Carolling

Wynn wasn’t a natural singer, but she always gave things a good try. As she belted out the carols that night, she found herself swapping out the duller words for more *fruity* options, some of which caused the owners of the beautiful house behind her to blush. Wondering whether people were going for a coffee break, she found herself slowly abandoned by her friends and the lights in the house switched off. “Oh well” she thought. “Might as well sing another one and see if they prefer that!”

Coffee in my mug?

Are we sure there’s *just* coffee in my mug this morning? Who knows, but given the rosy cheeks (on my face, you naughty naughty people) and the fact that my butt is hanging out (albeit in very cute panties), we might have cause to suspect the mug is right. There’s a little more than coffee in my mug this morning 😉 No wonder the drink is smiling at me!

A Question of Luck

I’m a sucker for good quality clothing, hair and shoes in SL. I’m also a sucker for a bargain. A good quality freebie in SL….even better! When I have free time inworld, I love to find a good lucky board, hang out with like minded people and see what comes my way. Don’t be fooled though, it isn’t all giggles and chilled conversation. If a board has a wildcard (?) feature enabled, I’ve seen people go from smiley to ultra competitive in the time it  takes to blink. But for me, that’s part of the experience and the fun of hanging around lucky boards. You never quite know what you’re going to get.

When nookie doesn’t mean *nookie*

Yesterday I posted what I thought was an innocuous title on the blog, which referred to the term “nookie”. I underestimated how many people would pick up on that….aaaaaand how my definition of a word isn’t necessarily the ‘actual’ definition of the word! Nookie to me means cuddles. It means cuddling up with someone special, kisses, some touches but most importantly it’s shared time together. Apparently, to the rest of the world it means doin’ the dirty. Hmm. Well, they say you learn something new every day!

It led my group of friends on to thinking about other terms that mean something different to what’s intended. For example…netflix and chill. Yes. I am one of the minority that literally means “I want to watch netflix on the couch, in my pjs with you, in a blanket fort and chill” when I say netflix and chill. Not doin’ the dirty.

Wouldn’t life just be easier if we all said what we meant?

Dream Weaver

Sometimes certain songs stick in my mind, remind me of moments or feelings. This one reminds me of sleepy happy cuddle moments when my special someone can just make everything…..better.

“I’ve just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind”

3rd April 2017

I’m a self confessed shoe addict. There, I just said it *winks*. Although, for anyone who knows me, they knew that already. Every so often I make the mistake of wearing my entire shoe folder and…well….best make a cup of tea and strap myself in….because it’s a painful experience!

Apple May Designs announced their group only lucky boards had been swapped out last Thursday for….you guessed it…..shoes *grins*. Being the shoe addict we know now I am….I dutifully went there AND HAVE SPENT THE LAST FOUR DAYS LIVING THERE to win these beauties. Am I mad? Probably? Could I have just spent the money and bought them? Probably. BUT, there’s something satisfying about winning them and knowing “you’re mine now, bitches!”

My dress is also a group gift from Apple May Designs; a perfect match, which also satisfies me. Finish it off with hair from Exile (50% sale on ALL hair for a limited time – hurry!) and I’m ready to head out for the night and enjoy one of my favourite activities….music.

 

Hair: Exile / In These Shoes? Naturals / 125L (such an appropriate name considering the theme of this blog post!)

Dress: Apple May Designs / Aiko – Lilac / group gift (25L join fee). There is also a blue version available.

Heels: Apple May Designs / Ballerina Heels – Rainbow  Pink / group lucky board (25L join fee). There is also a green pair available!

 

The venue? Toby’s Juke Joint Blues Club….because I love sitting back and letting it wash through me.
