Love, Actually

Every Christmas, I watch Love Actually and have a really good happy cry. Being a single mum means being a superhero, and mostly badass, cos I dont have the luxury of saying “wait till your father gets home” My watching of this movie, and letting myself get immersed for 2 hours every year has become something of a ritual for me. I have been spoilt rotten both in sl and rl this year, it being my first Christmas with my family for 14 years, and Mini Ash’s first family Christmas ever.

I’m showing some of the sl gifts I was so lucky to receive. It must be hard to buy for our group, knowing that not only are we hardcore shoppers, but also cos we blog, we already have a shiltload of stuff. We somehow muddled through (le sigh :P) and got each other some great gifts. We have all been rocking the nails from Mandala, I blame that Whimsy and her accessories addiction, it’s starting to rub off on me. After seeing the vendors ads on the feed a few months ago and getting sidetracked searching for one of the poses used, I had forgotten it was a store I wanted to check out. So when we landed there and I saw what is prob my fave sl ad of all time I squeed. The pieces are so beautiful and well made, you’ll want to own them all. The jacket is a terrible generous group gift from Muism, that our Sileny rocked so epicly on FS, theres a guys and girls version, so hurry and grab it before it poofs from notices. The dress is from a new to me store LP Designs. It’s the perfect mini dress and you could totally throw some leggings or jeans under it to dress it down.

Once upon a time, I had a folder full of clothes from Viva La Glam, it has vanished into the ether, but the store hasnt. And lucky you, theres a wee sale going on too, till January. I got loads while I was there, but was sad to see old stock wasnt out, cos I would have re-bought everything I lost. I had the best jeans, overalls and dresses……wah! Anyhoo, enough whining from me, I have to get ready for family xmas part 2, The Revenge Of The Evil Brother :p Ash Out.

  2. I watched Love Actually on Christmas eve too! Such an amazing movie. I can never pick which one of the stories I like best… perhaps the story between the author and the portuguese woman, yes I think that’s my fave!

    Happy Christmas!
