3 is our magic number

Good morning my lovelies. Or is it afternoon? Or evening? Who knows. The only thing constant is change and that time moves onward. If you have time today why not check out my gorgeous new outfit at FaMESHed or perhaps discover something new for your home? Then once you’re done, curl up on the sofa with a drink and enjoy ……. calm. Bliss xxx

Still in a festive mood people? Good. I hope so. If you haven’t decorated your home yet, there is still time! We’re spoiled with so much seasonal themed clothing, decor and furniture I’m sure there will be something you like available. But make sure once  you’re done, that you spend some time writing a letter to the Big Guy telling him what a good girl you’ve been or…like me…you’ll end up with some coal in your stocking instead!

Happy Holidays

And here we are….it’s December people! Happy Holidays!! Although, if you’re anything like me, my holiday time starts in a couple of weeks and we’re on countdown! My mental calendar is ticking down and I am ready to…..sleeeeeeeep. lol. Of course, we know that won’t really happen, but hey, a girl can hope.

Anyways while we wander inworld, there are two killer hunts on this month that are a MUST. Check out The Grumpy Santa Hunt and of course, the timeless Peace on Earth Hunt. Good luck with the hints, I’m rubbish at them 😉

And now I take a moment to put my feet up and have a hot cuppa with a treat. Don’t worry, you’ll see me about soon enough. There’s no rest for the wicked ❤

Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤

The Garden

Sadly, as I sit and write this, my garden is nowhere near as appealing or warm as this scene. In my mind it’s still summer and I could easily curl up on this daybed and read a book, a cup of tea nearby. I know it’s Summer in the Southern Hemisphere but up North, I want it back! I guess that’s the thing with the seasons though; the wait is worth it ❤

Space Age Daydream

Sometimes you see an item and you just think “gaaaah, I have to share this with the world!” This amazing walker robot is one such item. It is bento rigged to attach to your body, which is brilliant because no vehicle rezzer is needed. I ended up dragging my bff to the store this weekend to buy one and race her around the land (the store has a road, which is really fun!) Needless to say, I ended up at the bottom of a fishing lake while she laughed at me but that’s a story for another day!

However, this one product then inspired the above scene – a perfect Space Age Daydream (and yes, I keep having Bowie on repeat in my head every time I type that statement). I wonder what a Space Age Daydream would be. Would it be something wondrous or horrific? Would the dreamer want to be back home, with Terra Firma beneath her feet or would she happily roam the stars? What companions would she take with her? Is she running from her past or is she journeying towards the future? In truth, I don’t know, but that’s the fun of Second Life – we take the time to explore and discover.
