{ Cozy Christmas }

 

Twas the night before Christmas….

… that all through the house

this blogger was too busy, there was no time to slouch.

 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

but not on her platform, no she wouldn’t be found there.

 

For real life was calling; there was much still to do

and Second Life would have to wait…no blogging pictures yet – boo!!

 

But now that the gifts have been given, the presents are unwrapped

the foods all been eaten and that means I can finally RELAX

 

So off to my computer I flew like a flash

logged in and got snapping and prayed not to crash.

 

I sprang from my seat, and to myself gave a ‘wewt wewt’

The task was complete and the result was pretty cute!

 

Although it’s a day late, the sentiment is still valid alright..

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

candyland_final

The latest round of Enchantment was deliciously themed around the fairytale of “Hansel and Gretel”.  For me it was also reminiscent of playing Candyland as a child.  How can any kid (or adult for that matter) resist the fantasy of a world so sugary sweet, where lollipops bloom like flowers, candied apples grow from trees and donuts glazed in chocolate adorn the land?  Sadly my blogpost didn’t make it up here in time before Enchantment closed it’s doors for this round, however you’ll find all the items listed below with their corresponding stores should you find yourself hungry for a little shopping treat!

{ 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!

I promise you won’t have to wonder thru any Jurrasic parks to get your hands on this new outfit from Addams.  It’s available now at Collabor88 and will be thru the month of September.  With a texture changing HUD you can adjust and mix and match your top, pants, belt, bra with a variety of colors and fun camo patterns. Perfect for a little safari / military / dinosaur hunting roleplay or maybe just for loungin cause it’s super cute and casual!

Also a quick note on the LAQ Trinity Mesh Head (that I love for obvious reasons).. it’s been updated with some really great new features and more expressions options!  So be sure to keep an eye out for a new post with details about that soon!

I was also informed that I was running unnecessarily from a Veggiesaurus but one can never be too careful I say.  It’s possible I smelled like asparagus.
