The Intoxicated Pirates of the Not So Caribbean
The vast ocean called and we hit the sea and headed off to the place where our hearts longed to be… white sand, rum and music filled breezes. Intoxicating! Jacques Cousteau was dead on when he said, “the sea…. once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Ah the pirates life for me!
A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.

On a recent trip to Cog & Grog Freebies, an entire shop filled with all the pirate loot you could fathom, I got a little carried away and ended up with a fleet of the most beautiful pirate ships! Cog and Grog shares all the creations used for the construction of Freeport Township of Flotsam at this tiny shop. The items are full perm, free and fun! Thanks Aley, Arcadia and Briony! If you happen to plunder their wares be sure to give some love to the tip jar!
My pirate treasures became my inspiration for the “50 Shades of Sexy” challenge this week with a very appropriate theme of “Intoxicate Me.” Not all treasure is silver and gold….. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!!
Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire wo’ld. Wherever we want to go, we’ll go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails,
that’s what a ship needs but what a ship is… what it is… is freedom.

Blacklace’s new lingerie set, Rousing, was the perfect attire for my intoxicatingly sexy self. The chocolate color gave a sense of time that I offset with an adorable vintage necklace from League that actually works! In keeping with my Cog & Grog mindset I chose a pair of Victorian granny heeled shoes from Grim Bros. (Any excuse to shop at Grim is a good excuse!) And topping it all off is hair by D!va that is absolutely perfect in every way (and free!!! wth!) Marisa is quickly becoming one of my favorite SL hair designers of all times!
Arrr Mateys! Until we meet again!!! Happy Shopping!
