Rough diamonds can sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles

Rough diamonds can may sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles.

Today I was meant to clean my apartment a bit, but if I am totally honest, I feel lazy and I am tired today. I blame the change in the weather – it’s getting darker and colder here – but it’s honestly quite nice after such a long hot summer. To see the grass becoming green again is lovely. ♥ No, really, I think it’s one of those days, where I am procrastinating a little. I’ve been watching suits during lunch (really excellent show by the way), and other little things to distract myself from what I know needs doing. So… I am going to go and do it now.. maybe… in a bit, when I have done this and this and this… Who said anything about procrastinating?

In other news; I did get my Twitter set up again, so now you can all follow me there you, if you’d like and use Twitter.

Today, I am showing you guys more beautiful creations from my lovely collaborators. From Glam Affair – Jessica applier for Catwa, which can be found at Collabor88. Her recent skins are very much my style and I love the natural softness of them. ♥ I am also wearing Kaithleen’s newest dress – Viera, which is out at FaMESHed GO! The dress is thigh-length and the frills on the left side reach all the way down below the edge of the dress, which gives it a very red-carpet feel for me. You can see the full dress ad below the credits. Avaway has released a very elegant jewelry set – the Sharon necklace and earrings, which are sold separately, and I feel they really match this dress well in terms of elegance and colors. They really accentuate the neckline of the dress. ♥

If people were rain, then I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane

If people were rain, then I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane

Weather is changing here again and I have to admit, I’ve really missed the rain. I love summer, I really do, but this one has felt VERY long, so I am glad to see some proper autumn weather (and so is the grass!) That’s the beauty of rain – it rejuvenates everything. ♥

Glam Affair is releasing so many cute skins right now, and I want to blog them ALL, but as many as she releases, I could sit here all day every day and just blog skin upon skin – but I am not complaining. ♥ The one I am wearing in the photo is called “Dee” and can be found at Au Lovely. It comes with the usual choices for brow colors, as well as three freckle/mole options (not shown in this photo). ♥

What I am wearing: 

Coat: Belle Epoque { Adley } Black @ mainstore.
Hair: Exile:: Snow Fall (gacha) @ mainstore.
Shape: My own.
New Skin: Glam Affair – Dee (Catwa) @ Au Lovely.
Umbrella: Astralia – September ends Umbrella @ mainstore.

Autumn is a second spring, where every leaf is a flower

I am having a bit of a period, where I am not feeling too inspired, or in touch my creativity and it’s been getting to me a lot lately. I know that all I can really do about it is to step away from it for a bit and come back with fresh eyes, but when I do that, I feel the itch to take more photos, but then I sit down and fall in the same ditch again; not feeling inspired. But I also know that eventually it will hit again. ♥

On this photo, I am wearing Glam Affair “Paula” – one of the new releases for Collabor88, and I love it. ♥ I love the details and softness of Glam Affairs skins – and especially how they’ve started making their lips and brows ♥ I’ve matched the cute Daphne hair with a cute open-back sweater from Kaithleen – and it’s so cute. It has a bow that holds the sweater together. ♥

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

In just about 2 months, I’ve had my blog for a year – not the flickr, but this actual blog and I really feel like I’ve grown as a photographer and blogger, and really starting to come into myself, to the identity of being a blogger and photographer. It’s been an exciting year of learning, observing and trying various styles, windlights, etc., etc., and I will continue to do so! However, there will be some changes made, starting right now actually!

I am renaming my blog to “Girl Next Door” – this is something, I’ve considered for a while, because I feel it’s more “me” – not to say that I am not still finding introversion to be beautiful – I do. But after a very interesting and great conversation with lots of great feedback with a blogger manager, I decided to go through with it, so from now on the blog address will be https://girlnextdoor.blog/, and I will continue to bring you lots of photos, a bit more writing than I have up till now and of course credits.

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

Fall in upon us and it’s time to bring out the sweaters – I’ve found my favorite sweater so far in SL at Collabor88 by Tres Blah. I am IN LOVE with this. 3/4 sleeves, feminine v-neck and thigh length for coziness and warmth. ♥ I will live in this sweater. Combined with these cute jeans from ISON – another of my favorite brands and you have the perfect fall look. Tableau Vivant had a makeover lately, and I am in love with the new styles. In this photo, I’ve chosen a loose, straight forward hairstyle that they just released at Collabor88, and I love how it hangs naturally down the breast and back, as well as draping beautifully over the shoulders. ♥
