Never say goodbye

Dear friends,

Without further introductions, I am writing this post to inform you that I am closing down my fashion blog. It will still be online for a few more months but I won’t be updating it anymore. I have been blogging for over two years – which isn’t much if we take all the other amazing SL bloggers into consideration – but I have decided to close it. This has been a difficult decision to make, but it feels like the right one.

My blog began at a point in my second life where I needed an outlet to develop my styling and photography skills. I have enjoyed every minute of blogging and I have had the privilege of meeting quite incredible people along the way.

I won’t be leaving SL. I intend to keep logging in every day. I will however focus in other activities such as developing my photography skills as well as modelling. From now on, you can keep following my work through my flickr. will still be my homepage where one can access general information about me, my modelling resume and my work.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all my sponsors for believing in my work by giving me the opportunity of showcasing their beautiful designs.

And of course, a heartfelt thank you to all my readers who followed my blog on a daily basis, showing their support and interest in my work. Thank you to my dear and closest friends who keep walking right by my side supporting me, my choices and my work through my worries and doubts, my restlessness, my happy times and not-so-happy moments.

I carry you all in my heart. Thank you for being part of my life.
Love, Anouk

Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.

My thoughts are minutes

I wasted time, and now doth time waste me;
For now hath time made me his numbering clock:
My thoughts are minutes; and with sighs they jar
Their watches on unto mine eyes, the outward watch,
Whereto my finger, like a dial’s point,
Is pointing still, in cleansing them from tears.
Now sir, the sound that tells what hour it is
Are clamorous groans, which strike upon my heart,
Which is the bell: so sighs and tears and groans
Show minutes, times, and hours.
~William Shakespeare~

The imaginary world is infinite

The real world has its limits; the imaginary world is infinite. Unable to enlarge the one, let us restrict the other, for it is from the difference between the two alone that are born all the pains which make us truly unhappy.
