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 ūüėÄ

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 ‚̧

Absinthe at Midnight

I’ve never been much of an absinthe drinker, mainly because I don’t like aniseed. However, after the level of stress and work this week I’m tempted to give it a try! Thankfully I have a few days booked off work next week and I aim to make the most of them. Sadly, real life commitments have other plans for me. But I shall try to overcome, preferably with a glass of something strong in my hand ūüėČ

Cup of tea?

I must be obsessed with drinks and decor scenes at the moment, because every time I create one, I really fancy a cuppa! Last time it was iced tea, this time I just want a large steaming mug of earl grey. There’s something comforting in the thought of curling up in this armchair, resting my feet on the ottoman and just doing…blissful nothing. This week has been a tough one. Ask me the same question “what would you like to drink?” in 8 hours and I’m sure I’ll give you a different answer ūüėČ But for now, I’d like some hot tea and enough energy to get through my final working day of the week.

Evening drinks

As it quickly approaches the weekend, I suspect I’ll be enjoying a few evening drinks tonight! The iced tea and fruit trays shown here can be found at The Boardwalk Event until the 15th April and the detailing in both is just lovely. Somehow these scene puts me in the mood to pour a glass, select a pear and settle in with a good book. An inner sanctum where I can escape from the world with written tales of fantasy.
