Ring my bell?

I feel like this pose demands a doorbell. Well, *something* that I can push my finger onto and…ring. A doorbell seems the most “innocent” object to suggest and we all know I’m an innocent lady. As pure as my handbag. I’m a huge lover of colour and the summery tones of my dress and heels just make my heart sing. There is also a tie dye version of this dress but pretty flamingos – definitely. The heels are also worth checking out because the ribbons can be both ankle wraps and calf wrapped. Ahhh Mr Gos, you know how to tempt us; you naughty man. On that note, I’m going to take my freshly curled hair and go find me a doorbell to *ahem* push. Toodles 😉

A field of tulips

What a lovely way to spend a Spring day! Relaxing somewhere warm and quiet with a good book or three. Enjoying the fragrance from the plants around you, listening to birds and insects while all around there’s…..peace. No cars, no people, no sound pollution of any sort. If anyone finds this paradise (in South East England), please let me know! I might join you there for a spot of tea.

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 ❤

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 ❤

Pout!

Painting my nails is my weekly luxury (ok, one of them… >.>) I enjoy picking the colour (the brighter the better) and going through the application procedure. I love seeing the end result and thinking that no matter what happens, I have my killer nails on 😉 Add the perfect shade of lipstick and we’re ready to go. Hair, makeup, jewellery. A perfect combination. Now…pout!

Bats for Lashes

Earlier this week I mourned the loss of Summer and that Autumn was well and truly on it’s way. One thing I enjoy this time of year though, is experimenting with the gothic, dark and Halloween theme outfits and accessories that we’re spoiled with in SL. Where else could you literally wear bats for lashes? It also gives me a chance to experiment with shadows, which is one feature of SL photography I really enjoy. My friend Luca gave me the link to Satomi’s (Foxcity) windlights recently and I’ve been having a lot of fun with them. As you can see here, I’ve gone from angelic to dark shadows with merely two clicks. For all those who know me, try not to chuckle on the angelic reference. Everyone knows I’m an angel.
