Outside in or inside out? – Speed Edit Vlog

During her recent talk at the Blogger and Vlogger Network, Wendz Tempest talked about a recent increase in ‘outside inside’ photos of Second Life. It’s something I had been oblivious to, but I really liked the examples Wendz gave and the links to her own work. I told her I was going to give it…

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding – Speed Edit Vlog

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and Dead Dollz have a stunning set that comprises several different elements. I’m focussing today on the decor elements of the set for The House of Brides. It’s a delightful, extensive set with lingerie, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses to wear as well as a Bridal store…

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

I’m not going to be writing a huge amount today.  As some of you know from previous posts my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last year and hasn’t responded very well to the treatments she’s had so far. Today is surgery day…she’s having a section of her bowel removed. It’s a fairly common operation…

The Road Less Traveled

The main reason I started blogging a couple of years ago was as an outlet for a lot of difficult to deal with emotions that I couldn’t express to anyone in Second Life. I recognised that I needed to process them somehow and my blog became an outlet. I’m fast approaching the 2 year mark…

Not a Care in the World

The weekend is almost upon us! It’s been a short week because of a public holiday in the UK and also been super busy in both lives so it’s literally flown by. It literally just feels like yesterday I was starting my week off when actually it was almost 2 weeks ago. Why does time…

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…

Warm Up – Cool Down

I’ve had a week off work and been super busy planning ahead. I’m a total planner and yes, a little bit of a control freak when it comes to planning my time and making arrangements. I’ve taken lots of photos and planned out several blog posts to get ahead of myself because I know how…

My Love Couldn’t Hold a Candle to Yours

Yesterday saw the opening of The Arcade and Fancy Decor have pulled out all the stops for their offering at this round. La Cire Cierge. This beautiful candle store gacha comes with 2 RARES, one being the building which comes with a colour change hud to alter the colour of the shop facade, and the…

If You Could Read Me Like a Book

I was wondering today what the cover of the book of my life would look like. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but as someone who spent a few years working in book publishing sales and marketing I know just how important the cover of a book is to grabbing the…

Je Suis Paris

Only people that have never experienced online friendships think they aren’t real. They are certainly different from conventional friendships but only in the sense that the communication platforms used are different. A lot more written communication in the form of IM’s, emails etc and a lot of less verbal communication and occasionally face-to-face communication via…

A Bun in the Oven

Today is going well so far and completely to plan. Most of the house is clean and tidy, the last lot of laundry is in the dryer, I’ve lit the Christmas candles and the scent of vanilla and nutmeg is dancing delightfully around the house with the aroma of the cinnamon swirl buns I have baking…

It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like….

The radio at work is starting to ramp up the number of Christmas songs it plays per day. When I was growing up, and probably on through my 20’s,  the rush to be Christmas number 1 in the UK was huge news. There would be betting odds with all the bookies giving odds on whether…
