Cutting Corners

Standard

Sometimes i like to take a break from clothes and avatars and do a little furniture and decor post, so today i bring you all a little bit of the Four Walls Hunt  that is ongoing until the end of the month.

Again i feel so happy for the coming of mesh, i look at these pics and see such huge improvements in quality when it comes to all rezzable objects available at this time. This last year or so made furniture quality bloom, and most of all diversity with not only more details but lower land impacts, and the huge amount of more blog posts on furniture, houses and home decor shows how much the market grew.

So today here it is a small sample of some items available on the hunt, (Check the creators list here) and a few bits and bobs i had about in my inventory.

See you all again soon, and remember to enjoy your SL Homes.

Totally Unhinged

Standard

Today is the 15th and the last day of Unhinged, for a month now we´ve had this amazing event up, all made possible due to the help of a lot of amazing people, there was no way i could take pictures of all these people and stick it, but i wanted to show of these pretty poses from Exposeur, and these ladies where just handy and they also put in a lot of work into making sure this event happened, so i give to you all, Sonya Marmurek, Nephilaine Protagonist, Orcsy, Axi Kurmin and Chandra Masala.

From the start when the idea come up Eku had no surgery schedule the event and all the money made it possible for her to have it a week and half ago, and she´s already home already feeling the benefits from the surgery. All because of a lot of people, some in this picture but a lot more behind the scenes, from anonymous donors, to amazing creators, to pretty cool DJ´s and some awesome bloggers we got this event started, and going for a month.

I´m honestly lost when it comes to words to thank all these people, i´m actually lost i don´t think there are enough thank yous for everyone, And now we have just a few more hours left for the event to end and like when it started, there´s no right hour for the end, and everything will be up as the music keeps flowing and the people keep stopping by, so stop over, come and dance, shop if you wanna, or just hang out, and scream welcome at Eku as soon as she´s up.

And i´ll just leave you all to go and give both Eku and Yure a big virtual hug.

How do you walk on water?

Standard

I do it barefoot and today i do it in a COLLABOR88 look and mood, because the 8th was yesterday and as usual it´s COLLABOR88 time, and the July edition made me scream and jump of joy, first because i love the event, second because this months edition is even better than last month´s, third because i see some shops i love have become regulars, and also a few new faces, and fourth i promised my friend Geni a makeover soon, and it came just in time for it.

And today i bring you a dreamy walking on water and air look in this gorgeous Schadenfreude dress, which i totally fell in love with as soon as i saw the preview on flickr, along with the matching shoes, which i´m saving for a later blog.

I was extremely happy to see Schadenfreude again at C88 and has a permanent participant, also amazing at this months edition is the jewelry, not only the Maxi Gossamer, and LaGyo i´m wearing, but all the other jewelry makers at the event that i will show of later.

The skin i´m wearing is also from the event and by Glam Affair, and i think it´s a must for any shopper who likes their skins, it´s a clean basic bare skin and i was really impressed to see it at the event, it´s so versatile and you can simply add on the makeup layers you wish over it, like i did here, with these gorgeous, whites by Pin me down.

Finally let´s talk about hair, and this one is a classic by Elikatira and one of her first mesh works, and since i mentioned hair, is everyone has anxious as i am about Hair Fair? It´s about to start, most specifically next Saturday the 14th, and i´m waiting as many anxiously.

See you all again soon with my usual shops that i like later and have all a good start of the week.

… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

Standard

The title of today´s blog is part of a quote, by a comedian i admire a lot, Joanna Lumley, and the full quote goes like this:

I find it a great antidote… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

And today i bring you all of them, lipstick is the most important one today probably and part of a blogger challenge started by Cajsa Lilliehook,  so for it i picked this pretty skin from essences available at  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, and one of the several lipstick options that come with it. I also bring you a lot of Hairspray in this new Clawtooth, hair made specially for COLLABOR88 .

Also from COLLABOR88 are these gorgeous shoes from Ingenue (available in several colours)  and the lovely dress by Schadenfreude ( available in a wide diversity of patterns, and sizes, including kid size).

And last  but not least mirrors, the thing about mirrors is, it´s fine when you hold up them to yourself, to admire your look, to look for faults in it, but with what i do have issues, is when people insist on holding up mirrors to others expecting to see their own reflection.

So i would love to see a lot less mirrors about at the end of the day,  a mirror only reflects what is there, not your wishes, and reflecting your wishes on others, steals them of their own reflection, making all those holding mirrors look foolish.

And this long rant is basically about feeling good about oneself, wearing what we love, what we choose, and not being held hostage to the mirrors other wave at us.

Spring Fever at COLLABOR88

Standard

It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!

Mark Twain

I´m in Spring Fever, it´s true I look outside every single morning, looking for that ray of sunshine, I look at every tree on my way to work to see if they show little sprouts about to blow.

The coldest weather is basically gone and the showers that followed it end in the sun peaking in, meanwhile in SL the ground textures are changed, the treed start gaining their tress, and the snow slowly disappears from rooftops and bridges, all those carefully placed prims take refuge into our inventories, hoping next year they will again bask in the grid´s sun.

And best of all is every store is showing off their summer collections, while we ponder what we need and look tru our more skimpy clothing folders, and everyone has Spring Fever.

An nowhere is this fever more evident than a COLLABOR88, this awesome monthly event, and one of my favorites is totally filled with goodies, some of them I´m wearing here while i wait for the sun to fill up the March skies.

My Nasty Sins

Standard

The Festival of SIN is up since Saturday, I stopped by on sunday morning trying to avoid the lag that is usual during these events.
After going tru most of it slowly, and mostly camming about, I managed to do some shopping, and reflected about all my nasty and delightful little sins.
Greed is one of my worst ones, of course like most bloggers I want all the things my hoarding abilities extend from everything, clothes, textures, shoes…And i can´t be stopped. Halp!!!

Wrath, it comes and it goes, sometimes it´s understandable, sometimes it´s not warranted like everyone else´s. Aww poor man who faces a woman´s wrath.

 I can´t sing, I never could, i tried honestly, to learn but even years in a choir did nothing, it´s a gift I certainly lack, while others where naturally born to do it and I definitely envy them.

This is the one sin i give into daily, gluttony, one of my many vices is chocolate, I know, I know. I love it so much, I cannot stay away from it, so what I decided some years ago is, have a little piece of chocolate everyday, it doesn´t have to be big, but have it.

Ah, Lust! Don´t we all lust for that special someone? I love you Darwie.

I try not to be proud but sometimes it will hold me back from picking up that phone and saying I´m sorry.

Sloth and telly go so well together, sometimes it doesn´t matter what´s even on, sometimes it´s just background noise, others is perfect for a bowl of popcorn and some cuddling in the couch.

Visit the Festival of SIN open until the end of February Festival of SIN
