want to stop by just in case you missed out on some of the gifts ^^

Saying Goodbye to L’Arc en Ciel

I had first heard of L’Arc en Ciel when someone showed me the following photo on Flickr:

LiArc en Ciel closing - Second Life

Wait…what? How did I miss out on something so significant, that many people seem to know a lot about? I read the comments on why the sim was closing and it made me feel sad and annoyed. Too many people take advantage of the fact that someone (or some people) allow people to visit their personal space. I can say from experience that many people do not read written instructions, but when they are told it’s in the rules, they generally apologize for not reading.So, I decided to make a trip over to L’Arc en Ciel before it ceased to exist.
