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!

Shiny Shabby will open soon and this Adele dress by Lybra is one of my favourite items from this round. It has a simple neckline on the front, and a plunging back decolleté so while it looks pretty modest, do not underestimate the appeal of this maxi dress.
I decided to wear it with the Victoria lace collar from The Mystic for an extra dramatic effect

Running Errands

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 … Read more →

Taking a walk

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 … Read more →

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 … Read more →

La princesse et la digue

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.

Window Shopping

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 … Read more →
