Veni Vidi Cycle

I’m finally embracing the autumn spirit. Weather in Greece has helped. The couple of heavy rains and quite some cold we’ve been experiencing lately, make me just want to put on some thigh high socks and a cool jacket and ride my bicycle in the forrest. Well, I live in Athens, so that’s not quite possible, but hey, one can dream and hope.

For this picture I had the help of my super talented friend Cocolinox Decuir who had the patience to wait for me after every one of my 23 computer crashes I experienced that day. Yes, my own personal record. Merci beaucoup for the help cheri!

Thor participates in this round of You.Gatcha event with a “Living on two wheels” release. And no, he doesn’t mean motorcycles. He means cute bicycles instead. The gacha consists of four common bicycles, in different colors/styles which can be used as decor only, one rare in four different colors and one static pose (for either male or female) and one ultrarare, again in four colors and with two static couple poses. You can have a better look at the gacha key here.

Rest of the styling is random stuff I’ve been meaning to blog for quite some time now but never had the chance before. Have a look at the credits for more info.

That would be all for now. Have a nice day/evening everyone and be kind to one another.

Relax

After the horrific last post I made, I needed to relax and make something that felt more familiar and more… me! Luckily I was given the opportunity to do so quickly. I have been dancing ever since I can remember myself so you can probably guess my enthusiasm when I saw the new releases at the Crossroads.

Dead Dollz sponsors the event and participates in collaboration with Astralia. Dead Dollz offers legwarmers, leggings, leotard and sweaters, all exclusively for Maitreya mesh body and available in many colors. Astralia offers a very cute skybox plus some decor for it, all gacha. Both releases are inspired by Fame. Don’t forget to grab the gift Dead Dollz also gives at the landing point, very cute for your gym’s decor. Have a look at the amazing video that has been released, featuring all items here.

Lybra sponsors and participates at the Project Seven event, with the Grunge Shirt. It is rigged mesh for Maitreya, Slink Physique/Hourglass and Belleza Isis/Freya, available in regular plain versions in 11 soft grungy color options but also printed ones as well. You can read more about it here.

That would be all for now, have a nice day/evening and remember to be kind to one another.

Moan

Yes, clothes are off again! Don’t blame me, blame the super amazing Evolove, that created the Moaning series poses for the new round of Expose event. Now can you imagine yourselves posing in them fully clothed? I’m just surprised I did put something on. I’m also glad my parents don’t read my blog. Ha ha.

I enjoy sexy photography in general. Erotica and artistic nudity always catch my attention. The human body is beautifully made and one could do wonders with it. Which is why I’m always impressed by the diverse and unique poses Evolove brings. The Expose event is now open and will stay open until the 27th of October.

Hair is from Alice Project, a previous FLF release. All arm/hands accessories are from Muka, apart from the rings that were also a FLF release from Plastik. The collar is new release from Tabou, which can be found at the new round of Kinky Event and the sexy corset is from CerberusXing (CX) and can be found at Whore Couture which is about to close doors.

That would be all for now lovely readers. Have a beautiful weekend and be kind to one another.

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.

Poncho

Not much going on in my RL lately, nothing worth mentioning anyways, apart from the regular every day drama and stress, so let’s just move straight to the post, shall we?

Evolove is certainly one of my favorite stores on SL. They’re mostly known as an established poses store but they do have a boutique as well, where one can find apparel and decor just as unique and beautiful as their poses are. I have the privilege to be a part of their team for few months now, and oh my, what an amazing team it is. From the store owners to their blogger manager and the rest of their bloggers, they have all made me feel so welcomed and loved since day one. They’re quite productive too. Their creations can be found in several events at the moment, such as The Liaison Collaborative, Tres Chic, Expose and Pose Lover & Friends Event, where the pose in this picture is currently at and one of my personal favorites for sure. I’ve mentioned in previous posts how poses are a very important part of photography. From creating a mood to showcasing a certain style and making a good picture in general, poses are the first thing I always work on. As soon as I have that figured out I can work on styling and everything else.

You might have also noticed by now, how I love my mesh heads. I sort of have this expensive habit of collecting them and usually wear different one on each post, but lately, I have to admit, I can’t take Dyana off of me. This face is so darn cute and pretty I just love looking at it. So I think she’s going to stay with us for a little while. Hehe.

Hair is from Rezology. Another very productive store, which lately has been working on mesh heads as well. First mesh head was scheduled to be released very soon but right now all hairstyles are being updated so complexity levels can be lowered. That should take around a month to do, so new hairstyles and mesh heads will be postponed until November/December. You can read more about the updates on their Facebook page here. The glasses are from ROWNE‘s actress gacha, a common one and available in 3 colors, gloves are from Real Evil, quite old release but one of my favorites and the fur poncho is from IAF (I Am Fashion) store which can now be found in the marketplace only, since the in world store closed. Last but not least, the legwarmers are from Zenith and can be found at the new round of Tres Chic, which is amazing!

That would be all for now, be nice, be kind to one another and catch you all next time.

Have a good day/night everyone.

Boudoir

 Among the new creations released in this round of On9, you will find a beautiful skybox made by the talented Victor Newchurch, available in 2 colors (red and white) and with land impact of 33 prims. Blogging a skybox is definitely quite interesting though. Personally I’ve never worked on skyboxes or houses before, I didn’t even own any land until only recently, so of course, I was challenged.

I had to ask a lot of people for their opinion on how they would blog a skybox, even the creator himself, only to realize there are no rules or preferences here. Just decorate it nicely and take a good picture in it. Being a perfectionist though made it hard for me. I knew I wouldn’t have any problem decorating it but showing the decor plus the whole skybox too, would be tricky. Multiple pictures is what I thought first. You can’t show it all in just one picture. Then I figured, people will be able to see they skybox in the vendor images NEWCHURCH took anyways, so let’s not stress about it too much. Be creative, try to showcase it nicely and have fun with it.

My main inspiration for this project had been the amazing gacha releases from Birdy for the Arcade. The idea was to create a boudoir and the beautiful release of the Secret Store for Collabor88 was the perfect fit for that. Adding to the whole decoration the creations by Glam Affair Home for the Chapter Four event plus Garbaggio decor from the Arcade too, made it all look just consistent and complete.

The skybox follows the industrial theme of this On9 round but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative differently with it. I’ve mentioned before how decor is not my thing but I have so much fun with it. It’s incredibly time consuming, even the credits alone take a while to make, but when you’re done and look back at what you’ve made, feels amazing.

I think every blogger should step out of their comfort zone every once in a while, experiment, try new, different things and styles, and maybe they’ll be surprised. I know this has helped me grow and become better as a blogger for sure. I hope you all enjoy this. I know I did.

Have a nice evening and a lovely week!

The World Is Yours…(I Stand For Peace)

“You can’t expect to see change if you never do anything differently”

The world is yours…the world is you and me and everyone on it. The world is beautiful, huge and so small at the same time. The world is also dying. Hatred, violence, racism, terrorism and catastrophes are examples only to begin with and actually, we’re all responsible. Mostly because we do nothing about it.

I have stopped watching the news ever since Greece went bankrupt. All that drama suffocated me, people were killing themselves out of desperation, others out of embarrassment as they had lost their jobs and couldn’t provide to their families and others just starved to death. It was a complete chaos. You would see homeless people everywhere in the streets and people turning against each other, even at their closest friends, only because they were still lucky enough to have a job.

So since I realized that all this awful situation brought me down, I decided I will shut it all down. I will try to think positive (even though my family was massively affected as well) and I will just help people in any way that I can. Of course, shutting yourself down is impossible. You might not watch the news but the news will get to you. Friends of mine were moving out of the country hoping for a better future, others started doing drug dealing or soliciting only to make 20 euros and drama was back into my life all over again. Then of course, looking at this globally, many countries have suffered before Greece and unfortunately, there are many to follow.

What the world is really suffering from is lack of solidarity. We’ve forgotten what is like to be human. We’ve forgotten that we’re supposed to help each other and be kind to one another. Then again, what is right for me, might be wrong for you. Disbelief and religion cause fanaticism, which leads to hatred and obsession, which lead to terrorism and extremism, which lead to thousands and thousands of people having lost their lives for nothing.

I’m still young and I want to have children one day. I don’t want to raise them in this world. I know I’m responsible as well for being ignorant when my friend was having problems, for voting for the wrong people to represent me in the parliament and for so many other reasons. I once read online “you can’t expect to see change if you never do anything differently”. It is so true. And it’s what I’ve been doing ever since. Things differently. We can change the world, we can be the change we want to see in others. We can set the example and we can start now.

I’m so privileged to be part of this big community of SL, to have met and socialized even worked with all these amazing artists that inspire me everyday and get to express myself through this platform. It’s something I’ve been doing for only 3 months and is very therapeutic. I’m also very happy to see how motivated and powerful this community is, which only makes me want to be part of it even more and make something good out of it. It is what keeps me going and if I manage to influence and inspire even one person only, I will be forever happy.

This is my addition to the I Stand For Peace challenge created by Good Cross. It’s just one picture and will only take you a few minutes. I’m looking forward to seeing each and every one of them in the group.

Thank you for taking the time to read this (if you’ve made it this far) and for bearing with my English. Greeks are famous for their noses and loud voices, not their fluency in foreign languages. Hehe.

Be good everyone.
