So I normally don’t do a double post, but well I was a bit busy in the month of September. I haven’t really been online much in the last two weeks. But sometimes, you have battles you have to face in life and I am no exception. So I had to step away.. handle my life and come back with new eyes.

The above two photos were again inspired by a series called guild hunter. I am very addicted to it. After many years of not really reading much, I’ve stepped back into eating books. I fell in love with so many of the characters. I will admit those angel characters are seeping through to my sl.

Any way, I digress. Collabor88, Kustom9, and Uber have all been open and running. I highly recommend these three events. They are completely fantastic. I hope you all find something that you really like. I have to make a quick note about my sexy shorts by Eliavah… they are fantastically dirty and I like it. My hot skull heels are by Utopia and perfect for a creepy start to October. I hope you all enjoy these items as much as I do. Truly wonderful pieces.

Okay I am off to that great wonderful pillow. I hope you grab a friend and shop to your hearts content.

As always, be kind to one another.

Cheers,

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival. Winston Churchill

This month has just flown by. Today is the last day of the first month in the new year. It has started with challenges, unexpected sad surprises, and a search for a hope. Or at least.. that’s the beginning of my new year. But as they say…life is a journey. From every hardship and life’s hard lessons, we gain strength and new inspiration. Dare I say it.. we even find strength from within and hope. Life is definitely a journey… so is second life.
I was reminded to practice self love in the midst of life whirling around me. I felt like a scene directly out of Lucifer, as he escapes a mental institution and all hell breaks loose. But in the end, he got out unscathed. Life is kind of like that at times, you see everything go up in flames, but somehow things do work out. It’s surviving and sometimes.. if all you can do is survive, well honey.. you’ve done a great job.
I’ve been away from blogging due to some family things that have gone on in my real life. I had a friend whose house almost burned down today. And I had a very tragic loss for my family..not a death, but a loss nevertheless. So my blogging took a very back seat to tending to life swirling around me. I’ve also gone through my own hurdles. I’ve leaned on people who are close to me to get through this month of insanity.
And I had a friend remind me about self love. She reminded me that it’s okay to take care of yourself, if things just get to be too much. Even in a virtual world, it is so important to step away from things that become too much dot com. And things were definitely too much this month. So I stepped away. I danced the night away virtually with friends. I went shopping. I watched funny stand up shows on netflix and I found my laughter despite the chaos. It’s important to laugh and smile. It really is the most healing thing that you can do for yourself. I also found my voice.
Sometimes distraction can also be a wonderful tool in self love–doing things that you enjoy. We all know that a good photography contest is just the ticket. There’s a sim called valium and they are holding one really great contest. All you have to do is visit their sim, take a photo, and enter it. You must be a member of the sim, be clothed, enter the photo in their flickr pool, and include the LM–as well as the proper labels. Details can be found here valium
I love the beauty of this sim, and knew right away what I wanted to wear. My outfit is from Collabor88. It’s by zenith and completely cozy. My hair is also from collabor88 and by Foxy. My completely fabulous boots are from Utopia. They have just been released in the store and in the marketplace. I really love them. I so want to wear them all the time with all my cozy outfits. You will have to hurry though to Collabor88 for the dress jacket combo. There will be a new round starting February 8th and the contest at Valium ends February 3rd. So get out there and do some shopping and enter that contest.
As always, Be Kind To One Another,
Cheers,
Violet XOXO
