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 !!

Giveaway update and COVID19

Giveaway update and COVID19

I say it all in the video. But basically in a nutshell I am rambling about the Give-away announcement I’m doing on Friday, hoping to stream live.

We shall see how that works as I’m a nervous Nellie with streaming and getting that right.

Also I’m having a COVID19 update because that’s the topic affecting everyone.

Book read Chapter 3 of the Gypsy and the Virgin will be this week, silence pending.

Oh and a reference to Read Meri

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.

Step up?

Step up?

My guilty pleasure is watching  the Step Up films and pretending in my imagination that is me.

I absolutely love the fantasy of the storylines and the dance sequences.

Contemporary dance to me is truly one of the most expressive forms of modern dance. It brings into it other forms of dance such as Jazz, ballet and the modern hip hop we know.

I absolutely love this pack that has been brought into Second Life by Paragon Dance Animations as danced by Madison Cubbage.

I cannot  tell you how much I love the way Madison moves and I stare at her and think wow, if only I could really do that.

I can though in Second Life but clearly not in the real world. I mean if I could in the real world, Madison would have to watch out for the competition.

I am lucky when I am making videos for Paragon Dance Animations, I get to always see the original influencers dancing in reality so I can match up the dance sequences for the Paragon videos. I feel like I know all their moves now and I feel fortunate for that opportunity.

Even more exciting to me, is that Madison Cubbage asks for her own copies from me. Now that’s a lovely feeling to know that she approves.

Now for my Isa version as the Paragon version you will see later when Paragon releases it using the virtual Madison.

Enjoy…..

Up the Suwannee!!!

Up the Suwannee!!!

Harriet has certainly returned home in style.

On the day she returned, she went out for the day with Loreal for a stroll. Upon returning home, disaster had struck.

Harriet’s boathouse had been blown to smithereens by a gas explosion  which sent hers and her neighbours boats up the Suwannee.

Harriet has been the last week sofa surfing on Isabelle and Thelma’s sofa……..

I am just on my way to bed right now.

I have had a totally shit show of a fortnight and feeling a lot at a loss and then Wynn invites me to an 80’s theme night at Esoteric. Now I have to say, I’m sure I was the only one who turned up in my leg warmers,. hahah

But it made my day to hang out and just relax and dance. Now I just want to keep dancing….

Hot and bothered or Menopause?

Hot and bothered or Menopause?

This has to be the shortest Coffee with Isa I will ever do. Mainly because the more I talk physically, the more I cough and then my chest feels like a truck hitting it.

Oh woe is me I have a summer cold.

So the question is it Menopause, hot weather or the bug?
