Day Drinking

 As I was building this scene, even before I’d decided whether to put myself in it or not, I kept thinking to myself “clutter, more clutter” thanks, Adalynne *snickers* Seriously, I had a lot of fun creating this scene and I took a lot of pieces from different creators to do it but all in all I think it turned out pretty well.

On9 is in full force and you still have time to get over there and get some truly amazing items, like this kitchen from Newchurch. This set comes with 10 pieces, all separately so you can move them to the desired position, I chose to create a corner nook with my pieces and added some various gacha pieces and other decor items to complete my look. I’ll get into those in a bit. There are poses built into several of these pieces like the stove and sink.

I went to The Epiphany, which opened today, with a very specific goal in mind. I got distracted along the way, but I got my goal in the long run. Hive has this adorable vintage kitchen clutter gacha available right now. There are a total of 11 pieces, 1 rare and 10 commons. The exclusive prize is that beautiful piece of art that says “The Secret Ingredient is Always Love”. You can redeem unwanted gachas for point and redeem those points for exclusive prizes.

Jian, of course, has another adorable animal gacha at The Epiphany. The Dashing Dalmations and when I saw this little guy I had to have him. He was completely perfect to complete my scene of exasperation. 16 commons and 3 rares can be yours when you play for this set.

I love Doe hair, eventually, I’d like to be an official blogger for this store but until that day comes I will continue to buy these adorable styles. This gacha includes 14 commons and 4 rares and comes as an unrigged mesh, so it’s perfect for all your little ones out there too. The HUD also offers the option to turn your bangs on and off.

The pose is from Foxcity and the fatpack comes with this exclusive pose with an attachable cup. I thought it was perfect for my sheer lack of will to complete the task at hand, cleaning up this filthy kitchen!

Home at last…. She didn’t even have time to clean here vanity bench. It was the last show of the season. Thank God. She rubbed her temples, then let her long nails trail through her hair. it was relaxing. She felt the buzz of her phone. There was only one person that would call this late… She smiled and answered… “I just got home. Didn’t even change yet,” She smirked through her words. “I’ll see you soon.”

Life doesn’t require us to be the best, only that we try our best

Hello everybody,  I seem to have lost track of days since I took a break lol so was super happy to realise this morning it’s Thursday and the weekend is around the corner yay!

As some may notice, or maybe you won’t lol I will not be blogging daily for the foreseeable future more likely a few times per week,  this is a decision made over the past few weeks as I have decided I want to take my blog to the next level,  grow more, learn more,  experiment more, something I have not had the time to do whilst blogging daily,  trust me when I say I am not going anywhere lol in fact quite the opposite, so with that decided I made some decisions which I’ve put in place,   got a whole bunch of tutorials I want to take time to go through and hopefully over the coming months, you’ll notice new things within my blog 🙂

Enough rambling for now though today I get to show you a few more items from the December Deco(c)rate box, if you haven’t subscribed to this months yet be quick as it will be released in just a few days on January 8th so make sure you reserve your copy before then, I’m already super excited.   For more information on Deco(c)rate check out their website here.

The other event I’m showing items from is Cosmopolitan which started it’s new round a few days ago, be sure to check it out if you haven’t already, links are below.

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.

This cute hair is from Phoenix and is available right now at FaMESHed. This hair comes with a style HUD that includes four styles plus the option to turn the bangs on and off.

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.

Memories of You

I could sit here for hours looking at my phone, looking through photos taken in the past. I could go through boxes and boxes of photos thinking about all the amazing memories made and enjoying the trip down memory lane. I swear this sweater and pose took a trip together  as they are about perfect for one another. As for the memories I speak of, come on dig in your inventory and look through some of those moments you deemed worthy of a snapshot. What did you laugh at, who did you love. Are those memories bitter sweet or are they just sweet and delightful to look through.
