High heels and cherry wine

High heels and cherry wine

So get out of my way
If you know what’s better for you
I’m tearing up the night
Lipstick and leather tight…

Back when I arrived to Berlin, my pals and I from the Sprachschule had some sort of midweek tradition: Wednesday nights weren’t for homework and early bed. We’d hit the clubs and dance our hearts off, fueled by tequila and Jägermeister shots until 4 am or so. Thursday morning class would be half empty and reeking of hangover, yes, but tonight we’re tearing up the night.

High heels and cherry wine
Not wasting any time…

Said high heels are Vernice, the latest from Renegade, perfect to look classy, trendy, cool, while you rock the dance floor or just chill on the lounge. I went with the snake skin texture on green, and I’m living for it. Now I’ll go help myself to some of that cherry wine…

Gipta 1

We don’t look for trouble,
Just enough to seeing double…

The fresh look on my face comes from the beautiful Lucie skin, current group gift at 7 Deadly S{k}ins. I matched it with the new body appliers, which include different options for showing moles, freckles, or clear skin. Come closer… let me show you something…

These cool little shamrock-shaped piercings are the new Gipta, by Drunken Brokkr. They’re on sale, incredibly reduced, until the end of March. Find your ride to Brokkr’s forge HERE.

Here comes, comes the weekend
Hear it calling like a siren oh oh
We don’t want no problems
We don’t like them, keep it moving

I don’t wanna feel blue


Bad girl, drunk by six
Kissing someone else’s lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I’m not happy when I act this way

Neon lights, smoke, and noise, all the human smells, fake smiles and more noise… perhaps that will muffle the whispers I don’t want to hear, the thoughts that roam my mind until I drown them away, until I dance them away, until I fuck them away.
Bad girl 2Let’s spin once again on my furiously high Trinity shoes, by Renegade. Their sinuous Gothic texture shines under the flickering lights as I fall. I laugh, I light another cigarette, and I keep dancing while the world swirls around me.

I close my eyes, I almost see myself. No sweat on my face, no make up, just the flawless natural beauty of my Katie skin, an exclusive creation  by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Designer Showcase. I could not resist the sombre beauty of Zuri Jewelry‘s Only You Rose in this dark new edition, currently on sale as part of Zuri’s Steals & Deals.

Bad girl 1

Is it me or you that I’m afraid of
I tell myself I’ll show you what I’m made of
Can’t bring myself to let you go

Quotes: “Bad Girl ”, by Madonna.

A lonely habit

Feels so effortless to be a stranger
But feeling foreign is such a lonely habit
You can’t crop yourself out of the picture
Out-of-focus but still framed inside
Well, Berlin got blurry
And my heart started hurting for you


The ruthless wind of Berlin hurts my face as I walk through these familiar streets. I can’t seem to figure out my feelings for this town, ranging from believing firmly that I was forever destined to live here, to this persistent sense of expat detachment that sometimes invades me. Berlin is all I had ever dreamed of since before I ever knew it, even though the weather hates me with a passion, and the language laughs at my silly attempts to babble in it… Here I had never felt so happy, and so miserable at the same time. I had never been so wonderfully loved, and so dreadfully lonely at the same time.

It’s my true home.

In other words, I love you…

In other words, I love you…

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars…

Those were stressful days. We had a new home, our first home together, and all our days were consumed trying to find the perfect kitchen, the right curtains, the color of the walls. We were exhausted. But he was happy, oh, so happy. He hummed and sang “Fly me to the moon” over and over in the most romantic “ear worm” ever. The night we finally moved in, we dressed up and he played the song, in his favorite Sinatra version, and we danced together among all our cardboard boxes.

Valentine 2

I felt like a beautiful diva clad in a sumptuous gown, adorned with this gorgeous new Dahlia collection by Zuri Jewelry, while I turned and danced in his arms. A couple of years later, we held each other on our first wedding dance to this song, whispering the lyrics while our family and friends watched us with watery happy eyes.

Mushy reminiscing aside, I wanted to recreate this diva in love. I chose the lovely Lumi skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at the Designer Circle for a couple more days, with the complete body applier for moles and freckles (from the main store).

Valentine 1

I added the 7DS Juicy lipstick in the tone prune, and Izzie’s special Valentine’s make up. Now I’m ready to keep dancing in the arms of the man I love.

Zero, you are my love in real life, in Second Life, and in all my lives. Every twisted path in my life led me to you, and I love you always.

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

Your presence still lingers here

Your presence still lingers here

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

I’m alone with the shadows, the tic-tac of the clock and its echo, and my memories of you. Soon, I will feast my sorrows away. I will gorge on broken heart cookies and other sorrowful, yet delicious pastries, an exclusive creation from The Roawenwood that you can collect at The Gacha Garden. Others may have the bright cupcakes that taste of promises and love; I will just bite the head off this voodoo doll shaped cookie.


I wipe chocolate from my fingers on my skirt, and I don’t even care that I’m smudging the delicate fabric of my Violetta dress, beautifully crafted by the Silvan Moon dream team exclusively for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. It feels designed just for my figure, my empty and lonely figure, or perhaps even too pretty for me.

I help myself to another cookie and tears start running down my face.

Heartbreak 2

I try to wipe away the tears, but I smudge lipstick across my Becky caramel skin, by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, one of the previous group gifts that made part of the special celebrations at the store. The current group gift is a set of matching lip glosses for this beautiful face, now all smeared on the cute little mole as I stare at my broken dreams.

Heartbreak 3

Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face, it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me

Every day is Valentine’s Day


My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart…

There’s something about Chet Baker’s songs… they can drive to tears, or stir the most delicious sensuality. Or both. I can’t see you, but your scent feels close. A rustle of the rug, and I know where you are. I feel your eager touch on my new Tabitha skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at eBento starting in just two days (February 10th). Tabitha has the natural beauty of a woman next door with adorable dimples, and she is available in many skin tones. I’m wearing “cashew”, with the Clarity Lipsticks by 7DS, now at Ultra until February 10th (hurry!).


That cute little heart-shaped lip ring is Herza, by Drunken Brokkr. It’s new, it includes a texture HUD with several metal colors, and it’s on sale until Valentine’s Day. Drunken Brokkr is a new facial piercing line, created by my husband and me. He does most of the heavy lifting, of course. I’m very excited to join him in this new adventure. Here is your ride to Drunken Brokkr.

But don’t change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay 
Each day is Valentine’s Day

Quotes: “My funny Valentine”, by Chet Baker.

I’m adding here a formal vendor picture of the skin, so you can see her lovely eyes and eyebrows:


In love with my sorrow


Don’t want to let it lay me down this time
Drown my will to fly
Here in the darkness I know myself
Can’t break free until I let it go


A velvet-like voice fills the winter evening while I sit in the dark, singing along that I, too, want to stay in love with my sorrow. Avid tears run down my Ginger skin, one of the latest creations by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at the Cosmetic Fair in February. I chose the beautiful Fudge tone, and even though it’s more than a month away from release, I couldn’t wait to show you these beautiful features.
