Our holiday show this year includes a reading of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg. Since the chorus is mostly background to the reading, it can be a bit of a snooze-fest, but there is a lovely schmaltzy part at the end that goes like this:

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly

You have everything you need
If you just believe

-Glen Ballard, Alan Silvestri

Love Donna Flora~Kaerri, Amacci, Lazuri

I love the colors and intensity of the items that I photographed today. The Kerri Pavone set is striking and beautiful.



Carina Larsen’s beautiful Daphne hair and Zuri Lyric’s Maysoon color-change earrings complement the Pavone colors.

Amacci~Updos Part 2

Amacci needs it’s own blog post for Hair Fair because Carina Larsen has dropped four stunning designs for women at Hair Fair this year. Carina is able to make hair shine like only the best shampoo commercials—or at very least what you would get at a very pricey hair salon! The Amacci booth can be found on the Hair Fair Port sim.

Events, Events, and More Events

The Boutique at the Liaison Collaborative has opened, and there are some great items to be found there, you know, if you have any Ls left this month! Ikon Innovia has released another new line of eyes named Ardent. Ikon has been a busy little bee and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. Also a favorite is Caelan Hancroft’s new Sakura jewelry set. Finally, this sweet sundress from Rebel Hope is a perfect match for my cherry blossom trees.

My skin is the new Rayna skin from Amacci at Skin Fair. This is going in the books as another of my favorites this year.

    Wow so pretty in your girlie summery look… I love the close up against the cherry blossoms Eliza… You look gorgeous!


The February shopping events this month have been notable for their gorgeous offerings. I must pay tribute to my dear Maxi Gossamer, who is surpassing herself these days with ever more gorgeous jewelry. My earrings are from the most recent round of Limited Bazaar, and my necklace and earrings are from the new round of Collabor88, which started today.  Not to mention her beautiful sets from this round of FaMeshed.

    Gotta love MG… I can’t get enough of her jewellery! I love the turquoise on the gold too!

Snow Day

Do any of you have a friend that not only lets you dress them up for pictures but also tolerates snow being stuffed in their face? I do.


Clearly he’s a keeper. Stewart is bearing the switch to mesh clothing with good grace…most of the time. And he does wear it well!


And speaking of keepers, there is so much fabulous mesh goodness flying around this holiday season. The Frostbite Cottage has been a huge hit since Collabor88 opened last Saturday. I personally haven’t wanted to take off Trill Zapatero’s  gorgeous knitted sweaters since the minute they came out. And Scout Danger of Sanctuaire has made a wonderful mesh tree in three different versions, undecorated, lights only or fully decorated. Add to that the lovely mesh giftboxes from Cory Edo and my cozy boots from KKC, and I am one happy girl.

Hair Fair 2012: Flower

It was hard to choose favorites on this sim, there were a lot of styles that I really liked. However, I have to say that two of my absolute favorites came from the same store! Ah, well, I am a sucker for an updo.  All of these great styles can be found on the Flower sim.

Holding On

Summer vacation is one month away. I confess that this year it is getting increasingly difficult to hold on—especially since I was ready for summer back in March! So today I am imagining myself in a summer getaway and doing some dreaming in the shade of palm trees and Barnesworth Anubis’ gorgeous tableau hut.

Summer, I’ll see you soon.


I have had one or another of Hush Darkrose’s skins on probably for the last month at least. Every new one that comes out just makes me that much more of a Hush aficionado. This one is a newer skin called Marin, and I love the realistic lighting and flushed cheeks. You can’t be in the tropics and avoid this. Another favorite of mine today is the Inlaid Seahorse necklace from Maxi Gossamer. Maxi has a style all her own and this one has to be one of my favorites.

Things To Come

It really isn’t spring yet. My mind knows that there are a few more days to go, but the weather has been so kooky this year that my body is fully tricked into thinking it’s halfway through spring and that summer is on the way—time for slowing down, for bare feet, for comfy jeans, for getting rid of the pasty white complexion. Happily all of this is available right now in SL. The summer-lover in me always heads to Lily Ixtar’s Belle Bayou. Many of her builds are based on places from her real life…all I can say is I envy her.



My comfy and body-skimming jeans are all the rage now from Elie Spot, and my skin is a new release from Samara Pennell at Unique, called Brazilian. Now, I am not Brazilian or anything like unto it, but if I could look like this I might not mind claiming that nationality. For the close up I did no photo editing beyond cropping and blurring the background a little.
