Nina.

I love the weekends. I love them even more when there’s a bank holiday Monday and we get an extra day of freeeeeeedom! I feel like I should shout that in a Mel Gibson ‘Braveheart’ manner, brandishing a sword and flashing my bits to the English army, but hey, I’m feeling sleepy so you get some extra eeeee’s instead. I (and most of the SL shopping population) have been at FaMESHed this weekend and as it’s their 7th year anniversary round, there are a huge range of group gifts and beautiful designs to indulge in.

Or, you could use this time to get stuck into the Good Vibes Hunt, which still has another week to run. Alternatively, you could check out Curves, a new event for the curvier avatar – think Belleza, Slink, Tonic and eBody to name a few. Me, I think I’ll use the rest of my freedom for a little nap. A perfect Sunday afternoon activity 😀

Blossom

While it’s a horrible blustery day, I am still reassured by the beautiful cherry blossom I can see on the trees in my garden. It reminds me that warmer days are fast approaching.

The Trunk Show has recently opened it’s doors for the April round and so many of the beautiful offerings remind me of Spring and the warmth I’ve already mentioned. This gown by Sn@tch is so delicate; a perfect gown for a Spring wedding – especially as the pearl strap detail is to die for! If you’re looking for anything romantic/wedding/formal themed, this event is one to check out.

Enjoy x

Pixels and Stripes

While we’re only partway through the month, there are lots of events on to spoil you with. I’ve had fun exploring and seeing what’s out there at the moment. Evil Bunny Productions are very active each month with at least 2-3 events on the go. The Gacha Life and TWE12VE are in full swing until the end of the month and designers are very generous with their gifts at these events too, so well worth checking out.

Shiny Shabby starts today and I’m loving how cheeky, yet feminine my outfit is. The huds that are provided leave you spoiled for choice, so if you’re a Maitreya girl check it out. My pixelated lipstick is currently available at eBENTO and the colour choices in the hud are statement pieces. I thought the blue would contrast well against my background, which is a gacha item from The Bearded Guy. My pose, which is available at The Darkness Monthly Event, also shows off my jewellery and nails quite perfectly, which is fab. All in all, I’m set up for the weekend. I hope you are too. Enjoy ❤

Limited Edition

Here we are and it’s Saturday morning! We survived the working week, my lovelies and that is a treasure indeed. Yesterday I talked about craving a hot mug of tea. Funnily enough I had some tea yesterday evening and it was glorious. I also bought a gift for a friend….yes, it was all tea related! Today, my mind is wandering to gin and who’s to refuse such a siren’s call? So, while I ponder what to drink this early morning I will leave you with this thought: we are all limited editions. We should place a higher value on ourselves and refuse to settle for less. Onwards buttercups, there’s mischief to be had!

Spring Has Sprung!

Indeed, Spring has finally sprung both inworld and in real life. All I can say is HOORAY! (and about flipping time) because I’m BORED of being cold! If you’re looking for a magical Spring event to explore, Ostara’s Altar is in full swing and full of fab exclusives and deals until the 5th April. There’s a 5L hunt too to enjoy. Perhaps I’ll see you there this weekend while I have a gander myself. Until then 😉

Crazy, Stupid or just plain Dumb?

I don’t know why we do it to ourselves, but we do. We see the signs, we hide things from our friends because we just *know* the looks we’ll get. We tolerate, wait patiently for things to change but they never do. Are we crazy, stupid or just plain dumb? Or a little of all three? If you ever figure it out, please let me know because I’ve had my fair share.

If you love interactive gaming inworld, then you’ll already know that Madpea Productions are one of the forerunners. Whether it’s an immersive game, a hunt or puzzles, the team is creative, crazy and always deliver the goods. The latest release is pictured next to me and guaranteed to bring mischief to the gathering. Check it out today and enjoy the chaos that follows. You’re welcome 😉

Warrior

Sometimes I get inspiration from the unlikeliest of places. Today it was this lipstick and Grace Jones! I remember watching her in The Living Daylights as a kid, being awed by her sheer strength. “This is a woman not to be trifled with”, I remember thinking and yet now, I also see her as an artist, a pioneer of her time. Isn’t that something we should all aspire to? To be so unapologetically certain of yourself that others quake in their boots? I like the thought of that.
