I have realized how lucky I am today. Today, they demolished the Christchurch Police station that was damaged beyond repair four years ago in an earthquake that flattened my city. It’s a major landmark in my city’s history. In it’s place, it’s planned for a hotel to be build. I work in the building next door to it and when I go to work tomorrow, there will just be a huge hole.
Why am I lucky though? I have lived through so many events that made the history books. I lived in South Africa through apartheid, I was in Cape Town when Nelson Mandela was released from prison, I was living in South Africa when he became president and 10 years after and now, I’m part of the rebuild of a wonderful city after a devastating earthquake.

Yesterday I finally went to the Season Story event for the first time. For regular visitors this will be old news, but I never got around to going, so please forgive how exhilarated I am! The second I landed at the event, this bookworm was in story book heaven! I immediately took out my wand and as I was already wearing my high feet from Slink. My inner princess came out and I tippy toed from one magical vender to the next, leaning over and touching everything very extravagantly with the tip of my wand. Curiously a lot of my lindens disappeared but hey, it was worth it. So I had to stop at the Chicky Pea set and capture an image. I think I may have overstayed my welcome, but I just didn’t want to leave.
Alas, I left the magic bliss behind and whipped over to the Japan fair for a different kind of joy. The joy of giving. I donated to the Shelterbox and wandered around again. In the process I donated even more. There are some amazing items on offer. If you have been there, go again! You may have missed something, like me. I found a store that I thought was gone forever. It was like running into an old friend.
Have a great Easter weekend everyone!

There was some great excitement around the new Gos shoes this weekend. And with good reason, the hud for those shoes are really so easy to use and makes skin matching a breeze. I decided to buy a few pairs and the bare feet. It will be worth your while to go check it out.
My pants are from Villena. It is unisex and also a nice item to have. The Jacket and shirt; coldLogic.
Have fun shopping 🙂
