Piggies for Relaxing

Last night I had the time of my life... I was out in RL at a concert... Live Music is definitely one of my biggest healers and I feel so much better for having a chance to have enjoyed some last night! For those of you that are interested it was my favourites, Five Finger Death Punch, I fought my way close to the front and had an amazing time, but today WOW, today I'm paying for it... I can barely talk and walking... Forget about it LOL... 
So today, even in SL, I feel like taking it very very easy... Nothing too crazy, just a day in my jammies to chillax!
I have the perfect spot in my little home that was just crying out for me to go curl up in with a good book. The book in this case just happens to be about Haunted Houseplants LOL... Though it is the chair that needed to curled up in, and funnily enough Cauldrons are actually a lot more comfortable than they look! This Cauldron Chair, comes pre-comfortised - with snuggly cushions and blankets - from Candle & Cauldron, and there are lots of different textures for the cushions and blankets, to make sure that it fits well in any discerning witches home. 
Just while I'm thinking about it though, I DEFINITELY need to give more than a little mention to my awesome Jammies... The top is an older cropped sweater I bought ages ago from Vinyl, but it's the Pants I want you to really really look at! These are some of the new Novelty Flannel Jammies from Petite Mort for The Frozen Fair, and OH MY GOSH it was so hard to choose which one's I wanted to wear! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Makena (Past Group Gift)
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Vinyl - Daya Cropped Sweater 
Pants: Petite Mort - Novelty Flannel Jammies in Piggies (Available until December 28th at The Frozen Fair

A BVN Secret Santa Gift for Lanna Greenhoo

As someone who tries to be a part of the active SL Blogger community, I've always enjoyed being within the many blogger groups that allow members to work together, sharing ideas and tricks, and although I'm not someone well known or widely followed, blogging for me is a passion, a release and a chance to clear my head at times. Even on the worst day, I can sit down and write some random ramblings and allow my brain a chance to mellow out, and that for me is important. 
So this year I saw that the Blogger & Vlogger Network of SL, were hosting a Secret Santa, of sorts, I knew I had to apply... I waited patiently to see who would be my Santa, and more importantly who I would get in return so that as a gift I could find a way to give them a little promotion, and perhaps a bit of a smile too... 
Today, I am able to share with you the details of my Santa Giftee... Today, this post is for you, Lanna Greenhoo... 
How to start though... I guess, by doing what anyone would... Time for a little look at Lanna and her blog... 
Lanna's blog - It's Me Lanna - is so professional that it's something definitely fit for the fashion world. Unlike my messy ramblings and journal style, Lanna has everything clear, concise and well organised. It's no wonder that she has a great collection of sponsors and event coverage under her fashionable belt. Each of her posts includes a list with URLs for locations to get things, and what's really awesome about these lists is that they clearly show who  made each item, as well as names and locations of events where they are available. 
Yet I think that my favourite thing about Lanna's blog, has to be her pictures - which makes sense since they are the most important part of any blog to draw the eye and catch the attention. Her pictures that seem to be where we have a few things in common... 
Lanna - like myself - seems to be fairly eclectic in her style with pictures ranging from girlie prettiness to magically dark with everything in between for good measure. She has a varied taste it seems, and it is clear that she loves to play around with her looks, so that the end result of each picture is a beautiful little work of art. 
I know it's a little cheeky, and I hope she won't be mad at me but I compiled a few of her creations into a little collage just to give everyone out there a taste of Lanna's creativity... 
Though I thoroughly recommend taking some time to look at both her blog - It's Me Lanna - and her Flickr Stream - Lanna Greenhoo - to see for yourself. The pictures are MUCH MUCH MUCH better on a bigger screen than they appear in these little boxes, meant for intrigue! 

To Lanna, I just want to reach out and say, thank you for taking the time to create all these wonderful images. I was following you already on Flickr but I will be watching for more beautiful things from you going forward! Keep up the awesome work and don't ever stop believing in the magic, because you lady, make magic!! I hope, even if it's just for a moment, I was able to give you a smile, and I want to wish you a very Happy Holidays! Love and Hugs, from your BVN Secret Santa, Rudh xxx

Tribal Warrior Princesses Pet

OK Christmas overload, I need to step back for a minute and do something totally different. Unlike Halloween I find that sometimes Christmas gets to be a little too much for me, so as much as this year feels like a much more special year than some in the past have, I find myself suffering with an overload. 
SO on December 4th, we had a special party at the Gators... One of our members Max - or more affectionately as he's know MaxiPad - celebrated his birthday. We threw him a themed party, that was a little tribal in style, since he lives in Arizona and well, it's a desert and he teases us Brits for being pasty!!! 
This ultimately gave me another perfect excuse to play dress up... This time, I was a warrior princess!!! 
Princess status well because I wanted it LOL... Move over Moana!! There's a new Tribal Princess in town!! 
Her Skull headdress - that is part of the Truth Arwen Hair - and Paradise Collar Necklace - from Remarkable Oblivion - show her rank, while her staff and leg weapon give credence to her warrior status, but it is her Peacock companion that marks her out as special - thanks to Jian's beautiful pets! Peacocks are often regarded as birds of Royalty, they are seen as signs of guidance, protection and spirituality, and well... They are also just gorgeous to look at too!! 
She waits in the shadows at the Mysts of Eyr, watching, soon her people will attack... Soon... 

What is she wearing;
Head Accessory & Hair: Truth - Arwen in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Face & Body Tattoo: Nightmare - Draconian Scales

Necklace: Remarkable Oblivion - Paradise Collar RARE 
Top: Emberotic's Fashion Design - 139 Wild Hunt Camisk

Love Potion #9

There are periods of the year that are supposed to be the most magical if you look at any cultural history. Christmas is now very much tired up with the Pagan holiday of the Mid-Winter and in fact, if you look at many of our modern Christmas traditions, you will realise that they came from Pagan festivities. It is definitely a time of magic however, and that magic may be used for less than good... 
In a dark little shop in the Ironwood Hills, a little witch hides away brewing a Love Potion after being jilted just before the Christmas festivities began... 
Her Sad Tears - thanks to an applier from Nightmare which can be seen more clearly in the attached close ups I've included below and which is the new release from Nightmare at the main store - are adding to the Love Potion #9 - a pose from elephante poses - that she found in one of her Grandmother's old books... 
She was dressed for a party in a Sugarplum Oubliette dress of soft lilac lace, purchased very recently at the Winter's Hollow, and had even remembered her special Dae Glasses, to make her eyes sparkle thanks to the Zombie Suicide, but it seems like this pretty outfit will never make it to the party... 
Unless Grandma's spell works?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ginevra (Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tears: Nightmare - Sad Tears Set 
Glasses: Zombie Suicide - Dae Glasses (Available until December 31st at The Darkness
Necklace: {PSYCHO:Byts} - Bell Choker 
Dress: Oubliette - Sugarplum Dress in Lilac (Available until December 28th at Winter's Hollow
Pose & Prop: elephante poses - Love Potion #9

North Pole Mugshot!

One last one to show a nod in the direction of someone who hurt me and mine recently... Santa she threw the first stone, and I may have gotten caught ready to throw one, but as soon as his back is turned, this stone filled snow ball will be hurled at someone's face, without the warning of "think fast!" I'm lined up and ready... I'm already on the naughty list lol, what have I got to lose... 
So standing at the grotto, for a mugshot was not really on my to-do list, especially this close to Christmas when I'm trying so hard to make it over to the nice list, but sometimes people give you a damn good reason... They know who I'm talking about, they are the target for my next stone filled snowball LOL... Not mentioning names, that would get me into even more trouble with Santa!! 
Though all of this picture came about because {NANTRA} made this awesome gacha collection filled with Christmas Criminals Poses... You can get into trouble for all kinds of things this year... Spiking the milk for Santa, Carolling off key, and even Being a Ho Ho Ho - luckily I wasn't caught for that one LOL... Yet sometimes a girl can't help but throw snowballs full of stones!! Each pose is Bento animated, and contains the backdrop, and sign, as well as some others having extra props, and you can join in the Christmas Criminal Festivities thanks to Nantra at this round of The Liaison Collaborative
To the background I added some of these amazing looking natural style trees. They are Yule Trees from Candle & Cauldron. These trees come in a few different colours, but each are decorated with ribbons, crystals and fruits and I LOVE the fact that they feel so natural... Much more of a traditional Christmas tree rather than the overly tinsel stuffed kind. 
Now just to wait till Santa's back is turned?!

Kookie Red Shoes

Unlike the run up to Halloween, I find myself having a bit of a Christmas overkill at the moment. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Christmas, but it's every where and it's coming VERY VERY fast, and I guess well I'm much more of a Halloween person than a Christmas one... So I find myself needing to stop thinking about Christmas for a while, so that I can focus on other things... 
Today is one of those days, the Gators MC are setting up for their Winter Christmas formal this weekend, so everything there is Christmas all the time, but right now I NEED to do something weird and kookie for my own mental health lol... 
I bought a pair of shoes, something in the style that I'd never normally even look at, and in a colour I down own a lot of shoes in, and my first thought was "why did I do that?" Then I looked at them a little more closely, an d soon the outfit just fell into place. It was nothing new besides the NX-Nardcotix shoes, just a cute dress from LiViD with some polka dot tights from The Secret Store and a hat - and hairstyle - from Truth.  
It was however the location at Mystical Fae Forest in combination with this Fame Monster Pose - from {NANTRA} - that brought this, what could be a called a Look-of-the-Day to life! 

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: TRUTH - Asuka in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Lipstick: Red Apple - Mate Red Lipstick 
Outfit: LiViD - Coven Uniform in Thursday 
Tights: The Secret Store - Polka Tights in Black

Santa's Gift for a VERY Good Boy

Right... The fat man is coming in less than a few weeks now - and no I'm not referring to anything kink, although this post seems a little opposite to that idea - and I'm guessing that by now it's a little too late to start being sweet and innocent so that Santa puts me on the right list, BUT I had a brainwave of a picture idea and well... I couldn't get my little camera working fast enough... 
Everyone that's been good deserves to be on Santa's Nice List, and that includes those that have been Nice even when they've been being very Naughty... I got my hands on something that for some reason seemed like the perfect Christmas Decoration for someone that liked to be very naughty, and wouldn't you know... Even a naughty Dom gets a special gift under the Christmas Tree at this time of year! 
My mind goes to interesting places sometimes when I start planning an idea for a photo... Today's post is obviously one of those times... 
I saw this awesome Devi Tree BDSM Play Toy a while ago at Fapple, and while I was wondering what to do with it a crazy idea popped into my head. Why not decorate it with the gorgeous new baubles that you can hunt for at Apple Fall and make it into the perfect Christmas Tree for any Nice List Dom! It was perfect, and Santa even left a nicely bound and gagged present, wrapped in ribbon - thanks to Violetility and Caverna Obscura - hanging from it's branches... Someone's been a very good boy this year it seems... 
Though judging by her bruises, and that slightly sticky looking candy cane on the floor, it seems like someone else had some fun before he popped back up the chimney too... Must have gotten a little rough, there's a broken bauble on the floor down there!! 
All I can hope now though is that this has gotten me on the Nice List, I mean I held still and was a good girl wasn't I?!
