Breathing in, giving in

Good morning world! I will be packing my things today and maybe work a little, but we all know that’s not going to happen. And since I have nothing else on my mind at the moment, I can’t stay and ramble. I’ll let you take a look at the credits below and enjoy your shopping!

See you all next time!

It’s the weekend and I’m not supposed to ramble but Collabor88 has recently opened its door to a new round and actually, a birthday one.  It’s been 7 years since Collabor88 opened to the public and they’re celebrating it by inviting back all the guests designers from the previous rounds. This month, the theme is Rainforest. The event has updated their website as well so take a look and enjoy your shopping experience!

Gallant Magazine SL – Late Spring Early Summer 2018

Good morning world!

The Spring issue of Gallant Magazine has been released and I had the pleasure to be part of it. It’s not the first time I’m working with Divos and his talented team of photographers and stylists though. In case you’ve missed the previous, Winter issue, you can take a look here.

But, it’s Spring season and the gardens are blooming! My assignment this time was “English Gardens” which was a challenge. I’ve been to the UK many times but gardens and especially English ones, are not something I’m very familiar with. Luckily, SL creations have everything covered so inspiration was definitely not something I was lacking of.

You can take a look at the magazine here.

I’m posting all of my images below but I’ll be sharing them on Flickr soon, too. One by one though, noone likes a spammer…! Make sure you check page 220 for all the credits!

There you go! If you were wondering what you’d read this morning with your coffee, I got your answer!

Have a beautiful day!

Springtime

Good morning world! Happy Monday… (or whatever, you know my thoughts on Mondays but I have to keep it professional, you know…). So, let’s talk about how crappy this weekend has been, shall we?

I’ll start with the fact that I have not been productive at all. And I wanted to! I wasn’t supposed to work on Saturday but I got a phonecall at 7am, informing me that someone called in sick, so I had to fill in. That’s what I get for leaving my phone on, right? I came home around 5pm and went straight to bed. Woke up 2 hours later, all ready and prepared to make a picture with my friend Hara for the Epiphany. It took us a couple of hours to figure out what we would do, we started setting up and then we couldn’t get our shadows or angles right, we did take a bunch of pictures and then she fell asleep. After that and since I had no plans for Saturday night, I figured I would work on more pictures. And I did! Then went to bed all happy that I had made some progress.

I woke up on Sunday though and I hated everything. My face in the mirror, the fact that I had woken up early, the taste of the cereal and of course, all of the pictures I had taken. So I deleted everything. For the rest of the day I was struggling on making one single picture and took me forever. Felt like it was my first day of blogging. Now, I know what you might think, and no, it was not that time of the month. Is it exhaustion? Could be. Am I burnt out? Probably. All I know is that SL designers have been super productive lately and I, once again, want to be the hero that keeps up with everything. I still think that I can make it. We shall see!

So here’s some new stuff from Bloom and Collabor88 for you. A super long list of credits follows so I’d suggest you grabbed your coffee first.

Hello world! It’s been raining pretty much the whole day but it’s Saturday so I won’t complain. I also won’t ramble since that’s our deal in the weekends. I do have to mention the super talented Shocking Wonder who joined me for this picture, though. I’m sure you’re all familiar with her work already but, if not, have a look here.

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff, so grab a snack and have a look at the credits below.

Best, isn’t good enough.

Hello world! It might be a somewhat sad post today but only because I’m pretty emotional since last night. I could share the whole story but I won’t. No need to name names or point fingers. Let’s just say I was let go from a store I used to blog for, without any prior warning or discussion about their intention. I was really surprised that happened, since I kept my part of the deal. I met the requirements and, I believe, I did everything I could to showcase their stuff, best way possible. Best, is not good enough though. And hey, it’s their decision and I have to accept and respect it. I’m still so grateful I got the opportunity to be part of their team in the first place.

Rejection is part of our lives. If you think about it, we get rejected constantly, in so many different ways. But sometimes, it can’t help but feel personal. This was not a Blueberry application, where you got rejected only because 1.000 other bloggers applied. I can live with that. This is being rejected after being part of the team!

I have mentioned before how blogging is therapeutic to me. It’s a brilliant escape to forget my troubles and distract me from the things that bother me. It’s also a lot of sacrifices. It’s the time away from my friends in RL, my friends in SL, my family. It’s also the times I missed my dance classes, I was late for work or lost sleep. Clearly I made the wrong choices and let SL take over RL but I will stand by my decisions, because they make me happy. It is what it is.

I once read a quote: Confidence is not “they will like me”. Confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t”. And it’s true! Now, if you’re a stubborn Virgo like me, you know that the best thing to do next is, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, remember why you started this in the first place and prove them wrong. At least, that’s what I plan on doing.

Ok, and now that the sad little rambling’s over and I feel better, I’ll make a quick mention to the stuff. New hair by Tableau Vivant at Project 7, new Friday boots, Ison outfit and Dust Bunny garden stuff at Collabor88! Check the list below for all the details and have fun.

Hello world! I don’t have much time to ramble today so I’ll just move on to the stuff. There is a new awesome build by Hive at Salem and since you’re there, check out the ravens JIAN made as well.

You know, I was really tempted to play with you all and hide a raven somewhere in the picture, to see who would eventually find it. Hmm..I actually regret not doing that now, so maybe next time!

Good morning folks! It’s Friday, are you all as excited as I am? I’m working tomorrow again and starting next week, I will be working from 10am until 10pm which is going to be a challenge, working and keeping up with my blog at the same time, but I’ll figure something out. And that should never be a reason to not enjoy a Friday!

So, today I’m showing you the newest release of Concept – and not a gacha one this time. You can find it at Shiny Shabby, it’s called Nude and consists of a bath, a candles tray and of course, candles. There’s also a wooden platform/floor in the set but I didn’t use that as I got to use the amazing stone stairs Studio Skye has created.

I had never considered the idea of bathing outside before and to be honest…now that I have, I still don’t think that I would do it. No offense to all of you daredevils out there but…some snakes can swim! It’s all I’m saying!
