The Pink Flamingo Diner

Trying to flirt with Mr Tall Dark and Handsome isn’t working too well today….although I do hope he will take me inside for a milkshake at the Pink Flamingo Diner. Yanno, he kinda reminds me of the Mister with those dark locks and the motorbike. Maybe I need to get me a little closer and check out that chiselled jawline 😉

It’s all about the heel

Ohh I *do* love a killer heel. In RL, I tend to avoid them but in SL, the higher the better. There’s no need to worry about twisted ankles or the effects of too much gin tipping you over in front of a policeman, leading to your knickers being flashed at them (a story for another day, perhaps). No, in SL we can be graceful, statuesque and frankly have pins all the way to our eyeballs (and some people do). So embrace those heels ladies, embrace them and drink more gin!

Nuptials

Last blog post I talked about Spring approaching and the positivity that comes with it. Spring always reminds me of weddings. Nuptials. I grew up near a church, so every Sunday my mornings were punctuated by bells in the distance from my room. Even now, I’ll see horse drawn wedding carriages or cars decked with ribbon and streamers as we approach warmer weather. I always smile, talk excitedly and watch. It brings back memories and I hope it creates happy memories for those special people too.

Waiting for Spring to begin

Thank goodness it’s February. I know we’re still at least a month away from warmth, but I can feel it. We’re getting through Winter and I can feel Spring on the horizon. January was a tough month for me. I won’t go into detail, but thank you to my BFF and the Mister for listening and being my sounding boards. But now, now I need Spring to begin so these Winter blues can be shaken off fully. Come on Spring – I’m ready for you ❤

Not all Weddings are a Celebration

I think we’ve all been there. Watching someone we know (and love?) walk into a situation we just know they’re going to regret. We’ve said our piece, we’ve bitten our tongue, we’ve shed tears. All that’s left is for the situation to play out and just be there afterwards. Not all unions are a celebration. Especially when we know heartbreak is around the corner.

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 🙂

The Hot Chocolate Bar

We all have those moments. Sweet tooth moments. I spent most of my working day fantasising about having a big mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows. I was determined to head out and grab one, but no…the weather was too much of a deterrent. Maybe another day.

However, I’ll definitely need something hot to keep me toasty in this little winter outfit. As my mother would say “you’ll freeze your kidneys in that outfit!” But it’s so cute, I can’t resist. Ahhh the benefits of a pixel Winter – I can still expose myself and not feel the cold. But I am now *determined* to get that hot chocolate….and a donut too….or maybe a muffin. Perhaps a cookie. Heck, all of em 😉
