Shine on It

1.11.15.1

Another Monday and I am worn out. Weekends do take it out of you if you do more than just laying around the house. I haven’t done a weekly reflection in a while so I thought I would do one for now. Things in RL as settling down a little bit and this morning I got an unexpected call that pretty much made all the bad this past week turn to good in a matter of a few minutes. I won’t go into crazy boring details about my RL, but this was much needed and was cause for this past week being not so great. The stress of everything does seem to catch up. I come to SL to relax and get away from the stress so to my surprise I seem to log in to even more in world than in RL. I had to just push all of that away this week and try to send out positive energy to the people I can about. My RL is nothing like some peoples, so I do not know how they can deal with it sometimes. Stronger than I am for sure! I have also began blogging this past week… just for me! I have a few sponsors who I still love and adore and wouldn’t want to part with ever, but mostly I am sponsor free now and the feeling of being able to blog what I want and when I want is so lovely. I do not feel I have to be online to blog all the time and it really allows me to enjoy SL now. I will be focusing on doing things a tad different to come this week. I am going to pledge to do Berry’s monday memes from now on and will probably be posting those on Wednesdays. I also want people to know that I am a real person with real issues… I am not a person who is peachy all the time and I think it’s ok not to be, so for this reason I will continue with my dirty little secrets posts to come. Sharing a little more about myself that you may not know and hopefully this will help everyone to open up about the real person they are instead of a shield that people put up in this type of world. Anyway… more to come as always and have a fabulous week! TOOTLES

P.S. Found a new fabulous hair store that is opening up a store in the next few days… Am wearing the hair below and I LOVE the textures. There are 3 hairs available at The Seasons Story right now and I had to get all 3. Check it out!

Come Take a Ride

9.21.14.1

It is Tuesday and of course this means my weekly reflection and Hello Tuesday items. This would only be my second weekly reflection that I have posted, but I have them every week and just never thought to write it out as such. I was asked this past week by a friend why I choose to do my reflections on Tuesday and that it really should be on a Friday at the end of a week. When did a week end on Friday? Maybe the work week, but a bloggers work is never done and my weeks end on Sundays personally. I then think about everything on Monday and write about it on Tuesdays, which is what you see here. This past week has been kind of crazy. My RL college work has picked up and the next 3 weeks are going to be crazy. I will refrain from killing you on the details in the next few weeks. In SL, things have been busy. Penumbra AW14 wrapped up, but you can still go and pick up items in world at the sim if you choose to. I have also been sitting back and observing some very disturbing behavior between people who I would have never expected. I also saw some comments of people trying to diffuse situations and calm things and honestly put things into perspective. I wanted to share the little bit that I took from it all…. and maybe this might help someone who reads this. Second Life is a game. Yes, there are real feelings behind actions, but in the end, you can turn off the computer and go do what you need to in Real Life. What happens in SL more than likely will not affect what happens to you in RL, and if you let others opinions of you affect your RL then you need a reality check. What someones opinion of you is in SL does NOT matter in the grand scale of things. I am not saying that you shouldn’t be hurt by things that happen in a virtual world, because I myself have been hurt pretty badly no matter how much I tell myself that opinions don’t matter. It is just one more step in the process of living with your SL in a healthy way instead of letting it consume and take over who you are in RL.

Now on to the clothing…. For Hello Tuesday this week I am wearing the Fiore Suspender full outfit by Hilly Haalan. The only thing not in this photo is an adorable clutch that comes with the outfit, but I am not one for purses in either life. This outfit is a great fit and made so well. Every detail is there and really makes the outfit to me. The pose I am using is from the Tasha pose pack also available by Verocity at Hello Tuesday. Also, Truth has some new hair out!!! I am wearing the new Shae hairstyle which is basically a messy braid… but so freaking adorable! I like the lose braids like this more I think. Personal choice 🙂 Have a great rest of your week and happy shopping! TOOTLES
