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!

Lots of News and Struggles

 

Dust Bunny Woodland Dreams Penrose Treehouse

Hello everybody!

I hope you all had a great summer. Over all mine has been pretty good. Could have wished for more sunshine though, but isn’t there always something to complain about?

I have been away from both my blog and Flickr for months now and I am not sure if I am up to keeping up the weekly stuff or the monthly. I guess it is time to come clean about the fact that I suffer from depression and got hit hard this summer. Usually summer is a great time for me as I am usually symptom free, but not this year. Isn’t it lovely when life throws you another thing? Anyway, I have been working my way back into SL slowly. I have changed houses again, and am now contemplating going back to my Scarlet Creative Venice Palazzo.

I am getting ahead of myself, hehe. About a month ago I got the Dust Bunny Woodland Dreams tree house and remodeled my entire land around it, furnished it and then pretty much left it alone. I haven’t spent that much time in SL this summer. I have always loved tree houses in SL and I have mentioned that in a previous post. I am just obsessed with them!
I don’t know my reason for not feeling content in this one though, I suspect it is because when I redid my land and furnished this home I was at my absolute worst in my depression. I was desperate to find relief and I guess I thought getting new shineys would do the trick. Well they don’t always do.
But a new shiney thet will stick with me for a while is the new bento head I treated myself to. The LeLutka Simone. I told you all about my struggles in Contemplating a Face Lift and I finally bit the bullet right before LeLutka released their three new bento heads. Haha, I thought I had made the biggest mistake in not waiting for them, but so far I haven’t fallen in love with any of them yet. Give me time though;)

I won’t spend time actually blogging any of these new products of mine here though. At this point I don’t even know if I am gonna keep trying to do Deo(c)rate posts. I have been rather disappointed with the last few. To me they feel less creative now, but maybe that is just my depression speaking. I am subscribed to the September crate and I am hoping for a good one as it will be out two days before my birthday.
Anyway back to the point: I really just wanted to write a blogpost because I snapped my first picture in my tree house today as a start to finally deciding if I am keeping it for a while longer or changing houses yet again.
I visited the Scarlet Creative sim to take a look at the Venice Palazzo to see if I felt like changing back to it, and I really do. I miss the open rooms and kind of minimalistic decorating style it invited. But then I thought that I needed to put this house on the map a bit. Snap some pictures to prove to myself that I had it up and that I actually created something I really loved in furnishing and decorating it. I really do love how it makes me feel when I just plop my avi down and relax a bit. Something I have been trying to do lately. Just emptying my head of all the nasty stuff that have been living there the last few months.
Man, I am having such a hard time deciding to keep this or to set up my old house. It is such a big job and it feels like such a waste to take this down so quickly after I put it up.

Well, I think that is all I had to pour out today, maybe I’ll be back soon, maybe not. The only thing I know at this point is that I won’t quit this blog al together. I love it too much.

 

Just good old fashion ❤ from Nea

“We are going to that party, dear!”

Hello lovelies!

I visited Ultra today and they had anniversary gifts! I didn’t know as I have a lovely place under a rock, but anyway. I picked up the gifts of course and Come soon Poses had this lovely scene the inspired me on the spot! I love it when things do that!

I also treated myself to the fatpack of the Breeanya dress from Blueberry yesterday and what could be better than combining an amazing dress with a cool scene I though. So I went over to my favourite sandbox and rezzed myself a platform high up and got to work.
The scene didn’t come with a car to fix so I supplied my own, this adorable free Isetta from R-Production. This car has been my favourite for years as it is delightfully different, fully customizable via menu and when I got it it came with a fuel system and gasoline pump to refuel. Squee! How cool is that?

The inspiration for this picture is kinda like the TV show “Keeping up Appearances”. If you haven’t seen it, go check it out, it is hillarious 😀 In my picture the car has broken down as this lady and her better half are on their way to a party where she can mingle with the rich and famous and try climbing the social ladder. So eager to get there she busts out the tools to fix the car at any cost.

We are going to that party, dear

I decided to layer two of the Breeanya dresses, the completely transparet one over the opaque one. I have seen other women do this too and I think it makes for a really neat effect. Especially this rose gold colour. Its to die for!
I paired the dress with a new necklace from [Cynful] at Collabor88, some Garbaggio heels, a hair of my own creation and makeup form Alaskametro and L’etre.

Anyway that is just what hit me when I saw the scene and tried the pose. I really like how it turned out.

Return to Blogging!

(And hopefully vlogging soon!)

Hello, you lovely people!

First of all I would like to explain the reason I haven’t posted anything for almost two weeks. My hubby and I have been in the process of getting a puppy these past weeks, and on Friday May 12th we adopted a gorgeous little chihuahua girl. She has been needing a lot of attention and supervising and when the time comes that she falls asleep I am pooped too, haha. We are both running on 3-5 hours of sleep these days, but so worth it though ❤
But anyway here is , in true spirit of Nea’s Little Corner, news far too late and just in time for nobody to care:

I got into Fameshed about a day after the previous post I made and I got the Apple Fall Mercantile Bookshelf Set. I absolutely love it! The doors open and close on touch and you get a HUD with some texture options for the interior of the bookshelves. There is a version without the doors as well so the choice is yours. I loved the look with doors, obviously.

Return to blogging

The shelves come empty, but I took the books from my old LAQ books helves and placed them in the new ones along with some knick knack. I love how I can personalize the look of my new book shelves.
There also is a wonderful setup system that easily let’s you place the units flush with one another. Amazing detail and so easy to use!

In other way too late news I filmed the Deco(c)rate unboxing I spoke about. I’ll have to voice it though as the mic was off, so there was no voice recording. Derp! But once I get to do that I’ll try to get it uploaded as soon as possible. I have realized that I don’t have the time for vlogging at the moment. Our new puppy is deserving my time more so I’ll let you know when I am back at my Little corner of YouTube 🙂 ❤

On that note I’ll leave you guys and collapse in a chair

Exhausted but happy ❤ from Nea

Fighting for new shineys!

Today is just a quick update, as I am currently desperatly trying to get into Fameshed. RL stuff happened that prevented me from getting the shineys I wanted when I was lucky enough to have early access.

I picked up some neat freebies though, so I did not leave enpty handed, but what I really want is still in there, waiting for me to come and rescue it from the lag soup!

I also wante to mention that I am a bit overwhelmed about the response I have gotten on my stuttering videos. Thank you all so much! I do work on the requested video about how I do my pictures. Thanks so much for the request :-* !

 

I’ll leave you all for now while I contunue to try to get into the event. I’ll let you know when I do;) Completely stripped down ❤ from Nea.

Proud of myself!

Proud of myself!

Hello!
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.

Vlogger Challenge

Vlogger challenge portrait

So this morning I woke up, poured myself a lovely cup of french press coffee, opened YouTube, and ended up installing OBS for Strawberry Singh’s vlogger challenge. I had my breakfast in between of course.

I am not brave enough yet to talk in my videos, for me it is quite a big step to actually be putting one video up on YouTube in the first place. I am sure several of you can relate and that at least a few of you are in the same position I am in right now. Scared to death to hit that button that makes the video go public *screams*

The Video!

A video I made shortly after the first one that introduces me a bit better;)

Since this is my first video I would do something simple and as I am not talking to introduce myself I figured I could wear one of my own creations to show one part of my Second Life I have not put out there that much in this Blog/Vlog.

The dress I am wearing is the Sakura Sakura dress I made ages ago. It is not my favourite anymore, but it is my most spring like creation. I am wearing it here with the *lovely* prim flowers attachment, but it would probably work best without. Don’t wear physics with this at least;P

Vlogger challenge

I have been wanting to make a video to add to the listing of this dress on MP, so people can see how it looks in motion so thank you so much Strawberry, for the kick in the butt!

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.

Hands Off! SLink vs. Maitreya

Hands Off!

 

When I first got the AvEnhnace Dynamic update I was first thrilled that my elegant SLink hands finally would be back on my wrists in bento form, but the reality turned out quite differently. As I attached the hands I saw that gone were the elegant shape and the slender fingers. In their place was something that was everything but elegant. The fingers look too long and disproportionate and the hand seem to lack knuckles!? To put it in short: I felt my heart sink. I had looked forward to this since bento went live. I actually thought those first glimpses of a bento hand way back was from Slink, until I learned that it was from Vista.
Anyway, I decided after the initial shock, that I would wear my new Dynamic Hands for a few days to see if they grew on me. Also, Alicia Chenaux was sporting them on her You Tube channel and if they were good enough for her why weren’t they for me? (At least I think they were the Dynamic AvEnhance hands! Please correct me if I am wrong!)
Well, they are nice no doubt, the things I have mentioned are things I don’t like about them, but they work and they move, just not as good as others. They don’t look natural to me, and I am hoping for an update to fix these issues!

I lasted about a day and a half with the Dynamics before I went back to Vista, my all time favourites. Then I dared to look in Maitreya’s direction, hoping for a miracle from them. And today I got my answer, and it came from above with angles singing and a saintly glow with the V4.0 update, Mesh Body Addicts got more about it.
I never was a fan of the original Maitreya hands. I tried to wear them when I switched bodies from Physique to Lara, but I didn’t last long, a week at most. The bento version on the other hand, (ha ha, see what I did there!) Is awesome! The Maitreya hands have the defined, slender shape of the Vista Pro Hands and the option for the to-die-for almond shaped nails of the TuTy Bento Hands System. They move very naturally and they might be my new go to hands. I am not sure yet, but I’ll wear them for a few days to see how they feel.

Slink vs Maitreya

I used Vista’s animations to show how the Slink and Maitreya hands behave. The hands marked “S” is obviously SLink and those with “M” are Maitreya. As you see the SLink hands doesn’t look bad at all, just not my cup of tea.

I was gifted the TuTy Bento Hnads System before I could save up or decide to buy them for my self. Check out this link to my post: Vista vs Tuty’s bento mesh hands to learn more abut them. As with the other hands I wore them around for a few days, but they ultimately turned out to slim for my taste. They might be a better fit for an avatar with a more petite and less curvy shape than me. They move very well however and I am so, so grateful that I now own them! I contemplated wearing them for the sake of the almond nail shape alone, hehe. I love it. Thank you!

So which pair of hands are your favourite so far? Any new ones I haven’t heard of yet? Please share.
