Kittens love Champagne

This weekend was a special holiday in Holland - the holiday of Sinterklaas - and I know I mentioned this about a few hundred times now but MY PARENTS WERE HERE!!! I had such a lovely time with my parents and it felt so good having them around, although now I feel a bit lost as they have gone back to the UK and left me behind. 
Now as great as it always is having them here, it's a little bit frenetic, things go crazy and there is little peace in the house LOL... Today I am taking things easy, going to pamper myself and have a little luxury... 
Rudh likes a little luxury... 
A burlesque dancer she is not, but all girls like to feel a little luxurious at times right?! 
Today that luxury comes in the form of kitty burlesque Rudh... A kitten outfit from the great minds behind Reign - the catsuit and the socks - and Besom - the hair complete with a kittenish mask. 
Hiding in the damask curtains - as kittens have a tendency to do - this little burlesque kitten dances in the candlelight, enjoying the luxury of Champagne and Macaroons decorated with {anc} pearls! 

What is she wearing;
Hair & Mask: Besom - Glam Kitten in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Bodysuit & Tail: REIGN - Glam Claws Collection

Santa's Not Coming!

If you were ever a bad kid you may have been told that Santa would not come to visit. It was a threat that my parents used to make fairly often when we were little around this time of year, but actually 9 times out of 10 it was a threat that dad assures me worked pretty well... In Holland that threat can be doubled - in fact I know that some of my friends with kids love having a double weapon like this in their arsenal - because this weekend is Sinterklaas. Tomorrow, Monday 5th, is a celebration a little like Christmas. Sinterklaas may not come to visit in the same way that Santa will stay away... 
It's all very distressing for a little kid LOL... 
Luckily for me I am not a kid, but I will be welcoming my British parents over for a visit so that they can experience a Dutch Holiday like this one. It will be all about food and family and maybe if they are lucky there will be a little gift involved too! 
Yet in SL there won't be any gifts given today... So poor little Rudh can sit beside her Cardboard Fireplace - a brilliant creation from Lewd - that seems to be the only kind of fireplace that would actually be safe in the tree house! Although I get the feeling that I am being watched... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Sugar in 02 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Shirt: Addams - Natalia BoyFriend Shirt in Scottish Black 
Prop & Pose: Lewd - Cardboard Christmas in Flames Version (Available until December 16th at Suicide Dollz

The Wolfie Chooses A Tree

Today is December 1st, and that means we only have 25 days until the return of the Fat Man in his red suit! It's now time to start thinking about presents - although I've done most of my RL shopping anyway - planning dinner menus and decorating our homes for the festive event. 
Even in the deep dark woods, the big bad wolf is getting things ready... He's out there picking his tree, planning on decorating his cave to lure in Red Riding Hood! Little does he know that she's already planning a Christmas Holiday prank on him of her own making hehe... 
The Big Bad Wolf in the photo would not want me to ruin his reputation, but he's more like a puppy really... Cute and snuggly, and the perfect warm lap to sit on when things are a little cold! No names will be revealed to protect his Big Bad image, not here at least LOL... 
I used a pose from Come Soon Poses for this picture - the pose is available until tomorrow at Lost & Found - and I am sure it will be moved to the mainstore later on. As per usual this pose comes with a full scene and the mug prop to allow the photographers out there to bring their photos to life - I've edited things a little otherwise I would never have fitted with the giant wolf but I will attach the original store ad to the bottom of my post so that you can see it properly. 
I cannot comment on what the Wolf is wearing, though if you ask I will find out for you, but as for me, the dress is AWESOME! This is something older that I re-found while I was sorting my inventory recently and it simply HAD to be used somewhere! It's an old dress - made in Mesh - by a store called Sheep Door, now I know they still exist but I haven't found the dress so you may need to do some investigating!
I wonder how she will surprise the Big Bad Wolf... Maybe I will share with you the rest of the epic story later LOL... 
What is she wearing; 
Hair: Magika - Curious in 02 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: [Sheep Door] - Xmas Tree Dress 
Boots: *RibboN* - Sheepskin Boots (No Longer Available!) 
Pose: Come Soon - Cocoa (Available until December 2nd at Lost & Found
Pet: JIAN - Raccoon Stump

Even the best adventurers love a good bedtime story...

It's 5.30PM in Holland and I am already thinking about the time I can curl up in bed and go to sleep! I love getting into my bed and stretching out, I always have what some people call a "Bedgasm" - a feeling of euphoria experienced when climbing into bed at the end of a very long day - although it doesn't have to be a long day in my case LOL... 
When I was little I always loved a good bedtime story. My parents read me things like Tolkien and C.S.Lewis from a young age, and I couldn't get enough of the amazing stories of fantasy folk. I'd curl up with my bed full of plushies and listen to the stories, so when I saw something made by one of my favourite designers it took me straight back to my childhood, and my dreams of magical adventures... 
The new book and plushie set called The Velveteen Rabbit is a special Tannenbaum release from Lost Junction. It's a lovely gift for anyone this Christmas. 
So when the Adventurer in me puts her maps and compass aside, and curls up under a blanket with her new book bunny! 

What is in the Photo;
Rabbit & Book: Lost Junction - The Velveteen Rabbit (Available until December 25th at Tannenbaum

She does more than Cheer

I love creating characters for myself and have many to choose from. They vary in style and each makes me smile, filling a role when I need it. You will know the Dead Doll me, may know the Demonic and Kawaii mes, and I'm sure you've met the side of me that is coming out to play today... The Dirty Girl me! This one is NOT very PG, she's a bit of a bad girl and when she is allowed out she's a lot of fun too...
I was sent a lovely gift from a friend that she managed to turn into the perfect uniform for her dirty fantasies!
The Bodysuit - which was the innocent gift - as a Tentacio "Let's Dance" Bodysuit from the gacha at Kustom9. Now for some reason, and don't ask me how, this innocent and rather cute looking bodysuit developed a life of it's own and became the outfit worn by a very bad cheerleader at Deep Valley High School. Just for the record the school - and the random stranger that wandered into the sports hall whilst I was working on this picture - are not affiliated with my dirty cheerleader look, but the school itself is an AMAZING location for Roleplay and as a photo backdrop - just remember to join the group's guest role!
This cheerleader helps her own sports team to win, by distracting the boys on the opposition team. Her Pompoms - from Reign and Besom's NOSEBLEED Gacha collection - are just decoys, her real  role on the Cheer Squad is as a distraction. The cigarettes are also a cover, this little cheerleader will do more than smoke behind the bike sheds, there are hints of what she will do by the smear on her glasses and her slightly ruined lipstick... BUT HEY HO anything for the boys on her team to win right?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: BESOM - NoseBleeds in Rumour RARE 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Glasses: ellemeno - Dirty Glasses in Black
Spots: Mad' - Acne Face
Lipstick: Izzie's - Smeared Lipstick Applier
Outfit: *Tentacio* - Let's Dance Gacha Item in Body grey RARE
Armband: DirtyLand - Cigarettes Armband
Pose: Signature Poses - Those Savage Kicks

Death's Pretty Pet

The week has officially started, and right now it's Monday Morning but already it feels like it should be bedtime! This time next week I will be enjoying a lovely day off, as my parents are coming from the UK to visit for Sinterklaas - the Dutch Holiday - but that is a whole week away yet and right now I am stuck doing RL things. Work for example, such a rude four letter word!
I feel like doing something a little dark today, yesterday was too cute and I need a little dark and demonic feeling at the moment... Luckily that demonic side of me is ready to come out to play - one of the many sides of my imagination - so let's unleash a little darkness shall we?!
The entire reason the demonic side of me got all excited recently was a dress released by the store Meva. At the recent round of Whimsical - which runs until December 3rd - Meva unleashed their Ariola Dress collection onto SL, and my little demoness was screaming like a teenage fangirl at boyband concert. A selection of colours - mostly dark although there are colours available in the form of the dip-dyed versions - that strap over your torso and end in a very highly slit mini skirt!
Now she lingers in the dark by the cemetary - thanks to a photo location at WHOLE WHEAT - and waits for her Demonic Master to return home!

What is she wearing;
Horns: Tabou - Beyond Life Horns in Black
Hair: Magika - Empty Gold in 02
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Wound: CURELESS - Curse of Cain
Eyes: Suicidal Unborn!- Phantom Eyes V.2
Blood: ARISE - Blood Lip in Tone 3
Dress: Meva - Ariola Dress in Black (Available until December 3rd at Whimsical)
Pose: Signature Pose - It hurts

Sunday's Great Brocante Bake Off

When I was little, Sundays were the days that used to be for making cakes. We were never the kind of family that did it all that often, but at least once a month Mum would bake something. She used to complain about having to do it, but now that I'm older she says she actually enjoyed it just because it kept my sister and I quiet for a while! Now though, Sundays are actually more about chillaxing, watching a bit of TV perhaps and maybe if I'm lucky eating a bit of cake LOL... Now days the only "baking" that goes on in our family home, is when mum sits with a cup of tea to watch The Great British Bake Off... 
The reason that I am rambling on about this is because one of the most anticipated events of a 3 month cycle is coming... The Arcade starts again on December 1st, and brocante - the great teamwork store of Wavie Haller and Tegan Serin - has created a set of goodies they have called "The Great Brocante Baking Competition"!
In this amazing set by brocante you will be able to get your hands on ALL things British Bake Off, including the tools you need to bake, the finished products, the location to bake in AND this cute dress and apron!! Yes that's right, furniture geniuses now making clothing too!!! 
Remember though please, although I've included a link to The Arcade - it's common knowledge where it is, so no real surprises there - the event doesn't actually open until December 1st. You will have to wait to get your bake on... I just couldn't wait as that's what Sundays are for hehe...
