A Wonderland of Snow


Snow snow snow! The bug has totally hit me. I went from anti-snow & holiday scrooge, to wanting snow on everything, and holiday jingles playing around every corner.

You know who else has the winter bug? The Liaison Collaborative this round! Their winter theme can’t be beat, and you must scurry on over to check out what they have in store! I am showing off three items from this round! First off, are my adorable rosy winter cheeks from Wicked Peach. They are the perfect touch for photographs in the chilly temps! Second, is my stylish infinity scarf from Izzie’s. Izzie Button has made this scarf in four different patterns you can purchase. Each pattern comes with a HUD to change colors/patterns! It’s a great and valuable find as you can match the scarf with so many things this winter. I am wearing the plain scarf. Lastly, from the event is my pose from Everglow. I’d like to make note that my arms are hidden in this post because of my cape, but the pose set is adorable and features lots of different useful poses. You can see a pose key here on Seraphim’s website, as well as many of the other great items at this round.

I really get excited when a designer has a mainstore release. With so many wonderful events taking place, we don’t often see a lot of mainstore releases anymore. ISON has put a new item in their mainstore location .  This beautiful winter cape comes in seven beautiful hues. The alpha layer hides your arms to make it look as if your hands are in your pockets. Genius right? I think this is my favorite item that Mr. Harry Hyx has released yet.

So hurry along now. You have all sorts of places to stop at today to gather up your winter apparel!

Dreaming of Snowflakes


So I will be the first to admit that over the past many weeks I have been a holiday Scrooge. I see people putting up Christmas lights way too early, I hear seasonal jingles hitting the radio stations, and I find myself angry.  It’s too soon! It’s way too soon! At least that is what I keep telling people.

The other evening though I was sitting here at my computer, and I glanced out my window to see pretty little snowflakes dancing through the wind. They were whimsical and beautiful, and when I took a moment to watch them play in the chilly breeze, it made me realize that maybe I’m just being grumpy for no reason.  My grouchy stance is starting to soften, and I think the holiday spirit is slowly creeping into my veins.

Watch out. Because once that holiday spirit bug hits me. There’s no turning back.

I took some time to explore The Pines at Jacob’s Pond yesterday upon the recommendation from my plurk friend & fellow blogger  Aubrey Topaz . I am so glad she recommended this sim to me! It was so beautiful, and just continued to increase my holiday spirit! Lots of little places to explore here, and every inch is so scenic!

Coldlogic has been churning out all sorts of wonderful winter items lately. They released a great line of coats a couple of weeks ago, and just recently they put out a handful of sweaters & scarves! The entire collection is worth owning, but the Wayne sweater and scarf are most definitely my favorite! You can find these great items at their mainstore location.

Now hurry along now. Go off and play in all the pretty SL snow in your new winter apparel!

That Kitchen Held Treasured Memories


We are hitting that time of year when the temps start to drop, the snow begins to fall, and all I want to do is spend time in the kitchen baking warm, ooey & gooey treats! It also really motivates me to set up cozy little scenes to show you all.

I have simply fallen in love with the Lavender Brown House that Scarlet Creative released for Collabor88 this month. It’s spacious, rustic, and rich with beautiful textures and warmth. It’s the perfect hideaway for the chilly winter nights.  What’s also perfect is the Antique Kitchen that Trompe Loeil created for FaMESHed. It goes wonderfully with the Scarlet Creative House, and comes with a wide array of pieces including a sink, stove, pot rack, island, hutch, tables and chairs, and so much more.

So bundle up and grab all your baking gear because we’ve finally hit the perfect time of year for it!

Bare Face Challenge


I decided to take part in the Bare Face Challenge that Genkai Tesla started! The challenge has been taking the Second Life blogger, designer, and picture taker community by storm! Countless people have taken part in this fun & uplifting challenge, so I decided I would join in as well.   The challenge consists of no makeup, no lashes, no photoshop. Just a bare image of your avatar.

So here I am!

Oracle & Alchemy


Once again, I’m finding that I really enjoy from time to time doing blog posts with my Second Life friends. It’s always fun to see what personal style they bring to a post, and it makes the photo shoot a lot more fun when you have someone to chat with during it!   Today I snagged my friend Jishin Bailey, and told her to throw some stuff on from the newest round of Collabor88. I love that she picked the new ISON ensemble that Harry Hyx created for this round.  It’s one of my favorite pieces from this month. I especially love the laces running up the sides of the sexy pants.

I also am showing off some great finds from this round.  My hair is a new to me store called Little Bones. This is the first time I’ve worn their hair, and I really found this style to be quite cute! The color hue choices are great, and you can even change the little third eye headband that it comes with! I paired it with the awesome new dress from Pixicat. This dress comes with a full coverage option for the top, and also this cute cropped top.

I have to admit that without my pen to my drawing tablet I feel utterly useless with my photo taking/editing. My adorable chihuahua had a not so adorable moment and ran off with it somewhere, and I can’t seem to find it! I’m trying to use my mouse to edit my photos, and it’s hard to go back to that once you’ve used a digital pen for so long!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Sneak on over to Collabor88 and grab yourself some new goodies!
