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.

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.

Overtime

It’s pretty late and I’ve had a super long day at work but I want to share a story you don’t know about me. If I don’t make sense, don’t blame me, but my poor English and the state of exhaustion I’m currently in. So, as you probably know, I joined SL last February. I was familiar with the 3D worlds/games before, but a total noob when it came to SL. My bestie, Jules has been a resident longer than I me and she basically introduced me to everything. Fashion stores, sims, taught me how to dress my avatar up. I remember I was sim hopping with my system head, constantly thinking “Wow how do people look like this or how do they create that?”. Oh and I was also shopping like a maniac. First store I had gone to, was Blueberry’s and if I remember correctly, I spent a whole night there trying on every item.

sneak-peek

Greece was under massive capital controls back then (still is but we can use our credits cards now) so my budget was very limited. I soon, was introduced to fashion blogs, I believe Strawberry‘s first and Daeberethwen‘s right after that. Their tutorials encouraged me to start taking pictures and experimenting with photography in SL. Jules persuaded me to start blogging as well. Yes, you have Jules to blame for that. But hey, she said I would be good at it and you don’t want to argue with her. She’ll make you do anything she wants! Ha ha.

22769-1

So, I began blogging stuff I bought while applying to every blogger application I would find. One of the stores I got accepted in, was a poses one, which mostly did poses for couples. I had a total of zero male friends though. I did consider an alternative account (or malt, as I believe it’s called) but I was still learning my current avatar. I wasn’t willing to have another avatar to worry about. So what did I do? I contacted almost every male blogger and photographer I was following on Flickr, asking them if they would like to make a picture with me. Yes, I did that. Thinking about it now, I’m quite embarrassed, but no regrets there, one has to be resourceful. Everyone rejected me (can’t blame them), others didn’t even reply. But one of them did, with an answer I will never forget: “Sure, when?”. His name is Arnno Planer and he didn’t hesitate to help me immediately. He didn’t care about my photography skills or popularity either.

22769-2

I have been friends with Arnno ever since that day. I will always remember how helpful he was and how he – doesn’t know it yet, but he will now – influenced me and motivated me to keep doing what I’m doing. I figured he probably saw something in me and thought I deserve a chance. Merci beaucoup mon ami!

Which brings me to my post tonight. I asked him to join me once again, since it has been a while and I had missed him. It is very interesting how everyone on SL is only at a one-click -distance but yet so far away.

The post features the gacha goodies you can get at the Gacha Garden, while it’s still open (I believe it ends on Tuesday) from 22769 ~ [bauwerk]. The concept is Home Office and I sticked to it. You can have a look at each item from the gacha in the credits below but here’s a picture of the gacha key as well. The hair is by Truth, previously at Uber but currently at his mainstore and the skin applier is from ItGirls for your Catwa heads.

Now that I’ve rambled enough, I can finally call it a night and start stalking your pictures and blogs. Thank you! He he.

Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another.

Wavering harmony

I know, I know it’s the weekend, I’ve promised to shut my mouth in the weekends, but I can’t be completely silent. I’m Greek and I’m a woman. Trust me, many have tried, but all have failed.  I will be specific and to the point though. This post was mostly about decor but I figured, since I liked it, I would jump in and photobomb it. So since I did, I have to make a quick mention to the new skin applier for Lelutka’s Simone bento head by ItGirls which is currently at Uber. The outfit is new from N-Uno at WLRP event.

The scene features the new release by Newchurch, currently at Draftsman event (which ends soon, so you have to hurry) and a bunch of other releases by Serenity Style, Soy, Keke and others, that I thought they complimented the chaise lounge beautifully.  Check credits below for more details.
