Christmas Eve

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 blog and Flickr some 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.

The only addition we made to the scene is this gorgeous Christmas tree from Jian. Available right now at FaMESHed, this tree comes in a pack with a HUD to change multiple things about your tree.

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.

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.

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.

One Thousand & One Arabian Nights at Enchantment!


Enchantment opens today, and the lineup is stunning! I am one truly fortunate blogger to have the opportunity to share with you so many of the wonderful creations for your shopping consideration. The theme for this round is One Thousand & One Arabian Nights, and runs from August 12th through 31st. 

Sergeanne Golon (a husband and wife team)* wrote a wonderful collection of historical romance novels called Angélique, published originally in 1956. Our French heroine spanned the globe in her pursuit of love. The story of Angélique will forever be my favorite romance to read and reread (the movies are great too if you can get your hands on them, starring Michèle Mercier, beautiful actress). The character's sensuality, fearlessness and indomitable nature is revealed in epic proportions, much like idea of the many stories told for One Thousand & One Arabian Nights!  

One of the books in the set is called Angélique and the Sultan (alternatively, Angélique in Barbary). My avie will be channeling Angélique in my Enchantment posts this month. Will she be able to resist the Sultan?

* Sadly, Anne Golon passed away recently, with more to the story unfinished.
