Don't let the Tea Burn!

I want to apologize in advance, my normal computer, which allows me to get on Second Life, to take and edit pictures, to get on my social media sites and such....well, it has broken, and I have no idea how to fix it. And apparently, neither does Geek Squad. So my blog is going to be on a brief hiatus for a few days. Hopefully I will only miss one Sunday post, but I may be out of commission for two Sundays while my computer is sent off to be fixed. I am using my old dinosaur of a laptop right now, and while it is being a trooper, it does not like getting onto Second Life. So, please bare with me for the next week or two. This really sucks since I just started my blog, but hopefully I will get my new laptop back and everything will be right as rain.

Thank you for your understanding!

Would you like a cup of Camomile?

So, this is the first real post for my blog. There will be a post every Sunday, it's my goal at least. This Sunday, I don't have any life altering stories to share. I do have one small story though. Go ahead, get the kettle off the stove, steep some camomile with me.

So my Real Life and Second Life twin sister, Earth Tvilling, and I have a Second Life family. Most of the people on Second Life do, or at least are in the process of finding a family. Some people join groups, and the group becomes their family. For example if you join a role player group, a club group, or something along those lines. Others create a family from the friends they meet. Earth and I were lucky enough to have found our family...or maybe they found us... My family always inspires me and my outfits. They are my muses, they are honest with me if something doesn't look right for me, or if it just doesn't go. Overall, Families on Second Life, I feel are important in Second Life (not just so you know if those jeans make you look fat). Back to the story...

Earth and I have been offline for a lot of the fall and winter months due to Real Life issues. So the other day, I sent out a notice to our family members. It just said Earth and I would be online more, we missed everyone, and just wanted to say, "Hi! Missed your faces! Talk to us when you see us online if we don't talk to you first because we want updates. Hugs and Smooches." Maybe not in those exact words, but the heart of the message is the same. Yesterday, Earth and I were at Aggro, a cool dragon place, hanging out, I was taking pictures, like these:
Earth Tvilling: wearing Seawolf Adult Dragon Avatar and Purple Silk Collier by Spirit of Dragons

So as I was taking pictures of Earth, and she was strutting her Dragoness self, one of our family members IMs the two of us. We were so excited, Earth ended up doing dragon rides, which lead to a gryphon ride by another member of the family, which then ended up with, "Let's shoot Sun with arrows and go hunting." Needless to say we had a blast. Had not done that in a while. Just spending time with them doing crazy stuff was amazing.
Now you are wondering, were is the Fashion? This is supposed to be a fashion blog. Add your cream, sugar, and or lemon...Take a sip of you now perfectly steeped tea.

I was inspired to create this outfit because I love the rain, because rain waters the plants, and I love gardening, so rain is awesome. Saves me from having to water all my flowers, nature does it for me! So what does my time spent with my Second Life family have to do with my outfit and rain? My family makes me smile; they are the soft gentle warm rain that you can go dance in and feel like life is the most amazing thing ever. They are what makes you feel exhilarated after a long day or night at work. And if the rain is hard, cold, and it is storming out, they are my umbrella. BAM! Bet you didn't see that one coming!

All in all, I just wanted to share with you how important my Second Life family is to me in my Second Life.

There's Nothing Like that First Cup of Tea

Thanks for checking into my first Second Life Blog.  If you have read the info tab on the blog, you already know this is going to be a blog mostly about the new and old fashions of Second Life. And maybe I will put little happenings about my second life on here. Please bare with me while I start this blog. I have been going to the fashion fairs, gacha events, and am an avid shopper on Second Life. When I get online, I am usually shopping, plan on shopping, or am getting dressed in my new outfits or dresses I bought on marketplace.

Because of all this shopping and exploring, I have been taking my friends to all the different places to shop and doing research on the other blogs to try and find new events, new releases, and fun places to go for a good shopping experience. I got to thinking about what I could do to help my friends learn about the events, without sending note-cards, random landmarks and IMs, and sending them pictures of me in my new outfits--I figured, Why not start a Blog? I have been reading some of the other Second Life blogs, and they are all amazing, but most of them don't go into as much detail as I would like, or some of them seem to talk too much about other things I wasn't interested in very much. I am the kind of person who loves the story. I love to know why or how an outfit or creation was inspired, I like to know the reactions people have had, I love the story! So, Sunday Tea and Fashion is going to be about the fashion, but be prepared to have a cuppa and enjoy a good story.

Hopefully at some point I will be able to talk to some of the wonderful creators and designers of the outfits I wear, but since I am just starting out, please bare with me. I look forward to
drinking tea with you soon.
