We Rise

“when angels fall, they rise”… By Dr. Linda on the show Lucifer

As you can tell, I’m having this wonderful love affair with this real life show, which is soooo inspiring my photos. I’ve had a lot of fun dressing up as these angels lately. I couldn’t do it without some amazing designers…. AND HAIR FAIR!

Ladies and gentleman, lets talk about some HAIR!! So as you know hair fair opened on the 17th. I’ve been sitting on some amazing AMAZING HAIR. So with further ado, lets talk about this new wig of mine. I am currently wearing hair from Chain. And you can definitely find this wig at HAIR FAIR! The company is new to me, but I can tell you that.. I really do adore their hair. I’ve always loved this hairstyle, but I had issues with it from different companies in the past. Maybe my head is just too big.. who knows. BUT.. Chain did it up right. It had a dutch braid on both sides of the head and then cut off by a band, creating a ponytail in the back. My wonderful and amazing dress is from Rowne and my shoes are from Rebel Gal. I love love love this combo.The shoes and dress are both available at.. yup you guessed it Collabor88. And finally my necklaces and earrings are from LaGyo which is available at Collabor88. Omg.. this round is to die for.. Oh my gosh.. I am so in love with C88. I’m hearting them hard right now. If you notice my rings on my fingers. They’re from yummy and you can find them at ..again Collabor88. So hair fair closes on the first of September and collabor88 ends their round on the 7th. So you have to hurry to get your wigs on and hair fair. Please don’t forget HAIR FAIR supports wigs for kids. This is such a great cause. A portion of the proceeds go to this wonderful charity.

I’m going to make this blog a bit short again, blame it on my need for beauty sleep. If you like any of the items featured above, please check out my credits down below.

Remember…

Be Kind To One Another,

Cheers,

Violet XOXO

Upside down Christmas

As the year comes to a close, many people find themselves looking back in the past. Maybe sometimes, they even see things with new eyes. And I am no exception. I’ve been looking at things differently too.
I’ve been a little obsessed with pictures that can be flipped upside down and viewed as another picture–in another angle. A long time ago, when I was in grade school, I had a teacher put a picture in front of the class and ask… “What do you see in this picture?” Many of us saw a witch, but many people saw another picture, yet both answers were correct. Even this week, I looked at a rock near a pond, but when the picture was flipped upside down, it didn’t look like a rock near a pond. I also googled upside down Christmas trees (who knew this was an actual thing!). This all started my own little project that I’ve been working on for about a week.
Since I was on a kick about upside down pictures, I decided to create my own. Many may see everything falling towards the ceiling, but yet if you flip it right side up…… You may see a girl leaping through the air and about to jump on ….someone, kicking things out of the way–perhaps a loved one being greeted at the door. It’s all about perspective. It’s how we interpret the world around us that truly matters. It’s how we see situations that happen to us. Our view may be entirely different than how others see things. I think that’s an important part of second life–how we view things that happen to us….vs. how others see things. It truly makes a difference. After a year has passed, we have new eyes and a new perspective on the events that passed.
This past year, I’ve had amazing experiences inworld, but I have battled demons in real life. Life is a beautiful thing, because it is always changing. Second life and real life move in cycles. Meaning… demons will be silenced. Amazing experiences come to an end–and then there are only new beginnings. There will be new people and new opportunities.
Despite the hope of the future though, there’s always the shadow of the past to contend with. It can leave bitterness in its wake. Bitterness can be accompanied with fear. It’s like moving to take a step, but putting your foot right back where it was. Fear can stop you literally in your tracks. Bitterness can make you turn away from new people, opportunities, and experiences. I think that’s one of the  hardest things in life, not letting negative emotions rule you. We all have to find ways to overcome the past. There’s no one right or wrong answer. Everything comes in time. The thing about time is that it’s always moving forward… never backwards. And we all will move forward one way or another, so why not silence that fear and bitterness—replace it with hope. We hope for a better tomorrow, because there are bound to be more good moments ahead of us.
So for 2019, we should leave the fear and bitterness behind us, lets drink to hope and love instead. We should move forward to the days ahead of us, because in the end…. time is precious. Lets not waste it on negative emotions, lets party and celebrate all the good things and hopeful new beginnings.
And that girl in the photo falling and yet leaping for a loved one–both are right. Holidays never go as they are “suppose” to. It always leaves us grasping for more into a free fall, yet we’re always grounded by the people… or even furry little animals that love us. Toast to love and hope this New Years. The best part of any story is always love and hope.
Before I end with credit, I need to make a quick mention of some great events. This dress can be found at Collabor88, but you will have to hurry since a new round is soon approaching. My hair and shoes can be found at uber, and my bow choker can be found at the naughty or nice event, check out Eliavah’s mainstore to get the hud. And I have to thank Cuca Designs for this really great backdrop and boxes, they added that special something to my picture of packing up decorations. For further info, please check out my credits.
Happy a safe and very Happy New Year!!
And don’t forget… Be Kind To One Another,
Much Love,
Vi XOXO
