So there’s another one of these like right below this, so I hope you check it out too, but let’s go! Today’s(being Monday, December 18) #SecondLifeChallenge from my hero, Strawberry Singh, goes something like this:
Here are the instructions for the #SecondLifeChallenge this week: Share a picture or video of a winter scene in Second Life. Tell us a bit about the location and/or what you are wearing.
Like Cary Elwes (who looked SO hot in this movie) said, “As you wish.”
I’m at the Garden of Whimsy Winter Wonderland, which has everything a winter explorer could desire – ice skating, snow, sleighs, beautiful trees and some wonderfully colorful and festive light displays. I spent the evening exploring and had a fantastic time.
I’m wearing a turtleneck sweater from the Paper Arrow, which came in the December Luxe Box! If you remember, the November box was something of a disappointment for me, but December has REALLY made up for it. I’m working on another set of pictures wearing some of my favorites from December, look for that post soon!
So after all that exploration in the cold while wearing a really, really weather-inappropriate denim miniskirt, I returned home to find my close friend, Danni, under the Christmas tree for a romantic cuddle. I don’t know that I can think of a better way to wrap up an evening spent exploring the winter wonderlands of Second Life.
What I’m wearing:
Sweater: Cozy Turtleneck by Paper Arrow Co (December 2017 Luxe Box)
Skirt: Denim Skirt by Blueberry (January 2017 Luxe Box)
Boots: Autumn by REIGN
Hair: Irenka by Truth
I spend a lot of my Monday mornings just like this. My fingers poised above and hammering away at a keyboard, bottom lip wrenched to one side and bit down upon while noodling away at a thought or a problem, wishing I was dressed much like I am here, in something fun and comfy as opposed to…office-y.
On a more cheerful note, my Luxe Box arrived Sunday! If you’re not familiar with Luxe Box, think of it as a subscription Christmas (or the surprise gift holiday of your choice). One subscribes every month for 1500L, and, on the 15th, is delivered 10-12 items of clothing, footwear, hair, furniture, and fun knick-knacks. I’m never disappointed in this – the top I’m wearing is a fatpack that likely would have sold for about 800-1000L at a shopping event – I got it along with 11 other items for the bargain price of 1500L.
I know some folks don’t like the unknown element to the Luxe Box…what if you don’t get something you want? I suppose that’s a possibility, but I’ve been getting my monthly Luxe Box for 18 months now and it’s never let me down.
Today’s post features four of my favorite items from this month.
The top is a cute little sweater from Paper Arrow, which had me squee’ing gleefully the second I put it on. I love the style, I love the texture (I can practically FEEL the warm fabric against me), and the little heart cut-out is just playfully flirty in a way that makes me happy.
The socks are from NX-Nardcotix, and come in ten textures for either high or flat feet. I actually wear really similar socks for knocking around the house, so these popping up in my LB made me grin.
This hair is from Moon. If I’m honest, Moon hair isn’t always my favorite – it’s always incredible quality and includes a myriad of colors and ombres, but it’s just not quite ‘my style’…until today. This one is JUST RIGHT for me – I put it on Sunday morning around 1:00 AM SLT and haven’t taken it off since. The darker roots of the ombre with the really lovely blond just hit all the right notes for me, and it’s made me reconsider all of the Moon hairs in my inventory – maybe there’s one that really deserves a second look!
While one can’t really get a good look at it in this picture, I’m reclining on a wagon by Tarte (from the October Luxe Box, natch) that looks absolutely gorgeous. It’s got an amazing weathered wood texture that I can just feel as I imagine running my fingertips over it, the rough grain of the wood against my skin, the cool heads of the nails, darkened and maybe even slightly rusted with time. The lights strung around it are charming and very romantic, making it a perfect setting for the couple animations (both PG and not-so-PG rated) included. I’m sure I’ll use it for photos again soon.
Oh now come on, self, this little trademark is getting out of hand! (Although, let’s be fair, these little shorts are sexycute AF, right?)
