Hopping and Hunting in Holy SHIrT, D!va, K-Room and ::YaYo::!!

Greetings!

With Easter just around the corner, I have found all kinds of hunts and sales hopping ALL over SL! Starting with this adorable mesh bunny dress from Holy SHIrT! The dress is FREE as part of the sim wide MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt…just find the little decorated Easter eggs, placed in the stores and around the sim, click on it and buy the item for 0L! There are TONS of eggs to be found as well as lots of really great deals from the stores on the MC Fashion Stores and Events sim.  I needed something cute to accompany the dress…so I decided to do a little hunting and hopping around the Marketplace.  I found this “My plushie rabbit..with Easter basket” for only 1L…from DramaZone!

~Hopping into Easter~

I also found these *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L.
~Hopping into Easter~I finished off this look with the ::YaYo:: – Bunny Face & Stripes – Dollarbie…just 1L from ::YaYo::.  My gorgeous hair is a previous Lucky Board prize, Nana (Ruby) limited color, from “”D!va” Hair.  Not to worry…there are always fantastic styles up fro grabs in the “”D!va”” Lucky Boards and NO group join is required.  The color is limited to the Ruby I have on…but is is sooooooooo sweet, it’s a fun color for spring and a great way to try out this fabulous designer’s hair.  You can also join the “”D!va”” group for free and you will find quite a few group gifts on the second floor!
~Hopping into Easter~

You can’t see my nails very well but these Slink compatible appliers, from Ch’Know Nails:  Summer Skies – Fingernails, are so cute and only 20L (for each set fingers/toes)…I couldn’t help but to include them in this post!

Duh! It’s Alice!

Blogging soon

Happy Saturday, fabulouses! Spring has finally sprung (thank goodness!), and I’m enjoying a beautiful day in the garden in this sweet Alice dress and leggings, the April group gift from FA Creations. I think Thumper behind me approves. ;-) I’ve added these cute, straw flats, a brand-new release from Duh! The shoes come in a version for Slink flat feet, as well as a version for regular feet, so no feet have to go without looking so pretty. You also get a HUD with 11 different spring colors… all for only 25L. Oh, and if you’d like to try before you buy, head over to Duh! and grab the free pair in beige in the subscribo. Duh! subscribers should already have received them, but if not, check the history for a redelivery.

My pretty key necklace is the latest group gift from ::Fabuleux::. If you look real closely, you’ll see the tiny dollar sign. Cute! This gorgeous skin is Nomi, the latest release from Izzie’s. I have worn lots of Izzie’s skins in the past, but the one is by far my favorite; the luscious lips and the eyebrows are really well done. Lots of make-ups included, and Izzie always does a great job on the freckles that we gingers love so much! :-)

I’m Blossom-ing

finesmith_mar4_001f

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! I’ve been dying to see some spring, so I decided to show you this gorgeous Blossom gown and headpiece, which are the March group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. :-) And just as I was finishing up these photos, I got a note that the April group gift is out at Finesmith, so be sure to pick that one up too, while you’re there! My pose is from the March gift pack at Diesel Works Animations, originally shown by Skyler here. Be sure to grab yours before the gift is gone!

This pretty Mimi skin by Belleza is still available at The Arcade Gacha Event. I’m wearing makeup #3 (rare); Love showed #9 here. I have added a glossy lipstick by Lumae, which you can find in a free pack of 6 colors at The Skin Fair. Last day for both events is TODAY, so hurry over! BTW, I am smiling ever-so-slightly for the FabFree Photo Challenge #7: Show Us Your Smile. Sadly, I’m a day late for the challenge, but hey, better late than never, right? :-D

I <3 NY, and I Got Milk!

Blogging soon!

Oh my goodness, how is it Friday already?! It seems like this week has just flown by… probably because I’ve been stuck at home with a sick kid… but enough about that! This cute outfit, which includes leggings, sweater, and boots, is the generous Womenstuff Hunt gift from Hawker’s House. The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31, and there are some truly fabulous gifts available from 200 amazing designers, all for only 1L each. Some designers are even offering exclusive items which you will only be able to find during the hunt. Trust me, this is one hunt you DO NOT want to miss! :-)

ws_hawkers_fleur2blush_hands_001f

This cute updo is a group gift from *Milk* Hair. The group is free to join, and let me just say this: FAT PACK. That’s right, the gift comes in just about every color imaginable! So run… ok, tp… to Milk as fast as you can before you miss this fantastic gift! My fun ring and earrings are Marketplace gifts from .Olive. There is also a bracelet, but I figured it would just hide under my sleeve, so I’m not wearing it (but I did pick it up!). Called Maybe They’re Real, I can’t tell if they look like rocks or some type of reptile skin, but they’re cute – and unusual! – just the same. They also come in a dark gray color with red stones.

Need nails? I thought these appliers from .::Ceiling::. were fun, and they’re only 1L on the Marketplace! Appliers for your toesies are also included. :-D

Blogging soon!

My skin is the lovely Fleur, an new release from Bite & Claw for The Skin Fair. She will be released in the usual B&C 5 tones, but I’m only showing a preview of tones 2 (light) and 4 (dark). I’m typically a fair-skinned girl, but I have to say that tone 4 is really nicely done. There are several make-ups and the usually appliers available for this skin. FWIW, The Skin Fair opened today (March 14), and I’ve been trying to get in all day today with no success. It runs until March 30, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for us all to pay a visit!

Bullying Stops Here!

I had really hoped to post this yesterday, but for some reason, WordPress was being a stinker, and every time I tried to log into my draft, I wound up in one of Love’s drafts. Weird! I finally gave up and went to bed, but I’m back today to share this news with you!

PurpleMoon Creations is sponsoring the SL version of Pink Shirt Day – Bullying Stops Here. The actual Pink Shirt Day was yesterday, February 26, 2014, but… you can continue to support the project until March 4, 2014. If you head over to the PurpleMoon in-world store, you can pick up this cute t-shirt for a minimum 10L donation. More is appreciated, of course, but every Linden counts. And fellas, don’t feel left out because there is also a pink shirt for you! ;-)

Blogging soon!

From the PurpleMoon web site:

“Bullying can take place anywhere and it’s important to speak up about it. Stand against bullying without saying a word by slipping into a pink T-shirt.” PurpleMoon Creations invites you to wear a specially created mesh pink shirt for males and females and show your support against bullying. A minimum donation of L$10 is required but any higher amounts are appreciated!

Net proceeds from this project will be donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Boys & Girls Clubs Anti-Bullying programs. As of yesterday afternoon, PurpleMoon had raised almost $30kL!

As the mother of a young daughter, bullying is something that worries me every time she goes to school or interacts with others. I remember the “mean girls” when I was young, but sadly, there are so many more and different avenues for bullying nowadays… it really is scary. Many thanks to PurpleMoon Creations for spear-heading this project in SL!

A few more items of note in this post: my super cute, ‘do is a new group gift from Tram. It only comes in this ginger color, but it does include a resizer, so you can fit it to most head sizes. My skin is the Pink Fuel Sora Peach Flushed which Love originally showed here. My bracelet (which says “Friends Forever”) is a gacha from NuDoLu, and because Xia said I need to wear glasses more often, I’m wearing these fun Peace Glasses from Fabuleaux (also a gacha). ;-) OH! And my pretty nails are a free gift from Flair. There are several other gifts available on the wall at Flair, so be sure you pick them all up!

Going Anywhere in Glitterati

Blogging soon!

I’m all dressed up with somewhere to go… but… where? I seem to be a bit lost here… I guess I’ll just head towards Anywhere and see where it takes me! :-) At least I’ll be looking good on my way in this fabulous group gift dress from Glitterati by Sapphire. The jacket is mesh, and the skirt is a fun, swishy flexi… perfect for a night of dancing! The Glitterati group is 50L to join, but is so worth it considering the monthly gifts and discounts for members. My jewelry is an older group gift from LAZURI; in fact, I first showed it here about a year ago. But I noticed yesterday that it was back on the group gift board (it might have been there a while and I just noticed it today), so I thought I’d share it again! As with much of LAZURI’s jewelry, it is color change, and comes with 9 metals, 6 gems, and 9 stones for the center heart. Oh, and 2 different styles of earrings! Finally, these super cute shoes are by {Mango Cheeks}, and you can find them at the current round of Kustom9.

Fly Me to the Moon (and Back)

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Today is the last day of FutureWave, and as promised, I’ve got a few more goodies to show you. There are so many amazing creations on display… I wish I could show you more, but unfortunately RL has kept me hopping all week. In fact, the thought of flying off to the moon sounds really appealing after the week I’ve had! :-P But enough about that… here’s the stuffs!

Blogging soon

This gorgeous dress is by .:ellabella:. at FutureWave, available in several different color combinations. The texture is outstanding IMHO, and I really like the space design on the skirt. It comes with the pretty necklace I’m wearing. Not free, but a really great deal for all you get. Ok, so… what IS free? These glowy, neon wings by Stuck Products are free! I love these so much, especially since you can change the color to match what you’re wearing. The wings are part of an entire glowy, neon angel outfit, all of which is FREE. You can find it next to the typing discs I showed yesterday.

If you are wondering, this fun, To the moon and back pose prop is by ~*HopScotch*~. You can find it at the current round of Genre… six cute poses are included. :-)

Blogging soon

How much do I love this skin?? Seriously… WOW. I’ve been wearing Pink Fuel skins pretty much since I landed in SL and figured out how to shop, but I always felt they had a slightly younger face than I would have liked. Now… here is Sora, and she is beautiful! This special edition in the alabaster tone is currently available at FutureWave. It’s not free (I know, “Booooo Serena!”), but it is a really fabulous deal for such a lovely skin. Lots of eye make-ups and lipsticks in the package, along with basically every type of applier you could want, as well as this supernatural face glow which I’m wearing here (which made my face all shiny and alien-ish). You can bet that I’ll be tapping my fingers and sighing impatiently until the full version of Sora is finally released! …le sigh… Anyway, if you want to give Sora a try but don’t want to spring for the special FutureWave edition, you can still pick up the Sora Flushed skin for 75L at the Pink Fuel main store (Love showed it here).

Finally, two more FutureWave freebies/cheapies. My mani/pedi is a free gift from ~*By Snow*~. The nails have a “circuit” design, and the version I’m wearing comes in black or silver. There is also a gold version in the box, as well as a face tattoo. And last up is this cool Steampunk ring from Chaos, Panic, & Disorder. Obviously you can’t see it in the picture, but the gears spin around… how cool is that? There is also a men’s version available – only 1L each!

Did I mention that FutureWave ends TONIGHT (23 Feb 2014) at midnight? So why are you still reading this? Go! GO NOW! :-D

My Buddy!

Blogging soon!

Happy Saturday, fabulous readers! I’m out for a stroll with my little Boston Buddy. I seriously cannot resist SL dogs, and this cutie-pie from BIRDY is no exception. I love her little sweatshirt (color-change!), and the fact that she doesn’t even complain about wearing it, or try to eat it, like my RL dog. You can find the Boston Buddy at the current round of The Men’s Department. ♥

Mikunch is offering this 2-piece skirt and sweater combo as a special “renewal” gift. You don’t even have to join a group… just drop by and pick up a copy! I should warn you that it only comes in 1 mesh size – XXS – so if you’re a more curvy lady, you might need to adjust your shape. I typically wear a standard XS, and as you can see, the outfit fits me fine. Oh, and I picked up these cute cowboy boots with socks in the *COCO* Designs gacha at The Chapter Four. So much cute stuff there this round!!

Mmmm… pizza. And COFFEE! :-D

Beautiful Music

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never to late to make beautiful music together. You can find this lovely, romantic pose at Positure Poses (piano is included). ♥

While you’re at it, be sure you pick up these beautiful shoes. They’re the Valentine’s Day group gift from Gos Boutique. Gos shoes are always amazing, and these Carrie Pumps are no exception. The come with a stocking option with 5 colors, which I have turned on here in white. But – and here’s the catch – you ONLY have until the end of tomorrow, February 21st, to pick them up at the store. You’ll find them near the landing point by the stairs. (The group is currently 500L to join while the gift is out, but I believe it drops back down to around 50L when there is no gift.)

This sexy negligee is the February gift from ~ghee~. This is a gift for EVERYONE, and no group join is needed – yay! These pretty bracelets are a group gift from Maxi Gossamer, and can be found in the notices. Gavin’s suit is the men’s New Year’s gift from Gizza Creations, and it includes the pants, shirt, and jacket. His shoes can be found in the 0L clearance area at *COCO* Designs. I’ll warn you… they were very small when he first put them on, so they might actually be women’s shoes. But I made them quite a bit larger using the resizer, and they look like they were made for him now. :-) Oh, and see that cute picture on the wall behind us? That’s a new dollarbie at floorplan. It comes with 3 “nerdy” romantic textures; this one says “Amin Mela Lle,” which is the Elven phrase for “I love you.” Don’t ask me why I know that. ;-)

This gorgeous build is the Dion Skybox, which you can pick up as a free subscriber gift from Llorisen. It’s really a good size and weighs in at only 12 LI.
