Kissed by a rose…

Kissed by a rose...

I guess it’s pretty obvious I was inspired by roses today… With Valentine’s Day coming up, I felt like my blog could use some romantic elements. And let’s be honest… Nothing beats a beautiful bouquet of red roses! Okay, chocolates are very nice too.

But the main reason for this post is to show of Belleza’s new Celeste skin, which is out now at Uber. I already used her for my previous blogpost, but I felt she should have a close up as well. Celeste comes in Pale, Medium and Sunkissed tones and there are 10 different make-ups to be had. The skins all fit the Celestial theme of this month’s round, really well. Be sure to check out Celeste. She’s very beautiful!

(After finishing this collage, I realized I used the wrong brow color in one of the close ups! Oops!)

Also, a new round of Enchantment has begun on the 1st. The theme is ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Some people might disagree with me, but I really like how Enchantment makes you visit every designer’s store. I noticed that I bought from some of the designers before, but that I had never actually been to their store. This pretty necklace is from May’s Soul and is one of the prizes you can get with a full stampcard. For more information about this event, check out the website here.

I miss you most of all, when autumn leaves start to fall…

I miss you most of all, when autumn leaves start to fall...

Hi all!

So, I’ve been very busy buying a house in RL. Which is of course super exciting, but there’s so much to do! I’m having my new home built for me, so I get to pick out everything. But by everything, I mean EVERYTHING! From the wiring of the house to the kitchen cabinets. It’s really overwhelming and takes a lot of time, but it’s so much fun too! I’m just so happy I can’t afford to build a mansion. 😉

Anyway… Like I promised in last week’s blog, I was gonna do a close up of the gorgeous new skin ‘Grace’ from Belleza. She comes in all skintones and she’s just so pretty! Claudia was always my favorite, but I think I have a new one now. I love the freckles that come with it. In every pack there are two freckle options, hairbases for every hair color, matte or glossy lips and blush. I decided to go with this skin, because of the autumn-y lips. You can look at all the make up variations in the second picture. It’s unedited, so you’ll know exactly what it looks like inworld.
Grace is out at Belleza’s mainstore. ♥

Also, the beautiful necklace I’m wearing in the first picture is from LaGyo and can be found at November’s Fameshed round. Fameshed opened up two days ago and has some really nice stuff out again. This Hamsa necklace is part of a set and you can choose between gold, silver and black! As you can see, the necklace is very detailed and beautiful. You should definitely check this set out!

Have fun!

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

If I just lay here... Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

This actually wasn’t supposed to be a blog post. The picture was just meant to be a way of expressing how I’ve been feeling these past few weeks. But then i thought, isn’t that what a blog is for too? So here I am…
The song that inspired me to do this picture is one of my favorite songs. Sometimes I just wanna hit pause and forget about the world for a while. Especially these last few weeks, if not months. The reason is I’m moving in RL. Which means I’ve been living between boxes for weeks now. But it’s not just about my home being a war-zone. I’m moving away from the area I grew up in. The place where I’ve lived all my life. To me, that’s very scary. I’m moving 200 km away from home, which might not sound like much to some, but to me it’s a world away from my family and friends. I’m very attached to my own little world, my home. Probably more than most people. And the thought of making some other place my ‘home’ just gives me nightmares. Actual nightmares.
Despite all my fears and doubts, I do realize it’s a new beginning. I’m gonna meet new people and make new friends. I’m probably getting a new job and I might even go back to school. Plus, I have an excuse to shop for home decor stuff! So… I’m trying my best to stay positive and strong. Because every end is a new beginning… Right?

I’m also taking this opportunity to tell everyone that the ‘big move’ is scheduled in three weeks. After that, I should have more time to finally *really* get my blog going. Thanks everyone, for your patience.
