I Am What I Am

  There’s been on much chatter this week on social media about the relationship between bloggers and designers and also the requirements for blogging for each store. I’ve kept reasonably quiet on most of the posts, not because I don’t agree or I do but because there will always be someone who does or doesn’t…

The Car Park Attendant?

I have a funeral to go to today and I don’t know what to wear. ¬†Usually it’s simple right? Wear black…well in real life that’s easy for me because pretty much everything I wear is black. But, the instructions for the funeral say wear a ‘touch of colour’. Now I’m wondering how much a touch…

Do Blondes Have Their Fun But Brunettes Do it Better?

I may swap my hair style several times a day but I do tend to stick with a hair colour in SL for years, even if i do swap it out now and again for a particular look in photos etc I always go back to the same colour. I had a very long Brunette…

The Pumpkin Patch is back

I sometimes think the song ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ should really be about Autumn rather than Christmas. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy Christmas AT Christmas I just hate all the build up to it and the stress. Once the day is here I enjoy it, even if it’s a…

TaKe Heart Sim Awakens

It’s finally time to awaken the dream and open TaKe Heart! We have worked tirelessly this week to get the sim ready for the opening and we can but hope that you enjoy the space as much as we do. TaKe Heart is owned by me and one of my closest and dearest friends Spazz…

Knowing Me, Knowing You…uhuh!

I’m fairly confident that my real personality comes across to people that know me. I certainly hope so because I do kinda like the person that I am. I’m not perfect, none of us are but I think I’m generally a nice person. I like to support other people and see them flourish and I…

Friends That Inspire Me

The ways that we are inspired by others can be in such small, but nevertheless meaningful ways or in life-changing ways. The hair I’m wearing today I saw on several blogs and was inspired to go and buy it. A small thing in the big picture of life but those bloggers and the designer made…

Bring It On

Have you noticed how people who say ‘I don’t do drama’, especially on their profiles in Second Life are always the people that live and breathe for it. Now we all have a bit of drama come our way from time to time and most people will try and minimise the impact, keep their head…

Hello? Can you Hear Me?

To map or not to map. I was looking through my friends list to send some notecards out and as I was working my way down the list I was quite surprised at a lot of people, contacts, friends that had given me map rights. ¬†For anyone that hasn’t used it map rights is the…

Beep Beep n Beep Beep Yeah!

There’s been an incident this week of someone passing off, or seemingly attempting to pass off, someone else’s photographs as their own work by re-posting pictures to flickr under their own name. For some reason the people that do this pick on the photographers whose work and style of photography is very easily noticeable and…

Black and Gold

I have always loved taking photos in Second Life long before I was a blogger. Photography always came first and taking photos out in the ‘wilds’ of SL which is why you very rarely see a ‘studio’ shot from me in my blogs. I enjoy finding sims and places to pose and take photographs, then…
