Jack Frost Nipping at Your Nose

Hi everyone! Today I have a lot to show you. So many pictures I can’t wait to share! As I noted in my last post, I am back to blogging for the Cart Sale located on the Wash sim. The current round runs from December 14, 2016 to January 4, 2017. What is so awesome about this event? Each item is only 10 linden and for this round, quite a few vendors have transferrable items. So, if you are looking for Christmas gifts and are on a budget, take a look around! Link to the sim will be below along with all other links. Hang on folks, this is going to be a long post, but you’re sure to find something you’ll love!

First up on my list is the Holiday Corset Dress from Dark Water Designs. This snug corset dress is perfect for the semi-formal and casual Christmas get togethers or event just a nice dinner out. At the Cart Sale, you have the option of three different colors for this dress and then the option of a pack with standard meshes and fitted mesh OR a pack with fitted mesh sizes for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza. This dress would be perfect for a gift for a girlfriend, sister, aunt, any female friends! I paired this dress with The Little bat’s Ribbon Choker in silver to bring a bit of playful holiday spirit in to my look. Several colors are included in the pack, so there is sure to be one to match any outfit. Both my hair and boots are from subscription boxes I joined for December. The boots are from EMPIRE for Luxe Box and the hair is from Doe for Bishbox.

My second look includes the gown Mishmash Fusion has up for sale. Standard mesh sizes are included along with sizes for Matireya, the 3 Belleza, and 2 Slink bodies. The gown itself fits very well on my Maitreya Lara and is very pretty for an evening party or formal pictures. I can even see this being used as a bridesmaid’s dress for a wedding if you pair it with one of her fur trimmed capes that are also being sold. My hair is currently on sale on the Marketplace from TRUTH for Second Life’s 12 Days of Savings. I don’t buy a lot of hair from TRUTH but fell in love with this one when I saw it on a friend and it happened to be on sale for 75 linden. SCORE!

For my third look, I swapped the long gown for a fun little dress from .::battle fairy::. that comes fitted for Maitreya, 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, and TMP bodies as well as standard mesh sizes. This pretty little number comes in several different pattern variations but I just adored Flurry because of its wintry feel. While it may not keep my legs too warm, they certainly look fabulous.

Now throughout my pictures, you can see a variety of furniture, a lot of which is at the Cart Sale. One of my favorite pieces is the Cozy Living Room set from =EC Designs= which includes the fireplace, table with candles and books, and the sofa. This is the Winter version of the set which is a special for the event. The fireplace can be turned on and off, volume of the flames adjusted, and security set via the menu accessed with a Touch. Click the candle wicks to light the candles or turn them off too! Plenty of singles and PG couples animations in the sofa will make this the perfect addition to your house and for families.

In the corner, you can see my lovely Buckley’s Rocking Horse. While Dictatorshop is known for adult furniture, this horse comes in a PG version too so that you can have it out around families for holiday festivities. The animations are smooth and natural. Menus for singles have animations on and off the horse while four menus have PG cuddles, kisses, dances, and riding the horse animations. Only the adult version has animation options under the Adult menu button. Poses are adjustable and swappable. Included with either version are rezzable and wearable huds to change various parts of the Horse so you can match it to your home décor. Note: This is a main store release. NOT at the Cart Sale.

Another item of note is the Gramophone on my Modern Tree table. The Gramophone actually plays the song Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and is only 2 prims. Nothing says holiday spirit like good music in a cozy warm setting with loved ones. And with pets! Who doesn’t love a kitty sleeping by the fireplace?

Well that is all I have for now. My holidays will be very busy. If I have time, I will blog more before the New Year, but don’t wait around! Go see what is at the Cart Sale while you can. Remember, all items are 10 linden and some are transferrable. Happy holidays everyone!

Crystallize with .Moon Amore. [Bentbox] [The Plastik] and Miwa x.Nomore.

We ❤ RP will be closing soon to get ready for the next round.  I, as always, always find lots of neat things each month and had to share a few finds with you.  Although this look lacks wings, it still plays with my Faerie nature of wonder and magic.

I was immediately entranced with this little dress by .Moon Amore. because of the playful cut and color.  The dress comes with a Hud to change between two colors on various sections such as the skirt, the mesh skirt overlay, ruffles on the top, and ribbons.  I usually wear a size M but the skirt actually looks better a size up for me.

The mesh eyes I’m wearing from [Bentbox] are really neat because of how much you can customize them. Size, rotation, position are fairly standard but it’s nice how the Hud for movement controls are laid out.  There’s also a dilation Hud that gives you the option of a few fixed pupil sizes or automatic dilation.  But the BEST part is the color customization Hud.  Not only are there plenty of eye colors, solera colors, and the option to tint the solera, iris, and pupil, but there’s also buttons to activate the right or left eye separately!  I absolutely love that these mesh eyes offer an endless array of combos.  For designers, the developers kit was included as well.

Plastik, or The Plastik, creates outstandingly beautiful designs.  The intricate detail of this ring set looks flawless and includes many gem and metal options on the Hud.  Note that this set is designed for Maitreya hands and Slink Casual Hands.  While you don’t get to tint the gems to your own colors, there’s plenty of choices to match anything you will be wearing (or not if that’s your style lol).  I had fun with these rings. 🙂

Lastly, I adore the pose set done by the collaboration of Miwa and .Nomore. poses. The crystal I’m holding is included in a copy designed to match each of five poses. I’ve featured three of my favorite poses.  Cute and fun, it would make a great addition for anyone who loves magic. ❤

She’s a Flame: Autumn’s at Uber

As I’ve said before, Autumn or fall is my favorite season. I took a look through Uber a few days ago and saw a few things that sparked my interest due to this month’s theme.

First off the hair was something I saw in another blog by Deebles called Like butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth. Once I saw the picture, I had to grab the hair. I just love little foxes and the hat on this hair by TRUTH is darling. Besides the various hair colors, Foxy comes with an accessory hud that enables the user to switch between multiple colors of the fox hat. Additionally, if you find yourself to be a bit more well endowed in the bust department, there’s two included versions for bustier ladies. Duplicate versions without the hat are also included.

My loving sl husband came with me while I was shopping and he saw me drooling over this sweater by erratic with the Eiffel Tower on the front in a cute knit pattern. So he bought it for me. :3 So shoutout to him for spoiling me. ❤ I absolutely love how well made it is and the fit is purrfect! Please note, this top is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara body. There’s a nice variety of colors and prints to choose from if La Tour d’Eiffel is not your thing.

The knit leggings by .miss chelsea. I’m wearing look really nice and detailed. A variety of colors and patterns inspired by the season are available; you can buy them separately, in basic packs of four color/patterns, or all of them in the fatpack. Included are fits for many of the main mesh body types such as Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, Slink, and the TMP body. What I didn’t realize but found to be ingenious is that the pants come with an alpha hud that lets you hide a few different lengths of the pant leg. Very helpful for wearing boots.

I’m not normally the type of person to buy skins, but I took a gamble and tried the Glam Affair demos for the skins at Uber. They looked really pretty and the price really is a bargain for all the options each skin comes with. The one I ended up getting is Caroline – Exotic. One skin comes with multiple brow and makeup options. The plus for Maitreya loving ladies is that we don’t need appliers (unless you’re using slink hands/feet that is).

After such a shopping excursion I had to sit down. One place I can’t seem to explore enough is the City of Serenity, owned by a few builder friends I know. Their bright city has a few shops, a bar, a shooting range, ballroom, and lots more. Come explore when you can after you check out this month’s Uber. 🙂
