When you have a blogger or photographer on your Second Life friends list, you may find yourself needfully cultivating a lot of patience for distracted conversations (I’m the world’s worst multitasker, truly), as well as gracious tolerance when you get out-of-the-blue questions like “Hey darlin, where’s that one elevator again?” So this picture is dedicated to my dear friend Alex, whom I met at Elysion what feels like worlds ago, and who very kindly came through for me when I was looking for a particular locale. I hope I did it justice!
Speaking of destinations, I’m slowly working on a project that I hope will complement my SL Fashion & Shopping Events Calendar, but is more focused on picturesque locales for fellow photographers and virtual world wanderers to explore. There are some wonderful Flickr groups dedicated to SL locations, and there’s always the official Destination Guide, but the one I’m working on will be more at-a-glance and quick reference. Of particular interest are places that are rez-enabled, so if you have favorite destinations to share, please never hesitate to get in touch! ♡
“my office glows all night long
it’s a nuclear show, and the stars are gone
take me home …”

Destination & Inspiration
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!

Pose & Destination
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? ♡
