Mood: Creative Again


I haven’t done a mood post in so long for its always been filled up with my personal diary and five likes for the week. Today I’m switching back to this heading because I have been on a creative streak the past week and a half. Whether it is on Minecraft creating beacons, mini forts for my journey and even train lines to go down mountains easier or having four folders consisting of four different stories including Ame’s chronicles.

The other three stories have come from my notebooks of random plot lines that I have jotted down during my high school years, if the idea looks interesting enough again or I can evolve it to something new, I will create it. The stories I have are an Alice in Wonderland rendition, Mistaken Identity- a college girl who desires something more than studying and the Seven Realms- an original fantasy story about a half Dragon/elf king ruling a planet.

I use IMVU to socialise and Second Life if there is something cute in a current event that I want to buy but other than that, my SL days are numbered as I’m becoming less meh over it unless the boyfriend is around but he and I moving into reality very soon ๐Ÿ˜€

Diary: The First Week


Entering the second week without parents and so far my sister and I seem to going just fine, it is giving us a bonding experience as siblings while also attending to the needs of our fluffy ginger ๐Ÿ˜€ I still feel guilty of leaving Skitty on his own when I work the PM shift but make sure he gets plenty of love when it is my days off.

Returning to work tomorrow morning and glad I only got four days again this week before another 3 days off but giving you my past likes for this week.

  • Finally got my Seraphina Picquery wand from Fantastic Beasts, collected at Zing pop shop yesterday
  • I ordered two temporarary cherry blossoms tattoos on Yes style, unleashing my inner Ame Hayato
  • Been on IMVU a lot recently, enjoying hanging with my international girlies
  • No parents means I can eat whatever I want for dinner ๐Ÿ˜›
  • Been watching Disney classics before bed in particular Cinderella and Robin Hood

Diary: Staying Occupied


Parents flew out to Philippines today and will be away for two weeks while visiting both dad’s mum who is living in the southern province and his younger sister and husband who have retired there also. I still got the jitter bugs inside me only because this time last year I was scared when I heard a loud bang outside my house at 4am, so scared that I ended up calling my work and getting one of the night auditors to check my house for me.

Here is hoping for an uneventful two weeks without the presence of the adults. I’m sure I’ll be fine, I got Ange, Adam and Skitty of course ๐Ÿ˜›

  • I lost two more kilos, don’t ask how I’m doing it but it’s staying off
  • Going to watch Beauty and the Beast with two work colleagues on 21st March
  • Kitten D’amour’s ‘Suspicion’ collection is divine!
  • I bought Barbie: Video Game Hero, its very ‘Wreck it Ralph’ but sad no new movie trailers were released
  • Only two months (roughly) until Shadowhunters returns to tv with 2b ๐Ÿ˜€

IMVU: Days of Glory




The past week or two I have made a resurgence in the virtual world known as IMVU, it was the place where I spent most of my young adulthood post high school. It was where I met my best friend in the U.S, Katie as well as and a handful of great girl friends. It is also where I roleplayed with multiple characters, had relationships, made enemies but overall had fun.

Majority of my friendship group have all moved on into reality and only a small collection of us are left and log on at random times, I been having a decor mood lately and IMVU has no prim limits when it comes to decorating your individual rooms and though you have to “dot hop” to get around the rooms and they aren’t all connected, it’s still fun to work with.

Realising that the manor I had put on public back in 2014 was too dark for my tastes and my style was much more light hearted and very pink nowadays, I changed this NYC apartment that originally belonged to my artistic roleplay character Elizabeth James of East Highland High to make it my own.

A place to hang out with the girls whenever we all sync up and are logged on all at once and can play tunes, dance and have fun. So far this week it’s been myself, Katie, Elie and Mez with random appearances from my boyfriend Aum showing up as well. They all love the very detailed room but I will say this right now, some bits were a pain to work on.


My bedroom upstairs on the second floor, this room wasn’t so hard to decorate, a lot of the frames and wall art could go on each wall where I wanted them to, if they weren’t angled right they could just be turned to face the right way. My room in reality has a lot of stuff in it, it is what I call organised chaos and though I certainly do not have the paddle rack or St Andrew’s Cross I definitely got the plushies, cute lights and books/paper everywhere.

It is my favourite room to be in when logged on IMVU, but my second place where I usually go AFK is at the below picture.

One level down below the big tv and gaming station (plus three big bears) is this small corner with the cat rug ๐Ÿ˜› I realised I did not have enough room in the bedroom upstairs to set up a blogging desk like I have in my cottage on Second Life so made something much smaller and more cosy on ground floor. Got a virtual Skitty, laptop, Godiva milkshake and M&M’s to call this cosy corner my little space when I am AFK and out in reality.

The theme of pink, black and white is a re-occuring trend though bright colours stand out more in this New York city apartment, but one of my favourite pieces that I loved adding is the fashion and beauty aspect.

The giant closet with make-up box and a Minectaft library cube for kicks as well as shelves full of shoes, bags and let’s not forget those thigh-high leather boots, that was my inner Ame Hayato coming out when I added those in. Adding in a vanity table full of make up that is at the top of the stairs plus a shelf for snapback caps and more make-up/nail polish stashed on top of the drawers.

The added Japanese fashion and anime magazines were a bonus, three mannequins and of course all the soft toys a girl could dream of! This is my comfort zone when logging on but also a place of entertainment and socialising with friends.

Diary: Another good week


Working three days only this week and having this weekend off is perhaps why I been so relaxed and it’s reflecting on my Fitbit’s resting heart rate ๐Ÿ˜› A lot of positive notes to comment upon and good memories both at work and at home. I will been sharing my top 5 as always for this week below;

  • My parents and I have booked our flights for Europe trip in August!

Diary: To my Birthday


I been working AM shifts the past two days and will be working AM again tomorrow on my birthday, no I do not feel anywhere close to 29 and still feel like a hyper 21 year old girl ๐Ÿ˜› I have also been going for walks with my mum and her work friend the past 3 nights, the back of my knees hurt when I wake up!

Diary: Staying Cool


It is so stinking hot! Like ridiculous at 40 degrees, I am born in the Summer but as the years have passed I have grown to enjoy cooler and Autumn weather much more. The weather in either New Zealand or England is more favourable for me to handle. It is especially annoying when my uniform is of that stiff fabric that you can’t breathe in and being at the front desk of a hotel, I have to wear bloody stockings too! Eww…

This weekโ€™sย 5 likes;

  • Got a facial and shoulder massage on my previous days off
  • Disneyland on Minecraft brings back wonderful memories of it in reality
  • I got 3 editted pics being done by amazing artists
  • My other half in England said he would happily take me to Pemberley/Lyme Park anddd watch Cursed Child ๐Ÿ˜€
  • My sister’s engagement party this weekend

Diary: Into 2017


I realised that I have not posted a personal entry not since December 19th last year, I did post a Christmas greeting and my New years resolutions but haven’t posted current likes or what is going in my life currently. Well to be honest, not much. I had to work New years eve and day then had a couple of days off, we also got sports teams currently in-house at work so very quiet on the front desk. Other than that, the first week of 2017 has been very chilled.

This weekโ€™sย 5 likes;

  • I got Netflix and I’m hooked! My Little Pony especially after much insisting from my bestie Katie
  • Shadowhunters Season 2 is back on and Episode 1 was intense ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  • Made new friends in a BDSM group on Facebook, they all baby girls but we have common ground
  • Bought myself new jewellery from Mooii, two earrings and a layered choker
  • I am 35 followers away from having 1000 on my Flickr

LL Note: 2017 Aspirations



** Seems every year when I write up resolutions, its all the same…is that a good thing?ย **

Two days to go and I seriously can’t wait until 2016 has ended, not that I have so many happy memories and good times that have occured this year but all the fighting and all the celebrity death including today of Princess Leia/Carrie Fisher! Yeah I’m not too happy with this year at the moment. Onto my list of resolutions and see if that weight goal I can actually achieve

  • Destination: Europe! Parents are aiming for a month holiday and just a taste of what it is all about, mum has already mentioned Dubai, London, Paris and Rome while stopping over in New York City and LA again ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Meeting my other half (finally!) again parents want him to come here first before we meet up with him in London โค
  • Promoted to Team leader at least in work, I am currently being performance managed by my assistant managers but my front office manager wants to see me move up in the ladder before her contract concludes end of 2017
  • Lose weight! Start off small this time maybe and be more active, I have lessened my sugar intake so that counts as something right?
  • Focus more on reality than run away into the virtual universe, I have been doing this escapism into virtual lands for the past 8 years now whether it is IMVU or Second Life, a year away from being 30 I shouldn’t be doing what all the other 18hrs+ people are doing online when they can do something much better in the real world!

All these goals can be accomplished if I put time and effort into it, I know I can put my heart into anything I have seen it be done before, I just need to keep motivating myself to achieve them all to the end.

LL Note: Happy Holidays



** Merry Christmas readers and followers!ย **

I have written this during the day of the 24th December before my big Christmas eve lunch with mum’s side of the family and before the annual Noche buena with dad’s side where we count down to midnight and open presents.ย This time I have put my blog on scheduled time and hope that it will actually post when it clocks over to midnight, so when you all read this, I will be at my aunts house having a fun time with family and my bestie Mei is coming along for the ride too!

This year again I have been very lucky being in the hotel industry, my front office manager has given me not only the 24th off but I also got Christmas and Boxing day off too! We will be having a small Christmas dinner at our house on the 25th and so far no plans yet for the 26th but it said to be very hot on that day so we might to the beach (or so dad has suggested to us when he found out I had it off xD). I hope each and every one of you enjoys it with your family, your friends, your partner, your fur babies and stay safe if you are travelling to homes or going crazy with the booze.

For those are already on holiday until the new year, you lucky ducks! Celebrate the new year for me, because I have Christmas weekend off I gotta work New years eve and day, will have my own mini party when I finish at 11pm though ๐Ÿ˜›

Enjoy this festive long weekend everyone!

Edit on Christmas Day: So the Noche buena didn’t last long because all the kids were put to bed early because Santa was coming! My bestie Mei didn’t come either but she is coming over tonight for the simple Christmas dinner with my parents and grandma.
