Yorkshire

As much as I enjoy setting up scenes on my own land, one thing I really love about blogging is discovering new locations inworld for photographs. The Yorkshire sim is now firmly in my fave landmarks list because put simply, the colours schemes when you visit are just beautiful. I really enjoyed playing with windlights and projectors to capture the shadows in this shot and I hope you enjoy it too. Also, please take the chance to explore the location – you won’t be disappointed.

Because it’s not gonna lick itself *obviously*

Ahhhh Christmas (yes, I’m saying it out loud now), here we are. Again. Another year nearly done, another opportunity to overeat and resurrect old family politics in RL and in SL…another opportunity to pick up pixel goodies! I dragged my friend on the Peace on Earth hunt this weekend and am loving some of the items you can see photographed. There are nearly 300 stops on the hunt though, so make sure you check out the hint list for many more prizes. Also, one of my fave stores, Pink Cream Pie, has a month long stocking hunt and this skirt has to be my new favourite item from it. There are 20 stockings to find in total, so get your hunting shoes on!

A good book

I love a good book, always have since I was a child. I grew up lost in worlds outside my four walls, engrossed in lives that other people lived or created. Even now as an adult, if a good book, a really good read captures my attention I won’t do anything else socially. I’ll tuck myself into bed and read for hours. I remember finishing the Kite Runner at 2am and just thinking “wow!” That’s the sign of a good book to me; one that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Do you have any to recommend to me?

Ascendant

Once again it’s a Sunday morning and I’m awake too early. So, after being the domestic goddess I am (don’t laugh), I’m sat here wondering if it’s too early/late to have a little nap. Maybe later this afternoon perhaps. While this picture shows me in ascendance, I also look at it and want to lay down and sleep. Rest. Maybe it’s possible to do both? Who knows.

As the leaves fall

 Autumn is a funny time of the year; sometimes I struggle to reconcile it. Part of me mourns the summer that has gone and anticipates the winter to come. The other part of me is optimistic and looks forward to warmth once more. It’s a transition season; a time of change. Change is coming, it’s how I deal with it that matters. 

I’ve experienced some changes recently that while I initially feared them, I can see a positive and rewarding way forward. Change is neither good nor bad, it’s just …. different and we can all adapt to different ❤️

The Halloween Dating Diaries (i)

Wytchy Wynn was in a dilemma. “It’s so hard to find a decent date these days….they keep brandishing pitchforks at me or running away when I fly towards them on my broom.” She rearranged her skirt and pursed her lips slightly in thought. It wasn’t that she was a fussy date. Literally, they could be alive, rotting or dead and she’d give them a chance. Maybe it was time to expand her horizons and look at other options? This thing called “Tinder” might be worth considering, plus a phone was much easier to transport than her cauldron……Hmmmm, what to do, what to do……

Coffee

There are some days when I wake up…..tired…..and I know it’s going to be a long one. Those are the days I daydream about strong coffee. A couple of years ago I made the decision to go caffeine free (well as much as possible) in my life. So decaff coffee, tea, fizzy drinks; if I drink caffeine accidentally can I feel my eyeballs peel back in their sockets! The Boss thinks I’m mad for giving it up and some days I’m inclined to agree. So excuse me, while I sip this coffee and wish I could pop an espresso shot into it.
