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

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

Let’s Hear it for the Good Times

Let's Hear it for the Good Times

Ok so the holidays are over.  And now I’m so serious it’s back to blogging.  Being out of town for almost 3 weeks can really put you behind. I did have a great holiday and came back to some wonderful things but I was sad to go but glad to be back and getting back on track.  I have some new stuff to show you today yay!  Also my hubby and I are going to be working on a new project together and combining blogs so be on the look out for a move and a new awesome site!  A sneak peek can be found here.  Still a work in progress but it’s getting there!  Once Upon a Second Life  (Coming Soon to a blog near you….)

I am so excited and thrilled to say that Curio has finally released her new skins!  She released one called Ember, Penelope and Nadia.  And I just fell completely with this one I’m wearing called Penelope and I had to get the whole pack.  I know it’s a younger looking skin but I think it’s just darn adorable!  So if I were you, I’d get down there and try them out! The are first of many to come.

It seems there were so many new releases while I was gone.  And then when I get back there’s more!  This lovely new hair, called Snow from Truth is just a must have.  I’m so excited because it’s the same name as my display name in world!  It feels so special! So I had to show you and you must go try it too!

This cute cute cuteeeeee dress from Tee*fy is available in lots of color choices at Collabor88.  I was feeling a little tired of winter and decided to dress a little more for warm weather so I found this perfect dress! And since I love mint it was perfect!  There’s other colors available so go get your favorite.  Along with some other awesome deals!

And you can’t have a perfect outfit without the perfect shoes.  If you have the high version of the Slink feet, you wanna get these new Miranda heels made by at Collabor88.  There are several colors available and you can find the perfect one to match your outfit!

Happy shopping lovelies!

Guided By a Beating Heart

Guided By a Beating HeartHappy Tuesday lovelies!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  I was feeling like dressing up today so I got ready and thought where should I go.  So I moseyed on down to the Neva Sky Villi to take a pic because I felt like it fit my look!  And let me tell you what a GORGEOUS place.  If you have not been down there then go go go!

Today I have on another makeup from the new Glam Affair skin Vera.  Fabuullous skin.  My favorite part is well all of it!  So if you haven’t been down to demo it, you must!  It’s one of those skins you can’t live without =D.  Well at least in my opinion.

I felt like dressing up a bit so I found this lovely new mesh Sherry jacket from Rebel Hope, that called my name.  There are several colors available to choose from too so you can match it to any outfit!

Just so I could show off my legs and these fab new shoes from N-Core called Mambo at FaMESHed, I decided to add this cute flare skirt from u.f.o, that is available down at Collabor88 from this round.  You don’t have long to go get it for such a great price, so get down there before it’s too late.  Polka Dots are my favorite so this one fit perfectly!  I’m sure you can find your favorite one too.

Have a great day!

Happy Shopping,

My post today is in remembrance of this day 12 years ago.  It was a sad day for all of us as tragedy unfolded before our eyes.  But in the end we came together united as one.  And as we hope to always be.  I hope everyone has a lovely day today.  Peace be with you.

I’d spend it allllllllllllllll……………

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday evening!  I’m back to show you some more awesomeness stuffies for you to pick up.  I’m just in love with this skin from Belleza called Leila that I just keep coming back to it and putting it on!  You can get it too right now at Collabor88!  And there’s 4 different make ups to choose from.  You just won’t be able to get enough.

And Oh Em Gee!  This new mesh lingerie set from Mon Cheri is just what it is.  FABULOUS!  The fit is great, and you know what the most awesome part is?  It comes with a HUD so you can change to the design you want to!  Or you can mix match them.  You can change the panties, bra, and bow!  I’m loving this set so much right now.

What is any great lingerie set without heels?  Well ladies get your wallets and purses ready to run down to N-Core and get these amaaaaazing new heels called Sublime.  Right now this has got to be my favorite pair of shoes and I’m going to mix it with as many outfits as I can haha.  They are cute, sassy, and sexy all at the same time!

Go get your goodies!

Happy Shopping,

Happy Friday lovelies!  I told you I’d be seein you soon =D.  I’m back today to show you some more things you don’t want to live without!   First of all another FABULOUS skin that will be available in only 2 days at The Arcade!  Are you ready for this?  It’s another great skin from Glam Affair called Candy.  There are 4 rare ones you can get and 10 other beautiful skins.  I recommend getting the whole collection because you won’t be able to pick just one.

Second, I’d like to show you this new long mesh gown from Indyra Originals.  I love dresses, and I really love the simple style and design of this one called Minuet.  If you’re looking to get fancy or just dress up for the heck of it, go try out this dress.

I haven’t had a chance to blog this hair, but this is a newer release from Truth Hair!  I reallllly love this one too called Misty.  It looks like a style I would wear in RL.  Simple yet gorgeous.  And the headband is color changeable with a HUD so you can match it to your outfit.  Wear it with a pair of jeans, or dress it up like I did with a fancy dress.  Either way this hair is a must have.  So go try it!

The Way

I hope everyone has a good end to the week and is ready for the weekend!
