The Hot Chocolate Bar

We all have those moments. Sweet tooth moments. I spent most of my working day fantasising about having a big mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows. I was determined to head out and grab one, but no…the weather was too much of a deterrent. Maybe another day.

However, I’ll definitely need something hot to keep me toasty in this little winter outfit. As my mother would say “you’ll freeze your kidneys in that outfit!” But it’s so cute, I can’t resist. Ahhh the benefits of a pixel Winter – I can still expose myself and not feel the cold. But I am now *determined* to get that hot chocolate….and a donut too….or maybe a muffin. Perhaps a cookie. Heck, all of em 😉

Crazy, Stupid or just plain Dumb?

I don’t know why we do it to ourselves, but we do. We see the signs, we hide things from our friends because we just *know* the looks we’ll get. We tolerate, wait patiently for things to change but they never do. Are we crazy, stupid or just plain dumb? Or a little of all three? If you ever figure it out, please let me know because I’ve had my fair share.

If you love interactive gaming inworld, then you’ll already know that Madpea Productions are one of the forerunners. Whether it’s an immersive game, a hunt or puzzles, the team is creative, crazy and always deliver the goods. The latest release is pictured next to me and guaranteed to bring mischief to the gathering. Check it out today and enjoy the chaos that follows. You’re welcome 😉

Something sweet in your mouth?

The candy cane *obviously* you naughty little minxes! Cue an over dramatic eye roll and a little smirk, hidden behind a hand.

As we approach the end of one year and celebrate the beginning of a new one, I’ve used the quiet time to sneak around a few events that are still going on inworld. Be quick though, because there are only a couple of days left. The Imaginarium is a part sale, part gacha event that is well worth checking out. It is also organised by Gimme Gacha Productions and if you are a group member there are gifts available too.

The Trunk Show is still in full swing if you’re looking for something wedding/formal inspired (NYE gown, anyone?) for a party in the next couple of days. My nails and makeup are from the event and with nails like these….they’ll definitely leave scratch marks down anyone’s back.

Finally, I snuck over to Ricielli for their Christmas hunt this week and had a lot of fun hunting for some beautiful clothes. There is a hunt key at the store entrance, showing the body types and prizes you can find. Each box is 15L but you can buy a trans / no trans version of each, which is perfect for gifting. I love that option in a hunt, especially if I see something I want to gift to my BFF who has an Hourglass body. One for her and one for me.

On that note, I hope you all are feeling rested and ready for the new year. Like it or not, time moves forward and 2019 is gonna smack our tooshies soon enough. Until then, party on and keep sucking those candy canes 😉

A Brief History of Time: Release the Kraken!

The 1980’s were a bit of a disappointment for Wynn. While other girls were discovering ra-ra skirts and shoulder pads (double denim anyone?), Punk Ass Wynn discovered her musical calling…about 10 years later than everyone else. In an attempt to show everyone how truly bad-ass she was, an exotic pet had been purchased. Sid, as he was affectionately known, was supposed to be a miniature octopus. The man who’d sold him to her in the pub had assured Wynn that such a pet existed and she’d be the envy of all her mates. Sid, Wynn realised quickly, had grown to be a big boy. A very big boy indeed. As Wynn struggled to feed Sid one night, she wondered if flushing him down the toilet had really been a good idea after all.

A beautiful lie

I read a profile recently, where the author talked about truth versus lies. Her thoughts were that we don’t really seek the truth, although we think we do. What we actually seek are beautiful lies, which mask the truth. We don’t want to know the truth because that will burst the little bubble that we live in. Her theory was that Secondlife is a beautiful lie and what resonated with me was that she’d cleared out her profile but left this statement intact. An epitaph to her emotions at the time she wrote it. Now, I don’t know this lady or her circumstances. I certainly wish her well and I hope that wherever she is, she’s in a happier place. I’m left wondering what we consider our ‘truth’ to be and what our limits are online. I don’t believe SL is at fault because we make our own choices and we determine our own limits. But I do agree that it can be perceived as a beautiful lie….a catalyst for what people bring into it, rather than anything more sinister.

Sunday mornings

Ahh, for me this is what Sunday mornings are for. A lazy walk to your nearest barista, a large cup of my favourite beverage and settling somewhere quiet and reading a good book. Sadly I’m not sure how long I’ll get to be lazy today, but I’ll make sure I get some quiet time, in between the rush. I hope you do too 🙂
