New Hair all over!

Autumn aftenoons in the garden

Hello Corner Creatures!

Today I have another update on the revamping of my hubby’s avatar Falaacus. As you guys may remember from my last post I was not completely happy with the beard that I got him due to the fact that I didn’t demo it properly. Well, I decided to go hunt for another one, and my search lead me to Doux. It has been one of my favourite hair stores for over a year now so I can’t for the life of me figure out why I didn’t check them out first, but hey that’s life right?
Anyway I found a nice full beard at their store and to top it of, a hair too, Yaay! This beard is ot bento, but it looks just smashing and so realistic I think.

A red beard I knew was a given, but I let my hubby decide the hair colour and style of the hair. We landed on this dashing Gentleman hair in the red colour pack and it suits him very well I think. I tried to find a matching hairbase, but the nicest ones was unfortunately only for Catwa heads, so I stuck with the crew cut that came with the LeLutka head for now.

As for the outfit, I took him shopping at the Mens Only Monthly event. I picked him up this amazing A&D Clothing -Blazer ~Wesley~ in Coffee I couldn’t afford the fat pack at the time, but if you can go for it! The colours of the jackets are lovely and it has loads of extra colour options for the shirt inside. I might have to go back and get it another time. The single version come with shirt colours in white grey and black, so there should be sometihng to cover the basic needs. Also the metal of the buttons can be changed. To top this of the jacket has three settings for materials as well. None, light and heavy. Very nifty!

Revamping a Classic SL Avatar Part 2

Revamping classic avatar part two


Hello corner creatures ❤

Today I had some extra time to sit down and do a proper blog post. Yaay!
I have been working on updating my RL hubby’s SL avatar (with his blessing) this last month and so far I am pretty happy with the results. He is now mesh from head to toe and I must say the shopping experience so far has been very enjoyable!

Well, first things first. Better start at the beginning. So I started by picking up a deno of the new male bento head from LeLutka along with the ones from Catwa and played around with them some. My hubby and I had a good time laughing over how the heads looked once I put them on over his classic shape. Hilarious, haha!
In the end I think we both felt better about the LeLutka Andrea as I had to do only minor changes to make it work with his existing shape. Also, I have been in love with the new LeLutka Moods.
Another thing that sold me on the Andrea head was the very nice skin that came with it and the convenient HUD. Yes, I was an avid Catwa head wearer for a long time, but the LeLutka HUD system is just so very sleek and easy! And the beards for the men in this HUD are awesome! Just awesome!
I promise I am not sponsored by LeLutka. Man, how many times can I say LeLutka in one post, haha!

Anyway, moving on: For his mesh body I demoed the male Slink Physique and Belleza’s Jake. Those were the two I felt would work best for him thinking about shape and wardrobe. I demoed the Male Pysique when it was released so I had an idea of how that one worked and looked, but Belleza blew me away with the detailing on their male body. Much like the Maitreya Lara it got those extra details that looks A-MA-ZING with materials turned on! So even though I thought the Male Physique would be a better choice wardrobe wise I went with the Jake body. My hubby agreed, so I am not the only one liking this body, hehe. I also really love that Jake is not super muscular. I haven’t really played around with extreme sliders, but if you would want a normal looking fit body this is the one to go for.

The price as of the date I bought the Belleza Jake mesh body was 2999L$. It comes complete with skins with and without body hair, bento hands, feet and loads of alpha cuts. It also came with a free outfit. Not my hubby’s style, but it is very nice of the creator to include something for you to go shopping in:)
To my knowledge this body is still in Beta meaning the price might go up at a later date, so if you are in the market for a new male mesh body I would suggest at least go pick up a demo of this one.
Only issues I have noticed so far is that the skin texture on the Clef de Peau.Body Tight T1 [JAKE] Applier I got to match the skin that came with the LeLutka Andrea head stretches a bit on the fingers and the neck seam is not seamless. The neck blender on the body helps, but that solution will never be optimal. But hey, it’s in beta still so those issues most likely will get fixed:)

So there we have the essentials out of the way, now for the trimmings:) I got some shoes for him at Shoetopia where I found two pairs to choose from and I got him the A&D Clothing – Shoes -Firenze- Coffee. I think they are a very classic pair and the textures are really awesome. A very good choice if you want something that goes with a more gentlemanly wardrobe;)


For clothing so far I haven’t found that many stores yet, so I still need those suggestions:P But I have been shopping at GAS and have gotten the Tommy jeans and the Adam shirt. A neat thing about the shirt is that it comes in both tucked and un-tucked versions. Very good for changing up the look! Both clothing items also comes with colour changing HUDs. I am not too keen on all of the the shirt colours, but maybe I just need more to layer and mix it up with. The jeans I really like though, nice colour options for the pants and the belt! Very easy to dress up or down.

And now for the pièce de résistance: My hubby has always sported a beard in SL and of course I had to find him a new one instead of that dreadful thing I made him several years ago. *shudders* Anyone else hate looking at old things they made a long time ago?
Anyway, I went looking for a bento beard and there are actually some options out there. Not many for Andrea yet, sadly. But I went with one from Dubious Intent, a store I have never heard of. I liked the beard, but found that the textures didn’t really match my needs, so I tried my hand at some texturing again, as I have done with several of my own hairs over the years, and am happy with the results for now. The colours that comes with the beard originally are very nice, just darker than I had hoped, my bad for not demoing properly.
If there is one wish I have for male avatars out there it is more facial hair! Preferably bento of course, hehe. But first clothes of course, gotta look presentable. Then again… Nope, stopit Nea. This post is long an messy enough as it is, haha!


Phew! I think that covers it all. Although very crudely, I am really not good at blogging clothes and avatar components, and especially not as many as this in one go. I probably should have made several, but I really wanted to put all the essentials in one post.

Anyway, upgraded ❤ from Nea

Changing Socks err Houses again

Changing Socks err Houses Again

So as the title says I changed my home again. Haha. I honestly thought I was done with that stuff, but oh, no:) I moved back into my beloved Scarlet Creative Venice Palazzo and I feel pretty good about it, I think I needed this.
I decorated it a bit differently from last time too. For the most the rooms serve the same purpose as last time with a few changes. I added a Man Corner. A little nook in the house that is the domain of my hubby. I am wanting to get a proper audio rack with all the trimmings for it, but haven’t found a nice one yet. I like to put parts of our RL into my SL, especially in home decorating since we live on 398 square feet in RL.
Another new addition is a guest bedroom where I previously had a walk in closet. I am really happy about how it turned out too. I feel like houses feel more inviting if there is a room for guests to stay in. I also got to use more of my favourite furniture in there. Yaaay!
True to my style almost all of my furniture has been out non stop since I moved here. I rarely change them up once I’ve found some pieces I love. Although I had to remove everything from my land before setting up this home. I had that dreaded illusive, invisible obstacle. You know the one you can’t highlight and can’t see even if you make alphas visible. I finally found out what is likely causing it though (with the help of my landlady Imagin Illyar). Unlinking mesh structures! Yes, you heard it. Don’t mod your mesh house! Just kidding:) But be ware of this very unfunny thing that can happen.
Sadly the only thing that solves it is to remove everything on your land until you find out what causes it.
So 1250 items later my land was free and I could start setting up my new home. I modded the Venice Palazzo only slightly this time to avoid this mess again just tweaked what is in my opinion must haves. Larger balcony upstairs so I can fit my hanging chair from Bazar and a bigger deck in the back that is now delightfully free floating.

Remember in the last post I mentioned that I didn’t love any of LeLutkas new mesh heads? I lied, I now own Bianca as well. I am hopeless! I rarely love new stuff until it’s been out for a awhile.
And for the first time in my SL I find myself switching between two different mesh heads, Bianca and Simone. At this time I love them both.

Please excuse my rambling, my mind is very erratic these days.

I am feeling a bit better from my depression lately, but I still feel so alone. Do any of you guys struggle with this or anything at all? I’d love to hear about it and maybe we can support each other through it? I am not after a pity party, just to clear that up, I really can’t stand them! But it would be nice to know that I am not alone.

A bit happier ❤ from Nea!

I am offering coffee again today, but it is not here on my blog, it is over at my second video on YouTube,  and I am speaking in it! Wohoo! It may not seem like a big deal to some, but I have social anxiety and it took a lot to actually do this. I have been wanting for over a year, just so you know! But in the end I decided to quote my dear hubby: “F**c it I’m good!” and uploaded it.
By the way I forgot to offer you guys coffee in my video, so please just pretend that I did;)
I used Lightworks for the first time today too. I am not very good at it yet, but I managed to cut out my nervous throat clearing tics and it sounded pretty good afterwards. I am hoping to get better as I hopefully continue doing this.

Why are you guys still here? Run on over to My Little Corner of YouTube before your coffee gets cold! But please do come back here sometime, I think this is probably where most of the action is gonna be. “For now” she said with a grin.

Excited ❤ from Nea

Credits are in my video today, not sure if I like doing it that way, but I thought I should give it a go.

I am in the Garden!

I am in the Garden

Or the greenhouse rather. I have finally gotten around to getting some new plants for my home. I have thought about this since 2013 when I got the ones I previously used. While they were very (read: amazingly) well done in mesh and cost about 10 L$ each they no longer fit my style of decor, so on I went to hunt for greenery.
I didn’t have to look long on Marketplace to find something that caught my interest, A few sets of plants at Soy.. While having some experience with this store I hadn’t visited them inworld, but I am very glad that I now have. They make some amazing stuff and they have a ton of neat group gifts too! Needless to say I am now a proud group member, for free no less! And my house is several items richer in detail. Yaay!

Some SL pampering
Vanity set from Soy. at a previous round of Collabor88. Love it!

I love my new plants and have them in the greenhouse and all rooms of my home in various sizes and quantity. The plats in the set comes in two sizes, small and large. The larger about double the land impact of the small ones. But that is only 6LI at most, so no biggie:)
In the picture you can see two plants from the Soy. Potted Plants Set behind me and the Soy. Super long Hanging Hedera plant to the far right.

I am in the Garden lighter

I am again sporting my TETRA Miaa dress in red this time and a brand new hair from Doux. I really love this style of swept-over-the-shoulder hair that they do, and the lovely Strawberry blond shade that so few stores carry:( Another lovely addition to several of Doux’s newer hairs is the separate baby hairs. These add a lot of character to the hair as well as solving the hairbase alpha glitch that I hate with a passion. So much so that I reached a point with my first hair from this store where I completely stopped wearing it because of the alpha glitch. I know, silly!
Anyway, I like that baby hairs is making it big now, being a proud owner of the dreaded things in RL, hehe.

This is about it for today though, so please have a wonderful weekend in RL and SL.

Finally I got the time to put up a proper scene with Aprils Deco(c)rate! And I had so much fun with it even though it took me all day to set up, photograph, edit and write this thing. Thank you RL!) There was a lot of great items in this months box and sadly not all fit in this picture I started making. But I crammed a lot of my favourites in anyway. The other ones might appear in later posts throughout the month.

The ones that made it into this picture are my absolute favourites! The chess set by Ex Machina and the tree I am sitting under by Chez Moi is by far my top two. Oh, and the stuff from Mad Pea this round was amazing too. I love the “Wrong way” sign, hehe. So neat!

A lot has happened this week and this has forced me to put my blogging a bit on the back burner, but I have gotten around to some fun things: I managed to catch the Live Social Media Discussion with Strawberry Singh on April 11.
It was so much fun to sit in and to learn about how to use social media to establish a blog or vlog. I learned quite a few new things and I will put those in action, starting after the weekend. Thanks again Strawberry!

To round off this scattered-all-around-the-place post I would like to draw attention to this older post of mine and say that I finally won the rare Scarlet Creative Cordelia Chateau at The Arcade! Woohoo! And thanks to the lovely Charlotte Bartlett I got it exchanged for a mod cop version as well. Yay! I have had so much fun putting it up and furnishing it 😀 Not done by far but enough will be done for next weeks posts 😉
I mentioned back then I was not sure if I was gonna live in this Cordelia Chateau or just decorate it for pictures, but I am pretty sure I am staying. The frequent changing of houses the last few months makes me nervous that I am returning to old sins, haha. Let’s hope not! Really! Anyway, can’t wait to show you around my new home after the weekend, I am off fro Easter holiday at my parents cabin for a few glorious days of food, candy, more food, and maybe a movie or two. Wishing you all a happy Easter or weekend.

That Feeling…

That feeling 3

…when you crash and all your hard work just slips through your fingers…

Happy weekend guys I think I have written and scrapped about five attempts by now and doing pictures for them has not even happened.
This noon I had a great idea of redoing one of my earlier portraits – “Sunset Bath”. I custom made the pose based on the one I used in that other picture, created a custom windlight, moved the tub with me in it around about a gazillion times, finally landed on a composition, clicked the photography button and – crashed!

Then I took a lunch break. A long one.

That feeling 4

The feeling is not possible to describe and I bet most of you probably have been there. And I know, I should have saved the windlight and the pose, but I was fine tuning the pose until the last minute and forgot. So technically this mess is my fault. Hehe, always fun to admit ones own short comings.
Anyway, after my lunch I didn’t feel like recreating the picture. It was not even an original idea anyway, so maybe this whole misfortune was for the best even.

The main reason I really wanted to make this post is because I once again decided to throw some lindens at Catwa. This time I got Lona in return for my airborne money. And is she pretty! She channels what I want me to be in SL – killer bone structure yet cute as a button. Earlier I just wanted to be killer, but somehow few people ever saw me as anything but cute, haha. That is the compliment that has reigned supreme in my SL. No matter how tough, elegant or classy I thought looked I never managed to channel it into anything but cuteness, so now I am embracing it. Hold on to your insulin guys!

(By the way a sincere thank you to everyone out there who has ever called me cute. I don’t expect you to remember me and I don’t remember half of you, but thank you anyway

That feeling 2
But back to my killer cuteness or cuteness killer (haha, let’s stop there shall we) and why I ended up with Lona of all heads. I did not think I would like her from her pictures or the videos I saw of people reviewing her. She looked way to cutsey even for me and generally not my style. But one thing I have learned over the years is that never go by this first impression. It might be right over 75% of the time but what about those final 25%? Well, Lona is one of those for me. When I tried her on my shape, dressed her in my preferred skin and started tweaking the sliders to optimize her look I found she responded really well to it. It didn’t take me long before she had completely morphed into Nea and I could not wait for my paycheck to arrive so I could justify making her mine! And just before the weekend took off she came home with me. So that is what has had me wanting to blog the whole weekend. I just needed some inspiration for a post that was a little bit better then passable. And here it finally is just as the glorious weekend ends.

As the title says!
I have been away for a week on a “second honeymoon” with my hubby. We traveled 7 hours by train to our country’s capital and had a blast! We went to see a show with Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox complete in 1920’s gettup and I have been shopping waay to much, haha. And the shopping didn’t stop when I got home! I had a mini spree at ISON both at the C88 and their main store. Mini spree for me is two or more items at one store hehe, my budget rarely allow for more. But when I saw this snug cardigan at C88 I had to go get it. I wanted to get the silk slip too, but decided against it as I thought the fabric looked to heavy for my liking. I am very particular about my silk.

But enough about that, I also got home to find the Doco(c)rate waiting for me. I unboxed it under an hour after we got home and my brain cold hardly process the items I got. I felt like everything was useless to me and not to my liking at all. I felt so sad and considered not subscribing to the next box, but then I realized I was just beyond tired and decided to put it all aside for later and relax a bit. So I patiently sat down and watched some youtube videos of other people unboxing the crate.
Yesterday I could finally make sense of the items I got and appreciate them, and putting them together was a breeze.
Remember in one of my previous posts I made a greenhouse to go in my garden because I couldn’t find any that I liked on MP? Well [ keke ] heard my plea and offered up this gorgeous greenhouse for this months Deco(c)rate and I love it! It is so pretty and after I shrunk it down a bit it was the perfect size for my garden. Oh, and it comes complete with bird droppings on one side of the roof haha. I adore that detail!
My three other favorite items was the little table in the set from Serenity Style and the Meditation set from *HEXtraordinary*. I really needed a new Buddha statue as my old one is from 2012 I believe. I still love that one, but fresh blood is always good.
The third item is not in this picture, but in my bedroom. It is the lovely .:revival:. boho bed. It is so lovely that the moment I saw it I switched out my old bed from February’s crate.
I really liked this months crate when my mind settled down from travel mode, haha. I have found a use from many of the items, but is it only me or was the LI of the items in this crate higher than usual? I thought many of the items were very high LI compared to mesh items I usually see. I don’t know. I still like them, and it is my fault for filling my land up with a huge house:P I just thought I should put the question out there in case more people had noticed.
Anyway, I think I am gonna go back to demoing the latest bento head from Catwa. She also heard my wish and worries in Contemplating a Face Lift.  Now this is starting to get scary! Two wishes granted in under a month?!?
When I saw the teasers for Lona I didn’t think I would like her on me, but now that I have tried her I am very much considering investing. I am still gonna demo Lona for a few more days like I did the LeLutka one (which I obviously didn’t end up getting, still ye ol’ Catya for me), but this is something different! How long do you guys demo big purchases like that?

Getting the Garden Together

Getting the garde together closeup

I got started on the garden, and this time it is going the right way! Yaay! After several fails I finally got on the right track and the garden is coming along nicely. I made myself this makeshift conservatory, or greenhouse, I am not sure what name one normally use. But anyway, it is made of some mesh walls I got ages ago from ZimberLab and some lovely textures from even longer back. As you all hopefully know by now I am a big fan of the old goldies. I am looking for a a more detailed conservatory in mesh to put up instead of this one, but so far I haven’t found one to my linking that is not a boatload of prims, so textures it is for now.
I really like how the conservatory turned out though. At first I tried with the old and/or broken glass in, but then I went nuts with the alpha masking and boom – there we go. A naked greenhouse with all it’s rusty bits hanging out. It actually feels more cozy like this, god knows why, haha.
To road test it I threw together this quick scene inside and snapped a few shots. I used mostly Deco(c)rate items and my trusted old fern specimens from Apple Fall, and a new addition to my AF collection. More about that later;)

Getting the garden together

The Twisted Tree from Skye is another new addition to my garden. Have had my eyes on it for a while, but I think twice before splurging on a tree of this L$ magnitude. It is worth it though and it changes with the season on touch, which is great! And it adds a wonderful touch of character to my little land.

Now to the news from Apple Fall. It is their contribution to Mad Peas Feed a Smile International Food Fair. I don’t go to events often as my budget rarely allows for it, but if my eyes stick to a particular item being sold only on that fair my interest is peaked. And this is what happened when I saw AF’s notecard about their item. I love macarons in the real world, I love making them and eating them so it only makes sense to get some in Second Life as well. And this Macaron Decor set is so beautifully made. You get both items, the box and the sketchbook and they are 1 LI each which is amazing for people like me who love to overstuff their land with all sorts of knick knack. The textures are great as always and I love the small leaves scattered over and around the box.

Some days I Just feel the need to escape to a serene place. A place where no problems can enter and no worries appear.


I don’t like cherubs really. I have been gifted many over the years by unknowing relatives and well meaning aunts, but I never liked them. I tried. Very hard, but nope!

Then I got this antique cherub lamp from HEXtraordianry in this months Deco(c)rate) and my first thought was ‘great! I hate those things.’ But I told myself to put it out and see if I could make it work. It is very well made after all, and I do like lamps. I have a major thing for lamps really. So I put the lamp in my hallway, positioned my camera and was hit with a sensation of peace and tranquility. Nothing in view outside but dry grass, some branches and miles of ocean an sky. I really feel like the lamp on the Scarlet Creative console makes this snapshot. I don’t know how or why but it just works, at least it does for me right now and that is nice.

Have a great weekend guys ❤
