It's been well over a year and a half since my last blog post here, so high time I posted something. But this lack of presence on the Beau Belle website has also sadly been reflected in my presence in Beau Belle; I've barely been able to get chance to log in to pay my rent each month!! My life has changed completely since the days when I was in SL every night until 4am building things, running events and showing people round....I'm finally settling down, in First Life, with a baby due very… Continue

Our new co-owner May reminded me that as time goes by and people come and go, the new visitors to Beau Belle might not know the history behind the island, or some of the co-owners past and present. So I though I'd post a little bit about me, and a little bit about the history of the island, for those who haven't been around for ever.
The idea for Beau Belle started years ago from discussions between Teesa Beattie and myself; we had been residents in another sim called… Continue

To keep up with demand for bread in Beau Belle, we have built a windmill to grind our flour, and as a nifty side-effect the windmill is available for rent! It features four floors, which are compact but cute, including a private loft space which would make an ideal bedroom. Located at the end of Fisherman's Row, not far from the North Wind (up in the sky), it catches plenty of wind all day long.
It's available for rent now, at $750/week for 225 prims, so come along quickly… Continue

Looking for a comfy and cosy place to hide away and read my knitting book, I decided to make a little cosy corner with comfy chairs in the cellar underneath Belle's. You can find it in the corner by the barrels (so handy for helping yourself to a sherry while you read your book or chat with friends).
I know I'm not the world's best interior decorator/furnisher (and actually probably the worst), and the chairs are old and well-worn, but very… Continue

August has come to an end, in a fleeting flurry of frantic activity, with a number of people bidding for the title of Beau Belle Mahjong Champion of August 2010. However, much as we tried, nobody could quite reach Lill Verwood's spectacular score of 40241, and so once again Lill maintains her crown!
Runners up include Bluebell coming a close second at 37963, Havanna making her debut on the Mahjong league table with a truly admirable 15606, Slacko Dragonash (anyone know who… Continue

Tonight I held my first foray into the world of jazz events, as a change from my usual Rock Club
events. As it turned, out, I spent most of the show off-stage, in the audience, watching friends and family of Beau Belle playing some tremendous jazz on stage!!! Great when you can arrange a show and other people do all the work!! :)…

Thursday evening marked the first Film Night
at Beau Belle Cinema that we have seen in a very long time....in fact possibly as long as when the island was only half a sim, and we had a Grease night
with an outdoor drive-through cinema :)
But this time, we were in for an altogether more thought-provoking and serious film, Frost-Nixon, all about the powerful interviews David Frost had with Richard… Continue

We have a new addition to the games cellar underneath Belle's Coffee Bar - a nifty new Backgammon game!!! In case you haven't played before, it's fairly simple - the rules can be found here
. It's a really fun game for 2 people, and a game only takes 15 minutes or so!
Sena, Inae, Javi and I were playing together earlier,…

Just a quick note to say thank-you to everyone who came along to my Rock Club event on Wednesday, and made it such a fun event!! It means so much to see you all out there grooving away having fun, and I'm very touched that you all came along!! Lovely to see some new faces there too (including Beau Belle's favourite alien Sena!)…

With DJ Stephs taking a well earned trip away for a few weeks, I'm invading the regular Wednesday slot at Belle's Coffee Bar to bring you.....
DJ Bluebell will take the stage in what is rumoured to be a spectacular rock extravaganza to rival Pink Floyd. So put on your favourite rock dude/chick outfit and come ready to rock out to some classic rock and Brit-pop, with a few surprises thrown in. As this will be DJ Bluebell's first go…

As many of you will know by now, Beau Bell is undergoing some kind of transition, and I thought it would be a good idea to write about it in more detail, so that everyone understands what's happening.
Yesterday Beau Belle went offline unexpectedly and without warning or notice. The first I heard of it was when Lore sent out a group notice about it when she tried to get to the sim. A ticket was submitted to Linden Labs to try and find out what had happened, and they replied… Continue

Due to the kerfuffle regarding the sim's temporary closure, we have had to close the Mahjong competition for April a little early by a few days. Before we lifted up Belle's and its games cellar, I grabbed a photograph of the… Continue

March has ended, and saw some very competitive Mahjong gameplay in the Belle's cellar, and it will come as no surprise to anyone to learn that Lill Verwood won again, with an impressive 7628 point lead over second place runner up Bluebell Broome, who beat third place man Javi Bruhl by a tidy 322 points. Lore and Stephs came in an admirable fourth and fifth respectively.…

Dear Beau Belle community,
I wanted to write a little note to say I won't be around for a while, as I'm taking a break from Second Life.
Things have been getting on top of me recently for one reason or another (or twenty) and in some ways I've been trying to escape things by using SL a lot. This last couple of months in particular while I've been off work with my broken clavicle and then 'flu I've been in Second Life a crazy amount,… Continue
