It’s time for spring cleaning and redecorating so I picked up a ton of prims and started setting some new ones down. Cory Edo has a new living room set a Fameshed that is perfect for redecorating, including sofa, chair, artwork, tables and lamp and several choices of blanket chest. The sofa and chair include color change for the upholstery and texture change for the optional pillows and quilt. The chest has the same texture change for the blanket. I spent a good hour clicking colors in and out, prepared to surprise Mr. Beresford when he got home, especially after I decorated with Cory’s artwork and wood wall art and Kunst Himmel’s rug and custom-colored Max Graf’s mesh curtains. I knew he would be so surprised!

I put on a pretty dress from Vitamingirl from Shiny Shabby that comes in several looks, all gorgeously ethnic with embroidery and a lovely cotton top detailed with buttons and lops. I also custom-colored my sandals from TeamRedgrave with their great HUD. Pretty jewelry from Plurabelle Laszlo added the finishing touch to my look.

Truth Hawks’ newest ‘do added a touch of casual elegance to my look, especially with Sawsan Secretspy’s latest skin for Designer Circle. She has recently introduced a V2 skin tone to her appliers, so make sure you apply the right one with these new skins. Soleil Reid’s eyes are heart-breakingly beautiful with this look.

Mr. Beresford was, indeed, thrilled with the redecorating (and my look), but he asked if he could add a piece or two of his own. He said he had found something at Fameshed that would fit in perfectly and add his own touch of manliness to the decorating. I had given him permissions over my things, and I had to run, so I left him in charge. I was relieved to see in my email he had only sent back one chair. I was looking forward to see what he had done when I logged in later. His IM in email said, “I finished my decorating. I think the color matches perfectly so you’ll be happy, honey.”

I was pretty excited to see what he had done when I was able to log in. Mr. Beresford indeed added a touch of manliness. Wavie Haller’s Comfy Chair, a recliner fit for a man cave, had taken place of my sent-back chair. Sigh.

Santa Baby—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

Santa Baby—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 3

Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me.
been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,
Light blue.
I’ll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you’ll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,
And really that’s not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

~ “Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt


Santa Baby

It’s probably time to spoil yourself a little for the holidays. You have been through Black Friday and Cyber Monday and even Afterthought Tuesday (and wearing those dangerously high heels while you shopped). One good way is to dress like you own the place and run to the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar and get today’s gift, this set of earrings from Maxi Gossamer that she makes available in both gold and silver.

My skin is one of the collection at NatalieWells’ shop that I picked up while I was doing the Skin Addiction Black Friday. I love this skin—the tone, the lips, the eyes, the brows, the body. Granted, you can barely see the eyes in this look because of the dramatic cut that Mirja Mills has just put out. But you see enough of the smoky, classy face to get the idea.

Santa Baby

I imagined a very well-to-do, well-dressed lady about town when I made this look and GraceHaddington’s newest sheath with jacket is what made the look. Grace does textures like no one else I have ever met. She combines and layers them on mesh pieces with amazing proportions and shadows and depths that create beautiful, high fashion looks. This skill is also noticeable in my stiletto pumps that Grace made. Add to that that each of these outfits comes with a texture-change HUD and the pumps have nine various textures, not just an in-world color change. And everything is priced ridiculously low for what you get as far as artistry and versatility. Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight, and bring me more of these gorgeous fashions!
