Tee*fy for Fifty Linden Friday

2n

I kinda love this dress from Tee*fy for Fifty Linden Friday and she is even selling a giftable version of it too.

It reminds me of something that Nan would wear on American Horror Story and I’m totally addicted to that show and this hair from Wasabi Pills at Fameshed makes me think about it too.

I’m also wearing skin from Glam Affair in Vera, eyes from Ikon and my pose is from !bang.

Bloggers I’d want to be stranded on a desert island with

Today is my seventh rez day and every now and then I like to do one of these kind of posts cause I think it’s a good time to give kudos to people that you admire now and then.

So what I’m gonna do in no particular order is list some of the bloggers in SL that I think are really cool, if I don’t mention someone I probably still think you are cool!

Cora Pomilio I love the way that she puts together her photos. I think they look really creative and classy.

Oakley Foxtrot Her pictures are breathtaking, cutting edge and unique. She’s got a freshly dark take on fashion and I like it.

Sophia Harlow There is a lot that I can say about Sophia but I’ve loved her blog for a long, long time and it always remains a classic and a go-to for me. She puts the sacred in fashion.

Maci Restless She’s the little miss fashion cupcake and I kind of adore her. She makes many different kinds of looks and sometimes.. I’m just like whoa.. where did you get that?

Sophee Mojo I love the way she puts her stuff together whether it’s fashion or home decor. She has a very nice style about her and I check up on her blog quite a bit!


Primrose Snowfield
Long before I knew her I liked her Second Life name a lot and it fits her blogging style. She is elegant, eclectic, and her photos amazing.

Eve Daines Yep, I had to put a kid blogger on the list. I’m a bit partial to this one as this is my god daughter but if you take a look at her blog and look closely at the photos you will be amazed! She has impeccable decorating and styling for someone so young!

Ziki Quest I love this blogger because she takes excellent shots of Second Life and gives me new ideas of where to go for blog posts and she just does it so well.

Magenta Devinna My beautiful, pink glitterific, super sweet and sexy princess. I’ve kinda always had a little blogger crush on her. I’m not sure what it is but her photos are always super styled and she has a certain magic about her.

and also.. this wouldn’t be a list without mentioning Berry, Luna, Felicity, Grazia, and Gogo.. Your posts, your time that you put into blogging SL, Thank you!

Lark at Acid Lily

Lark made a really cute little bow necklace for Acid Lily that opened some time this week and usually things are super inexpensive at the Acid Lily gallery so I bet you can go and steal this cute little necklace right now!

I’m also wearing a new cardigan and shirt from Deetalez at the Frost event, new hair from Truth and skin from Glam Affair.

All Aboard the Cocoa Express from Lark!

I’ve always wanted a train set just like this in any life and well now I have it. Thank you Lark!

The large track fits perfectly under the new Laq Decor Christmas Tree – which is what I’m using and it’s just adorable! I was able to fit the small track under the Apple Fall Christmas tree at the Arcade.

I just wanted to do a pretty dress up photo in this new dress from Rebel Hope that my friend Cae (who made the jewelry that I’m wearing and you can get it right now at the Jewelery Expo) gifted me for Christmas.

The pose in the first photo is by An Lar, and the pose in the second photo is from !bang. My hair is from Truth and my skin is the new Kaelyn skin from Glam Affair.

Hanging with Maci Restless

maciandsylvia

I first noticed Little Miss Fashion Cupcake – Maci Restless sometime last year when I was scanning the feeds for Gos Boutique posts, and she caught my eye with her unique styling and beautiful photos.

She had a way with her styling that I admired and well red heads always catch my eye, so when I had the chance to friend her on plurk I did and I’ve not regretted one single moment of it. She’s funny, she makes pretty cake pops and she’s a great friend in world. I can bounce ideas with her she is a super easy person to pose with. I was expecting these photos to take longer but Maci is a pro.. she just whipped this pose out from !bang and we got down to it.

She suggested that we wear the new stuff from Maitreya at Collabor88 and she told me that she was wearing these adorable new ear muffs from Noodles – also at Collabor88 and then I just put on my boots from Apple Fall that I got at Shoetopia in November and this oversized infinity scarf from Ison that is at Collabor88 right now too.

We took this photo at Small Town Green. You can rez if you join the free group. It was super fun posing with you Maci and I hope that we can do it again sometime.

Oh yeah, to see what she’s wearing, go here: http://www.lilmissfashioncupcake.com/2013/12/friendship-never-melts-away.html

Glam Affair’s Kaelyn Skin

1 copy

Glam Affair, maker of my favorite Second Life skin is about to release this beautiful Kaelyn skin soon. It comes with a few different freckle options, a few nose options and a few lips as well as a clean version that I have added above. In addition to the clean version there are 12 different make up options.

This is such a pretty skin.

I am also wearing a new Tableau Viviant hair called Snowfall which I’m not quite sure if it is out yet. The Bow charm necklace from Cae which is at Jewelry Expo and the new Spectral eyes from Ikon which are at Fameshed and they are simply the best eyes that Second Life has to offer in my opinion.

Four Years

year

The picture above is something that I’ve always wanted to do. I went through my photo stream and gathered my favorite close up shots and put them all together.

On this day December 11th 2009 I made my very first blog post. I’m kind of surprised that I’ve kept something like this going for this long. I mean I’m sure that there will be a day when I will be like.. oh yeah remember when I used to blog Second Life stuff?

It all started because my friend Marleen Vaughan teleported me to a lucky board and liked what I was wearing. That day she asked me to join her Blog Coffeesmoke and that is where I made my start.

She encouraged me and gave me a chance to voice my Second Life and in the process it’s been quite a journey. I am thankful for her.

In another 9 days I will have been in Second Life for 7 years. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing or what will even happen to Second Life one day. I guess right at this moment I can’t imagine not logging in and seeing my love, my adopted kid, my family and my home.

It’s crazy how much a part of all that becomes a piece of your heart that you never even knew existed but can’t imagine being without.

I’m especially thankful for my friends, the designers that make all of this cool stuff, the places that I’ve worked in the past and the people that I work for now, the events (especially Collabor88 and the Arcade) I’d list all of you but I’m afraid that I’d leave someone out and that is not my intention.

But you’ve all been part my journey here too.

I’m also thankful for giving Plurk a chance. I started plurk on December 14th 2009 but didn’t really use it for a year later. I’ve met some pretty amazing people that I wouldn’t have gotten a chance to if I never gave it look.

I really think that Second Life through good and bad is a wonderful place where you can make connections with people that you would have never even known about without it. I know that there is heart break sometimes but that is the risk that you take with everything that you do that is worth something, and even though this may sound corny.. I’m glad I took that risk.
