Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!

Craving Coachella

Craving Coachella

All weekend I saw people posting photos of their trips to Coachella music festival – you know, dressing up all crazy cool and dancing in the dust, with flowers in your hair.  I’m still stuck in the land of ice storms and shivers so I hopped inworld and found myself a cactus to pose beside!  I’m enjoying the rays of the sun on my way to see Beyoncé while sipping on some agave lemonade (I dunno, sounds like a thing to do in the desert!).  But the best part is – my outfit is completely free!

Dress me Up

I absolutely love this light and airy dress by Sophisticate that I found for free at the Garden of Shadows event.  There are several moderately priced gifts hanging around (mostly around 10L), but this one is completely free!  I love the mint green colour and the little heart cutouts.  Perfect for a day in the sun.  (I hope I don’t get weird tan lines…).  You can get it too by heading to the Garden of Shadows and seeking out the Sophisticate booth.  You’ll be happy you did!

More Hair!

Another event going down right now is Gachaland!  There are loads of  free gifts to be had there, but today I’m going to just tease a bit and show you the hair I found by Ayashi.  They’re always generous and have some great hairstyles out at events for free. Today’s side braid will keep me cool in the warm weather, as well as keeping me cool in the “Oh, Aline you’re so cool” kind of way since it’s pink! There are several pastel hues in the HUD with this hairdo.  Oh and yup – it’s free!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group and pick it up!

Who run the world?  Moi!

Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

Seeking the Sea

Seeking the Sea

I remember once, walking along the beach in Southern Italy.  It was hot.  It usually is there.  It was the end of the beach season though, so late August or early September – and the beach was mostly empty.  I was walking along, enjoying the sun, the light breeze and the carefree feeling of having sand between my toes, and water lapping at my ankles.  I looked up suddenly, and saw a dolphin swim by!  The magic of the beach does soothe the soul, and I know that the daily grind is wearing on me these days – time for a trip to the beach?  Maybe not in RL, but SL comes the the rescue again!

Beach, Please!

I found this glorious sundress – made for strolling along beaches, if you ask me, at DM Modas.  I joined their group for free and this amazing dress was all mine!  It comes with a really awesome texture change HUD, filled with 15 swirling summery designs that will set your heart aflutter.

Well darlings, may the beaches of SL and RL bring you peace and grounding!

Making it Happen

Making it Happen

I’m going to make the onesie as clothing thing happen.  I will, you’ll see.  Come on, think of the positives:  You’ll be comfy all day, people will compliment you on your style, and ain’t nobody else gonna be dressed like you!  Trust me, it’s going to happen!

My Lucky Onesie

I got my onesie (which by the way, if you click on it, you can take bits off one by one exposing different parts of your body…cough cough) at Vanilla Bae.  They’ve got five lucky boards out with a plethora of different looks for you.  You can join the group for 100L and pick up all five prizes (with a bit of patience) and also there are two group gifts to be had at the moment!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

My Empire

I’ve been a group member at Empire for a while – it’s one of those groups you join and just don’t leave because they come out with some really fab gifts semi-regularly (they aim for one every second month).  Sure, it’s 500L to join, but if you hurry over there you can grab all the gifts from 2017 as well as the January and March gifts (hurry though, apparently last year’s are coming down soon).  It’s a whole lotta swag.  This month’s gift are the Hazel shoes that come in a full fatpack of colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Now, me and my comfy onesie are making fashion magic happen.  Excuse us. 😉

Not So Basic

Not So Basic

My go-to is the little black dress.  I love the easy glam of pulling on a black dress and knowing it will be appropriate, no matter the situation.  However, some days you really just want to push the envelope a bit.  Purple is the perfect half way point, I think.  Because it’s dark, sultry, and um…not black!  In my post today, I’ll tell you all about where to grab this particularly head-turning ensemble!

Dressed Up

I found my not so basic dress at Masoom!  Their April group gift is this dress that toes the line between supersexy and regal, and I’m loving every minute of it!  You can grab yours by joining the Masoom group for 10L.  I mean, check out them cut outs!  How can you possibly live without?  😉

Well Heeled

My shoes today were a completely free find at Bodyfy – the event that focuses mostly on tattoos and other suchness.  I was pleased to find a free pair of shoes by Fashion Addiction.  Just find the red buttons at each stall to pick up your gifts – no group join required, making these pretty pumps completely free!  The Bodyfy event is open until April 24th.

Best Tressed

And, it’s Truth time!  The March group gift came out a smidge late, however check out this pretty thing!  As always, the Truth monthly group gift is gorgeous, with a full fatpack of colours and a stylist HUD that lets you change up the bangs.  It’s kinda like getting 4 hairstyles in one!  If you haven’t joined the Truth group, it may seem a little pricey at 350 Lindens, but every month you get a sweet hairstyle that is always top notch.  Well worth it!

Time to sashay away!

I have a love-hate relationship with lucky boards.  There are some that I totally adore, because I stand there for about 5 minutes and get a whole lotta swag.  Then there are others that I believe must hate me.  I stand there for ages, hoping for that letter A to pop up, and all I see is things like “number 5” or “Q”.  What the heck man!  What gives?  Despite the sometime frustration of standing beside boards that like to taunt me, I do get some really awesome stuff, and today is no exception!

Lucky Letter Love

Empire – purveyor of awesome shoes galore – have just put out 5 new lucky boards, and they’re completely free!  You don’t have to join the VIP group for these ones, there’s another update group to join that gets you these pretty little sandals!  The group joiner for this is right beside the lucky boards in store.  I got the Penstemon shoes, that are just so sweet and come in 20 colours – you can even change the colour of the gems on the bows.  Gorgeous!

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Top it Off

There’s no waiting and hoping for this gift from Promagic – just click on their free subscriber and you’ll get this really cute tank top that is splashed with happy colours.  You may need to click and go into the “history” section of the subscriber to find their April gift, and if that doesn’t work, just unsubscribe and re-subscribe, because that totally worked for me!  This top fits my Maitreya body perfectly.

Right – back to waiting for some more gifts to pop out of this lucky board!

Waiting for a Response

Waiting for a Response

Dear Spring,

Hey there. I’ve written to you before I know, but you still haven’t answered… I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I just wanted to let you know that I really miss you.  I miss your warm breezes, your blossoming trees, and your sunny days.  Winter is kinda overstaying its welcome here, and you know the saying – a visitor is like fish, after three months it stinks (isn’t that after three days? Anyway…whatever).  I’m just writing because I’d really like you to come back, and bring all your charming attributes with you.  Please?  Pretty please?

In Anticipation…

Since Spring is still hiding in my part of the world, I’m just going to dress up like it’s Spring and pretend that it’s warm.  I picked up a bunch of fun things at The Project Se7en event – It’s their anniversary, so in order to celebrate they’ve got lots of fun gifts at each booth.  To start things off, I got this cute pink romper by Sys.  I like how it looks all sweet and knitted.  Perfect for cavorting in meadows, I think.  I added these stockings by Ambrosia for a little innocent look, (can we really classify thigh high stockings as innocent…I dunno…but just roll with me) making this look even more fun.  The stockings come with appliers for Maitreya bodies.  Finally, my pose and the flower in my hair are a gift from Belle Poses.  I love the carefree daisy look!  You can grab all these free gifts (and many more) at The Project Se7en by joining the group for free, and taking a walk about and clicking on all the balloon-festooned boxes.  The Project Se7en is open until April 30th.  Have fun!

Heyyyy guyyyyys….

I’m up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness!  I dunno about you, but in RL I don’t look quite as poised when it’s time to have a little sweat sesh (ew why did I just say sweat sesh?), but I figure in SL you can always look effortlessly adorable and working out in a little skirt would totally work!  Wanna know how I put this look together?  Read on!

Sn@tching it Up

If you haven’t been to Sn@tch recently, you may not know that there are a bunch of new lucky boards just waiting for you to claim some prizes!  It’s completely free, no group join required.  You can grab all sorts of goodies.  I picked up the Connie Sport Skirt (comes in a miriad of colours, of course) as well as The Weekender top.  That’s one of my fave finds, because the texture change HUD has loads of options for this cute little crop top. There’s also a pair of jeans tossed in with the top, which come with system layers and an Omega applier.   I love it!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Bunny Shoes!

The good people at Reign put out a little Easter gift last week, and I’m sure you’ll agree that these shoes are insanely adorable.  From the little ears all the way to the cute little cotton tail, they’re just pure perfection.  You can change the accent colours on these cute sneaks, as well as whether you’d like the tip-toe version or a flat look – they come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.  To pick up your pair,  join the Reign group for 250L, and then take a peek in group notices to grab the sneakers to add to your collection.

Now go out there and feel the burn!

Too Cool for School

Too Cool for School

High School was a while ago for me, I’ll admit, but I still love the idea of a slouchy outfit, a high ponytail and a backpack slung low.  It’s that feeling of promise and excitement that I’d like to capture today – that feeling of your life ahead of you, while still thinking you’ve already got it all figured out.  Plus, it’s just generally a cute look don’t you think?  Pack a lunch and read on so I can tell you all about it!

Hunt On

I jumped over to the Land of Rainbows, and had a grand old time hunting for eggs all around the beautiful sim.  This is a true egg hunt, wherein you just wander and try to find as many eggs as you can!  Much fun to be had, and the eggs are all free!  I picked up this fun slouchy sweatshirt with backpack attached by M&M Style in my searching, which comes with a texture change HUD that changes the colour of the sweatshirt (and adds some sayings to the front) as well as changing the colour of the backpack.

  • Maitreya

  • Hourglass

  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Don’t Stop!

The leggings are another awesome find on the Land of Rainbows hunt.  I found these pretty leggings (which also have a texture change HUD) hiding within an egg.  I think these will be super cute for lounging around, or for working out in style! And happily they’re free!  There are loads of lovely things to be had – you can also see what Kathryn and Stan found! The Land of Rainbows hunt runs until April 6th! Hop to it!
