A Spring expedition

Saturday’s here and the mood is back to being amazing again. I can’t ramble, and trust me, it’s for the best, I don’t have much to say this morning. Let’s just move on to the stuff. Oh, let me just say, that, this particular one, gave me a hard time. It could be exhaustion, it could be lack of concentration (yes, it’s so convenient to blame you Alexa for IMing me constantly, when I needed to focus, ha ha), but it took me probably 2 hours to make, when, in any other case, I’d give it an hour tops! That being said, you have to like it. Thank you!

So, the post features one of the releases from 22769 ~ [bauwerk] for Shiny Shabby. It’s a regular release (I mean, not a gacha one) and it’s a beautiful single room build with a land impact of 30 prims. Apart from that you can also get a rug and some decoration bushes and a buddha! There is a mini model displayed at the booth in the event and a full size one at the demo platform. At the same event you can also check out Lybra’s dress. Maitreya only, available in more than 10 colors and the lace is optional – hud controlled. The scene completed [ keke ]’s new mainstore releases. First one of them is a drawer, spring one, with flowers coming out of it. Super cute. Second one is the gustavian console – table. Both of these items are available in 3 different colors. [ keke ] also released some flowers in the previous month. They come in 5 colors. And third release, is some spring sprouts, which are out for the Mad Easter Egg Hunt at her mainstore.

Here’s some more info for the hunt:

“The Mad Easter Egg Hunt is an gridwide hunt with hidden prices, achievements, rewards and much more. 
How to hunt? 
The madness begins on the 4th of April when hidden Easter Eggs start sending their signal from all over the grid to our website. They are so eggcited to be found by you! We will equip you with a special Egg finder HUD and off you’ll go… 
Here’s the fun part! When you find an egg, you will earn points that you can exchange for awesome exclusive prizes. The more eggs you find, the more prizes you’ll receive. Some eggs could even give super secret instant prizes! 
That’s not all though. With the points you’ll get on our leaderboard, where top 3 Egg Hunters will be rewarded 500L daily!”

Good morning peeps. Do you remember my post where I was happy about the weather and how it’s always nice, warm and sunny? Well, forget it. I totally jinxed it – it’s like the universe read my post and said “no way lady, I’m gonna show you now”. It rained a lot last night and it’s pretty cold this morning. Weather is a huge factor on my mood swings and determines how easily I’ll get out of the bed in the morning. This morning has been a challenge.

Maybe that’s probably why I decided to cover up Lybra’s new release with this coat from COCO. The colors work together perfectly too – I love this blush color tone. The outfit is available for Maitreya only and hud driven (seperate hud for the bra) available now at Uber. Hair is new from Tableau Vivant, currently available at the Project Seven. There are two hairstyles for you to grab, this is the short and kind of elegant, one.

That’s all for now guys, I have to get ready for work. It’s really hard pretending to go to work with a smile every day, isn’t it? Hehe. Have a good day/night and be kind to one another.

The day went by pretty smoothly today. Even though I spent most of it Skyping with Jules, I managed to get a lot of work done. That feeling of completion makes me feel great. You know what I’m talking about. That moment when you finally finish something you’ve been working on, lean back and say to yourself “I did it”. To be completely honest with you, I was in a hurry today. I wanted to get everything done and leave only a few tasks for tomorrow, as it’s a bank holiday on Monday in Greece and I want to make it an extra long weekend.

I have no specific plans yet, but even the idea of not working for three days is enough to make me happy. Although, it’s me we’re talking about. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up spending it in bed (which is okay, I need to catch up on my sleep) and then take a lot of pictures on SL. But oh well. We shall see.

It’s almost midnight for me though, so let’s get to today’s post which features a bunch of new stuff. Let’s start with the gown I have on, which is by Lybra and currently available at Shiny Shabby. Did you know Lybra updated her color huds? Yes, you get more options now. She’s also rebuilding her mainstore but it’s not ready yet. At the same event you can check the new gacha from PUMEC. It consists of skin appliers for Catwa heads (rare & commons), mesh ears and mesh eyes. Now if you’re an attention freak like me, you probably noticed that my skin, eyes and ears are different than the ones on the close up picture. Yes, check again. Now, I want to say I did that on purpose, but I’m afraid that’s a lie. Truth is I got so excited with the skin applier (pretty much same way I react every time I try a new applier on my mesh/bento heads), I completely forgot about the rest of the items in the gacha.

thor3

The skin appliers come with a shape as well, but for this one I tried something different. This is Catwa’s Catya head but on Catwa’s Kimberly default shape. Looks pretty cute, right? Anyways, you can have a better look at the gacha key here. The hairbase I have on is from Tableau Vivant, currently available at the Enchantment. Hair is also by Tableau Vivant, but at Kustom9. I know, you have a lot of teleporting to do.

thor

And of course the scene I created is from THOR’s new release for Collabor88. I have mentioned before how much I love THOR’s work and how he never stops to amaze me. He has a certain style in his creations that just agrees with me. From this set, I pick the book of fairy tales as my favorite – It’s the one behind the tea, on the table. It has butterflies coming out of it. I mean, Come On!

That would be all for now people. Hope you’re having a great day/night! I’ll see you all next time.

Happy Valentine’s day! Today’s post is definitely not a Valentine’s post. I’m not in the mood but I encourage everyone to celebrate their butts off. I’m expecting to see a lot of hearts, pink and red stuff and love quotes. I’m prepared, so bring it on! hehe. In the meantime, you know I love to be challenged. I love to be creative as well. It is great fun for me to step out of my comfort zone and work on something different, something that is not usually what I do or feel comfortable doing. Probably because, in this case, I use my mind to actually come up with something nice, to create a theme for my picture but, at the same time, be able to recognise me and my work when I look at it.

Lybra participates in the new round of The Gacha Garden this month, with a Shinobi gacha. I liked the concept of it, so there you go. Had I been better in Photoshop, I would have also drawn some blood stains or something, make it look more realistic, but with my skill set, that would probably take me a week!

That’s all for now peeps. Have a nice day/night and I’ll see you all next time.

Lately, I’m feeling that all I’m talking about in my blog posts is how miserable and tired I am from work and how I can never take a break. Well, it is true but there’s no reason to share my misery every day with you. Thinking of my blog as my journal too, I often miss the point and talk about what bothers or affects me every day, even though some people might not be interested in reading about that at all. There are bigger issues to deal with in the world, than a spoiled unhappy little princess, hehe…

through-the-shadows

Every time I’m down or feeling blue, I get on my iPad and watch bloopers on YouTube. I have probably watched bloopers from the Friends series about 100 times. Always makes me laugh and distracts me. Blogging also distracts me. I focus on taking the picture(s) and can’t think of anything else. It’s fair to assume that there is a therapeutic side of it.

through-the-shadows1

 So next time you’re in-world and feeling bored,  play with poses, clothes, mix and match, try on windlights and shadows (which usually takes me forever) and then take a bunch of pictures, only to end up not knowing which ones you like the best. It’s what I always do. Even if you don’t want to spend any money, you can always try on demos!

Hello lovely people. Friday is finally here. Are you excited? I am, even though today won’t be any different from previous days. It’s very interesting how we get joy from small, simple things like, being one day away from the weekend or when your favorite magazine is released or you get a message from a special someone. Yes, I said we. I know I’m quirky but I’m sure I’m not the only one, he he.

moneymaker2

Today’s post features a bunch of new releases. Lybra’s outfit for Shiny Shabby, Little bones’ hair, Genesis Lab’s skin for Eva bento head and Nanika’s appliers. It has been a very bad month for me, shopping-wise. I spent way too much money and I blame all these new wonderful designs. I am confident that I will eventually use everything in pictures one day but I really need to take it easy with shopping. If you have any advice on how to make me stop, please let me know.

That would be all for now. Hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend ahead of you. Be kind to one another!

Dammit, is it only Tuesday yet? Ugh, time does not fly when you want to, right? Whining about it won’t help speed it up either so I’ll just accept it. I realized, last night, that this has probably been the most boring January of my life. I basically spent the whole month working my ass off. Doesn’t sound much fun, does it? Well, it’s not fun at all. So much for committing to my New Year’s resolutions but, hey, I still have 11 months to go.

I enjoyed bringing back Dyana mesh head for this post. I do like all the new bento heads but I also miss the old ones. The gown is a new release from LYBRA for the Stormwood Hills event, which is about to end so you have to hurry. Hair, necklace and gloves are all past releases, so make sure you check the credits below for more information.

The past few days have been super crazy long and busy. Which is exactly why I won’t ramble as always. In the mood I’m in, bitching is all I can offer right now. Hehe. Just want to mention my friend Rosita, for posing with me for this picture. She’s crazy which makes her perfect! Also quick mention to the new releases from Lybra and Panavia. Skin is new from ItGirls too but you will see it clearly in a portrait I’ll make for it soon. Everything is credited below.

The days before New Year’s have proved to be hectic. Work is crazy, I’m so behind on everything I’m supposed to do before Saturday, yet my will to take/make/post pictures never stops. I guess it’s some kind of therapy during the stressful times and as long as it’s not becoming a chore, I’m not planning to stop. That probably explains my constant blogging lately although I could use a few more hours of sleep. Otherwise I will need tons of make up on Saturday night. He he.

lybra-3-new

This post features Lybra’s new release for Shiny Shabby. It’s a corset with panties, both can be worn separately, for Maitreya mesh body only and in twelve colors. The skirt can be removed too. Very pretty. Gloves are from Just Design and can be found at Uber.

So are the mask and lipsticks for the new Genesis Lab bento head. I’m really liking this head and the shapes I’ve created with it. Pumec has made a skin applier for it and it’s currently at Tres Chic which includes shape for the head as well. Try a demo and see for yourselves.

Last but not least, the tattoo is from Speakeasy, gacha, at the Fantasy Collective. Many options there to meet all styles. That would be all for now lovely people. 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!
