Second Life Made Me Learn!


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!

Wow the stars must be in alignment because I am blogging twice in a week! Oh no what has the world come to! Lol!

Anyway I am a bit late to the party but Strawberry Singh put up a challenge/meme. http://strawberrysingh.com/2015/02/23/second-life-made-me-learn-challenge/

So basically the meme/challenge is about what you’ve learned from being in Second Life professionally or personally. Lets get started!

What I've Learned

  1. WordPress – This has to be the very most important thing I’ve learned from my time in Second Life. Before coming to Second Life I had never blogged before. Now, I can blog like crazy.
  2. New cultures and Subgroups – With Second Life, you can get exposed to a lot or as little as you want. I joined Second Life wanting to know everything. I ended up learning about cultures I never would have dreamed about and types of lifestyles I never would have imagined.
  3. Modeling and Photography – Well this one I still learn more daily about still but I learned how difficult modeling actually is. Granted, you can pose yourself in a number of ways but sometimes the photo will not come out right unless taken from the right angle.
  4. Styling and Fashion – What I love about Second Life is in a way it has its own fashion path. Yes, a bunch is influenced by current real life fashion, but, some isn’t and it is lovely. I’ve always kinda been the basic clothing kinda girl and now I think I’ve learned a few tricks and tips about fashion.

What I've Learned

So what have you learned?

What the heck am I wearing? Well lets go top to bottom. (If I were standing haha) My hair is from Exile called American Woman. My eyes are from Ikon… promise eyes in feldgrau. My skin is from Nar Mattaru… the Zoe skin in 03 tone. Eyelashes are from Mon Cheri and called falsies. My body is from Maitreya, the lara body. My tank top is from Blueberry called Nicole. I am wearing it in purple. My leggings are an omega applier from ViVi. They are the Cecile stirrup leggings worn here in black. My boots are from JD (Just Designs), called Neva and worn in sand color. My shape is my own creation and a culmination of 7 plus years in Second Life.

If I Die Young


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
So I came across Strawberry Singh’s blog today and she had her death meme up. Here is mine.

Do you ever think about dying? I do. I think about how I’d prefer to die and where I think I’d go.
How do you expect you’ll die? Hopefully peacefully in my sleep.
Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I go back and forth on this. I do believe there is some place souls go after they die but after that I am conflicted.
What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? Uhm… none? But if I had to choose I’d say the utopian route.
How many times have you cheated death so far? Once. I had food poisoning so bad I almost died.
Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? Damon from Vampire Diaies
If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? I’d do all those. Preferably haunt my murderers until I receive justice then go to heaven/hell/wherever.
Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? There is always so much to do.

If I Die Young

Doing this meme made me think of how Liliana would die. I always figured she’d die young. That made me think of The Band Perry song called If I Die Young. So there is my bed of roses and I am dressed in satin.

sink me in the river

If I die young,
bury me in satin.
Lay me down on a,
bed of roses.
Sink me in the river,
at dawn.
Send me away with the words of a love song.

Behind the logout: Liliana Aluveaux (Monday Meme Challenge)


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
Ever wonder what Liliana Aluveaux does after her stylist logs off? Well… I snuck on an alt to find out!

I found her on the Baja Norte sim riding one of my BioBreeds ponies! Liliana loves purple so of course she chose the purplish one.

It turns out that while she loves being a model for me, when I log off she just enjoys horseback riding! Not to mention, she also prefers not to wear make up. Comfy clothes and barefoot for her!

Well I might just have to make her more comfy for a few pictures!

Want the look? Shop at Wasabi Pills, Pink Fuel, Erratic, Isil, SLink, and of course Biobreeds for a pony like this one.(Beware, you’ll have to breed yours in hopes of getting this color scheme)

Autumn Meme


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
I’ve taken a few Fall photos and I checked out Strawberry Singh’s blog. Her challenge for this Monday is about Autumn.

Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not?
– Yes actually. I love the crispness in the air and it is just cool enough that you can be comfortable outside. Also my birthday is in fall.
Do you call it Autumn or Fall? – Fall
What kind of weather does your area get during this season? – Usually cool and rainy weather. However this year we’ve been having random days of 80/90 degree weather. Go figure.
Which color do you always associate with autumn? – Orange
Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? – I haven’t been to too many so I cannot say.

Surreal. Challenge.


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
Strawberry Singh did another cool meme challenge. The theme for this challenge is Surrealism. You think it is gonna be so easy and then you actually attempt it. Then you realize it is quite hard. I tried a few different windlights before I finally settled on two. Which one is better? I like both for different reasons. Thanks to Designers United… I was able to make a look! Go there and shop for the awesome!

Memeception aka funnies


Greetings Fellow SL Lovers!
Strawberry Singh of http://www.strawberrysingh.com came up with a new meme for this week. Memeception. You have to take a RL meme and translate it into SL. She talked about Ermahgerd not being done so I did my best to do it. Loosely related to the original meme, here it is!

I am just beyond scared and laughing my butt off. This was awesome!
