Snow Deer

It's a magical time of year... Not so much fun for the dark and macabre little me as Halloween perhaps, but I still find myself able to get festive and enjoy the holiday spirit. I often find myself forgetting though, that there's a lot more pretty to this time of year than just Christmas related goodies... The magic of winter, with all the snow and sparkles, is as pretty and although I'm not a great fan of snow, a girl cannot help getting excited to play in it sometimes... 
In the gorgeous lands of Tyrania, Rudh wanders through the snowy landscape wrapped in a somewhat festive - deerish look of the day! 
The look I pulled together, is somewhat festive seasonal but could be just a regular Winter outfit as easily. It started with a Decoy Dress, the Miyazzi Dress to be more specific - which is currently available from Uber until December 22nd. The reason it became Deerish, was due to the addition - which seemed to work perfectly with the dress - of the Doe Fawn Hood and Hair.
I felt so pretty, that I couldn't resist a look of the day!

What is she wearing;
Hood & Hair: Doe - Fawn, V2, in Colors (Available until December 31st at The Arcade
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Decoy - Miyazzi Dress (Available until December 22nd at Uber
Pose: FOXCITY - Selfie V2, Pose 5

A little Christmas Chaos

Weekends at this time of year things feel more than a little chaotic than others and so it's hard to focus on things when I need to LOL... 
Take last night for example, I planned on getting my little house all decorated for Christmas. I had all the decorations out ready and then decided while I was doing it that I would start organizing a Spotify play list of Christmas songs. Unfortunately that led to a little bit of crazy chaos... 
It's not my fault, it's the one time of the year you can rock out to the cheesy classics that are played over and over again every year! I was in the midst of rocking out to some cheesy Mariah Carey when suddenly the puppies when mental... One ripping down lights and breaking baubles, the others ripping their way through the gifts that I'd just finished wrapping... 
I didn't care... Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby started playing and I lounged around in my amazing Flannel Separates - the top comes with the ribbon, but the pants and slippers are all available separately from 1313 Mockingbird Lane at Tannenbaum

Heading to see the Jolly Ol' Fat Man!

Christmas is getting closer and closer, blink at this point and you will more than likely miss it, but now is a great time for me to head on a little expedition to visit an old fat man and try to persuade him to switch the list I'm on! I've been Naughty, but in my defense I was just following the example set by the other Gators!
So I set out on my expedition, and it was time to beg forgiveness... 
I approached the North Pole Toy Co, based at the gorgeous winter sim of The Forest 2019, with a little trepidation... I've heard the rumour that naughty kids get turned into coal if they dare to enter the domain of the Fat Christmas man, and I'm not sure I wanted to take that chance?! I mean my parents love me and they'd send me presents surely?! 
I wasn't really able to sneak in unseen though, the Jolly Ol' Mr Claus was sat on the porch as if he was waiting for my arrival!

A Little Help To Sleep Sweet...

It may be Friday night but I'm not really in the partying kinda mood... I feel much more like curling up in my big comfy bed and catching a few sweet dreams... What happens if you cannot sleep though? What happens when you're needing a little help? You call in Miss Sandman of course, a magical being with the help of her sleep fairies that will gently soothe you to sleep... 
The same happened with my adorable little neice - Lily Rose - who found herself waking in the night and needing a visit from Miss Sandman... Luckily the magical spirit was happy to oblige...

Pictures of Mixed Emotions

I'm currently on a little bit of an emotional roller-coaster, and so as well as a pretty picture, this post may end up becoming one of my venting places - somewhere I can unleash my thoughts just as I would if this was my journal. I've always said that my blog is somewhat a diary for me, allowing me to share my thoughts and feelings, and acting as a little bit of a therapy at times. So if you're only interested in the pretties, that's fine, but the credits at the bottom are the details, if not please feel free to read my ramblings... 
This one is actually on the personal side, and more RL than I might normally share, but I have a need to ramble. Judge me if you will, but guidance and support is preferred, and if you have any suggestions you know how to find me! 
Now, you may have heard that I am currently visiting my family in RL... I LOVE being back home, I love being able to rest and recharge, not think about the general day to day things that make normal life so monotonous. Don't get me wrong, I love my life, my work, my addiction to SL, but being able to come back to the place I was born and raised allows me to feel a new fizz of happiness in my head. 
Yet there are things going on here, things that are beyond my control, and I feel powerless. Unhappiness amongst members of my close family. Unhappiness, stubbornness, and a distancing that seems to be pushing my once very close family apart... It brought me to tears because I am powerless to stop it, there seems to be nothing that I can do and even though me being here provides some light relief, the cracks seem to be expanding. 
I'm frustrated with my sister in the fact that she can still happily live at home with my parents, in some ways widening the cracks of the problems, but she's also keeping things together in other ways too. 
In addition to that, after seeing the decline in both my maternal grandparents, it adds to the powerlessness. Living so far away from the people that I love and care for most in the world, makes things seem so difficult. 
Being here has helped me relax, forget the stresses and homesickness of being an expat, and it's even given me moments of sparkling joy, yet I know that soon I will be leaving, heading back to my normality and I will be leaving with those doubts in my mind. The uncertainties that will cause me to think and over think, it's a daunting and scary set of thoughts. I am trying to focus on the positives of my visit home, but departing from it will be harder this time than usual and I'll admit I'm feeling more than a little apprehensive about doing so. How can I cling to these feelings of normality, when things are far from normal and a lot closer to the surface than they ever have been before? How can I go home acting like everything is normal? They always say that the future is bright, but right now my future - and the future of my family in particular - is anything but certain. I feel such a mess of emotions, hiding behind a mask of happiness... I'm happy, healthy and relaxed, but those terrible feelings of anxiety are bubbling below the surface, I must not let them boil over... I must just remember that, on this occasion, there is nothing I can do...
