My Second Life


December 2016

Be Thankful For Life


As 2016 draws to an end it brings a time of reflection on the year past. We all know that 2016 has not been a great year, the world of entertainment has lost so many great people. It’s no surprise that many of us are wishing for this year to be done, and that the new one will bring better times.

Aside from the public sadness, some of us will also be going through personal crisis of our own. Some people choose to make these things public on social media and the like, and that’s fine for them, if it helps them come to terms with whatever they are going through, I see nothing wrong with that. Myself, I prefer not to do that. I am a very private person preferring to share my personal and real life issues with those people I’m closest to. It’s rare you find any posts from me concerning personal issues. Which is why I have found it difficult to write this post, but it’s something I needed to do.

A few months ago, myself and my real life partner, after a couple of years separation, decided to give it another go. We were getting on well, life was good and for me, I wasn’t lonely anymore. We made plans, Christmas was going to be so good, we were both happy. Then, just a few weeks ago, he became ill. After a trip to the doctors, and some routine tests, it was found he had a shadow on his lung. More tests and a biopsy later we had the diagnosis confirmed two weeks before Christmas. He has Lung Cancer. Safe to say our worlds have fallen apart. On the 21st December, just a few days before Christmas he had his first Chemotherapy session. There are no guarantees the treatment will work. We have been told this cannot be cured. It MAY be able to be controlled but we won’t know that yet, time will tell. Right now all we have is hope. But it’s a strong hope.

I have to embark on a long difficult journey. My Second Life time will be limited. To that end, I will be saying goodbye to a lot of my sponsors, just keeping a very few that I feel able to keep up with posting. Over the coming days I will be writing to those of you I need to say goodbye to. I do this with a very heavy heart.

So yes, whilst I too will be glad to see the back of 2016, I am dreading 2017 and what it will bring for me and my family.

I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year and hope that 2017 brings you everything you want it to.

Dreams Of Christmas Long Ago


Dreams of Christmas Long Ago
Frosty days and ice-still nights,
Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights,
Sound of sleigh bells in the snow,
That was Christmas long ago.

Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee,
Icy-window filigree,
Sugarplums and candle glow,
Part of Christmas long ago.

Footsteps stealthy on the stair,
Sweet-voiced carols in the air,
Stocking hanging in a row,
Tell of Christmas long ago.

Starry nights so still and blue,
Good friends calling out to you,
Life, so fact, will always slow…
For dreams of Christmas long ago.

Walking In The Snow


Let us walk in the white snow
In a soundless space;
With footsteps quiet and slow,
At a tranquil pace,
Under veils of white lace

I’m walking in the snow today but I’m not one bit cold, I have this warm and cosy outfit from CNZ to keep me warm. This is the Cami outfit in white and you can find it now at Marvelous Monthly until 25th December.

Snowball Fight!


For saying I don’t like snow in rl, I’m having so much fun with the virtual snow in second life this year! A lot of years ago I was hit in the eye by a snowball, and it really hurt! I think that has contributed greatly to my hate of the cold stuff! No danger of that happening here tho!


So, I have the Laced Back Top in Pink Stripe and the  Stringie Denim Skirt in Dark Dirty Blue from Eyelure to show you today. They both come in all the usual sizing. The top has this lovely laced detail on the back. You can find both pieces at round 144 of the Designer Circle  until 17th December.

My boots are the Neve boots from Slipper Originals. You can find these at the Frozzen Fair.  These gorgeous boots come with the socks and are laced all the way up the front. There is a HUD for colour change and you can change all aspects of the boot including the laces, socks and metals. Perfect for keeping your feetsies and tootsies warm!

This fun pose is from Image Essentials. No 4 in the ‘It’s Cold Outside’ set which you can find now at Winter Trend.

Santa Baby…


Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight


I’ve crammed lots of festive things into this post today. It’s like a great big festive fest!

First up we are at Marvelous Monthly. Marvelous runs till 25th December and right now you can get this lovely cute sexy outfit from Pink Ice Boutique. The Elena Mini Mesh Skirt and Top comes a variety of colours and fits. The skirt is insanely short so don’t forget to wear your undies otherwise you might show a wee bit more than you’d like to!

Next we go to Head Desk for this Lit Up Hat With Hair. It’s Santa’s hat, but with ladies hair! And the hat has coloured lights that flash. There are absolutely loads of colours to choose from of the hair, I’m wearing from the brownout HUD. This is available now at the Head Desk mainstore.

My oh so cute candy cane jewelry is from Glint. This is the Pearl Red Candy Cane set. It’s so pretty. Glint have some really awesome and very detailed pieces of jewelry and they also do custom work too, so if ever you need that special piece for a loved one, why not give them a try? I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.


My pose comes from Image Essentials and this is no 6 in the Cute and Coy set. Really cute poses. This pose set is a previous Pretty Things Showroom item, but do try the Image Essentials mainstore, if it’s not up there right now it won’t be long before it is!

My eyes are the Petrichor eyes from Mesange, I’m wearing no 14 from the Omega HUD. Now, I’m so late blogging these I’ll probably be in trouble. They were at Lost & Found but I think now they are at the Mesange Mainstore, if not I’m sure it won’t be long before they are. (Sorry Jadis!).

My lashes are from Vengeful Threads. The 2nd set of two I wanted to show you which are on offer now at The Chapter Four. These are the Yule lashes and OMG soooo cute! There are three different designs to choose from via the Hud. Please note these are for Catwa heads!

My nails are the Candy Cane Tips from Dark Passions – Koffin Nails, and they are the hunt prize in the Candy Cane 8 Hunt. I’ve popped the link to the hints page in the credits to help you a little. The prize will cost you 2LS but wow, what a festive bargain for this gorgeous fatpack!

My Red Shoes


I had pestered my mum for ages for a pair of red shoes, I was six or seven, and one Christmas I got a pair of shiny patent red shoes with little ribbon bows on the back of the heels. I absolutely loved those shoes and wore them ALL the time. Mum wouldn’t let me wear them for school though and one day I sneaked them in my bag and changed when I got to school. I thought I was so clever. Unfortunately I wasn’t clever enough to change back into my old brown school shoes before I got home! Well you can guess I was in trouble! My mum took those red shoes off me and said i couldn’t wear them for a week! I think it must have been longer than a week though, because when I finally got them back, they didn’t fit me anymore. I was heartbroken. I learned a very valuable lesson, never wear your red shoes when you shouldn’t!


Today I want to show you this vintage outfit from Snowpaws. The Ushanka outfit includes the hat, fur stole and dress. I’m wearing the Mink but there are rabbit, lynx, sable and fox also available. This beautiful outfit adds a touch of class to the cold season. It’s available now at the Snowpaws Mainstore.

My necklace comes from Slipper Originals, who usually make shoes, but this pretty necklace is available now at the Frozen Fair. The Eve Necklace you will find in a Bazaar Box outside of the Slipper Originals store at the event.

My very elegant pose today is called ‘Make Yourself A Priority’ and comes from LW Poses. you can get this one from the 2nd Level event which opens up on the 9th December.


Also from Slipper Originals are my shoes. These are the Lacey Pumps and are this months group gift at the Slipper Originals Mainstore. They come wiht a HUD that includes three colours, red, green and black. Fits Maitreya, Belleza and slink.

The River eyes from Mesange are available now as a mini-pack at Designer Circle 144th round. There are 5 colours included in this pack I’m wearing no 2 on the Omega HUD. If you want to see more colours of this eye head on over to the Mesange Mainstore, all 15 colours are available there.

Catching Snowflakes



What is now a dream
For a while it was real
And I can’t conceal that
I miss you

But our love was like catching a snowflake
As it reached our hands
It was ready gone

Though our case is closed
I keep chasing ghosts
Every time it snows
I see you

And I feel no cold
As you lend me your coat
through the pale white glow
I feel you

But our love was like catching a snowflake
As it reached our hands
It was ready gone
