Laundry Day

Laundry Day

Sunday has rolled around again, which means it’s time for chores like laundry. In Second Life, I don’t often choose lingerie, but when I do, I prefer Bakes on Mesh for easy layering. They’re great for layering under other clothes to keep my look tasteful.

I’ve also made a point of wearing actual underwear lately, instead of just turning on the alpha on my pelvis.

Recently, I picked up a charming Nyla bra and panties set from Ison, and guess what? It’s a group gift, and joining the Ison group is free! When I first wore this set, I noticed the nipple area was quite prominent. But no worries — I just used the Bakes on Mesh add-ons from Maitreya and everything looked much smoother.

It’s pretty interesting in Second Life how some clothes really go into detail in certain areas, if you get what I mean! Thankfully, some thoughtful designers offer solutions to soften those details.

Sunday Coffee Date

Neve

Hello from Second Life! I’m really loving my outfit today with its soft colors, and even better, I got it on sale! I’m all geared up for a laid-back coffee date.

I’m refreshing my wardrobe with Maitreya LaraX items, moving on from the old Lara model. I’m trying to shop smarter this time, knowing that these virtual clothing might not last forever as new bodies come out. Good news is, lots of LaraX clothes are up for grabs at low prices over the weekend, so reinventing your look doesn’t have to cost a lot.

I’ve realized why I rarely wear pants here: many are too long and impossible to find shoes that fit without intersecting with the pants leg. But, Neve’s got these ankle-length Scale Pants on sale that solve that problem. They have a HUD that lets you change how long they are, choose different belt looks or just go without one. There’s a small thing though — the belt loop shadow stays even when you choose just the belt (without loop) option. Might be a little mistake?

Cupid

Cupid

Valentine’s Day festivities in Second Life are a joy, regardless of your virtual relationship status. As someone who’s happily hitched in the non-digital world, I’ve always roamed through this virtual landscape solo. Honestly, it’s never been an issue for me; I adore getting into the holiday spirit and dressing up for the occasion.

My exploration last year took me to the delightful Dunk & Hug a Linden & Mole Event, a first for me, and it was incredibly fun. Donned as a charming Victorian lady, I had such a wonderful time that I’m tempted to revive that persona for this year’s celebration. The allure of that period’s romantic charm is simply irresistible to me.

Lindens & Residents Snowball Fight

Lindens & Residents Snowball Fight 2023

I went to the Lindens & Residents Snowball Fight at Winter Wonderland to test drive my new Dell Alienware computer. This is my second time attending the snowball fight event, the first time was last year. The Winter Wonderland venue is beautiful, but this year the lag was noticeably higher than last year, probably because 60+ residents were in attendance.

Even with the lag, I could tell my new computer rendered everything beautifully, though I couldn’t really move at all. When other residents shoot you 3 times, you die, and you’re immediately teleported back to the entrance.

Winter Day

Winter Day

Hello from Aurelias! We launched the region around this time last year, so we’re very excited to celebrate our second winter. We’ve brought back the snow and the Christmas tree on the town square, and we’ve built a lot of cozy places for you to explore and enjoy all around the area. Come take a look!

Frugalista

Frugalista

Hello from Aurelias! I got such a good deal on my outfit and hair that I felt like a complete frugalista. The hair was $250L for a fatpack from Stealthic and the outfit is $50L from cheezu. You can look fantastic in Second Life without breaking your budget. I find it completely doable to live on just the premium membership stipend of $300L weekly. You don’t even have to look that hard for a sale, designers are all competing for your lindens.

In Fantasy

In Fantasy

/Update/ I’m updating this post to say that Patch Linden did not extend the fair for another two weeks. It was an inside joke that apparently I misunderstood. A lot of the attendants at the event were thanking him in local chat and acted excited, so I thought it was part of the planned event/offerings. This reminds me of all the awkward times when Linden Lab would make inside jokes during official events that only a few people got, and it’s super awkward for everyone not privy to the joke. Anyway, the fair ended!
*note* This info is according to the Fantasy Faire organizer on SM.

Did you hear? Fantasy Faire has been extended for another two weeks – courtesy of Patch Linden! Patch announced this at the Jail & Bail event, so you have more time to explore and shop the regions for a good cause. I had a great time attending my first Jail & Bail and seeing all of the goodies up for grabs.

Hello from Aurelias! I just want to thank all of the visitors for your sweet comments about the region and for submitting your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group. There’s a rush in Second Life to immediately go from Christmas/Winter to Spring. We’re taking our time on Aurelias and thawing out slowly! We already planning for Spring, but I just love the snow so much that it’s going to linger through March.

Bumble Bee Cafe

Bumble Bee Cafe

Hello from the Bumble Bee Cafe on Aurelias! I’m wearing my favorite outfit of this season, the Neve fluffy hoodie from Lunar. This fluffy hoodie texture is excellent, I’m so impressed with the texturing and the HUD. Lunar is a brand to add to your wardrobe, they have lots of sweet and sexy offerings.
