By – Perceptions Sita Writer. Visit A Cozy Winter Set Heart Homes PLUS LoS BoS & !IT! @ Marvelous for original post.

It is  a cozy time of year, I  have the tea on Mr. X and the couch from Aphrodite@ Heart Homes holds a surprise… and, Marvelous Events is on… with fabulous exclusives… I  feel like Christmas has come early!! Please come and  join me… let’s be cozy… 
Aphrodite at Heart Homes has made “Merry Christmas Set”  it is really nice.  As a matter of fact  it is the perfect living room for a  smaller home — it is romantic and all items are  copy.   The bed sofa is filled with tender comfy cuddles for two as well as activities, sleep options plus  single aos —  and something even more….. Merry Christmas comes with  chairs, cuddly rug, fireplace, bed sofa, small  Christmas Tree, couch table, hot chocolate & cookies tray (YUM) and a  decorative bowl with candles.  
The Merry Christmas Set comes with something I have not seen in SL ever…  and I love it!! The  couch turns into a bed and  do I have to tell you how much Mr. X likes that ???   It is  really great… and so much fun —  it comes with so many activities — movies,  breakfast,coffee, reading and more… it also has a full set of  cute cuddles and sleeping aos. At the moment I am wistfully having a breakfast tray… I do love  breakfast in bed… don’t you Mr. X?
To be in the holiday  spirit, I am  wearing the Sweater Dress Called  Frankee by LA BoS; it is an  exclusive @ Marvelous Events.  I love the sexy off the shoulder look of this dress that is made for all mesh bodies including Lara that I am  wearing.  Best of all it comes with a color changing  hud that offers 10 colors  5 attractive  solids and 5 unique abstract patterns. Marvelous will run through  12/25 — check it out… it has  great exclusives by top designers… at fab prices… plus lots of fun events and special gifts!
I also found a great necklace and earrings at Marvelous Events called Majestique (Set 160) BY !IT! I love the  18 kt gold filigree necklace  and the gorgeous cameo  Christmas Tree.  The earrings are composed of the same filigree and cameo making it simply elegant.

The Horizons Homes

By – Across The Grid With Lindal Kidd!. Visit The Horizons Homes for original post.

For a long time now, Linden Lab has offered a free Linden Home to Premium members of Second Life.  These were always intended to be “starter homes” and as such, they have a number of limitations.  The most obvious is, they’re small.  They are on 512 square meter parcels, and until recently only allowed 117 prims (the recent prim limit increase to Mainland regions has raised that to 175.)

Besides being small, you can’t get rid of the Linden Home and put a house of your choosing on the parcel, or place a skybox above it.

Linden Lab is attempting to address these limitations with a new offering in the Horizons regions.  The Horizons Experience is a quest-type game against the clock, featuring a number of challenges.  But besides the game, the new Horizons regions offer residential parcels.  These are 1024 square meters in size.

You can rez your choice of several pre-installed Horizons-themed houses (which don’t count against your 350 prim allowance, similar to a Linden Home), or you can place your own structure.

Horizons parcels are NOT offered as a free Premium benefit.  You can, however, use your 512 sq. m. land allowance and apply it to your Horizons parcel.  That means that you will only pay tier on the remaining 512 sq. m., or $ 5.00 USD per month (in addition to your Premium membership fee.)

Horizons parcels are currently being sold on the Land Auctions page.  After they’ve been auctioned off, the only way to get one will be to buy it from another resident, or find one that has been Abandoned by its former owner and purchase it from “Governor Linden.”

For lots more about the new Horizons land parcels, see this Wiki entry: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Horizons_Parcel_Ownership

I’m sure these will be of interest to many people, especially those fairly new to SL.  But, as a landlady, I’m feeling quite grumpy about them.  Once again, Linden Lab is setting itself up in direct competition with the Residents.  Phooey.

Mr. X its Teatime – Aphrodite @ Heart Homes and Luxe Paris

By – Perceptions Sita Writer. Visit Mr. X its Teatime – Aphrodite @ Heart Homes and Luxe Paris for original post.

There is nothing cozier than a cuppa hot steaming tea on a cool fall day when the leaves drift slowly on the autumn breeze.  Aphrodite @ Heart Homes has made the perfect autumn tea set that sets the mood.

The autumn tea set is beautifully hand carved in a rich maple wood finish that just screams fall.  I love the leaf shape of the chairs and table and the graceful curves of the legs… making this set rustically elegant.

This set comes with trees, two chairs, a candle and festive placemat plus tons of animations for male, female and even child avatars.  Each  has 6 animations to choose from.  Everything is copy so it is not a problem to add additional items to your scene.  As with all of Aphrodite @ Heart Homes items this one comes loaded with interactive ao’s you can have soup, three types of drinks including tea — and you can even pray!

I am wearing a new release by Luxe Paris called Chic Devil crop top and pants.  I love the elegant detailing on the crop top with its lace-up embellishment at the decorative waistline that really shows off my curves. There is nothing more classic than black silk and gold.

I decided to dress down Chic Devil crop top and pants by pairing with the high lace boots also by Luxe Paris from the Saturday Hoodie Top, Shorts and Booties outfit.  It just goes to show you how versatile this outfit is…

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34.  At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options.  After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.  NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need.  This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

Mr. X and Coco – Aleutia @ Spoonful of Sugar & Aphrodite @ Heart Homes @ Tres Chic

By – Perceptions Sita Writer. Visit Mr. X and Coco – Aleutia @ Spoonful of Sugar & Aphrodite @ Heart Homes @ Tres Chic for original post.

Who doesn’t want a romantic autumn hideaway — Mr. X and I do and this fabulous greenhouse like “autumn” hideaway is ideal and can be found at Tres Chic.  This comes with  ten animations and many props and is only 37 prims and this “Cozy Fall Shelter” is perfect.

I am wearing a great new outfit available at Spoonful of Sugar by Aleutia.  The top is called coco and the beat up leather pants are called Zeta. Aleutia’s exclusives going either 100% or 50% to Doctors Without Borders. WOW is all I have to say.  This comes in so many colors… I am wearing ginger —   but also loved cinnamon — and of course  loved it in autumn rose, oatmeal, boysenberry, blueberry, charcoal… you get the idea.  The amazing thing is that the  halter tank top has the same tones as the rips in the leather pants… oh so cool and oh so very clever.

Autumn getaway has a very cute interior with loads of props and tons of detail… plants, a chair for singles and couples with activities (drinking coffee, reading etc.), hanging lights a  foliage rug that acts like a reflecting pool… very very unusual and don’t miss the detail of the pumpkins outside the getaway house…. there are sleeping squirrels… all cuddled up!
