Sad memories, I seem to recall…

Good morning world and happy Sunday. It’s raining like there’s no tomorrow right now and I’m feeling a little blue. That is the expression, right? I will embrace this moody vibe this morning, enjoy my coffee and go bother somebody. Yes, that’s the thing to do when you’re feeling down. And yes, you’re lucky it’s the weekend and I can’t ramble. Otherwise I would bring you all down with me.

Good morning world and happy Friday. There is a group on Flickr called “Photoshop Vandalized Photos”. I’m a member of it and I often add my pictures there, as I usually go nuts on Photoshop. We all know that I’m not an expert at PS and I’m, most of the times, experimenting. It’s one of the tips Daeberethwen Arbenlow had given me. Trial and error. Try on filters, layers, light leaks, photo plates or whatever and see what you like the most. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. The world’s future is not depending on the picture you’re going to post. Besides, it’s the only way you’ll learn.

My picture today is an example of that. It was a normal, colorful picture at first, that meant to showcase 22679’s new release, but I was feeling creative and this is what happened to it. So I will conveniently call this Art and move on. I guess you want to see what the decor stuff really look like though, so have a look here. All the rest is listed and credited below.

Double anticipation

Good morning world and happy Friday! Today I am taking us to Reykjavik. I have recently been to Iceland and it was a great pleasure working on this project. The last couple of weeks have been a trip to Europe thanks to the 6th Republic event. We visited a lot of places and today we’re on the last one. The event ends tomorrow!

Also, this time, I’m not traveling alone, Lawrence D. Pryce is with me. I’m sure you’re familiar with his work, but if not yet, I highly recommend checking his stream out. Apart from an amazing photographer and blogger, he is a wonderful blogger manager as well. He’s been sharing our posts on social media, writing a few words about each and every one of them, describing the story that every picture tells. I really loved that.

6th Republic is about to end but a few more events are still running and many more are coming up. ROMP is one of them, where you can find this pose by Body Language that comes as a full set bonus item. It’s 5 bento poses and all look great so it was really hard to pick a favorite.

The outfit is a new release by Addams. Many options for you on how to stylize it and with many colors for you to choose from so make sure to check it out.

The scene consists of a lot of stuff again. Most of them are from 6th Republic and from this month’s Deco(c)rate box. But there are also some decoration goodies from Fancy Decor that you can find at Collabor88 and their mainstore. Have a look at the credits below as everything is listed.

Many thanks to Lawrence for posing with me so patiently and to you all for following me to this Eurotrip. Here is a list of all the cities:

Hamburg, DE
Cornwall, UK
Santorini, GR
Genoa, IT
Paris, FR
Prague, CZ
London, UK
Budapest, HU

Good morning world. It has been raining a lot since yesterday and at first it was cute but now it has to stop. I was in such a summer-y mood and it has totally ruined it for me. But it’s a matter of time before it gets all warm and sunny again and stay like that for the next months, so maybe I should just zip it and appreciate it. How boring my life would be if I didn’t complain a little. I’m sure my bestie, Jules, just coughed. I know she, of all people, would miss my grumpy self more than anything!

So let’s move on to the stuff, shall we? Have you guys been to ROMP yet? It opened on the 12th and will stay open for a few more days so you have to put it in your schedule before the 26th of May. Lots of stuff for you to choose from there.

Today’s post features the release of 22769 for the event (I’ve written that number so many times lately, I often confuse it and try to, unsuccessfully unlock my phone with it). The whole set is called Table Dance, it’s a regular release and consists of couch, sofa, poles and some decor stuff (bottle of whiskey, stack of money and a tray with some drugs on it). I knew it would inspire me to make a picture immediately and I was right.

That explains the title of the post as well. Valkania is Greek for the Balkan peninsula. If you’re European, living in eastern and southeastern Europe you will totally get it. The rest will have to assume, I guess. He he.

The panty is from ALTAIR, also at ROMP. It comes in a full lingerie set but I had to crop the picture at some point. Rest of the decor bottles and ashtray come from FAKEICON’s gacha release from the 6th Republic, inspired by Hungary (if I remember correctly). 6th Republic ends on Saturday so you should hurry people!

Last but not least, the shoes are a new release from Friday, currently at Uber. They come with optional socks as well, so check them out.

Good morning world. We have a saying in Greece, “Τετάρτη μπήκε, βδομάδα βγήκε” which literally means, “Wednesday entered, week exited” or can be loosely translated to Happy Humpday! Last weekend I didn’t rest or chill at all, therefore I’m really looking forward to this one and I’m already coming up with excuses on how to get out of work on Saturday.

I have also started to think about what I want to do this summer. Is it too early, you think? Last Summer, due to some incidents I didn’t go on vacation so I owe it to myself this year. I have absolutely no idea on what to do or where to go but I think it’s time I started to work on that as well. I love to travel, usually outside of Greece but to be honest, it’s really hard to leave Greece during the summer. What are your plans for the summer? If you have any good ideas, please share.

Anyways, I woke up early today so I felt like rambling a little. Let’s move on to the stuff. This picture is more of a fun post for me as most of the items used are not new releases. And the title is a reminder for me…

The skybox is from hive and was last month’s luxebox release since Scarlet Creative was not in that round. Most of the decor is from 22769 from past releases. Then you have some pretty frames from keke and the console set is from Newchurch from last round of Cosmopolitan event, which is bi-weekly so I didn’t make it on time. Events that only last for two weeks really stress me out! The set should be at the mainstore now. The hair I’m wearing is from Truth, last month’s vip group gift and it’s the 3rd time I’m blogging it but I just love it that much! Last but not least, the romper is from Me Sew Sexy from the current round of The Chapter Four. Have a look at the credits below for more details and have fun shopping.

Ok, I know the title might confuse you a little, but there is one person that will get it and that’s basically why I did it! Oh, where are my manners? Good morning everybody. How are you? In case you’re wondering how yesterday’s performance went, I can proudly tell you that it went great. In case you’re wondering about the performance I’m writing about, you really need to read my blog more often. Sometimes I’m very funny and informative I hope!

Anyways, I’m not supposed to ramble but it’s my own rule so I can break it any time I want. Today’s post features all the stuff you can get at the Epiphany from 22679 gacha, the Record Shop! It’s definitely a big one and a very good one. The record shop itself is an exclusive, which basically means you can get it after you’ve gained 25 epiphany points. You can have a better a look at the gacha key here and more information on how to play here.

Shoeless in Hamburg

Good morning everybody! It’s the weekend and I know I’m not supposed to ramble but this time I have to! 6th Republic is back and I can’t just ignore that. I’m incredibly honored to have been chosen to cover the event, so get ready for many many pictures this month.

If you’re not familiar with it already, the event is bi-annual, it’s about decor except from this round, though, where you will also get some fashion as well. The theme for this 2nd anniversary round is Destination: Europe, so all designers have been inspired by their favorite places in the continent. I have seen some Athens and Santorini releases so far and I’m very very excited!

The layout of the sim is the same as the previous round, perfectly decorated as always (I loved the “memories” section at the sim), with Jay‘s amazing windlight and will open for you tonight at 12pm SLT. You can have a look here for more details about the event and all the participating stores.

My first post for the event will be about Hamburg! I have mentioned before how 22679 constantly challenge me as a blogger with their work. This time they almost had me! They created “The Speicherstadt Hamburg”, which I had to google myself as I have never been to Hamburg yet, sadly. The build is incredible, so real-life looking and so big as well! But size, sometimes, does matter, so I can’t imagine making something like this, in a smaller size – it wouldn’t make sense I guess. You can have a look for more details about the build here, to give you a better idea of what it is.

The shoes are from Essenz, also at the 6th Republic. They’re wearable of course but you can also rez them as decor, in 3 different options. Pretty cool!

So guys, I don’t know how you’ll be spending your night/noon, whatever timezone you’re on, but make sure you visit the event as it will remain open for only 2 weeks and you might want to hurry!

Good morning world! I know what you’re thinking…this is me posting “every other day”. I’m sorry, I tried! But there are so many good things out there, created every day, I can’t just ignore them, I need to share!

We Love Role-Play opens tonight and it’s going to be huge. It’s an anniversary round so gifts are going to be available for you by every store booth. For this picture I used 22679’s release for the event, which is pretty big! In order to showcase the whole thing I had to really zoom out and do a landscape picture but I’m not good at landscaping, so this is what you get instead. The set consists of ramps, stairs, corners and basically parts of a path, which you can create by combining all the pieces together like a puzzle! It was great fun working on it. You can have a better look at the whole set here.

Make sure you check the credits for the rest of the stuff and have fun at the event!

Perpetual journey

Good morning! Last night I realized that, this month, I have been blogging daily. Yes, there hasn’t been a single day in April where I didn’t post a picture and I’m a bit proud of myself. It’s not the greatest accomplishment in the world for sure, but thinking about how limited my time is and how hard for me is to concentrate sometimes, I think I will buy myself an ice cream today.

Do I recommend blogging daily? Absolutely not! I believe that, no matter how skillful you are, when you massively produce, whatever that is, your quality, inevitably will be affected or you will make mistakes. Blogging wise, it could be anything. Wrong credits, forget to add something you wanted to your scene, a very bad editing of a picture etc. If you can do it, that’s great. I admire you for that. I personally have realized some mistakes I’ve made only because I rushed a post (which I won’t point out as you might have not noticed them, hehe) or I see some pictures I have posted and wonder what I was thinking. I could have edited them better or worked on a scene differently.

Noone forced me to post every day, I know. I believe it was an unofficial challenge I put myself through, to see if I can make it. And I’m planning on finishing it. I will continue to post daily until the end of the month, but after that, I will try to go back to “every other day”. I said I will try, because I know me, it won’t be the first time that I will break my own promises. I know for sure though, that I have to relax a little. This has started to feel overwhelming again and I need to be enjoying it.

Anyways, today’s post will be the last one featuring stuff from Bloom. The event ends on Sunday and I believe I covered pretty much everything from it. I’m kidding, there’s still plenty of goodies for you to see and grab. It has been a blast covering the event, mostly because I got to make a lot of spring-y, outdoorsy scenes. They’re new to me, very interesting and challenging. The rest of the stuff is new releases from 22769 from the new Shiny Shabby round and some FLF goodies from Hive. So take a minute to read the credits below for more details.

OBSERVATORY
click for full size

That also explains the post’s title. It’s my “Perpetual Journey” to the world of blogging. I didn’t know what perpetual means and had to google it. It will be my word of the day. Off to work now! Have a lovely day and be kind to one another. See you all next time.
