Addicted to Mesh

Good morning peeps! In case you were wondering how you’re going to spend your warm August days, here’s an idea: Mesh Body Addicts Fair. It’s back for the third time and promises to be amazing. I have been on SL for a year and a half so I’ve only been to the Fair last year but I still remember how much money I had spent there. The Fair opens on August 1st so you have a couple of days left to save up some money. If you love everything for Mesh Bodies and/or Mesh Heads… this is definitely the event for YOU!!!

MBA FAIR 2017 SIM

The unfamiliar host

As you have probably noticed, I have started to create my own scenes for my pictures. It’s been probably a month that I have been doing so and I’m enjoying it so much. I started to do that because I was experiencing issues at sims. Apart from the fact that I like my privacy when I’m working and usually at the sims I would go to, someone would photobomb my pictures, my computer and graphics card wouldn’t allow me to take snapshots on ultra graphics and would eventually make me crash constantly. So finally, my gacha machines obsession, found its purpose. Ever since I’ve been a SL resident, I would always play decor gacha machines, even if it was stuff that didn’t look interesting or necessary to me. I would collect random pieces from each machine and store, because “one day I might need them”. Then, as soon as the opportunity came, I would put them all together to make something beautiful. Hopefully, I have succeeded in most cases.

The process usually takes me a couple of hours. Depending on how big my scene is going to be, plus, how many items I’m featuring in one picture. But trust me, it feels so good. Kind of like a puzzle game where you’re given different items and you have to make them all look like they belong together. Makes you become resourceful and come up with ideas that you would have never thought about before. Plus, it helps you grow. I mean, if you’re a blogger, why not start to work with items out of your style too and challenge yourself with something new?

As soon as my scene is ready, I take a small break and then try to think about where I am going to be in it. My goal is consistency. If it’s a kitchen, you don’t want to be in a gown. If it’s a beach you don’t want to be in lingerie. If colors match too, would be perfect.

So, enough rambling for one night. This post features a bunch of new releases, mostly decor stuff. I know the list of credits is super long, but come on. Given the amount of time I spent to create this scene, plus, writing all credits down and linking them to urls, you owe me to at least have a look. He he!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and see you all next time.

Worry less, smile more

The title says it all, I see so many people worrying lately about this and that, I too have my moments for sure, none of us is perfect, who wants to be perfect anyway, I know I certainly don’t, perfection is an opinion, what is perfect for one isn’t for another and so on, it’s also a lot to live upto and life is to short to worry, so yes live for today, worry about tomorrow when it arrives.  Worry less and smile more believe me it leaves you in a whole different frame of mind.   Worrying solves nothing at the end of the day, I just want to focus on enjoying life, taking the good and enjoying it and chalking the bad up to experiences to learn from.

Today’s post was a relaxing one to make, the cute sweater from #bubbles is Novembers group gift so be sure to grab it while you can and while there check out her other amazing clothes, the boots I loved from Noir Neige they are totally kick ass and come with a hud to change colours, the relaxed pose is by darling poses and the décor surrounding me is by Q Essentials and Raindale with the cute puppies by Black Bantam and Jian, so adorable.

Have a great day everyone ♥

“Home is not a place, it’s a feeling”

I moved house/land at the weekend much to my fiancé’s dismay lol but I have promised this is the last time and that I just wanted somewhere cosy and where it feels like home.  Home to me feels comfy and cosy and where I can just relax and chill out.  Waking up to such a beautiful place made me want to slip on my gorgeous, summery Dead Dollz Dixie outfit and sit outside, coffee in hand just relaxing in the surroundings and yes I finally felt like “Home”  So I figured why not share with you, enjoy 🙂
