Whimsy and Wonder – Dust Bunny Speed Edit

Today is a day for escapism, wonder and whimsy. It’s what Second Life is for…escaping the real world and it’s many horrors. I’m not going to focus, in this post, on my thoughts about the recent real world events and instead, hopefully, provide some lighter, happier, relief. Dust Bunny have released a new gacha set…

If it makes you happy

Life is too short to do things that make you unhappy…I think most people can agree on that point. It’s also too short to invest time in talking about things that you don’t like or make you unhappy.  There is nearly always a positive way to look at most situations…yes, even some of the most…

Time to Feel Good – Hive Speed Edit

Camping trips as a child were fraught with irritations, bad weather and arguments but I still look back on them through rose tinted glasses. I do remember the bad but I remember firstly the good times. Playing badminton, long days at the beach, running around free for hours, making new friends who you would declare…

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding – Speed Edit Vlog

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and Dead Dollz have a stunning set that comprises several different elements. I’m focussing today on the decor elements of the set for The House of Brides. It’s a delightful, extensive set with lingerie, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses to wear as well as a Bridal store…

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…

I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten

I decided on the title of this post a few days ago when I took the picture and I’ve had this song stuck in my head ever since. The original of the song was by Dusty Springfield and was released the year I was born but I became aware of the song in the 80’s…

My Love Couldn’t Hold a Candle to Yours

Yesterday saw the opening of The Arcade and Fancy Decor have pulled out all the stops for their offering at this round. La Cire Cierge. This beautiful candle store gacha comes with 2 RARES, one being the building which comes with a colour change hud to alter the colour of the shop facade, and the…

Lazy Weekend

I had to giggle at the name of the post which is named after the skybox and gacha I’m using for the photograph today.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have no idea how to be lazy in SL! I have a bit of a running joke going with my friend Jase, who is…

It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like….

The radio at work is starting to ramp up the number of Christmas songs it plays per day. When I was growing up, and probably on through my 20’s,  the rush to be Christmas number 1 in the UK was huge news. There would be betting odds with all the bookies giving odds on whether…

Aiming for the Perfect Tree

I’ve been super busy this weekend and one of my top priorities has been completing the ‘winterisation’ of my public sim TaKe Heart. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I much prefer Spring or Autumn as seasons but there’s something about winter that, ironically, brings a warmth to the soul.  I wasn’t sure…

Roman Holiday

Thanksgiving is over (though I’m a Brit so it never really started for me) and Black Friday marked a pretty crazy day for shopping and events in SL.  Tannenbaum by Prism Events opened it’s doors yesterday too and many of us had been waiting for this event to open pretty much since the day it…

Time Passes. Listen. Time Passes

With everything going on in the world it’s a joy to have a safe haven in SL. Somewhere that is peaceful and quiet and a million miles away from the fears and stress of real life. This is a new area that I’ve put together on my sim TaKe Heart which is hopefully just that…
