There are places I remember

I’ve been a little quiet over the last few days for a number of reasons. SL going down as I was about to do some work, RL needing to drive around the country trying to find a plumbing part so my en suite bathroom would work again, and watching a lot of the news from…

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…

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…

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…

The Age of Entitlement

As always, my blog is where I get to shoot from the hip if I choose to. This is going to be one of those straight-talking posts. Not a rant…hopefully, but my opinion on what I’m seeing more and more in Second Life. Over entitled, spoiled, whiny-ass, allegedly grown adults sucking the fun out of…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Skin Deep

My excitement over the upcoming Skin Fair is almost at fever pitch as the launch of one of the most highly anticipated annual events on the grid is just days away! It was actually incredibly hectic weekend for me as we were preparing to launch the brand new Blogger & Vlogger group and website but…

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…

Friends That Inspire Me

The ways that we are inspired by others can be in such small, but nevertheless meaningful ways or in life-changing ways. The hair I’m wearing today I saw on several blogs and was inspired to go and buy it. A small thing in the big picture of life but those bloggers and the designer made…

Black and Gold

I have always loved taking photos in Second Life long before I was a blogger. Photography always came first and taking photos out in the ‘wilds’ of SL which is why you very rarely see a ‘studio’ shot from me in my blogs. I enjoy finding sims and places to pose and take photographs, then…

Through Glass

I am a big fan of that song by Stone Sour – Through Glass and I know several people that think of it as a song that resonates with their personal relationships in Second Life. How much is real? So much to question An epidemic of the mannequins Contaminating everything Those of you who have…

And One for the Pot

I love going out for afternoon tea or setting up an afternoon tea at home. I don’t do it so much now that my children are older but on Sundays we would have an early roast dinner and then a tea in the late afternoon quite regularly. Other than that I am not much of…
