At the beginning of this month I turned Six in SL years. The day was almost overlooked, as it was only because I said the date out loud in conversation that it triggered the memory that the date seemed familiar. I have always been so incredibly proud of my time in Second Life, overjoyed by the experiences I have been a part of, and so grateful for the amazing friends and loved ones I have made.
So to receive an email from Linden Lab asking if I would be interested in submitting a picture for their website, just blew my mind. It is an incredible honor to be asked, because there are so many amazing and talented residents in Second Life, and that I could pose with Mel just made it even more special to me. Then the cherry on top was that Whimsy Winx
also got asked, and that just made it extra special.
Not only do I now get to log in to Whimsy everyday, but I also got to see once all the pics were put up, that the amazingly talented Strawberry Singh
is also featured with Winter Jefferson.
I am so happy to be amongst such talented people.… Read the rest
Evening all <3
A different post tonight, as some of you are aware I have been busy with a new series inspired by different people who use Second Life. The first For Absencen has been one of my favourite builds of all time, and the next one in that series For Lyla is in the works and I am so excited over it. I am on my 4th Mesh prefab release (Lyla and an Asian inspired cottage next up) so for my 7th I had a question.
What to do about prims? I have made the decision to upgrade key prim builds into Mesh on top of the new collection. The reason for this is twofold (a) some of those 250 odd prim builds will be less than 80 prims so I am liberating prims for people PLUS (b) to upgrade the textures to take into account the beautiful and higher quality way I can light / bake models and incorporate that into more realistic looking builds. I have always committed to free upgrades for customers since 2006 and I think as we all make this journey of adopting Mesh, upgrading the houses is my vote for Mesh!…

…So then I began to house-hunt in Real Life and dropped off the grid for a while… But I’m still dipping my toes in. Case in point, I logged in to find this gorgeous little number that might as well be a clubbing outfit, a bathing suit from Katat0nik. Cheeky! (Seriously, the arse is especially great in those swim suit bottoms. Wish I could find one half as decent in RL.)
And then, below, I played with the Polaroid Fun set from Miss Shippe’s Studio. She has a set of three different washes for your hud- or attachable-polaroid snapshots, and I like how it emulates Instagram/Hipstamatic. (I added the caption below using Photoshop.)
Enjoy your summers, y’all! Don’t get too serious!
Skin: Miasnow Skin 2012: Sweety in pale with auburn eyebrows
Outfit: Katat0nik (candy blue) Sailor Bikini with gloves

I'm always hungry for more mesh goodies. In fact...I'm
!! Haha...see what I did there? No, seriously, the new FaMESHed
for June is awesome!
I'm not really familiar with the store MONS
, but I'm happy they're in FaMESHed
this month! The Sha
top and the jeans from their Summer Love Collection
are just so sweet and cool for the summer. I'm actually not a fan of jeans that are different colors other than regular blue or black, but as soon as I saw these, I HAD to throw them on. Just lovely!
Oh! And you need to stop by SLink
! The Ilena
sandals are seriously my new summer staple. The BEST part? They are to be worn with the rigged mesh Barefeet from SLink
! So if you already have the feet [and if you don't, you SHOULD because they're fabulous] you just have to wear your new sandals. No having to tint more feet! So fab! If you DON'T have the Barefeet, you need to get them if you want to wear these sandals. I'm hoping this means Siddean is going to make more flat sandals for the Barefeet!… Read the rest
Whoa, it’s been nearly a year since I’ve written anything on this blog. What have I been up to, you ask? The answer is simple: I’ve been obsessing over cats!
Or, to be more precise, I’ve been breeding KittyCatS
If you’d told me a little over a year ago that I’d be a hardcore customer of a breedable pet company in SL, I probably would have laughed at you and then asked if you were high. I’d always thought breedable chickens, turtles, horses, dogs, frogsbirdsplantsfairiesdragonstigersandgodknowswhatelse were ridiculous and a waste of time, money, prims, and server resources.
So what changed my mind? A friend sent me a kitten one day, it was pretty random. I was still typing “NO DON’T SEND IT” in IM to her but I was too late; the inventory offer had already come through and a tiny feline was waiting to be rezzed. I set my new cat on the floor of my skybox and he proceeded to trot around, and you know what?… Read the rest

I was drawn to this dress after seeing Real Housewives star Heather Dubrow sporting her 99th outfit
with a white Peter Pan collar attached to it because it was a pleasure to see a dress where a Peter Pan collar made sense. This is a sweet and simple casual dress without the layers of lace and chiffon and sequins that she wears with her white collars. Don’t get me wrong. I like an unusual detail and fashion eccentricities, but when it becomes a schtick, people stop paying attention to you and pay attention to your gimmick instead.
