Exile has created the cutest little dress that is perfect for being a holiday elf or Mrs. Claus herself. There’s also a hair designed to fit perfectly under its fuzzy hood! The dress is called Santa Baby and comes in 3 color packs. The hair is called Weekender and comes in all of Exile’s usual colors. You’ll find both in the Mainstore. I thought the look was perfect for helping to sell trees on the tree farm by hive I picked up from Tannenbaum. My gorgeous tree is from Half-Deer and you can find it at Collabor88. There are so many colors and styles (I am using the Traditional here), and if you love Christmas as much as I do, I highly recommend the fatpack for L$788. It’s a great deal. My adorable shoes are Ingenue for The Arcade. I also want to point out my reindeer, as he’s from a new store called Mad Match. Right now they only have a Marketplace store, but there are some really cute things and it’s definitely worth checking out.
I am wearing one of LAQ’s recent bento head releases, Scarlet. I love this head. It’s sweet and doll-like. I’m wearing it with the Lola Glam Affair skin applier designed for it that you can find at Kustom 9.
While I’m talking about LAQ, I want to mention that the newest head Neve is on sale for just L$500 through Christmas Eve! So if you need to give a last minute gift or need a new head for yourself or an alt, this is a great opportunity to grab a gorgeous head for an unreal price. I intend to blog that one in the next week or two but I really wanted to make sure to mention it before the sale ended!
To all of you celebrating, I wish you a very Merry Christmas, full of love, goodies and lots of happy memories!

Though I’ve already changed my homestead over to spring, the truth is spring in Colorado, especially at 9,000 feet in the Rockies, often arrives late. However, this year it’s been unseasonably warm for weeks and just in the past few days have we returned to more normal February temperatures (for which I am grateful, as warmer and dry are not good for wildfire season).
If you’re not quite ready to let go of winter yourself this gorgeous coat from Neve might be just what you need to keep warm! I thought this coat would be a great match for the new pencil skirts release by Just Because at the Mainstore. These skirts have plain and lace options. You can also do lace on just the outer panels of the skirt. It was overly complicated with the plaid coat, but it’s truly lovely so do check these out! My adorable shoes are from fri.day and you can get them at Kustom9 through March 10th. I love the bows and the straps. I’m a sucker for any sort of Mary Jane type shoe, although these are called Elsie Janes!
Now, I had heard a rumor… maybe you’ve heard it, too. But the rumor was that Mallory Cowen of LAQ would soon be releasing a Bento mesh head. I decided to ask Mallory and she has confirmed that this is true! I’m super excited about this because I truly loved both of the heads she released before Bento hit the grid. I don’t know when the new head is being released, but I am confident it will be stunning!
I’m wearing Maxine with the Sophia applier in these pics. If you’re not waiting for Bento and want a new head, I definitely recommend trying one of LAQ’s. They’re both lovely. I am wearing the new Tokyo eyes released at Izzie’s. These come with system eyes, mesh eyes and Catwa appliers. I went for a bit of heterochromia and paired one Amber eye with one Teal! I am really fussy about the eyes I wear in SL, but I love these so much. They’re different for me, but in a good way for sure! Incidentally, I also shot both of these pics on the Izzie’s sim. It’s still winter, but not sure how much longer that will be the case. The Fiore necklace by Cae is at Whimsical through March 3rd. There are also matching earrings (not shown here) and you can buy the set or the individual pieces.

Summer is so close now! At least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. And summer – to me – means vacations, road trips, ice cream, beaches (even though it’s been years since I’ve gone to one!). It also means I can wear my flip flops, which I love. Because, you see, in RL I hate shoes. HATE them. Socks, too. But I love how they look… just not how they feel. So I’m happy to indulge my would-be shoe obsession in SL instead. When I put together this outfit, I knew it needed some strappy sandals, and I found the perfect pair at Glamistry… along with some fun, flirty, vintage feeling sunglasses! My top was released in the Mainstore of Just Because and the skirt is from the latest set of releases by Neve.
I love when shoe fatpacks are hud based, so that you can change the colors of individual parts. That’s the case with these Columbine sandals from Glamistry. Also, how could I NOT own these, when columbines are the state flower of Colorado, the beautiful state I get to call home.
I titled the above picture C’mon get strappy, which is a play on C’mon get happy… and a horrible pun that I did in honor of my brother Benton (I owed him one). But how fabulous is it that with the fatpack I could make the shoes multiple colors to match my skirt and top?
The hair I wore in the full body pic is from Exile, and it’s a brand new release for Summerfest, which has just opened. I spent a small fortune at Summerfest, so I’m sure to have more blog posts featuring items from it before long. But definitely check it out… it’s an event I always look forward to each year.

This look was built around a pair of high heels that I just completely fell head over… well, you can see where that bad pun would lead, so I’ll spare you (which I am sure will break my brother Benton’s heart). They’re the Crocus heels from Glamistry, and what got me was the shine and then the side detail of three princess cut diamonds (hey, it’s SL – I can have diamonds instead of rhinestones or CZ). But here’s a close up of the shoes, so you can see for yourself.
Aren’t they awesome? Okay, so once I had them on I decided on a recent release from Neve called Jazzy. I went with the tropics version. My hair is Mango, brand new from Tableau Vivant and available at Kustom 9.
I decided to do a bit of heterochromia with this look. It’s not something I do on a regular basis, and to be perfectly honest, I didn’t plan it. I was trying to decide what color eyes I wanted, and had one brown and one green on and it just worked for me. I’m also wearing Cae’s Flutter ring, which is a free gift available at FaMESHed. Her regular release for the event is a gorgeous matching necklace. It’s their anniversary round and a lot of designers have gifts out. You have to join the FaMESHed group, but it’s free and definitely worth it! I’m also wearing the brand new FATElashes from Damien Fate. These have already been updated to include even more textures. Strawberry Singh did an amazing post, complete with a video, about these lashes. Definitely check them – and Berry’s useful post – out. I have a hard time adjusting lashes, but I was able to adjust them to work with LeLutka’s Stella head with minimal hassle.
Oh, and all of these pics were shot at It all starts with a smile, the beautiful sim from the lovely Kaelyn Alecto. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

When I saw N-Core’s release for Kustom 9, I knew I was in trouble. I love roller and ice skates and leg warmers. Then I realized you can turn off the blades or wheels and wear them as a boot, and I was doomed. I had to have the fatpack. It’s really an amazing deal. It’s just L$1999 for all fourteen color versions, and the hud lets you custom so much. Plus, you get skating animations and a basic skating AO, too! But I already had this outfit worked out, using Neve’s new mainstore release for The Mix, and I thought roller skates would be the perfect compliment! My thigh high socks are fri.day’s cozy socks for Collabor88!
I am also wearing new Tableau Vivant hair from Kustom 9, as well as Lara Hurley’s recently released appliers for the LOGO Alex mesh head. And my adorable butterfly ring is from Cae’s Charmed 2 series, which is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan.
And of course, I took these pics at Blithe. If you haven’t been yet, you should! Blithe consists of two sims that are group only access, but the L$250 to join is well worth the cost, and helps keep Blithe alive for us all to enjoy. Rumor has it that Blithe will close for a few days in the next ten days or so to undergo a seasonal change, so don’t miss the opportunity to take gorgeous autumn pics there before winter arrives!
