When it’s hard to say no

The fine line between trying too hard and getting it just right is something I’ve been struggling with for a few weeks now…well probably longer than that but it’s become apparent to me over the last few weeks. A friend referred to me as a ‘typical overachiever’ a short while back and it’s stuck in…

Learning and Sharing as a Blogger

Since we launched the Blogger & Vlogger Network the importance of collaboration, networking and support within the blogging community has never been more clear to me. Yesterday we had Strawberry Singh come along and do a live presentation on the importance of social media and a couple of things struck me while listening to her….

Ladies & Gentlemen…wear sunscreen!

Now this blog post is supposed to be about suncream. I’m not really sure how to work suncream into a blog post in Second Life as with our every day beautiful skies in our glorious virtual world we don’t have to worry about skin burning and the dangers of UV rays. We also don’t have to…

Not a thing to wear!

If you’re anything like me you have a an inventory simply bursting to he seams with clothes, hair, shoes and other accessories and yet you stand there some days and think “I have nothing to wear.” Or you find a lovely top you want to wear and are pretty convinced you have no pants, shorts…

Bright Lights

I was so glad my colleague couldn’t see me when she called me yesterday to tell me that she had just been offered another job. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders and a huge grin spread across my face. Don’t get me wrong she’s a lovely person but she doesn’t fit the team…

World, Shut Your Mouth!

I don’t know about you but if I wasn’t blogging or doing social media marketing for other SL businesses I’m fairly sure I’d not be logging in to ‘SL Facebook’ much these days. Forget SL Secrets or The Whisperer THE top place for snidy, underhand, bitchiness IS Facebook and the majority of it is from…

Kiss a Ginger Day!

I don’t really have a huge amount to talk about today. Well, actually I do but I’m not in the mindset to formulate my thoughts into words on the subject so until I am it’s going to be a pretty unremarkable yap on a couple of things. My friend Tracy informed me that it’s Kiss…

A Minor Slip

My mother was an amazing ice skater and whilst I can roller skate I have yet to master walking on ice let alone skating on it. My mum was a graceful lady and I may have taken after in looks, eye colour and body shape (I can’t even blame the big bewbs on my inability…

In a League of its Own

I’m putting together a DJ set for later today right now and I’m being hampered by a song that totally doesn’t fit the set but won’t get the hell out of my head. It’s Corinne Bailey Rae’s ‘Put Your Records On’ .  It’s a pretty ‘feel good’ tune and maybe that’s why it’s stuck in…

Oasis Dreamer

I’ve never been very good at getting things ‘off my chest’. I’ve often kept thoughts and feelings bottled up inside me because I didn’t want to encumber anyone else with my negativity or because I’ve been worried about the reaction. I’m very capable of letting my mind think of the very worst case scenario and…

No Time for Fairweather Friends

I adore my close girl friends circle. Now, I’ve been in SL a long time…coming up on 10 years in November and SL friendships have come and gone for lots of different reasons. My close friends circle have all been round the block a few times too….none of us are newbies when it comes to…
