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.

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!

Wings hair from the 11.11 sale!

In China, November 11 is celebrated as Singles’ Day, originally a celebration for single people that has transformed into a major online retail event. Chinese consumers take advantage of discounts and promotions, making it the world’s largest shopping festival. Singles’ Day has expanded globally, showcasing the power of e-commerce.

For the past few years, Second Life brands have promoted 11/11 as a shopping event offering discounts to residents. It’s an opportunity for brands to capture the consumer spending market before the glut of Black Friday sales. This year, some of my favorite brands are participating in 11/11, so I took advantage of the discount to stock up on items I didn’t already own.

I was at Toksik to see if there was anything I wanted that I didn’t already own, but unfortunately, I already owned everything I wanted. Then my friend Sasy said, “You need to go to Wings… beautiful hair!” so I went and bought some hairstyles that I didn’t already own. I picked up six new hairstyles from Wings, with prices ranging from L$150-L$160 per hair color pack.

Send Gifts to Your Favorite SLers

Milk & Dumplings

One of my SL friends, Alicia Chenaux, is now a Twitch streamer, and she occasionally receives gifts from people that watch her stream. I think it’s so nice that the Twitch community shows their appreciation of each other by giving real-world gifts, not just in-game things.

How can Second Life residents show their appreciation for each other outside of Second Life? I’ve been researching some platforms used by online content creators, and here are three that are a good start.

Sweet Valentine

Sweet Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day! Spring has arrived on Aurelias, and it’s just the perfect weather for a stroll around town. When I’m not wearing casual outfits, I love to dress up in frilly Victorian-style looks, or my interpretation of it.

I had a grand time today riding the Linden Love Train and meeting some Lindens and Moles at Isle of View. This year is my first time attending the Dunk & Hug a Linden & Mole Event, and I was disappointed that there were only a few Lindens in attendance. It was definitely exciting to pose for a photo with the most popular Linden of all time, Patch Linden. I wanted to meet some of my favorite Lindens on the Concierge team, but they were probably busy working.

Second Life’s 19th Birthday!

Gogo @ SL19B

Hello from SL19B! This year’s Second Life birthday celebration is shaping up to be one of the best yet. I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to wear the Pathos Skirt & Blouse from toksik, and this is it! I just checked the date, and this was purchased in March 2021. I’ve been considering wearing it for over a year. I went to a couple of the main attractions at SL19B, and the Tapestry of Time was my favorite.

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.

Hello from a project that I’m currently working on. I should reveal the location in about a month, so please stay tuned, cos you’re all invited! I hope everyone is having a terrific end of October. I don’t normally dress up for Halloween, but I’ve been dying to wear this Toksik Forage Dress since I got it almost a year and a half ago, and just never found the time. This whole look ended up reminding me of a scene straight out of The Haunting of Hill House.
