Maya

Congratulations people, give yourselves a pat on the back. You survived the week. Yes…you gorgeous people! YOU! YOU DID IT!! ……..

This is exactly what I was thinking as I finished my working week ….ohhhh…… 7 hours ago now. This first week back has been brutal. Some would say it’s self inflicted. I prefer to think of it like ripping off a plaster: a short amount of intense pain for the long term benefit (in this case, I had two weeks off at Christmas).

Do I have any regrets? Right now…yes! lol! Will I probably do this again? Probably LOL! Who knows what this year will bring in RL, but so far in SL, there’s been a few surprises. It’s definitely going to be an interesting one!

Drink on my own.

If I told you that the title was inspired by my champagne, would you believe me? I do hope so! As well as Christmas, I’ve celebrated my birthday this past week. In my little group of gifts I received two rather lovely looking bottles of gin, which I’m excited to try. I also received two thermal vests….but that’s a story for another day! Inworld, I can always find an excuse to glam up and I’m in a party mood with this dress and heels. Paired with killer accessories and the right makeup ….. we are good to party ourselves into 2019!

Something sweet in your mouth?

The candy cane *obviously* you naughty little minxes! Cue an over dramatic eye roll and a little smirk, hidden behind a hand.

As we approach the end of one year and celebrate the beginning of a new one, I’ve used the quiet time to sneak around a few events that are still going on inworld. Be quick though, because there are only a couple of days left. The Imaginarium is a part sale, part gacha event that is well worth checking out. It is also organised by Gimme Gacha Productions and if you are a group member there are gifts available too.

The Trunk Show is still in full swing if you’re looking for something wedding/formal inspired (NYE gown, anyone?) for a party in the next couple of days. My nails and makeup are from the event and with nails like these….they’ll definitely leave scratch marks down anyone’s back.

Finally, I snuck over to Ricielli for their Christmas hunt this week and had a lot of fun hunting for some beautiful clothes. There is a hunt key at the store entrance, showing the body types and prizes you can find. Each box is 15L but you can buy a trans / no trans version of each, which is perfect for gifting. I love that option in a hunt, especially if I see something I want to gift to my BFF who has an Hourglass body. One for her and one for me.

On that note, I hope you all are feeling rested and ready for the new year. Like it or not, time moves forward and 2019 is gonna smack our tooshies soon enough. Until then, party on and keep sucking those candy canes 😉

Sunday mornings

Sunday mornings are the perfect time for chilling on the sofa, cuddling into a blanket and just watching telly shows. Relaxation, rest and nothing else. My own little piece of heaven where there is no rushing about, no demands and plenty of coffee on tap. Perfection ❤

Sweet tooth

Today is a day to dress comfortably and chill on the sofa eating candy. I’ve decided. There are some Netflix shows that I want to settle with, grab my new sofa blanket and off we go. Disenchantment, Sabrina the Teenage Witch….who knows but whatever happens, I’m going to be comfy and lazy today 😀

He makes me blush.

It could be a comment, a single word, an inflection of tone. It could be one or many things. But he still knows how to make me blush. Every time.

The masks we wear

I’ve always been fascinated by masks, whether the ones we wear as decorative pieces or the ones we wear to hide who we truly are. Often with our online personas, we choose to hide ourselves and disassociate our online actions from who we are in our real lives. Would we really be so abrupt, rude or honest to the point of nastiness to someone if we were standing in front of them? I’m sure for a number of people the answer would be a resounding “yes!” but for many others, perhaps not. I’ve often read in people’s profiles “who I am here is the same in RL as in SL” or “there is a real person behind this avatar, with real feelings”. I wonder if these people actually remember their own words when their acts cause someone else to feel hurt or upset too. Who knows? These are all ramblings of an overactive mind.

A new round of the Trunk Show opened on the 19th October and as always the range of designs on offer are lovely. Make sure you take some time to check out this round to see what spooky twist the Designers have come up for you. In the meantime, I shall continues my explorations of SL and try to find you some more beautiful destinations to enjoy x
