Happy New Year Second Life!

Can you believe it’s almost 2017? I don’t know about you but I am SO ready to wave goodbye to this strange year. I had a very bumpy ride in RL but my Second Life time was a lot more chilled and successful!

Happy New Year Second Life!

In the video below, I talk a bit about my year in Second Life and about a couple of pretty awesome things that happened as well as talk about some goals I’ve given myself for the New Year which are as follows:

Buy a new house.
Self-explanatory really lol. I’m having bad lag problems on my land (hence no shadows in the video!) and textures are taking a lifetime to load and I think it’s the house so I’m going to be looking for a new place to decorate.

Give more.
I want to continue some of the amazing generosity I’ve seen on Second Life in the past few months. I explain more on this in the video!

Spend less.
This is practically going to be impossible but I NEED to try!

Stay in contact with friends.
I need to make more of an effort to spend time with people I’m close to instead of just logging in, standing on my platform and being unsociable!

Find new roleplay.
Whether this be a cool new sim or just finding new people, I’d love to get back into storytelling in Second Life either on my main or one of my character ALTs.

Connect with other bloggers/vloggers.
There are so many people I wish I could reach out to but I suffer from Social Anxiety and General Anxiety disorder which seeps it’s way into Second Life too. I want to try and push myself to talk to other bloggers and vloggers by commenting on more items and joining in more discussions on Plurk!

That’s it really! Do you guys have any goals for the new year in Second Life? Let me know and enjoy my rambling video!

Happy Christmas!

Hi Queens! Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas & a safe and glorious New Year!

Happy Christmas!

A day late I know, but yesterday was filled with all kinds of good food, booze & great times with my wonderful family. And it is Boxing Day in the UK so still the holidays!

As well as giving and receiving wonderful gifts in real life, I was lucky enough to give and receive them in Second Life too. Being a part of the amazing work Christmas Wishes on Plurk did this year made me very proud to be a part of this community and I loved spoiling my Secret SLanta!
I was also spoiled by mine too – check out the lush makeup I’m wearing!

Thank you, everyone, for making my favourite season just as magical online ♥

Now go eat lots and drink lots and have an amazing time!

Winter Love – FATE Hand Poser HUD for Bento in Second Life

Bento is LIVE! That’s right, Project Bento is now available on the main Second Life viewer and today I bring you a quick post & video to show you FATE‘s awesome new HUD for Bento hands!

Winter Love - FATE Hand Poser HUD for Bento

As shown in the pose above, the possibilities for poses is astonishing and the new HUD from FATE allows you to pose all the different bones in your Bento hands with ease. Catwa and Akeruka are releasing facial expression HUDs for their Bento heads today too, it’s an exciting time to be in SL and I can’t wait for Firestorm to become fully Bento compatible!
