I feel like the donut

I feel like the donut

I feel right now like I ate all the donuts.

I haven’t, I just feel like it.

As a woman who has always questioned why in life. I am right now asking why why why do we every single month have to go through that feeling of mood swings, bloating, stomach pain and let the list go on. Why?

We simply have no choice, well some of us. Others are lucky to not have that experience each month and in my next life I want to sample being one of them.

I’m 54 years old and I’m sure menopause is in transition right now. But, whilst that is happening I still get all the feelings of being 13 again when I used to disappear to the medical room at school and lay down.

I guess that’s life and it’s the way it is. But why????

Now on that note enjoy your Saturday and don’t eat all the donuts.

They’re mine!

Alia Mohamed Belly dances

Alia Mohamed Belly dances

I’ve been so excited to show you these dances I literally cannot wait till Saturday to do so.

Let’s start the week with the latest Dances from Paragon Dance Animations, the Alia Vintage Belly dances. I’m still in the snow mode because of the very intrinsic hand and finger movements.

Now if you haven’t noticed my style is always to use different music tracks so that you can appreciate the versatility of any dance. So watch with an open mind.

Honestly I really loved making this particular video. I hope you enjoy watching.

I stole the house I was squatting in

I stole the house I was squatting in

So says Harriet!!

Truth be told I have been following Sienna Foxdale on Facebook and her awesome rez builds she is doing and when I visited this one. I fell completely madly in love. Decided then and there to message her and impart some muller for the privilege of beautiful décor.

To be fair I have night on 192,000 (yep dont faint!) items in my inventory and despite having it all, nothing I can do in terms of décor ever can look this good. Im pretty useless at doing decorating as in reality Im very much minimal with plants or rather trees as my features. So my skill set is in that direction.

Howevee in pixel planet I do tend to admire the beauty of decoration and the best bit….no cleaning!!!!

If you want to check this place out. It was rezzed here but I cannot promise that Sienna hasn’t replaced it as yet. But please go check it out. It cost $5k in lindens and has if I recall around 820 ish prims in total.

Its my sky home now for Harriet and also a place to take beautiful inside photos for myself and friends.

Now the video…..

I’ll tell you what’s got my goat today

I’ll tell you what’s got my goat today

I’m currently going through one of those iffy phases where the emotional rollercoaster starts to hit and I’m a little bit wobbly.

It’s not surprising really given so much change has been going on recently and it’s change I haven’t really asked for or wanted.

Actually frankly no one has.

But seriously if I hear one more time on BBC One about “flattening the curve” and about how we must do this or must do that, I’m likely to lose my schizzle.

Oh and what the “science says”. I doubt half of those “professionals” even have much of a clue right now. So they refer to the “science”.

In my honest opinion I’m starting to believe that they really are spinning a story in the daily briefing and I’m now tired of hearing a whole lot of nothing really being said. We don’t need to hear this day in and day out. Day after day.

That being said, only those in the U.K. will know what I’m referring to. An endless time moment that happens each day that really tells us nothing.

Seriously why not just say “We have nothing to say”?

So this war paint look from A R T E nicely reflects my disdain at the moment.

On another note I’m rather fine, just annoyed with media and political confusions dampening our lives with no real answers. Don’t get me started on the selfish lot who ignore everything…..

The moment I lay my head

It’s Saturday night in the early hours if Sunday morning and I am just about to fall asleep.

I’ve not much to say because frankly I want to close my eyes and fall into a dream. In the meantime I’ll dance myself to sleep.

Goodnight and enjoy the video.

New kid in town

New kid in town

The Chimpanzee just did it for me!

Despite my classy look there was me jumping up and down like a banshee wetting myself with excitement when the chimp came out the box.

But then when the second one came out, my shrieks could be heard right across the meta verse.

You see for the past few years in Sansar I’m known as “her with the monkey”.

It became a special signature to me and I’ve always wanted to replicate it in second life but never met the perfect monkey. Till now.

So I may look a bit posh nosh but believe me I’m all down with the animals enjoying their wonderful animations.

So the chimpanzee is part of the HullabaZoo event. You really want to go. If you are like me and love all things furrie and cute. There’s so much more I’m going to show you over the coming weeks from both HullabaZoo and EQUAL10.

Now the video….

Hullabazoo 2020

Hullabazoo 2020

There is a new annual Shopping Event in Second Life called HullabaZoo!

It starts tomorrow on the 10 March and goes right through till the 31 March.

Its an event all about all sorts of creature avatars, pets, rideable’s, props and mods. You will also find accessories and mods for the creatures. There will be classes, a quest, photo moments, parties and much more.

One of the main aims of this annual event is to raise money for animal charities. This year the chosen charity is the Jane Goodall institute.

Community Centred Conservation: Contributing to the preservation of chimpanzees and their habitats by combining conservation with education and promotion of sustainable livelihoods in local communities.
Primate Care and Research: through study of primates in the wild, and sanctuaries for orphans of the entertainment and bushmeat trades.
Environmental and Humanitarian Education: through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots international youth education program which aims to inspire young people to take positive action on the environment on behalf of all the planet’s inhabitants

I was invited to blog this event and of course you know me I had to do a video. I suggest watching through as right at the end there is a little random moment of mine.

As you can imagine I have had fun playing with a few avatars and over the up coming days will show you more.

The main bit of information you will need to know is the landmark and the website 

The team behind this new event are Duchess Flux, Cass(Brokenlovely), Dreamsphere Zeiner, Sugarfairy88 Resident, Lil Cinnamon (Leel1980), Julala Demina.

Friendships in Second Life

Friendships in Second Life

One of the great things about our virtual world is not just the romances and the businesses that people experience but the great friendships we make.

I have on my vast list 5 exceptional good friends. And a number of virtual excellent friends.

What makes a friend exceptional?

They’re the ones you meet in a virtual world and you take to your reality.

The ones you speak to outside of the virtual world on a regular basis.

The ones you are there for to listen in times of need or offer voice to when they need to hear a kind word. Not just on virtual life but on reality. Good friends.

So I start my little Friends in Virtual life series.

Today meet Rosie Helendale. Man does she know me well!!!

One of that handful that it doesn’t matter what I need to talk about she has an ear.

And her RL knows it too!! 😁

Rosies good traits are, kindness, gentleness and good advice. No BS and honesty. All the stuff I value in my friendships.

She also has a Youtube channel which you may want to check out because she is queen of interesting knowledge in SL. Check her out here

So my aim is to share my friends and what makes them important in the world we live in.

Do you have special friendships from our virtual worlds which also add importance?

I think she was admiring my outfit from Lunar in this photo.

Every now and then I will feature these people so that you too may see their intrinsic human value in my life.

Exploring Bayou Du Chat Noir

Exploring Bayou Du Chat Noir

There are some times I don’t actually want to appear in a video, especially when my virtual self is having a bad hair day. I will say of course, she never has a bad hair day ever.

However I always feel the need to talk. Though today, I decided I would do less of the chatter and let you enjoy the lovely Bayou Du Chat Noir in its  glory.

What a gorgeous place to visit. So full of atmosphere and I can imagine the deep south warmth of the summer and  Blues and Soul music  escaping  out the windows of homes as you slowly walk along the gravel roads.

Crocodiles hiding off the shores of the swampy waters and the smell of Cajun and Creole foods drifting in the air.

A shot of whisky on your travels and the dusk settling.

Now the video……
