A slight chill

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.  ~Edith Sitwell

I have to show you some newness that has made it's way into my inventory. With this Winter Chill that has taken over I've been finding myself steering towards Tartan patterns. Something about Tartan screams winter and more specifically holidays to me. Adam and Eve recently released a new lingerie set and it's completely cozy and cute. Tarten Lingerie has a softness in it's design and looks as if it would feel warm like fleece or flannel which is quite perfect and ideal for the winter nights. This Cozy lingerie set is available in eight colors and has a several options for customization. Two bottoms are included both a boy short and a panty option as well as stockings with garters. The entire lingerie set is such a deal that it can't be passed up it's the perfect set to wear for snuggling on cold nights.

There is one more goodie I want to point out in this post, The Snowflake Lodge behind me in the photo above. When I first rezzed this home I thought it would look fantastic nestled high above in the mountains with snow and perhaps a few mountain goats clinging some rocks. This gorgeous lodge is available from Aphrodite Shop, which specializes in interactive family scene props, couple props and homes has put in special touches to make this home ideal for the holidays. By clicking on the front steps of this home you will receive a menu which will bring up Snow on the Roof, Lights, Decorations and even Christmas Trees inside and outside of your home. The Snowflake Lodge sits comfortably at 22x22 and is made up of 118 prims.This spacious home is ideal for anyone that is looking for a winter home.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Finally It's winter time! More specifically it's getting closer to Christmas so I'm all giddy already. I absolutely love this magical and special time of the year. I enjoy decorating my SL home, dressing up in cute holiday outfits and even finding special holiday presents around Second Life. It's this time of year that I find so enchanting. I'm going to try my very best to keep you up to date on some events and newness around Second Life. There are so many activities time of year and blogging all items and events is almost impossible, but I'll try my best.

Advent Calendars
Oh goodness... Advent calendars one of the best holiday traditions IMHO because they are so much fun. Counting the days down to Christmas, each day they deliver a special little gift to you. Which makes the anticipation of Christmas grow and the excitement build as the celebration is drawn out.

CDS Monstery Advert Calendar
Arria Perreault curator of the Monstery in CDS has created a wonderful Advent Calendar for this festive season. The Theme of the monastery's advent calandar is Sleep. Each day we are treated to a selection from a series of sleep paintings. This Advent Calendar is wonderful because it's a break from the usual gifts and is a chance to view art and explore a new location. I highly recommend this advent calendar if you would like a place to explore that is peaceful and quiet. 

SwayLand's Advent Calendar
Located right in the middle of the Christmas section of Sways there is a wonderful  Christmas tree with presents under it. Each present is available starting at 4pm slt and is available for 24 hours. SwayLand's Advent Calendar is a bit different because there is a small twist. In order to get each item you must find the hidden box that corresponds to the gift of the day. It's a lot of fun because it's both a hunt and an advent calendar in one. If you miss a day don't worry Sway has you covered, once the day has passed and a new gift is placed under the tree the old gifts are available for purchase.

Ivalde Advent Calendar
This has been my holiday tradition for years now. Every year I look forward to all the goodies that Nef will place under the Christmas tree. This year's advent calendar is a bit different prom previous years because Nef is handing out clues that we must use to find the advent gift selected for the day. I'm enjoying this new twist Nef has given her yearly tradition. In order to participate you must be a member of the Ivalde Group, which will take a group spot, but it's totally worth it when you consider the fantastic free gifts Ivalde provides.
