Ice ice baby

… my attempt to catch up on all the holiday sales.

Ice ice baby

As I mentioned before, I haven’t been home much around the holidays. In fact, I’ll be leaving again later today. So when I did get online, I ran to grab as many holiday gifts and bargains as I could. So, what am I wearing in the picture:

My first stop was G-field. There I picked up the dress and necklace for free. I also got my self A LOT of shoes. Because all red and white (and also some silver and gold items) are 50% off, until January 3.

Next stop was Collabor88. The latest collection has been out for a while, but I hadn’t gotten around to visiting yet. Bought some things there too. Among them my skin (by Tres blah) and the hair (by Clawtooth).

The last, perhaps rather obvious, new thing in the picture is my latest KittyCatS! purchase, called Blue. He is from the new KittyCatS! Winter Collection 2011, and he is an Ice Baby. I’ve had him for a while, but hadn’t done much more with him then unbox him and give him a dish of food. He matched my dress so well, he got to be in the picture with me.

Don’t we look cute together?

  • Hair – Clawtooth (bubbles.clawtooth)
  • Skin – Tres Blah (julliette.westerburg)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)

I haven’t been home the past few days, visiting family to celebrate Christmas. So I haven’t had much time to blog. Actually, I didn’t even get near to a computer at all.

But I can present to you the next letter for the alphabet challenge. To use the old cooking-show phrase: here’s one I prepared earlier!

With Love

… items from the With Love, Again Hunt.

With love

When hunts were a new thing in Second Life, I really liked them. But as more and more hunts were organised, I really started to develop a case of hunt-burn out. Thankfully, around that time, I discovered the Seraphim blog. Knowing just what you’re looking for, is a big motivator.

But sometimes you still get surprising items. In this case my shoes. Nothing wrong with them, mind you. But the HUD had me totally baffled.

With love... why?

A glow option? On shoes? Why on earth would I want my feet to glow like toxic waste?

Ideas anyone?

O

… week 15 of the Alphabet Challenge.

O

And O is for “O dear… I’m late with this one!” And because I won’t be home much during the holidays, expect that to be next letter’s phrase as well!

Looking at my avatar in this outfit, I can’t help but shiver. Hopefully she doesn’t catch a cold dressed like that. I promise to give her a coat after you guys are done looking at her…

I like Lemon Tea

… and I also like their new Tinsel Tree Dress.

I like Lemon Tea

As soon as I saw a picture of Lemon Tea’s offering for the latest edition of Perfect WARdrobe, I knew I had to have it. Just the right amount of Christmas vibe, without being cliché. The dress is a fully rigged mesh that can’t be modified. So to give more fitting options, you also get a no top/rigged skirt and an unrigged modifiable mesh top. It also comes with alpha layers.

The top half of the fully rigged version did not fit me. Not even a little bit. So I tried the rigged skirt/unrigged top option and that fitted me a lot better. It still showed a bit more boob then I liked however, so I paired it with a black shirt. You know, to keep this blog decent ;)

The Tinsel Tree Dress is available in gold, silver, red and green. All colours come with both silver and gold trim.

  • Hair – Alice Project (alice.demonia)—> mesh item
  • Skin – Tres Blah (julliette.westerburg)
  • Eyeliner – Kyoot (saeya.nyanda)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – How Vexing! (sei.minuet)
  • Dress – Lemon Tea (sei.minuet)—> mesh item
  • Shirt and Tights – Jane (janie.marlowe)
  • Shoes – Shiny Things (fallingwater.cellardoor) Group gift
  • Catnip mouse – Atomic (ivy.graves) No longer available
  • Pose – E.ink (empty.inkpen)

… week 14 of the Alphabet Challenge.

And my struggle through this blogger challenge continues. For N I dug out some more stuff, that has been in my inventory for ages.

The outfit is by Sn@tch and I have to admit I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Sn@tch items. Namely: I like them on everybody else, but I hate them on myself. Not sure why really, but they just never seem to look right when I wear them. Is my shape so very different? Or am I just being difficult… probably that, really…

  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully) – Nayla
  • Skin – Fishy Strawberry (fae.eriksen) – Natalie
  • Outfit – Sn@tch (ivey.deschanel) – Nutcracker – Stumblebum Edition
  • Shoes – Decoy (annette.voight) – Jully Boots – Navy

Crisp and Clean

…week 11 of the SL Weekly Words Challenge.

Crisp and Clean

I finally got it done! I just couldn’t get a good idea for this week’s word. Possibly because with a 14 month old toddler crawling around in RL, crisp and clean usually doesn’t last for very long…

But anyway, I just kept thinking of a French maid. So I made a trip to Deviance and bought the French Maid Costume 2.0. I decided to try and do a more emoted picture this week. I’ve never really done that before, so I thought this would be as good an opportunity as any to give it a try.

So for Crisp and Clean I give you: The Neko Maid. And as you can see… cats DO knock things over.

  • Hair – Lamb (lamb.bellic)
  • Skin – Glam Affair (aida.ewing)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – How Vexing! (sei.minuet)
  • Outfit – Deviance (surreal.leshelle)
  • Shoes – Nardcotix (nardya.rousselot)

… week 13 of the Alphabet Challenge.

M

And M is for… My god I’m actually wearing items that aren’t ancient!

So, what am I wearing? My entire outfit, without the shoes, is by M*Motion. This store sells cute outfits for a very reasonable price. The sweater with skirt, tights and stole are all sold separately. And they’re all available in different colours, so you can mix and match as you like.

The outfit cost me L140 in total. But if that is too much for you, you can always join the in-world group, and stalk the lucky boards for a free version. That group also gives you access too a selection of group-gifts. So basically… why are you still here?

  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Skin – Mamboo Chic (leona.olivieri) – Group gift
  • Eyeliner – Miamai (monica.outlander)
  • Outfit – M*Motion (mame.tunwarm)
  • Shoes – Duh! (renee.harvy) – Mary Janes Black
