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?

Little World

Wishing everyone a happy Valentine’s Day from the charming nooks of Little World in Second Life! This region brims with photographic opportunities amidst its urban landscape, and the intricate lighting effects add a magical touch.

Truth

Exciting news for all you Second Life fashion enthusiasts—Truth, the highly celebrated hair brand, has made a dazzling re-entry into the clothing scene! A little-known fact is that this isn’t his first clothing release. Truth was originally a clothing brand before becoming a hair brand, and even created a clothing brand called Alt in 2016. It’s quite nostalgic to look back at my blog post from nearly a decade ago and realize I’m still rocking the same Maitreya Lara. If it’s good, don’t change it!

I believe Truth’s foray into apparel exudes the same excellence and attention to detail as the hairstyles we all love. His latest offerings, the Kingston Sweater and Kingston Joggers, boast a spectrum of hues, from delicate pastels to subdued darks, catering to every palette. The cropped pants perfectly showcases your chosen footwear. Have you ever tried to find shoes that pairs well with long pants in Second Life without clipping? It’s impossible.

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.

Hello from Scrooge’s office on Aurelias, formerly Scrooge and Marley, but as you know, Marley died. As the cold weather sets in, I’m on the lookout for the perfect pair of pants to keep me warm in Second Life. It’s quite a challenge to find realistic pants rather than just leggings, but I stumbled upon the fantastic Blair set from Ricielli. This set not only includes cozy pants but also a stylish crop top, and the best part is that it’s available in LaraX!

Linden WelcomeHub

WelcomeHub
The WelcomeHub

Hello from the new Linden WelcomeHub! It’s opening day, so there are lots of residents here checking it out, including mentors on hand to greet and help new residents. My friend, who was volunteering as a mentor, reported that she had already helped plenty of people. The futuristic and bright atmosphere reflects the SL20B slogan — “Our Fantastic Future”.

The WelcomeHub regions also includes Linden Homes demo, Motown, Helios Casino, a Sandbox, and a few other things to showcase things you can do in Second Life.

WelcomeHub
Motown in Second Life

If you’re new to Second Life, welcome! Don’t feel pressured to go shopping, buy a mesh body, look good, own land, etc. Just focus on making friends, learning how to walk, opening packages, explore public spaces, and it’s okay to wear the free Library avatars. A lot of people swarm new residents with places to shop and help them look good, but they still leave Second Life cos they don’t have any friends or any reason to stay.

Hello from Aurelias! We’re adding touches of Spring to the town square, and the centerpiece is this beautiful Blooming Grand Piano from Dust Bunny. Add your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group to be selected for the group cover. I love seeing the region through your eyes.

I’m wearing the new Ubon head from LeLutka. It’s slightly different than Kaya, but I think I’m ready to move on. I spent days modifying my shape to my liking; it’s a work in progress. I shared this raw screenshot on Twitter a few days ago. I love the HD brows so much, and this is the first time I’m undecided between the really thin HD brows or the one I normally wear, the less thin one. They both work so well for this head. I normally only like the bottom two, the rest are way too bushy and thick for me.

I’ve been attending the Concierge and Land User Group meetings and they’re so lively and interesting. I started going to be more informed about upcoming land changes and to give feedback. Wendi Linden & Vix Linden were such great hosts. Here’s the schedule for the meeting — see you at the next one!

I already know a lot about Second Life land, maybe too much. I’m obsessed with regions, Linden Homes, and mainland (even though mainland is my least favorite land product). Recently I learned that some residents don’t utilize the 10% group land bonus because they don’t understand it. I’m currently holding a piece of mainland, and with the group bonus, I can donate my extra tier to my friend. If every Premium member (who doesn’t own a Linden Home) deeds their tier to group, they would have a little extra to donate to a public project or acquire more land. If you own a big enough parcel of mainland, where the 10% bonus is 512sqm or more, you could use that extra to get a Linden Home.

If you find land stuff interesting, let me know in the comments. I’m happy to share some tips & tricks to maximize your land-owning experience without spending extra money.

What I’m Wearing:
LeLutka – Ubon Mesh Head
Exile – Elia
MVT – Lady Fashionista bag (White)
Tetra – Bella Dress
Tetra – Off-Shoulder Cardigan
Ingenue – Olivia Heels (Champagne)
Yummy – Dainty Layered Necklace
