I finally installed Firestorm 4.7.3 (47323) release, though I was still crashing after doing a clean install and crashing every time I teleport or rezz item or even see myself, I just felt hmm.. yesterday wasn’t my day and I logged off.
Today I decided to give it a try and see what comes out of it and I must say it was very stable and great, I was able to teleport, rezz items and see myself better for the first times in weeks. That is not only the excitement I got, after setting the scene for my blog post, I usually play around with different photo shot and angles to see which I prefer only to see the Second Life Snapshot screen now comes with a filter option yooohooooo.
That was the most exciting discovery for me and I did play with some of the filters. The one I really liked and which didn’t take so much out of my photo shot was the Blown Highlight, others are great such as the Sephia, Lens Flare etc. People who love to take pictures would love this feature so so much. Am surely going to be having lot of fun and I guess others bloggers and photographers are going to love this features..
Today I decide to show off some home decor, 22769 ~ Bauwerk release these lovely set for the Love to Decorate – The Event and I love this set so much and didn’t want to take so much from. This set is available for the event from August 10th – September 10th, 2015

Weddings…on Second Life you only get married six or seven times a year. If that were the case in real life, no one would rent tuxes. They would be part of our regular wardrobe. I know, sometimes SL marriages do work, occasionally in spectacular fashion. It’s that hope that keeps a lot of us going, and going, and going- (much to the dismay of our friends). My point is: the longer you are here on Second Life, the more impossible it is not to become partnered in some way to someone you care about. When that happens, you must have something fantastic to wear.
Tiffany’s Designs have recently changed their monthly group gift. Previously, it was a beautiful white suit that I wear often when I wander around the grid. This time, they have outdone even that gorgeous garment! The Mae Men’s Wedding Suit *Paris consists of two pieces meant to be worn together, so it is simple to wear. Each part is offered in five Mesh sizes to help make the fit just plain easy. The first piece is the jacket, which is black and nicely textured, complete with long tails. The remaining piece is the rest of the tux including the shirt, tie, pants and waistcoat in one combined garment. When worn, it is an elegant tux that will turn heads, whether you are standing at the altar or slow dancing with someone you adore. The Tiffany’s Designs group is not free (it will set you back 50L), but the quality of the gifts make it well worth it!
This August is another great month to be a guy on Second Life. Currently, running is the fourteen store Fashion Play For Men Hunt. The eyes I choose to wear with this tux are Fashion Eyes – Charm, the Fashion Play For Men Hunt prize from Inkheart . They are light gray with a slight greenish tint. They look pretty realistic and I am very pleased with them. One nice thing about Inkheart . is they participate in a lot of hunts and are quite generous with their gifts. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt prizes cost 1L each and are expected to be out all month. As if that’s not enough, starting August 29th is the Men’s Only Hunt 6 which should have over sixty participating merchants. I can hardly wait!
Second Life, where romance blooms all year around! (Amazing how fertile the soil is when so much fertilizer is laid down first.) Seriously, part of SL is the romance and mystery of blossoming relationships, and if you choose not to take the time for a romantic dance every so often, you are missing out on a great deal of fun. Go pick up some seriously dashing clothes and give it a shot. Your Second Life just might become even more amazing. That’s it for now, my friends. See you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

The best beach days are bud days, so I’ve dragged Thrust out of her closet to play! We’re out and about in Second Life and what do we find? A super cute little beach scene in the corner of Retroville, complete with this amazingly colorful fence for a bit of “privacy’. Who could ask for more?! Love it.
The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it ~Hubert H. Humphrey
Current bid on the Skip Staheli picture is 15,000 Lindens. Bidding ends July 26,2015. The first picture, which can be taken with me in the background with you, (I was thinking ala Hitchock style) with the style of your choice. And my besty Skip has very graciously announced he will offer a Second picture of you for FREE! See why I love him so much? Follow this LINK to see some of his other work.
My gorgie girl friend Becky so smartly pointed out that I have given no times for the shoot and, well duh, Cao moment! We DO all live in other corners of this very rounded world. I rang up Skip and he filled in the blanks for me! He typically works betwixt 1 to 3PM SLT (Monday thru Friday only) and since he is booked solid until October, the appointment will have to be made for after that point. Just be assured, you WILL get the appointment, and it will be of no cost to you because every single linden of the winning bid will go directly to Hair Fair 2015 and deposited to the Wigs for Kids charity. Every single bit.
So if it’s better to give than to receive, just guess how amazing it’s going to feel to give AND receive! I’ve included some of the many pictures Skip has taken of me through the years of our friendship and trust me, it was very hard to decide which to post up. I just love them ALL! I just know you will too, it’s quite simply, a work of art to be treasured for years to come!
We probably all remember the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” I remember thinking: “But diamonds are hard and why do boys get dogs?!” Because dogs were man’s best friend — what was up with that? Life was so unfair! Well MINA @ the Hair Fair, Belle Epoque and Empyrean Forge are here to save the day with outstanding fashion (as usual!) to make up for all the insanity!
I had spent a hard day’s work braving Hair Fair, where I picked up this amazing FREE gift from MINA @ the Hair Fair called Selenia. This gift is only available in Grey tones (which was fine by me as it fits my roleplay character (a glass fae) just perfectly! But it would also be terrific for mature looks or even in the very lightest shade to pass for a platinum blonde.
The great thing is that this is one of those second chance gifts! You first saw this hair HERE where it was blogged as an amazing find by Love Trill at The Arcade Gacha! So if you missed it then, now it’s available for a second go ’round!
My next stop was a quick jump to Belle Epoque for their amazing FREE group gift which is perfect for any roleplayer’s wardrobe and can be worn as is — or over the top of system clothes or applier clothes for more modesty if desired. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE as well. It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes, and includes three great colors (I’m only showing you the green but there is also a beautiful blue and a fabulous brown shade inside the package as well!).
I had decided that the evening now called for a little relaxation, which meant I headed home to sit by the fire and did the rest of my shopping via the marketplace where I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite designers — Empyrean Forge — is spoiling us all with a special promo! A 1L giftie of their Contessa ring in either a lustrous white or sexy black pearl option (depending upon which way you go)!
This is great because you can give it as a gift to a friend as well if you like. I finished my look off with a lovely manicure set by alaskametro in a french silver finish for slink hands. The applier kit is on the Marketplace and has a great palette choice of 25 colors for only 25L. That’s a hard deal to beat for such a great color set!
In case you were wondering, yes I did splurge. With all the mullah I saved on my other goodies for this get-up, I did buy the jewelry that matches the Contessa ring! Empyrean forge is offering a lovely matching necklace and matching bracelet and with a color change hud, each with two metal choices, and 12 gemstone finishes. I just couldn’t resist!
