Santa, You Got Mail

In my letter to Santa there is only one wish, one that can’t be bought. I’ll just keep it in my heart and hope that one day my wish comes true.

I’m wearing the L&B Havoc Sweater XMAS which is a VIP Group Gift – Wear your group tag and go pick it up at the L&B VIP room!

In front of me is HJM Designs‘ adorable Santa’s Mailbox Scene; a lighted tree, a squirrel, a bird, and Santa’s Mailbox sitting on a snowy rock. The bird animates by Touch. The scene is Copy/Modify and 5 Li out of the box. This item is available at the HJM Designs mainstore and marketplace!

The backdrop is DiMi’s magical “Winter Lights” scene; complete with lighted trees and grass, snow mounds, sled, snowshoes, a kitty in a basket and a snowman bear holding a sparkling lantern. Magical! The scene is 83 Li, Copy/Modify, you can edit linked all the items and move them around as you wish. Available at DiMi’s mainstore and marketplace now!

Procaffeinating

(noun)
the tendency to not start anything until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

Good morning! Are you like me and need a cup of coffee or tea to start your day? I’m at work. I have opened my work e-mail and I took a peek at the cases in our incident report system because I’m going to do some case work.. but first, I need coffee. It might be the absence of daylight that’s affecting me (it’s 10 a.m. and dark as night), I’ve been super slow getting started today.

It’s good then, that No. 59 has made this amazing espresso machine! It can make you espresso, espresso lungo, latte, cappuccino, house coffee, hot chocolate and tea! Just click the power button to activate the machine and flip through the menu shown on the display. Click [START] and you can watch as the machine makes your brew of choice, when it’s finished the cup or glass will attach to your hand with a hold and drink animation. There are two types of machines; one with Experience (activate the experience on your parcel following the instructions in the attached notecard) and one with regular prop attach. It also has a HUD controlled texture changer.

Oh, and I’m wearing the FKD 2019 Christmas sweater which I’ve previously shown with a different texture. Bold and festive! 😉

Home For Christmas

As a young man and poor student, I always went home to my parents’ every year for Christmas. The drive from the University and home was just 3,5 hours. 4 in a blizzard. Still to this day, many, many… years later, and me living in a town even further away because of work my mum asks me if I’m coming home for Christmas. Family is important to me, but it’s a 12 hour drive, in snow, so the puppies and I are staying home most Christmases and celebrate with friends. Home is a lot of places.

MINA has made a new male hair! Casual handsome long hair that’s tucked behind the ears and cap, the MINA Wim is perfect for your every day look. The hair is equipped with a color change HUD for the hat with 6 assorted colors and material options. It’s available at Santa Inc. that’s now open!

I’m also wearing another version of the L&B Swear Havoc Sweater that I blogged for the first time yesterday. The sweater is available at TMD.

Sander

Some wise words guys before the Holidays, you’re welcome :p

This sweater though! Click on the picture for HQ version, do it and see why L&B has been one of my favourite outfitters since I became resident. The Swear Havoc Sweater is a new release by Lapointe Bastchild and it is out now at TMD! All pacs give you the choice of mock turtle neck or crew neck sweater. You can of course purchase select single sweaters but if you choose to buy the fatpack you get a grand total of 45 different knit options of which 8 are fatpack exclusive theme knits.

I’m wearing the sweater together with the L&B Gage Tuxedo Slacks. Hide the belt and you have a perfect fit. The sweater is also compatible with the L&B Swear Havoc Jeans and the Havoc Leather pants.

Meanwhile, in Norway…

If you read my previous blog post, you already know I have snow where I live. So, if Mahogany suddenly were able to teleport over, we would certainly NOT stay outside in the snow very long we would mostly have hygge-time inside by the fireplace but…

we chose an outdoor scene however for showcasing the new releases for her and him by Allure Couture. The Lange Sweater Outfit for him comes in your choice of Fatpacks. The complete outfit with 10 texture huds for both the pants and sweater, a Pants Fatpack or a Sweater Fatpack. Boots come only in the complet outfit fatpack. The pants and sweater are fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Legacy, Signature Gianni and Slink bodies. Boots are fitted for Belleza, Signature and Slink. It’s available in the Allure Couture mainstore. For info about the Em Sweater Outfit for her, see Mahogany’s post The First Snow.

Pawrenting

I’m a puppy pappa to two Dachshund girls and when I’m not on Second Life they keep me occupied with walks, grooming, playing, feeding, cuddling… They follow me everywhere and are the most loyal and loving companions you can get. If you didn’t already know, being a puppy parent is a big responsibility and takes a lot of work and time. Don’t ever consider getting a dog for the cuteness value. The little, yes adorable, puppers are going to depend on you being there for them every day for many years. I can go on and on about this, but I’ll stop here and move on to the items I’m supposed to talk about!

The Auster Patio Set & Fireplace by CHEZ MOI is a recent release and is now available at the mainstore and marketplace. Adult or PG version, both the sofa and the chair are full of bento animations. The ottoman contains 10 animations and the fireplace has both single and couples (PG and Adult) animations! Texture changer HUD included for both the patio set and the fireplace.

Both the Hans Sweater by Allure Couture and the Havoc Jeans by L&B I’ve blogged before but it doesn’t hurt to repeat a good thing! Both items are available at their respective mainstores.

Unmistakable

Holding hands with you is like a promise that, if even for a brief moment or a few hours, we don’t have to face the world alone.

Holding hands. A simple act with profound impact. Once you took my hand in yours I knew I never wanted to let go.

Hans fits: Classic L,M,S, Aestheitc, Belleza Jake, Signature Geralt & Gianni, Slink and TMP. Shoes fit: Classic (Unrigged so can be adjusted) Belleza, Signature and Slink.
