A New York Christmas

Sometimes my pictures go through many metamorphoses, sometimes the first shot is perfect. Today was one of those that I edited and re-edited, took multiple shots, and finally came up with a photo array that I could be proud of. I carefully chose each item I wanted to feature today and I wanted pictures that did them justice. I hope you agree that the end result was worth the effort.

Yes, this is the third time I am sharing this tree from Swallow, but look how pretty it is. Today I chose the red and gold version to share. This tree comes in four colors in two prim options for each color. You could literally have a tree in every room of your home. They are copiable and modifiable which is how this tree is so little in comparison to my previous two blogs. If you’d like to see the other options I blogged check out O Christmas Tree and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

I also included, once again, this amazing garland from SAYO. This garland, along with it’s matching wreath is available right now at FaMESHed. It is modifiable so this time I resized it to fit where I needed it to and changed the ribbons from white to red.

The bar and super cute lights were to add ambiance. The bar is from Moon’s Artistic Creations and it includes a giver script that will hand you a drink. Perfect for any party. The lights, from Half Deer, come with 3 different coiled types and are lit up. I think that both of these items just added fantastically to my party atmosphere.

Who says tattoos can’t be classy and formal? Not me that’s for sure and I wanted to share with you this stunning tattoo by Absence. It was released for the brand new Distrcit 23 event that started in November and is coming back December 23. It is at this time not available on the Marketplace and she does not have an inworld store, but keep an eye out because this tattoo is amazing. The HUD has both fresh and faded options for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as Omega and Catwa, face tattoo for the neck. I didn’t realize this event was already closed and had a hard time finding an end date so I apologize for the lateness.

This picture alone went through 3 versions. I had a really hard time getting just the right look for this picture. Normally, when I wear a formal gown I do some type of updo hair but I wanted something a little more edgy to go with the entire look. I decided to head over to Lamb Hair since I hadn’t been there for a while and discovered not one, but two group gifts. Join the free Lamb group and pick up this stunning hair.
