Two’s Company

A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to collaborate with my twinny, fellow blogger and friend Divos on a presentation for the Blogger & Vlogger Network. Our subject du jour was Collaborating with Other Bloggers and during the presentation we set a bit of a challenge for the bloggers of BVN to collaborate…

Beat the Devil’s Tattoo

My friend Meri talked about politics on her blog yesterday…well in fact, she sort of apologised for talking about it but as someone who follows politics both my side, and the other side, of the pond, I found her post interesting and thought provoking. It made me feel a little guilty as ridiculing a particular…

Retreat in Peace

It’s been ironic that while building this set it’s been absolutely tipping down in the UK as we’ve had two days of almost constant rain…and there’s been nothing tropical about it.  There’s been a few ironies in Second Life I’ve observed over the last few days too…and not the ‘fly in chardonnay’ type….that’s just crappy…

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…

Outside in or inside out? – Speed Edit Vlog

During her recent talk at the Blogger and Vlogger Network, Wendz Tempest talked about a recent increase in ‘outside inside’ photos of Second Life. It’s something I had been oblivious to, but I really liked the examples Wendz gave and the links to her own work. I told her I was going to give it…

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…

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding – Speed Edit Vlog

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and Dead Dollz have a stunning set that comprises several different elements. I’m focussing today on the decor elements of the set for The House of Brides. It’s a delightful, extensive set with lingerie, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses to wear as well as a Bridal store…

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…

My Love Couldn’t Hold a Candle to Yours

Yesterday saw the opening of The Arcade and Fancy Decor have pulled out all the stops for their offering at this round. La Cire Cierge. This beautiful candle store gacha comes with 2 RARES, one being the building which comes with a colour change hud to alter the colour of the shop facade, and the…

A Bun in the Oven

Today is going well so far and completely to plan. Most of the house is clean and tidy, the last lot of laundry is in the dryer, I’ve lit the Christmas candles and the scent of vanilla and nutmeg is dancing delightfully around the house with the aroma of the cinnamon swirl buns I have baking…

It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like….

The radio at work is starting to ramp up the number of Christmas songs it plays per day. When I was growing up, and probably on through my 20’s,  the rush to be Christmas number 1 in the UK was huge news. There would be betting odds with all the bookies giving odds on whether…
