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…

The Treasure in the Attic

I gave myself a wee bit of a blogger challenge for this picture. I wanted to see if I could come up with an image, based on the attic theme, that solely had products from one store. The store I wanted to use was Fancy Decor…as I had some items I needed to blog them…

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…

and…Woman I think you’re Dope

Anyone who regularly reads the blog knows my titles are often song lyrics and anyone that attends my sets should be pretty well aware of the lyric that is todays title. Dope by Beware of Darkness is one of my fave songs of the last 12 months. I often dedicate to all the women at…

Everything Means Nothing

Back to work today after my week off. Even though I was unwell the whole week one thing struck me. It was something I’ve always known but this last week really brought it home. Parkinson’s Law, the adage that work expands to fit the time allowed. I looked forward to my week off for ages…
