Winter Is Only Three Months Long

Merry Christmas, everyone. While the day nears its end on the topside of the world, it is moving along toward evening on Boxing Day here on the other side. I wish for everyone a festive season and I hope that all your Christmas wishes came true.

If you are lucky enough to have a few Lindens leftover after today, treat yourself to this lovely dress and coat from Salt & Pepper, available at Uber. The dress will be perfect for a New Year’s Eve party and the coat will keep you cozy as you make your way to the event. The earrings from [ILAYA] at The Liaison Collaborative through December 30 are a lovely accessory to compliment the sparkle of the dress. And if you are a Maitreya VIP, don’t miss out on the seven group gifts set out underneath the tree at the main store. Onyx Leshelle has released updated versions of some of my favourites with Lara fit. The Radical boots were my go-to footwear prior to the release of Lara, so I am super happy to have this gorgeous burgundy pair!

Don’t let the cold get you down. It is a wondrous season and remember, it’s only three months long.

Sugarplum Fairy

Christmastime conjures up images of Sugarplum Fairies dancing in your dreams. It is not a far stretch to create this mystical being with the First Snow Make-Up Set from Izzie’s and this pretty bodysuit and skirt from the gacha machine by ERSCH.

And she danced and she danced until she could dance no more.

Glory

It’s almost time for the latest round of Midnight Madness, the throwback event that showcases beautiful gifts from talented creators with limited quantities, yours just for a quick slap of the board. This month, Salt & Pepper has two brand new gifts for the midnight and noon boards, the Gloria blouse and skirt. The blouse is available at midnight (just about 7 hours from now) with the skirt on the board at noon tomorrow. The gift colours are white for the blouse and sparkly silver for the skirt, but you can purchase add-on HUDs for both for only 199L each to give you a whole variety of choices.

There are limits of 1500 on each item, but “Last Chance Vendors” will go live on Sunday at 12:00 am SLT and will give you the last chance to pick up the gifts for a very discounted price between 25 – 50 LS . The amount of gifts is not limited, but the vendors will be live for 24 hours only. After that period the exclusive colors will not be available again.

You can check out the blog post for a countdown timer to the event to make sure you don’t miss out, and there is a link just below the clock to the current catalogue of goodies available. It is worth a peek, as some designers offer discounts on last chance purchases for group membership, which is listed below the vendor photos.

Do a little sim hopping, slap some boards and come out the other side in all of your glory.
