I Get What I Want…

I Get What I Want! I wish this was some declaration of how life always turns out the way I had planned. No such luck unfortunately.  There are lots of things I want…some material, some emotional and some more altruistic and I fall woefully short most of the time in all three categories. Does that…

The Sun is Out…Must be Pimms O’Clock

It’s been a fun weekend so far and the great news is there is an extra day of it! \o/ It’s Memorial Day weekend in the states and in the UK it’s the Spring Bank Holiday. The weather was gorgeous yesterday but today is a little more overcast where I am. But the great news…

A Year Goes By – My First Year of Blogging

Wow! It’s Sunday again huh? Where did THAT week go? In fact where did that YEAR go? Today is the anniversary of 1 year of blogging on the WordPress platform. I had blogged previously on blogspot but I really didn’t take it very seriously and I was erratic to say the very least.  I initially…

Just Find the Feeling, Pass it On

I was reading on Facebook a post from a fellow blogger and photographer who was delighted to have received an offline message from someone just to let them know that they enjoyed seeing their pics on Flickr. It was a message of appreciation and thanks and obviously made their day. The person sending the message…

It’s Cozy on the Coast

My home in Second Life is somewhere that will never reject me or abandon me. It’s the place I can go to and sink into the armchair in front of the fire and feel completely at peace. The contrast of the tranquility of home and the chaos of the waves crashing against the rocks in…

Ain’t Nothing Going on But the ‘Rents

I have the parental units visiting this weekend. Oh the joy! No, really…it is a joy to see them. As I’ve written before my stepmother has Alzheimers and my father hasn’t always dealt with it well. He’s always been a man on a short fuse with a bark terrifying more scary than his bite and…

If You Were Born Without Wings, Do Nothing to Prevent Them Growing

The title of this post is a quote from Coco Chanel. It’s not always easy to avoid the things in life that clip your wings a little but how you deal with those situations and/or people will determine how quickly your wings recover and you feel ready to take flight again. Those scars and dents…

When a Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie…

I’ve tried Pizza in New York…and Chicago…and Italy. My favourite is a really simple Italian pizza that I had in Sorrento…thin base, smothered in gooey melted mozzarella, topped with roasted baby tomatoes and generously garnished with fresh arugula. I’ve tried to recreate it at home but like many holiday meals it’s not quite the same…

A Moment on the Lips, A Lifetime on the Hips

A moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips…or my personal favourite…little pickers wear bigger knickers. Exercise is hard! It’s supposed to be hard I guess but there’s so many other things that are way more fun to do right? Like…cake and cookies…wine…Second Life…and every girls favourite past time on SL….shopping! We all love…

Because You’re Worth It

I was talking to a friend at a venue yesterday and joking with him about being like a L’Oreal advert. See this friend had flowing golden locks attached to their pixel scalp. What’s unusual about that? well normally this person is a teeny tiny cute lil cat.  Seeing them in human form was unusual…seeing them…

I Don’t Care Too Much for Money cos Money Can’t Buy Me Love

So many money songs have been going through my head since I first saw this bath from BackBone as a WIP.  This was several days ago so there’s been lots of time. For those of you that don’t know BackBone is a new decor brand and the avatars behind the brand are Kiana Writer, the…

Many of you know I love good challenge and do several of the ones that Strawberry Singh sets for fellow bloggers on her blog. Berry shared a challenge yesterday from another blogger, Cajsa Lilliehook.  Firstly let’s look at why Cajsa has invented this wonderful challenge. The creator of Clawtooth is the super talented Bubbles Clawtooth….
