Cold days and warm hearts

Hello hello! Is everyone having a great weekend? I’m about to leave and go to the movies. I’ll finally watch the new Star Wars movie! So, I don’t have a lot of time for rambling. Plus, it’s Sunday. I’m not supposed to ramble.

Today’s post is a collaboration with the wonderful AJ Arabello. Apart from a great blogger/photographer, he’s super cute, sweet and great to work with. Thank you for posing with me AJ!

Have a look below for all the necessary details and you can click here to have a look at AJ’s blog in case you’re interested in what he’s wearing as well.

Good morning and happy Monday! Ok, seriously, every time I use happy and Monday in the same sentence, I sigh. Those two don’t make sense together. Anyways, we’re getting closer to Christmas so the mood is getting better. Not because I love Christmas that much, no. Because I’ll get to have some days off from work. Have you made your plans yet? I haven’t even started decorating ! One problem at a time though.

Today’s post features a bunch of new stuff from Tannenbaum and The Arcade. I mentioned yesterday all the important information you need to know about The Arcade, it opened last week and will stay open until the 31st. But, Tannenbaum will end on the 25th. So plan your shopping spree accordingly. You have to look at the credits below for every item used, it’s a long list, I know, sorry! Enjoy your shopping!

Happiest goodbyes

Hello hello! I’m very, very happy to say goodbye to November, Finally! I don’t know about you, but the past couple of months had been the busiest months of my life. Ever. RL and SL. I feel exhausted, I feel worn out, I feel burnt out (ok, was I dramatic enough?) and I was definitely looking forward to December arriving – not because it will be less busy necessarily, but come on! It just has to! And today I’m living the dream! “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” and it is true! It’s still early to celebrate but I did wake up with a smile on my face today. Hope you as well!

Today’s post features more stuff from District 20. It’s a brand new monthly event which I blogged about here but in case you’re lazy like me and unwilling to go back to an older post of mine, here‘s their website with everything you need to know about it.

Hello world! I’m giving you a sense of Canada today, as promised! It’s still too warm in Athens to inspire me enough to make a winter picture, but I should start getting ready as we’re really close to Christmas. I won’t even mention how fast time flies. But I just did.

Today’s post features more stuff from the current round of 6 Republic, so I should have convinced you by now to stop by and have a look.

Hello hello! Everyone had a great weekend? Did you also have to work, like I did? If so, hit me up and we can bitch about to each other later.

I’m taking you to Japan again today (or at least what I think Japan looks like) using the new releases from Thor and Tableau Vivant at the brand new round of 6 Republic. Both are gacha, so good luck! Also, in case you’ve forgotten, the theme of the round is Tokyo vs Canada and since this is my second post about Japan, I’m going to make a Canada one next. So, stay tuned! You can get all the information necessary about the event in my previous post, here.

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.
