Setting Sail

Seek opportunity, not security.

A boat in a harbor is safe, but in time it’s bottom will rot.

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr

This is the time of year when everyone is reflecting on the events of last year, and the changes they want to make for this year. Well maybe I’m a bit late in doing it. My excuse, I was on holiday and really, really enjoyed it, but as all things in life, holidays end and life has gone back to reality. This means, it’s time to concentrate on today and the new year. Reminiscing about 2013, there were two major lows for me, which I don’t really want to discuss as it’s the past. These lows made me focus on more positive things in my life, one of which were my blog and it went from strength to strength. Thank you so much for all your support guys!

I read the quote above, and realized that even though my blog is doing well at the moment, I need to set sail and try new things with it. I need to learn more techniques photography wise and this year, I really, really want to do more writing. This was my goal for last year too, and looking back, I think I have grown, but mostly in the photography area and not so much in writing.

I’m excited about this year, with all it’s challenges and all the new things I’m about to learn. It’s already a great start! Here’s to 2014!

Be Your Idol

Be Your Idol

One more bloggers meme! This was an interesting one, I hope I got it right! Naminaeko Resident started this one on her  The Rosie Posie blog. We all have idols, mine is not necessarily singer, but I decided to keep this to a singer theme. So  I did P!nk!

    • Idol name: P!nk
    • Picture: 

23

Why did you choose this person?  To be perfectly honest, I am extremely sexist when it come to music. I can not listen to more than two songs back to back from a female singer. She can be absolutely amazing, but it needs to be diluted with a male voice. But seeing that I am female and I need to dress my avatar like my idol, I choose Pink after a lot of consideration. Why? because I can actually listen to two of her songs back to back.

Poison

I read to much, or is there a thing as reading too much? Maybe I interpret things differently then intended. So I found this in a book: ‘You need poison if you’re going to grow roses’. ‘Oh,’ I told her. ‘I’m not sure, I’m afraid, really, of those kinds of poisons.’… ‘Well,’ she said, shaking her head, ‘you can’t grow anything without poisons.’ – Be Mine – Laura Kasischke.

Roses are red and so are the new top from Ducknipple, which is a hunt item, and I combined it with a leather pants from Spirit Store. Hope you like 😀

Name?

I know this has been blogged before, but I think this is still an interesting topic. What made you decide on your Second Life name? I had this conversation earlier today and there are so many reasons. I didn’t think that I would even log on a second time, so I thought about my first name and my last name, which I had to choose from a set list, but added the 500 randomly.I think we should start a meme about how you decided on your name. Who’s up for it?

My look for the day is mostly from !Admiral Spicy!  I liked the 3/4 jeans with the rolled cuffs. I was also looking for a sexy top to wear with it, when I saw this lovely top instore. I recently bought Lola Tango’s but with this top it looks like you are wearing it, without actually wearing it. It’s also a great buy for only 99L. And then of course, my new N-core shoes.. yes I’m still wearing it.  At this stage, I will even bath with it – with my feet hanging out of the bath of course, just so I can look at them all the time.

Fan-blog-tastic!

I stumbled upon blogging as I was always hungry for something new and different to wear. I treasure my individuality and  don’t mind being a trend setter (the vanity!); well that and I had way too much time on my hands… and my (currently very low) weekly allowance,which is still a tender topic.

Most blogs I visited and still visit are about Second Life fashion and style, and there are pretty weird and wonderful things out there. But there are also those that feature tutorials – we all need some grey stuff exercise once in a while to better ourselves. And then my favorite, the stories. I would love to be able to blog a story  one day. But with my writing skill that may be a very distant dream!

I have learned alot from blogs and most of what I’m doing today was from what I have learned there. I can list my favorite blogs if you are interested and they are (was hard to keep them to only 5):

1. http://nienorsstyle.wordpress.com

2. http://bolloblog.wordpress.com

3. http://wornclothes.wordpress.com

4. http://inslomniac.wordpress.com

5. http://strawberrysingh.com

This made me wonder, which blogs do you like?  I’d like to invite you to list your favorite blogs in comments.  But before you do, look at the outfit below, I picked up the pants at Coco Designs and the top at the Whore Couture Fair. The tattoo is from Wounded, who also a have lots of mesh clothing as well clothes with Lola appliers –  go and have a look! Credits below.

Unimportant Disasters

Have you ever noticed that when you go through a break up, or have stressors in real live that you tend to do more shopping Inworld? It’s like filling a void – way better than stuffing your face. At least I wouldn’t get fat and broke, but just broke. I normally have a weekly budget for Second Live and it’s ample. No point in having a Second Life just to admire stuff and not buy them – that may explain my huge inventory, which I tried to clear, but that, is a topic for another day.

I am a self professed shopaholic and not even ashamed of it.  Day before yesterday I was dancing at Ambrosia Night club to Sideshow Khoas’s chaos ( I laughed so much) when I decided that today would be a good day to go shopping for new dance animations. To my shock and horror I didn’t have enough lindens and I still had to survive to next Friday (keep in mind it was only Sunday)!

So what does a girl do in desperate times? Jump on all 7 of her alts (Calm down I don’t use them!) and pay all their lindens over to her main account. I’m smiling, disaster was avoided! Now when you see me shaking my pixels, it’s to brand new animations. Who said blondes aren’t clever 😉

On the blonde note, for this post I was wearing platinum blonde from Chemistry (love that name, makes me feel special, warm and fuzzy) and my top is from ryvolter.  It is available in different colors  to cater to everyone’s taste.

Still Snowing

Since it is still snowing in a big part of the world, including my sim, I decided to show you the wonderful jacket from Legal Insanity. The jacket comes in 4 colors and each color has 4 colors shirts, also you can wear the jacket without the shirt. And while you unpack – wear/add the box instead of unpacking it to the floor – it’s fun to play the guitar while unpacking!

Morgan, a good friend, also suggested I buy the booties I’m wearing from Just Design. I got so much more than I expected. It has 3 options and it comes in various colors. You can wear it as I am, or add socks which makes it a mid boot or the third option, high boot. Enjoy the snow and happy shopping.
