8 years on!

Snapshot_054

8 years ago yesterday I set up an account, it was used occasionally at that point, I was hanging in another world and had a very succesful business. Second life became an escape from my virtual escape. Things happen and I felt more at home in second life than I did anywhere. Much has changed in sl in 8 years.

Please do not expect credits on the picture below but this was taken in my very early days in sl.

lhhunts

I think the great thing about second life now is the ability to be who you want to be is even more so. With mesh and bento we have so much more choice. I am so happy to have been able to see this place develop and make some life long friends.

We never know what this future holds so I can not say here is to 8 more but I can say here is to the future and may SL continue to develop and prosper and sure we are going to hate some changes intitially but we will learn to love it!

The 80’s rocked it is official!!

  1. We had no mobile phones, texts was delivered face to face or by written note.
  2. Shell suits was so very popular yes I had one neon green and black, why did they not survive, probably due to their highly flammable nature.
  3. Music cassetes and the amazing gaming devices aka Atari(Playing ping for hours)
  4. The internet was not really here, but here in the UK we had an information highway built into our TV’s called Ceefax.
  5. The Patrick Swayze era, good old roadhouse and Dirty Dancing. Swoooon.
  6. Team Cyndi or Team Madonna- back then probably more team Madonna, down to the crazy dressing up.
  7. Alf the greatest extraterrestial ever alive, even if he wasn’t a fan of cats.
  8. BK Knights and LA Gear was the most awesome trainer brand!

And so much more! We played out till it was dark, never really worrying about anything.

Communication and having fun was much less complicated back then.

The neons was high fashion, fun was a must and roller discos was the place to be!

Thanks Rewind for helping me very much relive and relove this era!

I simply had to share some news with you, Sales are great in second life and I have some pretty sales to share with you in this post.

25L-retirement-sale

Firstly Kay of Image Essentials is having a huge retirement sale, so many poses at a reduced price of 25 lindens. You really do not want to miss this. Blogger, photographer or even just a family and friend photo taker this is a sale not to miss. It starts tomorrow and runs till the 2nd April.

In The Shadows

Mooh has regular discount sales for group members, this dress is quite time sensitive as today is the last day you can get this dress for just 85 lindens. It fits like a glove and the detailing is fantastic.

[elikatira] is another brand having a sale, she makes fab hair and like Kay she needs to make room, so her store is on sale with at least 75% off. I went and bought Naara and she cost me 72lindens so it is definitely worth checking out!

A Day on the Boat

Standard

A day on the water

 

There is something about the peace of open water, something restful and fascinating.

I have fallen in love with this new traditional looking boat from Chez Moi available at Tres Chic.

Who couldn’t its sweet looks are paired with a Boat load (sorry couldn’t resist) amount of animations both single and couples. 114 in the PG and 178 in the Adult boat.

A day on the water

Lumae has been busy again, I honestly have never known a skin designer work like this lady does, changes in head and bodies mean that alterations are occasionally needed to make skins blend and fit as they should. Lumiya from Lumae takes a real pride in making sure things fit as they should, and I love her freckles for me they are so natural looking.

Her latest release at Genre is Showgirl, to fit the Burlesque theme, Lumiya has made Eirtae in four skin tones with the special make up called Showgirl. This really is a chance to grab up a steal remember Genre is all under 100 lindens so you can grab up this skin for that price including just about every applier out there!

April Showers

April Showers

When you appreciate the rain and snow both of which are around well into Spring this year, life can be simply breathtaking.

Dance in the rain, I dare you!

This round of Uber is super hot with so much heat you will dry out quick!

Mahoom has hit the country Spring theme head on with the Reham dress. 100 % original mesh and exclusive for Uber it comes fitted for Maitreya/ Slink and default avatars standard sizes. It is available in 12  Spring colors, 8 patterns  and 4 Solid color options as well as Fatpack options.

The Rhone boots from Reign at Uber for me was a must have as they are so practical and can be worn with absolutely anything, variety of colours available, gold and silver options for metals and the normal awesome range of feet compatibility mean this cute pair of boots should be in everyones shoe box.

Izzie has released this wonderful set of rings as well with 3 different colour options and available for differing hands.

April Showers

Dark Passion’s Koffin Nails has a new release for 20TwentySL, Night Shades is a a zig zag nail art with brighter colours available as always they are Slink, Maitreya and Omega compatible.
