My Second Life so far: Blogger Rant

01 Ilona Dawn.png

I haven’t been blogging as much as I wanted to since I came back from my holiday. I did  have a lot of catching up to do especially my chores (my laundry is finally done! Whew!). I’m only able to do quick logins and do quick set-up for my blog scene, which I’m not really that happy about. I haven’t really changed my blogging style and by that I meant my photography skill — I have plateaued. I think I need to do more research about lighting and stuff like that…but I don’t really have the techy skill, why, I do not even know how to Photoshop…well…which can be good in a way though because I show how the product/item really looks like with just using the different Windlight settings in SL but…but…BUT…I want the products to shine! Other bloggers showcase beautiful photos (obviously better than mine) plus I don’t want to bore my followers with same old, same old…but how? What to do? My talents are quite limited and I just wish I can do more to bring justice to the beautiful creations of my sponsor. And oh, another thing…I can do fashion blogging but if I have to blog furniture items, home decor and the like…I get a bit flustered because I dunno, I lack imagination? I mean I  can’t even build in the most simplest of all platforms — you should see my Sims 4 house builds, so square and boring, LoL

But you know what…maybe there’s something I can be good at and it doesn’t even have to be something grand really. Yes, that’s it! I just need to figure it out…surely, there’s something I can do about my blogging dilemma. Oh dear…how many bloggers out there are so hard on their selves and get a lot of frustration especially when taking into consideration the ‘like’ game??? It’s not always about the ‘likes’…sometimes we forget what got us into blogging in the first place…well, in my case, I wanted to blog because it’s my therapy. I like looking at the photos I come up with and I like revisiting the older ones I took…seeing my cute avi makes me happy…and I think that’s more than enough, everything else is secondary or a bonus.

If you’re up to this point reading my blog, sorry for my rant…I just can’t help it…oh well, I will have good blog days and not so good blog days, so be it…such is the blogging life!

There’s no excuse not to blog my work because even it’s a rush job, my avi still looks so cute with my new outfit! I can’t thank enough my sponsor MOoH! and my readers who still continue to support me! THANK YOU!!!

My Second Life so far: Learning not to glitch

MOoH! Riley Boots @Secret Affair

Nice kitty...no scratchy my boots and booty

When I buy something in SL, I just usually check if that the item is for my particular mesh head or body and that’s all I usually look for in the vendor ad. Yep, I’m that one who does not demo, yeah yeah…lazy lazy me…and I did have major regrets for not doing it and I highly recommend that you do take the time to demo! Anyway, going back to my story…when I saw the MOoH! Riley boots, yes, I didn’t read all the info on the ad (typical me) and so when I tried on the item, my Belleza feet wouldn’t fit! I looked at the ad and it says for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza…I was like…what’s going on? Silly me, I didn’t read the bit that I have to take off my feet, ‘doh! I would’ve figured it out if I were an experienced blogger or fashionista in SL, but I’m not really so anyway, that was a very valuable lesson learnt.

Another fab lesson I learnt was on alpha glitching. I thought that the new [POUT!] Jungle Vibes eyeshadow will really go with the look I’m trying to go for but when I applied it on my Vista head, it was glitching. I asked advice from the Vista group and someone suggested that if I use the lashes also by [POUT!] it fixes the issue. Luckily, there were free lashes at their mainstore and when I tried it on, no more alpha issues. I was very happy to have learnt this! Shoutout to the one who gave me the advice! Big THANKS

My Second Life so far: Back to blogging

MOoH! Emmy *Soft*

MOoH! Emmy *Fresh*

MOoH! Emmy *Bold*

I have posted in my other social media/SNS that I am away on holiday…well, I am back to blogging now so yeah, back from my holiday and I have got the blues! I do love coming back home to my sweet guy and my routine but that does not include RL work, hence, the blues.

I knew that there will be a lot in store for me to blog about and I squealed with delight when I saw these cute waist tie dresses by MOoH! There are three colour schemes *Soft*, *Fresh* and *Bold*. I usually show them in all my mesh bodies but I was only able to show in the pics how they look in my Maitreya (Lara) and Slink (HG) bodies. My girls look cute and fab wearing Emmy by MOoH! — get yours at The Avenue.

Virtual and Real Life Blog: Fruitylicious!

MOoH! Floaties Gacha

MOoH! Floaties Gacha
I can’t really take all the pictures for my blog and write the details in one go. I could take the pictures one day and put in the information on another day. I have a place to rez but when it requires for me to rez in a body of water, I need to find somewhere I can do so. I haven’t explored much yet and haven’t done research but for now all I know is this cute pool backdrop at Backdrop City but there are limited pool areas so the one that I wanted was busy with other avies taking pics too. But when I only have that time in my afternoon to log in, I have to think of other means and I have to think fast. So that’s when I discovered that the MOoH! Floaties gacha, especially the huge fruit slices, not only is a great floatie item but can be a backdrop in itself. When you’re a blogger, you have to be creative…indeed, adversity is opportunity in disguise (wink).

I got these cute summery MOoH! Floating Gacha at the Twe12ve event. It is 50L per play and the rare unicorns have four couple poses and the commons have single poses, except for the octies.

My avi style can also be influenced with what I can identify with in my real life. So I too have a watermelon earrings, lemon wedge clutch and a lemon slice sandals. I was just so stoked that I was able to find these in SL too. As much as I would love to have nails and rings like my avi, no way I can get those in RL, lol.
