Give your heart and soul to me, And Life will always be La Vie En Rose….

 

Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff

Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck

 

PocketGacha is starting it’s September Round on September 15, 2017. KraftWork has made a beautiful Shotgun Jazz Club. The craftsmanship of this collection is beyond beautiful and is a must have for those music lovers as well as lovers of all things vintage.

I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

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.

..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! ♥
