Everywhere around the globe people are preparing for the upcoming Holiday Season. It's been fun to visit different sims and see the many different outlooks on Christmas, winter and all the other good things that come out of the winter months. For some winter means inches of snow, for others like my Australian friends Allyson Dwyer and Kay Weston, they're preparing for their summer. But even though they're preparing for summer, they are creating winter wonderland goodies for all of us to keep in with the spirit of the season. Winter has descended on many states across the US. For me, I live in the Midwest and I'm ready for it to stay away a little bit longer. On Friday, Cedric and I begin the 9 hour trek from Kansas to Wisconsin to pick up my son for his college break. I'm hoping the weather continues to hold for us so the drive will be safe.

When I think of winter, and my youth I think of all the months as a child and we'd be buried in snow, thankfully we haven't had snow like that in years, but one of my favorite childhood memories is the coca cola bears. Remember them? They were so adorable, and I loved those commercials and sometimes they'd make me cry.. I'm a big commercial crier! So when I saw some of the new poses from Something New Poses and Props, the Kissing Panda screamed at me "Buy me buy me buy me." Of course, I had to blog it! It's so beautiful and adorable at the same time. How can that be you say? Well just check it out and you will see what I mean. Ally really created a mini winter wonderland with her Panda Kisses prop.

 The outfit I am wearing is by 2Chez! It's funny how whenever I'm sitting here contemplating what I want to wear for certain blog posts my sponsors will send something either a prop or clothes and I'm like "THAT IS IT! That is WHAT I NEED! The outfit is called Kirsten. This lovely outfit is only 199L it comes with arm warmers, top, skirt AND BOOTS!!! yes BOOTs!!!!! I love it so much. I feel like a sexy little snow bunny!

I bet you're wondering why I'm kissing a bear? Well it's because Cedric was unavailable to pose and this totally adorable pose/prop is new release from Something New Poses and props called Kissing Panda.(And yesssss our lovely Ally knows that the bear is a polar bear and NOT a panda but when you're creating as many wonderful things as she has been for all of us lately she's allowed to make a mistake! And we love her more for it!)

 You can get this great prop at a few different events around the grid, but well just go to her store and go up the stairs I PROMISE you will not be disappointed by her winter wonderland. Also as you head up the stairs, look for a star inside that star is a free gifty (okay so it might cost you 1L but it might also be free, but it's a GREAT prize either way you look at it.) BUT I'm not going to tell you what it is!

~Do you hear what I hear?~

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
do you see what I see
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
do you see what I see
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

There's something about the holidays that makes me excited but sad at the same time. I am more of a pagan spirit then a Christian spirit. I love all the beautiful lights, the snow, and the feelings of good nature that come along with the holidays. The feeling of home, and family coming together. The things I don't like about the holidays is all the commercial hub bub and the pressure to outdo the rest of the family. Well, I simply don't, I can't afford to. I do my best. I don't like the pressure or the stress and most of all this year for some reason more then seasons past I am missing my father more and more. This will be our 6th Christmas without him and while wandering CALAS GALADHON'S 'NOEL' I was reminded even more about the loss of him.

The skin that I am wearing is Tilda by Deluxe Body Factory, I am totally in love with this skin because it's just very natural looking. It has a cute mole and has freckles. I paired it up with my chocolate eyes by IKON and hair by Truth to finish off the look. These are NOT purchased at any events. Tilda is the group gift available to members of DBF through the month of December. There is a 249L join fee, but you get amazing skins, shapes and you can pick up male and female shapes/skins from previous group gifts

My blog is in dedication to my friends, to their families, of holiday memories to those that have passed, to those in our futures and to those in our now. To you: Wewish you joy, happiness and finding peace within your heart. 

He will bring us goodness and light

Today I am wearing a combined outfit from OMG round 10 which is our Christmas Round. I'm continually surprised by the designers and what they come up with. I love this jacket by Stellaone  the Zagobia vest. It's snug fitting, high collar, I feel classy yet casual. And it was super warm while walking through the snow. 

 The pants and boots I am wearing are from Outfit Collection Winter V2#I_RD Style by RD Style, there is actually a really adorable wintery sweater that goes with these pants but I was mixing and matching this morning and liked the feel of these two pieces together. I hope you don't mind.

While walking through the NOEL sim, I was touched by all the details. I stopped at this fence line to pose with these cardinals. The red cardinal was one of my dads favorite birds. We have them all over our house. It's funny, we never collected them before but he'd spend hours watching them from the back window of our old home as they would land our deck. Chasing each other, chasing the squirrels, and dive bombing the horses next door. They were always fun to watch. My father passed away in September and it seemed the week of his passing the Cardinals came out in force to dance about our back deck especially at sunset which is my moms favorite time of day. We see Cardinals and we think that Daddy is checking on us. :) It's also funny, I was trying to think of songs for the holidays and my favorite one is "Do you hear what I hear" Amusing for a non christian, but there ya go.. I'm very weird. I'm eclectic that's what I like to tell people. Plus the song was fitting I think for how I was feeling today taking a walk down memory lane.

Of course NO outfit is complete with out the perfect nail polish. I've chosen La Boheme XMas Lights, now I'll be honest, I don't know where I bought these at. I know it was at a recent event but I sure can't figure out where. I've emailed the very wonderful creator and I'm sure she'll get back to me super soon so when she does I'll tell you where you can get them, BUT in the meantime I KNOW they're for sale on marketplace because I ran there to look because I was almost at my wits end going from event to event searching.. I'm focused sometimes. lol.
Looks available at OMG ROOM:

The poses I am using are by BellePoses, I didn't really give much of a highlight details in my last post and I really wanted to give this lady some special credit. There are 6 poses to this pack. In my previous post: I will always return, I used the lights, this time I chose to just use the poses because they were super sexy. I also loved that they enhanced my hands so that I could show off La Boheme's polish. I'm new to BellePoses and I really enjoyed using her poses so go go go go check out OMG!! before it's gone on December 12th 2014!!!!
