Hoop dreams

Good morning folks! I’m one happy girl today as Autumn has finally arrived in Athens. It rained for a while yesterday and it rained for good. It’s been a while since that last happened and Jules did make a good point by saying it’s a matter of time before I start complaining about the rain, but come on, this isn’t London. We don’t get rains often and when we do, they’re usually catastrophic but I still love them.

Today I’m showcasing some “last minute finds” (I believe that’s the expression) from the Arcade, before this round ends and comes back in December. Starting tomorrow I have a bunch of decor posts for you to see plus some fashion ones. So stay tuned!

Modern intellect

Good morning peeps. We only got one week left before the month ends and October arrives. That means there is only a week left before some events wrap it up and some of the releases there are retired. I’m talking about the Arcade of course, which in case you didn’t know, has some gacha stuff that are event exclusives.

Now, if you’re like me, sometimes you will see something you like but think, “it can wait, I’ll get it later”. If you like it too much though, I think now is the time to get it. Unfortunately I don’t have a list of the products that are not going to be available for sale after the event ends, which is why, I wouldn’t risk it.

So today (and tomorrow) I’ll be showing you some of the products you might missed from the Arcade. Besides, Salem is coming up so I need to dust off my pumpkins and flying brooms.

Warm-up

Good morning! I wasn’t going to post this picture today as I didn’t really like it, but then again this baby doll from Addams and socks from Friday are too cute to just skip. And frankly, I don’t have the time to redo it. Sorry guys. Besides I had the scene ready from my blog post yesterday. So let’s consider this post a warm-up and I’ll come back tomorrow with something better.

Nirvana

Good morning! Naming decor posts is definitely something I’m not good at. Naming all posts in general is hard, but usually, when there is a subject in a picture, it can inspire you more. Which is the reason why I’m often borrowing the designers’ titles for their releases – it’s super convenient. This is also the case today. It had to be either Nirvana or Florist.

[ keke ] participates in the new round of Shiny Shabby with this nirvana set which consists of a lot of decoration/furniture pieces and in many color options. I was very glad to see her making a full set again – it has been a while. Ariskea’s release at the Arcade complimented the set beautifully. You can never go wrong with flowers, right?

Have a look at the credits below for a detailed list of the products used and enjoy your shopping and decoration.

Good morning world! Someone overslept and now is trying to do everything she was supposed to do the whole morning, in only one hour. So no introductions today, just a quick mention to the cutie beside me, Hara, who I’m not sure what she’s wearing but it’s definitely pretty. Oh wait, no, she’s just posted hers. You can have a look here. Also to Lily Lovelace, who made this pose and apparently, apart from being an amazing photographer, she makes pretty poses too. Have a look below for all the details.

Fall vibes

Good morning! I don’t have much time today so I’m going to post this and run straight to work. No, don’t take this as enthusiasm. It’s not. It’s probably guilt, as I have so much work to do since yesterday and apparently, working for 10 hours isn’t good enough! Ugh!

Anyways, today’s post features some fashion stuff from the Arcade. Have a look at the credits below for every one of them and enjoy shopping. The scene details can be found on my blog post yesterday.

Rustling leaves

Good morning world and happy Monday! We’re having a moody weather in Athens today, still warm but very cloudy and possibly rainy later so today’s post feels appropriate. Autumn is here for good and it was about time it arrived.

The picture features a lot of new stuff from the Arcade. So grab your coffee and enjoy reading the long list of credits. It was great fun working on this picture for so many reasons. Mostly because it’s about Autumn which I have missed, (there’s a limit to the number of bikinis I can blog apparently) but also because I got to be creative and use a lot of different items, mix them together and hopefully make a nice picture.

Arcade has been open for several days now, so getting in the sim shouldn’t be a problem anymore. Good luck and have fun!

There is a follow-up fashion picture I made using this scene, which I’m not loving but might post tomorrow to get it out of the way. We’ll see!

Rest on the silence

Good morning world! As promised, here’s the post of the scene I used for my picture yesterday. It’s the new 22769 stuff, currently at the Arcade. Here’s 3 things you should know about them:

1. This gacha set is event-exclusive, which basically means, it will be no longer available after the event is over.

2. Their materials, when lit, come to life. Put some light on them and see what I mean.

3. The “portrait from the other side” common item (the guy with the mustache you see in that portrait by the table) is a bit spooky and definitely brilliant. Play with it by turning your camera up, down, left and right and enjoy.

The Firecrackers

Good morning peeps! In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t post anything yesterday. Intentionally. Do you remember, months ago, when I was complaining about having no free time and that posting daily is wearing me out? Well, it happened. I can feel it, especially now that RL work has been busier than ever. So I finally decided I’ll post every other day. Yes, I’ll do it. Stop it…I will! Sorry, the voices in my head were disagreeing!

Today’s post has definitely been a fun one. Mostly because I got to collaborate with two great friends. Hara (left) and Alexa (right). I’m sure you’re already familiar with their amazing work but in case you’re not, click on their names and check it out.

The post features the new stuff Salt & Pepper, Tableau Vivant and Tentacio released at the Arcade. I also have to mention that the scene we used is made from the stuff 22769 made for the Arcade as well, but since you can’t really see anything in this picture, I will blog those separately in another post.
