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.

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.

Some days I feel like a change and I mix it up a little with my various avatars.
The day I took this photo I had gone to my Kalhene avatar and shot this photo. I have considered really I need to name her.
After all she at least deserves that . I haven’t settled on her “look” yet but I feel she is a Dolores.
Will she become a video character? Quite possibly if I can somehow get my voice to come up with another sound for her.
It’s not easy maintaining a vocal for my characters as often I flip into each character and have to remind myself which one I am.
Harriet, Thelma and Beverley I have an ability to revert to when I need to. Va Gina is still a hard one to be and something I’m still working on. It’s possible her vocals may change slightly as it’s harder to maintain her when I’m a naturally higher pitched person.
Often I’m a little nervous to talk about things and my one side of my head says keep it to yourself Liz. But then the other is a pretty open book and feels that a problem aired and shared is less of a problem.
Yes I have two little liz heads on my shoulders at all times. I’m not actually sure which is the smart one. But it doesn’t really matter.
Today I’m doing a little vlog about me. Well to be fair most are usually. Oh and excuse the sudden stream alerts. I’ve been trying to work out what’s wrong with my scheduling.
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. ❤️
Saturday and I’m still waiting for my week to end. The past week or so I have been pretty hectic with reality work and union stuff.
The virtual more or less squeezed in wherever I can. I’ve had to put a notice in my auto response to try let people know that and how I’m not able to kick back and relax when I log in.
Even though we are in a lockdown again (although you wouldn’t know it by the way people are behaving) I’m still making sure my social media free time is being a priority. That said weekends I tend to try and refrain from it where I can, but this weekend I have so much to catch up on and that includes watching others works or reading blogs I have missed out on.
Thus later today, in between filming and housework and such, I will sit down like my avatar and do some you tube watching and read a few blogs I have missed out on lately.
Sadly there are only so many hours in any given day, we need to use them wisely.
Im in the midst of also trying to improve my pc and removing things and juggling them around to see if it runs better. ie freeing up some space.
So this is how I feel about COVID right now. Armed and ready to kick its backside from here to kingdom come.
This is also how I feel about the stupid people who care only about their own selves and disregard others affected by this very serious thing going on. I’ll certainly be ready to send you to the other side of my street with my ammunition of water spray. (Clearly I’m not a violent person, but I could be tempted to water spray you!)
Today I found out how someone close to a friend cannot see her mother in a old aged home. but what’s worse is that all in the home are not allowed out of their room to mix.
If people tell me that’s ok then really there are no hearts inside them.
It’s bad enough being separated from your loved ones but to stay in your room and not able to socially bubble with those in the very same home. That’s just purely cruel.
It’s cruel of all the ignorant people who can’t give up their social lives for a bit to get ahead of this.
It’s not great being less physically social , it’s not great not being able to go out and let your hair down etc etc. But seriously are all lives that shallow that people cannot think beyond themselves?
I follow all the social distancing, even more strongly than I probably need to. But I do that because I want to help stop it’s spread.
I don’t want to be part of the problem. I don’t want my children to experience it and I don’t want their children to either.
So I’m ready here, Captain Isa, with my force of pretend people at Cocoon ready to blast this thing away.
Join the revolution, stop the conspiracy theories, just let’s all stop thinking about our social media a bit and start thinking about our lives too and those around us. Do something positive today.
I have always so many visions in my head about dance videos and how I wish them to appear. Usually traditionally I’ve always attached a story to them but these days the music track is the story by its sound and feeling.
These dances from Kayla Brenda are just really amazing.
Some of the movements are seriously out of this world. (No pun intended.) If I were in reality to try them I’m sure I’d probably break a hip or two and maybe spend months recovering in the bone unit because I flipped the wrong way!!
Every single time Jonny from Paragon introduces me to the next dancers I get excited and feel truly blessed to be part of all this. Bit like SL history in the making.
Kayla’s dances are certainly cutting edge and as I watch her real life videos I see myself replicating her virtually. We certainly have another world!
Heels dance style is a bold new trendy dance that combines the attitude and energy of hip-hop, jazz technique, and the sensuality and glamor of burlesque. Dancers always perform and practice dancing in high heels. In dance, floorwork refers to movements performed on the floor. In a social media world saturated by this trendy dance, Kayla stands out bringing a “wow” factor to her floorwork with a unique edge to her style — feats of acrobatics.
Originally danced to “Skin” by Rihanna. Tempo = 127.0 BPM
