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

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 ūüôā

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 ūüėČ

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!

Shine Bright <3

We all have a chance to shine. We choose how brightly (or dimly) we shine in life and in turn, our choices and actions cause others to shine too. I intend to shine brightly next year and I hope you do too x

Suck it!

As Wynn downed her fifth cup of eggnog she wondered what her life had become. Getting sozzled to survive the family rampage on the big day. Bedecking herself in so much acrylic that she could electrocute a family of pygmy goats….or combust if she got too close to the lantern flame. Even the home decor had become a viable form of entertainment. Wynn had a vague thought of splinters in her ass as she tumbled backwards, with the final thoughts of “I really hope the nephews didn’t video this for YouTube” as she passed out in the corner.


Winter’s Hollow opened this weekend too and runs til the end of the month. Organised by Dark Passions Events, there are a fab range of designers catering to your dark Christmas needs. There is also a hunt at the event and a lot of designers have generously put out gifts too.

Check out the store listings HERE and don’t forget to pop down for a shop.

Sunday morning

Gack! Now I have that song going through my head and I can assure you: this lady is NOT easy like Sunday morning, lol. As I created this scene, it really reminded me what Sundays are for me. I love to spend time on the couch with a mug of tea, just chilling and knitting. It’s one of my favourite ways to wind down, although some people would never guess this from the way I swear at my projects sometimes. Friends would like to believe that their gifts are made with love. Many of their gifts are often made with expletives! I suppose this is why my red cushion appeals so much; it often sums up my mood, especially as I approach the end of a project!

Yesterday, the Christmas tree went up in our home and today we will begin to wrap the gifts. I’m not a ‘Christmassy’ person by nature; I believe it’s more for children’s enjoyment than mine, but I do enjoy giving gifts at this time of year. It’s my way of saying “thank you, you’re appreciated” to those people in my life.

On that note, it’s time to get ready for the day and see what happens. I hope your Sunday is a chilled and peaceful one ‚̧
