Yamas

2016 Lessons

Work never ends. Will always be there, no matter how much you try to get rid of it.

Money doesn’t buy happiness but definitely helps you find it.

When you have faith, anything is possible.

People can actually be nice to you for no hidden reason.

This is a damaged world I live in but there is still hope.

True friends can be more important than family.

2017 Resolutions

Take care of myself. Sleep and eat more, worry and stress less.

Catch up on my dancing. Been so long I wonder if I fit in my pointes.

Remind my loved ones of how important they are to me.

Work to live, don’t live to work.

Dare and make mistakes. Won’t learn otherwise.

Never take anything for granted.

Having that said I’m officially bound by my promise. One year from now, you have every right to ask me if I kept my word. Until then I have to show you some stuff, and since this is my last post for the year 2016, it had to be celebratory. Evolove gave me the perfect opportunity to do so with their release for Tres Chic. Their newest creation is a champagne glass (there is actually one big prop one and a smaller one for you to hold) which includes 20 poses in, out and around the glass. So, for a change, I put on some of my favorite designs from the year and hopped on the glass to wish you all Happy New Year!

On a quick note, the bra is from Dead Dollz, gacha rare, but no longer for sale unfortunately. The shorts are from Tee*fy from an old Collabor88 round, so I guess they can be found in the mainstore now. The shoes are probably one of the first I bought since I joined SL in February, from fri.day and the necklace is from Modern Couture, again, one of my first purchases. The hair is December’s group gift from Truth. There is a fee to join the group, but it’s totally worth it. You get (at least) a free fatpack every month! Skin applier is from ItGirls, for Catwa heads only and gorgeous as always.

That would be all for now lovely people. I hope you all have a wonderful day today. Whatever you do, however you spend it, remember that you’re all special and important. Never lose your smile, never give up and pat your shoulder for everything you’ve accomplished so far. It’s been a rough year for everyone but hey, we made it through, we’re all winners and survivors! So since I’m on my first glass of Champagne already, I say yamas (that’s Greek for cheers) to everything that happened and yamas to everything that’s coming next. Happy new year with lots of love, smiles and hugs!

Ava

The days before New Year’s have proved to be hectic. Work is crazy, I’m so behind on everything I’m supposed to do before Saturday, yet my will to take/make/post pictures never stops. I guess it’s some kind of therapy during the stressful times and as long as it’s not becoming a chore, I’m not planning to stop. That probably explains my constant blogging lately although I could use a few more hours of sleep. Otherwise I will need tons of make up on Saturday night. He he.

lybra-3-new

This post features Lybra’s new release for Shiny Shabby. It’s a corset with panties, both can be worn separately, for Maitreya mesh body only and in twelve colors. The skirt can be removed too. Very pretty. Gloves are from Just Design and can be found at Uber.

So are the mask and lipsticks for the new Genesis Lab bento head. I’m really liking this head and the shapes I’ve created with it. Pumec has made a skin applier for it and it’s currently at Tres Chic which includes shape for the head as well. Try a demo and see for yourselves.

Last but not least, the tattoo is from Speakeasy, gacha, at the Fantasy Collective. Many options there to meet all styles. That would be all for now lovely people. Have a nice day/night and be kind to one another.

I guess this is one of the moments when you’re supposed to say “It’s not what it looks like” but that is not the case with this picture. He he. Don’t judge!

First of all,  isn’t creativity, part of being a blogger? Coming up with new, mainstream ideas in order to showcase specific products etc? Second of all, I’m a big girl and my dad doesn’t read my blog so I can get away with it unless one of you tells him!

So, ladies focus on the shorts that perfectly cover the buttocks and the boots that so sexily caress the legs. They are new releases from Addams, found at the mainstore and as always, you can find them in many different colors and they can fit all your mesh bodies. You could also focus on the hot man in the picture, Jake, who has willingly dropped his pants for the picture. Yes, he’s single – not sure if he’s looking – but you never know. Thank you for the help hunni.

The top is a scarf, beautifully wrapped around the body from Vinyl at current round of Uber. Tattoo is a limited release from Speakeasy, started with 150 copies, so you might want to hurry before it runs out. The pose is from Exposeur, which is, without a doubt, one of my favorite pose and prop stores in the grid.

That would be all for now. Have a nice day/night and be kind to one another.

Month is about to end and so are a bunch of events on SL. We Love Roleplay is one of them, so I wanted you to see a couple more of the releases before the round ends. The event will skip January round so we will all have to wait until February to get brand new stuff.

N-uno is one of the stores participating regularly for the last couple of rounds. In this one, with a dress and a jacket. An lar poses too with a set of very picturesque poses. The leggings are a new release from Blueberry and a gift from my friend Ninna for Christmas. Thank you so much, they are as sexy as you!

Corky

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I surely had a good one. Spent the day with family and friends, I ate and drank a lot and managed to catch up on my sleep too. Mission accomplished so far. I’m back to work tomorrow but I do feel better.

Since it’s the holidays I had to make this quick post for you all to see, in case you’re trying to find gifts for your friends. Giftcards are always a great option but THOR made a game that is worth having a look at.

You can buy it in the marketplace as well, but THOR has rezzed it at the entrance of his mainstore so you can all demo it.

corky

So here’s how it works (copying THOR’S Notecard):

  1. Rez the Set On Ground (total prim with the Bricks Wall 7 Prims Land Impact  / 3 prims without the Wall)
  2. Mandatory to play the Game are:
    a)..::THOR::.. Pop Corky Game (Giver)
    b)..::THOR::.. Pop Corky Game (Barrel)
  3. Touch the Giver to deliver the Thrower [ ..::THOR::.. Bottle Cap Thrower (wear-me!) ]
  4. Accept it and wear as is or add it (worn on right hand)
  5. Once worn the system will log you automatically to the Game Server, the chat will announce the login.
  6. You have two Game Modes, you can select these clicking the barrel, touching the barrel will display a menu:
    a)Wild Mode: no turns, just throw the corks, the first player that reaches the target point wins.
    b)Turns Mode : Starting from the 1st logged player all player will throw and following the login order. The 1st player that at the end of the turns reaches the target point wins.
  7. Hover Text on the barrel will display the player points and turn.
  8. Go Mouselook and hold left mouse button to charge throw power. Min Power is 1, Max power is 12. Avatar will play a “charge” animation, point the Crosshair in the desired position, Avatar arms will be in “aiming position”, Upon the right hand you will see the |||||||||||| increasing till the maximum allowed (12). Of course you can release the hold before it reaches the Max to launch the corks at lower speed. Once the left mouse button is release, the avatar will play a throw animation, throwing the cork. While flying the cork will leave a trail (it will vanish in 7 seconds) to allow the players to see the  the ballistic trajectory, and adjust the aim in the following shots.
    //////////////////  Other Options  //////////////////
    1. Touch the Barrel for menu (just logged player will be able to display a menu)
    a) Select the Target Hit Point : 50 or 100
    b) Select : Reset to Reset the game
    (Game will store anyway the game mode set in his long term memory)

Hope you like it and have fun!
