We’re on a Road to Nowhere

Or are we on a road to something else entirely? I made a couple of new friends this weekend in Second Life and it got me thinking about those important first IM’s. I, like many people, nearly always ignore just ‘hi’ or ‘hey’ ims but if a first IM intrigues me or asks a question…

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People – A Facebook Story

  Facebook is a powerful tool for promotion for businesses, bloggers, personalities…you name it Facebook can be used to help promote it. Used incorrectly it can have quite the opposite effect than that which the user initially intended. A lot of us refer to the facebook we use with our second life avatars as ‘SL…

Got Time for a Natter at Home & Garden Expo?

At the weekend I co-hosted my first Prim Perfect Discussion at the Home and Garden Expo for Relay for Life with Saffia Widdershins.

Every Other Freckle

I gave myself a mini-makeover this week and after several months changed my skin and appliers. It’s not a massive change, in my mind, but I’ve been wanting to find an applier for my Catwa head from The Skinnery that I felt worked for me for some time.  I’ve worn light freckles for some time…

Keeping Busy and Making Time

Ever heard the phrase “if you want something done ask a busy person”? I remember hearing that phrase when I was younger and not truly understanding what it meant. Recently my already busy second life has taken on a whole new level of busy and I’m loving every minute of it!!! I took some decisions…

I’m Just One of One Billion Rising

In the early hours of tomorrow morning SL time I will be taking to the stage at One Billion Rising to DJ for two hours. 2am to 4am slt. One Billion Rising is an event I have been aware of for the last few years thanks to Second Life. In all honesty I probably wouldn’t…

The Feathered Friends That Let you Fly

Ah, there’s a bit of a play on words there because ‘birds’ is a colloquial term used in the UK for females. I have many talented, beautiful and amazing women in my SL and I feel extremely blessed for that fact. My closest friend circle includes 4 outstanding women…Tracy Redangel, Sadystika Sabretooth, Grace Sixpence and…

Shine On Harvey Moon…shine

During the 70’s my parents followed the fashion of homebrewing. The airing cupboard was full of fermenting buckets and bottles and stuff that smelled frankly terrible. I remember thinking “they are really gonna drink this stuff at some point?????” The beer making didn’t last long but the wine making went on for longer. We used…
