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.

Good morning world. Today’s post is inspired by the Quicksilver ads. It’s probably my favorite brand when it comes to beach/summer wear and I’m sure their ads have a lot to do with it.

You are nowhere

Good morning world! Beautiful day today, isn’t it? You know what’s funny, one of my friends, out of the ten that actually read my blog, called me a meteorologist the other day when I ran into him in-world. He told me it’s funny how I always mention the weather. So it made me realize that, indeed, I do mention the weather a lot. Well I usually start my posts by mentioning the weather. But then again, why not? Clearly it’s a big part of my mood everyday and I’m sure for many people as well. And for your information, I would make a great weather lady, I used to practice it when I was a kid. Stand in front of the TV and pretend I’m telling the weather. It was cute.

Anyways, today’s post features the huge Milky Motion gacha set at the Arcade. This collection is epic, so I had to show it eventually. You can have a look at the credits below for a full list of items included in the gacha and for all of the other items used in the picture.

The top I’m wearing is a new release by Addams, was released a couple of weeks ago with the Cerisse Bohemian lingerie that I blogged here but can be worn/bought separately as well.

Not all who wander are lost

Good morning world. Everyone had a good weekend? I definitely did. The weather it’s getting better and better every day (well, it did rain yesterday, but only for a couple of hours) which affects my mood positively but also makes me think of beaches and summer holidays so will probably give me a hard time focusing at work.

Speaking of hard times, let’s move on to the stuff. Today I’m showing the new gacha Hive released at the Arcade. The set is called Summer Camp, consists of 14 common and 3 rare items to collect, each and every one of them amazing. So why a hard time?

A gacha like this requires a full landscape. And I’m terrible at it. I first worked on this set about a week ago, trying to mix and match other things from the Arcade as well, wanting to showcase everything the best way possible and I thought I had made a good job until I saw posts of this set from other bloggers and photographers on social media. They were beautiful, inspiring and made me decide that I needed to work on this more and differently. But I don’t worry anymore. Alexa promised me to teach me how to terraform and create big, impressive landscapes so there you go. I will, one day, amaze you with them. Until then, be gentle and remember that I’m a noob. He he.

I managed to use some other stuff from the Arcade as well, such as Brocante’s bicycle and miwa’s airship kitchen decoration items. Have a look at the credits below, everything’s listed. Last but not least, everything I’m wearing, apart from the top (which is a new Addams release but you’ll get a better look at it in another post soon) is also from the Arcade by Tableau Vivant, Vinyl and Friday.
