Under the sea

I went for a walk today and ended up at Under the sea, the latest installation by artist Cica Ghost. It’s beautiful, eerie and a bit horrific with the creepy sea creatures, but also so very SL and amazing! The need to knows: Hair Esme by Iconic

Deepika

It was raining again today… and then I got to work and it started pouring. Pouring emergencies, phone calls, unexpected unpleasantries.. just one of those days. But then I went home, had a last really good project call and then … Collabor88 time! Ready for the deets? Hair Not Today by Exile (C88)

With Cherie on top!

This lovely sexy and cute dress is hitting Poppy‘s mainstore today! Ros and I had so much fun bossing Rui around on Skype while the poor guy was sharing his blender screen with us, changing the model on the go… “Want more ruffle over there… ” “I need a little loop on the back to pull on the string”  “pull it tighter on the waist”, I’m surprised he didn’t start yelling at us. *grins* Can’t promise that won’t happen in the future though, we’re planning on more great things down the line!

Somebody that I used to know

Title explanation… no drama, the song was playing at the Neverfar sim when I was just over there to shoot these pics :). Happy Monday everyone! Hope it’s a good one, after a great weekend! I’m wearing Baiastice’s tatoo dress, which I missed the first time I went to this month’s Uber because, well, lag and rezzing issues… but how pretty is this? It’s borderline fussy, but with the right amount of sheer and awesomely tailored, it’s really just stunning and crazy sexy without revealing much. Wear it with a pair of impossibly high stiletto heels or strappy sandals, and no one will take you for a wallflower!   Need to knows: Hair Mico by Dela (Uber)

Oichi

Hi there! Blogging from the cozy of my bed this morning! I just woke up, made some coffee, hopped back under the covers and decided to log on to see what had happened over night. Life is good!
What’s also really good are these Oichi trousers that Azuchi will have out for Uber, which is starting in little under 1 hour! Gearing up already to get in? Seriously though, I don’t know many creators who rock materials the what Sands Leavitt from Azuchi does. Look  at this leather! It’s soft and supple and … well, kick ass really! The adorable crop Vitality top is from Atomic at this round of N21. There is a matching skirt available to go with it, and it’s lovely, but for this look I wanted the sass of the pants to match the floral loveliness of the top.   Need to knows:

Chloe and Poppy

Currently in my SL, there are two things I am super excited about, so it’s time to combine them in a blog!! The first is Chloe, the next bento head by LeLutka. She will be released tomorrow (Friday February 24), that is, if SL decides to play nice and the LeLutka team will be able to finish the release as scheduled.
Chloe has a potentially more youthful look than Simone, as per popular request. The most visible difference with Simone is her mouth which is curvier than Simone’s, with naturally upturned mouth corners (making her look angry will require some serious and I mean SERIOUS shaping skills!) and generally she looks, I don’t know, sweeter if you will. It will take a lot to make me switch indefinitely from Simone to Chloe because Simone has been me for so long, but on the other hand, I adore this face as well! On the back of the system, there have been a couple of updates on LeLutka lately. Those of you who are wearing Simone have noticed so.… Read the restChloe and Poppy

La Patata Azul

While checking out Meraki, the location where I shot for today’s blog, I found this cute little bar/café down by the sea, called la Patata Azul. BAM… there we have the odd title of this post explained!
It’s a really pretty and relaxing place, with a couple of nice builds and lots of nooks for nice pics! Hair with cap JoJo by Truth

Running Errands

I found this pretty hair by VoluptaVirtualis at this edition of Whimsical, which has just opened its doors. it’s made by Druunah Esharham, one of the owners of Aisling. I hope she’ll do more hair in the future because this is just so pretty. The rose is texture change, and for this outfit, I picked the sunny yellow one! I went to run a couple of errands at Saint Pete’s. Still one of the best sims to made some pics when you are looking for a nice town environment. Carefully landscaped by the fabulous Neva Crystal, Saint Pete’s simply can’t disappoint.   Hair Kiara 2 by VoluptaVirtualis (Whimsical)

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
Mesh head Simone 2.4 by LeLutka

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)

It snows inside

for this post with Zenith‘s Sweater dress with long scarf I went to the beautiful snowy sim of Furillen. it’s desolate, cold and beautiful. and even inside this building it was snowing (well, duh, particles are not stopped by walls, but hey, it adds to the cold effect). The dress comes with a HUD for the scarf, so that you can give it different colours and is fitted for the Maitreya body. I’m wearing it with Just Design‘s Lacey shoes. Not really shoes to wear in the snow, but my pixels don’t get cold! My hair is Nao by Argrace and I am still wearing my beloved Simona head by LeLutka and Glam Affair‘s Simona applier. I turned off the eye make up, and applier Zibska‘s Kelan lipstick in a pale beige to match the soft white and yellows of my outfit. Furillen, aside from being beautiful, is also very photographer friendly. the Furillen group is free to join and it lets you rez props if you need to. That way, I was able to make a quick projector for the lamp in the building, so that it actually looks like a floodlight and throws a shadow.… Read the rest

MANDATORY WINTER POST

In my RL part if the world, it foesn’t really feel ike winter yet, but in SL more and more places are getting a wintery look, and lets be fair, in a world where today’s snow is not sleet and mud tomorrow, where it’s always pristinely white and even when it snows all day, you will not be snowed in unless you place the snowdrifts at your door all by yourself, winter is gorgeous and fun! I went to Wonchewcome Inn Resort resort to take some pics and it’s gorgeous, as you can see. A large log lodge by Rebourne dominates the sim, surrounded by a couple of smaller cabins. Through the entire sim a rustling creek leads your way along the photogenic spots. As you can see, the wildlife is undisturbed by and absolutely not afraid of the occasional respectful visitor and a small family of beavers works continuously to make their burrow even more comfortable and insulated against the outside cold. I htink my favorite place on the sim is the skating rink.… Read the rest

After Thanksgiving, owner Harlow Heslop is going to do a big seasonal overhaul. Can’t wait to see the magic she’ll work on the sims! If you’re into exploring, there is a photography scavenger hunt going on at Blithe (until November20). It’s great fun hunting down the items that you need to capture on a pic!! (info here) And because I’m in love with the beauty of these sims….. here, have some pics straight from SL!
