With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

Happy New Years everyone!! When I first started to write up this post it wasn’t new years buuut with me trying to multi-task more than my brain can comprehend it is now New Years and I get to say Happy New Years to you all so I’m going to milk this opportunity right.. now.
Lemme just start with the biggest apologies if my resolution seems wonky. Photoshop decided to corrupt my main image I was working on when adding a reflection image to the base of it. Note to myself to save each major change separately rather than relying on just one psd for one picture.. sigh… I tried my best to recover it but only you guys could truly tell me hehe. I also apologize for my bad gif this time, my windlights resetted and now I need to spend time trying to fix up a new one lols. Such a bright one!
So not to make this post about me but I was actually praised recently in a way that touched me very deeply.. I was.. am struggling to keep my interest in what I love doing mainly because I don’t feel as though I’m helping anyone. But when I hear from anyone that they are inspired.. was able to find different stores.. branch out.. It motivates me to keep going, as if my voice isn’t falling on phantom ears. But I just wanted to give a public thank you to all those who either just discovered me and like me, been following me and I don’t know you’ve been following that long and appreciate the hell out of y’all and all of the in betweens because I’m pretty sure this is a run on sentence from hell.. But either way Thank you sooo much from the bottom of this icy heart. ♥
I do really hope people can see the progress I’ve been making as much as I do and actually enjoy it.. I do try and strive to better myself with each post. Granted some days my head is not always in the game and I’m scrambling to make deadlines to where I’m pretty sure the struggles are shown. I have minimized how many sponsors I take on because of that so I didn’t feel stress and I can truly show designers items the way I want and paint a picture with them. I am truly grateful for all the sponsors that kept me around and treat them like VIPs for it, without them don’t think I’d last this long either.
Anywho, I’m starting to ramble from lack of sleep and I should snuggle with my pillow like this cardigan is snuggling my avi.. By the way FLUFFFY cardigan.. lol. Happy shopping and Happy New Years.♥
Be patient and understanding, as magic is gifted to those who do not rush their destiny.
Surprises surprises in this picture this time round. I say surprises because for once I am actually not wearing maitreya and decided to dust off the old freya body and try and give it another whirl. Never know when I might pop up with something different on, hopefully I do this more often because it actually is quite fun. My biggest con with this freya body through… The deforming of hands with certain bento poses.. Phew.. I hope that gets fixed sometime soon seeing how long this body has been out and just recently ot moving fingers…. But I digress. U definitely have to keep an eye out on my fingers when doing certain poses, in this one it had a bit of conflict with the bento pose and bento holding pose of the book. So if you ever had that happen to you, you are not alone and man is it annoying lol.
Ok on to my inspo for this picture!,, I don’t really have one. To be honest I think the most fun about the picture was adding the cats in randomly to add the look of trying to read an ancient scripture then all of a sudden some black sphinx decide to keep ya company. Think the wiccan side of me slowly trying to show lols.
This book by the way has some crazy customization that I did decide to show you to, to yes, hopefully entice you to get one yourself for picture or roleplay purposes if not already. But when you look down below at the pictures notice how there’s options to change the pages. That alone made me want to do a looking over the shoulder picture but I got so frustrated trying to make this one work I forgot lols. Did I mention how I really like books. Real life too. Nothing beats the smell of a freshly opened book.
I think I failed to point out, now that I think about it, how much I have love me some fur shawls… I know I confessed my love for anything furry but if that anything furry can also drape on my arms… omg gimme. Don;t get me wrong this is a sexy ass dress but maaan I was sold on that shawl. Especially with my new ears and tail, that I did not wear in the picture since I didn’t have anything crystal wise and wanted to break the themes if LoL, it just blends all together so well.
Eek.. I must sat I think this is the longest I blabbed on a post in a while lols. Blabbed so much I’m unsure how to even end it.. Besides the norm wishing a good shopping experience of course.. . . . Guess I’ll just leave it at that then lol. ♥
Dun da duuuun! My first picture back and I decided to make it a two for one hehe..
Bet this was something you didn’t expect to see in soo long. Last time I took a sexy picture with one of my friends was exactly 4yrs ago this year. It’s surprising how much time flies but also shows I didn’t try to grow in my friends and couple picture taking skills. So I plan to remedy that by not only introducing my bestie to blog more with me as well as a few others. I promised it before but now that my graphics are actually fixed, I can definitely take pictures with more people now. Well.. debating on how the reactions from this storyteller are will really determine if I continue trying. ^^;
No one ever tells ya how when your without laptop for over 2 weeks your artistic skills get rusty as hell and almost feels like starting from scratch.. So I do apologize for my rough editing.. Actually all I did was add shadows to this picture, everything else was pretty much the viewer. Eep! I just realized this is my first picture in soo long. o .o Definitely feels good to break the silence of over a month! Even though my blog hasn’t been as silent my Flickr and such has been and I’m so sorry my other medias! I’m back! Please revive back with me.
Also a big thanks to Backdrop City for actually having the complete gacha set out.. All it did was make me try and hunt down yardsales even more to finish it myself lol. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
Life is short, and if we enjoy every moment of every day, then we will be happy no matter what happens or what changes along the way.

Apologies for not having much to say this time.. I do love having at least a paragraph here for you to read.. But I find myself a bit lost for words.. just sort of making up things as I go. Well.. I could at least freaking gush about ItGirls new body appliers and how much I have fallen back into their skin grace.. Or how I love this flipping shrug that Cynnful is hosting at an event.. But for now.. I needs rest! Thanks again to Backdrop City! I didn’t even know there was an elevator/apartment backdrop!
Let’s forget the baggages of the past and make a new beginning.

So I’ve decided to not take on anymore sponsors.. At this day and age in SL, bloggers are no longer unique.. The styles slowly become the same, as well as requirements most want bloggers to follow. To me.. this hinders my creativity.. Takes away all the fun in blogging and literally turns it into a job where you only get paid what designers decide to give you.. Many times what you are given.. is against your own style yet you have to try and make it work in someway.. Well no more for me. I have lost my passion in blogging and am determined to get it back. The sponsors that decide to stay with me.. I feel have never tried to dwindle my creativity, no matter how un-explainable some of posts are lol. I miss the random creativeness in SL without the competition of trying to stay the best or in the spotlight. With these changes I hope I’ll get back to posting as much as I use to besides just dance reviews.
Oh! Speaking of dances, I was accepted as MOVE! blogger! So be prepared for even more diverse dances. So diverse it might be a bit harder for me to pair songs with some dances because they are definitely club dances. Just dancing to whatever beat comes on. If there is one thing I will forever be passionate about is dances. Fashion changes and not always for the good but no one can turn down some good dances, right? XD
Huzzah! For it finally being Fall as well, that will definitely trap me inside this house more mainly because it will be cold outside. XD But that also means I wont have to worry about bugging nail designers for mesh toes because it will be sneaks and boots season again! If you do happen to have me on FB, you’ll notice I keep asking nail designers to make some mesh toenails for these fingernails they be making. lols I don’t know if it’s just me but it irritates me so much when I have these fly nails.. but my toes.. my toes.. I can’t get them to match. XD Who the heck stares at only their fingers and don’t think about toes..Beats me but I will always be asking this question every time I see some nail releases so you might see me in the comments! XD
I’ll probably be the only person who feels this way by the way.. but I actually liked this year of Hair Fair.. I saw some comments where people were saying oh it’s sp awful.. It’s like South meets West.. blah blah.. Yet I feel all the other hair fairs.. lacked ethnic diversity in hair.. This round we have more of it and I realize how most who wear nothing but straight or wavy hair is the ones complaining the most.. It bothers me none but just thought I’d point out some things while looking about on SLFB. So if you haven’t been to this round of Hair Fair yet, the sims have finally let some leg room and you should be able to get in with no problem! Although I must admit, I was sad there wasn’t many futuristic hairs this time but either way I got a few good wigs to last me.. a week? XD
I might also, if you haven’t noticed already, begin to post my honest opinions MORE about things I see.. deal with on SL along with sharing my photos. Of course, if you don’t care to know you can always just look at my hard work and ignore these words. But just forewarning, don’t expect me sugarcoat things, I’m not willy wonka. And what I post here is how I feel at this moment, I might be a bit wiser the next day and change my views but for now as you read this.. This is how I feel at this moment about certain things. Taking my blog back and making it fully mine, have a blog to be proud of and give unbiased opinions. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥ (o_ _)ﾉ彡☆
I wanted to do a goodbye summer post after being inspired by the new music video by Childish Gambino.. I also realized it got a looot quieter around where I live… Which means the birds have already left. But a lot of days.. It still feels like summer. Special thanks to Baja Cove for having this really beautiful layout and shot I was able to get cause of it. Unfortunately I am playing a bit of damage control catch up so apologies I don’t have much to say this time! But at least most the things I’m wearing are or will mainstore releases once C88 ends for the new round. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
