Everyone is Beautiful to Someone

It’s Friday and I’m going to try and put a positive thing on a difficult subject. Body shaming. Now, in Second Life terms I’ve been guilty of this to the point where I’ve laughed with my friends, in private, at the size or shape of another avatar. I don’t personally get why someone wants to…

My Sadybutt is NSFW

If you know her, you know she’s not safe for work! I’ve talked before about my inner circle – it’s very small and at the very centre of it is Sady (Sadystika)…or as I call her Sadybutt. So, when I heard that Phedora were releasing a set including panties called Sadystika it was my first…

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…

There are places I remember

I’ve been a little quiet over the last few days for a number of reasons. SL going down as I was about to do some work, RL needing to drive around the country trying to find a plumbing part so my en suite bathroom would work again, and watching a lot of the news from…

The Glamour Sauce!

Someone asked me the other day why my blog is called The Glamour Sauce, and how I came up with the name. Although my blog has been on WordPress now for just over two years I had a blog for about a year on blogspot. Please don’t go look for it – it was awful….

Working Together

On Saturday, along with my friend, fellow blogger and co-worker, Divos, I gave a presentation at the Blogger & Vlogger Network on collaborating with other bloggers. I have to admit, when we both agreed to do this I wasn’t sure how we could fill an hour on the subject. Surprisingly, once we started to talk…

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

Some, in fact most, people don’t like conflict. The majority of us don’t court controversy. However, a lot of us, if need be, will stand up for our views and opinions if necessary. We all have to face situations in our real lives, and Second Lives, that we know will bring us into conflict because…

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

I’m not going to be writing a huge amount today. ¬†As some of you know from previous posts my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last year and hasn’t responded very well to the treatments she’s had so far. Today is surgery day…she’s having a section of her bowel removed. It’s a fairly common operation…

Work Hard, Play Harder

Back in the 70’s, and 80’s I think, Mars used the slogan ‘a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play’ in the UK and some other countries too I believe. It’s become one of the most famous advertising slogans and is still remembered today. Several years after they stopped using it a study…

In it to win it!

It’s an informational post from me today rather than a random delve into my thoughts! I wanted to share with you a couple of photo contests that are going on right now. First up is the FaMESHed 5th Anniversary Contest. The prizes are crazy…and unlike most things in SL I mean crazy in a good…

The Road Less Traveled

The main reason I started blogging a couple of years ago was as an outlet for a lot of difficult to deal with emotions that I couldn’t express to anyone in Second Life. I recognised that I needed to process them somehow and my blog became an outlet. I’m fast approaching the 2 year mark…

On my Shopping list…

Although it’s a fairly well known quirk of mine to love Mondays…I do love a Friday too. As I use Monday to look forward to what can be achieved in the week ahead, Friday is the day when you look back and give yourself a pat on the back for everything you completed and achieved….
