Te despertaré

At times we would all love to just go to sleep and wake up when all storms are over, all problems resolved, and all pain is healed. I know I would. People do this in SL all the time; leaving for periods of time when painful things happen, love is not requited or friendships are broken. But although the desire to avoid pain and heartache is natural, it takes more strength to be the one who stays awake, who deals with heartache or the friend who doesn’t care as much about you as you do about him or her, or the betrayal by someone you love. This applies to any life in which one is emotionally invested.

Pastora Soler was a guest on the New Year’s Eve program on TVE last night and she has a new single out that deals with this very thing. After watching her video, full of flowing dresses and locks, I decided to run around my friend’s winter sim to see if I could be that flowing and romantic. I am wearing considerably more clothes than she does in her video, most notably my warm sweater dress from Gabriel and beautiful new jewelry from Maxi Gossamer.

What do you think? Am I music-video ready? You can check out Pastora’s video below the credits.

One of Truth Hawk’s new releases this week, the beautiful Ainsley style, is probably going to be one of my all-time favorites. I also have to mention the loveliness that is Izzie Button’s new Lila skin.

May 2014 be wonderful for you and all your loved ones.

Snowcatcher

My friend Bastion made this fun pose and we tried it out today. We had fun in our matching u.f.o buckle coats from this round of Collabor88.  It was a snowy day so it was the perfect moment for one of my favorite Arcade items, the Engineer Boots from Sleepy Eddy. Also, Truth Hawks is back from a hiatus with this lovely Princess Lea style with a twist. Side buns forever!!!

The Long Winter

February is my least favorite month. It’s that last winter month before spring starts to slowly take over. It’s the shortest month of the year but always feels like the longest. It also happens to be the coldest month of the year where I live, so that doesn’t help. So like it or not, winter is not ready to take its leave yet, and we must find warmth and sunshine in our friends and those we love.

There are some lovely designs available at two of my favorite events in SL this month, Collabor88 and the Men’s Dept. Stewart’s fashion patience was tried to the utmost for this one, but it was oh, so worth it! Stewart’s jacket and sweater are from this round of the Men’s Dept. My skin is yet another beautiful creation from Aida Ewing at Glam Affair, and my colorful accent ring is part of a fun set by Yummy’s Polyester Partridge. If you haven’t checked these events out lately be sure to pencil in a visit!
