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!

Vintage Valentines

Traditionally, Valentines tends to be pink, fluffy and all things cute. Throw in a plushie, a love heart and plenty of chocolate. Make it uber girly and add some sparkle. It just doesn’t appeal to me these days! Perhaps in years gone by this would have appealed, because I am a romantic at heart but now, my definition of romance has changed. It isn’t about big displays of affection or spending stupid amounts of money. It’s about little thoughtful moments, for example talking and holding hands on the couch while you share a meal. It’s about taking time to be with the one you love, sharing their burdens, lifting their spirits and having yours lifted, in turn. It’s the little words, signs and gestures that show love and care. They don’t cost much but are priceless and create precious memories that will tide you over if you’re having a low day ❤

Desert Rose

There is something about this scene that just makes me want to grab my passport, a suitcase of clothes and fly somewhere hot. Feel the sun warm my skin, seep into my bones and calm me. The colour and vibrance of these pieces scream Morocco and India. Colour, mirror work, tapestries and rugs. You can smell the spices in the market, a cacophony of noise and bustle as you try to jostle through crowds. It’s chaos, it’s madness, it’s amazing. It’s something unique and wonderful, a true life experience.

Sparkle Wherever You Go

I couldn’t resist making this quote my blog post title, it’s a perfect little life mantra. Be the one who lights up the room, the one who sparkles. Admittedly your definition of “lighting up the room” may be switching on the light…but there you go, we all interpret things in different ways 😀

As it’s February, be prepared to be hit with all things girly, cute, pink and Valentine’s themed ….. until the 14th! There is always a temptation to go Anti-Valentines and stick two fingers up to the whole event, but I’m a girl who loves romance and affection, so I’m all out for the pink. Gimme love, bishes! Both Mystical Market and the Broken Heart Fair run until the middle of the month, so be quick if you want to check them out (I have and they’re fab!) The Stupid Cupid Hunt is back for it’s 8th year running (!!) and all prizes are 1L when you find them in each store. Good luck hunting, have fun shopping and remember most of all…sparkle wherever you go ❤

In the Bedroom

Sadly I haven’t been feeling well the last couple of days. As with all things Wintry, all sorts of viral infections have reared their heads and I’ve succumbed. Cue a temperature, sore throat and aching limbs. Now, I know I can be a *little* dramatic on occasion, but yes I don’t do illness well. I want pampering, fuss and love. Heck, I want to be curled up in bed with toasty warm toes. So don’t mind me if I head back to bed. This bedroom scene is just too cozy to ignore x

Lazy Lounge wear

This is definitely my mood today….and probably tomorrow too. Sadly, not the day after as I go back to work after two weeks off 😥 Ahh well, I guess all good things must come to an end, although I could happily take another week off work to relax. Christmas is a busy time as we have a lot of rl birthdays and an anniversary. Yes, it’s lovely to skip the 6am wake ups, but it isn’t a restful time of year. Ok, I need to stop grumbling and enjoy these last two days of freedom! I hope you have a lovely weekend x
