Stars In Her Eyes

 

blog coming soon

 

Hello my fellow shopping addicts! This blog is a bit late. I’m really sorry about that. I have so much to talk about in this blog post. So first, let me begin by saying, I’m finally about to get that dreaded medical procedure. I know…I know. I was supposed to have it last month, but things didn’t go as planned. As of right now, everything is scheduled for next week. So I may not be around too much in the blogging world next week. I’ll need a little bit of down time to laugh at funny animations inworld and to catch up on the latest Netflixs sensation–and sleep of course. I’ll throw in some TLC and I’ll be good to go.

I tend to be a bit of a private person in all of my worlds and I don’t always share my real life struggles. For me in second life, I think it’s important to be a bit pretend. It’s not to harm people. I like to role play a happy and healthy person. Going through doctors appointments and chronic pain has been a bit of a personal struggle. However, every six months, I go in to see my surgeon and get some things done to give me quality of life. It hurts for about a week. But….I start to feel really good after the initial pain of everything. As a result of the wait, my presence online has been a bit touch and go. I’ll log on and go do something as simple as getting water–then boom, I’m asleep on the couch. Please forgive me, if I step away and seem to go afk.

The reason that I decided to share some of my real life is because of the Hair Fair. Before ever getting hurt, I never knew the feeling of being stared at for something out of my control. Then one day, I got hurt. It changed my entire life. As a result of that injury, I dealt with stares in public. I knew that people wanted to know what was wrong. I’m young, but at times I needed assistance walking–or even a chair to help get around. I deal with social anxiety and I struggled with those stares. Kids may go through those same emotions, when feeling a bit different from everyone.

You can help a child avoid some of the stares and lessen social anxiety by purchasing hair at the Hair Fair. It supports wigs for kids. You give children more than just a wig, when you buy that awesome hair. You give them a moment without a stare or maybe a moment free of social anxiety. I know, because I speak from experience. I can relate.

This event has become one of my favorites. I love it for everything it does. The designers come together and make these wonderful creations. I applaud them for contributing to a cause and making pretty mesh things for residents to wear. You get to help others and look gorgeous, while doing it.

Despite the pain of it all, I found solace in shopping on the grid this past month. As you can imagine, shopping in sl is so important to me. It boosts my morale. I smile. I get excited. I genuinely look forward to events. I can shop and walk for a really long time, if I want to! It makes me happy, even after I log off. Speaking of all those pretty things I buy…..

Let me take a moment to discuss all of the wonderful items in my picture. The hair featured above is from LeLutka at the Hair fair. My shorts, jacket, and boots can be found at the epiphany from Zenith. The fabulous tongue with a heart is at this month’s latest round at Uber by [CX]. Speaking of [CX], I had a moment to thank the creator for making this wonderful tongue. He truly cares about his customers.

I’ve had a tough time in my real life lately with pain, but on the grid has been a wonderful experience. It’s really hard for me to open up and talk about the impact of health issues. I would rather role play a scene at a beach, a bike ride, or have a social gathering with a ton of laughter–or a rp that makes me feel hot and sexy (not always easy to feel that way, when you hurt). All of those little sl moments help me get through those really tough parts.

You never know how your role play may help get someone through their rl day. So thank you to all of my wonderful friends for being a support system. Thank you designers for giving this girl a moment to just be kind of normal and healthy.

Be kind to one another!

Cheers,

Violet XOXO

blog coming soon

 

“Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.” Leonardo da Vinci

I have been one busy girl on the grid. There’s a ton of really great events out there. So I may end up doing a few blog posts more than my usual–to justify all those wonderful purchases. Designers, I tip my hat to you. There’s a ton of really great items. My inworld shopping experience definitely helped me fight the summer time blues.If you’re feeling a bit blue, I highly recommend retail therapy.

Okay, I’m going to start off with Romp. Can we talk about the amount of merchandise? I was so incredibly happy that it covers two sims. There’s a big variety of items out there. I am in awe. I shamelessly made a few purchases. In particular, I bought this lingerie set from Violent Seduction. It’s called Aphrodite, which is available in many different hues.

I also found this pose from An Lar poses. I use their poses from time to time. I adore it. Jessie is the name of the pose set. You can also find it at the event. I’m always awful with mentioning my poses in my blog. However, I found this at the same venue, so I had to mention it.

Now, we should discuss that wonderful naughty mask. Right away, I knew that it would go well with a previous gacha item from Stockholm and Lima. This lace up bunny mask was hiding in my virtual closet, but I dusted it off. Sometimes you buy something and forget to make an outfit with it. Then poof, you find an outfit at event, which goes with it perfectly. I am very guilty of doing this many times. I put it on and snapped a pick in my room. As they say, the rest is history. Just a side note, the bunny mask may be available at the main store. I included the link, but it may not be available. I purchased it awhile ago.Okay my lovely blog followers, I’m off to make some outfits……

For my next blog, I’m going to talk about Epiphany, and the oh so coveted Hair Fair of 2016. It’s hair for a cause. But that’s all for another time…….

So grab someone sexy and head over to Romp….so you can have a romp in the hay.

As always, be kind to one another.

Cheers

Whew, what a week I’ve had! I had people in and out of my real life home. They came knocking. They were faces of my past. Etched into my memory, there were times spent with them over many summers–sometimes good and sometimes bad. They’re a part of the real life story of Violet.

In the midst of nostalgia, I went to a few events and contemplated my past. Before I go into ohh the memories. Let me talk about uber again, I found this dress by Ison and it is hot. It’s not in flames on my body or anything, but sexy with a never ending slit. This wrap dress is perfect for a night out on the town, while trying to beat the summer heat. I also stopped by this month’s chapter four and found this wonderful head piece from LODE. I always love buying their head pieces, but I do have a bias for flowers after all. My name is Violet.

While picking up these wonderful items, I had a moment to think about my past, future, and even my present. Life is a complicated beast. Beautiful moments shaped the person that I am today, but harsh realities also had an effect on me. Despite those harsh moments, I pushed past them and I learned to find exciting things to look forward to–and live in the moment. I’m a little shaken with the events of this past week. So my blog is a little late. Hey….that’s life right. I’ll dust myself off and pick myself up again.

Here’s to shopping with friends for a little retail therapy!

Be good to one another and happy shopping.

Violet XOXO

For Pulse

 

Pulse

 

Designers and residents have come together to create a fundraiser inworld for the victims of the shooting in Orlando. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to those effected by this tragedy. I hope that residents can open their hearts to this cause and stop by this event. It’s for a really good cause.

So many of the designers, photographers, and other talented residents have come together donating their time, talents, and wares for this event. It really does warm my heart to know that people have come together for this cause.

Residents have also auctioned off various things. When you teleport in, there’s a board with various people offering wonderful things–pictures, clothes, and early access to events. If you click on their picture, it will give you a notecard describing what each resident is offering. Then, you bid by clicking and paying. If you’re the highest bid on July 12th, you get whatever is offered in the notecard.

I went to bid on things and bought a few really cute items. I purchased the tail by CX, nail polish from alaskametro, and body glitter from Izzie’s. All of these items are featured in the picture above. There are some cute things available, if you’re not into auctions. Or you can go and donate to the cause.

So don’t wait….donate.

As always, be kind to one another.
