We Love Roleplay is back for an incredible round of fantasy goodness. I am featuring the outfit by Cellar Door, complimented by Love’s newest release at Hairology amongst other goodies.
I am wearing a new head applier by PUMEC. Evie, as she is called, is available at The Crossroads until November 30th. She comes with several brow options and an additional beauty HUD. Finally, I added a lipstick by JUMO, which is currently available at The Makeover Room, to complete the look.
“Sometimes I’m alone but never lonely
That’s what I’ve come to realize
I’ve learned to love the quiet moments
The Sunday mornings of life
Where I can reach deep down inside
Or out into the universe
I can laugh until I cry
Or I can cry away the hurt” – India Arie, Private Party
There are an incredible amount of amazing bloggers on the grid and it’s undeniable that my lovely friend, Hara is one of them. Her blog Twisted Euphoria features a variety of styles, ranging from casual to fantasy. She keeps her work versatile, thus it never becomes predictable. Her work is one of a kind and never ceases to amaze me.
For this photo we dressed up as sexy kitties (for your entertainment). It’s our first photo together but no worries, there’ll definitely more of Hara’s prettiness posted on my blog soon enough ♥
“It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve” – Demi Lovato, Let It Go
Another post inspired by a movie I have yet to see. Will I ever watch a movie prior to mentioning it on my blog? I have actually been wanting to watch this movie for about a year, but the timing just never seemed right. I am planning to watch this movie somewhere next week, as my next semester is already starting the week after that (week 36).
Summer truly flew by, and the amount of time I have spent within the virtual world is an awful lot. In all honesty, I’m not proud of it. I wish I had spent more time with my friends catching pokémon or doing whatever we millennials are supposed to do. I wish I would have seen the beach, the forest, or felt the late night summer heat on my skin more than once or twice. Time spent with my friends, virtual or real life ones, is always well spent. However, realizing I have seen more digital landscapes than real ones the past few weeks fills me with distress and regret, hence my spontaneous absences.
I am aware that “consistency” seems to be a word I am highly unfamiliar with. As I have recalled so many times, all I wish to do is live my life to the fullest. Thus making this lifestyle in which I waste my days behind a computer screen in an attempt to be “consistent” whilst the sun is shining and I have 3 missed calls from my best friend, perhaps slightly unsuitable for me.
I will not quit. Though I will decrease my time in-world and spent it in-the-real-world instead, I will still be spending some time in the twisted universe that is Second Life. But, before my textbooks and nights of revising hit me hard again, I have a few beaches and forests to visit, ciao! ♥

Adulthood seems to be a reoccuring theme on my blog, as it is also a reoccuring fear that casually lingers between my everyday thoughts. Fortunately, Buzzfeed tells us that it is possible to be the real life incarnation of Peter Pan! (Sort of…)
In all seriousness, I genuinely did enjoy watching this short but powerful video. I remember being incredibly worried myself about not being able to wear pastel colours when I would grow up because “that is not what adults wear”. It is a strange thing to worry about, but it troubled my mind regardless.
What saddened me though were the few comments calling the video “useless” or another one of Buzzfeed’s “we ran out of idea’s”-moments. To be fair, Buzzfeed does have their quirky moments (to put it lightly), but video’s such as these can, besides being very amusing, also be quite helpful and comforting. It reminds me that there are others like me who would love to rock pastel hair and bold coloured clothing at the age of 30, and that it forgiveable to not be a perfect, society crafted adult, but to be yourself instead.
What I mean by that is that some of us grow up to be different than the stereotypical pile of responsibilities and wisdom that is an average adult. Honestly, it’s okay to be either; so long as you are being yourself and feel comfortable with the person you are. Often times we find that we channel a spirit that we are not, purely for the sake of fitting in or being able to reach society’s standard and sometimes, sadly, your friends or families standards. Remember that this right here is yourlife and it is up to you to decide how it is shaped. Don’t let standards decide who you are, how you dress, or the life you live in general. You are the artist of your own lively masterpiece and the conductor of your own spiritual orchestra.
“To me, getting older isn’t changing who you are
because of what people expect you to be,
but really owning who you are”
