This week it has been snowing off and on where I live and today the temperatures plummeted. It makes me crave a warm and toasty environment. Wearing this outfit and setting up this cozy living room display made me feel very at home.

Today is the birthday of the United States. Happy 4th of July for those who celebrate! I tried to dress patriotic. What you can’t see in this photo is that I’m wearing blue pants and flag shoes. Chop Zuey has this awesome fascinator in honor of the holiday and there is also a bracelet and earrings Belle created for the men. Make sure to visit the store and check out all the pieces.

Wow, life has been a whirlwind lately and I’m gearing up for a crazy week through May 1st, as well. In between the rain drops, I’m here to show you release from Pixicat and Glamistry. This pose is actually a free group gift. I absolutely love it. Because I have long limbs I had to change the position a little, but generally I think it should work for regular-sized avatars.

There is a new designer on the block, none other than the noted blogger and photographer, Xantheanne Resident. This week she opened her store Sorbet, which has a dress and skirt available for sale. Everything sold in the store is and will be 100% original mesh and promises to offer unique creations. When you visit, you will also find the extremely cute dress featured in the photo which is the group gift. The group is currently free to join, but will only stay that way until February 1st.
To add to the adorable and dreamy look, I added the most recent jewelry set from Lyrical B!zarre Templates. This month you will find it at the Full Perm Fair. On first glance, it just looks like lovely hearts, but when you take a closer look at the details, you will see little gears encrusting the pendants.
Dress: Sorbet – Robe Plissee (group gift)
Jewelry: Lyrical B!zarre Templates – Steam Love Set at the Full Permission Fair
Hair: Tableau Vivant from the Editorial set (a past Arcade item)
For those who celebrate Christmas, the holiday season is not complete until you have worn a Christmas sweater covered in reindeer images and knit to perfection. One of my favorite times of the month is when Pixicat puts out her Fifty Linden Friday item. It is cute and high quality every time. I think that as consumers in Second Life, we don’t always have a lot of linden dollars lying around, so it’s nice to have the chance to buy a high quality item for a bargain price. Also, if you enjoy adorable props and poses, I recommend joining the Label Motion subscriber group. For the last 4 or 5 years I have been signed up and multiple times a year the designer sends out a fun present. There are definitely some annoying subscriber groups out there that spam customers every day, but then you find a few gems like Label Motion.
Sweater: Pixicat – Cozy Sweater in Christmas (available only today for Fifty Linden Friday)
Hair: Envogue – Patricia
Toy: Label Motion – Cuddly Snowman (free subscriber gift), comes with pose adjustment
A few hours left to get this gorgeous coat from Pixicat. It comes with tons of options, which is an incredible deal for this Fifty Linden Friday item. I wore the black option, but there is also a white version which comes with this collar. The shirt is also part of the coat, but it’s an optional layer. Not shown is a black hood that could be worn with either color option of the coat.
I would like to take a moment to write here what I shared on Facebook about terrorist attacks Friday evening in Paris: “My heart and thoughts go out to the people of Paris. It is an incredible place that should never be torn apart by such monstrosities. To those of you there – please stay safe. For those who are gone – may their memory be eternal.”

Sometimes we need a break from the heat to remember how nice it can feel during the cool winter. For some reason, the Silvy dress by GIULIADESIGN made me think of an ice princess. The good kind!
After a while of thinking about it, I have decided to make a slight change of direction to my blog. I will continue to blog the designers and events I love, but I will also be writing about fashion/modeling tips and tricks, as well as my opinions. Not every post will have it, especially if I am writing a great deal about specific events, sales or other opportunities. This additional information will always be placed below a cut in my blog post after style credits so that people can just read the pieces they like.
