Luxe Box in Second Life – June ’16 Round

Luxe Box in Second Life - June '16
And so it was the 15th of the month and midnight SLT struck and all rejoiced – it was finally time for the new edition of the Luxe Box!

For those who don’t know the deal yet (where you been?) here’s a summary:

  • Luxe Box is Second Life’s version of a subscription box!
  • 12 high-quality designers participate.
  • The in-world group is open to join from the 1st of every month until the 14th.
  • The cost to join the group is $1,500 Lindens.
  • On the 15th of the month, you receive your box of goodies!
  • Past boxes are available to purchase here for $2000 Lindens but you must be in the group.
  • Visit the official Luxe Box website for FAQ’s, info and awesome perks!

I’m in love with the idea of this box, the fun and mystery is fantastic and all items are easily worth triple the group fee. But enough of my writing, I made an awkward video about it!

I can promise you Strawberry Singh did a much better job here! Haha. Let me know what you think anyway, I had a lot of fun making it!

PS. Make sure you head over to Exposeur and take advantage of the closing sale – I’m super sad to see this store go but I wish Ruby all the best. Seriously, there are many bargains to be had and it ends June 30th! Go!

5 Years in Second Life

5 Years in Second Life

Happy rez day to me! Today I’m celebrating 5 years in Second Life!

It’s definitely been an interesting ride so far and I’ve experienced many crazy and amazing things. From attending a university to train as an RP doctor and being a varsity cheerleader at school to fashion blogging and starring in Paradise Lost with the Basilique Performing Arts Company. My avatar has even been projected onto a floating sphere in Hollywood whilst she danced!

After seeing others do the same, I thought it would be fun to create a collage of my avatar through the years. She has certainly gotten paler! It seems 2013 and onwards I definitely acquired a signature look.
I had a passion for taking photos pretty much from day one and have worked hard at improving my photography ever since and I’ve spent many a pretty penny on machines that can run Second Life to it’s highest standards!

I’ve seen many friends come and go, some devastating losses and some not so much. But more notably, I met my best friend here and in November 2015 I experienced my first ever flight when I travelled across the world to stay with her, meeting another wonderful friend in the process! Who’d have ever thought I’d be able to say that five years ago?!

I’m excited to see what the future holds for me in Second Life. After my long hiatus, I’m definitely excited to get into blogging again and will continue, as always, to explore current trends and stay up to date with the ever changing and improving quality! I hope to get back into dance and performance and I look forward to joining the Second Life YouTube craze!

And finally, thank you to everyone who follows this blog and has been there for much of the ride. I appreciate every single one of you and I hope to bring you many exciting and interesting posts in the future.

First & Recent Challenge!

It’s been a while since I participated in one of Berry‘s Monday Memes; so when I saw the idea for this weeks, I was super amused!

First & Recent Challenge

Meme instructions: Share a side by side comparison of your first blog picture beside a recent picture of your avatar. Don’t forget to share the link to your image in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

So, the image I used isn’t ~technically~ my first post, it’s the second :p but my first post was an awkward side shot where I was trying to be fancy and the content was introductory. I chose the second post as this is where I really began my blogging journey!

As you can probably see, a number of improvements have occurred over my two years of blogging, the biggest being two upgrades of computers and actually having a decent card – no more “Intel Family HD Graphics!” :’)
Some of the other biggest improvements would include shooting in a high resolution, learning how to utilise shadows and windlights and Photoshop skills specific to editing Second Life pictures. And of course, the quality of clothes and accessories in world!

It’s been super interesting taking a peek at everyone’s picture comparisons! Thanks for the awesome challenge Berry!

Fist Pumpin’ Goodies

So by chance, I came across a notice whilst I was shopping, informing me of the ‘Fist Pump With The Best Hunt 3‘ – I’d never heard of it before so I thought I’d take a look at the website and pop over to some of the stores.
And boy am I glad that I did, check some of these goodies out…

An Aux Summers Day

The Boho Backless top from Auxilliary is a great addition to your summer wardrobe, coming in two different colours – sky and copper!
I’m also wearing the stunning jewellery from Sweet Leonard and I’m standing on the perfect Old English Summer House from There’s No Place Like Home (Better view in a mo!)

Sweet Leonard

Here’s a close up of the jewellery, it really is so well made, I absolutely love the colours. Can’t go wrong for a free gift!

No Time to Grumble

Here, I am wearing the adorable sundress from Grumble, a beautiful fit and great for a day at the beach (also comes with a mens prize!)
My cute cute cute ring is from the Kitty Ring set at [tea.s], comes in four colours! The spiked headband is the Endless Summer hunt gift from Auxilliary, I love spikes and studs so this was an awesome freebie.
You can also see a better view of the summer house, very spacious yet small enough to make a cute addition to your garden!

Summer Stroll

Lastly, take a cool evening stroll along the beach in this amazing long evening dress from [DandelionWine]! I love the cut and shape of this dress and it even comes with a HUD and four colours to choose from 🙂
