Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier and simpler.
Just a side note to though out there… sometimes we hide things about ourselves in the shadows so others do not seem them. We want to make everything look and seem pretty on the outside and keep other things quiet that aren’t so beautiful. SL of course is the perfect place to do this. Why not be the picture perfect person? I seem clean cut and have the cute dress on but on the inside I am tattooed up with emotions and things that most would never understand. I am just me…
I think all of us have known someone who has passed away due to cancer. It is because of this that I relay. I relay for every person that has been lost to such a horrible disease and mostly I relay for my uncle who passed away with lung cancer. I would walk forever in these heels if it would raise awareness and funding to stop this disease from taking so many of our loved ones. We all participate in the Relay for Life event called Fashion For Life because just a small shopping spree can make a difference!
I sit here and see all the crap going on around us that really means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Who is a better blogger or who is a better photographer.. why do I not get picked over this person or why are my photos not good enough for this place. I am not a good enough model to do this anymore or that somehow their views or how they want to look doesn’t fit someones opinion. Look at these small things… and yes they are small! I myself have complained because I didn’t get some designer I wanted or my photo wasn’t chosen in something. The last few months things have really started to settle into perspective. I have had to think about what mattered. My RL of course comes first, but that doesn’t mean that we still don’t complain about the things that don’t go right in the second one. I mean this is the place where we should be able to make things go the way we choose, right? I guess when you think about the reason we relay and then the SL problems…. it kind of helps you see that these things are so foolish and childish. Continuing to cry over things that really ultimately don’t matter…. who needs that? NOT THIS GIRL! soooo… TOOTLES
I think the only thing I end up saying over and over again on my blog is that I am sorry I have been busy in RL and not able to post so much. This is most certainly true; however, what I really feel like saying is sorry I can’t post because I am still searching for inspiration. I don’t know if you have this happen or not but you find an outfit that you really like and you want to have the perfect place to wear it or you want to make the photograph perfect and you just sit on the outfit.. you wait for a while because if you rush or slap something together then its not going to really have the feel that you are looking for. I was having this kind of moment with the SlackGirl Kahlo Glam outfit. This is a complete high fashion finished product. The only thing you need to add are slink high feet for the shoes and hair because everything else is included. I find these types of complete outfits easier to just throw on and wear but harder to photograph because the designer had a specific look they wanted when they create the full outfit. Maybe it is the nerves to make it right? No idea! I do know that I have been sitting on this outfit since I got it at the INOVARE FashionArt event. This event will be ending very soon so I felt the pressure adding on to get it done… but… what to do? I also received an LM for Everwinter last week some time. It is a Post Apocalyptic theme park which has some awesome details to it. I wanted something dark and edgy like the dress and when I went there I hit BINGO right away. I had some fun in SL exploring and got a photo to go with it! I would suggest heading to the FashionArt even before its too late if you haven’t already gotten a chance. TOOTLES!
I scanned their trinkets curious — I grasped — I bore away –
What will the solemn Hemlock –
What will the Oak tree say?
I absolutely love fantasy poetry and this photo made me think of this poem that I had studied in college. Emily Dickinson is a very famous name which most will know so why not pair that with a famous SL name like FINESMITH? I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I did to create it. TOOTLES
Are you feeling a little dangerous? Like you may have to defend or fight your way out of a situation? I am tired.. .sick and tired would be a better saying for this. Sometimes I want to scream at the complete disregard for my feelings. I am speaking about real life at this time, but really this could go for anyone and anything. When you feel disrespected you just want to fight to get that self respect back. I was hoping maybe dressing like a complete badass would help. This outfit by Dead Dollz is certainly doing this for me. You can find it at the new Secret Affair on the 15th. It comes in many colors and they are only L$150 each. That’s a pretty large deal I think. So while I go fight off some zombies and relieve some stress, you can go shopping :) TOOTLES
I have been extremely busy in real life, but I wanted to take a chance to let you know a few things. First off, The Skin Fair begins tomorrow. I have already shown you a beautiful Tess skin by Belleza in my previous post, but now I want to show you Doretta. I am absolutely in love with this skin from Pink Acid. There are very few TMP mesh head appliers that I actually like, but this one has become the top of my list. This skin is available in five different shades. The next big thing to know is that Soonsiki has moved and now has a new fatpack out as a group gift. The hair above is called Diamond and I love the wave. My hair does this naturally when its humid so I just had to grab it. Last but certainly not least, Designer Showcase is still going on for the month of March. I haven’t really been around to blog for this event at the beginning of the month. Some cute stuff this round that needs to be seen. Great prices as well! I think that is all for now so enjoy :) TOOTLES
Skin: Pink Acid- Doretta in Butterscotch @ The Skin Fair (begins March 13th)
