Did you miss me?

While I was gone? Yeah, no, I doubt that. In parts because Kinu picked up my slack and blogged some stuff while I wasn’t blogging. Awesome pictures at that <3 She is getting so good. But also in parts because, hey, why should you care about me, right? I’m just yet another fashion bloggers among hundreds. I don’t make anything to stand out. I’m not one of those top 5 most important bloggers. I know this. And to be quite honest, I am not striving for it either.

I love my followers, I really do. I blog for you guys..but mostly, I blog for myself. Blogging isn’t just that for me. I don’t just blog. I experiment, I try new things, I sit through hours and hours of tutorials to pic up on new things. Some of those new things I pick up on end up on the blog, sure, some of those new things I learned end up incorporated into my store and the creations I make there.

Sure, some pictures may be “boring” or “standard” fashion blogging. I recognize that, and to be honest, there is nothing wrong with that either. Some days I just want to show off what I am wearing, without spending an hour finding a fitting location for the outfit, then another hour finding the exact right pose, then another two to four hours in photoshop editing that picture…and you know what? That’s fine. I seriously admire bloggers who can blog every day, day in and day out, just doing good pictures with whatever they are wearing.

But now..I feel like that just isn’t enough. Not for me. I want to really pour myself into my images. Just really stuff my personality into them. If that means I will do less posts? So be it.

 

I can live with that. Hell, I can even live with doing some of those “standard” or “boring” posts, just to show off what I am wearing..cause seriously, some days I just want to show of what I am wearing, cause I am fucking hawt :> Simple as that.

So yeah, I guess what I am saying, from now on I shall try to put more “me” into my pictures..good or bad. Mostly bad I think, cause I’m not that interesting to start with :P

Be it just me rambling about my day irl, my emotions, the music I am listening to, what I did in SL or whatnot, I feel like just blogging about what I am wearing isn’t enough anymore. I want to evolve. Second Life has done so much for me over the years. I have been here for over seven years by now, closing in on eight, and I can’t see myself leaving any time soon.

In Second Life I really discovered the creative side in me. I discovered new music, I made new friends, it helped form my creative side…and that creative side is what keeps me blogging. If I can’t keep developing my creative side, I have no idea what I would do with myself, seriously. Setting up pictures and tinkering away with them in Photoshop is almost like therapy to me. I love it.

So, there you have it, ramblings from me. What I want to say with all of this I do not know yet. I might just start getting even more creative, which I’ve wanted to do for a long while now..I might just start talking more, opening up more…taking more creative pictures,,,do more tutorials to share what I’ve learnt. I dunno really, I just felt I had to say this..and this is part of the reason I haven’t blogged in a while. I over-think everything I do and say, it’s just part of my nature.

Whatever happens, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

Pose by me

Solitary

First of all let me just say this…I love you all <3. No, seriously, I do. I didn’t expect that good response to my tutorials. I was going back and forth if I was going to post them or not, sending them to friends asking if they were good enough or not. Apparently they were, and I am so very happy about it.

Yes, there will for sure be more tutorials, absolutely, don’t worry about that. I will finish up the picture I started on, and after that there will be more. I am a bit of a tutorial-junkie myself, I love to read and watch tutorials and then try them out myself, so I can absolutely understand why you like these. They are, so far, pretty basic, and I know I would have loved to seen these when I started out my blogging, so no worries, there will be more. Also, I do love feedback. If there is something you guys would love to see, let me know and I will try to do it. If it is something I know and use, I will try to show you how it I do it.

Keep in mind, however, with my tutorials, one thing; I learned Photoshop on my own. I have no formal training whatsoever, everything I know is things I picked up from tutorials here and there. I am more then happy to share what I know, just yeah, keep in mind I do not know it all.

And now, on to something completely different. The one event around where I dress up looking like something completely different. We <3 RolePlay still has a few days left of this round, so Im gonna show off a few things you can grab this round.
