Sargasso Sea

I have always been a fan of the classics, especially books written by the Bronte sisters. I can feel the Mister rolling his eyes at me already as I say this to you. Imagine my surprise when I heard of a book “Wild Sargasso Sea”, written in the 1960s, telling the story of the first Mrs Rochester. The Mad Woman in the Attic. Ahh Mr Rochester, you are not a hero, you are an emotional abuser and a possessive, cruel man. We get hints of this in Jane Eyre, but truly witness it in this novel. Much of the story is based in the Caribbean, just after the abolition of slavery. The reader is launched into a world with an abundance of colour, scent, sensation and it is intoxicating. Definitely a book to add to your “must read” list, and I’d love to know your thoughts afterwards. Enjoy x

Savanna

Usually at the start of the month, there will be any number of events starting and new releases available. We actually have two events coming to an end soon, and if you’re a home and garden decorator inworld, it’s worth checking them out. The Good Vibes Hunt 2 and The Wash – Cart Sale both end mid month and the items I’m showing you range from 25-50L price. Gorgeous items at a fraction of a mainstore release price. Yes, as with any hunt, you’ll need to find the items but don’t they look gorgeous? I know I want to curl up on that couch, read a book and drink some tea. Bliss x

Sweet Blossom

I’ve been hitting the events this weekend and as you can see, have put together a whole new me! Best of all, practically everything I have on is free or a special offer. You have plenty of time to make it to SLB17 and create your own unique look from all the fantastic offers and gifts available. I also had to share this amazing lipstick with you from Dotty’s Secret. I don’t know how they make it look so glossy but the entire set is a dream to wear. After all, life should be in full colour. Love is love and we should embrace it x
