“All my heart, it breaks every step that I take
But I’m hoping that the gates,
They’ll tell me that you’re mine

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die”
– Lana del Rey, Born to Die

Welcome to a new chapter!

As most people, I easily grow weary of elements in my life that turn out to be less rewarding or amusing as they used to be, especially when stumbled upon an ardent love for something new. The subsequently unsatisfying and worrisome feeling had filled my own blogger heart for a while, thus I decided it was time for something new and refreshing.

So I finally purchased the domain that I have been wanting to get ever since I started developing my love for blogging, and started to rebuilt my entire blog. A new theme and updated pages were the pavement for this new road of digital adventures.

The most important updated page is my About page. I have quite changed since I originally wrote that page, which was in February 2016. My changes can absolutely be seen in my content too. It’s fascinating how one can completely change within merely half a year, it’s quite fascinating how one changes and goes through personal growth in general, but I suppose that is a subject I will save for another blog post.

Knowing myself, I will most likely still bring forth slight changes and tweaks to the blog for the upcoming few days and I can assure you there will be much more to come in the future too. I am just way too much of a perfectionist and dynamic spirit to not strive for even further improvements and changes.

For now, I would like to thank you for all of your support and kindness. It warms my heart and most definitely puts a smile on both my real, as well as my pixel, face ☺

Perhaps I’m posting this a bit early but I am dedicating this post to my summer break. I have mentioned it many times but I’m currently rather inactive on Second Life, flickr and all of those wonderful platforms due to being so incredibly busy finishing my final semester at school. Just a lil bit longer until I have no worries for the rest of my days and I can live through the summer with a problem free philosphy.

My inspiration for this post was sparked by the Hakuna Bar from CHEZ MOI, it simply radiates sunny summer and beachy vibes. I’m wearing this lovely swimsuit from R.icielli that you can find at On9 for a few more days and some surfer girl hair from Rezology to match the beachy vibes. The head applier I’m using is from one of my favorite brands, Insol and is currently available at Tres Chic. Finally, I digged through my inventory to find these bracelets from EMO-tions that perfectly finished my bold beach look.

“I’m telling you, kid
This is the great life
No rules, no responsibilities”
And best of all, no worries”

Leave Me Lonely

Leave me lonely
Click to enlarge

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”

It’s A Kind Of Magic!

It´s a kind of magic!
Click to enlarge

This photo has been on my computer for a while now and I have been waiting to blog it for ages. This outfit is just so utterly adorable and magical that I could not keep myself from wanting to post it asap. The magical dress and collar are from Nocciola and it is one of the cutest thing I currently own, I absolutely adore it. I matched it with a magical wand from AsteroidBox and gave my look a finishing royal touch with this crown from Swallow. The hair I’m wearing is a relatively new release from Rezology and it is truly dazzling. Rezology offers a great variety of hairstyles and whatever your preferences are, they are definitely worth checking out. If you do decide to take a picture wearing one of their hairs, make sure you add it to their official flickr group, it’s pretty much a gallery of pure loveliness.

Some of you might remember the show “It’s A Kind Of Magic” which aired on Disney Channel in 2006. I used to love this show, the theme song was just so catchy! It wasn’t until a few months ago that I found out this song was actually created by the legendary group Queen. Some of you might hate or severely dislike me for not knowing that but sorry, I can’t hear the haters above these delightful and magical tunes!

It’s a kind of magic
There can be only one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done
This flame that burns inside of me
I’m hearing secret harmonies
It’s a kind of magic
– Queen, A Kind Of Magic

Let’s Get Lost

Let´s Get Lost

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”

When Spring Comes, We Blossom

Suicide Dollz is still open for 2 more days. This round was absolutely wonderful so check it out before they close off until Sunday for a new and dazzling round. I’m wearing the exclusive from [ abrasive ] and matched it with the magic of roses set by Le Coq D’or which you can find at another lovely event, Gami Gacha.

I took this photo at Chakryn Forest which is a lively forest filled with nature and magic. There are a few picturesque spots there as well as some hangout spots where you can simply chill out and enjoy your surroundings. I had a lot of fun there and I will definitely visit again when I can.

On another note, I received my June Luxe Box today and have been thinking about doing an unboxing video though I feel as if so many people are already (planning on) doing that so I might let that idea subside. I, unfortunately, nearly have time to do video’s at the moment anyway due to school. Perhaps I will do one for the future boxes. Let me know what you want or think!

“We can climb high, higher than before
We could stand by while it burns to the floor
Though we cannot fly
We will build and the wounds will mend
As we build it once again”
– Tristam, Once Again

For any of my readers who are feeling down or blue or as if everything has fallen and broken down, know that one day you will build it once again and when your spring comes, you will blossom. Hang in there ♥

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.
