Magic

It’s been a long time since I talked about song lyrics. This song has been playing on my mind for a couple of days.

One life here with me and it’s magic.

Sargasso Sea

I have always been a fan of the classics, especially books written by the Bronte sisters. I can feel the Mister rolling his eyes at me already as I say this to you. Imagine my surprise when I heard of a book “Wild Sargasso Sea”, written in the 1960s, telling the story of the first Mrs Rochester. The Mad Woman in the Attic. Ahh Mr Rochester, you are not a hero, you are an emotional abuser and a possessive, cruel man. We get hints of this in Jane Eyre, but truly witness it in this novel. Much of the story is based in the Caribbean, just after the abolition of slavery. The reader is launched into a world with an abundance of colour, scent, sensation and it is intoxicating. Definitely a book to add to your “must read” list, and I’d love to know your thoughts afterwards. Enjoy x

Careful What You Wish For

Ahh poor foolish Wynn, what have you done? This will teach you to find a book in a secondhand store and try to make your wishes come true. I know you wanted to get away, a vacation from reality, but honestly…..this is not the solution! A solution would be a 747 and a tropical island, not a beanstalk to the sky. On a plus, you’ll still get to work on your tan though. Hmmmmm…..maybe it isn’t such a bad idea after all 😉

Midsummer Enchantment

For those who love their fashion, home and garden Gothic, Whimsical, Fae or Bohemian, Midsummer Enchantment is now open and packed with goodies to enjoy. The event runs until the 26th July, so you have plenty of time to pop along and check things out. There is also a 5L hunt on the sim so keep your eye out for little purple masquerade masks as they contain little treats. I’ve photographed a few of them here for you. One thing I love about the event is the build and the event organisers always provide perfect nooks and crannies for photographs.

On to the essential information….
