Hello pumpkin!

Such a cute name for my little friend, hope you don’t mind if I make her introductions for you. Pumpkin may look innocent, but she’s a little devil and loves to cause mischief. She definitely brightens up my day, especially as Monday’s can be such long ones, and so tiring too. Today has been a busy day in real life, so I have enough time to share this cuteness with you before I face plant on the sofa in rl and pass out. After all, October isn’t just about Spooky stuffs. It’s also about Autumnal colours and cuddles with your favourite furry friends in a warm house. Enjoy x

Bouncy Beach Balls.

Well, I promised you a month of bikinis…..but I can provide a day at least. With balls. Well, one ball. But it’s a bouncy beach ball. What’s not to like?

The Beached Bunny Hunt has started and runs all month. All hunt info, hints and previews are available on the website HERE. There are lots of gorgeous goodies, which I’ll make sure to share with you all again.

Curves has also just started and is a bounty of clothing, hair and heels (to name a few) for the curvier avatar. If you’re a Freya or Hourglass girl, this monthly event should not be missed.

Finally, The Trunk Show is still in full swing until the middle of this month. Make sure you check it out because you never quite know what gorgeous, girly gems you’ll discover.

Enjoy your Friday, gorgeous people. Be happy ❤

Boy, Bye.

Ohhh I have so many little treats to tell you about today, but you need to be super speedy quick if you want to grab them all. Ready? Come with me 😀

SL16B is in full swing and there are 4 amazing sims packed with SL’s biggest names with a bunch of special offers and free gifts. Needless to say, the sims are busy but you have until the 8th July to check out the sales and pick up the amazing free gifts on offer. Huge thanks to the Designers for their generosity. I want to draw your attention to my sneakers – they’re on offer at the event, but ALSO L & B Swear group join is reduced to 25L at the event too. If you then go back to the mainstore, there are a bunch of group gifts available, including exclusive add on huds for items. I’m wearing the suede add on hud for the sneakers and love em ❤

ChicChica has been generous once again and has this fab holdable lemonade available as a free gift until the 30th June. It’s such a cute little accessory and perfect for summer evenings. It does beg the question “why are you in jeans and a sweater in Summer, Wynn?” ….which leads me on to my jeans, funnily enough! Also on offer until the end of the month, L & B Swear has these fab jeans and belt on limited discount at Flourish Sales Studio. I love the side ribbon detail and each pack comes with a ribbon colour change hud. So depending on your mood, you can switch it up…or down…or sideways.

Finally, my cute kitty pose stems from a Facebook appeal and I’m so happy to see that Image Essentials have taken up the challenge and NAILED it. Last week, a blogger on facebook put the question out to the internet “would someone design a crazy cat lady pose set” and literally a few days later, this set was born. It is a gacha mainstore release and it’s fab to see more mainstore releases. Another brilliant thing is if you join the Image Essentials group (free), all group members get one free go on the gacha machine….and this includes EVERY machine in the gacha room. What a brilliant gift for group members?! Love the idea and gives you a chance to have a play about with lots of new poses you may not have previously considered.

Ok, that’s me done for this miserable looking Wednesday. I’m off back to RL and I hope today will be a less stressful one than the previous two. Make sure you pick up your items before they go at the end of the month. Enjoy your day, lovely people, and be kind to each other ❤

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend!

The May round of Curves is fast approaching it’s end and I have just enough time to share this pose with you. It’s so much fun! Who wouldn’t want their avatar perched atop a giant diamond, cavorting with wild abandon. Knowing my luck though, it’d be a giant cubic zircona or as they like to call it on the home shopping networks “diamante”. Mostly diamond, buuuuuuuut not quite! Anyway, ignore me, gabbing on like I have all the time in the world. To Curves!

My SL Freebie & Gift Challenge.

This week my friend Meri did a 100L challenge on her blog (HERE) and it’s been an inspiration! I also spotted my friend IsaBelle do a similar post HERE, so that was it….I had a little think about what could I do along a similar vein (yep I jumped on the bandwagon!)

Firstly, there are an incredible number of generous Designers – thank you. There is also a glut of gifts (and very cheap deals) on Marketplace. Group gifts abound and there are still many lucky chairs and Midnight Mania boards in use. Don’t forget Hunts too, which are a great way of discovering new stores – see my Caspervend Hunt post HERE.

One thing I learned about this challenge is the number of stores that have their join fee set to 0L and have brilliant gifts available. Even where one store has a “higher” join fee (and how do you define ‘higher’), I counter that by pointing out they have 8 group gifts available at the moment; the combined value taking you well over the join fee. As with all things in SL, it always depends how much you want to spend on your avatar. I just hope between Meri, Isa and myself, we’ve illustrated that you can look awesome in SL without spending a fortune.

Happy shopping ❤

The Caspervend Hunt

The Caspervend Hunt started recently and I spent some time this weekend dipping into it. As there are over 200 (!!) stops, I couldn’t complete the entire hunt in one sitting or show you all the gifts available, but here are a selection of the prizes you can locate. It’s a free (0L) hunt, ends on the 25th April and there are a plethora of stores and locations participating. You will need the hunt hud, which can be delivered HERE. Make sure you’re wearing it in order to receive your prizes and good luck! May the odds forever be in your favour ❤

Easter Eggs

I don’t know where time is flying this year. It’s scary that in a few weeks (if that) we’ll be opening shiny packages and scoffing plenty of chocolate. One of my work colleagues has given up chocolate for Lent and she is already planning how she’ll eat her chocolate eggs stash – halving an egg to create a chocolate cereal bowl, turning one into a hot chocolate mug and ending with filling a small one with baileys and cream! It all sounds wonderful and sickly in equal measure! I’m going to leave you with those thoughts on this Sunday morning as I have a chocolate free day. I hope your Sunday is peaceful and relaxing ❤
