{ Snowbunny Style } from Events all around the Grid!

Snowflake-full_FINAL

Hi guys and girlies! Exposeur put out this super cute photo prop box full of snowflakes and baubles on Cyber Monday and I grabbed it up quick knowing I would put it to use for some fun wintery shots.  And since The Liaison Collaborative‘s “Winter Harvest” round is wrapping up in just 6 more days to get ready for a new theme starting December 15th, I have added the lit trees from Pixel Mode.  I’m also featuring the snowflake sweater by Coquet, casual and comfy along with the {Wicked Peach}‘s rosy cheeks.  All available at TLC until December 14th.  Coldlogic just released a bunch of new seasonal clothing the past few weeks, lots of coats and leggings… like the ones I’m wearing.  And there are many other events around the grid right now featuring stylin’ snow lover winterwear.. The Arcade Gacha event that opened Dec 1st runs for the whole month and has lots of frosty finds like ATOMIC‘s adorable bunny scarf and mittens.  And FaMESHed that just opened on the 1st as well is where i snagged the sweet knit hat w/hair by Tableau Vivant and this lovely snowflake necklace by Cae’s.  N21 is in full swing and had the perfect silvery boots by REIGN to complete my style.  All this wouldn’t be complete without the cool “Lola” skin by Belleza out now for the “Winter Trend” Fair.

Snowflake-close_FINAL

{ There’s a Beauty in Walking Away }

Train-full_draftI’m always on the lookout for beautiful new spots in SL to take photos and Flickr is always a great place to scour through the many photos and see where others are travelling around the grid.. I happened upon this lovely new little town setting called Jade Fawn made by the uber talented Felicity Blumenthal.  She’s not only an awesome blogger and photographer, but really amazing at interior and exterior design.  I kind of fell in love with the lonely little train station there and because it was the perfect winteresque setting for my idea, i plopped down my luggage and waited for my train.

Train-close_draft

The new Tilton winter coat and dress combo from ColdLogic paired very well with the exclusive Kourtney Booties from LaRoo and then topped off with the new GizzA felt hat, and a classic snowy white and black outfit was born.  By the way, that luggage from .Infiniti. is color-changing annnnd chocked full of poses as well, so they are pretty and practical!

Hope everyone has a great start to winter in SL!

Nun-sense_FINAL

More Coldlogic, people!  And ok, yes I know the irony in this pic is humorous considering I am not the ‘Nun-ly’ type.  But I couldn’t help that when I saw this outfit at ColdLogic, it was the first inspiration that came to mind and I just ran with it.  Matched with Maxi Gossamer’s rosary-looking cross chains, and I feel like the modern Nun.  No offense intended to those of Catholic faith, but I have heard stories of what happens when you were out of line and the head mistress had to break out her ruler. 😛  Best behave in my classroom I think!

As an aside, I didn’t take the photo at any convents in SL (and I didn’t bother to look really) because the old classroom style I was looking for was easily found at the Mischief Managed sim.  If you haven’t been to visit yet, it really is a must-see especially if you love Harry Potter.  But even if you don’t, there is plenty to appreciate about the intricate details of this build.  So go check it out!

Fall 1-Full_FINAL

As promised I have some more newness from ColdLogic to show off to you.  I decided to also make it a part of Strawberry Singh’s Autumn Challenge Meme by answering a few quick questions on the subject of “Fall”.  I hope everyone’s enjoying the start to October!

  1. Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? – Yes, most definitely without a doubt.  I grew up in Michigan and so Autumn was a bigger deal and lasted much longer than the Fall season I get in Virginia now.  I am just a cooler weather girl… I love my warm sweaters and jeans and sitting around a fire with some hot cocoa.  I would opt for this over hot, sweaty summer any day. 😛
  2. Do you call it Autumn or Fall? – I use them both really.
  3. What kind of weather does your area get during this season? – It’s mostly sunny and mild in the high 60s or low 70s.  Much warmer than I prefer for this season, but as long as I can wear a sweater I’m happy.
  4. Which color do you always associate with autumn? – Rusty Orange
  5. Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? – Mine? kidding! lol.. I haven’t really gotten a chance to see all of them out there.  But the newly renovated Floorplan sim where I took these pics is on the top of my list right now.  As well as Vespertine’s.  So many details put into these beautiful locations.

PSL_FINAL

The word Fall or Autumn usually conjures up all sorts of wonderful imagery of warm inviting colors and falling leaves blowing across a winding road in a cozy wooded valley; the smell of burning wood as fires are stoked and chimneys start smoking; wooley sweaters, comfy jeans, and boots to combat the new briskness in the air; the little chill on our noses that can be easily remedied by bring a nice warm cuppa something up to our lips.  Granted, my love of coffee goes beyond just one season, but this time of year is certainly special… in a word, PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE.  Ok so that’s three words.  Three very important words that always make me smile and my belly warm.  Anyone that knows me well, has probably figured out that I’m quite the pumpkin lover.  I tend to salivate over anything with pumpkin in it… breads, cookies, muffins, pies, pasta, soups, ice cream even.  And of course… COFFEEEEE!  So when {What Next} introduced this new Cocoa-on-the-Go Cart that actually dispensed my favorite autumnal drink?!?!.. you can imagine the squeeing that went on behind my closed office door.  I was one happy girl.

PSL-1_FINAL

I must also mention that in addition to great coffee, I am also excited to be slipping into my jeans and sweaters finally, and ColdLogic has just released some wonderful fall basics to mix-n-match.  I paired my skinny jeans with the adorable new booties from Fri.day with the optional sock tops.  Finally ones that I can wear with my mesh jeans!  This is only the first of a few outfits I will show off to you.

PSL-2_FINAL

Many thanks to Ms. Harlow Heslop‘s beautiful landscaping of “The Grounds” where I took this pic, home to the Pixel Bean Coffeehouse.  If you’ve never been, go check it out, as it’s truly one of my favorite places for hanging out, relaxing, and meeting new people.  There are periodic music events going on and always tons of fun.  It very much reminds me of the type of coffeehouses I used to frequent back in my college days and listen to some live bands such as the one I posted below.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a pumpkin muffin staring me down. Enjoy your Monday!

{ Spring Fever needs a Vacation }

Fever_FINAL

In many parts of the United States right now, it’s Spring Break.  The ‘unofficial’ peak vacation period of the year.  It’s funny every year as this time approaches wherever I go in RL, someone asks me “Doing anything for Spring Break?” I usually stare at them blankly for a moment, not understanding and thinking in my head “Am I supposed to be doing anything?”  Then reply with a very disappointing  “Nope. Just the usual.”  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever gone anywhere for Spring Break except that one time in highschool, and well… it wasn’t to wild and exciting times in Florida like most highschool and college kids going to frolic on the sandy beaches and get their drink on… instead I was in Georgia. >insert unsure face here<

So since going somewhere exotic and exciting for Spring Break is a little beyond my reality at this point, I’ll just treat my spring fever with a little SL vacation.  In my search for the nearest airport, I was actually quite surprised there are a large number of them in SL that you can fly around and many have hangars for your planes, jets, and helicopters.  My flight landed me in the Miami Airport.  I will not go into detail about how I was nearly run down by one pilot .. but I suppose I was loitering on the runway a bit. 😛 Hey! I had to show off all my pretty spring goodies, like this cute new ColdLogic dress in yummy melon.  Added my new espadrilles from Gos Boutique, and struck a pose or two.  You can pick up the poses at oOo Studio right now for FREE to VIP Group Members!  And now, if you’ll excuse me… I have a date with the beach!
