Happy Holidays

christmas

As some of you may know, I have moved halfway around the world from my family. This means that all previous traditions are off the table and I have to make my own. This year that entails a delicious Deer & Beer Stew, a scary movie and tomorrow I leave for Miami, Florida. It’s going to be a week of Sun, Beaches, Art, Friends & Fun.

So, until Next Year!

All it takes is a little Glam

glamistry21

I know, there’s been a lot of snow and winter talk in the blog lately. So i decided today I would do something a little different. I found this little dress from Bens Beauty at an event I can no long remember the name of (please, designers, put a note or something in the folder with the event it was in, I visit dozens, I can’t always remember which one your item was at). Thankfully, I don’t have to remember, because it’s now at the mainstore, so you can get it there.

I decided to pair the dress with the new beautiful heels from Glamistry. For today only you can get the black and white version of these for the 21 Shoe event at a discounted price. I’m very impressed with their HUD system. When you buy the shoe the first time you get the shoe and the HUD. If you then want to buy additional colors, it just adds it on to your existing HUD. No extra hassles, just re-attach the HUD and the colors pop up automagically. What’s even better is you can use the colors to color different parts of the shoe to make it your own as shown above. I’m sold.

Baby, it’s cold

I still haven’t seen a single snowflake in my part of the world. It’s starting to get a little frustrating. Rumor has it that tomorrow we might get some, cross your fingers for me. Meanwhile I’m running around SL looking like Christmas threw up on me, which is exactly how I like it right now.

Unbothered

snowprincess

My good friend Sarah recently showed plurk her latest pose and prop creation. For the event Fit for a Princess, she made a series of snowflurry poses inspired by a certain frosty Princess. I’m still longing for snow, so I picked them up and made this snowy picture. I’ve been trying new techniques to get certain ambiance in pictures, for this I was going for a colder feel, obviously. If you’re interested in seeing the original, unedited picture, you can find it here.

The Longest Slumber

A couple of days ago I received a pose one of my plurk friends Vaki had made. She had done a gorgeous shot with it and I just had to have the pose (and her skills, kthxbai). She kindly offered it to me and I promised I’d show her the end results. I was inspired and ended up with this photo, in which I’ve used some new to me photoshop techniques. It’s always fun to try new things and I think I like this photo. The pose isn’t available for purchase unfortunately, but maybe one day… -hint nudge hint to Vaki-

Winter is not coming fast enough

I’ll admit, I’m completely ready for winter. I’m ready for snow and chilly winters, nice sweaters and hot cocoa. So I winterized my skybox. I really like it, feels very cozy to sit in my cottage, in front of the fire and see the snow fall outside.

Wardrobe problems

I never thought I’d say this but… I have way too much to wear. My inventory is bursting with fancy things I want to show you guys and new things keep popping up. It’s just a flurry of awesome outfits and I stand in the middle complete confused as to what to show you first.

So I gave myself some rules. Before I can go shopping for new stuff, i have to put together an outfit I can blog out of the stuff I already have. That way I’ll create one at least once a day (yes, I shop too much) and have a whole row of outfits lined up for blogposts. Keep your fingers crossed I’ll be able to keep it this way too.

For todays outfit I’m wearing a fall coat from coldLogic. I love this color and how cozy it looks, yet stylish. I would wear this in real life, if I could find it.

I’m also wearing the Ambrosia hair from Truth which I have completely fallen in love with. Someting about the stark edge on the bangs that just speaks to me. You can find it at Uber Macabre this month and it comes with a cool looking headband as well.

They call me Red

This tanktop from Sn@tch is one of my all time favorite staples. I bought it back 2012 and then again when the appliers for Lola came. It’s just such a well made top and comes in a plethora of colors, perfect for layering. At the top of my wishlist right now is Physique appliers for this top. Pretty please, Ivey?
