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.

Spice

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

Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

I was so happy to hear that Apple Fall was the guest on The Gacha Show. He is one of my favorite designers in Second Life. The interviewer and audience had great questions for Apple. The chat log will appear on The Gacha Show blog when it is prepared. The show was informative and quite … Continue reading Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

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.

Saturday at the Beach

I feel like I’ve been blogging things on my beach a lot, but this time of year, I spent a lot of time here!  When I saw the Starboard Hammock by Consignment and Kuro at the round of Collabor88 that opened yesterday, I knew that I absolutely had to have it.  Then I saw this new version of AP.PAREL‘s zip tank at The Thrift Shop 9.0, which opened today.  I’ve already blogged a couple of other versions of this tank from its initial store release (which was mostly spring-themed), but this new version may be my favorite.  The shorts are at this month’s The Men’s Department, and were created by Modulus.  They’re rigged for The Mesh Project’s body, so they fit perfectly.  I haven’t been able to find many shorts that fit the body as well as these.  Finally, the flip flops* are brand new from FATEstep.  As with all of the FATEstep shoes, the Wilde Sandals include a HUD that changes them to 60 different textures.  These include sandy options, which is perfect for the beach. … Read the restSaturday at the Beach

A Loft To Call Home

6th Republic, an event that focuses mainly on industrial-style home and garden items, opened a couple of days ago.  It’s a style that I love, but that I don’t use all that often, but the items there were so inspiring.  I’d like to point out just a couple of the items that I particularly like.  First, the desk in the left part of the photo is from Stockholm & Lima, and comes in both an adult and PG version.  The detail in the desk is just extraordinary.  On top of that is a new decor piece from Apple Fall – the ‘Strength’ Fragment.  The bed and cello are both from a gacha machine created by NOMAD.  It has a total of 8 commons and 1 rare, so it’s not too difficult to collect the full set!  Finally, a lot of the miscellaneous accent items are from a new set by BAZAR.  These include the paper bag, the hanging bicycle, the clothing rack, the shoes, and the lamp.  The setting for all of this is a new studio apartment skybox by Pixel Mode that is just absolutely gorgeous.… Read the restA Loft To Call Home

Soak Up The Sun

Half of my sim is a beach area, so I’m always on the lookout for new beach accessories and clothing, and I got really excited when I saw the new Pool Floats from N4RS at this month’s round of The Men’s Dept!  I think it works perfectly just off the shore of this beach behind my home.  The board shorts that I’m wearing are from the same event, and are the Johnny Boardies from ::K::.  As an accent, one of the new summer colors of Lir’s Charm from Empyrean Forge is perfect, and comes from the new round of We <3 Roleplay.  The perfectly-summery hair is new from Damselfly at Dark Style Fair.  I can definitely see myself wearing this style a lot this summer! Swimsuit | ::K:: Johnny Boardies Homme Azure (at TMD)

Afternoon Stretch

It always seems like by the time mid-afternoon comes around, I need to get up and stretch a little bit to help myself stay awake and active, so when I saw the yoga/tai chi mat from Roawenwood at The Home Show 2015, I was pretty happy.  I’ve never found a yoga mat in SL that I was really happy with, but this one is definitely up there with my favorites.  I decided to wear items from a couple of current male-focused events to to today’s stretching.  My hair is brand new from Tableau Vivant and the pants are from Apple May Designs, both at The Men’s Dept which just opened yesterday.  The sunglasses from Meva and necklace from [Pumpkin] are both from Men Only Monthly, which opened in late April, but I haven’t had a chance to blog either item yet.  Have a great rest of your Wednesday! Pants | Apple May Designs Gym Pants (Red) (at TMD)

A World Below

I am proud to be an official blogger for the Fantasy Faire, and as part of being that, they have asked us to complete a series of blog challenges or memes that tie into the event.  Today, I’m doing the My New Shiny challenge, which is to blog about a store that you previously didn’t know much about.  I’m so happy to feature meadowWorks, created by Garvie Garzo!  One of the things that I love about meadowWorks (besides the exquisite craftsmanship in their sculpture) is the fact that rather than having the minimum of 2 Relay For Life donation items for the Fantasy Faire, they have a stunning [NUMBER], in addition to also having a Relay For Life “Gotya” (gacha) machine and a one-of-a-kind sculpture in the silent auction!  This scene features 4 different pieces from meadowWorks in addition to a lagoon rock from Mer-chandise Cove, plants from Cerridwen’s Cauldron, kelp from Balderdash, and rocks from Jammin!
