Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine

I have some great news for anyone who loves Pink Fuel skins! Mochi has created a brand new skin especially for new residents under 30 days old that is completely FREE! This is a great introduction to the world of skins to any new person in SL and whats also great is that if you really love the skin and you are over 30 days old, you can purchase them at a hugely discounted price of L$150 per tone!

The skin is called Renee and is available in four gorgeous tones. In the picture above I am wearing the Peach Tone. Inside the pack you get two skins, one with light brows and another with dark brows, plus a modifyable shape (I am wearing my own shape in the pictures) and some simple black eyeshadow so you can change up your look in an instant! Appliers are available seperately. Here you can see the other three tones included in the pack!

Also in the picture I am wearing the new SL Free’s & Offers group gift from MoiMoi who have generously set out a fatpack of HUD controlled Summer Bikini’s that also includes two fatpacks of the Summer Sandalet shoes that includes 10 different colours in each. One pack has silver detailing while the other has gold! Above you can see a few of the options for the Bikini. Below are some of the colours for the sandals. They come with their own feet that you will need to colour change to match the skin you are wearing. You will not need SLinks for these. The SL Frees & Offers Group is free to join!

The RGB’s I found for the feet to match the Pink Fuel Skins as best as I could are as follows. First I chose the lightest tone from the selection at the side of the HUD, then these are the numbers:

+ Crystal = Unfortunately the HUD does not go light enough
+ Peach = R255, G299, B224
+ Honey = R195, G162, B149
+ Espresso = R71, G52, B46

Hopefully these will be useful in getting you close to the desired shade if you want to match the skins in this post. You may need to tweek them depending on your lighting and if you are using windlight as it can affect the result.

Queen of Everything

Queen of Everything

Thank Goodness Monday is OVER! There’s nothing like a little retail therapy to make even the worst case of the Mondays all better!

When I was little my mother used to tease me about being the “Queen of Everything” because I was a tad dramatic at times. Okay, I’ll be honest, I still kinda am. Ha! So when I saw the Subscribo gift at Milk Motion, I got grabby hands and had to have it right then. If you’re offended by a little foul language, read no further. The shirt reads “Queen of Fucking Everything”, it is fully mesh, and comes in the black version I’m wearing and a white version. I like that, because all girls can be Princesses, I’m the freaking Queen! ahahaha You can be the Queen too, just run on over to Milk Motion and get this top before it’s gone. To accentuate my queenly attire, I pulled out a past group gift from Epic. This sugary sweet crown is still available for free with an Epic VIP Group Tag. Every Queen needs shoes, I got mine at HollyHood. These “Mecca” heels are the current Group Gift there. I love these shoes, ’cause they are the kind of heels you could wear with anything and look awesome. Go get yours! (All this queen stuff has made me feel bossy.) Last but never least, the thigh tattoos, we all know I love tattoos. This “Crowns” tattoo was just too perfect for the outfit, and at $1 Linden from ECCO, can’t beat it!

Here are the details, go be Queen of Everything!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their hunting!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

More Ice Cream Please!

Snapshot_003

Hi Fabulouses!  You know what I have done far too much this summer?  Eat ice cream… I can’t help myself…  There this this new flavour called Birthday Cake Oreo and it’s got to be the most perfect ice cream flavour ever!  It appears I can’t get enough of ice cream inworld either because today I did the Minnie’s Soul 2 Soul Ice Sundae Hunt.  I ran around all over the place picking up MORE ICE CREAM!  How it works is…  you join the inworld group – which is free…  Then you hunt around the sim and inside the shop to find 11 little pink sundae hunt icons.  Pick them up for free and you’ll have a ton of summery items both for women and men too!

In this photo,  I am displaying the Denim Tunic Dress, Women’s Sneakers and Summer Sunglasses which are all free prizes for the hunt.  This hunt is active until the 31st so you have a few days to finish, but it won’t take you more than 20 minutes or so!

Happy Hunting! <3

Gorean Feathers

White Gorean

 

Recently it was pointed out to me that in my last few posts I’ve been wearing very little clothing. After a second of thought, I laughingly agreed. It seems “less is more” has been my accidental theme for the week. So today, I decided to continue with the tradition, and show off a little Gorean style gear I picked up at the current round of The Fantasy Room.

Seriously, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. I love fashion of all kinds, don’t get me wrong, but there is a special place in my wild little heart that loves fantasy themed or inspired looks. For those like me, The Fantasy Room is an amazing event where you can pick up incredible items at a discounted price for the duration of the event. If I had unlimited funds, I’d grab up everything there!

Really enjoying the jewel tones of the feathers in my Fantasy Room haul, I was uber excited to get a notice about the latest group gift from The Sugar Garden. Right now VIP members can pick up a very pretty set of eyes from the VIP Penthouse. The eyes almost have a water-color look to them, which I think is quite striking. Don’t forget that a group tag is required to enter the room!

Before I give you the break down, I want to tell you about this outfit I picked up from Sweet Lies Original at The Fantasy Room. This fun and feathery ensemble includes so many pieces. For just $50 lindens you get scripted and non-scripted anklets, bracelets, the feathered skirt, ear-ornaments (not pictured), hair-ornaments (not pictured), the bra top and matching thong, not to mention appliers for Lolas Tango and Phat Azz. That is awesome! In addition to my outfit from Sweet Lies, I couldn’t resist the Nativa set from Luas, also at The Fantasy Room. This set is just $50 lindens as well, and it includes a beautiful ear-cuff and face-chain set. To complete the look, and because I couldn’t resist the gacha, I tried my luck and got these cute purple flat sandal boots by Una. All in all, I really like this look a lot. I hope you do too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

So, shall we go on a quest?!

You’ll have to check this one out on your own, but believe me, it’s definitely worth the time to grab! #7, Cubic cherry kre-ations, has a really neat black tail as their gift! The little fin and water drop pattern add great detail to this.
