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 ❤

Spread some Joy

As we approach Christmas shut down at my rl workplace, it’s fun to start seeing people wind down and get into a festive mood. We have a Christmas tree decorating contest running this week and while my department hasn’t a hope of winning, I had so much fun decorating our tree yesterday. Cue fake dollar bills and chocolate gold coins with our senior manager’s face on it. Yes, I work in a Finance department! I hope you get a chance to spread some joy and receive some too over the next few weeks. It can get hectic, but I also hope there are moments of calm x

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.

Feeling Devilish

Well good morning, my little chickadees. I hope you’re all feeling fabulous because it’s still the weekend! Yes, I know I know. Sunday. It’s the day when you *should* do the laundry, clean the house and generally prepare for the week ahead. But, what if you…don’t. You *could* do something daring today. Something devilish. Something that takes your breath away (and no I’m not talking about standing outside in the cold without a jacket on). I’m thinking about something risky and naughty. Try something new. Something different. Who knows, it could be the start of a beautiful new chapter in your life. But you won’t know until you try ❤

Ahoy!

Ahoy Sailors! Come aboard! Ok, that’s my limit…. The most nautical I get is dipping my toe in the ocean! Thankfully I found a little quite spot to rez this gorgeous boat and have a little play. I suggest you do the same. Any budding sailor should be dressed appropriately and while stockings and heels may not be usual fare in the real world, this is SL. We can look faaaabulous and avoid any hair frizz or sand in our…..nm! On that note, I best get going before I get a parking ticket, if that’s even a thing with boats? Who knows 😀

A Three Kitty Army

I’m gonna fight ’em all
With my three kitty army, no one can hold us back
They might try to rip it off
Holding catnip right behind my back….

Recognise the song? Ohhh it’s a good one if you do! As we all know, Uber is well and truly under way at the moment and it’s their Anniversary Round. There are oodles of gifts to enjoy and Culprit has this amazing Sphynxie for sale (the arm pet is their free gift). It would be an understatement to say this kitty companion is gestured up the wazoo, because the number of detailed animations is insane. You need to check it out. Put down your phone, stop drinking your coffee and check out this cat. You won’t regret it. Arm pet Sphynxie is also looking at me adoringly. It could be my hair or my new lipstick. Or it could just be because he loves me 😀

FaMESHed opens today and my outfit is a new release from ChicModa. You can purchase the main colours separately (or as a fatpack…I love fatpacks) and each release has a colour change hud for the side stripes and string. I wanted to look feminine while my three kitty army destroys the world, so pale grey and pink it is. The combo also matches my heels, which come with a colour change hud.

Now, all that’s left for me to do is decide our plan of attack…..but as we all know, kitties change their allegiances so often. I may need to stock up on some kitty treats first!

Homecoming.

For those of you who don’t know (and who didn’t?!), I’ve very recently returned from my rl vacation, very excited to see my little princess diva kitty. She’s getting on in years now and every time we go away I don’t like to leave her (although her grandma always does an excellent job looking after her). This was literally our scene when we returned yesterday. Kitty asleep on the sofa, all curled up and cute, looking so peaceful in the moment before I said hello. Then it was all miaows, dribbles and purrs. A perfect homecoming for this kitty lady 🙂

I also wanted to show you the complete building from *paper moon* that I used in my scene. While the tile floor and distressed walls remind me of family visits abroad, you can see the overall building has a gorgeous Mediterranean feel and won’t take too much land impact either. Perfect for the decor enthusiasts out there. Enjoy x
