I have been having such a lovely time with MadPea‘s Rewind & Play collection for The Arcade. So many of these items bring back childhood memories for me and the extra little touches and features have really been making me giggle. Evey item is interactive so you truly can play with these adorable toys! It’s hard to pick favourites but the custom pictures in the ‘Wind & Watch‘ and the brilliantly rude ‘Crazy Jack‘ have made me laugh so hard!

I’m always blown away by everything MadPea produces – it’s why I jumped at the opportunity to become a dedicated blogger for them – but the quality of these items is honestly astounding – I get a such a sense of tactile-ness from them, as if I can almost really feel their textures.. I really recommend you check them out for yourselves!

Now please excuse me while I go wake up Jack again.. later!

LOTD ~ 06-19-14: Ricielli World Cup Hunt

061914LOTDI mentioned in my last post that I was considering trying to fit more in during the week and this is my road test of that idea. I love spending time writing more detailed blog entries but they take so long to do that I can realistically only manage about one a week. I took a little look back at how frequently I used to post and it made me feel somewhat nostalgic – also, sometimes I just don’t have that much to say other than ‘ohmahgawdilovethischeckitout’ and I figure that would get ridiculously boring to read over and over again!

So, I’ve decided to reintroduce some more standard, look of the day, posts that consist of a simple studio shot, a few words with any crucial information needed, and the usual list of credits (minus a few things like photo studio type stuff and windlights used). I may be playing with how I present these for a while until I settle on a look I’m happy with so please bear with me!

I’m excited with the idea of hopefully being able to blog a little more often and perhaps keep up to date with a few time-sensitive events and offers. For example, this look was inspired by a store hunt being held by  for the World Cup – there are 20 fabulous mesh items to be found inside footballs (I’m British, I refuse to call it ‘soccer’ 😛 ) dotted around the store (they’re pretty big so you don’t have to hunt too hard!) and each costs just L$15. I’m not too sure when this hunt ends but can see more details on their Facebook page here and find the SLURL in the credits.

I hope you’ll enjoy these LOTD posts – obviously they’ll contain less yabbering from now on! 😀

Loves ya! ❤
