This blog is just about my Second Life. The things I see and do while exploring this vast pixelated world. There is so much to see here in SL, it's hard to know where to start.
So spread your wings, take flight, experience all that SL has to offer.
The amazing Sanura Sakai has organised the Extend a helping hand market to raise much needed funds for those affect by the devastating floods in Queensland, Australia. Many fantastic designers, a number of which are directly affected by these floods, have donated many items to help this fundraiser. It is harrowing to watch the devastation as it unfolds before our eyes. Heartbreaking to know it was getting worse and that we can't do a damn thing about it. But we can extend a helping hand to those affected by purchasing an item or two from this market or by making a donation. For more information on this event, please head over to Sanura's real life blog Kat Johnston

A good friend of mine, Rue, posted a meme on her blog,Rue the day!, mid December that has inspired me to venture back into the world of blogging. It's been awhile since I've blogged, rl has had me preoccupied. I have always loved taking pics in SL but I've never been the best at writing, so I thought that answering someone else's questions would make it a lot easier. I'm not one to talk about myself but I thought I'd follow suit and share a little about meme..
LeahJane Cazalet, LJ for short.
What is your occupation in SL?
Apart from inventory filler, I don't have one. I use to blog and I also use to do some modelling for The Stringer Mausoleum too, but my lazy arse hasn't done that in awhile. My original plans for SL were to make things to sell but I've been having to much fun stuffin around and playing dress-ups to bother. One day maybe.
How many items in your inventory?
I have over 35K in my inventory and I'm planning to delete about 20K of it (that may be some wishful thinking)
What are you listening to right now?
P!nk's Raise your glass
What was the last thing you ate?
Spaghetti on toast
Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes I can drive a stick shift/manual (Depending on where you live)
If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Purple and probably toxic
Last person you spoke to on the phone?
My daughter, she's spending the night at her grandparents house
Do you like the person who sent you this?
Hmmm...let me think! Do I like Rue? Damn straight I do! Well maybe just a lil. I don't get to hang out with Rue very often in SL but I'm happy I get to keep in touch via plurk. This queen of all things dark and unnatural has the heart of gold and a personality to match. Her openness and honesty about who she really is has inspired my RL in more ways than one. Rue is an extremely talented artist, an amazing lady and a true friend.
How old are you today?
I'm 36 years, 2 months and 29 days old in RL and 3 and a half in SL
My avi's favorite drink is freshly decanted, warm human blood. And for an exotic flavour, a little neko or fae blood goes down a treat. I don't get to drink alcohol very often but when I do, I love Midori splices and Bailey & milk.
What’s your favorite sport to watch?
The Australian Ironman series
Have you ever dyed your hair?
Only a section of it. I have really dark brown hair and I occasional have a couple of stripes on top bleached blonde so I can dye it corvet red.
Not really! We share a couple of sheep named Jess and Tess with our neighbour.
Toad in the hole with mash potato and gravy.
Last movie you watched?
Angels & Demons
Favorite day of year?
6th of Feb and 3rd of June, my kids birthdays.
What do you do to vent your anger?
Depends on how hard I'm pushed. If I'm at work, I'll just let them have it. Mind you, it takes a lot to get me to that point, I'm very laid back and don't particularly care what others say. If it's family related, I'll stew over it and if it's the kids shitting me, I'll leave the room to calm down.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
I had a few. I love my My little ponies, my smurf figurines and I had a strawberry BigM hoolahoop that smelt divine. I was the typical girl that had a few barbie dolls but I never had a ken, my barbies use to date my Michael Jackson and Gene Simmons dolls.
Whats your favorite season?
Spring. Lovely weather, not too hot. Sun is shining, birds are singing, bugs are buzzing and the flowers bloom in wonderful colours. We have a number of Kookaburras nesting on our property. Each spring you hear the babies learning their trademark cackle. Their attempt to laugh is just adorable, they sound broken...lol
Hugs or Kisses?
Depends who it's with. Hugs and kisses, I'm pretty affectionate.
Cherry or blueberry?
Cherries...grosse (unless it's a cherry ripe chocolate bar) so it will have to be blueberries.
Do you want your friends to send you this back to you?
That is entirely up to them. I love reading things like this about others.
Who is most likely to respond?
Anyone that likes to share a lit bit of themselves and have their own blog.
Who is least likely to respond?
Anyone that stumbles across this. I am a fairly quite person, keep to myself a lot, not wanting to bother anybody.
When was the last time you laughed?
Just know. My kids have me laughing everyday.
When was the last time you cried?
About 3 weeks ago. Which is a long time for me!
What is on the floor of your closet?
Clothes that I haven't been bothered to put away yet.
Who is the friend you have had the longest you are sending this to.
Stry and Rue
Vanilla, baby powder, cut grass, christmas pine, Mum's roast, a baking chocolate cake, certain men wearing Joop after shave.My nan lives just up the road from a big bread company. I used to love playing in her front garden, the smell of freshly baked bread would waft through...mmm
Who inspires you?
My partner, my children, my brother, Ruina Kessel, Sierra Sugar and Stryda Radek (Where ever in the world he may be)
What are you afraid of?
That which I can't see in the dark.
Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers?
A black 58, 62 or 66 Chevrolet Impala, hard top or convertible. So pretty much old skool, black, very shiny and got some grunt.
Favorite cat breed?
I love cats but I don't have a favorite breed. I'll have any cat as long as it's not to stubborn and fiery.
Number of keys on your key ring?
How many years in your current job?
Have been working in the hospitality industry for 17 years and have been at the current venue for a year and a half.
Where’s The Question?
How many states have you lived in?
Do you think you’re fun?
Yes! When people get to know me, they will see this.
My favourite tree would have to be the Bodhi tree. With it's heart shaped leaves, this huge sacred fig tree is ancient, rare and very spiritual. It is believed thatGautama Buddha achieved enlightenment under this tree.
Favorite all time music Album/CD
This is a hard question. I like songs more than whole albums but I can think of a few albums that I listen to from cover to cover like Live – Throwing Copper, P!nk – Fun house & Ga ga's The fame monster.
The end. Well almost!

Under the veil of darkness, a Circus of the damned rolled into town. Rumours quickly spread of Vampires, as many of the town folk began to vanish. No laughter is ever heard coming from this big tent, only the screams of those unfortunate enough to enter alone.
So come on in. Take a seat...if you dare!
Believing vampires are nothing more than fiction and being a rather inquisitive individual, you decide to take a closer look and step into the dimly lit tent. It was cold and empty. The smell of blood fills the damp night air. You suddenly feel a presence, and as if out of nowhere, a clown had magically appeared, intrepidly balancing high above on the tight rope. Her arm swung forward, and with a slight twist of her thumb, she had splayed apart four large knives. You take a seat on an old hand carved wooden chair. Your excitement and anticipation begin to mount, as you gaze hypnotically up at the circus performer. To your amazement, she holds the very sharp blade ends of the knives and begins to juggle. The evil fanged beauty, turns and glares straight at you with her vivid blue eyes. She herself desires to be entertained, and she has you in her sights. All of a sudden, she throws the knives in your direction. With precision, she has pinned your arms and legs tightly to the chair by your clothing. With wide eyes, you look down at the large blades that just missed your skin. You begin to panic. As you try to move, you fail to notice that the clown was no longer up on the tight rope and that she was now standing directly behind you. As you look back up at the now barren rope above, you hear a gentle whisper in your left ear "Scream for me". Cold lips press firmly against the skin on the side of your neck, then an agonisingly sharp pain as she sinks her fangs deep into your warm flesh. She borders on ecstasy as your blood begins to flows over her tongue. You scream at the top of your lungs due to the affliction she forced upon you but you soon stop as her bite becomes extremely erotic. Within seconds, your body becomes calm and relaxed, no longer trying to fight her bite of death. Everything goes dark...
Releasing her grasp from your neck, the clown takes a step back and wipes a small drop of your blood from the corner of her mouth with the tip of her finger and places it on her tongue. "Mmmm...delicious! Compliments to the chef". Before leaving, she leans over your wretched body and retrieves her beloved weaponry, then vanishes back to the shadows from where she came.

Outfit is a collaboration of 5 different BareRose outfits:
Hi, I'm LJ and I'm addicted to sculpted prim clothing. I absolutely love them, though they can be difficult to resize and adjust (you may even need to adjust your shape) but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier. ***Warning: Please, please, please always make a copy before you make adjustments, just incase you stuff it!
The awesome shorts are a fairly recent release from BC322. They're called Leather Bermuda pants and I loves them. They have a studded belt, wallet and chain and knuckle dusters in the back pocket.
This rather unique blue pendant necklace is from Fusion, I bought mine from the Black and blue fair but you get them from Fusion's main store. The stuning eyes are from the devilishly divine Ruina Kessel of the House of Ruin. Tonic XXX Hypnotist.
These pics were taken over at Excess mainstore. It is an interesting build and I had to take some pics to share with all you viewers. Excess sell hair, clothes, skins and some wicked complete avatars, male and female.
Items I'm always wearing:
Skin: Tuli - Hope (Goth) 09
Eyes: House of Ruin - Tonic XXX Hypnotist
Tattoo: iNFLICT - Champions trophy
Accessories: Sinistyle - Taped hands and wrist/ Arm bracers
Boots: Little Britain Designs - New Rock Flame boots
