Winter Kiss at Luanes Winter World

After that long ride on the Polar Express, it was time to cuddle and kiss and most of all stay warm. Amazing that in Second Life you can stay warm even without a coat.

And he kissed her on a bench and kept her warm,
for she knew he would do no harm.
Her heart pounding full of joy
for this handsome gentle boy.
Was this the day he would ask
or was he wearing a mask?
---nope, not today!

If you want to come and visit this magical place, it is highly recommended. Luanes Winter World

Mopire Tokyo Subway Station

Are you sure it is the right train? I do not see any other people waiting for the "Polar Express"!
We waited in the eerie halls of the train station/subway to catch the midnight line to the magical winter wonderland.

All Greg wanted was his beloved "Honeybun" and he was not referring to me this time. He was highly disappointed because this kiosk did not have any but lucky for me they had some Vegicrisps. Yeah!!!
Ok, and we are ready to take the journey to go and escape to the winter wonderland...details on that in the next blog entry.

Best Wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season...

 The gift of love,
the gift of peace
The gift of happiness...
May these are yours
this Holiday Season!!!




Anjelikka and Greg

So I asked Greg to take some pictures with me for our holiday card. I told him to get dressed in something nice. So here is the result. Not sure why he has the Grinch he named Willie.


We did have a lot of fun taking the pictures even if Willie kept staring at me. Creepy thing.

Are you naughty or nice?

"Tis the season of Christmas and all through the 'hood, Little boys and girls wonder, "Oh crap, was I good?" Were you naughty or nice, wanna learn which it is? Then enough with your questions -- just take this fun quiz. Oh, never you fear, there's a naughty quiz here, To test if you're nice, and to fill you with cheer. Find out with this quiz, did your deeds suffice? What will Santa write down, are you NAUGHTY or NICE?"

50% Nice 50% Naughty

I need to work on this I guess so I can be 100% Nice next year. I am sure Santa still brings me something for the 50%? Won't he?
Being nice has its benefits for sure. I know Greg is nice, he always looks for the best in all people. That is a good quality to have I think. I am more critical of others at times when I feel down. So I got a little work to do to be better.
But being a little naughty (winks) does not hurt either if you know what I mean.

Men are simple creatures

Who wouldn't want a man at their feet? Of course, we do. Men are simple creatures.
Here are some simple rules. Make him feel like the man. There is no need for long-planned discussions. For the most part, he may only hear about 50% of it. So, if you gonna plan, make sure he hears the important stuff. If you want something, then ask him never demand and important here is also the timing. Do not ask him when he is watching football. He will not hear anything.

Remember to tell him he is the best because he is. Tell him! Don’t ask anyone to do what you’re not willing to do.

You gotta cook for him...cook, bake...do it even if you do not like meat. Grill him that steak. He will thank you later and it all pays off. Leave all the nagging behind. Number one reason men leave women is that they nag over things a hundred times.

Be thankful, always for the things he gives and says. It is very simple. I think kindness right in the beginning will go along way. Treat with kindness if you want kindness back...same goes for love.
And then SMILE...always kiss and smile when you part. Never be angry, it gives you wrinkles...instead be his angel :)

And speaking of angels, please check out my new video called:

Randy's Donuts

If you are form Southern California you most definitely know Randy's Donuts. Even if you are not from here you will recognize this famous icon from many movies and commercials. Randy’s was built-in 1953 (and first appears in the 1954 edition phone book) as the second location of the now-defunct Big Donut Drive-In chain by Russell C. Wendell, a donut machine salesman. The building was featured in the films:
Earth Girls Are Easy, Mars Attacks!, The Golden Child, Into the Night, Coming to America, Stripped to Kill, Problem Child 2, Breathless, Californication, California Girls, 2012, Iron Man 2, Volcano, “Crocodile Dundee in L.A., and Love Letters. by Josh

I found the very same and famous place in Second Life. I was undercover you know, doing a story when then all of a sudden it hit me, I need a donut.



"One of the staples of LA that is located right next to LAX is Randy’s Donuts. Randy’s Donuts has long been featured in movies and become a go to place for anyone visiting the area, not to mention locals that have grown accustomed to their well crafted donuts. At one minute off the freeway it is a well trafficked location and for good reason, Randy’s Donuts are great." by Josh

Want to go and travel to the Randy's donuts here in Second Life? Here is a taxi to it: RANDY's DONUTS SL

What to wear in winter?

I believe the layered look is still in this year. It has been "in" for a long time. Not only does it look great it is also practical.

There is no need to go out and buy anything new either, you can save your Linden dollars for bigger and better things unless you are one of the girls who need to shop on a daily basis and can never be seen in the same outfit twice. This is what I am wearing and it is old stuff but hey still good right?

Maitreya Mesh Body - Lara V4.1 
Top: GizzA - Christmas Jacket with Cardigan 
Pants: The Secret Store - Bonnie Capri Pants - Black Polka 
Boots: {Livalle} Hax - Combat Boots  

Hair: D!va" Hair Ruri"

The boots are great for those slushy kinda snow surfaces.



The leggings are perfect for all the bending you do plus the other benefit is after all those Winter holidays your mesh might expand a little, no need to worry about it in the stretchable material of leggings.






































I am thinking of what to buy for Christmas? Should it be for me or the ones that are dear to me? Oh yes, of course, I am not gonna be selfish. Ok, time to check into my room now. See you soon :) and have a good night! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Naughty or nice? Some Christmas traditions.

I was checking this list over twice and I did not see my name on it. I really do not understand at all. I was a good girl. Then again this is a very creep Santa, I think he was checking me out and Mrs. Claus would not be pleased.


I decided to read up about the man and found out many different customs around him.


In 1863 He was given the name Santa Claus and bore the red suit, pipe, and his reindeer and sleigh.
Now Christmas celebrations vary greatly between regions of the United States, because of the variety of nationalities which have settled in it.

I love the one where it said: In California, Santa Claus sweeps in on a surfboard. Really? I would swear I would know about this, but then again I do not live at the beach. 

Is this Piernik? (Honey Cake)
In Poland, beautifully lit Christmas trees are placed in all public areas, outside churches and in homes. Traditionally the trees are decorated with shiny apples, gift walnuts, beautifully wrapped chocolate shapes and many homemade decorations and candles. On the top of the tree is a star or a glittering top piece. In many homes, sparklers are hung on the branches of the trees giving it a magical air. Sometimes the trees are left standing until February 2nd, the feast day of St Mary of the Candle of Lightning.

Can you imagine this in the USA? Here the Christmas decoration goes off with the Christmas wrappings you throw out on the next day. Seriously, we rush things way too fast.

In parts of Germany, people believe that the Christ Child sends a messenger on Christmas Eve. He appears as an angel in a white robe and crown, bearing gifts. The angel is called Christkind. There is also a Christmas Eve figure called Weihnachtsmann or Christmas Man, he looks like Santa Claus and also brings gifts.

I knew the idea was stolen from somewhere...you better be good now so you can be on the list.

Winter

Winter is the coldest season of the year in polar and temperate climates (winter does not occur in tropical climates). It occurs after autumn and before spring in each year. Winter is caused by the axis of the Earth in that hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun. Different cultures define different dates as the start of winter, and some use a definition based on weather.

I went to a few winter locations in second life to take some photographs for the upcoming the 3rd Annual Winter Showcase & Winter Art show will take place December 1 to 10, 2017! This event will include shopping, art, music, hunting, fundraising, & more!

Trains are kinda fun in the snow. Reminds me of the recent movie coming up called " Murder on the Orient Express". Read more about the event at the website here: Team Diabetes Second Life 
Stay warm out there :)

It's all about the spinach! I yam what I yam and tha's all what I yam.

Greg and Anjelikka ( in case you are wondering)
Here we are ready to go out as Popeye and Olive. Here is a true fact about those two ( I mean the real ones not me and Greg) and no Bluto either.

"In the old 1930s Fleischer Studios Popeye theatrical shorts, Jack Mercer was the voice of Popeye and Margie Hines the voice of Olive Oyl. They lived out the romance of the characters they played by getting married in 1939. The couple had spinach for their wedding breakfast."

at the Willows
Now isn't that cute? They had a true romance going. "That's all I can stands, cuz I can't stands n'more!"

NORTH

"Inspired by the raw and serene Scandinavian and Scottish northern landscapes, nature, ocean, and decrepit old buildings come together to make up the outside part of North. The interior spaces are intentionally left more playful and cluttered in order to create a contrast."

Dress warmly when you come here because Winter has covered the land with snow.

It is a fun place to walk around in and meet some friends, even if they are the forest kind.


Enjoy this video about the sim North.
