We All Have To Start Somewhere……Blast From the Past

Ola! Today, the End of the World,……is my Bloggaversary…. Another Damn SL Blog is 2 years old

Yes, two years ago when I started my little fashion blog, I wasn’t thinking about celebrating my bloggaversary on December 21, 2012 😉 I had often been told that I had a knack for putting together a kewt outfit when my journey began……………….. as you can see for yourself I didn’t know about Windlight, Antialiazing, Shadows, Lighting, Depth of Field, Line Removal, High Quality Resolution, Liquefy, Curves, Filtering, Control 10 (Thank you Berry), Corel, PhotoShop, Photo Elements………………….and as well as how big my damn eyes were! But two years later I know a few things more than I used to, I enjoy blogging immensely, so I keep going and learn something new every once in awhile and that makes me happy.

I am also killing two birds with one stone as I am doing the Current Blogger Challenge Blast From the Past, I have often thought of redoing my very first post as I was very enamored with this fantastic new dress at the time, the Evion hehe, Sissy made this dress and didn’t know me until I im’d her over my absolute joy that my name was used on a creation in SL hehe, I have a weird name ok I had yet to see anything with Evion on it……it was neat…..she sent me the Evion Dress in Dark Cherry, I put on my best Curio skin and took a fabulous photo 😉

I started my blog that day, trust me I know it is a bad photo and I lmao every time I see it, meh what ya going to do? Seriously though…….everyone has to start somewhere and if I can learn a whole whack-load of trick-of-the-trade so can you, never get discouraged when blogging, sometimes your blog takes off immediately and sometimes you slowly crawl up the ranks with longevity (someone told me that once) knowing it’s an amazing amount of hard work. But when someone reaches out and asks a question, whether it be to find a certain item I have blogged, or to tell me they really liked my post that day………it’s all worth it …..I really just enjoy blogging, I take the good with the bad, sometimes you get a few scrapes but you still have way more fun in the end.

I want to thank Sissy so much for sticking with me, even when my photos (or great big huge eyes) were not quite up to par, and I would like to extend that to all the wonderful designers that have stuck with me along my journey. I also want to thank all the new friends I have made in the blogging community and for the great advice as well as the wonderful kind words……….and you my dear readers! I give you all great big hugs for you are what keeps me coming back each day, Thank you 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my Blast From the Past/Bloggaversary Post, join the Blast from the Past Flickr Group and share your own! Have a great day, stay safe and I shall…………………………..

See you soonish 🙂

Baby Don’t Go

Ola! Together for Sway is still open and going strong, I was able to get back there today and pick up a few more goodies. But first you can see this fabulous Animated Streetlight from Dutchie, although this is the PG version it is still a hot hot hot item to be had! The animations in this fantastic Streetlight will blow you away! You and your mate can meet then snuggle up, flirt…..kiss hehe even argue! This is one item not to be missed, I am also wearing an amazing mesh Trench Berry Coat from Even.Flow, I will wear it again so you can see it in full light……but was a perfect find to wear in these photos.

Together for Sway is an event to help Sway through a difficult time, with hopes she does not have to worry financially at the same time, as well we can give back a little of the joy she has given us for so many years, with her beautiful sim and magnificent creations she has made and shared with us. So shop like crazy and wish her well! We, the second life fashion community know how to shop, so make sure you stop by soon!

As I agonized over how I was to go about taking a photo in a city setting, with also being able to place the Streetlight……..I remembered seeing a Second Life Flickr Stock Image Group, it was there I found this incredible photo taken by Cajsa Lilliehook from It’s Only Fashion Blog of a dark alley and I knew it was the perfect setting for this fabulous Streetlight….so I uploaded it and applied it to my VR Photo Studio Backdrop and voila! This is the first time I have used this outlet….but it may not be my last hehe

I have some more posts coming up soon, so stay tuned and I will……………………………………………

See you soonish 🙂
