As the mist comes in

As the mist comes in

I was going to release another blog today but I looked out my living room window to see the mist hovering over my lake and thought today was a perfect day to fit this in.

It took all my efforts not to pop myself in the photo, but I was good I refrained!

That aside in the credits I still decided to pop down what I was wearing. Not much. After all. You should know I was in reality in my pyjamas and in my SL running around too less.

The truth is, unless I’m actually blogging or planning to meet up with anyone, I’m often found hair down, no make up and just my undies on. After all, when you’re home, why not!

I rather like this shelter with my tropical setting. A place to hide when the rain starts falling. Apparently it may. But not in SL unless I command it. Sadly reality I have no power to control the weather.

I would command snow!

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

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.

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.

How does your garden Grow

How does your garden Grow

How does your garden grow? Well I am guessing at the moment rather well given many people are at home and finding things to do.

How are your bushes?

I personally live in an apartment with a lake view and a balcony so mine is rather spiffing.

My garden is preferably inside and my apartment has a jungle feel with 3 trees in the living room. I have always had a thing about inside plants wherever I have lived. On a big scale I might add.

They help to make me feel calm and more in a peaceful mindset.

But if I had a garden I would consider this idea just as it appears in the picture.

Of course the reality of would look way better than my attempts at décor pictures.

Even in world it looked way better than my picture attempt. Still in Beverley’s video below you do actually get to see the lovely MLaw hanging chair and Raindales Gachas and can appreciate it a little more.

The Saturday Blues

The Saturday Blues

Saturday blues.

I haven’t got them but I know a few of my friends are currently struggling at the moment.

I’ve managed to do all sorts of housey things in the real world. Even changed the bedding and stroked the cats.

Made incredibly ridiculous videos about self isolation for my friends and basically just a normal day for me.

I’m used to being alone and occupying myself.

Boredom has never really been a word I’ve used.

Though it may come to my vocabulary on days of work because we are restricting what our roles are doing and not calling people.

That I may struggle with, as despite my loner ways, I love talking.

It’s part of my psyche and keeps me motivated and part of life.

Time will tell.

In the meantime I’ve been compiling a few videos and will see how I narrate these given I have not done that in front of the housemate as yet.

This could be interesting!!!

In the meanwhile our virtual worlds are actually getting more traffic as we spend more time participating within them.

So if you are going to decorate your garden with something for you and your loved one why not trying out the zeros Hiding place.

It has some lovely couple animations within it.

Currently $60L on the MP!

Home isolation

Home isolation

I am guessing many of you are on isolation from the work place as you start working from home.

Maybe you are  isolated as someone is showing signs of illness or maybe like me you have underlying conditions considered a risk.

I already have  for a year worked from home. I am therefore quite adept to isolated working as it suits my inner wierdo as well as my health.

Many of us are extremely lucky to have space for our isolation. A balcony, garden or courtyard we can disappear into and breathe the world in and stretch.

Spare a thought for those  who don’t have the luxury of balcony or a garden. Isolation is within 4 walls and can be pretty lonely for anyone alone or pretty anxious and fraught for those living on top of each other.

Encourage some virtual social networking if you can to enable those people who have no one to talk to and would love some company, encourage them to join us in our virtual worlds whichever ones you are in.

For the current future this is our lives until the madness dissipates and we may as well make the best of it. Its such a strange time and scary one, but we dont have to sit with that weighing on us, we can choose to just make the best of our current situations and find things to occupy our minds and time.

Spend more time with those you live with, bake, play games, discuss dreams and ambitions.  Make video memories and take photos.

Be positive and laugh. For the most part, laughter is a free medicine and you helping with that smile on someone’s face, is the best gift you can give.

On another note, be like me and bask in the sunset and feel the beauty of life.

This is the first time I am blogging for M Law Designs and as we know im not an overly huge décor blogger but I want to get better. Of course I prefer people in a photo and so as per usual for me most of the time I had to throw myself on the day bed and wear a outfit from IM Collection….

Living

Living

My garden has changed since this picture. The lovely couch and harp are still out there but I’ve gone a little nuts with my home.

All will be revealed at some stage, if I don’t change my mind before!! Designer Showcase and Raindale. Deets in the credits below.

On another note. I hope you are all ok and looking after yourselves.

We are facing a wierd time in history and bombarded by so much news that we really don’t know what is best to do.

Personally I’m taking the approach of trying not to become obsessed with the situation but at the same time, exercising care and making sure I am not placing myself in situations that could make me carry anything.

I have my own underlying health issues, but so do a heck of a lot of people. Remember, underlying health issues are the ones you cannot easily see.

It’s not just old people, it’s any age that can have one.

My grandson is 4, to be 5 in July. Those that have been with me a long time know Mason’s story.

There are many children like him out there, who come though heart operations but you still have to remember, it’s not always visible.

Children are not immune. Don’t assume that.

Be sensible, don’t panic. But I agree make sure you have food in your cupboards, but for goodness sake, don’t forget the elderly who can’t run to the stores or the poorer people around you and the homeless people.

Donate to food banks!!!

Look out for them. Put your hand in that shopping bag and share.

Snow homes

Ok if I really could have a home in reality like this I would.

Do you think Keira Raindale could possibly build me one and box it so I can Rez it here in reality ready for the snow?

Ok I’m hearing the sounds of “Liz get a grip”.

But what if?

Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it.

Goodnight.

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……
