Waiting for the band to start

For a number of years, I’ve enjoyed gigging on my own. Solo. Yes – a woman on her own doing something for herself that she enjoys. You would not believe the number of people who look at me surprised when I tell them this. (I also go to the cinema on my own – I know, what a *weirdo*). I realised a number of years back that if I spent my life waiting for other people to join me in activities I enjoyed doing that’s all I’d spend my life doing….waiting. I got bored of waiting, so I started living. As with all things in life, you have to be sensible and take precautions. No, I don’t mean pepper spray but trust your gut instinct and avoid any strange looking people who are staring at you (that’s another story for another day). So, if you ever spot me about, having a drink and waiting for the band to start, say hi. We might have some amazing stories to share 🙂

Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤

Bicycle

I initially started with a different title to this post “The Village Bicycle” and then thought…..ohhhh no Wynn, you’re going to get yourself into all sorts of a stew with that! However, meet Doris, my village bike! She’s very sturdy and likes a lot of outdoor activity. The flowers are a perfect touch, don’t you think? 😀

The pose set I’m using today does come with a car prop, but I’m in a 50s Spring mood, so Doris my bike it is. However, if you take a trip to TWE12VE, the set does not disappoint. It’s created by Lush Poses and the links are below. I’m wearing some limited time offers too, so be quick if you like them. I particularly love this outfit by Belle Epoque as the bag is a perfect accessory and comes built into the set. No modding – thank god! I am still a 12 year old noob, if I edit too quick, it’s likely to end up across a sim. I’m always on the look out for rigged accessories because that takes the worry away.

Candy?

I spent a little time wandering through Kustom9 this week, picking up some of the brilliant group gifts they have available for their anniversary celebrations. Honestly, we’ve been spoiled with some of the gifts available. I can say this as I nom on my teddy candy and consider plans for world domination. After all, evil needs candy too.

Follow your dreams.

That’s what all the motivational posters usually say, isn’t it? In fact my top also carries the message (if you cam in reeeally closely – don’t stare at my boobs m’kay). However, some days my dreams may be rather big; other days they’re much smaller. Today my dream is to lose myself in a bag of carbs and chill the day away. Kitty’s dream *apparently* is to play with the cherry atop what was a glorious ice cream. Who am I to judge?

*Le Sigh*

Don’t you just hate waiting? Some people take pleasure in the anticipation. They savour that moment just before *it* happens. Whatever *it* is supposed to be. I’m not one of those people! It’s been commented before that I can be patient, but more often than not, I’m just impatient. Lol. I want it and I want it now! So, sitting and waiting for a train to arrive is not my idea of fun. Sometimes the destination is much more fun than the journey itself.

Boy, Bye.

Ohhh I have so many little treats to tell you about today, but you need to be super speedy quick if you want to grab them all. Ready? Come with me 😀

SL16B is in full swing and there are 4 amazing sims packed with SL’s biggest names with a bunch of special offers and free gifts. Needless to say, the sims are busy but you have until the 8th July to check out the sales and pick up the amazing free gifts on offer. Huge thanks to the Designers for their generosity. I want to draw your attention to my sneakers – they’re on offer at the event, but ALSO L & B Swear group join is reduced to 25L at the event too. If you then go back to the mainstore, there are a bunch of group gifts available, including exclusive add on huds for items. I’m wearing the suede add on hud for the sneakers and love em ❤

ChicChica has been generous once again and has this fab holdable lemonade available as a free gift until the 30th June. It’s such a cute little accessory and perfect for summer evenings. It does beg the question “why are you in jeans and a sweater in Summer, Wynn?” ….which leads me on to my jeans, funnily enough! Also on offer until the end of the month, L & B Swear has these fab jeans and belt on limited discount at Flourish Sales Studio. I love the side ribbon detail and each pack comes with a ribbon colour change hud. So depending on your mood, you can switch it up…or down…or sideways.

Finally, my cute kitty pose stems from a Facebook appeal and I’m so happy to see that Image Essentials have taken up the challenge and NAILED it. Last week, a blogger on facebook put the question out to the internet “would someone design a crazy cat lady pose set” and literally a few days later, this set was born. It is a gacha mainstore release and it’s fab to see more mainstore releases. Another brilliant thing is if you join the Image Essentials group (free), all group members get one free go on the gacha machine….and this includes EVERY machine in the gacha room. What a brilliant gift for group members?! Love the idea and gives you a chance to have a play about with lots of new poses you may not have previously considered.

Ok, that’s me done for this miserable looking Wednesday. I’m off back to RL and I hope today will be a less stressful one than the previous two. Make sure you pick up your items before they go at the end of the month. Enjoy your day, lovely people, and be kind to each other ❤
