Call me at Diner Time – Speed Edit

I finally got around to doing another speed edit vlog!!! I really enjoy doing these and had been planning for this one since I received the diner set from unKindness. Obviously, this release, at Collabor88, ties in perfectly with so many of the items available at The Vintage Fair and a few other vintage and…

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…

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding – Speed Edit Vlog

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and Dead Dollz have a stunning set that comprises several different elements. I’m focussing today on the decor elements of the set for The House of Brides. It’s a delightful, extensive set with lingerie, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses to wear as well as a Bridal store…

Paradise by the Poolside Lights

I’m not going to be writing a huge amount today. ¬†As some of you know from previous posts my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last year and hasn’t responded very well to the treatments she’s had so far. Today is surgery day…she’s having a section of her bowel removed. It’s a fairly common operation…

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…

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…

The Beauty Battlefield

I talked over the weekend about how I would rather lose my sight than sound. It got me thinking as I was writing it about how that might work in SL. After all what most people, including myself, enjoy about SL is the ability to make our avatars a gorgeous, slim, physically attractive version of…

To Sin or Not to Sin

I had a very odd day yesterday. Odd in the sense that I felt completely unsettled in both SL and RL and I think there were a number of factors that contributed to that. There are changes afoot in my RL workplace and while they are quite exciting changes for me personally AND I’m generally…

OCD for Exercise?

Why is that I have a tendency to be a little OCD about really silly little things but can’t seem to catch the OCD bug for things that would be beneficial to me like exercise, or healthy eating or in fact any kind of self-discipline sometimes. I thought about this today when I was opening…

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…
