Sunday Blues Cure

Yup, I’ve got the Sunday Blues. I get that in addition to the Monday Blues. What is Sunday blues you ask? Well it in anticipation of Monday of course.  I figured if I can find a work where I only work from Tuesday to Friday I would cut my blues in half. I love that thought, but since I unable to do that (and afford it), I do retail therapy, which I can now afford, since I work Mondays. You know what works even better, though?

Freebies, yup if I can get a freebie, I have more left to buy even more. Sooo I’d like to give you more information about The Dirty Turkey Hunt that started earlier today.  It is running for it’s 4th year and a 100 fabulous stores are participating across the grid. Perfect to keep you busy inside while it starts to get cold outside. For the start of the hunt, click here, and for the hints and the rest of the SLursl, click here. Happy hunting!

Shocking Discovery

This past week just ran me over and moved at the speed of a runaway train. Leaving me totally bewildered, overwhelmed but amused at the same time. Strange combination of emotions but we all have our strange moments. I have also discovered that I share personality traits with one of New Zealand’s high profile criminals. How is this relevant to this post? That’s what amused me this week or was that the bewildered part.. well that’s up for discussion.

Shocking Discovery

Something I’m sure of though are the million review copies in my inbox, which contributed to the overwhelmed part. So let me tell you about some of it. Have you heard of the Unknown Hunt? I think this is a wonderful idea to get new designers noticed. The designers participating in this hunt only opened their doors after June this year. Good reason to support them and to see what they are all about. More details about the hunt, participants and the hints, click here. The maxi skirt I’m wearing in these photos are a hunt gift from Fabouzz.

Shocking Discovery

If you are looking for a new skin, do yourself a favor and visit FreshFace, the skin I’m wearing is Acacia and it’s available in 4 tones, you have options of brows or no brows and of course all the necessary appliers, including Lush, Lolas and Slink.

Now, I’m off to stew over my personality traits.

*WARNING* Turn off Media in SL and do the hunt!

Serious security flaw with SL media implementation? This may be old news to you, but I was recently scouting the forums for some interesting reads and this was posted yesterday. Since I started Second Life in 2009 I had warnings that it was not ‘safe’ to steam music. Is this just rumors?  If not?  How is that going to affect clubs? Is it only media or streaming too?  So more and more people started to question this and the reply: ‘It is not an identity disclosure risk, though that is part of it. It is a full account compromise risk,’ ‘Do with the information what you will. I will post more details as I have them. I don’t think it would affect those who control their own streams. This is about going onto land that has media set onto it that is not under your control.’

After reading a very lengthily post and people getting off topic, it was clarified that streaming music on your own land was safe, as was streaming music in clubs. It is when you are out exploring and you do not know the source, that you should deactivate your media. Also, never let any SL Client store your password, always enter your password and if it is already stored, manually clear and clear your cache too. The debate is still ongoing and if you guys are interested I can link you to it. Just leave me an IM or comment. 🙂

Something else of interest, a new Colors of Summer Hunt that is happening on the grid! It starts at Atooly and the gift is the gorgeous slink applier nails, it comes in various shades but I chose the pink fade to go with my dress.  When you find that gift, the next LM and hint are included for the next item. Look here for the complete list of participants and gifts. The dress I’m wearing is gift no 11 from  Grumble.

Then another stunning new addition to my inventory is this skin from (FreshFace). It is available in 4 different tones with Lola appliers.    Happy hunting!!

Are you excited?

Firestorm had a meeting with inworld residents Saturday, 10 August and they informed us of what was happening over the next few weeks. I did not attend but I read up on it a little. The thing that I am the most excited about is materials. That will enable us to see textures in 3d, so it will look more realistic. They used the example of currently you see a button on a shirt as a flat, “drawn on” button, but when materials are enabled you will be able to see it as a button that actually stands out. Your settings will have to be bumped up a little, but it would make photography much more realistic.

I know that the current Official Viewer already has this function, but I’m prepared to wait on Firestorm. Strawberry Singh did a blog post on this. Have a look and see how amazing the hair look. Although I have to admit, I’m more excited about materials on clothes textures than hair textures.

Dead Dollz

We are in an exciting time for Second Life. There are so many improvements to come, it’s wonderful to be part of the change.

Something that didn’t change is the amazing quality of items that are available at The Thrift Shop. The dress I’m wearing is from Dead Dollz and comes with a cutsie lace jacket and a bow collar, but I opted not wear it with this outfit, as I didn’t want to take the attention away from the dress. I really love the neckline and the detail of the bow on the side. You will have to check it out, as everything at this event is 50% off the normal price.

Busy’ness!

Although I lovvee that I’m finally embracing having a real life, I am  so behind with blogging and wish I can balance things better! So without further complaining I want to tell you about the  Praxis Layla top. This is really a diverse top as it comes with a hud with four different styles and each style comes with at least six different colors.

Then also the Love Donna Flora Event opened two days ago and it kicked off with a bang! The sim crashed twice and apart from that, people were loving the layout, the wide range of products and designs as well as the cause.  One person’s life is really going to be less stressful because of that.

Busy'ness

One of the items that is on sale for is these nice poses from The Muse Poses.  I’m only showing two poses of the pack of five, so go check it out!. Also Flair is contributing to the Love Donna Flora Event and I’m wearing nails from there which has a Slink applier hud.

Darker

34.1

We all have some darkness in us. I read a note on Facebook the other day that said: We have both a good and bad wolf in us, the one that gets fed, is the one that survives. But in all things, you really do need some darkness in you to be able to cope with life. We all need that little bitchy’ness that little rudeness. No one can be perfectly good all the time.

With this outfit I’m celebrating my darkness. The dress, jacket, and horns are the latest release from Delirium. The dress comes in a range of bright colours. Make-up and boots are included.
