Room for one more

Good morning world! I woke up tired today. I even put the cereal box in the fridge next to the milk so go figure. It won’t be my day. I should stay and ramble, I haven’t done so in a while but I can’t since work is waiting. I’m going to leave you to my long list of credits so grab a snack and enjoy!

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!

Happiest goodbyes

Hello hello! I’m very, very happy to say goodbye to November, Finally! I don’t know about you, but the past couple of months had been the busiest months of my life. Ever. RL and SL. I feel exhausted, I feel worn out, I feel burnt out (ok, was I dramatic enough?) and I was definitely looking forward to December arriving – not because it will be less busy necessarily, but come on! It just has to! And today I’m living the dream! “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” and it is true! It’s still early to celebrate but I did wake up with a smile on my face today. Hope you as well!

Today’s post features more stuff from District 20. It’s a brand new monthly event which I blogged about here but in case you’re lazy like me and unwilling to go back to an older post of mine, here‘s their website with everything you need to know about it.

Good morning! Guess who overslept and now is trying to catch up on everything she was supposed to do this morning? Yes, you got it right, me! I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately but I’m feeling incredibly tired. It gets harder and harder to get out of bed, harder to go to work, even harder to stay there and actually focus and work. Frankly, the only enjoyment lately is blogging. It can get exhausting as well but I guess I’m super addicted. I think vacation is the only solution here and I have nothing planned yet but I’m going to. I think it’s very important that I do, now more than ever.

Today’s post features a bunch of fancy stuff from Fancy Decor. A new release, currently at the Home Show and some older ones that you can grab at the mainstore. Have a look below for every thing used and have fun shopping.

Overtime

It’s pretty late and I’ve had a super long day at work but I want to share a story you don’t know about me. If I don’t make sense, don’t blame me, but my poor English and the state of exhaustion I’m currently in. So, as you probably know, I joined SL last February. I was familiar with the 3D worlds/games before, but a total noob when it came to SL. My bestie, Jules has been a resident longer than I me and she basically introduced me to everything. Fashion stores, sims, taught me how to dress my avatar up. I remember I was sim hopping with my system head, constantly thinking “Wow how do people look like this or how do they create that?”. Oh and I was also shopping like a maniac. First store I had gone to, was Blueberry’s and if I remember correctly, I spent a whole night there trying on every item.

sneak-peek

Greece was under massive capital controls back then (still is but we can use our credits cards now) so my budget was very limited. I soon, was introduced to fashion blogs, I believe Strawberry‘s first and Daeberethwen‘s right after that. Their tutorials encouraged me to start taking pictures and experimenting with photography in SL. Jules persuaded me to start blogging as well. Yes, you have Jules to blame for that. But hey, she said I would be good at it and you don’t want to argue with her. She’ll make you do anything she wants! Ha ha.

22769-1

So, I began blogging stuff I bought while applying to every blogger application I would find. One of the stores I got accepted in, was a poses one, which mostly did poses for couples. I had a total of zero male friends though. I did consider an alternative account (or malt, as I believe it’s called) but I was still learning my current avatar. I wasn’t willing to have another avatar to worry about. So what did I do? I contacted almost every male blogger and photographer I was following on Flickr, asking them if they would like to make a picture with me. Yes, I did that. Thinking about it now, I’m quite embarrassed, but no regrets there, one has to be resourceful. Everyone rejected me (can’t blame them), others didn’t even reply. But one of them did, with an answer I will never forget: “Sure, when?”. His name is Arnno Planer and he didn’t hesitate to help me immediately. He didn’t care about my photography skills or popularity either.

22769-2

I have been friends with Arnno ever since that day. I will always remember how helpful he was and how he – doesn’t know it yet, but he will now – influenced me and motivated me to keep doing what I’m doing. I figured he probably saw something in me and thought I deserve a chance. Merci beaucoup mon ami!

Which brings me to my post tonight. I asked him to join me once again, since it has been a while and I had missed him. It is very interesting how everyone on SL is only at a one-click -distance but yet so far away.

22769

The post features the gacha goodies you can get at the Gacha Garden, while it’s still open (I believe it ends on Tuesday) from 22769 ~ [bauwerk]. The concept is Home Office and I sticked to it. You can have a look at each item from the gacha in the credits below but here’s a picture of the gacha key as well. The hair is by Truth, previously at Uber but currently at his mainstore and the skin applier is from ItGirls for your Catwa heads.

Now that I’ve rambled enough, I can finally call it a night and start stalking your pictures and blogs. Thank you! He he.

Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another.

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!

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.

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).

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.

“Love is strong in its passion; affection is powerful in its gentleness”
Jules Michelet

“I’m late, people are waiting”, she said.

“Don’t worry about the people. Let them wait. Anticipation works to your advantage” he replied. With a quick move grabbed her by her waist, pulled her close against his body and held her tight. Kissed her neck softly as she leaned her head back against his shoulder, allowing him to explore the surface better.

“Miss, miss, is everything ok? People are screaming your name, you’re late” she heard someone scream while knocking on her door.

“I’ll be right there” she yelled back and tried to leave his embrace.

“I will miss you” he said and kissed her lips softly.

“Walk me to the stage” she replied and gave him a huge smile.

Door opens and cameras start flashing. “Miss, miss, over here” was all she could hear. She held his hand with both her hands and let him walk her out of the crowd and lead her backstage, by the stage entrance.

“One last kiss before the show?” she asked and smiled seductively.

“Of course my love” he replied and gave her a big passionate kiss on the lips.

I feel so honored that the lovely ARnnO PLAneR posed with me in this one. If you haven’t seen his photos, you’re missing out. He’s one of the best SL photographers and very busy too, so for that, I’m so grateful and appreciative. He’s been a great sport and I feel privileged to call him a friend.

Merci beaucoup!

“I have enough clothes and shoes, I don’t need to go shopping” said no woman, ever…

It’s nice to wear a big tee (usually the ones you wear and everyone thinks you’re pregnant trying to hide the baby bump) and jeans and feel so comfortable! The ones that usually you didn’t spend much to buy and you keep in the back of your closet as you don’t get to wear them often.

Personally, whether it’s RL or SL, I’ve always believed this outfit can be great if a) you don’t have much time to give much thought in what you want to wear and b) you’re out of the house the whole day and need to be ready for anything that might come up, whether it’s a morning coffee or lovely dinner in the evening.
