Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product … Continue reading Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

What Will You Be Doing This Halloween?

Halloween has several types of people. The expected ones come knocking on your door looking for tricks or treats, preferably treats. They hope to find someone sitting at home to hand out the treats. Then there are those who will get dressed up in their best outfits and go to Halloween parties. Of course, we … Continue reading What Will You Be Doing This Halloween?

Can You See What’s Between My Legs?

You won’t believe it but I am wearing a skirt panel with these skirt/leggings. I was skeptical at first because I remember the horrors of big blocky chunk prims in the past. With ambient occlusion turned off you cannot even see the mesh skirt panel as an add on at all. All of these shots … Continue reading Can You See What’s Between My Legs?

I have seen this quote before and wanted to share it with all of those who need to see it. I hope it makes your … Continue reading Butterfly Whispers

Does Dog Watching Make You Feel Uncomfortable?

The Arcade has arrived in Second Life. I’ve stocked up on too much stuff as usual. After trying to sort my gacha goods I decided to go for a walk in the village. Since the weather has gotten cooler it should be nice out. There I spotted some pumpkins for sale in a little wooden … Continue reading Does Dog Watching Make You Feel Uncomfortable?

My BoOgErS are Safe Now

My BoOgErS are safe in the yard now that I have finally put up a gate at the beach house. In the package you also get a darker version of the same style. The main part of the gate is 4li and each fence extension is 1li. Windsong has this gate in several different themes … Continue reading My BoOgErS are Safe Now

For Amy

Amy Nauman was 26 years old when she passed away on Thursday, May 21, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer. You may have known her as Scarlet Chandrayaan in Second Life. She was the owner of Alouette, a wonderful home and garden store. I didn’t really know Amy that well, aside from taking her picture […] The post For Amy by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

Going to the Beach House with my Boogers

Hanging out at the new Dust Bunny summer retreat on this bright summer day. I love the feel of the sun on my skin. Warmth is a feeling that makes me more comfortable and at ease. The cold of winter is very difficult to deal with. Luckily in Second Life it can be whatever season … Continue reading Going to the Beach House with my Boogers

So I made the Most Wanted list

I was really just minding my own business. Logging in and shopping for nice things to wear or to decorate my place with. It is what I do now a days. Then it happened just like that. I was at The Arcade and ended up with Intrigue Co. putting me on the Most Wanted: Oldbie … Continue reading So I made the Most Wanted list

Today is National Donut Day

Today, June 5th, is National Donut Day in the United States. Free donuts were given out at Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme. Several references were made to Homer Simpson and his love of the donut. We have donuts to celebrate this day right here in Second Life. From the current round of The Arcade is … Continue reading Today is National Donut Day

Tahitian Picnic

The Multicultural Menu is a brand new annual event that opened on the 1st featuring food from 6 different regions of the world created by some of Second Life’s best creators.  The Tahitian Feast gacha set by Kei-Spot fits my beach perfectly!  It consists of 7 commons, 2 rares, and one ultra rare with a pull price of L$50.  I have the whole set rezzed here except for one of the rares – the cooking pit.  I have it off to the right of what the photo shows, but I couldn’t fit it into the picture. In other exciting news, FATEwear released some new summerwear today!  The Craig hoodie* and Brian shorts* were released in a multitude of colors, as well as a color-gradient non-striped hoodie and camouflage-patterned shorts.  I really love the Craig hoodie – it’s something I’ve been looking for in Second Life for a long time now, so I’m glad that a high-quality designer like FATEwear made one.  I’m also wearing the new James flip flops by ..::ILLI::..Read the restTahitian Picnic

Midnight Beach Party

The Arcade is here!  The grid’s most popular gacha event launched yesterday with a huge array of machines by a multitude of creators.  Many of the creations are summery, which I absolutely adore.  Today’s post features items from Zaara‘s machine, “Goa Party”.  This set is a collection of clothing, accessories, and decor items with heavy influences from the party culture of Goa, India.  Maybe the shock of the set to me was that the fitmesh pants – which were made, rigged, and advertised for women – fit my The Mesh Project male mesh body almost perfectly!  I thought that the fit might be passable, but I’m shocked at how perfect it is.  The sunglasses, necklace, and bracelets are each only one mesh, so they’re extremely easy to resize to fit your avatar.  All the decor in the photo is also from that set, from the hut that I’m standing in to the posters on the walls and everything in between. … Read the restMidnight Beach Party

Lazy Sunday Morning

So it may not be morning or even a Sunday when you are reading this post, but this is what I imagine to be a very relaxing Sunday morning. The Lazy Sunday Morning set from Erratic at the Arcade this round has some of my most favorite pieces in a gacha ever. First is this […] The post Lazy Sunday Morning by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

This month’s Uber has some amazing goodies with its theme of “Spice” with most of them going towards a very Indian aesthetic.  I decided to combine a few of those (this photo features items from the event by N4RS, Zaara, Aria and junk.) with some pieces from Zaara’s gacha set from March’s round of The Arcade to create this cozy little corner.  Full credits are below!

A Lazy Tuesday

Uber opened yesterday, and I’ll be honest – the Indian theme isn’t my usual aesthetic, so I didn’t think I’d find much.  Much to my surprise, I walked away with quite a few things, and would have bought even more had my avatar been female because of all of the gorgeous dresses!  I still found some awesome things that ended up in my inventory, though.  For example, this shirt from Cold Ash, sandals from FLite, and hanging bed from junk. are all from the event.  I have this all set up on the back porch of a new home that I just bought a couple of weeks ago – Redgrave released it back in the fall, but I just changed to it.  I’m also wearing a bracelet that NOMAD released at Men Only Monthly that I featured a couple of days ago but that wasn’t really visible in the photo – this photo offers a much better angle of it. In addition, this is my first post wearing a mesh head!  I’m still pretty undecided on it, but I was surprised how similar The Mesh Project‘s “Classic” head is to my normal face shape – I just wish it wasn’t so pouty. … Read the restA Lazy Tuesday

Sand Shack

I love this little beach shack from [Fetch] that is at Home Show 2015.  It just seems like a nice open, airy spot to have a little relaxation on or near a beach.  I decided that the new bed, table, magazines, and rug from [ zerkalo ] from the same event would work perfectly in it, along with  a wall tapestry from floorplan. and a couple of pieces of ionic‘s cafe gacha at the current round of The Chapter Four.  I’m wearing a new shirt from BlankLine that is available at The Men’s Department as well as new Damselfly hair and Izzie’s glasses, both from The Liaison Collaborative, which opened today.  Shirt | BlankLine Heley Neckline Red (at TMD)

Lord of the Elephants

For today’s post, I’m back in the Pixel Mode Heights Studio Apartment skybox that came out a few days ago at 6th Republic!  It’s a great setting for this couch from bauwerk that it out for the current round of ROMP.  The couch has a wide variety of animations, including cuddles and adult options, if you buy one of the adult versions.  From the same event, I am also wearing the Cerberus Xing Carnal nipple rings in silver.  The jeans are a new store release from AP.PAREL that are currently also available at The Thrift Shop 9.0 at a discount!  My hair is a new style from Damselfly that is out at On9, which opened yesterday.  Everything else that I’m wearing is available from various events that are going on now, with full credits below.
