TIME FOR ANOTHER JOLLY GOOD READ

A few weeks ago I blogged some cracking reads for you all.  Well, it’s a cold weekend in November, so if you ask me it’s time to settle down again for a nice relaxing read, although to be honest, the first read will probably have you hot under the collar! I’m talking about the latest edition of L’HOMME MAGAZINE To be honest this HAS to be one of the best Second Life magazines out there; every page is just utterly sumptuous and the styling, editing and photography are second to none. It makes no difference if you aren’t a male avatar either, or have no association with one, just open the magazine and enjoy every single frame. It is absolutely delicious. (Also, page 20,  Hikaru Enimo, that’s all I’m saying..OOF!) Tuck a bib into your collar, this is indeed a droolworthy read!

Hope you have a cup of tea and a pile of digestives to enjoy as you flick through the pages of the latest edition of THE BEST OF SECOND LIFE MAGAZINE. As usual it’s choc-full of fabulous articles and images, with a great feature this month about SL Media, including SL Live Radio (which I knew nothing about until I started reading, and now I’m happily listening to the stream in real life as I dunk biscuits and flick pages!). Just like L’HOMME you’ll find some stunning imagery too, none more so than on pages 50-61, where there’s a feature article about nudity in-world. Last but not least I really love the interiors article from Arya Braveheart which features a beautiful rural English abode.  It reminded me of some houses close-by to where I live in RL (but alas, could never afford! The joys of the virtual world eh?) (In case you were wondering, I did try to embed BOSL on this page but it didn’t want to play nice, so just follow the link instead to enjoy:)

A Jolly Good Read

I was going to write an EPIC blog-post tonight of such absolutely gargantuan proportions that it would have become known as  ‘..the best blog post ever written about Second Life..’

Unfortunately, I am way too tired to achieve this epic feat that would surely have bagged me metaversal fortune and glory.

My left eyeball is doing that strange twitching thing it insists on doing when I need my bed, and my right eye is practically asleep of its own accord.  Fortunately, I can retire early and take some quality Second Life reading material up to Bedfordshire with me. I have two selections to share with you..

My first choice is the latest edition of STYLE KINGDOM.  This esteemed publication is celebrating its second anniversary, and the issue is absolutely bursting at the virtual seams with awesome. There’s so much work that has gone into producing this magazine with sensational photography on practically every page. I am really taken with the Fall fashion feature, beginning on page 45, which showcases some fabulous must-have items for both genders. It’s a really excellent collection of practical and stylish pieces, and is sure to make you hungry for virtual shopping. If you’re looking for style inspiration you’ll find it within these pages for sure.

The October edition of FUSION magazine is out now too, featuring a child avatar, Saddie Hurricane, on the cover. I think this could be a first for one of the more well-known magazines, and it’s good to see.  I enjoy the Halloween theme of the magazine, and it showcases some of the most popular Halloween haunts (excuse the pun!) that have been created in-world this year.  There’s a great photo review of Havenhollow, which offered all the fun of trick or treating without having to step outside into cold, dark reality. (It also provided some exceptional scares too, and has to be one of the most fun things that I’ve experienced In Second Life!) I also really like the Fall Living Room created for FUSION by Britain Knave. Check out the living room image featured on pages 58/59 and tell me that you wouldn’t want to be snuggled up there!

Right, pass me my cocoa. I’ve got my PJ’s on and I’m snuggled under the duvet ready to enjoy a relaxing read. Wanna join me?
