Still Life With Redhead

1 Eve & Apple sm

As Christmas nears, I am getting busier and busier. I know that’s nothing special; everyone is these last few weeks. The season of giving requires a lot of taking, too: taking of time, energy, money and patience as we battle through the traffic and crowds to complete our Christmas preparations.

When it gets to be too much, it is nice to be able to just sit for a while, enjoy the calm of our surroundings and just breathe. No need for movement; just blending in with the scenery.

You can create your own still life* by just checking through the shopping list I have provided below.

All I Want For Christmas

1 All I Want For Christmas sm

All I want for Christmas is something warm and furry and cuddly, that will keep me warm and smiling. Little Coco here (Chanel, of course!) will fit the bill perfectly. She’s all of that, and is happy to give me kisses, whether we’re under the mistletoe or not.

You can bring your mistletoe for smooches anywhere with this beautiful hair ribbon from Astralia, available at Christmas on 34th Street. It comes in six different colours (and of course, a fatpack) and gives you three different messages to choose from on the tag. You can keep it for yourself or gift it, since it’s transferable.

Wear it, and give your loved one all he wants for Christmas.

When The Bough Breaks

1 Cold Out sm

Winter is slowly finding its way to Second Life. While there are still some sims sporting autumn colours and some that just stay the same summery or springy style all year round, there are more and more opportunities to frolic in the virtual snow. Pull on some snug boots, throw on your favourite jeans and toss on a sexy jacket and you’re prepped for stepping out or just lounging on the nearest branch.

Since I didn’t get to partake of Thanksgiving dinner this year, I’m hoping I’ll be able to get out of this pose before the bough breaks.

This cute jacket will be 50% off at Apple May Designs on November 29th for Lazy Sunday. It comes in a variety of colours – something that will suit your mood, I’m certain. The boots by fri.day are available at Kustom9 through Dec. 10th. You can check the credits for all of the other goodness.
