Rustling leaves

Good morning world and happy Monday! We’re having a moody weather in Athens today, still warm but very cloudy and possibly rainy later so today’s post feels appropriate. Autumn is here for good and it was about time it arrived.

The picture features a lot of new stuff from the Arcade. So grab your coffee and enjoy reading the long list of credits. It was great fun working on this picture for so many reasons. Mostly because it’s about Autumn which I have missed, (there’s a limit to the number of bikinis I can blog apparently) but also because I got to be creative and use a lot of different items, mix them together and hopefully make a nice picture.

Arcade has been open for several days now, so getting in the sim shouldn’t be a problem anymore. Good luck and have fun!

There is a follow-up fashion picture I made using this scene, which I’m not loving but might post tomorrow to get it out of the way. We’ll see!

Have a great day and week and see you all next time.

Good morning everyone! I will skip the “oh it’s Friday, yay” part, I know you probably share the same joy I do, and move on to the stuff.

Hive made a stage for the Rewind event. Yes, a stage with lights and barricades and everything. Now if you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know already that I used to be a dancer, so stages are kind of my thing. I love them. Looking at them, taking pictures of them, being on them. No matter what they look like, I don’t care – I just want to be near a stage. Sometimes, when I go to the theater, I’ll arrive super early, in order to get on the stage, when no one’s really there yet and take pictures on it. Auditions, failed or successful ones, performances, rehearsals, so many beautiful memories are brought back to me as soon as I’m on one. There is probably a disorder named after that – or will be after today.

So today, I went with an idea of an abandoned after-the-concert stage, picture. When everyone has left, and you only see what’s left of it. There are no signs indicating what kind of concert took place, but the event’s theme is the 70s so just choose your favorite.

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.

…in the middle of my chaos, there was you…

Good morning world! August is here and the clock is ticking. I need to decide what I’m going to do about my holidays. Because I know me. I keep procrastinating and before I realize it, it’s Christmas! So if you ever see me in-world, go ahead and remind me of that. Be like “Hey, you’re still here? What about vacation?”.

MBA Fair has just opened and I told you it’s going to be a good one. There is only one sim after all, but still pretty big one, so be prepared to spend quite some time there. And definitely some money too. I’m showing some of the new releases today, so have a look at the credits below.

The scene is made by brand new THOR stuff. It’s been a while since he made something, hasn’t it? Well, I’m glad he took his time, because I know THOR, he won’t settle for anything less than perfect. The new release is gacha and is currently at the new round of Cosmopolitan. Here’s some information about it:

“This gacha set is composed by 17 items (for the complete setup), all modifiable and all transferable. The rares are three, different tent colors. The 2 surfboards come together and the bong and lighter as well. The Raw Boats Shelter (rares), the Ethnic Rug, The Beach Mats and the Grunge Barrel have animated poses (single and cuddles for couples). The Boho Guitar is a little Jukebox – touching it while make a menu appear and you can choose one song in it. It is modifiable, so you can add your music too.”

Eyes on the ocean

Good morning world! You’ve probably noticed that Flickr was a mess yesterday, which explains my absence blogging wise. Recent activity wouldn’t refresh, which means, any new post wouldn’t show up on anyone’s feed. Which also means, all the hard work for nothing. Sadly, Flickr plays a huge role in SL blogging, as it determines, big time, a picture’s exposure. And you probably also know that this is not the first time something like that happens. I just wish for two things. A. Flickr would send a notice each time that happens, B. a day will come that Flickr or any other social media won’t be necessary and posting on a blog will just be enough. I know, I know…I can dream on.

Today’s post features some new goodies. Let’s start with the head, which is a new bento head by Genesis Lab, currently at the Epiphany. That means it’s gacha and rare but this time you’ll notice that it’s already omega compatible. All your previous bento gacha heads (Sofie, Ethan, Flor) aren’t and there are ways to exchange them to copy/omega versions which I blogged about here.

The outfit, glasses and ice cream are part of the same gacha by Mossu. Mossu collaborated with Genesis and brough this big “We Want Summer” gacha so you should have a look at the gacha key here to see the whole collection and more details.

The scene consists of the huge docks 22769 brought to us at the Gacha Guardians (I know, more gachas, but you’re probably as addicted as I am) along with some of the decor around. Here‘s the gacha key of this collection. In the background you’ll notice the Food Truck DRD had released at past 6th Republic event and you can currently find at the mainstore. The sale over there is still going on and I blogged about it here, so if you haven’t yet, maybe now’s the time to visit.

Have a look at the list below for everything else used in the pic, details and landmarks.

Big, special thanks to my Mos for creating this pose and patiently posing with me for a while. Yes, I like to take my time and he knows that now!

Good morning world! Not much to share with you today apart from the fact that I did go to the beach yesterday but I did jinx it as well. No need to get into the details but let’s just say that my first swim was a bit disappointing! But there are more to come so…

Today’s post features stuff from [ keke ], Serenity Style and DRD. Some are new releases, some are rather older ones. Have a look below for every item used and where you can currently find it.

Life in the sunshine

Good morning world! Speaking of sunshines and as it’s been a while since I last wrote about the weather, you should know that it is still super hot and sunny in Athens and that finally, I’m going to have my first swim on Sunday. I’m so excited I think I’m going to wear my bikini instead of underwear at work today.

Today’s post took a while to make but it was great fun. That’s usually the case, right? It basically took me a while as it consists of two huge sets made by DRD, one currently at Summerfest and a mainstore release from the previous month. DRD creates beautiful, (and in this case) colorful mesh and I’m sure you’re all familiar with it but, if not, make sure you stop by the mainstore as soon as possible, because they’re having a sale. Read here for more information.

The first release at Summerfest is called Boho Backyard and if you get the fatpack (PG or Adult) there is a softlink included (which means everything is already set up together) or you can buy items individually. Summerfest ends in exactly one week from now, so don’t take your time.

DRD2

The older, mainstore release is a gacha set and a pretty big one. It’s called Garden Party and it’s exactly what it sounds. A collection of pretty stuff to decorate your garden. Have a look at the gacha key here for every item included.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a great day and see you all next time.

Sunkissed

Good morning world! You’ve probably noticed that I was gone for three days. It was not a coincidence! And I wasn’t really gone, I was just busy with real. Friday I was at work, pretty much the whole day and in the weekend I had some events to attend to (sounds so classy when I say it like that). Also the weather forecast was accurate. We did reach those high temperatures. So it made it basically impossible to do anything. Yes, even blogging felt like a chore. This week promises to be different but I have yet to see it.

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff, most of which are at Summerfest. The event opened on Friday and will stay open until July 20th. Here’s a map of the sim as you might get a bit lost in there.

Have a look at the credits below for detailed credits of every item used and landmarks.
