Waiting for Spring

Standard

COLLABOR88 is up again this month 🙂 and like always filled with goodies and yay everyone is getting ready for spring, except the weather. Here it rains and when it rains it pours making me and the cat twitchy and anxious for the sun, in the meanwhile in SL my sim slowly blooms while i delete snowy pines and add the random new trees to the landscaping and dot the ground with flowers.

Now would someone tell me to stop taking pics and actually do more landscaping?

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.

A Blog about Blogging :O

Standard

I´m pretty new at blogging, so I thought I should do at least one post on how the blog works, affiliations or lack of them, that sort of stuff.

Well I blog whatever I can and have available time for basically, I try to give time to special events in SL, like I have these past few months with, Back to Black, Festival of Sin, EPOCH Legend, Mix+Mesh, March Mesh Madness, and also the regular monthly or weekly events like, COLLABOR88 Flux, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue, Lazy Sundays and a few more others.

I also try on top of that to add a few hunts to the list, like I did with Gothmas by Gaslight Hunt, and soon The Twisted and Steam Hunts, as soon has I have the available time. This of course is not easy there are always so many events I can cover and there is also so many available lindens to spend, and that brings us to my next point.

99% of the items I review, use on photographs come out of my pocket, meaning I rush to the events (usually on Sundays mornings, when most US folks are still asleep) and spend my lindens on things I really like or would look good in pictures, so I can end up with a few things in my inventory that won´t be blogged right away, but will sit there waiting for the right opportunity to come out in the future.

I do get a few Blogger packs, I don´t aproach merchants and ask for things I will volunteer when they offer or ask about blogger on Plurk if I like the shop and feel I can actually blog their things and fit them into my posts, one of the few shops that sends me blogger review packs and is amazingly generous with those is CoLLisions, I will not claim to mark all blogger preview items, I would rather focus on the events they are a part of, but I am very upfront about it and will address them at least every now and them here, I will also never ever blog something I don´t like, or that does not fit in with the overall look.

Now another point here Gifts, I get some gifts from creators sometimes, from those I know well, most of them I met in SLUniverse where I am a frequent poster, usually I saw them progress their work and tested demos for them helping if needed with fitting tips, but mostly they are for me talented friends, and I will not mark their items as gifts I would never ever also never blog anything I would not like myself or didn´t fit the style again, i´m just very lucky to know these people, and share their creations.

Regular shops I post about, you will find quite a few, my elikatira and Mynerva addiction is legendary how much I have fun with M.O.C.K. Cosmetics is also apparent (and I´m lucky to know Mockie and see the dinamic in her group which is one of the few payed ones I do belong too), .( bewildebeest ) and PixelDolls both now closet, and {bilo} reopening soon, but I also love to try new things, always inside my own comfort zones.

Now another issue is comfort zones, well about that, I don´t really do sexy or underwear pics, I´m a silly prude about that for some reason, I do try to step out of it tho, but never anything that would make me uncomfortable.

At the end of the day I´m just having a lot of fun taking pics and running around teh grid experimenting new things, and trying not to take myself too seriously, hopefully I learn something while doing it, I´m sure i will make mistakes and screw up sometimes, let´s just hope it doesn´t happen that often.

As for style well check my blog I love experimenting 😀 and mostly having fun.
