Monday Blues

Monday again, where did the weekend go, I know it arrived, I know I enjoyed it thoroughly but yet there it was gone again lol.   Back to the grind again, and it’s the start of a new month tomorrow, another month full of possibilities so really are Monday blues so bad, yet it’s something most of us suffer from but doesn’t that just mean we’ve enjoyed our weekend off, well it usually does for me and this week is no exception.

Today’s outfit is one I saw and thought it totally sofisicated and classy its by Belle Epoque and available at Tres Chic, the hair is by NO.MATCH at The Liaison Collaborative and the Backdrop is one of the set by Diamandis which is Gacha at Shiny Shabby.

Happy Monday Everyone ♥

Rainy Days

I don’t know if it’s due to my being from the UK where we have lots of rain but I truly am a lover of the rain, I love watching it, listening to it, even being out in it if dressed right, I also love Thunderstorms when your all tucked up inside cosy and warm.  The pose I got recently from Raindale which is the Umbrella pose gave me great delight in dressing in my new favourite warm Autumn outfit by Zenith which is available at this months C88 and taking myself off to Rainy Alley.   I loved it, listening to the rain while taking a picture was really soothing and peaceful.  Does that make me crazy?   Maybe just a little lol.

Have a great day everyone ♥

Life is like a Merry go round

Ever have that feeling your life is like a Merry go round or to some it may be called a Carousel, spinning and spinning and you never seem to be able to get off lol well yes that’s my current feeling.   I am not even saying it’s a bad thing, it’s just a case of life grabs hold of you in more ways than one and sometimes you just need to take a breath, exhale and relax, which funny enough is what I just did while typing this out lol.

End of the year is approaching quickly and not only is Winter on its way soon, so is Christmas and for such a Christmas lover I’m already getting the giddy feeling knowing it will soon be in that season, I know I know some of you will be sighing and hating on me right now lol but this is just beginning for this Christmas Addict lol

Todays post was a cosy at home post in my new Autumn outfit by Kaithleen I purchased recently at The Chapter Four Event, hair is by Entwined available at Shiny Shabby and the gorgeous Décor I decorated another part of my house with is the Larimer set by Raindale.   This was my little bit of “Me” time today doing something I love.

Have a great day everyone ♥

When you have nothing to say then say nothing at all, and that’s why I will spare you my normal ramblings today as I am in a kind of blank mind space right now so why ramble for the sake of it right?

Instead I will just let you know about today’s outfit.  The Leggings are by the awesome Noir Neige store and come with a hud to change colours, as black is one of my favourite colours to wear that was todays choice, accompanying it is the Erratic Sports bra, very creative Tattoo by Arabic Tattoos which is one of my favourites I must admit and the Boots which by the way are totally kick ass are by NoName also with a colour changing hud.  Another fun one to create as its not normal for me to look so badass but hey I am totally getting into this look lately lol.

Happy Friday Everyone ♥

I finally got home from work, I’m posting this and then I need to start packing as soon as possible. I need to be at the airport in a few hours and even though I’m a Virgo (insanely organized, neat and with huge OCD issues) I still manage to make a mess out of everything and almost always, be late. To prove my point, right now, my bed is covered with clothes and things I want to take with me. I don’t know how you all pack your luggage, but what I do is very simple. Take everything out of the closet, then staring at them for a few minutes and then throwing them all in the suitcase. Of course folded and according to color. That should take me a couple of hours at least. Then I need to make the standard passport/wallet/I.D. and things-you-must-not-forget check and I’m good to go. Of course, as soon as I’m in the car, I start wondering if I packed this and that, driving myself crazy, until I reach the airport and realize that it’s now too late to go back and check. Yes, I told you I have issues…! He he.

The past three days I made 6-7 pictures as I wanted to show everything before I leave for Paris. It exhausted me though. I can’t say I’m not relieved that I will put the camera down and won’t go online for a few days. Will I miss this? Hell yeah, but right now I think my mind needs to rest. I know I will be back before I realize and vacation days usually come by dramatically fast, but I don’t care. Even being at the airport excites me. The love I have for airports is another issue which we can dwell on another post.

So bottom line is, I’ll be gone for a few days but please know that I will think about you all …(well probably not, but can you blame me? It’s Paris! lol). I can relax knowing that my beautiful, awesome bestie Jules will keep the blog busy with her amazing posts anyways.

So, a few words for this picture are needed. My main goal for this one was to showcase the beautiful creations by my friend THOR for the Shiny Shabby round. What amazes me most about THOR is the fact that, even though I’m not a decor blogger, he still treats me like I am and in fact, a very good one. That makes me want to work harder on his products and make him proud. Also, I love how easily it is to coordinate his designs with others and make a beautiful scene in only a few minutes. Of course I had the help of my friend Cocolinox Decuir once again. No need to ramble any more, you can have a better look at the rest of the stuff in the credits below!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and see you all soon! Until then be well and kind to one another…

Daydreaming…

Some days when you’ve been busy it’s nice to just sit and relax, have some coffee, listen to some music and let your mind wander.   Today I have a free day finally so I am doing just that whilst also taking time to catch up on everything like flickr, facebook etc.   I have come to realise recently this is not a race, it’s most definitely not a competition (well at least it’s not for me) lol it’s all about enjoying what you do, not stressing about the small things, and that is exactly what I am doing.   As long as I do my best, I treat others as I wish to be treated and I enjoy life I am a happy girlie.

Today’s outfit totally fitted my relaxed mood, it’s a gorgeous comfortable sweater and Jeans by the awesome #bubbles designer Candi, not only is she one of my sponsors but someone who I class as a friend.  She is always so lovely and encouraging, supportive and appreciative and she always wants to do her best by her customers, that to me is precious in a designer.

The sweater is available as individual colours but also as a fatpack too which comes with a HUD for a choice of 8 colours, the Jeans come in 3 choices of Denims.   She knew I would love this one lol as comfy wear is totally me.

Have a great day everyone ♥

Lorena

Another coincidental image. I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about mesh heads is trying appliers on them. Whatever the mesh head looks like, it can change significantly with certain appliers. Yes the shape remains, but the brows, the facial angles, the chin and cheeks, everything is affected. So this was the case in this picture too. I was trying on appliers when I finally found the one I loved for this head.

This is the new Genesis Lab mesh head at the Epiphany. Lorena her name and gacha rare. I spent almost an hour trying on different appliers on her. She’s version 2.0 which means almost every Genesis applier, works on her. My recommendations would be Daphne, Bianca, Nelly, Kiara and Giorgia. It’s a beautiful head with much smaller eyes than the previous Genesis heads. Also, there’s been released a video today of the new Bento Genesis Lab head, Eva (named after me maybe? ha ha) still work in progress but you can see many new features of the new Version 3.0 heads.

That’s all for now everyone! Have a nice day/evening and see you all soon.

You’ve probably noticed that it has been a very productive week for me. No, nothing’s changed, I’m still busy with work and everything in RL and my life is still a mess, but I’m planning on leaving in a couple of days so I had to hurry up and show you all some stuff before I leave. I’m going to Paris on Friday. God knows when it was the last time I was on vacation, I have been working non-stop for so long, I don’t even remember what it’s like to just sit down and do nothing. It’s not going to be a long hiatus, but hey, it’s Paris, so I can’t complain.

So, back to the stuff! One of the new releases I wanted you all to see, is the new skin applier from itGirls. I’ve recently started to work with Annie Jolifaunt, owner and designer of itGirls and you have to take my word for it: She’s a wonderful person! We’ve chatted for a while and had so much fun getting to know each other. It’s always amazing to see great and talented designers like her, being so humble and down-to-earth. Anyways, she released a new skin applier for Catwa heads, named Cleo and available in 5 tones. She has a store in-world but you can also check out demos and make purchases through the marketplace. Check credits below for more landmarks and urls and the second picture for a better close-up peek.

The look I was going for in this picture was inspired by the Red Light District in Amsterdam. I figured I needed a display and sexy lingerie. Luckily Lybra took care of that with her new release at ROMP event. Bras and panties, available in 12 different colors and for Maitreya mesh body only. The fur is from Coco and the skirt is from Fawny for her Epiphany gacha release.

That’s all for now lovely people, have a nice day/night and see you all next time!

Checkmate

Time for some chess! I used to remember how to play chess – I never really loved it and I was horrible at it – but it has been so long since I last played that I’ve forgotten it completely. In Greek, we use the French expression “Roi Mat” instead of Checkmate. This was my idea for this picture. Queen threatens King, King loses, bows to the Queen and Queen takes King’s crown.

I have mentioned before how psyched I get when I’m given so unique and special creations to work with. This was the case here as well, as Evolove collaborated with Nunu skins and created a wonderful gacha for the Tres Chic event. Consists of 13 gachas (1 ultrarare, 3 rares and 9 commons), all very impressive. The concept is the obvious. Chess! So you get the chessboard, the beautifully designed Evolove poses for pawns and the detailed designed Nunu skins. Skins are compatible with your Catwa, Akeruka or any omega compatible mesh heads and your Belleza, Maitreya, Slink or any omega compatible mesh female bodies (same appliers for the gents, but it’s also compatible with the Adam mesh body). You can have a better look at the gacha key here.

That’s all for now, I’ll see you all next time!

Have a nice day and be kind to one another.

Cookie

Cookie is a word that always sounded funny to my ears. Cookies are also delicious. I’ve been to London many times and if you have been as well, you’ve probably tasted the notorious Ben’s Cookies. That store on Oxford street in particular, probably remembers me still, after they sold out in one day. Last time I was there, I bought probably 100 of them and I came back to Greece giving those cookies to every person I know, simply because everyone has to taste them. I have been demanding for some Ben’s cookies from  Jules, since she’s in the UK, but my demand still hasn’t been fulfilled! I still have hope though! If you’re reading this and you’re British or live in the UK, please contact me for details and shipping info. He he…

The Annex participates in this round of Tres Chic with lingerie. It’s bras and panties, available for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies. There are four different textures for you to choose from, Cookie being the one I’m wearing in the picture. The socks are the exclusive item from Fri.Day for the Epiphany event and hair is from Rezology. Rezology will soon release mesh heads and I’m super excited about that. Last but not least, the skin applier is a new release from itGirls. Her name is Cleo, available for your Catwa heads only and she is gorgeous.

That would be all for now, see you all next time! Until then, be well and kind to one another.
