Isabelle’s book corner

Isabelle’s book corner

Next week I’m going to start something different on my channel.

It won’t appeal to many unless you enjoy a good classic book and audio.

It was suggested to me a while back to consider choosing a book and reading this and for no other reason other than to relate a book, maybe help someone who is visually unable to themselves read and at the same time myself reread some old books that are part of our learning history.

I’ll try mostly those that are outside of copyright as that’s always an issue.

If it is an interest to people then I’ll switch to requested readings .

I know personally I love at times just to hear a voice and to immerse myself into a story. So it’s on this kind of basis.

But if my voice is grating I certainly won’t expect you to listen. But thank you for considering.

Visiting Kolmannskuppe

Visiting Kolmannskuppe

Kolmannskuppe a place you need to visit in Second Life.

An amazing job has been done on this sim to replicate the real ghost town of Kolmannskuppe.

A place I highly recommend you go visit and just take in the ambiance.

I’m not going to say too much in this blog as the video below will speak for itself.

Do visit and let me know what you think.

It’s not long past 10pm here and I’m already in bed. But for the purposes of this blog I’m sat on a swing seat in a cocktail dress waiting for my date.

Seriously what is that about? Two nights in a row I’m too exhausted to even sit at my pc! Totally unheard of.

I spent a bit of time editing a video, but to be fair I gave up as I felt too tired to continue.

This clearly is the new normal.

Quarantine/Isolation exhaustion.

I’m so tired of doing a maximum of not much and that is having the effect of making me want to sfo less.

So as I’m laying here in bed I’m considering ways to change it and feel more get up and go, but with nowhere to go!

It’s crossed my mind that maybe I should order a cross trainer machine or running machine to use at home.

Good old Amazon, here I come….

Are you

Are you

Earlier I had to relog into Second Life as I had forgot to pay my rent.

I couldn’t be bothered to get back out of bed and put pc on so decided to pick up the laptop and do it.

My god!!! I’d forgotten what it’s like to use a machine that doesn’t have a SSD.

Wading through treacle is the most apt description I can give.

Moral of story? Pay your rent.

Sara Lopez and now I’m a pro!

Sara Lopez and now I’m a pro!

Today is Sunday.

I was going to release this late last night but I basically fell asleep.

Yes it happens. One moment I’m at a virtual party then live streaming and the next I’m passed out and wake up with a cat on my face.

Normal these days.

I don’t know about you but Sunday has been gorgeous here in the UK.

This morning was my first time doing a live podcast as a slot and I was a bag of nerves. But I soon got over that and relaxed and chatted about life here in the U.K. in this crazy time.

I’ll see if I’m invited back next week!

If I am then I may consider linking you guys, but for now I’m just seeing how it goes before I reveal my craziness.

Today’s dance music video features the choreography of Sara Lopez as she dances the Club Groove. I’m also wearing a outfit called Sara Lopez by Fashionatic also available at UBER.

Loving her dance moves coming into second life.

One of the best sassy dancers I have seen and I seriously get excited each time a new dance is released that she has made with Paragon.

Sara has even shared a video I filmed for Paragon on her Instagram!!! Ok my beating proud chest thumps. Now go watch….

On my way to a party…

On my way to a party…

I’m on my way to a party and I cannot wait!!

Not in Second Life, not in Sansar, not in Sinespace or Core.

I’m going High Fidelity VR.

I was invited earlier today and then….. my stream didn’t work.

That was last night.

The party was hosted by XaosPrincess in High Fidelity and I was lucky to have had an invite.

The part was a Lockdown part during this Covid19 experience and I had a hug, a real hug from XaosPrincess. ie her rl reached out via VR and hugged me. Now that is amazing.

I go on that part is here.

Philip Rosedale was there and even his avatar is handsome. Seriously he is melt at the knees kind of handsome that man.

I enjoyed the experience and made a decision today, I’m going to purchase myself a VR set up as I now need to experience what VR feels like.

So any suggestions on a kit for Sansar, Sinespace HighFidelity then please link me up.

In the meantime back to Second Life. Don’t I look the shizzle in this outfit?

Seriously I’m loving the hud and if anyone knows me they know blue is my favourite colour. So it had to be done.

The Desert Track in Sinespace

The Desert Track in Sinespace

I’m a bit of a world jumper.

In case no one had noticed I like to visit a few virtual worlds and games because as the saying goes Variety is the spice of life!!

I’ve been in and out of SineSpace again lately and I’m really noticing how it’s starting to get more visually interesting and interactive.

I’ll show you soon some of the more interactive environments but today this place!!!

Its like being inside a living cartoon. OMG!!!

Honestly you will see what I mean when you watch the video.

Plus, no drain on my computer in any way and shadows!!!

Go watch…..

I am wearing the DAZ avatar as given to me by Sinespace . The hands are large because I’m just weird like that. For my own amusement I decided to make myself more caricature as frankly why not.

I’m also a number if other avatars in SineSpace you will eventually find out.

To join you will find the details here

 

 

I give good head

It’s 10am and I’m on my balcony. I’m seeking the “light” with my bottle of bleach in hand!

Not really. I’m just relaxing in the sunshine.

If you have seen the news you will know what I sarcastically refer to.

I’m not even going to say another word on it because there are no words that can convey my true thoughts on this latest pile of doo doo.

What I will say is for god sake please don’t take it literally and go and try this madness.

You can listen to stupid, but don’t enact stupid.

On another note I’m on my balcony as Vitamin D (aka sunshine) is great for feeling more positive. So I’m practising vitamin absorption

Oh news time. As of Sunday I’ve been invited to an Australian podcast as potentially a regular slot.

Christ help the world.

This is as my Real self. Fingers crossed I don’t nose dive. Nervous? Yes but excited too.

Apparently when I appeared last weekend for a chat on how Covid19 is in the U.K. people wanted to hear more of me. So what the hell, why not!

Today I’m blogging eyebrows. I know right. But it’s on the Nova BOM head from Lelutka and I bought it especially for BOM appliers. She is rather cute and saved specifically to do applier blogs. Her face is reflective of my earlier writing. The eyebrows are cool as in emotive they raise lovely. Go A R T E!!!

Thank you Rosie

Thank you Rosie

Sometimes we need to look at our friends and let them know we thank them for being who they are and showing how much they mean to us.

Whilst todays video is a tour of a gorgeous sim, it is also my moment to thank those people who matter and I owe Rosie Helendale a very huge thank you that really even this blog or video cannot convey.

I was at a sense of rock bottom a few days ago and couldn’t stop myself from crying. It was uncontrollable and the pain in my chest felt so strong.

This lovely lady was the person who sat on the end of her phone and let me explode all my inner feelings about how I was feeling and allowed me that time to get it all off my chest.

I cannot tell you how important it is to have friends who can really listen in the bad times and who despite themselves going through their own angst, will be there to let you unburden.

Not many people get to hear that side of me to be honest. Its a rare thing.

I am open and will discuss most things close to my chest but there is always a point I retreat. So Rosie really heard my soul a few days ago and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for being the friend she has become in my reality as well as in my virtual.

We dont have to hang out every day to be friends, none of us. But when times are tough, knowing our friends are there for us, is what matters the most.

Be there to listen to your friends, they may need you.

Now the video and the beautiful sim Dya’s Scent of the Carribean.

Boss B*tch

Boss B*tch

I woke up this morning and decided that the best place for me to be would be on a raft in the sunshine, cool glass of some alcoholic coconut concoction and a sea of Jason Momoa’s doing synchronised swimming moves to the song track of Boss bitch.

Clearly Jason will be over shortly to audition just so I can make sure he is up to the role!

Any takers out there who want to be my Jason beatches in the water?
