Springtime fun

Hey there! Long time no see! I’ve been out and about, busy with all kinds of stuff but a few days ago I managed to take this group pic using one of the poses made by Embody. As soon as I tried it out I knew it asked for a “Spring’s here” post! So I called the troops and I have to admit these girls were ready much before I was… and I call myself a blogger, blah!

So, from left to right, let me introduce you to the crew! First in line is Khaya, who is always so sweet and adorable as long as she doesn’t run out of coffee (you’ve been warned!). Then of course is yours truly, one of the most talented, beautiful, amazing… well let’s skip that, you already know it. The pretty lady with the cat shoes to my left is Nevy, and it should be noted that none of us is making hand gestures behind her head. We’re actually good people, see! Last but not least is Del, managing to squeeze a  break into her ever packed agenda to come hang out with us. We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!

All in all it was pretty fun, though people started to cry about their sore joints and muscles long before I was done with the pic. Also, I pestered everyone to copy and send me their outfits, just to decide I’m crediting just mine, or I’d keep this post in stand by for another week. So many things to do, so little time! If you wish to know any specific detail about what the girls are wearing, please leave a comment below and I’ll be more than happy to answer ❤

Snowflakes and frost

Hey there! I’ve been trying to blog this dress since I laid eyes on it, it’s simply stunning! You know when an outfit just seems to happen on its own? Once I had my dress everything fell into place. My hair is the last subscribo gift from Truth and it comes with a HUD which allows you to choose from several colors. This lovely headpiece is one of the three included in the hunt prize from Le Poppycock for The Invitacion Only Hunt. Definitely worth the search, not to mention that gifts are completely free! I’m also wearing a gorgeous necklace and earrings set from Cae. This set is available at the winter edition of The Main Event, which means you can get the necklace at the venue and the matching earrings at Cae’s mainstore. The Main Event is open only until the 14th, so make sure you stop by to pick some exclusive releases for the winter season!

Geek is chic

Hi there! I didn’t have plans to blog again, it’s all Geeks’n’Nerds fault. I was there like 15 minutes before crashing and I saw so much amazing stuff! You guys really need to go check it. My sweater is from ISON, you can pick the sweater color and change the pattern of the shirt via HUD. I almost threw on everything in .Olive.’s blogger box, her Sailor Moon accesories are just lovely! Also, the book geek in me is pleased with the bookstack earrings. I absolutely love the geek mugs from Atooly, the one I’m holding here says “I’m acute nerd”! There are lots of geeky decor at the event too, I just didn’t have time to go through everything but I’ve seen some beautiful furniture blogposts, so if you’re in a geeky mood do some research and go pick your favourites.

You should be proud of me, at least I managed to change my bow for another color. I think I’m gonna be wearing bows til I can change them for Santa Claus hats!

Ravens Rock!

Hello people! Yet another exciting event started yesterday, the Wizarding Faire! This awesome event is themed around all things Hogwarts- related. I’m seriously dazzled with the exceptional work of the designers taking part! What is more, there’s not a single thing that is not related in one way or the other with the magical universe of Harry Potter and its many facets. Yet I have to say that, for what I know, designers and organizers alike have been extremely careful not to infringe IP rights, which is really worth to praise after seeing many incidents caused by careless people. 

So I started doing just a little shopping here and another bit there, and next thing I knew… I owned a cauldron, a bucket of wizarding books, an owl and a witch hat (to start with!). And I realized I had neglected my magical education, cause I hadn’t been sorted into one of the four houses yet! So I headed to Pottermore and went through all the tests and came out as a proud Ravenclaw. I knew it! Now I’m ready to start reading all the books I bought before the next school year starts!

See you at Diagon Alley! Love and kisses ❤

It’s all about the candy!

Hi! How’ve you been? Well if you’ve been at Candy Fair, you’re probably craving sweets by now, just like I am! There are lots of cute pictures and it seems we’re all in a sugar rush, so I’m just going with the flow today! I didn’t forget I’m still one week behind on my color challenge though, so I tried to get the colors too (as you can see, blue was easier and I changed the “coffee” part for “caramel” sandals… I’m kicking myself for not getting a chocolate bar too!)

Most of my outfit is new or exclusive at the Fair, so if you want to get it you’ll have to TP over to its amazing venue. You can take a peek of it here, but it’s totally worth to see it in person. I have to say that I had very little lag running around once it was open, which surprised me a bit cause it was packed with people. Anyway, there are three sims to check and the place is pretty easy to navigate.

I got a preview pack for another exciting upcoming event, Posable Fair! This pretty poses are part of Embody’s release for it, along with other really cute girly ones. So save the date (and some lindens too!) for October 15th!

Finally, a special thank you and welcome for a new sponsor that is kindly supporting this blog now, Atooly. Miranda makes some of the cutest little accesories out there so I’m thrilled to be a part of the team!

Fall is coming

Not for me though! I’m so excited that we’re finally having some spring days, but you know, the grid has this northern hemisphere calendar and everything’s themed for fall… and I love fall colors, so I thought I may as well make a pumpkin post!

You know when you have all your outfit together like magic and then the pictures refuse to turn out nicely? That was me today, I swear I used up all of my patience trying to take decent pictures (and crashing, and restarting, and re rezzing, and everything all over). But the clothing part, that went smooth as a breeze! Fortunately, the pumpkin props from Embody that I used are attached and not for rezz, otherwise I would have had a much harder time on every restart!

If you are in the mood for a little hunt, TP to Atooly sim and pick your own robot friend today! My nail polish and bow ring are available for the hunt too, along with a few other accesories and cute things from Atooly sim stores. Almost everything else in my outfit is out now at different events, so if you like something don’t forget to check the credits to get your TPs!

Love and kisses ❤

Just a few hours to go!

Hi there! Today I stripped down to the basics to show off the real stars of the day- poses! I’ve been peeking at Pose Fair 2013 and there are TONS of wonderful, imaginative creations. There sure will be some amazing pictures taken because of the inspiration of these people!

I didn’t have enough time to wander through the sim as I intended to do, but I managed to grab some cool stuff in my couple of visits there. I have to say that creators have been really supportive, setting out their newest releases and encouraging bloggers to contact them! Cheers to nice pose creators!

What I enjoy more at these events is probably discovering new stores. I always come across a little -or not so little- brand I didn’t know about yet! PF13 was no exception and so I left with brand new landmarks in my inventory poses folder. I’m sure I’ll put them to good use in the near future! Here I show you just a small selection I made from some stores that really caught my eye, but I’ll be using lots of the new releases in future posts- so be sure to check as always on poses credits!

Love and kisses ❤
