Humble such a nice word, I saw a quote today, I know I know I’m a huge lover of them lol it said “I’m humble enough to know I am no better than anyone else and wise enough to know I am different than the rest”  I love this quote and a great way to be in my opinion, I am just average every day girl, nothing special just a nice person, a good friend to have and loyal to the end,  does this make me a push over?   Far from it, I just choose my battles wisely and let the small things go as let’s face it there is bigger more important things to worry about, so focus on those.

I would like to think I am a humble person, am I different from the rest, I would like to think so to, because differences are what make us unique, original, I have never been one to run with the crowd just because they are popular, I would sooner be loved for who I am and make friendships built on love, trust, loyalty, companionship not because they are “the cool kids” I guess that makes me secure in who I am, yes I still have insecurities like most people do, lots of them it feels at times lol but one thing I am confident in is that I am a nice person, who treats others how I like to be treated.  I give everyone a chance and form opinions on my own not word of mouth.   I am also very fortunate to have some wonderful friends in real life, and online too some of which I have had the good fortune to meet in real life,  this not only makes me lucky it makes me very thankful,  what are you thankful for in your life?

Have a good evening everyone ♥

Exploration comes in many forms, from exploration of you, your likes and dislikes, from exploring new colours in your wardrobe or makeup, new music genres, even new circles of people, lifestyles and even places.   It’s one of the things I love about Second Life being able to explore things you may not have the confidence or ability to explore in real life.

I am a very non-judgemental person and a firm believer of each to their own, what is for me isn’t necessarily for others and vice versa and in Second Life that is definitely needed.  I love to see and watch people’s differences, even seeing all the different styles of fashion and looks people create, it amazes me at times.

In my blogging I explore many things, from hair, to makeup, to Mesh heads, skins and clothes and huge credit goes to the amazing designers out there that make all that possible.  Today’s post I have another fabulous head by Catwa and one that’s been released as a static head for 400L which if you’re a Catwa group member you get 100L back as store credit,  she’s so pretty.  Add to that the gorgeous new Dolce skin by Amara beauty and I was one happy girlie lol.   I finished my look by the newly released dress by the awesome PaperMoon designer and what better way to show it than to use the new and exclusive release by MEOW POSES Innocent Pose which is available at the Suicide Dollz event, so why not do some exploration yourself and check them all out.

Have a great day everyone ♥

Oh gosh, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Let me start this post by congratulating and thanking Jules for keeping this blog running with her amazing posts and wonderful ideas. Unofficially I felt like I had to take a small break, even though I didn’t go anywhere. So knowing she’s here, prepared and ready to post something for you all, every day, made me stress less.

My birthday was this week and I also felt that my SL had taken over my RL, so it was very important for me to stop for a while. I can’t complain though. This has resulted in me resting a lot plus making me miss blogging even more. So hopefully, I will come back, stronger and better!

This post is for the Fetish Fair event that opened on the 19th of August and will stay open until the 2nd of September. Lybra participates and sponsors the event with this rawr outfit so I knew I couldn’t help but making a picture in it. Of course I had the wonderful help of the super talented Tyler De’Leon who also made the pose you see in the picture.

I’m afraid that’s all from me at the moment. My friend Rora Tigerpaw opens her art gallery in a couple of hours and I need to go get ready for it. You can click here for more info about it. I will see you all there, yes?

Big hugs to everyone. Have a wonderful night.

I’ve called this one Best Friends Celebrate in honour of my best friend, partner in crime and partner on the blog Exis who is celebrating her birthday today.   I’ve been fortunate to celebrate a few birthdays with her now and each one is special as the last however every day with Exis is special.

She is my Best Friend, my rock at times, the person who makes me laugh when I don’t even want to, my confident and someone I am thankful of having in my life each and every day.   From the day I met her to today I have watched her go through some amazing times, some awful times and some of the most hilarious stories ever heard.

I am proud of the woman she has grown to be, she will always be a brat, a princess and the best friend you can have,  so a huge Happy Birthday Exis my wonderful bestie, have an amazing day.  Love you lots ♥

Best Friend

Life is one long journey with many different paths we can take both in RL and also in our Virtual worlds too.   Paths which can lead us to good, to happiness and paths that can lead us to unhappiness, both are choices that at that time where right for us but ultimately once realised the paths that don’t necessarily bring us fulfilment or happiness we can then decide to either stick with it and hope for the best or we can change it.

I have been down many paths that have brought me extreme happiness and fulfilment be it a real life job or online adventures of which there have been many from being Moderator for chat rooms, to being an online DJ for an online radio station to my latest path of that of blogger of Second Life fashion.   This is bringing me challenges which I thrive on, happiness, well who doesn’t love to shop and buy lovely things, to meeting new people on a daily basis whether its in world friends or those we cross paths with daily on Flickr etc.   I feel very fortunate to be who I am and have the people I have in my life surrounding me in both online and the real world but one thing is for sure, each path and destination brings us to the person we are meant to be.   So as the quote says “Find the joy in the journey”  I know I do.

Have a wonderful day everyone ♥

Find the joy in the journey

Sky Fallen is the new Sim involving the Elysion month long Photography challenge  If you’re not aware of what Elysion is, it’s an amazing Sim you can explore in SL, which has many different parts and all as breathtakingly beautiful as each other.   There is a group joining fee but believe me if you’re like me and love to explore Second Life or you may be a budding photographer or blogger Elysion is a must have in my opinion.  I have spent so many hours there, taken so many pictures and still I haven’t finished yet.

Now on to Sky Fallen, this is a separate sim to Elysion that is only available during the challenge from 20th August until 18th September and you need to be a member of Elysion to gain access.  I went there today and the small part I have so far seen is simply stunning.  The designers are hugely gifted, talented, amazing at what they do to create such wonderful places.  You can also add any pictures you take to the White Pines Gallery Flickr Group located here.    Check it out you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Wednesday Everyone ♥

I’ve named today’s post Tumble in honour of the gorgeous new head by Catwa, I have bought a number of Catwa Heads during my time blogging, aswell as my own personal head which is the Jessica head and I must say Tumble has got to be one of my top favourites so far.

Catwa has certainly outdone herself with this little beauty.   She can be purchased in store now as Basic with all your normal add on packs, and the Demo is also available both in store and on MP.

Strawberry Singh actually put together a wonderful video too which actually shows you the head with a number of different skins, all gorgeous I might add and I admit to having purchased a few myself to use in my blogging adventures.   Click here if you want to check the video out, I know I found it really useful to watch, aswell as seeing all the amazing pictures from fellow bloggers on Flickr.

Is it me, or ever since Catwa released her new head, there are Megan Fox(es) all over SL? Well, I won’t be any different, as I happen to find Megan Fox is really a fox! This fact though, had me thinking a lot about originality on SL. How original can one be after all and for how long? Yes, the mesh heads/bodies/clothes are plenty but isn’t it a matter of time before someone wears it exactly the way you do or sometimes, even better? Frankly, I don’t see anything wrong with that. People can be inspired by everything and everyone and if I manage to inspire even one person only, my job is done. I’m happy with it.

Before I forget, the Makeover Room is about to close its doors. Event ends on the 25th so you still have time to go grab the goodies. All items in the event are discounted, until the event closes and they return to mainstore for normal price.

Also, Evolove participates in the Pose Lover & Friends Event with 3 “Dream” poses. Personally, I prefer working with unusual and unconventional poses, so Evolove is usually where I look first.

That’s all for today, hope you all have a great day!

Well unfortunately we are a good way through summer now so what better way to start the day than some beach fun, Black Basalt sim was perfect for this and I got to try out all my new accessories like the Water Drops by Nanika or the Body Sand by Izzie, they are a great way to make it look and feel even more real when you’re taking a picture, I even went to Argrace and purchased the wet hair look too, so much fun and of course I didn’t stop at the one hair style, I swear I am not safe to go shopping alone lol.

I finished today’s pose with the sexy bikini by Zara plus the awesome pose by Q Poses which is available at the Pose Lover & Friends Event.   So there you have it, fun times, I thoroughly enjoyed this shot, and hopefully have given you all some ideas to go buy too.

Happy Monday Everyone ♥

Fun at the Beach
