It’s totally not a wordy day for me but as I mentioned before sometimes I’m listening to a song or one just pops into my head when I’m putting a blog together and today it’s this one…Totally Addicted to Bass by Puretone. I can totally imagine that Kess is lying there, chilling out and listening to that song right now probably because I am listening to it right now as I write. In my opinion the main reason that Second Life cannot be, and shouldn’t be, categorized as a game is how closely we associate ourselves with our avatars…far more so than any game I’ve every played. The majority of us prefer to be in human form in SL and we express ourselves through how we style that avatar.
About the Stuff:
I splurged on the new head from LAQ, Trinity. I was ummming and arrring about whether to get it when I got the news that The Skinnery were doing an applier for it at this round of Cosmopolitan (open til 30th). The applier works for both Logo and LAQ heads. I like the head but the functionality is very limited in comparison to the other heads on the market. The Skinnery has long been a favourite of mine and I think it’s because there is an air of ‘imperfection’ designed into them that gives them a much more realistic look and appeal to me….they just feel more real to me.
I’ve built this cool chill area outside my house with the Pergola from Bee Designs who specialise in these type of gorgeous outdoor areas and home furnishings at the moment. This set comes with a Pergola with singles and couples animations at Tres Chic and I
threw carefully arranged some extra colourful boho cushions from unKindness at this round of Shiny Shabby.
My look is mainly courtesy of Uber with this pretty loose layered summer top from Reverie which comes in a both Slink sizes and Maitreya fit and new bootcut jeans from Vinyl which come in 3 Belleza, 2 Slink and Maitreya fits. I just bought the one colour of the jeans but it comes with a hud with 4 metal colour changes too.
