Maya

Congratulations people, give yourselves a pat on the back. You survived the week. Yes…you gorgeous people! YOU! YOU DID IT!! ……..

This is exactly what I was thinking as I finished my working week ….ohhhh…… 7 hours ago now. This first week back has been brutal. Some would say it’s self inflicted. I prefer to think of it like ripping off a plaster: a short amount of intense pain for the long term benefit (in this case, I had two weeks off at Christmas).

Do I have any regrets? Right now…yes! lol! Will I probably do this again? Probably LOL! Who knows what this year will bring in RL, but so far in SL, there’s been a few surprises. It’s definitely going to be an interesting one!

Sunday coffee

For me that is just what a Sunday is supposed to be. Getting up when you feel rested, grabbing a drink and lazily wandering wherever you want to go. It might be catching up with friends; it could be shopping. It might be a trip to the movies or Netflix on the couch. Whatever your Sunday will turn into, I hope it’s relaxing and filled with your favourite little things…before Monday drags us all back to reality.

Going back to bed

Because for me, that’s what Sunday’s are for: bed, coffee and donuts! This sweater sums up my mood perfectly and with my slippers and pj pants, I’m ready for a lazy Sunday. Sadly, mine is nearly over and this means only one thing….the dreaded Monday morning is only round the corner. The Mister will grumble that he hasn’t won the lottery and I’ll tell him he needs to actually buy a ticket…and so we go. On that note, I’ll stop my ramblings and leave you to the rest of your weekend in peace. Enjoy x

Sunday mornings

Sunday mornings are the perfect time for chilling on the sofa, cuddling into a blanket and just watching telly shows. Relaxation, rest and nothing else. My own little piece of heaven where there is no rushing about, no demands and plenty of coffee on tap. Perfection ❤

Wanderer

I often like to travel and explore. Sometimes with another person but more often by myself. I’ll happily wander to music gigs, cinema screenings or on day trips by myself, happy in my own company. Sometimes I’ll take a book or some knitting but often I’ll just arrive and soak up the atmosphere. I realised a few years back that if I spent my life waiting for other people to be ready to do the things I wanted to do, I’d spend my life waiting…just waiting. So now, I do things my way, in my own time and I’m much happier for it.

Date night

Ahh date night, that one evening in the week/month where women pluck themselves to within an inch of their pain threshold, wear enough lycra to suck all the unsuckables into place and then go out and eat something daintily, when all we really want to do is scoff everything on the menu. And wear our pjs. And curl up on the sofa. And maybe fall asleep with our mouths hanging open. Yeeeeah, date night…. 😉

I’ve had fun this weekend playing with the “Date Night” set from RIOT at this month’s Arcade. When I first began blogging (one year ago..where has the time gone?) I was adamant that I’d only be a fashion blogger. Yet I’ve found over time, that I enjoy blogging decor/furniture, it just takes me a little longer, and therefore feels more rewarding when it comes together. I enjoy how it can help to build a scene and create a mood. I’ve talked previously about stepping outside my comfort zone and daring to be sexy. I’d also say that working with furniture/decor items also takes me outside my comfort zone and this has been something that’s pleasantly surprised me.

Definitely going to need one this weekend, and thankfully this little sofa set comes with two large glasses of white….just for me! The bottle’s mine too, before you ask and this lady isn’t in a mood to share 😉
