Biome

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

Red sakura

Q1FEx.jpg

Flower symbolism is yet another aspect that makes life so utterly romantic and precious. The Japanese Sakura, which you likely know as the cherry blossom, symbolizes how life is short yet beautiful. This is due to the fact that cherry blossoms only live for a couple of days before they fall off their trees, though they are undeniably beautiful during this short lifetime. Continue reading

It is the last day of 2016 and I would like to thank you all for your support and love throughout this year. It has been an incredible year and I have seen my blog and following grow beyond my own expectation. This is something I am not only surprised about, but also something I am incredibly grateful for. I have also learned so much in regards to photography this year and have started to enjoy and appreciate the subject more and more. Besides that, I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the most amazing people this year and feel so blessed to be able to call them my friends. Thank you for making my year a lot brighter and fun!

Thank you all for everything, I wish you a super, awesome, splendid, amazing 2017!

Give yourself time to heal

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.

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

Girls night out

Click to enlarge

Admittedly, I have never had a girls night out. Perhaps it is due to the lack of youthful adventurism in my life or because I am far too introverted for such wild social events.

I’m not quite the party animal, unfortunately. My “squad” (10 points for millennial slang) and I would much rather spend a girls night in, watching scary movies and playing video games with a wide assortment of unhealthy snacks. However, I recently did have a virtual girls night out. Accompanied by the lovely Hara, we hit the SL town and stirred up some trouble!

I am wearing a jacket by Pixicat, which I purchased during their recent sale. In case you missed it, no worries! There are still plenty of other sales to spend all of your Lindens on, most of which are listed on the Seraphim sale tab. Besides that, I am also using The Sugar Garden‘s most recent release, which is an applier for the Catwa Catya bento head (that remains a tongue twister for me). Finally, I added a deep red lipstick by Arte to create a somewhat more sensual look.

Hara set up this incredible scene, using various items from The Horror! at The Arcade. Make sure you check out her blog for further information. It was great to see her again and take a photo together. I truly love collaborating with this beautiful lady and always have a wonderful time. Thank you, Hara-bear, for all of your loveliness and friendship ♥

The Angel

The Angel dress by The Annex was my inspiration for this photo. There was just something about it that captured my attention. Its festive and angelic features simply dazzled me. You can find this dress at the current round of We Love Roleplay.
The December round of WLRP is filled with a variety of magical and mystical goodies, most of which are winter themed. The wintery exclusives of the December round have all been listed in the official shopping guide. What I also deem quite helpful is the shopping map, which lists the locations of all the booths and designers. This makes it a lot easier to navigate around the event and to find the items you are looking for.
