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♥♥

Yes or no…

Yes or No
Do you see her behind us and do you believe she is really there?  On average most people are in the belief that ghosts do exist…In fact, ghosts are among the most widely believed of paranormal phenomenon ~ this goes back as far as anyone can remember ~ and most of us know the story of author Charles Dickens created a very famous story about ghosts ~ even Shakesphere created ghosts in “Macbeth” ~ now in today’s world there are a lot of different views in the scientific world especially in the definition of what is a ghost…am not sure as both Dena and myself are still on the fence of this sooooo what do you believe…before we go are you wondering where we got the cute shirts and pants and did we spend tons of Lindens ~ answer to that is would you believe the outfit am wearing that includes shirt, jeans and shoes and is mesh for only 10L ~ OMG yes 10L ~ check the credits as that leads into our next blog post so stick around we will be back soon ♥♥

Enjoying a moment…

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 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 ♥

Bestie and Bride…

When planning our wedding we truly wanted to keep it very simple, which we had made the decision no best man or maid of honor ~ still I wanted a pic of my bestie and me together as she has been there for me…plus I just had to show off our gowns again as how many times will I ever wear this wedding dress again ~ as we all know if you do go to weddings only the bride wears white SL or RL the protocol is you never want to outshine the bride…the dress Dena is wearing a Christmas gift from Scandalize as well as her necklace that did come as a gift from Lindens Shop & Hop event…

Here is a portrait in beauty as Dena shows off her bouquet and dress by herself ~ even though we had no bridal party she was my honorary maid of honor and just love the bouquet that matched mine…I love the rich color of her dress it was such a compliment to the wedding color we chose Christmas Red as we all know the protocol of never wearing white to someone’s wedding as you never want to outshine the bride on her special day…BTW I will admit that I am a tad behind on my blogging since this should have been posted right after the wedding and I got it mixed up with my Sax girl post so please have patience while I do catch up ~ RL has kept me busy for a chance I am having a social life LOL ~ take care & will be back very soon ~ hugzz ♥♥

Sax Girl…

Wish I could play the sax like Kenny G or John Coltrane except I cannot play any type of instrument at all ~ my grandma taught me to read notes and play piano and the only song that I could semi play by reading music is “Can’t Help Falling in Love” sung by Elvis ~ that was my fave song growing up as was Elvis and I would practice over and over and over till my father would yell “choose another song” LOL today am lucky if I could play chopsticks hehehe ~ forget singing as I could not sing on tune at all…guess that just was not my niche…if you are wondering where I got this pose all this month the pose fair has come …If you join the Pose Group there are a lot of pose gifts this one is included from Artis ~ hubby is like me and loves finding new poses for us to try out, take pics and just have fun with them ♥  will find out what he thinks of this one as he didn’t see me unbox all the gifts last night ~  bloggers and photographers you really need to check out The Pose Fair ~ lot of great single poses, couples, and props along with all those free gifts too♥ Here is YOUR RIDE ~ till next time am wishing you a healthy start to the new year ~ hugzz

all about 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♥♥
