How to Train Your Raptor

Second Life is 12 years old! Can you believe it? While the celebratory events are over, the sims are open until July 4. There are some beautiful exhibits and the stages are always particularly fun to explore. What secret crooks and crannies will you find?

Designer Showcase July 2015

I found a raptor. Much like Jurassic World, this raptor appears to have socialization skills and subsequently is trainable lol. I really did enjoy movie. It’s good campy fun, but the Party Raptor was a limited edition gift! I found it at the celebration while roaming around last week, but you can always try Marketplace!

How to Train your Raptor

Now, while all good things must come to an end, others will take their place. Designer Showcase‘s, a monthly fashion event, July Round is open. Spend your Friday shopping and exploring!

Name of the Game

Dani Plassitz created a beautiful and colorful Balinese traditional dress for Miss SL 2015 Indonesia  Mio Linette.  Do you like? It’s available at Styles by Danielle Fashion House. Also, a Miss SL Boutique will open soon, as a charity for the Join Hands for Nepal; Fashion for Food, and it will be available there too.

Go Big or Go Home

Name of the Game

Good luck to all Miss SL candidates! Is it bad form to send Mio Linette extra positive vibes? Unless it’s already happened. I haven’t spent much time in world, but I feel special in her dress. Speaking of special, my real life wedding day is in 2 days. Yikes. I thought I was totally prepared, but how does one RL work and SL blog whilst planning a small wedding? I can’t imagine planning a super big ceremony. Hope this wedding is my last. ;)

Summer is my favorite season for the colors alone, and Designer Showcase’s June round is filled with summertime love.

Keep Calm and Plan On

If you’ve ever read my blog, you’ll know I use it as an online journal for my real life. I have a work function coming up and I’m a tad nervous. You see, my fiance was jealous of my former male friend/co-worker. I understand why. My former friend and I had a Jennifer Lawerence and Josh Hutcherson type of chemistry. I call him a former friend because I had to make a choice between my friendship and my relationship. I chose my relationship because I can’t imagine life without him.

Nevertheless,  I fear my fiance will exude a proprietorship vibe for my plus one work function.

Keep Calm and Plan On

That makes me slightly uncomfortable as we are getting married. We’ve been planning our small ceremony, so I hope that stays on his mind. My mind too. Oh, that vent felt good!
