Baby, it’s cold outside..

.. and what better to warm your cockles than a new round of C88?! I’ve mixed and matched a few items here, so bear with me (I also used the new LL Beta Viewer to try out pics, not convinced yet but who knows, I like being to use ambient occlusion again!)

I found a doorway, was it to Narnia?  It was to MY Narnia, or was that Nirvana? I wish it was THE Nirvana, but ho hum, you can’t work miracles, or can you?

Trompe Loeil - My Door to Narnia

This is my new, and wonderful home, the one the door leads to, or from.. depends on which way you’re going, I suppose.  It’s the new Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil for this months Collabor88 and boy oh boy, it’s a beaut!  It’s mesh (obvs) and CUTE. LOOK AT IT.   It’s not huge inside, more like a hideaway cabin, but I love that it comes with it’s own fresh snow and snow covered pine trees, and inside a beautiful fire to warm you up!   I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of Trompe Loeil, I almost squee’d my pants when I saw this, true story.

Circa also have a lot of hoilday items out at the minute, including an advent calender too!   This fireside table and comfy looking chair are among my favourite of the larger items, so I positioned them careful so I could stare out of the window, incase there were.. you know.. vampires or wolves about… so I could just get naked and wait.. figure out how to protect myself.

Circa meets Trompe Loeil here!  The other C88 items from the Trompe include chairs, and a loveseat, in various colours to match the palette.  They are comfy, and gorgeous and are definitely something you want in your little loveshack or getaway.  I paired them up with a cute frosted mirror, and a few hanging pine decorations as well as a celestial side table and a noel candle decoration item from Circa!  I couldn’t find my table, so it lives on the floor, you’ll understand, right?   You have to visit both C88 and Circa to get your hands on these babies!

Here is a little something I threw together with some close ups of the gorgeous array of Circa going on in my Frostbite Cottage!  You’ll agree it’s all adorable and it’s the little touches that make it worthwhile!

Now onto my other fave thing.. My C88 LoTD!!!  I do love when a new round starts and I can play dress up for a while, especially because I love everything at C88, always, without exception (ok a few times there are exceptions, but not often!).  Fashionably Dead came up with a GREAT item/s this time around!  You get cute lil collared long sleeve dresses and Sweaters that fit over them! LIKE SNUG FIT!! Ugh so in love, you can wear as separates too, but I love that these fit together like a jigsaw, LOVE!   I chose the yellowy colour and paired it with a black sweater, to compliment my Vail boots from Hucci! Shown here in Midnight, also available in Alpine, that is referring to the fur colour!  Also worn is one of the 2 new Wasabi Pills styles.  This is version 2, which comes in a lil pony, version 1 is free flowing down your back! Both very gorgeous.

LoTD - 08/12/12 - C88 Style

Also worn are the gorgeous mesh La Gyo earrings, and of course, one of the new 3 Frostbite Glam Affair Skins! La Gyo have various items out for your perusal, but I love these earrings! So cute and colour change too! YAY!   The skins, as you can imagine, made me fall in love.  You can get the three looks shown below, I don’t know how you’d manage just one tho!  I wouldn’t be able to resist the rosy cheeks, the icey eyes or the kissable gloss on any of the three!

More to come on Collabor88, but I hope you liked the above items for now! Except this tree, which is so cute it deserves to be here (Circa.. go! NOW!)

HOHOHO… or something.

I am lacking for inspiration for blog titles, so… sorry about that!

A few items for you in this post, Collabor88 has opened and is FULL of awesomesauce, I expect I’ll be blogging some of that for you soon enough, but for now a few random odds and ends that I love!

Lexi Morgan put out these leather ruffle skirts the other day, and I knew I had to own one, if not all of them!  So when she also later released her “Ugly Sweatshirts”, I figured that was my cue to get on down there!   Nothing says Christmas more like an Ugly Sweater, does it? We’ve all been there, some of us enjoy it, it’s a tradition to find the worst sweater, some of us just wanna be snug as a bug in a rug with a festive twist.  You maybe on either side of that fence, or on a different one all together, but I saw this Cat styled one and I knew it was mine!   There are other styles and each is standard sized, so you don’t have to worry, large or small there IS an Ugly Sweater for you!

Nimil Blackflag has also started releasing again after the birth of her son, Vincent!  These oversized sweaters are Songbirds offering for Twisted Krissmuss!   I wasn’t sure about the large cuffs at first, then I realised I would love this in RL, I love sweaters like this that are meant to be big and baggy and hide a multitude of sins, including ALL the Christmas chocolates and more turkey than you can shake a stick at! YAY!   There are styled in a grungey fashion and come with a skull and splat version, with various sizes too! YAY!

Another Arcade SL goodie collage here!  Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant teamed up to bring us HAIR! YES! HAIR! It comes in M and F versions both L and S sized, so you will probably find a good size to fit you!   These aren’t all the textures available at the Gacha, just a selection, but I am loving them!  Particularly the dip dyed ones!   A very sleek looking style, this really does work on either sex avatar, and I expect a few boys I know will be wearing this for a good while!   Make sure you get on over to the Arcade and check them out, the rares are small packs of colours too! YIPPEE!
