When in Paris

I love Paris. I’ve been to the beautiful city several times and have many wonderful memories of my times there. Whether it’s been on business trips in my past life, or the wonderful weekend I spent there with a group of friends 15 years ago, the city has always been engaging, entertaining and fascinating. The…

Living for the Weekend

Oh gosh, where to start. I titled this post several days ago but right now I feel like I really am  living for this particular weekend. So, the post title became apt and appropriate without me realising.  It’s going to be a super busy weekend I have lots of plans in Second Life…most of which…

Fashionista Baby!

I’ve got so much to pack into this post I almost don’t know where to start. I’ve been working super hard in Second Life the last few months and so thought I’d treat myself to a little giftie and purchased Camtasia. Camtasia is a screen recording and video editing software programme and I’ve wanted it…

She’s Leaving Home

It’s a long weekend coming up in the UK with a public holiday on Monday and I’ve got to say I’m really looking forward to it. there are a few things you can guarantee about August Bank Holiday weekend and these are: The weather will be awful The roads will be at a standstill If…

Sweet Southern Charm

Savannah is the latest impressive mainstore release from Galland Homes. It’s a large family size home with spacious living areas on both floors. I actually really like this style of house, having bought one similar a couple of years ago, and while this one is probably a little big for me on my own to…

Thoughts of You

Compliments are hard. Not giving them…receiving them. I was explaining to a friend last night that I find it incredibly difficult to know what to say other than ‘thanks’.  My first reaction when being complimented is to deny and find someone or something else that should be complimented other than myself. I think it’s a…

Girls Gotta Glamp!

It’s been a while since I did a video of my decorating and I really enjoy these so I hope you do to. As usual I’ll start with the video so you can see the scene being put together. The scene was inspired and built around the Cheeky Pea RARE Treehouse from The Epiphany current…

Workplace Mishaps – Who not to stand near at a drinks party!

I was wondering what to write today and a friend literally just minutes ago told me about an accident she had with a bottle of sparkling water at her desk and it reminded me of something that happened to me once. I am prone to having mishaps at work functions. I will one day tell…

All things to all people

So, I admit it…I had a teeny, tiny meltdown last night. A perfect storm of feeling a little under the weather for a couple of days, rl stress, sl stress, a splash of disappointment in a couple of situations combined with tiredness and frustration with myself I took a nosedive into feeling sorry for myself…

Surf Hideaway

You know how some words crop up and then stick in your mind. I played a song during a dj set that I hadn’t heard for a while last week. It was a song from a film soundtrack – Blue Crush – and ever since then the word crush, and it’s different uses and how…

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…

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…
