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

His Pretty Girl

His Pretty GirlHappy Hump Day everyone! I hope everyone is having yet another great week!  It’s halfway over so only a few more days til the weekend.

Yeeeehawwww!  I’m so super excited about this post because I found some fabulous new things just to fit my Southern Style (considering I’m from the South hehe).

First of all though, I have some WAY exciting news.  Filthy has reopened and has released a new skin!  I tried on the demo and I was like “OMG I have to have this”.  It’s called Alicia.  Go grab the demos and try it for yourself because I promise after you put it on you’re not going to want to take it off!

Truth released this new hair called Jill!  And omg the cowgirl hat was just the topping to the cake.  I LOVE IT!  It comes with the hat on the hair and you can change the color with a HUD.  Definitely worth trying oout!  So go do it!

Oh and I found these really cute mesh shorts from Redgrave that fit perfect for the look I was going for!  MUST GET THESE!

You can’t complete a blog post without a pose.  Well miss RubyStarlight Writer from Exposeur Poses made a new set of poses just for all the cowgirls out there!  It’s called Cowgirl up!  Yeehaww!  I love them!  I’m sure you’ll see more posts from these poses =D.

I Hope everyone has a great rest of your day!

Scootin’ Around with Pinky


Sooooo it’s time to Bust Out of My Bubble a little and do a post with a newly found friend of mine, Ms. Pinky Villota.  Even though this was for a challenge, Pinky and I have found out we have a lot in common.  I mean for one we love the color pink.  And we just like to have fun!  And what is just too cool is that even though we hadn’t met in SL yet we kept bumping into each other =D.

Like for instance we were both chosen as bloggers for the Pose Fair this year so we were both shopping for new poses, and we were like you know what we should do our post with some of the awesomeness from the fair.  So I went home rezzed this adorable pink scooter, from Lost Angel Poses, which this one has friends poses on it, and said hey lets dress for Spring and snap some pics!  I let Pinky drive cause she told me she has a pink scooter in RL so I figured she’d probably be better at driving so I didn’t run us into a tree.

Credits will be included for both below =D!

I hope you all are having a lovely Thursday and you enjoy the post.

Happy Shopping!

StayGoooood morning lovelies!  *Yawns* It’s a beautiful day today.  You know why?  Cause you’re reading this and you’re still kickin!  Besides that, today the weather is supposed to be nice.  We can only hope right?  Maybe Spring time has actually arrived.  Before it’s too late,  I’d like to show you some things that you can run and get!

The Skin Fair ends in 3 days (sniffles).  I know I wish it lasted longer.  But that means you still have those 3 days to get down there and find that one skin you’ve been waiting for.  And while you’re there, you must stop by Essences.  Why?  Because this lovely skin called Clover is available just for you to purchase.  With many make up choices and tones you are bound to find your favorite one.  I truly love this one and it’s definitely one worth getting!  Afraid it might not look good on you?  Well you never know til you try it, so get down there!   Just do it!  =D

Oh also if you haven’t been down to The Boutique, you should definitely check it out.  While you’re there you can try out this new dress from Cracked Mirror.  Several colors to choose from and just too adorable!  I think it’s my new favorite dress!  You should try it too =D.

Have a beautiful Thursday!

HopeSkinneryHappy Hump Day lovelies!  I hope everyone is having a great first day of Spring.  I know I do wish it was warmer so it will feel more like Spring but I know it will be soon enough!  I want to show you some more from the Skin Fair today.  It’s been so busy lately I haven’t been able to sit down and enjoy all this greatness from the Skin Fair.  But today is the start!

This lovely skin from The Skinnery called Hope is something you don’t want to miss out on.  It is definitely an original and will keep you feeling beautiful.  Hope is available in 8 tone, honey shown here.  And it also is available in 3 different make ups: Bare Face, Casual, and Evening.  I’m kind of a natural girl most of the time so i’m wearing Bare Face today.

This is just one of the many skins, I would recommend trying out at the Skin Fair.  Lots of amazing skins for you skin lovers out there.  So get on down there and check em out!

Happy Shopping,

♥ Dani

Para Me

CrackedHello lovelies!  Happy Tuesday.  It’s been a great start to the week.  I have some more awesome stuff I’d like to show you today.

I’m super excited and amazing at this new Zara skin from Glam Affair.  It is available from now til the 31st at the Skin Fair.  This make up is just dazzling.  I adore the colors.  This is probably my favorite one out of the whole line =D.

I’m a little late but I didn’t want you to miss out on this very sexy Mesh dress made by Cracked Mirror.  It is available for this round of FaMESHed so you have like 12 more days to go get it!  There are other colors available so you can pick out your favorite.

I also picked up this lovely hair from Magika.  It’s not brand new but it’s new from the releases!  So it’s new!  Hehe.  And I’ve fallen in love with it.  I used to have my hair like this in RL and I’m on my way to having it this length again so I just absolutely adore it.  Go try it!  I bet you’ll like it too.

I hope everyone has a fabulous day and I will be back later for some more fun stuff!

Happy Shopping
