March has partly been such a spindrift for me since it was also the premier month for my new event: Cutie Loot. I have had so much fun working on this project and was so happy to hear the incredible feedback from all the cuties that had ordered the box. Continue reading

Collaborating and Celebrating

After almost a month of insane excitement and intense projects, I finally had the time to get together with some of my beloved friends and practice what we love most: photography; usually with a lot of banter and memory making included. I am happy to present my first collaboration of March, featuring the incredibly lovely Cyanna Starsmith. This first collaboration is actually primarily focused around the biggest collaboration of the entirety of Second Life, Collabor88. Continue reading

Season of sparkles

In all fairness, there is always an excuse for sparkles no matter the season. However, winter is undoubtedly the most sparkliest season of all. Its Christmas lights and their reflection against the white snow are almost magical. Naturally, I had to capture the enchanting spark of winter myself, even if it was only through a virtual snapshot.

Entice

Entice has been releasing more original meshes as of late and recently released the original mesh Smack That lingerie set. It comes in many different colours and includes an extensive HUD which makes the set incredibly customizable. You can find this set at the Entice mainstore.

The Liaison Collaborative

The Liaison Collaborative’s theme for December is Once Upon A Winter Solstice and it revolves around the enchanted and wonderful aspects of winter. TLC opened on December 7th and will run till December 30th.

The White Christmas gacha set by 22769 ~ [bauwerk] includes a bunch of cute knickknacks to decorate your rooms with during the holiday season. The machine is 50L$ per play and includes one rare. I also wanted to mention the bed and breakfast bench by DRD. It is absolutely dazzling. It looks incredibly charming and dreamy and I especially love the little fairy lights. What can I say, sparkles and fairy lights are simply my weakness.

Great fear of shallow living

Great fear of shallow living
Click to enlarge

Living life to the fullest, it’s something most of us wish to do, though it is hard to paint a picture of how this life is supposed to look like. Perhaps that is because “living life to the fullest” differs for all of us. Some find happiness in lifelong commitments, whereas others prefer to continuously rotate their lifestyle. Whilst some find satisfaction in a life spent with their beloved family in the suburbs, some strive for more.

Personally, I have not been able to make up my mind as to which life I desire to live. I enjoy chasing my dreams, big or small. I fear of it taking its toll on me though. Adventurous living and dream chasing can become quite exhausting, and perhaps, quite lonely too. Despite the fears, the presence of this wanderlust filled adventurer inside me is not to be silenced. How I wish to see the depths of the oceans through my own scuba mask, or feel the raindrops fall from Amazonian jungle leaves gently roll down my arm.

But there’s a part of me that has great wishes of lifelong romances and the perfectly average family life. Picking up kids after soccer practice or ballet classes. A lifestyle complimented by family dinners and movie nights. Even waving the youngsters goodbye as they go off to start their very own life, how heartbreaking it may be, is part of this contrary desire. But of course, here as well, lies angst and fear. Fear of living a dull life, growing weary of the routines and ordinariness of it all.

These fears are insignificant compared to my great fear of shallow living. Truth be told, I’d much rather follow either of the lifestyles above and put up with its unfavorable consequences, than to live a life in which I feel as if I’m not living at all. Delving into the beauty of either of these lifestyles would (partly) compensate for its unfavorable consequences anyway.

To conclude, remember to always be grateful for what you already have. Because sometimes it might feel as if we live a shallow life, as if life as a whole is simply meaningless. Well, my dear reader, this is up to you to change. Often times this change is only as minor as shifting perspectives, opening your eyes and noticing the slightest changes that cause no day to ever be the same. You will see that life, even in its seemingly most ordinary state, is actually an extraordinary spectacle.

“I must be a mermaid
I have no fear of depths
and a great fear of shallow living”
– Anaïs Nin

Mama Said

Tres Chic Blogger Search - Kawaiilian

Today is the last day you can participate in the Tres Chic Blogger Search. I had to search through my inventory for a bit but I found a stool from unKindness and a pair of shorts from Entice to use for my participation. And to hype you all up for the upcoming round of Tres Chic: the bench and rug are from CHEZ MOI and will be available at the new round of Tres Chic in two days. Here’s a raw shot of the scene:

Mama Said_001

Today is also the last day of The Garage Fair. Since it’s the last day, I will attach the landmark to the mainstores too so you’ll be able to find the items after the event closes.

My songspiration for today is Mama Said by The Shirelles. I remember when my own mama used to play this every morning. She was a huge fan of 60’s music and now, so am I.
I’m a bit too late for Mothersday but I still wanna say it; thank you, mama!
