Because To Me It Should Be Fun And Joyous

Ignore that weird red thing in my pictures. What the hell is that? I don’t actually know and honestly – it’s irrelevant to what I’m on about today. I’m not fixing it, because there are three other things in this pic I’d change if I could and I’m also not gonna edit them.  Maybe it’s a ghost. An SL ghost. Yeah, that’s it. OK – back to what i AM on about.

So I’m sitting on three extra Tres Jolie Makeup bags. I’ve been wondering what I should do with them. I’m a big old school about Gacha. I love it. I remember the glee of running up and down the row at Albero pulling and just being giddy about whatever you got. I remember grabbing a bunch of random stuff and making blog posts. It was fun. It was joyous.

I feel that same glee with the Arcade. I LOVE pulling to complete sets, scouring yard sales for things I really want. The joy of the hunt SUCKS me in. I probably dropped more at Arcade this time than ever and NO REGRETS. It’s really one of my favorite things.

But I always get, I dunno, a bit of a twinge when I see rares out for sale insanely over priced. I mean, I guess sure if you can get it. But it doesn’t feel right to me. So I’ve been thinking since I had these and they’re lovely I wanted to do something with them and I didn’t know what.

Then this morning after being annoyed with someone and their behavior a lovely idea came to me. I’m going to give them away.

Leave a comment on this blog post WITH your SL Name – not your screen name please help me find you – and also, write a paragraph or two about your FAVORITE SL BLOG that isn’t yours. Tell me why you like it. What’s fun. Link a blog post I should read maybe.

On FRIDAY I will select three winners and send them the bags. That’s easy right?

And, behold the back of this necklace. Pretty stunning isn’t it?

    I have found so many SL blogs that I love. I could name the usual favorites such as like Strawberry Singh’s and Gogo’s blogs. But I am going to tell you about Brandi Monroe’s blog. Although she has over 400 wordpress followers it is possible you might not have seen her blog. Or maybe it will be a new find to one of your readers. Brandi’s pictures are always well done and pleasing to the eye. You can see all of the items she is blogging without them looking messy or thrown together. She credits and links the blogged items. Her posts aren’t long and wordy, but I don’t always need a story to see what is new in fashion or decor. You can check out her blog here . If you want fun, check out this silly pup from her blog images Which is something I need to go shop for!

    I’ve always enjoyed reading Ember Adored’s blog, Paperdolls. She’s an old-school blogger, and she’s one of the people who gave me my start in blogging as well! She tends to keep her writing short and sweet, focusing more on the photos and the items than anything else…and she’s extremely approachable inworld, always eager to help people out, super happy to talk about whatever she’s wearing at the moment…she’s really knowledgeable and likes to help out if she can.
    She also wrote a series of tips and tricks for new and established bloggers that’s super helpful!!

    I find myself really enjoying the collaborative blog – I found it via one of its contributors on Flickr whose style I really admired and who also has a personal blog, but I enjoy the mix of styles on Poison Girls, it covers a fairly broad spectrum of SL fashion without any of it going to far into an extreme – it’s all very accessible.

    Man, I remember the fun of Albero. I love the beautiful things everyone makes at Arcade, but Albero gacha events were just so FUN and silly, just grabbing an armful of things and distributing them to your friends based on their favourite colours and then just goofing around. Good times <3

    I don’t have a blog to comment on, but what I did wish to tell you is I think this is a lovely idea! And you are a lovely person for thinking of it! ♥
