Lesina

Well my lovelies, good morning! It’s Sunday! Admittedly, this is *not* the attire I would usually adorn on a Sunday morning (think comfies and cozies), but sometimes killer heels deserve killer lingerie. And a killer pose. Plus that killer lipstick. Next thing you know, the Mister is getting a bundle of rude messages and well…..you don’t need to know the rest x

Groove Baby!

Who doesn’t love a decent, thumping tune to party to? Whether it’s celebration, reminiscing, grieving or something as mundane as the commute to work, music is a beat we conduct our lives to. Sometimes the beat moves quickly, sometimes it’s sedate. With Eurovision taking place this weekend, it also has its fair dose of cheese. Whichever beat you’re conducting your life to at the moment, I hope it’s a happy one ❤

My SL Freebie & Gift Challenge.

This week my friend Meri did a 100L challenge on her blog (HERE) and it’s been an inspiration! I also spotted my friend IsaBelle do a similar post HERE, so that was it….I had a little think about what could I do along a similar vein (yep I jumped on the bandwagon!)

Firstly, there are an incredible number of generous Designers – thank you. There is also a glut of gifts (and very cheap deals) on Marketplace. Group gifts abound and there are still many lucky chairs and Midnight Mania boards in use. Don’t forget Hunts too, which are a great way of discovering new stores – see my Caspervend Hunt post HERE.

One thing I learned about this challenge is the number of stores that have their join fee set to 0L and have brilliant gifts available. Even where one store has a “higher” join fee (and how do you define ‘higher’), I counter that by pointing out they have 8 group gifts available at the moment; the combined value taking you well over the join fee. As with all things in SL, it always depends how much you want to spend on your avatar. I just hope between Meri, Isa and myself, we’ve illustrated that you can look awesome in SL without spending a fortune.

Happy shopping ❤

Shine Bright <3

We all have a chance to shine. We choose how brightly (or dimly) we shine in life and in turn, our choices and actions cause others to shine too. I intend to shine brightly next year and I hope you do too x

Love Don’t Pay the Bills

As shoppers we are spoiled in SL. There are a plethora of events, gacha, new releases and sales we can choose from on a weekly basis. In addition, store owners are amazing for the sheer range and volume of gifts they create for us as well. Whether it’s a group gift, a lucky board item, a fishing prize or marketplace dollarbie, we are spoiled for choice. I wanted to show you some of the items I picked up just this week and this is only a selection of what I found! Have fun hunting for your own little bargains and on a personal note, thanks to the Designers for continuing to provide these gifts to us.

Perfect Timing?

Wynn was ready. The perfect outfit. The perfect beach body. The perfect pout and pose 😉 The only problem with perfection was that by the time Wynn was ready, the sun had set and everyone had gone home! Not so perfect after all!

Princesses and Kittens

I remember having a conversation with my friend recently about Princesses and Kittens. We established she is very much a Kitten and I’m very much a Princess *adjusts my tiara in place*. So what’s a Kitten, you ask? Well, simply put Kittens are sweet, yet clawed creatures. More importantly *shoves her Kitten friend to one side* what’s a Princess? Well, we Princesses like to know we’re number 1, we love to be spoilt rotten, loved, cuddled and put on a pedestal. All of this is perfect for a little Princess like me *beams and plays with my hair*.

This little outfit appealed to me as the top says it all! It makes me chuckle a little because my Kitten is also a teacher. I wonder if she can sneak ‘princess’ into a spelling test for me some day? I’ll let you know if she ever does!
