Aperture

I dislike January. Strongly. It never used to bother me, but I find that as I become older (and wiser) I realise that January is one of those months I just can’t wait to get through. Thankfully it always goes by quickly; that’s it’s one saving grace. I can’t wait for warmer days, more sunshine in the evenings and that general feeling of “chill” that seems to seep into my soul as I walk home on a Friday afternoon listening to my favourite tunes. Bring it on!

A lovely lady I know has recently resurrected a group inworld designed for members to chat, teleport to new places and generally have fun. A Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, if you will. I love the idea for two reasons: it’s a chance to meet people and explore new destinations in SL. I’ve been around for 11 years now (12 in February…don’t judge) and it’s very easy the older you get, to just stick with your favourite haunts and talk with the same people. I’m hoping by putting myself out more, I might discover something new and exciting this year….aaaaand then crawl back into my little hole and hide. LOL! We are creatures of habit, after all.

If you’d like to know more about the group inworld, pop me an IM. I’m always happy to chat and it’s fab to meet like minded people. Until then, be good…or if you can’t be good, be very good at the mischief you make 😉

More Champers Pls!

Oh dear, it looks like Wynn is all dressed up with nowhere to go today! However, what a demanding little attitude she has as well. More champers please….indeed! Well, we all know what happens to girls who get a little too demanding; they often get exactly what they deserve. Somehow I don’t think that’ll put this little Missy off one bit though 😉

Sunday morning

Gack! Now I have that song going through my head and I can assure you: this lady is NOT easy like Sunday morning, lol. As I created this scene, it really reminded me what Sundays are for me. I love to spend time on the couch with a mug of tea, just chilling and knitting. It’s one of my favourite ways to wind down, although some people would never guess this from the way I swear at my projects sometimes. Friends would like to believe that their gifts are made with love. Many of their gifts are often made with expletives! I suppose this is why my red cushion appeals so much; it often sums up my mood, especially as I approach the end of a project!

Yesterday, the Christmas tree went up in our home and today we will begin to wrap the gifts. I’m not a ‘Christmassy’ person by nature; I believe it’s more for children’s enjoyment than mine, but I do enjoy giving gifts at this time of year. It’s my way of saying “thank you, you’re appreciated” to those people in my life.

On that note, it’s time to get ready for the day and see what happens. I hope your Sunday is a chilled and peaceful one ❤

A life in colour

It’s a recurring theme I feel strongly about and one I often talk about in my blog. Having met with a friend recently who spent so much of her life hiding in the shadows, she has now begun to live her life how she wants to; without compromise and without apology. I admire it very much, although it will take adjustment. But a life lived in colour, rather than a life lived in the shadows; it’s something I think we should all aspire to have.

Festive Fiesta

So, even though Christmas is now 24 days away and I have so many festive goodies to share with you, this outfit makes me fee quite Spanish! Perhaps All that’s missing is a glass of something full bodied and red to complete my mood.

Anyways, as the first of the month commences, we have a bunch of fantastic hunts and events on to enjoy! Firstly, Sn@tch has swapped out their 7seas Fishing set and my hair and accessory are two of the prizes. You don’t need to bait the rod to win any of the prizes; simply cast off and win some festively themed prizes.

The Annex has it’s annual Advent Calendar again for group members, which starts TODAY! If you’re a group member you can pick up a daily gift at the store. You can also pop back the following day and purchase the item for 25L, so you don’t miss out. Psst, don’t tell anyone but here’s the prize key for you:

THE ANNEX ADVENT CALENDAR KEY

The Snowbound Hunt starts today and until the 12th December you can pick up a TON of prizes from over 60 designers. Prizes are priced between 0-25L and I suggest you check out their FACEBOOK PAGE for the prize keys. Boutique #187 has these fab earrings as a hunt prize; there is a gold and silver version to pick from.

Finally, I wanted to sneak in a mention about the projector set I used to take this photo with. Usually, I’m surgically attached to my LumiPro but I enjoyed playing with Salacity’s Projector pack to take this photo. There are lots of options and the full pack is reasonably priced (if I do say so myself!) I used the soft sidebox today but the complete pack looks like this:

All that’s left for me to say is…Onwards people! There’s mischief and f*ckery to spread 😀

Wait For you <3

I had the absolute pleasure of seeing these guys live last week; I even got my photo taken with the band after the gig! So, let me indulge for a moment and share my favourite song from their album. Bittersweet lyrics, but worth the wait.
