Its all about me

Its all about me

I decided that I would mix things up a bit for the weekend and pop out a Coffee Vlog. Usually it’s a dance video but to be honest, I’m not feeling it right now.

I like a bit of spontaneity in my life and so why not.

Also I am updating in the blog about a change that I did think hard about and thought eh what the hell. I need to make my tasks a lot smarter and slicker rather than place a dead weight on my shoulders for the sake of separating things.

If I don’t make any sense here, I certainly hope I do in the video.

Today has been a very different one for me. I saw no one in reality as I had a video to shoot for my curly girl. I need to send it off to them by Monday so today was spent honestly falling about laughing with myself.

Look let’s face it I’m no tutorial queen, doubt I ever will be. However today I tried to film a hair styling blog that was just so skewed and hilarious at the same time. It’s for their advertising. Christ, yes you will see it suddenly appear on social media at some stage. God help you all,

I just cannot pretend I’m an influencer, I just cannot. I’m simply me, awkward, giggling and without any script. Don’t give me scripts ever, I’ll improvise I tell you that now!

Do you think I script any of my character videos?

Hell no!

Orange is the new Halloween Black

Orange is the new Halloween Black

I decided Orange is the new black for Halloween. I should refer to it as amber but orange suits my need to have that label for the blog.

It’s Monday and the start of yet another week of our odd lives we are currently living.

I don’t know about many of you but I’m certainly questioning things a lot more about our daily lives pre Covid and the many things we used to do and considered a must and put up with.

I’ve questioned dress codes to do a job given let’s face it many have sat in their pyjamas for 6 months doing their jobs at previous or even better standards.

The fact that some would feel bullied and accepted that behaviour from people when in actual fact those bullies are no better than the rest of us. They have no right to impact anyone based on their ego.

So does how you dress matter? Not really. It’s just as a society we set ourselves all these rights of passage that we walk and accept as gospel. But I am sure I’m not the only one who is learning that’s a whole load of tosh.

There’s a whole load of tosh that I consider these days and ask myself why do I need to and remind myself how short life actually is. I’m the god of my own destiny and need to realise that. So do you all.

Seize your new Orange and sizzle this Halloween!

Anyhow enough of that.

Kawaii

Kawaii

Ok so Im in love with these dances. Seriously in love.

When Jonny and I were filming Paragon’s demo video a few days ago I wanted to pick up the wee  kawaii girls and pop them in my pocket.

Seriously adorably most cute.

I went for a little sexier mature feel to my video in red and black and music that’s as far from Kawaii as you can get. But yet I thought went quite well with the dance.

Hope you enjoy.

Balmy time’s

Balmy time’s

Should that be Barmy or balmy?

Depends on how you feel right now. I feel both but today I’m going to discuss barmy and the fact that apparently this weekend it’s ok for us to hug a person from another household. Jolly good.

So you can, invite another household into your “bubble“ but only one!

So here lies the dilemma. What if you house share? So then there is a inequality because only one other household can come into the bubble. So which housemate gets to choose?

Because if one housemate chooses (me), that denies the other housemate (her) of having her one other.

But then if we do one each then who is at high risk, me and my grandson because he has heart condition and me diabetes. So that’s what’s barmy. Did Boris and his lions even consider those pictures of home life? So sadly I’m going to likely not partake of this bubble idea for now as it makes no bloody sense to me. Because it’s unfair in house sharing situations.

Then of course next week you can go to the pub. Go figure. Also remembering that protests are now exposing people. Yeah I think I’ll forget it and watch this space a while.

I want to hear like New Zealand that COVID29 has abated.

Barmy!!!

Sansar and my new Avatar

Sansar and my new Avatar

So it has been a few weeks now since Sansar had its update and all avatars were upgraded to Avatar 2.0.

Many were not happy about the shape or skin and felt it was no longer them.

To be honest I had a similar feeling because I ended up wearing sunglasses to hide my very stoned looking eyes.

For some reason the colour I choose wasn’t doing it for me and I looked odd for that.

Also I like to have a little meat on my bones as well, enough to give a slender curve with boobies and a little butt.

I had started wearing a while ago an avatar by Cora Store which I loved but was deprecated  once the update was done.

I was totally thrilled today to see Cora has updated her avatars to now fit with Avatar 2.0 and I was able to get a redelivery of her.

I’m quite pleased to feel like old Sansar me again.

I am looking forward to when more creators start to play around with this and make shapes and skins etc.

Funnily I identify with my avatar in this look now and wouldn’t want to re create my Second Life me in Sansar at all. I may want the wild bobbed hair maybe but nothing else.

I feel Im back in my other home again.

Being home

Being home

There is something so amazing when you walk through your front door and close it off to the world and disappear into your own space.

Its called being home.

Designer Showcase doesn’t usually have décor and when this popped up in my blog box today I thought you know what, I had to do it straight away.

I was going to do a Coffee with Isa from it and will do , but today I just wanted this photo without any humans in (well pixels) and just to admire the look of it and wishing when I turned to look at my living room in the real life my sofa was like it.

Dont get me wrong I love my living room, and I love my sofa, but at times don’t you wish you could click a hud and just change it like you do in virtual life to something new depending on your mood?

I did not move one thing from rezzing this. It laid and I was quite pleased at how it looked in its display that I left it as it was and added nothing else. Frankly it doesn’t need anything else in this scene.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas season

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas season

I’m sat here on the sofa with my 4 clementines and a cup of hot chocolate. A list of Netflix Christmas films in front of me and a blanket.

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed as I looked at the calendar today and realised that there’s not long to go till Christmas and I likely need a new Christmas tree.

The one I have is up in the loft, where the rain was coming through before the repair this week.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t care to be honest.

However there is a little person who Christmas still has all the magic and I want to make sure when he walks through my front door next Saturday, he is greeted by a magical tree with promises of surprises.

So I’m going to have to wave a wand this week and transform the living room into a magical room. A corner even.

As the season has started you will see all the Christmas party outfits come out and the preparations for celebrations this month

The heat

The heat

Can I just say how hot it is feeling here at the moment. My apartment is like a sauna and despite fans, nothing is changing.

Honestly you walk onto the balcony and its like I’m sure 10 degrees cooler.

So today I spent most of it out and about.

My brother picked me up and said  lets go to Dymchurch beach.

Now he hasn’t really been but his good old trusty sat nav was leading the way.

After an hour of driving and me wondering why we were still in Kent, I popped on my iphone sat nav and had a look.

His sat nav had taken us some obscure way and we were indeed headed to Dymchurch, but Dymchurch garage!!! An hour away from the beach in the wrong direction!! ha ha

So we then decided at that rate we would spend all day in the car and turned back and headed to a lovely waterfront pub along the river in Kent and just sat there for the day having lunch and drinks and just enjoying the day.

My dreams of sea and sand dashed but still a lovely day none the less.
