brainstorming

so i have this idea….

it’s an idea that has been festering around in this brain o’ mine for a little while. a kind of a big idea, or maybe i should say… an ambitious idea. something i’m not even 100% sure i can handle or pull off.

brainstorming

but i’m still sitting && stewing on it, nonetheless.

these kinds of ideas don’t pop into my head very often, i’m usually a pretty realistic kinda person. i know my limits, i know what i’m capable of, and while i like pushing myself in different directions… i also won’t take on things i know i simply *cannot* do.

then there are times like this where i start to think idk, maybe i *can* and it throws me for a loop. i start envisioning things, putting thought towards what it would all take, and while it can feel exhausting.. it’s in a good way. if that makes sense.

i have this sort of project in mind, an *exhausting* one, and while i’m not sure if it’ll ever see the light of day.. i’m still thinking about it. have been thinking about it for a few weeks now. and i feel like every single time i sit down to my computer, it’s on my mind. i might try it out (and heaven help me if i do), but even if i don’t… i think i could do it, if i tried hard enough. i’d definitely need help, lots && lots of help, but the attempt alone could be fun.. just gotta get it all out of the *brainstorming* stage, first. and that in and of itself is a hurdle!

daffodil

if you’ve followed this blog for a little while, you may remember that april as a whole is a.. hard time of the year, for me. and as march edges close to the end (and can we just talk about how *fast* march has gone by? my god!), i’m feeling.. emotional? i suppose. not anxious or even apprehensive, but just very attuned to my emotions. granted, they’re not the most fantastical emotions, but i’m very much feeling them and i’m letting myself feel them.

so i took a pic. because that’s what i do. i’m not the most talented content creator out there && i’m *absolutely* not an artist in any sense of the word, but what i feel i can let the creative juices flow all over is takin’ snapshots inworld. so i took one, full of symbols and meaning and yadda yadda. i don’t think anyone else will understand the symbolism the way i do and i’m okay with that (but if you’re really curious, you’re welcome to ask ♥). it just felt good to put these feelings into something i can say i’m proud of. having an outlet like that.. even if it’s as simple as putting something together that has no meaning for anyone else other than me… is a good way to deal with it all, i think.

daffodil

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

~William Wordsworth

taste my rainbow

suggestive title is suggestive. 😉

but there’s a good reason for it!

taste my rainbow

and when i say “good”, i really mean.. naked. there is a naked reason for it.

you know, when i first started blogging in sl.. in fact, my very first fashion blog post was a rather racy outfit that included a short skirt, a see-through top && nipple pasties… but yes, when i first started blogging, i was more… free shall we say with the looks i did. and then the longer i blogged, well.. i didn’t become *conservative*, but the posts on my old fashion blog that included, say, my bare nipples are few ‘n’ far between.

lately, though? i dunno, i’m feeling more comfortable in my own skin — and yes, that means both sl && rl. i feel like i’m more apt to take a snap in the buff these days. i mean, not counting the pictures on my own flickr stream where i’m nakie, but i’m on other flickr streams in the nude. …hell, it’s more than once, even.

it’s liberating, i have to say. and i can still tell myself that it’s tasteful because i’m not doin’ anything pornographic, i’m just naked. naked in new rainbow hair ‘n’ heels and feeling fantastic, thank you very much.

who knew that new colors from one of my favorite hair designers would inspire a *nude* photo? suppose that says a lot about how my mind works!

#selfie

after we go to the bathroom, can we go smoke a cigarette?
i really need one
but first,
LET ME TAKE A SELFIE

#selfie

so i have an excuse for this particular round of vanity — i have a new skin. and if you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, then you will know that i’ve *lived* in pink fuel‘s alyx skin pretty much since skin fair last year (which was around this time, too!). alyx just… is pretty much perfect. i loved the face, i loved the lips, i loved the makeup options, and lately.. since i’ve grown accustomed to wearing crazy colored hair, i loved the option of having a browless skin to layer colored eyebrow tattoos over.

needless to say, it had to be an *exceptional* skin imho for me to wanna change. and mochi killed me with this teaser of hew newest skin, sora that i put my beloved alyx on the back burner.

it’s eeeeeeeeeeeeverything. it is giving me LIFE. i am so in love with everything about this face, but most importantly, it’s those lovely pastel brows that i am enamored with. they’re the perfect shades && i love that they’re on the skin itself, because i can fill up all five makeup layers *so* fast if i have to wear my brows there too~

i’m rarely apologetic about my bouts of vanity, but this time? sorry, SO not sorry. i’m lovin’ my face today and i just wanna stare at it.

feel free to listen to this while you’re staring at my face, too! ;p

can’t stop texting

so there’s this cell phone set out @ the mens dept from le primitif that pretty much errybody in my sl circle of family && friends has picked up.

phone obsessed

and when i say errybody, i mean errybody.

tea party in the woods

heyyy everybody!

i’m not dead!

yaaaaaay!!

i have been super busy though, and a little burnt out on second life… so i decided a bit of a break was in order. but it wasn’t anything serious && taking a break is definitely a good thing, ’cause it leaves you feeling… renewed all over again when you return. everything is fun and exciting once more! and of course, you feel completely out of the loop when it comes to the latest ‘n’ greatest on the grid, but thankfully i have friends and blogs to go to when i’m feeling lost~

and naturally, things just fall right back into place after you’re away… like, for me, taking random snapshots with my girls..

three pretty princesses

we’re pretty, pretty princesses. :3 who just happen to be having a tea party in the woods with all our little animal friends. how very disney, no?

however, it’s been a while since i last took some decent pictures, so please excuse me if i’m a bit rusty at first. ;p but it felt good to be posin’ && snapshottin’ away again, and it feels good to be “back”. however, i have a lot of work and a crap ton more of *shopping* to catch up on, so i should probably be getting to that…. ’til next time! ♥

hot, hot pink (and also, i have too many windlights)

guess who is still loving her cute ass?

hot hot pink

/me slowly raises her hand….

it’s not like i never had an excuse before to prance around in my panties, but now it almost feels like a disservice to the second life community if i cover my booty up too much. it’s just too good && i’m still pretty much enamored with it.

yes, enamored with my ass. hi, my name is vixxie, and i don’t deny my vanity at all~

an experimentation with color

sometimes, i like to experiment…

an experimentation with color

it could be with anything, really. experiment with makeup or different skintones or “styles” of dressing. but sometimes, it’s as simple as changing what hair color i have for the day.. and the results can be surprising.

lately, i’ve been really *loving* the sort of unnatural look that crazy colors of hair can give you. hair color has been something i’ve experimented with in the past and, for the most part, the results have always been the same. while i have no problem donning a different hue of hair (which, most of the time, feels like i’m wearing a wig!), especially when i’m trying to go for a certain look.. i always end up coming back to the bright, white-blonde that i usually have. it was more frequent when i had a strictly fashion blog, but even as recent as a few weeks ago did i experiment with my hair color && step outside my usual range. even for the blonde colors — they’re not the typical bleach blonde i wear, but darker and more golden shades.

but there’s just somethin’ i can’t shake about a good blue hair. or pink. or lavender. or teal with lime green tips. or any combo of those colors, all at once. and i think, if i ever decided i was completely 100% tired of being the lightest of blondes, that *these* kinda colors are the ones i’d go for. not black or white or ginger or brunette… but deep, rich plum and neon hot pink and yellow so bright it rivals a highlighter marker. there’s something edgy and fun and different about these sorts of hair colors && i really, really am loving how i look in them.

plus since i found these fantastic tintable eyebrows, i don’t even have to be limited by the brow colors i can find. and since my skin of choice (alyx, from pink fuel, which i have a really hard taking off, if you couldn’t tell) has an option to go brow-less, only the sky is the limit on what kinds of cray cray hair colors i could pull off.

now, mind you, all this could turn right around and bite me in the ass when tomorrow… i decide nah, i’d rather be blonde again, but! for now, i’m enjoying the different look it’s giving me. and that’s all that matters, yes?

of course, only *i* could ramble this long about hair color in second life……………………. dunno if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, really. ;p

cutie booty

i was pretty slow to give into the mesh body-part craze. i mean, feet.. yeah, sure, i bought those pretty fast. the default avatar feet are awful && i’d been wearing franeknfeet for a long time, so when the avatar enhancement feet from slink hit the grid, i was on them *super* quick. but the hands.. boobs.. and the azz, for some reason i was slow to jump on the bandwagon.

but the other day, the cute azz from luck inc was released… which is pretty much like the phat azz‘s li’l sister.. and i knew i had to have it.

my ass is faaaaaaaabulous. not that it wasn’t pretty fabulous before, but now? it’s *extra* fabulous. i can’t stop staring at it && i am not sorry at all.

little bit of cosplay

i know i’m not the only one, but i am *definitely* not immune to gacha insanity. i love them just as much as the next sl resident.. and it doesn’t matter which event it is, i will most likely find something in a gacha machine to go crazy for.

so when bff vivi && i saw some sailor scout inspired lingerie sets from tsg at an event called omgacha, we knew we had to collect them *all*. no ifs ands or buts about it — we had to have every. single. set.

we are both HUGE fans of sailor moon.. it reminds us so much of our childhood. the english, dubbed version of sailor moon came on every day on cartoon network after school and i rarely missed an airing. i was always fondest of sailor mercury && sailor jupiter, but there’s a sort of *nostalgic love* for all the inner and outer senshi. i’ve seen just about every episode, the movies, have read some of the manga — i think *obsessed* is even putting it lightly. so seeing these sets, with their butt bows and adorable sailor collars.. i think i went completely out of my mind with wanting all of them.

so, naturally, vivienne and i plugged our lindens into the machine until we did, in fact, get every last pair.. and that inspired a cosplay photoshoot that is just too awesome not to share!

moooooooon priiismmmmmmmm POWEEEEEEERR~!!!
