IMVU: Days of Glory

The past week or two I have made a resurgence in the virtual world known as IMVU, it was the place where I spent most of my young adulthood post high school. It was where I met my best friend in the U.S, Katie as well as and a handful of great girl friends. It is also where I roleplayed with multiple characters, had relationships, made enemies but overall had fun.

Majority of my friendship group have all moved on into reality and only a small collection of us are left and log on at random times, I been having a decor mood lately and IMVU has no prim limits when it comes to decorating your individual rooms and though you have to “dot hop” to get around the rooms and they aren’t all connected, it’s still fun to work with.

Realising that the manor I had put on public back in 2014 was too dark for my tastes and my style was much more light hearted and very pink nowadays, I changed this NYC apartment that originally belonged to my artistic roleplay character Elizabeth James of East Highland High to make it my own.

A place to hang out with the girls whenever we all sync up and are logged on all at once and can play tunes, dance and have fun. So far this week it’s been myself, Katie, Elie and Mez with random appearances from my boyfriend Aum showing up as well. They all love the very detailed room but I will say this right now, some bits were a pain to work on.

My bedroom upstairs on the second floor, this room wasn’t so hard to decorate, a lot of the frames and wall art could go on each wall where I wanted them to, if they weren’t angled right they could just be turned to face the right way. My room in reality has a lot of stuff in it, it is what I call organised chaos and though I certainly do not have the paddle rack or St Andrew’s Cross I definitely got the plushies, cute lights and books/paper everywhere.

It is my favourite room to be in when logged on IMVU, but my second place where I usually go AFK is at the below picture.

One level down below the big tv and gaming station (plus three big bears) is this small corner with the cat rug 😛 I realised I did not have enough room in the bedroom upstairs to set up a blogging desk like I have in my cottage on Second Life so made something much smaller and more cosy on ground floor. Got a virtual Skitty, laptop, Godiva milkshake and M&M’s to call this cosy corner my little space when I am AFK and out in reality.

The theme of pink, black and white is a re-occuring trend though bright colours stand out more in this New York city apartment, but one of my favourite pieces that I loved adding is the fashion and beauty aspect.

The giant closet with make-up box and a Minectaft library cube for kicks as well as shelves full of shoes, bags and let’s not forget those thigh-high leather boots, that was my inner Ame Hayato coming out when I added those in. Adding in a vanity table full of make up that is at the top of the stairs plus a shelf for snapback caps and more make-up/nail polish stashed on top of the drawers.

The added Japanese fashion and anime magazines were a bonus, three mannequins and of course all the soft toys a girl could dream of! This is my comfort zone when logging on but also a place of entertainment and socialising with friends.

Second Life: Summer Decor

June 1st brings in not just the FaMESHed but also the summer round of The Arcade and this time it feels quite special for me. Before the gacha event opened its doors to the public it had set up a new optional donation certificate on the marketplace.
Titled Friends of the Arcade it gave shoppers and bloggers alike to buy a certificate from the Second Life catalog which is also a donation and saying thanks for all the support to the people who attend.

Everyone who is close to me or anyone who has been following this new Luci Logs for the past three years know how much of an avid Arcade fan I am, I would happily spend the lindens at the main event and try and get in on every opening day of every seasonal round. I got myself certificate and therefore a couple days prior to opening got my own custom certificate with my in-world name printed on it. It now sits proudly on my wall in my blogging corner 😀

I did not get in on the opening day of this month even though I was already wearing my HUD, 15mins before opening time and had it spamming the sim. Though I was not sad or chucked a hissy fit on Second Life facebook like others did I went to the yard sale run by SeraphimSL blog as well as searching on marketplace. Only took me two days to clear out my wishlist from the event 😀

A lot of old gacha items around my cottage has been retired and removed to make room for the latest items from this new round of Arcade, dotted around my bedroom with the new clothing shelves made by Le Primitif or the clipboards and pampered decor by Tres Blah, its out with the old and in the new. I even changed my hot chocolate maker by What next to the rare coffee machine again made by Tres Blah. Kitchen and dining looking tidy and yet it’s connected to me as a person and what I like.

Also who said a girl can’t have too much make-up? This eyeshadow palette and the lipstick stand are both made by Little Bones who is known for her hair, but for the Arcade she made exquisite make-up! 😀 Had to remove some things from my trunk to add these beauty products.

Diary: 3 Day Break

I been given three days off this week which gives me extra time to try and get rid of this bloody cold once and for all. It also gives me time and energy to stay ahead for my work group’s Fitbit challenge that finishes tomorrow night. Today was all about the exercise I did a 5.7km walk around my suburb and despite being sick I managed to do it with no problem 😀 Yesterday it was about cleaning and re-decorating my bedroom.

I got myself new flannel sheets to keep warm this winter as well as pom pom garlands that are strung across the head of my bed and a new light for my bedside table, it is a pink heart with mini lights run by battery. Also vaccuumed and dusted so quite happy in how my room looks at present and hopefully got rid of any lingering virus germs that are sitting around.

Tomorrow night I will be going out for an 8pm dinner with all my high school girls, organised by my bestie Mei I just hope that it doesn’t go too late as I have 4 days of AM shift to return to at work >.<

Second Life: Arcade add-ons

This new round of The Arcade has given me more decor to add to my cottage in Savoy, though I didn’t go as crazy as I did back in December, I still got a couple of things.

Near the main entrance of my cottage I have both the cat vase by Tres Blah sitting near the lantern and mailbox plus Dust Bunny’s bike as my second mode of transportation.

On the side of my house out near the pond with my two fishies, I have a family of unicorns made by Half-Deer, they are part of the Unicorn story collection at Arcade

The hammie eating the strawberry is made by both O.M.E.N and Dust Bunny and the copper pots and pans hanging in the air plus the white shelf with dishes are by Vespertine under the Spring Kitchenette collection.

The sleeping kitty on the oranges is by O.M.E.N for his Mischievous kittens set and the fresh bearbread again from Vespertine’s collection.

Second Life: Fall Arcade

The craziness has started since yesterday with the opening of The Arcade with its Autumn edition, I have decided to not bother with it this year and have gone to the yard sales instead.

There is a fabulous one called Gachaopolis that is constantly re-stocked from the newest round and the lag isn’t too bad despite having so many other resellers/shoppers.

I managed to clean out majority of my wishlist except for the rings by Nylon Outfitters, I still need to get my ginger cat ring to represent Skitty of course.

The owner of Savoy, Hayden has kindly increased my prim limit so my kitchen area has gotten more detailed including all the fab items by Sari-Sari such as the fridge magnets and silver knife work next Zaara‘s golden ladles. I have an Arcade related fashion tile coming soon so stay tuned readers~

Second Life: Decor from The Arcade

Ok I editted my previous fashion tile to put all my furniture/decor from The Arcade into one single post- prepare for picture spam.

The Summer pudding on the far right is by O.M.E.N and the Ozoni soup in the middle is by Soul Mates from The Multicultural Menu, another event that also opened up on the 1st of June.

Nibbler (ginger kitty) is by O.M.E.N, rose stem and scrambled eggs brekkie tray by Erratic, so is my nightie its the rare lingerie in the gacha and the Princess slumber mask is by Olive.

The cook book on top of the microwave is by Vespertine, been wanting this a lot for personal reasons- as readers know I have been cooking a lot in reality and immensely enjoying it.

The jewellery box and the four journals are by David Heather, his vintage collection in Arcade.

Second Life: Home is Where my Heart is

I have yet another “Home” post for you all to read, looking back at when I first started to rent it and was sharing it with someone to how heavily decorated it is today is simply amazing.

This collage is the most recent update of my house, still living in Savoy sim but granted even more prims to play with to get high details in every room and outside 😀 I get to keep that cute lil garden I made for the fashion tile.

My blogger’s desk, more tiny knick knacks added but something that is just another side of my personality 😀

Make-up vanity on top of the fireplace in my bedroom, a lot more cosmetics are added as well as accessories/jewellery for a highly feminine look. If I had more room in my real life bedroom I would do this 😛
