Running circles ’round my mind
Even when it’s rainy all you ever do is shine
You on fire, you a star just like Mariah
Man this feels incredible, I’ll turn you into a bride, you’re mine

The best thing about coming back to Second Life after such an extended break is discovering all the stores I have been missing out on!  Phoenix is one of the stores I want to talk about today.  I have always LOVED hair in Second Life; unfortunately, it can be a lot of hit or miss when it comes to textures/colors.  However, let me tell you that Phoenix does not disappoint.  Lilly Herberg offers many different color packs (ombre being my favorite) and she also includes an option for materials enabling on her newer hud’s.  Can we say, “hello, shiny texture that mimics real hair in the light,”?  If you haven’t checked out Phoenix yet then I really recommend that you do.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised just like I was!

So I got this feeling
That you and I need this moment
I want you to touch me, baby
Let me feel it
I need you to hold me, baby
If you willing

Sometimes I struggle and other times I rejoice.  It’s been a weird year for me which is probably one of the reasons why I have found myself back on Second Life after such an extended break.  I wouldn’t have changed that break for anything because I saw myself through tragedy, I learned how to power through the storm when I wanted to give up, and I chased my dreams.  It wasn’t always easy and it wasn’t always what I wanted it to be.  Many times during that time, and even now, I forget to stop and appreciate the beauty of life and the journey we all take.  I think that’s what coming back has helped me with.  Amazing beautiful creations like this outfit from Sexy Princess or the amazing Flower Wall from RAMA remind me that one can find beauty everywhere in Second Life and outside of it.  So, when life starts to feel overwhelming… and it will… remember the beautiful things in life!

Stix

StixIf you have been following this blog, you know that I usually do some editing to my photos.  It is always done in a way that doesn’t alter the products but makes the picture more visually appealing.  Today, I have obviously not edited the photos above because I wanted you to see exactly how amazing these skins from Stix are without anything other than windlight settings altered.  This is a new-to-me store since I returned to SL, but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised.  There is a softness and nice coloring to the skins that gives me the courage to try more brands I’m not familiar with!  These skins were a part of Skin Fair 2018, but you can find them at the main store!

Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
