Christmas Countdown

Christmas is almost here and I am so excited! It’s my favorite holiday and seriously, I’ve been planning the festivities since like, June. I don’t do too much decorating in SL for Christmas, simply because  it comes and goes so fast that by the time I get around to finishing a project, it’s time to tear it down again. But, I do love hoarding everything Christmas. And winter. And holidays. No wonder my inventory is so big.

Nevertheless, it’s that time of year and with designers releasing their wares and events such as Tannenbaum and the Arcade introducing their seasonal rounds, there is stuff everywhere!

I’ve played around with yet another tablescape for Christmas. What can I say? It’s a hobby! I’ve been in love with this new French Dining Set from Moss & Mink since it came out and I knew instantly that I wanted to do something elegant for the holidays. The table and chairs both include a hud to change the textures and patterns. In my mind, I pictured something with lots of white and gold, but then I saw this floral pattern for the chairs with blues, greens and reds and that idea went out the window.

My prized decor from What Next and goodies from the up and coming December round of the Arcade round out my holiday dining room and Christmas Feast!

Afternoon Delight

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya
Bermuda, Bahama,
come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego,
baby why don’t we go…

Boy, am I still wishing I was on vacation! Even though I have the day off, the rest of me is already groaning about having to go back to work. It definitely takes at least a week to get back into the right mindset after a week off, so I am using the best parts of the afternoon to relax, jamming to the Beach Boys and wearing this cute tassle-kini from Foxes and lovely heels from Glamistry.

The bikini is from last months round of the Luxe Box, with registration ending in just two short days in order to receive your July package! Remember, you can still purchase them inworld if you miss a month, but it’s going to cost you that additional L$500, so hurry and sign on up before it’s too late!

I’ve also been redoing my sim… again. And, even though I typically start a new theme before I finish setting up the current one (much to Petey’s dismay) I still enjoy snapping pictures all over the place. Despite living in Florida, I am currently enjoying the tropical flavor in SL as well!

I Think I Wanna Marry You

Hey there readers!

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I promise I have not disappeared! In fact, I am gearing up to return steadily here soon. With being caught up in that pesky business of real life and a hard on for sim design of late, I’ve been a little lazy when it comes to posting. I’ll make it up to you, I promise!

In the meantime, Petey and I are celebrating our two year partnership and it’s made me a little giddy towards all the fun stuff that goes into renewing our vows. It also brings back fond memories of the passed three years we’ve actually been together, and all the dumb people who made us that much closer.

I wanted to do a pretty shot that would incorporate our impending nuptials and the lovely pair of shoes I’ve chosen, from Glamistry. They’re not a new release by any means, but are definitely one of my favorite pairs. I just love the simple elegance of the high heel (sans platform) and the added touch of bling on the side.
