As the weather grows colder and the days shorter and darker, my mind always turns to layering knitwear and seeking out my woollen socks. Now is surely the time to curl up with a book, a cup of something warm, and simply be kind to myself… wrapping myself as much in warm thoughts as in … More A Place To Hibernate
The world seems to spiral in its craziness. Although I can do little to dampen, or control that craziness outside, I can try and (at least) cling to calm within my four walls. When my mind is whirring with turmoil and my spirit trampled, I can find solace surrounded by beauty and calm. I used … More Beauty And Calm
The best and most calm state of mind very much starts with the right surroundings. The perfect night out starts off with plenty of time to get ready. How gorgeous is this new bedroom set from Dutchie, which is out now at Fameshed! Each of the items comes in four colours (Click to change them), … More A Place Of Calm
I feel like such a magpie in SL. I can’t help collecting beautiful things, especially when I know I can throw them all together and build a place of peace. I do add to my increasingly expanding inventory, but also find that some old favourites are items that I use over and over in my … More A Place Of Peace
2020 has been one hell of a year. On one hand it’s definitely a year to forget, but I am pretty sure it’s one we shall all remember! This year has changed me a lot. Difficult times do that huh… they test us, and challenge us to change to meet them. Nothing should leave us … More Shine !
I am one of those intensely annoying optimists. Even when everything seems to be going to shit, I desperately try and find some hint of silver lining. Life and the world has become truly crazy in varying shades for all of us, wherever we are… and yet… it seems to be bringing out the best … More Hold Tight To Your Calmness!
There’s nothing wrong with being selfish, well… just as long as it’s the right kind of selfish. I am speaking of that self-centred guarding of one’s own happiness and peace. I don’t ever advocate treading over others to get what I want. Neither do I ever think it’s a good plan to make things better … More Calm And Coffee
I am one of those people completely susceptible to good blogging! chuckles My major downfall are good blogging pictures about decor and interiors. I seem powerless to resist the ideas they sell! 😉 I can’t decide if I just never grew out of the idea of decorating a doll’s house, or if I am really … More Breakfast, beauty and bloggers
Too often time is something I have been guilty of taking for granted. Time just…. is. Days come and go, especially at this time of year between Christmas and New Year, when I have very little clue which day of the week it is. I am not too old to remember the seemingly sleepless Christmas … More Time
What a year it has been! I was writing a letter to a friend yesterday to be sent with her Christmas card. She lives up in Scotland and we only manage to see each other only once or twice a year. This year we haven’t managed to meet up, so I thought I would scribble … More A time for contemplation
