Matching

Some may think its corny or way too not chic yet for me I do think its sweet when at times you wear matching tops ~ oh am not speaking about a daily or even a weekly thing ~ no that gets to be a tad creepy in my eyes seeing adults always dressed alike ~ the sweaters are from The Arcade by Bleich ♥  oh looking for more gifts head over there and in the middle there is a huge Christmas tree that you can see underneath a lot of gifts ~ still sorting stuff from all the Advents and group gifts ~ speaking of gifts for those that are members of Calas Ty and Truck have the rather fabulous scarves that you see wrapped around our neck as gifts this year…Little Frenchie is a past gift and is still out at the Pavilion for those looking for a cute pet…I am still curious about your thoughts if you think matching holiday sweaters are just creepy or they are alright in moderation…RL is screaming as today is my appointment with a surgeon nothing major ~ before I head out I wanted to comment on the nice remarks that have been getting on my blog posts ~ thank you so much for those as they do mean a lot to me ♥♥ till next time as it gets closer and closer to the big day take time out for yourself ~ enjoy a moment of peace, sip on your favorite drink whether hot, cold, alcoholic or not hehehe…

This truly is my favorite time of year and Christmas is my favorite holiday…did not matter if I barely had enough money to buy gifts or all that overtime made buying gifts easier I still love this holiday ~ for me with Christmas its the feeling you get by listening to Christmas carols, watching all those sappy Christmas movies like “Its a Wonderful Life” w/Jimmy Stewart that I end up bawling over even if I have never missed a year watching that movie…today am sitting with my tablet not even feeling the snow start falling, watching Pentatonix YouTube Christmas videos ~ O M G I am such a fan of their talents, the music and the voices that make up this group ~ they have a new Christmas album called Where are you Christmas ~ for those that might not be in the know of this group they are an Accapella group that I first saw on the reality show “The Sing-Off“, have been a fan ever since ♥  Guess, I should get up and go inside before I am covered in snow as now it is really coming down.  Today will start wrapping pressies in RL and sorting out more of my inventory from all the advents, hunts that I have done and the boxes are still cluttering up my inventory ~ It is hard to personally thank each and every designer that has given gifts at the Epiphany, Arcade, Gimme Gacha, and from the POE hunt ~ yet I appreciate all the gifts as most designers do truly show off their talents with their gifts ♥♥  what I can do is thank all of my readers ~ ones that take time out to comment and let me know they appreciate my blog as it makes me smile knowing♥ hugzz to all and remember December is the month of giving ~ give someone a smile or a hello today ♥

no peeking…

NoPeeking
Have you ever peeked inside one of your presents ~ were you happy you did or felt guilty afterward…One time during my high school years I had asked Santa *yes my parents made us still write Santa Lists*, for a pair of these very popular go-go boots *YES am old hehehe* My girlfriend kept pestering me about I should go peek to see if they got them ~ my tummy was rolling at that since peeking was not something I have ever done and really did not want to start now…since she lived 2 doors down and was always at my house she was becoming annoying with that question ~ on and on till I wanted to say shut up, stop, and alright already…end of the story is yes I did a small peek at the box that you could tell was a boot box but no I never fully opened it and the guilt of peeking was horrid ~ a little funny seeing even as a high schooler perfect was not a word to describe me ~ not a horrible person but did all that I could to push my parents buttons to the point of getting on restriction most of my teen years ♥ After my Dad passed away Christmas Eve was never the same especially for my Mom as her and my Dad would share that night putting out the pressies along with stocking stuff ~ one Christmas Eve  I wanted to do something special, before coming home from work, went to her favorite Chinese carryout, and splurged on her favorites that became our Christmas eve ritual for years to come…it is always nice to have those memories to look back to enjoy even if some are sad and not pleasant ♥ ♥ please remember December is the spirit of giving ♥

This was shot at a friends platform with the help of Delcinea and her partner Lord who I truly thank them for setting this up, giving me some suggestions & tips for future shots…

Cocoa anyone…

CocoaAnyone

Did you know there is a difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate? According to Google and a Chocolate website there are differences as I thought it was only an usage of different words ~seem there is no real definition of either at least in today’s world yet “Traditionally, hot cocoa is a thin, sweetened beverage, made from cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Hot cocoa may or may not contain other flavorings, such as vanilla, liqueur, or spices. Hot cocoa is often less rich and sweeter than hot chocolate. Historically, hot chocolate (also called drinking chocolate or sipping chocolate), is made with actual chocolate (often shaved or ground into fine pieces so it melts quickly). Because of the high-fat content of chocolate, hot chocolate is richer than hot cocoa. Hot chocolate made be made with water (traditional in some parts of Europe) or with milk. It is usually less sweet than hot cocoa, and many makers of hot chocolate pride themselves on having their product be a thick, bittersweet beverage.  Interesting to me my Mom would say hot cocoa because she made it from Hershey’s cocoa powder, sugar, and milk ~ when I got older would add in Baileys to give it a nice little pop.  I wonder how many are doing the POE hunt as this year there are a lot of nice things like the dress am wearing is from the hunt *check credits* ~ for those that are counting down till Christmas you have 18 more days till the big man delivers pressies ~ hugzz to all and to each of you remember to be kind to one another ♥♥

am here…

Festive

Peeking out from my rather long bangs am thinking of absolutely nothing as the last couple days my sinuses have just taken my energy and stuffed it somewhere…It is a good thing my Christmas list is super short and have already finished getting the bigger gifts that I needed.  The Forest ~ Winter Wonderland starts out with you landing at a Train station among a gorgeously done snow scene.  When you look out while waiting for the train to take you around you will see deer grazing as well as the Christmas gnomes that are keeping watch…Plus those amazing igloo’s that are just behind me ~ this is another sim that I will be coming back for more exploring as it deserves a second look ♥  The warm sweater am wearing is one of the pressies from the POE hunt…after years doing this I realize the need to get it done early as a lot of the gifts are geared for Christmas and winter…Peace on Earth hunt is marking its 11th year in SL ~ clicking on the above link will take you to the website where you can find a list of the stores and the prizes♥  The gorgeous scarf wrapped around my neck is a pressie from Ty & Truck owners of Calas and the gorgeous Christmas sim A Midnight Clear ~ it is a group gift that is free and you will find it at the Pavilion under a table close to the front as you come in…lastly my hat/hair was a very nice pressie from my bestie Dena ♥  Before I go please let me thank each of my readers for taking time out to read my blog as this truly makes me smile especially when a stranger sends me an IM telling me they love reading my blog and yes I am surprised at times to hear that honestly did not realize…to my friends and fellow bloggers thank you a well for supporting me ~ till next time hugzz to all ♥

city sidewalks…

NewYork

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air, there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner, you hear…”

New York City is a place that truly celebrates their holidays ~ from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Centre…not a place I would live in because things are hectic, people rushing around and at times a little bit scary for me…yet as a past visitor of that Big Apple it is marvelous to go visit, see the amazing sights especially at Christmas time when you can go ice skating right next to that huge Christmas tree, walk along Fifth Avenue, grab a bag of those delicious roasted chestnuts from a street vendor and many other touristy things that NYC offers…

NewYork1.png

Also, the infamous New York subway that is an experience within the underground you can hear live musicians ~ some famous ~ some not…you never know what you will see down there ~ feeling festive wearing one of the Advent gifts and the necklace that is also a pressie from the Poe hunt *check credits below*  That’s it for now with the exception of a little reminder regarding those suffering from depression as it gets closer and closer to Christmas a lot of individuals truly struggle and need compassion along with making sure they are aware you are there for me even if it is just a short call saying “hello was thinking of you” even a short text might just brighten someone’s day ~ hugzz ♥♥

A Midnight Clear…

A Midnight Clear

“It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From Angels playing near the earth
To touch their harps of gold”

A Midnight Clear is a wondrous collaboration between Tymus & Truck owners of Calas and this is their special Christmas sim that they outdo year after year and of course, this year was no disappointment to me…If you never have experienced Christmas at Calas this is a must see sim that will delight you in ways and words that I just cannot describe. A couple of things you must know before going over there is first there is you have to be under 100 scripts or the script-police will whisk you away ♥  Secondly make sure you have your music turned on and your environment set to the sim one ~ My suggestion is first to take the sleigh tour that you can relax, enjoy the scenery along with the music that Truck has picked out just for this ~

CalasC1

Along the sleigh tour where you can cuddle up with your special someone or ride alone, you will get to a good look at the Emperor Penguins making their arduous trip heading to their breeding site *fyi* did you know they are the largest and heaviest of all penguins…

CalasC2.png
When you land you will be given a nice folder that has all the lm’s to the photo ops like the one you see above with the horse and sleigh w/several couple animations ~ Please remember to keep your scripts under 100 and if you are so inclined please donate some Lindens as Ty & Truck do depend on donations to keep Calas up and running ♥ enjoy your visit to “A Midnight Clear”

“Peace on the earth, good will to men, ‘
From heav’n’s all-gracious King.
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing!”

As always I want to thank all my readers that take time to read my blog and thank those that send me all those comments constructive and nice ~ till next time be kind to one another ♥♥
