Window Dressing

There are many character traits that us Brits are known for…’the Blitz spirit’ as it’s called is our ability to carry on as normal in the face of adversity and fear. The British ‘stiff upper lip’ which is our way of putting a brave face on things when we’re down or upset and our love…

Bloom Where we are Planted

I promise I really didn’t plan on having my butt on display two days running but it seems by butt cheeks operate on the same system as London Buses! You don’t see one for ages then 2 of them come along at the same time!! It’s the start of the easter holidays and Spring is…

Behind the Curtain

We’re all different, multi-faceted people right? I mean, we have our core personality traits and then aspects to our personality that can be drawn out by different people and different situations. Sometimes we hide somewhat ‘quirkier’ part of ourselves to whole groups of people for either personal or professional reasons but it’s always exciting to…

Ticket to Ride

My friend Tracy has a range of phrases that she uses quite often. They’ve almost become synonymous with her. One of them is ‘Hey! Don’t judge me!’ To be honest, she usually uses that when she’s done or said something she knows damn well is judgeworthy but that’s beside the point.  I’d like to think…

To Sin or Not to Sin

I had a very odd day yesterday. Odd in the sense that I felt completely unsettled in both SL and RL and I think there were a number of factors that contributed to that. There are changes afoot in my RL workplace and while they are quite exciting changes for me personally AND I’m generally…

Kiss a Ginger Day!

I don’t really have a huge amount to talk about today. Well, actually I do but I’m not in the mindset to formulate my thoughts into words on the subject so until I am it’s going to be a pretty unremarkable yap on a couple of things. My friend Tracy informed me that it’s Kiss…

I Don’t Know What It Is but Sometimes It Escapes Me

I had a huge crash yesterday. Not in SL but personally. I think it was a combination of the highs of the Christmas period and ‘coming down’ from the combination of stress, excitement and fun along with a few things not going my way that let to an almighty downer which manifested itself as a…

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…

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…

Burn Too Brightly

As soon as I saw this dress from Reverie Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights lept straight to my head. Described as a romantic dress one of the themes of the book, passion, was top of mind when I thought about how to photograph it. Wuthering Heights is also not just about passionate love but passionate revenge…

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…

…..Do It Better

Well the sign behind me in this picture actually say Hippies do it better but I was thinking it could say a lot of different….it reminded me of a song I used to play quite often when I dj’d called Brunettes Do It Better…of course I only played it when I was wearing brunette hair….
