Winter Shop & Hop

Winter Shop & Hop

Ready to winter shop and get new shoes because you have walked too much?

The Annual winter Shop & Hop in Second Life starts Thursday 10th for the Second Life Birthday Group Members from 9 am SLT. It then officially opens to all the public at 9am SLT on Friday 11 December..

There are 180 Second Life Content Creators participating.

There are 9 regions for you to visit with 20 stores per region.

All stores will have a free gift for you to nab as well as discounts from 20% upwards. I have seen so many discounts averaging around 50% which lets face it, if you are on a budget like me, makes sense. Get all your Christmas shopping done whilst saving a few lindens at the same time.

  • Second Life Birthday Group will get early access to the event on December 10th from 9am SLT onwards.
  • Event is open to the public from December 11th from 9am SLT to January 3rd.

You may want some links to all of this winter shopping craziness.

The official landing page is here when the page opens for you to visit all landing slurls will appear. Until then you need to wait for the Lindens to let you in. Maybe some bribes?

Meanwhile I would get some good comfy shoes on, grab your backpack and Lindens purse. Last but not least a good tip is to lower your graphic’s down and draw distances so you can actually move . Another tip if you are on firestorm viewer is to go to World at the top and scroll down and tick “show friends only”. I find the less people I see the more view there is . Shop like a stealth ninja I say! So its time to prepare for the shopping madness and prepare.

The dark matter

The dark matter

Strange things happen at night when you are asleep during the Hallowed month.

All those who are laid to rest come up to celebrate and dance upon their graves. In readiness for the one day when the moon opens up and lets all of them free for the night to wander the streets of Hallowed lands. Dancing their way into Halloween.

She rises and seizes the moment…….

Thank God it’s Friday

Thank God it’s Friday

I love giving snippets of new life at mine and Rosie Helendale’s new joint sim. Namaste in Los Angeles.

Be it a picture or a video, the snippets are small.

Amazingly 3 out of 4 rentals have already gone and people moved in, before we have even opened.

Now that’s quite something.

I really cannot wait to share with you.

In fact since this picture was taken, so much has changed.

We are happy with the little world we have created and what will be a lovely small community to hang out in.

Rosie has done the majority of the landscaping and I have just thrown in the materials and houses . Between us we are now landladies to a new home that will be both for pleasure and residence.

So while I lazily sip my tea on the patio, I bid you a Thank god it’s Friday!!!

Feel the burn

Feel the burn

Do you feel it?

Seriously I do. I burnt my avatar in this photo.

I gave her super 40 degree suntan and then took the photo!

No really. I did.

I’m waiting for Thursday as I then have 4 days off work.

I’m hoping for sunshine and balcony tanning.

My Ideal way to spend summery mornings. Lazing in the morning sunshine and reading some trashy novel.

However it won’t be trashy as I’m getting into DH Lawrence “The Virgin and the Gipsy”.

Yes, there is more to life than constant tech. Plus in order for me to read it on my channel I should at least get to “feel” the story.

I have plans of reading and sunshine. A little attack at household chores and some tech exploring worlds.

Lots of films in between and Ice cream.

Ice cream is key.

For some odd reason since Covid lockdown started my housemate and I have got into vegan tubs of ice cream. I hasten to add I’m not vegan. I’m diabetic and finding alternatives to my sweet tooth.

A total abstinence is too much for my mind in this time, so I indulge in ice cream twice a week.

Tonight it’s coconut milk one I think.

I’ll let you know how that pans out.

In the meantime Designer Showcase starts its May round today and Artizana has released this dress. Oh I need to add it has a hud. Lots of choices and a pretty good cut on my body.

*UPDATE*  Now added the video below. Have you ever tried to record something but for love or money the quiet you need is not there?

That’s been me trying to record my Chapter 1 of DH Lawrence story “The Virgin and the Gipsy”.

Honestly I cannot record in front of someone giggling away.

I long for silence to do these things. Last night I recorded it but it sounds like I was in monotone and trying to rush the audience to the finish line.

Since COVID19 I struggle to get private quiet times to do my recordings but they are few and far between.

Specific recordings of audio like reading require slowly and with breath pauses. But last nights seriously was me on hyper speed.

So back to the drawing board on this later today.

I’ll update the blog with the link when done.

#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…..

Knickers in a twist

Knickers in a twist

I was watching the news this morning and saw that there are now talks of recession because of this whole Coronavirus malarkey.

I’m not sure what to make of it all to be quite honest.

If you believe everything in the media you would certainly go absolutely bonkers.

I’m currently using common sense. That’s the best I can do and loving a good meme or two. Let’s face it if we can’t laugh at ourselves then we really are a sad species.

Have I got my knickers in a twist?

That would be telling and right now I’m going to sleep as it’s midnight.

Good night world.

So its Friday night and what am I doing? Writing this blog.

I just realised today in many ways I should be on some hot date somewhere, sipping wine and flirting like a floozy.

In actual fact I am in my living room and too shattered to even think about getting dressed up and stepping out the front door.

Frankly what a week!

So I share with you another moment in my playing dress up life which is something I do love to do and that is dress up and show you. Still though, wish I had a date.
