Spread some Joy

As we approach Christmas shut down at my rl workplace, it’s fun to start seeing people wind down and get into a festive mood. We have a Christmas tree decorating contest running this week and while my department hasn’t a hope of winning, I had so much fun decorating our tree yesterday. Cue fake dollar bills and chocolate gold coins with our senior manager’s face on it. Yes, I work in a Finance department! I hope you get a chance to spread some joy and receive some too over the next few weeks. It can get hectic, but I also hope there are moments of calm x

SLetfix & Chill

It’s that Sunday morning feeling. You know the sort. You wake, you lie in bed contemplating whether your bladder can last another 40 mins if you burrow back under the covers…..and then you realise, no, no it can’t. It’s time to get up, get dressed and get on with the day. But it’s Sunday! The one day of the week where you allow yourself the pleasure of doing absolutely nothing. Bliss. Heaven. Oh Wondrous Joy. So what do you do with this precious time? SLetfix & Chill, of course 😀

Playing with Shadows

I could have also titled this blog post “playing in the shadows” and the message would have worked too. One thing I love about photography in SL is how people can take the same finite resource and interpret things in so many different ways. It’s partly knowledge and skill but it’s mostly how we see things, our ‘vision’ that makes each photo unique. Do we look for the light, choosing colour, fun and optimism? Or do we look to play in the shadows, revealing what we choose in a monochromatic manner? I’m not attempting to reveal the profound here, just open up food for thought. Although, ironically I have literally done that today and shown you how food obsessed I can be!

Sunday morning

Gack! Now I have that song going through my head and I can assure you: this lady is NOT easy like Sunday morning, lol. As I created this scene, it really reminded me what Sundays are for me. I love to spend time on the couch with a mug of tea, just chilling and knitting. It’s one of my favourite ways to wind down, although some people would never guess this from the way I swear at my projects sometimes. Friends would like to believe that their gifts are made with love. Many of their gifts are often made with expletives! I suppose this is why my red cushion appeals so much; it often sums up my mood, especially as I approach the end of a project!

Yesterday, the Christmas tree went up in our home and today we will begin to wrap the gifts. I’m not a ‘Christmassy’ person by nature; I believe it’s more for children’s enjoyment than mine, but I do enjoy giving gifts at this time of year. It’s my way of saying “thank you, you’re appreciated” to those people in my life.

On that note, it’s time to get ready for the day and see what happens. I hope your Sunday is a chilled and peaceful one ❤

Less butt, more brain.

So, I had the best of intentions for March to be a less ‘kinky’ month for me blog wise. February turned into a butt fest with so many designers creating designs that showed off the derriere. So, new month’s resolution…less butt, more brain. Sadly, my new month’s resolution is already faltering at day 1 with this dress from Narcisse paired with these thigh chains from Elle Boutique. The events…Whore Couture Fair and Kinky Monthly. Yep. No hope for me this month either!
