Melting in the Heat

Whew, it is HAWT outside. I truly believe that.. if i could have melted… I probably would have this past week. It seems we are all feeling the heat. The weather totally knocked me out last week. The temperatures lowered. And I feel like a person again…not on fire. This past week, I felt pretty miserable from the heat like so many. Thankfully, in my real life, my animals kept me really great company. I was incredibly lucky to have them. So my pets kind of inspired this picture–chilling with ice cream and my best friend by my side. Animals are awesome like that.

Which leads me to the next topic, the adorable wolf, decor, and fantastic summer clothes, I must talk about it all. There are a TON of items in this picture. As I was writing down all my credits in a notecard, I realized that… I may just need to mention briefly the events. Most of the items featured above are from Collabor88 and the latest round at the Epiphany. I have to say.. I really adore this outfit. I don’t want to take it off. This cute little romper by Aleutia, hair from monso, earrings from Max Gossamer, glasses by fetch are all from Collabor88. My decor comes from so many wonderful companies: Ice cream and inner tube from Dahlia, cat bag and gun from Tentacio, gloves from foxwood, and way too many to list in this paragraph. You really will have to check out my credits down below. I really shopped till I dropped.

As I melted from heat in real life, I really just wanted to be by the beach with an ice cream cone, a water gun.. and may be a furry friend by my side. July has been the month where I haven’t been online much. I am going to have more time, since some things in my real life have slowed down. I had family that had an adoption go through. So I’ve spent some nights talking to family and sharing pictures of the little guy. We’re all thrilled. But now, I can sit down relax and kind of get into the groove of blogging again. If you like any of my items featured above, please check out my credits.

As always, be kind to one another.

Cheers,

Violet XOXO

Sparkles and Unicorns

even pixies succumb to the beauty of unicorns....

Even pixies succumb to the beauty of unicorns.. by me

There’s some really great shopping across the grid, but one event that has massively inspired me lately is the fantasy fair. It ends May 5th, so you have some time. To be honest, I had no clue what to do for my next post, and then this fair popped up. It supports a great cause–The American Society–relay for life.

Cancer research has been very important to me. I also know that many others feel that same passion to find a cure. I had a friend once say that she believed everyone knows someone effected by this horrible diagnosis. And I think so too. For me personally, both of my grandmothers passed from lung cancer and a family friend was also taken to soon from lung cancer. So this cause has always been one that personally means a lot to me. Check out the fair, you can help in the fight. If you want something whimsical, please check out the fantasy fair. Your lindens support such an important organization. This beautiful unicorn is by Teegle. It really is gorgeous and a lot of fun to ride. I’ve been having fun riding my unicorn all week. She even inspired my land and decor.

Now, I want to get into the rest of my outfit. My hair is SINTIKIA and it’s called Titania. My lingerie is by The Secret Store–Tabatha Bodysuit. The detailing on the bodysuit is absolutely beautiful. My headband is from the wonderful Dahlia–Emma. The ribbons in the background are from Half Deer and the single ribbons can be individually tinted. All of the above items can be found at Collabor88, but you only have a few days until the next round. So you will have to hurry, to check them out. The new round opens on the 8th.  Finally, the well is from foxwood and available at Kustom9. If you like any of these items, please check out my credits below.

I came up with the quote above. I found myself totally obsessing over my unicorn. I mean where else can you say.. well I rode a unicorn all afternoon? Second life of course. And I did!! So this pretend pixie did indeed succumb to its beauty.

Happy shopping everyone!!

Be Kind To One Another

Cheers,

Violet xoxo

Sleep Over

 

Capt. Crewe: You can be anything you want to be, my love, as long as you believe. (movie quote from A little princess)

Capt. Crewe:
“You can be anything you want to be, my love, as long as you believe.

I have always loved the movie A Little Princess.. the version made in the nineties. Some of the most beautiful scenes are in that movie. I loved the story about a girl having a wild imagination. It’s such a lovely thing to live in a world of imagination and magic. There’s just something about that story that I love. For me, this quote means a lot to me. It gives a certain kind of hope. And I like books and movies that promote hope. If we lose hope, we lose the possibility of making those dreams and beliefs true. Hope drives us to go after goals. It inspires us to try. When we try…is when we truly live. So never give up hope.
As I saw ads for the epiphany, I knew right away what I wanted to do. I’m really excited to do this photo. It’s kind of my take on a sleep over with all things pretty. I probably would set this scene up in my house, if I had the money for all those flowers. Hey flowers are expensive!! But thankfully, it’s much easier to make this in second life.
I really want to thank everyone for making such cute things. I have to thank Eliavah for making this truly fantastic outfit. This is hawt and I love it. I like the ruffles at the top of the shirt, the color, and the fit. It made me feel extremely girly. Eliavah is selling this outfit at the epiphany. So you too can take a chance on her gacha. Kalopsia is selling the Cleo set–the pink lamp and mirror at collabor88. Lamb made this great hair which is also available at collabor88. Disorderly created cozy piles which is available at collabor88 as well. You can see it in front of my tent.. the cookies and magazines. It is all linked together. I absolutely adore it. The laundry basket is from tarte and can be found at a new event called soiree. Soiree is a new event and an extension of Collabor88. I bought so many things at the epiphany. I could go on and on about all of these really great events… but my credits list says it all. Please stop by Collabor88, FaMESHED, Soiree, and the epiphany. There are some truly great events on the grid. Don’t miss out.. tp and bring a friend with you.
I’m ending my post a little early. I have so many credits from this wonderful photo and I want it to be the center of this post. I hope my follows have fun shopping this month at some wonderful events.
As always, Be Kind To One Another,
Cheers,
violet xoxo
