Taking a walk

Seriously, this week has been awesome. Despite post surgery stuff, sleeping lots and feeling pretty meh on and off, the opportunity to have a week to myself with no place to go except SL, to explore and rediscover and actually for the first time in months really enjoying myself again while doing so is pretty great!
Today I went to this beautiful sim, Le Sixieme Sens, for a bit of exploring, and while the name is French, the landscape is definitely Tuscan. Sunflowers and poppies covering gentle hillsides, a desolate old Rustica amidst vines and thick, centuries old olive trees take me straight back to the area around Arezzo and Siena. For the walk I am wearing: Hair Delaney by Truth

Once upon a time

Once upon a time, on a far away grid there lived this pretty bunch of pixels that even after a lifetime of shopping still wasn’t bored with the wonders that Collabor88 has to offer month after month…. Oh well, you know how that ends, right?
And then a new round of Collabor88 started on the 8th of the new month and Shoparella lived happily ever after, albeit constantly broke….

“So I said, can you believe he did that?”

No better talk than one with your dog, who looks at you with understanding, loving eyes, no matter how much you are rambling. OK, maybe he just wants that doggy treat you have in your pocket.
Your secrets are safe with him, he doesn’t get drunk and doesn’t leave his shoes all over the place.  On the other hand, you do need to hoover or mop your house every day because ugh, dog hair! Anyway, if it were not for me being gone for work all day usually, and I really don’t want to have to leave a dog alone all day, I would so have one to walk with and talk to. And a couple of cats, but lets face it, they would own me instead of vice versa! Hair Lovesong by Lamb

La princesse et la digue

It would have been too easy to dress up royally and then take a photo at some ball room, or a castle. But contrasts are making an image stronger, so this princess ended up at La digue du Braek for this shot. Love that sim. It’s so desolate. Sad almost with a special kind of industrial beauty, if that even makes sense. Diadem by Avaway

Window Shopping

I have too much time at my hands this week, recovering from surgery, being home, sleeping lots and thinking about the future of my blog.  Lately I am fed up with the black and whites, so I am going back to colour. How’s that for a change? Also, I want to shoot more out on the grid, and not all the time on my platform and in a way, going back to basic with little to no post processing! Now I feel like shopping for another lay out as well so lets see how that is going, no? Maybe I even get to update my blog roll….. welcome to the 21st century Graz!! Speaking of shopping, Have you been to Collabor88 yet? The initial crazy is over and the lag has died down a lot. Time for some pretty stuffs, right? And there is a lot of pretty this month with a theme that is somewhat inviting to folklore and colourful nostalgia! Hair Tiana by Phoenix (C88)

Lyrical

click through for full colour version I’m fairly sure in all those years I have shared how I love dancing, ballet specifically, and how intensely I trained when I was younger. I never had the figure of a dancer, so I would have never made it into the academy, but that didn’t stop me from trying to become the best possible dancer. Dance Studio by Soy (C88)

Hitting the gym… or not

Click through for full colour version I always wonder how many new year’s resolutions survive the first month… of not week of the year. I have pretty much stopped making them, because I do better just trying my best all year through and not having that extra pressure of “a new year”  However, I hate the gym. I positively hate it. I love working out, I dance a lot at home to keep in shape, but I can’t with the smell, the sounds and the general atmosphere of a gym. Either way, the sporty theme of this round of Collabor88, starting tomorrow is pretty brilliant and I’m looking forward to see all the items that the participating creators have come up with!

What happened, Miss Simone?

Click through for full colour version Finally! A year after the initial release of LeLutka’s Simone, the Bento version of this much loved head is about to  be released. The LeLutkas have been working their shapely arses off on this head and the results are amazing.
I have not yet tried a Bento head before that is easier to work with. She reacts flawlessly to slider manipulation and the expressions are flawless. I’m referring you to the LeLutka blog for all the features that this head has. Personally I am stoked with the HUD redesign and the solved alpha issues. The fact that Simone is now fully Omega compatible is also something that many people will love (but please… always try demos first!!) Above I’m showing you the various tabs of the HUD, as well as samples of how Simone will look on a variety of shapes (you’ll be able to find those shapes on the MP after Simone is released btw). I am wearing her here with the also soon to be released new Glam Affair’s Sammy for LeLutka.… Read the rest

I’m trying, k?

Click through for full colour version Hmmm… ’tis the season right? But as usual, I am not feeling it. I have been thinking about how the Cindy Lou Who from my childhood years has practically turned into the Grinch over the years. It’s not that I hate Christmas, but I am always having a hard time in December. I think it has something to do with the time when my dad became ill and we wondered for 3 years in a row whether “this would be the year we could celebrate Christmas together for the last time” before he actually passed and Christmas without him became a reality.
We have desperately tried as a family to build awesome memories, to make it the best time of the year and while there are precious memories for sure, it has always caused me so much stress between work, social obligations and the bittersweet Christmas days that to date (It’s been 3 years that dad is gone now) I can’t enjoy the season. Maybe i will find that holiday cheer back at some point, but for now, my ideal Christmas is quiet… just me and my guy, far from all the social and family gatherings, a tree and some beautiful music.… Read the rest

Santa Baby

Click through for full colour version This short prom dress from Zenith is absolutely adorable. I was torn between the blue and the pink version and pink eventually won in this case… but the blue one, oh my, it’s gorgeous! It’s available at this month’s Collabor88. Same goes for the Sugar platforms from Fri.day. I an still wearing my beta Simone 2.9 bento head from LeLutka, this time with the default skin it comes with (made by the talented Aida Ewing from Glam Affair) with the Reina hair from Monso, another Collabor88 release. I so adore what Monso is doing texturewise. The wispy styles are very casual and cute. I really wanted to add some antlers to my Flottante puppy by Anc, but i couldn’t find some that would adjust enough to fit its head…. so no Rudolph pupper for me!

I’ve been waiting

Click through for full coloured version My discovery with LeLutka‘s Simone 2.0 which is yet to be released is continuing. Today I am wearing her with Itgirls‘ Alessa skin and make ups. I’m also sporting the Bento pro-hands from Vista, which I managed to tint fairly well to match the Itgirls skintone. My pose is also bento ready… it’s from the Fine Sands set from Sweet Lovely Cute. On my Maitreya Lara body I am wearing Have Unequal‘s Isetan top and panties, currently available at The Chapter 4 as well as their Zanaty sandals, available at Any Body. My hair is the lovely Mara from Littlebones, from this month’s Collabor88!
Oh well, and since I am at it… the Gustavian Bed I am posing on is from Dutchie, the poofed curtains are from Death Row Designs‘ Lovers Nest set (Gacha). The storage basket is by Pilot and the suitcase is coming from Death Row Designs again, from their Mystery Mansion Gacha. set. The hat box is fro Apple Fall, the books on top of it are from  Digs and the hurricane lamp on top of it is from the Casolare set by The Loft.… Read the restClick through for full coloured version

Every girl wants to be a princess

Click through for full coloured version I’m so excited!! LeLutka is working hard on finishing their Bento head, Simone 2.0. While there is no release date yet, with Bento having gone live, I think it can’t be that long anymore. Also, LeLutka has posted a small update on their flickr stating that everyone who wears their current Simone head upon buying Simone 2.0 will be getting a rebate of the original head’s purchase price which is L$ 2.500! I am wearing a beta version here, so while there still may be minor changes, this does give a pretty good impression of how gorgeous she is going to be. For this image, I have used Glam Affair‘s Georgie, which is now out at Collabor88 and otherwise I am wearing Exile‘s Class Act, Ison‘s Sugarplum dress (holy boobage!!!) and jewelry from LaGyo‘s Noelle collection (earrings and crown) all released at this month’s Collabor88
