*does her best Paula Dean impression* Hey ya’ll!

Ugh, okay enough of that. I’ve got some goodies for you today. I must warn you all though: As I write this I’m quite sleepy. I blame my cat. She would NOT stop crawling all over me last night. Perhaps putting those soft flannel sheets on my bed wasn’t such a great idea, because she seems to think I put them there for HER! But I am anxious to let you all know about the little treasures I found, so kindly bear with me as I attempt to write through a lack-of-sleep-and-stomach-too-full-of-Red-Lobster haze! 😀

Want to take up all the space in the room, but in a good way? I stumbled upon this dress earlier today for… get this… 1L! o.O I know, right? It’s very twirly girly, and a pretty blend of blue hues. This dollarbie gown can be yours if you visit the store Hopeless Designs. It’s right by the entrance. This store has some fabulous shoes with intricate details. Perhaps when I have some extra lindens to spare, I will go splurge on myself!

After I found the dress, I turned around and VOILA! There was another box with two pairs of earrings in it. The box is not free and not a dollarbie, but it’s a fair bargain at 25L. Shown here is what the silver earrings look like. You also get a gold set. I really like these earrings, but I’m a sucker for silver. 😀

It snowed here today. Freshly fallen snow is beautiful to watch and look at, but I must admit, I despise cold weather. Many sims around the grid are decorated beautifully for winter, so I of course decided to wander those which provided a more summer-y atmosphere. Hmm… what does an avatar wear to go wander in the warm sun? Personally, I prefer a casual tank top and a trusty pair of shorts.

First I had to decide on a top. I reached into my “closet” for my Intrinsic Tank from JANE. These tank tops are free every day and come in a plethora of colors. We talk about these tank tops a lot, because they are just a basic necessity in every darling girl’s wardrobe. Be sure to look at the other adorable items in the store while you are there. They are well made and fairly priced (at least in my humble opinion). Now that I’ve got my boobs covered, I need to figure out what shorts I should cover my butt with. Basic denim just wouldn’t do on a day like today. I wandered over to Humming to pick up these adorable little button shorts in red. Yay! Now I have my…um… assets covered. Now, how should I wear my hair today? Decisions, decisions…

As you can see, I decided to go with a simple side ponytail with subtle curls. This lovely hair comes in a HUGE variety of colors and is currently a free gift from Analog Dog. Along with the ponytail you get matching hairbase tattoo layers for each color. If you haven’t picked this hair up already, hurry! I am not sure how much longer it will be out! 😮

In addition to my sweetly simple ensemble, I felt I should go in search of a lovely pale skin, since I decided on being a redhead today. Al Vulo has their newest group gift out. Paddy’s skin is delightfully light and freckled, and even has red eyebrows and a red hairbase. The Al Vulo group is currently free to join, and Hlin Bluebird, the owner, is very generous. I have a store bought skin of hers and it’s one of my favorites! I felt this skin needed just a tiny bit of makeup, so I turned to my 1L Julia eyelashes from Chuculet. There are eight different styles to choose from at the shop. 😀

WOOTS! I’m done and dressed! I think it only took me… what, 3 hours? Now, I’m exhausted, and too tired to explore. Figures, right? But my outfit makes me think of mustard and ketchup, and that makes me think of a corn dog, which makes me hungry, which makes me….

b[ELLE]issima! paws & furry tails

Acid & Mala members can pick up several gifts in store.  The red Xmas Turtleneck has male and female sizes and is a group gift for Acid & Mala group members.  There is a L$10 fee to join the Acid & Mala update group.  The black mini Rudolf turtleneck is the Christmas hunt (look for the Christmas ball) gift at Acid & Mala and the unisex Cowtrie-Shell necklace is the gift in A Depraved New Year hunt.

Once I saw the Cat Walker black paws and furry tail set in the lucky chair at Acid & Mala I knew I would be waiting until I won the prize.  These feet and tail look so much fun! The Elle Laine skin from b[ELLE]issima! is coming soon.  There are new midnight mania gifts at b[ELLE]issima! of male and female skins.  Only 70 slaps needed, so get on board quick!  The URC519 hair was sent to Boon update group members in a fatpack of colors.  Men keep an eye on this group because the notice said there would be a gift for you guys too soon!

Hey Mr.DJ

I really didn’t know how best to top my Octopus dress fiasco.

I took a few days to go about, trying to get inspired, and gave up.

When at DV8, I saw this kilt, and said oh yes, that is the one. It is one of the new group gifts from the store. The nice thing about the store is that the designers offer a lot to both sexes. Could be the fact that it’s a guy/girl team. I always see them talking in their group chat, sometimes just to shout the word bacon, and see who comes running. All the bits on this kilt are colour changeable. There is another colour in the MM board and a few different ones in the lucky chairs, if you not so up on Olive.

I for some reason thought that the kilt needed wings, and not really knowing where to go for free ones, I just hopped on to good old trusty SL Marketplace. I found a box that said Old Crap. I open said box. Throw on some wings.

Now these wings aren’t the best out there, this I know, even the designer says so on the marketplace ad. If you can’t handle glow on your computer, they wont impress your next date much, unless they are blind. But with glow, they are fab!

Now I’m not wearing my normal shape, it’s actually part of a package(not free) at the Dressing Room. Because of this I’m a lot shorter than usual, and it makes the kilt go into the floor. So you may need to mod it a bit to get it not to drag. It’s fine on my 7 foot shape(dude I’m really 7 feet, crazy!).

The tattoo is from Para Designs. They often are in hunts, and they have a very generous front desk filled with free and cheap items as a sample of the store’s quality goods.

Renee told me to go to Boon, and I already did, but sort of forgot to unpack the hair(probly, yes PROBLY,  got distracted sorting my makeup layers). I really like this messy look, and how you have to shift sideways to actually see my eyes. Oh! the eyes! they are made of real prims, and colour change. I’m wearing some headphones from SL Marketplace too, and tinted them to match the kilt. The skin is another offer at The Dressing Room(also not free).

I felt sort of spacey, and had been wanting to wear this necklace from Scars for a bit. I’m really glad it works and that I could share it with you. The necklaces come in both male and female sizes.

BOOTS! These bad boys you can get at KMadd’s Freebie Area. They are an offer from CheerNo. I don’t even take great photos and they look lickable. Don’t worry, I just took the tissue off them, so they aren’t even dirty.

Hair-Boon: IRK178 Hair in Chestnut (Instore Group Gift – L$0)
Headphones-Luminotic: (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Eyes-Primal Groove: Cyber Prim eyes (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
