Charmed



        Trying to find hair that works with a hood or hat in SL is hard, so Apple May Designs and Runaway collaborated on this set that I am wearing today. The Runaway May hair fits perfectly under the Apple May Hoodie Dress and you can find both at The Liaison Collaborative. I am also featuring the new Cae jewelry set, Eira, that is at the current round of faMESHed. It reminds me of snowflakes and the pearls, jewels, and metals change via HUD. My poses complete with glowing orb are new by NanTra at Winter Solstice in the Mystic Realms. Finally, I am wearing new boots from Essenz that are new at Limit 8. This is a limited edition event. There are 5 packs of 3 colors each boots and only 200 copies of each will ever be sold.

Girls Rule!




        I made a girl hangout! The Horror is at the Arcade with the Grrl Club set. I did not even realize what it was at first, but when I saw it at the Arcade it hit me- it is a girl secret club house set! I love it. I kept trying for the bubble chair that goes in this set and I could not pull it yet. I did get lots of fuzzy chairs though, woohoo. If you are a girl friend of mine, be expecting a Girl's Hangout landmark coming soon. Girls RULE!

        I am wearing Apple May Designs Animal Socks at Ultra and "My Cute Big Glasses" at Shiny Shabby.  I also have a Kaithleen's bodysuit and crop top on and new hair from Doe. The Blythe hair is new at Sanarae and the Snowy horns are the Rare prize and they even have a "sparkle" option. I am actually wearing pink sparkle snow horns above!

My Lucky Dress




        Have you watched the new Gilmore Girls on Netflix? I have to admit that I have some mixed feelings although I loved seeing the characters in Stars Hollow again. (To see my thoughts on the show, click this Plurk link.) I am wearing the FREE "Gilmore" charm bracelet which is a free gift from Cae, so I wanted to re-create a fashion look from the new show. I tried really hard to find a red shirt dress that was exactly like Rory's lucky dress, but I could not find it. I feel like I got the "vibe" of its main parts with this top and skirt from The Secret Store. I enjoy creating looks from favorite characters and I love the fun fashion in Gilmore Girls! If you want to see some fashion highlights from the new show, read this article on eonline.




         This cute charm bracelet is a FREE Cae group gift to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Cae! Happy 4 years Cae and thank you for this cute bracelet.

Decorations

     


          It is the last few days of the November round of Mesh Body Addicts. If you still have a few items you want, make sure to go soon. It ends November 30th. I am wearing the dress from Asteria that is at the event. The corset back of this dress is amazing and the satin textures are gorgeous. My hair that is long and still shows my sexy back is new by Wasabi Pills at the current round of Uber.  Finally my backward facing pose that makes it all possible is new by Nantra at Ultra.

        In my scene, you can see the Christmas tree that Hiram and I decorated last night. We went to Tannenbaum and got the Botanical tree and a bunch of gacha ornaments. It was a lot of fun! You should definitely make plans to make your own tree this year.

         I only have one request. If you are making gacha ornaments, please make them modify so we can link them and save prims. A few of my ornaments were not modify and I did not realize until after we trimmed the tree. I had to go through them one by one to figure it out. When I finally located all the non-modify ornaments and linked the others, I cut the land impact in half. It went from 100 to 48 and really that is the only way making a custom tree makes any sense. So please designers, modify is a  must with Christmas ornament gacha items.

        I am exploring a new sim, Everlong. It is a watersim with lots of winter elements. I am actually standing with water all around me but my windlight (Kirsten's Snow Day) makes everything look like snow, lol. Uber started yesterday and Just Because made this gorgeous dress, scarf, and boots with socks. I love this set. The boots are especially gorgeous!

14 Years and You Still Rev My Engine

     

        Hiram and I celebrated 14 years together November 16th. That is a crazy long time. Someone on plurk said it was like 100 RL years, lol. I think it would be hard to find anyone else together online for that long. Through everything, Hiram is my best friend and I can't imagine my life without him. He is so smart, creative, and talented. He challenges me and keeps me interested. He is silly and fun (something I need because I am serious, focused, and driven). He balances me out and is the yang to my yin. Peas and carrots. Peanut Butter n' jelly. Hiram and Kirsten.

Happy 14 Years, Timothy! Thank you for making them wonderful.

Warm Springs




        Just Because released this new outfit, Aubrey shirt and Chrissy pants, in the main store yesterday. These are great fall/winter pieces. I love the retro, high waist vibe of the pants and the backside is appreciated by my partner, Hiram. The long sleeve top has a cute keyhole opening. Truth just released two new hairstyles and also a new VIP group gift. The Truth VIP group is still only 265L- so if you have been on Mars or something and have missed joining, make sure you join today. You can get two FREE hairstyles this month so far already. I am wearing the super cute new Truth Ginger style today. Finally, Essenz just released the Florence heels and they are so cute. I am going to show the back of this outfit as well as close ups of these shoes below to show the details. They have cute little transparent ruffles all along the edges and a slim bow in front. I adore all these new pieces and they are all new main store releases!




        If you are looking for some great back poses, Nantra just put out a whole set at Ultra. The Don't Look Back set consists of 12  backward facing poses in all in a convenient pose stand. You can always open the pose stand to copy the poses to your inventory so you can use them out and about on location as I did as well.
