So, the meme going around the blogs this week is What's in your bag. So, I've decided to try it out and show whats in mine. I usually don't carry around a bag - I prefer to just shove some money and important things in my pockets and go off. But sometimes at events and stuff, I carry one around.

  1. I am picky about my bags - I don't like them to be like duffel bags or really big, so I try to get the smallest bag possible that will hold all my important things. This little Dooney & Burke bag was my gift to myself when I got my first income tax check. :P
  2. My car faceplate. I never leave it in my car, even when I park in the garage. Its such a habit now that it comes out of the car with me, and back in the car whenever I go in it. Somehow, the remote to the stereo comes with me too xD
  3. Car keys. All I have on my keyring is my Camaro logo thing, the 2 keys required to get into and start up the car (yep, its an older car, so no spiffy automatic door thingers for me!). I also have the mailbox key on the ring too. :D
  4. My wallet. It holds what little monies I have, old student ID cards, driver's license, and other important things. It was a gift that was supposed to match another bag I had at the time, but I don't have that bag anymore.... was too big XD
  5. 2 pens. Just in case one goes out, I have a back up. And, they are my most favorite pens.... ever.
  6. My cell phone. Its old, outdated and ancient, but hey - it works. Its uncomplicated and I've had it for years. :D
  7. The pill container - my moblie pharmacy. I keep tylenol, midol, allergy medicine, and whatever else I need in there. Just pop it open, choose a pill and be happeh. :D
Haha, I'm so boring. XD


So, my computer really died on me this time, and I have a feeling I will be paying out the rear for it to get fixed. I've had this same problem before, but since then, its got really worse, and it seems nothing I can do will fix it. I've been logging in to SL using a spare PC that is absolutely horrible with running SL, to spend time with Kamian and do a couple other random things. And not being able to leave my land because of PC lag makes a Sai very grumpy lately.

I feel really bad for the poor souls who have to listen to me rant and complain about my PC problems, and Kamian has been really patient with me. But still, I was really looking forward to spending my Christmas in SL with him. I really have everything I want in SL - which made gift ideas really difficult for him, I'm sure.

But, there was one gift he gave me that I will remember for a long time. But first, a back story: He invited me to come with him to his friend's wedding a while ago, which was sweet - it was like, our first event as a couple. :P So, we dressed up and went. Afterwards, he told me he wanted photosphere pictures of us dressed up, which made me go "Hmmm.. O.o;" ... because he never really brings up wanting to get photosphere pictures.

But, we got some cute ones together, and I am thankful I saved the ones I got onto my flash drive before my computer crashed. Anyway, he was snapping pictures away, and I don't think I realized how many pictures he was taking. XD

So, we exchanged gifts yesterday, because we both had RL things on Christmas and such - I never expected him to have done something like what he did, it caught me so off guard. This was my super-awesome Christmas gift from him:

Kamian and Sai by Gabrielle Sinatra

He had talked to Gabrielle Sinatra about photoshopping this particular picture of us that he took during our little shoot. I was so in shock that he had done something like this for me, I seriously couldn't think of anything to say. To me, it was the most perfect gift. He had framed it really pretty for me in-world, and it looks so awesome.

It's just a picture though? No wai. It's the thought that he got some good photos from our little photoshoot, that he liked it so much to actually make arrangements to make it even better... it made my little store cards I got for him look so lame. :/

I was so happy for the rest of the day, and even into today. I've never had any photo "professionally" done by anyone, so this was extremely amazing, I cried for like 10 minutes - I was so happeh and touched by it all. XD After dealing with some RL things, mainly being my PC death, I was so emotional over this. I don't even think he realized how much I'd love it. :P I hung it on the wall in the kitchen - which is pretty much the only place I am able to, considering my house on Byakuya is almost completely glass. I told him he has to make me a house thats focused around this picture now :P

Kamian did all the talking to Gabrielle Sinatra and stuff, but he said she was really awesome to work with and, in my opinion - she did some amazing work on this picture. Her flickr stream is filled with all sorts of fantastic pictures, so I think, if you are looking for some shots done, she is definitely worth contacting.

So, to Kamian - Thank you for making my SL Christmas and the rest of my SL the brightest it can possibly be, even in my frustrating time of PC crisis. I hope we can pass more holidays in SL together. ^^

Everyone else - I hope you all had an awesome, safe holiday, and have fun plans for the new year. :D


Thanks guys, for all your comments in the last post. Yus, he's totally adorable, awesome, and makes a Sai happeh happeh. :D And, he lets me drag him around to see pretty places on the grid, go shopping with me, and all kinds of stuff. So, we went to visit the Las Lagunas sim a while ago - but, I just now got around to editing pictures and blogging them.

laslagunas (6)

I should mention first that I have begun slightly post processing scenery pictures, to make them a little brighter and more lively, but I'll never take away the true beauty of a sim ^^

laslagunas (7)

Anyway, Las Lagunas reminded me a bit of like, a really spiffy and posh resort thing. It was filled with sculpties everywhere (which, honestly made my PC run a lot slower), but it looked really pretty.

laslagunas (8)

The majority of the sim seemed to be empty rooms, open for rent for a store or something. Kind of a pretty place to open up a store, I think.

laslagunas (9)

This place just has tons and tons of photo opportunities and can come up with some really great shots.

laslagunas (10)

And, it even has a pool that uses system water, which I think its a brilliant idea. Kamian seemed to find his way into this picture - taking a swim when he thought no one was looking, I guess. XD

laslagunas (12)

Another picture of the pool, closer, and a different angle. Totally pretty.

laslagunas (13)

There was also some kind of club thing here, it looked like. It had something that looked like a DJ table, and stuff. ^^

laslagunas (1)

While all that was pretty, my favorite area was behind the resort thing, where all the palm trees and open sand was.

laslagunas (2)

A few months ago, I would have went to Bora Bora Isles for some beachy pictures. But now I don't think I can imagine going anywhere else - because this sim was just way too photogenic. ^^

laslagunas (4)

Seriously, it is really beautiful, even without post processing. I think if you haven't been to check it out yet, you definitely should soon.

laslagunas (3)

I even managed to sneak this picture of Kamian while I was there.

laslagunas (5)

I always have to take a picture of us, no matter which sim we visit, so here is the one for Las Lagunas.

Ok, it's obvious I've been hanging out with Kamian quite a bit from all my exploring posts lately - so he's not really new to my blog. Several of my friends know by now (and even suspected before it happened - how does that happen, anyway? XD), but - I'm currently seeing him (officially?) now. :D I iz happeh!


While he is quite a non-public person, he did agree to let me write this blog post. As I told him, I respect his privacy, and I will attempt to keep my writings on him as minimal as I can, but - since he is part of my SLife now, he is bound to pop up every now and then.


So, I took him into the photosphere with me to get some pictures of us for this post. I've never really modeled with anyone before, but he was quite patient while I freakishly perfected each pose's position and all.

Anyway, I'll wrap it up here now. I can probably go on and yap about him for hours, but I don't think he'd be to happy with me. :P


Hi guys! Today I am happeh happeh! I've been struggling with the Pixel Mode house I purchased a few weeks ago. It has tons of wall space to fill, and too many rooms. I attempted to take out the walls and create a huge room - but it ended in total fail.

So, I went hunting down a new house. I went everywhere I could think of, and ended up somewhere I've never been before. This place didn't have their houses out on display to see, but I thought one looked so cute in the picture, I had to buy it.


I am so pleased with it. Its much easier to furnish than the Pixel Mode was, and I love all the windows in it. It came with the kitchen, the fireplace and shelves in the bedroom, which is awesome. I plan on posting more pictures later on - when I get it all furnished.

But, I did come across a few really annoying problems. The windows do not tint. This is quite important to me, because when I organize inventory, I am often on my pose stand naked, and the Envision covenant says no public nekkie! So, I purchased some window tint on SLX, dropped the scripts in, and went :D Also - the doors didn't lock. I brought out my awesome scripts from Scripts R Us, and popped them in the doors - yay! Works!

Also - the house originally had a pool. But, why would I have a pool, when I have a whole ocean and pond? So, I took it out, and made it a concrete slab - perfect place for a spa :D


I feel like this right now:


Why, you ask? I shall tell you :D
  1. I'm extremely stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner. I love pumpkin pies, but I'm so full, I don't think my stomach is capable of eating any anytime soon. XD
  2. Family. OMG, there is nothing I hate more than dealing with the family during the Holidays. Its so exhausting. :/
  3. I finally finished my Lolita pose set. Its been a bit exhausting to do, but I'm excited to be done with them. I just need to make the picks rewards gift, make ads, and stick them in the store. I'm hoping to be done with this by Sunday.
  4. There are a few things that have been on my head lately, but am unsure about them as of right now. However, I don't really want to blog about them until they are done, finished, sorted out, and for certain. So, its been draining my thoughts a bit. They are very awesome things that I'm very excited about, but - just needs to take some time to come to reality. ^^
So, I am stuffed full with foods, tired, exhausted, and bleh feeling, but, I am quite happeh! \o/


OMG, I'm feeling so much better now without a toothache, so back to blogging I go! I mentioned a few posts ago that - I got tired of my little black house, and decided to move on to a bigger, lighter colored home. So, I went back to Pixel Mode and purchased a beautiful home - The Fallingbridge.

Now for my rant. It wasn't long before I realized: this house does not have lockable doors. I live next to a club, and it seems random people like to come up to my door, so lockable doors is a must for me. I was shocked that this home wasn't equipped with them, so I sent the creator a notecard about it a few days after purchasing.

Over a week later, I received no answer. I decided I was done waiting, and spent ALL NIGHT last night working with these doors and trying to find a script that works with multi-prim double doors. I finally found some, which worked awesome! OMG, thank you for offering these scripts for so cheap, Scripts'R'Us! All I really had to do was drop them in and go. \o/

So, here is a preview of the house, as of last night:


However. In my half angry state of "omg this stupid doors", I got the not-so-smart idea to mod my house. It is a beautiful house with 3 rooms, a hallway and a large bedroom, but I've been having sooooo much trouble deciding what to put in 3 separate rooms. So, my idea was, to take out walls, and just make it one giant room. Well.... epic fail!


I now have this HUGE room that I have absolutely no idea what to do with. Seriously, I'm clueless ;_; I already have a couch and a fireplace, and a bedroom - so, I'm stumped on this room. I also got another idea to retexture the floor. Note to self: No SL while angry! :O


I got a dog too! I call him Chevy, and he is kinda fun to share the house with. It does suck being in this house alone, so having Chevy to play with is cool. He is one of Zooby's new Ultimate Pets that interact with toys. Very cool :D


Sorry for my lack of blogging lately. I've been having some really bad toothache problems, as I touched on in my last post. I have no health insurance, and going to a dentist was not an option for me. So, I've been irritable, frustrated and in a foul mood the past couple weeks. I've been feeling a lot like this lately:


Seeing how my toothache will not be going away, my uncle offered to pay for them to get pulled, as an early Christmas gift, so... yesterday, two wisdom teeth departed from my mouth. I still feel kinda bleh from having them pulled, and I need to remember to take the antibiotics they gave me (omg, how can a tooth get infected, anyway? XD) I do feel soooooo much better without my toothache, its amazing. I'm also excited I'll be able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner without pain this year \o/

So, I do have plans to finish the Lolita poses and the December Picks Rewards gift definitely by the end of this month. :D Hmmm. The picks reward poses are going to be difficult to make, I have no idea what I want to do! :O Something with snow? What kind of poses do you do in snow? XD

And, another goal I have now I'm able to focus on things: get my inventory under control, in time for the Christmas hunts. :D


So, I know I haven't been blogging as much as I used to. I've been having a really bad toothache for the past week or so that has given me constant pain, and painkillers do not help at all. I've also been looking for a new place to live in RL, so that is sapping away time and energy from me as well. But anyway - enough of that, I have finally started on a new pose set currently being called "Lolita".


I've only made 2 so far, but its a start. I think these might be more difficult than the previous sets I've made, just because I can't find many pictures with lolita-style dresses. But, I think these 2 poses turned out pretty cute :D My goal is to have them finished by Thanksgiving, so I can focus on a big release for Christmas.

I've also updated my blogroll thing to that new-ish spiffy list that sorts blogs by the date updated. :D I've added a couple blogs, and also updated a few. It's been something I've been meaning to do for a while, but always seemed so difficult. And surprisingly, it wasn't too difficult. :D


So, I've been doing a bit of grid-hopping with Kamian, and I still think its fun! This time, I don't know how it started, but we got the idea to go to Victorianna Castle. I was there a long time ago, before my blogger blog, and it still had a few places that were being worked on, I think.

This was also the perfect time to get all dressed up in theme and have fun, so I scoped out the most adorable gothic-lolita dress I can find (with help from tons of plurky people!).


Victorianna is an impressive build, really. Its quite old, and can probably be made even more awesome by SL's modern sculpties now - but, I think it's still amazing.


And, with all these prims used, I find it pretty amazing that its located on mainland! How did they manage that? :O


And no matter which camera angle you use - it still looks amazing XD


The part that was unfinished last time I visited, turned out to be a ballroom! Beautiful, and well done, but still makes a single Sai very sad. :P


I didn't explore all of it with Kamian though, because we happened to find this gigantor chair and sat there for half the time talking xD


And, my attire for the exploration! Aisuru asked me a little while ago to do poses for poofy dresses, so when I seen this, I was totally inspired to do Poofy Dress/Lolita poses! I plan on making them really cutesy-like, so I'm going to have fun with this series of poses :D

So, I dragged Kamian away from building, to come explore a sim with me! It's actually really weird to go explore with someone else again. I've been exploring sims for a while by myself, that it just doesn't really seem fun anymore. So, to have someone to roam around with, actually brought some fun back into it for me. ^^

I had to warn him beforehand that I took TONS of pictures of everything and everyone, and he was pretty patient with me as I took all the pictures I wanted. And, he even took a few of his own :P

So, I dragged him away to the "Rez" sim. It reminds me a little of AM Radio's builds (such as The Far Away and The Quiet), and also a bit like ChouChou. But, its really beautiful.


The really sad thing, is that it's a OpenSpace sim, so it might be going poof soon, with the new LL rate changes and stuff. So, I think - if you want to check it out, it might be best to hurry up and see it, just in case ^^


It kind of had the tone of a old, rundown small town, that was abandoned, and left to fall apart.


My PC doesn't like to capture glow with high-res snapshots, but this was actually really pretty in here, with light rays and all. ^^ Even writing on the wall, which didn't make much sense to me.


Some parts of this sim were just eerie and creepy. Like, seriously.


Though, it does make for some pretty awesome pictures ^^


There are a couple wheelchairs around the sim. One is even flipped over and broken, in a bunch of bloody smears :O


I used the "Blizzard" windlight setting to take my pictures, which I think was perfect because of all the falling snow around.


Kamian suggested the tracks look like the ones from the anime movie, Spirited Away, and they really do.


I snapped a picture of him, and I didn't think he was expecting it at the time. (Hey, I did warn him that I take lots of pictures, and he should be prepared to be blogged! :P)


I also managed to snap a few pictures of us. I tend to do this with every sim I explore - get at least one photo of me in the sim, with whoever I visit with xD


Also managed to get another one. It was a really beautiful place, and it's really been a long time since I visted something so interesting and pretty.

So, quite a few crazy things have been happening lately. I decided to get a new house (pictures will follow once I finish it), Envision's sim texture has been changed to snow, and I somehow got involved in a bunny war! :O

So, in Ch'Know chat, Laleeta mentioned something that I didn't even see her joke, and I was like, huh? After scrolling up through chat, thinking I missed something, I looked outside the doors to my land, to find this:


After several :O :O 's, I decided to fight back! (BTW, this is about my giant bunnies I bought, which can be seen in my last post here) My response that I placed on her land:


Let the bunneh wars begin! \o/



So, I've been somewhat busy this week! While I was wandering around my land, I came to the realization that I had tons of space unused. I really only wanted a smaller plot of land when I bought it, but I wanted extra land for the prims. OMG, I'm such a prim hog! But anyway, I decided to make my pond bigger, to use up some extra space. I mean, I pay for it, I might as well use it all, right?


The first thing I did was go out and purchase the two adorable HPMD bunnies that I've been wanting, ever since I seen them on Laleeta's land. These are what I molded my new pond around :D


I think they are totally awesome, and have poses built into them! XD


I do think the new pond turned out pretty well. Its much bigger now, and I put in a couple more trees, and I enjoy it :D With the size of it, can it really be called a pond anymore? Or is it a lake now? *Scratches chin*

In addition to making my pond bigger, I've also been working on some new poses that I finally finished last night! These are inspired from "Red Carpet" events, and gave me a chance to use the huge stack of People magazines that my roommate/cousin brings home from the grocery store every week.


I am actually pleased with these. My main concern with these type of poses, was that they were going to end up looking the same. Because, as I flipped through the magazines looking at the poses, actors/musicians really only stand a few ways as they pose for pictures. But luckily, I had so many magazines with so many pictures, I didn't have much trouble at all with it. ^^

I still need to make ads for these, and I hope to have this set, as well as the couple's pose finished and in the store by Friday :D

And yes. I really do go out in public looking like that. O.o;


I think, my new store is a huge inspiration. I've started "Red Carpet" poses, which will be based on the poses that celebrities do walking into the Oscars or whatever. And, I also did a couple's pose, which, I will show a teaser picture here:


It originated from a manga called MARS, where the female was laying on the guy, with her face buried in his chest. Well, I couldn't get it to look decent with the SL avatars, so I took the idea, and made it my own, into something that works. :D

Should be hitting IE in the next couple of days. ^^

BTW, I won't bore you all with the "I Voted" stuff, because.... I don't vote! (And am slightly annoyed by all the political crap on TV lately) :D I will be soooooo happy when its over, so I can go back to watching normal commercials. ^^


I blogged about the Harvest Faerie gown from Sparkle Skye on Fashion Labyrinth, my fashion-ish blog, but, it just screamed at me to take more pictures of it - only, it called for a more natural environment. I asked the Ch'Know group if they knew of any "autumn" type sims, and one of the suggestions was Tempura Island. So, I headed there, and it was the PERFECT setting for what I wanted (Thank you Nikki!).


It's actually been a while since I did something like this, and I was reminded about how frustrating it was. I am such a freak with getting poses the way I like, lining up the camera.... but then just as I am about to snap my picture, someone walks behind me, stop, slumps over, and goes in Away mode. *bangs head on desk*


However, I think they came out well, and I did photoshop them slightly to make the colors richer. I do kinda feel bad when I say "I photoshopped them", because what I did was just added a blur and changed the layer settings, but they are not straight out of SL.


And, I think this might be the best picture I've ever taken. I think it is absolutely perfect, with how I wanted the mood to be, the colors, and the pose. I think it's beautiful. ^^ If there was one thing I would change, is to be a little taller, so the bottom of the gown shows. But still, it holds it's own charm ^^
