Nothing Burns Like The Cold

It's been one crazy Winter. One week warm and the next two week freezing. Everyone has the flu and is laying low, so I am trying to make the best of it. At least the days are getting longer now.
I am going to make this post quick, despite the fact that there are so many lovely items to talk about...

The super talented NyuNyu Kimono of NYU, created this super adorable shift dress for Seasons Story. I love the clean lines and minimalist look of this piece, which NyuNyu is so famous for. It just goes to show that beautifully rendered mesh and great textures speak volumes.

Nina Helix of .Birdy., made this lovely new skin that I am wearing. It is called Savannah and is a Seasons Story exclusive too. Nina also created those uber cute bunny coffee mugs behind me. They are called Bunny Cafe and are an OMGacha exclusive this month! Nina makes such amazing mesh items and you will definitely want to collect all of these Bunnies! They are only 75L per play, so make sure you try your luck!
The talented Gyorgyna Larnia finally created a new release for the LaGyo Mainstore! It is this stunning feather necklace that I am wearing. This dramatic Mollie Necklace has a bohemian feel to it, yet still makes a bold statement, I am really in love this necklace, so make sure you check it out ASAP!
Uff! I know it is hard to see, but Caelyn Hancroft created the shorter necklace. It has disk shaped pendant with a tree in it. Not only is it perfectly rendered, but it comes with a HUD that lets you fully customize the colors. I will have to wear it again to show you. Caelyn is really making a name for herself by designing some of the most beautiful jewelry on the grid. The necklace is another Seasons Story exclusive this month!
 Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea has been very busy lately, making amazing furniture and home decor items for several events this month. One of my favorite items is this Roux Coffee Station for The Neighborhood. Obviously, I love coffee and anything related to it. However, this is the perfect addition to one's virtual kitchen. Especially when it is cold outside (like it has been in RL), since it adds lots warmth and charm. 
I think I covered almost everything. Please forgive me if I forgot anything. Here are the LMs and Credits:

Not all those who wander are lost...

I once again apologize for my lack of posts this month. My RL has been absolutely crazy and I have not had much time for SL. Because of this, I feel a bit overwhelmed by all the amazing and wonderful new releases and events. There are so many fabulous items to blog and so little time! I will try to make this post quick, so I can catch-up.

Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice, created this STUNNING Kirsty dress for this month's FaMESHed. This chic and flirty strapless dress is absolutely gorgeous. I love the sleek lines that are offset with a ruffle on the side. As always, Sissy rendered this dress to perfection with beautiful textures and tones. Please make sure you run and grab this lovely frock before FaMESHed comes to a close!

This gorgeous skin that I am wearing is a Cosmetic Fair Winter Edition exclusive from aida Ewing of Glam Affair. It is her latest Mokatana skin, which is available in Artic skin tone and comes 8 vibrant fashion forward make-ups. aida's skins are always lovely and well thought out. Each skin comes with 8 brow colors (embedded into the skin) and 2 mole options on tattoo layers. Please do yourself a favor and demo it ASAP!
This amazing Chantelle Bib Necklace, which I decided to pair with my dress, is from that talented Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo. This all mesh piece is a carefully crafted wearable work of art. It is also a Collabor88 exclusive and is available in 3 beautiful metals (grey, pink and black). This is yet another item that needs to be on your must grab list.
I don't typically wear antlers, but when I saw these fabulous Winter Antlers from Amberly Boccacio of Glam Affair, I just could not resist! They can be worn as dramatic headpiece or by fantasy avatars. They are a Seasons Story exclusive and come in 6 yummy colors. They are beautifully rendered and definitely make a statement!
To top off my whimsical winter look, I chose this gorgeous new hair release from Mr Truth Hawks. This sexy side-swept do, is called Rowan. Truth has been a roll lately, releasing tons of wonderful new styles, Make sure you get your butt over to his mainstore, so you can demo them all!

With that said, here are your LMs and Credits:

This has been a crazy month for me. My computer is still having major problems, so please bare me with me. I will try to make this post quick, so here goes....
I absolutely adore this cozy chic sweater dress from Marry Lemur of Overhigh. It is the perfect dress for colder months and can be easily layered too.

I paired this dress with these gorgeous new leather Avani High Boots from Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice! They are a Seasons Story exclusive and come in ton of lovely colors. Every girl needs a pair of sexy thigh high boots, so make sure you that grab these. 

There are so many wonderful accessories that are available this month. I love this leather Diana Satchel from Snow Martiel of BenS Beauty .

What can I say? I love the latest Mokatana skin line from aida Ewing of -Glam Affair-. You can grab even more 8 delightful make-ups in Jamaica and Europa skin tones at this month's Collabor88. As always she comes with a TON of options! You get 4 lip styles, 8 brow colors (embedded into skin), 3 glosses and 2 mole tattoos.

Winter Events!

There are so many great events that are going on right now that is almost impossible to keep up. So for this post, I wanted to show a sampling of some of favorite my event exclusives that feature skin, hair and accessories....

I am absolutely in LOVE with this latest new skin from -Glam Affair-, called Magenta! What makes this skin extra special, is that aida created it in a new skin tone, called Asia. Just like the name of the skin tone, the facial features reflect a more Asian ethnicity, which are absolutely beautiful! This special edition was created for this round of The Seasons Story. Magenta comes in 6 stunning make-up and a TON of options that include: 8 brown options (embedded into the skin), 5 lip tattoos, 3 nose tattoo, 3 cheek enhancers (tattoo layer), Slink hand and feet appliers, Lolas Tango appliers and Phat Azz appliers! 
This is definitely one of my favorite Glam Affair skins to date, so make sure you demo it ASAP!
Collabor88 is here is again and the exclusives are TO DIE FOR! I am totally crazy about this new hair style from Bubbles Clawtooth, called Female Trouble! I just love the super sexy styling, which is tousled to perfection, giving you 'just-got-out-of bed' look! This is one my all time MUST HAVE hair styles!
Speaking of brilliant Collabor88 creations, Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo created this lovely Chantelle necklace and earrings. These pieces are so simple and glamorous at the same time.They are available in a choice of 3 metals and are the perfect finishing touch for any outfit!

Since I was so busy with RL over the Holidays, I didn't get a chance to post all the new items that I wanted to. So I am going to do it now! 
nina Helix of .Birdy. Skins, created this beautiful new skin line, called Jordan. Jordan comes in more darker ethnic skin tones, in contrast to Nina's lighter toned skin releases. She is available in 6 lovely skin tones, which include: Toffee, Latte, Olive, Coco, Mocha and Cafe. The skin itself is pretty much bare, but it is so gorgeous that is does not need much make-up. Each skin comes with the following options: dewy skin, matte skin, glossy lips (embedded into skin), matte lips (embedded into skin), no brows (embedded into skin), penciled brows (embedded into skin) and natural brows (embedded into skin), 2 lipsticks (tattoo) and eyeliner (tattoo) So, if you are looking for stunning ethnic skin, you must check out Jordan!
M4ri1yn Magic of ~Tableau Vivant~  has been making such wonderful lately! I really adore this recent release, called Noel. It was a December Collabor88 exclusive, but it should be in that ~Tableau Vivant~  Mainstore by now. The hair is unisex and is made of rigged mesh, so it comes in several sizes. I love the HUD driven color packs which are based on the 4 Seasons. This is gives you a ton of wonderful tones choose from. The hat is texture change too via HUD and allows for every color imaginable. This is definitely a Winter MUST!
These amazing statement earrings by AvaGardner Kungler, were a TDR Fusion exclusive from (Kunglers Extra) and come in 3 different metals (copper, gold and silver). I do hope you can pick these up in the Mainstore too.

IKON's Promise Eyes and Belleza's RIA!

I am so excited! Ikon Innovia of IKON is now a FaMESHed regular! This means more stunning new mesh eyes, from my all time favorite eye creator! For this month's FaMESHed, Ikon released the new Promise Eyes, which are absolutely gorgeous. I love the window reflection in the eye and the details are so life-like. Well, take a look for yourself...

IKON Promise Eyes - Various Colors- Group 1 (S)
IKON Promise Eyes - Various Colors- Group 2 (S)
These are just a few of the brilliant colors available.They basically come in every color imaginable and only cost 150L per pair. The biggest problem is choosing a color, since they are all so lovely! Each purchase includes: 5 sizes of both regular system eyes, mesh eyes (can be worn without the mesh attachments too), and a convenient HUD for precise fitting, various options and different effects. The HUD is easy to use and allows for a perfect fit in a matter of seconds.You can easily change the overall size of the eye or just the iris and pupil, you can change the degree of shading on the white of the eyes, add glow and add brightness.

There are different sizes of eyes that you can chose from, plus a fitting guide...

Plus two types of shading....

IKON Promise Eyes - Silverleave (S)

 I really love the precise fit and control that the HUD gives you. They make Ikon's eyes that much more amazing! So what are you waiting for, go demo these eyes ASAP!

Shyla Diggs of -Belleza- created this seriously gorgeous new skin, called RIA. It is also a Collabor88 this month! RIA is definitely Shyla's best skin to date! I absolutely adore the mouth and skin is so luminous. She is comes in a choice of 5 different make-ups, which are available in choice 4 skin tones. Each make-up cmes with a ton of options, which include: 2 freckle tattoos, 2 mole tattoos, 4 brow colors embedded into the skin (dark, brown, brown and red) and 10 lip tattoos (5 gloss and five matte). So make sure you run to Collabor88 and demo this beautiful skin now!
Speaking of events, the December cycle of L'accessoires is continuing on until the 15th of this month! This brilliant Umpa Lumpa Necklace (which comes in 5 different colors), by Neftisis Rhiadra of MiWardrobe, is just one of the many fabulous event exclusives that are for sale. Plus, the Christmas Hunt is still going on until 15th as well.  How does the hunt work? You will find a Santa's Hat on each designer's table at L'accessoires.

Always Save Some Of The Best For Last!

If you read my blog often, then you know I tend to wait towards the end of an event to post some of my favorite items. I would love to post such items as soon as I get them, but the feeds are usually so saturated with the same designs at that time. So this is why I like to wait until the things slow down a bit. Plus, these are often creations that you may have forgotten about, especially if you were not able to get into the event right away.
I was soooooo excited to find out that Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya is now a permanent Collabor88 designer! Her debut creations for December were absolutely phenomenal, but I would expect no less from this iconic and gifted designer.

Onyx created this fabulous Oversized Coat in several lovely soft and muted tones. I can never have enough over-sized coats, especially ones like this that work well for layering. I paired Onyx's Panel Leggings with this coat, since they went together perfectly! I also adore the geometrical feel that the panels give to the overall look. Please make sure you run over to Collabor88 to try on these demos, since today is the last day for the December cycle!

Speaking of gorgeous December Collabor88 exclusives, Bubbles Clawtooth of Clawtooth, created this AMAZING headband adorned hair style, called Snuggle Party! The name of this hair says it all. The over-sized knit headband (I know it is not really a headband, but my brain is a bit dead at the moment) keeps your head warm and cozy, while still looking fabulous. Plus, I love the wispy and slightly messy tendrils. Bubbles has been on a roll lately, especially when it comes to creating such gorgeous and unique hair styles. This is another MUST demo at Collabor88 before it ends. 
aida Ewing of -Glam Affair-, created a new line of skin for this round of Collabor88. It is called, Mokatana (Hmm... I wonder where she got this name from?) and she is seriously lovely! It is available in the America skin tone and comes in several beautiful make-ups with 7 different brow colors embedded into the skin! Need I say DEMO it ASAP?

I'm on a bit of deadline, so if I forgot to mention anything, please forgive me. Here are your LMs and Credits:
