There are years when I have had to force the Holiday Spirit feeling.   Not so this year.  In fact it´s quite the contrary.  The spirit of the Holidays has descended upon us openly and almost exhuberantly.

Perhaps you will say, because winter has arrived quite early,  but this is not the case in the southern hemisphere where we are awaiting the beginning of our Summer and yet we can still feel it too.



One of the things that will be a welcome change for my family this year is that we have decided that although all children will be gifted, each of the adults will only gift one person. This means we get to embody the meaning of the Holiday season away from any sort of commercial and social pressure or meaningless and senseless expenditure.


It will certainly make our Holidays a lot more sacred and the experienced more intimate and inward, but it will also mean that the gift we chose must the right one; a well thought token of affection catering to the individual assigned.


In Second Life it is another story, as the Linden Dollar Ratio allow us to be as lavish and generous as we can possibly be and indulge guilt free during the Holidays.  I certainly plan to put on my elf ears!


Style Info

Believe it or not we are using the same dress in all the pictures above and the same set of jewelry.  The strapless dress takes a new form and feel thanks to a print and color HUD for maximum versatility and the widest range of options that I´ve seen in a long time.  It comes in both long and short versions making it an easy choice to wear day or night.  The different color combinations allows you to dress it up in extreme elegance as well as in the epitome of the Boho Chic look.

The jewelry set comes with necklace, bracelet and earrings in several color combinations. You can stack the pieces for another dose of originality and creativity which will surely make you stand out from the rest.

I, like most of us, came to SL with a mixture of curiosity and awe, unaware of the changes that would take place deep inside as a result of my seemingly casual interactions.

In spite of years of traveling, having been exposed to many cultures and value systems and being able to navigate any social circle from high to low in RL, it has been in SL without a doubt, where I have learnt the most about respecting our differences and the unlimited complexities of the human mind and spirit to the best of my abilities in action.

I have learnt to love or cherish people with whom I would had never crossed paths before in my life, appreciating their good parts, tolerating their bad ones and embracing their entire package for what they are.

I can attest that everyone has something to offer within the roles they choose to play wether they are aware they´re playing or not.

We all have something to teach, even so called bad guys, girls or trolls have at the very least the capacity to bring forth the images of that which we would not want to be and propel us fast forward towards our chosen true path.



The person in front of us in SL can be the real one, a projection of their true inner self, or an aspirational fantasy of their own.  They can be negative or positive, healthy or ill, mentally fit or not, deceitful or sincere,  but they all hold something in common, they will become part of our educational baggage and teach us by mirroring that which we want to either become or stay away from  better than anything we have experienced in our lives before.

At the end of the day there´s always Real Life to go to, where hopefully the lessons learnt will prove wether or not we have indeed become a better you, a better me, a better us; and that´s what matters.

Style Info


One of the latest from Indyra and one of my favorites.  A much welcomed and needed  updated version of the lacy SL dress but this time with as many HUD appliers for all your mesh body parts as they could have possibly include.  It also comes with an option to wear the skirt completely straight or slightly flared at the bottom.  Available in many colors.

The criss cross shoes with an inner platform are the latest from Zanze – which by the way, chose JayJay Ragu as the first Miss Zanze yesterday – and comes in a variety of colors.  Meant to be worn with your Slinks !

Indyra – Promise Dress.  Zanze – Corazon Shoes in Red.   Addict – Bracelet


A beautiful and casual outfit available in several color combos.  The top has a cross heart cut secured with a golden brooch that gathers down the neckline in a deep V. The bottom is a straight mini held up by a leather belt and golden buckle. The outfit comes complete with feminine and sexy T Strap stilettos and clutch bag.

Gizza – Anne Marie in Teal.  Includes Shoes and Clutch.   Gizza -Pearl Set in Gold and Silver
