Carpe Diem

I’m taking part in something that got started in a Plurk conversation over the weekend by Sophia Harlow and Blogtober was born! I really had a slack week blogging last week due to numerous other SL work commitments but generally the idea is that I will blog every day from now until the end of…

Let the Shadows Fall Behind You

I admit to being a bit of an ‘ostrich’ and burying my head in the sand especially when it comes to real life issues but it can also be true when dealing with uncomfortable situations in Second Life too.  I can be prone to procrastination on real life tasks etc mainly because there is much…

Beach Days and Getaways

I can be a little OCD but then so can a lot of people. In Second Life that manifests itself in a number of ways but one of the ones I notice most is my ‘fear’ of running out of things: L$ – My friend posted the other day that she was down to her…

You Can’t Save Me

I was talking to my friend Sady yesterday and I mentioned how much I am enjoying this year in Second Life. We grow as people by making changes to our lives and with the exception of my ‘constants’ (my very close circle of friends) almost everything has changed in one way or another. Sometimes they…

Hair Fair 2016 – Bandana Day

We’ve all enjoyed hours upon endless hours at Hair Fair 2016 choosing styles, trying demos, mixin and matching hair with outfits. As the event draws to a close it’s time to remember the real life importance behind Hair Fair and what we’re raising funds for. Wigs for Kids. Tomorrow is the last day of Hair…

They Think It’s All Over….It Is Now…

The title of this post today will be a phrase that every English person knows, most Brits in general will get and maybe a few people a little further afield. Those words were famously uttered by a tv commentator during a football match and to use the full quote “Some people are on the pitch….they…

Y’all Need Jesus

I’ve talked before about forgiveness. It’s one of those things I wish I was better at for no other reason than people I know who are able to forgive easily tell me it makes them feel better.  They tell me that they forgive for themselves not for other people. I was joking with a friend…

One Day My Prince Will Come

The phrase ‘you gotta kiss a lot of frogs’ before you find the prince never much appealed to me in real life let alone in SL. In SL you’re expected to go a lot further than kissing before your prince will reveal himself and that doesn’t much appeal to me either.  I’m not judging. If…

Look for the Bare Necessities

Everyone’s a critic! I’ve noticed it a lot this week in Second Life particularly. Now, I believe constructive criticism is important. To self-critique ourselves and our work is vital if we want to improve either as people or to create better products or services. But there is a chasm of difference between feedback and just…

Last Few Days for Hair Fair Photo Contest

There’s still time to enter the Hair Fair 2016 Photo Contest…but only just! The contest closes on the 1st July and if you haven’t entered yet and you love hair….why the hell not? The prizes are amazing and there are numerous opportunities to win!  Hair Fair is THE hair event of the year but it…

If You Were Born Without Wings, Do Nothing to Prevent Them Growing

The title of this post is a quote from Coco Chanel. It’s not always easy to avoid the things in life that clip your wings a little but how you deal with those situations and/or people will determine how quickly your wings recover and you feel ready to take flight again. Those scars and dents…
