Tonight, one of my friends and I were talking, and she said this to me: “April showers bring May flowers”. I have always heard that phrase thrown around (especially with April’s crazy weather), but this was the first time it held a different context.
You guys have been to sales for 50 L Friday, right? If you haven’t you are totally missing out. Pixicat has this cool jacket, and I don’t want to take it off ^^
The Boho Culture Fair is back! This is the 6th year that it has been running, and there are gifts for people at the fair. I must go back there later…
Today I have some awesome items from Ghee to show you all. The Ditsy Floral Romper is exclusive to the event, coming in graphite, lime, navy, port, purple, and spruce. Each romper comes with a texture hud that allows you to make the top and bottom solid or print.
Hey guys! If you haven’t been to the ForMax fundraiser, you have until October 10th to attend.
What is the ForMax event?
This event is to help raise money for the owner of Rustica, Maxwell Graf. He told people through his social media about what he was going through, and to please buy items from his inworld and marketplace stores. a number of content creators got together and organized this event to further help him.
I hope you will all stop by and see what you can do to help – every linden helps 🙂
Hey guys! Can I just say that the Aurora outfit from Prism is just awesome?
Besides the bodysuit and wings, it comes with the sparkler lights, as well as an ambiance light that you can wear so that the rainbow colors can reflect off of the suit + wings.
Hey guys! I think I may have to start blogging in the mornings because otherwise I cannot stay in this hot room for long to get much of anything done…smh.
I saw on Facebook a video that Crista Wellens had made regarding the state of fashion modeling in Second Life. It is the first episode of her venture into vlogging, and I thought it started off with a bang. She makes a statement in saying that “modeling as we know it in Second Life is dead”, which is enough to stir up some emotion in those who are professional models in SL.
I was challenged by someone to do a reaction blog to this video, so…challenge accepted!
Hey guys! I took about a week after I was able to get back into Second Life to look around the place, and to shop! I really had fun for the first time in a while, just shopping and buying what I wanted. Some items I saw on social media while I was away, and others I discovered after I had came back.

Pose: (old pose from them) Dare
Location: KOWLOONS GATE REBONE
I wanted to take my time and ease myself back into my routine because I realize now that September & October were pretty much me operating on burnout mode. I never want to feel that way again – so many things to do, and not enough time to do them all. Even my friends tried to tell me that it was just too much happening. Certain activities suddenly required a lot more focus and attention than I was accustomed to, and new responsibilities quickly ate up my time. Now that I am back, I have noticed that I can get my tasks done a lot more quickly. I think in 2017 I will look into planning some scheduled breaks so I don’t reach that level of burnout again.
The pictures that you see today were taken at KOWLOONS GATE REBONE. I had fun exploring the area – felt like a real life Chinatown in the city.
The outfit that I am wearing is from Flowey. I got it from this month’s C88 round, as well as a few other items. A trend that I have seen lately is that designers are making fitted sleeves for the mesh body. For those who know me, I like to wear Slink hands/feet with the Maitreya body. So when designers do things like make shoes that rig to the foot and leg, I have to switch to Maitreya feet. I have not done this with the hands…I find that if I can’t make myself fit into a Slink size, I will just not buy the top.
1. Bento hits the grid
I admit that I haven’t demo’ed any of the Bento heads yet, but when I do it will most likely be the ones from Catwa and Lelutka. A number of people have gotten pretty good results, and as a result they are starting to look like themselves again (pre-mesh head). This is a good thing! I was tempted to get the Vista Bento hands, but I may pass. Maitreya is rumored to get an update soon for Bento, whereas Slink is still working on updating their alpha hud and body. In my opinion, Slink should had been on the forefront of Bento to get back some users that they have lost this year due to the increasing popularity of Maitreya. But we will see what happens next year with that.
2. Advent calendars
I used to love Advent calendars – I would find as many as I could and visit several places a day to get all of the items. This year I am only making an effort to visit two places – the one at KittyCats and the 12 Days of Christmas one at Chop Zuey. You do need to be in the Chop Zuey group though to get their items. If you are still looking for more places to find Advent calendars, you can check out Fab Free’s list.
3. Discord Designs
(excerpt from Flickr):
Hi… It’s Kalli… long time owner of Discord Designs in Second Life. I made hair, braids, dreads, beards and all that sort of thing with a degree of manic intensity from July 2007 through July 2014… although even then there was a definite drop in releases from late 2012.
So… here’s the deal… If you wish to see anything more from me, please come by Moonsong before the 23rd and buy something… Anything… to allow me to get through this month’s tier payment. I’m around 9K shy at the moment… so at the end of the day that’s just fifty purchases.)
I went there and was looking for a donations jar or something of the sort, but didn’t find anything. Not sure if I will have time to look for hair I may want. I might go back before the 23rd though. If you ever bought anything from Discord Designs or generally like what they have, stop by!
That’s all for now guys – happy shopping, and make sure you look for all of the good deals!
