It’s all about the heel

Ohh I *do* love a killer heel. In RL, I tend to avoid them but in SL, the higher the better. There’s no need to worry about twisted ankles or the effects of too much gin tipping you over in front of a policeman, leading to your knickers being flashed at them (a story for another day, perhaps). No, in SL we can be graceful, statuesque and frankly have pins all the way to our eyeballs (and some people do). So embrace those heels ladies, embrace them and drink more gin!

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.

Aletta

Even though it’s nearly the end of February (and a horrid rainy day outside), I’m happy to report new beginnings and positivity inworld. The Trunk Show has opened it’s doors for the first round of 2020 and if you love all things feminine and wedding focused, this is the event to visit. I love showing that pieces at the event can be ‘dressed down’ as well as ‘dressed up’ and this cute top, paired with my new fave denim skirt is perfect Spring femme casual. The skirt is actually part of a 2-in-1 dress ensemble, complete with a ton of texture options to play with, so make sure you check it out too. Finally my hair – I’m so happy to report that Sn@tch is back and actively creating again. The owner hasn’t been well since last year, but is back on her feet and treating us once more to awesome designs. Make sure you check out the stores and events below for further goodies and remember to enjoy your day 🙂

The Garden

Sadly, as I sit and write this, my garden is nowhere near as appealing or warm as this scene. In my mind it’s still summer and I could easily curl up on this daybed and read a book, a cup of tea nearby. I know it’s Summer in the Southern Hemisphere but up North, I want it back! I guess that’s the thing with the seasons though; the wait is worth it ❤

On the Red Carpet

As an avid moviegoer, I always look forward to Oscars season, trying to spot the movies I’ve seen over the year that hits the “mark”. There are plenty to choose from this year; the most memorable for me currently is Joaquin Phoenix’s acting in Joker. Wow. There’s no other way to describe it, other than being mesmerised at the screen for two hours as we witness one man’s descent.

On the flip side, I also look forward to the Razzies, also checking to see which movies I’ve seen (or thankfully haven’t seen), are on the list. I’m sure I’ve seen a few of them, and there will be more to come. Half the fun is just sitting back and thinking “wtf am I doing here?” But that’s the fun of the cinema. It’s supposed to whisk you away to somewhere new.

Once again Trunk Show & LANA have delivered, and while my gown here is pristine, there is a bloody version available too. Perfect for any upcoming Halloween parties, so enjoy! The Trunk Show is on for another couple of weeks, so there’s time for a browse x

Matrimonial

If you’re planning a wedding or attending a formal event inworld soon, check out The Trunk Show. If you haven’t visited before, it’s a bimonthly event dedicated to these two types of events in SL. A perfect opportunity to pick up a gown, perhaps some decor or even professional Wedding Services. It may inspire you to try something new. I may even convince the Mister to pop there with me one day….

In every angel, a demon hides.

We’ve all met that person, haven’t we? They’re friendly, approachable, kind hearted. They want to fight your battles with you, support you and soon a relationship forms and builds. But, what if that person was just using all this to take advantage? Wait until you trust, your defences are down and then manipulate you? What if they turn your words and thoughts against you so they appear the victim? What do you do then? Every relationship requires a leap of faith to develop beyond acquaintances. Do you continue to leap and risk being burned? Or do you…..not?
