The Hermit

I like to go into a little shell and be a hermit and make music for a while. Delta Goodrem
There’s no doubt in my mind that this is my time to be a hermit. I’ve stayed on my land inworld, working on creating ideas for my blog. In real life, I got lost in a sea of music and books–anything creative. Sometimes being a hermit takes the edge off of living. It allows us to escape into our own little private bubble. And I needed to wrap myself in a bubble, allowing myself to laugh as much as possible and smile at the best things in life. I buried myself in the endless whole of netflix comedians. I have to say, being a hermit didn’t suck. Actually, it was quite relaxing.
Yet there comes a time, when you have to interact with the world. You have to pop the bubble that you live in, because people aren’t designed to be alone all the time. We’re social creatures, even if it means only spending time with others sometimes. I felt bad for needing space, because not everyone understood the silence. People take it personal. I had many reasons for wanting to close myself off this week, getting lost in my work inworld or spending time in real life.
This past week, I was very busy with real life and I’m going to take a brief second to talk about my real life–only because it effects my time inworld. I’ve waited all summer for a surgery date, but I had to get scans and tests done, before I could even think about booking it. I finally have a date set for surgery. Since I have a date for surgery and now all the details to go forward, my blogging will be sporadic after September 10th. I want to thank my sponsors for their patience and understanding at this time. This was my main reason for needing time alone. I’ve had a week of calling family and friends, giving them all the details. It has been a bit draining, so I needed time alone in all worlds.
Since I felt like a hermit, I decided that this was the perfect time to create a picture of this card in the major arcana. I can relate to it so much this week. It has a simple meaning. “The Hermit Tarot card suggests that you are in a phase of introspection where you are drawing your attention and focus inward and looking for answers within. You have a strong need to understand, not just at the surface level but to really know why life is the way it is. The Hermit reflects that your consciousness has moved inward and you now realize that the truth and understanding you seek is within yourself and not in the distractions of the outside world. This is a perfect time to take a step back from your day-to-day life and deeply contemplate your motivations, personal principles and values.” I definitely needed time alone to recharge my batteries and gain perspective.
As I was withdrawing from the world and evaluating everything, I decided to create a set that reflected my current feelings. So I looked no further than Collabor88 and Equal10. There are so so many items in this picture that are from this round at C88. I’m not going to go through every item, because this blog would be very very long. BUT I will make a quick mention of Equal10. A friend and designer created these cute whimsical bunny ears with flowers–Eliavah at Equal10. They are so so cute. I knew right away that I had to be a “bad” bunny. I also want to mention romp. My mask is from cubic cherry at romp. Finally the majority of the furniture and my body suit are all available at Collabor88. If you like anything featured in the photo above, please check out my credits below.
Cheers,

As I make my slow pilgrimage through the world, a certain sense of beautiful mystery seems to gather and grow. A. C. Benson
I’ve had a whirl wind of a week with a lot of surprises. First and foremost, I’d like to thank Utopia for adding me to their bloggers group. I was completely taken by surprise and I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity. I hope that I can make Utopia@Design proud. Again, thank you so much for adding me to your blogging family.
Okay, now I have to talk about Collabor88’s birthday bash! As many know, I absolutely adore C88. I’ve been having a love affair with this event, since I started blogging. I look forward to the birthday bash every year. It remains to be one of my favorite events on the grid.
So it is my pleasure to say, this round is ridiculously fabulous. I should just hand over the designers my wallet now. There’s just so many wonderful items that I will be blogging this event a bit this month, but some of my favorite items are from this event. Every year, I find myself wearing things over and over again from the birthday round, so it really isn’t an event to be missed.
The picture above was inspired by Eliavah’s flower hairpin and dress. You can find this beautiful dress at Collabor88. The hairpin is available at Okinawa Summer event. This beautiful pin is called nightbloom. Her dress at collabor88 goes by the name Rafflesia. It’s really lovely. I really wanted to be an elf for a day in this cute little dress. I felt so soft and feminine in this piece. The Okinawa summer event runs until the 31st and you can find this wonderful hairpin there. I have to say that I really love this hairpin and I’m probably going to use it in my hair for another outfit. It’s just so pretty and … I am a sucker for a nice flower. My shoes are at Collabor88. They’re by Pure Poison and they’re called Haley sandals. I really love gladiator type sandals. I have been hoping for awhile that someone would make sandals like these. I will be using these again….shamelessly. I bought sandals like these so long ago, but I can no longer wear them, since they were made pre-mesh, so I was very very very happy to see these. I won’t stop gushing about them–and again you can find these at C88.
Moving right along, there’s so many items in this picture that it deserves two paragraphs…or more :D. My ears are fantasy elf ears and they’re from mandala. I can’t recommend them enough to people. They remain to be some of my favorite items that I use. You can find them at the mainstore. Let’s talk hair for a second. Can we just give little bones a round of applause for her work. If she makes hair, I’m going to buy it. I just hand over my cash willingly and happily. This hair is also available at Collabor88 and is called king. It comes with a styling hud. I have to say styling huds are one of my favorite things that designers create. It gives customers options, when it comes to styling and personal preference. Now onto another company that I use all the time. I’m addicted to them and I have been, since I started. blogging.
On the bottom of the picture, there is an ice cream cone filled with flowers. This is by the wonderful ++half deer++. It’s an older release, but… I really love this item, so we’re including it. It has the appropriate name of Ice Cream flowers. I just want to wear this with every outfit. It’s so dreamy! BUT, the pink and purple crystals in the background, those ARE from this round of collabor88 and.. by …you guessed it–half deer. They go by the name dreamsugar crystal. I knew right away that these deserved to be in a fantasy picture. There’s a bug at the bottom of my screen. It’s from Azoury and called endless butterfly. There are rigged and non rigged versions included. My carriage is from {anc}. Just like half deer, I have so many items from {anc}. I happily pay this company for their products. Putting {anc} together in a photo always creates something truly special. And yes, I’m totally gushing about them. I make no apologies. Totally adore them. This iron carriage can be found at Collabor88 as well.
The flowers are by {anc} and the grass is by Hayabusa Design. I really love grass that sways, like it’s blowing in the wind. Again, {anc} created these star flakes. they’re animated and gorgeous. I found them in my inventory and it’s the first time that I’ve used them. I’m going to use these again too. They just feel special. Mishmish made a baby winged unicorn awhile ago. It’s so cute though. I had to use it. My unicorn is a pet and meant to be worn, but I stole a moment to include her in this picture.
To close this blog, I want to talk about the inspiration for this picture. Really, my inspiration came from {anc}’s carriage and Half Deer’s crystals. They both seemed like something out of a fairy tale. So I knew right away that The Magician was the card for this series. As I started to edit this picture, it became obvious which card the picture should represent. There was just something magical about it. The Magician card in the major arcana means that “the revelations [in your life}  are best applied to the pragmatic and physical aspects, rather then the ephemeral or theoretical.” This is so incredibly significant for me. Some times you go through life and things don’t make sense. Then, life gives you the chance to understand those confusing moments in a practical way–making sense of life.
I’ve made a lot of choices in my life, which turned out to be the right answer for me. Sometimes we have to wander to understand where we are going–or need to go. I’m thankful for my path–with all the smiles and tears. Like that one quote by lady gaga, I like the good days and the bad days, because it means that I’m alive. We make sense of it, when it matters.
Okay that’s my final thought and shopping extravaganza info. There will be more blogs to come covering the Birthday Round of Collabor88, please stay tuned. If you like any of the items featured in the above photo, please check out my credits down below.

The High Priestess

Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming! Joseph B. Wirthlin

 

 

 

Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming! Joseph B. Wirthlin

Memories provide us an opportunity to grow as people, improve, move on, and sometimes to love all over again. They are a part of us–for better or worse. They help to shape us. It can also give us an opportunity to gain insight, wisdom, and knowledge about ourselves, people in general, or even the world. And sometimes they become blurry over time or even become warped.
I’ve  spent the last year, working on my memory. It’s not always easy to remember things. Chronic pain steals my memory at times, leaving me to forget. I’ve picked up the phone to call people who are now long gone. I’ve looked at my friends list expecting to see names that are no longer there or names that I don’t recognize–even though I friended them less than 24 hours ago. So I relish in the ability to retain any of my memories in second life or real life. I think about memory constantly. One day it may improve…. maybe it won’t. What I do know is that pictures help, even in this crazy wacky world.
Yet, when I do remember things, I can evaluate them and gain so much knowledge about myself in the process. Knowing what memories can do led me to the High Priestess card in the major arcana—in a tarot deck. The high priestess represents “Mystery, intuition, inner-knowing, self-trust, spiritual insight, emotional stability, divination, esoteric wisdom/knowledge, things yet to be revealed, your higher-self, spirit guides, discovering your own truth.” I know that a person’s life and memories help a person get to their own truth. It can also be calming at times or heart breaking, but they are always a part of us.
To help make a few of my own summer memories, I went to the Mermaid Cove event. I found this wonderful crown by codex, along with the skirt and blouse by Eliavah. All three of these items are available at the Mermaid Cove event. There’s quite a few items that are absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend this event. If you like anything featured in the above photo, please check out my links below.
Be Kind To One Another
Cheers,

The Devil

The greatest evil is physical pain. Saint Augustine

 

The greatest evil is physical pain. Saint Augustine

I’ve wanted to do a picture depicting a fight with pain. It’s something that a lot of people live with every single day and I am part of the group who deals with pain on a daily basis. There are some seriously strong souls in the world who deal with this struggle every single day. It’s not easy.. In my own personal journey, I’ve learned to really look towards those people who struggle like myself or worse with a high amount of respect. They’ve taught me to be a better person and really how to deal with my own evil demons that I fight every day.

In the major arcana, the devil card represents the negative forces that restrain you. It’s the fears, addictions, and impulses in each of us. We have the power to over come them, but the devil controls us–when we allow him to. Much like this card, pain can control our emotions, when we allow it to. We have the power to breath and take a minute for ourselves. We have the power to over come pain by allowing positivity in our life, recognizing the pain but not giving it the power to control our emotions and behaviors. It’s easy to lash out at people, when you’re in pain. It takes strength to walk away, when people upset you, rather then unleashing your anger on the people around you. The people who are around you will ultimately be the ones that you’ll need on your hardest of days. So you can’t let the devil completely beat you, rather you have to fight its power with your own. And I am lucky that medical intervention may be able to help me fight.

I’m lucky in the sense that I have a chance at beating my pain with surgery. I’m bringing this up because I will be scheduling surgery soon. And I will be away from my blog for a little while. I will inform everyone of that information, as soon as it is available to me. But for now, in the evening, I am usually fighting the good fight against it.

In the past few months or so, my own pain has knocked me down. It has stolen my time. It has stolen my emotions. It has stolen me completely. In the above photo, it represents the evil that is pain. And I am fighting it in a losing battle. The thing about chronic pain is that sometimes you don’t beat it. You just call a draw at the point of exhaustion. Then you wake up again and deal with it all over again. It’s draining, frustrating, and infuriating. I do not wish physical pain on my worst enemy. It’s bigger than I am. It blinds me to reason and steals my voice in the haze of medications. I could never put into words the true evil that pain is. It is indeed a fight with the devil.

Every person fights their own demons. This one is mine. It is second life in which that I can artistically create an image that depicts exactly how I feel. That girl is me.. that skeleton is my own hell on Earth. I know that many, many, many people go through there own battles to include pain. In banding together, we lose the empty room and find others just like ourselves. This picture is dedicated to every person with their own demons who fight them every single day. You are not invisible. And… you’re not fighting alone. My picture doesn’t show the people behind me, fighting alongside me. BUT, they are there. Keep fighting the good fight.

Now to help me fight the good fight, some very wonderful designers created some fantastic things. My skeleton is from a previous gacha by clueless. My dress is by Eliavah, which is available at the crystal heart fair. I waited to blog this for a little while because getting into the event was difficult. I really do love this outfit. My stockings are from Blueberry and my boots are available at !Rebel Hope’s mainstore. Finally, my hair is from stealthic, which goes by the awesome name of Sensual. My pose is available at this round of the Pose Fair by Bauhaus Movement. I can not gush enough about Eliavah’s awesome work and Bauhaus Movement’s sick poses. If you’re interested in any of these items, please check out my credits.

Before I end this, I want people to know that I take drugs in the evening. My pain has increased. So I’m asking everyone to please have patience with me. My thought process is slowed and I’m not always at my best in the evening unfortunately.  Thank you.

Be kind to one another.

Cheers,

Violet xoxo

It doesn't matter if you're black, white, gay, straight, come from different countries, different language... every single person is significant and is meaningful. Michael Franti

This blog post is dedicated to all those who are part of the LGBTQAI community ♥

It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, gay, straight, come from different countries, different language… every single person is significant and is meaningful. Michael Franti

This blog post took me a little longer to do. I haven’t felt very well this month, so I’m just now putting out a blog post about pride. I hope that everyone is having a great Pride month. In world, Pride is currently raising money for the Trevor Project. It’s a great cause. It’s so important that you go, donate, and purchase items at this month’s Pride event inworld. The Trevor project helps kids who are in crisis within the LGBTQ community. They do some really great work and I fully support them. So please get out there and donate.

To help me create this great photo, I teleported two great friends of mine that have been steady rocks for me. I’ve gone through a lot with those two people, so it made sense to include them. Christian is rocking the pride cape like the superhero that he is, which is available at Riot’s mainstore. Me, I’m wearing the group gift from Villena, which is available at Kustom9 and Poette (the gorgeous blond to my left.. not right oops) is staying cool in this romper available at Summer Fest.

I want to go into Summer Fest because I spent so much money there. I almost spent over my uber budget. So I have to say, it is a great event. I bought a lot of items. Almost everything you  see in this photo is from summer fest–the house, compass, surf board, and ice cream machine.. right to the sandals by Eliavah. I really can’t rave enough about this event enough. I basically redecorated my house with all new furniture from Summer Fest. So i have to thank the designers for really creating some very special items. I do wish that men had a few more options though. I’d like to go shopping with my guy friends 😀 . But, there are some great pieces of furniture. Also, this outfit includes items from various events including: Cosmopolitan, Good Vibes, and Kustom9. For more info, please read down below.

Finally, I’d like to go into this quote a little bit. I truly believe in this way of thinking. Everyone is significant and important. I’ve heard people say that they didn’t feel important. Sometimes what you give people isn’t money, or stuff–those things are nice. However, the relationships that we form in the course of our life have a way of impacting the other people around us. The love from friends, family, spouses, and even strangers can change a persons world and outlook on life. So you are important… just by existing in this world, you are meaningful, loved, and needed. The LGBTQ community has endured hardships and scrutiny. So it’s important to appreciate how far the world has come, but continue to fight the good fight. And… I also think it’s important to tell everyone that they matter in this world, because you do.

You matter. You’re important. Things will get better.

/me gives everyone a huge gigantic warm hug, filled with love and care.

The Fool

 

The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven. Robert Downey, Jr.

 

The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven. Robert Downey, Jr.

Opps, it seems that I’ve fallen, while snapping this picture. I was hoping my audience would forgive me for a non stunning posed picture. Everyone makes mistakes, right? Right??? It’s okay though. I’ve forgiven myself and taken this opportunity to laugh at myself.

I’m starting to embrace humor in my pictures. I was chatting with someone one day. They commented on my pictures not being funny or fun. I did some self reflections and realized that they were right. It’s nice to change up your pictures or old habits. You may even learn something new about yourself in the process. It’s never too late to try something new. And I definitely wanted to try something different. Maybe even laugh at myself a little.

But, I could never have been given this opportunity without the help of some very special designers. I visited the vintage fair recently and found this really great set from a company that’s new to me. Kei’s Spot is the creator of this 1950’s inspired bath house. Even though it’s not the exclusive at the vintage fair, it’s still a great piece. Here’s why, many times I look at backdrops and buy them, but they do sit in my inventory. This type of backdrop isn’t really just for pictures. I can actually use this as decor on my land. I love buying something that will double as a photo prop and also use it multiple times for different purposes. I really hope that more companies start to make a backdrops that could double as decor. My picture would never have the same feeling with out Kei’s spot.. so thank you so much for creating this fun product!!

Moving along to my bathing suit, as many people know, I’m having a love affair with Eliavah products. She created this wonderful bathing suit for Frou Frou. I absolutely adore all the options that are available. With the options of a shiny suit, or more of a matte textured suit, I had to try something a bit different. I love this company because I’m always tempted to try new colors, designs, or patterns. There are 33 available options for the swimsuit. that’s a lot of options. The fatpack does include additional options only available with in it. There’s 27 available options. BUT, she also included a hud to change the ribbons as well. So there are a ton of ways to customize your bathing suit. I can’t rave about this company enough, but she definitely works hard and it shows.

Finally, I’d like to talk about my tattoo and hair. I found this hair at equal10 by Doux. It’s not the exclusive event item, but I knew it would be perfect for this photo. My tattoo is from Pichi. I like to throw in tattoos sometimes. It’s a nice change and everyone needs a bit of change sometimes. It’s available at the vintage fair and it is an item exclusive. I really hope that you visit these events on the grid. There are some great products out there.

Well I’m a bit hungry, so that’s all for now. I hope you all have fun shopping.

Be Kind to yourself and others.

Cheers,

Violet

The Lovers

 

 

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit." Khalil Gibran

“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.” Khalil Gibran

I know it’s early for another blog, but what can I say? There’s so much good stuff out right now. I just had to do another post…… you know to validate all my shopping. Seriously, the grid has been hopping with events. It’s a little late in the evening… very late, so this post will be a little short.

Some may have noticed links to music, I include them because music is part of blogging for me. It’s insanely relaxing to blog with music…and I like sharing. I have been on a very big hip hop/R&B kick for the last week or so. In the area that I grew up in, this genre of music was really popular. And I’ve been spending time in real life with some long time friends. We busted out the music and partied with BBQ, one very sunny day. This song reminds me of that weekend.
Now, for my title, it’s still my tarot card series. This picture is inspired by the lovers card. I was also inspired by….cough..cough…cough… The Red Light District event—-not to mention a few other events. But, I have to mention those events, because they were so good. I’m just going to blabber away where everything is from because there are so many of them.
To begin, my shorts are from Eliavah. I found them at equal10, which is a fairly new event. I’ve been to it a few times and I have to say it. I kind of love it. So definitely go to Equal10 and check out Eliavah’s merchandise. Just Because created this tube top with an option of having a ruffle or without, which was perfect for this outfit. The shoes are from Vale Koer which is now out along with the tube top at Collabor88. Now moving along to the male model, he is wearing an outfit by Gabriel at TMD, to include the shirt and pants. His necklace is from Real Evil Industries. I’ve never heard of this company, until now, it’s called Zoom, which created his glasses. His hair is from Doux. It’s called Troy and now on sale at Man Cave.
And finally, the furniture is next. The bed is on sale at The Red Light District and it’s by Krescendo. The lights are from Ariskea and the chair is by second spaces. You can find the chair, and lights at Collabor88–and my tube top. Last, but certainly not least, my backdrop came from a new company called House of Shade, which is working with foxcity. Speaking of which, my pose is from Foxcity.  I highly recommend every item, and event listed.
Whew… that’s a lot of stuff for one post. Thank you, if you’re still reading this. I know it’s a lot of events, but there are some really great things out for sale and a lot of wonderful events. There’s a lot of information in that second paragraph. So you can always check down below at my credits.
Finally..finally finally, this quote is so meaningful to me. I agree so completely. Love. I could say a lot of things about love, but I do need to end this blog in a reasonable amount of time. For me, it shapes my entire world. My whole reason for being here is to love. Love gives us life, honey. And without it, there would be a world of darkness. It’s wonderful to give and receive love in all its lovely forms. So love each other harder. And if you hate someone, love them enough not to do harm. Love is a wonderful emotion and it makes the world go round.
Be kind to one another,
Cheers,
much love
Violet
