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 🙂

Naughty Nautical!

I’m definitely in a nautical mood today….or is it a naughty one? This month I feel like straying away from bikinis and having fun with this Parisienne, Monaco chic. Although, having now said that I’ll probably be wearing bikinis for the rest of the month! If you have spare time, check out the Ahoy Hunt! Organised by Ghee, there are 40 prizes hidden by 7 stores on the Ghee sim, which you can find for 10L apiece. All good fun and lots of gorgeous items to pick up. All landmarks are given below. Make sure you grab an ice cream before it melts away too. On that note, it’s time for me to disappear. I’ll see you all soon, I’m sure x

The Call of the Wine

Not quite the Call of the Wild, but some days it’s close enough! After all, who can deny the lure of the claret bottles? The cool liquid contained within sings such a song of seduction, especially on a Saturday night. We all end up succumbing to it’s siren call, one way or another 😉

Harper

These jeans. I won’t lie. I think I’m in love. Whether regular or distressed, long or standard length, they cover all my requirements. I can dress them with a sweater (as above) or with something slinky and they still look lush. Often when I wear jeans, I like to go casual and this hair/heels combo just works for my mood today. Add a little gloss and perfume, and we’re good to go. Even if it means at the end of the night, I’m dancing on the bar 😉

Music is food for the soul

I love music. Listening to it on my walk to work, in the car; if there isn’t anything to watch on tv I’ll pop a music channel on and knit to my heat’s content. It’s an integral part of my daily life. I adore attending live music events and am signed up to a bunch of newsletters. If I see a band I like the look of…that’s it. I’m there. I’ve been going to gigs by myself for years and I love the freedom that comes with it. It’s my experience, it’s my way of connecting with other like minded people and sharing something…tribal…with them. It touches my soul and nourishes it.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been DJing at one of my favourite clubs in SL, the Twisted Cork. It’s been baby steps so far but what excites me is the prospect of sharing something I love dearly with like minded people. It also gives the Boss a break from my incessant IMs asking for song requests. Now he can just tell me “play it yourself” and I can! He’s been my mentor through this experience and I’m enjoying learning a new craft. He jokes that they’ve ‘created a monster’ and maybe they’re right. But, somehow I don’t think so 🙂

If you’re ever at a loose end, come listen for yourself: Tuesdays 1-2.30PM SLT – my 90 min rock block at the Twisted Cork.

Enjoy x

Glamorous Rock n Roll

Who said rock n roll needed to be grungy, dingy and grim? Not me! I’m excited because tomorrow I’m heading into London to see one of my favourite rock bands in action. Not only am I seeing them headline, I’ve managed to grab tickets for a small acoustic set before the main gig. So think of me tomorrow at 6pm, while I scream like a fan girl and then laugh at myself for my own giddiness!
