Focus on Me

No, you don’t have to. I’m just kidding 😉

How are you all today? I hope the weekend is treating you kindly. I’ve spent my Saturday navigating local shops, picking up items for the household…and a few treats for myself too. The Mister was duly horrified when I mentioned handbag shopping, which is why I won’t tell him how much I spent. It was nice to just … do normal things again though. It makes me appreciate the little things even more though. Like bumping people inworld without panicking ❤

Morning coffee

Where do you like to drink your morning coffee? Do you sit outdoors, listening to nature as the sun warms your skin? Do you watch the news, political views causing you to shout at the TV? Do you read; fiction or non fiction, the choice is yours. Or is it a rushed affair? Espresso and go. Life is too short to stop…pause…reflect.

My morning coffee today is spent here at Esoteric, on the North beach, enjoying the beautiful sim and it’s decoration. If you take some time to explore the sim, you’ll discover little nooks and crannies. You may discover somewhere to dance with a loved one, a place to flirt with a new lover or even a place to drink morning coffee and watch the ocean.

As a recent converter to a new mesh body and head, I’ve been slowly adjusting to a whole new way of shopping. While I now have the Legacy body (previously Maitreya), it’s been a switch from assuming that clothing will always be available to checking the advertisements for the correct size. I don’t mean that to sound entitled, but Maitreya has always been very popular and, while Legacy’s popularity is fast increasing, it still has a way to go. Thank goodness for the body deformers that come in the pack; they mean I can still wear my Maitreya clothing and shoes. I do love my new curves and, as my BFF calls them, my pornstar boobs lol.

My mesh head conversion was for different reasons. I bought Catwa bento when it was *massive* in the market. I adored my face, identified with the shape and was very reluctant to switch. But…having finally switched to Lelutka Evo (Lake head), I’m really pleased with the decision. The hud is fantastic, options are great and I’m loving the skin/makeup options on the market. Making a switch from Maitreya/Catwa to Legacy/Lelutka has been a bit of a shock to the system, but has been a good one for me x

Juniper

Ohhh one of my favourite berries, and if you’re a gin drinker you know why 😉

Hello my lovelies. Here we are at the start of the month again. I’m not sure where the year is going but the vast majority of it has been spent indoors, drinking extracts of the above mentioned berry. Oh, and accompanying aromatics. Can’t forget those…they make all the difference! Let’s see what mischief we can get up to this month, what successes come our way and what challenges we may face. Until next time, be safe ❤
