Shoetopia Sim Guide, Lessening Lag, & The Sugar Garden Newness! Bunny.

by

I have not always been a super huge fan of The Sugar Garden skins in the past. I am subscribed to the updater tho and got the notice last night that there was a new skin released, Bunny. I decided what the hell. I purchased Bunny and some new brows as well. I have always bought my brows from .tsg. and was excited to use them on an actual tsg skin. For some reason though, I do think I have one skin from here from a long time ago. I have no idea. Yes, I am too lazy to look right now and just too “down” to do so atm. I was told by a blogger of Shoetopia that the Shoetopia event would be opening at 12 am slt on the 15th. I waited up for 6 hours so that I could get in and out since I will be super busy IRL for the next couple days I wanted to blog a few things from there and get it accomplished and put off my checklist. Upon writing Anessa Stine, the owner of Shoetopia, she informed me that the event opens @ 12pm slt. She did apologize for the mis-information that the blogger had told me and was very nice. I was hoping she would let me sneak in for a minute but oh well. :P

Bunny Post

I chose to use this outfit today to show u an example of how I would approach an event with heavy traffic and lag. We all know that the more scripts and attachments we wear , the more lag we put ourselves and others through. This can be frustrating as we want to look adorable 24/7…and hearing that we need to lighten scripts and attachments automatically puts this hairless, naked noob in our heads! You don’t have to risk your appearance completely but it is a good idea to tone it down…a lot. What I am wearing in this photo is perfectly reasonable in my opinion. Here are a couple tips to help reduce lag for yourself and fellow fashioner’s at events, while still looking your best!

DO:

*Wear texture clothing. I suggest a cute lingerie set or bodysuit.

*Detach ALL huds! This is super important since huds carry the most scripts. This includes your “AO”. Do not simply turn your AO off but detach it completely.

YOU CAN ALSO MAKE SOME QUICK CHANGES TO YOUR GRAPHICS SETTINGS via Ctrl + P:

*Keep your graphics settings on low but turn your Objects & Sculpts LOD to at least “2″

*Turn on avatar impostors under graphics settings via Ctrl + P.

*Set your Max. # of non-impostor avatars to “1″. This will make everyone’s avi look a little low quality but will enhance the performance.

*Under Level of Distance Factors, turn sliders all the way down for Flexiprims, Avatars, Trees, and Terrain.

*Draw Distance settings should be set between 80-96. Lowering too much will not help but can make your lag worse.

Hope this helps! Remember, Shoetopia opens today, November 15th @ 12pm slt. I will provide the slurls below! (Links still broken so just copy and paste the link)

What A Journey

by

Today I wanted to do a little dedication to Katey Coppola, owner of Glitterati and one of the most talented humans in this world we call Second Life.

Today I received some news through a heart-felt letter from Katey stating that, after 5 amazing years of running Glitterati, she will be closing it’s doors. :(. Although this is a sad movement for most of us, it is a goal accomplished and a fully written, and now closed, book for Ms. Coppola.  If you would like to read the letter in full or have any words or comments for Katey,  go HERE to do so.

Remember! Everything in the store will be on sale starting today until June 30th. All poses and props are 50% off or $L100, whichever is the cheaper price. Even though I already have every single prop from Glitterati, there was ONE that I had yet to retrieve but did so today..along with a TON of new poses. In the post below I used an old pose and a new pose from Glitterati. In honor of all the fun, beauty, and inspiration that I have gotten from Katey I will be using only Glitterati poses for the rest of the week. If Ms. Coppola happens to see this post, Thank You for being one of the best creators to hit the Second Life grid. You will be missed! <3 ( sounds like someone died when you put it that way ) Lmfao…sorry had to lighten the mood! :)

Again I am behind on this Meme but wanted to do it!  Thx Berry!

What’s your SL name? Bella Szentmartony (Bells)
What made you choose this name? This is too embarrassing! I used to be a HUGE twihard (twilight). So I chose the name Bella. I wanted to get a last name that started with “S” for “Swan” and I chose the first one that came up..Szentmartony.
What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable) Bells, Hoe Bag..LOL
What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable) Usually just Bella or Bells. I choose one to have pretty text!
Do you like your SL name? Absolutely..but if I could go back I would change my complicated last name.
If you could change your SL name, what would it be? Bella Blogger
What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen? There are just wayyy to many to list.What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen? Mona Lisa

Friday Night

by

Yes indeed this post WAS intended for last night aka “Friday Night”… I failed you all but I also failed a little of myself :P I went gambling last night for the first time..and yes I am 25 years old! LOL! Anyhoo, my cousin talked me into going I blew 40 bucks and won nothing. (Big spender eh? ;) ) My cousin threw in 60 bucks and won 450 her first try! So she gives me 180 to blow on more games…which only took me 10 minutes. Again..ZILCH! She spent almost all of her winnings but did walk out with a sense or pride. I was devastated. How can you win that much and continue to throw it away? I did learn one thing..gambling is NOT for this girl. Have you guys ever gambled and won or had my luck? Let me know in the comments below!

friday night friday night hud

This new dress from Mon Cheri is soo pretty and the back is flawlessly cut. I LOVE fat packs but hate all the space they

take up in my inventory. Mon Cheri released this awesome hud for the fat pack of this release which makes

it much more simple….and saves me a ton of space in my inventory!
