Is this a snub at Second Life™ ?

At regular intervalls I get a newsletter from the architecture website archello.com. In one of its recent emails, or it can have been a couple of weeks ago... I get these newsletters on my work account and I have been off for three weeks and am working my way through the email backlog. It's nice... Continue Reading →

Fireplace Envy

Oh how I wish I had a fireplace in my real life apartment. Or maybe one of those Swedish tiled stoves or any other kind of wood burning stove. I realise that using these on top of central heating because it's "cosy" isn't environmentally friendly, but I would happily trade in the radiators in my... Continue Reading →

Room with a view

For those of us who enjoy Second Life™ photography, the Backdrop City sim is a godsend. It does what it says on the tin: it's a sim full of backdrops . From the main landing spot you can easily teleport to the themed platforms and find the backdrop that suits your needs at that point.... Continue Reading →

Trying to chill

Last Friday I got hit with the "what's the use" blues at work, sometime around noon. I got through the rest of the day by putting myself on autopilote and just getting on with things. I just find it so depressing that we haven't even come to the end of a global pandemic crisis yet... Continue Reading →

Valentine Shop & Hop

If with my previous post Valentine's Day was rapidly approaching, with this post it is getting near to the point where it will start banging at your door, insisting to be let in. I of course will meet it with my sincerest grumpy cat impression and tell it NO! But that doesn't mean I can't... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 7

I think we have finally come to the end of my tour of Castor Cottage, the (for me) huge house I decorated way back when I still did a bit of socialising in Second Life™. These days I tend to keep to myself and I also seem to have lost "voice" somewhere along the way... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 6

A long long time ago, a century at least, on a sim far far away (on another planet) I was renting the quite roomy Chilmark House by Brook Hill Living. I named it Castor Cottage and spent a lot time decorating it in an eclectic quasi classic style. In this episode of the series about... Continue Reading →

My little Retreat

Ever since I lost my large loft some months ago, I have been tinkering with the interior of the Apple Fall Paris Loft, now only available as a re-sale gacha on Marketplace. The nice thing about a small space like this, is that you can easily make it look rather lived-in. The prims you get... Continue Reading →

Productive lazy days

As Second Life™ is mostly amusement for me, spending half a day tinkering with a space to make it look cozy, will look like a lazy day to anybody looking in from the outside (real) world. Meh, whatevs. Who asked you?! You do you boo. Que sera sera. Know what I mean. Like, seriously though,... Continue Reading →

Castor Cottage – Episode 5

A long long time ago on a sim far far away I was renting the rather spacious Chilmark House by Brook Hill Living. I named it Castor Cottage and spent a lot time decorating it in an eclectic but mostly classic style. In this fourth episode of the series about Castor Cottage I'll take you... Continue Reading →
