What is your winter comfort food? A batch of chili or a pot of soup on the stove top is usually my go-to. I also tend to drink more coffee or tea in winter. What do food trucks do during the winter months? Do they brave the cold and hope others will too? I would stop if I saw this truck of goodies!
I hope you all have completed your Christmas shopping. I have done most of mine, but plan to be out ALL day tomorrow getting the rest of the gifts on my list. And it is a long list to complete.

I am still head over heels for the Truth Irenka hair. My makeup is Lilian from Glam Affair made for LeLutka. It has several eyeshadows and lipsticks to complete the look. My new face is Lelutka’s Simone bento head. Everyone on the grid is loving that they can create their own identities with bento heads.
Canimal is back to Second Life and has made this sexy outfit for N21. The top and skirt are separate pieces in case you want to wear them with something else. The heels are from Reign and have pom poms on the back part of the ankle. The pose is Glamrus for couples. I just really wanted to hold the sign so I am doing this pose solo.

Recently, the Arcade opened its doors once again. I don’t mind admitting that I am a fan of gachas. Tres Blah has always been a favorite of mine. Julliette Westerburg’s recent collection is called Pampered. The set contains robes, sweet treats, nail polish decor, and other cute things for a day of pampering. I collect nail polishes, and I even have a tiny little spot where you can go and (pretend) get a mani/pedi. You can visit the location here.
My hairstyle is new from Truth Hair. This is Velma and can be found at Vintage Fair. I think it is gorgeous and has the perfect sultry vintage jazz club feel. The nail polish applier is a group gift from Hello Dave! The group is free to join and has something to offer members every month.

It does not matter how cold it is outside when it comes to ice cream. It is a great treat even though ice cream is freezing itself. I can have ice cream anytime, and that makes my world a happier place. Don’t worry if you can’t get to the ice cream shop because of heavy snow outdoors. You can make your own snow ice cream. I found you a recipe by The Suburban Soapbox.
I recently purchased the weather system from Botanical. I love how it can produce rain or snow. It can stay out on the sim year round since it is seasonal. The system does not run on particles. Instead this is a big 1li mesh build with textures of snow flakes or rain drops. It can produce light to heavy rain/snow. I checked my sim script use and it is actually very low. The only problem I had is zooming in on things. Most of the time my camera would tend to get caught on the mesh. Overall, I do love the Botanical Seasonal Weather System. It helps add to the realism in our Second Life.
Today is Manicure Monday and I found a cute little store called Encore on the Marketplace. The set is called Designer 02 and is made of teals and browns. This nail applier is for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya, Omega enabled, and Slink mesh nails. I couldn’t find this particular set in the store, but it was listed as a newer release on Marketplace. I’m wearing it on my Slink hands in this picture.
Truth has a new mesh hairstyle out at Uber. The new Truth Austen hairstyle can be worn with a baseball hat or without. The hat takes a glamorous hairstyle and tones it down for casual everyday wear. There are 16 textures for the hat. You could easily wear it with the hat while running errands for the day, and then remove the hat and slip on a dress for an evening out.
Foxes gave their VIP group an amazing gift of 500L credit to spend in their store. I purchased the Dip Dress in mauve at Collabor88. This dress will be perfect for ringing in the new year. My necklace came with the dress and has a string of pearls that hangs down the open back of the dress. This dress is made for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya mesh bodies.
I am so excited that Apple Fall finally released the long awaited Gatekeeper gacha set. We have all waited on this since TAG Gacha back in October. The dollhouse is probably the most wanted item. I love each piece. The gatekeeper’s lodge can be used year round. The snow on the rooftop can be removed when winter is over.

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!
Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.
My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.
And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.

You won’t believe it but I am wearing a skirt panel with these skirt/leggings. I was skeptical at first because I remember the horrors of big blocky chunk prims in the past. With ambient occlusion turned off you cannot even see the mesh skirt panel as an add on at all. All of these shots are raw and unedited besides cropping and pasting the two together. Mesh moves with you and blends smoothly with the body. I even posted a close up of the skirt to show you. The Nathalie leggings/skirt are worn on my Maitreya Lara body using the Omega System hud. These can be worn as just a skirt, leggings, or both. And they are available for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and TMP. Pick them up at the Apply Me event. My comfy tank top is a new release from Maitreya at the main store. I chose to compliment this outfit with Ingenue Astrid heels in a matching color.
Lamb just sent out a notice that she will start doing monthly group gifts again. This month is the Dissolved Girl hair fat pack. The in world group has a small L$100 fee to join. Totally worth it. My skin is by Glam Affair from the last Fifty Linden Friday. The sitting poses are the latest pose pack from Kirin and can be found at Kustom 9. I used them in a relaxed casual setting. You can find Carolina Sauterau of Kirin looking super cute in her pictures.
