Out with Cusiloo

Man this was a eventful week. I felt bad for Ms Grumples, the cat my Mom gave me last week, so I decided to do a spell to attract a boy cat for her… only my fae magick decided to “help” and I ended up with a cat tail. >< At least it matches my hair tho! Not sure how to get rid of it and am actually finding it kind of fun so will let it be for a while. ♥ Then Mom and I went to one of Dad’s cover band concerts, Pink! It was so much fun to dance and sing along, we had a blast!

10-ice-cream

I bugged my cusiloo, Lulu, to take a break from her homework and come hang out for a bit. We decided to take a bus to a nearby small town by the ocean for the day, but accidently fell asleep. We did end up in a small town by the ocean tho! Just a more rundown empty one than we meant to. But, there was a ice cream truck right as we got in town so we stopped for a treat. It was sooo good, but cusiloo had to hold me up when I almost fell because of my ridiculous heels.

10-rest-in-the-park

After the ice cream and near tumble we went into a little park and rested by a fountain. Someone had left a little panda stuffy behind so we kept it company and listened to the birds and tinkling of the fountain and the waves from the ocean. It was super relaxing and cusiloo almost dozed off again.

10-sunset

Before we left I insisted we take a pic in front of the gorgeous sunset over the ocean. It was such a nice and relaxing day!  For music this week I wanted to share a recent find. I LOVE Little Mix and almost all of their songs! I was browsing youtube and came across this fun cover they did of their song Black Magic in Country style. See you next week, enjoy!

Have I Ever in SL?

wy-with-her-grumpy-kitty

I decided to do Strawberry Singh’s “Have You Ever” meme!  I did delete the last 2 questions since I am answering as my teen avi and they weren’t really appropriate for her since she’s 14.

Skip Week

Hey guys, I am skipping both my blog and store release this weekend. I spent most of the week with the flu and don’t want to do a rushed job. ♥ I am feeling better but want to take my time on my stuff and make it the best I can. See you next Sat!

New Wardrobe and Snacks

08-wy-and-lulu

We redid the house and during this Dad installed an awesome close area so we have this nice big changing room / closet. My cousin Lulu and I helped Mom put all the clothes and accessories away. Man was that tiring. After we collapsed on one of the poufs to rest for a bit.

08-wy-and-momma-fridge-raid

Lulu had to run to a job interview and Mom and I decided to raid the fridge. Turns out Dad locked the freezer somehow so I couldn’t get into the ice cream. >.<

08-wy-and-momma-snacking

So I ate most of his strawberries with whipped cream! ♥ Mom snacked on the cupcakes that were in there.

08-momma-and-wy-making-cookies

After we were full again, Mom wanted to make some cookies. I helped, by taste-testing. Giggles. Dad snuck a few too, but Mom didn’t catch him in the act like she did with me. We were both banished from the kitchen until Mom was done.


08-sweaterpandas

I have another new release! I am trying to do them once a week and since Saturday is my blog day it’s now my project day to finish and release outfits too. This week it’s a cute sweater-skirt outfit with a pair of heels that have small legwarmers on them. I did the outfit in four designs. ♥ Enjoy! My video for this week has a couple members from my favorite acapella band, Pentatonix. It’s a cover of Katy Perry’s Rise.

Best – Worst Meme

07-best-worst-meme

I wanted to do another of Strawberry Singh’s memes. This one is her Best/Worst meme. The instructions say to replace her last one (about french toast toppings) with one of your own.

Best thing about Second Life: It’s a great creative outlet. I can design clothing and choreography dances and so much more that I don’t have the RL skills to do in RL. I also love being able to meet people from all over and see all these amazing places without the need for millions of dollars.

Worst thing about Second Life: How people can act. Some people it gives them the freedom to be terrible and mean. However for some it can give them the freedom to really be themselves. So this one is a double-edged sword in my opinion.

Best thing in your inventory: Fire Extinguisher! From almost day one with my family I realized this would be a must have. Between my dad’s fire effects for his band equipment, firey farts, and random other fire effects I have actually had occasion to use this item more than once.

Worst thing in your inventory: A frying pan weapon. LOL I bought it for a one time use. It took me a year before I decided to voice with my family. When I did it I was a Toddleedoo and made sure to have my dad pick me up. I then put on the frying pan and said “Not the Momma!” Giggles. It was super funny. Dad started looking around and asking “who was that?” But everyone got the reference and now we have a cute story to laugh about. (If you don’t get the reference go to youtube and search “not the momma” it’ll be one of the top videos to pop up.)

Best earliest SL memory: My SL family finding me at the Heritage Adoption Sim. I was just standing there shyly and filling out my application when another little girl started talking to me. A little while later she introduced me to her aunt and uncle who were looking to adopt and we instantly clicked, despite my dad setting my new room (and mom) on fire while showing me his drums.

Worst earliest SL memory: My Dad setting my bedroom and Mom on fire with his drumset. LOL

07-best-worst-meme-closeupBest thing you learned because of SL: That it is okay to be myself! On SL it is a lot easier to be me and not have to filter out quite as much.

Worst thing you learned because of SL: How narrow minded some people can be. As well as how ignorant. I play a kid sometimes and it gets to me when people act like there is something wrong with me because I chose to play a kid instead of an adult. Each kid has their own reasons for wanting to be a kid again, there’s nothing wrong with it. This applies to me in my teen form as well. I just enjoy being younger, it can be a lot less drama and I don’t have to deal with people flirting with me. I’m not in SL for a relationship and this is a great way to stay away from that.

Best thing about blogging: I love sharing stories and my photos to go along with them. It’s fun to think others might see them and hopefully get a smile or start thinking because of them.

Worst thing about blogging: Well, I am bad at keeping schedules. So far I am doing great, but usually after a while it gets harder and harder. But! That’s why I made it a goal this year and am trying really hard to keep it going. It can also be hard at times to see no traffic, but on the other hand I’m not doing this for others, but for myself because I enjoy it and so seeing that even one or two people read it is awesome.

Best thing to do on a rainy day: Stay inside, nice and warm, with a great book or movie. It can also be fun to watch it at times.

Worst thing to do on a rainy day: Having to go out in it and be in all the mud. >< I don’t mind dirt, but really don’t like mud. LOL It’s just so messy!

That’s my list! What are your best and worsts? If you want to participate don’t forget to link it to her post so she can see it and add it to the flickr group she has.


sleepypandasIn other news! I have another new store release. This time it is a pajama set. There are four different top designs, two of which have a color and a black and white version. The shorts are the same for all four sets. Both the shorts and the tops have color huds so you can chose whatever color you like.

Cupcake Pandas

So I’ve already been working on my goals for 2017. Have set aside Sunday mornings as ME time and using part of it for my spiritual stuff. Also working on clothing again to try and earn some Lindens instead of buying it so much. Here is my newest set of outfits, just finished today!

06 Cupcake Pandas.png

Was going for a cute punky feel. It was fun to make the tartan patterns so more will likely be showing up in future outfits. ♥ Wasn’t sure what to do for colors/pattern for the choker, bracelets and boots so I did a color hud. So each part can be colored to whatever color you like. And added bonus, this hud has resize and glow/shine/transparency on it as well.

I need to do some new examples of different photography things, like green screens and portraits and inworlds, so I can get my freelance photography ad done. Then I’ll be accepting some clients for that. I’d also love to do bento poses. I’ve done regular poses using various inworld huds and love doing it. But I’m having trouble locating the bento skeleton download and deciding which software to try.

Another find through random YouTube browsing. Here’s the credits and links to the new releases! See you again next weekend! ♥

New Years Goals

relaxing-music-closeup

Every year we make a bunch of resolutions, most about getting into shape and losing weight. Well this year I decided to make a set of goals instead.

  1. Keep up with my blog. I want to try and post at least one post a week or at least 52 posts for the year. I like writing on here and doing photos and really want to try and get in the habit of consistently posting.
  2. Take and finish an Alison course. My boyfriend recently found this site for me. They have a bunch of free classes, including digital photography course from Harvard. And many when you finish if you pass the text with 80% or better they send you a diploma certificate for it. I love to learn things and expand my skills.
  3. Communicate better. Especially with my SL family, but also with people in RL. I am pretty introverted and will hold things in and let things slide without saying anything. Recently that led to a real tough spot and emotional breakdown. My parents and I talked and decided we all needed to work to be sure to communicate and listen to each other.
  4. Learn and improve my skills with dance tools and shows/videos. I have been working on it for a few months but there is still a lot I want to learn and get better at. I see so many amazing shows and videos, I am not aiming to be like any of them but want to learn the skills so I can show my own uniqueness.
  5. Get more in touch with my spiritual side. Mainly I really need to learn to ground and center myself. I believe it will really help with my emotional state. I have beliefs, yeah, but don’t think of them or practice them much. I want to change that, because it gave me a sense of peace and stability I lack nowadays.
  6. Buy less Lindens. I am creative and like building/making things. I just need to make and sell more on marketplace and maybe inworld. Curb my shopaholic-ism. Will be hard to do, I am used to just buying Lindens when I want stuff and buying a lot. However, RL has demands of its own and those really need to come first, despite how cheap I say it is in comparison. Suppose it is good that I’m not a shopaholic in RL as well. Way cheaper to be one in SL. Think I will start doing some freelance photography again too. I have worked at studios before but they kept me busy all the time and I have family and other hobbies I want to continue to work on while also learning new skills.

relaxing-musicI am sure I could think of many others, but I feel these are the major ones I really want to achieve this year. I also feel like they are achievable and think that’s important for goals, otherwise we end up feeling down and seems like that makes it even harder to work towards achieving them later.

I saw one of my favorite stores had a few new things out and they looked so comfy I used them for my pictures. Been fighting a bug this week so comfy clothing and music was used a lot. The video this week is in a different language, but has English captions and I am in love with it. I have probably listened to it like a million times today. ♥
