"Eyes of A Fallen Angel, Eyes of A Tragedy..."


{Taken at Dystopia}

YaaaaaaY It's the weekend my luvs! We can celebrate. For a minute anyway!
Sometimes in Second Life, I fan girl. I feel silly about it at times but it doesn't matter that this is a virtual world, talent is talent no matter where, when, how. I fan girl over styles, bloggers, SL Flickr Artists, SL Creators, SL Designers....I can't be the only one. I see others complain about it sometimes and even I, oddly enough, have been fangirled/fanboi'd before! Where they will come up to me at event or whatever and tell me they love my blog or Flickr pics and I will admit, it feels pretty awesome just to get a small pat on the back, a lil bit of acknowledgment when I am out and about. 
So, never be surprised if I run up to you and say hi. I am a blogger who still faithfully follows lots of blogs, I applaud and support them. I love running into SL designers and saying hi too and letting them know how much I love their creations. Sometimes they're cordial, sometimes they're not lol. If the latter occurs, I pretend it didn't and move on and remember not to talk to them again. Maybe they're a private person, maybe they had a bad day, maybe they were busy but in any case...I did my part.
So one of the SL designers I love to fan girl over, and WAS cordial with me when I ran into her at Shiny Shabby once, is Valentina. When I run into her creations in SL, it's pretty much guaranteed I am going to buy it lol. I can't help myself. I don't think there is no one general style to her and I kinda love that. I have mixed her outfits/dresses/etc. with many different things in many different styles of clothing. It's unique, it's detailed, it fits wonderfully, comes in many different colors, what else can you ask for? The outfit I am wearing here is just another one I marked down as one of my favorites and received so many compliments for! So I hope you'll all introduce yourselves to that shop, if by freak chance you haven't already. 
Actually...come to think of it...this entire post is full of my favs that I fan girl for. Glam Affair, Shi, Eudora, and Valentina <3
I will be back again soon my luffs! Have a great weekend!

Lookin' California, Feelin' Minnesota!

{Taken Outside of the Hard Alley Club}

Hey guys and dolls! 
I hope I am finding you all in good spirits. The weekend approaches soon. I should be happy about it but I can't be lol. I've had the week off, (not by choice!) and will be returning to work Monday. The days off have been nice though and much needed in so many ways. I've been sick and simply needed the rest so I am thankful to have had these few days to spend at home. It also gave me a few more chances to pop in SL and enjoy all the shopping, events, and visits with the people I adore. 
Speaking of people I adore, DRBC recently released this adorbs dress that I knew a lot of my readers would just fall in love with! This is one of my favorite prints but she made a plethora of them, so you have a ton of options, polka dots galore and a Hello Sailor! one that is to die for! Make sure you follow DRBC (as linked above) on Facebook for updates on recent releases.
I couldn't help but take advantage of someones ride parked outside of the new Hard Alley Club! That's right, Hard Alleys Retroville has moved sims! So make sure to pop over and visit. The club is active with some pretty awesome DJ's! The music ranges from punk to rock to...just everything! The company is great and  oh yeah....I hang out there so that's a bonus right?! Come over and get down with us sometime!
Be back in two shakes of a lambs tail <3

Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock Oh!


{Taken at Dysphoria}

Tick-tock, Tick-tock! I know! I heard the sound of the clock, the tapping of the nails, the tapping of the feet, the knocks at the door, the messages...but I am here my luvs! And yes I did in fact miss you! I missed my blog, I missed my inspiration! It has been such a hellish couple of months for me. I am trying my best to keep in touch and to hop back on this horse. It's hard to find inspiration though when your world is dimmed. I know some of you know exactly where I am coming from. The holidays are out the window now though so I've been able to get back to a more steady routine of being online and seeing all the awesomeness.
I couldn't help myself with the new Remarkable Oblivion at Epiphany! Wow what an event! Admittedly, gachas piss me off! I'm sorry, I can't word that any differently lol. I am sitting there pumping you full of my money, treat me to dinner or something damn it! Haha. I was able to snag some goodies though with not that much effort! Luck on my side? Maybeh! ALSO, and maybe I'm the only one here who was too excited and didn't read or something but I didn't know that most of the designers there placed their exclusives in their own shops so you don't have to go back over and over again to spend your points. Quick run down in case you haven't checked it out. The event is all about gachas. Once you've bought all the things, rezzed them out, you get a quick pop-up asking you if you want to keep your item or not (careful there!). If you choose not to keep it, you get a point. Rares give you more points. There are items available at this event that you can ONLY get with those extra points. I chose the Remarkable Oblivion Tea Party Table. Here is a nifty lil list of all the creators who have their exclusives out at their shops!
I'm also repping for Glam Affair in this one. One of the only skin places that can make me take off my mesh head and appreciate my system head haha. Gorgeous skin at Kustom 9! 
I also have a splash of FK! Designs as well. Awesome masks that seemed perfect to play the part of my Red Queen!
Okay luvs, I am still here, I still luv you, I will be back soon! <3

A Fantasy Frozen In Time


{Taken Here}

My goodness! Darn that Gia for taking her sweet ass time to get back to SL! ;) My apologies for the absence luvs. October, November, December are busy for me, like so many other people. But even beyond that, our family was just tossed around in a series of unfortunate events and with the sadness, my inspiration was at a stand still. I know so many of us have had to deal with it, so I know you'll be understanding with me. I am not going to go into too many personal issues, they're a bummer, believe me. But I do want to say something. 
We always hear the 'Tomorrow is never promised' saying but seriously, I mean it....please remember it. You can see someone one day and they are gone forever the next. So love people in your life every day as if you'll never see them again. Don't ever be afraid to be that passionate. You have to be. With so much hatred in this world, be the rebel and love! Life is so precious. I have to remind myself of it all the time.
This is also a time for depression to just sky rocket. Why? Maybe it's that we're so broke. Memories attached to this time of year. Remembering loved ones that aren't here to celebrate with us anymore. It's all of the above for me. It's fucking rough. There's simply no other way to put it. I guess the important thing is to try. Small victories are great. You put pants on today? Go you! You rock!
I am coming around though and have a ton of things to catch up on with a few, oh you know, several thousand ideas on the side! I've been watching and reading and listening to a lot of interesting things that are helping to spark up ideas so, it should be fun!

IN OTHER NEWS---

My other half in SL, my bestfriend Dizzy sent me an amazing gift a couple weeks ago, the LOGO Mesh head! I am so in love with it. It's really gorgeous with it's supple lips and rounded features, emotions HUD and all that other good stuff. All that and then Glam Affair makes appliers for it! I hope you've all have a chance to give them a try, the Glam Affair applier is beautiful!
The Polar Glam Affair skin tone is probably one of my favorites. It's pale...need I say more? Haha. Not just pale, it's just got an all around soft paleness to it. I fantasy-themed pic came to mind and paired with Vibe Poses, I had a blast <3
Play grabby hands with all the things linked below and stick around Gia's World, I will be back soon!

Chasing Cthulhu


Ahoy Mateys!
Yes yes, Gia had a little break..it was much needed. I don't ever feel the need to announce it here. I guess I just feel secure enough with you all and know that YOU know I will be back soon enough. So far, it's worked for us pretty well. I hope I am finding you all in good health and stuff.
I stated in a previous blog post that I ran into a podcast I love. Not only that, the whole podcast world blew right up for me and since then I've found several. Another one I love is the H.P. Lovecraft podcast. It's basically a couple of dudes talking about the works of, of course, none other than, H.P. Lovecraft. I'm oh...kind of a Lovecraft fan!
Anyway, I was so excited after the podcast that while on break at my RL job, I brought it up and, silly me, I guess I assumed everyone knew Lovecraft! Nope, I just looked like a nerd I guess. nobody knew what I was talking about and so when I went into short descriptions of some of my favorite stories (Of course starting with 'The Call of Cthulhu'!), it sparked a pretty interesting discussion. One of my co-workers blurted out, 'Oh I read romance novels and occasionally a mystery but I don't really read that guy stuff.' .....Excuse me?! What exactly is 'Guy Stuff' when it comes to reading? Can you even label it like that and have it make any kind of sense? I know it was just her ignorance. Surely not all of us women are supposed to read romance novels all day, right?! Please tell me I am right. If that's not the case, well then...I guess I'm a dude! Along with all the rest of the women that love sci-fi? Lovecraft? Whatever she was trying to say. She couldn't really answer me when I did ask her what exactly she meant. She responded with a 'Oh you know, guys mostly read that kind of stuff.' I had to laugh. I informed her I fell in love with Lovecraft and that whole entire genre when I was just a kid. I had siblings that brought me into it but still.
It irritates me that THAT mindset even exists. It honestly has to stop. It's what keeps me from making any kind of friends in RL. It's so very hard to find another woman who I can sit down with and discuss for example Lovecraft, or my love for the horror genre or gaming even! Maybe it's just in my neck of the woods, is it? Do any of you run into this issue in RL or in SL? They like pink, I like black. They like Hallmark Channel, I am horror....etc, etc, etc.  One of the many reasons I love Second Life! It has brought so many of my fellow weirdos close to me and so even though they're not right next door, I do have friends.
So with all thoughts of finding Cthulhu, I set out on a voyage!
Remarkable Oblivion again just always amazes me. Enchantment this round is pretty epic so I hope you've all been out there to snag all the stuff. I know it's hard with all the events going on. Even us as bloggers (at least me, lemme speak for myself here lol) have a hard time keeping up with alllll of these events. I love them though, especially when they are themed. I think it pushes the designers to get creative and I love seeing what they will come up with! Dead Dollz was another fav of mine for this round of Enchantment, Cerberus Xing too! All featured here. I wont hold you any longer though, but will be back soon! <3

"She's A Myth That I Have to Believe In.."

{Taken at Ironwood Hills}


Places in Second Life have slowly started to become covered in all the fluffy white stuff...yes, I do mean snow. Right now, I appreciate it. I am from the northern part of the U.S. so I grew up around many feet of snow during the winter. Winter just isn't winter unless you have to navigate icy roads and can sit in the back yard building igloos. Well, we tried anyway. We never actually could get to the ceiling part of it, we'd just get some pretty high walls going before my siblings wanted to start an all out snowball war and then...the walls were no more. 
The sim owners in Second Life have such talent though. I don't know how they manage to pull an entire place together. The smallest details are always what get me. Ironwood Hills has been a favorite of mine, several of my blog pictures are linked back to it. Creepy and gorgeous with one of the best graveyards in Second Life. Make sure to pay it a visit.
Remarkable Oblivion has given us some more wings to play with. So many of us are still in the RO wings that were released awhile ago. Just like those, these are also gorgeous! With a darker vibe though, at least that's how I saw it. These are available at We <3 Roleplay, be sure not to miss them!
I will see you again soon luvs!  Much to show, so little time <3

Summoning Spirits, Snuggling Cats


Hey guys and dolls! Welcome to another day in Gia's World. I hope you're all doing well, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

This is a month where I just embrace all my introvert and I look forward to my weekends of snuggling and warm drinks. You know, a nice 'Netflix and chill'. BTW...oh my goodness, did you know that phrase there, 'Netflix and chill' means something sexual?! I didn't. Out of sheer boredom, I looked it up and guess what, it means to invite someone over and...basically have sex while Netflix is going in the background. I don't get people these days haha. I am known to turn even the most innocent things into something pervy but that is just random. I don't mean random in a good way either...I more so mean that it doesn't make any damn sense. Be creative. And they ruined it for the rest of us that actually just want to chill while watching Netflix damn it! I guess this is where my age starts showing. Damn kids and their ridiculousness! Lol-
Speaking of, I devoured 'Ghost Adventures' on Netflix. I love it. I mean, I know the guys are silly but that's what makes the show for me. Who doesn't love Spooky with a side of Silly? It reminded me just how much I am in love with all things paranormal. Paranormal everything has been taking over my days lately so, pre warning...be prepared for future pics that may be inspired by my love for the paranormal!
But anyway, there are many things I love about The Pose Shop but one of the main things is that she surely can capture a realistic cozy pose and bring it into our SL. I so love my poses! I hope you've had a chance to check out the Sad November event. If you have, I hope you stopped at The Pose Shop's booth and snagged these adorbs poses!! This is a Sad November Exclusive so once it's going you're never going to see it again EVAR! Lol dramatics. Just go get it. You will love the snugs.
My DRBC top went right with my creepy but cute vibe here. That is DRBC though! Creepy and Cute! This top is on the market place only right now. To my 'goths' and darker people, this is a great addition for your fall wardrobe! With its attached sweater, and the many different prints, you will want this one around!
I will see you all again in just a bit, I've already got a pic going and I am super excited for it but in the mean time, yes, snuggle all the kitties with me! <3

Thanks to my Kuppy for letting me use her crib!
