All the journeys…

“All journeys eventually end in the same place, Home”

Good morning world! Ever since I started blogging, I’ve had a hard time with many things. One of them, naming posts. It is never easy and I want it to be a nice, somewhat creative title instead of a #Post398 one. I also have a hard time with the image editing. You know, that feeling when you take a good shot or at least, a shot you’re happy with but then your edit skills are not good enough to actually help you make the image you’ve had on your mind. This is the case for me recently. I’ve managed to spend less time on taking the picture but way more time editing it. I constantly delete and re-edit because I’m never happy with the result. And guys…I can’t afford that.

I realize I often stare at my picture for way too long, wondering “What am I trying to prove? I’m not a Photoshop expert nor a graphics artist”, which also results in me hating it and eventually deleting it. I know I need to just chill and enjoy this but it’s easier to say than actually do.

This is the case with my picture today. 22769 released 2 gacha sets for the current round of the Arcade, beautiful and winter-y. I made a cute scene with them, took the picture last night and went to bed at 4am, only because I kept editing the image into something that I actually like. And actually, I still don’t.

Time pressure is a bitch though, which is why I often have to settle. When that happens, I just post the picture right away before I decide to delete and start all over again. Oh, and you know when people leave you comments to your pictures and you think “Wow, what do they see that I don’t?” Or some of the comments are “lovely picture”? I appreciate the love and support but every time I get a “lovely” comment it feels more like an “Okay, you’ve done better before” or “Okay, thank you”. But hey…it’s still nice that they leave one.

That was a bunch of my random thoughts this morning, sorry for the long ramble. Have a look below for all the details and have a good day!

Hello world and happy Wednesday. It’s a beautiful day today and I’m at work looking outside the window thinking of all the other things I’d rather be doing right now than actually work. I’m sorry but, I’m on vacation mode already. I don’t have anything new to share with you this morning so I’ll just skip to the stuff.

Today’s post features more goodies from the Arcade plus some new releases from Addams and [ keke ]. I pushed myself a little and tried to make as many Arcade posts as possible and show as many new releases as possible as I’m a bit worried that the closer we get to Christmas, the less time I’ll have to be inworld or even blog. So there you go. Have a look below for all the items used and good luck with those gacha machines!

Good morning and happy Monday! Ok, seriously, every time I use happy and Monday in the same sentence, I sigh. Those two don’t make sense together. Anyways, we’re getting closer to Christmas so the mood is getting better. Not because I love Christmas that much, no. Because I’ll get to have some days off from work. Have you made your plans yet? I haven’t even started decorating ! One problem at a time though.

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff from Tannenbaum and The Arcade. I mentioned yesterday all the important information you need to know about The Arcade, it opened last week and will stay open until the 31st. But, Tannenbaum will end on the 25th. So plan your shopping spree accordingly. You have to look at the credits below for every item used, it’s a long list, I know, sorry! Enjoy your shopping!

So much hiding in the greys

“Don’t define your world in black and white, because there’s so much hiding amongst the greys”

Good morning and happy Sunday everybody! I’m finally catching up with it all and here I am with an early morning Sunday post. I have so much to talk to you about but I’m afraid most of them will be complaints about my working for too many hours and how there’s no time left to do anything I want. So I’ll spare you the dramatic monologue and move on to the stuff!

Today’s post features new releases the can currently be found at the Arcade, Tannenbaum and Fameshed. You should spend a minute and have a look at all the credits below as there is everything listed beautifully. Speaking of the Arcade, in case you haven’t checked it already, here are the important links for this new round:

Good morning everybody. Happy Friday! I’m trying hard to catch up on everything but it’s a bit overwhelming. It has been a busy month so far. I’m pretty sure for all of us. Today’s post features more stuff from Uber and new releases from Addams and Haikei. Have a look at the credits below because I have to go to work and I’m already late, so I’ll  ramble later.

With a little bit of savage

Hello hello! I finally got the time to work on a blog post, a portrait in fact, since they’re faster to make. See, I didn’t say easier, I only said faster. Credits alone, it takes less time to work on a portrait than a whole scene.

Anyways, in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I’ll tell you…! I’ve been working on a project for the Holiday issue of Gallant magazine! I can’ share more details but I can only tell you that this issue especially, will be amazing. And I’m not saying that about my pictures of course. I mean overall. The team is amazing and the work everyone has put into it, very inspiring. Be patient and stay tuned, I will let you know more and blog about it, once it’s released!

So, now that, that project is done for me, it’s about time I went back to my posts. I figured I’d start with the newest skin applier ItGirls released for Catwa heads. Do you see some Jennifer Garner to it? Because I do! It’s a mainstore release where you can also grab the new eyeshadows that have been recently released as well. All information and landmarks are listed below so have fun!

Happiest goodbyes

Hello hello! I’m very, very happy to say goodbye to November, Finally! I don’t know about you, but the past couple of months had been the busiest months of my life. Ever. RL and SL. I feel exhausted, I feel worn out, I feel burnt out (ok, was I dramatic enough?) and I was definitely looking forward to December arriving – not because it will be less busy necessarily, but come on! It just has to! And today I’m living the dream! “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” and it is true! It’s still early to celebrate but I did wake up with a smile on my face today. Hope you as well!

Today’s post features more stuff from District 20. It’s a brand new monthly event which I blogged about here but in case you’re lazy like me and unwilling to go back to an older post of mine, here‘s their website with everything you need to know about it.

Hello peeps! So today it’s all about District 20! Have you gone to that event yet? It’s a new monthly event, opened on the 20th and will be open until the 18th of December. It is brought to you from the people responsible for Collabor88, Luxe Box, The Arcade and Prism Events, The Men’s Department, The Epiphany, The Fantasy Collective, Rewind and Blush! Was that not convincing? Maybe the concept of the event will convince you. Here’s how it works:

“District 20 is a monthly event that rewards customers for making purchases. 

When you purchase items marked as District 20 Exclusive at the event venue, you receive a points HUD.

With that HUD you will redeem points to your account. Once you accumulate a certain amount of points you can start to redeem them for gift cards and prizes from our District 20 participating brands. Subscribing to the District 20 VIP group every month will not only reward you with more points, but gives you access to shop early, a 5% discount off the District 20 Exclusive items, as well as access to giveaways, raffles and daily spins on our prize wheel.”

For more information and details on the event, check their website here.
