Watch Out!





I am keeping an eye out for Sirius Black today.  I am not quite sure why since he was one of the good guys.  I did always wonder about that since people like Dumbledore and Snape should have known he wasn't a danger...shouldn't they?

I am showing some items from the FROST Fair which has just begun and from the AviChoice Holidays Event which is 2 sims (SIM 1 and SIM 2) with 50 Holidays shops. The shops have Naughty or Nice gift givers and you get either a FAB gift or, if you have been naughty, something not so nice.  The good news is that if you get a naughty gift you can go back in an hour and try again!  Better than Santa.  You have til the 20th to go grab all the freebies here.

Anyway, I am going to head off for a butterbeer soon but before I do here is what I am wearing...

Coat:  Sassy! - Let It Snow Coat (FROST Fair)
Tights:  MoDANNA - Myriade Collection - Wool Tights (FROST)


Hair:  eXxEsS - X-Mas 2014 (Free Gift)
Skin:  WoW Skins - Didy Milk 01 (Naughty or Nice @ AviChoice Holiday Sims)
Lipstick:  Ever An' Angel - Tone - Sirens - Seduce (Naughty or Nice @ AviChoice Holiday Sims)
Earrings:  *rockCandy - Blinking Blub Earrings (Naughty or Nice @ AviChoice Holiday Sims)

Poses:  {NanTra} - Eternal Beauty Set (Gothmas by Gaslight)

Tubing





I had to get in and show you these before Arya did.  Ha!  I win!  They are from Image Essentials and are at the FROST Fair.  They are aptly named Tubing.


I am wearing a 'tattoo' called Snow Dusted from [Even~Tide] at the RFL Christmas Expo.  It comes with SLink Appliers so you can make yourself have that covered in snow look.  


These Grey Denim Pants are from REDPANDA and are in the MENStuff Hunt (#74).  You can colour change the underwear to suit what you are wearing. 


This Snowflake Disc Necklace is also at the Christmas Expo and is from Hearthaven Photography and Creations.  For guys or girls, but I saw it first so another win for me!

The hat/hair is from Damselfly and is called Brock.  It is a unisex look and you can grab it at the KittyCatS Advent Calendar.

Destined for Winter





I know I should be adding non-wintery sims in the destinations, but I just don't wanna!  Mainly cos I keep finding cool (pun intended) sims to show you.  You can find all the SLURLs for these on the Winter Wonderlands page.

Umbral - This sim has loads of fabulous sights and will be perfect for any wintery shots especially if you need an older feel to the shot.  Tyson used this the other day for photos needing that 1800's vibe.


Somewhere Near Aspen - This cool village comes with train station, ice pond and a variety of streets and stores all with that holiday feel.


Nordan om Jorden - I love the wide open spaces in this sim.  Plenty of animals about too and some great snow-covered cars and vehicles.  Definitely has the farm feel and look.

A Gentleman





Today I get to be a gentleman.  I feel very Lordly indeed.  I was wishing I had a cane to walk with but could not find one, sadly.



This great ensemble is from BlueMoon Enterprise and is called Vintage Christmas Mens.  It is at the RFL Christmas Expo and turns one from street urchin to refined in the press of a button or two.

Comes with all you see here including the hat and shoes.
