I remember the day I had eyebrows like Brooke Shields. A little more refined though.
I was always embarrassed as they were there in my face, on my face. You know what it’s like, there’s always something about yourself you don’t like. For me it was Brows.
However I never needed to pluck or wax as they were in fact pretty perfect in shape. I just never appreciated that fact at the time.
I don’t know if any of you women have noticed, as men lose the hair on their heads, we get thinning eyebrows. Fact. Oh and our pubes get thinner and apparently grey.
Now I don’t generally check my pubes out, I mean I don’t particularly stare at my vag as a rule, but I have noticed that thinning thing.
So, let me tell you, there is a plus to it, no wasting money on waxing! Clearly old age has its plus points.
Back to the brows. As you age they tend to thin. Only the previously lush browed people notice this fact as the others who spend their lives pencilling, notice nothing.
So when A R T E popped these brows in the Blogtex, I was laughing so much, because I though OMG brows!!!!
Hence the face because I’m like “I’d love these now in RL. Past the credits you will see a picture of me back in the day. Yes back in the day I was modelling and a very 80’s chick who had brow phobia. Oh and Marie Osmond hair!
I finished work not so long ago, and time for another evening bedore tomorrow then the weekend.
I work from home and its great because when I get hot I can wack on the fan, and when I get cold I can wack on a blanket.
Seriously though, today I have felt suddenly like a block of ice, so much so I had to turn on my heating, at 1pm!!! Madness!!
I tend to only have it run first thing in the morning and then a few hours in the evening, unless it snows of course. Basically like most people the cost of gas and bills is increasing and my wages haven’t for years, so now its a case of being careful and just remembering that its unnecessary when there are other ways to get warm.
My mind then started thinking and wondering does this drop suddenly mean we could possibly, even remotely possible acquire a snowflake soon?
I keep checking the weather apps but of course, nothing like that is appearing. Believe me the second it does I will be telling you all.
I popped over to Luanes World and the sim has been transformed from Autumn to Winter all over again. You must stop by and climb to the top of the mountain. There you will find a toboggan and ride all over the place in it.
However don’t repeat my madness and crash into a couple will you.
I head on out in embarrassment.

*****UPDATE THE SIM HAS NOW PUT BAN LINE SUP AND IT APPEARS TRANSFORMING FOR THE WINTER. I AM UNSURE IF IT WILL BE REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC. SO I GUESS THE VIDEO IS YOUR ONLY GLIMPSE OF THE BEAUTY IT WAS****
Im just on my way out the front door as I am off to the cinema to see Frozen 2.
I cant wait.
Before I do here is my Sunday vlog and a chat while exploring Broken in Second Life.

I had a comment put on my one YouTube video yesterday which really made me chuckle.
The comment said and I quote “Why do middle aged, washed up, unattractive and overweight women in this game represent themselves as being young and attractive”.
Im guessing that was a personal dig/comment aimed at me. I mean I could assume it was aimed at someone else but as it was put under one of my videos then it was aimed at me.
Why did it make me chuckle. Let me tell you. I have regularly received such hateful remarks and as frustrated as I could get over them and feel the need to dramatically exit doing my thing, I choose not to.
I choose to swim against the tide and make no doubt about it, I am a strong swimmer despite the awful hateful things I get called.
You see, I am not easily bullied, that I feel I need to leave because one persons perception of me along with their cronies is to “encourage me” by regularly passing insult. I can get hurt yes, but it lasts moments.
A great guy said this to me. “Behind every troll there is an insecure, sleep deprived, ugly hating soul. Their sole existence is about hating others in order to make themselves feel better about themselves, yet deep down, they do not ever reach that better feeling.”
Sadly in the Vlogger/Blogger community part of Second Life there is this competitive negative force and people feel the need to behave in ways they deep down know they wouldn’t or shouldn’t ordinarily. That competitiveness is destructive and not community based.
Yet behind the keyboard these people turn into playground bullies and think it is ok to behave so.
I grew up in an era of the saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never harm me” For me, that is very true. They hurt, but I forget a day later.
But for others the harm can be real. If you are one of these soul destroyed people who feels the need to behave so in order to either boost yourself or ingratiate yourself to someone else. Stop and think.
The words that you spout on social media, has direct impact and can very much harm a person and you would be responsible.
But I need to add to that person who follows me to pop the dislikes regularly and the insulting comments via their alternate YouTube accounts and their cronies. Last time I checked myself out in the mirror, I am neither washed up, unattractive or hugely overweight. Yes I am middle aged, I own that. But believe me, you will get there one day too!
I am a professional in real life, I have qualifications, I have a family, I have children who have great careers and I have a grandson and I have great close friends.
I also have a past of fighting against abuse and bullies for being the person I am and for how I have looked. I was a model back in the day and because of how I looked I suffered a great deal of bullying from that part of life and sexist behaviour’s from a male dominated work force.
In my virtual world, I can be who I want to be. So if I want to be a lithe blonde then I will be a lithe blonde, If I want to be Chubby Marika, then I will be. If I want to be a buxom Thelma, then that is who I will be. Harriet, I will be her any day.
After all it is my Second Life and I will do as I please because I pay my way to be here.
If any of my readers find themselves in this situation, I want you to know I am soon to create something that I believe will help all the people who are feeling bullied, trolled, made to feel not good enough etc.
As a community, we need to stand up and say hell no to all the bullies.
Im attempting today to use my pics from Flickr. So if the image doesn’t appear…then clearly I messed up and went about it the wrong way. If I have I will fix it up again.
Its Saturday and I am looking out the window and no it is not snowing. It is however very Autumnal and full of leaves of oranges, reds and browns falling to the ground now.
I am housework overloaded and done, showered and clean and smelling like a coconut as I have slathered myself in coconut body butter today. I could easily say that today I am rather edible. (In a smelly kind of sense)
My plans? Hell none! Today I am relaxing and either between pc or some random film on Netflix.
Its miserable outside and a perfect day for being in clean pjs and doing nothing.
I am not expecting anyone to come over, though if they do, they can enjoy the bliss of my tropical aroma and shiny scrubbed skin and delight in the pjs of todays attire.
However in a virtual world as you can see, I am fully dressed and absorbing the autumnal feel of the moment.
