Merry Little Gothmas

I’m sure Izzy won’t mind me stealing her title, because it’s so perfect for my mood today. While my locale is bedecked with colour and festivity, I just want to wear black and hide…my personal grump corner, if you will. Christmas can be a difficult time of year for people. In my rl, we experienced a close bereavement on Christmas Eve a few years ago that now marks the season for us every year. We remember those who aren’t with us anymore. Equally, we remember the good times; the mischief moments that makes special memories. So, while my shadow guards me from behind, I look to the future, hoping for the best and positivity on the horizon ❤

Deka

Wow, I can’t believe it’s August already! I’m not one to intentionally wish my life away, but the days drag, the working weeks fly and here we are. Soon, it’ll be December and I’ll be wondering where my life is going. There’s a quote I used with my RL recently “as children time drags but the older we get, the quicker time moves.” I also warned him we were wishing our lives away praying for the weekends. He laughed, but agreed with me. Smart man! So, what’s the purpose of this rambling? I guess it’s to simply state: enjoy today. Make the most of it. So that’s what I will do, in this August sunshine 🙂

Me and my Shadow

Although I know it should read ‘my shadow and I’. I’ve been chilling with my shadow a lot recently and I have Salacity to thank for it. Newly released at the Pose Fair this month, there are a plethora of photo studio lights you can buy. All work inworld and as someone who lives for my LumiPro, these lights give it a good run for it’s money. Check them out at the Pose Fair this month; afterwards they’ll be on sale at the store.

I’m also loving these new boots and romper from Beautiful Dirty Rich; the colour huds match perfectly and there are plenty of patterns to choose from. It feels like summer, without having to get into a bikini 😉

Summer fun

Thankfully we’re finally getting to that time of year, where sunshine is breaking through the clouds and warmth is in the air. It’s clear there’s summer fun around the corner. For me, this will mean getting out in the warmth and scoffing myself with lots of ice cream. Perhaps a trip to the seaside too, who knows?

This weekend Monthly Midnight Madness hits us square in the face with a raft of fantastic freebies and heavily discounted items. But you need to be quick! TODAY is the chance to pick up the items for free, if you’re lucky enough. Tomorrow is the chance to pick up the items heavily reduced. So, if you like my foot jewellery…be quick! More info about MMM is available HERE.

Finally, a new round of Garden of Shadows has opened and as my summer dress shows, gothic isn’t always about dark colours. There are lots of goodies to find, so I’m sure I’ll be sharing more with you soon.

Zom-bunny

I wonder what a zom-bunny would actually look like…whether you’d see these cute little mauraders actually nomming on brains or whether they’d just have a major fetish for carrots. Which, when you think about it is really healthy and perhaps we should adopt the zom-bunny lifestyle. Who knows? Definitely not me!

Last weekend, Europe caught up with the rest of SL and our clocks went forward by an hour. This wasn’t a problem Sunday morning when I could luxuriate in bed but…Monday morning….so painful. I know after a few days I’ll be used to it, but right now. No. Just No.

We’re also approaching that time of year when Easter themed hunts abound in SL, a veritable feast of delights that leaves me hopping with excitement (see what I did there…I definitely need that extra hour’s sleep!) I love keeping up with hunts inworld and will often be seen dragging my BFF around the grid looking for those lil hard to find critters. So if you ever see me, nose to the ground, with my cross hairs swinging about in a fury, you’ll now know what I’m up to 😉

More events to explore!

Events, events, events. There’s never a lack of them in SL these days. Yesterday, I talked about the Red Light District opening this week, and two further events have just opened, packed with discounts and gifts for you to check out.

The Darkness Chamber Fair – Bargains on the Bayou runs until the end of this month and is full of names you will know and love, plus some newer brands in SL, which I’ve had fun discovering. There are exclusives and discounts to pick up and it’s worth popping over to have a nose about.

Ostara’s Altar is run by Dark Passions Events, the same people who bring us the Gothic Garage Sale. There is plenty of discounts to keep you busy plus a 5L hunt. This event runs until the 3rd April, so a little more time to spread the pennies. Both events showcase new talent as well as existing designers.

So if you have some free time today, between pints of guinness for St Patricks Day, you might want to check out these events. Who knows, you might discover someone new….or rediscover someone you previously loved.

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.
