Sargasso Sea

I have always been a fan of the classics, especially books written by the Bronte sisters. I can feel the Mister rolling his eyes at me already as I say this to you. Imagine my surprise when I heard of a book “Wild Sargasso Sea”, written in the 1960s, telling the story of the first Mrs Rochester. The Mad Woman in the Attic. Ahh Mr Rochester, you are not a hero, you are an emotional abuser and a possessive, cruel man. We get hints of this in Jane Eyre, but truly witness it in this novel. Much of the story is based in the Caribbean, just after the abolition of slavery. The reader is launched into a world with an abundance of colour, scent, sensation and it is intoxicating. Definitely a book to add to your “must read” list, and I’d love to know your thoughts afterwards. Enjoy x

Careful What You Wish For

Ahh poor foolish Wynn, what have you done? This will teach you to find a book in a secondhand store and try to make your wishes come true. I know you wanted to get away, a vacation from reality, but honestly…..this is not the solution! A solution would be a 747 and a tropical island, not a beanstalk to the sky. On a plus, you’ll still get to work on your tan though. Hmmmmm…..maybe it isn’t such a bad idea after all 😉

Summer Sundays

Good morning my lovelies, here we are once again. Sunday. Ahhh blissful, peaceful Sunday. It’s my quiet time, my Me time and I love it. Copious mugs of tea, reading, watching some TV and maybe a nap. Quite often Princess Kitty takes over the sofa, seeking out the warm spots and stretching out. My little floof here is recreating the scene quite perfectly! I’m allowed a corner while she sprawls.

If you have some time free this weekend, {Poeme} and Ballade are celebrating their 10th year inworld with a sim hunt. The prizes are below and 10L apiece. I especially love my new earrings (which I’ve blogged before) and sandals. The hunt is on until the end of the month, so grab some bargains and see what else is lurking in their stores. Enjoy your Sunday, my lovelies, and have a chilled day x

Summer Graffiti

Putting this outfit together really took me back – about 25 years, truth be told! Don’t mind me as I have a flashback moment and take you back to the mid 90s when this look was completely in fashion. In fact, I’m sure I used to have a very similar necklace! We’re also in the last few days of the Find your Horoscope event, so if you like my lantern and build, these are both event theme related, so be quick. Time is flying, so don’t miss out x
