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…

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…

Eat, Sleep, Rest, Repeat

I’m looking forward to three wonderful days away from SL from tomorrow! Now, this is unusual because I’m quite the SL addict and in the past when I’ve gone away in real life I’ve always been a little bit anxious about how to stay in touch and find ways to get a fix of SL…

Living in a Box

The title of the blog is definitely a reference to the picture and not how I am feeling, or what I am going to write about. In fact, quite the opposite. I will tell you more about the location for this picture in a few minutes but first I want to talk about the pre-Christmas…

Black Friday – 2 Tips for Giftcard Sales!!

Happy Friday everyone! Who doesn’t love Friday? Even people that have to work over the weekend seem to love Friday more than any other day of the week. Now I’m one of those weird people that loves Mondays too but I’m a little weird though sometimes that love of Mondays works out for the best…

Through Your Eyes

My photograph today isn’t actually my photograph at all. My friend, fellow blogger, and outstanding photographer, Tempest Rosca, and I were talking a few days ago about doing a joint blog post and I suggested trying something a little different. I would take photographs of her for her to post on her blog and she…

I Can See for Miles and Miles and Miles and Miles

I remember as a child going for days out at the seaside and begging my Dad to give me a few pence to use the telescopes along the beach front. I didn’t really have a clue what I was looking at or seeing and definitely had no idea about how to focus or use the…

Breathe New Life Into Me

It was bitterly cold when I left the house in RL this morning and just like this picture there was a frost on my breath as I ran out to let the car run for a few minutes to warm up before the short journey to work. A situation at work yesterday, combined with the…

Don’t Look Back in Anger

Facebook memories are all the rage…sometimes they are good, sometimes not so good. Pretty much anything we post on Facebook will be coming back around this time next year to either put a smile on our face or cause the upside down frown. Not gonna lie I spent several months earlier this year dreading what…

Planning Ahead

On my facebook feed this morning was a countdown of the days to Christmas….sod Halloween that shit was scary! It’s definitely time to start ordering gifts, writing cards, thinking about the plans for that one single day in December that will have many of us stressing out for the next 2 months! There’s a lot…

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…
