Cyanna and I recently threw a little penguin party and it was an absolutely blast. We dressed up in our coziest winter attire and jammed out to some classic South Pole tuneage. Yokai released this set of penguins as a gacha at The Project Se7en, and they are absolutely adorable. Continue reading

It is the last day of 2016 and I would like to thank you all for your support and love throughout this year. It has been an incredible year and I have seen my blog and following grow beyond my own expectation. This is something I am not only surprised about, but also something I am incredibly grateful for. I have also learned so much in regards to photography this year and have started to enjoy and appreciate the subject more and more. Besides that, I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the most amazing people this year and feel so blessed to be able to call them my friends. Thank you for making my year a lot brighter and fun!

Thank you all for everything, I wish you a super, awesome, splendid, amazing 2017!

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.

Give yourself time to heal

oIL0R.jpg

Happy new week! It is the last full week of 2016, how bizarre is that? The year has once again truly flown by and it felt like an overall whirlwind. Though I don’t want to spill too many words regarding 2016 (I’ll save that for a later post), it is undeniable that it is becoming more and more tempting by the day to do so. The realization that it is almost 2017 is something indescribable and provokes so many emotions within me, most of which are incredibly contradicting and it simply won’t leave my mind.

oDoY8.jpg

There was one lesson I learned this year that I deemed important enough to write a seperate blog post about; give yourself time to heal. It is not the most quoteable life lesson, nor is it the most memorable but exactly that makes it so important. It is such a forgettable lesson, one that I have admittedly forgotten quite often as well but it is so incredibly important and I can’t stress that enough. My year has been full of rough patches (image), after which I never gave myself the time to relax and simply heal. I admittedly did have long periods of unproductivity but the stress always remained. In the end, I had never actually given myself a chance to rest and rejuvinate at all.

It is okay to feel sad, all of us do sometimes; especially during this cold and blue season. It is important to let yourself be sad for a bit and not beat yourself up about it. But after that, you should not forget to give yourself time to pull it back together before delving back into your everyday routine. What I am trying to say is that recovery takes time and that there is absolutely nothing wrong about it.

“I will be your home
Keep you warm when it’s cold
I will try to be what you need when you’re low
I can only promise the girl that I am
I’ll do anything that I can
Meet me on the road to recovery”
– Broods, Recovery

Since it is the season of spooks and creeps, my dear friend Exis and I decided to dress up as vampires and visit a totally safe and not frightening graveyard in an attempt of finding a quick midnight snack. We were both very well aware of the important table rule; do not play with your food, but we simply couldn’t resist…

In all seriousness, I would like to thank Exis for inviting me to this vampy photoshoot. I had a wonderfully spooky time ♥

Anything bare that is made of gold

“I might as well be in a garden
I said, ah
A smell in the air is a dripping rose
(You could be the one for me)
Another soul to meet my void then
Of anything bare that’s made of gold

A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
Cause all that remains before it’s begun”
– Chet Faker, Gold
