Tropical chill

Good morning world and happy Friday. There is a group on Flickr called “Photoshop Vandalized Photos”. I’m a member of it and I often add my pictures there, as I usually go nuts on Photoshop. We all know that I’m not an expert at PS and I’m, most of the times, experimenting. It’s one of the tips Daeberethwen Arbenlow had given me. Trial and error. Try on filters, layers, light leaks, photo plates or whatever and see what you like the most. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. The world’s future is not depending on the picture you’re going to post. Besides, it’s the only way you’ll learn.

My picture today is an example of that. It was a normal, colorful picture at first, that meant to showcase 22679’s new release, but I was feeling creative and this is what happened to it. So I will conveniently call this Art and move on. I guess you want to see what the decor stuff really look like though, so have a look here. All the rest is listed and credited below.

Eyes adrift

Good morning everyone! It’s going to be a quiet post today as I don’t have much to share with you, other than the usual grumpy comments about my work. But you’ve all heard them before so let’s move on to the stuff.

Today’s post features new Genesis Lab releases at Uber event. If you have been using the new 3.0 skin appliers, you’ve probably noticed on the hud, top right, a clear option. That will remove the eyebrows the skin comes with. Genesis Lab. bento heads are Omega compatible (only for tattoo and make up so far – read here for more info) so now you get more options when it comes to applying layers on them. Genesis released 3 types of eyebrows for you to choose from and some eyelashes and eyes as well. There is a demo available at the event, so make sure you check them out!

I’m wearing Sofie bento head in this picture, which is their newest release, a gacha rare, from the Epiphany and she’s not omega compatible (at least not yet) but all the previous ones are (Eva, Lena and Jane). Also, if you have Sofie and you want to trade it for a copy version, this is what you have to do:

1. Write a notecard to GenesisLab asking to exchange your Sofie head and include your SL name (your sign-in name).

2. Make sure you have the entire Sofie Head package into a folder or in the original box and ready to go. When Genesis Lab. contact you, they will check your package and get you your very own copy version of the head!

Good morning world! To be completely honest with you, this is a quickie post! If you’re paying attention to detail and have a good memory, you’ve probably noticed already that I’m wearing the same outfit I had on my Relatively Pink post. The hair is different of course, and the background. Which is basically what the post is about as well.

The hair is a new release by Tableau Vivant at Kustom9 and comes in two different versions, this and a shaved one on the side. If you zoom in on it, you can tell that I drew some hair strands on it. I know it’s amateur work but I’ve been enjoying playing with it so far. Don’t judge too hard, I’m still learning. And trust me the hair is gorgeous, didn’t need my strands, I only felt a little creative.

Also, as promised before, this picture’s zoomed in so you can finally see better the necklace by Kunglers from WLRP event. It’s available in more, different colors of course and it’s really beautiful! Last but not least, the backdrop is from MINIMAL, from their Epiphany gacha, a common and one of my favorite.

Flick on the red light

Good morning world! Guess who’s overslept and is definitely going to be late for work? Yes, me.

I thought this through and discovered that I always want to sleep more on Fridays. I will google this of course (same way I google everything) but I think it kind of makes sense. It’s the end of the week, you’re reluctant to go to work and you’re struggling to wake up. I also discovered that I’m a creature of habit. I already knew that, but I was hoping that would change as I’m growing older. I basically do the same thing every morning. Get out of bed, brush teeth, make breakfast, eat whilst checking on other blogs/pictures/posts etc, prepare my own post, post it and go to work. I’m trying to be a rebel though, only because I want to tell myself I broke the routine so I will usually change my breakfast, and then go “ha, in your face cereal!”.

But trying to think of a life without a schedule or a routine, I don’t think I would survive it. I think most people work that way. We need to know what’s going to happen in the near future so we can plan our lives/schedules accordingly. It does get boring after a while but what I usually do is, change the schedule a little bit. And even though I know I’m going to change something, I always surprise myself with what that would be. For example, I have orange juice instead of a smoothie. I drive myself to work but choose a different route for a change. I wear a blouse that I have never worn before to work. Maybe that will help you a little to feel like, today’s going to be different.

Today’s post is pretty minimal. Speaking of MINIMAL, I enjoyed his Epiphany backdrops a lot, one of them I’ve used for this picture. The top is by Addams. It’s a top that can change to a bra as well and will fit almost all of Addams-wear. Many colors and female mesh body sizes available too, all currently available at Collabor88. Tattoo is from Nanika, available in black and white colors, at the Cosmetic Fair.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day and be kind to one another.

See you all next time!

Minimal blush

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.

Mask off

I had a client yell at me at work yesterday. Not just yelled at – at some point he was screaming at me, for about 30 minutes. Security had to actually come over and remove him from the premises. And the worst part is, he was completely right. Due to bad customer service, he got upset and totally snapped. But he had good reason to complain and lose it. Was that the right way to do so? No, of course not. I’m not one of those people that function well under yelling and pressure. It basically ruined the rest of the day for me, but it also got me thinking. Recognizing your mistakes, realizing and owning them, might be hard to do, but actually makes you a better person. Helps you learn from your mistakes and prevent you from repeating them. Day ended nicely. No one got fired, no one got hurt. Apart from my pride.

truth

What does this have to do with my post today? Absolutely nothing. But it’s a nice opportunity to send a message to those willing to receive one. It’s OK to make mistakes. We’re only human. It’s important to own up to them, make things right (if possible) and don’t repeat them though.

This round of Uber takes us to Tokyo. If you haven’t been yet (to Uber, not Japan) you should know that you will find lots of goodies from many stores, all Tokyo inspired. And for a person like me, that likes to constantly change looks and challenge herself with new themes, this round was amazing. Quick mention to: the hair, which is new from TRUTH, includes the mask but it’s optional to wear it. There are two hair releases from TRUTH actually, the second one I’ll show in another post. The skin applier is new from Genesis Lab. Comes with a shape for Eva bento head (could work on the Lena one as well, but I haven’t tried it personally so not sure what that would look like) and combined with the skin applier, it gives you a beautiful Asian face.

truth1

The shoes are also from this Uber round by friday. Lovely platforms available in many colors. For the scene I used MINIMAL’s release at the event. It’s 4 (or 5? – not sure) backdrops and not gacha for a change. You can actually buy them separately.

That would be all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another. Oh, and if you get yelled at today, try to make happy thoughts and breathe. Really helps!

It’s been a while since the last time I rambled on here, hasn’t it? Today I won’t be rambling either, but at some point, I do have to – I’ve missed it. As you’ve probably noticed, I changed the name of the blog. I have changed the layout many times too. Blog name was originally “Do It Yourself”, a title we both came up with Jules, but since my beautiful bestie has started her own blog, I figured I’d change the title to something more personal. Exis-tence. What do you think?

I’m usually bored easily and constantly change everything in my life (well, not everything, but you know what I mean), therefore I can’t guarantee you that this title will be final, but for now, I’m liking it. If you have some cooler ideas for it, please let me know under the comments below.

Today’s post is another fun picture I made with my friend Rosita. No story behind it, no theme, no concept. Just posing, looking posh and pretty. Hehe.

I have been struggling a lot with SL lately. Real has been super busy, so by the time I get home from work, all I’m able to do is catch up on notices, blogs, flickrs, plurks – the world – and then I get sleepy and doze off. Hopefully I’ll catch up on my pictures this weekend.

Not much to share with you this morning, so I guess, no news, is good news…and let’s get to the stuff.

Lybra has been very productive this month. Participates in almost every event there is on SL at the moment. I’m wearing her release for the Crossroads event. It’s a bodysuit, for your Maitreya mesh body only and available in 12 colors.

lybra-wip3

The fur cape is from Coco, who never disappoints. Shoes are from N-core, hair is beautiful from Tram and the necklace is from Modern Couture from past On9 round (should be in the mainstore now).

lybra-wip2

The backdrop is a new build from Minimal and gacha for the new round of Chapter Four event. Pretty cool and perfect for photography. The owner and creator seems to be a great person too. I haven’t met him but I’ve had a small issue with the backdrops and he’s been very generous and helpful. I appreciate it Ors Quan, thank you.

That was quick, right? Okay, I have to go to work but I’ll see you all next time. Have a nice day/night everyone and be kind to one another.
