I sometimes think the song ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ should really be about Autumn rather than Christmas. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy Christmas AT Christmas I just hate all the build up to it and the stress. Once the day is here I enjoy it, even if it’s a very busy day, or couple of days for me personally.
Halloween I am completely fine with the build up to, though to be fair to halloween, it’s just one small part of the season and not the absolute be-all and end-all that Christmas is. Autumn isn’t just about one day in the same way that the winter months tend to be for a lot of countries. Besides the colours and ‘warmth’ they bring to Autumn are also much nicer.
‘Patch is back!’ hooray!
As most of you know I’m from the UK and we don’t have the same emphasis on Halloween in real life that countries like the US. For many of us the realisation of how much of a big thing it was in the States didn’t happen until we joined SL and saw the grid become awash with a sea of pumpkins and broomsticks at this time of year. I found my absolute favourite pumpkins in the whole of Second Life last year at The Pumpkin Patch by Fancy Decor and I was so happy when Jake told me that the ‘Patch is back!’ hooray! Again, pumpkins really aren’t a big thing in the UK…apart from Starbucks maybe adding a spiced latte to their menu there’s usually very little pumpkin being added to our menus so I had no idea there were so many different varieties, shapes and colours to be found! As you can see not only is a great place to grab some decor for your autumn theme areas but also a very nice little area to snap a pic or two.
About the Stuff:
My little blogger dream came true a couple of weeks ago when I was accepted to blog for Elikatira. I’m wearing the latest release Lia which is available at Shiny Shabby in the full range of [e] colour palettes. What you can’t see in the pic is on the other side it tucks to sweetly behind the ear! It’s adorable. There’s also options in the colour hud to change the hairpin colours so you can mix and match those too.
My dress is from Fame Femme and is available at the latest round of Tres Chic. It comes in 6 earthy tones and in fits for Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara (worn), Slink Hourglass and Physique and 4 standard mesh sizes.
Pose is one of a series of 5 poses released at the Drunk Panda mainstore and as regular readers will know I do love a good mainstore release!
