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…

The Future’s so Bright I’m Gonna Need Shades

I love Mondays…I’ve always loved Mondays. I was explaining why to a group of friends the other day and I realised that when I first started to tell people I liked Mondays it was probably just to be different from all the moaners and groaners who were bitching about it being the first day of…

Things That Make You Go Oooooh!

Someone asked me once ‘Shoes or Hair’. That’s a tough question right? I mean that’s almost like asking me which of my two daughters I like the best!!! I love them both the same but they are so different in style and personality. Which do I have more of? Well if we’re going with sheer…

It’s the Most Wonderstress Time of the Year

I know I am not alone in finding the pressure piled on as we approach the Christmas season. In real life there is the shopping for presents and food, making sure the house is ready for the impending guests. There’s work parties, secret santa gifts, food to prepare ahead of time, cards to write, gifts…

Join Me in My Neverland

I never thought that a situation contained within Second Life could change me fundamentally but it has. When I became so emotionally invested in a person, a situation and, most importantly, a belief, I didn’t realise what would happen when the rug was pulled out from under me.  I’ve spent months cocooned in my own little…

Toward the Light

There is always light. There is always a silver lining we just have to open our eyes to the possibilities.  To be able to see the light I need to be open to new things, new ideas. I have to change my mindset and retrain a brain that has been moulded to fear. It’s the…

Where Did September Run Away To?

I honestly have no idea where time is going. I searched everywhere for it, under the sofa, down the back of the cushions of the armchair, in the pockets of the winter coat I got dry cleaned ready for October. I even climbed up into the attic to see if a few days of it…

Dream Catch Me

I have always thought that song by Newton Faulkner is the perfect Second Life anthem, especially these lyrics “There’s a place I go When I’m alone Do anything I want Be anyone I wanna be” I am living the dream in SL right now I have three fulfilling roles and it’s with both my MadPea…

Work Hard, Play Hard but Remember Your Value

There’s lots of good stuff happening right now in both of my lives. We’re fast approaching the MadPea Celebrity Auction at !Exodus! which brings both of my SL working lives together for a great cause.  A week later we will be launching The Peatonville Asylum adventure game that we have been working on non-stop for…

Mainstore Monday – Lamb & Tres Blah

Every Monday I blog a Mainstore Monday meme featuring two mainstores from around the grid. The purpose of this is to redress the balance a little between event shopping and mainstores shopping and show some examples of great mainstores, ideas, sims and places to blog and share with your friends. I love shopping events and…
