Midsummer Enchantment Time.

For those who love their fashion, home and garden Gothic, Whimsical, Fae or Bohemian, Midsummer Enchantment has just opened and is packed with goodies to enjoy. The event runs until the end of the month, so you have two weeks to pop along and check things out. There is also a 5L hunt on the sim, so keep your eye out for little purple masquerade masks as they contain little treats. I’ve photographed a few of them here for you. One thing I love about the event is the build and the event organisers always provide perfect nooks and crannies – it’s a blogger’s delight. My scene is within the shopping event itself. See if you can spot it yourself.

On to the essential information…….

The website, with shopping guide is HERE

Enjoy – and remember, the event ends on the 30th June – so don’t miss out!

Karaoke Blues

You know the scene, don’t deny it because we’ve all been there. One too many glasses of wine (or your favourite beverage) and all of a sudden you’re a Karaoke Diva! Grabbing the microphone from others, flirting on stage, heck even blowing kisses to the embarrassed, more sober partner in the corner. Yep, that’s me and a night where I turned every Shania Twain song into smut has etched itself into my memory. Ahhhh, happy times 😀

Indila

As we approach the end of the weekend (and the end of the month), I always consider this a time for reflection. We survived the week, people! Heck, we survived January! All the cold, the post Christmas misery; we made it through in one piece and we live to survive February too! I have no idea what the future will bring, but finding out…that’s part of the spice of life.

Make sure you use the last few days of the month to check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which is in it’s final days too. There are a mix of heavily reduced sale items, 5L hunt items and exclusives available to browse and purchase. A perfect way to end the week, in my opinion, with a little shopping 🙂

Shopping Trip

I love a good shopping trip, both in RL and SL. I have to be in the mood for it, but get me going and …. well, the blood gets pumping!

Inworld I tend to shop at events, although I’m trying to get to mainstores more. In fact, if you have time today check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which has just started and runs to the 3rd February. Everything is at least 50% reduced and there’s also a 5L hunt (check out my hair, hint hint).

In RL my shopping habits have changed and I mostly shop online now. I feel sad for my local high street because I’m that shopper that should be attracted back into their shops but I enjoy the convenience of shopping online too much. The only time I’ll pop into a store is to buy jeans and trousers because, well, ladies….you all know how flipping hard it is to find a decent pair that fits!

On that note, I’m going to take advantage of my peaceful Sunday morning and get a little more shopping done. I hope you all have lovely weekends ❤

When the Mister talks fashion

It isn’t often the Mister talks fashion…willingly…with me. Usually, if I get him within spitting distance of a shop or event inworld, I get a multitude of unimpressed “pfffts” in my ear along with a few choice words. So, when I showed him this jumpsuit and chatted about matching heels (Sheba…you can’t go wrong with these little gems!) he was surprisingly chatty on the subject.

ChicModa: it’s official. The Mister likes the ruffles along the leg. The Mister likes the colour choice hud (available as a fatpack). You get a gold star. Cherish it well because these things are rarer than rocking horse poop (a choice phrase).

I also tried Powder Pack for the first time this month as it is the anniversary edition. I’m impressed with the range of options in each pack: a multitude of makeup, lashes, brows, eyes and skins. All fatpacks. We all know how much a fatpack of skins alone can cost; that’s a small fortune in itself, so to get another 11 items in the pack is a good deal to me. The other thing I like about Powder Pack is that it’s available on Marketplace and you buy for your specific mesh head type. No more ditching half the stock because it doesn’t fit, which I know has been a bugbear with clothing boxes in the past. All in all, hats off to you Powder Pack. I may well buy again in the future 🙂

Malory

And here we go…another New Year! I woke this morning with the best of intentions and now a box of chocolates are calling my name. I *may* succumb…..but who knows? You can’t blame a girl with good intentions.

Shine Bright <3

We all have a chance to shine. We choose how brightly (or dimly) we shine in life and in turn, our choices and actions cause others to shine too. I intend to shine brightly next year and I hope you do too x
