A biome is a formation of plants and animals that have common characteristics due to similar climates and can be found over a range of continents (Wikipedia). The word itself does not have to do much with my blog post. In all honesty, I simply thought it was a pretty word. Continue reading

The one word blog post titles are coincidental, I swear!

Grace is one of Insol‘s recent releases and is to be found at the current round of Tres Chic. Insol also released an additional lipstick set that matches the head applier wonderfully. Furthermore, I am wearing lashes by Arte and eyes by Avi-Glam to compliment the look. Happy shopping! ♥

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.”

Anything bare that is made of gold

“I might as well be in a garden
I said, ah
A smell in the air is a dripping rose
(You could be the one for me)
Another soul to meet my void then
Of anything bare that’s made of gold

A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
Cause all that remains before it’s begun”
– Chet Faker, Gold

All my heart, it breaks every step that I take

“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

Richest poverty

After last weeks final heat wave, it is officially time to wave the summery sun goodbye and say hello to the embrace of golden leaves and crisp air. I am, for once, looking forward to the new season. Who knows what it could be filled with; newfound happiness, love or perhaps something more simple and just as lovely, such as freshly baked cookies or discovering new types of pasta.

So far the autumn air has been filled with incredible tunes, which I would love to share with you. Today’s song is brought to you by the wonderful duo, Milky Chance.

“Come, come
We go up to church
And ring the bell of happiness
We go so far and we
End up in richest poverty”
– Milky Chance, Stunner

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”

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”
