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 Paddington ladies

I have been doing a lot of collaborations lately and I have to admit, they’re fun! But they’re not easy to do. I’ve given this some thought and at least for me, when it comes to taking pictures there has to be one photographer who’s basically the boss. Yes I do like to boss people around, but that’s not what I mean in this case. If you want to make a specific picture, you imagine what everything is supposed to look like, don’t you? Where everything is going to be and which angle you’re going to shoot from so you can showcase some specific items or just because you like from a certain angle.

Can you imagine what happens when you have someone else to pose with you so you have two people to worry about? In the first case you would have to only think about where you would be or how you’re going to pose in the certain frame but with two or more persons it gets more difficult. Difficult means challenge to me though, so YAY!

Hara and I have been discussing about making a picture together for quite some time now and I was really looking forward to it. We did team up with Jules and Chloe for the Spice Girls picture she made but when we both got our hands on the new sweater ALT by Truth released at the mainstore, we knew the time had arrived for just the two of us. All we needed was a nice concept and scene for it.

alt2

We met one evening and started working on the scene for a while. Changed it multiple times until we finally agreed. It was ready. Thank you for tolerating me dear Hara! I had a wonderful time!

The sweater is available for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies and you can choose from many different colors/textures. This project has been great opportunity for me to also show you once again the hair TRUTH released same day with this sweater. Beautiful, right?

Last but not least, the shoes are from friday, currently available at Kustom 9. If you haven’t heard by now, friday’s semi-annual sale began last night at midnight SLT and will end on March 10th. If you’re a shoe lover like me, you’ll enjoy it for sure.

That would be all for now. Have a lovely day/night and see you all soon

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.

One of my favorite sports is snowboarding. I live in Athens where seeing snow is like finding water in the dessert. So a bunch of friends of mine and I, from all over Europe, gather up each year for a huge ski/snowboard trip extravaganza. Every time I’m on the mountain I’m like a kid in a candy store. Usually we travel around February, somewhere in central Europe but this time we’re going a bit early. Maybe because this time the destination is Iceland, where snow is something we shouldn’t worry about. I’m really excited, I won’t lie. I’m all packed and geared up, ready to conquer the peaks! He he, okay I’m not a pro but hey, I’m good! I’ve googled Iceland and I’m amazed with how beautiful it looks. Blue Lagoon is also something I’ve been looking forward to experience as well.

So, obviously, that means I will be away for a while. Like always, vacation will be over before I even realize and I will be back rambling to you all pretty soon. Until then, be well and kind to one another.

Hugs…

PS: Jules has been working non-stop on her blog as well. Hope you’ve all checked her work out  🙂

Chunky

Woot new month has arrived and I can officially say Christmas is next month, the countdown begins hehe.  Not much to say today so your safe from my rambling so I will just tell you about my gorgeous outfit, another one of my new favourites.   I’ve called today’s post chunky after the amazing Chunky Knit Cardigan by Aphorism I got recently, comes in many colours and the dress I got to go under it is also by Aphorism, I bought it at The Seasons Story which closed yesterday so I am guessing the outfit will be in mainstore soon.   The boots are by Ison and ones I had totally forgotten I had so yay me as I love them as you can change the colour of the socks or if you prefer no socks it has that option too.  The backdrop is by Pseudo and Gacha at SaNaRae at the moment.

Now I know I am seemingly using Backdrops in a few of my pictures lately, a lot of people do, does it make me lazy as it means I am not going out exploring and finding new and exciting locations, not in my opinion no,  I think for bloggers they are a wonderful tool for us to use and a big shout out to the wonderful creators of them.  Will they stop me going out an exploring?  Hell no I love to do that but I also love new things to use too, deciding which one would go better for which outfit I am blogging,  it also gives me more time to work on other things and in my book that can only be a good thing.

Guess I had more to say than I thought….Have a great day everyone ♥

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.

TGIF!!! Today I’m feeling cute! Maybe it’s the cute bowtie from Le Coq D’or or maybe it’s the weather that’s getting warmer and warmer…! Speaking of this bowtie, it’s the latest creation of Olikato, which you can find at new round of The Showroom that opens tonight! It comes in 14 different colors (including a rare one with a hud). Has 2 versions, one where the strap is shown and one where it’s hidden. Apart from the ordinary way, if you’re creative enough, you can wear it as hair accessory, as an armband, bracelet or even resize it and make it a ring! Haha!  Happy Shopping and good luck! : )
