Rainforest paradise

Good morning! It’s another Monday and even though it’s the summer now, I still hate them as much as any other season. I’m finally catching up on my blogging requirements and getting back into shape, so at least I’m happy about that.

I definitely missed blogging during the month that I was away, I did not miss however, having to name my posts. I would have posted this an hour sooner had I not tried to come up with a cool title. And rainforest paradise is all I came up with.

Anyways, the day is young and I got a bunch of things to do in real, so I’ll just zip it for now and let you carry on with your day. Everything is listed below as always so grab a snack and take a look!

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

Finally the weekend’s here and as I promised, I’ll spare you my long monologues and get straight to the point.

Check out PUMEC’s new releases. PUMEC is currently at the Coven, the Crossroads and We Love RolePlay events. First two events’ releases require a Catwa head, since they’re appliers for them but the WLRP one doesn’t, since it’s mesh eyes, available in many colors, including a hud for your Catwa mesh eyes (in case you have them). Necklace-choker is from Emo-tions for the WLRP new round as well and the manicure is new release from Nailed it at the On9 November round that recently opened. So lots to do this weekend. Have fun shopping!

See you all next time…

I’m always quiet on Saturdays…I’m also in a hurry! Promise to ramble next time.

Quick overview: New Genesis Lab head at the Epiphany event. Rare of course, so good luck. I believe the GL creators listened to their fans and their couple of new releases have smaller eyes than the previous heads. Her name is Lorena and you’ll get a better look at her in one of my upcoming posts. Tattoo is new from Nanika for Tres Chic and the gown is sexy and revealing from The Annex for the new round of ROMP.

That’s all for now…see you all tomorrow, have a nice day/night and weekend!

Office fun

Weekends arrived and weather is miserable in the UK so time to cuddle up and relax at home, do all the things I don’t have time for in the week, one of which is to finish the final season of The True Blood series I have been watching past weeks, as I said yesterday, I love Vampire shows, this is a great show to watch and soon my final season of The Vampire Diaries will be back cannot wait lol.   That’s my afternoon planned, and that’s besides the shopping I need to do in SL so many awesome events open right now and C88 opens today which has to be one of, if not my favourite events to attend.  My wallet is already screaming don’t go don’t go but I cannot resist lol

For today’s picture it was inspired when I was decorating the study in my new place, I got all the amazing furniture at the [235] store and it was all Gacha too so I was like a kid at Christmas lol the arm chair however is Gacha Rare by Bee Designs.   So my study got to thinking about office fun, and whilst admitting I’ve never wore such sexy attire to my office jobs it could make for a very interesting day right lol the sexy outfit is courtesy of The Annex and is available now at Suicide Dollz, finished of with the sexy thigh high boots by CandyDoll.

Have a great Saturday everyone ♥

Bon mot

Bon mot

noun [bon moh]

a witty remark or comment; clever saying; witticism.

That’s the definition that can be found online for “bon mot”. Now if you’re wondering how is that relevant to this post, it’s not. But I don’t care. I wanted to share, hehe. I’ve always admired people that are able to use their mind and talk back to me. I consider myself a brat, but in a sense of not being a conformist and follow the trends or believe everything everyone tells me, blindly. I also enjoy annoying people, every now and then, but only those that can actually take a joke and give one back. I’m sorry but it’s only fun. Those who know me, know that I mean well and not offending anybody, at least never intentionally. My bestie Jules, is surely one of the wittiest people I’ve ever met. One of the reasons why we’re so close for all these years is how we both make a fool of ourselves, yet with class and dignity and then joke about it. She’s also one of the few people I know that can listen to my jokes and all the nasty things I will tell about her, laugh with them and then return the “compliments” back to me,  and even better ones. So yes, if there is a message in today’s post, that would be, stop taking life or yourselves too seriously and try to joke and smile more. Life is better when you’re laughing.

A few words about tonight’s post are also necessary. The corset is from the Annex store, available in many colors and for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. The tattoo is from Nanika and is my favorite of all her releases so far. Both can be found in the new round of Tres Chic. The decor consists of a few gacha items from Glam Affair Home for previous Chapter Four event, apart from the beautiful Winerycab Radio “dresser” which is an old release by Thor. I really don’t know if it is actually called a dresser or a cabinet, so feel free to correct me in the comments. The picture was taken, once again, in the new house by Cobble Hill Design Studio which you can find in the On9 September round.

That’s all for now lovely readers, have a good day/night wherever you are and be kind to one another.

It is raining in Athens today. I’m feeling blue but loving it in at the same time. We only get rain for 2-3 months every year so when it finally does, it’s magical! I’m sure if a British person read this now, would probably slap me, I know Jules will sigh as soon as she reads it, hehe, but it is true. I personally enjoy it when it rains, even though Athens is not built or prepared for heavy rain or storms. Matter of time before the streets flood, get slippery, traffic jam is created in seconds, everyone is late for work and chaos takes over the city again. Speaking about chaos,  Greek health system is no better.

I’ve not been very active lately due to a personal family health issue that made it necessary for me to be in the hospital for a couple of days. Everything was supposed to be over by now and back to normal but sadly it is not. No need to bother you will all these, everything will be fine eventually, I only felt I needed to share with you all that I miss blogging and photography so much and I’m trying hard to find the time, but lately there is none. But enough with the drama. Few words about today’s post are also needed.

I’m incredibly amazed by the frequency mesh head creators, design and release their new heads. I know nothing about designing on SL and I don’t know if it’s easier to create a mesh head than a mesh dress for example, but I would assume, it is not.

I think it’s safe to say Catwa and Genesis Labs have been the most productive ones. Both stores release up to 3-4 new heads every month which is something I find very impressive and incredible. I appreciate how committed some people are to their work and how seriously they take it.

Genesis Lab’s most recent release is Keily, mesh head version 2.0 which means all current Genesis appliers work on her. There is a big resemblance to the notorious Kylie Jenner and one can easily see the anagram there. Just rearrange the letters and instead of Keily you get Kylie. Hehe. She’s now available at the new round of Uber, so I highly recommend trying a demo and see what you think of her yourselves.

Yesterday a new pic on Flickr was released, titled K&K which I’m guessing is the Jenner sisters (Kendall and Kylie). Probably GL newest release for the Book of Daniel fundraising event that is due to open in 3 days. Also, Genesis Lab. have blogger application open, so good luck to everyone that will apply.

Who doesn’t like magazines? Whether it’s fashion, lifestyle or you name it, magazines are definitely a huge part of our everyday lives. I recently read a very interesting article on the influence of magazines in the fashion industry. According to the author “the history of fashion magazines shows that fashion magazines have been linked to fashion in the early beginnings. It reflects that the driving force behind the growth of magazines, is fashion itself. Magazines have become an essential tool for keeping customers close as they pursue their decision journeys on the way to purchase”. It’s a theory that definitely applies on me. No matter how busy I might get daily, I will always find ten minutes to go through certain magazines, catch up with trends and fashion tips or just read about random celebrity gossip (makes me feel so good about myself afterwards, haha). Lately though, I usually do that online. Most magazines now are available online as well, which is something I’m not against, even though I do enjoy the old traditional way of reading them.

I had heard about magazines in SL as well, but never had the chance to read one before. I wasn’t sure where I could get one or even which ones they are. To be honest with you, I still don’t. When I was asked to make a picture for a new SL magazine I knew I couldn’t say no. You probably know well by now that I really enjoy challenges. Also, I really love the Annex. The store has well designed mesh with great attention to detail and the sizes are available for all popular female mesh bodies. Store has recently added lucky boards too so make sure you check them out.

The Second U magazine has been released only a few days ago by the lovely Beloved Ruby and her team. I had a conversation with her about it and here’s what you need to know. Originally, the magazine was planned to be published 4 times a year. However, many people have expressed their interest in seeing the magazine published a lot sooner. So there are discussions now about the possibility of publishing every two months. The best quality and content are their main goals so they would never risk losing that over quantity. The magazine will be published online only with subscriber kiosks in-world where everyone will be notified about each new release. You can also follow magazine’s social media and be up to date with everything related to it. Most importantly, when they say It’s All About You! – it means that every single Second Life Resident is part of this magazine. Your comments, thoughts, work, suggestions, will all be listened to and may be published in the magazine as well.

This picture is for the premier issue of the magazine, for the Annex store in page 10. You can now read the magazine online here:

Have a nice evening.
