Surrender

Now all the shapes I know are gone
Charts and maps I’ve drawn just get me lost
And I’m falling off the edge
And you make me want to change with the look on your face
‘Cause I miss you, babe
But I can’t stay
Not one more kiss
Not one more fix
Not one more minute
One more night
So I surrender (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
This is the moment I surrender (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Even now, let it in (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Oh Lord, I surrender (I still believe, I can’t stay)
(I’m still here)
I’ll still try to keep my distance (hold on and reappear)
Keep my distance (I’m still here, I’m still here)
When I speak will you listen?
So send me back a thousand days
That first night at your old place
And tell me how it ends
I’d do it all again
For one more minute, one more night
If all that I could ever be
If all that I could ever be
Was the best ex-lover of your life

If all that I could ever be
If all that I could ever be
Was the best ex-lover of your life

Shopping Trip

I love a good shopping trip, both in RL and SL. I have to be in the mood for it, but get me going and …. well, the blood gets pumping!

Inworld I tend to shop at events, although I’m trying to get to mainstores more. In fact, if you have time today check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which has just started and runs to the 3rd February. Everything is at least 50% reduced and there’s also a 5L hunt (check out my hair, hint hint).

In RL my shopping habits have changed and I mostly shop online now. I feel sad for my local high street because I’m that shopper that should be attracted back into their shops but I enjoy the convenience of shopping online too much. The only time I’ll pop into a store is to buy jeans and trousers because, well, ladies….you all know how flipping hard it is to find a decent pair that fits!

On that note, I’m going to take advantage of my peaceful Sunday morning and get a little more shopping done. I hope you all have lovely weekends ❤

When the Mister talks fashion

It isn’t often the Mister talks fashion…willingly…with me. Usually, if I get him within spitting distance of a shop or event inworld, I get a multitude of unimpressed “pfffts” in my ear along with a few choice words. So, when I showed him this jumpsuit and chatted about matching heels (Sheba…you can’t go wrong with these little gems!) he was surprisingly chatty on the subject.

ChicModa: it’s official. The Mister likes the ruffles along the leg. The Mister likes the colour choice hud (available as a fatpack). You get a gold star. Cherish it well because these things are rarer than rocking horse poop (a choice phrase).

I also tried Powder Pack for the first time this month as it is the anniversary edition. I’m impressed with the range of options in each pack: a multitude of makeup, lashes, brows, eyes and skins. All fatpacks. We all know how much a fatpack of skins alone can cost; that’s a small fortune in itself, so to get another 11 items in the pack is a good deal to me. The other thing I like about Powder Pack is that it’s available on Marketplace and you buy for your specific mesh head type. No more ditching half the stock because it doesn’t fit, which I know has been a bugbear with clothing boxes in the past. All in all, hats off to you Powder Pack. I may well buy again in the future 🙂

I dislike January. Strongly. It never used to bother me, but I find that as I become older (and wiser) I realise that January is one of those months I just can’t wait to get through. Thankfully it always goes by quickly; that’s it’s one saving grace. I can’t wait for warmer days, more sunshine in the evenings and that general feeling of “chill” that seems to seep into my soul as I walk home on a Friday afternoon listening to my favourite tunes. Bring it on!

A lovely lady I know has recently resurrected a group inworld designed for members to chat, teleport to new places and generally have fun. A Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, if you will. I love the idea for two reasons: it’s a chance to meet people and explore new destinations in SL. I’ve been around for 11 years now (12 in February…don’t judge) and it’s very easy the older you get, to just stick with your favourite haunts and talk with the same people. I’m hoping by putting myself out more, I might discover something new and exciting this year….aaaaand then crawl back into my little hole and hide. LOL! We are creatures of habit, after all.

If you’d like to know more about the group inworld, pop me an IM. I’m always happy to chat and it’s fab to meet like minded people. Until then, be good…or if you can’t be good, be very good at the mischief you make 😉

When a glass isn’t quite enough

We go for the entire bottle and why not?! Although what always seems like a good idea the night before is never a good idea the morning after. The headaches and remorse I’ve experienced in my younger days when I made decisions like the one above. I’m remembering my 18th birthday and a warm champagne cocktail specifically. The after effects were quite….memorable.

As with all things shopping inworld, as we approach the middle of the month we are spoiled with the number of events and new releases. Hats off to the Designers; I don’t know how they do it. Lootbox is still in full flow (as my boots will attest) as well as Pose Fair, which always looks top notch. The Cosmopolitan Room has just reopened and I couldn’t help but sneak off with this necklace. I’m a sucker for rigged jewellery and this necklace comes with both maitreya rigged and unrigged options. No more fiddling with resizers going insane. People, you know what I mean! It also comes with long and short chains, so plenty of options to play with.

If you’re wondering where my photo is taken, my lovely friends Angel, Grace and Jewel own a sim called Esoteric. You can always find me lurking by the bar at the club, as photographed, during Saturday events. Heck, once in a blue moon you may even hear me DJ here….but you’ll have to pop over and find out for yourself if that blue moon has appeared 😉 Until then my lovelies, enjoy your Sunday, make peace with approaching Monday and keep it fabulous ❤

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but this post was supposed to look cute when I first started. Then, well, who knows what happened? Somewhere between the devil horns, the clamps and a bit of rum on a Friday night, my innocent little self turned into this madam! I have been falsely accused of being a Corrupter. I can assure you it’s not the case! If anything, I’m a corruptee. An Innocent led astray. After all, who can call me a corrupter when all I do is enjoy a little gin, a little knitting and some….other activities….from time to time 😉

Congratulations people, give yourselves a pat on the back. You survived the week. Yes…you gorgeous people! YOU! YOU DID IT!! ……..

This is exactly what I was thinking as I finished my working week ….ohhhh…… 7 hours ago now. This first week back has been brutal. Some would say it’s self inflicted. I prefer to think of it like ripping off a plaster: a short amount of intense pain for the long term benefit (in this case, I had two weeks off at Christmas).

Do I have any regrets? Right now…yes! lol! Will I probably do this again? Probably LOL! Who knows what this year will bring in RL, but so far in SL, there’s been a few surprises. It’s definitely going to be an interesting one!
