Check out the stunning necklace and earrings from Baiastice at The Liaison Collaborative. These are truly statement pieces and you only have a couple of days left to grab them at the event before it closes on March 30.

A few days ago I promised a closer look at the latest fedora from JfL Hats, and here it is. The texture of the suede just makes me want to run my fingers across it, then smooth it back down. This is, once again, the bright pink, but all of the hats in this release are lighter colours than the usual JfL pallete. They are perfect for the ladies, but will still work great for the guys. Do go check them out – they are new releases at the main store.

As I was scrolling through my JfL Hats folder to find this photo, I realised that I have been blogging for John for almost four years. He is the designer I have blogged for the longest. He has believed in me – stuck with me – as I have slowly become a bit better at blogging. OK, I can say easily that I have become a better photographer during that time. I don’t actually have the first photo I blogged for JfL – those images were stored on a back up hard drive that sadly failed – but the images I have go back to October of 2013. And I know I was blogging for JfL Hats for a few months before that. Looking through those images, I smiled, I cringed and laughed out loud at my efforts.

All in all, it was a lovely recollection.

1 Retreat sm

Creating a place of retreat can be elaborate or as simple as finding a quiet spot where you can simply reflect and recharge. It can be in a garden, on a mountaintop or simply inside your mind. It’s your choice – whatever makes sense to you.

I have created this retreat not just within a garden, but with beautiful fall roses around me. You can win them at the September round of The Chapter Four in the gacha machine by [ keke ]. There are 10 commons and one rare, all equally as lovely as each other. Dressing for the occasion also enhances the experience. You can find the dress by Salt & Pepper at We < 3 Roleplay and the shoes by Apple May Designs on Marketplace.

Find your special retreat; find your own peace.
