The Thing About Memories

The Thing About Memories

I was looking back at my photostream on Flickr the other day, carrying out some housekeeping, and I was struck by the memories that some of the photos evoked. they weren't the photos you think would evoke memories because it wasn't about the photo itself it was about what I was doing or what was [...]

Blessed Grace

Blessed Grace

It's fast approaching Thanksgiving, just a week away today! As a Brit, I have strangely enjoyed Thanksgiving in SL the last couple of years. That is in large part due to having a US partner, Artem,  and us spending Thanksgiving together in Second Life last year. We plan to do the same this year and [...]

and…Woman I think you’re Dope

Anyone who regularly reads the blog knows my titles are often song lyrics and anyone that attends my sets should be pretty well aware of the lyric that is todays title. Dope by Beware of Darkness is one of my fave songs of the last 12 months. I often dedicate to all the women at [...]

Paint Your Nature

Paint Your Nature

I've had this picture in my mind for a well over a week now and was desperate for the time to 'paint' it. I was mulling over the scene in my mind when I came across this quote about art by Henry Ward Beecher: Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints [...]

Don’t Just Pay Lip Service to Second Life Experiences

Don’t Just Pay Lip Service to Second Life Experiences

Our Second Lives would be very dull if all we did was shop and this is coming from someone who can shop like a pro! As part of a team of experience creators I am of course passionate about all those other elements that bring joy to our second lives too. Whether that be a [...]

As We Walk in Fields of Gold

As We Walk in Fields of Gold

I introduced a friend to the music, and the story, of Eva Cassidy a while ago and I've had it in my mind since I first saw this beautiful field of radiant colour at the Yorkshire Dales a couple of months ago to use the space for a picture. So...voilà! I loved the Yorkshire Moors [...]

Though She Be But Little, She is Fierce

Though She Be But Little, She is Fierce

The title of the blog, a quote from Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare.  MND has cropped up in my SL a number of times this year all in very positive ways and I wasn't always sure that would be the case. It was at a Midsummer Night's Dream party in 2014 that I met [...]

When a Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie…

When a Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie…

I've tried Pizza in New York...and Chicago...and Italy. My favourite is a really simple Italian pizza that I had in Sorrento...thin base, smothered in gooey melted mozzarella, topped with roasted baby tomatoes and generously garnished with fresh arugula. I've tried to recreate it at home but like many holiday meals it's not quite the same [...]

I Don’t Care Too Much for Money cos Money Can’t Buy Me Love

I Don’t Care Too Much for Money cos Money Can’t Buy Me Love

So many money songs have been going through my head since I first saw this bath from BackBone as a WIP.  This was several days ago so there's been lots of time. For those of you that don't know BackBone is a new decor brand and the avatars behind the brand are Kiana Writer, the [...]

Table for Two

Table for Two

The weather in my tiny part of the UK is glorious as I write this post...sipping on a G&T while I get ready for an early dinner and cocktails with friends in real life. Just like my real life, my Second Life isn't always relaxing. Sometimes it's pretty stressful with late nights working to complete [...]
