Sweetbox – Everything’s Gonna Be Alright
Let me just start by saying I’m not dead, nor am I in a mental coma, I’ve just always loved the optimism in this song by Sweetbox. Actually, maybe in some ways I have been in a mental coma. Not regarding love, but rather, of what my love has to deal with on a daily basis. We lead protected and somewhat naive lives in Norway and Oslo people trying to copy my northerner accent or wondering how many reindeer I have (Sami reference) is nothing, NOTHING, compared to what black americans have lived through for centuries. Yes, yes, before you go raging in my comments Norwegian Sami history is not good, but also not the point right now. And to people that right now are saying All Lives Matter, please don’t. Not right now. What you’re doing is stealing focus away from the Black Lives Matter movement and if you didn’t know it, it’s pretty darn important! So for right now, let’s all focus and work together to get rid of racism because it’s about f***ing time we do that!
Oh! Mahogany and I are snuggling close in the Art Studio photo scene by DiMi’s! You get the paintings on an easel, books on the floor, candles, crates with pillows, paper rolls and even a couple playful kittens and the rug. The rug contains single and couple animations (PG/Adult). Mahogany and I are using one of the Sweet Couple animations in the picture above. The scene is Copy/Modify and 29 LI. DiMi’s Art Studio is available right now at the Last Chance event and you can see a demo at DiMi’s mainstore.
I love you the way a drowning man loves air. And it would destroy me to have you just a little.
The Crown of Embers
I’m in Tuscany, waiting for my date. We’re going to buy some food and drinks at the local market and take a bicycle trip to our favourite picnic site and just enjoy the quiet countryside, good food and each others company.

And now for the “just because” part. I sometimes do unsponsored blog posts, just because, but it’s been a while now since I did that. Reading Victoria James’ blog post Isn’t It Romantic the other day inspired me to do one again myself. Well, it’s semi just because at least. I found so much stuff I liked at this round of TMD and I’d like to share it with you. The hair from Dura, the facial hair from Volkstone, the jacket from not so bad and the backpack from .etiquette are all at TMD this round. So freaking awesome!
A collaboration between DiMi’s and Angel’s Art Pose has resulted in this adorable camping backdrop/scene. The scene contains everything you see in the picture and there are 6 lovely couple poses in the tree trunk. The scene is 96LI and Copy/Mod which means you can move stuff around and resize them as you wish. You can buy the complete scene or separate pieces (Copy only). This scene was first available at La Vie En Pose but since I’m lagging behind a little after my vacation, you can now find it in DiMi’s mainstore.
DiMi’s Store has a new backdrop/scene out at this round of the Driftwood event. It’s a complete fishing campsite, with tent, campfire, fishing rods, a barrel of fish, a boat, backpacks, grass, trees, a tree stump with a racoon and a dog!

I blogged the L&B Havoc Ops Boots for the first time yesterday, today I wanted to show how they look with the socks. Find the boots at this round of TMD!
In my letter to Santa there is only one wish, one that can’t be bought. I’ll just keep it in my heart and hope that one day my wish comes true.
I’m wearing the L&B Havoc Sweater XMAS which is a VIP Group Gift – Wear your group tag and go pick it up at the L&B VIP room!

I rarely remember my dreams anymore, I blame a busy life and maybe also not getting enough sleep ;p When I was younger I remembered my dreams and they very often involved wild animals, especially bears and wolves even though I’ve never seen those animals in real life. Where I grew up the most dangerous predator was the wolverine. I used to follow their tracks in winter because I wanted to see them, but I never did find any.
DiMi’s “Happy Bears” winter scene took me straight into a winter dream and with the beautiful new Irezumi tattoo by CAROL G it became this, a bit of a Japanese inspired scene.
The “Happy Bears” backdrop/scene is available at the Driftwood event until January 6th. It’s Copy/Modify and 79 Li out of the box. You can edit linked and move stuff around as you please. It has animated snowfall and the squirrel is animated by Touch. A demo is available at DiMi’s mainstore.
I just fell in love with the Irezumi tattoo the moment I saw it. Now, irezumi literally means ‘inserting ink’ in Japanese. The Traditional Japanese Tattoo “Irezumi” is the decoration of the body with mythical beasts, flowers, leafs, and other images from stories, myths and tales. The impetus for the development of the art was the progression of the woodblock prints and notably the “hero’s heavily decorated with Irezumi”. Wearing Irezumi is an “Aspiration” to life’s goals. You can find this Irezumi tattoo at Men Only Monthly, starting tomorrow, December 20th.
When you undergo a visionary experience, what you are really doing is blowing your socially conditioned, 20th century, hive mind and allowing your brain to, literally, come to its senses.
The herd mentality is sometimes so strong you can’t but laugh when you’re watching from the outside. If one person says this is “the shit” (a stupid phrase for the coolest thing in the world) then the whole community thinks it’s “the shit”! Don’t be a part of that herd. Think for yourself, make your own opinion and stand up for what you believe and see yourself grow as a person. Let me tell you, it feels a whole lot better than just following someone blindly. Afraid you’ll be shunned by your peers? Pfff! You gain a whole lot more respect from others by speaking YOUR opinion. Don’t be a sheep.
The Escape Room is a new and wonderfully creepy photo backdrop by DiMi’s Store. It’s 26 Li, Copy/Mod, you can edit and move the pieces as you like. You can find this backdrop at their mainstore and marketplace! Visit the mainstore to see a demo. The cityscape background is not part of the Escape Room backdrop, but everything else is.
