New Year and Mr. X - New releases by Heart Homes and Jumo @ Sneak Peek

New Year and resolutions... I asked Mr. X if he had any and he scoffed at me because he believes you should continually try to better yourself and be "nice" to people every day not just on New Year's Day.

Sitting around the new Candlelight Dinner Set by Aphrodite at Heart Homes we wondered just how the tradition of New Years Resolutions began.

This table comes with a 5 step menu of options from rezzing plates, lights, hats and even tiara's (just touch the New Year's sign by the champagne) to turning the lights on and off.  And, because it is Aphrodite at Heart Homes, the dinner is delicious and romantic!

As for resolutions, the earliest recorded were traced to the ancient Babylonians that made promises to return stolen objects and pay their debts.  The Romans made promises to Janus, in medieval times knights took a "peacock" vow... and the this tradition has continued through the centuries......So Mr. X what will you New Year's resolution be?  We  want to know.
Since I am in a festive mood, I am wearing Jumo's exclusive cocktail dress called Khanna Outfit in Lavender (it comes in many jewel tone colors.  This dress is brilliantly embellished  with jewels and an applique of flexi plumes that scream Happy New Year!
Khanna comes with a gorgeous diamond necklace and earrings as well as divine High High High heels for slink high feet -- of course!

Sneak Peek is Open! Exclusive by Zibska and Mr. X

Take a SNEAK PEEK  at the list of great designers along with a full preview of what’s in store for you this round that begins Dec. 25 and runs through Jan. 5. Wandering around Sneak Peek, with Mr. X, I could not resist this fanciful dress called Caja by Zibska.


This sheath mini dress, called Caja comes with a lavish feather collar sure to keep you cozy in the coldest times...and the short skirt is sure to heat things up!


Style will matter today, I announce boldly to Mr. X.  And, Caja has a convenient hud that comes with  a choice of nine unique jewel tone colors to choose from making it fun to mix and match.



And, yes, it it's all about the silk. How it feels against your skin in the cold winter air. Remember when you always use to dress in it?  Or how you adored a choice of bold colors? Taking sides?  Remember those nights when you were closer to those friends that sometimes drank too much and said too much (but were always fun)?

I have paired Caja with a new shoe release by Wicca Merlin called Carrie Heels - Winter Edition.  The heels  comes with a handy color changing hud offering 5 shoe colors and a variety of heel and metal accents to choose from.

Casual @ Fresh Styles #12 and Mr. X

"Indecently fun", I whispered to Mr. X as I gather several items from Fresh Styles from Mr. X's warm outstretched hands.  "And, to think after all these years."  Fresh Styles offers high quality fashions and accessories for  25L- to 150L.

N&K made a cute sweater  black and white mini dress called Roll Neck Sleeveless Dress with belt.  The dress has a cowl neckline,  a wide black belt and silver bangles.  The dress also comes with heels in black for high slink feet.


Another find is  by D.A. Tattoo Fashion Style by Bimbetta Carissa.  This cute sweater mini is a simple sheath styled dress with an elegant bow neckline called Elenoir Dress.

Elenoir Dress comes in black red, blue and white.  This soft jersey dress whispers without a breeze... and is intentionally cute.


For a super casual look, I found these fabulous distressed jeans and sweater top by Azure called Dannie.  The sweater comes in a wide variety of colors and can be worn full length or as a midriff.


Perfect for a festive night out, don't miss the red and black cocktail dress by EccentriciXi called Lucy.  The elaborate pattern of the dress reminds me of ribbon unfurling making this festive.  Lucy also comes with matching silver black heels for slink high feet.

Mr. X Lingers with Brilliant by !Lyrical B!zarre

Wonderful. Terrifying.  Possibly clairvoyant. The Snow Queen turns you to ice with a mere glance...and smiles when you cannot move. Oh yes.
Regal in this lavish new gown appropriately named Brilliant by !Lyrical B!zarre, it is available December at Courier Docks. There are only 50 copies of this exclusive and at 50% off!  This is a must have gown because it is perfect for any formal occasion.
Mr. X loves the Elizabethan lace collar and is reminded that the clear eyed Snow Queen knows more than she really wants to and never lets on.  The pearl and ruby head piece is an impeccable addition to this look that is haute with a historic vibe.

The sides of Brilliant are like waves of festive ribbon candy that flow with the cold north wind warming Mr. X and encouraging him to linger longer in the Snow Queens frozen realm.

Winter Silence -- Mr. X and the Ice Queen

Mr. X walked through the gates of her palace, a biting wind followed him through the landscape of velvet white.  She sits on a glittering crystal ice throne surrounded by her faithful white wolves.



The Ice queen, so beautiful to look at. Crystal blue eyes and white hair that shimmers with snowflakes in the setting sun. She glides through her ice world with the ease of a goddess. Effortlessly.  Like breathing.  Like a heartbeat in the dead of winter.



The Ice Queen wears a fabulous white gown of swirling flakes and ice... she is beguiling and beautiful... alluring as sugar icing.... Mr. X does not want to leave this frozen kingdom with moonbeams shining on fresh snow and ice.  They dance and spin snow dusted and regal.

Mr. X Going Formal @ Fresh Styles #12

The holidays, the parties, the sweets, the almost one to many cocktails... tree decorating, cooking making... and best of all merry making with Mr. X!


To get in the holiday mood, I made my way over to Fresh Styles where nothing is over $150 L.  I found a series of gorgeous formal gowns like this one called Winter Wonderland by Impose in Red.


Don't miss the Nordic Nails by ZOZ with their snowflake patterns in 9 colors perfect for the season.


Another find is this white snowflake gown fit for a queen  also by Impose called Winter Wonderland White.  This mesh dress has a delicate snowflake texture and also comes with an elegant fur lined cloak and a hand warmer perfect for those cold winter nights.


I have paired this dress with yet another find at Fresh Styles, the delicate ruby and diamond necklace and ruby snowflake earrings by Tran-Skewed.


Don't miss the gown called Dazzle Me Purple by Aura Blue.  This is a classic mermaid style gown that gives you an hourglass shape and flairs out at the hemline.

If purple is not for you, Aura Blue has made this gown in a red texture and it is appropriately called Dazzle Me Red.  The texture reminds me of peppermint... a favorite schnapps of Mr. X!

I have paired this dress with Nails by ZOZ in a Nordic Pattern that is also available at Fresh Styles.  These nails and toenails come with white, gold or silver tips in 9 winter fresh colors and a easy to use hud.  I am wearing the NEW skin by October 4Seasons called Keiko Blossom with hand drawn plucked eyebrows, heart shaped lips and 5 different types of makeup.  New this week is Keiko in Red.
