A New Dawn, A New Day

Posted on Updated on

Well hello again, you! ♡

In a wonderful twist of happenstance, it’s been almost exactly one year since I began my Happily Ever Afterr blog, and after an unexpected (but much-needed) hiatus, I’m overjoyed to be writing about the virtual world again. Did you miss me, SL? I certainly missed you!

The other day, I was listening to the song “Feeling Good” by the luminous Nina Simone, and it was so apt for how I was feeling in that moment in time: happy and serene, full of appreciation, and in essence, genuinely “feeling good”. That song, and my invigorated spirit, was just the spark I needed to feel compelled to rediscover my Second Life once more.

As you may notice, along with my uplifted effervescence, my look has also been updated! I had resisted mesh heads last year, fearing that they may somewhat hinder the wearer’s unique spirit and style, but it’s amazing how much changes in 7 months’ time. There are so many varieties and options for mesh heads, that I was dazzled for choice and had great fun trying on many demos and styles. In the end, it was Melissa by Genesis Lab that stole my heart, and felt wholly – and uniquely – like “me”.

In other news, I’ve been joyfully indulging in my wanderlust, traversing the grid on a quest for picturesque sights and hidden gems. With Project Sansar aiming to launch later this year, I had the lovely idea to create a bit of a Second Life time capsule via photography, sharing the destinations on Flickr for other avid virtual world wanderers to explore. It’s been a tremendously enjoyable journey thus far, and I hope you’ll join me on “Ever’s Quest” over on Flickr to see which destinations, both well-loved and lesser-known, are yours for the exploring!

It’s my hope that I’ll be able to post here on my blog at least twice a week, when time graciously allows. So until next time, dear reader: thank you so much for continuing to peek at my blog; it means the world to me that you care. Lots of love to you! ♡

    Reblogged this on Magick Thoughts of Second Life and commented:
    I have been looking at mesh heads and noticing what I like. My classic body head shape is the old retired Belleza Melissa. I love it and don’t want to stray off too much from it. So I notice mesh heads that may be a little bit like it are not really out there. But this one….. its name is Melissa and its by Genesis Lab which I have never heard of. I like it. My search continues but if anyone has any more info on this designer and this head and/or any info on a head that is bit like the old Belleza Melissa… PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
