Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

Breaking news with Harriet

Breaking news with Harriet

Harriet Parker has her own studio now since the BBBc has provided her with accommodation.

She has news to report on her show and today it’s all about Linden Lab and sadly Harriet is a little disappointed. Despite the exciting news there is one person she believed should have been featured. Her beloved favourite person.

Harriet gives a shout out live on air to Linden Lab to action her request. The question. Will they?

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.

Vlogging stuff

Vlogging stuff

Most know I struggle with doing things the way others do. Because frankly that’s not me. I’m also a bit OCD in that respect.

Sure it would improve my views etc but eh I’d be selling myself down a river and not being true to my own creative self. After all whatever I do, ultimately is because I enjoy it.

Yes sure sometimes I sit and think I wish people noticed what I do and all that. But then I’m not really the type of person who ultimately wants to be in the crowd and be noticed. (Well only for the right reasons.)

But I ultimately do always want to be better at what I do. Don’t we all?

I’m more a quiet soul in many respects and actually value my handful of supporters who genuinely do engage the madness I write or speak via YouTube. Hence the main gift on my 2k subscribers list was so specifically geared toward acknowledging just that.

I am me and I prefer to move in my own direction. In saying that I realise that when doing character vlogs for events people just don’t pick up that where my characters are yakking that they are saying the outfits etc come from. So in order to acknowledge that I’ve decided to still include in my character videos but also do a couple of videos each month showcasing in the style I’m previously known for.

I will be doing this for each event on YouTube and we will see how it goes. I’m seriously not going to do let’s go shopping videos as previously said in one of my vlogs as I’d rather stick hot pokers in my eyes!

I mean it, I would rather.

So I’d be interested to know what you think of the following format and if that fills your boots with joy?

Don’t just stand there looking

Don’t just stand there looking

I don’t speak of my background but my mother was a result of a mixed race love affair. In South Africa. In times of Apartheid. Her mother married an afrikaaner and she was born. But she was noticeably quite different.

But she took on being the “white” persona.
She herself became racist. Go figure!!
She met my father who was a result of a Jewish family and then they eventually relocated to Australia. But in between my childhood years I lived in South Africa and Australia. I saw apartheid and experienced what it was like to never be sure where we were “allowed”.  I was in the middle, never comfortable in the white lane or the black lane. I grew up hating my heritage.
When apartheid was abolished and after spending my majority of childhood in Australia and loving people just for being humans no matter their colour or race or religious beliefs, I’m honestly so sick in my stomach that Today in 2020, this absolute sick human thought process still exists! 
Black lives matter, white lives matter, ALL lives matter!!
You can’t sit back and say and do nothing. You can’t just sit back and say “I hope it gets sorted out”. 
Stop sitting there and placating. Human lives matter. Speak up, do something. 
Show the bigots and racists, mysoginists and all others that we will not tolerate them. 
It’s 2020, It’s time they caught up and got themselves educated. 
Violence doesn’t work. History has taught us that.
Use intelligence, use education, use voice. Vote well!!!Protest peacefully and use your voice!!

Squatters rights

Squatters rights

Harriet moves from place to place after Isabelle moved her out due to COVID.

Harriet has found out from Jonathon about the squatters rights, to squat.

Harriet being the naive person she is, sees a post on Facebook by the talented Sienna Foxdale about a rez build.

Sienna has decorated a sky home throughout and is offering this as a service to purchase. Harriet quite fancies that rather lush looking sky home and makes a run for it, sneaking in and making herself at home.

Sienna Foxdale is completely unaware till she sees the video!

Will Sienna call the Squatters police or will she smile knowing that Harriet will have to leave anyhow as she forgot to bring L’Oréal the fat cat.

If you are interested in this build message Sienna Foxdale inworld. It’s $5 k to Rez for you and if you are like me useless in inside decor then it’s a brilliant idea.

Took a risk

Took a risk

So let me tell you.

I broke social distancing this afternoon.

I invited a friend over for a social distancing cup of tea and catch up in my apartment.

I’m contemplating did I do the right thing or did I not?

Short answer yes!! We social distanced none the less.

It’s not viable to impose isolation on human beings especially if they live alone like my friend. Nor frankly in my books is it ok to have a stranger in your home to do the cleaning but not a friend? Figure on that one.

Boris and his tag team came out with that gem! Next time I’ll get her to do my hoovering! How’s that?

Before you go sounding off on your high horse please be aware the only person at risk in this scenario is me. Therefore I made a choice. I chose to accept the risk because I cannot continue to live without taking a few.

I’m a social being in reality when not being a loner. I need interaction and I’m damn glad I had some.

I want to see my children. But I won’t now as I am aware it’s best now I take a few weeks before I risk again.

Let’s be fair how many of you have ?

I’ve lasted around nearly 3 months (I had to self isolate early) and frankly I’d rather stab myself with hot pokers in the eyes than berate myself right now.

I feel happier and will again isolate a few weeks before taking another risk.

So as I sit here contemplating. My Sunday is far more happier and my mind feels good. Maybe this work week will be a better one, despite the knowledge that I can see austerity around the corner. I’m back in the union by the way.

You know me, where there are people to support, I can’t turn my back to that. Old habits die hard.

By the way, don’t I look rather sassy today?
