Work hard…Dream big…

I can’t believe we are already over half way through October, soon its Halloween, then its Bonfire Night for us in the UK and once those celebrations are gone I know Christmas is on it’s way.   I am a huge fan of Christmas, some would describe me as a big kid lol its just such a magical time of the year and I can’t wait.

But first for today’s post, one done while relaxing at home, in my comfy clothes I love so much and todays is courtesy of the awesome PaperMoon designer, the dress is just gorgeous, you could add leggings to it if you prefer but I chose cute thigh high socks by MUKA instead.   The gorgeous eyes are by Mesange and currently available at the TWE12VE event.

Happy Wednesday everyone ♥

If you never try, you will never know…

Happy Saturday everyone, the weekend is here and doesn’t it feel good lol.   Today’s title is a small quote I got today and it really is true.   So many of us sit and wish for this or wish for that but all we do is talk, you never know what you can do, what you can achieve until you try.  I used to sit and look at all the wonderful blogs out there, inspired by them I knew that I wanted to try it for myself, initially I came into this world of Fashion blogging by supporting my bestie Exis, I was the silent partner on the blog, doing the admin and setting it all up while she took the pictures, made the fabulous and creative posts.

Once we was all set I began my own journey of blogging, photography and honestly it’s now a huge part of my life, it’s hard work, anyone who says blogging is easy “you just put on clothes and take a picture” needs to walk a week in a bloggers shoes.  A friend of mine saw yesterday the day in the life of a blogger lol from choosing your outfit and accessories, the pose and location, the windlight etc and that’s all before you even start on the editing in PS and actually posting your blog, making sure to credit it correctly,  he was really surprised and commented on how he hadn’t realised how much goes into it lol.

For me every moment is worth what I do because I love it so much.  I get to showcase many fabulous designs from my own wonderful sponsors aswell as items I purchase to blog, I get to explore wonderful sims of SL and I am also getting to know some wonderful people, even though we don’t meet or even talk much apart from Flickr, I come to appreciate all they do, the hard work, aswell as be thankful for the support we all give each other.

So next time you want to try something, don’t think about it, do it, because “If you never try, you will never know”

Todays outfit is courtesy of the wonderful designers Love for the gorgeous hair which comes with a halo and is available at The Book of Daniel Event that opens today, this event is for a really wonderful cause so be sure to check it out.  The cute dress I am wearing is by PaperMoon, the hand tattoos are Arabic Tattoos and the really cute pose I am using is by the awesome MEOW Poses.  I really enjoyed putting this one together.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone ♥

New Chapter…

“There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page or closing the book”

There comes a time when you have to decide what is right for you, what isn’t, what makes you happy, what doesn’t and you need to act on it.   We all sit and hope that things will change, things will fix, things will go back to the way they was but the reality even if a harsh one is nothing in life is certain, things change, people change, relationships, friendships, even yourself changes.

I have gone through a lot of uncertainty recently, had some hard decisions to make, and a lot of hard times but I know that I will always come through any ups and downs stronger for them.  I have good friends to pick me up and support me through good days and bad and for that I am extremely thankful.

This week I am starting a new chapter of my virtual life, is it easy no but in the end it will work out for the best, I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason and endings whilst they can be very sad, do lead you to new beginnings and maybe even greater things, who knows, but I am about to discover.

Always remember two things…..If it makes you happy do it, if it doesn’t don’t…

Have a great day/afternoon/evening everyone ♥

Exploration

Exploration comes in many forms, from exploration of you, your likes and dislikes, from exploring new colours in your wardrobe or makeup, new music genres, even new circles of people, lifestyles and even places.   It’s one of the things I love about Second Life being able to explore things you may not have the confidence or ability to explore in real life.

I am a very non-judgemental person and a firm believer of each to their own, what is for me isn’t necessarily for others and vice versa and in Second Life that is definitely needed.  I love to see and watch people’s differences, even seeing all the different styles of fashion and looks people create, it amazes me at times.

In my blogging I explore many things, from hair, to makeup, to Mesh heads, skins and clothes and huge credit goes to the amazing designers out there that make all that possible.  Today’s post I have another fabulous head by Catwa and one that’s been released as a static head for 400L which if you’re a Catwa group member you get 100L back as store credit,  she’s so pretty.  Add to that the gorgeous new Dolce skin by Amara beauty and I was one happy girlie lol.   I finished my look by the newly released dress by the awesome PaperMoon designer and what better way to show it than to use the new and exclusive release by MEOW POSES Innocent Pose which is available at the Suicide Dollz event, so why not do some exploration yourself and check them all out.

Have a great day everyone ♥

PaperMoon

Today’s post I must admit has been one of my favourites to do so far, not only because I got to wear the gorgeous outfit by PaperMoon the amazing Designer I have the pleasure to become a blogger for recently, but also I got to explore the superb Elysion sim while looking for a place that would be great to showcase this outfit.   The outfit is not only elegant and classy but totally sexy too.  It comes in assortment of colours, with the skirt coming in classic and fitted sizes aswell as Slink, Belleza and Maitreya and the top available is classic sizes.   If you haven’t seen PaperMoon’s store yet, now is the time, you won’t regret it.   Enjoy ♥
