Bastet Hazelnut - Fashion and lifestyle blog about Second Life


12 September, 2014 - 23:00


You know that thing when a girl or a woman is really dressed up and they say she's "dolled up"? I've always found it somehow undermining, unpleasant thing to say. Calling a girl or a woman a doll is to me a way to put them down. I know it's supposedly a compliment and cutesy thing to say. I do know it's an old way to say things, there are many old ways to say things that are now deemed bad. Women used to be dolls, or at least they were supposed to be. Dolls don't have minds of their own, dolls are controlled by someone else. Dolls are pretty and they are quiet, they don't talk back, they don't do anything unless they are made to do it.

Are you a doll, or are you in control of your own mind and body?

Grey November

As I mentioned earlier, I have been a bit away from Second Life. It was due to my old stucky Macbook, all sorts of things with RL and general lack of inspiration about SL.

Now that I'm back I feel almost as lost as the day I first rezzed. Everything is different. Many of the old favourite stores are now gone, everything is in mesh and half of the places I used to go hang have vanished. Because of this I took my SLurls list, dropped all the content from it and started a new Shop and go SL list with SLurls and Marketplace links.

Because I don't know how to use the new search effectively, I'm relying on other blogs and Second Life Destination Guide on finding pretty places to roam and take photos. Through the last one I found grey november gallery, which looks pretty much like my RL right now. If anyone tells you there's snow in Finland at the moment, they are either much Norther than me or are lying.

If you have suggestions for places to go or clothes and other things to shop, do tell me. You can drop a line on the comment box below this post email me or IM inworld. I'd love your help!

For a long time i didn't have much of a home in SL. Even when I already was renting a store space from Starlust I was loitering on a sky platform of my friend Yolanda's piece of land. In the beginning of this year I rented, with a couple of my fellow Finn friends (including Yo) a homestead. Since I now had a real home I decided to build a house that ended up becoming the quite popular Green House. I even furnished it, but never felt like hanging around there much. During this spring I decided I wouldn't have a home on the ground of my piece of land.

Feel like home

(More words, pictures and credits in the full post.)

Stacie Pryor, who is better known as a fashion blogger has built and released a very pretty get lost/get found skybox. And I was lucky enough to get it as a gift from her. Even if I know I most likely won't keep a "home" rezzed, I wanted to take a moment or two to furnish this cozy skybox. Just cause it's so adorable. I decided to throw in some of the furnitures and decorations I found from my messy inventory.

And when it comes to being lucky enough to get gifts, I felt really lucky during yesterday. Stacie happened not to be the only one drowning me into gifts. moonbubble Gothly, the designer behind [ bubble ] sent a flood of her creations to my direction and got me speechless by doing this. So I decided to make a pretty unusual look (well unusual for me) using some of moon's creations, some from others and some of my own designs.
