In the white countenance confession

“Even as our cloudy fancies take suddenly shape in some divine expression,
Even as the troubled heart doth make in the white countenance confession,
The troubled sky reveals The grief it feels…”

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.

When the evening star is rising

“When the evening star is rising and the shadows gather ’round…”

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.

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.

Good morning peeps! I wasn’t going to post anything today as I need to catch up on my pictures but Blogotex made me. If you’re suffering from OCD, like me, Blogotex surely can’t be fun for you either. Especially those notecards reminding you how much time you have left. Gosh! I’m pretty sure Blogotex will be the reason why I will quit blogging one day. But not just yet!

Anyways, today’s forced post, features new stuff from Fancy Decor, Unkindness, [keke] and Thor! Have a look below for all the details and have fun shopping!

Which means, baths of forests. And no, I don’t speak Italian but I know how to use google translate!

Good morning folks! It’s Friday, are you all as excited as I am? I’m working tomorrow again and starting next week, I will be working from 10am until 10pm which is going to be a challenge, working and keeping up with my blog at the same time, but I’ll figure something out. And that should never be a reason to not enjoy a Friday!

So, today I’m showing you the newest release of Concept – and not a gacha one this time. You can find it at Shiny Shabby, it’s called Nude and consists of a bath, a candles tray and of course, candles. There’s also a wooden platform/floor in the set but I didn’t use that as I got to use the amazing stone stairs Studio Skye has created.

I had never considered the idea of bathing outside before and to be honest…now that I have, I still don’t think that I would do it. No offense to all of you daredevils out there but…some snakes can swim! It’s all I’m saying!

Good morning folks! Now that is quite a title, right? And I thought of it all by myself. Hmm, ok I did not, but hey, I could have…I do believe I would make a great author. It would be a mess though as I can’t really seem to organize my thoughts well and I’m sure there’s a disorder for that condition but I choose to not look under that rock. Also, my books would be in Greek so you wouldn’t be able to read them anyways.

Today’s post is a fun post. Those are the kind of posts I promised myself I would make when time permits, where I would get to use stuff that are either new or old, sponsored or not but definitely personal favorites. And that’s the case today.

Summer is gone

Good morning world. Is it me or was this a super short weekend? And this seems to be the case every weekend I have to go to work. Anyways I woke up early this morning but my mind is still sleeping and coffee hasn’t been effective yet, so I won’t be rambling much today.

My post is featuring the new stuff THOR made for PocketGacha event. The event runs through October 14th, so you still have a couple of weeks to win them. Also, in case you don’t know already, PocketGacha gives you the opportunity to buy the whole set instead of trying your luck with gacha. But you have to use tokens to do so. You can buy tokens at the PocketGacha mainstore (check credits below for landmark) – it’s 1 token for 1L$. After this round is over, most of the stores participating will make their creations gacha-only so you will no longer have the “buy full set” option.

You can tell I’m still sleeping from the syntax in the previous paragraph, no?
