The Magic Maker

Good morning world! So, I got some news! I’m finally taking some time off. Don’t ask me how I managed to escape from work, I still can’t believe it. I’ve turned off my phone so they won’t be able to find me and I’m going to be away and fabulous.

Actually, the reason I’m leaving is work. I’m going to a conference in London but I’ve managed to add a few more days and see some friends there. It’s not the first time I’d be going to London so I don’t have much sight seeing to do but you know what they say; it’s not the destination that matters.

I will be back in a couple of weeks, hopefully all rested and ready to spam you with my posts again. Until then, I hope you will all behave and miss me terribly!

PS: Make sure you read the credits today. You’d be surprised with how many of the items used in this picture are group gifts!

Shine brighter

“Happy girls shine brighter”

Good morning! It’s Thursday, so we’re almost there! That’s what I keep telling myself and keeps me going recently! It’s been very cold in Athens lately (surprised?) so getting out of bed has been a challenge. Not to mention dressing up and going to work. I just want to stay in my jammies, eat cereal and watch TV. But, I do prefer this weather during Christmas holidays, so I’ll just zip it.

Today’s post was so much fun to make. It’s been so long since I last did a collaboration with my bestie, Julie. In fact, I can’t even remember when the last time was. She probably does, she’s good at that. We talk and communicate everyday yet we hadn’t seen each other inworld for a while! Now if you’ve been following my blog from its early days, you probably know by now that Julie and I used to share it, we started it together, she helped me a great deal to set it up and she’s the one that motivated me to do so. Then she made her own blog (if you’re not following her yet, now’s the time to do it) but kept supporting me constantly still. Also, you probably know (I think I’ve mentioned it before) that she doesn’t like it when people call her Julie (her name is Jules) but, hey, I get a free pass, I’ve known her for years! She also doesn’t like tea. And she’s British. Yeah, she’s weird. No wonder we’ve made such good friends.

Anyways, enough rambling, I need to go to work. Julie, I love you and was great working with you on a picture again. Please remind me to do this more often!

Blending in to stand out

Good morning world! How’s your week going so far? It’s only Tuesday, I know, but it feels a little like a Thursday…no? I don’t have much to share with you this morning, other than the fact that today’s picture is still a WIP. And I don’t mean that I’m going to continue editing it and re-post it. I mean that I was working on it using different methods than I usually do, I didn’t have anything specific in mind and I didn’t know where or when to stop. I did stop when I felt that it was edited enough. And between you and me, I don’t really love it but then again, that’s the case with pretty much most of the pictures I post. Besides, you have to try out new methods, no?

Anyways, it features a couple of new stuff from current round of Collabor88 along with the new backdrop Chris Morrisey recently released. You can’t really see it in this shot so stay tuned for a future post. In the meantime you can have a better look at it by clicking on the credits below.

Hello peeps. I’d love to stick around and share my latest with you but I can’t, I’m on a tight time budget. I just want to say it’s Monday the 30th, which means, it’s a Monday, so bleh but also there’s only one more day to go and November arrives. This month has been challenging on many levels for me so, goodbye October, so long pumpkins and Halloween stuff. No offence to all you Halloween lovers out there but that’s not my thing at all.

New stuff from Addams and HAIKEI today, so have a look below for all the deets.

Good morning world! I don’t have much to share with you today so, be thankful, it’s going to be a quiet one. I’m probably burnt out, trying to figure out a name for my post today – it took a while! I swear, sometimes it gets really really challenging. And I wish you could all read Greek because, in that case, things would be so much easier. If I can ramble that easily in English you can imagine my rambling in Greek.

Today’s post features the newest release(s) by Addams. They can all be purchased separately but look so good when worn together. There are a few options on how to wear the outfit so you’ll have a blast. All be found at the mainstore in more colors than I can name. The hair is the new gift TRUTH sent to his VIP group. If you’re not a member yet, you’re missing out.

Oh! And in case you didn’t know, Addams will be opening up blogger applications very soon. So, good luck to everyone in advance.

Indoorsy

Good morning world. It’s going to be super hot in Athens today. According to the forecast, the temperature will reach 44C degrees (111F for the Americans) so if I don’t make it and the heat finally kills me, I would like to say that I love you all and that I leave all my millions of shoes to Julie. The rest of my items will be auctioned or something. Ok, jokes aside, It’s not new to us to get temperatures like this but it’s a too soon. I don’t even want to imagine what it’s going to be like in July.

Anyways, today’s post features a bunch of new and almost new stuff. The romper I’m wearing is from Addams, a mainstore release and super lovely. The hair is from tram, currently available at Uber and the sandals are from Friday, super cute, available in many colors at Kustom9. This certain look is definitely one of my favorites so far as it’s very summery and very close to my style in real as well.

The scene consists of a lot of things, all listed and credited below. A quick mention to some of them though is necessary.

The table, tableware and kitchen clutter are from [ keke ]. They were released in the previous round of Uber and being the terrible blogger that I am, I finally got to blog them today. Ugh! They are at the mainstore now so in case you missed them, drop by and check them out along with the other beautiful creations there.

The shelves and string hanging planter are from 22769 currently available in 3 different options at Shiny Shabby.

The rest of the items used are from HAIKEI, some of which I blogged here recently but I’m offering a different perspective today.

Have a look at the credits below for everything else used and for landmarks of each and every one of them.

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!
