That was the first thing I heard – well read – this morning. And it made this morning just a little brighter. Amazing, what a few nice words can do. Especially when you gotta leave the house while it is raining cats and dogs!
I find myself doing some things lately that were a big no no for me. I love to flirt. Here and there. A few minutes, maybe an hour through a chat at a show, but thats it then for me. “I dont have time for anything like that on SL!” is a sentence all my friends know from me. Try to chat with me on Facebook and you face silence. Expect for a few who I always have an open ear for, be it on SL, on Skype or Facebook. But for a few days I actually enjoy a nice and mostly funny talk exactly there. New year, new Ana? Flirting? Take a wiiiild guess – and as I say a lot, no more comments without contacting my lawyer!^^
Talent is something that amazes me the most. Yes I know, our society these days is focused on hard work, and don’t get me wrong, I have so much respect for everyone who works hard day by day.
Talent is something we can not control. We have it, or not. And we all are different, so everyone has different talents. There are so many people who’s talent amazes me, let me point out just a few. Yeah, I know, you now expect me to mention Sassy – ey, you know that she is talented in many ways. You don’t? Time to check that out for yourself!^^
Two girls made my jaw drop lately though. Sunshine Zhangsun was the first. Not only does she have a great talent to take pictures, she is a wonderful writer, and how she looked right into me after asking only one simple question is even beyond amazing.
The other one was jsut today. Emi, the designer of e.marie. Her rigging for Maitreya Lara is “just” experimental. But that experiment went extremely well. I don’t know why Maitreya makes it so hard for designers to get their designer kit, and excuse me for keeping my thoughts about those “politics” to me. Let me isntead show you what a wonderful work Emi did with this top:
Today is one of these days my mind races around so many things, especially friendship. Sometimes we just rush through life, we are busy running from appointment to appointment, and we are not able to see the really important things in life.
We all have friends. Some have more, some less. Personally I am someone who calls only a few people my friends. Not that I don’t want friends. I have many acquaintances, but friendship is something I take very serious. Although I always have time to listen to people if they need an ear, for friends I am there always. 24/7. For a friend I’d walk through fire. And yes, I have to admit, I get a little overprotective with my closest friends. No one could handle more than 4 or 5 close friends being like that.
Lately I was surprised – not in a good way, I asure you – how easily some people drop what they once called a friendship. Do they really know what friendship means?
My best friend for now over 7 years lives some thousand miles away. Lots of water is between us, and visiting her for a coffee would cost me a few hundred bucks. But that doesn’t matter at all. We laugh together, we share secrets, we have our girls nights. All this is possible these days, thanks to Skype, SL, and espesically flatrates. We had times we barely talked. But that is what a true friendship can handle!
She was there at my worst. When I slipped into my worst crisis, she was a steady rock in my life. Swallowing every shit I threw at her. Accepting my horrible moodswings without kicking my butt (too hard)
Cherish your friendships. Don’t use this word tooo easily. If you tell someone that you love them, then please really mean it, so many use this so powerful sentence constantly, and it actually means nothing to them. Which turns a wonderful sentence into an aweful lie!
Enough emotional stuff for today. Happy Sunday everyone
Sunday morning. One of my favorite times of the week. The house is silent, no one slamming doors, no sounds of footsteps in the stairway – just the beautiful sound of silence. That is when I love to snuggle up with a good book, some coffee and just enjoy the lazyness we usually don’t have time for.
And since it is sunday morning right now, I will stopp babbling, will grab me a good book and will exactly do what I just said – enjoy some lazyness :)

You scream, I scream, we all scream Ice Cream. Am loving the cute 80’s events along with all the bright colors in other events as well. I hope that everyone takes a little time this weekend to relax and enjoy life.
A spring day at a gorgeous park, a sporty new outfit and some amazing previews for the Skin Fair, what more could a girl ask for? Not much really. Skin Fair opened up it’s press release review and there were so many amazing skins, tattoos, makeup, etc I didn’t know where to start. Unfortunately, the budget doesn’t allow me to buy everything but I did get some fun stuff to show you today.
First, we have an all new pose pack from Image Essentials. Viper, named after our wonderful Blogger of the Month, LauraGenia Viper, is a 5 pose pack with mirrors and is Bento compatible, which means it will pose your Bento hands. You don’t need Bento hands to use these poses but you do have to have a Bento viewer. These poses will be available at the March round of Pretty Things starting March 11 and going through the end of the month. The pose pack will be 300L.
There is an all new event starting March 12 called L’Elite, Viki is there with a very cute, sporty top and skirt. This outfit is fit for Maitreya, both Slink, all 3 Belleza, TMP and both Tonic bodies as well as standard mesh sizes. It comes with a HUD for the top and skirt with 8 built-in textures.
Outfit: Viki – Catalina Outfit Spring Maitreya – L’Elite
Mesange is branching out to make amazing shapes, known for her beautiful eyes Jadis decided to make some Bento head compatible shapes and they are lovely. These are exclusive to Skin Fair and each shape comes with a pair of eyes.
Ooh-la-licious is back, after a break to that thing we call RL for a new job she has come back to the Skin Fair with an absolutely amazing skin. This new release is exclusive and made for Catwa, her first Catwa only applier. In this pack, you get the Catwa face applier with 4 brow colors and a no brow option, Omega body applier, hairbase applier, Lipstick HUD with 10 colored lips, a bare gloss and a bare matte option. The pack also includes a faceless, Generation 5 system skin to cover up the default SL body if it decides to peek through.
The next exclusive I’m featuring from the Skin Fair 2017 is from Aurica Store. This full sleeve tattoo with included hand tattoos works with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and Omega and is only 150L. Again this is a Skin Fair exclusive so you will want to go grab it as soon as the fair opens on March 10.
Every time I go visit Maddy’s Gardens by the Bay I find a new place to take pictures. She did such a fabulous job on this sim and you can join the Eclectica Land group through invitation only to have rez rights. I truly love this sim and am in awe every time I visit.
I absolutely adore this hair from Sintiklia, available as a gacha prize at the current round of The Chapter Four this is the Ultrarare and includes all color HUDs, a rigged and unrigged version, a styler HUD with two options (picture one is option 1 with the #15 common bangs). There is one ultrarare, one rare, one uncommon, and 13 common prizes to win.
My last Skin Fair exclusive is from Lovely Disarray, remember how I said the Ooh-la-licious skin came with a no brow option? Well, I for one am very glad it did because I could show you these amazing eyebrows. Made for Catwa and Omega it includes all brows colors as well as a white and gray that are tintable. It also includes a system eyebrow shape.
I had an amazing skin, fabulous hair, what else could I need? Well nails for one. Although I absolutely adore the creators I blog for on nails I *scuffs my foot* blog so much that I’ve covered every nail pack they’ve ever sent, so I decided to hunt for something new to showcase and my journey took me to Kustom9 and the awesome nails from e.Marie, I love e.Marie because she makes nails for Vista Bento hands which means I can paint each nail a different color, it makes your nails so much fun.
While at Kustom9 I found the Mai Bilavio gacha machine *groans* yeah you know me and gachas. So I played, trying to get the rares because it seemed I’d had all the luck so far, and although I didn’t get the rares I did get some amazing eyelashes. The Feline Collection is made for Catwa and Lelutka, make sure you play the right machine though, the Catwa is on the top and Lelutka on the bottom. Catwa has 7 commons and 2 rares to win.
