Before we get to the Meme: I am wearing New stuff from Collabor88. Skirt and Shirt separates from Tee*fy and skin from Glam Affair called Margot. My pose is from Marukin, also at Collabor88.

First SL Friend:
Christen Tristen. We hardly ever talk anymore but she was the first person to show me Elikatira and even gave noob me 200L because there was a sale going on. Very sweet girl who taught me a lot about SL when I was new.

First SL Kiss:
Honestly I don’t even know. I was a hussy back then!

A very poorly made table :/

First Encounter with a Linden:
I don’t remember this.

Collabor88 w/Cats!

c811

This month Collabor88 has gone “Kitsch” with a color palate that is perfect to chase away those winter drabs! I found a lot of cute in this round and sort of mashed it all together in the photo above. The couch and face vases are from Pilot. The couch comes as either adult or pg and has many cute couple animations. The table and prints are part of the offering from Lisp Bazaar and the crazy colorful cats are from Intrigue, all which can be gotten under one roof at Collabor88!

My Life is a Movie Soundtrack – Meme

incognito

Hey! Happy Saturday.

I felt like doing an oldie but goodie Meme and you can do it too if you want to share some of your favorite music with everyone. Its a fun Meme that makes you open up your music collection and think about what you life would be like if it were a soundtrack.

It was fun for me because some of my song choices surprised me but I really love doing things kinda Meme’s and seeing what other people come up with too. If you do this, I’d love it if you commented with your URL/Blog.

Belleza – Best Buys Mya

belleza

Happy Friday! Just wanted to do a quick post to show of this pretty discounted skin from Belleza.

Every first week of the month they have been doing a discounted version of their skin and you can pick up each one of these any any tone you choose for 400L each. It’s an amazing deal as usually their skins run about 1200L a piece. I love it when they do this and I get a chance to look pretty and get a bargain! The tone that I am wearing is the “Pale” tone and my favorite make up is the middle one. I just love the eyeliner.

I am also wearing newish hair from Truth and eyes from Ikon (Ardent eyes in Parchment) which you can pick up at the Boutique.

Spring is like a perhaps hand

a window,into which people look(while
people stare
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps

Things that piss me off- about or in SL – a Strawberry Singh Meme

petp

Ok, so I changed the title a bit. If you want to read the original Meme that the lovely Berry wrote you can do so here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/04/01/my-sl-pet-peeves-meme/

There are of course exceptions to this and some of this is just meant to be funny:

1. Right when I log in I like a few minutes to read notecards or look at group notices. There is a very short list of people to where this does not bother me at all but if I don’t know you too well it’s going to annoy me a little.

2. When people misspell my name as “Silvia” or when strangers call me “hun, sweetie.. etc.” especially if you are someone that is wearing a system skirt with 2009 Damselfly hair and bling or if you are a dude with basically anything “Gorean” in your profile or your wang is exposed or any combination of anything I mentioned, basically you are gonna get muted.

Speaking of wangs and such.. why do certain guys deem it necessary to IM you out of the blue with shit like “Y U SO SESSY for me.. giv me a BJ girl..” Yeah let me get right on that.

I also hate it when people downright lie about their gender. There is no need for that.

3. Flickr groups: Please don’t paste me your awards, I don’t want them. I don’t care if you saw my image in the “Big Booty Bitches of SL group” I do not want your big ass tacky gif in the comments. Please GTFO. I love regular comments though and when you comment and favorite or comment or favorite my Flickr Photos it makes my day.

4. My current annoyance is with a store that I just went to recently. I do not want to use your almost all white HUD with no contrast to where I have to squint my eyes to the point of pain just to shop with or deposit money so that I can shop at your store or get a million folders for your demos and then try on said demo and realize you have to buy everything else separate and there is not even a demo for that and if there is I don’t know how the fuck to find it. *takes a deep breath* Shopping in SL should not have to be so stressful.

5. When you are just sitting there minding your own business and a group IM pops up and you close it and it pops up again. WTF is that? Or when someone IM’s the group and asks for a LM or when you tell someone the name of a store and they say LM? Why can’t you use search?

Anyhow, take what I said with a grain of salt if you made it this far.

Dreaming of Beatrix Potter

bp

I did a previous post of The Noble Storybook but I returned this afternoon after having done the post and I saw new things to fall in love with all over again. I was so excited about doing the post and taking the actual pictures that I missed some details. I think this is going to be one of those sims that I can return to many times and find something new each time. That is the beauty of the world.

I looked down on her desk and read: “There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.” ― Beatrix Potter

bp2

As I was walking around the second time I was thinking a lot about Beatrix Potter and It was cool to think about walking around in her home, touching her desk.. sitting in her chair, warming up by her fire and smelling the ocean as it wafts in through the open window while listening to the music of birds. It was quite inspiring for me. I have missed that “wonder” of Second Life where you can feel like you are in a living breathing replica of the real thing.

I am wearing a dress from e! that is new and from Fameshed as well as the brand new Truth hair that is also from Fameshed. Jewelry from Cae, shoes from Gos Boutique and skin from Glam Affair.

The place is changed now, and many familiar faces are gone, but the greatest change is myself. I was a child then, I had no idea what the world would be like. I wished to trust myself on the waters and the sea. Everything was romantic in my imagination. The woods were peopled by the mysterious good folk. The Lords and Ladies of the last century walked with me along the overgrown paths, and picked the old fashioned flowers among the box and rose hedges of the garden.”
― Beatrix Potter

The Noble Storybook

storybook3

The Noble Storybook, is a sim unlike any other I’ve seen in Second Life. They say that Second Life is “Your world, Your imagination..” But what Aaliyahblossom Resident and her RL and SL partner, VonDutch Sweetwater have created is so much more than just any sim design concept.

As a child I remember these little books that my grandmother would read to me by Beatrix Potter. I loved the covers of the books and the names as well. They were magical to me just as this sim is.

The premise of the sim as taken from the notecard is:
“We tried to create the atmosphere of where she lived, where she wrote, where she created and where many of her tales were situated. You will find her small cottage on the island, the lake, the forest where Peter Rabbit and his siblings adventures took place. And many more figures of Beatrix’s stories.

But also little spots to relax, enjoy the tranquility and take pictures, take a boat to explore the island by water.
You will find the Nobles Cafe near the Beach where frequently poetry evenings will be held, book discussions and live music.”

storybook4

This is a place that is filled with a loving atmosphere and heart. I’ve never seen a more lovely family than the Noble family in SL who welcomed me with open arms to explore the sim and attend the Easter party that they had last night and even join the family. My SL has felt like it was missing a few pieces but something warm and welcoming touched my spirit yesterday. Vondutch Sweetwater & Aaliyahblossom Resident have created a world here of wonder, this is easily one of my favorite places on the grid.

The Noble Storybook is a magical place indeed.

This place is very friendly to photographers and explorers alike and there is a house that is a bit farther back that is the private home of the family. The rules are pretty simple and if you would like to rez your own props you can contact a sim manager. The Sim Managers are: Poorlemon Resident, Masterpixel Resident, Brie Pinazzo and Maddy Carissa.

I’ve tried my best to catch some good angles to show the beauty of the sim but I worry that my photography skills are lacking to show how resplendent this place really is. The best way to see the Noble Storybook is to visit this sim yourself. To find your own inspirations and dreams here. Maybe you will catch a glimpse of Beatrix herself laying in the tall grass or sipping on a warm cup of tea in the cafe? It really is your world and imagination here, after all.

What Next @ 2013 Pose Fair!

bikes

If you haven’t been to the Pose Fair yet, here is another reason why you should give it a visit! What Next has put out some adorable props and such for couples or a couple of friends! This is one of them and I think it’s really adorable.

The pose comes with two bikes that you sit on with a friend or in my case an alt and it appears that you are holding hands while making a romantic bike get away.

The only thing new that I am wearing (that I have not before blogged) is this dress from Mon Tissu with Peonies on it that came out yesterday. But my hair is from Truth, my shoes are the Lolita’s from Gos Boutique and my skin is from Izzies. The Malt is wearing some Fate Wear and a sweater that I got him at the Men’s Department. The House in the Background is from Happy Homes.

!Bang & Pose Fair 2013 is open!

easter

Hey! You! Yeah you! Guess what? Pose Fair 2013 is now open! You might wanna get your butts over there now before everyone gets home from work and pick up some cute poses like this one from !Bang who is in one of the larger stores near the landing point.

This pose is so cute and I was inspired today while walking around BlackLace and seeing these cute little bunny outfits for only 99L each for Easter. The hair I got was free from the Holiday Gift that I picked up today at Celoe. The skin is from Glam Affair.. it was the rare Arcade Gacha skin from December called “First Date” and the stuff in the background is from Tee*fy and its still at the Arcade for another day or so.

Pose Fair first though: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Solace%20Island/132/133/26
