SLife categories include home & garden creators/stores/bloggers, texture/animations builders, wedding, breedables, gatcha, land companies/sims, roleplay and annual events.

My blog, gloriasilverstone.wordpress.com was honored to be among the nominees in the Favorite Home/Furniture/SLife Blog or Website category.  It is truly an honor and I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the last two years. To the wonderful kind-hearted folks who nominated me, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  This is an incredible joyous surprise!

Avi Choice Awards SLife BlogWhen I initially started blogging in 2012, I wanted to serve as a resource to SL residents in diverse arenas from fashion, to contests, to freebies, and events.  The SL platform allows for a great wealth of creativity and imagination.  I explored and evolved to expand my attention to interior design.  With the good fortune of blogging for monthly home & garden events, I met emerging interior design creators.  Utilizing my marketing background, my blog point of view developed to showcase California interior design styles transformed into virtual reality.

My love of interior design grew and I challenged myself each month to create a theme room/space that would appeal to my readers.  I researched trends, styles and designs, and crafted storylines to inspire my followers to “Let’s Get Decorating!”  I continue to evolve and strengthen with the myriad of interiors I create.  Below are a few selections of my stylings.

Thank you for nominating me, I would appreciate your vote.

Posted on Updated on

Join Hands for Nepal - MSS Black Dress & Vestige Poses - Natulous 1 (fr)

The time is now for the Second Life community to Join Hands for Nepal and help the survivors of the devastating April 25, 2015 earthquake.  At 11:56 NST a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck in the village of Barpark, Gorkha district, the worst natural disaster to occur in Nepal since 1934.  More than 8,000 people were killed and 19,000 injured.  The quake was felt in adjoining areas of India, China and Bangladesh, triggering an avalanche on Mount Everest (killing 19) and in Langtang valley (250 missing).  Aftershocks continue to rock the region, with one reaching 6.7 magnitude on April 26, 2015.  A second major earthquake hit a few days ago, on May 12, a 7.3 magnitude with an epicenter near the Chinese border between the captial of Kathmandu and Mt. Everest (80 killed and 2,000 injured).

Valsnia and Ruby Ornamental, Second Life top models and bloggers have come together to organize Join Hands for Nepal charity event benefitting Fashion for Food SL from May 13-16, 2015.  During the four-day event more than 40 designers have created exclusive event items with all the proceeds of the sale benefitting Fashion for Food SL.

Taxi to Join Hands for Nepal Charity Event please….

Event schedule is as follows:

  • Wednesday, May 13th, 2015, 14:00 SLT: Fashion Showcase by SCALA™ Models
  • Wednesday, May 13th through Saturday May 16th 2015: outfits and jewelry from the participating designers on sale throughout the region, with all proceeds going to the WFP

16772561624_273d032536_oFashion for Food SL is aimed at raising money which can be put towards the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP), which is focusing its efforts on bringing assistance and relief to the outlying regions of Nepal, allowing the government to coordinate efforts along the Kathmandu Valley.  The WFP estimating US $116.5 million is required to provide food for 1.4 million people for a period of three months – that’s US $27 per person per month.

Join Hands is largely organized by the Indian community in SL to support their neighbouring Nepal, with the event region being sponsored by Indian Paradise. The region has been designed to recreate an environment which has been shattered and an earthquake, offering something of a glimpse of the devastation wrought in Nepal.  The fashion show and events area are located towards the centre of the region, while paths winding around the region take visitors past the vendor boards which will be available throughout the fours days of the event.  Note that if you would prefer to donate to the WFP’s work directly, you can do so via their Nepal relief work page.
