* Parfum de Cristal’s beautiful winter wonderland & Advents *

Being in the Winter/Christmas Spirit, I have been taking full advantage of this time of year. From decorating the home, to visiting Santa, and checking out all of the amazing Advents that are featured this year in Second Life.

From checking out the list of different advent calendars to grab up some great Christmas items from. I ended up finding this amazing winter wonderland, where one of the advents are located.

This place is beautiful

But, back to Parfum de Cristal’s beautiful winter wonderland –

Right after you land, the first things you’ll see is this beautiful home along an icy river, and also Santa sitting upon a train, scooting around a Christmas tree.

There is also a lovely lighthouse a bit into the distance that you can walk to, climb to the top and see a view of the surrounding area.

The first two spots I ended up finding were buried in the woods a bit. One was the icy Carousel that is so pretty. And also this small little winter park that looks perfect to Christmas photos.

Along with the beautiful mountains, you can find this gorgeous house sitting a top a hill. And right in front of the home you’ll find three grazing reindeer.

Besides the reindeer you can find many other animals around this SIM. Even a Polar bear and Penguins floating on a mini ice burg.

You can also go sledding and do some ice skating 😀

And before you decide to leave, don’t miss the chance to watch the Northern Lights bounce across the nights sky.

* Rico’s Tea House *

After a stressful week or day, everyone needs somewhere to be able to just kick back and relax.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Isle%20of%20Flux/204/86/27

Aviary Photo_130451260514470141

This was my goal, and I think I found it at Rico’s Tea House.

Aviary Photo_130451227715968725

From right when you land, the whole set up and landscaping of the sim, is very relaxing and comforting. So first thing I did was grab a seat in front of the shop, and started to take in everything that I could see around me.

Right behind me in the picture is a very picturesque bay, with a few sailboats filling up the docks. Even spending a bit of time by the water was wonderful.

Besides the bay you can also find walkways that lead to fountains, little lemonade stands, and beautiful gardens.

Aviary Photo_130451274723741639

As for the Tea House its self I loved the decor inside, I could look at it everyday. The whole set up is beautiful even at first glance.

Aviary Photo_130451228997551571

Right as you step inside you find yourself in a room with plenty of seating, and filled with roses. The first thing that caught my eye was the chandelier which is amazing.

Aviary Photo_130451257957813915

Directly to the left of this room is a similar area, but has tables and chairs. The tables filled with cupcakes, coffee, tea, macarons, cakes and other delicious treats.

Aviary Photo_130451259297424980

And right agaisnt the wall, you can find anything your little heart may desire. (well in treats at least 🙂  )

Aviary Photo_130451259884300922

If sitting inside is not your thing, and you may be looking for something a bit more private. There are these beautiful silk covered tents outside with seating also. Spend sometime surrounded by lavender and lemon trees.

Aviary Photo_130451261212099988

Besides what I have shown you, this isnt half of what you can see. There is even a pool on top of a hill, but I’ll leave that for everyone to explore. The best part about Rico’s is –

Aviary Photo_130451266007657574They are always open!!!

So, what are you waiting for. Take a peaceful break, or bring that special someone you’ve been trying to find a way to ask out. Having a cup of coffee is always a great ice breaker.

I hope everyone enjoys this Tea House as much as I have.

The-Arbor

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/POMODORINO/119/228/1510/

I have been on a search lately for a nice romantic place that is quite, calm, romantic, and peaceful. Just happens on one of my days searching I come across The Arbor. I fell in love right away, this has been just the place I was searching for.

The owners are two sisters Sarah Elisabeth Brenham and polly steerpike right as you enter the restaurant they are both very sweet and welcoming. Creating the feeling of being somewhere magical and still being very comforting. A place where you can feel at ease.

Upon the destination guide has this to say. “The Arbor is a very established restaurant and one of the oldest surviving restaurants on the grid. They pride themselves on creating our own unique dishes that you won’t see anywhere else in Second Life. They also create the mood and ambiance of different places around the world. Come bring your loved one to a private dining experience for a very low price. “
