I first began my Second Life back in February 2004. Fell out of the sky, and was extremely proud of the outfit I created with the basic SL sliders and textures you can still find in the library today! I wandered around a bit, no TPing allowed, took a boat to where the ‘people’ were and found myself in the middle of a very small grid. SL didn’t stick with me right away, but it has a way of growing on you and becoming one of those important places in your life and heart.
Since then I have chosen a new name, started over once from being an Estate Manager to working for one of the top Estates within SL (Dream Seeker Estates which still works with some of the best people on the grid) and now back to just a simple player, exploring and blogging as I go. Through it all, I have always loved the beauty of the residents that create content here. I am no fashionista, or slebrity (been here longer than most of you though, which makes me an oldie if nothing else, ha!) nor am I some amazing photographer or photo editor.
So what am I? I am simply a girl, wandering the grid, loving her friends and living within my own Grand Illusion.
Grand Illusion, to me, is a great many things. A place to share my adventures within the grandest illusion I know, Second Life. Exploration, friends and loved ones and best of all, fashion and the addiction that is, shopping! I often spend most of my time in SL exploring these days, but I still find time for the fashion, for decorating and landscaping and the pure obsessive nature of it all.
