A couple'a few items here today. Very quickly showing you the undies available in the CandyDoll Epiphany gacha - I have plans to showcase more of this gorgeous set in the not-too-distant future.

I'm visualizing here. It's a technique I've picked up from my hours of netflixing, youtubing and generally attempting to think positively about life.
The idea of visualizing is seeing yourself in the future, doing the thing you love. Having the relationships you want. Finding the contentment you long for.
 Although I'm not heavily into D/s I do believe in a lot of the values that come along with it.. and believe that there are certain things that should be discussed before taking any sort of relationship to a next level. 
Honesty. Respect. Consent. Loyalty. Commitment.
Those are just five words we often throw around without much thought, and without thinking through the consequences. Much like D/s those words mean different things to different people, and it's important to understand where your partner is coming from when you're making decisions.
So often, I see facebook posts from people who have thrown themselves into new relationships and have opened themselves up too quickly, backing down on what they want because someone has shown them a form of affection that they might be able to understand and identify. So many times I watch as the same patterns emerge - patterns that my own relationships have mirrored - and it breaks my heart that the people involved - beautiful people, capable and worthy of love and loving, are hurt because they haven't taken the time to really get to know the person they coupled with.

So, my Pickle-ism for the day is take your time.
Hopefully, I'll take my own advice next time, too.
xoxo

Can't keep up.


Pose : FOXCITY. Melancholy-7

Background : wr - the tiles need fixing 

There is so much brain activity going on in my head right now I'm kind of struggling to function.
This is amplified by the fact I've managed to completely screw up my sleep schedule! I'm mad at myself, but I know this is just me taking a step backwards before starting off onto my whole "New Pickle" regime again. 
I've been joking lately that I'm going through an entire mid-life crisis. I feel like maybe I'm a little bit young to actually have a mid-life crisis, but then I remember that I'm only 19 in my head, and maybe it's completely appropriate to feel like a post-pubescent teenager again, 19 years later. (shh. I'm old ok?)
Ideally, I would use this time to buy a brand new car (preferably something fancy - and red. A Porche convertible, because it is Summer here, after all.) and then I remember I can't drive, so that goes out of the window. I'd also like a toy-boy... but only in theory. I've figured out that toy-boys are lovely to look at, but I don't game, don't like anime, and get tired of innuendos fairly quickly, so I reckon I'll just stick with single-dom until the crisis subsides!

I hope your Friday outlook is bright - don't forget to grab your 50L friday goodies!

In my heart.


Background : BUENO-Studio Skybox-Panda @ The Seasons Story

I'm so lucky sometimes.
I really do believe I have met some of the best people to have come into my life through SL. Strong, vibrant people, who have been terrifically broken, but who turn those breaks into something positive and who are capable of not only showing extreme realness, but who have enough energy to smother me in love and kindness whenever I feel low, too.
I could write their names here, but the chances are, you won't know them - and I'm not sure I want you to either. They're MY friends. MY people. MY circle, and I'm possessive. :P
I was chatting to one lovely lady today, and she tried desperately to tell me she was broken. My response was something along the lines of "Broken? You're the strongest person I know."
And it was then I realized that I feel broken, too. I'm pretty sure most of us feel that way at some point in our lives. I then remembered the story of Japanese Pottery. Bit out there, I know..

"In japan broken objects are often repaired with Gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object's history, which adds to its beauty."

Wouldn't it be lovely if we looked at people and saw the beauty of them, through their flaws? How strong and golden their very existence is?
I'm all filled with hearts and flowers today, and I hope you can take a moment to notice how lucky you are too, because there really is always something to be thankful for, no matter how small.

Want some?


Pose & Cash : *!R.O!* Assets BENTO Couple Pose w/ Mesh Money

Background & Props : {moss&mink} Deep Desires @ Epiphany
Includes : {moss&mink} Deep Desires - Skybox (White) RARE
{moss&mink} Deep Desires - Dance Pole (White)
{moss&mink} Deep Desires - Toys Shelf (White)
{moss&mink} Deep Desires - Twinkle Gems (Pink)

I'm featuring some of my very favourite sponsors here today, the first being Moss&Mink, and although I'm aware that you can't see much of the detail involved in this Epiphany set on this post - I have all the plans to show off more of this freakin' beautiful set in future pictures.
I was lucky enough to be involved with Cielo's creative process on this set, I listened as she came up with idea's on the fly and am secretly jealous of her amazingly imaginative brain. She's a creator who will actively listen to her customer base, she'll interact and ask for opinions and will try her hardest to apply many of the suggestions she receives in updates and upcoming releases. I cannot sing her praises enough - and yes, I'm biased, because she is one of my best friends.

Dappa! I legit dragged my alt, Paloma, back into this picture specifically to show off two Dappa tattoos and this is down to the fact that the speed at which they are being produced - seriously, he's KILLING it! Not only are Dappa becoming far more prolific in terms of events, but the quality he is producing is actually improving, every time. 

Of course, the pose is from Reve Obscura. I sincerely believe that he is one of the very best bento pose makers in SL. I rarely need to adjust anything to 'fit' (I did unlink the poses here and give them a wiggle, but I think that's down to the fact that both Paloma and Pickle are thicker avatars.) For many poses, I will use animare to yank out a hand from my stomach/leg/other random body part. I can't imagine how hard it is to develop these poses for every body-type, but R.O has always come through for me!

Here - find some things in the info below!

Perception.


Pose : *!R.O!* Perspective BENTO Pose (Comes with Mesh Sunglasses - not shown)

Sunglasses : .miss chelsea. Gaia Sunglasses Bold @ The Epiphany

Location : LaZy DaZe Surf Beach

Epiphany opens today at 10pm SLT, and I for one am super excited, as a few of my favourite stores will be participating!
Of course, Miss Chelsea is one of those stores, and they've provided this super cute outfit - from hairband to shoes, and a few extra pieces in between.
I paired that with this Dappa tattoo, because the delicacy appealed to me in terms of boho-ness.
As usual, there's more pictures below, along with landmarks and things!
