“Beauty is not long hair, skinny legs, tanned skin or perfect teeth. Believe me. Beauty is the face of who cried and now smiles, beauty is the scar on your knee since you fell when you were a kid, beauty is the circles when love doesn’t let you sleep, beauty is the expression on the face when the alarm rings in the morning, it’s the melted makeup when you have a shower, it’s the laughter when you make a joke you’re the only one who can understand, beauty is meeting his gaze and stopping understanding, beauty is your gaze when you see him, it’s when you cry for all you paranoias, beauty is the lines marked by time. Beauty is what we feel in the inside which also shows outside us. Beauty is the marks the life leaves on us, all the kicks and the caresses the memories leave us. Beauty is letting yourself live.”
Im backkkkkk my loves!!!! I feel as though July was the longest month because it was the very first time I didn’t do a blog post for the entire month. I’d sign into SL and be like “well… wtf do I do now?” lol. Because blogging has always been my escape when it comes to just being bored, having a lot on my mind, or just wanting to play around and put an outfit together. This past month I didn’t do that. I forced myself to just take the entire month off. And man did I miss blogging. I didn’t think I would miss it as much as I did, but was I surprised. After blogging since Dec 2012.. and never missing one month ever it becomes basically just apart of your life. Part of your normal routine. With all that being said, I sure am happy to be back.
While I was away my Bumblebee aka Piper would send me her goodies she did for events in the month of July. I decided to start the month of August off with some of her goodies for this round of Somber. I’m pretty sure the event is still open but not for long. If you want these goodies you need to be stopping everything you’re doing and run and grab them now. This round of Somber wont be open very much longer. The top comes in a variety of colors and sayings, but I loved this one the most. Takes me back to American Horror Story and I’ve been missing that show so much I just needed to embrace my inner AHS love and blog this version of the top. *Whispers* Even though Coven was one of my least favorite seasons. YES YES I KNOW PLEASE DON’T YELL AT ME!! I know there’s a TON of people who love Coven and think its one of the best. I am not one of those people. Don’t get me wrong.. I liked it.. I just didn’t LOVE it. Ya know?
The pencil skirt sits perfectly up under this top and together they make a very adorable outfit. I paired it off with some Reign Coven heels (of course!) And a older hair style from Little Bones called Glow. It finishes off the very Coven look I was going for. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do. And I hope some of y’all are happy I’m back. And if not.. then that’s okay too lol. ♥ *Happy August Y’all!!* Psst…. October and Halloween is right around the corner! Yes… I’m already counting down.
You know that feeling? When you’re just waiting. Waiting to get home, into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let everything out that you kept in all day. That feeling of both relied and desperation. Nothing is wrong. But nothing is right either. And you’re tired. Tired of everything, tired of nothing. And you just want someone to be there and tell you its okay. But non ones going to be there. And you know you have to be strong for yourself, because no one can fix you. But you’re tired of waiting. Tired of having to be the one to fix yourself and everyone else. Tired of being strong. And for once, you just want it to be easy. To be simple. To be helped. To be saved. But you know you wont be. But you’re still hoping. And you’re still wishing. And you’re still staying strong and fighting, with tears in your eyes. You’re fighting.
“She didn’t need to be softer around the edges or someone she wasn’t in order to be accepted. All she needed to do was stand in her truth, and be who she was.” -Unknown
Be her. Be that woman whose not afraid to be who God created you to be. That woman who is proud to be who you are, and stand in your truth. In a world filled with so many influences, be that woman who finds great pleasure in living out loud and above the influence. That’s how you make an impressionable difference. I’m happy to be a woman who stands in my truth by remaining authentic, honest, and pure hearted in all I do. That’s something I’ll never change for anyone. That’s who people wont forget.
