Happy Christmas Eve everyone, I am so excited for Christmas and today is one of my favourite days, plus the fact it’s Sunday which is my favourite day of the week, so I’m in a giddy mood lol. This will be my last post for a few days, requirements for the month all met I want to take a few days off to have a well deserved and well needed break, enjoy time to relax with family, spend time with loved ones, eat and drink too much, yeah you know the routine lol.
Firstly though I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, enjoy everyone moment, remember those not with us, hug and remind those that are with us what they mean to us, and yes it should be at any time of the year not just Christmas.
I also wanted to say thank you for all your support this year, your kind words, comments, favs, shares etc. I really do love being a part of the blogger community and look forward to more ahead.
Hello everyone, hope your week is going well, only one more day til the weekend and even more exciting only 4 days til Christmas, hard to believe but then again I can tell by the amount of shopping, wrapping etc etc etc I’m doing lol.
I took time this week for a collaboration with my bestie and partner in crime Exis, always so much fun, we don’t do it often, busy with our own blogs, lives, sponsors so even though we talk on and off from morning til bedtime daily, we don’t often see each other in world so makes it even more special when we do.
Exis and I have known each other a number of years now, met in another virtual reality world online and became best friends quickly lol I actually still recall the first thing said was her messaging me how to do this special sitting glitch people knew there lol, sounds funny I know but still it’s how it all began. From convincing her to come to SL to getting her avi all set up because anyone who knows Exis knows it has to be the best lol she won’t settle for less nor should she. To her starting her own blog, she has to be one of the most creative girls I know, she just has this sense of what goes, what looks good with what, so yes as her blog suggested she was given gentle pushes to start her blog, which I helped her with for quite some time, I’m pretty sure most of you know her by now but in case you don’t check out her blog, I may be biased but she is amazing at what she does, seeing her go from posting pictures on her SL wall to the amazing blogger she is today, I’m a very proud best friend
Thank you E for always being by my side, supporting, encourging, helping and being the bestest bestie I could hope for, enough mushy stuff now, I love ya and here’s to wonderful things for both of us in 2018
It’s Christmas time, a time of joy and celebration, of making new friends and holding old friends near. This year has not been the best but I’m looking forward to a year of renewal, of starting over and getting my life back together. I’m looking for the good in things, not the bad. The other day my friend Ellen posted about doing collaborations with other bloggers, I simply commented “I’m shy” because I am really. I hate imposing or feeling that I am imposing on anyone, but Ellen wanted to collaborate. I got to talk to her a bit and learn some more about her. I already knew she did fantastic pictures and her blog was pretty amazing, what I didn’t know though is that she’s only been in Second Life a little over a year and she only started blogging on a real basis back in June of this year. Color me surprised, her photography looks like she’s been at this for years! Make sure to go give her blogand Flickrsome love, she’s earned it.
I don’t typically credit the stuff from the other person’s look but the only other person but I had the forethought to get her items too, that really makes all the difference in the world, but you can check out her blog too for her credits:Blues for Christmas.
Ellen was going to build a scene because let’s admit it she’s a far better decor blogger than I am, but the stress of getting something together was not the goal of this post, we wanted to have fun and share our unique styles. I suggest a sim that I have come to enjoy for my photography, there is a stunning ballroom and you can rez there when you join the free group.
Choosing what to wear may have been the hardest part, but when I showed Ellen this fabulous gown from Lybra she was “let’s do that, I’ll go grab one”. It was then just a matter for me to decide which color would compliment hers.
Dress *new*: Lybra – Ara Light Blue (Ellen) and Blue (Nickie) –FaMESHed
That’s where the similarities end, however, Ellen is a stunning redhead, whereas I prefer blonds. Ellen chose a stunning, long hair from Truth whereas I wanted a cute and cute hair. This hair from Magika is brand new and available at the main store location in all four HUD color options.
I’ve been living in my brand new LAQ Scarlet MoCap head so when I went to Kustom9 and saw that one of my all-time favorite skin makers had made a LAQ applier I had to have it. This applier comes in 7 skin tones and has a very cute sprinkling of freckles across the cheeks and nose.
Ellen uses her own shape but I purchased one from Quenby, I’m not very good at making my face pretty so I buy a shape and then modify my body and leave the face alone. This shape is so cute and very youthful.
Shape *new*: Quenby – Scarlet for LAQ Scarlet MoCap
I chose this gorgeous eyeshadow from SlackGirl, it is available right now at Appliquè. It comes with an Omega HUD including 8 colors and system tattoo layers as well. These shadows are just gorgeous. For the closeup look of Ellen please visit her blog.
I wanted a necklace to compliment this stunning dress and hopped around a few events before I remembered that Just Because had a new necklace at Pay It Forward. This event is a gifting event so you can purchase items to give as gifts or keep them for yourself. This necklace comes with a HUD that includes 7 metals and 22 gems. It is truly a stunning piece.
Dark Passions – Koffin Nails is at Imaginarium with a brand new gacha. This gacha is so much fun and includes 14 commons and 1 rare. They are made for Slink, Omega and Maitreya nails. Remember, if you have Maitreya to play that machine as Omega does not work with Maitreya.
Lots of pretty little things in this post...sweet items we girls just can't live without! First up, and I must mention quickly because Midnight Monthly Madness is ongoing now, and Slipper Originals' jewelry set Cadence has already been snapped up! Don't worry, there's always last chance. :) Next up, is another must-have from Slipper Originals - Cadence Bento Rings available at NOON! Keep your eyes on the clock because these come up for grabs in two hours from my posting time.
More adorable tinies! *CNZ* has released the Baby Star Bindi for The Grab. Isn't it cute? And Sassitude released some marvy mesh nails with a texture hud; this set is called Tres Chic. I'm becoming a mesh nail convert with lovely designs such as these! I'm also wearing my Omega (or system) eye applier in a lovely blue by MUSA. This beautiful set is available to We <3 Roleplay this month, along with a special Christmas set of applier peepers!
I re-fell in love with my Catwa Catya Bento head when I put on League's Sadie Shape. The head shape remains untouched so pretty is the shape! Yeah, I know, I'm kinda mesh head fickle between Catwa and Lelutka. It could be worse! The two brands are as far as I've ventured with mesh heads. So far. :p
