Falling

That split second when you’re off kilter, teetering on the edge…you could recover and find yourself back upright and steady or you could fall, completely and hopelessly. ¬†You’re weighing up the options. What’s the worst that can happen if you just let go and see what happens. Will someone or something be there to break…

A very happy Ginger

I think we all know that my preferred hair colour is red…more specifically ginger! It’s a hair colour I’ve stuck with in SL for well over a year now and it’s not getting old as far as I am concerned. Finding the right colours of ginger can be challenging – there are hair stores I…

Daydream

I can be a bit of a daydreamer and find it all to easy to disappear off into my own little fantasy world…after all that’s partly what Second Life is right? I remember as a child how much I wanted magical wishes to be true. The fairytale idea of getting three wishes that would come…

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…

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…

Music for Love

What do I even write about today with the news that Britain is waking up to? When you went to bed hearing the news that an explosion had rocked a concert in Manchester and there were fatalities. When you wake up to the news that 22¬†people, some of them children, have already lost their lives…

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…

Rainbow Sprinkle Bottom Burps

It’s Friday and a long weekend so I figured I’d have some fun with the post title…read on to find out more! I was always told it takes less muscles to smile than frown when I was growing up. Now I’m pretty sure that’s a myth, in fact, I think I’ve heard somewhere clinical proof…

Rest and Be Thankful

One man’s rest is another man’s work. We all find different ways to relax and chill out and what works for one isn’t always what is going to work for another. I have a friend that is constantly telling me I need to take more breaks, chill out and enjoy SL. What he doesn’t get…

Behind the Curtain

We’re all different, multi-faceted people right? I mean, we have our core personality traits and then aspects to our personality that can be drawn out by different people and different situations. Sometimes we hide somewhat ‘quirkier’ part of ourselves to whole groups of people for either personal or professional reasons but it’s always exciting to…

A Different Corner

I attended Wren Noir Cerise’s talk on photography at the Blogger & Vlogger Network last weekend and picked up so many hints and tips on how to set up my photographs. I’ve worked on several shots this week where I know I included many of the pointers she gave us and loved how those photographs…

Say Hello or Wave Goodbye

It’s a super short post today as I’m heading off with work today for a course. It’s been a long time since I studied for any formal qualifications but this course will be one day a month for a year and the end will provide me with 2 new qualifications to add to the list….
