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.

{ 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!

{ R U Mine? } Shiny Shabby NEWNESS!

I guess what I’m trying to say is I need the deep end
Keep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimes
Unfair we’re not somewhere misbehaving for days
Great escape lost track of time and space
She’s a silver lining climbing on my desire

And I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?

Are you mine?
Are you mine?
Are you mine?UrbanGrey_FINAL

And the thrill of the chase moves in mysterious ways
So in case I’m mistaken
I just wanna hear you say you got me baby
Are you mine?

She’s a silver lining lone ranger riding through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me
And I go crazy cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?
Well are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
(Or just mine tonight?)

UrbanGrey-close_FINAL

Shiny Shabby just opened for it’s October round this past week with a modern approach to fall with focus on the color grey and neutrals rather than the typical warm tones we associate with the season.  Designers have captured this typically cool tone in their creations and invoked into it a sense of comfort and coziness.  Definitely go check it out… so many great offerings, this is just a peek at a few things out there.  The event runs until November 15th.

{ Afternoon Tea } NEW from Shiny Shabby!

Shiny Shabby is open for another round of shopping goodness and this month’s theme is “From Russia with Love” featuring so many amazingly talented artists and their Russian inspired wares. Beautiful ethnic fashions, rich textures and patterns, and intricately ornate home furnishings for decorating inside and out. Several creators have touched on the the lavishness of vintage Russian style offering varying Samovar tea sets.Teatime_FINAL

In addition I was very excited to see a few new applier offerings for mesh heads.  I am loving this new Slink Visage applier from [TheSkinnery] called “Alyona”. With or without freckles in 3 different brow options.  Beautifully blushed cheeks make me feel like a doll.  The Absinthe Dress, from GizzA, is available in 5 different floral patterns and each comes with a coordinating floral necklace to match.Teatime-Closeup_FINAL

Shiny Shabby is open until May 14th, so you have plenty of time to get over there and check it out!

Happy Shopping! ❤

Tender is the night
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is the day
The demons go away
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on, come on, come on, get through it
Come on, come on, come on, love’s the greatest thing
Come on, come on, come on, get through it
Come on, come on, come on, love’s the greatest thing
That we have
I’m waiting for that feeling
I’m waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come
