Hollywood Dreams

I’ve been watching a Netflix series this week called Hollywood. It’s put me in a mood to dress up all vintage, grab myself a chauffeur driven car, drive to a gas station and tell the attendant that I want to go to Dreamland. What can I say? This series is making me nostalgic for a bygone era! Perfect timing too, because Vintage Fair opens today and will tickle your taste buds for all things vintage. Maybe I’ll see you there….in my chauffeur driven car. Who knows? 😉

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.
