All good things must come to an end.- ♥

     You probably noticed that I’ve been away for the last few weeks… or maybe not, but I like to think that I’ve been missed! Anyway, as the saying goes, all good things come to an end and after much thought I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time to move forward and close this space for good.
These last months have been hectic for me. I’ve had the pleasure to participate with my store in countless events and I’ve seen my little business grow from day to day. I’ve started working at Seraphim, the premier Second Life sales and events blog, and as you can imagine this is also a very time consuming work. I wouldn’t change it for anything though, because I enjoy every minute spent with the amazing team of bloggers that make Seraphim happen. I won’t go into RL details but I’ve certainly been busy as a bee… so to cut a long story short, I started to feel that I had to do something to simplify my blogging style enough to be able to keep posting. Believe it or not, every entry takes a lot of time in the making!
So I came up with a new, more balanced layout that I hope will still be pretty AND useful for my readers. I decided to move to a new blog to make a clean cut and I hope you’ll join me there too! I’ve enjoyed learning the ropes of blogging and I’m thankful for all the people who walked along this path with me (yes, that means you!)
See you there? Love, Connie ♥

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 ❤

A girl after her own heart ♥

Hi there! Today I have some event goodies to show you! This round of Collabor88 is awesome and one of my favorites is definitely this long ponytail from .Olive., go try a demo cause I’m sure you’ll love it too! I picked the rest of my outfit at The Boutique, including the dress from Coquet, heels from ieQED and necklace from Cae. Isn’t it great to do all your shopping in one place? The Garden and The Poser Pavilion are right next door, so I could have bought these poses there too if they weren’t actually sold by yours truly (cof cof blatant self promotion)

As for my skin, all I have to say is that I’ve discovered Laura Hurley at the Skin Fair and I am in love. LOVE, I tell you. I’ll probably need to wear Ivy for a couple more posts, so if you were expecting variety I’m sorry, I’m staying faithful to her (at least till the honeymoon ends!). Go pick some demos – or fatpacks!- at Skin Fair today!

Grocery shopping

Hi loves! After I finished dressing up I decided I was too cute to stay at home (empty skybox cof cof) so I grabbed my tote and went shopping for some fresh goodies.

And fresh goodies are  what I’m wearing too! Isn’t my headband the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I love giraffes in RL so I literally squeed when I got this rare from .Olive.! Of course, it’s all about Arcade these days, so make sure you hit the machine or at least some yardsales to get your Flutter hair and maybe a headband or two!

My dress and bag are from brand new rounds of The Fashion Collective and The Chapter Four, so if you haven’t been there yet you still have plenty of time to check them out! I better run now before the milk goes off. See you!

Tragic

Hi people! Weekend is finally here and for me, that means more free time to take pictures and blog! Today I want to show you some wonderful items that you’ll find scattered around in different events.

I made my first stop at Collabor and picked up a pair of destroyed jeans from u.f.o & B.C.C. When I paired them up with my fri. Jet heels I instantly knew what kind of pictures I would take! So I grabbed this awesome necklace from ISON and I was ready for my next stop, The Dressing Room Fusion, where I picked a pack of MINA hair. With my raw vest, Essences Harley FLF skin and some group gift jewelry from Maxi Gossamer I was ready to go!

On another topic, I’m giving you a sneak peek of the poses that will be available from .mien. for the very first round of Oneword! You can read more about this brand new, bi monthly event here. The word picked for this round is Tragedy and I’m sure we will see a lot of original creations around it! Stay tunned for more news!

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!
