Homemade happiness

I know our deal is I don’t ramble in the weekends, but thanks to my computer dying I have been posting less, so a) I have missed rambling and b) I owe you such.

Ok, for those that haven’t been keeping up with my blog, I’ve blogged on Monday (or Tuesday, not sure) that my computer is dead, currently at the computer tech guy, trying to figure out why it was getting the BSoD. He has come up with many reasons why, all of which make sense to me but apparently it’s still not fixed. He actually called me yesterday to tell me that it’s ready, only to call back 2 hours later to let me know it still gets some errors.

If you’re wondering how I’m still posting pictures, it’s because a)I’m using my father’s old laptop and b) I always take more pictures in the weekend, save them, edit and post them during the weekdays (when I can’t log on SL for too long). So I had taken a bunch of pictures last weekend, but after this one, I only have one more to post.

Anyways, today’s post features [ keke ]’s greenhouse from Deco(c)rate. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically a monthly mystery box filled with high quality, original mesh decor, home and garden items.  After the 8th of April, [ keke ] will be releasing the same build, but in white color in her mainstore. So if you’re bummed you missed this you can always purchase a previous box or get it in white. The hair is from Tram currently at the Crossroads and the outfit is from ISON at Collabor88. Skin and Head are, both new, from Pumec and Catwa, at the Skin Fair.

That would be all for now peeps. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend and are kind to one another. See you all next time.

Good morning peeps! Friday today so the mood is good. My computer is still at the “doctor’s” and let me tell you, I miss it, big time! I have been using my father’s laptop and…ermm..let’s just say it’s different. Editing this picture on his computer was quite challenging. But better than nothing. The computer tech guy contacted me yesterday, to let me know it was the RAM cards that caused the BSoD issue. They have lifetime warranty so they can be replaced for free, which is pretty cool, but it will probably take a while. I need to send them back to the company that made them, they need to examine them and then send me new ones. I’d give it a week but who knows how long this will take.

Good morning peeps….! It’s Sunday so I don’t ramble. I’ll just get it away with a song. Not a new song but currently stuck in my head. It’s You Make Me Feel by Archive. I, again, am abusing the repeat button.

The unfamiliar host

As you have probably noticed, I have started to create my own scenes for my pictures. It’s been probably a month that I have been doing so and I’m enjoying it so much. I started to do that because I was experiencing issues at sims. Apart from the fact that I like my privacy when I’m working and usually at the sims I would go to, someone would photobomb my pictures, my computer and graphics card wouldn’t allow me to take snapshots on ultra graphics and would eventually make me crash constantly. So finally, my gacha machines obsession, found its purpose. Ever since I’ve been a SL resident, I would always play decor gacha machines, even if it was stuff that didn’t look interesting or necessary to me. I would collect random pieces from each machine and store, because “one day I might need them”. Then, as soon as the opportunity came, I would put them all together to make something beautiful. Hopefully, I have succeeded in most cases.

rezology1

The process usually takes me a couple of hours. Depending on how big my scene is going to be, plus, how many items I’m featuring in one picture. But trust me, it feels so good. Kind of like a puzzle game where you’re given different items and you have to make them all look like they belong together. Makes you become resourceful and come up with ideas that you would have never thought about before. Plus, it helps you grow. I mean, if you’re a blogger, why not start to work with items out of your style too and challenge yourself with something new?

rezology

As soon as my scene is ready, I take a small break and then try to think about where I am going to be in it. My goal is consistency. If it’s a kitchen, you don’t want to be in a gown. If it’s a beach you don’t want to be in lingerie. If colors match too, would be perfect.

So, enough rambling for one night. This post features a bunch of new releases, mostly decor stuff. I know the list of credits is super long, but come on. Given the amount of time I spent to create this scene, plus, writing all credits down and linking them to urls, you owe me to at least have a look. He he!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and see you all next time.

I have never been busier in my entire life. I guess it gets busy for everyone around Christmas but let me just say this. Christmas is in 6 days and I still haven’t even decorated my house. Time management is something I really need to work on. The limited free time I get, apparently, I spend it wrong. But oh well, I still manage to get by! Can’t complain!

deux2

For this picture I had the help of my wonderful friend Cocolinox Decuir once again. You know how I know he’s my friend? He waited for me to relog back on SL one crash after the other. I think that day is my own personal record of like 23 crashes. Same thing happened to me with Chloë-Dakota Amaranthine a few days ago for our picture. So I’m adding that to my friends requirements now. May be not good enough criteria but if they wait for your crappy computer to let you work, they care! He he.

This post features the beautiful design by Milk Motion for the Arcade. It’s gacha and very very well designed. It’s rooftops of Paris which come with some plant and flags decorations. They also come with rain and chimney smoke huds to make it look even better! Pretty cool. Check out the gacha key here. The dress is from Lybra for the Winter Solstice event which ends today, so hurry! Pose and Tattoo are from Nanika, mainstore and On9 releases.

Strip

Evolove is once again part of this round of Liaison Collaborative. This time, spicing things up with a strippers pole. Yes, you read right. It’s a pole available in 3 different colors and includes a fatpack of 20 poses. Really good work if you ask me. Apart from that you can also play their mini tree gacha which is in the same event as well.

So what better outfit to showcase the poses and pole with, other than Erratic’s newest release at Collabor88? Consists of bras,panties, garter, suspenders and stockings! What else do you need?

strip2

The gloves and matching gloves were from Dead Dollz and Astralia, for the limit 8 event. Exlusive items in limited copies. I didn’t visit recently, but I’m pretty sure they will have run out by now. Shoes are from Reign, from past Arcade event. That means it’s gacha and should be in their mainstore. I figured to go with “Expensive”, since we’re  on stripping mode.

As my lovely friend Chloë-Dakota mentioned in her blog post, one of the great things about photography is: Collaborations. It’s been so lovely spending time with her again, after so long. Last time we got together was for a picture for We Love Role-Play, but this time it’s On9’s turn.

Event has been open for a while now and if you still haven’t visited, I think you’re missing out. Grand Holiday Party is the theme of this round so you can imagine what lovely designs you’ll find there. Also, there are gifts. Join the On9 group for free and grab them.

For this post, Chloë and I decided to go with a look a little magical, a little fairytale-ish and very winter-y! The gown and fur wrap are from Me Sew Sexy and the Pose is from Pose it store. Both stores are event regulars that never disappoint. The crown is from the Annex for Winter Solstice which is about to end so you should hurry. Last but not least, as you’ve probably heard by now, Rezology has been updating all of their hairstyles for the last couple of months. They’re finally done! And they’re already releasing new ones. With the updates you get hairs that automatically fit your breast size plus bento fits! Also, they’re about to release a brand new female mesh head. You can read more information about the updates here.

Forever

Yes, Forever, because this is how long some days feel. Isn’t it totally unfair that time passes so fast when you’re having a great time and the exact opposite happens when you’re not? Some days at work, I’m staring at the clock on the wall, thinking that if I had any super powers, time control or anything to get me out of here, now it would be the perfect time to come out! However, it is Friday – TGIF – so I’ll stop whining, go to work (although I’m pretty sure I’m working tomorrow as well) and think of new ways to control time. Or what other cool super powers I’d love to have. Meanwhile, On9 opens today and I wanted to show you all some of the new releases. It is a holiday round which means you get event exclusives plus gifts from the designers. Group join is required but it is free. Type On9 Fan Club in group search and knock yourselves out.

forever

The dress and fur I’m wearing are from Ana Markova, available in many colors and for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP mesh bodies. You can also wear the fur in two different ways, either on your shoulders – sort of like a cape, or the normal way – like a jacket. Have a look at it here. The shoes are also new from Garbaggio, and as always, in many different colors to meet your needs. Bracelets are new from Kunglers available in 3 different options.

on9-preview

Now to the rest of the stuff. The skin applier is by PUMEC and comes from her Chapter Four gacha. A pretty big gacha for sure. You can get skin appliers (clean versions) as rares or make up huds, ears and eyes for commons. You can have a look at the gacha key here. Tattoo is also gacha from Nanika for the Liaision Collaborative. As always, she never disappoints. This is her gacha key.

forever2

Last but not least, Limit 8 has opened yesterday, which features exclusives from your favorite designers but limited in limited copies (I believe 200). That means that as soon as the copies run out, they won’t be available for sale any more. Two of the designers participating are Dead Dollz and Astralia. They collaborated with the gloves/nails I’m wearing. So if you’re interested, you have to hurry!

That would be all for now. Have a nice day/night everyone and a wonderful weekend. I’ll see you all next time.
