I’m a little worse for wear this morning. I partied and drank rhubarb gin until the early hours of 3am U.K. time and had a great night.
Yorkie, Rosie, Guy and me spent our evening as Strawberry’s flash mob. Poor lady couldn’t get away from us. Then Maddie joined us a little later and we ended up dancing about in the snow in my front garden
All in our virtual world, because let’s face it, reality has tightly locked us down at the moment.
I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the night and I’ll share some of the photos below the credits.
Ready to winter shop and get new shoes because you have walked too much?
The Annual winter Shop & Hop in Second Life starts Thursday 10th for the Second Life Birthday Group Members from 9 am SLT. It then officially opens to all the public at 9am SLT on Friday 11 December..
There are 180 Second Life Content Creators participating.
There are 9 regions for you to visit with 20 stores per region.
All stores will have a free gift for you to nab as well as discounts from 20% upwards. I have seen so many discounts averaging around 50% which lets face it, if you are on a budget like me, makes sense. Get all your Christmas shopping done whilst saving a few lindens at the same time.
Second Life Birthday Group will get early access to the event on December 10th from 9am SLT onwards.
Event is open to the public from December 11th from 9am SLT to January 3rd.
You may want some links to all of this winter shopping craziness.
The official landing page is here when the page opens for you to visit all landing slurls will appear. Until then you need to wait for the Lindens to let you in. Maybe some bribes?
Meanwhile I would get some good comfy shoes on, grab your backpack and Lindens purse. Last but not least a good tip is to lower your graphic’s down and draw distances so you can actually move . Another tip if you are on firestorm viewer is to go to World at the top and scroll down and tick “show friends only”. I find the less people I see the more view there is . Shop like a stealth ninja I say! So its time to prepare for the shopping madness and prepare.
I’m a huge fan of hers and have been ever since I first knew her name from Pitch Perfect and then went on to watch all her films.
I find her strong, intelligent, funny and above all so down to earth as an actress and influencer in the world.
I don’t want to see the standard vacuous influencer any more. I want to see the people that reflect real people.
There is more to life for a woman than being the pretty visual.
Hence I admire Rebel greatly because this lady became her own woman without relying on her being a “pretty woman”. She has proven that there is no excuse for women to think that their only path to being somebody is to follow the tits out and flutter the lashes ideal.
You can be simply a woman, use your intelligence and be somebody. Be witty, bigger than life personality and simply just be talented.
In case you are not sold on that, remember Rebel is a lawyer not just an actress.
Never sell yourself short.
In other realms find below Thelmas latest video. Nothing to do with this post but sharing with my readers who would miss it given I didn’t do a blog for it.
Sorea shorts and top from Palette currently at the EQUAL10 till 5th December
On another note. It’s Saturday and I’m still sat here in my pjs. Don’t get me wrong I’ve done housework etc. I just actually need to shower and dress.
But but but, I don’t want to. I just want to curl up on my sofa and watch glorious Christmas films all day. Even though it’s still November here.
There are zillions of Black Friday sales on and I could go online and shop? But seriously do I really need to?
Right now we need to ask ourselves, each time we go to the purchase button, do I need that?
I’m very wary at the moment about my spend because of our current situations. Here in the U.K. people like me who work in the public sector are going to experience a pay freeze. What that really equates to is a pay cut.
People are losing jobs and I’m fully aware more are going to. It’s a pretty bleak look and I keep saying to friends when they go crazy spending, and do you REALLY need that!
My wage literally barely covers my living. It doesn’t allow me much for my own enjoyment and my one thing I use my spare on is my SL hobby and enjoyment. That won’t stop because I believe that I don’t live to work. But that’s it.
So two days ago. Something amazing happened to me. A lovely person purchased and sent me a brand new shiny computer so I can make better videos. I’m totally gobsmacked and in awe. I feel right now really appreciated and I cannot wait to start filming and taking photos with this. I owe him so much and if I could leap on him and hug him I would.
The video is not from the new machine. Though one released in 12 hours from now will be.
Andex outfit from Rodex at the EQUAL10 Event till December 5th
Welcome to another week of life!!! Leap out of bed and celebrate that your alive, even if you feel stuck in lockdown.
I’ll be honest my leap is pretty low and my landing sounds like a herd of cattle rampaging past.
Anyone else find they cannot stop eating this year? Seriously it’s like I’m a bear who needs to eat so I can hibernate.
In saying that pretty soon I won’t be able to drag my extra lard around and I’ll end up turning into the flotation device when the next great flood comes. Or I’m chow for the rabid dogs when the next ice age rolls over
Most people I know are saying similar things and I’m glad I’m not that alone in this because food and me are not good friends. We are lovers!!!
Still in my pretend existence, I’m lithe and athletic and can dance like the professionals. I’ll have that!
Have a great day and it’s never as bad as you think. ❤️
