True Love’s Beginning

True Love's Beginning

Hello everyone!  I will be moving blog addresses starting today and completely effective as of February 10th.  I will still be blogging and all that jazz, just moving to a domain with hosting other than wordpress. So if you have us on your blogroll or follow list, or you are one of the many designers we blog for the new address will be:  Once Upon a Second Life.   If you don’t already know, the two of us, He Got Swag (Brayden Thirdborn) and Miss Painfully Hip (DanicaSaerwen), have decided to join blogs.  Why?  Well to start the story,  Brayden and I met here in Second Life.  We fell in love with each other and got married in world.  Then we decided to take it into the real life and began the start of a great relationship.  Four years later, here we are, married in Real Life, and of course living together.  Some say they don’t believe in fairy tales.  Well I do.  Because I’m living my fairy tale here in Real Life and in Second Life with the same amazing man and family.  So we want to share our Second Life with you.  Our fashion, our joy, our happiness, our passions, our family and much much more.  We hope you will continue following us here now through this storybook.  We love you all, our friends, family, fans, and followers.

❤ Dani & Brayden

Know I Love You More

Know I Love You More

Good morning lovelies!  And happy Monday!  I know most people hate Mondays, but I like them because it’s my Sunday, my day off work!   A lot of us are off work anyways because it’s Martin Luther King Day.  So enjoy your day!  I have some new stuff I would like to show you today so get your purses and wallets ready!

If you haven’t been to the Cosmetic Fair, you should definitely run down there because you will find this gorgeous skin, Mokatana, from Glam Affair.  It’s available in 8 different makeups in this lovely Artic tone.  So go get your favorite!

There’s a new event in town and it’s called The Theme Park.  It’s a monthly event that changes at the 15th of every month.  The theme for this round is Vintage.  This gorgeous dress from Coquet is just one of the many designs available at this event.  It is available in 3 colors so you can go get your favorite one.  The textures on this dress are just amazing so you don’t want to miss out on this.

New Truth Hair?  That’s right.  This GORGEOUS new hair called Esperanza is just one of the two hairs that was released yesterday.  You can’t go wrong with Truth Hair.  It gets better with every release.  You’ll fall in love with each one!  You can never have too many.

Have a great Monday everyone!

Happy Shopping,

❤ Dani

Cause We Got the Fire

Happy Saturday lovelies!  I hope everyone had a great week.  I think we’re probably all glad it’s the weekend. Still getting caught up but I am still going to show you some new designs that are out for you to go pick up because they are still available for you to go get!

This gorgeous skin, called Magenta, made by the beautiful Aida Ewing from Glam affair is available at The Seasons Story collection for the winter round.  This is a pre-release of this skin so definitely something you want to check out and demo!

And this dress from Color.Me.H.O.F.. I don’t even have the words.  It’s so fabulous!  You can get it in several different colors but this color was just too sexy so it was my favorite.  Go get yours!

Also while I was gone on vacation Lelutka released some new hair and this one is just to die for!  It’s called NEU.  There’s a version that goes over both of your shoulders but I just loved this one this most so I had to have it.  Must demo it!  You won’t walk away empty handed.

Happy Shopping lovelies!

Winter’s Kiss

Winter's Kiss

Good morning lovelies!  I just love winter.  All the snow and pretty things.  I’m sorry I’ve been away for a bit.  Real life has been kicking my butt.  BUT I’m back now and happier than ever.  I have some wonderful news to share!  My SL husband, Brayden Thirdborn and I eloped in Real Life this past weekend!  We’ve been together for a long while now and just felt that it was time.  I know we wanted to do the big wedding and reception but for now this is just as good. We’ll do all the big stuff next year.  The important thing is we are more in love than we’ve ever been.  And it was definitely the right decision.

Ok ok enough of my mushy story haha!  Anyways I wanted to share this beautiful picture with you today.  We actually took this picture at our home in SL and the amazing Polly Elan edited it!  We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome.

In this picture we used a new pose at The Men’s Dept, made by the fabulous Luna Jubilee at !bang poses.  It fit the mood, the look, and the picture!  Love it!  Such a soft sweet pose.

I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend.  If you want to know what Bray is wearing you can go visit his post HERE!

Also there’s a new event on the grid called Winter Trend SL!  It started yesterday and lasts til December 13th.  You can find lots of warm cozy designs perfect for the season!  This adorable sweater from Suicidal Unborn is one of the great designs you go get.  It comes with a texture HUD with different colors so you can find the one you love the best.
