Harper

These jeans. I won’t lie. I think I’m in love. Whether regular or distressed, long or standard length, they cover all my requirements. I can dress them with a sweater (as above) or with something slinky and they still look lush. Often when I wear jeans, I like to go casual and this hair/heels combo just works for my mood today. Add a little gloss and perfume, and we’re good to go. Even if it means at the end of the night, I’m dancing on the bar ūüėČ

Music is food for the soul

I love music. Listening to it on my walk to work, in the car; if there isn’t anything to watch on tv I’ll pop a music channel on and knit to my heat’s content. It’s an integral part of my daily life. I adore attending live music events and am signed up to a bunch of newsletters. If I see a band I like the look of…that’s it. I’m there. I’ve been going to gigs by myself for years and I love the freedom that comes with it. It’s my experience, it’s my way of connecting with other like minded people and sharing something…tribal…with them. It touches my soul and nourishes it.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been DJing at one of my favourite clubs in SL, the Twisted Cork. It’s been baby steps so far but what excites me is the prospect of sharing something I love dearly with like minded people. It also gives the Boss a break from my incessant IMs asking for song requests. Now he can just tell me “play it yourself” and I can! He’s been my mentor through this experience and I’m enjoying learning a new craft. He jokes that they’ve ‘created a monster’ and maybe they’re right. But, somehow I don’t think so ūüôā

If you’re ever at a loose end, come listen for yourself: Tuesdays 1-2.30PM SLT – my 90 min rock block at the Twisted Cork.

Enjoy x

Glamorous Rock n Roll

Who said rock n roll needed to be grungy, dingy and grim? Not me! I’m excited because tomorrow I’m heading into London to see one of my favourite rock bands in action. Not only am I seeing them headline, I’ve managed to grab tickets for a small acoustic set before the main gig. So think of me tomorrow at 6pm, while I scream like a fan girl and then laugh at myself for my own giddiness!

Insert meaningful title here

One of the things I really enjoy about blogging in SL is the photography. I enjoy experimenting with windlights and shadows to see how it affects the ‘scene’ I have in front of me. Do I want it to look moody? Do I want a light effect with extra ‘gold’ or ‘blue’ in it? Do I want shadows or not? Sometimes it takes me a while to put the picture together; sometimes I have moments of quick inspiration and BOOM it’s there. That’s the one. I’m ready to publish. The ones I’ve enjoyed the most are where it’s been effortless….everything has flowed and I look back at it all and think “yes, this feels and looks right.” Bit like life, really.
