My sweater is from Tiffany’s, its called “Corina” and is a super big and baggy style thats perfect for the season. Leggings are from Neve, previously blogged but still welded to my legs cause they rock. You can just see Iam stood on an ice rink yes? Wellll Love Everlasting Plant Pets have this fantastical ice rink up for grabs. All sorts of coloured skates available with a unisex skate animation built right in.

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.

2015 Second Life Christmas Expo!

Christmas Expo - Santa's Sleigh ride

Tada! The Second Life Christmas Expo has flung open its doors and you’re gonna find SO much to do and see and buy. I popped over ahead of the opening to scope the place out, naturally I hopped on Santa’s sleigh and took a ride around. Really a beautiful way to get your bearings and have a little snowy fun. Here’s the Expo’s own word to introduce the event:

“The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo will consist of both holiday and non holiday items from some of the best creators and designers in Second Life, spread across 8 sims!  The Expo will feature special events, including live performances, djs, skating parties, a Snowman Building Contest, Hunt For the Bells, Naughty Or Nice, a Christmas Tree Lot, holiday raffles and gotchas, and of course photos with Santa!   The Holiday Of Hope Ball, for the 5th year running, will be held at the Christmas Expo. And returning to the Christmas Expo as a special event this year is the  Avi Choice Fashion Awards.”

Relay For Life of Second Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and is a virtual version of The Society’s signature real life fundraiser – Relay For Life.”
