Living for the Weekend

Oh gosh, where to start. I titled this post several days ago but right now I feel like I really am  living for this particular weekend. So, the post title became apt and appropriate without me realising.  It’s going to be a super busy weekend I have lots of plans in Second Life…most of which…

Dance Like No One is Watching

I wrote a post almost a year ago now about Shine Theory.  In a nutshell, it’s about choosing to help, support and encourage other women around you to shine rather than fighting and competing with them.  I see a lot of this theory in action on Facebook and within my close friends’ group and my…

The Value of Time

Everyone’s time has value but one thing I’ve noticed is how much others don’t always value the time of other people. Like the debate on designers making items for different bodies. I think I’m going to talk about that in more detail at some point in the future but it is one example of people…

Down, but not out

I’ve had a very peculiar week and weekend emotionally. Nothing particularly triggered it but I found myself feeling lower than I have in a long time with no good reason. However, once I was down it seemed like everything that happened just pushed me down deeper into my doldrum. Even Facebook had a ‘kick her…

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…
