Wishful Thinking

As we struggle through another cold, wet September day I am caught up in wishful thinking. Wishful thinking of summer trips in Europe. Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rome, Copenhagen. So many wonderful memories; so much sunshine! I miss Italian gelato, watching the moped commuters and their antics. I miss sitting al fresco, drinking hugo spritz and feeling myself unwind. So much wishful thinking today. But also, so much to look forward to. One day, soon x

I’ve been having fun playing with new skins and makeup recently. This fantasy look came together really easily and I have the gorgeous WoW Skins and LuluB! to thank for it. After all, they helped to create this whimsical fae look that reminds me of cherry blossom in Spring. A perfect antidote to the Autumn rain battering me in rl today.

My skin (WoW Skins) is a group gift and while there is a 199L join fee (I joined when it was free, so keep your eye out for offers), there are a TON of additional group gifts you can pick up. In addition, check out the upstairs of the store for more offers including a 1000L raffle and a 300L on a mini mania board.

My makeup (LuluB!) is an event new release but will be in the store soon. Again, there are so many group gifts available, the store is definitely worth checking out. Both owners are very generous x

One fun thing about jeans is you can dress them up or down. Basic or Luxurious. Another fun thing I’m rediscovering inworld is BoM – or for us oldies, System layers reborn on a mesh body. Back in the good ol’ days of SL (2007 for me), there wasn’t such a thing as mesh. There were layers and prims. The layers ‘painted’ an appearance onto the body and the prim attachments provided shape, flex or embellishment to the outfit. We’d forever spend our days modding prims to look realistic, although some guys would mod the prims on their pants to look bigger (insert smirk here). With the re-emergence of BoM, all these old system layers can fit again. So embrace it. Layer up and enjoy the 2007 look….but in 2020.

Wow it’s been hot today. Even my non sweaty bits have been struggling in this heat! Us Brits like to talk about the weather and this weekend will certainly give us something to discuss during the cold Winter months. Oh, did I mention the evil W word? I believe I did 😉 Until then we have light flirty dresses and stunning sandals to enjoy. Oh, and so many cocktails too x
