With Love Hunt

It’s that time again…the With Love Hunt is back and better than ever with 100 different stores featuring an amazing line up of items for you!  Each item is worth around 400 lindens, and you can pick it up for only 10!  Above I am modeling a few different items from the hunt. The hunt runs from December 9th through the 6th of January so you have plenty of time to check out each store!

What Next put out a beautiful Holiday lamp post with a variety of singles and couples poses as well as a few props including a book to sing Christmas Carols with! All the poses are just fantastic, and it makes a perfect decor item for your home, as well as a great photo prop.  The beautiful winter sweater I am wearing is from Peqe!  This sweater made me run and get one of my cozy sweaters in my real life to throw on!  I love how warm it looks and the pattern choice is great.

A newer store is now hitting the fashion scene and their items are certainly worth talking about.  MAAI features a variety of fashionable items, including these awesome heels and socks that I am wearing.  The socks are color change and the shoe and sock are both resizable.  Comes in a multitude of color choices as well!

Ark was so kind to pose with me for this photo and I’ll make sure to show you what he’s wearing, as well as all of my style credits below! :)

Sadness

“The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” – Jim Rohn

Ironically this photo was taken a few days ago when my week was off to a great start.  Things were going smoothly and life was good.  It’s kind of incredible how quickly a week can change though.  The unsuspecting death of a friend, coming down with a fever and virus of some sort, and a handful of friends going through a tough time can REALLY turn your week around in an instant.

I’m not the type to stay sad for long, so I’m sure the tough times will pass.  Life isn’t always fair, and I guess to fully recognize the wonderful moments we have to suffer through the hard ones.  Christmas is just around the corner, and I have family & friends I get to see soon. Traveling home will be wonderful.  That is something to be joyful over.  I really do have so much to be happy about.  So I’ll be sad for a few days, and hopefully in time my happiness will return!

If you are interested in knowing where my amazing tears are from above, they are from Izzie’s.  They come with a few options including mascara running down your face but I went for the more simplistic tears instead.  It also comes with a set of eyes in a few colors to match your tears.  Perfect for those days where you just need to cry it out. My hair is from Elikatira, skin is Belleza, and my lashes are from LeLutka.

Explore

I feel like quite the little explorer in my outfit today.  Strangely the first thing I thought of when I put on my new ISON fur vest (omg I love this thing) was of Louis and Clark and their expeditions.  Why on earth would I think that? I dunno. Fur for some reason makes me think of people traveling in the old days. Through cold and treacherous conditions.  You know…yeah… umm…

I’m a dork.

Anyway! I really do love this new vest from ISON and I love this fur trend going on in SL lately.  I would never in my real life wear fur.  It’s just something I find unnecessary and cruel… but in SL? Heck! No cute furry animals harmed in the making of these adorable items!  I dunno what designers are doing to create this fuzzy/cozy look of these textures but it is working! Keep up the great work!

My necklace is from KOSH.  It’s been a while since I’ve shown you much from here.  I think the necklace definitely adds to my theme of exploration today. The details on it are fantastic, and I don’t think there is much like it out on the grid.

During my great (and very treacherous…) journey to one of my favorite sims, Paradise Valley, I got a chance to wander and explore their new winter set up.  This sim always impresses me.  They do such a beautiful job on it, and there are sorts of scenic spots to snap pictures.

Have a great day!

Old Town New England

I ventured over to one of my favorite sims recently! Innsmouth, which is an old coastal New England town that’s based off of the classic horror Lovecraft stories from forever ago.  This sim has been around for ages and it’s essentially in many ways become a classic sim on the Second Life Grid.  For how long ago everything was made the sim still holds up as one of the most well put together places around, and the atmosphere is just fantastic.

I love my casual little outfit I’ve put together for this post.  Emery was having a 50% off sale (Thank you Ana for letting me know about the sale!)  I think the sale may still be going on so hurry up and go grab some great items.  My oversized cardigan I am wearing is from there.  I had the hardest time deciding on a color, and I was so pleased with how easily this fit.  Very little adjusting was needed to cover my shape.

I really love these new boots from *Crazy* as well.  I stared at this from a long time debating on whether or not to buy them.  They were really affordable though and a great purchase.  I’m so glad I decided to add them to my shoe collection.  A shoe collection that seems to be growing very rapidly lately.

Elikatira just released new hair and this is by far my all time favorite that she has released.  It’s called “Quirky” and the name couldn’t be more fitting.  I saw the glasses in the ad for this hair and knew I also had to have them so I ran over to mon tissu and picked them up.  Instant new favorites as well!  My adorable envelope necklace is from Pididdle.  (I love the name of that store)  It’s quite unique and I think it’ll look great with a variety of fashion ensembles.

Lastly, I wanted to mention the 25 days of poses that Adorkable is doing.  Each day you can stop by the store and pick one one pose for free that she has so graciously set out for you to enjoy.  What a creative gift idea for customers!  I’ve so far seen the first 7 poses and I can tell you that they are darling!

On a totally separate personal note I ask you all for prayers today.  A guy I graduated from high school with sadly passed away last night.  He tragically had a lot going on in his life, and ended up taking his life to the surprise of all of those around him.  Please remember that life is short and to hold onto the important things and rid yourself of as much negativity as you can in your life.  Life is too precious and wonderful to not hold onto the special moments.  So please I ask for prayers for his family and friends, as this Holiday season will be a hard one for many.  Thank you so much.
