It has been a while since I have written about anything regarding my real life. Frankly, there wasn’t much to write about. However, I recently felt the need to update my blog to let you all know what is going on and why I haven’t been posting much. I’m making it sound quite dramatic but no worries, I haven’t given into any psychopathic tendencies just yet. I am actually spending the majority of my day working on school work. My school year is coming close to its end, though I am still quite behind with my work. Therefore, I need to spend as much time as possible to try and catch up in an effort to finish my year kind of successfully. This unfortunately means that I won’t have as much time to do the things I love to do, including blogging. Continue reading

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.

The third Annual Castle, Home & Garden Contest by Relay for Life has just opened. It’s a wonderful event that features great builds from various creative residents and furthermore also helps to raise money for the American Cancer Society. If you’d like to know more about the event, I recommend you take a look at their website and visit the event yourself. I will also leave a link to the RFL website if you would like to know more about the organazation and their other upcoming events.

There are 10 sims in total this year. Each one has a completely unique theme which all of my fellow fantasy lovers will swoon over. Whilst walking from sim to sim, you will travel from Disneyland to The Shire and then you can suddenly find yourself in Narnia! It’s an experience you truly can’t miss.

Before diving into this marvelous adventure, I recommend you take a look at these following pages:

  • Themes
    On this page you can find a list of the different themes. There is also a small summary of each theme.
  • Layout
    This is a map of all of the different sims. You will also be able to see which merchants are located on which sim.

And if you get lost, take a look at:

  • What is it?
    If you find yourself lost or confused, perhaps this page can lighten things up for you.

As I mentioned above, there are several magical themes. These range from Disneyland to Narnia, to J.K. Rowling. Both Park Place and The Pumpkin Head have created Harry Potter themed items for the event. You can find both of these merchants on the Godric’s Hallow sim which, according to the website, is “an English village with some notable residents in the magical community. Including, at one time, a young Harry Potter”.

According to this Buzzfeed test I belong to the Hufflepuff household, so I picked up this wonderful dress from The Little Bat to fully embrace my inner Hufflepuff! Unfortunately I, as a new student at Hogwarts, got lost and ended up in the Gryffindor tower! I have to admit that it was rather stunning there but I could not stay for very long. After capturing the moment to cherish as a sweet memory, I ran out to find the Hufflepuff basement ASAP!

And so the Faire has already come to its end. Two weeks of dreams, hopes and all of the fantasy goodies you can imagine. I was unfortunately not able to post as much as I wish I could have due to that pesky (and hectic) little real life of mine but I hope that all of you did have an amazing time at the Faire this year. Remember that the event won’t be closed and cleaned until Linden Labs decides to do so, so we might have a few extra days to say our goodbyes.

Caitlin Tobias made a video showing off this years Fantasy Faire. You can watch it on YouTube.

Now it’s time for me to say farewell to the Fairelands. Thank you for everything and until next year!

Lucentia is one of the 14 Fantasy Faire sims this year. I believe it’s meant to look like a medieval harbour city but don’t quote me on that one. Remember that the Fantasy Faire is ending tomorrow so if you haven’t looked around yet I’d recommend you do that as soon as possible. You can find more details about Lucentia and the other Fantasy Faire sims here.
