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. Both are available at The Liaison Collaborative through December 30. You just need to add music and imagination.

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

I’m Not Afraid Of Spiders

While I am not a spider lover, I’m not afraid of them. I hate walking through their webs (and have the dance moves to prove it), but if I see a spider inside, I leave it be. They love eating bugs, for which I am grateful.

So without a moment’s hesitation, I slipped this little fellow around my throat and threaded his mates through my ears. The Spiders Jewelry Set from .::Nanika::. is available at The Liaison Collaborative, which just opened a few hours ago. The set comes with a texture-change HUD for both the choker and earrings, so you can mix or match as you like.

You may also notice a few blemishes, freckles and wrinkles on my cheeks and around my eyes. I love the subtle look provided by Izzie’s, also available at TLC. With this HUD, you can add 16 different variations of these marks. I found these work better on lighter skin tones, so I changed my *Birth* Rose appliers from Tone 04 down to 03. This item is available for LeLutka, Catwa and Omega, all sold separately.

These new things will leave you squirming in a good way. I may not be afraid of spiders, but don’t even get me started on snakes!
