Morning coffee

Where do you like to drink your morning coffee? Do you sit outdoors, listening to nature as the sun warms your skin? Do you watch the news, political views causing you to shout at the TV? Do you read; fiction or non fiction, the choice is yours. Or is it a rushed affair? Espresso and go. Life is too short to stop…pause…reflect.

My morning coffee today is spent here at Esoteric, on the North beach, enjoying the beautiful sim and it’s decoration. If you take some time to explore the sim, you’ll discover little nooks and crannies. You may discover somewhere to dance with a loved one, a place to flirt with a new lover or even a place to drink morning coffee and watch the ocean.

The Caspervend Hunt

The Caspervend Hunt started recently and I spent some time this weekend dipping into it. As there are over 200 (!!) stops, I couldn’t complete the entire hunt in one sitting or show you all the gifts available, but here are a selection of the prizes you can locate. It’s a free (0L) hunt, ends on the 25th April and there are a plethora of stores and locations participating. You will need the hunt hud, which can be delivered HERE. Make sure you’re wearing it in order to receive your prizes and good luck! May the odds forever be in your favour ❤

Shopping Trip

I love a good shopping trip, both in RL and SL. I have to be in the mood for it, but get me going and …. well, the blood gets pumping!

Inworld I tend to shop at events, although I’m trying to get to mainstores more. In fact, if you have time today check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which has just started and runs to the 3rd February. Everything is at least 50% reduced and there’s also a 5L hunt (check out my hair, hint hint).

In RL my shopping habits have changed and I mostly shop online now. I feel sad for my local high street because I’m that shopper that should be attracted back into their shops but I enjoy the convenience of shopping online too much. The only time I’ll pop into a store is to buy jeans and trousers because, well, ladies….you all know how flipping hard it is to find a decent pair that fits!

On that note, I’m going to take advantage of my peaceful Sunday morning and get a little more shopping done. I hope you all have lovely weekends ❤

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.
