The problem I find with most tutorials is that they are guides to enhance a skill you already have. It’s difficult to ever find a tutorial that assumes you don’t know how anything works, or what to do. So for SL10B this year, I decided my contribution would be the sort of tutorial I’m always trying to find – a tutorial for people like me who haven’t a CLUE how to do something.
For many people, there’s tweaks and adjustments that make them and their avatar unique. Some of the best bloggers though, are those who control their light and force the grid to do their bidding without the aid of PS or other tools.
You have to start somewhere, and making something simple is always the best way. So what I’m going to do is teach you the way I learned. Who knows, maybe you’ll be a new Strawberry Singh or Gogolita when you get good enough at it. Cajsa’s a pro, but this is beginner stuff. This is how to do it if you really really don’t even know where to start. Continue reading →
Nzuri held it’s relaunch party this past weekend and there was a lingerie party held to celebrate. I dithered forever at what to wear, because, while I LOVED everything, my pixel girl is a bit modest when it comes to lingerie and there was SO MUCH super sexy there, I had trouble deciding what to wear.
I settled on a practical bra and panty set with garters called Anya in a gorgeous red texture and nice hand drawn details that make me admire the work that went into it. Perfect for blogging oh say – NEW SKIN.
And with that, let me introduce you to a beautiful new skin from Belleza called Lily. I love Tricky’s work always – and this one is no exception. It comes in 20 different makeups and six skin tones. I’m wearing pale. We blondes bitch and moan a LOT when brows don’t suit us, so girls – RUN DON’T WALK.
Lily also has red brows and dark brows avail on the tattoo layer.
Beautiful work as always, Tricky.

It occurred to me recently that since I am no longer land locked on mainland, I should not only spend time looking at the water, but actually in the water since that was a huge part of my attraction for moving.
So last night I opened my deck doors and jumped into the lagoon for no other reason than I could. Continue reading →
There’s been an absence in my Second Life® and in the lives of many others for the past two months. A dear friend, Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, has been struggling with illness. She is now out of hospital and working hard to recover and find the strength to keep fighting for her health.
I remember when I was sick last year how she would IM me all the time to ask after my health and share her hope and concern for me. There were times when I felt really low and the love and friendship I found in Second Life lifted my spirit and gave me strength. I hope those of us whose Second Lives have been touched by her art, her imagination and her work as well as those who have come to know her kind and gentle spirit can do the same for her.
Let us send her messages of love, encouragement and support to lift her spirit and give her strength so that she comes back to us soon with renewed strength and good health.
And to that end, many of us have joined together in a project to highlight the fabulous Donna Flora (Marketplace) designs that have beautified our world from A to Z. Over the next week, there will be many more posts added to this abecedarian list highlighting her amazing work. The original plan was to post them all on one day, but so many people wanted to participate, it became clear that it made more sense to spread them out over a week and I am sure more will want to join. This post will stay sticky for the next week so you can find it easily until the project is completed.
