Shameless Dreams

I am not your innocent wonderland.. by me

 

I am not your innocent wonderland… quote by me.

I’d like to give a shout out to all my amazing followers. I hit 4K a few weeks ago. I am truly astonished at how many people follow my work. I can say that I appreciate every like, follow, and award. Truly.. amazing beautiful wonderful and great… I can’t express my gratitude or express how humbled I am. thank you all again ♥♥♥♥

This photoshoot was inspired by a book that I’m currently reading, and music videos listed below. And a peak into that devilish mind of mine…

I am not your innocent wonderland. My dreams are shameless and delicious. Splayed out in a dream there were no limits. Butterflies flew. Only a touch of innocence among flesh. Naked, hungry, and waiting….

🙂 ♥
Stay dirty my friends. And thanks again.

Okay so I have been MIA. My birthday was this month and my friends decided to give me a few surprises, since I had an incredibly rough year. It was a welcomed break, during a tough time. I am grateful for friends and family in all worlds.

Sooooo lets get into the deep discussion that is my picture, just kidding it’s not that serious. Collabor88’s theme this month is dreams. At first I was totally at a loss for ideas, but I dug deep for some inspiration and looked at everything those wonderful designers out there created. I couldn’t help feeling like a naughty alice in wonderland with a hint of innocence. There are so so many designers in this picture. Instead of listing all of them in here.. in this paragraph, I will list them down below. The eccentric work leads to the craving for halloween and all things creative. I have to say.. I was loving this round. It was out of the box and a little different. It got my own creative juices flowing in the end. Everything in this photo is from Collabor88.. right down to my hair.

I won’t go into a big long blog post, but I will get into the credits. Sleep awaits me soon. My pillow is screaming at me

Be Kind To One Another

Cheers,

Violet xoxo

It feels like forever since I wrote my last blog. But here I am, and I am about to talk about one of my favorite events.. Collabor88. Yup, it’s about to come to a close, so you’ll have to hurry to get these items.

This round was one of my favorite rounds. I have a special place in my heart for the desert. Everything this round reminded me of a trip to Nevada that I took.. very long ago. It was the first time.. I went camping. It was the first time that I paddled out to the middle of a lake in a boat. And I got to see the Grand Canyon. And.. it was my first time going to a Native American Reservation. I had a lot of good memories from that trip. Everyone cherishes a memory. That’s just one of mine.

So I have a special place in my heart for events reminding me of this time. Collabor88 closes soon, so you’ll have to get your desert gear before the new round begins. The new round begins on the 8th. You will definitely have to hurry, if you like any of these items. This picture includes so many great second life companies: Phedora, Zenith, Monso, Minimal, Disorderly, Yokai, Half Deer, Random Matter, Kalopsia, and Jian. Whew, there’s a lot of companies in this picture. They all did a fantastic job though. And just look at those adorable puppies. I have ALWAYS wanted a lab, so this purchase was so easy to make. I will probably rez them all the time at my house. They are too cute for words. Also The Arcade just opened. This cute cat playing with a cherry from an ice cream cone is from DISORDERLY. from a gacha machine at The Arcade. I absolutely love it. All these cute little animals makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I was talking to a friend inworld. She helped me to remember going to a reservation and feeling an intense calm wash over me. It’s just not something you forget. Then you add this round of collabor88 (which is about to close), it put a smile on my face.. that is for sure. The bright colors, bohemian treasures, wonderful furniture, and cute adorable animals, truly they are worth checking out before the new round begins. If you haven’t gone, please go before it closes. Don’t miss out.. think of this as last call .. like in a bar, but for an event. There were just so many great products this round. Hurry and pick up those last few items.

Normally, I have a serious, thoughtful and insightful quote. I opted for a silly quote from one of my favorite comedians instead… may he rest in peace. Sometimes you just need a little humor in your life. And I definitely need a good laugh. Who doesn’t? Funny moments and happy memories are truly the great parts of life.

You will have to look down below for credits. I hope you all see something that reminds you of a happy memory or find something that makes you laugh.

Be Kind To One Another

cheers,

Violet XOXO

I’m Kind Of A Big Deal….. To My Cats.

We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. Ellen DeGeneres

 

We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. Ellen DeGeneres

As I sit here groggy and typing up this blogs, I thought about life and what I want to contribute to it—with my blogging platform. I have a responsibility to try and contribute to kindness, compassion, joy, and laughter with this blog. I’ve always believed that people who speak in a public setting have this responsibility. And really…. we all need to laugh sometimes. It’s part of the reason that I find uplifting, inspiring, and thoughtful quotes from people who are wise. I’ve read in many profiles the question of why people quote others. And I can only answer for myself. I quote others who lived through harder things in life. I quote those smarter than me or more compassionate. Not only to put a positive thought out into the world, but also to remind me too. Sometimes when you’re going through the hard stuff in any world, it’s nice to read inspirational words to remind you that humanity does exist.
Speaking of humanity and compassion, it leads me right into the event that just opened. HAIR FAIR!!! It remains one of my favorite events on the grid. I always find new hair that I like and I always find some company that I’ve never bought from–which you will see in a future blog post. I love this event because it supports a wonderful cause. Designers always produce some amazing hair. I really enjoyed wandering around Hair Fair. In the next few blogs, you will be seeing a few of my favorite hairs on sale….even in this post! My hair is from Clawtooth and I adore it! I hope you will too!
I also included a few items from Collabor88. You will definitely have to hurry, if you want either the decor or the clothes. My shoes are from GOS. My dress is from Le Fil Casse. The decor is all from collabor88–the backdrop, lamp, room divider, frame, and pink flower. You’ll have to hurry, if you want any of these items though because collabor88 has only a little bit of time left. The new round opens on the 8th of October. You’ll have to hurry for those last few important items.
Okay my wonderful followers, I have to end this blog a little earlier than usual. You’ll have to stick with me for the next few blog posts to see the great creations from the hair creators, participating in hair fair.
As always, be kind to one another.
Cheers,
Violet xoxo

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
