Christmas sweaters, yes! But I can’t get myself to buy ugly ones, despite the prizes at work for the “best” ugly christmas sweater! I’ll just pass on the free voucher, and buy my stuff!
But this one from Sorumin is actually cute, not ugly! With the bow on the front, I look like a gift. A really good gift if I may say so myself! I wouldn’t mind showing up in the office like this. I mean, I would not win the prize, but I’d feel good!! I’m wearing it here with Erratic‘s Kamryn pants and Gos‘Lena ankle boots. My Sun purse is from DDL, and my earrings are the Santa Inc giftie from Michan!!
For my face, I went with Nuve’s Regina skin on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon head. My hair is from Dura, NA23 and i bought it as TMD. it’s officially a guy hair, but I have never cared for that, it’s unrigged, so I can easily resize it to fit my girly head! For make up I went with Goreglam for both my lips and eye makeup. Aurora is the eyeshadow, and it comes in a set of lovely hues, and the lip balm is called Sonatine. Both are currently out at Santa Inc. This is also where I picked up my lashes from Michan and my eyes are Moonshine, by Avi-Glam. Still among my favorites because they make you look so soft, with the dilated pupils.
So yeah, turns out Covid finally got me! Never was a test result in faster and with brighter red stripes! It’s funny because the only thing that gave it away, or rather, what made me take a test last night was a little cough which didn’t sound like my usual one. I mean, in this time of year, I am pretty much always feeling sick or having some kind of cold, so feeling poorly doesn’t usually stop me. But because of that odd cough I figured, let’s put that stick up my nose so I can be sure there is nothing wrong. And here I am… in the guest room, isolating, to avoid that my SO, who is still testing negative, doesn’t get extra exposure. He’s immunocompromised, so we have been extremely careful over the past years.
Anyway. I kind of like it to make the pretty pretty skins of SL look less than gorgeous so for today, I continued on yesterday’s path. Starting out with LeLUTKA‘s Briannon (50% off all heads this weekend only for Black Friday) and Glam Affair‘s Sloane (ditto, 50% off for Black Friday, storewide), the Orpheus eyes from Gloom en Opale x Chain‘s Meisell hair, I have been adding tired/sick/poorly/ problem skin layers to my heart’s content! Are you ready? Here we go!
Oh, before we go there, the info for the Black Friday Sales, comes from Seraphim’sUltimate Black Friday sales list! It’s huge! Click on the image above to go directly to the list!
that out of the way, let’s then finally focus on the layers! I went with Izzie’s and Saxo mostly! Both stores currently have 50% off on selected items!
By Izzie’s: natural eyeshadow rose, 75% opacity; 01 frown lines 40%, 01 Forehead lines 40% and Blemishes 70%. By Saxo: Tired eyes soft Flu face (V1, yesterday I wore V2, which is newer), the Cheek dimple soft and the Chin dimple soft. To finish it off, I added The Skinnery‘s Wornout eyebags and Ladybird‘s Peony chapped lips.
For clothing, I opted for this totally warm and very funny Long & Home sweater by Sorumin, I love Yule pigs! Yule is a mid-winter tradition older than Christmas. A feast dedicated to Freyr, God of Yule and Fertility. Many traditions stemming from Yule have been incorporated into Christmas, to make the Christian feast more palatable to pagans. How’s that for appropriation? Anyway, I am rambling. Under the sweater, I even added Erratic‘s racerback (BOM) tank because you know how those Xmas sweaters are always itchy? Even though you don’t see it, it’s there. I know it’s there. I feel it’s there! My pants are from the Luna Lounge set by Osmia and you can almost feel the softness of the stretchy fabric. Elastic waistband of course. I mean, I really wouldn’t know, right, but My SL, My Imagination! My sneakers are from Friday, and they are pretty much my all-time favorites. The cute heart shape on the nose always makes me smile! Finally, I added the Daisy gem studs from Yummy‘s mega Dreamy earring pack
