Naughty Nautical!

I’m definitely in a nautical mood today….or is it a naughty one? This month I feel like straying away from bikinis and having fun with this Parisienne, Monaco chic. Although, having now said that I’ll probably be wearing bikinis for the rest of the month! If you have spare time, check out the Ahoy Hunt! Organised by Ghee, there are 40 prizes hidden by 7 stores on the Ghee sim, which you can find for 10L apiece. All good fun and lots of gorgeous items to pick up. All landmarks are given below. Make sure you grab an ice cream before it melts away too. On that note, it’s time for me to disappear. I’ll see you all soon, I’m sure x

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 ❤

Playing with Shadows

I could have also titled this blog post “playing in the shadows” and the message would have worked too. One thing I love about photography in SL is how people can take the same finite resource and interpret things in so many different ways. It’s partly knowledge and skill but it’s mostly how we see things, our ‘vision’ that makes each photo unique. Do we look for the light, choosing colour, fun and optimism? Or do we look to play in the shadows, revealing what we choose in a monochromatic manner? I’m not attempting to reveal the profound here, just open up food for thought. Although, ironically I have literally done that today and shown you how food obsessed I can be!

This hair, this outfit, heck these boots all scream one thing to me….it’s time to party! I love a bit of disco music and this outfit is getting saved for my next inworld party. Love it. I also adore the colour that the boots and my earrings bring to the party. Did someone mention drinks and nibbles? Well, I’m prepared to offer a cocktail but no one is getting a bite of cake from me. Sorry, not sorry. You’ll have to get your own 😉

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend!

The May round of Curves is fast approaching it’s end and I have just enough time to share this pose with you. It’s so much fun! Who wouldn’t want their avatar perched atop a giant diamond, cavorting with wild abandon. Knowing my luck though, it’d be a giant cubic zircona or as they like to call it on the home shopping networks “diamante”. Mostly diamond, buuuuuuuut not quite! Anyway, ignore me, gabbing on like I have all the time in the world. To Curves!

Top up?

Thank goodness it’s Friday. As I write this it’s beautifully sunshiney outside (is that a word, nm I just made it up), and I’ll be heading out for the day. I’ve been lucky to have this week off work, although it’s been as hectic as my regular working week! Today, I will be spoiled by brunch with a dear friend and a chance for a good catch up. Whatever the day brings you, I hope it involves sunshine and happiness. Enjoy your bank holiday ❤
