Snow Queen of Hogmanay

Happy Hogmanay to one and all, for those that are uninitiated to that term, Hogmanay is the scottish term for new years eve!

Hogmanay ([ˌhɔɡməˈneː] HOG-mə-NAY) is the Scots word for the last day of the year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year (Gregorian calendar) in the Scottish manner. It is normally followed by further celebration on the morning of New Year’s Day (1 January) or, in some cases, 2 January

The origins of Hogmanay are unclear, but may be derived from Norse and Gaelic observances. Customs vary throughout Scotland, and usually include gift-giving and visiting the homes of friends and neighbours, with special attention given to the first-foot, the first guest of the new year.

You can leave your hat on

Listening to music, doing some sim hopping and shopping, I came to the store from DS’ELLES just as Joe Cocker started singing “You can leave your hat on” and it must have been faith, because at that exact moment I walked into a set of poses called “A hat for me”.

A fun posestand that comes with a prop (the hat) in two different kinds, but also you can use the poses without props whatsoever, well I definitely had a wonderful time playing with it, and can see myself using this poseset quite a bit.

Winter Goddess

Looking a this lingerie set from LushishCatz I could not help but wonder “Why is it called Winter Goddess” the Winter Goddess is the face of death as not everything will be renewed and transformed in the spring.

But perhaps the second part explains more why this lingerie set carries this name “The Goddess of winter is carries the seeds of your dreams, to be nurtured through the darkness so it can grow new hoots in the spring.”

A girl can only hope that dancing around in the dark in reveiling lingerie like this does inspire some dreams in people. The set contains of several parts, stockings panties and bra are maitreya applier.

Well no not really, but at least in my mind it is a fun play on words. And even though the outfit I am wearing in this picture is from Sweet Lies that is not what made me use this title…

Back to the 40’s

It might be that is because I have just watched a great show on Netflix that situated in the 1940’s called Manhattan but when I saw the outfit from =Zenith= at Shiny Shabby I just knew I had to have it.

Zenith - The 40's

<History lecture> The shortage of fabric also caused the popularity of the two piece suit know as a Victory or Utility suit.  Women could mix and match skirts, blouses, and jackets for a new outfit everyday. Even after the war the suits remained popular due to its’ comfort and practicality.</History Lecture>.

=Zenith= remains true to this principle, the dress is hud controlled allowing you to select different colours for the top and the dress, so instantly creating different outfits. Ofcourse there are matching shoes and handbags as well (not colour changeable).

Up on the Roof

Don’t we all just love to disappear up onto the roof and let our worries and stresses just blow away with the wind.  Time to contemplate and ponder on life.

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin’ tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go up on the roof (up on the roof)

Ah where to start here, for as long as I have been in the wonderful world we call Second Life, the Huntress family have been amongst my dearest and most loved friends. And it seems that every week I gain a few more nieces and nephews!

So I am quite tickled that one of the younger brats of the family has decided to start making clothes, under the name Huntress Couture. What is it all about? Well in her own words:

Providing the finest hand painted mesh apparel, Huntress Couture allows for custom designs as well as pre-fitted designs. Anything from modern fashion to fantasy whims can be found at Huntress Couture.

In the following picture I am wearing the gown called Renaissance it comes with a colour changing hud, so you truly get nine gowns for the price of one!
