Indila

As we approach the end of the weekend (and the end of the month), I always consider this a time for reflection. We survived the week, people! Heck, we survived January! All the cold, the post Christmas misery; we made it through in one piece and we live to survive February too! I have no idea what the future will bring, but finding out…that’s part of the spice of life.

Make sure you use the last few days of the month to check out the Gothic Garage Sale, which is in it’s final days too. There are a mix of heavily reduced sale items, 5L hunt items and exclusives available to browse and purchase. A perfect way to end the week, in my opinion, with a little shopping ūüôā

Music is Food for the Soul

This is something I feel very strongly about. It’s why every so often, I’ll post lyrics because I feel they say more than what I could type here. Lyrics can capture a mood – joy, love, despair, anger. It doesn’t matter the tune; all that matters is that the beat resonates. Feel it, embrace it and use it to empower you.

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 ‚̧

Fun and Games

“It’s All Fun and Games until Monday Comes and

You have to Put Your Bra Back On.”

That is probably the closest to my RL I’ve ever found in a quote, ever. Sigh. Until then, we have this weekend to enjoy and as always, there is plenty of fun on the grid to make the most of.¬†Muggleborn have this fab lounge wear set at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair this month. Perfect for the hot weather and not an underwire in sight. Also, there are still a few days left of the Gothic Garage Sale, which ends on the 8th August. If you like your fashion dark, moody and gothic, this is the place to grab some fantastic sale items and hunt prizes. Once you’ve finished at both events, I suggest parking yourself in front of a fan and falling asleep until Monday arrives…..or until the next event opens ūüėČ

Luna

There’s talk of a blood moon in the UK tonight. As I sit here and hear the thunder outside while my body screams for cool air, the only moon I think I’ll be seeing are the phases on the necklace I’m wearing. Until then, I’ll hide in the shadows and pray for more rain.

Throw of the Dice

Hooray for the weekend! I’ve had one of those weeks where the hours drag but the days fly. I was on a half day at work yesterday and had the luxury of some quiet time to myself. A perfect opportunity to shop (in SL), knit and watch some Van Helsing on Netflix (in RL). Last night I went to a rock gig in London and had a blast. The energy was infectious!

Sadly, the Gothic Garage Sale comes to an end soon (6th February), so if you haven’t checked out the event or the hunt…there’s still time! I’m wearing these fun heels from [QE] Designs, which are discounted at the event. The hud contains a bunch of colours, but I’ve gone for classic black today.

RIOT have also newly released these fabulous unisex chaps in the store (which are a perfect addition to my heels). There is a huge selection of male and female bodies that these chaps will fit, and they come with a ‘flat’ and ‘bulge’ panty option. Trust me, the way these pants hug my butt….you guys wanna check this out, even if it’s just perving a demo for a weekend (and then buying!)

Finally, the dice that I’m perched on are actually an animated pair, which is also a new release from Madpea. These love dice come in both PG and Adult versions and will come back with lots of fun (sexy) options when you click to play. The only thing I would say, is don’t do what I did….rez a perfect photo and then click the dice…..because it took me a little while to get my picture back to how I wanted it >.< Blogger fail lol. On a plus though, the Boss owes my navel a massage. Woot!
