Not all Weddings are a Celebration

I think we’ve all been there. Watching someone we know (and love?) walk into a situation we just know they’re going to regret. We’ve said our piece, we’ve bitten our tongue, we’ve shed tears. All that’s left is for the situation to play out and just be there afterwards. Not all unions are a celebration. Especially when we know heartbreak is around the corner.

Caffeine and Chaos

We’ve all had those moments, haven’t we? When we’re full with a full mental tank of caffeine and up for some mischief. It’s the calm before the storm. The moment before the chaos commences. What fun! *cracks my knuckles* Let’s see what the day brings 😉

When the Mister talks fashion

It isn’t often the Mister talks fashion…willingly…with me. Usually, if I get him within spitting distance of a shop or event inworld, I get a multitude of unimpressed “pfffts” in my ear along with a few choice words. So, when I showed him this jumpsuit and chatted about matching heels (Sheba…you can’t go wrong with these little gems!) he was surprisingly chatty on the subject.

ChicModa: it’s official. The Mister likes the ruffles along the leg. The Mister likes the colour choice hud (available as a fatpack). You get a gold star. Cherish it well because these things are rarer than rocking horse poop (a choice phrase).

I also tried Powder Pack for the first time this month as it is the anniversary edition. I’m impressed with the range of options in each pack: a multitude of makeup, lashes, brows, eyes and skins. All fatpacks. We all know how much a fatpack of skins alone can cost; that’s a small fortune in itself, so to get another 11 items in the pack is a good deal to me. The other thing I like about Powder Pack is that it’s available on Marketplace and you buy for your specific mesh head type. No more ditching half the stock because it doesn’t fit, which I know has been a bugbear with clothing boxes in the past. All in all, hats off to you Powder Pack. I may well buy again in the future 🙂

Chainti

Ok, I won’t lie. When I first started typing the title I very nearly typed CHIANTI. I clearly have something on the brain and it’s red and very full bodied. No, not Santa you dirty birdies! A very large glass of wine beckons me and I will probably (very likely) succumb to it’s siren’s call. As I have a precious evening alone at home tonight I shall use it well…a Tom Hardy movie, courtesy of my BFF and a little chocolate 😀

Butterfly

There seemed to be a common theme with a lot of the items in my outfit today: butterflies! From my toes to the top of my head, they are on my skin. I quite like that; fragile creatures that venture out into the world to bring beauty for the fleeting moment they’re alive. Isn’t that what we all do?

Two items I must draw your attention to because they’re time sensitive are my gorgeous bikini and heels. The heels are available TODAY ONLY as a 50L Friday offer at Pure Poison. The come with a metal tone hud and fit the main three body types. My bikini is Narcisse’s offering for the Monthly Midnight Madness taking place this weekend only! If you don’t know anything about the MMM event, check out the weblink HERE. The bikini is free but the colour add on hud is an extra cost. Good luck – I’ll see you out on the grid grabbing some deals tomorrow.

Aura

I’m a firm believer that what you give out, you receive back. I believe that good people attract good people to them. I believe in karma; good words, good thoughts and good deeds. Don’t misunderstand, I’m still very much a work in progress for all the above, but I keep trying and I hope you do too ❤


The Trunk Show Final

On a separate note, The Trunk Show has arrived inworld for a new round this month. You have until the 19th September to check out the gorgeous releases presented and I’m sure your purse will be lighted for doing so. One thing I love about the event is the sheer range of products available, even under a general theme of ‘weddings’. You never quite know what you’ll find!

Zom-bunny

I wonder what a zom-bunny would actually look like…whether you’d see these cute little mauraders actually nomming on brains or whether they’d just have a major fetish for carrots. Which, when you think about it is really healthy and perhaps we should adopt the zom-bunny lifestyle. Who knows? Definitely not me!

Last weekend, Europe caught up with the rest of SL and our clocks went forward by an hour. This wasn’t a problem Sunday morning when I could luxuriate in bed but…Monday morning….so painful. I know after a few days I’ll be used to it, but right now. No. Just No.

We’re also approaching that time of year when Easter themed hunts abound in SL, a veritable feast of delights that leaves me hopping with excitement (see what I did there…I definitely need that extra hour’s sleep!) I love keeping up with hunts inworld and will often be seen dragging my BFF around the grid looking for those lil hard to find critters. So if you ever see me, nose to the ground, with my cross hairs swinging about in a fury, you’ll now know what I’m up to 😉
