Who needs colour on the beach? Rocking the monochrome!

Ok, I’m back with another Do the Dot Hunt post. I have to say, one of the things I love about a good hunt, there is always a store with great shoes in the hunt, so it’s so easy to put together an outfit. Especially when the hunt has a theme. Like polka dots! Have I mentioned how much i love polka dots? LOL.

For today’s post, I started with the very classy looking dress and hat set from Fi’s Creations. The lovely DO THE DOT Pencil-Dress & Hat set includes a fun floppy hat, and a form-fitting mesh dress, in standard sizes of course. Conveniently, the belt on the dress has a separate flower attachment, so you can choose to wear it, or not, I love options. The flower for the belt matches the flower on the hat, and has this great texture that makes them look like they are glittering as you move! To remind you, all gifts for the Do the Dot hunt are free, and you are looking for a white, with black dots, ball.

My shoes are the hunt gift that you can find at B!ASTA. They are the [ B! ] :MOVING TO SALAMANCA: Dotted sandals (for Slink Mid). Don’t you just love the name? While they could have been any colour, and I would have been happy, I really like the monochromatic look I get when combined with this dress, especially when my surroundings are so bright and colourful. Ohhh, I almost forgot to mention, for those of you who do not have SLink feet, there is also a pair for system feet! Everybody wins with these :)

That’s it for me for now, but I still have a few more hunt gifts I want to show you, so don’t worry. In the meantime, you can head over to the official hints and preview page for this hunt HERE. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Priestess for a day….

I love the Egyptian culture, especially their history. If any of you have ever perved my profile in SL, you will even see that in RL, I have a tattoo of my own Egyptian cartouche, which happens to be of my name.  That tattoo also has a cat in it, another of my loves. So I was super excited to show you all this post today, as it contains both of these :)

Sekhmet1

The Tales of Fantasy event just opened up this weekend, and I decided to head over and take a look. The moment I saw the Sekhmet gacha from Sweet Lies Designs, I knew I had to play it. At L$50 a play, you get the chance of winning either the rare texture change mask, or one of 4 collar and sceptre sets.  I have pretty good luck with gachas, and won the mask on my first try, and as I liked all of collar and sceptre sets, I was content enough to just play one more time, and ended up with set #3. As quickly as possible, I put my look together, feeling like a priestess of Sekhmet, if not Sekhmet herself, and headed over to the Ancient Egypt/Amarna sim, and spent the day pretending that it was 2014BC instead of 2014AD.

Sekhmet2
Sekhmet Mask, Collar & Scepter - Sweet Lies Original jpg

I have included a picture of the gacha board so that you can see the differences between the different collar sets. Now, I did notice that the collar I got, while it says it is the #3, has blue and white stones, instead of the red and white like the picture, so I have sent a notecard to Hadarah Steamer, the owner and designer of Sweet Lies, to let her know of the difference. Either way, I think I am going to be walking around the grid as a priestess of Sekhmet for as long as possible…well, at least until I start putting together my next look for all you lovely readers :)

Edit : I received a reply from Hadarah, and she has fixed the items in the gacha. So if any of you fab readers tried the gacha and got the same set I did with the miscoloured stones, do not hesitate to send her a notecard about it. I love when a designer reponds so quickly to a sent notecard or IM. Thank you so much Hadarah!

So, until then…TTFN!

I Sit By The Harbour, The Sea Calls To Me

The Aloha Fair ends on the 11th August, so we are in the last week of the event! Be sure to stop by to get all of the great gifts, freebies, discounts and dollarbies that you can find! Today Im going to show you some more!

Untitled

If you are looking for a great cover up for the beach then the Pearl City Tunic by KaraBaby could be for you. Its so pretty you could even get away with wearing this to a beach party. Flip Flops are a summer time essential and the Black and White Hawaiian Flip Flops by Romano Kona Kixx are going to be something thats going to be hard to take off this summer! We all know I love flowers in my hair, but for a seaside twist the Mermaid Hair Wreath by Grafittiwear makes an adorable change!

Untitled

There are several different dresses that you can find as gifts and dollarbies at the event. Here are a few of them! First the Hanky Short Mesh Dress by M&M is a bright fun and flirty beach dress that is bound to get you noticed with its floral print! The Alice Mini Dress (Red) by Like Design is the perfect summer evening date dress with its crimson fabric and daring neckline and lastly the Ke Alaula Kaftan by Entice is ideal for an afternoon of shopping or coffee with your friends in that little cafe right on the beach front!

You might remember the hair in this picture from my previous post about the Hair Fair. This was Exiles very generous dollarbie for the event and alot of people were disappointed when they missed it. Well be dissapointed no more as you can now find it in the subscriber at the Exile mainstore! Simply click to subscribe and then click again to bring up messages and you can find it under message number 1!

If you like the skin, you can find it at The Greek Isle Gacha event that started on 1st August and runs all month long! There are heaps of gachas there for you to play including the Lumae machine that this skin is from! It is called Elianna and is a special preview of an unreleased skin. There are 2 tones and 7 make ups each to collect! You can find the Lumae gacha on the bottom floor of the building along side the landing point.

Swinging in a hammock on the beach..can it get any better?

Sometimes, you just need to be lazy, find a beach, and do nothing but lay around in a conveniently provided hammock! LOL.

lazybeachy1

OK, I wasn’t totally lazy today, I did pick up a few group gifts that you all need to know about. Starting with this summery peasant top from Hilly Halaan. The [hh] Ella Peasant Blouse, with 3 different applique patterns, is a current free group gift. I am showing you the round applique version, the other 2 are lovely blue sequined patterns. These blouses are mesh, in the standard sizes, and it looks to me like they are materials enabled, as they have a bit of a sheen to them. You can find the box of these in the group notices, not in store. , but you should still head to the store, as there are several past gifts still out for you to pick up if you did not already. The group is still free to join, so what are you waiting for?

lazybeachy2

My other find is from Pure Poison. They have put out another pair of gorgeous shoes in their group gacha, this time, it is the Pure Poison – Annie Sandals for SLink flat feet. I’ll remind you how this gacha works, you join the group, if you haven’t already (it’s still free), put your tag on, and then click on the group gacha. It will randomly select one pair of the sandals for you, just like a pay gacha, except this baby is free. You only get the one chance, but there is a pay gacha of the same shoes, right beside it if you want to try for a different colour, and at only L$50 a play, they are still a deal!

lazybeachy3

Okay, the sound of the waves behind me are making me verrrry sleepy, so before I start spouting sleepy gibberish, I am going to sign off.

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Can a Rock Star wear a cat print?

Happy Friday everyone!! How has your week been? Mine, hot……I was melting all week, as I do not have air conditioning in my house, but when you live in an area where 3/4 of the year is winter…it’s almost silly to have one. LOL. Anyways, enough about that, I have a few fun hunt gifts to show you :)

rockstar1

With it being the start of the month, there are loads of new hunts starting up, 2 of which, are the FemBoy Hunt, and the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. Insanya is participating in both of these hunts, and it just so happens that the 2 hunt items go together perfectly! First up is the :::insanya::: Kitten Shirt for the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. This is not a free hunt, each prize is set at L$5, but, when you find the cupcake for this shirt in the store, you will see that it is worth it. This super cute, kitty print, mesh shirt comes in standard sizes, and also comes with a texture change HUD with 10 different colours to choose from. The cat print was a win for me right off the bat, but the texture change HUD just made it even better :) The other hunt gift, from the FemBoy hunt, are the :::insanya::: Liquid Latex Capris – Leo – FemBoy Edition. Now, do not assume that this is a hunt just for the boys, as you can see, these capris are totally female friendly, they are system layer pants, and  even come with appliers for Physique, Wowmeh, Phatazz, and Booty. I think they make a great pair of leggings in this outfit. This is also not a free hunt, but each prize is only L$2.

rockstar2

Isn’t it awesome how well the 2 prizes work together, with a few well chosen, fun extras I had in my inventory, I kinda feel like the lead singer for an 80’s punk/pop rock band. Hmm..maybe I need to start up a band in SL…..I just need to come up with a great name, preferably with ‘Cats’ or ‘Kitty’ worked in there. Any suggestions? LOL

Well, until next time…Rock ON!!!

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.

I <3 Lingerie

Blacklace

Yes, I’m back, and with more lingerie! I couldn’t help myself, when I saw this pretty black lace set, I had to show it. I’m a sucker for these baby-doll style tops. I think they give a little sweetness to a very sexy look. This specific set is a new group gift from Blacklace. Feelin’ a little bit punk-rock today I decided to forgo the usual stilettos with my lingerie and go with some super edgy boots instead. These “pony” style boots are a statement all on their own. The best part is, you can snag them for free with a group tag and a slap to the group only Midnight Mania board at Aparecium.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Romantic Rosamarie

Snapshot_001Hi Fabulouses! I hope you have survived your Monday ok ;).  Even if it was really cruddy… I have some news that might just make your day if you are a fan of Junbug’s designs!

Junbug is participating in The Secret Affair and has the most beautiful three piece Rosamarie gown that you can play for in several different colours in a gacha machine.  After some piece swapping with my good friend Suz (yes they are transfer, so you can swap or gift!!), I was lucky enough to complete a few different colours, but this one is by far my favourite.  I am wearing the blush skirt, blush frilled knickers and the rare floral corset.  Each piece is 50L per play.  Make sure you try the demo first to see which size fits you best as you only play for the size you want to purchase.

*sighs*  I don’t even want to take this off, but I know I must, once this blog is done so that I can show you something else!  Want to see another colour tomorrow?  How about Azure!  That might be my second favourite.  he he.. ok ok.. I’ll show you something else.  Before I go, I also wanted to tell you about some of the other things I am wearing too.

The Keystone Nicolette Headpiece can be found priced at 50L per play at The Secret Affair and as you can see looks lovely with Exile’s new release “Blown Away” at the Hair Fair.  Now this hair is 250L per colour pack, but 25% of your purchase will go to Wigs for Kids which is “Fabulous” in my books!  Exile also has a delish dollarbie at The Hair Fair that you’ll want to snag – Tiana showed it to you [HERE] in case you missed it!

The skin I am in today is WoW Skins Lana which is currently being featured at Project Limited.  Only 50 fatpacks will be sold so if you love this skin – act quickly!

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind

The weekend is winding down for me on this Sunday evening, so I thought I would show you a few amazing things to help ease you into a new week.

If you haven’t been to The Hair Fair yet then now is the time as it is much less crowded now the initial rush is over. Exile put their dollarbie gift out last night, which is a reason in itself to go over as this hair is just breathtaking. They have made a special pack of four colours expecially as their dollarbie for this event and the ends of the hair is a sparkling rainbow ombre! I may never take this hair off as I am so smitten with it! Plus it perfectly matches the adorable Unicorn Clutch that I found when taking a wander over to The Dreamers Factory event. If you join the event group for free, you can claim the little swag bag of gifts nearby which contains this clutch bag and two sweet necklaces that I will show in a future post!

Soooo.. about this gorgeous hair ~ laughs ~ I know, I know.. Im going to be obsessed about it for a while. But as Im back on the subject, here is a picture of the three other colours in the package.

Exile Hair Fair

Ok, I promise I will talk about the other things now! IKON have a new Group Gift for July with the release of their Immortal Eyes range. Their gift is a set from this range in a striking green colour. These eyes are perfect for that otherworldly feel and I can imagine I will be using them a lot in the future! The IKON group is free to join!

As you may have noticed from my other posts, I have quite a love for flowery head bands and crowns, so I was thrilled when I stopped by The Secret Affair event. The theme for this event is Medieval Masquerade with a hint of A Midsummer Nights Dream and there are so many beautiful things to swoon over. The Rose String Crown that I am wearing in the picture is one of the rare prizes from the ieQED gacha but there are several different styles to play for!
