The walrus lost a tooth

One of my favorite SL memories is last year's advent hunt at Sway's Creations... and it's not just because of the wonderful gifts. The marketplace was covered in snow and filled with wintry and holiday cuteness. It was impossible not to feel festive as I hunted around for each password. Although I hadn't been in SL for a couple of months, I began to think about that event as this year's Christmas season approached. After wondering if there would be another hunt this year, I logged in and headed straight to the source. Voila! The Advent Train! While I was waiting for the train to rez, I noticed this adorable hat in the clothing shop and had to get it. Luckily I had these super cute mittens from Reek to keep my hands warm in the frosty air.

A worm named Sammy

It appears I've been away from SL for the majority of the summer. While the temperature is still hot where I am, it's already back-to-school time. What I love most about this time of year are all the fresh school supplies and stationery products that seem to promise a new beginning to academia and creativity. Today's outfit was inspired by that feeling (and the pencils from Reek).

Cardigan: Oyakin - Knit Carde in yellow
