Celebrate with Wine

Not that I’m biased of course, I’m more a gin girl. Make it a large one with plenty of ice and a wedge of lime 😉

As I write this, 2019 has come to an end and 2020 begins. A lot of people talk about New Year, New Resolutions. Why not talk about Continuations? Continue to try. Continue to be a good person. Continue to see the best in people. Continue to have faith. Maybe it’s more important to continue on the journey you’re already on, rather than start afresh. Who knows? I have many good intentions at the start of each year and then by March they languish *coughs and hides my gym membership card*

Ahhh well my lovelies. Thank YOU for sticking with me through 2019 and let’s hope that 2020 is a positive one for all ❤

Creative ways to say I love you.

Don’t mind me and my filthy mind. This cookie gacha set brings out the smut in me, so technically I’m going to blame Image Essentials for this photo! If you’re looking for fun Winter Knits, you can’t go wrong with this lovely sweater from Beautiful Dirty Rich. The beanie with my hair (love it – so much fun) comes with a couple of statement as well as plain options, so plenty of choice. All in all, I think I’m ready to tell the Mister “Merry Christmas” and maybe offer him a creative way to say I love him too 😉

Dog Walk!

This pose reminds me of stories that the Mister tells of his poochy. I call him the puppy but he’s a grown beast of a dog. Very tall and full of energy. This little puppy has nothing on the beast, but the enthusiasm is the same. Wave a hot bratwurst at either creature and the response is instant. Salivation and speed ❤

Holiday Shopping

They say a dog is for life, not just Christmas so someone will need to stop Wynn before she makes a mistake today. Too much holiday shopping has addled her brain and left her making poor life decisions. They do look cute though and they could keep each other company…..make Wynn exercise more with long walks….be good companions to her…..gaaaah! Now I’m doing it too!

Space Age Daydream

Sometimes you see an item and you just think “gaaaah, I have to share this with the world!” This amazing walker robot is one such item. It is bento rigged to attach to your body, which is brilliant because no vehicle rezzer is needed. I ended up dragging my bff to the store this weekend to buy one and race her around the land (the store has a road, which is really fun!) Needless to say, I ended up at the bottom of a fishing lake while she laughed at me but that’s a story for another day!

However, this one product then inspired the above scene – a perfect Space Age Daydream (and yes, I keep having Bowie on repeat in my head every time I type that statement). I wonder what a Space Age Daydream would be. Would it be something wondrous or horrific? Would the dreamer want to be back home, with Terra Firma beneath her feet or would she happily roam the stars? What companions would she take with her? Is she running from her past or is she journeying towards the future? In truth, I don’t know, but that’s the fun of Second Life – we take the time to explore and discover.

Formals.

Ahh this gown is just perfect for a red carpet formal event! I’m very excited to be wearing this ensemble today. One of my ‘guises’ inworld is as an event host for the Mister. We do regular events at two venues and the first Saturday of the month is always Formal at Esoteric. It’s usually a 1-3pm slt event, but due to the clocks changing (yes, we Brits like to be awkward), today’s event is 2-4pm slt instead. I feel perfectly dressed up and ready for the event today. The Mister will look dapper and I’ll go all mushy. It’s our thing 🙂

If you fancy joining us, the slurl is HERE. Otherwise, enjoy your weekend and if you get up to any mischief, try not to get caught 😉
