Positive Life

What a perfect quote for a Sunday “You can’t live a positive life with a negative attitude”. It’s been a quiet Sunday although I had some dear friends visit briefly. There has been a close bereavement in the family recently and it’s been a relief to see my friend progress towards positive thoughts and smiles.

There’s still time to head to FaMESHed this month and enjoy the huuuge range of group gifts available. Group join is free and I’m only showing a small selection of the gifts you can pick up. Happy 7th Anniversary FaMESHed. Here’s to many more ❤

My SL Freebie & Gift Challenge.

This week my friend Meri did a 100L challenge on her blog (HERE) and it’s been an inspiration! I also spotted my friend IsaBelle do a similar post HERE, so that was it….I had a little think about what could I do along a similar vein (yep I jumped on the bandwagon!)

Firstly, there are an incredible number of generous Designers – thank you. There is also a glut of gifts (and very cheap deals) on Marketplace. Group gifts abound and there are still many lucky chairs and Midnight Mania boards in use. Don’t forget Hunts too, which are a great way of discovering new stores – see my Caspervend Hunt post HERE.

One thing I learned about this challenge is the number of stores that have their join fee set to 0L and have brilliant gifts available. Even where one store has a “higher” join fee (and how do you define ‘higher’), I counter that by pointing out they have 8 group gifts available at the moment; the combined value taking you well over the join fee. As with all things in SL, it always depends how much you want to spend on your avatar. I just hope between Meri, Isa and myself, we’ve illustrated that you can look awesome in SL without spending a fortune.

Happy shopping ❤

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 ❤

Spring Clean

So, what does a girl do when she has a couple of days off work? Note the presence of cleaning equipment and a certain ‘Spring Clean’ atmosphere in the air. Naaaaaah, she goes shopping and to the movies of course! Capt. Marvel: here I come!

Welcome Spring

While I know Spring is still on the horizon (March 21st, here we come), a girl can daydream. I’m thinking sunshine on bare skin, a cold drink to relax with and that ‘Mediterranean’ feeling that just seems to hit. Although, I’m probably describing Summer as well. Ahh well, while I daydream half my year away I’m still stuck wearing sweaters and cozy knit socks for the time being. Until then my lovelies, wrap up warm and be happy ❤

What would you do for love?

It’s a very simple question, with a very complex answer. Truth is, I don’t think any of us know until faced with the situation. When that happens, I’ll let you know 😉

Until then, I will leave  you with this gorgeous quote from Liam Neeson, which resonated with me this week. Be good, gorgeous people and enjoy ❤

Neeson

When a glass isn’t quite enough

We go for the entire bottle and why not?! Although what always seems like a good idea the night before is never a good idea the morning after. The headaches and remorse I’ve experienced in my younger days when I made decisions like the one above. I’m remembering my 18th birthday and a warm champagne cocktail specifically. The after effects were quite….memorable.

As with all things shopping inworld, as we approach the middle of the month we are spoiled with the number of events and new releases. Hats off to the Designers; I don’t know how they do it. Lootbox is still in full flow (as my boots will attest) as well as Pose Fair, which always looks top notch. The Cosmopolitan Room has just reopened and I couldn’t help but sneak off with this necklace. I’m a sucker for rigged jewellery and this necklace comes with both maitreya rigged and unrigged options. No more fiddling with resizers going insane. People, you know what I mean! It also comes with long and short chains, so plenty of options to play with.

If you’re wondering where my photo is taken, my lovely friends Angel, Grace and Jewel own a sim called Esoteric. You can always find me lurking by the bar at the club, as photographed, during Saturday events. Heck, once in a blue moon you may even hear me DJ here….but you’ll have to pop over and find out for yourself if that blue moon has appeared 😉 Until then my lovelies, enjoy your Sunday, make peace with approaching Monday and keep it fabulous ❤
