Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage. It commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is also known as Battle of Puebla Day.

It’s a day of celebration and in honour I managed to consult Mr Google to understand what it is.

I have only discovered this day via Second Life as it isn’t something celebrated here in the U.K. or Australia when I was growing up.

I thought it remiss of me to blog a top for the occasion if I didn’t at least know what the occasion was about.

Job done. I’m off to eat my brekky now.

Happy Cinco de Maya day.

Sunshine and smiles

Sunshine and smiles

There isn’t any! Sun that is. Well it’s slowly arriving.

Recently I decided to pay for Tinder 1 month access. Just so for once I could see who actually liked me. If anyone at all.

Well there is a huge list I won’t lie. I’m currently drawing crowds to my profile.

Crowds of no matches to be honest. A few have been masterful scammers. They all work on oil rigs offshore or are military and unfortunately their spouses dead and they’re looking for mama. Sugar mama!!! All ask if you have Kik or what’s app straight at the bat.

All want to know what work you do or if you have a son, does he live with you.

Well I’m bantering away and I’m a stock market broker and own my own businesses and retired at 42!

Sugar mama I am not. The most they’ll get from me is a cuppa tea and a sandwich.

At my age the search for love is a rather bumpy road to travel.

But………..

Shopping time

Shopping time

In reality I’m doing a SHEIN shop in a few moments. I really am going to treat myself big time.

There’s a link below the credits of this outfit and you can see how cool their clothes are.

My Sunday is just relaxed and chilled. Had hoped to catch up with a friend this weekend but that went to pan. Then hoped to be sitting in the sunshine reading, that too went to pan!! It’s windy and cool and not ideal. So it all went to pan.

Lazy day it is inside. I’ve faffed around the flat with odd bits of housework and just editing something I’m writing. It’s a book in progress yes and may take me a hundred years at the rate I’m going!!!

It’s a bio of my life and will not be for the faint of heart as my life in reality was extremely turbulent in the earlier years of my childhood.

Anyhow todays outfit you can find at the Saturday sale in a few colours. I’m wearing part of the mega pack hud in this photo. Lovely outfit go check it out.

Floating out there

Floating out there

Where do I begin!!!! I really don’t know. Other than to say 2021 may also personally for me a bit of a bittersweet year. Already it’s kind of been a sarcastic comedy of sorts.

I touched not so long ago in one of my YouTube coffee blogs that there were issues with my hair. Since Covid hit I noticed a patch of my hair thinning and disappearing. Just at the very time I was accepted as a curly girl ambassador for Boucleme hair products. Incredibly bad timing.

All the hair has disappeared from my arms and legs . All this since lockdown.

Yes I considered it may be due to high stress but today I was seen by a consultant who has examined my records and my scalp etc. Verdict is female pattern baldness.

So it could stay as it is now or gradually get worse. Either way it’s a huge knock to my soul as what is most noticed about me has always been my curly hair.

But, I’m not prepared to give into the internal tears inside me. After all it’s not killing me. It just means one day I may be buzz cutting it all off.

Until then I shall crack on with a smile and learn to accept that I’m still fortunate and need to get a grip. There are damn sight worse things in life.

I still have minge hair, albeit it looks like a ninja head now!

I had a round today

I had a round today

It’s well past 9 on here at night in the U.K. and I’m pretty shattered. Today was spent completely moving the whole living room around.

Honestly the dust and toot that collects under a sofa is shocking! It’s a rather huge old corner leather sofa. Never been moved since it arrived in 2013!

Honestly I think we gave ourselves hernias doing it. But the flip side the whole living spaces feels so much nicer with a new seating perspective.

Amazing how doing something different in rearranging your home space can feel so uplifting.

I credit it to feeling like a game of tennis. You go hell for leather doing the deed and once done you feel really rejuvenated.

My Sunday

My Sunday

I love Sunday’s, I just wish they lasted longer than they do.

It’s probably the only day in the week I feel relaxed for even a brief moment. Then comes Sunday evening and I start to start winding up ready for another week.

Is anyone else like this?

If I think about it, is it because of current lives we are living now or the fact that I’m a miserable soul?

I’m a miserable soul if I’m alone in this feeling. But I doubt it.

All of us normal average working souls share this because we are not living our best lives.

My best life is certainly far from here back in Australia, being creative and feeling the sun each day.

My children and close friends all nearby and never a worry about work and it’s politics.

But then there is reality and I’m not rich and can’t just whisk everyone to where I want to be.

So Sunday evening comes and I start that heavy feeling of monotony again waiting for Friday.

In the meanwhile I think in my virtual life I’m looking rather savvy here and really ready for a spring encounter.

What you think? An afternoon tea maybe with scones and cream? P

The new Club groove dances from Paragon Dance Animations are so snappy to me. I wanted to mix it up and show you a different perspective rather than hip hop and RNB as frankly that’s just so predictable.

So how about punk and cyber feels?

I’ve blended Paragon and the Cyber fair to bring you this video.

All info down below after the video. I hope you enjoy.

The social influencer

The social influencer

During the Pandemic the one thing that has made me chuckle are the social influencers. You know the ones who are caught out doing everything we mere mortals are told we cannot do.

Yet they use their platforms during this time to still show us they’re on their “essential” work trips. I’ve sat back and thought to myself they really are ripe for the mockery. I think in the last year we all have really learnt more about life etc to see a lot more clearly.

The influencers have a misjudged idea that the general public “need” to see them having a good time. I would actually say they’re deaf to what their followers need and want. Hence there has been incredible negative reactions to many of them recently.

I wanted to create a new character and here she is Delores the social influencer. Today she is just being the current thoughtless influencer.

Don’t worry her character has more to her that will develop. As will my voice as I do her more often. Getting into character can be hard when in my head I start becoming all of them. Essentially they all link to me, Liz. So I guess that makes sense.

Hanging out in the wild

Hanging out in the wild

I’m just in bed rapping this blog before I crash on my pillow and fade into sleepy bliss.

Earlier I was filming at a furry place and can I just say I have so got a thing for sassy fur men!!! Make of that what you will but it’s seriously interesting to me the whole concept and how the male avatars look.

It’s something I’d love to learn about and understand the whole lifestyle role play etc.

Honestly I wasn’t at all quiet while filming earlier. In public chat I’m just stating how amazing they look and fascinated that one guy was so adorable I wanted to stroke his head whilst at the same time I’m thinking phwoar that’s a more manly man than I’ve seen in ages.

Though I embarrassed myself a tad when I asked if I could go back another time to hang out and I said if I can’t be a furry maybe I’ll go as Aunty VaGina and wear a fur coat!!

Seriously when god was handing out tact he skipped past me I’m sure. I’ve never felt so embarrassed at saying such a stupid thing. I seriously wasn’t even thinking and then the penny dropped.

At least they all were quite sweet and I’m hopefully exonerated for that moment.

Well I’ve had my invite for the Vaccine. Strangely I feel like it’s a history making moment.

Not that I am important to historical noting but because it’s that feeling that in years from now what is debated amongst people will become the norm.

I prefer to look at it like those wordings “one small step for us, one giant leap for everyone”.

(Note my politically correct version before someone decides to have a keyboard moment! )

I personally am grateful that there is a vaccine and it’s out there. There’s no ultimate guarantees but at least it’s a start. Much like the flu vaccine. It won’t get rid of the damn pesky virus, but perhaps make its existence less taxing on our bodies.

I work with a few people who are anti vaxxers and what we fondly call Covid idiots.

You know the ones, just because no one they personally know has been affected, then clearly it doesn’t exist mindset.

It’s difficult having conversations on the subject because of this and it does make me feel that our world is divided and living in parallels.

I’ve said this before much like the Mandela effect, there is this Covid effect. We’re living in the Matrix!!!

Now here I’m living in the Matrix and my virtual person is me!!!
