Winter’s Breath

It doesn’t matter the time of year, SL is packed with shopping events, and this time of the month is no exception. I’ve already peeked at N21 and Uber this week, spending far more than I should do, although I’m going to use my birthday as an excuse. Marketplace also has some great gifts as well, as this lovely backdrop shows. Wherever you are for NYE today, make sure you continue to look fabulous 🙂

I Killed Santa

You think I’d feel some remorse with this statement. Some sort of fear, sadness, regret. Nope. Not one bit. Want to know why? Because after 4 months of this one day being advertised everywhere I go, I’m reckoning the Big Man has a little something to answer for.

Naughty Santa!

So, Mrs Claus had promised to be a good girl but sometimes…well. The only way to be really good was to be really bad. It’s all about your sense of perspective *wink*

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.

Sugar Rush

So, when the Cap’n suggested meeting for dinner, Wynn had no idea she’d be served as dessert. Literally. “Don’t look at them in the eyes….well, eye” she muttered to herself as the swarthy band of pirates sat and began discussing treasure. Wynn blanched as she saw a one handed leader hook a ring donut from her thigh. “That was close” she thought “I’m sure he was headed for my belgian bun!”

Pout!

Painting my nails is my weekly luxury (ok, one of them… >.>) I enjoy picking the colour (the brighter the better) and going through the application procedure. I love seeing the end result and thinking that no matter what happens, I have my killer nails on 😉 Add the perfect shade of lipstick and we’re ready to go. Hair, makeup, jewellery. A perfect combination. Now…pout!
