In the Farmhouse

While Autumn is closing in here in the UK, this weekend has glorious sunshine and I intend to make best use of it. Some lazy relaxing in the garden is a must before the week begins again. I like to think that this scene, while containing some Autumn/Fall inspired items, retains a warmth and an Indian Summer feel. Perfect to just smile and relax with. As always, our Home and Garden Designers spoil us with beautifully textured creations – I could literally reach through and bite into that apple! On that note, it’s time for a snack.

In the Summer Sun.

Today it’s been hot. HOT. Hot in areas of my body that no lady should feel the heat from. Ok, I know that sounds strange but sweaty backs of knees…..I didn’t even know that was a thing, but I do now!! That’s why this milkshake is so appealing to me today. I literally want to lie back and chug down ice cream. Never mind the calories: cool my throat down now!

Anyway, enough of my ramblings. This lady needs to find someplace to lie down and collect herself. In the meantime, I hope you all have a fab Tuesday x

Beach Day!

Yes, sad to say I’m up early on a Sunday morning. Boo to an overactive mind, which woke me with a list of chores to be done and a song on repeat. Typical! On a plus, it’s gloriously sunny outside and that puts me in the mood for a beach day! Not in RL, because my nearest seaside is a *little* tacky BUT inworld, I have this gorgeous unspoilt beach to enjoy. My little friend has snuck along to sun herself, although we best keep her away from the water. My other companion keeps bringing me drinks and who am I to refuse? Don’t mind me while I lie back and enjoy the warmth seeping into my bones. After all, isn’t that what Sundays are for?

Groove Baby!

Who doesn’t love a decent, thumping tune to party to? Whether it’s celebration, reminiscing, grieving or something as mundane as the commute to work, music is a beat we conduct our lives to. Sometimes the beat moves quickly, sometimes it’s sedate. With Eurovision taking place this weekend, it also has its fair dose of cheese. Whichever beat you’re conducting your life to at the moment, I hope it’s a happy one ❤

She works hard for the money….

Ok, so there’s a story behind this picture. I was *trying* to go for edgy, urban “it’s all about the money honey” Wynn and ended up with Hooker Wynn on a Friday night. What can I say? Sometimes I just go where the creative beast takes me. Thankfully in this case, it’s with a few extra dollars in my pocket and a song in my head 😀

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 ❤
