A Smile Is a Curve That Sets Everything Straight

I’m a book reader. I read every night before I go to sleep. No matter how tired I am I have to read at least a page of a book to help me unwind and replace all the muddle of other stuff in my head with a story I can get lost in.  It’s rarely…

Leave it all behind

I had one of those odd days yesterday where I found myself wondering about the ex of all ex’s. Voldemort, as we call him. I remember talking to a friend a few weeks ago who had recently gone through a break up and she expressed how she wished she could stop looking to see if…

Ladies & Gentlemen…wear sunscreen!

Now this blog post is supposed to be about suncream. I’m not really sure how to work suncream into a blog post in Second Life as with our every day beautiful skies in our glorious virtual world we don’t have to worry about skin burning and the dangers of UV rays. We also don’t have to…

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…

Fringe Benefits

I really enjoyed doing the vlog yesterday and I have more planned but I am going to mix it up with doing regular blog posts too for now. Part of the reason for that is that I have a routine and plan in place for blogging and while I quite enjoy change I have to…

The Skin Fair – Catwa & Belleza

Prepare to be inundated with posts about The Skin Fair because there is so much to pack into such a short space of time! I can’t even begin to tell you the excitement when I saw the new Catwa head. I gotta admit I love my friends looks with the previous releases but I could…

Free from the all the pain, Free from all the game

Why is honesty such a difficulty for a large number of people online? Now, there are several degrees of deceit, a spectrum if you will. It seems to me that sometimes people want to please so they tell you what they think you want to hear. We can call them white lies and I think that…

Here Comes the Sun

There’s been a break in the weather! It’s superbly Springlike in the UK at the moment which is such a refreshing change from the dull, dowdy weather of the last few weeks. Now the battle for control of the heating and opening windows begins at home and at work. See, I don’t feel the cold…

Choose your Battles

My battles over the last few days have been against myself. Feeling grumpy and moody (honestly I know I’m a woman n stuff but that’s really not like me) and struggling with a need to sleep versus a desire to keep myself busy til crazy hours of the morning. Nothing bad had happened to put…

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…

Tears Won’t Fall

What has been the single worst element of 2016? It’s hard for anyone to tell because there has been so much death, destruction and history making, regardless of your views, political decisions which will have an impact across the world for many years to come.  Fake news websites have increased in number, their readerships have…

Santa Baby…I’ve Been an Awful Good Girl

I talked earlier in the week about Christmas songs and Santa Baby has to be up there as one of my favourites. The song was in my mind as I took this picture. Everything is a bit of a blur at the moment as the rush to get ready for the Christmas season takes grip….
