Beach chat

Neybah and Jule 1

I was wandering around Isle of Insatiables, a great naturist spot and community, located on a gorgeus island.. I like to walk and sunbath there, especially during RL winter, to warm up my heart and sit quietly on the sea shore (check a previous post of mine about that), or having meaningful conversations with the people who are regular here.
This time I randomly met my recent friend Jule, in her astonishing jewelry set, who was having  a walk on the beach too. We decided to take some pics together.. I wanted to do that, especially to share my newly found jewels’set by Zaara, which I’m really loving.
We were there enjoying the sweet breeze and keeping our feet into the warm tropical water of the island. Just the waves’ sound to make us company, and some birds flying high.
Sometimes life is just simple like that.

Escape into outer space (INSILICO)

Neybah at Insilico 1

I don’t know if it’s because of the previous shocking events, or maybe just because we all want sometimes some kind of breakaway. But this week I found myself wandering in biotech places, in control rooms, and landscapes both urban futuristic and sandy .. up to the surface of Mars. It was a friend of mine to let me know of the existence in Second Life of the regions of Insilico, a well known and huge area dedicated to the reconstruction of a “cyberpunk” reality and actually used for roleplaying, since many years. And that apparently would have to close down three days ago, on November 15th (after eight years!). For this with my friend I went to explore (he had visited there several times) and in some way to greet and say goodbye to this wonderful environment. In fact something has happened and Insilico is still online today, even though I could not say for how long. I really hope those sims  will be saved.. More info on the Insilico site here.

I know nothing about roleplaying (although a bit all SL is this, in some way). I’ve never been part of groups that do it systematically. But I loved the film Blade Runner and Ex Machina, and always feel a strong attraction to these future size not that far away, where basically you deepen and bring extreme stories that are already present in our daily reality. I also like the imagination with which they are played or imagined back in Second Life, and once again I remain fascinated by spaces and lights that builders have made to make us travel in another dimension like this.
I invite you to visit Insilico as soon as possible, and lose yourself in a future sometimes disturbing and sometimes poetic. And for my sport outfits with whom I find it so comfortable, as always the details below. I just wanna say here that I’m so happy with my Aibeat short hair, which I really love and that really I find it hard to change these days…

BONDS

Dancing at Bohannon Jungle's birthday

Last thursday night I went to a birthday party in SL, a surprise party actually. One of the owners of Bohannon Soul & Funk venue, Djungle, was celebrating that day an important personal birthday (a Real Life one), and the crew and friends from Bohannon organized a fresh new party for her, with the support of the great music of DJ Finn, another pillar of the club. It was fun, the company was delicious, the music – inspired mostly from the ’50s – was stellar. My friend Martin (seen from the back in the pic) came with me and had the opportunity to know many SL users coming from his home country, Germany. A lot of people stepped by, and Djungle seemed to be really happy of the surprise.. You can see her in all her astonishing elegance dancing right behind me in the picture, on a blue/red dress and red shoes..

I try to go often to listen to funk (my passion) at Bohannon, and this wasn’t a totally new thing for me, but after the party I found myself thinking once again to the strong links that people tie up through a someway total virtual social media like Second Life, where each one of us can’t help but take his/her own soul but also a “new” me, not necessarily the exact copy of the person we are in Real Life. But the bonds that people tighten in here never cease to amaze me, and they are perhaps the most beautiful and touching thing about my journey through this “metaverse”. It’s something we know, it’s also something been studied by people who deal with social relationships in the digital age. Nothing new.
But the feeling I had when I left the party (and the new location built only few hours before to house the celebration), that was new. I felt happy and proud to be part of all this. And to be able to enrich my life with so many new friends from all over the world. That’s it.

Wish you a good weekend, and below, as usual, some details about this outfit I really like (photo taken at Bohannon’s regular location)..

Care of my body.. (and the mind follows)

2016-10-13_023dt

Care. Care of my own body. And the mind.. follows.

Wandering around SL I discovered this gym that I really like. No too many body builders around, many different exercises to do, machines to use, there was also a coach online (a woman, and this is nice). Even some yoga poses!  Despite of some people around, no harassment or embarassing proposals (especially by men). I also met someone with whom it was interesting to talk. Very good..
I sweated and I got out of breath, I challenged my limits, but it was a healthy afternoon and at the end I felt really good. I also had the chance to try my brand new leggings by FLG, which I’m really loving. See you at Alpha Gym I hope, guys, let me know when you there.. We’ll have some training together.

My endless summer …

2016-09-30_002dt

I know that most of the SL blogposts at the moment have an autumn taste, based on orange, red and black hues.. and I know that in most part of the world is getting colder and summer is gone already, while Halloween is knocking at the door.
But we are in SL, and when I feel my first summer nostalgie I head to places like Las Arenas, and just lie down on the sand, playing with shells, sniffing the sea breeze and listening to the roaring sound of the waves, which are never tired to fondle the shore.
I can forget any problem, any R(eal) L(ife) tension there. I can stay there for hours.
My bikini still gives me a sense of freedom and lightness, bangles are clinking.
And when I spot the autumn rain gently tapping my RL window, I just return with my gaze to the monitor, inhaling the ocean scent, listening to the seagulls.
My endless summer is going on sweetly, in Second Life…

My uncovered [DJ] dream

Neybah djing

Ok.. my secret dream is uncovered.. being a DJ. When wandering around SL’s sims, sometimes I find some empty clubs and venues, and the DJ console and turntables are there, unused and silent. I glance furtively around, and if nobody is there I jump behind the DJ console and switch on everything I can.. Then I start to spin my dreams and beats all around..

If you want “to listen” to this picture, right now, just click this beautiful SoundCloud mix by the great DJ Naiki, dedicated to the Queen Erikah Badu (no extra words needed to describe her music, I swim happily in it anytime I can). Here:

 

I was not actually at a club here, but on a wooden platform on the wonderful sim of Pino, which always worth a visit. I place I love.
I was in my super relaxed fashion mood here, and you’ll find the details of my comfortable outfit down here as usual. The loose tanktop and the old weekenders (that I own since 2 years now.. ehe) give me a feeling of simple comfort that is perfect for me when wandering around alone inworld.
Can you hear the beat? Are you bouncing around in front of your keyboard? Let me know. Kisses from Neibah  ❤

1st of october, on the bridge at night

Hello… calm saturday here, good for some inventory cleaning (!) and a little walk around.. Some bloggers I follow gave the news about the Calas Galadhon’s NEVERLAND sim, opening.. today, first day of October! And specially designed for Halloween. I’m not a Halloween girl, actually, but the dreamy atmosphere, hiding something creepy probably and mysterious enough, together with some incredible light’s effects I loved, really caught my attention while seeing some early images taken by the bloggers (give a look at Kara’s blog, who I thank you, to get an idea, and to the new blogpost by Inara Pey).

Neybah at NEVERLAND

I went, but I won’t tell you here what I saw, I prefer that you discover it yourself.. I just can say that the place is amazing, and I give you here a couple of images, as I passed by up a really scary suspended bridge, holding the torch I picked up at the landing point.
I’m also wearing my new M*Motion Off Shoulder Sweater, and the super brand new Kathreena jewelry blue set from Captivating!, bought just before at Rock your Rack 2016, (50% of this purchase is due to the cancer’s fight organisations).
Outfit details down here as usual.
Happy Second Life’s October, guys, and good explorations..

COLORS #2: brown on brown (part 2)

Some more image to share again about brown on brown skins, pale colors, and …yep, my style maybe. Yesterday I went to The Looking Glass sim, an island full of colors and some surprising corners, where I am going sometime to practice tai-chi..

@ Looking Glass

I was with a friend and we waited for the light to fall before attempting a quick photoshooting, on a little cozy beach. Part of the light was coming from some incredible fireflies flying there, not afraid of us at all.
Here’s the result, aside with an image of another outfit I like so much, quite simple but with a great tank (actually beige, not brown) and a skirt (Idira) I really can’t stop loving. Details below, as usual..
Wish you a good fall day, a calm mood and a relaxing visit inworld if you there.

COLORS #1: brown on brown

It happens to me so many times inworld: people say that they love my skintone, and that it’s perfect for strong saturated colored dress.. It’s meant to be a compliment, and I usually smiles and thank people offering me their view about it. They probably right. But many times I find myself, while dressing, going in the exact opposite direction. It’s not only because I LOVE soft, light pastel colors. It’s also because that when I see something of the kind on black people (also RL), I find this really nice and charming.

Brown on brown skin

And I got a special passion for brown. And since when I started to wear “brown on brown”, I never stopped. Brown it’s such a warm, special, magical color, don’t you think? It smells of autumn and winter, more than summer, ok.. but maybe this statement too it’s just a usual bias. And I love to break preconceived ideas, hehe. Brown for me means protection, warmness, caresses, but it’s also a deep earth color, which brings life and vitality..
What are you experiences with brown while dressing? let me know please.. Or with brown as a color for your creativity, no matter what! I’ll be glad to hear. Have a wonderful sunday! Continue reading

Autumn blue (without any blue)

Kind of blue day today.. so I found myself walking through the hills and cabins at The Shire, wistful melancholic place. Really happy of my very new outfit. Just trying to understand better my little sadness, breathing into the fresh autumn breeze..
