Feelin’ the spirit of the season so much this year..

{ Elfed }

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.

{ Fine Ass Mess }

Let me tell yo something bout you girl
You can’t be sexy with an attitude
You wanna know why? Do you wanna know why?
Hear me out, shut up and listen for a minute
It’s time to clean all these closets out, starting with you
Sweet as a rose, but yet still covered in thorns
It’s hurting your image
Everyday you chose to live for the moment
It sure got you dirty
Girl, you a fine-ass mess
I hate that it’s true
Baby, it’s time to get the mud off your dress
Way too much been swept up under your rug

{ 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!

The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.
