Happy-New-Year-1

Happy New Year everyone! ♥

It’s the first of January, and I had a really nice calm New Years eve.
A lot of Danish people have the tradition of watching our Queen’s New Years speech, and I am one of them. It’s been a tradition ever since I was a little girl.

This years speech was really good. I have chosen some paragraphs from the speech that I really feel we all should keep in mind, that can apply to most of us!

“These years we are witnessing economic progress in Denmark. Our companies feel it, the Danes feel it and are steaming ahead. Economically, Denmark is doing very well, but we must also take the time to consider what this good fortune is doing for us and doing to us. Is economic progress also translated into social progress?

Our country is becoming richer. But are our lives becoming richer?

Many people experience that the pace of day-to-day life has increased, also more than all can keep up with. There is so much that needs to be done, both at work and during leisure time. Perhaps we create some of the demands ourselves. We do not want to miss out on anything – we want it all, and preferably at the same time.

In our hurry we may become too keen on being in the limelight. It is as if more people say, “look at me” and fewer have an eye for others.

I fear that reflection and consideration may be pushed back and forgotten.

New technology has created altogether new opportunities for contact with others. It is possible to FaceTime with one’s children and grandchildren even though they are on the other side of the globe; it is a source of great joy to all parties.  However, new technology may also result in the contact becoming more impersonal – we are “online” all the time – and we forget that, actually, there is a human being at the other end. It is so easy to write a comment or share a photo on social media that may be offensive and leave deep scars. That sort of thing goes into cyberspace, spreading like swarms of flies.

I find there is a tendency that our way of spending time together becomes more superficial, less attentive. We do not take the time to understand each other and we forget to respect each other and take care of each other.

It also affects our children.”

Our Queen also speaks to children in this speech, which I personally find really lovely. She said:

“There are probably some children who are also watching tonight?

To you I would like to say a few words:

The important thing is not how you look or what you have achieved. But who you are and how you behave towards others – your friends and schoolmates; if you are so busy achieving what is best for yourself all the time, you fail to see how others are doing.  

You need to take the time to notice if a friend is unhappy. There must be time to understand if you have said something that hurts a friend, or you have teased someone too much. It is important to patch things up again then.

This does not apply to children only; we who are adults should also bear it in mind.”

You can read the full speech at The Danish Royal Family webpage – it is definitely worth a read. ♥

Blondes are noticed, but redheads are never forgotten.

I’ve been thinking a bit about this whole Flickr vs. Instagram, and I was honestly quite worried, because I’ve never used Instagram before and to me it’s a village in Russia.
I am slowly starting to figure it out, and while I agree that what Flickr is doing is thoroughly frustrating, they too are a business that needs to feed people, so I understand it too. What I fear the most is to lose the followerbase I’ve worked extremely hard to get, as all bloggers do, since I have never used instragram before and therefor haven’t got the same follower base. I was planning on upgrading to Pro anyway in the new year, so as much as it frustrates me what Flickr is doing, I am going to keep using it and simply add Instagram as another platform to post on as well.

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

The days are really getting colder here, and I’ve broken out my favorite sweater – and not just in Second Life! Outside it still looks like spring, but the colder winds definitely tells a different story. I honestly love this time of year, bringing out the warmer cozy clothing, scarves and coats, tea and soup! ❤
If someone asked me to name a favorite season, I wouldn't know what to pick, because I love them all. Each season has its beauty.

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

My sweater dress is from Kaithleen’s and comes in a wide array of colors – and with stripes. You can also color the neckline and dress separately. ♥ It has a beautiful open back, which you can get a glance at in the ad photo below the credits. ♥ Kaithleen’s has also recently released a great outfit for the men at Cosmpolitan! My man tried it on and we both loved it. Don’t miss out, guys! ♥

Today, I’ve been going wild at Uber and spent way too much (as usual), but there are just so many lovely releases. Foxcity has released this really cozy backdrop cabin and pose set including this awesome hanging chair and a cup to match the poses – the chair contains the poses as well, so you can just sit and pick which pose you want ♥ – this poser maker just keeps taking it to the next level. ♥ I love watching her grow and expand.

Truth has worked his magic again and given us the adorable Aislin hair and I’ve immediately added it to my favorite button on the toolbar. ♥ It has 10 different styles, mirror versions included and three different sizes for each one. Did I mention I am totally addicted to Truth? ♥ Not just because of his hairs, but once I lost nearly all my hairs and spend hours putting a NC together (this was before redelivery was common) where I was wearing the hairs I lost, Truth was the first to reach out with a helping hand and put a massive amount of L$s in my credit to replace some of them. That is truly something I appreciate and value, and will never forget – a creator with an exceptionally kind heart. ♥

Bueno is also at Uber, and released these cute boots that are just my style – I love the loose fitting in boots like these, and I immediately fatpacked them. ♥
Sole and boot can be colored separately. ♥ I can’t really say much about these other than they are perfection. ♥

Dust Bunny has released a cute branch coat hanger and umbrella holder at Uber too, and I am in love. ♥ I love naturally looking creations with wood that isn’t necessarily completely straight up and down. ♥ The coat hanger comes in four different colors; gold, black, white and light pink. The umbrella stand also comes in the same four matching colors. ♥
