Adventure is just outside the window…

Good morning world. We have a saying in Greece, “Τετάρτη μπήκε, βδομάδα βγήκε” which literally means, “Wednesday entered, week exited” or can be loosely translated to Happy Humpday! Last weekend I didn’t rest or chill at all, therefore I’m really looking forward to this one and I’m already coming up with excuses on how to get out of work on Saturday.

I have also started to think about what I want to do this summer. Is it too early, you think? Last Summer, due to some incidents I didn’t go on vacation so I owe it to myself this year. I have absolutely no idea on what to do or where to go but I think it’s time I started to work on that as well. I love to travel, usually outside of Greece but to be honest, it’s really hard to leave Greece during the summer. What are your plans for the summer? If you have any good ideas, please share.

Anyways, I woke up early today so I felt like rambling a little. Let’s move on to the stuff. This picture is more of a fun post for me as most of the items used are not new releases. And the title is a reminder for me…

The skybox is from hive and was last month’s luxebox release since Scarlet Creative was not in that round. Most of the decor is from 22769 from past releases. Then you have some pretty frames from keke and the console set is from Newchurch from last round of Cosmopolitan event, which is bi-weekly so I didn’t make it on time. Events that only last for two weeks really stress me out! The set should be at the mainstore now. The hair I’m wearing is from Truth, last month’s vip group gift and it’s the 3rd time I’m blogging it but I just love it that much! Last but not least, the romper is from Me Sew Sexy from the current round of The Chapter Four. Have a look at the credits below for more details and have fun shopping.

Good morning world! And happy Easter. I’m a bit hungover from last night so I won’t make sense if I start rambling for too long. I’ll just cut to the chase. Genesis Lab. participates in the new round of The Epiphany with gacha goodies of course, among which, they give out a bento head. Yes, you read that right. It’s a rare one but come on… You can’t be that unlucky. Unless you’re like my bestie Jules who never, ever gets the gacha she wants. He he… Apart from the head, you can get phones which include a hud with bento poses and phone cases. Last but not least, skin and make-up appliers for this brand new bento head. Check the gacha key for a better look here.

Good morning world! How is everyone? The closer we get to Friday the better my mood gets. Four days off work sound like pure magic at the moment. I don’t have any big plans yet for the Easter than eat, sleep and blog.

Did you know that, according to a research online, your body needs around two days to adjust to a new environment when you’re traveling? I don’t know if it’s true but it does sound reasonable. The research specifically mentioned that if you’re going to have some time off, less than a week, it’s not really worth spending it traveling elsewhere. You won’t be able to feel rested and enjoy the new place as you would, had you spent more days to it. I’m following that advice and staying in Athens for the holidays. It will be a bit weird (I usually travel) but I really don’t care this year.

Today’s post features another new skin applier ItGirls released for Lelutka bento heads this time. I blogged her Catwa release yesterday but this time I needed to show you her newest one. Annie Jolifaunt never sleeps apparently. I can’t complain, I love how she always makes my avatar look like a super model. It’s worn on Simone head, the shape is included as always and it comes in all five available skin tones.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day and be kind to one another.

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.

The unfamiliar host

As you have probably noticed, I have started to create my own scenes for my pictures. It’s been probably a month that I have been doing so and I’m enjoying it so much. I started to do that because I was experiencing issues at sims. Apart from the fact that I like my privacy when I’m working and usually at the sims I would go to, someone would photobomb my pictures, my computer and graphics card wouldn’t allow me to take snapshots on ultra graphics and would eventually make me crash constantly. So finally, my gacha machines obsession, found its purpose. Ever since I’ve been a SL resident, I would always play decor gacha machines, even if it was stuff that didn’t look interesting or necessary to me. I would collect random pieces from each machine and store, because “one day I might need them”. Then, as soon as the opportunity came, I would put them all together to make something beautiful. Hopefully, I have succeeded in most cases.

rezology1

The process usually takes me a couple of hours. Depending on how big my scene is going to be, plus, how many items I’m featuring in one picture. But trust me, it feels so good. Kind of like a puzzle game where you’re given different items and you have to make them all look like they belong together. Makes you become resourceful and come up with ideas that you would have never thought about before. Plus, it helps you grow. I mean, if you’re a blogger, why not start to work with items out of your style too and challenge yourself with something new?

rezology
click for full size

As soon as my scene is ready, I take a small break and then try to think about where I am going to be in it. My goal is consistency. If it’s a kitchen, you don’t want to be in a gown. If it’s a beach you don’t want to be in lingerie. If colors match too, would be perfect.

So, enough rambling for one night. This post features a bunch of new releases, mostly decor stuff. I know the list of credits is super long, but come on. Given the amount of time I spent to create this scene, plus, writing all credits down and linking them to urls, you owe me to at least have a look. He he!

Have a lovely day/night everyone and see you all next time.

Let’s play

Annie Jolifaunt has been one busy lady lately. Especially ever since bento heads have become a new and unique part of SL, she’s been working hard to create shapes, skins and make-up for them, to satisfy all needs. ItGirls has always been one of my favorite appliers store and I believe the reasons why, are obvious. Her Blanca applier for Lelutka is definitely the one I’m addicted to lately. She recently released make-up huds to compliment the skin so I had to share them with you. You can have a look at the huds here. I’m just so glad she keeps me busy with her work. Making portraits all the time has made me memorize Dae‘s tutorials, plus it’s a fun practice. So, yay!

In other news, it’s Friday today  (TGIF-Woot), so that alone, is enough to make your day, isn’t it? I am working tomorrow and it will be another short busy weekend for me again, but at least it’s better than nothing at all. Whatever you do, hope you have a good one and enjoy it. See you all next time!

It’s been a while since the last time I rambled on here, hasn’t it? Today I won’t be rambling either, but at some point, I do have to – I’ve missed it. As you’ve probably noticed, I changed the name of the blog. I have changed the layout many times too. Blog name was originally “Do It Yourself”, a title we both came up with Jules, but since my beautiful bestie has started her own blog, I figured I’d change the title to something more personal. Exis-tence. What do you think?

I’m usually bored easily and constantly change everything in my life (well, not everything, but you know what I mean), therefore I can’t guarantee you that this title will be final, but for now, I’m liking it. If you have some cooler ideas for it, please let me know under the comments below.

rosita3f

Today’s post is another fun picture I made with my friend Rosita. No story behind it, no theme, no concept. Just posing, looking posh and pretty. Hehe.

I have been struggling a lot with SL lately. Real has been super busy, so by the time I get home from work, all I’m able to do is catch up on notices, blogs, flickrs, plurks – the world – and then I get sleepy and doze off. Hopefully I’ll catch up on my pictures this weekend.
