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

Bellissima

Bellissima

Bellissima is the Italian word for lovely or beautiful. When I heard the word for the first time I automatically thought of Anabelle Marquis and her undeniably lovely blog, Bellessima (clever puns!).

Languages truly are a wonderful phenomenon. Words are merely a mashup of characters with a given meaning, though there is so much depth and beauty to behold within them. Is it not special how we associate traits to languages, how French is seen as romantic and German as coarse. Furthermore there is the development of languages. How one general language, Latin, has branched itself into a variety of unique and beautiful sets of grammar and vocabulary is a wonder that never ceases to amaze me.

“Language tethers us to the world; without it we spin like atoms.”

Snow White

“Once upon a time, in deep winter, a queen was admiring the falling snow,
when she saw a rose blooming in defiance of the cold.
Reaching for it she pricked her finger and three drops of blood fell.
And because the red seemed so alive against the white she thought,
“If only I had a child as white as snow, lips as red as blood,
hair as black as a raven’s wings, and all with the strength of that rose.”
Soon after a daughter was born to the queen and was named Snow White.”
– The Huntsman, Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Wanting the things you don’t have

673c19776bbe518b2aa44901ed7548aa.jpg
Click to enlarge

Autumn has only just arrived and I am already creating wonderous winter compositions. Typical, isn’t it? Longing for what you don’t have?

A desire for things you don’t (or can’t) have is something quite irrational, thus naturally making it something very human. Desires and wishes might actually be one of the most cruel yet beautiful aspects of our lives. For instance, we long for happiness and hope to find it in certain aspects of life, such as a romantic partner, friendships, money or perhaps in fame in recognition. In any case, the journey to reaching these goals are dreadfully long and painfully difficult. But then, when we finally reach the top of the mountain and find ourselves at the paradisiacal heights of happiness, we feel accomplished and satisfied. Though the feeling only lasts so long before we grow weary of it and look for something new to make us happy.

We find ourselves stuck in an eternal journey of finding happiness. This endless cycle may seem cruel, but ironically, it is also what keeps our lives so interesting and intruiging. It keeps up going. Because, whether we would like to admit it or not, we all long to be happy and even after finding out happiness is mostly temporarily, we will still look for it.

We humans are irrational beings, longing for the things we don’t have and sometimes, admittedly, not being able to be grateful for the things we do have. But somewhere between our nonsensical doubts and desires, we find peace and serenity as we see the beauty in all of our best mistakes and unlogical tendencies.

“She was close, and she held me very tightly
‘Til I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name
And I elongated my lift home,
Yeah I let him go the long way round
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my shortcuts to myself
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak
Messing with the smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken armIt was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in letraset
No you can’t call me her name”
– Arctic Monkeys, Cornerstone
