Happy Birthday Cynful!

Quick post to tell you all about the fun and shenanigans that will be going on today at the Cynful. There’s lots to celebrate as the store turns 8 years old and opens a new mainstore on the same day! There’s 6 hours of tunes from 3 of Second Life’s best DJ’s and gifts galore…

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…

Two of my Favourite Things

Fashion…no decor…nopes it’s definitely fashion…no no, I love decor more. Truth be told, I can’t make up my mind.  I was advised once to pick either and stick with it from a blogging perspective but I just can’t do it. It’s like being asked to choose your favourite child. Impossible! 6 Republic opened yesterday and…

When it’s hard to say no

The fine line between trying too hard and getting it just right is something I’ve been struggling with for a few weeks now…well probably longer than that but it’s become apparent to me over the last few weeks. A friend referred to me as a ‘typical overachiever’ a short while back and it’s stuck in…

Rainbow Sprinkle Bottom Burps

It’s Friday and a long weekend so I figured I’d have some fun with the post title…read on to find out more! I was always told it takes less muscles to smile than frown when I was growing up. Now I’m pretty sure that’s a myth, in fact, I think I’ve heard somewhere clinical proof…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten

I decided on the title of this post a few days ago when I took the picture and I’ve had this song stuck in my head ever since. The original of the song was by Dusty Springfield and was released the year I was born but I became aware of the song in the 80’s…

Learning and Sharing as a Blogger

Since we launched the Blogger & Vlogger Network the importance of collaboration, networking and support within the blogging community has never been more clear to me. Yesterday we had Strawberry Singh come along and do a live presentation on the importance of social media and a couple of things struck me while listening to her….

A Very Rare Fish

I used to play WoW…well I still do occasionally and I am totally a sucker for achievements.  I still have never quite managed to win the Stranglethorn Bay fishing contest so I haven’t yet added the ‘Salty’ title to my list of WoW achievements but I’m pretty sure one day I will. Currently I’m slowly…very…

I Am Not Afraid

Not only am I British, I’m English. Not only am I English but I’m a Londoner. I live just outside London now but it’s my home city and like every right minded Briton, English person and Londoner I am not afraid. I listened to a radio show today that talked about that exact sentiment. Why…

Say Hello or Wave Goodbye

It’s a super short post today as I’m heading off with work today for a course. It’s been a long time since I studied for any formal qualifications but this course will be one day a month for a year and the end will provide me with 2 new qualifications to add to the list….

Bright Lights

I was so glad my colleague couldn’t see me when she called me yesterday to tell me that she had just been offered another job. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders and a huge grin spread across my face. Don’t get me wrong she’s a lovely person but she doesn’t fit the team…
