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…

Sticking Your Head in the Sand

If you love clothes and shopping and hate politics you might want to skip to the ‘About the Stuff’ section today…sorry, not sorry. The title of the post is something I imagine the majority of the Tory leadership doing this morning and judging by  a few of the idiots they have rolled out on the…

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…

Secret Garden

Yesterday was the first real Spring day in the UK where there was heat in the breeze as well as the sun in the sky. I saw my first bumble bee buzzing around too so it must have been warm! There’s something about the sun and warmth of Spring that lifts the spirit and makes…

If You Could Read Me Like a Book

I was wondering today what the cover of the book of my life would look like. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but as someone who spent a few years working in book publishing sales and marketing I know just how important the cover of a book is to grabbing the…

I May Not Fit in That Box

  This week I’ve had several discussions with different friends and I started to think about how we interact differently with different people. Sometimes it’s because those people don’t know us as well as other friends so our guard is more up, or down, dependent on who the person is. Often it’s because of the…

Stay, I Miss You

Even with Christmas not already done and dusted there’s a lot of thought going into what 2017 is going to have in store for us all. I would have been tempted to say at this point that it can’t be any worse than 2016 right but we have President Trump to look forward to in…

Weekend

It’s the weekend and I love nothing more than having a long list of things to do and tasks to finish…which is just as well because  that is definitely the case this weekend as I catch up after a hectic week. My computer screen has become a giant post-it note with little notes surrounding it…

Escape the Cage

I laughed so much this weekend that at times my sides hurt and my cheeks burned. While trying to get an end result that looks sultry and sexy phrases like “you’re gonna have to open your legs wider Tempy” had us rolling in fits of giggles along with singing “you can’t touch this” to Cub…

Carpe Diem

I’m taking part in something that got started in a Plurk conversation over the weekend by Sophia Harlow and Blogtober was born! I really had a slack week blogging last week due to numerous other SL work commitments but generally the idea is that I will blog every day from now until the end of…

It All Looks Good on the Hanger

I worked with a woman in real life about 20 years ago who always looked stunning. She was a natural clothes horse…everything she put on looked amazing. I swear she could have put on a cloth sack on and it would look like she just pottered off the catwalk in Paris. That is one of…

The Chill Zone

I’ve had a rather lovely weekend in SL so far though I’ve been keeping a keen eye (aka as a second screen) on the Olympics. I’m totally in awe of the commitment that the athletes show to their sport. The hours upon hours that they put into training and getting to optimum fitness and shape…
