Surf Hideaway

You know how some words crop up and then stick in your mind. I played a song during a dj set that I hadn’t heard for a while last week. It was a song from a film soundtrack – Blue Crush – and ever since then the word crush, and it’s different uses and how…

In it to win it!

It’s an informational post from me today rather than a random delve into my thoughts! I wanted to share with you a couple of photo contests that are going on right now. First up is the FaMESHed 5th Anniversary Contest. The prizes are crazy…and unlike most things in SL I mean crazy in a good…

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….

Magic Tea Time Bliss

I need a good angel. You know the ones that sit on your shoulder and tell you when to behave and shout down the bad devil on the other shoulder egging on you on to do the stupidest things? See the devil, or bad angel, had no competition at the moment it seems. The bad…

Rest and Be Thankful

One man’s rest is another man’s work. We all find different ways to relax and chill out and what works for one isn’t always what is going to work for another. I have a friend that is constantly telling me I need to take more breaks, chill out and enjoy SL. What he doesn’t get…

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…

Starry Starry Night, Paint Your Palette Blue and Grey

  One of the subjects I wish I had studied more at school is art. I really wasn’t very good at it and later on in secondary school the choices were art and drama and I went for drama as I had always considered myself to be a budding actress. As a very young child…

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…

Lazy Weekend

I had to giggle at the name of the post which is named after the skybox and gacha I’m using for the photograph today. ¬†Anyone that knows me knows that I have no idea how to be lazy in SL! I have a bit of a running joke going with my friend Jase, who is…

I Wanna Live in a House, a very Big House in the Country

So I bought myself a larger house than I usually go for. I love decorating so I’m half excited at the thrill of digging through my inventory and unearthing some buried treasures now I have space for them and half nervous of the time it’s going to take me to get going. The great thing…
