Rewind

The Rewind event has just started and I always find it good fun to pop over and see what people are now calling “Retro”. This round is the early 2000’s and all I keep thinking is “heck, I was around my physical peak then!” Young, perky….nothing had moved southwards and I didn’t appreciate it at the time. In fact, I remember owning a PC like this one for a good few years. It was a beast of a machine (woolly mammoth) but it got me through university in one piece ūüėČ

The computer set is from Madpea and is actually a gacha game. Collect the pieces to discover the outcome of a story and a hidden achievement. That’s all I know myself, so I’ll be settling down in my comfies (love bold colours, so pink was a natural choice) and finding out what happens. It’s a bit like a binge watch session of your fave tv programme. Have to keep going until it’s all done!

One more slice…

…of pizza ūüėÄ

I started this month with a personal resolution to get fitter and try to lose some weight. Ha! That ol’ adage, you think. Yep. Every year, same resolution and one week in, same wobbles. And, no I’m not referring to the ones on my body. Maybe the resolution should be more to do with self forgiveness. Brushing the mental dirt off myself and getting back on the wagon. Accepting there will be wobbles, but being determined to see things through. Until then, I have pizza…and ice cream…and the variety of drinks around me. Beer anyone?

This latest coffee and end table set from Salacity has a cute coaster that rezzes a range of drinks to enjoy. There are non alcoholic drinks too, so you don’t have to be a lush like me ūüėČ I also couldn’t resist the sweat pant set from Pink Cream Pie. Who knows, it might motivate me to get my ass to the gym on Monday.

Naughty Santa!

So, Mrs Claus had promised to be a good girl but sometimes…well. The only way to be really good was to be really bad. It’s all about your sense of perspective *wink*

Cast Your Eyes Forward

Look forward, to the horizon. That’s where your future lies. Embrace it. Don’t let your fears be the bars on a self imposed cage that holds you back.

Today I’m stepping out of my comfort zone a little and I have a person and a group to thank for this. I recently participated in the Blogger Vlogger Network (BVN) group’s Secret Santa and I was drawn Jarla Capalini. “So, how do I blog about a blogger as a gift?” you ask. Well, it’s a very good question and one I’ve thought about this week carefully. You start by profile perving, flickr perving and blog perving. Generally, you perv and I learned a few things:

  1. Jarla takes amazing photographs. Her use of lighting and shadows just makes me think “Wow!” every time I see them.
  2. Jarla has a couple of quotes in her profile that really resonate with me. The window bars in this picture are inspired by one of them.
  3. Jarla loves motorbikes!! This makes my heart sing because I have a trike in real life and I admit, I drooled at her rl profile picture (sorry Jarla, still profile perving).

So, what does a little blogger like me do with this information? Well, we take risks. We play with lighting and projectors. We edit windlights, play with shadows and then a moment of brilliance emerges. Obviously, this moment of brilliant includes a motorbike and an excuse to wear leather. So Jarla, this is my gift to you and it comes with thanks, for inspiring me to develop my skills further.

Two fingers are better than one?

This week I had the honour of working with Ms Zexy Queen herself on this picture. I’d posted on facebook this week regarding some of the things I’ve learned being a blogger over the last 8 months and one of them was about collaborating with other bloggers. I’ve done it once in the past and always love the opportunity to work with people and learn from them. What have I learned? I take too long getting ready! The Boss would agree, I’m sure lol.

If you want the credits for Zexy’s look, check out her blog HERE. In fact, why don’t you follow it? Lots of gorgeousness to drool over! Needless to say I had a lot of fun putting this picture together and I look forward to future collabs with Ms Queen!

Yuletide

 

There’s something about this little robin that I can’t help but be drawn to. That he’s sitting there, guiding me, a little light in his beak showing me the way. It comforts me.

If you head over to the Entice sim, there’s a photography contest on at the moment with lots of lovely little opportunities for photographs dotted about the sim. A little treat for budding photographers like me. More info about the contest is at the sim itself. Good luck!

Tiny Dancer

Ever since I saw this Reign gacha at The Arcade this month, I knew I had to have it. It takes me back years to 5 year old me, learning ballet and realising I’m not naturally co-ordinated! I bump into things. I have a tendency to catch corners and stumble a little. Although I wasn’t a natural dancer, I learned that perseverance does pay off and my skills grew. I was never going to be a Prima Donna, but I could hold my own and that was good enough for me.
