Tomorrow is the last day of On9‘s June round before it closes up until the 9th for a new and dazzling round filled with summer delight. I will be doing a vlog for the July round of On9 as well, which is so very exciting for me.

On another note, because of my current real life circumstances I feel as if it wouldn’t be a bad idea to take a short break from Second Life and blogging/vlogging. I have to take some time off to focus on wrapping up my semester and simply reprioritize things. I will return as soon as I feel capable to blog/vlog again and above all, feel inspired to.

In all honesty, blogging has felt like such an obligation lately. I absolutely love taking the photo’s and experience so much joy creating new outfits, scenes and finding new photoshop techniques but some of my more recent posts were sparked by a force of inspiration rather than that they were results of its natural flow. I have so many ideas and concepts for my video blog and YouTube channel as well, though I never feel like executing them, simply because I am so tired, demotivated and feel so uninspired at times. And I know that creating content with that state of mind will lead to nothing but being unsatisfied and unhappy with my work, which leads to even more demotivation. It’s a vicious cycle and it’s one that I have been through and thought I had overcome in the past, but it always comes back. Due to this I also feel as if a short break could perhaps help me regain some of my “creative energy”, as far as I have that, and completely terminate this vicious cycle so I can return with new content that you and I will both enjoy without having to cope with all kinds of negativities and such. Thank you for everything and I hope to see you in July! ♥

“It’s summer all the time
With you, you make me feel alright
All swings and waterslides
We’re summery and pretty high
I’d like to watch the tide
Come and then go out at night
With you”

Blood, Guts & Chocolate Cake

Suicide Dollz opened for the second half of June and this round is just fabulous. My shirt is one of the event exclusives and so is this fierce skirt and choker, which I both love. Furthermore, On9, one of my favorite events, is also still open. I love On9 since a lot of great, and also a few of my personal favorite, designers are in there including Nanika who made these beautiful tattoos for this round. If you’d like to see them in white, my darling Ever has done a wonderful blog post with them. I’m also wearing these lovely platforms from [MODA], which you can also find at On9 until the 28th. Love Hair released this creative hairdo for The Fantasy Collective, another one of my favorite designers at an incredible event; so many win/win situations! And so much time spent on shopping… Oh well!

Today’s outfit is inspired by Teen Idle, a song by Marina & The Diamonds. It’s a rather depressing tune so I would recommend listening to it on a more rainy and humid summer day. I adore Marina ever since I discovered her. The Electra Heart album, where Teen Idle is from, was an absolutely thrilling experience and one I cannot help myself from sharing with the world, or at least, with my lovely readers. Enjoy!

“I wanna stay inside all day
I want the world to go away
I want blood, guts and chocolate cake
I wanna be a real fake

Yeah, I wish I’d been a, wish I’d been a teen, teen idle
Wish I’d been a prom queen fighting for the title
Instead of being sixteen and burning up a bible
Feeling super, super (super!) suicidal”
– Marina & The Diamonds, Teen Idle

Ballet of the Night

Ballet of the Night

One of the most hilarious memories I can recall from high school was the reason my history book gave to why we call Louis XIV the Sun King. It was supposedly because of a ballet play he composed in which he played a sun king, and wore a matching ballet suit for that role as well, while his nobles danced around him as if they were planets rotating around the sun. This fine piece of art was called the Ballet of the Night. I remember laughing for ages when my friends and I discussed all of the ridiculous but fabulous phenomenons during this era in France, namely regarding what took place in Versailles. It was mostly because my studybooks explained everything in a rather mocking manner. If only I had a photographic memory so I could quote exactly what it said. Trust me, you would laugh too. If only I had a photographic memory in general though, that would make studying so much easier!

Speaking of which, I have to get back to do some lovely studying. I have been distracted for way too long. Goshdarn, Second Life, always tempting me to log on and have fun…

Before I go I will quickly break down what I’m wearing. First off, I’m wearing a crop top from Hilly Haalan. I matched it with these adorable and stylish shoes by K.C. Couture. Both of these are exclusives at the current round of Designer Showcase. Designer Showcase had a makeover this month and has returned to the grid looking better than ever. Make sure you pay a visit, it’s looking absolutely wonderful over there!
The hair I’m wearing is from KoKoLoReS and it’s currently available at Suicide Dollz together with this sweet choker from RANSOM.

Finally, today’s tunespiration is a song by Ariana Grande from her newest album Dangerous Woman. It’s a song that reminds me of the “Yours Truly”-era, which was my favorite Ari phase. I still jam out to that album every week. The songs from that album are just so delicate and lovely, I truly can’t stop loving it. Anyway, have a listen! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. This is Moonlight by Ariana Grande.

“Every look, every touch makes me wanna give you my heart
I’d be crushin’ on you, baby
Stay the way you are

Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could have moonlight in your hands
‘Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
– Ariana Grande, Moonlight
