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.

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?

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.

Wavering harmony

I know, I know it’s the weekend, I’ve promised to shut my mouth in the weekends, but I can’t be completely silent. I’m Greek and I’m a woman. Trust me, many have tried, but all have failed.  I will be specific and to the point though. This post was mostly about decor but I figured, since I liked it, I would jump in and photobomb it. So since I did, I have to make a quick mention to the new skin applier for Lelutka’s Simone bento head by ItGirls which is currently at Uber. The outfit is new from N-Uno at WLRP event.

The scene features the new release by Newchurch, currently at Draftsman event (which ends soon, so you have to hurry) and a bunch of other releases by Serenity Style, Soy, Keke and others, that I thought they complimented the chaise lounge beautifully.  Check credits below for more details.

Rendez-Vous

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. A quick mention to the handsome Tyler De’Leon for posing with me. It’s always fun taking pictures with him.

I’m E X H A U S T E D! What a day today?!?! Mondays suck by definition, you know, only because they’re Mondays, but especially today, everything went wrong. Ughh! So so glad it’s finally over and I will be going to bed soon so I can get rid of this day as soon as possible! Hope yours was better than mine.

Before bed time though I had to share some new releases with you. Let’s start with decor for this one. The couch is the newest release from Newchurch. Features separately-changeable pillow textures and cushion colors via menu. It is also available with family-friendly PG or Adult animation sets. As with all Newchurch furniture, these pieces are modifiable, so you can resize and tint as desired and with land impact of 6 prims. You can have a better look at it here.

Outfit from Me Sew Sexy store, Tattoo from Nanika, Glasses from The Oak and most of the decor in the picture are all new releases from the new round of On9 that opened only a few days ago. If you haven’t visited yet, you’re missing out on this round for sure.

That’s all for now lovelies, I really need to go to bed before I start yelling at my neighbors. Yes, I’m Greek and I got a temper. And my neighbors are used to me and love me. He he. Have a nice day/night everyone and I’ll see you all next time.

Posh

This post is dedicated to my buddy Tyler De’Leon. Perhaps, you remember him from my The Sub post. What you probably don’t know yet, is that Tyler now has his own poses store called Hedon. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re all thinking, “Great, another poses store”, but what you may forget is that each and every poses creator, put their own personal touch and style in their poses. Their work reflects their personality, their artistry and their creativity.

Hedon is Greek for pleasure. And in this case, this is what Tyler aims for. I’m quite confident that you won’t see him ever making picnic or shopping poses. You’ll see him doing the impossible and the unusual, trying new things and ideas. Have a look at his growing store on the marketplace and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

The pose for this post was my idea. I’ve been wanting to make a pose like this for a while and of course Tyler was the first person I thought of. I sent him the picture I had found online and, no joke, he made it in five minutes. Now, I’m not sure whether he normally does custom work or not, but I’m glad he did it for me. The pose is called Posh for the obvious reasons. He he. It will soon be available on the marketplace so make sure you check it out.

That would be all for now. Have a great day/night and see you all next time.
