Keeping Warm with Rispetto

rispetto1_Final
Rispetto Designs
wants to keep you warm during the chilly months ahead and has several new coats for sale. Their October Group Gift is the Moda Mesh Jacket in Orange. You can wear it without a shirt or with a black shirt. I’ve paired it with a pair of Mesh Boot Cut Jeans in Black also from Rispetto that only cost 75L. The Rispetto Designs group costs 50L to join, but they have new group gifts every month and 50L is less than the regular price of one of the new jackets.

Furnishings Friday #19 – Charmed Creations & A One Eyed Jack

punkin

It’s Furnishings Friday #19 and this week I would like to feature The  Charming Autumn Decorating Side Table & Artwork you see hanging on the wall!  This wonderful autumn furnishings set  has a land impact of 18 prims for both pieces and  can be found at Charmed Creations as their Falling Leaves Hunt gift.  I have done a few posts with prizes in The Falling Leaves Hunt which you can find at the following links.

There is just a few days left in this hunt with it ending on October 24th.  The icon you are looking for is an orange leaf.

If you are looking for a fun activity to do this month, head down to the Chimeric Arts Pumpkin Patch and bring a friend!  There you can pick a pumpkin from the patch, and carve a unique jack-o-lantern for yourself.  All of the pumpkins are free and you can carve as many as you like and keep them.  I’m calling mine “One Eyed Jack”!  These pumpkins are mesh, so you will need to be on a mesh compatible viewer to see them!

patchIf you look really closely within the pumpkin patch you may find an extra surprise! The hosts of this Pumpkin Patch are also participating in The Trick Or Treat Trail Hunt.  If you come across a crow in the patch, give it a slap because you’ll be gifted with the Chimeric Fashions Pumpkin Mask shown below.

The Comfy Yoga Pants and Lazy Sunday Sweater in Black can both be found at The Black Only Fashion Event for 100L each.  These are not free, you’ll have to forgive me – but they are fabulous!!

Piccara, Roobix and Aeva//Heartsick

Halloween is literally just around the corner, so what better than some ghoulish fashion to get you in the mood for some trick or treating? And I’ve been playing around with Windlight again! Just for the top picture though as I really wanted to get a spooky atmosphere!

I love the Cute Halloween Dress that is the October Group Gift by Piccara, its just adorable and looks great with the Free Halloween Sleeve Tattoo that you can get from Buid @ The Midnight Nightmares Halloween Market.

Roobix has this really sweet Cat set as their group gift which includes the ears, tail and the feet that you can just make out on this dark background that I really shouldnt have used but I got caught up in the angles! There is a 50L fee to join the group but this is perfect for a sexy Catwoman Halloween outfit!

The skin I am wearing is the latest group gift from Aeva//Heartsick and is called Jaci. It comes in a pack of 2 skin tones with 4 cleavage options. It is 100L to join the group at the moment but this really is a beautiful skin as you can see!

Free and under 10L

Free *Cupcakes

Did somebody say Cupcakes?! Ok, I may not have a delightful little cake for you with icing but I still consider this a treat and just as sweet. I randomly popped into Cupcakes to take a look at some of their skins, and was beaconed by their Lucky Chair to have a seat. Who can resist a Lucky Chair?! Plus lady luck looked like she was on my side, because I was able to get my hands on two skins, for the magical cost of $free.99, and let me tell you, $free.99 is my favorite price point. So lets take a look at the goodies.

Cupcake1two

This first skin is called Emma, and I would say it looks sweeter than a cupcake. Its perfect for the change in seasons, as the sun tans begin to lighten up for the fall and winter. Oh, and those rosy cheeks should be able to weasel you out of trouble any day, the skin just looks so innocent even if you aren’t. However, if you want a little bit of drama, you can always add some lipstick and eyeshadows, since the skin has a really great neutral look.

CupcakeKate
The second skin, Kate, has more summer color left over and would be a great transition between your summer and winter skin.

As you may notice, there are some serious curves dipping and winding around this shape, and I love when I come across a mesh outfit that doesn’t hide much of those curves.  So you could only imagine the heart stopping joy I experienced when I found these two outfits. How much you ask? Oh, only my favorite price of $free.99, they are group gifts offered from Liv-Glam at the Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge Mall. You have to join and wear the Cosmopolitan group tag to get the gifts inside Liv-Glam’s store.

Cupcake1

The outfit that I am wearing with the Emma Skin is called, Members Gift 005 and comes with all the accessories except the shoes. Oh and fear not, those shoes are relatively free, you have to join Felicity’s group for $30Ls and you pretty much get 6 free shoes. Yes, you read correctly, 6 (S-I-X) free shoes. At the end of the day, adding that group is a long term investment.

Cupcakate2
As for the outfit with the Kate Skin, it is called Mariah Frill Dress and only comes  with the dress, but who could turn down that sexy dress. It has an eye-catching pattern and rich red accents that should make you the hottest person on the sim.

At the end of the day, I rather take these Cupcakes over regular cupcakes… unless we’re talking Red Velvet Cupcakes.

Do you have your Mojo?

MojoSkin2

Yes I said it, its time to get your Mojo back, and if you didn’t have it in the first place its time to get one! I know we are thick in the Halloween season, but in the mist of the gules and goblins we still have to stay fancy right? So lets get on down to business! If you are looking at yourself thinking you need a little spice in your life, then you should immediately take yourself on down to Mojo’s main store and pick up their current group gift skin called Phoebe. This skin has a sweet milky brown tone, and there is no need for an additional make up layer. The eye make-up has an appealing hint of purple and the lips have a rich dark mauve color, just simply kissable.

When I first seen the skin, it gave off an adventurous and edgy energy that garners a second looks, so you know you will turn heads. To compliment the skin, I paired it with a sensual curve hugging one shoulder mesh dress made by Kybelle Charron at Rare Ware. Then to keep with the theme of adventurous and edgy, I added wild curly hair called Jina from Fab-U-Lous.

Can’t you just feel the sexy oozing through the screen, now thats what I call mojo!

Mother Goose, Bonne Chance, SOUL & SuPerBia

Its not really like me to deviate away from my usual Windlight settings of “AnaLutetia – AvatarOpt2 Whiter” but after wandering through Tempura and its beautiful Autumnal scenary I wanted to make at least one picture look really pretty. So I went through the options and settled on the Windlight Setting called “Annyka’s Soft Lavender Day” for these pictures!

I love the Autumn Poncho by Soul, its perfect to keep you snuggly warm while you go wandering through the woods. It might be a little too cold for shorts but the Group Gift Zoe Shorts by Bonne Chance! are just too cute to resist! Good thing I have these suspender socks by Dirty.Little.Secret to keep at least some of my legs warm!

I decided to sass the outfit up a little with some accessories by SuPerBia. You can find the piercings and Earplugs as Group Gifts at their mainstore and the Halloween Nails are free at their stall at The Midnight Nightmares Halloween Market

The skin is by Mother Goose and is another addition to their growing 1L skin range. I love the cute little stars above the eyes!

I think its time I went home and got a mug of cocoa before I catch a cold!

Bad Things

Snapshot_005

This HAWT Leather Milan Dress made by Sassy! that is currently being featured at The Black Only Fashion Event until the end of the month (195L) inspired me to go a little dark and fangy, so I picked up some free items and nearly free items to accessorize it with and headed down to The Haunted Mountain of Marathon Caye  for sight see-ing and photos when I was distracted by a delicious looking snack!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider Necklace and Earring Set can be found at Chop Zuey as a free gift for all and my long black nails are a free subscribo gift at Virtual Insanity.  The vampire fangs can be purchased on Marketplace for 5L in Pennywise Bracula’s store.

Snapshot_006The skin I am in today is a Belleza gift that was given out last December.  I chose to wear it today because of the gorgeous red lips – and it’s still available as a free group gift!  It has been a long time since I pulled out Xmas Gift Lily, and I am not sure why, because it really is a stunning skin.  The Belleza group is 250L if you are not already  a member and there are several skins available in the gift pack.

Thank you to Cranston for allowing me to use him in the photo – he was so naturally perched up there, and it was perfect!  No Cranstons were harmed in the making of this blog post.

She’s a Love Zombie {dollle*} with a Paper Heart…

I absolutely LOVE Halloween..and I look forward to when October rolls around so I can start putting costumes together and decorating my place.  One of the best things about Halloween in SL is that I don’t have to wait until the 31st to start wearing my costumes and the decorating isn’t limited to my small First Life apartment.

{dollle*} just sent this fantastic Bloody Bandage Dress to their subscribo members. *It is a mesh item so you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see it properly.  I paired the outfit with this fabulous Bride of Frankenstein Hair from Paper Heart; available on the Marketplace for 1L and the Blood Blaster Heart from A Folf in Sheep’s Clothing; also available on the Marketplace for 1L.

I finished off the costume with a deep crimson colored lip tattoo, that I scored for 1L from cStar Limited, at The Boho Culture Fair, Bloody Tears III Face tattoo (5L) from REPULSE , and Dead bloody eyes from Sicknessthesia…(FREE) on the Marketplace.  The Liane Goth skin in silver, from Amacci, was featured by Renee here.

I went all out decorating my sim for Halloween and I saved buckets of Linden by taking advantage of the wonderful hunts taking place around the grid and by scouring the Marketplace for freebies.  The Zombie Mausoleum is a prize for the SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt from Post Mortum Designs, the crows are actually Walking Skeleton ACTION auto-rezzers from Another Fine UGH Design  for 10L on the Marketplace and the tombstones are free…as part of a Halloween Decor set from Diavolo Creations. The black pumpkins are a  group gift, 50L to join, from ::PM:: Purple Moon Creations.

Hunting for freebies on the Marketplace can be quick and easy when you use a few tricks to filter what you are searching for.  I always search the Marketplace with a key word for the item I am interested in and then use the “Category” and “Price” filters in the side column.  The category column can be filtered down to a fairly specific group and I usually search for items priced between 0-10L.  There are other ways to search for freebies on the Marketplace, but I find this to be the quickest route.  Just remember to only take freebies that are from the creator of the item and that you write a kind review if you like the item.  Creators really appreciate the positive feedback and it is a great way to thank them for offering something free to everyone in SL.

Additional Info:

The pics were shot on my private home sim, which is part of SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt…so stop in to hunt for your FREE gifts!! (Made by my fantabulous husband <3)

The facial expression is from AnyPose Expression, available for FREE on the Marketplace, from Phate Shepherd Creations.

The pose was created by myself using Animare Pose & Animation System (NOT free), available on the Marketplace, from YT Recreant.
