№ 1033 SKATE BOARD FEAR

Almost 2 years ago I made my Second Life bucket list . I will get back to that list in posts to come because  there are still things on that list that “need”to be done in here.

In my real life I got a bucket list as well and on that list is learning how to skateboard.
I know how to move on skeelers and inline skates but doing my thing on a skateboard remains one bridge to far. Main reason is the fact that I am scared that I hurt my ass , back or leggs by falling down. Learning how to skate can  be done standing behind a chair that is how I learned how to ice skate as a child but that is not a possibility when it comes to rolling on a skate board.
The question is now : do I have to get rid of my fear of falling before I start rolling on a skate board or do I get rid of my fear of falling because I start rolling on a skate board ?
In Second Life my pixel ass can take a fall without any problem.
Posed here as  skate board chick trying to collect some courage on the other side of the pixel fence.
Enjoy your weekend and have fun while you shop until you drop.

№ 1031 PIXELSTYLES MEETING PINTEREST

Inspiration 3_001

To get my bloggers ideas and inspiration I am a web junkie.

In my search for  fix for pics I end up on Pinterest on a daily basis to work on my personal mood boards en  let the creative juices flow.
I collected a lot of pictures and I desided to challange myself once a week to chose one picture that struck a chord  and make a Second Life version of that picture.
PixelStyles meeting Pinterest and this is the first one.
Sophia Loren movie star and sexbomb and I just love this quote from her :
“If you haven’t cried ,your eyes can’t be beautiful”
The poses on the picture are not quit the same and my avi is not half as beautiful as Sophia is  but I am happy with my first challenge result.
Have fun while you shop until you drop.

№ 1029 BLOGGERS BUZZ

Years ago when I started this blog using the services of Blogger I made a blog trough WordPress as well. The options on WordPress are more extensive  so more complicated and me being a noob blogger got along faster  with Blogger, so the choise witch service to use was an easy choise.

My blog is not in the danger zone ( I think ) when it comes to the new rules but I  get a little irritated when rules are not totaly clear to me and this forced upon rules can change in to other more heavy set of rules. Maybe it is a storm in a teacup but to be on the safe side I dived in the WordPress world again and  I injected new life in my WordPress blog. I will be maintaining 2 blogs for a while and maybe move over when I feel no longer at home at Blogger.
The name PixelStyles was already taken years ago so my blogname at WordPress is inkieStyles and is called on my blogpage inkie PixelStyles.
So I stop rambeling about Blogger and WordPress, back to what I do best and that is shopping.
I just looooooooooove the new MINA Hair available at Shiny Shabby and the flair jeans from [NV]
Good luck in making the right choises and have fun while you shop until  you drop.

№ 1028 SECOND LIFE MADE ME LEARN CHALLANGE

Every Monday it is challange / meme day of Strawberry Singh and I try to follow every week.
Meme instructions by Miss Berry herself : Share things that you have learned because of your involvement in Second Life, either personally or professionally. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post at Berry her post  so others can come by and read your answers as well!
  • Social Media – Before Second Life I was a total noob when it comes to what is happening on the internet. Did not have a Facebook account never heard of Flickr , Skype ,  Plurk and Pinterest and only knew Twitter existed because I heard people at my real life work talking about it. My Facebook and Skype  account is a mix between second life and real life people, all the other social media platforms are second life related and I don’t have a Twitter account … jet .. should I get one and why ?
  • Blogging – Learned how to make and manage a blog. My Pixel Styles blog is one of the main reason I still log in to Second Life. I would be bored out of my mind without blogging. In real life I even gave tips to some of my colleagues how to start a blog  about there hobby’s
  • Being social – By heart I am a loner and shy. I started to work as a host in Woods Club to get over my social awkwardness. Don’t work there anymore but Woods is still my favorite hang out if I need a bloggers break. Great music and nice people who let me be me.
  • Not all people have a sexual agenda – Found out after some mess ups and mistakes that not everybody in Second Life have sexual reasons to be in here. I am still  a littbe bit suspicious when I first start talking to people but that is the little voice of reason from my Mother “never talk to strangers ” speaking to me.
  • Role Play is not for me – In real life I did some role playing .. not going to tell how  but I did. In Second Life I tried it as well in different worlds and I don’t like it. My emote skill sucks and I fall out of character all the time making people upset and angry.
Today I had my 100th visitor @ *** Beautiful  4  Seasons  ***

№ 1027 DECK DECORATIONS

Since I started as a blogger more and more I shift  to home & garden posts.
Making fashion posts is like playing dress up with my pixel Barbie and decorating is like playing with my dollhouse. Moving the furniture back and forth , mixing and matching styles I just love it.
Since the rise of mesh the prim count of furniture pieces is dropping , so more fun to fuzz about the details.  In the midst of stormy and rainy weather in real life I can pretend it is Summer on the other side of the pixel fence.
At  COLLABOR88  the February editon Trompe Loeil is offering a great hide away for near the wather and some compfortable chairs. The cushions on the chair match perfectly in tone and coloring with the Lounge Pillows of [ we’re CLOSED ] avialable at the  Cosmopolitan Event
Enjoy mixing , matching and moving the furniture and  have fun while you shop until you drop.
