Bohemian days

So, I went to the Skin Fair press preview last night. As I expected, it’s huge. First of all I didn’t even know there are so many skin/make-up/tattoo stores on the grid. I was in a hurry and still spent an hour there to go through every one of them. Sadly there are a few stores missing from it but overall, it seems to be an amazing round. Second of all, prepare yourselves to shop a lot. Yes. If you manage to control yourselves and not spend a lot of money, you need to teach me how to do that as well. I will soon make a post featuring skins from it so I won’t share more until then.

addams

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff. The skin, eyes and ears I’m wearing are all new from PUMEC and currently at The Chapter Four. It’s gacha so you can get most of them with just a couple of pulls. The skin comes with a shape for Catwa’s Catya bento head as well but I have missed Dyana and I was so glad it works great on her too. Glasses are also from PUMEC but at The Crossroads. The hair is gorgeous, made by TRUTH and currently at Uber. The hat is optional if you don’t feel like wearing one.

Shorts are super sexy, by Addams and it’s a mainstore release. Available, as always, for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza mesh bodies and in many colors. Last but not least, the bracelet is by [ Hoorenbeek ] from a previous Kustom9 round but currently at their mainstore. It’s unisex, comes with a hud allowing you to change textures/colors and it’s fitted for your mesh bodies as well. Which is pretty cool, I always mess up when I have to edit jewellery to fit my body’s shape.

That’s all for now peeps. It seems like this is going to be another busy week for me so unfortunately I can’t stay and say more. I’ll see you all next time! Have a good one.

Glitter princess

I woke up feeling tired today. It might have to do with the fact that it’s Monday again. Or the fact that this weekend was…meh. Have you ever had a weekend when you have so many things to do but you end up feeling overwhelmed and doing absolutely nothing? It sucks when I think about it now. Kind of feels like a waste of time. I wanted to sleep more and I didn’t. I wanted to work on some pictures and I didn’t. The only thing I did was shop more. Because apparently there’s no day in the week or enough exhaustion in the world to keep me from doing that. He he.

keke1

Today’s post features stuff by [ keke ]. If you haven’t been at her store yet, you’re missing out. She creates beautiful things for home and garden and it’s impossible not to find something you’re going to use from them. Her latest releases have been rugs and glitter waterfalls, so if you’re a princess like me, you’re going to enjoy them. Have a look at the credits below for her mainstore’s SLurl and details for every item used in the picture.

The Love Potion

Sometimes I wish I could do magic. Do you remember the TV series, Charmed? I used to watch it all the time and pretend I’m a witch when no one was watching. Piper, the one that could freeze time was my favorite. Yes embarrassing, I know, but it’s the least embarrassing out of everything I have done in my life. Anyways, wouldn’t it be super cool if you could create potions for anything you’d wish for? I have a huge list of potions I would create and a “Love” one would be probably on the top 3. In most cases, love happens with certain potions, called Alcohol so maybe you can stick to that as well.

Oops, forgot it’s a Sunday and I’m not supposed to ramble so I’ll zip it. Quick mention to the 22769 goodies from Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Their gacha is called Alchemy and Science. You can have a look at the gacha here and the list of the items from the gacha in the credits below. The event was supposed to end on March 7th but it got extended so you still have time to check it out.

Muse of Spring

Good morning everyone! It’s the weekend finally and I’m excited. I have to work today sadly but I’m in a good mood. That never happens so I guess I need to enjoy this while it lasts. As you probably know, I never ramble in the weekends, giving you the chance to just see some pictures without my nonsense in between, but I need to make a quick mention to the stuff.

march-muse1

We Love RolePlay opens tonight. There are a bunch of new stuff there for you to get and I usually showcase more than one in my pictures but this time I will only show you one. There will be future posts about the others. The outfit is from Sweet Kajira and for Maitreya only. It comes with a tiara and armband as well. It’s designed in the right way for me to also show you the new tattoo from Nanika, currently at The Crossroads. Hair is from Tableau Vivant, from the Hairplay gacha at the Arcade.

march-muse

The scene is from 22769, also at the Arcade. It’s called Colors of Spring and consists of a lot of pretty stuff. Flower pots, pillows, lanterns, basically things you can use to decorate your garden or house, if you want to make it more colorful. Here is the gacha key for you to see.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a good day/night and I’ll see you all next time!

Happy Saturday…

The Paddington ladies

I have been doing a lot of collaborations lately and I have to admit, they’re fun! But they’re not easy to do. I’ve given this some thought and at least for me, when it comes to taking pictures there has to be one photographer who’s basically the boss. Yes I do like to boss people around, but that’s not what I mean in this case. If you want to make a specific picture, you imagine what everything is supposed to look like, don’t you? Where everything is going to be and which angle you’re going to shoot from so you can showcase some specific items or just because you like from a certain angle.

alt

Can you imagine what happens when you have someone else to pose with you so you have two people to worry about? In the first case you would have to only think about where you would be or how you’re going to pose in the certain frame but with two or more persons it gets more difficult. Difficult means challenge to me though, so YAY!

alt1

Hara and I have been discussing about making a picture together for quite some time now and I was really looking forward to it. We did team up with Jules and Chloe for the Spice Girls picture she made but when we both got our hands on the new sweater ALT by Truth released at the mainstore, we knew the time had arrived for just the two of us. All we needed was a nice concept and scene for it.

alt2

We met one evening and started working on the scene for a while. Changed it multiple times until we finally agreed. It was ready. Thank you for tolerating me dear Hara! I had a wonderful time!

The sweater is available for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies and you can choose from many different colors/textures. This project has been great opportunity for me to also show you once again the hair TRUTH released same day with this sweater. Beautiful, right?

alt3

Last but not least, the shoes are from friday, currently available at Kustom 9. If you haven’t heard by now, friday’s semi-annual sale began last night at midnight SLT and will end on March 10th. If you’re a shoe lover like me, you’ll enjoy it for sure.

That would be all for now. Have a lovely day/night and see you all soon

The briturn

Hello! Another collab…Yes, it’s me on the left and guess who’s down on the right…It is Julie! I thought you got it from the title. Briturn is the amalgamation of British and Return. You know, because Julie is British? And she’s back in my pictures? No? Not good? OK, moving on, it’s been so long since we last made a picture together and with everything going on for both of us in RL and SL, we had forgotten what our avatars look like. Good thing we’re both blogging so we can be informed in case something changes on us. Actually, it is harder for Jules, I change my looks all the time. But she can always tell it’s me by my good manners and quiet mouth. (OK, who laughed?)

friday

So, this post happened kinda by accident. We were hanging out, it was the weekend and figured, let’s take a picture for old times sake. But it was also a great opportunity to show you some of the stuff I’ve been meaning to show you. Let’s start with the shoes that are still at Collabor88 (I think event ends on the 6th, so hurry) by friday. Super cute. Then I also wanted to show this ball lounger chair by 22769. It’s very stylish and even though I’m not a decorator, architect or anything similar, I was very impressed with the design. It was actually featured at the Challenge of the Builders, which I have no idea what it is, but you can read here if you’re interested. It is at their mainstore now.

friday3

Also a quick mention to other decor stuff. [ keke ] is a store I have been shopping from for the past couple of months. She designs beautiful things, perfect for decorating and styling up a scene/room/house/garden/you-name-it. If you’ve been paying attention to my pictures, you’ve probably noticed I always add something from keke in the scenes I make. I will soon post another scene I made, mostly with keke creations so be patient. The rest of the decor is gacha from Concept at the current round of Shiny Shabby. Worth a visit for sure.

friday2

And I know, I’ve blogged it before and it’s gotten old but this skin is here to stay for a while. Pumec at Tres Chic for Lelutka heads. There, I was quick.

It’s still early in the morning and Jules is in the UK (2 hours behind me) so she’s probably still  having her beauty sleep while I’m writing this. By the time she wakes up I will be at work so I’ll update the post with a link to her blog as soon as I come back home tonight.

UPDATE: She has woken up! Visit here to see her credits and beautiful picture.

That’s all for now lovely ones. Have a nice day/night and be kind to one another.

Mask off

I had a client yell at me at work yesterday. Not just yelled at – at some point he was screaming at me, for about 30 minutes. Security had to actually come over and remove him from the premises. And the worst part is, he was completely right. Due to bad customer service, he got upset and totally snapped. But he had good reason to complain and lose it. Was that the right way to do so? No, of course not. I’m not one of those people that function well under yelling and pressure. It basically ruined the rest of the day for me, but it also got me thinking. Recognizing your mistakes, realizing and owning them, might be hard to do, but actually makes you a better person. Helps you learn from your mistakes and prevent you from repeating them. Day ended nicely. No one got fired, no one got hurt. Apart from my pride.

truth

What does this have to do with my post today? Absolutely nothing. But it’s a nice opportunity to send a message to those willing to receive one. It’s OK to make mistakes. We’re only human. It’s important to own up to them, make things right (if possible) and don’t repeat them though.

This round of Uber takes us to Tokyo. If you haven’t been yet (to Uber, not Japan) you should know that you will find lots of goodies from many stores, all Tokyo inspired. And for a person like me, that likes to constantly change looks and challenge herself with new themes, this round was amazing. Quick mention to: the hair, which is new from TRUTH, includes the mask but it’s optional to wear it. There are two hair releases from TRUTH actually, the second one I’ll show in another post. The skin applier is new from Genesis Lab. Comes with a shape for Eva bento head (could work on the Lena one as well, but I haven’t tried it personally so not sure what that would look like) and combined with the skin applier, it gives you a beautiful Asian face.

truth1

The shoes are also from this Uber round by friday. Lovely platforms available in many colors. For the scene I used MINIMAL’s release at the event. It’s 4 (or 5? – not sure) backdrops and not gacha for a change. You can actually buy them separately.

That would be all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another. Oh, and if you get yelled at today, try to make happy thoughts and breathe. Really helps!

Spring blow

The weather has been changing in Athens. We’ve had some rain and clouds but the temperature is getting higher and the sun is finally out again. And it looks like it’s here to stay for a while. It’s going to be March tomorrow, which means Spring is officially here. Now, I don’t know about you, but my mood depends on, a huge level, on the weather. Depends also on how much coffee I’ve had – I haven’t had any yet – I’m surprised I can even type right now.

tableau1

The Arcade is coming tomorrow as well. This post features the new hair Tableau Vivant participates in the event with. It’s editorial hair (I mean photography hair) and it’s called Hairplay. It’s gacha of course, consists of 4 different hairstyles (back/side/down/front blow) and flip blow (amazing one) as a reward, after playing the gacha machine 25 times. It also comes with pose balls for each one of the hairs. If you’re using bento hands, don’t forget to put them on as they animate your hands/fingers too. Here’s the gacha key for you to have a better look.

The skin applier I’m wearing is becoming one of my favorites so far. It’s Pumec’s release, currently at Tres Chic event and I’m using it on Lelutka’s Chloe bento head.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night and I’ll see you all next time.

Closer

New week, new month, new round of events. Including the return of the Arcade that opens on Wednesday. If you haven’t seen the shopping guide yet, I would suggest to sit down first and have a look, as it will take a while. Addams sponsors the event and has released a super sexy outfit for the ladies. It’s a lace bodysuit (available in too versions – sheer and solid) but you can also wear bra and panties separately. You will also find boots, in 3 different lengths, a flower bra and a mask as a reward to finish up your look. Check credits below for more details.

addams2

The head I have on is the new bento head from Lelutka, Chloe. I’m wearing PUMEC’s latest applier for Lelutka heads, Agatha, but I kept the default Chloe shape. Only changed it up a little. She’s pretty, right?

addams

Hair is one of my favorite from TRUTH. Rather old release but that’s not important at all. Still looks amazing. For the scene I used one of THOR’s past gacha releases, which now should be at his mainstore plus HAIKEI’s current gacha goodies from Kustom9.
