Divide and conquer

Good morning folks! It’s finally Friday and I’ve never been happier. Felt like this week would never end. Don’t know if I’ll be working tomorrow or not yet, but I do believe in magic, so all you have to do today is, focus your energy on me having the weekend off. If it works I will love you forever.

So, today’s post features new gacha stuff from Concept, currently at Kustom 9. There are three rares in the set (you can have a look at the gacha key here), one of them is the fire place. The way it is designed it gave me the idea of one room cut in half and that should explain the name of the post as well. It did give me a hard time taking a picture of it, but I believe I managed to capture everything there.

Have a look below for every item used in the picture and enjoy your shopping.

Beauty horror

Hello world! I got carried away, working on a picture that I didn’t realize how late I am for work. So, I can’t really stay much longer, even though I want to. You can also tell by the fact that I couldn’t even come up with an original title for the post. Genesis has me covered though. Have a look at the credits below for all the details and I’ll see you all next time.

Good morning world. It took me a couple of hours to make this picture and a couple of hours and a half to write the credits down! I feel like I need to send a gift to anyone who manages to read the whole list.

To make it easier on you, I’ve categorized the credits with new releases first and next to every one of them I’ve added a preview for you to see a clear picture of the item. I realize there’s too much clutter in the picture so it might be hard for some to tell which is which. Look at it as a game as well. First look at the preview and then, try to find it in the picture. There, and you thought your Wednesday today would be boring! Hehe.

Best, isn’t good enough.

Hello world! It might be a somewhat sad post today but only because I’m pretty emotional since last night. I could share the whole story but I won’t. No need to name names or point fingers. Let’s just say I was let go from a store I used to blog for, without any prior warning or discussion about their intention. I was really surprised that happened, since I kept my part of the deal. I met the requirements and, I believe, I did everything I could to showcase their stuff, best way possible. Best, is not good enough though. And hey, it’s their decision and I have to accept and respect it. I’m still so grateful I got the opportunity to be part of their team in the first place.

Rejection is part of our lives. If you think about it, we get rejected constantly, in so many different ways. But sometimes, it can’t help but feel personal. This was not a Blueberry application, where you got rejected only because 1.000 other bloggers applied. I can live with that. This is being rejected after being part of the team!

I have mentioned before how blogging is therapeutic to me. It’s a brilliant escape to forget my troubles and distract me from the things that bother me. It’s also a lot of sacrifices. It’s the time away from my friends in RL, my friends in SL, my family. It’s also the times I missed my dance classes, I was late for work or lost sleep. Clearly I made the wrong choices and let SL take over RL but I will stand by my decisions, because they make me happy. It is what it is.

I once read a quote: Confidence is not “they will like me”. Confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t”. And it’s true! Now, if you’re a stubborn Virgo like me, you know that the best thing to do next is, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, remember why you started this in the first place and prove them wrong. At least, that’s what I plan on doing.

Hello folks! Did everyone have a nice weekend? I did, it wasn’t a very productive one – not as much as I would want to anyways, but oh well, I’m only human! I don’t have much time to ramble today so I’ll just give you the day off and let you read the super long list of credits instead. Sometimes, it is more interesting than what I have to say.

Finding comfort in the chaos

Hello world! This is probably the first bathroom scene I’ve ever made and the best opportunity to let you know that I’m a huge bathroom fan. I think I spend more time in the bathroom than I do in the bedroom. Does that sound weird? Well, it’s true!

Ever since I was young, I would always do my homework in the bathroom or talk on the phone and I have also slept in the bathtub once! If that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will. I guess the fact that I’ve always had big bathrooms has something to do with it.

So, anyways, today, thanks to DRD’s new Shadow Box release, I got to decorate my own pretty little bathroom. If you’re not familiar with the Shadow Box yet, I’ve blogged everything about it here.

Best is yet to come

Hello world! I wanted something positive and optimistic as a title today and I found it. I do consider myself a positive person in general and you won’t see me publicly create any drama or negativity, unless you check my private conversations with Julie – yes I pay for her Xanax. Even in my weakest or most vulnerable moments, when I become more sensitive and can’t think straight, I remind myself that the wise thing to do is breathe and listen and also, think! And hey, complaining about the weather doesn’t count! So, the best is yet to come peeps!

Today I’m showing you new hair by monso and outfit by Addams.. oh and new group gift from Vale Koer at the new location. So have a look below for the deets and enjoy shopping.

Hello world! I don’t have much time to ramble today so I’ll just move on to the stuff. There is a new awesome build by Hive at Salem and since you’re there, check out the ravens JIAN made as well.

You know, I was really tempted to play with you all and hide a raven somewhere in the picture, to see who would eventually find it. Hmm..I actually regret not doing that now, so maybe next time!

Remember when…

There are so many ways to end that sentence right now but I figured each and every one of you should pick their own. I would probably go first with something like “…you used to sleep for like 8 hours and feel all fresh in the morning?”. But hey, no whining. It is only temporary, normal life is around the corner, I just know it!

Hello, by the way! Today I want you to focus on these legwarmers Friday made for N21 event. With the winter coming up, they definitely feel necessary! Event ends in a couple of days so you don’t have much time left. Locations and landmarks are all listed below so have a look there for all the details.

Good morning peeps. Well, it’s 1pm so technically that counts as noon, right? Especially when you’ve woken up at 7am to go to work. It’s going to be a rough couple of weeks ahead for me, as my RL work requires me to be there every day for, well, pretty much the whole day. Julie oftens calls me a superwoman for doing many things at the same time and she makes me laugh! I only hope I don’t prove her wrong this time.

Today’s post is a fashion one, featuring new stuff from Pixicat, Beusy and alaskametro that can be currently found at Salem. The head I’m wearing is the new Genesis head, they offered as a group gift and I’ve told you all about it here, so you can go ahead and read that for more information. The make-up I’m wearing is new though and currently at Uber.
