Mainstoresl.com A new shopping resource for SL Residents

I’ve just launched a new website called mainstoresl.com and wanted to take a few minutes to let you know about it in more detail. When I first started blogging I wrote a regular feature called Mainstore Monday, where I visited a main store and wrote a blog post about it. Now, I love shopping events…I’m…

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…

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…

Lost Weekend

I’m sure we all say that on the first day of the week? Where did that weekend go? Well, mine was busy in both worlds but, for those of you that have been following the situation with my daughter, the great news of the weekend was that she was allowed to come home on Sunday!…

Someone watching over me

This may sound from the first paragraph that it’s going to be a depressing post…it’s really not, bear with me…there is light. Two major life events happened for me in a matter of days in the first week of October, 1991. On the Monday I found out I was pregnant and on the Sunday, just…

Something Old, Something New – A Blogger Challenge?

I’m a bit of a hoarder in both lives and, just like in real life, I love to find something in my inventory I haven’t worn for a while and dust off the cobwebs and give it an airing. Like this Besom hair I’m wearing that I first blogged in July 2015 and, in all honesty…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

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…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

It’s got to be….PERFECT!

I always have a tune in my head while I’m blogging and today is no different. The song invading my mind today is Fairground Attraction’s Perfect. It’s been a long while since I heard that tune but I found myself humming the melody while I edited this photo.  See, the person in this photo with…

A Picture Postcard

I’ve been seeing lots of awesome pictures the last few days and not in the usual places! I visited The Vordun Museum and Gallery, owned and operated by my very dear friend Jake Vordun, this last weekend for the opening of his latest exhibit ‘Sincerely Yours’. I’ve known for a long time that Jake was…
