elfed-treetrimming_final

I’ve been a busy little elf working on getting our home and sim changed over for Winter/Christmas which is pretty amazing considering how most seasons I’m 1000% behind on. Gonna make Santa proud this year (even if I am still on the naughty list). But I’m enjoying it so much.. finally having a “home” in SL and not just a place to take pretty pictures. I was given a stern talking to about not accurately depicting how this all went down, and it’s true.  I had help from my love, Mr. Roxan and my lovely, sweetness, Cecilia, in getting all the beautiful ornaments up on the tree.  Unfortunately we were too busy chatting for me to capture that in a photo. Plus there was a blinging Freenis on the top of the tree then.  I spared you all from the horror of that. 😛 You’re welcome.

{ but first… COFFEE }

sadnovember-warmers_final

I may not love mornings, but I do love coffee.  And without it, I wouldn’t make it thru the day.  It’s not just about caffeine (although that doesn’t hurt) but there’s something very comforting about sitting there as the day begins with a warm cup in my hand.  Sipping the steamy goodness brings me back to life.  Ain’t never gonna give you up, you tall dark delicious mug of mocha ❤

Sad November is back again and designers are showering us with all kinds of fall-to-winter moody creations.  oOo Studio has made a set of cozy singles poses called “Warmer” along with a texture changing coffee mug prop for you to brave the brisk mornings this month.  Available at the event until November 26th!

Featuring so many beautiful items I’ve collected from previous events the past few months particularly from Death Row Designs and Fancy Decor but also inspired by Birdy and Scarlet Creative‘s additions from the current round of The Arcade… I give you the music parlour!

What I’m wearing can all be found at this month’s The Liaison Collaborative. Luxuria brings out my inner starlet in her gorgeous lingerie this month, perfect with Earthstones indulgent jewelry and kitten heels by Baiastice!

Enjoy the grandness of Second Life where you can live in the lap of luxury for a fraction of the price 😉 !

You know that feeling ladies.. come onnnn… when you open up your inventory and with over 100k of stuff you still don’t know what to wear??  And your guy is tappin his foot waiting and wondering why the hell it takes you so long to put something on to go out.  He just doesn’t understand what a painstaking process it is to look this damn good. 😉

ShoeDecisions-close_FINAL

At the end of the night he’s usually pretty appreciative of the effort though. Otherwise you can chuck a stiletto at him… you have my permission. 😛

{ Red Velvet Vixen } NEW Poses from oOo Studio!

“Take your pleasure seriously…”

You know what they say about redheads…  *smirks* okay, normally I prefer the blonder hues (because blondes have more fun, right?), but occasionally it’s fun to channel my inner vixen with some red velvet tresses.  Like a rich decadent cake, that just begs you to have a bite… or several.

Speaking of velvet, oOo Studio has a new set of sultry and seductive poses out for Fifty Linden Fridays called “Velvet” and yes that means you can get an entire set of poses for only $50L.  But that’s today only so you better get a move on if you want them. And I knowwww you want them.

Also.. I have to mention this furniture set I picked up from Abiss.  It’s a gorgeous new collection called Alto and the textures on it are amazing.  That’s truly what sold me when I saw how detailed they were.  Especially the *ahem* sexy black velvet. There are a total of 20 different texture change options and over 200 animations (both PG and Adult).  The set comes with 2 armchairs, 1 sofa, and an accent table.  You can purchase it in store, however, if you’re not wanting to spend the big bucks on the copy versions, you can get the transfer / no copy set on Marketplace right now ON SALE 30% OFF!

Have a luscious weekend!

GetShitDone_FINAL

Bare with me.. I was just feeling a bit sassy and decided to have a little fun (if ya know what I mean).  Consider this my tongue-in-cheek, punny attempt at sexy humor.  And I’ll be the first to admit that this is a very real problem.  Needing to get shit done but such distraction abounds.  Namely, tumblr.  Although perhaps getting certain things out of the way first makes for a more productive self. Yeah!  That’s it.  Let’s go with that. 🙂

Anywayyyy… Many thanks to the creators of Shiny Shabby for letting me take their very PG-13 items and ratchet them up a notch to some lude innuendo.  Twas fun!

Shiny Shabby is still open for a few more days… Get the goods by April 15th.

Mirror_FINAL

November 12th starts another round of GEN-Neutral, an event focused on the blurred lines of gender identity, offering everything from fashion to poses to decor items.  I’m giving you a sneak peek at a new pose prop called “Perception” from oOo Studio that will be available next week.  Sometimes what you see in the mirror looking back at you is more than just what is on the outside.  The wall mirror prop comes with 5 poses (with tall options) and their mirrored reflective poses on the other side.  I hope you enjoy playing with this as much as I did!

{ Fade into You }

I wanna hold the hand inside you
I wanna take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

You live your life, you go in shadow
You’ll come upon and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Close your eyes with what’s not there

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

The strange light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart is out of home
You put your hands into your head
And your smiles cover your heart
