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.

Autumn is Nature’s last party of the year

Autumn is Nature’s last party of the year. And dressing for the occasion, forests don their brightest attire, while the creatures follow suit with plush coats of fur. As the birds savor their final flights in the waning embers of light, Nature’s children scamper about in search of manna for their winter pantries, pausing long enough to frolic in the heaps of newly fallen leaves.

Tu és divina e graciosa, estátua majestosa
Do amor, por Deus esculturada
E formada com ardor
Da alma da mais linda flor de mais ativo olor
Que na vida é preferida pelo beija-flor

Excerpt translation into English

Because my love is come to me

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a watered shoot;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in the halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these
Because my love is come to me.
~Christina Roessetti~

The loneliest moment

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
