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┬ápeople, 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….

B E N T O – Kess Goes Bento!

When Bento heads were first released I went and got the demos for both the Lelutka and Catwa Catya heads. I have always preferred the pre-bento mesh heads from Catwa having had the Jessica head for a long time and switching to Destiny many months ago now. The thing is I was super happy with…

Starry Starry Night, Paint Your Palette Blue and Grey

  One of the subjects I wish I had studied more at school is art. I really wasn’t very good at it and later on in secondary school the choices were art and drama and I went for drama as I had always considered myself to be a budding actress. As a very young child…

I Wanna Live in a House, a very Big House in the Country

So I bought myself a larger house than I usually go for. I love decorating so I’m half excited at the thrill of digging through my inventory and unearthing some buried treasures now I have space for them and half nervous of the time it’s going to take me to get going. The great thing…

Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…

The Future’s So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades

  There are lots of things I can rely on my friends to do or say given the opportunity. Top of that list is ‘lower the tone’ (they know who they are and I can assure you they just read that and said to themselves “yups, she’s talking about me” with a broad grin on…
