Time for Walkies

So, my little buddy and I have been hitting some of the events inworld during this Festive time. It’s glorious – I don’t have to go into work for another week so I’m taking advantage of this precious time! The Shop & Hop event is on until January and all participating Designers have been very generous with their gifts and special offers. Add to that, my little buddy (a group gift courtesy of HILTED) and I’m ready to strut my stuff…just not out of an airlock!

Summertime Madness.

She loved him. Once. When they were younger, fresher, full of life. Now, every night all she hears is the rasp at the back of his throat. The expulsion of air through his flared nostrils. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Minutes ticking by in the dead of the night, while the summer heat sizzles in the bedroom. At some point, between the sheets, sticky from his sweat and the incessant snoring by her side, murder seemed….reasonable. A viable option. A means of escape from the never ending…..noise. That rasp at the back of his throat. The expulsion of air through his flared nostrils. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Summertime madness takes many forms. But none as deadly as the voice of reason concluding that this was the only course of action.

My lovely friends Meri and Isabelle like to set blogger challenges. Perhaps you’d like to join us one month? If so, just poke one of us and we’ll tell you how it’s done. Meri’s interpretation of Summertime Madness can be read HERE and so can Isa’s HERE. Take a moment to read their stories, perhaps bookmark their blogs. You won’t be disappointed. Their words of wisdom and hilarity cheer me up no end ❤

Boy, Bye.

Ohhh I have so many little treats to tell you about today, but you need to be super speedy quick if you want to grab them all. Ready? Come with me 😀

SL16B is in full swing and there are 4 amazing sims packed with SL’s biggest names with a bunch of special offers and free gifts. Needless to say, the sims are busy but you have until the 8th July to check out the sales and pick up the amazing free gifts on offer. Huge thanks to the Designers for their generosity. I want to draw your attention to my sneakers – they’re on offer at the event, but ALSO L & B Swear group join is reduced to 25L at the event too. If you then go back to the mainstore, there are a bunch of group gifts available, including exclusive add on huds for items. I’m wearing the suede add on hud for the sneakers and love em ❤

ChicChica has been generous once again and has this fab holdable lemonade available as a free gift until the 30th June. It’s such a cute little accessory and perfect for summer evenings. It does beg the question “why are you in jeans and a sweater in Summer, Wynn?” ….which leads me on to my jeans, funnily enough! Also on offer until the end of the month, L & B Swear has these fab jeans and belt on limited discount at Flourish Sales Studio. I love the side ribbon detail and each pack comes with a ribbon colour change hud. So depending on your mood, you can switch it up…or down…or sideways.

Finally, my cute kitty pose stems from a Facebook appeal and I’m so happy to see that Image Essentials have taken up the challenge and NAILED it. Last week, a blogger on facebook put the question out to the internet “would someone design a crazy cat lady pose set” and literally a few days later, this set was born. It is a gacha mainstore release and it’s fab to see more mainstore releases. Another brilliant thing is if you join the Image Essentials group (free), all group members get one free go on the gacha machine….and this includes EVERY machine in the gacha room. What a brilliant gift for group members?! Love the idea and gives you a chance to have a play about with lots of new poses you may not have previously considered.

Ok, that’s me done for this miserable looking Wednesday. I’m off back to RL and I hope today will be a less stressful one than the previous two. Make sure you pick up your items before they go at the end of the month. Enjoy your day, lovely people, and be kind to each other ❤

A woman scorned

Well, a woman scored is a terrible thing indeed. But I think we knew that already 😉

There are so many amazing hunts and free Halloween gifts inworld at the moment, I wanted to share a few of them with you in this post. With Halloween literally around the corner, we are spoilt with the amount of free gifts on offer. So, here is my whistlestop tour!

Firstly, the Spookzilla Hunt is on until the end of the month! All info can be found HERE on their Facebook page. All hunt prizes are between 0-30L and there are over 600 prizes available. Each little ghosty is colour coded and you can get previews of the store prizes, so my advice is take a look and identify what you really like….then start hunting!

Next, the Once Upon a Nightmare Hunt is in full swing until the end of the month too. This is a free hunt and all hints/slurls are HERE  on their website. This is hosted by BEPSL….so the likes of The Epiphany etc. Trust me when I say the quality of the hunt prizes are insane. Don’t miss out on this bad boy!

The Hocus Pocus Hunt is on for a little longer (until 8th November) and has a slightly different twist to the above hunts. Pick up a Preview/TP Hud from Marketplace HERE and use this to teleport to each store participating. You then have ONE CHANCE a day to say “hocus pocus” in front of the purple cauldron for a chance to win the prize on offer. So you get one chance daily until the 8th November to win the prize……OR….you can buy the prize for 50L. I always like to play until closer to the deadline, then I panic buy lol. But that’s just me 🙂

Finally, we have a bunch of new group gifts available including my gorgeous dress from Apple May Designs. It’s available in the VIP group only lucky board and you get both a red and black version to wear. Good luck!

Sleeved

I’m a huge Netflix fan. I’ve recently become hooked on Altered Carbon and the concept of our souls/consciousness versus our outer body “sleeves”. There are moments of brilliance in the series and moments to make you step back and think…one scene where the male protagonist realises that his ally is actually his enemy is one that makes me shudder. How easy to fool other people without realising who you truly are. How easy to live ‘forever’ if you desired. How the concepts of money, wealth, status and hierarchy are magnified over and over if you could live forever.
