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…

Garden of Dreams

I love when things come together like this – especially at the moment when not much else is, at least my blogging is! There is so much cuteness and gooey goodness in this post with the items from across a range of stores and different events, and they all worked so well together for this…

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…

The Value of Time

Everyone’s time has value but one thing I’ve noticed is how much others don’t always value the time of other people. Like the debate on designers making items for different bodies. I think I’m going to talk about that in more detail at some point in the future but it is one example of people…

Fiesta Forever

So, I’m going to follow on today with my story about ‘Commando Karen’ because people have been asking. This is work event mishap number two… I joined a new company a few years back. Starting work on the Monday I was told it was the company conference that weekend on Friday and Saturday and I…

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…

Summer Games and Volleyball Playing Flamingo

I know they say things change fast in Second Life…but boy oh boy is that true. My thoughts on a particular situation have changed and developed every day. I’ve gone to bed every night convinced I now have all the information I need to make decisions, move forward, embrace changes and then the next day…

Blue Water

Seriously loving seeing all the summertime posts that are about on my feed at the moment. Much more, in truth, than I enjoy the summery weather in real life. I work in a non air-conditioned office, where the windows only open a small amount, and I rely on a fan to waft around warm air…

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…

Sssh It’s a Secret

I’m umming and arring about what to write about today…mainly because I prefer to think on things for a bit before writing about them. I’m the kind of person that likes to take a problem or issue, hold it up and peer at it from all angles, put it down again, think about it some…
