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.

Glitter princess

I woke up feeling tired today. It might have to do with the fact that it’s Monday again. Or the fact that this weekend was…meh. Have you ever had a weekend when you have so many things to do but you end up feeling overwhelmed and doing absolutely nothing? It sucks when I think about it now. Kind of feels like a waste of time. I wanted to sleep more and I didn’t. I wanted to work on some pictures and I didn’t. The only thing I did was shop more. Because apparently there’s no day in the week or enough exhaustion in the world to keep me from doing that. He he.

keke1

Today’s post features stuff by [ keke ]. If you haven’t been at her store yet, you’re missing out. She creates beautiful things for home and garden and it’s impossible not to find something you’re going to use from them. Her latest releases have been rugs and glitter waterfalls, so if you’re a princess like me, you’re going to enjoy them. Have a look at the credits below for her mainstore’s SLurl and details for every item used in the picture.

The Love Potion

Sometimes I wish I could do magic. Do you remember the TV series, Charmed? I used to watch it all the time and pretend I’m a witch when no one was watching. Piper, the one that could freeze time was my favorite. Yes embarrassing, I know, but it’s the least embarrassing out of everything I have done in my life. Anyways, wouldn’t it be super cool if you could create potions for anything you’d wish for? I have a huge list of potions I would create and a “Love” one would be probably on the top 3. In most cases, love happens with certain potions, called Alcohol so maybe you can stick to that as well.

Muse of Spring

Good morning everyone! It’s the weekend finally and I’m excited. I have to work today sadly but I’m in a good mood. That never happens so I guess I need to enjoy this while it lasts. As you probably know, I never ramble in the weekends, giving you the chance to just see some pictures without my nonsense in between, but I need to make a quick mention to the stuff.

march-muse1

We Love RolePlay opens tonight. There are a bunch of new stuff there for you to get and I usually showcase more than one in my pictures but this time I will only show you one. There will be future posts about the others. The outfit is from Sweet Kajira and for Maitreya only. It comes with a tiara and armband as well. It’s designed in the right way for me to also show you the new tattoo from Nanika, currently at The Crossroads. Hair is from Tableau Vivant, from the Hairplay gacha at the Arcade.

march-muse

The scene is from 22769, also at the Arcade. It’s called Colors of Spring and consists of a lot of pretty stuff. Flower pots, pillows, lanterns, basically things you can use to decorate your garden or house, if you want to make it more colorful. Here is the gacha key for you to see.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a good day/night and I’ll see you all next time!

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.

The unfamiliar host

As you have probably noticed, I have started to create my own scenes for my pictures. It’s been probably a month that I have been doing so and I’m enjoying it so much. I started to do that because I was experiencing issues at sims. Apart from the fact that I like my privacy when I’m working and usually at the sims I would go to, someone would photobomb my pictures, my computer and graphics card wouldn’t allow me to take snapshots on ultra graphics and would eventually make me crash constantly. So finally, my gacha machines obsession, found its purpose. Ever since I’ve been a SL resident, I would always play decor gacha machines, even if it was stuff that didn’t look interesting or necessary to me. I would collect random pieces from each machine and store, because “one day I might need them”. Then, as soon as the opportunity came, I would put them all together to make something beautiful. Hopefully, I have succeeded in most cases.

rezology1

The process usually takes me a couple of hours. Depending on how big my scene is going to be, plus, how many items I’m featuring in one picture. But trust me, it feels so good. Kind of like a puzzle game where you’re given different items and you have to make them all look like they belong together. Makes you become resourceful and come up with ideas that you would have never thought about before. Plus, it helps you grow. I mean, if you’re a blogger, why not start to work with items out of your style too and challenge yourself with something new?

rezology
click for full size

As soon as my scene is ready, I take a small break and then try to think about where I am going to be in it. My goal is consistency. If it’s a kitchen, you don’t want to be in a gown. If it’s a beach you don’t want to be in lingerie. If colors match too, would be perfect.

So, enough rambling for one night. This post features a bunch of new releases, mostly decor stuff. I know the list of credits is super long, but come on. Given the amount of time I spent to create this scene, plus, writing all credits down and linking them to urls, you owe me to at least have a look. He he!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and 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.

 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.

Those who follow my posts, probably remember that I have OCD. I also have a sick obsession with detail and small things that other people might find unimportant or irrelevant. For example, I will always notice if the frames on a wall are straightened, I will never put a coffee mug or a glass on the table without a coaster underneath or if you open my closet, you’ll see my clothes, all tidy and properly organized, according to color. Why it’s actually weird why I can’t seem to organize my inventory, which couldn’t be messier. I do enjoy being a mess every now and then though. Makes me feel like a complete rebel!

thor1

I posted on Plurk on Sunday, asking advice on how I can make the textures on objects stop refreshing every 5 seconds. It’s been a month now that I’ve been experiencing this issue. This post gave me a hard time, for that reason exactly. I rezzed the objects, decorated and made the scene. I dressed myself up and prepared to take the picture, only to realize, once again, that some objects on the picture were blurry. Each item was refresing, one after the other, making it impossible for me to take one picture alone. I contacted almost everyone I know on SL, showing them a gyazo of it, asking what could be wrong. I even had the lovely Reina Spencer come over and check my frames per second. Most possible scenario, my graphics card is dying. Apparently I had too much stuff in my platform plus on my screen (huds etc.) making it hard for my graphics card to “read” them all and inevitably forcing them to refresh constantly. I don’t know if that makes sense, but derezzing and detouching some things helped. But you can guess my reaction when I took the picture, saw it and found out that most of the things in it were blurry and not completely rezzed. Has been a huge test on my OCD.

I am stubborn though and I don’t give up easily. So after 1.000 curses, 3 cups of coffee and 4 hours of sleep deprivation, I managed to take the picture. I really wanted to, as it features the new creations from THOR at the Cosmopolitan event. Beautiful designs as always, so I wanted you all to see them. Post’s title is also inspired by one of the items you will see on the table. The skin applier I’m wearing is also new from PUMEC and currently at the Coven. It’s for Catwa heads only and there are a bunch of skin tones for you to choose from.

Happy shopping peeps!

That’s all for now. Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another.

More details about the gacha

(from THOR’S notecard that is included in the set)

“This gacha set is composed by 18 items (for the complete setup), all modifiable and all transferable.
– Lamps with script that allows turning on and off the light. They have a menu for features: hold the click on for 5 seconds to open it, or just change the notecard inside to have a different setup about light/glow/color etc by default.
– The sofa and the stool have animations poses (two for the sofa, single for the stool)
– The stove and the trunk have a menu to open/close them.
– The turn table has a tri-touch system, so: touching the plexyglass it open and close, touching the long play it starts to turn on or off, touching the little arm it has an animation so it goes on the long play.
At last, touching the wood part, you can listen an entire song.
It is modifiable, so you can add your music too, just looking inside as any split of music is called (before the name-after the series number-at last the exact timing).
It will recognize the song directly and will put in the menu, giving the choice to listen to it (even many songs).”
