Some of my favorite blogs and bloggers..

Yesterday, Gogo asked What are your top 10 favorite SL blogs? Honestly I read a lot of blogs but of course we all have our own personal preferences.

This is my list in no particular order and I’ll give a reason for each:

Marleen Vaughan of Coffeesmoke: I love this girl, she is the reason that I even started blogging in SL. She invited me to be a part of Coffeesmoke and I was for almost two years before branching off to my own blog. Her posts are funny, real and non contrived. Her writing is top notch and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Also she started another blog called the Concerned Bloggers Association which is worth a look. She also has a shop called Vaughan’s House of Curiosities which is visionary, quirky and fun.

Caelan Hancroft of Simply Stylish Cae inspires me with her adorable face, curvy body and and well thought out photography. Her outfit combinations are amazing.

Grazia Horwitz of GraziaSL.Com I’ve followed this blog for a long time. Grazia to me is an icon in the SL Fashion community. She makes brilliant and sometimes daring style choices but she is flawless. Everything she picks goes perfectly together.

Strawberry Singh of StrawberrySingh.com Berry is awesome sauce. Just look at her blog and you can see why. She is a goddess, untouchable seemingly at first but actually refreshingly down to earth with a very sweet personality. I love her tutorials and windlights.

Luna Jubilee of Luna Jubilee.com This is another blog that I’ve followed for a long time. She has the amazing windlights for download too, blogger boot camp tutorials, and she started the very successful 52 weeks of color blogger challenge. Luna is a sweet, funny and wonderful person the times I’ve been lucky enough to talk with her or hang out in world and her blog is a reflection of that.

Gogolita of Juicybomb.com I love Gogo’s blog because she writes with integrity and she styles herself in some of the most adorable finds from around SL that I probably would not have been aware of without her. I appreciate her blog because she is honest, colorful and juicy like a fresh peach!

It’s only fashion is a collaboration blog of some of the best bloggers in Second life. My favorite being the ever wise and stylish Cajsa Lilliehook mixed with the fun and down to earth mother earth goddessness of Gidge Uriza.. there are many great bloggers on the It’s only fashion blog but I am partial to the both of them and over all it makes for a diverse blog with many tutorials and solid fashion advice.

Annan Adored of Interstyle Fashion. I don’t know her at all aside from finding her on flickr one day but she could be my baby’s momma.. maybe? Seriously her images are gorgeous and I love the way she puts together a photo. Her windlight settings available for download are great too.

Free*Style: I could not make a list like this without including probably the first second life blog that I’ve ever read. Free*Style is my favorite “freebie” blog and mostly like the first that I can remember reading. This blog helped me through my much more noobish days and this blog to me is top quality and worth a read for anyone from the basic new SL user to even the most advanced as there is always something new to learn.


Vaki Zenovka
of Insert Funny name here: She maybe blogs once or twice a month now but when she does its well worth it. Her images are stunning, evocative and eloquent. Her writing to go along with her images is equally as amazing. A very impressive blog, indeed.

Other blogs that I love: Not Quite Pink by Magenta Devinna whom I simply adore, Bouncer Criss of Pixel Phasion 4 Men has a wonderful Mens blog, Lysie Aristocrat of Barbie Does Sl and Lauren Minuet of Flirting with Fashion are all blogs that I love to read as well.

Now this list has variations here and there but don’t get me wrong I appreciate all of the awesome bloggers in SL but these are ones that I’ve chosen because I’ve either followed them for a long time or because I feel there are currently my favorites. So who are yours?

Stumblebum, Take two!

Happy Sunday! Stumblebum begins again for the second time and I’ve delved a bit into the goodies and what I’ve seen so far is just amazing! We have this Skybox from Honey, I’m home! Which is the cutest textured skybox I’ve seen in awhile and comes with eight different frames. I love love love this skybox it is ADORABLE!!..


We also have these rock star hair brush poses from !Bang which are so very cute. I can totally remember doing this.. running around with brush in hand singing my guts out to some Madonna on many occasion.

These glasses come to us from Intrigue Co. and I feel that they have definite “Star Quality” and of course this dress from Whippet and Buck called “The Talk” in the most beautiful shade of pink helped to complete my Stumblebum ensemble of the day.

I am also wearing hair from Catwa called “Amy-Lee”. Skin from Lara Hurley skins called “Mia” and brand new sexy leather and lace “Aphrodite” boots from Purrfect Ten. Ok bums, get out there and stumble!

52 Weeks of Color Round 2 – Champagne

Luna, I’m really going to try this year to keep up with your weekly color challenge. I love the idea of this group and was thrilled that Luna Jubilee has decided to have a round two of her 52 weeks of color. This week’s color is Champagne.

I found this skirt on Grazia Horowitz’s blog from Leverocci. I loved the pleated mesh skirt and the pearl color was a perfect compliment to the Champagne colored mesh silk blouse, newly released from Maitreya.

I’m also wearing one of my favorite new hairs from Truth, called Velvet with these adorable color change bows. My poses in this post are from !Bang by Miss Luna Jubilee. My boots are my old stand-by favorites from Gos.

Collabor88 Opens tomorrow on 8/8

So I’m very pleased to tell you that I was able to preview some of the amazing items that are to come at Collabor88 which opens tomorrow on 8/8. The items at Collabor88 will be brought to you by many different well known designers, so what I am saying is you will get some amazing items at lower prices. It’s win/win for everyone! If you still have not looked at the official blog it is here.

I am wearing one of the brand new hairs from Elikatira called “Breeze” that has the cutest part on the side, A brand new outfit by Ingenue and the skirt is named after one of my favorite bloggers ever, Miss Luna Jubilee. The Luna skirt is well executed and just adorable. In this photo I used poses by Marukin and I really like the way they are made. They are poses that did not mind that I am a bit of a curvier avatar.

I am also wearing Pink Fuel Skin in Elly and Maitreya Flip – Flops.

Petticoat Lane

Petticoat Lane is a newly opened clothing store specializing in beautiful and flowey feminine dresses and intimate wear brought to you by Katey Coppola also of Glitterati and The Kids Company.

In this post I am highlighting some dresses and a skirt and tank outfit as seen above that I think are lovely. My next post will show the Intimate and Sleepwear that Petticoat Lane has to offer.

The store is located inside Glitterati and the prices are very reasonable and come in an array of colors. I look forward to seeing what will come in the future from Petticoat Lane. I have listed the rest of credits at the bottom of this post.

Fashionable Bald (A challenge within a challenge)

One of my SL Resolutions is to do more of the color weeks from Luna Jubilee’s Color Challenge.. 52 weeks of color – This week is silver. I’m sure that you’ve all heard of it by now. It is a great challenge and Luna Jubilee really seems like a sweetie.

One thing that you might notice for this post is that my avatar is bald.

She is bald for a reason this week because one of the sweetest and most stylish women that I know may be soon sporting a bald look from getting Chemo this year.

Miss Shellbee requested for me to do a post showing a fashionable bald. She also wants you out there to know out in blog world that early detection is key and to make sure that you get those checkups.

I would love it if anyone who should happen to read this blogger or not do at least one post or look with a fashionable bald avatar for Miss Shellbee. I would be grateful if you posted the link here so that she could see them all if you should happen to join me in this. I love you Miss Shellbee. ❤

My outfit is sorta mix and match.. I've got a Silver Maitreya skirt on, a corset from the wonderful Secret Store by Maylee Oh. Maitreya shoes and lots of pretty bangles from Mandala. My skin is the new one from Illusory and the bald base is the Ava Bald base from Lelutka.
