Focus on Me

No, you don’t have to. I’m just kidding 😉

How are you all today? I hope the weekend is treating you kindly. I’ve spent my Saturday navigating local shops, picking up items for the household…and a few treats for myself too. The Mister was duly horrified when I mentioned handbag shopping, which is why I won’t tell him how much I spent. It was nice to just … do normal things again though. It makes me appreciate the little things even more though. Like bumping people inworld without panicking ❤

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 ❤
