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 ❤

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!

Don’t threaten me with a good time.

I am tired. Incredibly tired. As one of my managers at work told me….well, that’ll teach you to plan two weeks off and come back to three heavy workload days on the trot. Yes, she’s right. Yes, I’m exhausted. No, I don’t need reminding. My Christmas break seems so long ago now. I just want to sleep some more. So if one more person attempts some humour about my packed week today I may very well use this knife on them…and then go home for a nap…zzzzzzz

Festive Fiesta

So, even though Christmas is now 24 days away and I have so many festive goodies to share with you, this outfit makes me fee quite Spanish! Perhaps All that’s missing is a glass of something full bodied and red to complete my mood.

Anyways, as the first of the month commences, we have a bunch of fantastic hunts and events on to enjoy! Firstly, Sn@tch has swapped out their 7seas Fishing set and my hair and accessory are two of the prizes. You don’t need to bait the rod to win any of the prizes; simply cast off and win some festively themed prizes.

The Annex has it’s annual Advent Calendar again for group members, which starts TODAY! If you’re a group member you can pick up a daily gift at the store. You can also pop back the following day and purchase the item for 25L, so you don’t miss out. Psst, don’t tell anyone but here’s the prize key for you:

THE ANNEX ADVENT CALENDAR KEY

The Snowbound Hunt starts today and until the 12th December you can pick up a TON of prizes from over 60 designers. Prizes are priced between 0-25L and I suggest you check out their FACEBOOK PAGE for the prize keys. Boutique #187 has these fab earrings as a hunt prize; there is a gold and silver version to pick from.

Finally, I wanted to sneak in a mention about the projector set I used to take this photo with. Usually, I’m surgically attached to my LumiPro but I enjoyed playing with Salacity’s Projector pack to take this photo. There are lots of options and the full pack is reasonably priced (if I do say so myself!) I used the soft sidebox today but the complete pack looks like this:

All that’s left for me to say is…Onwards people! There’s mischief and f*ckery to spread 😀

Summertime Vibes

If you’re anywhere near me geographically, we’re well and truly into our summertime. I’ve even spotted a couple of hosepipe bans on the horizon! How very shocking. How typically British lol! At least in my pixel land I can enjoy my summertime vibes all year round and scoff cake without piling on any pounds! Yay!

Kiss Kiss

I’m in a very pink and girly mood today, which is a surprise considering it’s a Monday! Usually I stagger through the day and survive. Actually, that’s the perfect word to describe a Monday: Survival. But today, it’ll be Kiss Kiss because that’s the mood I’m in 😉

Midsummer Enchantment and the Vintage Fair are still in full swing so there’s plenty of opportunity for shopping. I couldn’t resist these pretty ruffles either, which just add to my girly mood today. We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but today…definitely pink!

Concrete Jungle

I had such fantastic plans for this afternoon. I truly did. I had the time booked off work and a whole list of things to do. I was going to go to the movies, a little window shopping, a quick jog and perhaps some reading. Some proper “me” time in the sunshine. Instead….I came home, watched some telly (The Handmaid’s Tale has finally come to the UK!), ate some bacon flavoured crisps (trying to wash the taste of it out now) and napped too long. I *think* RL came home from work and asked if I wanted to go to the gym with him. I *think* I may have told him to go somewhere….I can’t remember. Ahh well, it’ll be a while before I get another afternoon off to myself again. Back to the grindstone.
