Musings:

Life is a merry-go-round – up and downs, swings and roundabouts, peak and troughs – blah blah blah!   Times that by 100 and you have SLife – it’s non-stop, full on and whirls around even faster.

On all SL Social Media platforms, one topic has stood out regarding a disagreement between x 2 designers – regardless of if you’re interested it or not – it’s there on my SL Facebook and it seems that everyone has an opinion – as always.

I scroll by – personally, this isn’t what my SLfb is about and am not in a position to be judge/jury or executioner – so, yeh, I scroll on by and look at the pretty shiny new things I can buy or terrorise my friends on messenger – or, and mainly, look at the amazing talent that’s out there.

Kess Crystal and I are new(ish) friends and both being fellow brits we found we have similarities in both worlds and have just clicked – almost every other day the phrase ‘OMG we are so alike’ is uttered!   Kess has created a breathtakingly beautiful sim, Take Heart, with help of her friend Sady which is not only a photographers  dream it’s also a beautiful spot to chill out with friends, explore or, for the more romantically minded, take your loved one(or ones – this is SL after all!) for a date – it’s stunning so please, take some time to check it out.

Moral of this story is:  Don’t get caught up in other peoples crap!  RL deals us way too much of that so why would we want to have it in our SLives?   Take Heart  (see what I did there!!) and appreciate all the good stuff that’s out there – all the amazing creators regardless if they are just starting out and can only make a flower box (like me!!)or those that completely blow your socks off- in any genre around the grid.   #TakeHeart #NoCrap! #WorshipCreativity

Belt Up, Betty! Goddess...
 Musings:

So, when you’re not having a good day or good week – or year even – what do you do to make yourself feel better?   What makes you smile?   For me,,a quick fix is a pamper!  I rarely spend money on myself but this month I decided to go all out – get my nails done, nice hair cut and some colour put through.  However, instead of going for the ‘quick trim’ that I had planned too – I had a complete style overhaul!  I went from having nice shoulder length brown curls to very short geometric style cut with balayage blonde colour put through. To say it’s a complete change of appearance for me would be understatement but, you know, I felt like a million pounds!!  A Goddess as I walked out of the salon doors.

Moral of this story is – treat yourself, be kind to yourself.  You don’t need to pay a fortune like I did for major pamper session – just give yourself a treat once in a while – whether it be a new lipstick, aftershave, manicure or full on make out – be kind to you !   Can be as simple as having a nice hot bath or treating yourself to that fabulous bottle of wine or curry takeaway.    Be kind, enjoy and treat yourself.  #giveyourselfabreak
