How many times have you purchased an item that look wonderful in the store,, yet just doesn’t cut it when you get it home. Sure they offer you a demo.. you try it in the store, it fits, or so you think, but then you get it home and wear it doing your “normal” routine activities. It is not what you thought it would be… It looked so good on the advert… hmmm.

First to buy something that is going to make YOU look good, you have to look at what the designer is doing with his/her outfits.. What are the models being used. If you are a Type A figure and all the models are Type D figures, consider you are not going to look like the model in the picture .. unless you change your body type.

There is a misconception in SL or any other virtual world that the women are all Barbies or want to be a Barbie doll, and that is just not so. Like in the real world, you have to shop for the designer(s) that will provide you with outfits that make YOU look good, Are they knocking off the same cut and design every other week, only difference is the textures being used, or the colour combinations.

Consider how you want to look, what you want the outfit to do for you. We all want to look our best, most of the time anyway. Find a designer whose clothes fit you well, they move with you, they show off what you want to be seen. That goes for colour combinations too.

You never just buy a hairstyle because its on sale, you try it, wear it, and look at it from all angles to make sure it compliments and shows you off .. at your best. The same applies to the clothes you adorn yourself with.

The model used for this blog is slender, and small busted. I shopped for clothes that would flatter her figure. I lucked out, I found a designer (no he wasn’t lost! ) it was by chance, I was searching out a location for a photo shoot, and got stuck in a tree… he came to my rescue.. LOL wonders of wonders there are still gallant men out there. I heard that mutter “dumb blonde”, but that’s ok I have moments.

The designer’s shop is #Benk, the LM is

The bikini ladies is this month’s group gift if you are interested.

The leather top the model (taupe) is wearing, is his as well, it comes in a variety of colours and can be transparent or semi transparent. His prices are good, if his clothing line appeals to you, you will enjoy shopping there.

hairstyle is from No.Match

pants Carolla jeans from Le’La

nb* I am not a fashion blogger for these shops.. They are simply shops I have shopped at.

Till soon

In a land far away


It is nice to be able to travel and explore the creativity of others, This is Japanese themed Estate. Gardens and Bath house.

It is beautifully done and welcomes tourists to come explore and enjoy … photographers are welcome. If you are an SL traveller, this is the link

When I was a child, my father would take me to places that now are only distant memories. These memories come back to me when I explore Asian builds in the virtual world.

Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what yhou should do.

Perfect Liberty 2021.31

During these times of restricted travel, virtual travel is actually a great way to learn about other cultures, and places you’ve never been before. In SL I have met so many wonderful and interesting people, I have been…

Hedy Patrucci

Ladies and Gents, this lady can sing. Her performance is something you don’t want to miss. I had to wait.. time zones.. it was worth the wait. I joined her group so that I would know when she is due to sing.. Her song list is extensive, from Adele, Diana Krall, Eartha Kitt, Leann Rimes to my favourites Norah Jones even Rita Coo. These are just samplings. I saw her a the Ville de Coeur -Harbor Square. If you join her group, you will be notified when and where she will be next.

I heard about her months ago, it really was a challenge to find a time to hear her .. her partner Lord had sent me a link to a couple of her recordings. From Europe, she appears in clubs not familiar to us here in North America.. Honestly.. find the time.. you’ll be glad you did.

Hedy’s group > Fan of Hedy Patrucci do yourself a favour, check it out. for more information you can contact Lord Voxel.. here is a tease

Till soon


8th July

hello everyone, this is the post from my main blog


Always be true to yourself

Good morning everyone, yesterday was a very busy day, thought I’d share a bit of it with you. I’ll also be posting this article in the Virtual News 8 blog. Lessons we learn along the way are many, yesterday, I enjoyed sharing time with friends in the virtual world of Second Life. It was a reminder of how being with friends and sharing pastimes, and interest, listening to good music and just “chilling” can make for an awesome visit.

My good friend and “sister” in SL is Yume Yoshikawa, she is a FT DJ in SL and has been for absolutely years. We go back to 2007. Where I have been mostly a builder, doing builds, designs and selling my line of clothes, she was and is always working her talents as a music buff who shares her gift…
