Love, I Get So Lost Sometimes

I’m not gonna lie…this week has been tough on my emotions and my patience…and Lord knows I didn’t have a whole heap of the latter in the first place! I talked a few weeks ago about the shocking news that a cousin of mine had passed very suddenly in Egypt. She was buried the next…

I Should Cocoa!

  It’s another busy weekend in real life for me with family events and functions when all I really want to do is curl up in front of my SL fire and enjoy the winter season in Second Life. I am so much more of an autumn and winter person in both lives it’s untrue….

Life in a Bauble

I tend to live my life in a bubble of sorts and it seems from time to time that my perception of myself is way off from other peoples perception of me. I’m not saying that’s always a bad thing as has been proved this week with random compliments while out shopping to being invited…

Are Rez Days Important Anymore?

Tuesday was the rez day of my gorgeous friend Sady and we had a wicked time. She’s had a pretty shitty year in RL and I wanted to make sure that she knew she had people around her in SL that value, love and appreciate her. She happened to mention at my set on Sunday…

SLEtiquette – Why is it so hard for some people to grasp?

Anyone that knows me knows this is a subject that I can bang on about ad infinitum and I’ll try not to do that to you today. I also don’t want this to come across as ‘newbie’ bashing because while a lot of the behaviour I’m going to cover is often seen by newbies to…

As One Door Closes…

It’s the final day of 6th Republic and it will be a whole 6 months before it opens it’s doors again. Anyone who has attended the event knows that it has been truly spectacular, with the best names in home decor all participating and going out of their way to bring a mix of beautiful…

Appreciating my SLife Surprises

There have more than a few over the last week or so which have given me so much confidence in myself. It started last week when I received, not one, but two notifications from the Avi Choice Fashion Awards to let me know that I had received nominations and had been shortlisted. The Glamour Sauce…

What a Difference a Day Makes

The things about pushing a bike up a hill for so long is the reward you get at the top of the hill. The view is amazing, the air is clearer and you get time to think and assess. You realise how small you are when surveying that view but mentally it gives you strength…

Join Me in My Neverland

I never thought that a situation contained within Second Life could change me fundamentally but it has. When I became so emotionally invested in a person, a situation and, most importantly, a belief, I didn’t realise what would happen when the rug was pulled out from under me.  I’ve spent months cocooned in my own little…

The Peace of Mind that Comes with Acceptance

I shared a post on Facebook earlier today. It said ‘You’ll save yourself a lot of heartache if you accept that some questions just don’t have answers”. As is often the case those kinds of memes get me thinking and this one was no different. Actually, I believe most questions do have answers but we…
