Travelling in virtual reality

Travelling in virtual reality

There’s is nothing quite like exploring in life. Be it virtually or in the context of jumping on a plane in reality.

Seeing as reality is dishing us a current state of confusion and inability to travel, let me mix it up and take you on a virtual journey where you can leave all the negatives at the press of your play button.

If only we could press a play button for whatever we want!!

Or can we?

Now just watch because it’s better than being bombarded by all the negative that’s suffocating our lives.

Don’t just stand there looking

Don’t just stand there looking

I don’t speak of my background but my mother was a result of a mixed race love affair. In South Africa. In times of Apartheid. Her mother married an afrikaaner and she was born. But she was noticeably quite different.

But she took on being the “white” persona.
She herself became racist. Go figure!!
She met my father who was a result of a Jewish family and then they eventually relocated to Australia. But in between my childhood years I lived in South Africa and Australia. I saw apartheid and experienced what it was like to never be sure where we were “allowed”.  I was in the middle, never comfortable in the white lane or the black lane. I grew up hating my heritage.
When apartheid was abolished and after spending my majority of childhood in Australia and loving people just for being humans no matter their colour or race or religious beliefs, I’m honestly so sick in my stomach that Today in 2020, this absolute sick human thought process still exists! 
Black lives matter, white lives matter, ALL lives matter!!
You can’t sit back and say and do nothing. You can’t just sit back and say “I hope it gets sorted out”. 
Stop sitting there and placating. Human lives matter. Speak up, do something. 
Show the bigots and racists, mysoginists and all others that we will not tolerate them. 
It’s 2020, It’s time they caught up and got themselves educated. 
Violence doesn’t work. History has taught us that.
Use intelligence, use education, use voice. Vote well!!!Protest peacefully and use your voice!!

ASMR in the coffee shop

Today Beverley comes to you from the Namaste Coffee shop in Second Life as she lives her COVID19 Lockdown.

Beverley has always been a lover of food and of course will always be found munching on something.

There is no logic to Beverley, she is the enigma of her virtual world she lives in and embraces the concept of finding calm, calm so much calm.

Beverley is the Parody of what is. What may be and what could be, if only.

Burlesque

Burlesque

I am feeling Sassy!!!

Only in a virtual way. In reality I’m not feeling so great. In fact stomach pain and it’s breath taking. Literally. Last time I had all this it was medication related and the effects in the stomach. Catch 22, need the medication, but don’t need this!

I’m glad I’m a hard worker in all lives because it means I’m always ahead of myself so can still release my videos and blogs. Well for now anyhow. I’ll run out by Sunday.

The dance is the Burlesque and it’s beautifully done as always by Miss Dakota by Paragon Dance Animations. All details below the video. Enjoy.

No need for me to write much because I say it all in the video. Plus I’ve got the migraine from hell today so I’m going back to a lay down for a bit. Recover and restart my day.

Glorious day stay safe

Glorious day stay safe

Today is such a gorgeous day in reality. I wonder how many people will be out and about in the sunshine forgetting that there are social distancing rules?

Let’s face it, all around us are people ignoring it and just carrying on as usual, some more discreetly than others.

My thoughts on this are twofold. I understand both sides of the coin.

What would I do?

Well I’m working so that’s all sorted.

What did I do over the same glorious weekend?

Stayed home and followed the rules.

Despite my moment to find life the other day, I have followed the rules. At the end of the day, the unknown is something we deal with each time we make contact with someone. We can’t see it so won’t know if we pass it.

Be careful and follow the rules as best you can.

Just because you can’t see it or you haven’t been personally affected, doesn’t mean you stop being careful. For sunshine and a tan?

Find your garden, it’s not forever. It’s just a moment in time.

Decisions, decisions!

Decisions, decisions!

Happy Saturday lovely people.

I’m a little weary and deciding what I’m planning to do.

I could visit Las Longes or maybe go chill in Calais De Bedroomes.

Decisions decisions. I simply cannot make my mind up!

Though to be honest right now I would rather be chilling like my photo on a balcony overlooking the sea and staring at gorgeous dolphins leaping in the air and the sound of the sea and the sun on my face, sipping an iced tea.

Last night I attempted my 2k subscriber giveaway with a number of technical issues.

To be fair though I was extremely pleased with being able to do it on ultra graphics and no lag at all. If anything at least that turned out well.

The only glitch was trying to switch between a web page and the secondlife viewer.

On practice I thought I had cracked it but in truth. Nope.

Maybe by 2034 I may eventually have learnt. 😳

Although the video has nothing to do with this post I am adding it in here so those who reads my blog are aware of the winners.

The outfit deets will be posted later today as they form part of tonight’s video. Go figure. I’m a bit upside down like that in my chaotic head.

Have a glorious Saturday and by the way this outfit has a hud!!!

Thank God it’s Friday

Thank God it’s Friday

I love giving snippets of new life at mine and Rosie Helendale’s new joint sim. Namaste in Los Angeles.

Be it a picture or a video, the snippets are small.

Amazingly 3 out of 4 rentals have already gone and people moved in, before we have even opened.

Now that’s quite something.

I really cannot wait to share with you.

In fact since this picture was taken, so much has changed.

We are happy with the little world we have created and what will be a lovely small community to hang out in.

Rosie has done the majority of the landscaping and I have just thrown in the materials and houses . Between us we are now landladies to a new home that will be both for pleasure and residence.

So while I lazily sip my tea on the patio, I bid you a Thank god it’s Friday!!!
