..Idle Summer Day..

 

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. – Regina Brett

To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom. – Patti Smith

The Joy of Gardening – Designer Showcase: Apple Fall

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. A garden is a grand teacher. – Unknown

 

Currently Apple Fall is having an amazing sale inworld; where items are marked to 25, 50 or 75L only. Please note that giftcards are not included for the sale; those are still full price. Also the sale is only inworld and not on Marketplace.  The sale started on Monday July 17, 2017  and will be going until Friday July 21, 2017. There are so many amazing deals at the sale; that everyone should take a moment and check out. I’ve also personally found 15 items in the mainstore that were marked down to 0L. Free everyone!, of those items; a few were plants and one was the Apple Fall – New York Studio Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a menu where you can change the texture of the walls & floor to 4 different themes, reflecting New York. It’s an amazing steal; and there are many more free items hidden around.

 

Today I bring you a tutorial of how to create your own personal planters using items that I’ve gotten at the Apple Fall Sale. Below you’ll find my video tutorial/vlog on how to unlink items and relink with other items to create your own planter. The possibilities are endless of what you can create with items that are modifiable and can be unlinked.

I hope that you enjoyed the tutorial/vlog and that I helped to show what is possible once you know what to do.

Inner ‘Mad’ Queen

“I have sinned and must atone, must parade my shame before the eyes of every beggar in the city. They think that this will break my pride, that it will make an end to me, but they are wrong.” – Cersei’s thoughts before her walk of atonement – A Dance with Dragons

“When you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” – Cersei Lannister

 

With Game of Thrones 7’th season premiere fast approaching on July 16’th, 2017; I thought that it was time to embrace my ‘Inner Mad Queen’ a bit for a photo. Many people know that I am a dire hard Game of Thrones fan and have been waiting for the new season. I will hopefully be doing a Game of Thrones themed vlog within the next 3 -4 days; showing off all of the different Game of Thrones themed items that I own; one of which you see in this picture by Alchemy that they created for The Secret Affair‘s April round back in 2015 which was Thrones themed. It’s something that I that I love so I figured why not blog it.

..Peaceful Summer..

 

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. – John Lubbock

Today I am showing off a few items that I got from Fifty Linden Fridays. I also did a ‘Get Ready With Me’ Vlog; which is embedded below for you to watch. Sadly the beginning and the part when I am editing the picture both became corrupted. (Technology hated me today!) I promise to try another ‘Get Ready With Me’, that includes the editing of the picture.

Vlog Of The Week Challenge: Grunge

 

I’ve been a bit under the weather lately as well as uninspired, which might be hard to believe given all of the goodies I have collected from The Arcade Gacha Events. I am starting to get my groove back for the most part finally. Cassie Middles has created the; ‘Vlog of The Week Challenge’.

Vlog of the Week Challenge. Each week there will be a new theme/idea to build around. Try to do a video around your set up and blog post, so you can show it off and how hard you work on your photos. Don’t blog? Then show off your favorite look or an inspired vlog from the week’s theme, it can be a machinima, a speed edit, a song, a dance, anything, just have fun with it!

So above is my take on Grunge, I was a bit disappointed with the things that I own, as I had a few other pieces that would’ve worked perfectly but they were made years ago; meaning standard sizing only and nothing worked with my mesh body too well. I did a total of 3 outfit and I’ll post the credits below. Have a great weekend! ♥
