Too Much Time on My Hands

It’s creeping up to the new year, time to throw away the old and make way for the new. I’ve decided that isn’t only relevant in real life and it’s time to create a new year, new you in Second Life as well. I’ll start with creating a new style of photography and blogging. I won’t stop writing I enjoy that part far too much. It is my intention this year to improve my photography skills, learn new things to help me get those spots that I want so badly. It’s time for another growth of Danni’s Dream. I hope you will all join me on this journey and offer constructive criticism when needed in the comments.

I’ve decided to take some help and advice from my very dear friend Adalynne Romano, she’s bossy and demanding and usually absolutely right. She poked and prodded, suggested and demanded, and what you see here is the end result of that. I wanted to blog this lovely sweater and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. I started searching through my blog groups to see what decor items were available and I found these amazing clocks from Plastik. Available right now at SaNaRae, which runs from 12/26 until 1/17, you can pick 5 individual packs of two clock colors or a fatpack that includes four special colors as well. I took my shot and wasn’t entirely happy with how little of the clock you could see, inspiration struck and I added some smaller clocks. These clocks are resizeable through the modify function to be able to fit them in your decor.

The perfect shot requires the perfect pose. It doesn’t matter how good you look if the pose doesn’t do it justice. Foxcity is by far one of my favorite pose creators in Second Life. I feel that Satomi does a fabulous job at bringing my avatar to life.

Now we get to the part where I have to really re-think my photography. As you may know, I tend to do a full shot then zoom in on my face to provide a closeup of my face. Sometimes the number of pictures I do is overwhelming, not only to my readers but to myself as well. It’s all about the angle and the zoom factor in Second Life.

Adoness very graciously accepted my application to become a blogger for her. I have used her hairs for YEARS, I love the funky styles that she produces and this hair, although older is still completely relevant. I love the curly, a-line style of this hair and how it frames my face so fantastically.

New Year’s Eve

2017 has been quite the experience, not only for myself but for so many of my friends and family. I can’t say I’m not anxious to brush the dirt of 2017 off and move on to new adventures and hopefully true happiness in 2018. I decided that it’s close enough to New Year’s Eve to post a blog about it, right?

When I first saw this new backdrop from Varonis I knew I was going to blog it. The formal, dark setting is just perfect for about anything. I chose to great a ballroom for my New Year’s Eve party. Available right now at Shiny Shabby this backdrop and is only 44LI. I was shocked when I went to grab it and found out it was only 199L, a steal in my opinion.

A new year’s eve party wouldn’t be complete without champagne, balloons, and more would it? I had seen a set from Chez Moi that was available for 50% off, I missed that deal but I found it in the Marketplace for full price and had to have it. This set comes with champagne cart, hanging stars, wall lights, and string decor. The champagne cart comes with animated poses for eating, drinking, and chatting built into it, there are single male and female as well as couples poses.

I went to Uber, only intending on buying the fabulous hair from Mina and saw this balloon set. Hive created it and it includes 4 types of balloons in three metallic colors.

The perfect setting deserves the perfect gown right? Well, The Annex is at Genre this month, sadly this will be the final round of Genre. I blogged for them when they first opened so it makes me a little sad to see this event go away. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass and is available in 5 colors. It’s just gorgeous. Oh, did I mention? I was accepted as an official blogger for The Annex, I’m so excited!

When I first saw this hair I had to have it, I love updos. I have REALLY short hair in real life and even when I had long hair I couldn’t do a thing with it, so hair is an addiction for me in SL. Mina released this hair for Uber and it comes with a minimal style HUD that includes a bang and no bang options.
