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…

Aiming for the Perfect Tree

I’ve been super busy this weekend and one of my top priorities has been completing the ‘winterisation’ of my public sim TaKe Heart. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I much prefer Spring or Autumn as seasons but there’s something about winter that, ironically, brings a warmth to the soul.  I wasn’t sure…

Oh Baby It’s Cold Outside

I’m not sure whether other bloggers write all the details of their posts in one go or do it in bits and pieces til it comes together as I do. The picture for this post was taken and prepared at least 48 hours past from when I am typing this. 18 hours ago I listed…

Suffer Fools? Not I!

I remember the exact time I first heard the phrase about suffering fools very gladly. My PC at work was playing up and I had to use a different desk in the office. I had been there about an hour and the lady sat next to me started to chit chat. I’d never really spoken…

Take a Seat and Pick Up a Book

It’s Roald Dahl’s birthday today – he would have been 100 years old and on the radio this morning they were discussing favourite parts of Roald Dahl books. Just a couple of weeks after Willy Wonka was in the news after the sad death of Gene Wilder it had me thinking about the film. I…

A Camera Is a Save Button for the Mind’s Eye

Photography in Second Life is a huge pastime and enjoyment for many and indeed a SL career for many others. We all associate so closely with our avatars and invest so much into the appearance and looks of our avatar that it’s not surprise that the profile picture is amongst the most common that you…

You Are Golden

The Arcade Gacha is almost here and Fancy Decor have pulled out all the stops on their amazing decor set for this round. There are 19 items in total in this Ramses decor set with 3 RARES. The Sofa and Armchair RARES come with a colour change hud with 4 colour options so you can…

Turn That Frown Upside Down

I’m having a bit of a sad day today…not because of anything personal but because of the constant reminders all around in the mainstream media and social media of just how horrid people can be these days. Humanity? That’s a joke right now. I was listening to a phone in at work today about the…

This is Where the Magic Happens

Oh if only *laughs* I was showing a friend around my new house a couple of days ago and as I showed him the partially (at the time) decorated bedroom he said ‘so this is where the magic happens’. It gave me quite the chuckle to myself. Oh the irony! Well, now I’ve finished decorating…
