Just A Bit Of Shopping

I just couldn't resist snapping this picture of me doing a bit of Christmas shopping.  From the looks of things, though, I think I need a warm coat--let's add that to Santa's list.  I'm a little behind in my blogging due to the Thanksgiving holiday, but I'm back now with some new jewelry items from ELEMENTAL.  In the photo above and at the bottom of the page, you will see the Sasha Necklace & Earrings.  Sasha has 4 texture changing medallions and 4 sets of stone beads to match.  The medallions are all the same motif, just in different colors.  I really like this burgandy one, which will look great with several of my winter outfits.  There is also a deep blue, a pretty teal, and an earthy brown included in the set--all very warm colors for cold weather.

This week's second new release from ELEMENTAL is the Jehan Necklace & Earrings, a texture changing set with 6 floral medallions and beads in 6 semi-precious stones--turquoise, purple, gold, pink, green, and a lovely periwinkle blue.  I've read that turquoise is going to be big in 2013, so you might want to start collecting some pieces now--for yourself as well as for holiday gift giving.

Here's a slurl to the ELEMENTAL JEWELRY mainshop in second life:

Long Ago & Far Away

That's right--I've acquired yet another new dress from Sn@tch.  Isn't it too cute?  I have a fat pack, so I'll get plenty of mileage out of this one.  And the colors are perfect for the new Caliana Necklace and Earrings, above, from ELEMENTAL JEWELRY.  This is the set in purple, but it changes texture, so it's like a fat pack too!  There are six medallions and six semi-precious stones included, and it can be silver or gold.  The stones include blue, lavender, or peach moonstone, yellow sapphire, green turquoise, and pink rhodochrosite.  I really love vivid colors and geometric designs and this one really fits.

Here's another splash of color--the Rasine Necklace & Earrings in aqua.  This set is the same design as Caliana, but with six floral medallions in shades of yellow, purple, blue, red, aqua, and orange, plus stone and beads in blue chalcedony, turquoise, lavender sugalite, yellow aventurine, orange jasper, and fire agate.  You can find both Caliana and Rasine at ELEMENTAL JEWELRY:

I'm wearing:
Jewelry:  ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--Caliana Necklace & Earrings, Rasine Necklace & Earrings, texture changing.
Hair:  Truth Hair--Enisa in copper.  Purchased full price.
Skin:  Curio--Pout 2, Indulged 1.  Purchased full price.
Dress:  Sn@tch --Long Ago & Far Away dress.  Lucky Board gift.

Let It Snow

It's a bit early for me to be in the "holiday spirit", but it's never too early to go ice skating.  The Holiday Village sim is truly a winter wonderland right now, and the ice skating area is just gorgeous.  Don't worry about skates, they can be found right there at the side of the frozen rink.  There aren't petite skates yet, but that never stopped a fairy did it?  My friend Celeste Twig and I just hopped onto the skating poseballs and took off, weaving past polar bears, penguins, and through a very long ice tunnel.  Don't forget to turn on the holiday music while you skate, and be sure to check out some of the shops for some great gift giving--there is even a petites mall on the sim.

In the top photo, I'm wearing this week's new releases from PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--the Let It Snow Necklace & Earrings and the Snowflake Bead Necklace.  Both are texture changing and can be resized to fit a variety of petite avatars.  The Let It Snow set is the one with the snowflake pendant on a chain and the earrings shown here.  The jewelry can be gold or silver, and there are 6 gem colors from which to choose.  The gem colors are coordinated with the colors of the Snowflake Bead sets, of which there are two.  Each of the Snowflake Bead sets includes the long strand of beads which can be snowflake obsidian or pearls in various colors--white, blue, pink, green, aqua, or violet.  There are snowflakes in the same colors, and the beads also have a matching pair of earrings as well.  There are three sets sold separately.  You can wear them alone, or "add" the beads to the Let It Snow pendant for a layered look as shown here.  And all three sets are on sale this weekend for 50 to 60L each!

Here's a slurl to the PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY mainshop in SL:
