FLF in gold

FLF in gold (2)

What a fun FLF today. I like it when colors challenge me to play with them, and I admit that I especially love gold. Allegory's mustard plaid vest made me go reaching for all the gold in my inbox, mitigated by a bit of beige. I broke the rule of blogging new things by finding this lovely system layer sweater and pants combination from MichaMi. She no longer has an in-world store, but her things are still on Marketplace. Happy FLF!

...And on to the New Year

New Year's face (1)

I did it! Clicked enough times on the (gift!) Christmas stocking at Schadenfreude that I got this plushie, ~silentsparrow's~ Rosa Deer-ee. Yay Christmas gift! (And paging Jackal Ennui, who has wandered far this warm season -- I have a Christmas box for you, but I didn't want it lost in IM caps!)

Gothmas by Gaslight is still going on, and I'm wearing jewelry and a few outfit bits from it on my avatars -- both outfits were planned around those two neat skirts by Pale Empress. (And uh both avatars are totally me, inexpertly composited together.) Check out the little skeletal hands on my earrings, too!

I think I'm going to wear silver and blue for the rest of the year, just to see in 2014 properly. So, what are you wearing for New Year? Got plans? :D

One last gasp of Christmas

Christmas day

I think my relatives stole my words today, but I have a few notable things to point out. First, the Schadenfreude Christmas stocking is out, and it probably has an awesome reindeer plushie in it (I haven't gotten it yet, but the night is not over). The stocking is an annual tradition, and it wouldn't feel like Christmas without it. I'm wearing these awesome antlers from the stocking, as well as a new Rebel Hope dress. Below is my house during the last gasp of Christmas, including a neat new wall divider from ISD and a wall-hanging fortune thingie from Lilith's Den, both for Horror Haute.

Oh right: Happy holidays, friends! I hope solstice treated you all very well. :D

Meditation room

Stuff and things (2)

I decided that since Gidge and Cajsa have been showing off their lovely Christmas decor, I would too. I'm still rocking my NEVA Captain House from a few C88's ago. I've taken down a lot of the walls because I like open floorplans, and the result has kept me feeling comfortable even though everything inside changes according to whim.

I recently obtained a lot of things from the Paper Moon gacha -- these gorgeous studded wall stars. They look industrial enough to suit my dwelling, and they'll do for my very Buddhist Christmas. The rest of the little room is a combination of office and meditation space. Did you know that I'm Buddhist? Real-life me, that is. I'm half Thai, so I'm kind of Buddhist by default. One of my favorite things from my mother's house is her Buddha room. In Thai houses, half of one room is usually devoted to collected statues of Buddha, alongside little containers to put incense and bowls for offerings. In SL, I try to spend a little time whenever I log in meditating. I find it keeps me grounded.

Also in this room is the well-used desk where I sit to write out every blog post by pencil. It's by Arcana for this round of GENRE, and I thought the spare yet antique style also suited the house. I do love Christmas -- in Thailand, we don't celebrate the birth of Christ part of it so much as the spirit of giving and loving family, and because of this, THANKS for lending us such a nice holiday! If you're curious, the rest of my house decorations are over here.

Hair for her (and him?)

Pretty dress from Schadenfreude

Did you miss me?! I was off in Real Life land, playing "mother of the flower girl" at a family wedding. As nice as it was, being at the wedding reminded me of all the reasons why I eloped. Did my adorable cousin seriously pay for a rose corsage that someone's gonna wear for all of three hours?! Anyway, different strokes.

I returned to a lot of lovely new things, not least of which was a gorgeous outfit from Schadenfreude, skin from Pink Fuel, and new hair from Calico Ingmann. The hair was so neat that my boy avatar insisted on trying it on. "What the hell," my husband said when he walked by. "No." Despite the opinion of Mr. Macho, my boy avatar never minds exhibiting his femme side. And look, a wonderful little Christmas plushie from ~silentsparrow~ too!
