State of mind

Good morning world. It’s going to be a quick post today as I have to leave the house super early this morning. Well, who am I kidding, I’m already late. But let’s keep this between us. I’ve been told that I’m a shame to all the punctual and obsessively proper Virgos out there. So let’s not make it worse.

Have a look at the credits below for a list of everything used in the picture.

Paris, Je t’aime

Hello world! Everyone had a nice weekend? I did, I can’t complain. I have managed to work on a couple of pictures I’ve been meaning to, so hopefully I’ll edit them the next few days and share with you as soon as possible.

Tonight, the destination is Paris. 6th Republic takes us to Europe  and I figured it was about time we traveled to a new destination. We’ve already been to Hamburg, Cornwall, Santorini and Genoa. Have a look at the credits below for a detailed list of the items used and make sure you visit the event before it ends on Saturday. You won’t be disappointed.

…back to Santorini

Good morning world! I usually start my posts with a few random, often irrelevant, stuff about me and my boring life, but today, I figured I’d do the opposite. I will start with the items in the picture and then about me. I’m such a rebel, I know!

So you’ve probably been to the anniversary round of 6th Republic by now, right? Isn’t it amazing? Merak participates with a whole set named Eva. It’s a build, inspired by the houses at Santorini and you can also find a bed, pots and a crate as decor items. It’s simply beautiful. The rest of the decorations are from Krescendo’s gacha release, also at the 6th Republic, which is inspired by Lisbon but still worked great with this one. You will also see some stuff from Artisan Fantasy kitchen collection and some CMYK and anhelo additions to it as well. Have a look at the credits for a detailed list of the items used.

The dress I’m wearing is new from The Annex and currently at The Liaison Collaborative and the hair is from Exile at Collabor88. I, again, drew some hair strands to it. There was no need for that, the hair is gorgeous but I’m addicted.

Now about the real stuff. The minute I saw this new release of Merak I was psyched. I don’t blog for Merak and I have never met the owner but she named her set “Eva” which is my real name and it’s inspired from Santorini, which is where I come from. Coincidence? Maybe! But I’m a little princess so I choose to believe she designed it especially for me. He he. Okay, I’m obviously kidding but I now know this is going to become a permanent build on my platform. I just loved it that much. It brought back so many memories and inspired me to try and create the whole island look with the beautiful colors and the summer breeze. If you’ve been to Santorini before, you’ll recognize the bougainvillea tree in the picture, which you will find all over the islands in Greece and I figured it’s a necessary addition to the picture. If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend it!

Shoeless in Hamburg

Good morning everybody! It’s the weekend and I know I’m not supposed to ramble but this time I have to! 6th Republic is back and I can’t just ignore that. I’m incredibly honored to have been chosen to cover the event, so get ready for many many pictures this month.

If you’re not familiar with it already, the event is bi-annual, it’s about decor except from this round, though, where you will also get some fashion as well. The theme for this 2nd anniversary round is Destination: Europe, so all designers have been inspired by their favorite places in the continent. I have seen some Athens and Santorini releases so far and I’m very very excited!

The layout of the sim is the same as the previous round, perfectly decorated as always (I loved the “memories” section at the sim), with Jay‘s amazing windlight and will open for you tonight at 12pm SLT. You can have a look here for more details about the event and all the participating stores.

My first post for the event will be about Hamburg! I have mentioned before how 22679 constantly challenge me as a blogger with their work. This time they almost had me! They created “The Speicherstadt Hamburg”, which I had to google myself as I have never been to Hamburg yet, sadly. The build is incredible, so real-life looking and so big as well! But size, sometimes, does matter, so I can’t imagine making something like this, in a smaller size – it wouldn’t make sense I guess. You can have a look for more details about the build here, to give you a better idea of what it is.

The shoes are from Essenz, also at the 6th Republic. They’re wearable of course but you can also rez them as decor, in 3 different options. Pretty cool!

So guys, I don’t know how you’ll be spending your night/noon, whatever timezone you’re on, but make sure you visit the event as it will remain open for only 2 weeks and you might want to hurry!

Flick on the red light

Good morning world! Guess who’s overslept and is definitely going to be late for work? Yes, me.

I thought this through and discovered that I always want to sleep more on Fridays. I will google this of course (same way I google everything) but I think it kind of makes sense. It’s the end of the week, you’re reluctant to go to work and you’re struggling to wake up. I also discovered that I’m a creature of habit. I already knew that, but I was hoping that would change as I’m growing older. I basically do the same thing every morning. Get out of bed, brush teeth, make breakfast, eat whilst checking on other blogs/pictures/posts etc, prepare my own post, post it and go to work. I’m trying to be a rebel though, only because I want to tell myself I broke the routine so I will usually change my breakfast, and then go “ha, in your face cereal!”.

But trying to think of a life without a schedule or a routine, I don’t think I would survive it. I think most people work that way. We need to know what’s going to happen in the near future so we can plan our lives/schedules accordingly. It does get boring after a while but what I usually do is, change the schedule a little bit. And even though I know I’m going to change something, I always surprise myself with what that would be. For example, I have orange juice instead of a smoothie. I drive myself to work but choose a different route for a change. I wear a blouse that I have never worn before to work. Maybe that will help you a little to feel like, today’s going to be different.

RED ILLUSION

Today’s post is pretty minimal. Speaking of MINIMAL, I enjoyed his Epiphany backdrops a lot, one of them I’ve used for this picture. The top is by Addams. It’s a top that can change to a bra as well and will fit almost all of Addams-wear. Many colors and female mesh body sizes available too, all currently available at Collabor88. Tattoo is from Nanika, available in black and white colors, at the Cosmetic Fair.

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

See you all next time!

If you follow me on Plurk, you probably saw my post last night about these new Addams leggings, asking for a butt shot. Well here it is. I also said that I’m trying to behave and be “proper” but I constantly fail. Oh well.

trainer_final

This round of Collabor88 is all about fitness. Kind of like my New Year’s resolution. Get healthier, exercise, no pain no gain and other cute motivational quotes like that. I did manage to meditate and exercise a little on SL, now it’s time to do that in RL as well. I am positive.

trainer2

A few words about the products: Hair is new from Exile, really cute and reminded me a lot of Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft ponytail. Leggings and shoes are new from Addams, in so many different textures/colors I don’t even remember now. The armband is from Astralia and the whole decor is from Collabor88 as well. You can find everything listed in the credits below.

I guess this is one of the moments when you’re supposed to say “It’s not what it looks like” but that is not the case with this picture. He he. Don’t judge!

First of all,  isn’t creativity, part of being a blogger? Coming up with new, mainstream ideas in order to showcase specific products etc? Second of all, I’m a big girl and my dad doesn’t read my blog so I can get away with it unless one of you tells him!

So, ladies focus on the shorts that perfectly cover the buttocks and the boots that so sexily caress the legs. They are new releases from Addams, found at the mainstore and as always, you can find them in many different colors and they can fit all your mesh bodies. You could also focus on the hot man in the picture, Jake, who has willingly dropped his pants for the picture. Yes, he’s single – not sure if he’s looking – but you never know. Thank you for the help hunni.

The top is a scarf, beautifully wrapped around the body from Vinyl at current round of Uber. Tattoo is a limited release from Speakeasy, started with 150 copies, so you might want to hurry before it runs out. The pose is from Exposeur, which is, without a doubt, one of my favorite pose and prop stores in the grid.

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

Corky

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I surely had a good one. Spent the day with family and friends, I ate and drank a lot and managed to catch up on my sleep too. Mission accomplished so far. I’m back to work tomorrow but I do feel better.

Since it’s the holidays I had to make this quick post for you all to see, in case you’re trying to find gifts for your friends. Giftcards are always a great option but THOR made a game that is worth having a look at.

You can buy it in the marketplace as well, but THOR has rezzed it at the entrance of his mainstore so you can all demo it.

corky

So here’s how it works (copying THOR’S Notecard):

  1. Rez the Set On Ground (total prim with the Bricks Wall 7 Prims Land Impact  / 3 prims without the Wall)
  2. Mandatory to play the Game are:
    a)..::THOR::.. Pop Corky Game (Giver)
    b)..::THOR::.. Pop Corky Game (Barrel)
  3. Touch the Giver to deliver the Thrower [ ..::THOR::.. Bottle Cap Thrower (wear-me!) ]
  4. Accept it and wear as is or add it (worn on right hand)
  5. Once worn the system will log you automatically to the Game Server, the chat will announce the login.
  6. You have two Game Modes, you can select these clicking the barrel, touching the barrel will display a menu:
    a)Wild Mode: no turns, just throw the corks, the first player that reaches the target point wins.
    b)Turns Mode : Starting from the 1st logged player all player will throw and following the login order. The 1st player that at the end of the turns reaches the target point wins.
  7. Hover Text on the barrel will display the player points and turn.
  8. Go Mouselook and hold left mouse button to charge throw power. Min Power is 1, Max power is 12. Avatar will play a “charge” animation, point the Crosshair in the desired position, Avatar arms will be in “aiming position”, Upon the right hand you will see the |||||||||||| increasing till the maximum allowed (12). Of course you can release the hold before it reaches the Max to launch the corks at lower speed. Once the left mouse button is release, the avatar will play a throw animation, throwing the cork. While flying the cork will leave a trail (it will vanish in 7 seconds) to allow the players to see the  the ballistic trajectory, and adjust the aim in the following shots.
    //////////////////  Other Options  //////////////////
    1. Touch the Barrel for menu (just logged player will be able to display a menu)
    a) Select the Target Hit Point : 50 or 100
    b) Select : Reset to Reset the game
    (Game will store anyway the game mode set in his long term memory)

Hope you like it and have fun!

The Container

 So far, October doesn’t seem to be that great, but maybe it is too soon to tell. Do you find yourself complaining about how busy you get, as much as I do? Or how there is so little time left to do anything you want or need to? I wonder sometimes how different my life would be if my day had 36 hours in it. I’m quite sure I’d still have no time left.

October started with themed events: Salem, the Nightmare and Memento Mori. If you are into Halloween, and role-playing in general, you will not be disappointed. On Tuesday, We Love Roleplay also opens, and as always, it’s going to be a great round. I have the privilege to be part of the team now and had a quick peek at the new releases. Trust me, you will like it.

So let’s talk a little about some of them, shall we? The skin applier I’m wearing is from alterego and for Catwa heads only. There are five different tones for you to choose from, Sage is the one I have on. Bodysuit is from Pucca Firecaster Creations and available only for Belleza and Slink mesh bodies. Also, you get the option to wear it with or without pants. A hud is included that allows you to change colors and textures. Eyes are a new release from La Boheme and called Vampyr for obvious reasons. There will be 10 different options, classic avatar eyes, modifiable mesh and mesh eyes with materials.

Last but not least the cell is from Poseidon for The Nightmare event by Gryphon Vendetta. It is incredible. Has 20 unique, custom poses plus haunting animations. Animated texture, flickering light effects, atmospheric lighting and land impact of 28 prims. I really loved it.

That would be all for now. Have a good day/night and be kind to one another.

Well Friday has finally arrived, even though the days fly by and there don’t seem enough hours in a day, this week has felt like a hell of a long week so I am thankful for the weekend’s arrival.   The wine is chilling, I plan on visiting a DJ friend online to listen to hear weekly Trance set and for me the weekend starts here.

Today’s post is one I am pretty proud of, I visited The Outer Garden as recommended by Strawberry Singh recently in her amazing post and believe me I was not disappointed, you seriously feel you’ve walked into somewhere magical, it just felt so peaceful and calm and exactly what I needed after a pretty stressful week.   If you haven’t checked it out yet you don’t know you’re your missing, my compliments go to the designers and owners of the Sim for such a wonderful place and for sharing it with us all to explore.

My gorgeous white Cassandra outfit by Dead Dollz a gift from my bestie and partner in crime Exis recently when she visited Collabor88 complimented the picturesque sim wonderfully so much so that I just wanted to take a picture and share with you all.

Happy Friday Everyone ♥

Having hope will give you courage
