I'm not a Roleplayer in sl but lately I've been thinking that I might give it a try. I think it's fun, something new to do in sl and the clothes are amazing like the one I'm wearing in the photo. made me feel like I'm in middle-earth or somewhere magical. Caverna Obscura never dissapoints. I just love her stuff and the arrows in the photo are photoshop but you can find something similar in-world at PCF
You know sometimes I wish I'm fluent with english so I can express whatever is on my mind. I'm listening to Youth, a Dubstep Remix by Adventure's Club and it got me thinking about my youth. I love the Lyrics " Don't tell me our youth is running out, It only just begin " I think this should be my birthday song since I will be celebrating it this month though I'm not born in the 50's. I'm a 90's kid. I feel like wearing a fashion from the past.

Strawberry Singh posted a challenge HERE . to list 5 pieces of advices you would give to a newcomer that has joined Second Life. I first came to second life when I was fed up from the fashion games in Facebook like mallworld. after completing daily quest . there's nothing more to do. I have to wait til tomorrow to do the same thing. it gets boring. I was also playing World of Warcraft at that time (and still am). it was the Wrath of the Lich King period. I was blood drunk from all the pvping, raiding that I wanted a game other than killing each other lol. then I found Second Life, I came here alone and have encountered some challenges so, here are my 5 list of advice.
1. Play Moderately. for someone who have been playing video games since elementary (blame it on my bros). second life can be addicting. some attraction of sl is you can be anyone you wish to be, you can shop, talk, date, play while doing it anonymously without leaving home. it's unhealthy playing too much, don't make this your world. you need to get out there, have a social life! it's all about balance. never neglect your First Life.
2. Skins Varies depending on Shape. when I was new. I didn't know the difference between skin and shape. I thought shape is for the body and skin is for the face. I didn't know the shape affects the facial features. I used to be frustrated every time I like a skin and I don't look exactly like the vendor ad. I thought skins gives a fix facial look like the ones on the vendor but it doesn't. if I want the same look I need to get the same shape that was used with the skin
3.If you can't find it, it's in the Object Folder. I remember purchasing an item and can't locate it, after minutes which seems like hours I found it in my Object folder then surprised that I got a box instead! those are the days haha and I'm like what the...I didn't purchase a box! some items are packed in a box and you have to unpack it that's why there are free to use public sandboxes to unpack things.
4. Set/Fix your Windlights to Neutral. don't depend on region windlights that changes depending on SL inworld time. you don't want to shop with a midnight enviromental setting do you? esp if you are demoing a skin. that time I just got a new skin and I can't figure out why I look so ugly sometimes, I didn't know it's my windlights. then one time I went shopping it was evening in-world. I have to wait till there's a sunlight coming through the place so I can take a better look at the item. yeah, I was a newb. .a cute newb. Check Strawberry Windlight Settings HERE
5. Don't be scared if you see avatars with massive boobs and beyond normal ass walking around. don't question their fashion taste, don't ask them why their boobs are so big or why their hips are so wide apart. don't even think of asking them..just don't. *wink.
I hope you find this helpful even though English is not my strong suit.
I'm dressed as an Elven Princess today because some days it gets boring being human (now, don't deny it). I'm a little bit down lately but SL shopping made it better. yes! shopping is therapy. I'm wearing a big fancy gown that royalty normally would wear by Junbug for Fit For a Princess event and paired it with Evie's Closet and keystone jewelry.
oh did I mention I love Mesh heads? MHC offers Full permission heads you can use to edit, re-sell or for personal use. it does not include head alpha and the head is attached to a neck. keep in mind you need 3D software and photoshop knowledge if you decide to make one.
and I changed my Blog Banner hehe, hope you like it

I'm obsessed with mesh heads, I know some are not but I am! I think I've tried every heads available in-world and on marketplace and I get pretty excited every time a designer makes one. I like mesh heads better than regular skins and one of my favorite is from Cheos called Leila. It's a bit pricey for a head that lacks expression and very limited make-up option but take a look at her face (she reminds me of old hollywood beauties) and those lips! yum <3

Hair: Pompadour - " Cheveux Harlow "
Head: Spirit Store - " Cheos Leila " (it comes with eyes,skin,eyelashes and Day/Night make-up)

Boots: G -Field - " Long Cuff Boots Will in Peach "

I have to admit I was never a fan of Glam Affair untill recently, I'm impressed on how pretty Romy looks in Becky Head from sLink. for some she may look too young but I prefer young. with the right hair, eye color, tone and windlights. I think she can transition from being a doll to almost realistic. retail price for this is only 218 Lindens but lacks eyebrows/makeup options. I'm hoping Aida would release makeup addons in the future.
For my outfit and the flower band you'd find them at Forest Spring Concert. a mini event featuring designers known for their kawaii creations.
In other news my picture was featured in New World Notes Blog. gosh! who doesn't read nwv? this basically made my day! I was like, okey let's check nwv and read some newness then Boom!! whattt daaaa.... that's my pic! so, a big thank you to Iris and for the traffic haha.

Don't you just love sLink Visage Mesh Heads, by now I think everyone is familiar with it. the expressions alone are worth the purchase. SL skins will never be the same.. ever! thanks to Siddrean Munro. as a skin addict I welcome change esp if the change is a good one. I like trying on demos and testing them under my windlights because I am after a realistic look. so far, Adam N Eve Head appliers did not dissapoint. I can honestly say, I love the texture, the skin details and the freckles just made it more natural. I hope she'd make an Asian head appliers for her future release.
I am wearing the Emma Head with Amy Duo set, Adam N Eve exclusive for the Skin Fair 2014 (for map & LM go HERE) . you get 2 skins for for each brow color Dark, Blonde, Red and a cleavage, dehance and freckles tattoo. additional Make-up add ons can be purchase separately. Some of her skin/mesh head appliers are at sLink West so be sure to drop by!
Here we go again.. I still can't believe it's year 2014 for Skin Fair, feels like yesterday (more like last year 2013). one of the perks of being a blogger is we get early access to events before it opens to the public. I was there running around getting demos and I came across Kelly Skin and O-M-G! she is so beautiful. I've always liked Tuty's, I have a few of their skin and she is one of my favorite skin designer. I hope she'll make skin appliers for Slink Visage Mesh head coz when it comes to authentic Asian beauty. Tuty's get it right and she makes really cool make-ups!
For this Skin I like that I get to choose from 3 tones. I'm wearing the darkest shade called Fawn. skin comes with 14 make-ups
Hmmm.. i think I've missed a few(makeups) to photograph. fatpack only cost L1,500 (very good price) and yes, appliers are sold separately for Lolas tango and Phat azz (finally!) and with Teeth and eyebrows tattoo (wearing it in the photo).
Each face inlcudes 4 options:
bald - cleavage
hair - cleavage
Skin fair opens March 14-30
