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!

Pulse Fundraiser | Supporting Orlando victims in Second Life

On Tuesday, 28th June the doors opened to the Pulse Fundraiser event to raise money for the victims and families of the devastating shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando earlier in the month.

The event organised by Skye Everidge in partnership with CasperVend is held on a region kindly donated by CerberusXing featuring over 100 designers offering a huge variety of items of which 100% of the donations will be sent to the Pulse Victims GoFundMe Page.

In addition to the amazing selection of items to purchase, there is a host of auction boards at the landing point featuring many residents from designers to bloggers and all in between. Some of the prizes on offer are substantial including lifetime fatpacks, gift cards, photography services and more.
The lucky winner of Bella Gacha’s auction will win one year free at Bella Pointe  worth L$77,948.

The event runs until July 12th!

This cause is very close to my heart and I am bursting with pride for Second Life and its residents. Please share and spread the word so we can raise as much as we can!

Forest Family

Forest Family

Hello beauts! My oh my, I’ve had quite the blogging hiatus. Well, from SL and computers in general! Sadly, I’ve had some health issues, some of which needed emergency surgery. I’m recovering well and feeling loads better but until recently, I had no desire to sit at any computer or console so I used my (very boring) time off RL work to binge watch Criminal Minds and write some fan fics 😉

I’m now getting back in to the groove and feeling inspired so bare with me while I catch up, a few weeks off the grid and I feel like I’m years behind lol.

I am honestly so excited to see how far the store Jian. has come and their contribution to the brand new event, The Gacha Garden, has me squealing with joy! Dedicated players of this, and other designers’ machines, will be awarded with very rare Seeds of Inspiration on every 20th pull. I love this idea, so unique!
