Du Papillon Delights

It was a rather uneventful day for me yesterday now that the Christmas shopping madness is over and done with and for once there seemed to be hardly anything new to go ga-ga over. But then, out of the blue, I received this notice about a shop, Du Papillon (which I'm embarrassed to say I had never heard of till now), and was delighted to find adorable little dresses in pretty colours at very affordable prices over there with quite a few dollarbies and a cute little freebie for group members too. I also decided to try a new skin from Free Speerit for a change...

Farvel, Aleida!

A few days ago, one of SL's most talented designers, Aleida Rhode, sent me this box of clothes, not for review, but for me to blog about the closure of her shop Aleida and to announce a huge store-wide sale of 40% to 60% on everything, including skins, from now to 31st December. Usually I would have been over the moon to receive such gorgeous items, but this was not exactly music to my ears--I mean, Aleida is giving up her shop here in SL, and I'm really going to miss her great craftsmanship, attention to detail and unique yet classy designs which are, by far, almost unparalleled in all of SL (in my opinion, at least). Take a look at some of the items that will be on sale at Aleida:-

Lily gowns (Fly Hair from Tekuteku):

Rudolf gowns (Gloss hair from Tekuteku):

Jonan minidresses (Mala Naturals Jewellery from Mashooka and 037 Hair from White Well):

Five different shades of Gulu Capri with Ray Shirts (in six shades) which were never released (Gingko Hair from Tukinowaguma):

...and there's more at the shop!! So hurry down to Aleida before everything disappears! Remember, last day of sale is 31st December 2009! And with this, may I wish Aleida the very best in all her future endeavours, and may she enjoy a well-deserved break back home in Denmark--you will be greatly missed Aleida!! *hugs & kisses*

Green Movement

I usually don't fancy the colour green much, it reminds me of things which are quite negative--slime, mucous (yuks!), not to mention 'green with envy' *grins*, though I'm starting to appreciate greenery much more even though I've always been a city girl at heart, thanks to my dear Erwin who loves nature and lots (and I mean lots) of thick, lush vegetation (gulps)!! And thanks to these generous designers, I now have quite a few lovely green items in my wardrobe too:-

Dress: Audrey from Prism (comes with matching gloves and two top options)--Christmas gift
Shoes: Bows from Heart & Sole--MM gift
Hair: Zita from Magika--10L
Jewellery: Sorcerous Diamond set from Jewelry by Zuri Rayna--Christmas gift

Gown: from Glitterati--December 2009 gift
Jewellery: Kiss of Camelot Olive Sapphire from J and W--10L special price
Hair: W's Hair 001 Sepia from Umi Usagi

Dress: Wink Spearmint from Ali Couture--10L (Winks Hunt)
Shoes: Fabgreen Lace Trim Pumps from !SSUS!--gift
Hair: Lulu from Magika
Pose: Kiss the Candy (includes candy cane) from A.D.D. Andel!--group gift

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
