The Secret Teahouse

Good morning world. Today I’ve realized that naming my posts, usually takes me more than actually making them. That is not always the case but happens quite often. I always want a nice title for them, something to catch one’s eye and hopefully to explain or compliment my picture. But man, that is hard! I have considered borrowing song lyrics, poems or whatever, and I often do, but still, it’s not easy finding something witty and to the point. So from now on, when that happens, and since time is money, I will name those kind of posts after the name of items used in the post itself. So “Secret Teahouse” is the name I’m going with today. Thank you.

Speaking of the Teahouse, it’s one of the new releases you’ll find by 22769, currently at Japonica (BAROQUE) event. Comes with some decor too. I did some research but not a thorough one, and if I’m right, the event ends in 2 days, so hurry up and visit today. I heard the sim there is nice.

The outfit is beautifully made by Addams, their newest gacha release at Epiphany. Have a look at the gacha key here and here (there are 2 gacha sets) for more details on what you can win. And of course, scroll down for the landmarks and information on every item used.

Good morning world. Nothing went as planned in the weekend, so even if I didn’t want to jinx anything, I somehow managed to screw it all up. Anyways. Right now I’m trying to figure out my blogging schedule for the week as I got plenty to show but not much time. Most of them are at events that will end this or next week so I need to prioritize. Posting twice a day is always another good option but it will finish me off. We shall see.

Today’s post features new stuff from Addams, Tram, Friday and Dahlia. Have a look below for everything used.

Good morning world! You know that moment when you have a picture ready, days ago, saved as draft but something always comes up so you have to constantly postpone it? Yes, it’s one of those posts today. But as they say, better late than never, right?

So today, I’m showcasing the new hair from TRUTH which is currently at Uber. You can of course use the included stylize hud to change the hair accordingly but it also comes with a hat or no hat option. Beautiful.

The hammocks are by Concept at Shiny Shabby, available in 4 colors and very summery! So is the rest of the decoration used as a background, which I’ve blogged here already so have a look in case you missed it.

The bikini I’m wearing is by Addams and it’s really a swimsuit or monokini, whatever it’s called which basically gives you different options on how to wear it. Speaking of Addams, they’re celebrating their 3 years on SL and have a bunch of amazing susprises planned for you all. Have a look here for more details.

Good morning world. It’s going to be super hot in Athens today. According to the forecast, the temperature will reach 44C degrees (111F for the Americans) so if I don’t make it and the heat finally kills me, I would like to say that I love you all and that I leave all my millions of shoes to Julie. The rest of my items will be auctioned or something. Ok, jokes aside, It’s not new to us to get temperatures like this but it’s a too soon. I don’t even want to imagine what it’s going to be like in July.

Anyways, today’s post features a bunch of new and almost new stuff. The romper I’m wearing is from Addams, a mainstore release and super lovely. The hair is from tram, currently available at Uber and the sandals are from Friday, super cute, available in many colors at Kustom9. This certain look is definitely one of my favorites so far as it’s very summery and very close to my style in real as well.

The scene consists of a lot of things, all listed and credited below. A quick mention to some of them though is necessary.

The table, tableware and kitchen clutter are from [ keke ]. They were released in the previous round of Uber and being the terrible blogger that I am, I finally got to blog them today. Ugh! They are at the mainstore now so in case you missed them, drop by and check them out along with the other beautiful creations there.

The shelves and string hanging planter are from 22769 currently available in 3 different options at Shiny Shabby.

The rest of the items used are from HAIKEI, some of which I blogged here recently but I’m offering a different perspective today.

Have a look at the credits below for everything else used and for landmarks of each and every one of them.

Good morning world! I don’t have much to say this morning, so consider yourselves lucky. You won’t have to start your week with my irrelevant rambling. I’m probably still on a weekend mood, as everything is really slow. Yes, I am calling myself slow, I have the right to do so.

Today’s post is a quickie. Addams made a new dress and named it Divine for all the obvious reasons. It’s pretty fancy if you ask me and since I wasn’t inspired enough to make a fancy, party or disco scene, I visited the Elysion sim to shoot this. Never disappoints. The dress  is available for your Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies and in 20 colors with 42 color panties (optional for those who might get lucky wearing it) and with also 2 options of brightness since it’s materials enabled. It’s a mainstore release so stop by and try a demo.

Beach more, worry less

Good morning world and happy Friday. I found this quote “Beach more, worry less” online this morning and it made me giggle. Of course, conveniently I read “bitch more”, which is kind of my thing. In either version, it makes sense anyways.

I live in Athens and but I don’t live near water unfortunately. No drive is too long though when the destination is the beach. Now you might wonder, why all the beach talk all of a sudden. Don’t blame me, blame the new creations that keep on coming on SL. And it’s about to get worse, Summerfest is only one week away!

Today’s post features the new swimsuit Addams made for Collabor88. Super sexy and in so many beautiful summery colors. It was hard to pick a favorite.

The hair I’m wearing consists of a hairbase with a base and bun add-ons, one of the 3 versions made by Tableau Vivant and currently available at Kustom9.

Last but not least, the scene is created by the new stuff by Concept, also available at Kustom9. It’s a gacha set and a wonderful one. I had so much fun working on it and made me suffer that I had to go to work instead of an actual beach bar in RL after I was done.

You are nowhere

Good morning world! Beautiful day today, isn’t it? You know what’s funny, one of my friends, out of the ten that actually read my blog, called me a meteorologist the other day when I ran into him in-world. He told me it’s funny how I always mention the weather. So it made me realize that, indeed, I do mention the weather a lot. Well I usually start my posts by mentioning the weather. But then again, why not? Clearly it’s a big part of my mood everyday and I’m sure for many people as well. And for your information, I would make a great weather lady, I used to practice it when I was a kid. Stand in front of the TV and pretend I’m telling the weather. It was cute.

Anyways, today’s post features the huge Milky Motion gacha set at the Arcade. This collection is epic, so I had to show it eventually. You can have a look at the credits below for a full list of items included in the gacha and for all of the other items used in the picture.

The top I’m wearing is a new release by Addams, was released a couple of weeks ago with the Cerisse Bohemian lingerie that I blogged here but can be worn/bought separately as well.

Good morning world! I don’t know why but lately I can’t think of anything special to write about other than the stuff I’m showing every day. And I know some of you might think “oh finally, she’s going to shut up” and I normally would but I can’t. Rambling is my thing and sometimes it makes sense, others it doesn’t. By the way, how willing is everyone to learn some Greek so I can finally ramble all I want in my native language? Anyways, I could be going through a kind of “rambler’s block”. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Today’s post features the new beautiful creations by [ keke ]. The flowers are called Aquilegia and can be found at Uber along with some furniture/decor and in many colors. Have a look here for a sample. Then you can also get these dragonflies with lights that are [ keke ]’s release for this month’s Deco(c)rate box. So beautiful! This is also where I borrowed the post’s title from.

Last but not least, the romper I’m wearing is by Addams, their newest release and available at the mainstore in more colors than I can remember or even name. I know it’s super cute and I’m pretty sure you’ve bought it by now, but if not, here’s a tip for you. Addams participates in the current SL14B birthday event and offers a 300L$ gift card to everyone there. So if you’re a bit low on cash, there you go. Maybe it’s meant to be.

For this picture I had the beautiful company of the sweet Mos Kitoz. He makes pretty pictures, you can see his work here.

Good morning world! It is a bit moody morning today, the sun is there but currently hidden behind some clouds. I’ll give it a couple of hours. The temperature is still high of course which doesn’t make it easy to focus on anything other than summer vacation but I will manage. It’s another challenge which I gladly accept I guess.

Speaking of challenges, I have mentioned before how the work of 22769 makes me use my mind quite a lot. First of all they produce massively. I guess talented people are that way. They come up with an idea and they just create it, making it look effortless. Second of all they create a variety of things, different styles, which personally makes me wonder every time what should I do with this or that. Because you probably know as well as I do that sometimes a picture happens so easily and naturally, but other times it takes some thinking. Try out things, experiment with styles, angles, moods etc. until you finally make something that showcases the product but also makes sense.

Today I’m showing their release for Genre, a starship skybox, table and chair, all sci-fi themed. The skybox alone is an incredible design. If you’re a science fiction freak, you will be amazed. If you’re not, you’ll start considering it. The items are on a 25% discount whilst at the event, which ends on the 13th so you have less than a week to check them out.

Not all who wander are lost

Good morning world. Everyone had a good weekend? I definitely did. The weather it’s getting better and better every day (well, it did rain yesterday, but only for a couple of hours) which affects my mood positively but also makes me think of beaches and summer holidays so will probably give me a hard time focusing at work.

Speaking of hard times, let’s move on to the stuff. Today I’m showing the new gacha Hive released at the Arcade. The set is called Summer Camp, consists of 14 common and 3 rare items to collect, each and every one of them amazing. So why a hard time?

A gacha like this requires a full landscape. And I’m terrible at it. I first worked on this set about a week ago, trying to mix and match other things from the Arcade as well, wanting to showcase everything the best way possible and I thought I had made a good job until I saw posts of this set from other bloggers and photographers on social media. They were beautiful, inspiring and made me decide that I needed to work on this more and differently. But I don’t worry anymore. Alexa promised me to teach me how to terraform and create big, impressive landscapes so there you go. I will, one day, amaze you with them. Until then, be gentle and remember that I’m a noob. He he.

I managed to use some other stuff from the Arcade as well, such as Brocante’s bicycle and miwa’s airship kitchen decoration items. Have a look at the credits below, everything’s listed. Last but not least, everything I’m wearing, apart from the top (which is a new Addams release but you’ll get a better look at it in another post soon) is also from the Arcade by Tableau Vivant, Vinyl and Friday.
