Wow. It’s been a while, eh? Over a year, one cruise ship contract and now being the rip old age of 25, I’m back on dry (and virtual) land. I was musing how Second Life has been part of my life since I was 13 years old. That’s over 10 years! This world has been a part of my life for so long, and I’m sure so many of you will agree that it feels like home, no matter how much time you take away from it. Who I am in the real world today is partly because of experiences in this world, and the people I’ve met during my time in SL.
This look, and my new appearance is an ode to the very first friend I ever made in SL, who sadly passed away in RL many years ago. I think of her often, and I wanted to do this look to commemorate how I feel she would have wanted her avatar to look with all the advances SL has made recently… J.G, this is for you!
I am so excited to be back in SL, and I can’t wait to return to blogging. I’ve missed it very much!

Let us start with the bad news, shall we?
Today is going to be the last post I’m going to be doing for the next 7 months. I have finally been given a date for when I leave to work on a cruise liner as an Entertainment Staff member, and as such I shall be dedicating a lot of my time over the next 7 weeks to getting myself prepared emotionally as well as packing all my bits and pieces.
I just wanted to make this post today to thank all of you for having stuck with me over these past months whilst I found my feet and settled into blogging again. It was long overdue and I am extremely happy that my posting and images have been so well received from the Second Life community.
Now, whilst this sounds like a goodbye, it really isn’t! I shall be back. Albeit in 7 months, but I shall be back! I cannot wait to return and experience all of the fantastic releases that the creators on the grid will have dedicated hours to creating. Second Life will most definitely be a completely different place upon my return. That’s what I love about this virtual world. It’s always morphing and changing.
I shall see you all in May 2015! It’s been a blast.
Hello everyone, and welcome to autumnashdene.wordpress.com, my own little slice of the internet that I am thrilled to present to you all today!
To those of you who may not know of me through my Flickr or Plurk, I have recently retired my two previous blogs, FACETOFACE (a SL makeup blog) & STATURE (a fashion blog) in favour of creating a brand new online presence that will contain all types of blogging and photography, whatever their angle may be.
First and foremost, I am a photographer. Posts on here may be anything from a simple photoshopped image of a client (or myself!) through to a brand new makeup tutorial following the success of my ‘6 Steps to Glam’ post back in 2011, and fashion posts. I do not have the budget to blog frequently about upcoming or current releases, and so many of the posts you see here will be a fusion of items both old and new.
Feel free to browse the links and pages that I have laid out for you to look at. You can find information on my photography services, links to my social media sites as well as information regarding review copies and FAQ.
For now, it’s been a pleasure to welcome you to my blog, and I hope that you enjoy what I have in store for you!
– Autumn Ashdene.
