Whimsy and Wonder – Dust Bunny Speed Edit

Today is a day for escapism, wonder and whimsy. It’s what Second Life is for…escaping the real world and it’s many horrors. I’m not going to focus, in this post, on my thoughts about the recent real world events and instead, hopefully, provide some lighter, happier, relief. Dust Bunny have released a new gacha set…

Time to Feel Good – Hive Speed Edit

Camping trips as a child were fraught with irritations, bad weather and arguments but I still look back on them through rose tinted glasses. I do remember the bad but I remember firstly the good times. Playing badminton, long days at the beach, running around free for hours, making new friends who you would declare…

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…

On my Shopping list…

Although it’s a fairly well known quirk of mine to love Mondays…I do love a Friday too. As I use Monday to look forward to what can be achieved in the week ahead, Friday is the day when you look back and give yourself a pat on the back for everything you completed and achieved….

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…

It’s not just a place…it’s home

I think it’s possible I’ve rezzed, partially decorated and de rezzed upwards of 20 different houses in the last few months. That is about to change. The main issue was that I was using houses on a platform on my sim TaKe Heart which meant I had to be frugal with prims and I’m not…

A Different Corner

I attended Wren Noir Cerise’s talk on photography at the Blogger & Vlogger Network last weekend and picked up so many hints and tips on how to set up my photographs. I’ve worked on several shots this week where I know I included many of the pointers she gave us and loved how those photographs…

Secret Garden

Yesterday was the first real Spring day in the UK where there was heat in the breeze as well as the sun in the sky. I saw my first bumble bee buzzing around too so it must have been warm! There’s something about the sun and warmth of Spring that lifts the spirit and makes…

A Picture Postcard

I’ve been seeing lots of awesome pictures the last few days and not in the usual places! I visited The Vordun Museum and Gallery, owned and operated by my very dear friend Jake Vordun, this last weekend for the opening of his latest exhibit ‘Sincerely Yours’. I’ve known for a long time that Jake was…

The Simple Life for me

It’s the weekend and for me it’s a rather special weekend. Today is my birthday…the one before yet another BIG ONE! Now, that would normally make it special enough but we’re a family full of celebration this weekend. Tonight we are going out to a party to celebrate the engagement of my niece and her…

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…

Turn On, Tune In and Cop Out

  I love the 90s. The looks, the hair, the games and especially the music. Last week I did a 90s DJ set at Blithe and it seemed to really hit the right note with everyone who came along and I simply adore the Friday night crowd at Blithe. I had invited a couple of…
