We Rise

 

"when angels fall, they rise"... By Dr. Linda on the show Lucifer

“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

Fall From Grace

There are so many wonderful events all coming out right now. I’ve been a busy bee lately, setting up this wonderful set and having a lot of fun. So I’m not going to procrastinate… I  will get into what everyone wants to know… where did you get xyz.

My whole set, except for the pose is from one of my favorite events in August.. You guessed it. Collabor88’s birthday bash. I love love love this event. I really can’t gush about it enough. As I write this, I still have things to buy from this event–that is just how good it is this round. There are many many many items in this photos, so I’m going to leave it to the credits. If you see something that you just have to have, please look at my credits down below.

This blog is a little short. But I’m getting in the swing of things. And I have another event to talk about.. which is the wonderful hair fair. It opened and … I have some hair from a not so well known company or maybe it wasn’t well known to me :). But I am really excited to share with you my latest haul. As you guessed already, I’ve got some more wonderful items from Collabor88 to share with you and even a steamy pose from this latest round of pose fair. I want to say the theme of stardust may be one of my favorite themes so far with all the birthday bashes. I bought a lot of stuff from this Collabor88 round. It’s really a wonderful round, if you get a chance, check it out with a friend.

I want to take a brief moment and talk about this photo. I’m a big fan of the show Lucifer. Okay I’m totally addicted to it. I may have bought some books that have similar characters. Anyway…. when I saw these really these gorgeous wings from Yokai.. I bought them right away and knew exactly what I was going to do with them. And I saw this quote and new that it was perfect. Hopefully, you find a little bit of sinfulness at pose fair, but that’s for another blog and for another time.

I Fall Apart

 

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy. Jim Rohn

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy. Jim Rohn

I’ve been away and taking an unauthorized hiatus. I needed a break from blogging simply. I also wanted to do something just for me. Some may not know, but I got my first homestead. I always wanted one and I decided to get one …just for a little while. I threw a party and booked the dj. The music was gorgeous and my friend Kas did a lovely job. All the grass is planted and the furniture is in place. I get to enjoy it a little bit, before I have to let it go.
I never wanted a club or a rp sim, but I wanted to create a space based off of speakeasies. Ever since I was young, I’ve always loved them. I loved the idea of private clubs that had to be spoken about in a hush hush manner. Speakeasies were known for organized crime, celebrities, and bad behavior all around. And who doesn’t want to pretend to be a little bad from time to time, even for a photo.
I know there was some confusion over my land lately. Some may have thought that I was bringing in dj’s on a regular basis and wanted to fill the sim with as many people as possible, but due to my rl schedule that is unfortunately not possible. I am also keeping this sim for only a short time. It is not public. It is by invite only. The reason being, I did not want to invite a ton of people, just to let everyone down, when it does close down. It was a space made for friends …and friends of friends. It is a home and a place for those close to me, as well as their friends. I’m sorry for this confusion. But it is not a regular club with events. I’m sorry to everyone. I do apologize. I also want to add that a homestead was on my sl bucket list (no I’m not leaving). But there are things that I have always wanted to do inworld. I had an opportunity to do so and I took it. We all have dreams that are realistic and attainable… this one was mine. Again, I am sorry for the confusion.
Now that this business is over with, I’d like to discuss shopping. this month… collabor88, kustom9, and the whore couture fair. I will be covering all of these wonderful places. There’s some really great shopping out there right now. The wonderful dress, shoes, and even hair are all available at Collabor88. This round is spectacular. I really don’t want to change out of this dress. It’s by Rowne and available at collabor88. My hair is from Lamb, and my shoes are from……anxiety. Whatttt? Yeah, I was surprised too, but I really like these spiky heels. All of the above is available at Collabor88. For further details, please check out my credits below.
Before I go,  I want to talk a little bit about the quote above. ” The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” by Jim Rohn. I deal with building walls and not wanting to knock them down. Sometimes… you only hurt yourself in the end. Even if you need that wall, don’t ever fear knocking it down, when you’re done with it. Emotional walls protect us, but they also prevent us from being happy–doesn’t matter if it’s sl or rl. That’s my food for thought.
As always, be kind to one another,
Cheers,
Violet xoxo

The Sun

 

 

Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.  Tryon Edwards

Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven. Tryon Edwards

I’ve been meaning to blog for a few days now, but I spent some time building this set and dealing with some real life health issues. BUT today is the day! I woke up to feeling as bright and sunny as this picture. So I knew it was time to edit this photo of myself and a friend of mine.

Because my time in second life is sometimes very chaotic, I always contemplate the time spent away and together with the people around me. When I came across this quote, I knew that it was perfect. It’s exactly how I feel. It’s always sad to have to spent time away, but it’s always such a joy to come together.

I was able to do a photo shoot with a good friend of mine Cuore. She owns a pose company called Cuca Designs. Her poses range from sweet couple poses to the naughtier side of things. I highly recommend her poses, if you enjoy taking those types of photos. She’s also a cool chick. Don’t cross her though. She has claws. I saw them and everything. Okay, okay, okay, okay, I didn’t see her claws, but she did tell me about them. If you’re interested in her poses, please check out Cuca Designs.

Moving along, I chose this particular scene, because I love the beach. I love the feeling of sand between my toes and the ocean sea breeze, sweeping through my hair. I’ve had so many fond real life memories of enjoying myself at the beach. I just had to create a photo, depicting fun in the sun. But you can’t go to the beach alone, you always have to bring a friend. It’s like a rule or something. Alright, it’s not a rule, but I always like having someone along for the ride. And my friend decided to come along with me. I’m really thankful for the time that we shared. Just like real life, I now have the memory of taking this wonderful picture.

Sometimes it’s really hard to move past things. And long ago, I had made a decision not to take pictures with other people in my blog. But sometimes, you change your mind or life changes your mind. In this case, it was my friends who changed my mind. You see this world can really bring joy to people in the simplest of ways. And who am I to deny someone a pleasant memory and a really good time? Or even to allow myself to have fun and make memories? I knew that taking this photo would do just that. Ultimately, I didn’t want my stubbornness to stop me from enjoying myself in this world.

Life can really make you want to hide away. We all go through things that effect us. And I won’t lie. My experiences have made me seek a hiding place. But you can’t hide forever. If you wear your heart on your sleeve, it can be even harder. I’ve gone through a lot in the last few months and I wanted to hide away. I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I didn’t want to interact with people in any world. It’s funny how life works though. When you don’t want that interaction, the universe will throw those opportunities at you–almost laughing while it does. In short, this picture means a lot to me.

Sometimes heart break can make you close yourself off.  I’ve done it in all worlds. But I can’t do that…not now, especially now. When you go through rough things in any world, sometimes you need people around you. They help heal you. They mend the broken parts. Friends can do that for you. Pain does break me. But it didn’t break me that day. So today, I saw the sun.

In the major arcana, the sun card is an image of optimism and fulfilment, the dawn that follows the darkest night. Having struggled through the shadow sides you now know yourself and know where you are heading, and the sun illuminates your path. My personal deck has a picture of a child naked. He’s free with nothing to hide. And neither do I… So I will speak of the darkest nights of pain or the burden it places on me. But the sun does shine, after the hardest days. Second life helps me to see the sun with a friend, even if I don’t get to go to the beach this summer. In a way, I already did. And I even had great company too.

On that note, I really want to thank a specific designer who reached out to me. I adore this designer and their creations. My wallet weeps every time I see something by them, because I am bound to buy it. I was going through a really dark day and I had a designer reach out to me. They gave me a virtual hug, which made me tear up. Thank you ++half dear++

In that sun card like the child, I have nothing to hide. I miss people sometimes. I miss the way things use to be. I miss a lot of things in second life and real life. But I know that the sun will shine again. The clouds will part, if you let them. You live. You learn. You make mistakes. But mistakes don’t define who you are or who you will become. I would never have learned those lessons without the friends that I have today. I’m very thankful in a lot of ways for my sl world.

And finally, I can talk about this whole fabulous set. My bikini top is from Erratic and available at Collabor88. You have to hurry though. This round will be ending soon. Cuore’s bra and panties is from one of my favorite events Uber. It’s also by one of my favorite designers (and yes I do have many favorites), Mossu. I’m totally addicted and in love. The jewels are fantastic. And also another favorite event of mine opened up, The Arcade!!! The umbrella and the inner tube are both from Astralia and they’re both gacha prizes. So head on over and try your luck at the machines!! If you like any of the above products above, please see my credits down below.

Much love,

Violet XOXO
