She carried winter with her, wearing it like a mantle, bearing down heavily on her shoulders. But it was a burden she knew well, and she carried it with grace. Queens do not complain about the weight of their crown upon their head nor the burden of law and scepter which they grasp in delicate fingers. Instead, they carry them and wrap the weight around them like a cloak to keep them warm. And, strange as it may seem, the winter did keep her warm. No, it did not feel warm on her cool skin, but it was a comfortable cloak, a burden with which she was very familiar.
Hello, lil bloglings! A new round of We Love Role-play opened last week, in case you’ve forgotten, I’m here to remind you. At this round E.V.E released this beautiful ice sphere. It is perfect for wintry scenes, like the one above. It is modify, so you can change the level of glow on it and resize it to fit your needs. It is really beautiful. While you’re there, EMO-tions has these beautiful eye crystals on discount.
While you’re out and about searching for beautiful wintry items pop over to Winter Solstice. It is a fantasy event celebrating the beauty of winter. It is also where I picked up this very elegant and intricate neck piece by Purple Moon.
And since you’re already out shopping, you might as well stop by Cosmopolitan this round and pick up this great fur boa and by Collabor88 which just opened for this gorgeous dress by Zaara. It comes in a variety of colors to suit your needs, but this icy blue was perfect for my ice queen.

If you actually caught me in world, you might be surprised to see what I wear on a regular basis. Though you may find me as a fairy or other fantastical creature, you are more likely to find me in lingerie. Corsets are a secret love of mine, and I impulse buy them like cheap chocolate at the supermarket counter. Luckily, corsets make me look prettier than chocolate, bloggettes. Another favorite of mine is pairing panties with suit jackets/blazers. I find the juxtaposition of business with the intimacy of panties and garters intriguing. So, when No. 7 sent me this adorable moustache lipstick, I had a clear vision for showing off a side of me on this blog that I often neglect.
No. 7 sent me a few things for Fantasy Faire, all of which are delightful, but this lipstick really struck a chord with me. I like the play on gender while still maintaining femininity. Not only is it adorable, it is part of the Fantasy Faire Hunt and is, therefore, free (with the purchase of the hunt HUD). Hunt information can be found here. This lipstick comes as an installer for the TMP mesh heads and as an applier for the Lelutka mesh heads. No tattoo layer is included for system heads.

Bloggettes! Isn’t this new dress from Zaara just absolutely gorgeous?! It is so perfectly pastel and pretty. And the sheer overlay is so nicely executed. Also, a good friend of mine, Orion made me a lovely shape to go with my Tokyo Girl skin. Isn’t is just lovely? Here’s another pice of eye candy:

Bloglings! More Pose Fair goodies coming to you as a collaboration between Exposeur and Handverk. Exposeur made these poses and Handverk made the parasols to go with the poses (each sold separately) and they are amazing.
The pack of umbrellas come with 5 pastel colored umbrellas to coordinate with the female poses, 1 black umbrella for the couples pose, and a plaid umbrella for the male poses.
Ilaya also released a couples pose called Bonnie and Clyde, which includes the gun attachment. My Bonnie and Clyde are very posh because I was a bit lazy and didn’t feel like changing clothes again. 🙂

Every time I see an article of clothing in this tealy/squaish/sea-greenish color, I have to pick it up. I don’t know why. I seem to love it. I never really recognized it before as my favorite color, but as my SL closet bursts with these shades, I guess I’ll just have to admit it. 🙂
I love the muted feel of this outfit, like piles of old sepia pictures. Those pictures were always reminiscent of something distant and unattainable, times forgotten (and maybe times best left forgotten).
