Mahina

Ahh Sunday mornings, I’ve been waiting the entire week for you. Literally lol. For all normal people, Sundays are a day of lie ins and rest. Sadly not me and not today. While I work full time in rl, I am also studying for a professional qualification. More letters to put after my name. I was up early to study but it will be worth it in the end…that’s what I keep telling myself. In the mean time blogging helps me relax and focus on things that aren’t just textbooks or theorists long dead. So, thank you if you’re reading this. Thank you if you check out any of the links below and have a little shop. You’re helping me find balance in all this chaos and it’s very much needed x

Nuptials

Last blog post I talked about Spring approaching and the positivity that comes with it. Spring always reminds me of weddings. Nuptials. I grew up near a church, so every Sunday my mornings were punctuated by bells in the distance from my room. Even now, I’ll see horse drawn wedding carriages or cars decked with ribbon and streamers as we approach warmer weather. I always smile, talk excitedly and watch. It brings back memories and I hope it creates happy memories for those special people too.

Until death do us part….

Ahhh my pretties, it’s October! Officially the spookiest month of the year, which is awesome if you love to dress up and hit themed events inworld. As I was just discussing with a friend, October is a brilliant month for events, hunts, sales and generally all things spooky. Dare I say it (go on, I will), the costumes outdo Christmas every year…..and yes, I said the big C word again. Naughty Wynn, spank her bottom >.>

Hold onto your pixel panties my lovelies, grab a landmark or three (all below) and join me on this spooktacular ride. It’ll be a blast 😀

Bedroom Eyes

There are some days when I just want to tuck myself into a duvet fort and watch a good movie. Or three. Possibly nap afterwards. Or during. Who knows? Usually I get these urges around 11am on a Tuesday, at work, when I decide “that’s it. I need to win the lottery.” Sadly, I haven’t won yet, although I haven’t bought a ticket in a while either!

Unlike naughty Wynn, I don’t usually take food into bed with me. There’s something about crumbs getting everywhere that makes me mentally wriggle, so I tend to avoid it. However, my pixel self has clearly been raiding the events to get herself ready for bed. Specifically, FaMESHed for this gorgeous little shortie set, The Ark for a new manicure and TWE12VE for this delish cupcake. As all events are on borrowed time until the next round, make sure you hopfoot it quickly if you see anything you like. Otherwise check out the stores once the events are done. All that’s left for me to do is finish off this little snack and see if I can locate some more. Until next time ❤

Feeling Kawaii

Some days we just feel cute and fluffy. There are other days when the spiky, brusque attitude comes out to play, but today it’s gotta be Kawaii. Funnily enough, it was never a term I’d heard of or used before discovering SL. I’d just say “cute” and that would be that. My RL town isn’t very culturally or ethnically diverse, so one thing I love about SL is how so many people from different backgrounds can come together and create a community. Where else in the world would we have this experience?

Did I mention the time…..

I always love a story that starts with this sort of title because you just *know* it’s going to be a good one. Whether you imagine their noses growing as they spin a yarn or you just fall about laughing at the situation, it doesn’t matter. It’s going to be fascinating. I had a similar experience a little while back with a friend. He started, with the above sentence but ended it with this:

“Did I mention the time I raced the Princess of Monaco across the Gobi in a tuk tuk, obviously I won.”

Now, I have no idea if this friend had consumed a tipple or three that evening, but I know one thing. I was left with my jaw hanging open, a laugh escaping my lips and an incredible desire to hear more. These are the moments I cherish about SecondLife. People I’d never meet in my every day life, sharing extraordinary moments and creating unforgettable memories. Love it ❤

Rainbow

This hair, this outfit, heck these boots all scream one thing to me….it’s time to party! I love a bit of disco music and this outfit is getting saved for my next inworld party. Love it. I also adore the colour that the boots and my earrings bring to the party. Did someone mention drinks and nibbles? Well, I’m prepared to offer a cocktail but no one is getting a bite of cake from me. Sorry, not sorry. You’ll have to get your own 😉
