A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

A Little Summer in the Winter

I think Love’s mood of needing a minute away from the Holiday rush may be catching.

A little Summer in the Winter

I love this time of year but after all the snow and reindeer and Santa red… I needed some Summer. And isn’t that one of the niftiest things about Second Life… Summer, or Spring or Fall when ever you want it.

I found my “Off” day outfit at the Wash Cart Sale at JK Style’s cart. This is the “Janet” outfit. Not only do you get the sweater and the jeans AND the boots for the 10L price tag. But you also get a HUD to change the color of the sweater to one of five colors. That’s a pretty sweet deal. The outfit comes with alphas for the boots and the top and the sweater comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L.

Even as I’m complaining about the Holiday rush, I’m taking advantage of the fantastic Christmas Advent at KittyCats. These are the  “Frost” Hoop earring from Swear, Lapoint & Bastchild. Long name… great earrings. These large hoops come with a HUD to change the metal, the bead and the charm. All told that’s six metals, five beads and four charms.

A Little Summer in the Winter

My equine companion for my escape comes from Come Soon Poses. This is Gacha machine #4  located just outside the shop and it’s a tiny 25L to play. “Best Friends” comes with the horse and pose and a huge fully build complete scene.

Tomorrow, I’ll get back to Christmas….

Giving You The Gold Shoulder ;-)

whc amerbazaar blkshirt 1

Happy Wednesday! In the spirit of the holidays, I planned to post something bright and colorful. However, wouldn’t you know it? I found something fantastic in black instead! Black is, of course, the official color of Men’s clothes in Second Life (a fact that I readily make fun of often). Sometimes, though, an item comes along too sharp-looking to be ignored, and this is one of those cases.

The Serious Shirt is this month’s free group gift from American Bazaar. It is a seriously handsome shirt combo, with the black shirt, tie and a nicely textured sweater all integrated into a sweet piece of Mesh! It is offered in Five sizes for an easy fit, and the black-on-black look and great style suits my taste to a tee. Well done, American Bazaar. Thank you for a fantastic free gift!

There is a Christmas tree at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room decorated with festive stockings which are filled with a variety of free gifts. Among them you will find the Fashion Shades from Yasum that I am wearing in the above picture. There are versions for both male and female avies. Plus, they come with a hud giving you a choice of six frame textures and four lens textures. These shades are quite stylish and the hud options make them versatile as well.

Last (but certainly not least!), there are several free gifts over at Swank Events. The one that really screamed, “Pick me up!” was a shoulder pet, of all things. I have never blogged a shoulder pet before so for it to catch my eye, you know it is something special. Heth Haute Couture has created Cosima The King of Couture – Shoulder Pet, a brilliant gold figure with bright diamond eyes. Highly detailed right down to the little crown, it is an impressive piece of work to be sure. I usually don’t wear shoulder pets. I doubt most guys do, but this is definitely eye catching and it could be just the right detail to finish off a fun outfit.

That’s it for now. With the holiday season upon us, I hope your lives are filled with joy and love. If you can’t have that, then try comfort and lust. That doesn’t sound too bad either. However things work out, best wishes to you and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Snow Angel

Snow Angel 1

I once had a mentor in my life give me a little gold stick pin that said we all had guardian angels in our lives. This gift from Paris Metro reminded me a bit of the sweet nostalgia I felt the other day when I found that small gift tucked away in my jewelry box.

This lovely gift from Paris Metro is FREE with your FREE group join, and you can get it by stopping by the main store to pick it up there. It includes system and applier layers for Belleza, Slink, and Omega, a flexi skirt, sculpted belt and back bow, the wings shown, and a beautiful lead glass ornament (not shown).

Snow Angel 2

Lazui has also put out a set of beautiful new gifts for their group members in the form of this Renata Emeralds Set. For your 250L group join fee, you can get two different necklaces, both bracelets, and two earring styles all FREE. Lazuri is generous about giving out regular gifts, so don’t let the fee deter you.

My lovely Snow Queen pose is an advent gift from Eternal Dream Poses. Yes, the advents are still going on and it’s not too late to get in on some of the advent generosity! To get this pose you have two options, pay 10L if you are short on group space (a tiny fee for such a beautiful pose) or join the group for 200L and get all the advent gifts FREE — plus gifts for the rest of the year as well! The snowflake in the picture I have tinted to gold, but it was originally blue (tinted from white). It’s modifiable, so you can tint it whatever color you like to fit your snowy scene.

Lucky Days are Lovely

“If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.” — John Irving.

This is a time of year to remember all the things we are lucky to have… and to be generous with those around us who may not be so lucky as we are. It is a time to remember that gifts are often not material, but instead life experiences… things like shared moments of joy, love, or even quiet moments of solitude in which we can reflect. And if we do have material things, now is a good time to share that generosity as well.

Lucky Days are Charmingly Beautiful 1

Many creators in second life are sharing their abilities with all of us in the form of beautiful gifts and low cost items around the grid with advents, sales, and gifts this time of year as a reminder of the generosity of the season, and the Cart Wash Sale is no different.

I felt lucky to pick up this lovely skirt and sweater outfit by Lucky Charms Fashion for only 10L. With its asymmetrically designed skirt and cowl neck sweater, it’s really a standout. The skirt itself is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the sweater comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya and Slink fit too. Your mere 10L get’s you both pieces of the set together in one package.

Lucky Days are Charmingly Beautiful 2

The Lucky Charms cart at the Cart Wash was a real find in my opinion, as I also picked up this set of Xmas Heels in red for Slink high feet — again for just 10L. They matched the skirt and sweater combination perfectly, and what’s more… all of it is lovely not only for a winter outfit, but would pass for any day of the year, as the designs are simple and classic patterns that will never go out of style.

To give my outfit a bit of holiday cheer, I added a pair of FREE advent earrings that I picked up from the advent Calendar at Chop Zuey. This pair of Let it Snow earrings is from the FREE (no group needed) side and you can buy them for 0L, just stop by the in world store and pick them up for FREE. The detailing on these earrings is simply delightful!

Lady in red

Happy Monday everyone! I’m back with some more goodies from both The Wash Cart Sale and the KittyCatS advent Calendar, plus I have news of a sale you don’t want to miss if you love makeup and nail appliers!

hangover2hangover3

My pretty mesh dress, with the daringly low neckline, and matching wedge shoes, both called Love Hangover, are from the Entice cart at the Wash Sale. So, naturally, each of these pieces are only L$10! The dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and the shoes are for SLink high feet. I love the little lace detailing around the neckline of the dress. You only have until Jan 6 for this round of the Cart Sale, so I wouldn’t suggest waiting too long.

Hangover1

So..I mentioned a sale! La Boheme is having a huge sale right now, all makeup and nail appliers, not including already discounted items or hunt prizes, are 60% off until Dec 31st. Naturally, I had to go pick up some for myself. You can never have too many, you know? With the 60% discount on makeup, they end up being L$30 a pack, and nail appliers, are only L$20. I really had a hard time choosing, but I think I picked some pretty good ones to show you. The makeups are tattoo layers only, and the nail appliers are for SLink, Omega and Maitreya.

Finally, see those pretty circular earrings in the picture above? They are the day 18 gift for the KittyCatS Advent, and are from Kunglers. What’s really nice about this free gift is that you also get a pair of gold earrings, which are not exactly the same as the silver ones I am wearing.

Phew, I must run now. Still so many things to do before Christmas, and not enough time to do it. I will be back though! Until next time, TTFN:)

Purely Pretty

Purely Pretty 1

The holiday rush is upon me, but I decided to take a moment today to reflect, enjoy some time with coffee by the fire, and read a good book. For me that meant a favorite pair of jeans and letting my hair down.

If you haven’t stopped by the Cart Wash sale yet, now is the time to do so. Many designers are participating, and nothing is over 10L. I picked up this fabulous pair of Bia jeans by Tiffany Designs for just 10L. They come in traditional system layers, but I was thrilled to see that my mere 10L expenditure also got me layers for mesh bodies (Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza).

The Tiffany Cart also had a beautiful FREE holiday gift set out for shoppers, be sure to stop by to pick that up!

Purely Pretty 2

If you will remember, I recently showed you one of two MINA Hair VIP group gifts HERE. I donned the other one in these pictures. This style called Hanne 02 is simply lovely for a relaxing day away from the holiday hustle and bustle. It is yours FREE with your group tag active. If you are not currently in the group, it will cost you 200L to join, but remember, you get 2 gifts monthly (full fat packs) so that easily makes the fee worth it.

To finish off my look, I checked out the growing number of gifties at the Chop Zuey advent calendar. This gift is from the group required side for day 1 and is called The Violet Flame of Purity. It is FREE with your group tag (the group is 350L to join) but the gifts are going to be generous. That small fee is going to get you 12 days of gifts for the advent alone – both men’s and women’s plus gifts through out the coming new year. This set included not only the color change necklace and bracelet shown in the pictures above, but also a pair of earrings that I am not showing. Well worth the fee to join the group!

Who says there’s a dress code for tree decorating?

So, am I the only one that will sometimes put on pretty lingerie and heels, and then do something like decorate my Christmas tree dressed like that…alone? Well, if you haven’t, you should!

TreeLingerie1

My lingerie is yet another fabulous KittyCatS Advent gift, this time, from Blacklace. The Katy : Red and White set is available, free for everyone, in day number 13. You get every possible system layer you could think of, cute little mesh bow attachments (you get a good view of the one on the back in one of my other pictures), as well as an Omega appliers hud for the mesh bodies and body parts that are Omega compatible. I actually went over to the Omega store to get the hud to set up my SLink feet to be Omega enabled so I could use the hud for the stockings.

TreeLingerie2

Speaking of stockings, I needed sexy shoes to compliment them and my new lingerie. The Lindy Shoes booth at the Wash Cart Sale totally helped me out there. I picked up the Oreil shoes in red, for SLink high feet, for only L$10! This is why I love the Wash Cart Sale. You really can’t beat a great bargain:) There are a variety of shoes and boots for you to grab from this booth, both for SLink feet, as well as system feet.

TreeLingerie3

Now, while you are at the Wash sim for the Cart Sale, picking up your shoes, make sure you head over to the new monday booth for some sweet tattoos and funky face paints. New monday is actually a new project from our very own Julianna Seriman, blogger extraordinaire, turned body artist:) I really liked how the Sweet Rose tattoo I picked up, for only L$10, ended up being framed perfectly with the back of my bra. Like they were meant to go together. Oh, and if you are into Fantasy type RP, you really should take a look at the face paints that are at the booth. You really let your imagination run wild Juli!

OK, lastly, the festive tree I am decorating. It is 1 part of a 3 part gift, again free from the KittyCatS Advent, for day 8, from Zanze. You get a pose and decor set, of which I am showing off the tree and ornaments, the pose that you get is for 2 people, and is really cute. You also get a gift for the guys, and a gift for the ladies. See, everyone will be happy!

Now that I am finished the tree, I’m going to go bake some cookies or something. Hmm…maybe not such a good idea to be in the kitchen and dealing with hot things with so much skin exposed. Wardrobe change! Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you again soon. Until then, TTFN:)
