#SLIsolationWorkout Challenge

#SLIsolationWorkout Challenge

During the current crisis around the world, Thelma has made a decision she not only needs to keep herself fit but she also has to influence others to join her. Thelma is now a Social Influencer!!

She has created the #SLIsolationWorkout challenge.

Sharing on all social media to get all our virtual world self isolators into the challenge and doing fun things to smile and feel better.

So the challenge has no prize. It simply is about everyone coming together to bring a smile and show the world that there is more to life than our feeling sad and despondent about our situations. We are after all , ALL in this together.

Simply, create a video, photo, meme made in Second Life or even Sansar and tag it #SLIsolationWorkout

Lets have some fun and just make people smile and lift each other up rather than fall.

If you are feeling giving you can also donate to the  World Health Organization to help gain aid for people who are not as fortunate as many of us are to COVID-19 Response Fund in order to get essential equipment out.

Find charities in your local countries via your health organisations to aid toward donating blood and funds as well.

Remember, social distancing and make sure you follow the guidelines of washing hands, not touching your face when out in public and where you can wear a mask if you are in busy areas. Those are not hard to make yourself. It doesn’t matter how silly you feel, its better to be alive  than embarrassed.

Now enjoy the video…..

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….

The Autumnal Saturday plan

Autumnal Saturday

Im attempting today to use my pics from Flickr. So if the image doesn’t appear…then clearly I messed up and went about it the wrong way. If I have I will fix it up again.

Its Saturday and I am looking out the window and no it is not snowing. It is however very Autumnal and full of leaves of oranges, reds and browns falling to the ground now.

I am housework overloaded and done, showered and clean and smelling like a coconut as I have slathered myself in coconut body butter today. I could easily say that today I am rather edible. (In a smelly kind of sense)

My plans? Hell none! Today I am relaxing and either between pc or some random film on Netflix.

Its miserable outside and a perfect day for being in clean pjs and doing nothing.

I am not expecting anyone to come over, though if they do, they can enjoy the bliss of my tropical aroma and shiny scrubbed skin and delight in the pjs of todays attire.

However in a virtual world as you can see, I am fully dressed and absorbing the autumnal feel of the moment.

What are you doing today?

Checking out Basilique in Second Life

Checking out Basilique in Second Life

I forgot this destination Basilique existed as it has been a while since I visited and  I had foolishly just assumed maybe it is no longer.

Well you know what the saying is about assuming don’t you? When you assume you make a Ass out of U and ME.

So yes I will own that one because it does still exist and in fact there is more to it since it changed hands.

There is an amazing platform or rather feels like a whole new land in the sky. Second Life does amaze me many days. The things you can do. The places you can create.

Inara Pey did a great blog on this and it was while I was browsing and reading that I was able to be reminded of this gorgeous place.  So today I came and  visited and spent some time just languishing in its ambiance. By the way, do turn on your ambient sounds while there.

Enjoy……

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……

Do you wanna Funk with me!?

Do you wanna Funk with me!?

I had my anti social media for most of today until late this afternoon.

Can I just say how glorious it is to detach now and then from it and just be in touch with reality and what you can see and breathe around you?

Now that I am back. Lets get all social.

Madison Cubbage. Oh My God!!!!

Seriously that gal can dance! And I don’t mean just dance side to side . But seriously dance. Those moves!

I said to Jonny from Paragon Dance Animations that her little  real life person just seriously moves so well, its pretty mesmerizing really. I am in absolute awe.

I am developing such a love of dance, more so than I have ever had. Dont get me wrong I have always loved dance, but now, even more so.  Connecting with the people who make our jaws drop with their skills and being able to move like them (if only virtually) is totally awesome.

Each time Paragon are releasing dances, they are introducing real social influencers into our world. These people dance and are captured to bring to us their moves and in turn they get to see what we are all about.

Now to me that is awesome on so many levels.

Go watch…..

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.

Watch the video, no you must

Watch the video, no you must

You may be wondering why I have a real me pic on todays blog post?

Well because the video you are about to watch by Bernhard Drax is of how the rl we use and step into Second Life. So basically I thought it was fitting to be  the real me in this blog post. With the help of the Instagram filter called  Sutro. Because you can never look too summery.

It makes my tan stand out way better hahah.

Anyhow Im not going to ramble, just share and watch out for Drax sucking on the beer near the end. Makes me laugh every single time I see it.

Meet Beverley on ASMR “Self Love Thursday’s”

Meet Beverley on ASMR “Self Love Thursday’s”

Beverley is the ex call centre operative that has decided to join the ASMR community on YouTube.

Beverley lost her job at the Coolanjoey call centre when she asked the caller who wanted to be directed to the nearest debt  support group, if he wanted to breathe a little with her and think about it a little more.

In fact Beverley had a number of complaints about her rather laid back way of dealing with customer queries. Many couldn’t hear her, or complained that she made funny noises on the phone to them, singing “chakara, chakara” and asking if they felt better for it.

When Phil the manager of the Canteen pointed out to Beverley that’s she had a very soothing way about her , he suggested  she should join the ASMR community and set up her own YouTube channel.

Beverley believes that Thursdays are an important day to sit back and love yourself. In fact Beverley believes that every Thursday is a Self Love Thursday. Join Beverley and Love yourself!
