MISS SL 2018 Recap

Hey guys! I hope everyone is having a happy June so far. If not, there is still time to get this month off to a great start 🙂

On Saturday, May 26, I attended the MISS SL 2018 Grand Finale. MISS SL is a Second Life pageant where contestants compete in elaborate runway and photography challenges. The finale lasted 7 hours. But with 15 finalists styling for three categories (National, Victoria Secret, and Formal) and answering questions by the judges, this was to be expected.

About halfway through, I decided to do a blog post on the event because I was blown away by what the finalists had come up with. If you want to see photos of what the contestants wore for the challenges during the finale, you can check out Melinda Bayn’s Facebook album. I believe you do have to be her friend on Facebook to see the photos, but they are indeed worth it!

Savor the moment

Today was the next round of Miss Virtual Diva 2018. When around lots of beautifully styled women, one simply cannot look like a frump. Even if you are not going out on the runway and getting evaluated by judges, one must always look her best whenever she steps out the door. Even when you are wearing jeans, sweatshirt, and a pair of heels, always look fierce. No, today was not a jeans kinda day.

Powder Pack Catwa April 2018

Hey guys!  I am going to do something that I haven’t done in a while – do product reviews! I did a few for Luxe Box, but since they closed down, I moved on to Powder Pack. I have always wanted to try this subscription box, but since it’s not in the budget to consistently pay 3k L a month for these boxes, I had to choose. Now, I bought the pack in February, but I still haven’t opened it (don’t kill me lol), so I decided to do something big for this next pack.

What I am wearing is not really important – i just have on a robe from Pixicat and hair from Stealthic. The makeup that I am wearing is not from Powder Pack, it’s whatever I had on from before…I think the lipstick is from Amara Beauty. The ring is from Chop Zuey, nails are from the Maitreya hud.

Finding that constant amidst the chaos – ways to get back centered

There seems to be something in the air lately. I have seen a lot of bickering among friends – the most recent on social media. And as I talk to the parties involved, and seeing how stressed out the parties are, one word goes through my mind. Why?

I have had my own share of issues, and the feelings that ensued I have not felt in a while, since my RPG Mafia days. In those days, I learned how to work under high pressure situations, because literally things that you said or did could and would result in the end of your game character. At the same time, when I used to read back on old logs and such, I realized how high-strung I was (for me, anyway). I felt like I had to walk on eggshells with some people, because they were a bunch of drama-filled people who were miserable or had no lives outside of the game. The last major interaction I had with one of them was when she second-guessed my RL education…that it “didn’t make sense” to have the degrees that I had. And I was always on the defensive – outside my circle of friends, I always had to watch what I said or else someone would get offended and that could set someone or something off. That and more was eventually why i left that community.
