    I am very much a shopaholic.

    I love to shop for anything and everything. My favorite thing to shop for is lingerie. I love wearing lingerie even if for a short period of time or just a few minutes when my husband notice how sexy, sensual, and sexual for him to come and pleasure me.

    Every time I see something it gets stuck in my

    head and I gotta go back and buy it. I can be weeks like this until I purchase it, and most of the time they're useless things I do not need. It sucks.

    Here Is The Proof...

    I joined this website because I thought maybe it would give me something else to entertain myself with other than shopping online. But I've been looking around for 20 minutes and I think I might take a break and head over to ebay.... so sad.
