I do five likes every week because with all the negativity in the world and people who threaten to pop your rosy bubble of happiness, finding joy in the little things has been a recommended idea by many of people, socialites, friendship circles and psychologists alike. It is no way meant to be means to boast about great your life is but more finding the better things that make you smile and push through a week until you are fresh for the next.
This week has been uneventful at work, we have a group of nuns staying with us at the moment so our hotel is feeling incredibly holy and full of energy because of their presence, they aren’t your typical nuns either (enjoy a good game of football while drinking beer or wine). I have had the pleasure of dropping them off in our hotel shuttle bus to and from the destination, I have gotten confidence in driving our vehicle which has been great.
- High Tea at La Florisan with Mei this Monday public holiday, can’t wait!
- Cadbury coated Oreos, they made it an official biscuit down under 😀
- My Beauty and the Beast Enchanted rose bluetooth speaker arrived, its so pretty
- My Gryffindor nightgown from Peter Alexander #Housepride
- Our internet has been bumped to 5g because of the newly installed NBN
No new tile today coming from the grid, just a lot of random pictures that I have been taking since returning from my month holiday, I have to admit that the release of cuter, pink items is making a comeback again and I’m so glad it is.
MishMish released an adorable bear in the September round of Collabor88 and it is either a companion, a plushie to cuddle or decoration for your home. Close friends know I have a weakness for teddy bears I see them as the guardians for kids when they sleep, I also still have my very first bear since I was born, One-Eye Jack. The pretty pink building in the background is actually HolliPocket‘s store, there was lag present on the sim so I could take a photo without the furniture inside.
I sometimes visit the very first store that I shopped in back in 2013, it was originally called Crazy Kitty, now renamed Candy Kitten, the owner is Kaci Kohime and she has slowly changed her theme to something that the babygirls in BDSM would love. The sim I’m on hers is her store but this little cafe with ice-cream out the front is outside the main entrance and to the left. My top is by Hilly Haalan, the cute traveller bag with camera is from Reign‘s gacha from the September round of the Arcade, the Hungry necklace is by E.marie from PocketGacha, a new event where there is no sim and you can just play by a hud, no lag, no worries.
Taken in the comfort of my home, see the MishMish bear in the corner, I got two colours, one for a companion the other as decoration in my bedroom. As I have said in previous entries, I am usually quite often parked inside my cottage because it is my safety bubble and comfort zone away from the toxic personalities of the people on Second Life. The outfit I’m wearing is my most comfortable, if not in the pyjamas. The cute hoodie is by Sweet Thing from the current round of Kustom9 and the underwear are by Violent Seduction
If I’m not parked in my cottage I go wandering and usually on my own though this week I have been enjoying the company of one of my best friends online Aria. The above picture is taken outside the main store of Aii, she creates fantasy and Japanese inspired clothing. My garments are made by Zenith in the new round of Kustom9, as always she makes amazing mesh Oriental robes.
All this excitement of leading up to the end of the year, my new work opening at the beginning of next month and I will be joining them in January has got this week going very quickly. Today on my day off was quiet during the day though I have been writing a fair lot even if its one shots that have been inspired by my dreams. I used to do this a lot when I was in high school, I’d have a random idea pop into my head and I used to quickly write it down in a notebook or type up a story on the downstairs computer.
It is why I have so many books that are half full in my book shelf and in the drawers too, I had an endless imagination that a tiny piece was only used during my roleplaying days on IMVU. I guess being hardly online in either virtual universe, the imagination is waking up even more and I am creating my own alphabet, drawing up maps and creating new fantasy species especially for the bigger tales. Alongside my Ame chronicles, I have about four other big stories saved on my laptop.
It has been a whirlwind of a week since I have returned to work but I am thankful for the past couple of days and everything is still in a very positive light for myself and my family. I’ve had some big news occur recently and they will be published in the below positive thoughts, it goes to show for myself that if you put your heart into something you are guranteed to get it and even if you don’t, you keep trying until you get somewhere that is good for yourself.
My creativity boost from before the holidays is still going and I have been multi-tasking between three of my original stories, I used to write more than ten and have notes for many more before I got into roleplay on IMVU, ten years ago. I’m glad it hasn’t left me completely and I don’t need a group of people to get a plot going. Below are the weekly five likes;
- I got the job! Since before my Europe holiday I have been applying at other Accor properties in a different department. This morning I got woken up to join the new hotel opening in the city, it is a five star property. I won’t be starting until January next year but OMG I got the job!
- I walked/jogged the Blackmore bridge run this past weekend in the city, I beat my record that I did at the 10km run in Canberra in April of this year 😀
- Family lunch this past Monday, mum, sister and I all had days off after the big run and my sister suggested that we all go out for lunch, we went to Hog’s breath cafe at Towers. I had a chicken Caesar wrap with sweet potato wedges.
- Hoping to catch up with my bestie Mei this upcoming Sunday, I haven’t seen her since before the holiday and I know we need to brainstorm our creative ideas and give presents to her.
- Barbie finally released a new film! It is on American Netflix, I am just waiting for it to be released down under
Pink isn’t just a colour, it’s an attitude
I will openly admit this to everyone who comes by my blog, sometimes IMVU has cuter clothes than Second Life, I switch between the two quite often and though we do not walk, run or fly on the IMVU platform, the creators do their best in releasing a lot of adorable clothes.
While the men as always it is a work in progress but that is the same in reality too, more female clothes then men brands, even they look handsome and on point in their clothes. I know this because I dress up my boyfriend’s avatar on IMVU. And like what I do on Second Life after sitting in the dressing room and changing my avatar’s appearance, I test out the look either through photo publishing or go into the heavily populated rooms.
The reception is usually recieved well and I get compliments whether from my friends or from randoms who private message in either world. The furniture detail on Second Life is cuter but there is no limit in how much you can put inside a public room on IMVU. I have three public rooms in that world- my office, a Summer pool and my New York city apartment.
I usually hang out in the apartment as most of you are aware from my previous IMVU posts and I always like to chop and change various corners in that public room as much as I change my avatar’s outfit whenever I log on after a while. I have been on IMVU for 10 years now since August this year and I have watched the progression of the standard avatar change from heavy jewellery and bobble heads to sleek mesh heads and scalers to give more curvature to the base.
This assumption especially said by the Second Life users about IMVU avatars needs to stop, because not all of us look like a 2007 avatar anymore, in fact we look really good.
Yes I’m still around, sorry I haven’t been sharing anything with you all lately,
I have been on a creative spree when it comes to story writing, also suffering jet lag from my trip to Europe and working the PM shifts. But I will post today that I had an interview at the new Sofitel in the city yesterday morning and it went really well! I met the Reservations manager and the Revenue manager who were both really nice women and the interview only went for 17mins, I will find out if I got the job or not next Monday so positive thoughts for me everyone!
This Sunday I will also be doing the Blackmore 10km run/walk with my mum and two of her friends, I’m not sure if some of you remember from last year, we did the 9km run of the same event. I am hoping to beat my score since I have been very active while travelling around Europe so my body is not foreign to lots of movement. My sister and I will be staying in the city because Ange being the fit girl that she is, is doing the half marathon- say good luck to her too 😀
Returning to pink and black outfits and none of these are part of Ame’s story arcs featured in her chronicles. These were all made recently on Polyvore when I had a random creative spike. The three outfits were inspired by places I have seen and wish to go there myself or wanting to have certain actors and actresses to be part of my chronicles dream cast.
Below are the three selected outfits for this week;
Valentines Day: Made on the 14th February, I was in a mush mood and was also in the middle of writing up the future stories for the Osvaldo Arc, this particular V-day is when Ame is back with her Italian mafia Jacen and they have gone to Paris for a weekend away. The above LOTD isn’t so much a dinner date but it could be during the day when Ame is out shopping at her favourite designer stores. She is subtlely armed in this look wearing her usual garter knives. My favourite accessory is the Gucci embroidered clutch.
Senpai in NYC: Ame stayed in New York city when she was hiding from the Russian Mafia Oleysa Zima, but has returned to the Big Apple on multiple occasions, she even has a permanent apartment in Park avenue. One of her connections through the London syndicate is a professor at New York university and rumour is that she is a crazy scientist. If in New York City, Ame will visit the professor to catch up as well as get any details on her latest creations. This LOTD is fun, feminine and eccentric, my favourite pieces is the egg purse and egg hair pins.
Rose Streets: I have shared so many outfits of Ame back home in the streets of Tokyo that I am certain everyone who follows her stories and fashion know what her looks are. Much more casual in the presence of friendships though still designer like her older sister Meiakane. Ame while in her home country always goes all out when it comes to her attire, she blends in with the Shinjuku and Harajuku crowds especially at night when the shops are open until late. My favourite accessories on this LOTD is the Kate Spade ‘Hello Tokyo’ cat bag and the badges/pins on her skirt.
