Christmas is almost here and I have spent the past few days wrapping presents and watching cheesy Christmas movies with my roommates. I recently also had the pleasure of meeting my dear friend Cyanna Starsmith in-world for the very first time and snapping this festive picture of us. Cyanna has her own blog called Shop ’til Drop. She is incredibly stylish and takes dazzling photo’s to showcase her daily looks. To keep up with her wonderful stylings and work, make sure you follow her blog as well as Flickr.

Les Encantades

Les Encantades recently released this festive outfit and it is absolutely adorable. It comes with a jacket, dress, collar and garters and is available in several different colours. You can find this sweet outfit at the Les Encantades mainstore.

On9

I have already done a video with my favorite fashion finds and now it’s time to show my favorite decor finds. I combined several pieces from the Holidays drink cart by Aphrodite Shop with the xclusives from ChiC buildings and DJ / SF. Remember to visit On9 before it closes on the 28th.

Happy holidays, everyone! ♥

“Lemme hear you say
Oh, oh
Can’t keep it bottled up
Make it pop like pink champagne
In the purple rain
We’re gonna paint the city
We’re gonna show off all our pretty
Pink champagne
Let ’em know our names.
Screamin’ so loud
They’ll hear us in LA”
– Ariana Grande, Pink Champagne

Admittedly, winter has never been my favorite season. This is mostly due to my cold allergy (literal cold allergy- I get rashes from the cold, yikes!) but this year I was, for once, looking forward to the frosty but cozy season. Most of my Second Life friends also fully decked the Flickr halls with winterry captures, naturally making me even more excited for the holiday season.

Tannenbaum opened her holiday market again for the year of 2016, bringing you a selection of high quality, wonderous winter goodies. 22769 ~ [bauwerk] released a lovely decor set for all your cozy “landhaus” needs. They also released a bunch of ornaments in a gacha set, with a silver and gold tree topper as a rare prize. I enlarged the topper and placed it next to my pre-decorated tree for you to see, which reminded me that there are always more ways to use decorations creatively in Second Life.

Sn@tch has also been on top of their winter game, releasing some incredibly fabulous outfits for all your holiday needs. This sweater dress with glittering stars is one of my favorite new releases so far. It’s absolutely adorable and incredibly cozy too. If you would like to keep up with the holiday releases for Sn@tch, I highly recommend you to follow Ivey via Flickr or her store blog. Sn@tch releases new items twice a week with occasional freebies to keep an eye out for as well.

Wishing you all a wonderful winter! ♥
