If I'm not shopping I'm listening to music somewhere, and if I'm offline I'm either reading or watching a movie (probably horror)... sleep, cleaning, and other boring shit may be in there somewhere too!

C.C. Kre-ations @ Oneword

Well, I took a little timeout to get some rl shit sorted and to work on my photo issues in Firestorm, but I’m back I think.  I still have photo issues though.  I’ve tried updating graphics card drivers, re-installing Firestorm, and changing photo size, but nothing has worked.  Every time I turn on “advanced lighting model” for photos it looks fine inworld with little to no lag, but when I open the photo outside of SL all I get is a black screen where my pic should be.  If anyone has advice on fixing this I’d love to hear it.

Merry Christmas!

Since I won’t be around much later today, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone has a wonderful day full of family madness, full tummies, and love.  (That’s about as sappy as I get, don’t tell anyone.)

This is round two of photos taken on my new computer, I’m much happier with these than the last post.  I figured out shadows, for the most part, and played around with the “depth of field” settings.  For future reference you should probably play with those settings on a sim that doesn’t have falling snow.  I thought I was going blind I tell ya!  Every snowflake stole focus which in turn made my screen go all blurry.

Anyway, in this post I have new items only available at FROST and Level Up, both of which end soon, so enjoy your Christmas then come back to shop!

Last Chance for Winter Trends

Winter Trend ends today at 4pm SLT, so it’s your last chance to get your winter wardrobe started off right!  There are two sims, full of snow for you to see (made me cold just looking at it), North Pole and South Pole.  I wanted to have this post done days ago, even had the photos done but then I FINALLY got a new computer!  I don’t change files over since I don’t really have anything that important on my computer like work files for rl or SL.  I am not the person you want helping you move either, I’ll throw half your shit out as junk and clutter.  Anyway, I had to redo the photos which I’m still not happy with.  I basically have to unlearn all my bad habits and tricks now that I’m not stuck on all the lowest settings.

Let the Madness Begin!

Every country has holidays throughout the year, some get us out of work and others make us remember for better or worse.  Here in the U.S. our big holiday season of the year starts today with Thanksgiving, lots of cooking and family gathering, but that’s only the first act.  Tomorrow will be full of Black Friday sales which consist of waking up at an ungodly hour, somehow driving to whichever store half asleep without killing yourself or others, and then trying to run through the store all rat maze like elbowing and gouging yourself to the best deals.  After that comes Cyber Monday which is a lot safer physically since all the deals are online.  And then there’s finally the main event, Thanksgiving was the dry run, all that shopping done for just this one day, Christmas!

I’m just soooooooo not ready for winter, it’s too soon isn’t it?  The temperatures have already taken a plunge here and we even got our first dusting of snow (the weatherman is threatening me with more).  Can’t I just hibernate like a bear and see you guys back here around the end of April?  Until I can figure out a way to make that happen I guess I’ll just show this warm looking stuff from The Thrift Shop and gacha skins from ANGELICA only available at Xiasumi.

Circus Circus

I may have went a little overboard with the amount of items from Cirque de Seraphim in this post.  SL has been REALLY laggy for me lately so every day I put off taking photos was one more day to open boxes and put more stuff on, and yes, you can tell how long I’ve been wearing an outfit by how many accessories and makeup layers I’ve managed to slap on.  😛

Finding Whimsy

I am of the firm belief that everyone needs a little whimsy in their life at some point, sometimes it just happens when it’s most needed, but other times we have to go looking and digging because that’s just how jaded we’ve become.  Whimsy is one of the reasons I wanted to blog for Cirque de Seraphim, I mean if you can’t enjoy the circus what kind of person are you?  The second reason is that a lot of this money will be going to the ASPCA and if you’re looking for some good karma what better way than helping poor lil’ defenseless animals?  So, on the 6th grab those lindens, prepare for lag, and head on over to the greatest show on SL!

The Fool in the Field

I was going to title this “The Fool on the Hill” after The Beatles song, but as you can see, the hill is behind me.  😛  Quite a few things have just opened or will be opening soon, so lots of stuff to show you!  ANGELICA is kicking off the month by being in Sad November (opened yesterday) and the Xiasumi School Festival (opens Nov. 3rd).  Also, another round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival opens on the 4th which is where you can find this awesome hair from Olive.

Lastly but never least I am lucky enough to be a blogger for Cirque de Seraphim which opens Nov. 6th to benefit the ASPCA and with the theme being everything circus it promises to be a blast!  All I have in this post from the event are poses from Verocity, but you can look forward to more coverage all month long.
