Break Time…

The past few months for me have been intense in my Virtual life, blogging almost daily for a few months now, aswell as some personal journeys I have taken and it is time for me to take some well-earned and much needed time off, only a week so I can focus on things that have fallen by the way side, like the horrific mess my inventory has become of late (I can imagine Exis laughing at that fact), and for someone who is very ocd about being organised this becomes overwhelming lol.

Time to decorate my new house I’ve had for a couple of weeks yet not finished and time to chill out and have some fun, explore all the wonderful sims and go through tutorials in order for me to grow and learn more for my photography.

To say I am excited at the prospect is an understatement lol I am not disappearing, I will still be posting pictures and be around on Flickr etc as I experiment with new ideas etc I just will not be blogging the same way this next week.  You will however still have the amazing pictures and blogs of my partner in crime Exis so no worries there.

Have a great Saturday everyone ♥

TGIF.. who is ready for the weekend?

Woot Friday has finally arrived, how can a week go so quick yet feel like it’s been so long lol.  I am so ready for the weekend, I may even participate in a glass of wine or two.   Been a good week for me, sometimes I’ve felt a little like I don’t know if I am coming or going but not in such a bad way lol busy times are good ones.

It’s been a beautiful day here in the UK, sun was out for a change and I am in a great mood, got to shop with my bestie Exis this morning we love Fridays even more when we get to run around like Crazy women for FLF Friday lol.

Today’s post was also a lot of fun to create, not only did I get to dress up in the sexy lingerie by Birdy which is gacha at The Arcade but I got to also blog some of my recent purchases of Décor by the talented designers Body Language, Tarte and Zen Creations.

Happy Friday everyone ♥

Autumn Leaves…

I really love all the new pictures fellow photographers and bloggers are taking of the gorgeous new Autumn décor and Sims that are now out to see and explore.   I love Autumn colours and I am truly excited to begin exploring all the wonderful sights we have to see in SL.

Today I started with the gorgeous Elysion sim which is looking so beautiful with its autumn décor, colours, leaves, it even has an orchard which I plan to go back to later, so much to see, so little time to do it in lol but I highly recommend a visit, even if you’re not a photographer and just enjoy beautiful sims to explore I challenge anyone not to love this one as much I did.

Have a great evening everyone ♥

End of Summer…

The end of summer has definitely come and gone, well actually I’m not even sure it arrived properly for me but well it’s nothing new.  The cooler days are coming and already the nights are darker earlier.

To be honest whilst I do love summer once it arrives, I am also very much a lover of Autumn and winter too and I am looking forward to those not only in RL with cosy nights, in cosy comfy clothes, hot chocolate and fires, but also in SL with all the amazing clothes I can’t wait to see wear.

But for today I have chosen a wonderful summery outfit to end my summer with gorgeous little dress by L.c. Clothing and available at Pose Lover & Friends, and if like me you love to buy and use poses, check out this sexy little pose by XXY called Flirty girl also available at the Pose Lover & Friends Event.

Happy Monday everyone ♥

Friends will always be there…

I am thankful to be able to say I have some really good loyal friends in my life, I am not a collector of friends to be honest, I would sooner have a small amount of good, loyal, honest friends I can devote my time to than reams of friends I cannot keep up with.

True friends are revealed through hard times and that’s been true in my experiences so I hold tight to my true friends, I give my love, loyalty, support back to each one and will always be there when I am needed no matter what is going on in my own life.

Today’s post was done with one of those friends, he’s been a really good friend for a number of years now and is always there on good days and bad and I couldn’t ask for a better or more loyal, supportive friend, so a huge hug and thank you to Daniel for not only helping me with today’s pose but for being such an awesome friend.

Sound of Silence…

I am beginning to enjoy the sound of silence as I rebuild myself from some recent events in my life, and it really isn’t a bad thing as a good friend pointed out to me recently.  Time to enjoy my own company once more.  Time to focus on myself even if that sounds somewhat selfish, and also time to focus on my photography.

Even making new friendships along the way, as I cross paths with new people on my explorations of our virtual worlds.  I love exploring the wonderful sims of SL whilst listening to music and losing myself to the beauty of others creations, one song that I do keep playing is what brought me to the title of today’s post “The Sound of Silence by Disturbed” awesome song if you care to check it out.

I explored the Netherwood sim today which is pretty amazing and with the gorgeous dress by Villena I bought recently at Uber and the pose by Serendipity found at Pose Lover & Friends my mood was set for my next picture.

Have a great day everybody ♥

Life is too short to wait…

Life is too short to wait, how true this is, life is to be embraced and lived to the fullest and that’s just what I always try to do.

I would just like to mention in today’s post one of my favourite sponsors #bubbles, not only does she make such love cute designs, this designer Candi truly cares about her customers and what they would like to see, I love that.

Her store is still fairly new but she’s already growing each day and has just recently started to do fatpacks of her designs one of which I am wearing today, it’s such a cute dress that comes in 8 colours, so check her store out, you won’t be disappointed I know I never am.

And what better way to showcase such a cute dress than the amazing pose by Luanes World available at the Pose Lover & Friends Event.

Happy Monday everyone ♥

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.
