UPDATE (August 3, 2012)
I’m sitting here reading my previous updates on this first post. I guess it makes me feel a bit nostalgic. :) Blogging has without a doubt been one of the best experience from my sl…there may be one other but I think I’ll keep that in my pretty lil prim pocket ;) Oh, I’m sorry…mesh. Mesh, mesh, mesh mesh mesh..Second Life is a mesh world now. I definitely wouldn’t have lasted very much longer on my previous computer. Thank you Dad!!
One thing I’ve been meaning to mention in my posts, and perhaps I’ll mention it again in an upcoming post..I know I need to work on my blogroll and links, many of them have changed or expired. I’d like to get back on the feeds but I’ll wait until I’ve been back for at least a month before I start bugging them, lol..well..maybe 3 weeks :p Anyway, back to what I’ve been wanting to say is that I’m in the progress of updating everything. Please, if I have an incorrect link for your store or blog, message me on here or in world with the current link so I can correct it asap.
Also, if you’d like to exchange blogroll links, please message me! I need to go through my blogroll big time and I know there are so many amazing ones out there that I’d love to have on my blogroll, and whose blogroll I’d also love to be on! (wow lets see how many times i can say “blogroll”)
I’m always up for tips too..if you see something I’m doing and you’re feeling generous..it would be amazing if you messaged me and said “hey poppy, i noticed yada yada yada yada…have you ever tried the bla bla bla feature in photoshop?” I would love any tips or advice that you can give! Please be nice, lol.
Today I got to spend a little bit of time with one of my oldest and dearest friends from sl, ope…most know her as demi but she’ll always be my ope. If you know demi you probably know what a talented artist she is. Today she gave me this fashion illustration that she made of us some time ago…I love it so much I want to hang it on my wall irl..for sentimental reasons of course but also because it looks really cool!
UPDATE (February 5, 2011)
This blog has been quite an experience, let me tell ya! Sitting here this morning looking through it..I can’t believe it’s already almost a year..time has gone so fast. It seems like the older you get the faster time goes, doesn’t it?
I’m very happy that I started an SL fashion blog. I love it..and I feel like it’s good to have something that you love to do to work on..a project to keep your brain busy. I think also you have to find that perfect balance of time spent on doing it…it’s easy for it to become an obsession..for me anyway…I have to make myself go to bed many nights or I could stay up all night dressing Poppy and taking pictures lol.
The friends that I’ve met through blogging this past year are some of the most awesome people I’ve ever met in my life, and I adore them. We all definitely “get” each other…I don’t talk to people in my rl about sl..or as little as possible anyway. It’s good to have friends to talk to about blogging and sl and things that a lot of people just don’t understand. I’ve found in the blogging community the people are truly happy for you when something good happens for you…the people I’ve met anyway…and I feel the same way. Ope told me some news a couple days ago and I’m as excited for her as if it were happening to me…if that makes sense lol. Lots of support in the blog community… :)
Anyway, I’m rambling…just wanted to update my “about me” section…I was reading it and it sounded so generic. Feel free to contact me inworld, via flickr, whateva…and also I’d love to trade blog links…just ask!

a thirty-something southern gal, I’ve been playing sl for a little over a year now, and have been addicted from the start. My shopping habit has resulted in a 50,000+ item inventory, so hopefully I can put some of it to good use with this blog! My posts may not be daily..at this point I’m still learining and this is going to be an enjoying hobby I hope..no stresses or deadlines..just posting pics of things I like and want to share with you :)
