LOTD #279 – Winter Wonder

LOTD 279

Wandering alone, she found a wonder.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My blogging has been somewhat irregular of late – RL and SL are both keeping me busy.

I’m still plugging along in my Visionaire course, though there are days where I just want to bang my head against the desk.

I’ve been meeting some great new people, though, and finding new things.  One of the students in my class is launching a new SL store, and she graciously shared one of her first creations with us.

The gorgeous book tree you see in the pic is her creation and it will be available at the next round of The Liaison Collaborative when it opens on December 7th. She will have other complementary pieces as well, so make sure you check it out.

As a bibliophile, this is possibly my most favorite SL Christmas tree ever. 😛

Winter White – LOTD #243

LOTD 243
She stopped suddenly.

What was the noise she had heard?

The door creaked open.

More photos and Advent goodies to share. 😀

This fabulous dress and cardigan are gifts from the Purple Moon Advent calendar.  I love the soft, feminine look of both pieces.  The dress is sleeveless, so I paired it with the cardigan for a more wintery look.

The jewelry is an Advent gift from Chop Zuey.  The Violet Flame of Purity set comes with earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet.  It also includes a color change HUD, so you can make the set match any outfit.

It’s Christmas, so I hope you are having a good time with family and friends.  I’ll be spending a few days relaxing, then it’s time to get ready for all the New Year’s Eve festivities. 😀

Merry Christmas!

After taking a few photos with my system avatar, I am back in my mesh body and head and loving it!

No more spending time getting rid of jagged edges – I can spend that time adding filters and effects and all that fun stuff. 😛

I like the new expressions in the Lelutka heads, included in the last update.  It’s not quite the variety I have with my LOGO head, but I love the way they look.

I was shopping at Kustom9 when I saw this dress by Tetra, and my jaw hit the floor.

It’s so elegant and classy – I love the lace overlay and the cutout hem.

I wanted some hair that had a bit of messy look, and this fantastic hair from Wasabi Pills was just thing (another fabulous FLF find).

I started searching through my inventory for accessories, and found the earrings from It! and the clutch from Zenith, both items I’ve had for a while.

However, my search also led me to this fabulous ring from Eudora, which is their prize in the Enchantment hunt.

If you haven’t been to Enchantment yet, run, don’t walk – there are some fabulous items.  They are also having a hunt – you need to grab the HUD so you can tp to the participating stores.

It’s a pretty easy hunt and there are some fabulous prizes – like this gorgeous ring, which you get in both gold and silver versions.

Today has been a crazy day.

I’ve had so many interruptions and distractions while trying to get this post done, it’s not even funny.

Even though it’s been crazy, it’s been good.

I got to help out someone who needed it, I had a couple of new opportunities cross my path, and I’m still having fun. 😀

I’m a big fan of the Cart Sale by Fab Free, and I love that I’m able to find quality items for low prices.

This is another skin from Lumae – I’m in love with how easy it is to change skins.

They are so well done that I don’t even have to fuss with the neck seam in my photos!

The cute vintage dress is another find from the Cart Sale.

I love all the little details – the appliqué on the front, the lace on the sleeves, and the adorable bow at the waist.

The outfit was screaming for some vintage hair, and this cute pixie cut from Argrace was just the ticket.

Add some pearls from League, some adorable bow heels from Reign, and I’m ready for a night out on the town!

It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing these LOTD posts for 200 days now.

I’ve missed a few days here and there, but I’m proud of myself for doing it.

I’ve learned so much – both about blogging and photography.

Now, I’m off to finish my crazy day, and all the things still left on my to-do list!
