The Ice Princess Cometh

ctice4af

This gorgeous gown will be yours when you find the Peace on Earth Hunt globe at Carriage Trade Miniature. Don’t let the name fool you; this dress is for full-sized avatars, not for miniatures. The main body of the dress comes in three mesh sizes, with the skirt and lace as non-mesh add-ons. I felt like a princess the moment I tried it on. 🙂

I thought this stunning dress needed an equally stunning skin, so I selected Glam Affair’s Renee Sinless 02, which I picked up at the current round of The Arcade. My hair is a past subscribo gift from ::Exile:: – still available as of today – and comes in a fatpack of nearly every color imaginable (it also has a cute, color-change bow that I pushed into my head). My Snowflake earrings are a past advent gift from *Alice Project*. And what princess is complete without a tiara? I picked up this one by Noodles at The Arcade.

Sn@tching Up Those Holiday Gifts

Snapshot_006I don’t even know where to start… I am so excited to share all of these holiday goodies with you!  Designers of Second Life have been putting out gift after gift, and I am running in circles picking them all up and snapping pictures!

Let’s start with hair – that’s always a good place to start!  Shown above, I am wearing LeLutka & Celoe‘s new group gift Vent Hair and the Mademoiselle Hat.  The Vent hair is mesh and comes in 8 colours, so you’ll be sure to find your shade!  The Mademoiselle Hat is very classy with the feather decoration and fits perfectly over the Vent hair, but you can wear the hair on it’s own, or the hat with other hair as well.  Below I am wearing LeLutka Awe Hair (also mesh) which comes with the cute little tiara and is in the Subscribomatic history!  This was last year’s gift, but if you missed it, it’s available again.  I love this hair very much and have worn it several times.  As with the Vent hair, it is available in several shades.  The tiara is even editable to hide inside the scalp if it’s too princessy for you!

Snapshot_007hh

If you are a Sn@tch VIP (200L to join), you can head down to the store and pick up a new gift called Happy Holidays from Ivey that includes the shimmering mesh Stella dresses in both gold and silver as well as the Radiance Jewelry Set including the earrings and necklace shown in the photos.  Sn@tch also has daily Countdown to Christmas gifts for their VIPs under the tree in the center of the store, a new fishing prize, and the lucky boards are freshly stocked!  I wish I had more time to show them all, because they are fantastic prizes!

The skin I am in today is O M G Belleza‘s Fifty Linden Friday Noel Skin – 50L today only.  Noel is a fair skinned sweetie with just a touch of makeup and blonde brows.

Oh… C’est La Vie!

I just accidentally washed my phone with a load of bed sheets…  so I have to remember the saying C’est la Vie!  I say that with gritted teeth while hoping the phone works once it’s dry.  Anyway… while the phone dries I escaped to SL.

C’est la vie! has the cutest dotty coco dress free for group members.  I also won the wine red tights from the group lucky board at C’est la vie!.  The C’est la vie! group is free to join.  I was looking for the perfect shoes for this dress and Love told me to head over to **Bee Make**.  The dark brown Engineer boots are a group gift at **Bee Make**.  There is a L$1 enrollment fee to join **Bee Make**.  The pretty pale skin is the newest dollarbie gift at Mother Goose’s.  While you’re there is also a new lucky skin to win.

Navidad Flurries for Miss Candy Cane

tresbeau_take22f

Today was a great day for playing in the snow… and I’m so glad I had these snuggly group gifts from Tres Beau to keep me warm! For the past few days, Tres Beau has been putting “12 Days of Christmas” gifts under the tree, all of which should add up to about 5 different, complete outfits. This one included the mesh sweater and boots, leggings, mittens, and earmuffs. The gifts are free to group members, but there is a 100L fee to join the group. Gorgeous gifts are given to members throughout the year, so the fee is most definitely worth it! My necklace was yesterday’s advent gift from Virtual Impressions – gifts are for group members, but the group is free to join. My hair is by Tableau Vivant, and I picked it up at this month’s round of The Arcade for 50L (there’s also a male version in the box). This shivery pose is part of the Freeze set by aDORKable Poses for the Peace on Earth Hunt.

Yikes, look at the time! I’d better get ready for my date tonight. Thank goodness this glittery gold outfit – including mesh leggings, blouse, and shoes – was also under the tree at Tres Beau! My hair is a previous advent gift from *Alice Project*, my earrings were a gift from Chop Zuey, and my Christmas Pearls eyes were a gift from Poetic Colors. No group-join is needed for any of these last three. My skin is the third in Glam Affair’s Amberly Frostbite collection available at Collabor88.

It’s a girl’s prerogative to change her mind, right? I’ve decided to wear this sexy little Miss Candy Cane dress instead. The dress, hat, shoes, and even jewelry were all gifts from Tres Beau (the dress comes in mesh and non-mesh versions). I’m sure to turn some heads in this outfit!

tresbeau_take15f

Here’s a close-up of my Crystalline jewelry, which includes the earrings, necklace, and ring. You can also see the cute candy canes and mistletoe conveniently placed on my hat. Ok, I know it’s really holly, but I can pretend, can’t I? 😉

Oh, and did I mention that the “12 Days of Christmas” gifts are all still available? And don’t forget to pick up the monthly group giftie  (next to the Christmas gifts) while you’re there!

Eye Just Love A Good Read!

Snapshot_006If you take a little stroll over to Amour Fashion and peek just outside the entrance doors, you’ll see that there are MORE gifts under the tree for you today!  All you need to do is join the inworld Amour Fashion group for 50L and you will gain access to all of the presents under the tree as well as the group gift inside the store.  Now, Khayman has added the Isabella Mesh Gown, Jovial Jewelled Earrings in two jewel variations and a 3 pose set!  There are 11 gifts under the tree for women now, plus the group gift inside.

These gorgeous sparkling brown eyes are a Christmas gift at Poetic Colors called Christmas Pearls.  No need to join a group – they are set up in store, priced at 0L, available in several sizes.

Snapshot_007

I simply can’t put this book down – it’s just such a good story!  The Good Read Pose I am using in this post is Ploom‘s advent pose for today, which I picked up for 25L.  It includes the book and pose.  The Flip Hair I am wearing is today’s advent hair at Ploom (100L)

Ghost of Christmas Past

Snapshot_001

The Ghost of Christmas Presents may have caught up with Serena (reference here), but it looks like The Ghost of Christmas Past caught up with me!   I won’t let that keep me down, because I am on a high from snagging all of these great goodies from Adoness!

If the 50% OFF EVERYTHING RED SALE that runs until December 24th isn’t enough to get you to go down to Adoness and check out their fashions, you might be convinced by their new group gift (only 10L to join) which is the black AuraLee Hair in Christmas Edition which comes with jewels for the bun and the tiny tartan hat with the gold bell on it.  

You should probably check out the stash  under the Christmas tree too because you will find free gifts all wrapped up for anyone to take advantage of, no need to join the group for these.  A couple of the gifts are the Christmas Ball Earrings and the Mouth Decoration, both of which come in several colours for outfit matching!  I also spied a hat/scarf combo that is super cute, but not shown in this post.

Don’t forget to check out Their Snowflake Hunt too!

The skin I am in today is called Amber, and she can be found with several options at Style by Kira after you locate the Peace On Earth Hunt icon (globe).

Traditional Alice

Snapshot_005Oh my goodness, only a few days left before Christmas – I guess I had better do the whole traditiony thing and get my tree up!  Ploom has this great Traditions Tree & Chair Set Pose that includes the holdable star for 40L for yesterday’s advent pose (Dec. 18th).

I am in looooooove with this comfy looking mesh sweater dress! This is Chandelle’s Alice Dress in Red/White that is available for 99L at The Winter Wishes Market in 5 different colours.  Yes, I know…  “Love, that’s not free!”, BUT, But, but…  The sheer half smooth tights are a dollarbie at the Chandelle display right next to these sweater dresses.  Don’t blame me if you “accidentally” pick up the sweater dresses while you are there snagging the gift 😀

Alice Project has spoiled us ladies with yet another holiday streaked hairstyle for their advent gift today!  Today you can pick up Kiera, in blonde, natural red, brown, white and black.

Spring Flowers And Winter Berries

kunglers3f

One of the wonderful things about Second Life is that when you tire of winter snow, there’s sure to be a warm-weather sim just a click away. I did a search for “garden” and wound up in this lovely, peaceful meadow – I feel like I’m in a Van Gogh painting. Look, I caught a butterfly!

kunglers5f

This gorgeous floral gown was recently sent to Kungler’s group members (check your group notices or head over to the store to pick one up). I love the way it hugs my curves in old Hollywood glam-style. The Kungler’s group is 50L to join, but every month group members receive something unique and beautiful – you won’t be disappointed! 🙂

kunglers7f

My jewelry, called Winter Berries, are advent gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. These gifts are free to everyone, and are all still available, so pop over and pick yours up. My hair and skin are not free, but are both amazing deals from “”D!va”” and Glam Affair at Collabor88. The luscious lips of the skin and the wispy strands of hair… I couldn’t resist!

kunglers16f

I think I’ll just stand here and drink in the beauty of nature for a while. It’s a long time until spring comes… in real life, that is.

Just A Couple Of Christmas Brats

xmasbrats

The other day, I showed you one of the women’s gifts at Delirium Style, but there are tons available for both men and women.  Calgon and I did a little sledding this evening at the My Grown Up Christmas List Sim, despite his fear of another snow smashing face wash after our last snow adventure.  In the photo above you will see us in our Christmas Brats Outfits that are in the giant “gift section”  at Delirium Style on the lower level.  Both outfits are complete with clothing, boots, and accessories shown and… I’m not sure about Cal’s, but mine jingles when I walk!

ETA – There is a join fee of 99L

This great sledding pose made by Atooly can be picked up at The Black Market all month for just 100L.
