Winner of June/July “Name Your SL Age” Blogger Challenge

My apologies in making the announcement late. ¬†I’m still catching up with my blogging and all the recent events are not helping. ūüėõ¬†Having said that, we have our winner this month!

The decision was a no brainer as¬†Cindy Gedenspire wrote about her Fabulous Four and theory of numberology, a wonderful sharing that you shouldn’t miss! ¬†Cindy has won a L500 gift card or store credit from one of the sponsors of my blog.

In case you forgot, The “Name Your SL Age” blogger challenge is still running and we are now into our third month. ¬†Every month, on the 21st, I will pick a winner from the monthly submission and at the end of the 12th month, I will pick a grand prize and a second prize winners where the prizes will involve lindens and shopping points sponsored by designers and shopping mall. Want to know more about the blogger challenge and how you can participate? check out my “Name Your SL Age Blogger Challenge Page”.

While we have our latest winner, that means the July/August cycle has started. ¬†If you are a July or August baby, have some fun by doing this blogger challenge while celebrating your rezz day. ‚̧

Writer Block Challenge

My PC has given up on me since three days ago and until it is repaired, I am logon using a rather old laptop and living in the world of lags, without shadows. >.<

If you have sent me messages recently and haven’t heard back, chances are I have lost them because that’s exactly what happened – my PC automatically shut down a few seconds after I logon. ¬†Please resend your messages in notecard if you need to reach me.

So, what have I been up to in the world of lag? I organized a very small part of my inventory, as well as entertaining myself with some stylings. ¬† I miss blogging a lot but there’s nothing fancy I could do with the pictures until I am back on track with my PC.

Having said that, I remember this ¬†blogger challenge called “Writer Block Challenge” that I read on Portia’s blog and thought it is something doable with a plain picture, so here I am!

writer block SFF 1024

I remember chatting with a friend¬†sometime back ¬†about blogging and she told me she doesn’t quite know what to write for her post at times. ¬†This happens to everyone because there are days that we all have that mental block. ¬†I thought this challenge is the perfect guide for a “mental block” day.

Let me get into the challenge now!

Click here to read step 1 to 3 which talked about picking outfit and taking picture.

……..and starting from Step 4

4) Share your favourite thing about this outfit.  Is it the clothing? A new hairstyle?

This Tweed shirt and pants set, from Kaithleen’s, is¬†trendy and chic and easy to style as a formal business wear or a business casual wear for that dress down Friday. ¬†I always love tweed textures. ¬†It made one feels empowered.

Going for a semi formal look with this tweed set,  I added a soft colour blazer for a subtle contrast and some accessories to remind us Spring is here!

5) Why do you like this colour? These colours?

Blue is always an appealing colour on business wear because it is neutral, it is also the perfect colour on tweed textures, for that empowering look. ¬†I have choosen light blue because the tweed textures standout more and hey, it’s spring! ¬†I added a little pop of green to the overall ensemble, from the necklace and the clutch.

6) Are you accessorizing? If yes, why? If no, why not?

I accessorized with the wine necklace from Pure Poison and clutch from Olive and I used a semi casual updo hair for that effortless results, the same time making sure my neckline and necklace are not covered. ¬† I always liked to add a statement piece onto my styling and the Wine necklace, with butterfly and flowers, is just the right touch for me, while the Olive purse that shouts “Fresh” adds a little playful essence to my overall look.

7) Why this pose?

The Berry pose from Label Motion looks is sassy in a natural way.  The body language shows someone that is confident and relaxed, just the attitude I need for this look!

8) How do you feel in this particular outfit?

I feel trendy, chic and definitely empowering!

9) Post your credits here (don’t forget your posemaker).

Refine Six

I’m six today (May 20)!!¬†¬†Yes! Six years old! Wow! I can’t¬†believe it…..I am an old cow! ūüėÄ

Six years ago today I rezzed in this wonderful virtual world of Second Life, driven partially by curiosity and real life works.  This is the first virtual game I played and since then I never turned back.

I can’t believe it has been six years!¬† Six years¬†is¬†a long time¬†for me.¬† Not only many things have changed for me in SL,¬†I have been through a lot¬†in RL for the past six years¬†too but I am glad I have always¬†had SL by my side¬†on those bright or¬†gloomy days.¬†¬†I see¬†turning¬†six¬†as a great milestone, in fact a fabulous achievement in SL.¬† Looking back, I have grown a lot in SL¬†and the¬†changes and experience I had,¬†have come to defined who I am in SL today.

The other day I overheard a friend describing her two-year son as the “Terrible Twos”, and I thought if¬†I have to call¬†six years old¬†something what would I call it?

For six years, I have found my interest, my friends and myself in SL.¬† The journey has shaped and cultured me and make me who I am today, so I like to call it “REFINE SIX”.

Today, I like to treat myself to all things beautiful.¬† I have been admiring this Origami Galliano Dress from ChicZafari for some time now and¬†finally¬†bought¬†it as a rezz day¬†present to myself; and I am lucky to have this beautiful Iconic Heels from BSD Design and the Persia Clutch from Pure Poison that when I put all together, is a well defined look.¬†¬†For the details of what I am wearing, do check my style card below. ūüôā

rezz day 1 1024

rezz day 2 1024

I always believe there is a story behind of every life, or every age in this case.¬† Strawberry Singh did a “Draw my life” on youtube on her 6th rezz day and as much as I love to participate, I am a complete noob in making a video.¬† Hence, instead of doing that, I¬†deviated and had some fun naming my¬†SL age.¬† I called mine the “Refine Six” and I am going to celebrate my rezz day today by kick starting a mini blogger challenge, something that I have always wanted to do for quite sometime now.

I am calling this a “Name Your SL Age” Blogger Challenge.¬†¬† This will be a year long blogger¬†challenge starting today (May 20, 2013)¬†and ending on my rezz day next year (May 20, 2014).¬† If you are interested, please read more about the challenge here! ūüôā

Have a great week everyone and for those in Canada, Happy Victoria Day!! Don’t feel shy¬†to comment below or¬†pop in my box inworld¬†to catch up.¬† I love to hear from you! ūüôā

Three SL Wishes Meme

Welcome to my second Meme post, responding to the blogger challenge championed by Strawberry Singh. ūüôā¬† You can read about my first Meme post here.

I hopped from the first Meme topic to the most recent one because I find this one¬†really interesting, partially because I am a “what if” person and always day dreaming about some¬†“if” situations, so this is just a perfect one for me. ūüėõ

Rose + Solidea + shi + ison 2048

…and here it goes…

So you’re walking along the beach, kicking at the sand and you notice a magic lamp hidden under a rock. You pull it out and rub it, because what else would you do with a magic lamp? Out pops a genie and is ready to grant you three wishes, any three wishes to do with your SLife.

1. I wish the Firestorm viewer would offer a calender feature¬†that also works as an organizer that I could mark all my SL appointments as well as¬†events that I like to follow on the respective date and time,¬†for example¬†a fashion show, a deadline, a fair,¬†friends’ rezz days, wedding days and etc.¬† This¬†Organizer will also send me¬†alerts as the appointment and event draw closer.¬† It would be awesome if it could be something that work similarly to the Microsoft Outlook, that I could file the respective¬†landmark, notecards and perhaps¬†my prepared outfit that with a few clicks I would be all¬†ready¬†as soon as the alarm goes off.¬† Call me lazy, call me super OCD, but would it be cool if you have this to make our Second Life a little more easier? ūüėõ

2. I wish Linden would increase its’ weekly allowance. Afterall, the more we spend in SL, the more it will help with the SL¬†economy. ūüėõ¬† Seriously, I so wish I have enough skills to get a good paying (and decent)¬†job in SL to help me pay for my rent and shopping sprees.

3. I kinna mentioned this¬†in my first Meme post….I wish I will be able to own a sim one day with a fantasy theme that I will be able to offer store space to some of my lovely designer friends¬†here; and on my sim a genie that could grant me another 3 wishes. ūüėõ

If you have read my first Meme post, you will know that I love to delete stuffs in my inventory and sometimes too much so on second thought, I also wish we have an undo button for our inventory, to undo items that I have accidentally deleted in the trash or sentences on the notecards.

My Meme style today is a punk queen because my Genie said so! ūüėÄ

Have a great weekend everyone.¬† Do¬†join¬†the Meme Blogger Challenge if you like and feel free to leave your link in my comment box so¬†me and other readers¬†could read about yours. ūüôā
