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 ❤

In Bloom.

I had the pleasure of visiting Yorkshire this week to take this picture for you. If you haven’t visited before it’s a beautiful creation for photographers and couples alike with little nooks and crannies to enjoy. Usually I like to get lost in the grasses or stand by the water’s edge but in this case, a pose by a comfy seat was just perfect for me. My pose and flowers are part of the Gingerfish set currently at Bloom. It’s a perfect Spring set, which I’d recommend for a peek. My entire outfit reminds me of Spring and warmer days, which we’re finally experiencing in the UK. Bring it on…..and let’s keep our fingers crossed it lasts to the weekend 🙂

Mythical Creatures

As soon as I saw this backdrop, I *knew* I had to photograph it. I’m sure you all know why….and I’m sure it’s made a few of you grin. For the anticipated comment I’ll get from the Mister when he sees this: it was totally WORTH IT! LOL!!
