Boat in the Sand

Posted on Updated on

I’ve always been somewhat shy about wearing very petite skirts in Second Life, so when I tried on the demo for Blueberry’s sensational Britain denim skirts and saw that they come with optional (and color-change!) mesh panties, I was immediately charmed and instantly sold. The exceptional designers behind Blueberry really do think of everything!

My top is the beautifully textured Ruhi Layered Blouse by Zaara, available at the current round of Colabor88. There were so many wonderful items to discover at C88, but as I only just returned, I had to sneak in for the final push. If only there were more hours in the day, and more days in the week!

You never quite know what you’ll find when you’re delightedly tripping about the grid’s regions in more-or-less alphabetical order, but when I spied the name 4Play, I had a feeling I might encounter some sauciness! While the sim certainly advertises adult services, it was very quiet when I visited, so I spent a lovely hour or more just enjoying the beachscaping and scenery. Isn’t it pretty? ♡

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! ♡
