Feel good about yourself

Feel good about yourself

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.

I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.

There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.

I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.

However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.

Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.

I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.

Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.

Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.

Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.

So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.

Try it.

I love a bit of head

I love a bit of head

Honestly I love my Catwa HDPRO head. Love it!!!

The fact that now Not only have I got (from my point of view) gorgeous skin for it. ARTE have now released some brows and eyeliner for it.

I think I look rather good today if I must say so myself.

There is no visual artistic photoshopping work to my photo. Just a plain very little touched photo. So what you see is what you get. Which is always how I prefer to see things.

Today the Steele blue eyes from ARTE are verging on the greeny spectrum and I love how they look.

Will I be changing eye colour permanently? Well you can wait and see.

In the meantime, someone reading this not from SL will think I’m a little bat shi💩 crazy.

They could be correct.

Goodnight all and sleep tight.

Too much going on

Too much going on

Sometimes the pace of life seems to run at a speed faster than we can keep up.

But if we plan then we can beat the clock and catch up.

I’m not catching up. So I’ve taken myself to bed in the hope of getting some sleep.

Deep down I know that will be short lived when the housemate comes home. She has no filter of any sort and a lack of respect for my personal space.

I could sit and tell you how my housing situation is troubling me but I shall spare you that woe.

Today feels like there is so much on top of me that even creating a video I decided not to do.

My grandson Mason was sent home from school today as a child in the class and his family contracted and tested positive for COVID. So all children from that class have to now self isolate. They are only 5!

I’m still trying to get my head around what is going on around me in the world but also how incredibly selfish people are behaving.

Why send your child to school knowing he is not well? Why be so selfish and do that?

I need say no more.

You know how you would feel.

Just waiting right here

Just waiting right here

I’m into week 3.5 or is it 4 of my social experiment about face filters and how they really are cunning little things.

I say little because they come via a phone app or a camera nowadays.

The drastic differences to your appearance can be pretty shocking but even more so the concern as to how vulnerable as a human you can feel if you were to compare yourself to some of the imagery you see via such social apps as Instagram and YouTube.

I’ve certainly become quite observant now of anyone who appears on my social media that looks good. When I say good I mean with pore-less skin and looking more youthful than logic says they would.

Imagery that is not true to aspire to.

However here in Second Life, we can be whoever we want to be. Because we all understand that we are real people on the other side.

Today I’m that girl next door.

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!

Deco Soup fan girl moment

Deco Soup fan girl moment

I’m having a fan girl moment.

After a really meh day as I explained in my last blog post I thought I’d cheer myself up by releasing this blog and video today.

It was due for tomorrow but hey I’ll press the finger down anyhow.

So I’m basically blogging the outfit from Suga Baby and blogging a gorgeous home in Second Life decorated by Sienna Foxdale. Subject to my fan girl moment.

Sienna Foxdale does some amazing decorative work under the brand name of Deco Soup.

So rather than me blathering on. I do feel you should just watch the video and then hop on over to check it out in real time.

These nails I cannot see

These nails I cannot see

I seriously kid you not when I say I’ve spent a good part of my day with blurred vision which meant I really couldn’t see much.

I had some eye tests in the morning and had that stuff put into my eyes that stings like hell and then makes you struggle to focus. Oh and you feel like a vampire as the daylight is so strong you want to run back inside. That’s been me.

I logged in to my work after and my god that was just the worst struggle ever.

I literally had my computer screen right in front of my face so I could try and see. Logged off in the end as there was no point.

Had a nap and now way better.

Can I say, it gave me an indication of what it must be like to lose your sight, or rather be struggling to see.

It’s not nice or easy and frankly I’m very grateful I have the ability to see. To go through life seeing but not seeing must be incredibly difficult for anyone in that position. So yes sight and sound I value above everything in my abilities. Oh and my voice too.

I get my results in about 1-2 weeks. So yeah. That was my day.

It’s nearly 7 pm here in the UK and I’m back to normal. Shall continue to chill and tomorrow it’s back to work, repeat.

Check out my whole look and I’m sure you will agree I need to be seen.

Time for reality

Time for reality

It’s nearly 5pm here in the U K as I tap this blog into my phone.

I’ve spent my day relaxing and just enjoying my day perched on my sofa with my pjs on watching all sorts of films. Reading my kindle at times and just feeling chilled.

I just watched Meet Joe Black for the zillionth time and frankly why not. I love the whole romance vibe today and why not.

In between that I’ve made some daft Tik Tok videos because eh why not. I spend my time laughing all the time with this daft app and heck why not. It’s my spare time so I’ll do as I please.

I’m due to turn on my pc and see how my mirror saving my hard drive fared. Though part of me is a little apprehensive in case I’m disappointed. We shall see.

But first going to see how my laptop can handle an SL experience.

In the meantime feel free to imagine me like this virtual photo wearing Lunar. It’s seriously way better than my current rl vibe right now.

Here have a Tik Tok. Guess whose voice !!

Take a moment

Take a moment

It’s Friday and I’m ready for the weekend to appear so I can take a moment to catch up with myself.

It’s been a pretty manic week reality wise and then of course the issue I raised via a ranty vlog earlier this week.

That vlog was removed, not because I had done anything wrong or in fact any reason to do with me.

I removed it from the YouTube platform because the vlogger it affected requested me to do so. Because there was some kind of agreement made that the copyright strike would be removed, if I removed the video!!!

Does that sit well with me? No not at all! I don’t believe in manipulation or any kind of bartering agreements like that. But, because this person was upset by their dilemma, I did.

In fact I have asked this vlogger if the strike was removed and I have had no response. So you decide.

By not answering I can only assume the outcome.

Now there is something I really need to say about this fiasco, it doesn’t sit well with me when anyone pleads for help and then I feel manipulated by all involved because of a business thought. I won’t go into it right now. It may have to sit with me a while before I do.

But, suffice to say this weekend there will be a vlog to discuss some of the pitfalls out there in both vlogging and also blogging that all of my fellow creators need to know.

Most in fact all bloggers and vloggers are unpaid free advertising for brands.

Now let that sit there while you consider that reality.

In fact do so on this daybed and you will appreciate it even more.

I’ve decided I’m going to speak of the creators I blog for and the events and tell you why I appreciate them.

Today I’m going to tell you about Keira Raindale whose daybed I am blogging.

I’m a useless decor blogger. Honestly I know that. But this lovely lady gives me a go and doesn’t hound me to achieve monumental picture sales with over photoshopped results.

Just a good old fashioned business person who understands that even though I’m not so great, she still gives me a go. Because at the end of the day I try. And when I have the time I go that extra mile by adding a video to show my appreciation.

So my love today goes to the lovely Kiera Raindale.

Thelma is back with her idea of a tutorial.

She is over her COVID hair dilemma and looking like her normal sassy self.

Trevor hasn’t grown much, poor child, destined to stay a baby.

But he has a new stroller! Thelma has a new attitude. Between the two, life is back to normal,
