Happy Fall.

I love Fall or as we Brits like to call it, Autumn. Yes, like Spring it’s a transitional season. But I love the colours that seem to emerge on the trees – all the browns, yellows and oranges. Earthy tones. It’s a season to wrap up warm, but there are sunny days and still opportunities to go out for walks. I don’t feel hemmed in by the weather and there certainly isn’t any Christmas music on the radio….yet! So, Happy Fall, dear reader. I hope you get plenty of Pumpkin Kisses and Harvest Wishes. Failing that, there’s always Spring to look forward to – although now I am wishing my life away!

*Le Sigh*

Don’t you just hate waiting? Some people take pleasure in the anticipation. They savour that moment just before *it* happens. Whatever *it* is supposed to be. I’m not one of those people! It’s been commented before that I can be patient, but more often than not, I’m just impatient. Lol. I want it and I want it now! So, sitting and waiting for a train to arrive is not my idea of fun. Sometimes the destination is much more fun than the journey itself.

Boy, Bye.

Ohhh I have so many little treats to tell you about today, but you need to be super speedy quick if you want to grab them all. Ready? Come with me 😀

SL16B is in full swing and there are 4 amazing sims packed with SL’s biggest names with a bunch of special offers and free gifts. Needless to say, the sims are busy but you have until the 8th July to check out the sales and pick up the amazing free gifts on offer. Huge thanks to the Designers for their generosity. I want to draw your attention to my sneakers – they’re on offer at the event, but ALSO L & B Swear group join is reduced to 25L at the event too. If you then go back to the mainstore, there are a bunch of group gifts available, including exclusive add on huds for items. I’m wearing the suede add on hud for the sneakers and love em ❤

ChicChica has been generous once again and has this fab holdable lemonade available as a free gift until the 30th June. It’s such a cute little accessory and perfect for summer evenings. It does beg the question “why are you in jeans and a sweater in Summer, Wynn?” ….which leads me on to my jeans, funnily enough! Also on offer until the end of the month, L & B Swear has these fab jeans and belt on limited discount at Flourish Sales Studio. I love the side ribbon detail and each pack comes with a ribbon colour change hud. So depending on your mood, you can switch it up…or down…or sideways.

Finally, my cute kitty pose stems from a Facebook appeal and I’m so happy to see that Image Essentials have taken up the challenge and NAILED it. Last week, a blogger on facebook put the question out to the internet “would someone design a crazy cat lady pose set” and literally a few days later, this set was born. It is a gacha mainstore release and it’s fab to see more mainstore releases. Another brilliant thing is if you join the Image Essentials group (free), all group members get one free go on the gacha machine….and this includes EVERY machine in the gacha room. What a brilliant gift for group members?! Love the idea and gives you a chance to have a play about with lots of new poses you may not have previously considered.

Ok, that’s me done for this miserable looking Wednesday. I’m off back to RL and I hope today will be a less stressful one than the previous two. Make sure you pick up your items before they go at the end of the month. Enjoy your day, lovely people, and be kind to each other ❤

Bang Bang!

Because sometimes, you gotta take matters into your own hands for a more effective result……


These jeans – where do I begin? Well, having braved the carnage that is Uber 24 hours after it opens, I managed to pick up these beauties and they don’t disappoint. Fab fit and I’m loving the graphic options. Anyone who knows me knows….cake, sex and knitting. So if I’m gonna see jeans with mini donuts, cupcakes, sparkles and UNICORNS on them….they’re going in my inventory. The Eva sweater is a perfect colour match and I’m ready to kick some ass in these heels.

Wrapped in a Bow

Wynn was not a happy scorceress today. Not only had she been called *cute* by a friend, but her magical orbs kept shooting fluffy kittens at her enemies rather than linghtning strikes! Wynn scowled and adjusted the bow on her outfit. Christmas may be on the horizon but she was in no mood to celebrate.

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.

SL14 Anniversary Event – June 2017 only!

The SL14 Anniversary event is in full swing til the 26th June. Part of the celebrations is a huuuuge shopping event spanning three sims. There are an enormous number of well known stores participating, including Blueberry, Addams, Gos, Alice Project, Cae, Deadwool and many many more. Each store has a free gift and if you consider there’s three sims worth, that’s a lot of free gifts from these generous designers.

Needless to say I hitched up my pixels and headed over to each sim and grabbed what I could. All landmarks can be found HERE and some sims are harder to get into than others. I’ve picked out my favourites below, but there are many more I couldn’t fit into a photograph. What can I say? Get your asses over there before the event ends! No need to thank me……although I do like a little compliment *winks*
