Homemade happiness

I know our deal is I don’t ramble in the weekends, but thanks to my computer dying I have been posting less, so a) I have missed rambling and b) I owe you such.

Ok, for those that haven’t been keeping up with my blog, I’ve blogged on Monday (or Tuesday, not sure) that my computer is dead, currently at the computer tech guy, trying to figure out why it was getting the BSoD. He has come up with many reasons why, all of which make sense to me but apparently it’s still not fixed. He actually called me yesterday to tell me that it’s ready, only to call back 2 hours later to let me know it still gets some errors.

If you’re wondering how I’m still posting pictures, it’s because a)I’m using my father’s old laptop and b) I always take more pictures in the weekend, save them, edit and post them during the weekdays (when I can’t log on SL for too long). So I had taken a bunch of pictures last weekend, but after this one, I only have one more to post.

Anyways, today’s post features [ keke ]’s greenhouse from Deco(c)rate. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically a monthly mystery box filled with high quality, original mesh decor, home and garden items.  After the 8th of April, [ keke ] will be releasing the same build, but in white color in her mainstore. So if you’re bummed you missed this you can always purchase a previous box or get it in white. The hair is from Tram currently at the Crossroads and the outfit is from ISON at Collabor88. Skin and Head are, both new, from Pumec and Catwa, at the Skin Fair.

That would be all for now peeps. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend and are kind to one another. See you all next time.

Good morning peeps! Friday today so the mood is good. My computer is still at the “doctor’s” and let me tell you, I miss it, big time! I have been using my father’s laptop and…ermm..let’s just say it’s different. Editing this picture on his computer was quite challenging. But better than nothing. The computer tech guy contacted me yesterday, to let me know it was the RAM cards that caused the BSoD issue. They have lifetime warranty so they can be replaced for free, which is pretty cool, but it will probably take a while. I need to send them back to the company that made them, they need to examine them and then send me new ones. I’d give it a week but who knows how long this will take.

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.

The day went by pretty smoothly today. Even though I spent most of it Skyping with Jules, I managed to get a lot of work done. That feeling of completion makes me feel great. You know what I’m talking about. That moment when you finally finish something you’ve been working on, lean back and say to yourself “I did it”. To be completely honest with you, I was in a hurry today. I wanted to get everything done and leave only a few tasks for tomorrow, as it’s a bank holiday on Monday in Greece and I want to make it an extra long weekend.

thor2

I have no specific plans yet, but even the idea of not working for three days is enough to make me happy. Although, it’s me we’re talking about. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up spending it in bed (which is okay, I need to catch up on my sleep) and then take a lot of pictures on SL. But oh well. We shall see.

It’s almost midnight for me though, so let’s get to today’s post which features a bunch of new stuff. Let’s start with the gown I have on, which is by Lybra and currently available at Shiny Shabby. Did you know Lybra updated her color huds? Yes, you get more options now. She’s also rebuilding her mainstore but it’s not ready yet. At the same event you can check the new gacha from PUMEC. It consists of skin appliers for Catwa heads (rare & commons), mesh ears and mesh eyes. Now if you’re an attention freak like me, you probably noticed that my skin, eyes and ears are different than the ones on the close up picture. Yes, check again. Now, I want to say I did that on purpose, but I’m afraid that’s a lie. Truth is I got so excited with the skin applier (pretty much same way I react every time I try a new applier on my mesh/bento heads), I completely forgot about the rest of the items in the gacha.

thor3

The skin appliers come with a shape as well, but for this one I tried something different. This is Catwa’s Catya head but on Catwa’s Kimberly default shape. Looks pretty cute, right? Anyways, you can have a better look at the gacha key here. The hairbase I have on is from Tableau Vivant, currently available at the Enchantment. Hair is also by Tableau Vivant, but at Kustom9. I know, you have a lot of teleporting to do.

thor

And of course the scene I created is from THOR’s new release for Collabor88. I have mentioned before how much I love THOR’s work and how he never stops to amaze me. He has a certain style in his creations that just agrees with me. From this set, I pick the book of fairy tales as my favorite – It’s the one behind the tea, on the table. It has butterflies coming out of it. I mean, Come On!

That would be all for now people. Hope you’re having a great day/night! I’ll see you all next time.

Confinement

I had an awful day at work today. Have you ever noticed – I believe I have blogged about this before- how you get some really bad days sometimes, and not just one, but almost everything goes wrong? Is it like a universal rule where all hell breaks loose in order to teach us a lesson? And what would that be? Cause all I learned today was to “never go to work on a Monday again”.

roses-and-lillies

I will spare you the details but man, oh man… I’ve never been happier that I’m finally home. And yes, I know I keep complaining about my work but come on, bare with me! I’m struggling here! I did have a lovely weekend though, slept much, went out and took a bunch of pictures for you to see. Everything went according to plan.

roses-and-lillies3

Today’s post features the new release from Evolove for TLC. It’s a box and it’s called Confined. Only Evolove has confined me so far in such elegant and picturesque way! The box comes with a hud that allows you to change its color and as always, has a bunch of poses in it. The hair is also new from Tableau Vivant and currently at collabor88. Their past releases have been add-ons and hairbases for Lelutka’s Simone bento head. I’m so digging them! Of course, you can wear the add-ons with any head you like. You just need a tintable hairbase (if it’s not a Lelutka head) in order to match the hair color.

roses-and-lillies1

The lingerie is from erratic also at collabor88. There are options for you (brasserie, bodysuit, panties etc) if you get the full set or you can purchase only the parts of it you like/want. Last but not least, the skin applier is from ItGirls, not a new release but one of my favorites of hers.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night, be kind to one another and I’ll see you all soon.

Rust out

Sometimes, I’m having such a hard time, naming my posts. Usually I get inspired by something I wear or showcase in them. But there are days when nothing seems appropriate or right. Like in this case, I really didn’t want to name my post, Parka. I called it rust out, as the tones in the first picture, kind of reminded me of the color of rust. My first option was Rusty feline, as the panties and glasses have a leopard print, but I figured people would think that’s my nickname or something.

addams2

Today’s post is featuring the new releases by Addams. The beautiful parka which was released a couple of weeks ago and it’s available at the mainstore as well as the Geri Spice dress, available currently at Rewind event. At this point I want to share my experience about this post. Blogging a parka, is not easy. It gave me a hard time, as posing in it, is quite limited. I mean, you can always animate your body in it, sit down, lay down, bend over, fly or whatever but the jacket won’t look completely natural  in this positions. You know when sometimes you’re wearing a long skirt or a gown and when you sit down it surrounds your body but looks completely weird and unnatural? It is what it’s supposed to do but I really don’t like seeing that in pictures. So all I was left with, was only standing poses. Of course there’s nothing wrong with them, but I’m used to working with more intricate and complicated ones. Standing there, didn’t really feel like me.

addams

The hair I’m wearing is a new release by Tableau Vivant. It’s a beautiful updo, with an optional bow on it. It is currently at Collabor88, where you can also grab another style, a ponytail and hairbases for Lelutka heads. The hair of course will work on other heads too, but so far, Tableau Vivant has released hairbases only for Catwa and Lelutka. You can always play with your current head’s tintable hairbase to match the color of the hair you like.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a nice day and week and be kind to one another.

See you all next time!

Happy Saturday! The weekend has finally arrived. I am working today as well, so I don’t have many reasons to celebrate yet, but it is the weekend, so I’m a little happier. The Epiphany ends soon, which is why, I had to make sure you all had seen 22769 ~ [bauwerk]’s release for the event. It’s gacha of course and the theme of it “Art Atelier”. Such a lovely idea that can inspire you to make so many pictures. You can have a look at the gacha key here. Make sure you check it out before the event ends.

atelier

 The pose is new as well, from Speakeasy and can be found, with a bunch of other new ones (all for couples) at the Fetish Fair. The rest of the items featured are not new releases, apart from the hair by Lamb which is currently at Collabor88. The shape and skin I’m wearing is from ItGirls, new one, for Catwa heads, but since it’s not really obvious in this picture, I’ll make another post for you to see. Until then, you can always have a look at Annie‘s stream, to catch up on all of her latest releases.

I’m going to be quick today as a) it’s Saturday and, as promised, I never ramble in the weekends b) I will be late for work. But I’ll be back with another post soon so be patient. Yes, that is both a threat and a promise, hehe.

Have a nice day everyone and be kind to one another.

Another weekend is over and I don’t mean to bring anyone down but, why, oh why, don’t they last longer?!?! I refuse to spend the rest of the evening complaining, even though I enjoy complaining a lot – I know, I’m so much fun – I will just post this and run.

Hello lovely people. Friday is finally here. Are you excited? I am, even though today won’t be any different from previous days. It’s very interesting how we get joy from small, simple things like, being one day away from the weekend or when your favorite magazine is released or you get a message from a special someone. Yes, I said we. I know I’m quirky but I’m sure I’m not the only one, he he.

moneymaker2

Today’s post features a bunch of new releases. Lybra’s outfit for Shiny Shabby, Little bones’ hair, Genesis Lab’s skin for Eva bento head and Nanika’s appliers. It has been a very bad month for me, shopping-wise. I spent way too much money and I blame all these new wonderful designs. I am confident that I will eventually use everything in pictures one day but I really need to take it easy with shopping. If you have any advice on how to make me stop, please let me know.

That would be all for now. Hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend ahead of you. Be kind to one another!
