Midsummer Enchantment Time.

For those who love their fashion, home and garden Gothic, Whimsical, Fae or Bohemian, Midsummer Enchantment has just opened and is packed with goodies to enjoy. The event runs until the end of the month, so you have two weeks to pop along and check things out. There is also a 5L hunt on the sim, so keep your eye out for little purple masquerade masks as they contain little treats. I’ve photographed a few of them here for you. One thing I love about the event is the build and the event organisers always provide perfect nooks and crannies – it’s a blogger’s delight. My scene is within the shopping event itself. See if you can spot it yourself.

On to the essential information…….

The website, with shopping guide is HERE

Enjoy – and remember, the event ends on the 30th June – so don’t miss out!

Feeling Cute, Might IM You Later

But shopping is going to take priority today! Monthly Midnight Madness (MMM) takes place this weekend and TODAY is the last day you can pick up some amazing items for some very cheap prices! If you’ve never heard of MMM, here’s the weblink that explains everything. So, on the Saturday, group members have the opportunity to pick up some brilliant items for free, and the Sunday is available as a LAST CHANCE to pick up the same items heavily discounted.

Yes, it’s chaotic. Yes, you need to have your ARC below 25,000 to collect your gift. But, yes it’s a lot of fun and complete madness. It’s one of my monthly highlights and in the 24 hours before, I’ll be checking out the shopping guide and planning which stores to hit first.

On a separate note, I hope you have a lovely chilled Sunday and it’s sunshiney wherever you are in the world ❤

By the Beach

Well, lookee here. It’s a Wynn but not as you know her! Every so often I like to dust off a different mesh head, shape and/or body combo and spice things up a bit. See if the Mister notices (he didn’t). Add some of my greedy friends and we’ve got a party going on by the beach. These little BBQs are great fun because you can rez them closed or with various food options. I especially like the sizzle function and you can see some of the smoke effect here. It’s the little details that matter. I’m also a little in love with this bikini because….well….who doesn’t want an avocado bikini? There are plenty of other fruits in the pack, so feel free to check the store to see if melons abound. All that’s left is to show you a close up of my face and try to protect my dinner from these pesky critters. Wish me luck 😉

It’s just a quick little hello from me today. I hope your week is going well and it’s sunny where you are. It’s been glorious today, which for the UK is always much needed. Sadly, I was stuck in the office looking out of the window wishing I was drinking a cocktail in a pub garden. Alas, not today. But soon – we have a bank holiday coming up, after all \o/

You should see me in a crown

Bite my tongue, bide my time
Wearing a warning sign
Wait ’til the world is mine
Visions I vandalize
Cold in my kingdom size
Fell for these ocean eyes
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by, one

Nina.

I love the weekends. I love them even more when there’s a bank holiday Monday and we get an extra day of freeeeeeedom! I feel like I should shout that in a Mel Gibson ‘Braveheart’ manner, brandishing a sword and flashing my bits to the English army, but hey, I’m feeling sleepy so you get some extra eeeee’s instead. I (and most of the SL shopping population) have been at FaMESHed this weekend and as it’s their 7th year anniversary round, there are a huge range of group gifts and beautiful designs to indulge in.

Or, you could use this time to get stuck into the Good Vibes Hunt, which still has another week to run. Alternatively, you could check out Curves, a new event for the curvier avatar – think Belleza, Slink, Tonic and eBody to name a few. Me, I think I’ll use the rest of my freedom for a little nap. A perfect Sunday afternoon activity 😀

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 ❤
