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!!!

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!
Pure Poison @ The Fantasy Gacha

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)

Do-do-doin the Dot, woah, DeJaaVu!

So…I have said it a number of times, I’m sure, I love polka dots. Now, if I haven’t said it to you all, well, I sure thought it a lot, cause I do. You just have to ask my Mom, who dislikes polka dots…so I tease her about the cute things I find that are covered in polka dots! I’m so mean. Anywho….what is better than finding a cute freebie that has one of my favourite patterns all over it? Finding a hunt specifically for said pattern. That’s right, a hunt full of polka dots, called Do the Dot!! I plan to show you a few of the prizes over a couple posts, and while all the things I have gotten are really nice, I think the dress I am starting off with is one of my favourites.

reddot1

The offering from [ DeJaaVu ]  is the Samiya dress in Blue. It is a gorgeous mesh dress, in all the standard sizes, and I can’t say this enough, I love the colour combination of the material. The texture is really nicely done, with lovely little details such as seaming under the breasts and on the edges of the sleeves. Those little things sure make a dress feel complete. All items in the Do the Dot Hunt are free, so all you need to do is find the little black and white polka-dotted ball hidden somewhere in the [DeJaaVu ] store. The organizer’s of the hunt have kindly put up a page with hints and slurls, as well as preview pictures of the gifts. and because I am so nice, I will give you the address., HERE[DeJaaVu ] is store #42, so you will need to scroll down a bit. The hunt runs until Aug 31, so you have plenty of time. I had to take a closer picture of this dress for you all, I hope you can make out the details I mentioned.

OK lovelies, just the one piece for now, but I promise, I will show off a few more for you all really soon. It’s so hard to choose what I am going to post about :) Until next time, TTFN!!!

Under The Solaria Sun

Snapshot_003Hello Fabulous readers :)  This week I watched one of my favourite movies, “Under The Tuscan Sun” which I have seen a bazillion times, and was inspired to revisit Solaria inworld, which is  a beautiful, authentic Italian themed sim.   There was plenty of Italian chatter going on in local (which I didn’t understand of course, but it sounded lovely all the same), and even a handsome Italian man playing his guitar and singing.   It was “almost” like I was right there in Italy… for a few minutes anyways, until I was ever so rudely yanked back into the reality of RL where the laundry machine was buzzing at me to start folding. MEH.. But…  before I logged off, I managed to snap a few photos of the outfit I am wearing today because I thought you might be interested in hearing about the great gacha deals and freebies I put together.

The classy white 9-5 Dress is made by Sassy! and is available at the Greek Isle Gacha for 50L per play.  There are several colours to play for, but I was inspired to wear the white ;).  Those of you who saw the movie or read the book may remember the reference.

My Damselfly Sunhild hair can be found at The Fantasy Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  I think you could roleplay this versatile style up or wear it with a classy dress too.  There is also a pretty cool mens hair to play for too that is very much like Kahl Drogo’s (rawr) from GOT!
Snapshot_005Are you eyeing up those hot shoes, wondering how much they are going to break your bank?  Well…  If you happened to listen to me when I was telling everyone to join the Essenz inworld group when it was free to join and they would soon have VIP gifts [HERE], you can now find the Slink High Feet Add-on Denver Shoes in White in the past notices for a limited time.  If you aren’t already a member, you’ll need to pay the 350L join fee.
Snapshot_004More “fab” news to share with you is that in the notices of the MOCK Cosmetics inworld group (250L to join), there are a ton of Innocente Lipcolors as gifts!  I have shown five below, but there are a ton of colours!!  This is a very generous group, very often offering plenty of group gifts – well worth the join fee!

Scrounge Up 10L Ladies!

Snapshot_002Good evening Fabulouses!  I hope you don’t mind I am playing a little bit of catch up for my week away!  While it was really nice to be “offline” for a bit, I missed SO much!!  Some things I nearly missed, but got back just in the nick of time for… like the adorable black Cut Out Hem Dress that Hilly Halaan put out as a Fabulous deal, priced at just 10L.  The dress itself is cut so sweet with a short flowy skirt, and cut out arms, but the embroidered bow texture on the chest sold me!  I have included a little closer of a shot so you can see the detailing a little better.
Snapshot_003I accessorized by outfit today with a couple of Pure Poison finds…  The Swirls Bowtie  necklace which is a free group gift has been previously shown a couple of times, but is still available today at the Pure Poison mainstore along with a ton of other great gifts.  You can find these A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Goddess Sandals in black and gold versions made by Pure Poison, featured at this round of Collabor88.

Guest Blog by WHC Riler – Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black!

A Guest Blog by WCH Riler – Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black! Originally blogged [HERE]

I have been quite busy lately, trying to make up for the time I was away. You know though, it’s only fair if I work hard, I should get to play just as hard. So, tonight I am going out to catch a blues band at my favorite bar. A new guys’ hunt just opened which is quite special, and I wanted to take a moment to tell you about it. The Blues is a gridwide hunt brought to us by the people at Depraved Nation. It is not a free hunt (each prize costs 5L), but there are some very nice gifts involved in it and it is definitely worth a look. A night out on the town is the perfect occasion to show off this hunt prize offered by NERD MONKEY. It consists of The Black Classic Shirt, The Gray Classic Tie and The Gray Classic Vest. All three pieces are mesh and completely separate. The texturing and the stitching on the vest alone blew me away. For 5L not only do you get this nice outfit put together, but you can also combine it with other pieces in your wardrobe to make it an even more exceptional value. The Blues hunt is on until August 31st, check it out.—–WHC Riler

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’m a Barbie girl….

Hi everybody!! I know, I know, I have been a little MIA for the past while, but I hope I can make up for it with this post. I hope you like retro, because my look has that great 60’s mod look to it, with a touch of Barbie.

modbaby1

As of Aug 3, the newest round of the Pre-release Gacha Garden is up and running, and Dirty Little Secret has a super cute retro dress as their gacha item, as well as a free gift that just so happens to look great with the dresses. I am wearing the  Swingy Sundress in the rare Checky pattern. While I have always gone on about how much I love colour, I also love rocking a bold black and white print, and this dress has checks and polka dots, so I am one happy camper. The colourful common dresses are all just as lovely, and I have included a picture of the gacha board so you can see all that you have the chance at winning. These are mesh dresses, and come in the standard sizes. At only L$50 a play, you might as well try for a couple.

modbaby
[d.l.s.]  __ Swingy Sundresses AD

So, I mentioned a free gift as well, didn’t I. It’s true! On the table the gacha is on, there is a little black box that contains 2 free makeup sets that pair really nicely with the Swingy dresses. The Madmen Makeups are eyeshadow and lipstick combos, with the lipsticks for both being a deep, dark, matte red colour and the eyshadows have a great retro feel, each slightly. I went with the blue set, and if any of you are Barbie fans, you may feel like I do and are reminded of the makeup on the original Barbies, with the thick eyeliner/lash line and baby blue shadow. Did I mention these are free? Oh, I did, but it doesn’t hurt to mention it again!

Ok fabulouses, that is it for me, for now, but I promise, I will be back. Until then, TTFN *waves*
