Cheer Me Up Cheapie!

Yesterday was a longgg day for me, couldn’t sleep last night so I did what Zan and I always do when in need of a smile – whats that you ask? We take a wander around the Kiyomizu sim. I found a new place whilst I was there, couldn’t find a store name but I DID find a gacha machine with some jolly Santa Claus full avatars. Oh my days $30L a pop – so who can resist? Not meeee !

I was trying to get the rare traditional red Santa but after 4 goes gave up – I still pretty pleased with the four I won though. They all have different “moods” to the faces and once Id got them on – they made me smile – such fun for just $30L ! I just used my alpha hud and removed my feet and hands – et voila ready to go Santa-ring – have fun ❤

Christmas Wishes (freebies inc.)

coldLogic sweater NEW - Mina hair - wintertime bike by what next boots Storm Crow Designs colour HUD inc 100L !

It’s no secret that I just adore Christmas is it ? I couldn’t wait to get my mitts on the sim and make it over for winter ! My paws are dead tired now after humping stuff innnn and outtt of my inventory – but its done . So, I was thinking back to a few years ago, about a lovely thing that happened to me. Long story short I was sent a gift from “Santa” after writing him a letter at one of those Christmas places. I didn’t ask for anything they could actually give to be honest but they sent me something lovely – I was stoked and it made me smile. In the spirit of “giving back”, Id like to try to replicate those feelings in some of YOU , I know right? DEAD exciting ! Dreamworks is our home sim, you will land at the hot chocolate machine, grab a cup and follow the board walk to the snowy tunnel. This leads out onto the skating pond. At the far end Santa is waiting for you, complete with comfy lap to sit on. To the side is his mailbox, with easy to understand instructions on how he likes his mail delivered.

High length Boots Storm Crow Design 100L colour change HUD inc.

You can wish for anything in your note and Santa will try VERY hard to make it come true. Obviously he is a pretty busy boy around this time of year, he might only be able to do a few ! anyhooo onto the main feature of this blog NEW pretties. I helped myself to some fingerlickin gorgeous boots, they are by Storm Crow Design and are on offer for just 100L at the new round of Designer Circle. Bloomin lovely, choice of high (as above) or shorter length, you also get a HUD with quite a few colour options yay! These are for Slink high feet btw.

Freebies Frogstar (mostly 1 prim!)

My sweater is from the new range of wooly pullies at coldLogic, darn it I cant stop wearing them. This one is “wayne”, and comes with a contrasting scarf that I haven’t added on , because you know…long hair effect. (although, the scarf does come in various sizes) hair is an old fav from Mina which was set out on offer a few weeks ago, DUH bought it twice. It’s a real keeper though, especially for winter. The hat has a few pattern/colour combo’s in a hud, handy-dandy. All the décor you see above is from Frogstar and it was one of our blog readers who nudged me into action with a note to go get the gear. Brilliant stuff ! Pictures, mirror,bench that’s stuffed with SO many poses and the sweet thanksgiving table, some are dollarbies, some I was given as gifts for joining the subscribo – I’m confused as what is which – so take a peek . (Thanks Sparka <3)

The North Pole & Santa !

ohmy oh my ohmy…I get SO excited about Christmas ! Poor old Player always has to deal with my spiralling festive JOY ! It begins around mid November..and Im almost fit to pop by December 1st …Two years ago we spent a happy evening or three visiting all the Chrismassy places…I was in hog heaven…then we happened upon  the “North Pole & Santa’s Village”, ohmai! It’s just incredible…so much fun…so pretty…so so SO Chrismassy! You arrive at the top of a windblown snowy Mouintain…there is a handy pair of uggs style boots set out for free, so you can slip them on and keep your toes cozy…then you walk down the winding pathway to Santa’s village. The wind really does howl and the snow effects are sooper pretty…

There is a hunt to enjoy while you visit, and it’s not soooo easy to find the gifts, you’ve been warned ! You have to search around and find the places to touch..the gift box magically appears before you, you touch it to receive the prize…and theres some totally lovely gifts , I havent opened all mine yet !

I bought some of the animated reindeer from here a few years back…best Ive ever seen in Second Life…they move so naturally, I adore them. You will find some genuinely unusual and special items to buy, but really..its just not all about shopping…its the MAGIC of Christmas ! Take time to wander and marvel at the animated penguins & elves…explore each shop…theres a post office, a workshop, and of course the reindeer stable, and oooodles more to entertain & delight you. If you want to experience the Christmas times you almost forgot you had as a child..this is the place to go.
