CATWA Amy Head

Amy was the first doll head released by Catwa during June. Amy is absolutely adorable and lovely and besides her dolly look, she can also be worn more casually with the right appliers. In today’s vlog I will be showing most of Amy’s animation HUD options as well as her look with several different, but equally incredible, appliers.

Leave Me Lonely

Leave me lonely

Earlier today I said I would write a post regarding my current situation and status and I honestly did wanted to do that asap so here it is:

To put it simple, I have been feeling very overwhelmed as well in real life as on Second Life. I may have addressed this feeling before. The feeling that my Second Life is absolutely splendid and everything seems so wonderful  but it can easily shift to being overwhelming and stressful. These feelings are so perfectly described in the song FML by K. Flay. That song is basically my Second Life autobiography. I feel so blessed for all of the opportunities and love I receive on the grid and I am truly so thankful to be surrounded by the amazing residents who I so happily call my friends, but sometimes it all becomes a bit much. I have been feeling so stressed at certain times and there is a constant presence of guilt and insecurities that poisons my mind. The problem does not lie within these incredible phenomenons that have occured within my life on the grid. Truly this problem lays within the feeling that I don’t work hard enough or show enough passion and dedication. The problems lays within the feeling that I am not good enough, which is an insecurity I have addressed in a previous post.

As for my real life, I would rather not get into details about it but I, once again, feel very overwhelmed by the current situations. Though for my real life, most feelings are tilted towards the negative side of things. It feels as if I’m drowning in a mixed drink and all of its ingredients originate from the things that have recently took a turn for the worse in my life. This ranges from work/school to love and relationships. It’s a toxic drink of which I would not recommend anyone to take a sip off, have some strawberry soda or lemonade instead! (I’m totally craving for that now)

Altogether, I’ve been feeling rather dazed and overwhelmed by everything that is surrounding me and I hope that you will all accept my sincere apology for not being my usual self. I hope all of this rambling and emotional blabbing won’t scare you off too much. I will get back to being all bubbly and quirky Chloë-ish when time allows, you are not the only one who wishes to see that girl again, I miss her too. Though she does come to visit from time to time and you can rest assure that if I do show any sign of happiness or attempt at radiating positive vibes that it is all genuine. I will never be anything but honest towards you as well as towards myself. So, once more, thank you so much for all of your patience and kindness. It truly means a lot to me during these kind of times and I will never be anything but grateful for that ♥

“Is it love when so easily said goodbye?
Is it love when we’ve given up before we tried?
Is it love when you stole my peace of mind?
Is it love when you cry, and cry, and cry?”

“You’re a dangerous love
Baby, you’re no good for me, darling
‘Cause if you’re gonna love me and leave me hanging here
Then I’d rather you leave me lonely
Even though it hurts
You’re a dangerous love”
– Ariana Grande, Leave Me Lonely

Let’s Get Lost

Let´s Get Lost
Click to enlarge

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my feelings on my blog or vlog. I always felt like that was a sort of no-go, as if all of my unnecessary problems created by overthinking and insecurities would scare people away from me. They probably would, to be fair, but today I’m going to address them anyway and try to get to the core of this lingering issue.

Insecurities, we all have them; big or small. I feel as if many (or perhaps just some) bloggers deal with them on a daily basis. Personally, I always have a little voice in the back of my mind asking all of these supposedly unnecessary questions about my blog and vlog: “Do people even like my vlogs?”, “Do people even like me?”, “Am I blogging enough?”, “Are my blog posts good enough?”, “Are my pictures good enough?”, “Am I good enough?” and it wasn’t until recently that I have been trying to let all of those insecurities and questions go. It all started with the change from Reckless Glamour to Dreams in Motion. I had decided that from that point on I would only do things that I love and that made me happy. I am not fully satisfied with my blog or vlog (posts) yet and to be honest, knowing myself, I don’t think I ever will be. I have learned so much throughout my blogging/vlogging journey and I do have a feeling that I am progressing and getting better, but I will never reach the state of perfection that I wish to reach. Honestly though, do I even want to reach that point? I’m still having that moral discussion with myself sometimes since, in all honesty, I do think that living in the state of perfection would get rather boring after a while because you will have nothing to learn or to progress in. I think I’d rather live in an eternal learning curve, despite the insecurities and having to deal with the somewhat cruel thoughts that occasionally shoot through my mind.

Though those agonizing thoughts still haunt me from time to time and I sometimes still feel lost in a sea of insecurities, I will try to cross it to reach the lands of happiness and positivity. Let me know if you’d like to cross these waters together so we can have ourselves a wonderful nautical adventure and perhaps find a merry little land filled with wonders and treasures to get lost upon, shall we?

Speaking of land filled with wonders and treasures, I went on an adventure to The Trace and it was such a wonderful experience. The Trace is filled with lots of loveliness, it’s a very serene and peaceful place and definitely has a Sunday afternoon-vibe to it. I wore this lovely blouse and skirt from Cosmic Dust which is currently available at Kustom9 and matched it with one of my favorite pair of boots from Entice.

“Act like tomorrow just doesn’t exist
Time isn’t real, ain’t nothing on my wrist
Let go of everything, then you have bliss”
