Birthday Treats

Good morning my lovelies! Who doesn’t love a little birthday treat? Amataria is celebrating her birthday with a sale, group gifts and a free gift for all at the store. All these goodies are available until tomorrow (3rd June) so you have time to check it out if you’re quick quick! My birthday outfit is the free gift, and as a recent Legacy converter, I am loving my new curves in this outfit. Honestly, if I was wearing the same outfit in rl, it wouldn’t look so…controlled. Yeah….it’d be a mess lol. Aaaanyway, grab a piece of birthday cake, head on over and you too can create your perfect birthday look. Enjoy x

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!
