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 😀

Our Velocity

The Cyber Punk Fair has just started and runs until the 25th May. As soon as I saw this Trinity Outfit, it called to me, begging to be worn. Who am I to resist? Funnily enough my mind went straight to Space Fights, the Mister’s mind went straight to latex clad Nursey. Mhmmm. And people think I’m the naughty one.

However you choose to spend your week, I hope you do with flare and pizzazz! Enjoy ❤

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 😀

I scream for cake!

I have a sweet tooth; I think you all know that by now. Cake is my first love (sorry Jamie). Sadly, my hips also love cake…far too much! As we hit the warmer weather I’m feeling in a very girly mood and the salmon/pink combo of my earrings, romper and heels just screams “summer” to me. Huge yays for that because it’s time to put those sweaters and thick scarves away! So, don’t mind me while I indulge in a little ice cream today, although with all the cake on offer too I may have to indulge a little more 😀

Contemplation

Sometimes we need some quiet time for contemplation. We can find these moments anywhere and at any time. What do we contemplate? The mundane, small details, life changing moments or simply….memories. A scent. A sensation. A smile. How he makes your heart race still, after all this time. Quiet time for contemplation; always needed.

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 ❤

Blossom

While it’s a horrible blustery day, I am still reassured by the beautiful cherry blossom I can see on the trees in my garden. It reminds me that warmer days are fast approaching.

The Trunk Show has recently opened it’s doors for the April round and so many of the beautiful offerings remind me of Spring and the warmth I’ve already mentioned. This gown by Sn@tch is so delicate; a perfect gown for a Spring wedding – especially as the pearl strap detail is to die for! If you’re looking for anything romantic/wedding/formal themed, this event is one to check out.

Enjoy x
