Second Life: Comforts of Home



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 this month recent as it was taken featuring the cutesy food made by Tentacio. It was released at 6republic earlier this month, its theme was Canada vs Japan. The adorable ginger girl is by Black Bantam and one of the rares that were released at Kustom9 in December 2015.

I even changed the wardrobe that I had from Birdy’s Boudoir to Nomi’s Princess closet that was released for the Gacha Gardens again earlier this month. It is more prim heavy but it had more detail and its pink, of course it had to be part of my bedroom. That side of the cottage is my favourite place to be parked in if I’m not going shopping or going to that new club that was introduced to me by one of my besties Aria.

Can you believe the above photo was taken outside of my cottage using the books background by Astralia, I love to read in reality, I have a wardrobe full of books and manga plus over thirty virtual books saved on my Kindle. Reading books with a cat on my lap, makes it even better as long as it is not hot outside as we are approaching the beginning of Summer here in Australia.

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 likes and hobbies, one side is make-up and taking pictures, the other side is painting and plenty of books. I have a lot of books in my cottage now that I think about it.

My favourite piece in the above photo is the white kitten by Half-Deer listening to its own tunes on the iPhone, so cute.

Everyone knows what my blogging desk looks like by now, doesn’t matter what I have removed (or added) it will always be the same clustered, chaotic mess as before. For friends who have seen my real life desk at home, it is exactly the same.

Second Life: Pretty Pics




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.

Fashion Tile: Love you Better



I know, I know!Β I said I wouldn’t be doing anymore Second Life fashion tiles and switching more to Polyvore or something along the lines but this inspired me three days ago when I was taking a mush picture with the boyfriend.

Second Life: Pink Filler




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.

Diary: Likes and Challenges

diary
Today’s post might be a little bit lengthier than usual because I am including Strawberry Singh‘s challenge that she just posted today, she used to do them on a weekly occurance but reality can get quite busy as you and I all know. Anyway this week has been a blur, I been working all PM shifts, only four nights and been full speed into my fantasy series, I have notes for all 3 books now and I think I will keep it to a trilogy even though they all got heaps of content.

I have also decided that I will professionally bind them so they can be read like a book and passed around to anyone in my family or friends can read it (that’s if they enjoy the fantasy genre of course). I’ll be sharing my five positive thoughts before doing the challenge.

  • Miraculous has a premiere date for Season 2! October 26th!! Shadowhunters has a date for Season 3, April 3 (It’s far away but still yay, also the new footage looks amazing)
  • Spent the entire weekend with my boyfriend on SL ❀
  • Ka.lu.el got to have a catch up on IMVU, Elie has been busy moving in reality so it was great to see her again
  • I am 84 pages into Book 1 of my Seven realms series, been discussing with best friend Mei and told her character deaths…she isn’t happy with me again ^^;
  • No big problems at work this past week, to have a relaxed but productive day at work is a blessing πŸ˜›

Now giving you a couple of my Second Life facts, Strawberry has written seven so I shall try and give you 7 too
Β 

  • My Second Life fact #1: I am a horrible shopaholic, I was worse before the Europe trip but I love to dress up my pixels and I spent my real life work money to buy lindens..
  • My Second Life fact #2: I can’t stand Alpha men and spoiled baby girls, I know two dear friends who are in that lifestyle in reality and they have explained Babygirls are not want the thots are in-world at all! Alphas also are insecure, little dick men who also fall under the category of your generic pup (fuck boy)
  • My Second Life fact #3: I’m usually parked in my cottage, it is my rosy bubble and my safe place, quite often the people around the grid make me roll my eyes at their stupidity
  • My Second Life fact #4: I love to take photos, which is why I have that Flickr account and always sharing pictures on my blog
  • My Second Life fact #5: Anything pink, cutesy, magical or cat related I will buy it almost immediately whether in-world store, event or gacha form. It will be mine!!
  • My Second Life fact #6: I met the love of my life online, three years ago. On 13th October 2014 to be precise πŸ˜› And then we met in reality in September of this year πŸ˜€
  • My Second Life fact #7: I have been growing meh about Second Life lately, with my novel writing and socialising more on my pixel network that is IMVU, I probably log on maybe 3-4 days a week and spend less than 3hrs on it, unless of course there is a new event that is calling my shopaholic side..

I hope this satisfies the challenge and yay to Strawberry Singh for bringing them back again, they are so much fun to do!

Second Life: Dark side of the Moon




Where the moon filters it’s light upon the Earth, it also casts its shadow. Like the yin to the yang, every person has a light and a dark side including myself. I usually just share my pink outfits and all my light-hearted attitude but I do have a darkness and usually comes through in my fetishes or my love for violence through dark fantasy or action films. I like staying up until very late whether writing my novel or watching Netflix, I find serenity during a full moon and favour Autumn and Halloween though I am born in a southern hemisphere Summer.

I prefer my lingerie black and meshy with faux fur and a weakness for harnesses, garnesses and shibari all together. Give me ribbons to bound and a blindfold to make me blind and it gives me the warm fuzzies in the pit of my stomach. A lot of my moderate photos on Second Life that show a decent amount of flesh I usually buy in the monotone colours while my pixel clothes tend to be in the reds and pink variety. I adore the erotic side of BDSM especially when it comes to kitten play and the Japanese art of shibari though its origin was no way playful and used in the bedroom.

I also like to mix the seductive nature with the violent tendencies that came out when I’m in an irritable mood. My favourite weapon is the katana, I have one in reality that leans on the wall next to my giant fan from Shanghai and it is the main weapon that my original character Ame Hayato wields in her chronicles. My avatar on both IMVU and Second Life have over 5 on each at least and I still keep finding more whenever a creator releases something new in the catalog or a gacha event.

My best friend Katie had told me that males seem to have a strong favour towards Asian women with weaponry, I have no idea that is perhaps the anime/hentai side that has given that appeal especially with girls wearing short skirts but carry weapons as long as their body. I personally love to pose my avatar in the sexy outfits and holding the katana or knives, there is something pleasantly appealing to it and gives me a boost of confidence when complimented on the look or the picture is given a favourite from someone visiting my Flickr.

Second Life: Flurry of Pink



No new tile today coming from the grid, just a lot of random pictures that I have been taking since returning from my month holiday, I have to admit that the release of cuter, pink items is making a comeback again and I’m so glad it is.

MishMish released an adorable bear in the September round of Collabor88 and it is either a companion, a plushie to cuddle or decoration for your home. Close friends know I have a weakness for teddy bears I see them as the guardians for kids when they sleep, I also still have my very first bear since I was born, One-Eye Jack. The pretty pink building in the background is actually HolliPocket‘s store, there was lag present on the sim so I could take a photo without the furniture inside.

I sometimes visit the very first store that I shopped in back in 2013, it was originally called Crazy Kitty, now renamed Candy Kitten, the owner is Kaci Kohime and she has slowly changed her theme to something that the babygirls in BDSM would love. The sim I’m on hers is her store but this little cafe with ice-cream out the front is outside the main entrance and to the left. My top is by Hilly Haalan, the cute traveller bag with camera is from Reign‘s gacha from the September round of the Arcade, the Hungry necklace is by E.marie from PocketGacha, a new event where there is no sim and you can just play by a hud, no lag, no worries.

Taken in the comfort of my home, see the MishMish bear in the corner, I got two colours, one for a companion the other as decoration in my bedroom. As I have said in previous entries, I am usually quite often parked inside my cottage because it is my safety bubble and comfort zone away from the toxic personalities of the people on Second Life. The outfit I’m wearing is my most comfortable, if not in the pyjamas. The cute hoodie is by Sweet Thing from the current round of Kustom9 and the underwear are by Violent Seduction

If I’m not parked in my cottage I go wandering and usually on my own though this week I have been enjoying the company of one of my best friends online Aria. The above picture is taken outside the main store of Aii, she creates fantasy and Japanese inspired clothing. My garments are made by Zenith in the new round of Kustom9, as always she makes amazing mesh Oriental robes.

Second Life: Simplicity



Fashion tile inspiration is minimal lately as I have been saving up my money for the Europe trip, flying out in two days! Can’t believe it is finally here πŸ˜€ But I still take random photos and they are of the pink variation. Sharing four of them here for you all to check out.

This was a random outfit I created on the day, it was after I had done my complete shopping at The Crystal Heart festival and one of my dear friends Misa had created Catwa eyelashes and sent them to me as a gift. I am wearing one of them in the photo above, plus it was a cute outfit complete with holding Artemis in my arms πŸ˜›


This outfit was made just today and taken inside the photobooth at The Sugar Garden main store. Decided to attach its details since it is my latest outfit. I have been making so many outside my usual colour scheme of pink so returning to it today.

Top is from The Crystal Heart and the pose is made by Lyriqz Xue, he is going all bento and though majority of his poses are showing the rude fingers he has been making adorable poses including the above. His marketplace store is called Reve Obscura. Taken in the safety of my cottage with a pink windlighting. The sunglasses are by Imeka and hair by Truth.


The final photo is a bit of a nip tease with the bra made by Vision for the new subscription box catering to those of the lifestyle: Bound, I decided to get it after seeing other bloggers share the items on their pages. The Pusheen is from another subscription box that unfortunately has been cancelled due to the maker being dodgy in their transcations. Such a shame too because the designers that released items into that box were always so cute and magic girl. Taken on my home sim but the background is one of Astralia’s designs.
