Grab Your Snow Boots


Paige Patrucci has been one of my longest and dearest friends in Second Life. I’ve known her going on five years (holy crap Paige has it been that long?), and we have had countless fun memories here in this crazy virtual world. She’s someone that even if Second Life crumbled into a pile of burned pixels (Oh God please don’t let that happen), we would still remain life long friends. I value her friendship, and all the wonderful times we’ve had together, and it’s always a good time when we get together to pose for a photo for my blog.

One thing about Paige is that she’s always been very fashionable. She isn’t a fashion blogger here (although she should be), but she always manages to pull off great styles with impeccable taste. I noticed the other day she was wearing the new ensemble from Tres Blah, and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to grab her for a photograph.

This awesome look can be found at December’s round of Collabor88. I am loving all the snow themed events this time of year, and all the different layered mesh items.

Credits below! I don’t have all of Paige’s credits, so if there is something you see her wearing and you want to know what it is…hit me up! I’ll pester her for more information.

It’s A Marshmallow World in the Winter


The darling Miss Isabelli Anatine kindly lent her sim to me today so that I could take a snowy photograph of a few great new items that can be found at TLC this round.  Her sim Demented Love is a winter paradise currently, filled with frosty wonders that will delight you!

I am loving all the winter home and garden items that are quickly making their way around the grid. What Next has created a fantastically detailed winter picnic set that is perfect for any snowy scene.  I love the thermoses and mugs for hot cocoa!

One of my favorite items released at TLC this month is the lighted trees from Pixel Mode.  I am really excited to use these around The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse when I finally get around to changing the seasons! They are so sparkly and beautiful!

Yay for snow…and sparkles…and hot cocoa!

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!

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!
