That first sip

That first sip at the weekend; you know the one. It could be a full bodied red wine, a crisp glass of white, something fizzy, or my personal love….an ice cold G&T with a slice of lime. It heralds the weekend for me. It tastes even sweeter knowing you get a lie in the next morning *winks* I visited friends yesterday evening and while I usually enjoy a tipple (or three) with them, I behaved because of a headache that wouldn’t shift. It’s been a long week. However, today I find myself looking forward to my Saturday evening antics and perhaps, just maybe….ok probably, that glass of red wine at the bar in this photograph will end up in my hand tonight 😉

Just a pose

Here we are, lovely people. A new month and we’re already being spoiled with events on the grid. A new round of FaMESHed has just started and combined with the offerings at Shoetopia and Pose Fair, my purse is already feeling much lighter. The Boss has spent the weekend telling me “how many shoes does a woman need?” Plenty, my dear man. The kitty detail on these heels just makes me grin; purrfect for a little cat lady like me.

Pose Fair has also been a real treat and I was lucky enough to take an early peek at the many offerings available. There are also gacha and gifts, so well worth a visit and I had fun trying out poses from stores that are new to me. That’s one thing I really enjoy about events, especially gacha events. It’s a chance to discover new brands, and in the case of gacha, trial things out without spending a small fortune (which I do anyway). I also checked out GachaLand and will be going back again soon. Maybe I’ll see you there 🙂

Reach out and say hello

I was at an event last week and had the pleasure of meeting a store owner for a shoe brand I adore. I won’t name names, but check out the shoe credits and you get the idea 😉 I had a fan girl moment and messaged the owner to let her know how much I admire her work. What followed was a lovely little conversation, which just had me smiling and relaying it to my friends afterwards (complete with fan girl hand movements – think jazz hands). One thing that stuck with me was that the owner said that she didn’t get many messages and I was surprised. If anything, I thought she’d be inundated and I didn’t want to be perceived as a pest. However in retrospect, I’m glad I did it because I’ve learned one thing from the experience: never assume that you know what is going on in the other person’s life and that you’re doing them a favour by keeping to yourself. Reach out and say hello, because that could be the thing that brightens their day, or stops a miscommunication from escalating into something that it was never meant to be.

Plus, then you get to have fan girl moments with me, and we can jazz hands together 😀

Roses are red….

….aaaaand I’m rubbish at writing poetry so that’s where it ends. With a bit of half arsed plagiarism. Although it’s often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery 😉

Enchantment is back for a limited time and this round’s theme is Beauty and the Beast. There are plenty of items available to buy and a store hunt too for you bargain hunters (like me). I did the store hunt on Friday and it’s a quickie so don’t miss out. More links and info can be found HERE. I also have to sneak in a close up of the jewellery I’m wearing because the rose/pearl detail is really beautiful.

Harper

These jeans. I won’t lie. I think I’m in love. Whether regular or distressed, long or standard length, they cover all my requirements. I can dress them with a sweater (as above) or with something slinky and they still look lush. Often when I wear jeans, I like to go casual and this hair/heels combo just works for my mood today. Add a little gloss and perfume, and we’re good to go. Even if it means at the end of the night, I’m dancing on the bar 😉

Camping

OK, confession time. I don’t camp. I don’t do camping. The closest I get to nature is in my back garden drinking a cup of earl grey (decaf) in the summer. I hotel. I looove to hotel. Wynn likes to be pampered both in RL and SL (and yes, I just referred to myself in the third person).

So for your benefit only, I’ll just sit here with my pixel food, on my pixel chair, in my pixel clothes……daydreaming about a 5 star hotel and trying not to get bitten by a thousand little midges.

*Shudders and goes looking for some tea*

You make your own luck

I don’t know if there’s such a thing as luck. I tend to say you make your own luck in life. I’m not going to wait for something to fall into my lap; I work and keep persevering until I achieve my goals. Having said that, there’s nothing wrong with taking a little break during all the work, enjoying the sunshine and relaxing. If I happen to find a four leaf clover while I’m resting, I’ll make sure to carry it with me. Who knows? Luck might exist after all.
