Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain
This month, there have been so many wonderful events–Kustom9, Sultry, romp, and A+. I have been so busy this month, buying a ton of furniture and not so innocent clothing. It took me a little while, but after all that shopping.. this picture was possible. I’ve had a lot of fun shopping this month.
Because so many of these items are new, I decided to jump right into all of the new shiny things available. My rug is available at Sultry and by Merak. My lounge chair is from sultry and by Krescendo. The regular chair is also by Krescendo, but at A+. My pose is by Amite and also available at A+. I also bought the Shibari case from Sultry from unKindness. The socks and male underwear are from Half Deer and are also available at Sultry. My hair is from Limerance and you can find it at this month’s round at romp. And my shoes are also from romp and by Miss Chelsea.Finally, my gorgeous lingerie is from the incredibly talented Eliavah. She created this hot number for Kustom9. I really adore these items and the color pallet together. I may have to steal it for my own real life home. Whew.. that’s a lot of items from a ton of events. I picked up these pillows from foxcity. They were a group gift awhile ago. I believe that they are no longer available–although I could be wrong. Please check the mainstore. I’ll provide a link below.
Sometimes when I shop, I will see something and wait a little while to buy it. Then, when I find something that matches it, I buy it. I do tend to wait a little while to see what is available and how things will fit together. It takes me a little time to put the idea together for pictures, but I’m so glad that I waited. All of these pieces work very well together. And I have to admit that hair from Limerance may be one of my favorites. It’s curly and a bit wild–and a little out of control–and feminine. It’s the makings of some great hair.It’s also tintable. I’ll be sure to use all of these pieces in my home.
Finally, I always try to talk about second life. I’ve been a little jaded lately. I had a good friend remind me that not all people will like you and that sometimes… that is not a bad thing. I think everyone has at one time or another not felt included, or left out. The beautiful thing about second life …and even in real life, there are so many people out there in the world. And if you start to feel like that, just remind yourself that the world keeps spinning. Tomorrow is a new day. And you’ll find your place. Try to stay positive out there in the world residents. There’s always a brighter day ahead.
Be Kind To One Another,
Cheers
Violet XOXO

Sweet Dreams

A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers. Suzy Kassem

I have been really busy this past week in all worlds. I’ve taken pictures and built sets. And I finally get that moment to really sit down and think about this blog post. As soon as, I saw the backdrop from foxcity at Collabor88, I knew right away that I would make a dreamy post with sweet treats. So I really have looked forward to this post.

Normally on Valentine’s day, I send out photos ..a valentine’s day card. But this year, I indulged in sweet treats in real life, savoring each wonderful bite and I really did just enjoy the day. Instead, I opted for a delectable treats and a day of rest instead.

I love valentine’s day and wanted to do a month of sweet dreamy posts. I wanted to get lost in the moment of happiness. And maybe make a post inspired by legally blond. I love that movie. And I would be lying, if I said that movie wasn’t my muse. It totally was. There’s a scene where Elle Woods is sitting in her bed eating chocolate, after a break up. I think many people have gone through that upset. For some reason, second life seemed to curse a lot of my friends this past month. And that scene is one that always comes to mind, when I think of break ups–maybe because I’ve been there before. Who hasn’t?

This month has been nothing of love and hearts inworld for me personally, but in my dreams..and my pictures it was sweet sailing. So I let my love of all things sweet inspire me and a scene covered in pink–despite the sadness. I think even in that scene.. one can see the hope. Her friends coming to pull her out of her funk. Second life can be like that…so much. We go through a hard break with a friend, significant other, partner, etc, and we get Elle Woods in that moment. But it’s nice to see the hope through our friends.
What made my valentine’s day sweet inworld? It was my friends saying things that I needed to hear… not what I wanted to hear. It was the people who surrounded me in all things pink and reminded me that mistakes don’t define you. Anger is only temporary. And there are moments of calm. So maybe you have been touched by the second life Valentine’s Day curse. This post is for you my friend. I’m here to say, this too shall pass. Keep dreaming sweet things. Maybe indulge in something sweet in real life. If you can’t have that sweet treat in real life, maybe opt for something that you love to do instead. Whatever you do, just make sure to do something that makes you smile. And remember forgiveness is important, not for the other person, but for yourself. Holding on to anger and resentment only hurts us that much more in the end.
I came to the conclusion of what to write by a show called One Day At A Time. It’s about a Latino family living in Los Angeles, with all of its ups and downs of life. In one of the episodes, there was a woman struggling with anxiety. Recently, I’ve dealt with my own anxiety, during bad moments of pain. It can be scary and hard, especially when you can’t breath. But it was in that moment, I realized the importance of second life being a calm place. This isn’t a space where I want to be angry at anyone. My body makes me angry enough. This isn’t the place for it. And in that, I found forgiveness. I forgave anyone in that moment, because anger no longer served me. I can only hope that moment of clarity comes to others. It’s a gift. And if you seek a peaceful second life, it all starts within.
Before I end this blog post, I want to go into my fabulous outfit. My shirt, cardigan, skirt, and shoes are all by the fantastic Eliavah. She has really out done herself with this outfit. The texture and colors are so pretty. I felt soft and feminine. I just want to go out in the town and party the night away in this outfit. My skirt, cardigan, and shirt are available at Collabor88 and my shoes are for purchase at Equal10. Various pieces of my decor can be found at Collabor88.

Avi’s ..both naked as can be, but parts are hidden.

So I really wanted to write this post up earlier, but real life decided to steal me away. Sometimes real life has a way of soaking up your time. I’ve been had real life appointments and responsibilities. But I’m here now, so that’s the important thing. This blog will be a little short, since I am pressed for time.
In the wee hours of the morning, I was going talking about Valentine’s Day and my love for it. One of my favorite and few childhood memories came on this lovely day. When I was a kid, a teacher had a Valentine’s Day party. We put bags on the back of our chairs, people brought in food, and drinks. It was the very first time that anyone said that they had loved me–who wasn’t family. They had blond hair and wore a hearing aid. I was a kid. I remember  learning about it and what it meant to be going deaf. Since my Aunt was losing her hearing, I always wanted to know more. It was a card, a candy heart, and a simple I love you from a childhood classmate. To me…that’s Valentine’s Day and it has been ever since–not the flowers, expensive chocolates, or jewelry that the media would have you believe. It’s just love. And I have celebrated every type of love on that day–family, friends, and pets. I never limit it to a special someone. Love should always be celebrated.
That loving feeling inspired a pop up Pose Fair event. It ends soon though, you’ll have to run to that LM, if you want to get that last minute pose of love for that special someone. These two poses are by Cuca Designs. I have to say they are some really beautiful poses. I have a lot of love for them. Some of my favorite poses are couple poses. I love the ones that show those tender moments.  After the pose fair ends, both of these poses will be available in her mainstore. And I will share that link down below. In my photo with the blond, my lingerie is from Collabor88 by E.D. This month’s round is absolutely amazing with hearts, pink, and red. It really gets the grid in the mood to spread that love around. The bathroom is from Florix and available at equal10.
Before I close this blog, I want to touch on a subject that’s been bugging me. I had someone tell me that not every resident would get my blog, and I’ve let that one comment really bug me. While this is true, not every person will get my long ramblings about life, there will be some people who do. Since, there are people that I know who started to follow me because of my blog. I had that brief moment where I wanted to just scrap everything and hide. But I had to stay true to myself. Life lessons that apply in all worlds, inspirational quotes, and anecdotes about my life. It’s all relevant in my choices for second life. Never underestimate people. It’s something that I’ve learned from the virtual world. Also a very long time ago, I had a mentor tell me that when you write anything, you have to connect to the audience. In my experience, the best way I know how to connect with people is the human experience. It took some friends convincing me to keep going and keep doing what I love to do–which is to take pictures with my heart and match those pictures with words.
What we say can effect people. And even I forget how my words matter–negatively and positively. Sometimes we have to see past the opinions of others and do the things that make us happy–especially in second life. And I tend to be happy creating these blogs. I’ve had a pretty rough go at it, these past few months. One of the things that has made me happy, is the ability to log on and be creative. I get to think about things that make me happy–movies, music, and pictures. It’s those positive things that help me through difficult times. So if I let someone get to me, I let them ruin this, which is sad since it helps me in my real life. I’m writing this because I want to send the message that no matter what others think, never stop doing the activities that bring you joy. I leave you with this as my closing thought.
Be kind to one another,
Cheers,
Violet.

And I sure do need a little bit of chocolate. It’s that time of year again–chocolates, flowers, and hearts oh my. That’s right, Valentine’s day. is around the corner The grid is alive with events surrounding that special day along with the normal monthly events. And some of them have some amazing and even funny items. You can’t miss Uber, Collabor88, or one of my favorites this month–Cupid Inc.
I want to discuss briefly some of the items in the above photo. The rug game is from Astralia. It’s this really great and playful rug with games, pillows, and animations. It’s also from Cupid Inc. Anxiety made this really cheeky envelope with hair on it called the daunting lover, which is also from Cupid inc. The rose petals are also available at Cupid Inc and the dog house from Half Deer is also available at Cupid Inc..  My outfit is from Uber and by dead dollz. My hair is from doux at their mainstore. I would like to make a quick mention about this hair. The bow is sold separately, as well as the style options. It’s such cute hair. I adore it.
My girl ali is wearing an outfit from Scandalize from Collabor88. The balloons are from nomad, from this past Friday’s Fifty Linden Friday event. My wonderful and fabulous backdrop is from Foxcity. This cute wonderful dog in the dog house is from Collabor88 by black bantom. It is just too cute for words. Whew.. that’s a lot of items.
But, before I go, I want to discuss my picture. It was inspired by Legally Blond. I love that movie. I always thought it was cute and fun. I usually watch movies like that to perk me up and I watch stand up comedy to laugh. I’m always inspired by things that make me smile and/or laugh. I hope you enjoy this picture, as much as I have enjoyed taking it. If you like any of the items featured above, please look below for my credits.
