Memories

How quickly a year has passed. But even though it’s been a year since I saw M. in RL, memories live for as long as you want them to and mine from January 2020 are just as vivid as if they happened yesterday. I’m extremely grateful for being able to make memories together with M. every day even though we’re 3800 miles apart. Hopefully soon we can again make new ones in real life too.

B-Made is participating in the upcoming round of Shiny Shabby, starting today, with the Cracked Boat and the Rusty Lighthouse. The boat scene is 97 Li and the lighthouse is 27 Li. Both are Copy / Modify.

The outfit I’m wearing can be found in its entirety at the Hoorenbeek mainstore. Bomber jacket, t-shirt, ripped slim-fit jeans, Patagonia boots and Wayfarer glasses (not shown) are all included in the Hoorenbeek NG Tad Outfit. The outfit is compatible with Belleza Jake (shown on me), Legacy, Signature Gianni and Geralt and SLink male mesh bodies and Classic avatars.

The pose is called ‘The Memories’ and is a new release by Tribal Tuesday. Includes Poseball, single animation, Cigar, Cigarette and Camera and an “easy-fit notecard” to help get the perfect look.

When Life Gives You Lemons…

I was almost going to say I can’t remember the last time I drank tequila, it’s been so long. The truth is I do remember. The when and the circumstance but one tequila, two tequila, three tequila and I guess it went the way that sign in the background says, I can’t remember how I got home and I haven’t had a single shot since 😅

No. 59 is releasing this beautiful display of Tequila with tray for this upcoming round of Equal10 which starts tomorrow January 10th. This tequila display also works as a dispenser for you and your guests, with or without Experience (add the Caroline Planer experience to your land) it will give out drinkable Bento animated shots upon Touch!

I’m wearing the Essential T-Shirt from Treized Designs. All guys need one essential t-shirt but if you buy the fatpack you get 18 different shirts/textures! The Essential T-Shirt is compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Belleza Jake and Signature Gianni mesh bodies.

To Another Year Around The Sun

Cheers! It’s my birthday! And almost at the same time, 2020 is over and done with and we’ve celebrated entering the new year with great hope that 2021 will be the year we rid the world of the coronavirus pandemic. While the pandemic certainly put a damper on the overall mood throughout 2020, it was a good year for me personally. And just like last year, I can again say that I survived another year with all my hopes and dreams for the future intact. Cheers to that! Now I want to recap the year in Second Life. If you’re here for today’s blog details only, start scrolling! 😉

Blogging

During 2020 I’ve expanded my blog with several new sponsors, both Home & Garden and Fashion creators and I’m very pleased about the content I’m producing now, both quantity and quality. Because of the expansion I’m at a point now where I have to watch closely not to take on too much because I don’t want the quality to suffer. I’m open to feedback, so if there’s anything in particular you really like or something you dislike and you think I could do better, leave me a message!

Sander’s 2K Photo Contest

I reached 2000 followers on Flickr in February and celebrated with a photo contest just like I did when I reached the 1000 mark. The Stars on the Silver Screen contest was a great success. This time we limited the amount of entries per person to two but we still received double the total amount of entries. My blog sponsors were awesome as always and gave away $L30.000 in gift cards and prizes! We rolled out the red carpet and celebrated the winners like proper movie stars and pampered all the contestants with each their gift bag full of amazing items. I received so much good feedback I decided to do another contest when I reached 3000 followers. Now, some of you might have noticed, hey Sander… You have 3400 followers now and had no contest?? Yup, you’re right and here’s why..

The Bar and a new sim to call our own!

Mahogany and I got tired of renting land and since we need so much of it we decided to purchase a private region so in April we closed The Bar and moved. I spent spring and early summer doing a lot of terraforming and landscaping then real life interfered, I moved house and responsibilities changed and I had to pause the work on the region. Since I want my next photo contest to be held here, I put that on hold too. I’m happy to say I’ve been able to pick it up again lately and that we’ll be able to open the region to the public very soon and also be able to host a photo contest.

To all my amazing sponsors, blog readers, Flickr followers and random shoppers; thank you for the old and many blessings to you and yours in this new year. Cheers! Go out there and be awesome!
M… Thank you for being you. You make both my lives truly amazing. You are amazing.

A Quiet Celebration

You know, I don’t care much about partying and fireworks. My perfect RL New Years Eve is a quiet one. Why? Because my puppies are scared of fireworks. So many dogs and cats are scared on New Years Eve but with this as with so many other things, people are selfish and inconsiderate. Also, alcohol and fireworks is a bad combination. I’m sure doctors have better things to do than to patch up someone’s mangled hand after they held the fireworks when showing off. Also, I think fireworks is a huge waste of money.

Find your Japanese Raw Dorayaki sweets at this round of Kustom9 where Cinoe offers the Year-end discourse. Not only decorative food and drink, it also dispenses bento animated food/drink for you and your guests.

BONDI is at Cosmopolitan with the Party Headphones – Unisex, comes in lots of different colors and a HUD packed with customization options. Resize menu upon Touch.
