003: Look of the Day

Hi guys, I have a little time to write some stuff today! I’m sorting my inventory today, deleting things that are awful quality, not needed (like prim and flexi hair), don’t suit my av (like skins – not planning to change my avis face shape) or never dress my avi in. I’m being ruthless. I’ve decided not to buy anything new until my inventory is sorted! This outfit is mostly items that were already in my inventory before I vanished from SL (apart from the Maitreya sweater and body).

002: Leaf on the Wind

Leaf on the Wind is a fundraiser to make Scarlet Chandrayaan dream come true – a trip to London. Scarlet has the horrible disease that is cancer and one of the things she longs to do is visit London. Arora Zanzibar has organised this great event with many talented creators taking part. There’s also an auction and donation kiosks over the grid. I bought two items as there wasn’t much I really wanted (and lacking funds), one of which is this dress from Anahcron (a new to me store).

DisneyBound – Playing Catch Up – Week 1 – 7

I’ve been super busy in RL so I’ve not been doing Natalee Oodle’s SL Disney Bound Challenge, There aren’t many blogger challenges that I get excited about but this one looks super fun so I’m playing catch up. I could have done separate posts for each week but it’s a lot easier for me to put them all in one post. Anyways, hope you like the outfits! I’ve taken the colours from the original Disney characters and added a modern twist to them. 

Catching up on DisneyBound!

Why do I blog Meme

why do i blog

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Try not to swear at Berry in your head for having so many questions this week and don’t forget to leave a comment in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well!

  1. How long have you been blogging? I celebrated my 4th year of blogging on March 4th this year. Birthday Blog Post
  2. Why did you start blogging? Uma Ceawlin inspired me to start blogging. I didn’t know her personally, I only knew her through her blog Uma’s Style Diary. I loved her pictures, her styling, the items she used in her posts. I wanted to have a blog like hers. I was really sad when she announced she wouldn’t be blogging anymore. 
  3. How many times a week do you post an entry? Lately? Zero. I wish I could do maybe 2 or 3 a week but RL has been getting busier, so I haven’t had much time. I’ve done 17 proper blog posts since I got back from NZ in January. Still, I guess it’s better than nothing eh?
  4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? Same as above, zero. I look at Flickr more than I do other blogs. 
  5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? Rarely, I wish I had time to read other blogs and comment on them. 
  6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? I sometimes have a look at stats and I’m always surprised at how many views my blog has had considering my lack of blog posts. 
  7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? No I don’t think so. 
  8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? Probably not. In the past I seem to have blogged more for the designers that send me review items or the events that I sign up to, than I do for myself. I tell myself to blog what I want, not what others want me to, but then I go and sign up to blog events. whoops
  9. Do you blog under your real name? I have a real life blog that I set up for my holiday. 
  10. Are there topics that you would never blog about? My SL blog is basically just fashion posts, so I don’t blog about politics or serious stuff. I don’t use it as a way to rant or bitch or share opinions on things other than the fashion. (That’s what Plurk is for!)
  11. What is the theme/topic of your blog? It was originally meant to be my style diary (hence the blog name), what my avi was wearing that day etc but over the last couple of years it turned into more of a ‘OMG I MUST BLOG THIS BEFORE ANYONE ELSE’ type blog, which was something I didn’t want to happen.
  12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? Yes, I have my store one, Blogging Second Life and Fashion on a Budget. 
  13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? It’s tested my photography and editing skills, my styling and my creativeness with blog posts. I’ve also had the honour of being a blogger for some amazing stores and events which I’m extremely grateful for.
  14. So, why do you continue to blog? Well in my current situation, blogging and Second Life will be taking a backseat from now on, so who knows when I’ll blog next.

Just a little bit chilly

 

Hi you guys! Hope your all good. It’s a bit chilly outside isn’t it? Well, it is in the UK. Below zero temperatures and some snow. Slightly different to the hot summer I left behind in New Zealand. It seems to be getting a bit chilly inworld too, so I’m starting to wrap Evie up in some warm clothes.

Leafy – Amethyst – Sunkissed *Coming Soon*

This is the Sunkissed tone of Leafy’s new skin – Amethyst, aiming to be released Monday 5th November as soon as possible. Kaethe is running late due to rl isses. I’m devastated that I won’t have time to do a big post featuring all the tones tomorrow before I leave, but when I’m back from New Zealand I will do a blog post featuring all of them. Kaethe is currently still working on uploading the masses of textures so wasn’t able to send me the cleavage or lipsticks layers that come with the skins so I’ll deffo include them in the next post. By then you will have probably seen the skins everywhere anyways lol

I will be honest with you (and Kaethe already knows my thoughts), when Kaethe told me that she would be reworking the lips I was kind of sad because the original lips where what I thought made the skins unique and recognisable. I loved them because they looked more realistic in my honest opinion. Whilst I do love the new softer lips, I think I will always prefer the old lips. All in all, I love this skin. Kaethe did do a great job on it and it was worth the wait. I deffo think you should go demo when it’s released!

Have a great November, and hopefully see you in December (unless I decide to stay in NZ for longer). If you’d like to stay up to date on what I’m up to over in Singapore & New Zealand, you can follow my blog here.

For the names of the skin colours, go to my flickr, hover over the pics. I’ve labelled each one.
