Je Suis Paris

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 [...]

Aiming for the Perfect Tree

Aiming for the Perfect Tree

I've been super busy this weekend and one of my top priorities has been completing the 'winterisation' of my public sim TaKe Heart. I've made no secret of the fact that I much prefer Spring or Autumn as seasons but there's something about winter that, ironically, brings a warmth to the soul.  I wasn't sure [...]

and…Woman I think you’re Dope

Anyone who regularly reads the blog knows my titles are often song lyrics and anyone that attends my sets should be pretty well aware of the lyric that is todays title. Dope by Beware of Darkness is one of my fave songs of the last 12 months. I often dedicate to all the women at [...]

I Don’t Shine if you Don’t Shine

I Don’t Shine if you Don’t Shine

I've been thinking about writing about Shine Theory for some time and my amazing, beautiful friend Sady wrote about a similar thing today on her blog so it seemed like today should be the day! I first heard about Shine Theory from an article on the BBC about the aides working in President Obama's White House [...]

I Bought [this] from [here] because of [them]

Speaking to a fair few store owners and creators everyone has a different view on bloggers and how useful they are to getting the brand out there and whether they truly result in additional sales. Let me say right off the bat I think they are vital...but then I would say that wouldn't I, I'm [...]

I Know What I Want and It’s Not What I Need

I Know What I Want and It’s Not What I Need

I woke up just 10 mins ago with the Golden Earring classic "Twilight Zone" in my head. Specifically: Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned The lyrics are a little different in my head with 'twilight' being replaced by the word 'friendship' . I guess it's [...]

Do Blondes Have Their Fun But Brunettes Do it Better?

Do Blondes Have Their Fun But Brunettes Do it Better?

I may swap my hair style several times a day but I do tend to stick with a hair colour in SL for years, even if i do swap it out now and again for a particular look in photos etc I always go back to the same colour. I had a very long Brunette [...]

Black and Gold

Black and Gold

I have always loved taking photos in Second Life long before I was a blogger. Photography always came first and taking photos out in the 'wilds' of SL which is why you very rarely see a 'studio' shot from me in my blogs. I enjoy finding sims and places to pose and take photographs, then [...]

Turn That Frown Upside Down

Turn That Frown Upside Down

I'm having a bit of a sad day today...not because of anything personal but because of the constant reminders all around in the mainstream media and social media of just how horrid people can be these days. Humanity? That's a joke right now. I was listening to a phone in at work today about the [...]
