She would shine

“She was like the sun,
She knew her place in the world –
She would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
She wouldn’t adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”
― Nikki Rowe

This post is all about Bloom by Prism Events. I have been blogging for Prism Events…well, for years. I absolutely love the three events they put on throughout the years. Bloom is all about Spring and this year, with Easter around the corner, we’ve got an abundance of cute Easter themed items, as well. Don’t get too overwhelmed thinking that these items will only work for Spring, though. As you can see by the photo, I’ve created a summer theme using the gorgeous house from Concept that you can acquire at the Arcade. If you want to see more of the house, I did two posts about it earlier this month. You can see those here and here.
I grabbed this hair weeks ago during a Fifty Linden Friday and then yesterday Cynful released silky textures on their Buttoned Tube Top. Knowing Cyn, it’s probably still out so hurry! The rest just kinda fell into place as I was looking around at the different items I’d collected from Bloom. All in all, I’m really pleased with how my photo turned out. I hope it will inspire you to create some wonderful Spring & Summer spots of your own, or at least a cute outfit…cuz these shorts…*bites her lip*…they are sooo cute!!!!

Casa Paradiso Bath

Don’t faint. I know, its a decor only post and I haven’t done one of those in ages. Trust me, you’ll see it again, cuz I plan on posing with this scene, too. Plus, I never said I wouldn’t blog decor. How could I not, I love decorating. I’m so in love with with the CONCEPT} CASA PARADISO set at Arcade. So, not only will you see this scene again, or at least parts of it. You will also see more from that set. So, without further blabbering, I’m going to start working on something else! HA! Bathroom scenes have always been my most challenging, too. So, here I am trying to do another one. Be nice.

Fantastic Finds

Shopping in SL is clearly much different from shopping in RL, but I do my best to mix and match pieces from various brands to create a look that isn’t quite so cookie cutter. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with creating a look based on an entire outfit presented by the designer. Sometimes I really like going through different pieces much like I do in RL. Luckily, I can do this in SL without making quite the same mess. *laughs* You should’ve seen my bedroom back in the day. I mean, you wouldn’t see the floor. I was quite messy, but I knew where the clean clothes were vs the dirty clothes!

N-E-WAY! I fell in love with this new suede and lace skirt from Gaia, but I wasn’t ready for the adorable camisole top that matched it. Of course, I got it. I’m saving that for another look, ok? Lucky for me, Breathe just released these amazing suede boots that really helped me achieve a warm cozy outfit with the perfect pinch of pink!

For the scene, I did something I thought was cute. I took these posters I had from ionic and added my own textures. Well, technically they belong to Lucky Conundrum, as he created them for Burrow Company. I just thought it would be neat if the posters actually advertised something inworld. So, a shoutout and a big thank you to Lucky for allowing me to use his posters for my scene. ♥

let’s love tonight

When, when we came home
Worn to the bones
I told myself, “this could get rough”
And when, when I was off, which happened a lot
You came to me and said, “that’s enough”
Oh I know that this love is pain
But we can’t cut it from out these veins, no
So I’ll hit the lights and you lock the doors
We ain’t leaving this room ’til we bust the mold
Don’t walk away, don’t roll your eyes
They say love is pain,
well darling, let’s hurt tonight
When, when you came home
Worn to the bones
I told myself, “this could be rough”
Oh, I know you’re feeling insane
Tell me something that I can explain,
oh I’ll hit the lights and you lock the doors
Tell me all of the things that you couldn’t before
Don’t walk away, don’t roll your eyes
They say love is pain,
well darling, let’s hurt tonight
If this love is pain,
well darling, let’s hurt,
oh tonight
So you hit the lights and I’ll lock the doors
Let’s say all of the things that we couldn’t before
Won’t walk away, won’t roll my eyes
They say love is pain,
well darling, let’s hurt tonight
If this love is pain,
then honey let’s love tonight

let’s love tonight

Our Lives on Our Terms

Someone posted on Facebook asking how people get past betrayal and learn to trust people again. This wasn’t about a romance, but simply a friendship exposed. It’s exceptionally sad when we come to the realization that a friendship isn’t what we thought it was. The thing is that we can’t control, predict, or fully know what other people will do…we just have to take them at face value. With any luck, we eventually learn who we can trust with what. There’s no one person that I trust with everything, not even my mother in rl.
I tend to close myself off after a betrayal and I think that’s natural, but we really shouldn’t punish ourselves for what someone else did. We have to learn to love regardless of the hate around us…and enjoy our lives on our terms. We need to be prepared to say goodbye to shitty people and eventually we’ll find ourselves surrounded by nothing but the best. Though to be fair, the happier we are, the more jealous our enemies become….and we all have enemies, whether we deserve to or not. *hugs*
