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.

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.

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.

Cookie

Cookie is a word that always sounded funny to my ears. Cookies are also delicious. I’ve been to London many times and if you have been as well, you’ve probably tasted the notorious Ben’s Cookies. That store on Oxford street in particular, probably remembers me still, after they sold out in one day. Last time I was there, I bought probably 100 of them and I came back to Greece giving those cookies to every person I know, simply because everyone has to taste them. I have been demanding for some Ben’s cookies from  Jules, since she’s in the UK, but my demand still hasn’t been fulfilled! I still have hope though! If you’re reading this and you’re British or live in the UK, please contact me for details and shipping info. He he…

The Annex participates in this round of Tres Chic with lingerie. It’s bras and panties, available for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies. There are four different textures for you to choose from, Cookie being the one I’m wearing in the picture. The socks are the exclusive item from Fri.Day for the Epiphany event and hair is from Rezology. Rezology will soon release mesh heads and I’m super excited about that. Last but not least, the skin applier is a new release from itGirls. Her name is Cleo, available for your Catwa heads only and she is gorgeous.

That would be all for now, see you all next time! Until then, be well and kind to one another.

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.

Relaxing at home…

Well I’m back after my week off and damn that week went so fast I can hardly believe it lol, I didn’t get done half of what I wanted to do but instead I did other things that have been lacking for the past few months,  shopping in real life, got myself a new phone, went out for lunches,  and lots of time relaxing catching up on tv shows, it’s been a great week.

I have missed my virtual life, blogging, my photography, seeing all the wonderful pictures on Flickr and Facebook and will be catching up with it all over the next day or two.  But a small blog to get me back into the swing of things, a picture of me relaxing in my new house, which is 75% decorated now woot, and what better way to relax but in the gorgeous sweater by Dead Dollz available at Uber, this is the type of clothes I love the best so I am excited for all the Autumn and Winter clothes coming out now.

Happy Monday everyone, it’s good to be back ♥

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!

Life is too short to wait…

Life is too short to wait, how true this is, life is to be embraced and lived to the fullest and that’s just what I always try to do.

I would just like to mention in today’s post one of my favourite sponsors #bubbles, not only does she make such love cute designs, this designer Candi truly cares about her customers and what they would like to see, I love that.

Her store is still fairly new but she’s already growing each day and has just recently started to do fatpacks of her designs one of which I am wearing today, it’s such a cute dress that comes in 8 colours, so check her store out, you won’t be disappointed I know I never am.

And what better way to showcase such a cute dress than the amazing pose by Luanes World available at the Pose Lover & Friends Event.

Happy Monday everyone ♥
