Heres the aerial view, its an enormous set that will really complete your winter landscape. I love that it isn’t hard linked – meaning you can have as much or as little as you like on display. Its really a photographers dream set, so many spots to take photos and the bench is stuffed with lovely poses for single pringles and couples. You also get an “extras” pack with more of the same to splash about – brilliant!

One of my fav things in winter are the chestnut sellers we get popping up in town – I adore those tasty treats, and here they are in the skating rink! Sweet details all around this set, so keep an eye out to spot them.

Couple of items I plucked out of my inventory to share today, both on sale at The Christmas Expo. Above is the “Noel” slinky dinky sweater dress from Sage. Absolutely love this ! I’m wearing the cream & pink version, so the pattern of the snowflake is pretty subtle – other colours available which have more of a contrast. Dont forget 50% of each of these dress sales got To the Race For Life fund ! Newwww hair-do from Argrace which is dead cute called Koyomi. Tights are from Sweet Tea, these are my winter essentials. $100L a pack with several colours in each, traditional leg and applier versions included – brilliant!

The Dark Fae's Holiday gown 100 donation

You all know I’m not a gown kinda gal, but when I saw this from The Dark Fae – I felt all Chrismassy! Superb mesh dress, with a button up back detail and several colour options to choose from. I’m wearing it over my Slink mesh body, great fit too.

Cry me a river

Arcana vintage radiomusic box NEW! Arcana pouffe NEW! [DDD] 1 Li sets of multi texture candles @ The Christmas Expo NEW!

definitely a day to reflect and be quiet, and I found a perfect way to do just this. Arcana has a beautifully made Antique vintage radio out on sale. I love music boxes and have always collected them in SecondLife. This looks just like one. Old wooden box with a crank turn handle. It’s just so pretty. It doesn’t just look good, it’s actually a radio also. Its made in mesh so the prims are kept temptingly low ! Another new item is the crate Im sat upon. Sooo many poses in it its more like a photography prop ! It also has a menu so you can choose from many different designs for the  logo and differing colours for the cushion. If you go buy one of these by midnight Saturday – you will pay just 24L .

My candles are something I treated myself too at The Christmas Expo yesterday. They are by Dysfunctional Designs and are just amazing ! You get three versions, I used them all together to create this shape – but it’s up to you how you arrange them. Colour change, you can also set the opacity of the flame and each section is just 1Li !

I met Father Christmas

Christmas Expo Citrus NEW!! Follow Us NEW!_005

I was wandering around The Christmas Expo (yes again) buying up yet more sparkly things, when I bumped right into a Jolly Gentleman all dressed in red. He had a sleigh full of gifts and made me feel extra cheerful. So I decided to stand close by and take a snap of the new dress by Citrus that’s on sale at the Expo. It’s a classic sweater dress in a  delicious berry shade. Super belt that’s tied loosely around your waist really sets it off. It seems this is only available at the Expo for now so head over and snaffle one up. I did notice at the main store there is a huge Xmas tree with lucky gifts around it – only set for a 5 minute turnover – and guys, there are some for you also !

The Christmas Expo 2013

Christmas Expo Kaerri Elvis the Christmas deer (rideable) House of Avro rideable Rudolph NEW!

Oh…My…Lord. Can I BE any more excited about Christmas?! YES I can ! I was invited to take a mooch around this years Christmas Expo & Breedable Fair. Frankly, I was like a child in a candy shop. Strolling about, mouth open, dribbling over all the goodies and snow and decorations and animals and pets and and and and more! I paid two visits and don’t think I even saw a quarter of the four sims that are being all set up for the grand opening tomorrow. Make sure you’ve got a coupla hours to spare, cause you really really don’t want to miss a thing. SO many stores I have never been too, SO many pretties, head spin time ! For me this is the first Christmas I’ve been able to fully appreciate what creators are doing with mesh. The saving in prims is astonishing and the realism incredible. Above is the free mesh outfit from Botanica, which is right up my street in PINK . You get the boots, the outfit, plus a jaunty santa hat. I’m sitting astride the rideable Rudolph from House of Avro. Heaps of fun cause he drives like a proper vehicle, speed controls,and dust from his hooves, brilliant ! My companion on the left is “Elvis the reindeer” , he is made by Kaerri, purely for decoration but I just adored him.

Christmas Expo House of Avro mesh tree 8Li - [DDD] Wreath 1Li - Kismet Precious gifts wooden boxes NEW!

In support of Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society, the 3rd annual Expo will open on Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at 10am slt and will end at 10am slt on Sunday, December 15th! There are donation boxes scattered about if you have a few spare pennies, plus each store, and participant on the breedable sims has a “naughty or nice” box. Touch it and if you’ve been a good person you get a gift! If you’ve been naughty, you get a lump of coal . (I like coal – so there) Above is the prettiest tree I ever did see. It’s just 8 prims and just looks SO real. Stood on a wooden base, with its lights twinkling away and a smattering of gifts, its perfect. On the wall is an item I HAD to buy, it’s from Dysfunctional Designs. The wreath is just 1 Li, the wonderous thing is you can choose heaps of different colour schemes for the baubles, the wreath and the fabric ! I was also rather taken by the precious gift boxes by Kismet. Totally different from anything Id usually go for at Christmas (I’m a glittery sparkly kinda gal) but they really stood out for me. Original, more subtle and so well made. If you’re into a more traditional look, check Kismet out, totally lovely.

Christmas Expo Myrrine decor items NEW!

Another new store for me is Myrrine. I stood and just gawked at all the decorations. Shabby chic yet also sooper stylish. I’ve scattered a few bits n bobs around in my SL home and its brought a real warmth to my space that was lacking before. Natural woods, and simple colour palettes.

Christmas Expo NEW!

These boards kinda lean against a wall, artfully casual huh? Like you almost thought about nailing them up, but never got around too it ! Love it. I really fell in lust with the wall decor panel above, whats not to like, its got PINK in it.

Dont think of this as shopping only, its got a LOT more to offer. There are photo ops, a raffle & auction,a hunt and of course Live music and a chance to have a wriggle with your mates.
