So this morning has been a crazy fun morning. Over the weekend, the lovely Ana Came to me and decided the Robin Dress from ChicModa would be perfect for our long awaited collab. Little did I know, this is her first one! Sooo YAY!!! Congrats and welcome to the world of stepping off your platform and into the …. “Real World” haha . teasing ūüėČ

All jokes aside, I met Ana in 2016 when I first joined the ChicModa team. It is crazy to believe this year marks two years! :O She has always been supportive and lending a listening ear for me when I need her. Some days, I’m not sure I could go without that little extra push from her. I can truly say, she is one of the ones that has watched me grow, but also one of the weights behind the growth. She always brings a smile to face and laughter to my heart. Thank you Ana for asking me join in today and cheers to many more. Even if we do get a little goofy. ūüėČ

I heart you!

9 to 5

I am dedicating this post to all the hardworking designers and bloggers in Second Life. There has been so much back and forth lately, mostly on Facebook and some on places like SL Secrets, that I thought it’d be nice to remind people that what designers do isn’t easy, nor is what bloggers, at least the ones that are in it for the right reasons. It seems to me that there are people who believe what designers do just happen, that there is no work to it. The truth of the matter is they have to think of a design, create it in a 3D meshing program, rig it for umpteen bodies, look for imperfections, upload it, texture it, box it, price it, make vendor ads, and sometimes they do this all on their own. Some designers are lucky and have a team to help them with aspects of the process but most are not.

Bloggers don’t have to create the items but what we do is just as difficult, picking items from various creators to put together in a showcase that make the designers look their best. It takes time to style, build a scene, pick a pose, take pictures, edit, and then create a blog no matter what time of blog you do. Yes, there are some bad apples out there but not all of us and we should all be respected for what we do individually not as a collective. The last time we check we are human not The Borg.

This decor set is what actually inspired this entire post, the decor, outfit, and writing. Paper Moon is at Gacha Guardian with Creator Burnout. This set includes 10 commons and 2 rares plus an awesome Gift of the Guardians. I love that the rare laptop shows reminders about setting up for events, photoshop, a 3D mapping program, and IM popups. This is truly the life of a designer, always thinking, always creating, all the while trying to have some kind of life. It is not easy and a designer should be respected for their craft.

The skin I chose is from Spirit and is actually a new year’s eve gift for group members. The group is free to join and this skin comes in two tones and is made for Catwa only, I’m showing it on Catwa Catya. It also comes with a shape and although I don’t know what head it’s made for it looks pretty good with Catya. The shape¬†is modifiable but I left it as is to show you how it looks out of the box. You do have to buy the body skin appliers separately if you don’t already own them.

I chose makeup from Indulge Temptation and Avi-Glam as well as lashes from AlaskaMetro. The eyeshadow from Indulge Temptation is from The Makeover Room and works for Catwa only, it comes in 12 individual color palettes. The lipstick and eyelashes are from December’s Catwa Powder Pack. Powder Pack has changed up how they do things starting with the new year. They will rotate the Lelutka and Catwa boxes every other month. This month will be the Lelutka pack and can be pre-ordered for 1500L. If you wait for the release the price goes up to 3000L and all previous packs can be purchased at the full price as well.

The moral of this story is think before you complain, designers and bloggers alike don’t have it easy. Most of us do it because we love it, for some designers, this is their income, their livelihood and spread bad words about them without facts hurts their business. Talking badly about bloggers as a whole makes it hard for the good ones to get work. So just think before you speak.

Everyday is Christmas

 

I woke up yesterday morning to amazing new, I’d been accepted as an official blogger for Llorisen. I am so excited to be able to incorporate the fantastic builds from this amazing creator into my new decor attempts. I’ve had some really encouraging comments and thoughts on my decor scenes and I appreciate all of them. Decor is daunting to me, always has been and I tried to break out of my shell once before but stepped away because I felt that my scenes didn’t do justice to the amazing creators providing me items. This time I’ve had a little help and take my time in building a scene, moving items to fit my pictures. So I am going to give this an honest effort and do my very best to bring you stunning items for our absolutely amazing and creative decor creators in Second Life.

Llorisen¬†is at FaMESHed with this fabulous, four-bedroom skybox. What I love the most about this skybox is that it comes with optional wall and flooring HUDs, you can paint your walls to be mix and match or all one color and each room is individually changeable. The skybox can be purchased for 499L and each texture HUD for 149L. I didn’t do a shot of each room, I’m not that confident yet in my decorating capabilities but I chose the main room and a cute Christmas setting.

I included the texture change tree from Jian, presents from Astralia, decor from Moss & Mink, Chez Moi, The Loft & Aria, Half Deer and Krescendo. There is so much cute holiday decor out right now you don’t want to miss out.

This super cute pose is a new release from Reve Obscura, it is a bento pose which means it requires a bento viewer (not optional) and bento-enabled hands for the best use. It comes with a present to hold and is so super cute, I thought it fit perfectly in with my scene.
