Raid the cabinet

You’ve all been to Elysion sim, right? If not, I highly recommend it – you can find the landmark below in my credits.

What I love most about Elysion is how it meets all styles. You can find so many spots to pose and take a picture. Also, you can rez in it. Group join is required, and not for free, but hey, we have to keep the sim running! One funny thing about this sim, is how you run into people you’ve interracted with on Flickr or other social media. Happened to me yesterday, as I was posing there, minding my own business, I came across so many familiar faces and names. Later on I realized that I am following these people on Flickr.

When I joined SL a few months ago, Jules, who’s been on SL longer than me, actually told me “SL is so much fun, but not as sociable as you would expect it to be. You hardly ever meet people or see someone twice”. She has a point. SL is huge, so many stores, events, clubs, and sims in general, that the chances of running into someone twice, are very small.

I beg to differ now though. Photography sims and especially the Elysion, are a bloggers dream. I say, you want to meet people? Probably the ones you see and admire on social media too? Well, most likely they will hang out in picturesque sims. I know it’s happened to me twice already, so I think it’s very possible!

If you ever run into me, please say hi. If I don’t answer back right away, I’m probably struggling with styling, decorating (only recently) or windlighting. So the best case scenario (for me), you can actually give a hand. Lol.

Oh! Before I forget, complete list of stores participating in the new round of On9 is now available on their website.

Have a good day!

Anyone fancy a day at the Beach?

Well we are half way through summer,  Autumn is approaching and yet as some of you may or not know I live in the UK and unfortunately for me up North where I live, it’s rare to get sunshine and then when we do we complain it’s too hot lol.

Well today is yet another glum dull day, rain is looming and you know when you just yearn for that sunshine, the warm on your skin as you slowely tan, well yes not going to happen for me so instead I will savour it in my imagination at the Khaled Beach,  enjoy the peace, quiet as I feel the cool breeze as I lay reading, or soaking up the sun…..sounds silly right?   Well what is Second Life all about?   Embracing the fantasy of something new, using your imagination to lose yourself in something that is beautiful, so who is up for a day at the beach?

Happy Tuesday everyone ♥

Today’s post is called faith and a totally random name because I saw this quote and it made me laugh.   It was raining cats and dogs again in the UK today, I know I know what’s new eh lol so I stayed inside nice and dry and instead took myself to a lovely beach at the gorgeous Khaled sim on SL.

The World Is Yours…(I Stand For Peace)

“You can’t expect to see change if you never do anything differently”

The world is yours…the world is you and me and everyone on it. The world is beautiful, huge and so small at the same time. The world is also dying. Hatred, violence, racism, terrorism and catastrophes are examples only to begin with and actually, we’re all responsible. Mostly because we do nothing about it.

I have stopped watching the news ever since Greece went bankrupt. All that drama suffocated me, people were killing themselves out of desperation, others out of embarrassment as they had lost their jobs and couldn’t provide to their families and others just starved to death. It was a complete chaos. You would see homeless people everywhere in the streets and people turning against each other, even at their closest friends, only because they were still lucky enough to have a job.

So since I realized that all this awful situation brought me down, I decided I will shut it all down. I will try to think positive (even though my family was massively affected as well) and I will just help people in any way that I can. Of course, shutting yourself down is impossible. You might not watch the news but the news will get to you. Friends of mine were moving out of the country hoping for a better future, others started doing drug dealing or soliciting only to make 20 euros and drama was back into my life all over again. Then of course, looking at this globally, many countries have suffered before Greece and unfortunately, there are many to follow.

What the world is really suffering from is lack of solidarity. We’ve forgotten what is like to be human. We’ve forgotten that we’re supposed to help each other and be kind to one another. Then again, what is right for me, might be wrong for you. Disbelief and religion cause fanaticism, which leads to hatred and obsession, which lead to terrorism and extremism, which lead to thousands and thousands of people having lost their lives for nothing.

I’m still young and I want to have children one day. I don’t want to raise them in this world. I know I’m responsible as well for being ignorant when my friend was having problems, for voting for the wrong people to represent me in the parliament and for so many other reasons. I once read online “you can’t expect to see change if you never do anything differently”. It is so true. And it’s what I’ve been doing ever since. Things differently. We can change the world, we can be the change we want to see in others. We can set the example and we can start now.

I’m so privileged to be part of this big community of SL, to have met and socialized even worked with all these amazing artists that inspire me everyday and get to express myself through this platform. It’s something I’ve been doing for only 3 months and is very therapeutic. I’m also very happy to see how motivated and powerful this community is, which only makes me want to be part of it even more and make something good out of it. It is what keeps me going and if I manage to influence and inspire even one person only, I will be forever happy.

This is my addition to the I Stand For Peace challenge created by Good Cross. It’s just one picture and will only take you a few minutes. I’m looking forward to seeing each and every one of them in the group.

Thank you for taking the time to read this (if you’ve made it this far) and for bearing with my English. Greeks are famous for their noses and loud voices, not their fluency in foreign languages. Hehe.

Be good everyone.

Mood

“Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway”

Sometimes all it takes to totally change your mood is a sexy outfit, some makeup, nice shoes and you feel like you’re ready to take on the world.   That’s exactly how I felt this weekend when I put on this gorgeous and very sexy dress by the awesome store #bubbles, it made me want to pour a glass of wine and go dancing, happy to say I refrained lol this time anyway.   Happy Monday Everyone. ♥

The Break-up

“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are…”

This project was obviously inspired by JAPS pose named “We need to talk”. Everyone knows that when you hear that phrase, something’s wrong.

Now I’m not sure if I succeeded in this one, as seeing it now, I can’t tell for sure if I’m breaking up with Brad or he is with me.

By the way, you remember the wonderful Brad, right? I’m sorry ladies, I’m hiding his handsome face but you can have a clear look at him here.

So, I’d like to dedicate this to all heartbroken sweethearts out there and my message to them would be: everything happens for a reason and sometimes I takes a while but happiness does come. So pick yourselves up from the floor, wipe your eyes and open them wide as your other half might be standing right in front of you.

Be good everyone.

Anesis

“Being comfortable with someone is one of the best feelings you can have”

Anesis is greek for comfortable.

Comfortable were these pillows EvoLove releases today at the new round of Liaison Collaborative. In the package you will find two sets of pillows (cool and warm) with a hud of 3 sitting poses already on them. Apart from these, you will also find 3 static poses, which we all know EvoLove is a master on.

Comfortable has also made me feel the designer of them June Fallon. Apart from an incredible photographer and amazing blogger, she’s a designer, she’s a stylist for events and she’s now my friend. I believe our 2 hours-long conversation last night sealed that deal! How can she do it all? Don’t ask me! I did ask her that myself and her response was LOL. So I think that answers my question, ha ha!

So, good morning everybody and I enjoy your day shopping or posing or whatever it is you’re up to. Be good!
