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 ❤

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 😉

And here we are…it’s 2019 and three days into a new diet…and it’s failed already! I can only laugh at myself and shake my head (as I scoff some after eight mints). I have enjoyed my Christmas break so much the calories are determined to follow my hips into the New Year. Not to worry though, while in rl I’ll drag my sorry ass to the gym tomorrow, tonight I can play with sliders inworld and never worry about pixel calories.

Something sweet in your mouth?

The candy cane *obviously* you naughty little minxes! Cue an over dramatic eye roll and a little smirk, hidden behind a hand.

As we approach the end of one year and celebrate the beginning of a new one, I’ve used the quiet time to sneak around a few events that are still going on inworld. Be quick though, because there are only a couple of days left. The Imaginarium is a part sale, part gacha event that is well worth checking out. It is also organised by Gimme Gacha Productions and if you are a group member there are gifts available too.

The Trunk Show is still in full swing if you’re looking for something wedding/formal inspired (NYE gown, anyone?) for a party in the next couple of days. My nails and makeup are from the event and with nails like these….they’ll definitely leave scratch marks down anyone’s back.

Finally, I snuck over to Ricielli for their Christmas hunt this week and had a lot of fun hunting for some beautiful clothes. There is a hunt key at the store entrance, showing the body types and prizes you can find. Each box is 15L but you can buy a trans / no trans version of each, which is perfect for gifting. I love that option in a hunt, especially if I see something I want to gift to my BFF who has an Hourglass body. One for her and one for me.

On that note, I hope you all are feeling rested and ready for the new year. Like it or not, time moves forward and 2019 is gonna smack our tooshies soon enough. Until then, party on and keep sucking those candy canes 😉

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

I think the title of this post (and my newly acquired cushion) sums up my mood perfectly as I look towards the future. My previous post talked about dark times. While I’m a naturally happy person I am a terrible worrier and over thinker. The Mister and my dearest BFF’s know this well as I second guess things that anyone else would have disregarded days ago. Perhaps this should be my resolution for the New Year? I don’t know how long it’ll last but I’ll certainly try ❤️
