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 everyone! It’s international women’s day today so let’s celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done. But we are not to be discouraged. And that’s all I’m going to say on this matter. It’s also Wednesday today so all the weekend lovers like me have more reasons to celebrate. We’re half way there.

Today’s post features more stuff from the new round of We Love RolePlay. The hair is new add-on from Tableau Vivant. It can be worn on any female head but Tableau released hairbases for Catwa as well. They have similar hairbases for Lelutka heads that would match this add-on, currently at Kustom9. The corset is from EMO-tions and can also be found at WLRP. And since you’re there, you can check out PUMEC’s new lipstick appliers for Catwa heads.

TABLEAU

I blogged yesterday PUMEC’s new release at The Chapter Four. It’s ears/eyes/skins (for catwa) gacha and in this post I’m wearing the rare one. I took a quick close-up snapshot of it below so you can have a better look.

TABLEAU1

I really need to have coffee first and then start typing. Sometimes I feel I don’t make any sense at all.

That’s all for now! Have a good day/night and I’ll see you all next time.

Bohemian days

So, I went to the Skin Fair press preview last night. As I expected, it’s huge. First of all I didn’t even know there are so many skin/make-up/tattoo stores on the grid. I was in a hurry and still spent an hour there to go through every one of them. Sadly there are a few stores missing from it but overall, it seems to be an amazing round. Second of all, prepare yourselves to shop a lot. Yes. If you manage to control yourselves and not spend a lot of money, you need to teach me how to do that as well. I will soon make a post featuring skins from it so I won’t share more until then.

addams

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff. The skin, eyes and ears I’m wearing are all new from PUMEC and currently at The Chapter Four. It’s gacha so you can get most of them with just a couple of pulls. The skin comes with a shape for Catwa’s Catya bento head as well but I have missed Dyana and I was so glad it works great on her too. Glasses are also from PUMEC but at The Crossroads. The hair is gorgeous, made by TRUTH and currently at Uber. The hat is optional if you don’t feel like wearing one.

addams3

Shorts are super sexy, by Addams and it’s a mainstore release. Available, as always, for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza mesh bodies and in many colors. Last but not least, the bracelet is by [ Hoorenbeek ] from a previous Kustom9 round but currently at their mainstore. It’s unisex, comes with a hud allowing you to change textures/colors and it’s fitted for your mesh bodies as well. Which is pretty cool, I always mess up when I have to edit jewellery to fit my body’s shape.

That’s all for now peeps. It seems like this is going to be another busy week for me so unfortunately I can’t stay and say more. I’ll see you all next time! Have a good one.

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.

The Paddington ladies

I have been doing a lot of collaborations lately and I have to admit, they’re fun! But they’re not easy to do. I’ve given this some thought and at least for me, when it comes to taking pictures there has to be one photographer who’s basically the boss. Yes I do like to boss people around, but that’s not what I mean in this case. If you want to make a specific picture, you imagine what everything is supposed to look like, don’t you? Where everything is going to be and which angle you’re going to shoot from so you can showcase some specific items or just because you like from a certain angle.

alt

Can you imagine what happens when you have someone else to pose with you so you have two people to worry about? In the first case you would have to only think about where you would be or how you’re going to pose in the certain frame but with two or more persons it gets more difficult. Difficult means challenge to me though, so YAY!

alt1

Hara and I have been discussing about making a picture together for quite some time now and I was really looking forward to it. We did team up with Jules and Chloe for the Spice Girls picture she made but when we both got our hands on the new sweater ALT by Truth released at the mainstore, we knew the time had arrived for just the two of us. All we needed was a nice concept and scene for it.

alt2

We met one evening and started working on the scene for a while. Changed it multiple times until we finally agreed. It was ready. Thank you for tolerating me dear Hara! I had a wonderful time!

The sweater is available for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies and you can choose from many different colors/textures. This project has been great opportunity for me to also show you once again the hair TRUTH released same day with this sweater. Beautiful, right?

alt3

Last but not least, the shoes are from friday, currently available at Kustom 9. If you haven’t heard by now, friday’s semi-annual sale began last night at midnight SLT and will end on March 10th. If you’re a shoe lover like me, you’ll enjoy it for sure.

That would be all for now. Have a lovely day/night and see you all soon

The briturn

Hello! Another collab…Yes, it’s me on the left and guess who’s down on the right…It is Julie! I thought you got it from the title. Briturn is the amalgamation of British and Return. You know, because Julie is British? And she’s back in my pictures? No? Not good? OK, moving on, it’s been so long since we last made a picture together and with everything going on for both of us in RL and SL, we had forgotten what our avatars look like. Good thing we’re both blogging so we can be informed in case something changes on us. Actually, it is harder for Jules, I change my looks all the time. But she can always tell it’s me by my good manners and quiet mouth. (OK, who laughed?)

friday

So, this post happened kinda by accident. We were hanging out, it was the weekend and figured, let’s take a picture for old times sake. But it was also a great opportunity to show you some of the stuff I’ve been meaning to show you. Let’s start with the shoes that are still at Collabor88 (I think event ends on the 6th, so hurry) by friday. Super cute. Then I also wanted to show this ball lounger chair by 22769. It’s very stylish and even though I’m not a decorator, architect or anything similar, I was very impressed with the design. It was actually featured at the Challenge of the Builders, which I have no idea what it is, but you can read here if you’re interested. It is at their mainstore now.

friday3

Also a quick mention to other decor stuff. [ keke ] is a store I have been shopping from for the past couple of months. She designs beautiful things, perfect for decorating and styling up a scene/room/house/garden/you-name-it. If you’ve been paying attention to my pictures, you’ve probably noticed I always add something from keke in the scenes I make. I will soon post another scene I made, mostly with keke creations so be patient. The rest of the decor is gacha from Concept at the current round of Shiny Shabby. Worth a visit for sure.

friday2

And I know, I’ve blogged it before and it’s gotten old but this skin is here to stay for a while. Pumec at Tres Chic for Lelutka heads. There, I was quick.

It’s still early in the morning and Jules is in the UK (2 hours behind me) so she’s probably still  having her beauty sleep while I’m writing this. By the time she wakes up I will be at work so I’ll update the post with a link to her blog as soon as I come back home tonight.

UPDATE: She has woken up! Visit here to see her credits and beautiful picture.

That’s all for now lovely ones. Have a nice day/night and be kind to one another.

Spring blow

The weather has been changing in Athens. We’ve had some rain and clouds but the temperature is getting higher and the sun is finally out again. And it looks like it’s here to stay for a while. It’s going to be March tomorrow, which means Spring is officially here. Now, I don’t know about you, but my mood depends on, a huge level, on the weather. Depends also on how much coffee I’ve had – I haven’t had any yet – I’m surprised I can even type right now.

The Arcade is coming tomorrow as well. This post features the new hair Tableau Vivant participates in the event with. It’s editorial hair (I mean photography hair) and it’s called Hairplay. It’s gacha of course, consists of 4 different hairstyles (back/side/down/front blow) and flip blow (amazing one) as a reward, after playing the gacha machine 25 times. It also comes with pose balls for each one of the hairs. If you’re using bento hands, don’t forget to put them on as they animate your hands/fingers too. Here’s the gacha key for you to have a better look.

The skin applier I’m wearing is becoming one of my favorites so far. It’s Pumec’s release, currently at Tres Chic event and I’m using it on Lelutka’s Chloe bento head.

Closer

New week, new month, new round of events. Including the return of the Arcade that opens on Wednesday. If you haven’t seen the shopping guide yet, I would suggest to sit down first and have a look, as it will take a while. Addams sponsors the event and has released a super sexy outfit for the ladies. It’s a lace bodysuit (available in too versions – sheer and solid) but you can also wear bra and panties separately. You will also find boots, in 3 different lengths, a flower bra and a mask as a reward to finish up your look. Check credits below for more details.

The head I have on is the new bento head from Lelutka, Chloe. I’m wearing PUMEC’s latest applier for Lelutka heads, Agatha, but I kept the default Chloe shape. Only changed it up a little. She’s pretty, right?

addams

Hair is one of my favorite from TRUTH. Rather old release but that’s not important at all. Still looks amazing. For the scene I used one of THOR’s past gacha releases, which now should be at his mainstore plus HAIKEI’s current gacha goodies from Kustom9.
