Last night was Sophia and Akkers wedding, two very dear friends of mine, you couldn't meet a nicer couple, they are perfect for each other, jk came as my date, and we danced all night, and drank champagne. It was a lovely wedding and Sophia and Jill her brides maid, both looked beautiful :)
Its amazing the things you find in sl, I love this pic, it just makes me laugh, I took it when I was exploring a sim called Greenies. I heard about from another blog, fun place, and I got a free alien avatar to :)
Its a really BAD idea theres a lil devil that sits on my shoulder and whispers in my ear, you have his password, go on mess with his avatar, you know you want to! and I try to resist, I do! well I don't really try that hard, I loveeee giving makeovers but be careful on your own head be it. if you give me your password you might end up looking like this...
this lovely hippo lady used to be my bro mike before i gave him a makeover though I think he looks great! I am such a great sister he is so lucky to have me lol
I love lady gaga! I think shes a great singer, and I like her style, some of her outfits are a bit mad for me though. I had lots of lady gaga stuff in my inventory, and I bought some stuff off xstreet, and I had lots of fun dressing up as her today and taking pics.
This is the outfit she wore in her music video for poker face, that is my favourite song, and if you hear someone shouting "THATS MY SONG" in a club yeah thats probaly me. ;p
This is the outfit she wore in her Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) video
This is the outfit she wore in her dirty rich video
Today has not been a good day for me, well that is a understatement, its the first fathers day without my dad, so I have been a mess all day. really miss him, and seeing everyone around me talk about there dads doesn't help. my friends have been great though, they know when i just need to be alone, and I know if I need them they are just a instant message away. I can talk to my friends about anything, and there's always someone willing to give me a hug if I need one. which is really great. sl has been my lifeline for long time, and I don't know what I would do without it, its my escape from reality, when sometime reality becomes to much. its good to know you can just disappear into another world and forget your problems for a while. just hang out with friends, and have fun. my friend Jill is mad about Bunny's, she has about 30 of them she gave me a nest tonight. and now I have a new baby bunny. I named her Rosie she is really cute so even though it has been a horrible day for me, and i will be glad its over. I love my new bunny, and I love my friends, and I know as long as I have them to support me, I will get through anything.
I totally love to shop, online on sl, or xstreet, or real life, I just love shopping! weekends are my favourite times, I always look forward to 60l weekends. I love seeing all the different creations people come up with, there is so many talented people out there. I love clothes, and accessories, this weekend the 60 linden bargains were great I got a few things I really love the one I love the most though is this gypsy dress from Kr Couture one of my favourite stores, it is so pretty, and girly, the colours are beautiful, and its really well made. it comes with a necklace and earrings, and has a few different choices for the skirt.
My second favourite is this gorgeous dress from Kiwi. I found the necklace I'm wearing from Stars gems, and thought it looked really well with the dress.
and last but not least this sexy white number from Eluzion, another fantastic store. I have alot of clothes from there. this dress is lovely, and has both the long and short version, I prefer the short. hope you like my outfits, I can't wait for next weeks 60 linden weekend. :)
If this is your first BBBC... What did you get out of your experience? Do you think it will change the way you blog in the future?
Yes this was my first Big blogger challenge, and I really enjoyed it, I love reading all the second life blogs, and meeting new and interesting people. will it influence my blog in the future? I'm not really sure, I mainly just blog about things that make me smile, or that interest me.I like blogging and I really had fun with the BBBC and would do it again :)
This is was a tough one, deciding what to write, as I have a few things I would like to write about. so it was tough to decide on one, but I think I will write about one of my pets on second life. this is no ordinary pet, not a cat or a dog, nope this is a unicorn, I have always loved unicorns, they are beautiful magical creatures. so when my bro found me one, I fell in love with it, its so pretty, it acts like a normal horse, and sounds like one. he can canter, and gallop, and even rear up. but what i love most about him is that he can fly, and two people can ride him. I love taking my friends rides on him, I named him Stardust because of his pretty sparkles, hes deffinalty one of the coolest pets I ever had on sl.
I am having fun checking out lots of second life blogs, I had no idea there was so many, and I like reading about other peoples second lifes, and I had no idea what a plurker was untill I read Starfires blog,thanks Star :) so now I know, and decided to become one to, still not sure what it is but I will get the hang of it I hope.
Last night we went to africa, saw some cheeky monkeys that threw stuff, made friends with a Mammoth and went on a nice balloon ride so we could see all of the animals then we danced for a while. we love checking out sims and exploring new ones :)
SL Bloggers - Is your avatar more or less your current biological age? Do you portray a younger avatar, or older? Why is this?
Well I am 28 real life, and In second life I am the same age, all my friends on second life know what age I am, I would never hide my rl age from anyone. and on second life age really doesn't matter that much anyway. I have friends on there of all different ages, I do like it when I meet someone near my own age though, as I can relate more to them. but my older friends are interesting and fun to. and I can learn from there experiences. In sl I don't act any older or younger than I am I'm just me.
How hard do you think it is to find a relationship in SL?
It can be very hard, or not hard at all, it really just depends on the people you meet, and whether you click with them or not. I'm lucky to have found a great guy on sl, though we are just friends at the minute, we are just enjoying each others company, I just love being around him, he makes me laugh, and he is really sweet. I dont usually go for sweet guys, usually end up with a bad boy. but I really love spending time with jk, and I can even more as hes my neighbour on sl now. :)
If you have an SL relationship, have you met in the physical world? Would you meet them? Do you think it would change your SL relationship if you met?
No we haven't met in the rl world, but we are both from the UK, usually I try and keep my sl and rl seperate so not sure if I would meet anyone from sl, but the friendships and relationships I make in sl, are very real, and mean alot to me. I don't think it would matter if we met or not, I love the person he is, and that matters more to me than looks.
My friends are all really great people, they are lots of fun and always there when I need them. Friendship is really important in real life, and second life, any life can be a very lonely place without friends. I am lucky to have mine, they are all different, what I love about second life is that you actually get to know the person without having to see or hear them you just get to find out what kind of personalty they have, and you become friends with people you probaly wouldnt in real life, every one of my friends make my sl a fun place to be whether we are just hanging out, or having a party it dosent matter what we do. we always have fun.
2. My Home
I love having a home on second life, just somewhere you can hang out with friends, or be alone with your thoughts. I live on the beach right now, and I like nothing better to lay by my pool and listen to the waves, and look at the sunset, I move alot, that's whats great about sl, you can live on a beach, a forest, or even in a tree house my sl bro Mike does, if you want to and move as much as you want.
I am a animal lover in real life, and second life. I have four dogs that actually act like real dogs, and obey commands, they even play fetch, and come when I call them, they are great, I also have a dolphin called bubbles, which I can ride on. and have a parrot named ziggy, and two monkeys, my home is like a zoo sometimes ;)
I like blogging, I think its a good way to express yourself, and share things with others. sometimes its easier to write how you feel than to actually say it, I started a real life blog a while ago, and I loved posting on it, I was surprised how many people liked my blog, and left comments, I never expected that, I just mainly wrote about things that I liked and that made me smile, sometimes serious things that really mattered to me. it just really depended on how I felt at the time. I met alot of nice people through blogging, from all over the world, people I could talk to, and who had the same interests as me. I've been on second life a year and 6 months now, and just thought it would be fun to start a blog about my secondlife and all the friends I have made there, and the fun things we do. also wanted to meet other second life bloggers, and hopefully make some new friends aswell.
This is Molly my lil chimp, isn't she cute?, I really didn't need another pet, I have lots, but my friend Brett was looking for a pet for his girlfriend, and invited me along. I saw the chimps, and just had to get one. she can do lots of tricks, and I can make her any size I like, and carry her with me anywhere I go. She has cute outfits to, and acessories.
This is my home, I move alot and have had a lot of different homes on sl, but this is one of my favourites, Its peaceful and quiet, I love relaxing by the pool with friends, or dancing. I love having my own land and a place to call home.
Back then I was a noob, I dont look very noobish because I met some great friends who helped me out, and showed me where to get clothes and stuff, but boy did I act like a noob, took me forever to work out how to wear clothes. I was walking around with boxes on my head for a while. Second life was quite over whelming for me, when I first joined, I dont mind admitting I felt a bit lost, and wasn't sure I belonged there, but I started using the video guides and using search to teleport to places I thought looked interesting, and I met some great people, who I have alot in common with, they showed me new places, and now here I am just a year later
I no longer wear boxes on my head, or look noobish, I have my own land,My own lil beach paradise, four dogs and a parrot,and a dolphin. I love animals in rl and sl, great friends and loads of places to hang out, and tons of lovely clothes and acessories I love to shop, I love my second life!
