Out of My Tree!

It is a multifarious post today with items and topics from hither and thither. It is me. What else would you expect?

You also know that I get excited about the weekend cos there are so many things to see and do and buy!

I am also excited because tomorrow is May 1st in Aryaland and then SL, and so you know that that means? Yes! New hunts will happen this month and also Culture Shock opens to the public today on May 1st at midday SLT! Aaaahhh! I know!

Now the next part needed to be scripted as it looked weird otherwise, so bear with me.

Me: So, Mister and I were talking...
You: You and who?
Me: Sorry?
You: Who is Mister when he is at home?
Me: Have you forgotten the other half of the dynamic duo already?
You: Batman and Robin?
Me: Noooo, the other duo...me and Mister. He is the other blogger on this blog. His picture is at the top of this page
You: Oh, him. Always wondered who he was. Thought he was your alt or something.
Me: Oh good grief, he hasn't been away that long. He has been busy in 'that place that shall not be named'.
You: You mean RL?
Me: YOU MUST NEVER SPEAK OF THAT PLACE!
You: (sound of footsteps running away)
Me: Was it something I said? Anyhooo...Me and Mister were talking and we have decided we need a new blog name that incorporates both of us more. So, if you have any ideas or thoughts on a cool blog name for us, then throw it in comments or send me an IM. Make sure you put your name on it, cos there might be a reward for the best one.
You: (Sound of footsteps coming closer...and panting). Did you say a reward?
Me: Depends if we use it, but sure!

So, there ya have it!

Ok, enough mucking around. Here is what you have been waiting for...

Waiting, Waiting

All month I have been waiting patiently by the mailbox for my invite to Will and Kate's wedding, but sadly it must have got lost somewhere. Therefore, I will not be attending the big day. I will just have to keep the panini press I bought for them. Sad.

I am just glad that today's items cheered me up no end. I will sit at home whilst wearing one or two of them and sip on my Pimms. Cheers to you, Will and Kate!

Reminiscent of an Aerosmith Song

Sadly though, Pink is not my favourite colour, but even I made an exception when I saw what was in Indyra Originals Pink Sale. There is 60-90% off all pink clothes and it runs til May 1st, so plenty of time to get on over and pink up.

New Addition


I must confess that I love animals in RL, but have avoided the whole SL pet thing until yesterday when a friend gave me a kitten.

I didn't think I would be that excited about it but, as I put the box on ground to unpack it and it told me my kitten would arrive in 30mins, I admit I got a wee bit excited. I used that 30mins to go and buy some food and quickly read up on caring for my kitten.

I then raced back to witness her emergence from the cardboard box and from then on I was smitten with the kitten.

She is now 1 day old and growing! What I need from you is a name. If you have any ideas, let me know!

If you are interested in a kitten wander over to KittyCatS! and take a look around! I am off there now, cos I feel she needs a collar.

One of Them

I am having one of THOSE days. Just a day when the world seems to be conspiring against you. It is on days like this that I am reminded of a quote from Lawrence Welk: "There are good days and there are bad days, and this is one of them."

I am also aware that it could be way worse, so I am stopping my whinging and enjoying the little things that will brighten up my day.

The first of these is the goodies I found today at Culture Shock. It is the blogger preview days and I was proud of my resistance to all the amazing items on display until I came to the Acid and Mala store...

I also found a few freebies, so when it opens on May 1st make sure you keep your eyes out. Sorry can't give out LM yet, but will on the opening day.

There are also items that are set aside where either 100% or 50% of your Lindens go to Doctors Without Borders which is an independent humanitarian aid organisation. So, grab your wallets or purses and head over on May 1st...although I would suggest depriming first!

Pics today are taken at a lovely sim called Orange Tree

Like the title says, I have just a few items to show you today as I spent a fair amount of the day scoping out the Culture Shock event on the bloggers preview. You are going to need to make sure you have Lindens a' ready for this as there are some amazing items on display.

Trapped in Periwinkle

Today's colour for the Blogger Colour Challenge was periwinkle and I tried to get as close as I could to the colour sample that Luna put on the blog.

I got this lovely fae outfit from Evie's Closet at the Fantasy Faire, and as soon as I saw this week's colour I thought of this. It is called Avery - Blue.

The gorgeous bubble I took these pics in is called the Hanging Bubble Vine and is part of the Won-dos-erous Tree that The Epic Toy Factory is giving out as a gift in The Whiz Hunt. It is absolutely stunning. I wish I could have shown all of it. Perhaps another day.

The hair is called Tue Hair and was a past hunt item from Miel.

The skin was one I blogged earlier in the week and was only 25L at Apple May Designs. It is called Misha - Pale - Fantasy Light.

Grroooovvvyyy Baby

I am feeling a bit groovy today and I think a lot of it has to do with the amount of hot cross buns I may have eaten. I can honestly say I haven't eaten any chocolate. Of course it is more for the fact that I won't eat any chocolate that is not fair trade or any that has palm oil in it, so it counts a lot out. I won't get on my soap box here, but if you want to know more you can click the links:

Stop the Traffik
Products that don't contain palm oil

There...nuff said.
