Beautiful Newness from The Secret Store! The Mini Mesh Skirts, available in plain and printed versions. I considered doing a post showing each skirt because the colors are gorgeous, and there are some amazing printed ones. Very unique! There is a free demo available at the in-world and marketplace stores.

If you’re as big of a Maylee Oh fan as I am, you may want to bookmark a couple of sites. The Secret Store blog, and The Secret Store on marketplace sl. Nothing like shopping from the pose stand in your bedroom. 🙂


If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been venturing out of my safe, little photo orb more lately. Lately as in, since I’m able to view shadows. Lol, I just imagined a follower reading this and shaking their head saying, “she’s not going to talk about them damn shadows again, is she??” No, I am not..well I guess I kind of just did, but I was leading up to something else. Location.
We all know that there are literally thousands of awesome places in sl to take pics, some well known, and some waiting to be discovered. I’m betting that most of us also know that exploring the grid, looking for different photo locales is an experience within itself. Anything is possible in this world! If you have the time, that is.
That’s something else that I’ve bitched about mentioned quite often. How I wish I had more time. So lately I’ve been collecting LM’s and doing some googling on places to take photographs in second life, or.. beautiful, unique places in second life..whatever key words i can think of at the time.

The showcase section, located in the destination guide (found in the search section of your viewer, or here) has a lot of neat places to take pictures. I’ve also got a special landmark folder that I call “cool places”…yes, I know, such a snazzy, original name. When I’m out shopping, or on a hunt, or whatever, and I see a place that I like, I landmark it and drag it into said folder.

I wanted to share a very helpful post I found in Through Salamander’s eyes,  by Moniq Salamander. I am keeping this page bookmarked for sure. There are all sorts of different tips and lists. There is a list of links called Locations and there are some really good ones, and some great sources to find more!

still chasing shadows

Have I ever mentioned how much I wish I had the time to blog more? I think I’ve mentioned it a time or two…hundred. Now I have a new obstacle..to take the pretty shadowy location pics, I have to be plugged directly into my modem..I just can’t seem to get a strong enough connection via my router. I can still do the white background without a problem. I’d say out of about twenty or so pics taken outside of the beautiful Milk Motion main store, only 2 turned out somewhat decent..meaning with no weird lines or flaws.(see photo below)

That wouldn’t be a huge problem for a lot of people, but in my house there are these 2 really short people who love to play on the computers and they go cuckoo when they can’t get on youtube or disney.com. I find it best to just keep the peace.

The scarf in this picture is one of the many amazing group gifts at [whatever]. There is a 300 L$ fee to join, but it’s more than worth all of the group gifts you receive. I tp’d over late last night and all of the gifts are still available. You can view a few in this recent post, but there are more not even pictured.

…bring out the gimp

Wow, time flies. I can’t believe it’s already been 30 days since starting my photoshop CS6 trial. When I opened it to edit this post it told me it would be the last use unless i wanted to purchase it for a gazillion dollars. So i minimized it and I plan on never turning off or restarting my computer again, lol. I’m sure that plan won’t work so I did download GIMP for this computer. I have an older version of ps on my old mac so if I can’t get used to GIMP I’m going to be computer hopping again. GIMP. What a name for a program. Isn’t that slang for a  person with missing limbs or something like that? (please if you have missing limbs don’t think I’m making fun or anything). And if my memory serves me correctly, wasn’t that what they called the leather-masked somdomizer in Pulp Fiction? I just think it’s an odd name and I’m mourning the loss of my trial so this is all crazy talk anyway. :p


At least I still can play with shadows in sl, knock on wood.

Poppy Returns from Outer Space

or as we sometimes call it, real life.

Pictured above: Maylee Oh’s new Babydoll Dresses from The Secret Store. Available in 7 different prints/textures for any mood or look.

I couldn’t believe when I looked at my blog a week or so ago and realized that I’ve been away nearly 1 year! My how time flies..and I’ve missed blogging but it seemed every time I logged into sl my graphics were going from bad to worse. I tried to take some pics and it wouldn’t even let me go to the ultra setting..i was heartbroken.

I tried to upgrade my Mac. It was a 10.5.8 and to be able to upgrade, i needed to first upgrade to a disc that apple no longer sells. I found some independent sellers on amazon with 50/50 reviews..a few of the bad reviews stating that they had lost total use of their computer when trying the 59 dollar upgrade and of course, this made me very apprehensive.

Like I have my entire life when I have a problem I called my Dad and asked if he could help me investigate and find a way to do it. The next day my amazing Dad brings me over a new iMac. I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it. He said it was my birthday gift and he knows because of my special situation at home that my computing time is my biggest “outlet”…

So now…finally…I have shadows! I was so excited I cried, lol. I know that’s so corny but…whateva.

I was going through my inventory and I have nearly a years worth of things that generous designers have sent me to blog for them..plus since it’s turned into a mesh world while I’ve been away you can imagine the shopping that needs to be done! But I’m really going to make an effort not to let my blog make me feel overwhelmed and deadliney…I want it to be enjoyable for me and for you! Nevertheless, I do have some catching up to do..going to model some of the review copies and new things and freebies while I play with the lighting and see what I can do..be patient with me..while I’ve been gone I’ve renewbed…it really happens!

One more thing I’d like to add..well there are many things I’d like to add but I’m trying not to make this any lengthier than it already is..If you’ve contacted me and  I haven’t responded please forgive me..i literally fell off the face of sl for a while so I’m sure many messages and other things were overlooked and/or lost. I’ll be checking daily now so if you’d like to get in touch with me please drop me a notecard in world or leave me a message here.

I’m in a pickle with my flickr..I can’t remember my screen name, password, the email acct. I used to open it..on my old computer it just stayed logged on all the time..not now of course so I cannot get into my flickr 😦 Not sure if I should make a new one or keep on with the pain in the ass process of trying to make some sort of “breakthrough” with it.

Okay, I’ll leave you on that note lol…Thank you for all of your support and encouraging messages while I was away..it really means a lot. ♥
