Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Deadwool & Pie

Deadwool

Walking off the pie…

I admit, I had one too many slices of pumpkin pie 🍰, and YES I made it! So I decided to take a little stroll to burn off some excess holiday calories. When I was out waiting on a bench shopping the other day, I happened to buy a few Christmas presents for myself. Anyone who knows me is astonished that I actually SPENT MONEY on myself or anyone else, (the present I got Love only cost $10L.. shhhh). I have been told ever since I came back that I HAVE to shop at Deadwool. I found out they had the Erik Gloves as a FREE group gift and I was in the door. And that’s where It went downhill from there….

They get you with the marketing every time…

I picked up the gloves and then looked slightly to my left and I saw it… The Mesh Duster… My mind was racing… I want this… I NEED THIS!  The logical side of my brain was saying “You don’t even know if it fits”. I instinctively clicked for a demo. “Great, it fits… no, no It wasn’t supposed to fit.” Time to do the math… I can buy one. OR I can buy the fatpack of three (because I know in hindsight I always wish I gotten the fatpack.. as you will see). So I put down $899L for the fatpack and greedily opened it up like a child opening up presents under the tree.

Baring my chest or not…

I need a shirt to go under the jacket. “The simplest thing would be to just get a shirt here” my mind was in full spend mode at this point. It was time I took control again. I decided I could find a free or cheap option elsewhere. TL:DR I ended up back at Deadwool l and purchased the Hugo black denim shirt for $360L. Yes, I lost that battle with my own brain. Now my brain says I should have bought the whole shirt fatpack… Dang, it was right again. I did manage to save myself some money on the pants. I picked up the Peter Outfit by TentatioN, a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge and used the pants to make this great look.

Accessorize then exercise…

I already mentioned I got the Erik Gloves at Deadwool  (where this long story began). I Also picked up two gifts under the Christmas tree at CosmopolitanA&D Clothing has provided the Top Gun Glasses as a FREE group gift. I finished off the look with the  Meva Scarf another FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]. I did use the color change HUD to give it a completely different look. After all this spending, I was a bit stressed out. Now you know why I went on a pie 🍰 binge and why I’m walking to work off those added pounds. It’s such a “chore” to keep your body fit SL. :🍰

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).
