I just wanted to say a fond farewell to all my friends at Beau Belle. It was not without a little sadness that I emptied my house and my shops and said goodbye to Beau Belle today. I have decided after a great deal of soul searching to leave Second Life. I will miss my friends very much, but I think after five years it is time to move on.
There are many things on which I will look back on with great happiness, and my friendships are definately the greatest of those. I will miss my… Continue

It might seem strange to be an owner of Beau Belle, and to use this website to write an empassioned blog about the passing of another sim. But for reasons that I hope will become clear, Hallelujah was much more than just another sim. For one reason without Hallelujah, Beau Belle simply wouldn't exist. And I dont just mean the fact that it was a huge inspiration for what Bluebell and I built here, but we would never have met at all, as we met on the North Wind as it floated… Continue

I was so tempted to call this post "the first meeting of the meglamaniac society" just because of the photo, but the truth is so far from that. It was an interesting meeting, six voices all needing their place will always be a challenge but I know that the egos in that room are so small that the process will always be manageable.
The battle between passion and ego is historically a challenging one, but the shared goal has made this… Continue

I am so happy to tell you all that one of the most popular and missed shops on Beau Belle is back!!!! Wild at Heart, is a delightful flower shop, the prettyness and absolute Englishness (or should it be Scottishness) of it is sooooooooooooooooo Beau Belle, we missed it so much. You can absolutely smell the musty mix of florals and soil as soon as you walk in there, It was built by the immensly talented Ruby Quality, but donated to Beau Belle to help contribute to sim running… Continue

This has been a very interesting time for me and I suspect for Bluebell too, Beau Belle has been in existence for over a year now, and it has seen many changes, people coming and going, and now we have the wonderful Stephs with us at the helm, a fantastic steadying hand, when both Bluebell and I can be very close to this sim as it has been built from our very heart and soul. We both rely on him so much, probably too much, and I… Continue

Does a thousand pictures paint a million? We have reached a thousand pictures on our ning site! To celebrate this I have changed the settings on the main page so that instead of showing the most recent photos, it shows random photos from the whole collection, so you can see some of the older shots other members have posted, maybe even before your time here, enjoy. Thank you to everyone who contributes images and words to keep this site ever changing and vibrant. We love you… Continue

Firstly Halloween goodies for you all, and what is more they are free, so grab some pumpkins and get in the spooky spirit.
Then some new shoe styles. I particularly like the strappy brown shoes, there is a pair in pink too which I am already wearing, and new styles in the offiing.
These silver buckle shoes are proving very popular too. Pop by regularly the range is changing… Continue

You might have noticed we have a pack of wolves on the sim. They are actually quite friendly, and actually have names, Harry, Inae, Bluebell and Stephs. They roam free around the sim.
If you are a member of the Beau Belle family and would like to be able to call or pet the wolves just ask Teesa, she will sort that out for you.
Aw look at Bluebell having a howl at the… Continue

Dance me to the end of love. This time not too much to say, because we didn't do much we just danced and danced and danced. And lovely it was too. And Stephs had his own stream going so we had all our favourite tunes playing. Ah bliss. I will let the photos do the talking.…

Well the briefest of notes from this cold paradise. The second day of our break involved me having a giant migraine, and barely being able to move. Did it spoil our time, well not for me, an excuse to sit together, not move, and have gentle conversation, a luxury we rarely have the time for. And after some considerable time, I noticed, my headache was much improved. The soothing honey of honeymoon.
Having a wonderful time… Continue

Greetings to all of you. I am on holiday, or more acurately we are on honeymoon. The wonderful Bluebell Broome gave Stephs and I a beautiful honeymoon for our wedding present, so very thoughtful of her, although that also means that she is left to deal will all sim issues as we both disappear for a week. A WEEK!!! A blissful week of each others company, and no distractions, no prim counter, rental boxes, group notices or anything vaguely resembling work. And so far (one day) I am loving… Continue

We have a new clothes shop setting up on the sim and it is a really good one! Lordy I will be so broke. I don't want to post photos until it is done, but Tosca promises to be an exciting and dramatic addition to the sim, more to follow.

Just last night four of us were dancing at the Leonard Cohen Club, the mood and tunes were sweet and mellow, then suddenly we were six, then eight. The mood improved even more, as gentle banter fluttered around the Beau Belle and Leonard Cohen Groups, and then we were ten, twelve, twenty...
and a wonderful night was had by all, I left weary and smiley in the early hours with people still dancing in the club. What a great night.
Harry and Lore the ultimate hosts… Continue

One of my favourite things in SL is the moon, maybe because ones sighting of it is often so fleeting, so imagine my delight when I discovered we have two moons on Beau Belle. Well we strive to go one further all the time. This moon you can actually sit on and it has a swing too.…

We have a new usherette in Beau Belle, she is an automated robot, and makes me laugh so much sometimes. Here are some of her recent pearls.
[16:27] Inae Indigo: i see dead people
[16:27] Beau Belle Usherette: Maybe you should call the authorities.
[16:28] Beau Belle Usherette: Are you free in the sense of being single or in the sense of being liberated?
[16:28] Inae Indigo: i am free of the bonds of this… Continue

Well it is that time of the year, when the lonely feel lonely and the loved feel loved, I hope you are one of the latter. Well in the spirit of that we threw a Valentines Ball for the single people of SL (although couples weren't forbidden :)). And as you can see from the number of smooching couples in the following photos, it was a great success. Everyone seemed to be dancing with someone, and even Curly put on some clothes! He looked so cute, and had no trouble getting dancing partners. JJ… Continue

Oh my goodness, it has been a ride and a half. Life on Beau Belle is moving so fast so many fun nights, and so many changes that I hardly know what to write. So I thought a pictorial of the last month or so might be the way to go. (more to follow)

So it has been months since I blogged. And why? Well my mummy always said if you had nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. So I decided not to speak for a while. Now if you read my first ever blog, I believe not a word of it is still true. I no longer live on Hallelujah, I am no longer with my partner Harley, I no longer run sLove Is... But sometimes losing things clears space for better things in life. Things were changing around me, things… Continue

So now I am wondering (see, it is dangerous when you get me thinking), do people use SL as a kind of interactive diary. I am not suggesting that is anyone's reason for installing the game but consider the interplay you have with each other. I am constantly touched and surprised at how my friends and even new aquaintences open their hearts and souls to me, and I am sure, to you too.
We talk about RL, our fears and hopes, we discuss our day and advise and support each other. I have… Continue

So there was me looking at how we touch each others lives, and how we perceive the truth of matters and what did I find? A brand new blogger asking himself similar questions! Not an SL blog an RL one but I still found it something I wanted to include here, and I can't wait to see what he has to say next. http://bloggingohno.blogspot.com/
