Three years I have called this cottage home on Second Life and it has been my rosy bubble away from all the wastelands and craziness that ensures from other residents in the virtual universe.
My dining table is always changing, depending on what is released by my favourite creators for events, this picture is last month featuring cutesy food made by Tentacio or Random matter. The ginger and blue birds are from Jian’s main store, during a Fifty linden release.
I even changed the wardrobe that I had from Birdy’s Boudoir to Nomi’s Princess closet that was released for the Gacha Gardens. It is more prim heavy but it had more detail and its pink, of course it had to be part of my bedroom.
Can you believe the above photo was taken outside of my cottage using the books background by Astralia, I love to read in reality and reading books with a cat on my lap, makes it even better. Pose is by Le Poppycock which features the cat on my chest, found at the September round of The Liason Collective.
I have taken a couple of photos featuring my beloved rug in my bedroom over the past two years, I have just changed things surrounding the pouf in the middle. Usually what is on the pink rug reflects my hobbies, one side is make-up, the other side is painting and books. New additions are gaming console, ramen and journals.
I always take picture of my desk but not on the other side of it where I have added more cute decor items from gachas. The Arcade opened again this month and I barely bought anything except the dolls by Garbaggio, my collection is ever expanding. The hen and her chick, lucky cat, pink mailbox are by MishMish, the ginger kitten in a hen outfit is by Parfait, clipboards are Tres Blah, ramen is Random matter.
When reality is too much, I run away into virtual and fantasy because it is the only thing that is stable and where my imagination can fly without concern.
That has been my thought pattern since last Friday, my moods come and go in great highs and terrible lows. I am back on Second Life, taking pictures in between my story writing too. The above picture is in Backdrop city and it was after I had seen the film Ready Player One, I found a gamer setting and was inspired to take a pic with my Moon bunnies by Half-deer. Top is Epoch, hair is Truh, garter is Dirty Stories, harness is Cynful.
This was the first photo I took when I returned to Second Life after a 1.5 month-ish break and though I do not get any high favourites like I used to do, I still have fun when the right spark smacks into me and gives me an idea for a photo. I am wearing Runaway hair, the bikini is by Vincue, earrings are Random Matter and the pose is Foxcity as always. I love to take photos inside my cottage, a lot of my acquaintances in-world have complimented at how pink and cute it is, when there is darkness brighten up a room!
I love the above photo and I think it’s because I surrounded myself in not only a very pink scene but I have groups of sleeping kittens around my avatar and bootchi’s can make anyone’s day better. It is is medically proven that in the company of a feline, you feel more relaxed and less stressed. Maybe that is why my Skitty has been in my room every evening before I go to bed. My outfit is purely made by Giz Seorn and bought at the latest Uber round.
Backdrops that are made by the designers in-world help me in a lot of ways, it saves me from hunting down picturesque sims for a photo, I can rez them on my land without being disturbed by others and they are usually really pretty backgrounds that can go well with my outfit. The above background is made by Foxcity, she has been making a lot of backdrops with her bento poses lately and I have been happily selecting my favourite ones. Dress is Candydoll, hair is Dela, necklace is Bauhaus movement and my Meowl is by Hextraordinary.
I have another outfit from IMVU that I’m willing to share with everyone, I am glad that the clones I used to have in that virtual universe all poofed into reality and no longer creep onto my page looking at my stuff because I can happily share my LOTD without concern.

Polyvore is gone but I still like to create outfits when I am not writing my novel so I am now sharing from IMVU, it is sporadic and not detailed but something fun.

I have been enjoying taking photos with windlights lately, particularly this collection of photos. Depending on my mood, it has been using my colour scheme of pink and cute aesthetic into mature photos.
This is pure Japanese/Korean idol being all cute and innocent though the clothes revealing a heaving bust and midriff inclines that the idol herself isn’t as innocent as she shows to her fanbase. Featuring the adorable hoody by Hime*Dream, pigtails by Runaway Hair and the backdrop is made by Foxcity. A lot of my bento poses and scenes are made by Satomi, she keeps unleashing her imagination onto the grid and we, the happy customers all too happily oblige in purchasing her products.
Pure mischief and naughty, I haven’t taken a picture of my avatar nude in so long (absence of the boyfriend does that to you) but the background by Paparazzi was neon pink and pretty that I had to use it for a photo despite it meaning that my avatar had no clothes on. Thankfully the ombre hair once more by Runaway covers the body mostly. The Princess sleeping mask is by .Olive. from a previous round of The Arcade.
Inspired by the song by Mya: ‘Case of the Ex’ and feeling for one of my best friends who is still seeing the moronic behaviour of an ex boyfriend, the above picture was stemmed from all those feelings. It all started from the spray bottle made by Marmalade for Limit8, she made a gacha that has various potions including Love potion and even cat nip. I decided to change it up with the blue ombre hair, it is by Truth and the corporate/detailed jacket by Pixicat is gorgeous. The golden keys are from one of Cureless+ gacha.
A fluffy outfit taken in the comfort of my cottage where many LOTD have been taken and my house has been featured in the spotlight on Flickr. Many understand why I wouldn’t leave my home and stay sitting there while I’m alt tabbed or away from keyboard. Other than my home on IMVU, the cottage is my rosy bubble.
Another weekly collection of photos that I have taken on the grid/Second Life, its been over the past couple of weeks as I haven’t been completely online all the time because of my new job
The above picture is my most recent shot that I took at Elysion (actually I uploaded it last night before bed) and I’m wearing a dress by Pink Cream Pie featured at Paying it Forward, the cute white mittens are by Katat0nik from the December round of Collabor88, my bunny companion is by Yokai, fluffy cardigan by Cynful released at FaMESHed December.
Having backgrounds or backdrops are my saviours when it comes to random photos, it can look like it is in another sim, but really its in front of my cottage. I have been doing those a lot lately as well. The above photo is a backdrop by Bruja, top is by Epoch from .Suicide DollZ., underwear is by Nana also from Suicide Dollz, the cheeky lollipop is from Catwa‘s main store.
Another photo taken at Elysion, in their Luxe theatre on the main stage. The stunning ball gown is by Moon Amore, it is their rare from their Phantom of the Opera inspired gacha released during this month’s round of The Arcade. Soon as I bought it, I knew I had to do something elegant and whimsical with it, for the musical itself has that otherworldly feel especially when Christine sings ‘Think of me’ in that poof white dress.
Again, this is a backdrop made by Minimal and I was going for something pink, cutesy and random. The pink subway was a perfect addition to my wintry look. My kitty ear muffs are made by Sweet Thing, part of her gacha that was released at The Arcade. The blush off-the-shoulder top is made by Tetra for a previous round of Collabor88. The Yakult bottle is a group gift of Zenith and the rings are by Yummy.
I have been on a roll with taking photos lately on Second Life, though I do not blog for fashion from there anymore, I shop for fun and randomly to save my money.
I have been hit by a creative spark with my photos and it seems because of it, it is reflecting in getting more likes than my usual 20. They have been varying in theme and colour, though pink of course is still present in some of them.
Some of them are focused on the seasons surrounding my avatar, some are focused on the features of my cottage or the new accessories that I have bought at the new round of events. These four pictures I am sharing are my recent shots I have uploaded, the below photo has recieved 47 favourites from the flickr followers, I haven’t recieved many likes in a while so quite happy with this achievement.
Two of them have been a pin-up theme from the recent round of Rewind which is all about the 1940s. The top photo is taken at Elysion sim on the roof of their Luxe theatre where they have burlesque shows every month. The second photo is taken in the comfort of my own pixel home, focusing on the amazing crystal rings by Yummy at this month’s round of Collabor88.
The third photo has a background made by Astralia which is featured in Rewind: 1940s this month and the lingerie is by Moon Elixir for the latest round of ROMP, an adult/kink event. The last photo is taken in a skybox on my home sim featuring the background house made by Foxcity poses for November round of Pocket gacha. The pose itself is also by Foxcity, top by Candydoll and shorts by Villena. My tentacle companion is by Katat0nik from last month’s round of Panic of the Pumpkin.
I literally haven’t been out and about taking photos in-world as much lately, I have been more so on Polyvore or been participating in my best friend Aria’s amazing pictures. I will shamelessly plug in her flickr right here. I will share about three pictures that I’ve taken over the course of the past few months but the fashion tiles that I normally do of my avatar, I guess I have let go and just take pictures for myself if feeling an inspiration hit.
The above photo was taken at Pink Acid/Black Bantam’s sim using one of the new windlights called ‘Crisp Foliage’, top is by Parfait and shorts by Zenith, so so cute! Before on Second Life I was always wearing pink, denim and black but nowadays my newest pictures have been changing. The mood is Autumn in the northern hemisphere and all the events have been releasing Halloween or fall clothing and I have been ‘swept’ up into it all. My clothes have been black, grey or the random Halloween costume thrown in.
The above photo is against the cherry blossom background by Astralia and I took it in July of this year. I think my fashion tiles that I’ll be sharing on this blog will be more focused from my Polyvore account. Though I am currently taking a break from continuing Ame’s outfits because her chronicles is on hiatus, I am still creating outfits but this time it’s for myself and I have been enjoying it.
