Skate Mates

My rl and sl have collided of late in such a way that a peak of activity in both worlds have combusted at the same time. I’m always pretty busy but this last week I would guess I’ve been the busiest I’ve been for a couple of years. The difference between now and a couple…

Because I Can

I struggle with negativity. Not my own it has to be said. I’m, on the whole, a very positive person…annoyingly positive sometimes. I seem to be able to thrive on spotting the silver lining in almost any given situation. If someone causes negativity constantly around me that’s when I struggle. I mean, we all had…

Past Time Pastimes – Win a Bound Subscription Box

It’s the last weekend of The Vintage Fair. I’ve loved blogging the items from this event because of the nostalgic, retro nature of them. The sims and decoration has also been fun to visit and there’s a few good reasons why you need to visit again today, before it closes. Pale Girl Productions, who have…

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…

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….

Cruel, Cruel Summer

I have a super busy day, and weekend ahead so it’s not a hugely long post from me today. It’s not a cruel summer at all so far…it’s quite a blessed and happy summer…even if Facebook did try to put a spanner in the works this morning with a 2 year old memory.  It didn’t…

Sticking Your Head in the Sand

If you love clothes and shopping and hate politics you might want to skip to the ‘About the Stuff’ section today…sorry, not sorry. The title of the post is something I imagine the majority of the Tory leadership doing this morning and judging by  a few of the idiots they have rolled out on the…

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…

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!…

Sunday Girl

I like order, and routine…pretty sure that’s not going to surprise people that know me well. I have to be organised and methodical in approach to my rl and sl tasks in order to get things completed and it works for me most of the time. Until, that is. the proverbial spanner gets thrown in…

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…
