Crisis Of Confidence

Crisis Of Confidence (2)

This week I have had a major crisis of confidence. Those of you that follow and read my blog will see there have been no posts for several days. This is because I appear to have lost the ability to take a half decent photo.

This happened to me once before, last year, and I had some advice from some very dear friends of mine telling me I should take a break, then come back to it after a while. At that time it worked. This time it has taken me a while.

It has made me wonder if I should give up with my blog and photography. I’ve done some real soul searching, and I decided that I should only give up if I don’t want to get any better. So as I strive to learn how to take better pictures, I am continuing as I did before. Besides, I don’t do anything else in my Second Life, so If I did give up, I would have no reason to come here.

That plus the fact I love telling you about all the awesome goodies available to you…..

Crisis Of Confidence

First up today I have this gorgeous Top and Pants from Haus of Ito. The Kate top and Masey pants both come in fits for Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus and Maitreya. Both come in 7 colours plus gold or silver options for the metal bits. You can get these now until 29th March at the Level Up event.

Calling Occupants….

venus_008

In your mind you have capacities you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think
Upon the recitation we’re about to sing

Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

You’ve been observing our earth
And we’d like to make a contact with you
We are your friends

Broken

broken

She used to be someone you could depend on
To brighten up your coldest winter day
But the one she leaned upon
Let her down, now has moved on
And morning brings another empty day
Now she’s only a broken down angel
She’s only a bird that’s broke her wing
She’s only someone, someone who’s gone wrong
She’s only a child that’s lost her way

She used to be a girl of simple pleasures
A breath of spring to chase your blues away
But now she bears a cross, for a love that she has lost
No sunshine in her life just clouds of grey
Now she’s only a broken down angel
She’s only a bird that’s broke her wing
She’s only someone, someone who’s gone wrong
She’s only a child that’s lost her way

I’ve called the post ‘Broken’ and the lyrics are from an old favourite song of mine, ‘Broken Down Angel’ sung by Nazareth. I think it goes well with the theme!

Let Your Heart Guide You

let-your-heart-lead-you_001

I made my first blog post in a couple of weeks yesterday and I found it a nice diversion, so to that end, here is another one…..

Sl has been my saviour this week. I have found myself bereft and lonely in my rl. When suddenly someone you love is no longer there, the house feels so empty and everything feels kind of surreal. Like you are awake but walking around in a dream like state. And, while I have been busy trying to make practical arrangements and dealing with the awful red tape issues we have to deal with in England when someone passes (which is another story I will spare you from!), I have found myself with not a lot else to do. I was sure I would need a long break from my blog and sl in general, but honestly, it has helped me. I’ve been able to log on and chat to some friends, and I have found it a comfort to do so.

I would like to thank everyone who has sent their best wishes to me, and those of you who have taken the time to chat with me. You truly have helped and I have drawn a great deal of comfort from it. Thank you.

let-your-heart-lead-you_004

My hair is the latest offering from Nita Bracken of Tameless. This style is called Dane and it comes in a whole host of different colours. This cute short undercut style is available now at the latest round of Hairology which opens today.

My shoes are a mainstore release from Glamistry. These are the Lilium heels. They come in fits for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya and there are several colours available.

My beautifully awesome eye makeup is from Vengeful Threads, its the offering at The Makeover Room. This lovely makeup is the Mariposa Eye Makeup and it comes in both Omega and Catwa appliers, and tattoo layers for classic heads. There are five colours available.

The cute necklace is from !IT! Indulge Tempatation and is available at this round of Swank Events. There are 6 different colour huds to choose, I’m wearing from Hud no 6. Each hud allows you to change the colour and all aspects of the necklace and resize as required.

My new skin is from Atelier Pepe and I picked this up from this round of Uber. This is Carol in spring tone Catwa applier, it comes in a brow and non brow version. If you visit the mainstore you can also pick up appliers for mesh bodies and the vista hands. I’m wearing the no brow version.
