The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is one of my favourite book series of all time, so you can imagine how hard I fan-girled when this month’s round of The Seraphim Social opened up! I think the creativity of the items there is amazing (and I bought way more than I could squeeze into this…

With a Smile and a Song

Another round of Collabor88 started which, as always, means I’ve been emptying my virtual wallet for ALL THE CUTE STUFF! For instance, this adorable ‘Fluffy‘ dress is by Julliette Westerburg of Tres Blah and I love it a lot; it’s pretty and girly and fluffy and it makes me feel like some kind of romantic […]

Can’t Hang Around

A girl can’t stay in her picture all day – there’s shopping to do! Hello, I’m Chiana and I’m a shopaholic new recruit to your fabulous Seraphim team.

I have a huge weakness for unusual skins so I was delighted when I found Nuuna Nitely‘s store. This particular skin was just L$1 from the ‘Freebies and Cheapies’ wall and includes eyes to complete a very striking look. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making a return visit soon as there are other items I […]

Shoppin’ ’til mah bag cries..

I have to confess, this pic didn’t really turn out as well as I wanted – I’m still struggling with finding a balance between quality and what my graphics card will allow so it’s a bit of a slow process for me at the moment, given my computer keeps seizing up! I’d normally have retaken […]

Shoppin' 'til mah bag cries


Mine is space the futuristic fashion ;) The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own.

My Secret Garden: The Unborking

So, as I mentioned in my last post, this is not meant to be a tutorial.. I just thought it might be interesting to share some of the experiences I’ve had with SL photography: problems I’ve encountered and the steps I’ve taken to resolve them, that sort of thing. I’m calling the category ‘Things I’ve […]

My Secret Garden

It’s been a busy couple of weeks of updating my inventory and generally re-acclimatising myself so it’s taken a little more time than I planned to get another blog post out; I’m feeling much more ‘with it’ now so their frequency should increase – I certainly have a lot to share! While I’ve been discovering […]

My Secret Garden 1

Back to the Drawing Board

It’s been 8 months since my last blog post and, although I’ve missed blogging terribly, it was a much-needed break. I haven’t been well in rl and in my time away I’ve realised that trying to blog all the things! (and attempting to build) had become somewhat overwhelming. I was so weighed down trying to […]
