  • We’re writing a letter to Santa today

    We're writing a letter to Santa today
    With so many things that we want to say.
    Dear Santa, we're writing to wish you good cheer
    And tell how good we've been this year.
    Oh Santa Claus, Santa Claus, please visit me.
    The house will look pretty with lights on the tree.
    I'll leave you some cookies on Christmas Eve night.
    I'll be in my bed all snuggle up tight.
    Fly up to my roof in your reindeer sleigh
    Then slide down my chimney with gifts right away.
    Before we forget, there's one thing more.
    For kids without chimneys, please use their door.
    Oh Santa Claus, Santa Claus, please visit me.
    The house will look pretty with lights on the tree.
    I'll leave you some cookies on Christmas Eve night.
    I'll be in my bed all snuggle up tight.

    Here’s a Christmassy look, that’s not exactly Christmassy… for all you peeps out there who like to go against the grain a bit, AsteroidBox is giving!

    Seven Days

    There’s a sorta Advent-esque calendar going on at AsteroidBox.  I mean, it is an Advent Calendar, but it’s just from the 4th of Dec until the 10th.  Some of the gifts are free for everyone, and for some  you have to join their VIP group (which costs 75L).  Today I’m showing off the first two gifts which are free for all and sundry.  The Astral Moth earrings are totally something I’d wear every day forever in RL, and the Eira dress shines and catches the light in all the best ways (and the HUD has 5 different stripe options).  Check out the other goodies coming up, each prize will be available until the 10th, then the free ones will disappear and the group ones will be moved.  Go go go!

    DeuxLooks - and then we'll snuggle

    You should have seen where this outfit began. The polar opposite of where it ended up, that’s for sure. I’ve been watching my favorite holiday movies and can’t get “and then we’ll snuggle” out of my head from Elf. It’s also something my niece says repeatedly. The cutest fr.

    DeuxLooks - and then we'll snuggle

    This oversized sweater and scarf from [SHIFUKU] seemed like the perfect snuggle-suited outfit. I have really enjoyed almost everything I have seen from this creator these last few months. From this blouse to this unique dress (which I happily fatpacked), I’m evolving into a certified collector. This sweater doesn’t have a Perky fit but I think it still works just fine.

  • The Hunting Lesson

    The Hunting Lesson

    OMG, life out there in the real world has gotten so stressful that I have ventured deep into the forest to get some peace and quiet.  I took along a new companion, deciding it was a perfect time to start teaching a few basics of hunting, the weight of taking a life even for the good of the tribe, how the same skills are used when patrolling the perimeter of our territory.  Ahh, the peace and quiet, away from the cacophony of outdoor landscapers, the detritus from  a flooding sink pipe, and the stress and mess of an old dying dog.  Quietly, I start teaching the lessons of walking soundlessly, of listening at a deeper level to hear every sound, to watching for every flicker of movement.  These skills are translatable to every species, as I zero in on a target the cub has not seen until I point it out.  Many more lessons will be needed, so I happily look forward to more escapes into the silence of the woods…

    • Outfit:  Art & KO – Elf Archer Set.   Perfect styling for an archer, with beautiful embossed detailing!  Includes the dress, matching boots, & a quiver, all of which have gorgeous detail.  In a choice of 8 colors (or in a fatpack which allows mix ‘n match like I did).  Optional bow also included, that includes a pose (as shown in the pic).  Sized for Legacy & Maitreya.  Demo available.

  • All I Want for Christmas

    As always during December we see tons of festive events around the grind in Second Life. Today I would like to highlight one of them – coming from :: pm :: aka PurpleMoon – presenting a whole month of daily gift from the advent calendar! Today I would like to show you only some of the gifts you can get – I may post more later!

    First of all – the uber-cute Olivia dress – plaid edition! This dress was previously released with various denim textures, and now it’s customized to fit the season with the red-black-white plaid motive! This is the very first one on the advent calendar. Now wait, there’s more I put from the list of gifts…

    The Holidays Teddy! Available for holding and rezzing – don’t you just love the plaid Teddy holding a big heart saying “Happy Holidays”? This one has been available since December 4, which was yesterday!

    Now I’ll show you another gift that will be available soon from the advent calendar, but at the same time, I would like to finish the sentence on top of this post – All I want for Christmas is…you! There’s always that special someone for everyone, and as always mine is my dearest husband, Nathan! So…on this post I would like to use one of [West End]’s amazing couple poses, called “Melted” to express that. At the same time – check out my red heel slippers, which will be available on the advent calendar starting December 7!

    So what’s your wish list this Christmas? For sure, you will get a lot of gifts and a lot of fun around the grid. So let’s enjoy this festive season with our loved ones!
