Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤

Sometimes the contrast between SL and RL makes me chuckle. Here SL Wynn stands. Perfectly coiffured hair. Makeup intact. Heck the cellulite is non existent. Alas, RL Wynn wishes her wardrobe was as well organised and the house impeccable. On a plus, there isn’t any naughty art on her walls. We can forgive SL Wynn that indiscretion! Or can we? 😉

Playing with Shadows

I could have also titled this blog post “playing in the shadows” and the message would have worked too. One thing I love about photography in SL is how people can take the same finite resource and interpret things in so many different ways. It’s partly knowledge and skill but it’s mostly how we see things, our ‘vision’ that makes each photo unique. Do we look for the light, choosing colour, fun and optimism? Or do we look to play in the shadows, revealing what we choose in a monochromatic manner? I’m not attempting to reveal the profound here, just open up food for thought. Although, ironically I have literally done that today and shown you how food obsessed I can be!

The Caspervend Hunt

The Caspervend Hunt started recently and I spent some time this weekend dipping into it. As there are over 200 (!!) stops, I couldn’t complete the entire hunt in one sitting or show you all the gifts available, but here are a selection of the prizes you can locate. It’s a free (0L) hunt, ends on the 25th April and there are a plethora of stores and locations participating. You will need the hunt hud, which can be delivered HERE. Make sure you’re wearing it in order to receive your prizes and good luck! May the odds forever be in your favour ❤

Love yourself on the weekend

I don’t think anyone could argue with that sentiment…..could they, although in this case Wynn has taken the sentiment literally. Nothing like some Sunday loving than some Saturday loving perhaps…maybe some midweek loving? Whichever way, love yourself on the weekend!

There are some time sensitive items in my blog post that I wanted to share, so if you like them you need to hurry! My couch and pouffe are both part of this month’s round of Monthly Midnight Madness. You can find all the info about the event HERE. All you need to know is if you like these items, you have until midnight slt TODAY to purchase them heavily discounted. After today, you’ll need to check the store to see if they’re available.

My cuuuuuuute rug is part of this month’s Syndicate Sunday, which also ends TODAY. There’s also a pizza rug (not shown) that looks good enough to eat, so check them out before they’re gone.

My little candy ribbed friend is part of Muggleborn’s Easter Dildo Hunt (because that’s what people do at Easter….who wants eggs after all). The hunt is on until the 21st April and there are 5 more goodies to find *waggles eyebrows* You can find more info and a slurl HERE.

Finally, the Evil Bunny Hunt 9 and The Gacha Life events are in full swing until the end of the month. Both are organised by Evil Bunny Productions because who doesn’t need an evil bunny in their lives? You can find more info about the hunt and event HERE on the EBP website. Until then my lovelies, be good….mostly 😉

It’s Bunny Bop Time!

With Easter fast approaching, I have a bunch of fab goodies to share with you today. Many of them are time limited, so hurry hurry!

Madpea have released an Easter Calendar that is only available this month. Each day you can use either the rezzed or hud version to crack open an egg and get an Easter themed gift! The bunny cushion pictured here is one of the prizes. Further info comes with the pack, but I’m looking forward to unpacking the hidden goodies each day.

The Bunny Bop Hunt has just started and runs until the 14th April. 30 Designers have come together to offer you Easter themed hunt prizes and there’s a range of home, decor, clothing, makeup, accessories and shoooooes to find. More information can be found on the Facebook page HERE but it’s definitely one to get stuck into. Prizes can cost up to 25L so I like to scout out the Facebook page and identify exactly what I want to find….then keep my fingers crossed I actually find it!

The Boardwalk Event is still on for another week and my sofa daybed looks so cozy I could just nap in it right now! It includes a bunch of animations for you to enjoy, so I suggest you pop down and have a play 😉

Finally, the Evil Bunny Hunt has just started and runs all month. As the title suggests, it’s an Easter hunt with an evil twist although my coffee table doesn’t have any hidden surprises! I’ll be showing you more hunt prizes through the month, so stay tuned.
