Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! (click here for a raw shot)

The countdown has begun! Two hours till turkey time and I can’t wait to stuff my face with it, but I did want to take a moment to be thankful.

Luckily I have a lot to be thankful for in real life, however I was thinking the other day how fortunate I feel to have also found Second Life. Not only is it a source of great adventure and inspiration for me, I have met and made such strong bonds and friendships with people from all over the world which I know will last a lifetime.

Through this blog I have also found a voice within myself that I didn’t really know existed. I often get feedback from you guys sharing your thoughts, advice or suggestions for me. Earlier in the year you guys were also there for me during one of my most troubling times. You really don’t know how much I truly appreciate that.

This year I have been nominated for four Avi Choice Awards: Favorite Fashion Stylist, Favorite Fashion Photographer, Favorite Fashion Blogger and Favorite Fashion Blog. It’s not that I feel being nominated for any of these kinds of awards makes a huge impact on my blog or myself in general, but what it does do is make me feel thankful and appreciative to all those that thought of me, even for just that second, when writing my name down.

I often use Second Life to create imagery that helps me process what I’m feeling or going through at the time. Whenever I do that, I notice quite a few of you reach out to ask if I’m ok. This kind of connection we have, even though we are complete strangers who only interact through this insane thing that we call the internet, is a connection that somehow has more depth and compassion than those in the real world at times.

So I’m thankful, for you and for all that you do for me. It’s a lot more than you think. And yes, I’m ok.

Happy Thanksgiving! <3

Berry Nice Shoes

I don’t think I’ve ever written a “berry” pun in my titles before so hopefully you’ll forgive me this time, I couldn’t resist. The shoes I’m wearing are named Berry so you know, it had to be done. The lovely Lyrical Ember asked me to blog with her and since I’m on this journey to […] Continue reading →

Meet My Bratty Nephew Ron

Inworld he’s known as coolron28 and on plurk he’s known as RonZoon or whatever display name he has chosen that day. He’s the brat that charmed me with his adorable, witty humor and made me want to adopt him. I’m not sure how he became my fake internet nephew, but all I know is one day […] Continue reading →

Just one of them days

Today has been completely exhausting. There were too many people in my house and everyone was all up in my face, it really was just one of those days. I finally get to sit and relax a bit and take a breather. I’ve been thinking over a lot of things this past month. I know […] Continue reading →

Innocent Rivalry

This month’s theme for TLC (The Liaison Collaborative) is Dangerous Liaisons. I’m still wearing the thigh holster from Plethora that I blogged a few days ago. This time I added the gun and pose from the Femme Fatale set from Le Poppycock to add to the bad-ass look. I dunno though, I think my face […] Continue reading →

Second Life Friends List Meme

Dreams

(click here for a raw shot) Do you ever dream about Second Life? I don’t actually mean just Second Life itself, but the people you meet in it. I don’t dream often about it, but once in a while I may have a dream about a friend inworld or people on plurk or twitter. Recently […] Continue reading →

The Break-Up!

After a long, hard day at work, I came home today to find a woman standing in my kitchen. As I got closer I realized that the woman was none other than my fake husband! So not only have I had to put up with his constant cheating (reference) now he’s cross-dressing. I wouldn’t even […] Continue reading →

I Got Partnered!

So there I was just a few days ago, minding my own business and reading what the plurkers were up to on my timeline. When I noticed the biggest bratty troll on plurk, Mr. Ewan Mureaux (whom you can never really take seriously) had put up an application because he was looking for slove. Of […] Continue reading →

Second Life Helpful Tools Meme

A while back Shug Maitland contacted me with a suggestion for a meme. Her suggestion was, “What is your Window On The World” where she requested that everyone show a screenshot of their viewer setup, the way they normally see SL, including the Huds, Floaters, Button layout, etc. I didn’t really know how to do […] Continue reading →
