I am trying to be better about my social media content and participation in RL and SL. As a part of that effort I am trying to get my vlog and blog on again. Thankfully the Blogger Vlogger Network (aka the BVN) gave me a perfect opportunity! They recently announced a Secret Santa post exchange. The idea sounded fun to me and I am always down for some fun in SL so I signed up, even if I was a little self-conscious of my lack of post regularity. BVN randomly matched me with Lauryn Arado. She is a super sweet resident from Bogota, Colombia. Since I really enjoy vlogging I approached her with helping me officially kick off my Silly Chats idea and she graciously agreed!
I really enjoyed getting to know Lauryn a bit and I hope you will too by checking out our chat!
Be sure to give her website and Flickr stream a visit, you will be glad you did!
In my last post I alluded to trying out some new things this coming year in SL and one of those things is having a son! Well, I have a son in RL and he has long been interested in SL and quite the lil gamer himself, so I made him an account so that he and I could experience SL together! There are a few things I have in mind for him, and I won’t share those things just yet as I am not sure how many of them will materialize, but if they do, my son and I are going to be cracking up quite a bit. He really is my lil sidekick and I love him to bits. Made sense to me to share Second Life with him where we could have even more fun!
Since I was all excited about my Bento makeover I was just as excited to make my son a cool looking, age-appropriate avatar! I admit I was kinda scratching my head on this one as there sure are a lot of toddler avatars and toddler fashion, but no where near the same offerings for more teenaged looking avatars. Knowing how much Trouble Dethly of PENUMBRA/Eclipse & Spotlight (such a busy guy!) supports the toddler community in SL, I figured he was the right guy to reach out to (not to mention he is super cool and my bro) and I was right! He connected me with Kenzie Thomas Numbers (mckenzieky) of MESHMERIZED and that is all it took! My son’s avatar is perfect and he has some fun kid appropriate clothing. My son’s skin and shape are from MESHMERIZED as well as his cute lil lip tattoo. In this photo, I wanted him to dress up and not clash with Mommy’s outfit so I took him over to ISON and got him a few things including the Scoopneck Sweater he is wearing. His hair is Boys & Girls 27 from Dura.
Once my son’s avatar was ready and I handed it over to my son to play with, I asked him if he might want to model like mommy and he was like “YEAH!” Next step, launching my son’s teen modeling career!
Thanks for reading! Oh, and in case you are wondering what I am wearing, I pulled out some oldies but goodies from my inventory! I am wearing a Truth Hair called Soliel from 2013 and a Valentina E Floral Bohemian Coat from 2015! I am also wearing Kunglers Lakshmi Necklace and Jeune by Rowne Emeline Leather Jumpsuit. The pose is by KaTink and called “Besties for Life” (so true) and the photo was shot on the KaTink sim.
I am often invited to judge Mr. & Miss Virtual World challenges…and that is not a brag or anything, just something I enjoy doing. As a model who had put herself out there to be judged by others on many occasions, I feel my experiences make me qualified to fairly judge others who are putting themselves out there in competitions. I am always flattered to be asked and always look forward to going. I take care in making sure I am presentable. As a former Miss, I firmly believe I have a standard to uphold. So when looking for something of quality to wear, it is no surprise that I default to Wicca’s Wardrobe. As any who know me or read my blog at all, Wicca is a longtime friend of mine and while we have not made an official SL relationship out of it, I consider her a sister. She and her man Red made my country costume when I was competing in 2015 and I LOVED it. So Wicca and MVW still go hand in hand for me. Besides, while Wicca has no “Face of Wicca’s Wardrobe” or anything, I know I am the Wicca’s Wardrobe Runway Princess! One of the other things I enjoy about judging MVW events is seeing friends that I don’t always see…like Pam Astonia! Pammy cracks me up and is just so talented and lovely…chatting with her is always a perk of judging!
The photo above was my look for the 2nd and final auditions of this round of Miss Virtual World 2017 and here are the details:
RL is allowing me to get my blog on! So here I am with one of my full figured role play avatars, wearing a recent release from Wicca’s Wardrobe. I LOVE that Wicca is able to design for all Belleza sizes as I personally prefer Freya…the curvier the better I say! So here are all the head to toe details:
Being a fashion blogger at heart I have to share with you that I am wearing some of the latest from Legal Insanity: the Jaelle top (birds) and Baylie capris (old jeans jewels). Both items come in a wide array of options. I love the look!
Thank you for reading and watching my machinima!

Thanks to Legal Insanity, male Silly (aka Silvester) got to come out and strut his stuff in this sexy tank called Sid. It comes in a few variations: solid or with a print (the one I have on is ‘music’), and with or without spikes. Variety certainly is the spice of life!
This handsome tank is an exclusive to the Boys of Summer event going on NOW and through June 30th, so you all had best hurry over there before you miss it!

The current round of the FAD Event is in its final days and will close as of June 25th in preparation for the next round. This round’s theme is “Bird of Prey” and I just loved that color scheme. In my last post for this round I made a departure from the literal ‘bird’ part of the theme and enjoyed the color palette instead and came out summer bohemian.
My look is composed of mainly with items from AsHmOoT available at this round of the FAD Event.
floral wreath >Rose Crown
top > Bad Girl Fringe Top
shorts > Vanessa Hot Pants
purse > Hand Sack
shoes > High Sandals
Do be sure to get over to the FAD Event before this round closes, there are many great items to be had.
