Celebrate with Wine

Not that I’m biased of course, I’m more a gin girl. Make it a large one with plenty of ice and a wedge of lime 😉

As I write this, 2019 has come to an end and 2020 begins. A lot of people talk about New Year, New Resolutions. Why not talk about Continuations? Continue to try. Continue to be a good person. Continue to see the best in people. Continue to have faith. Maybe it’s more important to continue on the journey you’re already on, rather than start afresh. Who knows? I have many good intentions at the start of each year and then by March they languish *coughs and hides my gym membership card*

Ahhh well my lovelies. Thank YOU for sticking with me through 2019 and let’s hope that 2020 is a positive one for all ❤

Good morning my little buttercups. Yes, it’s Sunday morning! Still another day before we have to go back to being “professional” and “hard workers”. Note how they had their own little speech marks. Did you feel me doing the ‘fingers’ as I typed that? you betcha 😉

At least we can still have a bit of fun today. Perhaps a little mischief. Who knows, even some cake and alcohol *gasp*! However you decide to spend your Sunday, I hope it makes you happy and ready for the week ahead (well as much as anyone can be).

Happy Fall.

I love Fall or as we Brits like to call it, Autumn. Yes, like Spring it’s a transitional season. But I love the colours that seem to emerge on the trees – all the browns, yellows and oranges. Earthy tones. It’s a season to wrap up warm, but there are sunny days and still opportunities to go out for walks. I don’t feel hemmed in by the weather and there certainly isn’t any Christmas music on the radio….yet! So, Happy Fall, dear reader. I hope you get plenty of Pumpkin Kisses and Harvest Wishes. Failing that, there’s always Spring to look forward to – although now I am wishing my life away!

Formals.

Ahh this gown is just perfect for a red carpet formal event! I’m very excited to be wearing this ensemble today. One of my ‘guises’ inworld is as an event host for the Mister. We do regular events at two venues and the first Saturday of the month is always Formal at Esoteric. It’s usually a 1-3pm slt event, but due to the clocks changing (yes, we Brits like to be awkward), today’s event is 2-4pm slt instead. I feel perfectly dressed up and ready for the event today. The Mister will look dapper and I’ll go all mushy. It’s our thing 🙂

If you fancy joining us, the slurl is HERE. Otherwise, enjoy your weekend and if you get up to any mischief, try not to get caught 😉

Matrimonial

If you’re planning a wedding or attending a formal event inworld soon, check out The Trunk Show. If you haven’t visited before, it’s a bimonthly event dedicated to these two types of events in SL. A perfect opportunity to pick up a gown, perhaps some decor or even professional Wedding Services. It may inspire you to try something new. I may even convince the Mister to pop there with me one day….

Wanna come a’knocking?

Ohhh how enticing that offer sounds! Especially as I have cookies to offer. Or, do I because it looks like I’m about to scoff the lot. While I hate the weather changes that are all around us at the moment, one thing I do enjoy during Autumn are the seasonal colour changes we experience. We move into yellows, oranges, rusts and they’re colours I’ve recently fallen in love with. As a traditional pinks/purples girl, Earth tones never featured on my radar but now I look forward to seeing them everywhere. I don’t know if this is a sign of maturity (I hope not!) as I read somewhere that the colours you’re attracted to denote personality traits, but who knows? For the moment, I’m just happy to enjoy the season and munch on these cookies.
