Thank you…

When you open a gift from a designer or an item from a subscription box that you really like have you sent a thank you to the creator?  Honestly and am not being harsh but 90% of the answers are probably no because either you forget, don’t have time or some other reason why ~ but speaking with designers and creators they get very few thank you’s and that is sad ~ yes I know you paid for the item that should be thank you enough right…but what am talking about is possibly when a designer goes above and beyond like for example I get various subscription boxes *yes am addicted to them* and one from a  store decided to send out an extra gift ~ not that they had to am guessing because maybe they felt their first item just was not enough ~ in the group several members grumbled and made comments like it didn’t fit the theme exactly but hey who is to say it didn’t ~ point being is this was an act of kindness from the creator as they did not have to do this at all ~ and I sent a thank you, which sounded like they were so happy to get that ~ Guess this just is a short rant saying take time to send out thank yous for gifts and creators that do little things like that ~ what does it take ummm maybe 60 seconds out of your life to write a notecard…

Gifts ~ Gifts & Gifts…

Who does not like gifts whether it is in RL or SL especially SL and this month they are plentiful ~ sadly if you missed Chapter Four with their 4th anniversary gifts oh my they were a lot am still opening them ~ then I just TP’d over to Tres Chic and they are celebrating their 2 year old anniversary with a LOT and I do mean a LOT of gifts, which makes me so happy that we have the ability of making folders in our closets ~ come to realize folders are your friends and life savers at times ~ along with the search feature you can really become organized ~ under my object tab I have made up Folders for “Events, Subscription Boxes, Sponsors, just to name a few then under that I have a folder like example all my subscriptions as Pandora, Luxe, Powder Pack, Deco_rate, each have their own folder ~ then *giggling* with those I have folders for each month ~ for me this works might not for everyone but I have noticed that I can let each of you know where a specific makeup came from cuz maybe you got that box and liked the look ~ anyway Tres Chic celebration will be till June 5th ~ I will tell you a little hint for getting the gifts to save time on your footsies ~ use area search ~ word *gift* and search it pulled up every gift for me then I click on starting at bottom and hit “touch” and the gift comes to me…ta-da ~ takes a lot less time and I also go to my trusty Seraphim and see what they show in their gallery for Tres Chic as I make up a list of things I want to try and buy like the hair from Vanity “Sunday Mess” I love and purchased it ~ course suggest you try on the demo as sometimes I love the pics but on me not so much ~ expensive lesson with hair that I learned…NOW onto the gifts

Gift1a
Hair by =DeLa*= & Necklace by E-Clipse

This gift comes with a fatback of huds ~ and instead of going with my usual blonde I wanted to try something fun and wild ~ you will have fun with this and major thank you to DeLa for that awesome gift and yes MEN there is hair for you as well included ~ don’t feel left out…That necklace is really chic and very trendy plus comes with a nice hud to change the metal and the center stone ~ Gift is from E-Clipse called CatchMe!  Necklace and looks like either male or female can wear this ~ Next up shoes…

Gift1c
Sanny Leather Chucks by fame feeme

These shoes are pure leather that fame feeme gave as their birthday gift ~ great detailing with the zipper and overall they will be in my shoe folder to keep ~ variety of sizes that should feet those tootsies…Now see what I paired it with *grinz*

Gift1b
Justine *cropped top in olive* by [LGL]  ~ *Rachel* tie by [HU]
Starting with the *Rachel* tie from [HU] *Haveunequal* that also comes in various sizes and the Maitreya fit me perfect…like the butterflies that decorate the bottom ~ then the cropped top *Justine* by [LGL] *La Gazza Ladra in Olive ~ I will admit am not a big fan of the color but it works with the lace to offset and overall I liked the look ~ so now to show you the entire outfit that I put together…

Gift1aa
Outfit by Tres Chic birthday gifts

Let me point out 2 things though the hair is the one item I did purchase from Vanity ~ am turning into a Hair Whore LOL since so much of my budget goes into hair these days…gawd could you imagine if in RL you could change your hairstyle and color that simple ummm don’t even wanna think about what my closet would look like LOL…The 2nd item are the denim shorts came from Gizza a gift from Chapter Four ~ my suggestion is just first join Tres Chic group since it is FREE and take my infamous TAXI and grab all those birthday gifts before they disappear into the wind ~ lastly you should stick around while I open more gifts to show you AND show you what couple of my sponsors gave me…thanks so much for following me, sending me compliments and just overall supporting my blog ~ this means more than you know and I am very appreciated that I have now over 100 followers ~ OH yes and I really have to thank my hubby Sten as he truly is my inspiration at times to keep going ~ he is the best ~ LOVE YA all…Peace out ♥

LaGazza at Tres Chic….

Sweater & Pants by LaGazza

Its just the right thing for those chilly evenings and we sure are getting some this side of the pond..(Im UK)..but as you can see it has a real soft look to it and with the slight contrast to the neckline it just adds a little something to the overall effect don’t you think?…With 17 colors to choose from including Hazel,Lavender,Blue violet along with Seaweed that I’m wearing you will be sure to find one that you love…100% mesh and for Fitmesh, Maitreya and regular sizing…Love the three quarter sleeves on this sweater too.
This is one of them items that is a staple piece to add to your inventory,to mix and match with..On to the pants… These are called Yeah! and again for the Event and come in 8 colors such as Navy,Burgundy,and Espresso that I’m wearing. 100% mesh and from the smallest of you to those who prefer a more rounded figure you wont be disappointed with the fit…..With the two front zips you won’t find these give you any trouble undoing them for a quick exit if you know what I mean ..’Giggles’…These items are sold separately and come at a very reasonable price..Dont forget that there are fat packs available for you too and also demo’s of both items….Will be back with to show you what I have found from deep in my closet ~ Starr thinks it has a great edgy look to it, which that is what I hope you will agree with her as well…till next time ♥

gifts1a
More gifts from the Event

Starting from the left the Barrels are a gift from Fran Gustov ~ good prop items …next to me is “Book Lovers Commode” ~ did some research on that word and came up with a definition 1.a piece of furniture containing a concealed chamber pot. 2.a chest of drawers or chiffonier of a decorative type popular in the 18th century ~ Which was a gift from Chic Aeon so thank you there are two versions this one and a dark wood ~ and last ly the stacked hat boxes are a gift from Alrunia Ahn ~ all great props that can be used in blogs, stores or in your private residents and all are FREE and birthday gifts to celebrate Second Life’s 13th birthday…

Take time to visit and wander around the area not just for the gifts, which are nice but there is other things to do and see and listen to ~ there is a huge auditorium, a bigger music area for DJ’s and live music ~ there are hands on exhibits and the creators of some just blow my mind…oh yes a big hunt as well for you to try your hand at …

Not sure where to start well start at the Welcome Center ~ you will get a nice folder of LM’s to help you ~ the greeters are just at the top of their game….here is the Limo to that area…good luck, have fun and will be back ~ For my readers my wish is to let you know how grateful I am that you follow me and possibly get a smile, a chuckle out of some of the things ~ find it informative at times and overall that you like what you read…hugzz

Happy Birthday Second Life!!!!

SL13B_1024x1024_RS003_purple

Can you believe that SL has been around for 13 years ~ how amazing as I only knew of its existence 9 years ago when a good friend kept telling me about this new virtual platform that was even better than SIMS…I dug my heels in about this knowing I would become addicted like I had to SIMS and quit cuz it was taking over my life ~ for almost a year I just kept saying no no no even after the pics she shared with me, the stories she told of what it was like did I FINALLY say ok I will try it and the rest was history for me ~ now I really wonder how back in the beginning of SL 13 years ago how limited everything was ~ have spoke with many and it is remarkable they are still here ~ rare but still what can I say that am still here almost 8 years now and I do not have any regrets ~ but this year seems EPIC in so many ways ~ “slices of cake” from all over and not just at the gift areas but from events the vendors are setting out slices for anyone to pick up and enjoy…and the goodies are IMMENSE with being very high quality and have opened only one or two so far but that will be another post ~ yet this started June 19 and goes to June 26 so there is not time to procrastinate about travelling to the event…first let me introduce the builder who created the Welcome Area

Catboy Qunhua 

Creator the the Welcome Ship where you first land ~ click HERE but let me back up just a little and show off the magnificent ship

SLB13 greeter_002
Welcome Center 

Really grand looking isn’t it ~ going to copy/paste my interview so I won’t miss a word…was so nice for him to give me a few minutes of his time to speak ~ so I do thank him ~

 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): hi can I speak with you
 Catboy Qunhua: Sure
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): first congrats on a great build for this years celebration
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): love the build can you tell me a little about it
Catboy Qunhua: It started when the event organizers announced they were open to design submissions and I made a drawing
 Catboy Qunhua: see image below 
Catboy Qunhua: When they asked me to elaborate on the drawing I made a small model, which you can see over by the fountain
Catboy Qunhua: After the model was accepted I started work on a full sim layout, which I have never done before
 ღ™ (starr.ghost): was there a specific theme behind the boat
 Catboy Qunhua: I remember what they said “Shared adventure” which led my to think about ships. In order to sail a tall ship, you need a whole crew of people
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): i like that
 Catboy Qunhua: And with adventure as the theme, a flying ship sounded like one heck of an adventure
ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): yes remembers me back to Peter Pan and Capt Hook
Catboy Qunhua: Bingo, exactly, Hook and Disney’s Peter Pan are some of my favourite movies
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): mine too especially some of the updated ones
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): Well again kudo’s for this I really think you nailed it and now I see why you were chosen
 ღStarr ღ™ (starr.ghost): thank you for giving me a few minutes of your time
 Catboy Qunhua: no problem 🙂 Enjoy the exhibition!

I can see how he won this as the build is so impressive that please be sure to take the LM to the Welcome Center walk around ~ now he did the build but it was decorated by Treacle Darlandes so kudo’s to him for the awesome props and decor…

Now when I did land I spoke with 2 of the greeters that were on hand ~ Nafika and Snazzy Zepp who informed me both have been working at these birthday celebrations for 4 years and absolutely love being a greeter…they were kind, friendly and very knowledgeable about the entire event and if a question that they were not sure of they went directly to the source to provide the information ~ let me show you the two fabulous greeters

SLB13ab
Nafika & Snazzy Zepp

I thank them both as I did take up probably a lot of time asking way to many questions but they didn’t make me feel rushed as we had a very nice chat ~ if you do see them when you land please be kind and say hello as this is a volunteer position ~ hugzz to you both and thank you again Nakifa & Snazzy you both made my day by your kindness…
