Bloom

Good morning world! Spring is in the air. Feeling it yet? It’s a beautiful day today and how could it not be, I’m off work. The weather is amazing and most people have left the city for the holidays, so it’s super quiet, which is perfect.

You’re about to feel the air of Spring on SL for sure, because Bloom is finally open. Bloom is created by Prism Events, that are also responsible for Salem and Tannenbaum and promises to bring color to your SL lives. There are over 100 brands in the event which means that a)you will need to spend sometime to go through them all and b)it’s impossible not to find something you’ll like. Luckily, the sim is beautifully designed and quite easy to navigate. All stalls are around you as you land at the Springtime Market, where you can grab all regular releases and then there is a path with trees on each side (basically looks like a forest) for the gacha machines. You will be tempted to pose and take a picture there.

My post today features a bunch of the goodies you’ll find there, so take a minute (or two) and read the credits carefully. Some are gacha, others not. I’m covering the event so I’ll bring you more pictures soon, hopefully good ones!

I think that would be all for now peeps. It’s the weekend, so remember our deal. I don’t ramble – you are happy readers. Have a lovely day and be kind to one another. See you all next time.

Apartment no.6

Rora and I have known each other for a while now. She used to be my blogger manager and now she’s my good friend too. I have been stalking her and trying to pin her down to make a picture together for quite some time. I finally made it. This was one of the most enjoyable collaborations I’ve had so far. It took us a while but it was definitely worth it. Thank you for putting up with me and for being a doll!

This scene is by far one of my favorite. Soy collabed with Toro and created a neon apartment gacha for Kustom9. If you haven’t checked it out, you’re missing out. I added a few things from THOR too and everything was completed. Kustom9 ends on Monday so you should hurry.

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.

Homage to the dream city

It is Monday again but I’m not in the mood to complain about it. Also, I have to go to work super early this morning so I don’t have the time to do so.

Today’s post features the goodies (well, some of them) from Soy and NOMAD from the Arcade. I have never done a scene like this before so I was challenged. It took me a while but I think the result is pretty decent.

This was also fun because I had the amazing Lawrence D. Pryce to pose with me in it. He saw the – before, during and after – the making of the scene, so I’m not sure the result now will have a great effect on him. But let’s hope he likes it, he he.

Mask off

I had a client yell at me at work yesterday. Not just yelled at – at some point he was screaming at me, for about 30 minutes. Security had to actually come over and remove him from the premises. And the worst part is, he was completely right. Due to bad customer service, he got upset and totally snapped. But he had good reason to complain and lose it. Was that the right way to do so? No, of course not. I’m not one of those people that function well under yelling and pressure. It basically ruined the rest of the day for me, but it also got me thinking. Recognizing your mistakes, realizing and owning them, might be hard to do, but actually makes you a better person. Helps you learn from your mistakes and prevent you from repeating them. Day ended nicely. No one got fired, no one got hurt. Apart from my pride.

truth

What does this have to do with my post today? Absolutely nothing. But it’s a nice opportunity to send a message to those willing to receive one. It’s OK to make mistakes. We’re only human. It’s important to own up to them, make things right (if possible) and don’t repeat them though.

This round of Uber takes us to Tokyo. If you haven’t been yet (to Uber, not Japan) you should know that you will find lots of goodies from many stores, all Tokyo inspired. And for a person like me, that likes to constantly change looks and challenge herself with new themes, this round was amazing. Quick mention to: the hair, which is new from TRUTH, includes the mask but it’s optional to wear it. There are two hair releases from TRUTH actually, the second one I’ll show in another post. The skin applier is new from Genesis Lab. Comes with a shape for Eva bento head (could work on the Lena one as well, but I haven’t tried it personally so not sure what that would look like) and combined with the skin applier, it gives you a beautiful Asian face.

truth1

The shoes are also from this Uber round by friday. Lovely platforms available in many colors. For the scene I used MINIMAL’s release at the event. It’s 4 (or 5? – not sure) backdrops and not gacha for a change. You can actually buy them separately.

That would be all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another. Oh, and if you get yelled at today, try to make happy thoughts and breathe. Really helps!

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.

newchurch2

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.

Another weekend is over and I don’t mean to bring anyone down but, why, oh why, don’t they last longer?!?! I refuse to spend the rest of the evening complaining, even though I enjoy complaining a lot – I know, I’m so much fun – I will just post this and run. A quick mention to the handsome Tyler De’Leon for posing with me. It’s always fun taking pictures with him.

If you follow me on Plurk, you probably saw my post last night about these new Addams leggings, asking for a butt shot. Well here it is. I also said that I’m trying to behave and be “proper” but I constantly fail. Oh well.

This round of Collabor88 is all about fitness. Kind of like my New Year’s resolution. Get healthier, exercise, no pain no gain and other cute motivational quotes like that. I did manage to meditate and exercise a little on SL, now it’s time to do that in RL as well. I am positive.

A few words about the products: Hair is new from Exile, really cute and reminded me a lot of Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft ponytail. Leggings and shoes are new from Addams, in so many different textures/colors I don’t even remember now. The armband is from Astralia and the whole decor is from Collabor88 as well. You can find everything listed in the credits below.
