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.

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.

Muse of Spring

Good morning everyone! It’s the weekend finally and I’m excited. I have to work today sadly but I’m in a good mood. That never happens so I guess I need to enjoy this while it lasts. As you probably know, I never ramble in the weekends, giving you the chance to just see some pictures without my nonsense in between, but I need to make a quick mention to the stuff.

march-muse1

We Love RolePlay opens tonight. There are a bunch of new stuff there for you to get and I usually showcase more than one in my pictures but this time I will only show you one. There will be future posts about the others. The outfit is from Sweet Kajira and for Maitreya only. It comes with a tiara and armband as well. It’s designed in the right way for me to also show you the new tattoo from Nanika, currently at The Crossroads. Hair is from Tableau Vivant, from the Hairplay gacha at the Arcade.

march-muse

The scene is from 22769, also at the Arcade. It’s called Colors of Spring and consists of a lot of pretty stuff. Flower pots, pillows, lanterns, basically things you can use to decorate your garden or house, if you want to make it more colorful. Here is the gacha key for you to see.

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

Happy Saturday…

Confinement

I had an awful day at work today. Have you ever noticed – I believe I have blogged about this before- how you get some really bad days sometimes, and not just one, but almost everything goes wrong? Is it like a universal rule where all hell breaks loose in order to teach us a lesson? And what would that be? Cause all I learned today was to “never go to work on a Monday again”.

roses-and-lillies

I will spare you the details but man, oh man… I’ve never been happier that I’m finally home. And yes, I know I keep complaining about my work but come on, bare with me! I’m struggling here! I did have a lovely weekend though, slept much, went out and took a bunch of pictures for you to see. Everything went according to plan.

roses-and-lillies3

Today’s post features the new release from Evolove for TLC. It’s a box and it’s called Confined. Only Evolove has confined me so far in such elegant and picturesque way! The box comes with a hud that allows you to change its color and as always, has a bunch of poses in it. The hair is also new from Tableau Vivant and currently at collabor88. Their past releases have been add-ons and hairbases for Lelutka’s Simone bento head. I’m so digging them! Of course, you can wear the add-ons with any head you like. You just need a tintable hairbase (if it’s not a Lelutka head) in order to match the hair color.

The lingerie is from erratic also at collabor88. There are options for you (brasserie, bodysuit, panties etc) if you get the full set or you can purchase only the parts of it you like/want. Last but not least, the skin applier is from ItGirls, not a new release but one of my favorites of hers.

Immortal Mona Lisa

Constant change. That has been my motto since day 1 of blogging. One of the reasons why I love Secondlife is the opportunity to look different all the time. In my real life I’m stuck with the face I was born with and I’m happy with it (sometimes), so I don’t plan on changing it. But on Secondlife, I can be anything I want to be. This has been a great challenge for me. Changing my appearance all the time, creating different looks, some unique, other common. It is an expensive hobby, I won’t lie. If you’re not blogging for mesh head creators and bodies or skin appliers and you have to actually buy everything you like, can be heavy on your pocket. I have spent a ridiculously large amount of money so far and I don’t see myself stopping that. Even though I have my favorites, it’s hard to choose and only stick to one.

immortal-mona-lisa1

Today’s post features some new releases from We Love Role-Play. My initial idea was to be a vampire again. YS&YS’ super white skin encourages that. Then I saw the creations by Enfant Terrible and Salt & Pepper and knew I had to do it. But instead of the vampire I had in mind, the raw, blood-thirsty one, I decided to make her look more classy and kind of elegant. Nanika’s tattoo from Crossroads complimented her look perfectly.

immortal-mona-lisa

So whether you’re a freak like me or not, even if you can’t afford to buy all different heads/bodies/skins, I highly recommend experimenting with your looks. You can always have your default favorite ones but, in my opinion, every now and then, feels good changing it a little.

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

Happy Valentine’s day! Today’s post is definitely not a Valentine’s post. I’m not in the mood but I encourage everyone to celebrate their butts off. I’m expecting to see a lot of hearts, pink and red stuff and love quotes. I’m prepared, so bring it on! hehe. In the meantime, you know I love to be challenged. I love to be creative as well. It is great fun for me to step out of my comfort zone and work on something different, something that is not usually what I do or feel comfortable doing. Probably because, in this case, I use my mind to actually come up with something nice, to create a theme for my picture but, at the same time, be able to recognise me and my work when I look at it.

Lybra participates in the new round of The Gacha Garden this month, with a Shinobi gacha. I liked the concept of it, so there you go. Had I been better in Photoshop, I would have also drawn some blood stains or something, make it look more realistic, but with my skill set, that would probably take me a week!

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

Rust out

Sometimes, I’m having such a hard time, naming my posts. Usually I get inspired by something I wear or showcase in them. But there are days when nothing seems appropriate or right. Like in this case, I really didn’t want to name my post, Parka. I called it rust out, as the tones in the first picture, kind of reminded me of the color of rust. My first option was Rusty feline, as the panties and glasses have a leopard print, but I figured people would think that’s my nickname or something.

addams2

Today’s post is featuring the new releases by Addams. The beautiful parka which was released a couple of weeks ago and it’s available at the mainstore as well as the Geri Spice dress, available currently at Rewind event. At this point I want to share my experience about this post. Blogging a parka, is not easy. It gave me a hard time, as posing in it, is quite limited. I mean, you can always animate your body in it, sit down, lay down, bend over, fly or whatever but the jacket won’t look completely natural  in this positions. You know when sometimes you’re wearing a long skirt or a gown and when you sit down it surrounds your body but looks completely weird and unnatural? It is what it’s supposed to do but I really don’t like seeing that in pictures. So all I was left with, was only standing poses. Of course there’s nothing wrong with them, but I’m used to working with more intricate and complicated ones. Standing there, didn’t really feel like me.

addams

The hair I’m wearing is a new release by Tableau Vivant. It’s a beautiful updo, with an optional bow on it. It is currently at Collabor88, where you can also grab another style, a ponytail and hairbases for Lelutka heads. The hair of course will work on other heads too, but so far, Tableau Vivant has released hairbases only for Catwa and Lelutka. You can always play with your current head’s tintable hairbase to match the color of the hair you like.

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

See you all next time!

The past few days have been super crazy long and busy. Which is exactly why I won’t ramble as always. In the mood I’m in, bitching is all I can offer right now. Hehe. Just want to mention my friend Rosita, for posing with me for this picture. She’s crazy which makes her perfect! Also quick mention to the new releases from Lybra and Panavia. Skin is new from ItGirls too but you will see it clearly in a portrait I’ll make for it soon. Everything is credited below.

Not much to share with you this morning, so I guess, no news, is good news…and let’s get to the stuff.

Lybra has been very productive this month. Participates in almost every event there is on SL at the moment. I’m wearing her release for the Crossroads event. It’s a bodysuit, for your Maitreya mesh body only and available in 12 colors.

lybra-wip3

The fur cape is from Coco, who never disappoints. Shoes are from N-core, hair is beautiful from Tram and the necklace is from Modern Couture from past On9 round (should be in the mainstore now).

lybra-wip2

The backdrop is a new build from Minimal and gacha for the new round of Chapter Four event. Pretty cool and perfect for photography. The owner and creator seems to be a great person too. I haven’t met him but I’ve had a small issue with the backdrops and he’s been very generous and helpful. I appreciate it Ors Quan, thank you.
