what was I…

What was
OMG what was I thinking ~ seriously I went absolutely crazy at The Epiphany this month…see I know that gachas are absolutely my downfall and yet I ventured to have a list all prepared and WAM I just could not stop because I just HAD to have a specific rare, umm okay a couple specific rares was trying for and I got one but not the ones I was super trying for from Belle Epoch and Spectacledchic ~ usually I set limits so not sure what took place in my brain but I pulled and pulled and pulled on those machines and would have kept doing it but RL was calling me and when I got back am like what was I thinking since it is obvious I was not thinking at all ~ good thing my friends were recipients of my frenzy and still have leftovers…shrugging my shoulders and it is what it is and could have been a lot worse ~ what you see from the hair is Wasabi’s Britt in Ombre, the rest of the outfit was pants & t-shirt are from Belle Epoch ~ Epiphany Mirror site is open till February 12th and I wish you all the luck♥♥

We are baaack again…Dena and I are trying out one of the newest poses I got from the Pose Fair by “Something New” along with fiddling around with the LumiPro that it is really a great addition yet I will warn you LumiPro will cost you 6,995L for me it is worth every Linden ~ if you go to the Inworld Store you can try it out ☻  As well to remind you that if you do join the Pose Fair Group there are lotz of nice gifts for you ♥ If you are looking for new, fresh and interesting poses this is the place to grab them as with any events a lot of the prices go up once they bring them back into the store ~ the Pose Group is free to join if you are worried about price ~ that is it for me today ~ thank you all for taking time out to read, comment and continue to follow me ~hugzz♥♥ btw did you know this ketchup was used as a medicine back in the 1930’s ~ just a little fun fact for you ☻

Enjoying a moment…

Enjoying
Taking a moment just to sit, relax and really enjoy each other as our days have been hit or miss in SL lately…this is nice sipping on hot chocolate as he tells me how much snow he has gotten in RL as I look out my window and see nothing but rain ~ also gives me a chance to try some of the newest poses from Pose Fair ~ I wish that pose makers would give you pics of how it should look as I get confused wondering wtf is this pose to look like and end up just tossing it as not wanting myself to get frustrated either with the shot or the fit of the pose♥  The pose fair is still ongoing till the end of the month and I went overboard in the number of poses I did buy except that is nothing new along with all the gifts I did get a very nice selection of couples and single poses to use in the upcoming months ♥  That brings me my last comment I would like to make regarding Flickr, which is for me I cannot see myself spending hours upon hours looking, faving pics just to get a fave back…people are always recommending me to spend time faving everyone’s pics to get your numbers up ummm nope not gonna happen as when I fave a pic I truly love it ~ thats just how I have been and will be not saying this to suggest anything other than that ♥ with that I will leave you as RL is taking me away HUGZZZ♥♥

Have you…

Have
Have you ever gotten frustrated by asking a question in a group either gotten no response or someone else asks a question right after you and it gets answered immediately ~ that is my biggest pet peeves for groups as you know you could respond with “sorry I do not know” but you sit and wait for couple moments and someone else asks a question right away it gets answered and for me personally it feels personal that no one acknowledges you in a group with the exceptions if you disagree with a comment then its like all hell breaks loose…Yes, I am understanding people do come into groups at various times so they might see your question and when you ask again same thing takes place ~ truly makes you feel either invisible, not wanted in the group and you might as well never ask for an opinion or a question because you will get ignored ~ some groups are super and others well even the Mods are arrogant and at times rude ~ those that are like the latter I bite my tongue so I won’t get ejected and banned yet I should say how would you like to be bullied in a group setting as there are ways to answer a question without the rude or being snooty attitudes that I have seen…yes that is my rant for today ~ maybe am speaking for a lot or a little but it happens frequently in groups ~ in a place where kindness, understanding should be the norm especially when RL is cruel at times, heartless and unforgiving Second Life Residents should try a little harder to help one another ♥ just saying…my outfit is made up of various gifts that please check the credits ♥

winter time…

Winter
The air is always crisp and clean and with the snow falling the only noise is the crunch of your boots as you walk ~ Winter time is my favorite season especially when it starts snowing that soft fluffy kind that I grew to love living in Colorado…It is cold yet you dress for it in layers and layers, not like summer time when you can only take so much off and still it’s hot and humid ♥  One thing about snow that I do dislike and that is shoveling it ~ YUCK as I laugh remembering would rather pay someone to do ~ its like vacuuming another task am not fond of and yes I just might pay to have it done hehehe ~ today’s outfit is truly a little this & that ~ the sweater is a Marketplace find that has a promo of 99L and has a terrific hud to keep it fresh looking ~ the tights are something I have had forever in my inventory by Sweet Tea ~ ooops the hair is a gift card pressie from hubby by NO.MATCH ~ one of my favorite hair designers ~ just look at the credits and thanks for sticking around everyone ~ love all your comments and especially all the congrats on my wedding ~ means so much to me when I see a comment that someone actually took time to write ~ hugzz everyone and please remember to be kind to yourself and others ♥♥

all about groups…

Groups
Gorgeous gown isn’t it? It is one of Virtual Diva’s Group Gifts...and that is what am going to talk about today groups and group fees ~ remember this is strictly my own opinion though I have asked others how they feel and some defended a store’s right to put whatever amount for their group, others felt that anything above 300L was excessive…am not going to point out any excessive group fee as it has always been said if you do not like the group fee you are not obliged to join ~ just expressing my dismay to see group fee’s raised to triple their amount during Advent and wondering seriously why…several years ago I encountered that dilemma with a group fee and just shrugged my shoulders that yes I should have possibly joined the group earlier yet I was not about to pay 1,000 group fee to receive possibly a few unique gifts that I could wait and make note to buy in the store at a later time…it is the store owner’s right to set whatever amount of group fee they want either to become exclusive or keep out the spammers ♥ I do understand that as others agreed ~ am not sure how some feel paying a fee with absolutely no benefits at all ~ most groups are very generous with the gifts and worth each linden ~ then some groups have no group fee and their gifts are also top notch like Virtual Diva, for example, looking over at my 60 groups for the most part the group fees do flucuate from high to free ~ and for some of the groups there are no fee’s, no gifts just to inform where sales or where events will be held ♥  just a reminder if you do quit a group that has a fee either accidently like I have done on a couple of ocassions hehehe you will have to pay the group fee again no excuses ♥  that can get costly so be very cautious in leaving a group, which is another reason some store owners will put on a hefty group fee to prevent people just joining during the Advent season and leaving and that makes sense to a point for me just not upping the group fee to such an extreme it makes you wonder is it truly worth your lindens to even join…am curious what you all think on the subject of group fees ~ yesterday the topic got a really nice comment that will share in part because it was so well written:

“No, a designer doesn’t owe us staying in Second Life. They don’t owe us in-depth details of their personal life or why they are stepping back – we all have had to step back for a bit to concentrate on real life. No one gets upset at that and we applaud them for the decision to re-prioritize…But they do owe their customers respect – especially those that have been with them for a long time. If it was reality people would rightly feel burned to not know that it was even in the future…”

Thank you for taking the time to send me comments as I do read all of them, and sent back a response♥ For me today will be spent still opening boxes from Advents and sorting them out in folders ~ hugzz to each of you and remember you are special♥♥

groups & stuff…

groups N stuff...
Before I begin, I gotta say this post was going to be something else but after a heated discussion, today among a certain group am taking a different approach ~ so strap on this might be bumpy if not controversial ride hehe…what surprises me most is a simple question can turn into attacking that person, intimidating and twisting the entire subject matter to the point the question gets lost ~ the controversy is what is the responsibility of store owners to their group members especially one that is very well known and has a huge membership ~ do you leave them hanging after say 3 months with no notice either before disappearing or after, or do you feel that a store owner it is actually none of anyone’s business why you are not in contact as RL is RL and its private ~ very heated discussion in regards to this as there were lines drawn, opinions thrown out to the fact you don’t like it just leave…since I am taking a moment to give my own thoughts as to this that most store owners do take responsibility to the group members by sending out notices before leaving on extended leave or having their assistant be informed as to what is taking place so he or she can answer group members satisfactory and not let the rumor mill start by thinking the worst that the owner just quit SL ~ again just my thoughts on this ~ wonder what any of you think on this subject ♥  Just a reminder if you have not been to Linden’s huge Shop & Hop it is ending tomorrow and the gifts are amazing ~ everything Dena is wearing is from there and it is all FREE ~ just check out the credits to see which store ~ thank you all for the nice comments and I did want to thank Moz especially for telling me about his Father’s New Year tradition ~ going out the back door and entering the front door ~ thank you Moz ♥ till next time remember to take time for a moment to yourself ♥ hugzz
