It’s Already been Ten Years?

Love in Lavender_001

Celebrating Ten Years of Alice Project.

It’s hard to believe but this month, Alice Project is celebrating its ten year anniversary. That’s ten years of great hair. Along they way, the creator has given us many gifts, lots of new releases, and many beautiful styles. She announced this month on her blog here that she would be making some branding changes, and as a result will be giving an extraordinarily generous gift for the month of February.

If you are a member of the Alice Project VIP group, you can go to the Alice Project main-store this month to pick up a 1,500L in-store credit from the terminal. You can use the credit now, or save it for later. I used my credit to purchase the Denae II hair you see in the picture above.

If you’re not a member of the group, the group join fee is currently 500L, still leaving you 1,000L extra to spend free. In March, the group join fee will go down to 250L, but the in-store credit will no longer be available. So pick that up while you still can!

Loving it…

I was loving my new hair but I needed a little pick me up here before Valentine’s Day. I swear it’s my least favorite holiday of all. The only thing I like about it is the day-after candy sales.

Which I think is why I loved the Lil Tease Creations FabFree group gift. This pretty camisole which you can pick up free from their main-store by wearing your FabFree group tag, is covered in Valentine’s candy! It’s pretty as can be and comes in the standard mesh sizes with a nice alpha. It is a bit “cheeky” in the back (read short), but that just means that if you want to wear it as a shirt instead of as a cami, you could add jeans or shorts. In the picture above, I donned my Maitreya panties just to be sure no one got a peek of anything they shouldn’t 😉 .

Winter Maiden

Winter Maiden

25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

Classic Gothic Style

Classic Gothic Style_001

Gothic Style

I just can’t get enough when it comes to good Gothic style. And Pretty Kitty Designs is serving it up free with a great gift just for FabFree group members! You won’t want to miss picking up this gorgeous number with the striped pants (I love the detail of the lacings on the front) and the black star tunic.

What’s this?

And for free you’ll be getting plenty of sizing options too. You’ll get the pants and top as separates, and each comes in standard sizes XS – XL, Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya. All your major body types are covered, and there are good quality alphas included if you are still rocking your system body!

Think Pink

Pink_001

Think pink.

Keke is giving out a lovely free gift to remind us that girl power is important, and I couldn’t help but snatch it up. If you are a member of keke (or join the group for free, there is no join fee) you can pick up one of their pink pussy hats, kitten inspired, to support women’s rights across the globe.

The hat is mesh and fit down nicely over my Catwa mesh head (though I did use the Catwa base hair applier under it), and I didn’t have to do any adjusting for fit at all!

This hat is a lovely reminder of unity, support, love, and equality for women world-wide. 🙂

Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

Water Cooler Break

Water Cooler Break_001

Busy working… sort of.

It was a busy day at the office and I needed a quick break so I stopped by the water cooler. I managed to get in a little social networking while I was there as well… like talking about my latest outfit find at Prism. I hunted down this 1L Winter Blows Hunt gift in no time flat to add to my wardrobe just the other day and it is perfect for a day at the office. My colleagues agreed.

What you get.

The outfit is one piece mesh, belt included, and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system bod. I paired it with a pair of black boots for a complete look, but you could always go with heels. For 1L and some hunting time, this dress is a steal.

Back to work for me… break time is over!
