Bring it on, Snow. I have Ice Cream

Bring it on

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.

O Tannenbaum, O Christmas Tree

Decorating the Tree

O Tannenbaum is an old German Christmas song. Here in the United States we know it as O Christmas Tree. Right here is SecondLife we know Tannenbaum as the holiday market filled with winter clothes and decor. Inside the tree lot are gacha machines filled with decorative ornaments.

The ornaments are so beautifully well done. Each gacha is only L$25 per play. !Ohmai has the cutest babies laying on snow inside of her ornaments. You can hold the little baby inside, but you will have to take the ornament apart. I love kitty cats, and so I had to play the Schadenfreude gacha. Each ornament is texture change with 6 options. Each play with Anc ltd. grants you 3 items in one pull. The ornament for the tree, one to pose inside of, and an animated twig chair. I also picked up a few adorable decorations from MishMish. These ornaments with kitties, puppies, and bunnies are cuteness overload. Silentsparrow has 12 perfect felt bird ornaments to trim your tree.

Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

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.

Toscana Afternoon

Anytime is a good time for tea and dessert. I am loving the 8f8 Toscana set from The Arcade. Erratic’s An English Afternoon tea set goes perfectly with it. I added little touches from dust bunny, anc, BoOgErS, and Zaara that compliment the sets. Put on your white gloves and join me for a spot of tea.

The Fountain and the Tree

Fountain and the Tree

Pups and I decided that today was a great day for shopping. We stopped by Kustom 9 to pick up something warm. As I stood near the fountain outside of K9, I realized that I looked like the fountain with my !bang pose and the tree in the background with my blonde hair. Pups was a bit chilly without her little coat on. So we headed back to our new home, which we cannot wait to show you soon! We’re still decorating. But you are always welcome to come by for a visit.
