Merry

Diesel Works just released a bunch of cute holiday poses, one of which is this great Merry Christmas pose that is a group gift.

I found these fun ugly holiday sweaters by Phunk on the Marketplace and thought they were the perfect combination for the cheesiness that is holiday photos.

Décor is courtesy of mostly Trompe L’Oeil, with a few other things thrown in. Cory Edo has most recently released this mesh cottage at Collabor88 and the lit holiday tree can be found at Fameshed.

Of Snow and Smooching

The northeast of the US has gotten a whole lot of snow in the last week. This is a good thing, since up until now we’ve had pretty much nothing. But it does make for some not-so-fun time shoveling. Another funny snow phenomenon is the  bundling and de-bundling of children as they come in and out of the house, leaving piles of coats and boots and mittens and what-have-you all over the place. Snow is beautiful though, there is no denying it, and if you get the right kind you can throw snowballs at everyone including the photographer.

Luna Jubilee of !bang poses makes some of the sweetest, most romantic couple’s poses on the grid. That may be because she is such a sweet and romantic person herself, but I always find myself checking out her store to see what adorable mushiness she has come up with lately. One of her latest poses is Acting Coy, and it gave Stewart and me a fun and snuggly moment, making us  both smile. Keep it up, Miss Luna!

Stewart is wearing a great sweater today by bleak . from last month’s Mens’ Dept.  There is only one thing keeping this design from being flawless and that is that the front and back patterns do not line up exactly, so you can see I photoshopped the back side of the sweater a bit. However, the design is so so so gorgeous that I

insisted Stewart wear it for this shoot. I look forward to more work from this designer.

A Fan, But Not The Way You Think

I do love the Spanish national team. I really do. Nobody is happier than I am when they win.

070112a

All you ladies who have men who live and die by their favorite sports teams, you know what I mean. When Spain wins, I have a happy home. When Spain wins, all is right with the world.

And Spain won, my friends. Oh, did they ever win.

Thanks, guys.

Big Dogs

My first dog was a small, part Maltese mix named Katie. She was a decent dog, as far as family dogs go, but she was a yapper, and an uncontrollable one at that. She was not an attack dog, but she did love to bark. I have very fond memories of my Katie, but I did learn that a small, yapping dog was not the way I wanted to go in the future. I have always been a big dog kind of girl—the hounds, the working dogs—dogs with a purpose, I call them. Even though my own beautiful Luna does not pull carts or herd sheep like she was bred to do, she does keep watch on the house and deter anyone from approaching me on the street by looking big and scary.

Sadly, no one has made a Bernese Mountain Dog in SL yet—a huge omission if I do say so myself. However, that does not meant that the big dogs get no love:

Carrie Tatsu has created some of the most realistic-looking animals I have seen in SL. Animals are notoriously hard to create in SL—something about all those folding joints, I guess. But this big boy (named Con after one of my favorite vampire novel characters) looks realer than I do, right down to that very curious-canine expression in his eyes. Usually Great Danes aren’t quite so big, but my avatar is only 5’8” in SL, which is apparently midget-sized. But in any case, curling up with a big dog is way more satisfying than with a little one, so if you have your own big goof of a dog, show them some love today.

A dog like Con requires some no nonsense shoes (mostly for chasing) and I am wearing the comfy mesh Uggs from Guu Nishi at Hoc Industries today. Also, Maxi Gossamer has just released a new necklace called Babette, and while there is a very high likelihood that it will get caught on Con’s ears (or in his mouth), I couldn’t resist putting it on today.

**Con does all sorts of doggy things in addition to looking adorable, which you can read about here.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Dandelion

The winners of my Alli&Ali hair challenge last week are:

Tigist Sapphire

Laila Laperriere

Cari Teardrop

Congrats! Send me an email or IM and let me know what style and color you’d like!

So now it’s true confession time—who used to rub dandelion pollen all over their faces when they were little? My mom used to get so mad at my brothers and sisters and I because anytime in June that we were playing outside invariably saw us come home with yellow hands and faces. Rezzie Luckstone’s sunny dandelion tee-shirt brought back lots of springtime memories:

One of my favorite things I am wearing today has to be my mesh sneakers from Hoc Industries. I found these at the Festival of Sin and I haven’t taken them off since!

Just leave your comment below by Friday, March 2nd.
