Strolling--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 18

I took a stroll around Crestwick Island during a nice afternoon. This outfit from Hilly Haalan, made of pieces from her latest collection, show mesh used to its fashionable with a texture-change jacket belted over some terrific slacks. She includes the handbag with the outfit and several other pieces, so it’s quite a great buy. I paired it with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s shoes for Christmas on 34th Street, which keep showing up on my feet because they are sexy and fashionable (and giftable—hint hint, guys). Mea Carnell is selling this great statement jewelry set at Cosmopolitan Room with several variations on the necklace and bracelet for versatility.

My favorite jewelry today, however, are my earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, today’s gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Ava actually offers this pair and another in gold (somewhat different) so you are getting two gifts from a very talented jewelry designer.

Inka Mexicola has come out with this beautful applier for LeLutka mesh heads, and I chose to wear it on the Karin head. I love the shading under the eyes and the luscious lips. I will say I tried the expressions on the head with this skin and they were not doing it for me. The perfect pout is the way to go. Tabata Jewell is offering this sleek full low bun at Hairology. I love the wisps of hair framing the face and the fullness of the style. She is the goddess who organizes most of it so give her some respect when you’re enjoying Hairology.

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
~ Mary Oliver

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

I wanted to find a beautiful fantasy area for a sort of sexy snow queen and her pet and the Winter Sim at Kalamata fit the bill perfectly. My snow queen is a sort of sexpot too, so lingerie from Mariska Simons for Christmas on 34th Street made complete sense. A combination of a mesh corset and appliers makes the outfit beautiful and elegant, and it’s giftable so you can give it to a loved one or friend for the holiday. It also comes with a complement of jewelry, including the lovely crown I am wearing.

I did not wear the other jewelry because I received this beautiful gift from Belle Roussel for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, a set that includes a necklace, bracelet and earrings. The set also includes a texture change HUD so switch up various parts of the jewelry to match your outfit. I chose the ruby and pink because I wanted it to stand out on in this look. I really like it because it’s a very versatile and simply elegant set that could go with many looks. And I love how the bracelet hangs around the wrist with the heart-shaped charms dangling. It’s a fine set of prettiness for your holiday.

Today is the last day of this round of Shiny Shabby and Marcopol Oh has this beautiful applier on sale at the event so run over there now to get it. It comes with several eye makeups and lipsticks in his singularly elegant style. My hair is Kavar Cleanslate’s gorgeous new ‘do for Collabor88, a face-framing style with a great low profile so one can wear hats or crowns.

I’d Like You for Christmas--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 12

Some of my most romantic moments have occurred during the holidays. Maybe more are to come. That’s why it’s great that Erratic Rain came out with this absolutely drop-dead set of lingerie just in time for the holidays. With bra, panties, corset, stockings, and thong, it allows for lots of mix and match looks without the over-the-top showgirl look of a lot of lingerie. And it fits perfectly to the Maitreya body. I accessorized with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s fabulous pumps and the gorgeous earrings that Mirja Mills is giving as today’s gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Lots of people know Mirja for her hair, but she also does other mesh creations, especially intricate jewelry, so it’s a privilege to receive these earrings as a gift.

Umazuma Metaluna has come out with a set of sexy appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads for Collabor88, so I opted for the luscious toffee tone and enjoyed finding a most kissable expression on the head with the new Expressions feature. Thora Charron has created a line of animated hairs under the “Swish” sublabel and a lock of my hair in front moved slightly in a breeze. Astralia is offering this mistletoe hair piece at Christmas on 34th Street, a giftable set that you might give to a friend as a hint or wear yourself to gin up some romance for your holiday. Mr. Beresford was much inclined when he saw it on me.

I took my photos at Elysion, which is a picture perfect sim because Syn Beresford (distantly related cousin, yes—talent clearly runs in the family) has created an adult atmosphere that includes beautiful dreamlike spaces and rollicking parties on the weekends. I am including a photo of the touching display Syn has built for the victims in Paris, a reminder to all of us that SL is entwined with RL, and we are all part of a bigger global community.

“…freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin – inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night…” ~ John Geddes

Bringing Home the Tree--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 11

Loch Noble just reopened their sim and a fresh coat of snow has fallen with more coming down. It’s coated the whole beautiful village with a white blanket and made it perfectly charming and wintery. I took a late morning run over to check out the storefronts and get my tree. (OK, it’s the sim “tree on a car” but work with me here…) I felt very seasonal in Aryiana Novelli’s supposedly ugly sweater for Christmas on 34th Street, though I think it’s absolutely charming with the clever use of multiple translucent layers to make it look soft. Chantal Mynx’s cowl for FROST provides colorful warmth, as do Izzie Button’s tights for TLC. And they matched my boots from Hera Aviatik, which are also for FROST. Pretty earrings from AvaGardner Kungler for this month’s On9 (which I downsized quite a bit) and a berry cluster from Abraxxa Anatine make the whole look seasonal and pretty.

Thank goodness for Mavi Beck’s darling holiday poses for TLC because they worked great for this set of photos. I am wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s new skin for Winter Trend on the Catwa Jessica head and I added shadows from Alaska Metropolitan that she is offering at a rock bottom price at Anybody. I have fallen in love with Constance Daehlie’s eyes for Winter Trend (which you will see over and over for the next few weeks). She offers system and mesh eyes. And the final and most glorious part of my look is Queue Marlowe’s gift for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar for today—an amazing topknot that includes three different HUDs for your wearing pleasure.

Stopping by Woods–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

~ “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost

Stopping by Woods--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 10

I went over to the lovely Garden of Whimsy and was reminded of Robert Frost’s poem about the deep dark woods. They have set up the sim so nicely without too much kitschy stuff and enough wonder that I enjoyed myself. I am wearing xxsaltandpepperxx’s cute chevron-patterned dress, a giftable look available at Christmas on 34th Street. I matched mokkinha’s ankle boots to the look. You can see a subtle chevron pattern in the boots.

Today’s featured gift is Aleida Rhode’s custom mesh earrings, which she is offering as the gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar in three colors—silver, copper and onyx. With a decorative hanger, they are almost like ornaments but more delicate. My skin is one of Silent Alchemi’s lovely looks. I needed to take off a mesh head for a day and get some air, and with this glowing skin, I feel beautiful. I added lipstick from Synjari Myriam, also giftable at the Christmas on 34th Street. She offers each package with evening and daytime tones, which is clever. My short sassy hair is one of Leyla Flux’s great looks for Hairology, which opened today!
