This Point of Destruction Is Where You Find Yourself


Hey luvs!

In  my last post, I talked a bit about venturing away from fashion in my blog and exploring other things more. I don't and won't leave fashion behind, I love it too much. However, there are times when I would just like to express myself in photography. Not share all the links to all the things.
If I don't link it, and you want it or are curious about it, please feel free to leave a comment here or on my Facebook page and I will respond as soon as possible.

I took this picture awhile ago, when I started falling into that rut I talked about in the previous post. This represents a lot for me, both in RL and in SL. This is how I felt at that time. Don't worry though, Don't worry! I feel so much better. It's a battle to get out of something like that but that cliche saying, that over used saying "There's nowhere to go but up once you hit rock bottom!", it's very true.

This is the first of many little artsy posts so do enjoy it! I know I am going to love this side of Gia's World and I hope you do too!

Finding My Way Out of The Fog

{Taken at Ironwood Hills}

Oh where, oh where has that Giiiiia gone?!
Hey luvs! I've missed you, I really have. I wanted to touch base and just let you all know what was going on.
I know its been while since I've posted anything. Almost two months now! It's not like I haven't taken pictures...I have. I just got into this kind of rut (still am there btw) where I just have to find myself. Find what I want to do and how I want to move forward with Gia's World. I don't really think fashion blogging is my ultimate goal. I've never been a blogger about the sponsors or freebies.
I love clothes and all the styles in Second Life, don't get me wrong. I am sure I will always have fashion as a part of Gia's World but I think I'd like to be artsy on occasion...or more so than not, you know?
It's always taken me forever to blog and that's because I love storytelling in my pictures! I love making it look like you're peeking into someones life, even if for a moment. I don't find any sort of excitement standing in front of a wall and showing you my virtual fashion. There's a shit ton of blogs out there like that though! ...But I don't think that will be Gia's World.
So I am on this break....
I am also working on me in RL and it has been pretty awesome. I am not going to go into all the details of it but just know that it's a process and I have to do that before anything. This will allow for a much funner and healthier version of me so please, cheer me on!
So I ask for your patience while Gia's World is under construction! Enjoy the posts I will be doing here and there! Find my official page (linked above) on Facebook and follow me on Flickr too!

Until next time, you're loved <3

White Out




Hey loves!
I have a shit ton to catch up on! I know, I know. I had some fun playing with the new release from Death Row Designs, a wonderful selection of light fixtures that are available at Chapter 4.
There's several different ones to choose from so if you haven't been over to the event, make sure to hop over and grab all the DRD stuff, especially because it is in the 99L room! Lighting is always a great thing to play around with in your SL homes, and as you can see above, even to play around with in pictures <3
Keepin' it short & real. I luv your faces! Be back very soon with all the things I have to haul ass on and some things that I simply think are damn adorbs!

Just A Lil Witchy


{Taken at Netherworld}

Hey guys and dolls! Hope you all enjoyed the weekend and are ready to kick off a new week. 
This blog post is pretty special to me, lemme tell you why. My love for DRBC is no secret to the residents of Gia's World. When I walked into the place upon my return to SL a few years ago, I fell in love with its originality and quality....and then I met the owner who is now someone close to my heart. So, am I bias? Hell yes. There, I admit it. It's official. Take a picture, make a stamp. Now, the owner (Dizzy) is learning to mesh! I, for one, am super excited about it because...I've seen such amazing things from her already and when the possibilities are limitless, I think we're going to be blown away. The first all original DRBC mesh release is out and though it is small, it is precious! All my witchy friends will agree that it is another gem that belongs on you at all times. It is customized for Slink, but as you can see, I am wearing it on Maitreya hands and it was a quick and easy adjustment. It also has a HUD so you can play with color options. Just a heads up, this ring will remain on me, you'll remember, 'ah yeah, that's why Gia wears that ring all the time..'!
My cuuuuute shoes are by none other than FK Designs who has actually dropped a few new releases! I am just forever trying to catch up with these people lol. But make sure you head over to the FK Designs official Facebook Page to keep updated on all the thangs! The clown shoes are a new FK release you will want too!

I found this gem of a sim on Explore Second Life. A lot of bloggers have been there, especially on this train track so...don't be surprised if you see a lot of us here lol. It's an all around gorgeous sim. Tons of little corners, cozy ones, to take pics in, hang out or snuggle, or hang out and snuggle!

Alright loves. Lots to catch up on. I will be around again soon, until then, go show my girl some love and snag the very first all original DRBC mesh ring in all of its witchy gorgeousness!

Skulls & Lingerie

 

Hey luvs! I hope I am finding you all in great spirits <3 
When it comes to 'Goth' fashion...it is very much up in the air. People will argue it forever I think and ultimately, it doesn't matter. What matters in the end is if YOU like it. 
What most of us can agree on is that black is the primary color. We can work with purples and red, blues and greens but pretty much always black. 
There is a model on Facebook who I absolutely adore. People have referred to her as a 'Goth' model, I don't know if you will agree, in any case though, she is just gorgeous! I find her to be breathtakingly stunning and just gawk at her pictures all creeper like lol. She managed to take a very 'gothy' picture without black in it and I simply had to bring it to Second Life!
Look up "Threnody" on Facebook and you will see exactly what I am talking about! You will also see how much she was my RL to SL inspiration. Mind you, nobody can do it as sexy as she does but I damn well tried!
It also gave an opportunity to show off the gorgeous bed set by Death Row Designs at The Secret Affair. It comes with tons of poses, single and adult. (The curtain in the front is not included). Just another gorgeous piece of DRD furniture. The Secret Affair ends on the 31st so only a few days to check it out and grab this bed while you're there!

I just got my PC all upgraded though and it seems to be loving on SL so hopefully I can get going with more projects soon! 
Luv you all a ton! I shall return shortly <3

Feeling Very "Mrs. Mia Wallace"




Hey luvs!
I'm back-ish. I include the 'ish' because, as I posted on the official "Gia's World" Facebook page, my computer has not been playing nice with me when it comes to taking pics in SL. I really had to mess with my settings to take these pics. They're a lot smaller than usual but I had to make adjustments in order to do what I have to do. Otherwise, I was dealing with a very crash happy computer and in the blogger world, that is a serious pain in the ass! Okay so imagine it. I have the outfit on, I finally found the pose, I finally found a location that matched what I had in mind, I made any adjustments to the pose, I finally found a windlight, I prepare to shoot the pic, posed-angled-snap! CRASH. Rinse, wash, and repeat. It was just continuous and driving me up the darn wall. So I made the adjustments which should keep me happy and functioning for now until I get my new computer parts in. I am excited for them.
I had to do a quickie to show off the new Glam Affair skin at Skin Fair, which I know darn well by now, the lot of you have bum rushed it and snagged all the things!
I was feeling very 'Mia Wallace' in this outfit so I really let her free spirit inspire me.
If I haven't declared it before, let me just say it now, I LOVE LOVE me some Quentin! I think he's a genius on film. I loved his movies since before I actually knew they were Quentin movies. Pulp Fiction of course, is one of my all time favs. Also Deathproof, Dusk Til' Dawn, Four Rooms, we'll be here forever...just all of his stuff!
I wont keep you for long today. I have a ton to catch up on and still not too certain about this PC but I am being impatient.
Love you all a ton! See you again shortly, hopefully....if not, then you know my PC exploded with all the tinkering lol <3

"A True Queen Does Not Need A King.."

{Taken at Tales of Ashenborne}

Vikings on  the History channel has started up again! I am such a fan! A friend introduced me to it last year and I plowed through the first few seasons I missed then was able to watch along with everyone else and...now it's back and I am so excited! They haven't failed me yet in acting, story line, eye candy lol. My favorite character is still Lagertha (when they pronounce her name, the R is pretty much silent). I love that she is not made to be the typical female running behind a man, waiting on a man, etc etc. I love that she reigns, I love that she is ruthless, I love that she looks so beautiful and sweet but if you know her, you know how deadly she can be when it comes to protecting her family, herself and her people. 
So when I thought of which direction I wanted to go with this picture, I thought of Lagertha and her brutal beauty. 
The picture was brutal on me too! I don't know why I never thought to take a picture vertically. This is what...my third year of blogging, (close to it anyway lol) and I never flipped my pictures?! This whole time?! Thankfully I have a wonderful friend who sent me in the right direction to accomplish that and a boyfriend who helped me nail it! 
My gorgeous Death Row Designs helmet needed to be featured in its entirety. Every way I was trying to take the picture, it seemed to chop part of it off....and I just couldn't have that! So...I don't know, what do you all do to get the pictures you want? Especially when it comes to this flipping the picture shenanigans! If there is easier tips or tricks, y'all better share! lol
Also, I am so thankful that Azuchi Designs followed me on Flickr when they did because I was just about to go on this total bitch fit about there being a lack of proper armor in Second Life lol. This armor is insanely gorgeous! It actually covers the bewbs! Shocking right?! Why is all female armor made to look so revealing? Some of us would like to imagine that our chest would actually be protected in battle you know!
Won't keep you forever. Arcade is right around the corner, we're about to get real busy and real broke haha. I'm so ready, teleport ready, full alpha ready!
Thanks so much to the people of Ashenborne who let me stand around their sim forever trying to get this picture in! To allll my roleplayers out there, I hope you take a moment to check it out. Looks like it would make for some great roleplay and it seems laid back enough at the same time there's some rules for great game play and smooth rp and leveling! Ladies, keep watch for sexy pirates! I saw a few prowling around!
Be back soon luvs! Enjoy your weekend <3
