The Wonders Gate

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.

Beyond the blue

Week is almost over – hang in there! Yes, I’m talking to myself but if it works on you too, even better. I have been talking a lot to myself lately, not sure if that is something I should worry about or not, but, you know, when you’re thinking of too many things at the same time and sometimes, out loud? A person actually noticed at work yesterday and told me. I had to pretend I was actually talking to her and that I’m not crazy. I think I didn’t convince her.

We’re only 10 days away from Easter which means two things. 1. Time off work 2. Lots of food. Greeks are very committed to their Easter celebrations and I’m not going to argue, especially if there’s food involved. I will try not to tease much and plurk images of the upcoming dishes, but I can’t promise I won’t, either.

In other news, as you can tell, my rambling is, like always, totally irrelevant and doesn’t make sense, but I figured the 10 persons that read my blog posts, won’t mind, he he…

ADDAMS

Today’s post features the newest release of Addams. It’s a mainstore addition – one of the things I love about blogging for Addams actually – it’s nice not to worry about an event deadline for a change and it’s basically 3 things which can be worn all at once. A swimsuit, super sexy, like Addams knows how to make them, a tank top dress, available in transparent or not, versions and sandals (with optional chains and pearls). In every color you can imagine too. So since Summer is coming, maybe it’s time to consider shopping for your beachy excursions.

That would be all for now guys. I have to go to work and continue the conversation I’ve had with myself yesterday. Be kind to one another and see you all next time.

Minimal blush

Good morning peeps. Do you remember my post where I was happy about the weather and how it’s always nice, warm and sunny? Well, forget it. I totally jinxed it – it’s like the universe read my post and said “no way lady, I’m gonna show you now”. It rained a lot last night and it’s pretty cold this morning. Weather is a huge factor on my mood swings and determines how easily I’ll get out of the bed in the morning. This morning has been a challenge.

Maybe that’s probably why I decided to cover up Lybra’s new release with this coat from COCO. The colors work together perfectly too – I love this blush color tone. The outfit is available for Maitreya only and hud driven (seperate hud for the bra) available now at Uber. Hair is new from Tableau Vivant, currently available at the Project Seven. There are two hairstyles for you to grab, this is the short and kind of elegant, one.

That’s all for now guys, I have to get ready for work. It’s really hard pretending to go to work with a smile every day, isn’t it? Hehe. Have a good day/night and be kind to one another.

Glitter princess

I woke up feeling tired today. It might have to do with the fact that it’s Monday again. Or the fact that this weekend was…meh. Have you ever had a weekend when you have so many things to do but you end up feeling overwhelmed and doing absolutely nothing? It sucks when I think about it now. Kind of feels like a waste of time. I wanted to sleep more and I didn’t. I wanted to work on some pictures and I didn’t. The only thing I did was shop more. Because apparently there’s no day in the week or enough exhaustion in the world to keep me from doing that. He he.

keke1

Today’s post features stuff by [ keke ]. If you haven’t been at her store yet, you’re missing out. She creates beautiful things for home and garden and it’s impossible not to find something you’re going to use from them. Her latest releases have been rugs and glitter waterfalls, so if you’re a princess like me, you’re going to enjoy them. Have a look at the credits below for her mainstore’s SLurl and details for every item used in the picture.

Confinement

I had an awful day at work today. Have you ever noticed – I believe I have blogged about this before- how you get some really bad days sometimes, and not just one, but almost everything goes wrong? Is it like a universal rule where all hell breaks loose in order to teach us a lesson? And what would that be? Cause all I learned today was to “never go to work on a Monday again”.

roses-and-lillies

I will spare you the details but man, oh man… I’ve never been happier that I’m finally home. And yes, I know I keep complaining about my work but come on, bare with me! I’m struggling here! I did have a lovely weekend though, slept much, went out and took a bunch of pictures for you to see. Everything went according to plan.

Today’s post features the new release from Evolove for TLC. It’s a box and it’s called Confined. Only Evolove has confined me so far in such elegant and picturesque way! The box comes with a hud that allows you to change its color and as always, has a bunch of poses in it. The hair is also new from Tableau Vivant and currently at collabor88. Their past releases have been add-ons and hairbases for Lelutka’s Simone bento head. I’m so digging them! Of course, you can wear the add-ons with any head you like. You just need a tintable hairbase (if it’s not a Lelutka head) in order to match the hair color.

The lingerie is from erratic also at collabor88. There are options for you (brasserie, bodysuit, panties etc) if you get the full set or you can purchase only the parts of it you like/want. Last but not least, the skin applier is from ItGirls, not a new release but one of my favorites of hers.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night, be kind to one another and I’ll see you all soon.

2016 Lessons

Work never ends. Will always be there, no matter how much you try to get rid of it.

Money doesn’t buy happiness but definitely helps you find it.

When you have faith, anything is possible.

People can actually be nice to you for no hidden reason.

This is a damaged world I live in but there is still hope.

True friends can be more important than family.

2017 Resolutions

Take care of myself. Sleep and eat more, worry and stress less.

Catch up on my dancing. Been so long I wonder if I fit in my pointes.

Remind my loved ones of how important they are to me.

Work to live, don’t live to work.

Dare and make mistakes. Won’t learn otherwise.

Never take anything for granted.

Having that said I’m officially bound by my promise. One year from now, you have every right to ask me if I kept my word. Until then I have to show you some stuff, and since this is my last post for the year 2016, it had to be celebratory. Evolove gave me the perfect opportunity to do so with their release for Tres Chic. Their newest creation is a champagne glass (there is actually one big prop one and a smaller one for you to hold) which includes 20 poses in, out and around the glass. So, for a change, I put on some of my favorite designs from the year and hopped on the glass to wish you all Happy New Year!

On a quick note, the bra is from Dead Dollz, gacha rare, but no longer for sale unfortunately. The shorts are from Tee*fy from an old Collabor88 round, so I guess they can be found in the mainstore now. The shoes are probably one of the first I bought since I joined SL in February, from fri.day and the necklace is from Modern Couture, again, one of my first purchases. The hair is December’s group gift from Truth. There is a fee to join the group, but it’s totally worth it. You get (at least) a free fatpack every month! Skin applier is from ItGirls, for Catwa heads only and gorgeous as always.

That would be all for now lovely people. I hope you all have a wonderful day today. Whatever you do, however you spend it, remember that you’re all special and important. Never lose your smile, never give up and pat your shoulder for everything you’ve accomplished so far. It’s been a rough year for everyone but hey, we made it through, we’re all winners and survivors! So since I’m on my first glass of Champagne already, I say yamas (that’s Greek for cheers) to everything that happened and yamas to everything that’s coming next. Happy new year with lots of love, smiles and hugs!

You’ve probably noticed that it has been a very productive week for me. No, nothing’s changed, I’m still busy with work and everything in RL and my life is still a mess, but I’m planning on leaving in a couple of days so I had to hurry up and show you all some stuff before I leave. I’m going to Paris on Friday. God knows when it was the last time I was on vacation, I have been working non-stop for so long, I don’t even remember what it’s like to just sit down and do nothing. It’s not going to be a long hiatus, but hey, it’s Paris, so I can’t complain.

So, back to the stuff! One of the new releases I wanted you all to see, is the new skin applier from itGirls. I’ve recently started to work with Annie Jolifaunt, owner and designer of itGirls and you have to take my word for it: She’s a wonderful person! We’ve chatted for a while and had so much fun getting to know each other. It’s always amazing to see great and talented designers like her, being so humble and down-to-earth. Anyways, she released a new skin applier for Catwa heads, named Cleo and available in 5 tones. She has a store in-world but you can also check out demos and make purchases through the marketplace. Check credits below for more landmarks and urls and the second picture for a better close-up peek.

The look I was going for in this picture was inspired by the Red Light District in Amsterdam. I figured I needed a display and sexy lingerie. Luckily Lybra took care of that with her new release at ROMP event. Bras and panties, available in 12 different colors and for Maitreya mesh body only. The fur is from Coco and the skirt is from Fawny for her Epiphany gacha release.

That’s all for now lovely people, have a nice day/night and see you all next time!

I don’t have much to say at the moment, so instead, I’ll share with you my current obsession. It’s the California Dreamin’ song but by Sia. She recorded it for the San Andreas O.S.T. and it’s ah-mazing!
