Red sakura

Flower symbolism is yet another aspect that makes life so utterly romantic and precious. The Japanese Sakura, which you likely know as the cherry blossom, symbolizes how life is short yet beautiful. This is due to the fact that cherry blossoms only live for a couple of days before they fall off their trees, though they are undeniably beautiful during this short lifetime. 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!

Give yourself time to heal

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.

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

Hartendief

It’s been a while since my last blog post and as much as I would like to share all of the exciting adventures that have taken place within my last post and now, there are unfortunately none to share. My days were actually filled with books and theories. That’s right, I have been studying all day and night! Or atleast until I fall asleep which happens quite early these days. I usually headdesk just before midnight.

Back to slightly more cheerful subjects: Second Life! Wicca Merlin, the designer behind one of my favorite fashion stores on the grid, Wicca’s Wardobe, had created this wonderful exclusive for We ❤ RP in May. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to post about the dress during the event period but despite that, I still wanted to show it. I love the build and details of this dress and the color options are fantastic too! My headband is also from Wicca’s Wardrobe and is part of the Cathbad set which was previously available at The Secret Affair. (I’m so late, I know. Eek!)

On another note, the 2016 RFL Castle, Home & Garden Contest is closing tomorrow so this is your last chance to grab the event exclusives. The (unisex) boots I’m wearing are by Noble Creations. They are also a RFL item, meaning that the profit of these boots will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Today’s inspiration was taken from the Dutch word “hartendief” which literally means “thief of hearts” but it is most often used as a pet name for your loved one such as “honey” or “sweetheart” in English. However, for my vision I wanted to create an image of stealth, perhaps with a hint of inspiration from the video games Thief and Assassins Creed, combined with an image of innocence and romance. It is a twisted contrast, truly but then again, I have never claimed to be normal.

“I’m gonna marry the dark
Gonna make love to the stark
I’m a soldier to my own emptiness
I am a winner”
– Lady GaGa, Marry The Night

I’ve linked the acoustic version of the song since it always give me chills whenever I hear it. You can find the original song here.
