Linger

You
my fairytale
my book
to never finish
let me linger
in your pages
a little
ever
longer.

Atticus

There’s a new round of Cosmopolitan open and oh man, shopaholics, I hope you are prepared! This round offers an abundance of amazing creations, be sure to visit and check it out. I’m showcasing new releases from CHEZ MOI, BONDI and NO MATCH which can all be found at the event. This round of Cosmopolitan runs through January 22nd.

I’m wearing the Matt Puffer Jacket and the King Cargo Pants, both from ERAUQS and available at Equal10 and TMD respectively. Both jacket and pants are compatible with Jake (shown on me), Legacy and Gianni male mesh bodies.

Traditions

Some traditions are closer to my heart than others. As a child it’s easy to see magic in everything and especially Christmas and with a little help from loving grown-ups this magic can become real. I believed that Santa came to our house every year after midnight on the 24th of December with our Christmas tree; he decorated it and put all the presents underneath then he hung our Christmas stockings filled with candy on our bedroom doors. Sometimes if I was awake that late I could hear Santa stomping up the steps (yes the steps, he didn’t come down our chimney lol), carrying the tree, I imagined. But since I was bit shy I closed my eyes and hid under the blanket. My sister easily slept through the whole thing every time. I think my parents and my dad in particular had a lot of fun creating this memory for us even if it meant staying up very late.

Gone Shopping

Even though the Christmas holidays officially start December 25th Norwegians kick off Christmas in style on December 24th, on Christmas Eve. The stores all close at noon and following tradition people then attend an afternoon church service and after the church bells ring Christmas at 5 pm it’s time for family and friends to gather for Christmas Eve dinner and the opening of presents.

MYSA helps us count the sleeps left until Christmas with the ‘Sleeps ‘Till Christmas’ sign. It’s an interactive Advent Calendar; click the date and the little tree moves! Available in 3 different colors, two versions included – Group Only and Everyone permissions.

The Lapointe & Bastchild Jett Chinos are available in Jake, Gianni, Geralt, Slink, Legacy and AES sizes. Include both regular and cuffed versions.

Merry Christmas with the Carol Snowmen from CHEZ MOI! Touch it to display the sound menu and some random Xmas sounds will play – you can set the volume and frequency.

I Got This

I got this. Especially now that I have the Sari-Sari Beer Advent Calendar. Then with help from CHEZ MOI I can make gingerbread houses and I can wrap all my presents with the new gift boxes from Granola. Yup. And still look good too, wearing the Crockett outfit from Hoorenbeek.

The Sari-Sari Beer Advent Calendar is both decorative and functional as it dispenses you a holdable beer (male and female and also right and left hand versions). Find this awesome piece at The Warehouse Sale event. Skål!

For Tannenbaum, CHEZ MOI made a fantastic DIY Gingerbread House Decor Set. I couldn’t fit all the set pieces in this picture so make sure you check it out at Tannenbaum!

Granola‘s Noelle Gift Boxes Mod/Transfer versions for Happy Weekend and Mod/Copy versions for the Granola Black Friday Sale. Both sales run through Monday!

It’s Cold Outside

The pupper is properly displaying how we feel right now in this frigid weather. I only take my puppers on short trips outside as Dachshunds aren’t made for freezing temperatures. Best to stay warm and cozy for right now and save the long walks for another day.

The Meriweather Living Room Set from Bricolage consists of sofa PG/Adult, highback chair PG/Adult, ottoman w/single sits, coffee table, side table and a decorative dish. All parts of the sofa & chair are texture change, the ottomans wood base is texture change.

Bricolage, JIAN and CHEZ MOI all have Black Friday sales going on, happy shopping!
