90’s Throwback

Hi beauts ♥ I hope you’re all well and enjoying fun and fulfilling Slives this beautiful Saturday!

90's Throwback

I apologise for my absence, a holiday, sickness and work have meant very little time to enjoy even the basics of Second Life – never mind blogging & vlogging!

I hope to address much more of this in a vlog where I’ll talk in detail about various issues I’ve been having and what’s going on! For now, I just wanted to share this picture because I had so much fun making it.

Everything you can see is from the Rewind: 90’s event which ended in Feb and I just couldn’t find time to put together this post. Hopefully, these amazing items will find their way to the respective main stores very soon!

Bard Song + Dancing In Second Life!

Bard Song
Hi  everyone! It’s been a while… almost a year in fact! There’s not much to report either, I’ve still been around inworld doing various things but I totally lost the motivation and passion to blog.
I think having such a long break has done me the world of good and now I feel refreshed and ready to give some of my attention back to blogging. It’ll be a slow process I’m sure as this site needs revamping and I’m going to try my hand at being an SL Youtuber! Watch this space haha.

I was completely inspired by the current round of The Fantasy Collective and decided to put together this dancing bard character. I had so much fun dressing up again, I’d thoroughly missed it!
I decided to use this costume in my very first Second Life dancing video featured below!

Now I know I suck at the camera work but hopefully, I can get better with practice! I wanted to have my own contribution to Strawberry Singh‘s awesome Dancing In Second Life Challenge so I hope you enjoy my weird tribal-contemporary piece!

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!
