Native Spirit

For those who don’t know, the Imaginarium is a new’ish event by Gimme Gacha Productions. I like to think of it as a mix of gacha, sale and new release event and a great way to discover new stores and see what your favourites are up to. Petite Mort have released a new furniture set at The Imaginarium and coupled with some lovely pieces by The Artist Shed and Heart Designs, it’s a perfect lounge set. There’s plenty more in the gacha to win, so check it out. Personally, I’m going to grab one of these cookies and settle down to watch some tv. The tray dispenses cookies you wear/eat, so it ticks my sweet tooth box. Speaking of box, time for some Netflix. I finished “I am not okay with this” recently and wow – that was an explosive ending!

It’s all about the heel

Ohh I *do* love a killer heel. In RL, I tend to avoid them but in SL, the higher the better. There’s no need to worry about twisted ankles or the effects of too much gin tipping you over in front of a policeman, leading to your knickers being flashed at them (a story for another day, perhaps). No, in SL we can be graceful, statuesque and frankly have pins all the way to our eyeballs (and some people do). So embrace those heels ladies, embrace them and drink more gin!

Daytime drinking

Wynn was done being cute and fluffy; it was time to get edgy. Clutching her rucksack (and mentally noting that she’d need an edgier back next time), she decided to head to the city and do some daytime drinking. Only problem: her bottle of booze was lemonade and by 2pm she wanted a nap. Truly hardcore Wynn in action *sigh*

Aletta

Even though it’s nearly the end of February (and a horrid rainy day outside), I’m happy to report new beginnings and positivity inworld. The Trunk Show has opened it’s doors for the first round of 2020 and if you love all things feminine and wedding focused, this is the event to visit. I love showing that pieces at the event can be ‘dressed down’ as well as ‘dressed up’ and this cute top, paired with my new fave denim skirt is perfect Spring femme casual. The skirt is actually part of a 2-in-1 dress ensemble, complete with a ton of texture options to play with, so make sure you check it out too. Finally my hair – I’m so happy to report that Sn@tch is back and actively creating again. The owner hasn’t been well since last year, but is back on her feet and treating us once more to awesome designs. Make sure you check out the stores and events below for further goodies and remember to enjoy your day 🙂

Vintage Valentines

Traditionally, Valentines tends to be pink, fluffy and all things cute. Throw in a plushie, a love heart and plenty of chocolate. Make it uber girly and add some sparkle. It just doesn’t appeal to me these days! Perhaps in years gone by this would have appealed, because I am a romantic at heart but now, my definition of romance has changed. It isn’t about big displays of affection or spending stupid amounts of money. It’s about little thoughtful moments, for example talking and holding hands on the couch while you share a meal. It’s about taking time to be with the one you love, sharing their burdens, lifting their spirits and having yours lifted, in turn. It’s the little words, signs and gestures that show love and care. They don’t cost much but are priceless and create precious memories that will tide you over if you’re having a low day ❤

Sparkle Wherever You Go

I couldn’t resist making this quote my blog post title, it’s a perfect little life mantra. Be the one who lights up the room, the one who sparkles. Admittedly your definition of “lighting up the room” may be switching on the light…but there you go, we all interpret things in different ways 😀

As it’s February, be prepared to be hit with all things girly, cute, pink and Valentine’s themed ….. until the 14th! There is always a temptation to go Anti-Valentines and stick two fingers up to the whole event, but I’m a girl who loves romance and affection, so I’m all out for the pink. Gimme love, bishes! Both Mystical Market and the Broken Heart Fair run until the middle of the month, so be quick if you want to check them out (I have and they’re fab!) The Stupid Cupid Hunt is back for it’s 8th year running (!!) and all prizes are 1L when you find them in each store. Good luck hunting, have fun shopping and remember most of all…sparkle wherever you go ❤

Boho Bliss

As I enter the second day of feeling totally grotty with this viral infection, I do what any girl would do in my situation. Well, after having watched some tv, fallen asleep on the sofa, been woken up by the cat blaring the call of her people at me….I do what any girl would do in my situation. I shop. Or, more specifically, I hunt. SL Hunts are still a thing people and good fun at that too! I love a hunt, because often it’s a great way to discover new stores or if you are already a fan of a store, pick up some lovely items for amazing prices. The Boho Bliss Hunt contains all exclusively textured prizes and are priced between 10-20L apiece. With 10 pieces to collect (and the hunt basket is free and wearable), you have a mini outfit capsule ready for the month. The hunt key is below:

BOHO BLISS HUNT AD

I also wanted to show you the Creative Cafe and urge you to visit! Created by the lovely Deva Westland, it’s a little piece of mainland heaven, perfectly recreating a little cafe with an outdoor art gallery to enjoy too. The Mister and I have visited and enjoyed wandering through the gallery. There are also little couples seating areas, which I love and I am sure you will too. Bring a friend or a date and have fun exploring. Thank you Deva for creating this little spot for everyone to enjoy x
