The Darkness Inside

I did think a long time about a title for this post and pictures and after a conversation with a dear, sweet friend today, I suddenly had the idea – “The dark beast inside of me sometimes needs some release”

We all know that feeling I guess. You often just try to be polite and kind even if you feel that the inner beast tries to break free. In my life I learned that his beast has two different sides. It is very emotional and hot-headed on one side and sometimes it can be very dark ironic and sarcastic on the other. That is why I learned to control it and keep it locked in chains inside of me.

Certainly I was told to not always swallow all my emotions and everything that I get told, but the same time there is way how you can express this in a polite and adult way.

The most difficult it gets when you feel hurt. Because then this beast inside just rambles and rattles with the chains, developing immense power so that I sometimes really be afraid it would break that chains and just break free.

But exactly those situations taught me the most. When I was able to still keep it inside, it felt as a success to not let it win over me just because of someones judgement, rumors, gossips or words.

Every time I was able to keep it locked away, I felt that I did grow stronger. It was a long process and it took me years and sadly it is still not perfectly locked. But maybe it does not have to be, because everything has an end as well and so does patience, understanding and politeness. Sometimes people really need to know when they overstepped a line or did hurt me even if they will not believe nor change their behaviour – most of the time because they can’t as they have nothing in their life than trying to make others miserable. Then you do not even need to argue with those, because you can’t win. Anyways what you will say to prove them wrong they will turn it around and again use it against you no matter what. So all you can do is let it go, turn around and move on.

If you move on, you will meet new people in the future who will treat you with more respect and in an adult way. Certainly not only those, but all the others will wait for you left and right as well and maybe it is the personal challenge of everyone’s life to pass those who do not matter to meet those who DO matter – if that makes any sense. That does not mean you should not take any critiques, but you can learn to decide between the good and the bad critique. The bad, that only was used to hurt, blame or accuse you without any content OR the one that sometimes hurts too a bit – because you might have seen it different – but that as well contains facts and things that let you learn and grow from.

In the end you are the one, that has to make the decisions in your life – nobody can do or should do that for – as long as you can.

For me it feels better to have a mainly positive life (all of us have bad days or experiences) instead of a hate filled, jealous and not satisfied one. I always ask myself – before I react on things – if it would be worth fighting or arguing about something, or just smile and say thank you, turn around and move on. Both cases did happen and both will happen in the future, but if I argue or discuss I try to stay with the facts, be polite and kind and as well stay adult and not just release the inner beast without thinking. If that happens, I exactly would do that, what I do not want be done to myself – hurt, accuse or become personal and unobjective – and that is not an option to me if I can control it. I have to admit, over the years I became way more calm in such situations and maybe it is the age that lets you think before you take any action 😉

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 7

TRPH #4 - Styles by Danielle full

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in it’s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says “The hunt with models in mind” does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybody’s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

Today I would like to put the spotlight on Styles by Danielle. Dani made the wonderful “Lisa” pants for the perfect runway hunt. The dark blue pants with the white ornaments on the right leg and the little belt at the waist, give a basic for many different kind of styles. You can go for a harem look, something arabic or even for something more futuristic like I did. Since the pants are from Styles by Danielle, I thought mabye it would be a good idea to combine it with a top and jewelry as well made by Dani Plassitz, owner and designer of Styles by Danielle. The “Krony” earrings are the actual group gift of Styles by Danielle, the “Taj” bracelets and the “Mims” top as well are from Styles by Danielle. For the shoes I chose the “BAX Booties” and the hair is on of my long time favourites from PurpleMoon. A little focus I would like to put on the face decoration as well. Dahiel, owner and designer of PosESioN, is well known for his amazing poses, but lately he started again to make some amazing jewelry and acessories. The “Centaurus” set is one of his newest additions. Usually it has a wonderful horns nose piercing as well but for today I only used the horns that go to the forehead.

The Runway Perfect Hunt will last until the 30th of May so do not hesitate too long to grab your hunt prizes ;)

News at Fellini Couture

Today I have the great pleasure to show you some of the latest releases of Fellini Couture.

Joy again surprises us with some new fantastic mesh creations. The new “Tentation Lips” dress is a wonderful combination of a very female looking dress and some…  kinda pop art with the huge lips. The dress itself is made very tight and lays dreamy around a slim, but curved female shape. The corset makes an amazing waist size, sexy and seductive. The huge lip that decorates the front of the skirt, Joy brough back above the corset, with some glass/diamond looking parts on red lips that are arranged to cover the chest. To really make sure that, you do not see anything you should not, you have an extra clothing layer ;). The strong red lips combined with simple white brought me on some crazy and funky accessories… the huge collar and the leash between my lips made the whole look pointing out on some Lady Gaga stylings and so I decided to add some heavy makeup from LovelyMi for the eyes. With that, now more fierce than elegant look, I needed some extravagant hair and my thought fell on one special hair from Bizarre Hair that was released not too long ago. To bring back the red of the lips, belt and gloves below the skirt, my decision for shoes fell on some red and vintage looking ankle boots from BAX.

As I finally finished my look and snapped the pictures the red came out very strong and I suddenly had the imagination of the comic ‘Sin City’ that uses a lot of black and white only featuring a deep and blood-red and so I worked on the pictures to get exactly that vibe for this post. The “Tentation” mesh gown as well is available in a nother version that is made only off black and white without the huge lips what might fit better for any elegant and classy occasions, but I liked the red accents so much, that I had to showcase the red lips version 😉

If you wanna take a look at the other one you can wait till I have it on my blog or you just make your way to the Fellini Couture Mainstore and see for yourself.
