#BecauseOfSecondLife Challenge!

you're gonna miss me when I'm gone

It’s Monday so I thought I would do another one of my Monday Memes today. Today’s challenge is brought to you by Mr. Draxtor Despres. He poked me this morning and said he was starting a new hashtag on Twitter:

And you know me and my love for fun hashtags, so I just HAD to play along:

Meme Instructions: Use the hashtag #BecauseofSecondLife in your blog posts and/or on any social network (especially twitter) and share how becoming a Second Life resident has affected you! 

I already shared my contribution above but here are a few more that I thought I would share in my post here, which I might tweet later (will link them if I do):

  • #BecauseofSecondLife I have best friends that live on the other side of the planet.
  • #BecauseofSecondLife I learned how to use Photoshop.
  • #BecauseofSecondLife I learned it’s perfectly normal for hundreds of people to send random friend requests inworld on a daily basis to people they’ve never spoken a word to.
  • #BecauseofSecondLife I try to cam around different websites to see the other side of them.
  • #BecauseofSecondLife you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone and I will miss you too.
  • #BecauseofSecondLife I have an addiction to memes and blog challenges.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

Yesterday was May 1st and with that a whole bunch of Second Life shopping events have started (some of them absolutely new) so I wanted to make a list of the ones I know about:

  • Luxe Box SL – If you are into the monthly subscription boxes in the real world, you are going to love Luxe Box! I signed up for the Sephora Play Box in the real world recently and yesterday I also joined the Luxe Box group inworld. Even though I won’t know what exactly I’m getting, I figured it would be a fun experiment. It’s only L$1000 to join the group right now and the designers they have participating this month are among my favorites. I’ll let you guys know once I receive the box how it all went and what I think. If I like it, I’ll definitely continue signing up each month. I think it’s a fun and exciting concept for SL.
  • BuyNow! – This is also a new event which is marketplace focused so no more full sims and continuous banging on the teleport button. You can check out their website to see which designers are participating and what they are offering this month. Then click on the link to their marketplace store to purchase. Simple, quick and painless, just the way shopping should be!
  • FaMESHed – is celebrating 4 years of shopping this year! They have 58 designers participating this round that will be bringing brand new exclusives as well as lots of gifts! To claim the gifts you need to be part of the FaMESHed Update Group. They were supposed to open yesterday but there were some technical difficulties with the sim so they will be opening today, May 2nd at 12pm SLT.
  • Mix – Mix is another event that won’t give you any problems with lag and teleporting since you need to go to each designer’s store to shop this event. To make it easier for you, they have their HUD available for FREE on marketplace which you can use to hop, skip and teleport over to the different stores participating.
  • The Gacha Garden – The skin applier and the crown and necklace I am wearing in this post are available at The Gacha Garden. The skin is from Glam Affair and the jewelry is from The Forge.

Genesis Lab Giorgia Mesh Head

(click here for a raw shot) Genesis Lab has released a mesh head at Shiny Shabby this month and I really feel like it fits me well. I adore the big, beautiful eyes and love the side profile as well because the nose is a much more prominent one in comparison with other mesh heads. The designer based it […] Continue reading →

Social Media Meme

Older and Wiser

I’m not saying that now that I’m older I’m oozing with intellect, but I do feel a bit wiser about many aspects of life in general. That doesn’t really count for my Second Life though because I still feel like a total newb at times. I’m going to be 9 years old in SL in less than two […] Continue reading →
