Home Sweet Home

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things after taking several weeks off from most of my blogging and am getting excited about all the summery things coming out at events and main stores. My shopping addiction is back in full force!

Palm Readings and a semi-break

For the last couple weeks, I’ve been on a semi-break from blogging. I call it a semi-break because I only requested vacations from the more active stores. But then just as I was about to do that, I noticed Bee Designs was opening applications. I’m addicted to her gachas, of which she has MANY and the prospect of representing her brand, even if just in a blogger capacity was too tempting to pass up.

I honestly have no idea if this is what a palm reader’s place would look like but that’s the image I had in my head when I saw this set. It feels like something I’d love to stumble upon while wondering through a forest.

2018 Second Life Yearbook Challenge

This morning for her 11th rez day, Strawberry Singh did a live stream in which she answered questions posed by her readers and it got me to thinking of all the wonderful things I’ve learned since joining Second Life. Like Berry, my experiences in Second Life have changed me in positive ways I never expected. It’s given me a platform to put myself out there creatively, which I was always afraid of doing in real life. Now I know I’m capable of being artistic and sharing my creations and won’t die from rejection.

In her video and blog post, she also gave us a Second Life Yearbook Challenge. This is my second year doing it. I love her challenges because they tend to get me back on track and also force me to write a bit, which is something my blog has been missing since I started officially blogging for stores last year. You can check out my photo from last year’s Yearbook Challenge here.

take the plunge

A couple weeks ago I attended a live presentation at BVN with the focus being on collaborating with others. During the presentation, it was announced they’d be offering a challenge for bloggers to sign up to be paired with a fellow blogger for collaboration. I signed up and was paired with Kurimu Kuma. She has a very sweet style and look to her avi and her personality reflected that. She was also very patient with my constant scene tweaking and the fact that I kept getting distracted with customers AND the fact that I called on her at a moment’s notice because I had to reschedule our original time. This was the fourth person I’ve collaborated with and I think I’m starting to fear it less and appreciate it more for the challenge and for connecting me with people I might not otherwise have met. I’m really happy with the way the whole thing turned out.
