Wonder how many did it??

I joined premium membership today. I wonder how many did? I uhm’ed and ahm’ed about it. I had premium membership when I first started SL, but I never wanted to work. I work full time and don’t want to work in SL too. So eventually I didn’t really see the benefit and down graded.

Now, I normally pay rent for a house and just be on my merry way all the time. I log in when I want too, buy linden as I need and do what I want, but then RL gets busy and I don’t feel like logging in and then one day turns into the next and one week turns into the next and bam! I’m SL homeless. I log back in, search for a home, decorate, stay a few weeks and the cycle starts all over again.

Premium I think, will work well for me as I don’t have to log in to pay rent. I now have my own little oasis and it is not that expensive compared to what I spend it SL anyway. So for me, it did make sense and I sort of feel more committed again. How about you?

at my finest

This morning was one of those mornings. I woke up way too early and fell asleep just as I was about to get up. So when I did get up, I was in really still sleeping. So doing the things I had to do in the mornings I was surprised that I actually had time to eat breakfast and water the plant babies. Feeling very happy and relaxed when I know I should really be in a rush, but taking it cos you know… how often are you happy and relaxed in the morning. 

That was until I walked into the office. Not only did I forget to any put jewellery on, I’ve put mascara on only one eye. It also slipped my mind to prepare and bring my lunch (what!!??) and of course my phone was left at home too. On the bright side, I did not put two different shoes on… yup that has happened before. Not only did I put different shoes on the last time, but I was standing at the printer looking at my shoes and was wondering what was off… not even realising! Only much later, after I have been through the office a few times I sat on my chair, and it just hit me… not one of my finest days.

But lets get back to today, I can cope with most of my slip ups today, but my vain self refuse to let me go without mascara on my one eye… It is really noticeable since I have blonde eyelashes and I wear black mascara. I’m not going to do the Cruella look today! I had to slip out and buy myself a new mascara, even though I don’t need it, but I’ll keep this one in my drawer at work for days like these. I need to start covering my bases. This is happening way too often.

Now just to get through the day without my phone… that in itself, is a massive challenge.

The picture doesn’t have much to do with this theme, but hey that’s food I don’t have today. 

bright mornings

late to the party

I know I’m really late to the party, but how good are those new Swallow ears? This is not a sponsored post by the way. I have been wearing Mandala ears for years, but recently I went to RichB to find the cross that I’m wearing on the side of my head and saw that you could buy accessories for Swallow ears. Another awesome thing about these ears is that you can buy (without cost) your skin to perfectly match what you are wearing. I totally recommend. It is super cute!

Lets try again

Late to the party

has anything changed

In my previous post, I said that I’m not sure if I’m back, but I’m going to enjoy this stint while it lasts. I’ve been blogging for years before and did so many events. As a result my inventory ballooned. I had way more than a 100 000 items in my inventory. I always felt so bad deleting stuff. Then I basically stopped blogging and starting shopping – well I shopped while I blogged too.

I decided that I need to be a bit lighter and I spend hours going through my folders and deleting things I can’t wear anymore – because of mesh bodies and faces and just things I have no idea why I have it. I was pretty brutal. Oh the hairstyles I loved! But I will never wear them again because of the 12 year ago texture on them. It was time to let go of those too. I’m back on 37 057 items. This is an amazing feat.

And then I went shopping 😉

I ended up with this outfit and couldn’t take it off for probably two weeks.

Sometimes all I think about is you

The deeds:

Skin: The Skinnery – Antonia / Hair: Doux Christwo / Glasses: The Sugar Garden Smooches Shades / Eyebrows: SB EvoX Avalon Julia Earth Soft Arch / Eyes: WarPaint Kintsugi eyeshadow / Nose ring: Blaise Hinged Septum Ring / Fact Tattoo: Warpaint Possession / Necklace: Amias – Enise / Chest Piercing: .Pekka. Rake piercing (old piece) / Body Tattoo: Dappa – Rou Tattoo / Top and pants: ELEVEN Mini top and Short / Bracelet: RichB Love & Hate bracelet

The actual reason why I can’t take this off is how super cute it makes my butt look – am I right??

Never change a thing

It was fun doing this again. Have a good one!

Back?…probably not

Hi There

Am I back? Probably not. But I am in the mood to write. So here I am. I stopped this blog to start a new RL blog, but that didn’t even last as long as this one did. Looking back on my previous posts are actually quite fun and I can remember ever single emotion I had with almost every post. Love that about it.

Why am I here? I felt like telling you that I’m not really back in SL, but also I am. When I first logged on I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. The first five, six years I was obsessed. Not just mildly obsessed, I mean for real. I ate, dreamt, lived for SL. And then I became sad, and I wallowed in my sadness for years. SL is about making connections and being creative.

For a long time, I thought that I have to do both to be happy in SL. Making connections is something that I really struggled with. I enjoy SL because I can see other people’s creations, create an avi that I enjoy looking at. I can take pictures and play around in Photoshop and just give free reign to my creativity. And only recently realised that I don’t need connections. I’m normally tired after a long nine, ten hour day at my full time job and don’t feel like living up to someone else’s expectations at how often I had to IM them to see how they are doing. I’m normally there to wind down and relax. And the days that I feel like interaction I go to a club and talk to people. I have to be the only person on SL that honestly have no friends in my list and that is okay. I find that freeing where in the past, I would have felt guilty for not saying hi every time I see someone log in.

The place I’m the most active and you can find me, is probably Plurk. Check it out and join me there!
