Beyond the open door

Hello world. Hope everyone’s having a nice weekend. Mine is about to end and it hasn’t been productive at all. I had so many things planned, blogwise at least, but sometimes, RL happens. Anyways, rambling starts again tomorrow so until then, have a great one and be kind to one another.

PS: I used a different technique to take and edit this picture, which I’m not entirely happy with, but I think it has potential. We shall see soon.

Bloom

Good morning world! Spring is in the air. Feeling it yet? It’s a beautiful day today and how could it not be, I’m off work. The weather is amazing and most people have left the city for the holidays, so it’s super quiet, which is perfect.

You’re about to feel the air of Spring on SL for sure, because Bloom is finally open. Bloom is created by Prism Events, that are also responsible for Salem and Tannenbaum and promises to bring color to your SL lives. There are over 100 brands in the event which means that a)you will need to spend sometime to go through them all and b)it’s impossible not to find something you’ll like. Luckily, the sim is beautifully designed and quite easy to navigate. All stalls are around you as you land at the Springtime Market, where you can grab all regular releases and then there is a path with trees on each side (basically looks like a forest) for the gacha machines. You will be tempted to pose and take a picture there.

My post today features a bunch of the goodies you’ll find there, so take a minute (or two) and read the credits carefully. Some are gacha, others not. I’m covering the event so I’ll bring you more pictures soon, hopefully good ones!

I think that would be all for now peeps. It’s the weekend, so remember our deal. I don’t ramble – you are happy readers. Have a lovely day and be kind to one another. See you all next time.

A Touch Of White

Guess who’s back?! Me!

It’s been 19 days since I last took a picture and a little less since I last posted one. I was starting to forget what that is like.

For those that haven’t been following my personal troubles, my computer died on me Monday, 13th of March. I was getting the Blue Screen of Death, making it impossible to do anything on my computer, since it was restarting randomly by itself. A lot of people had a look at it, only to let me know 1 week later that the CPU was falty and had to replaced. I sent it back to Intel and got replaced 1 day later (impressive, right?). But it’s been a while and I feel a bit rusty so consider this one a warm up!

Of course I’ve missed the deadlines of many event releases but I’m going to catch up as soon as possible. On this “forced” break that I took, I have had quite an experience in SL, which I’m going to share with you soon in my future posts.

It’s Saturday, so rambling isn’t allowed, remember?

A WHITE MESS

Quick mention to the stuff: New hair from Tableau Vivant, 3 new add-ons plus hairbases for Lelutka bento heads and new shoes from friday, all at Kustom9. Decor is a mix of various brands. Some of them are from the Arcade which ended only yesterday so the machines should be soon placed back in their mainstores.

That’s all for now folks! See you all next time. Have a nice day.

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.

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.

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 finally got home from work, I’m posting this and then I need to start packing as soon as possible. I need to be at the airport in a few hours and even though I’m a Virgo (insanely organized, neat and with huge OCD issues) I still manage to make a mess out of everything and almost always, be late. To prove my point, right now, my bed is covered with clothes and things I want to take with me. I don’t know how you all pack your luggage, but what I do is very simple. Take everything out of the closet, then staring at them for a few minutes and then throwing them all in the suitcase. Of course folded and according to color. That should take me a couple of hours at least. Then I need to make the standard passport/wallet/I.D. and things-you-must-not-forget check and I’m good to go. Of course, as soon as I’m in the car, I start wondering if I packed this and that, driving myself crazy, until I reach the airport and realize that it’s now too late to go back and check. Yes, I told you I have issues…! He he.

The past three days I made 6-7 pictures as I wanted to show everything before I leave for Paris. It exhausted me though. I can’t say I’m not relieved that I will put the camera down and won’t go online for a few days. Will I miss this? Hell yeah, but right now I think my mind needs to rest. I know I will be back before I realize and vacation days usually come by dramatically fast, but I don’t care. Even being at the airport excites me. The love I have for airports is another issue which we can dwell on another post.

So bottom line is, I’ll be gone for a few days but please know that I will think about you all …(well probably not, but can you blame me? It’s Paris! lol). I can relax knowing that my beautiful, awesome bestie Jules will keep the blog busy with her amazing posts anyways.

So, a few words for this picture are needed. My main goal for this one was to showcase the beautiful creations by my friend THOR for the Shiny Shabby round. What amazes me most about THOR is the fact that, even though I’m not a decor blogger, he still treats me like I am and in fact, a very good one. That makes me want to work harder on his products and make him proud. Also, I love how easily it is to coordinate his designs with others and make a beautiful scene in only a few minutes. Of course I had the help of my friend Cocolinox Decuir once again. No need to ramble any more, you can have a better look at the rest of the stuff in the credits below!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and see you all soon! Until then be well and kind to one another…
