Comfort zones

“Great things never came from comfort zones”

Good morning world! I was off work for a couple of days so I had the chance to work on a few pictures this weekend. I feel exhausted but also happy. I had a lot of work to do and I think I’ve completed most of it. I will be participating in the Spring issue of Gallant magazine so stay tuned as it’s going to be pretty. I’m not quite sure when it’s going to be released but I’ll keep you posted. Also, I’ve seen who else is in it and they’re all wonderful!

So back to my pictures. I have mentioned before how of them get deleted eventually. It seems to be often the case. 9 out of 10 pictures I take end up in trash. I’ve been blogging for 2 years now (the anniversary was this month but not exactly sure when, ask Julie, she remembers stuff like that) and I’m still trying to find my niche. Do I like decor or fashion posts more? Which ones am I better at? Which ones do my readers prefer? I don’t think I’ll ever get the answers to these questions. And that’s alright, I don’t really want an answer. It’s enough for me that after 2 years I’m still growing and I’m still learning. Most importantly, I’m still enjoying this. I often complain about not getting enough sleep or feeling exhausted but I wouldn’t change it. I’m still addicted!

Speaking of comfort zones, I know well by now that I enjoy decor posts more than fashion. But with an avatar in them. I often stick to a certain style as it’s more convenient and easier to make. I happen to be blogging mostly for events and the way I see it, in order to cover as many new releases as possible, you have to do both. Coordinating your avatar within a decor scene is not an easy task. So many things you have to think about. What will you wear? Where will you sit. Will you sit or stand? Then, is everything still showcased clearly? They take me more time to make but once I’m done, I pat myself on the shoulder and go “good job”. Then of course, I stare at the pictures for too long, long enough, to hate and delete them in the end. But oh well. I’m confident I’ll reach to a point when everything will just get easier and faster. It has to!

So, enough rambling for one day. You can’t blame me, it’s been a while. Today’s post features more new stuff from the current round of Uber along with some other older releases. Take a look below for all the necessary deets and enjoy your shopping!

Good morning world! Only two more days to go and then I’m going to enjoy a long Easter weekend. I’ve gotten so many “happy Easter” wishes and I had to disappoint everyone by saying “It’s next week”. Which makes sense. I didn’t expect people to know when the Greek orthodox Easter is. So in the end, I just said thanks and moved on.

So, today’s Julie‘s birthday! I’ve expressed so many times how much I love this woman but it never gets old! We’ve been friends for such a long time, I have stopped counting but I haven’t stopped being grateful for having her in my life. Happy birthday bestie and wishing you all the best!

“What inspires one to act upon a thought
To bring forth creativity a moment once brought
Is it a scent, flavor, color or an emotion
Can the touch of a loved one tap into devotion”

The Greenhouse

Hello world!

It’s Wednesday, so be happy, we’re almost there. I will probably be working on Saturday too but I’m trying not to worry about that right now. I’ll panic on Friday and bitch about it then.

Let’s talk about Collabor88 though. Today’s post features many items from it. It also features the hot mamacita and my friend, Alexa Maravilla, who was patient enough to wait for me to take my picture. She knows well that I like to take my time. But back to the event. This round’s theme is Greenhouse, so as you can guess it has a lot of cute “green” stuff. Plants, flowers, pots and what have you. All there.

You can take a look at the shopping guide here and enjoy your shopping! I got a couple more posts from the event coming up so stay tuned.

Safari mornings

Good morning world! Sun is shining and phones are ringing. I should have left for work already but I’m still here…I wanted to post this before I leave. It’s going to be another busy day at work so who knows what time I’ll be home tonight. In the meantime, you might want to go and visit the Arcade, so here are a few more stuff from it.

This will be the last post I’ll make (probably – you can never be sure with me) for this current round and it’s a collaboration between me and the amazing Shocking Wonder. Well, she did the scene all by herself, so it’s hardly called a collaboration then, right?

I’ve put a link to her blog in the credits below so have a look for all the necessary details. Happy shopping and since most of these are gacha, good luck!

“Without dance…what’s the point(e)?”

Good morning everybody. Friday’s here and it’s a beautiful, sunny and warm(er) Friday. So many reasons to be happy today so I’m going to send that energy out to everyone. I’m late for work and it’s all Julie‘s fault, we started to talk on Skype so of course we can never stop, but that’s alright. I’ll just work faster and harder…(I guess).

Today’s post is a mix of various items, new releases and rather older ones, which I had made a few days ago but had forgotten about it. So there you go. Better late than never. Most of the events, the new releases are currently at, are about to end soon, so have a look below and don’t take your time with them. Who knows how long it’ll be before they hit the mainstores.

Rebaned

Hello world! Rebaned stands for “oh wow I did a picture with Miaa Rebane”. I just came up with it and you heard it here first, so each time you’ll use it, you’ll owe me 10 bucks so I can afford my fur addiction. They’re faux, keep your angry mail to yourselves, no animals were, or going to be, hurt.

So Miaa and I worked on a picture together. I was supposed to do the scene and she was in charge of our fashion look. The initial idea was different but eventually this is what we came up with. Now of course, if you want to see what the picture really is supposed to look like, go here and check her amazing version of it. And look, I debated a lot on posting mine or not. I was constantly asking myself: “What are you trying to prove here? Just keep yours away and enjoy Miaa’s for days”. But, out of the respect of the time she spent with me, she deserves to see it. And also I got some nerve!

Big, huge, enormous thanks to Miaa Rebane for joining me and for helping me broaden my fashion horizons. I know, I’m feeling poetic today.

J’ai un rêve

Hello peeps! Is everyone excited that the week is almost over? You should be and join me to a static happy dance right now.

I increased your appetite with my post yesterday  and I’m bringing you more food today and, in fact, there is more to come, but I can’t help it. They all look so good. Today’s menu has Fancy Decor’s hors d’oeuvres and if you know how to pronounce that, I applaude you. It’s a gacha set currently at the Arcade and like all the items in SL that have materials enabled, they look even better with “Advanced Lighting” turned on and some lights rezzed out!

I’ve recently blogged here about all the information for the current round of the Arcade so if you haven’t read it yet, please take a look. And good luck!
