Under the Stars

And so, we’re back to Monday, my FabFree Dears.  I hope y’all had a good weekend and are starting this week with a smile.

new_003

I’m smiling because I’m starting a bunch of new Hunts. One Hunt full of really cute prizes is the Living Like Japan Hunt. This ruffled crop top is the ‘Sweet McFlury’ from Holli Pocket. As soon as I saw it I remembered long summer evenings at the fair or some little street carnival. It’s casual but still pretty and flirty. Then I found the sporty pink sneakers for system feet from Selfie and I knew I had an outfit.

Well, most of an outfit.  Then Just Because put out their latest group gift. It was like they were reading my mind! This is the ‘Denim Lace Skirt’ in pink and this completes my outfit perfectly.  Just Because has loaded this group gift with everything you could need. There are the standard mesh sizes L-XXS, plus versions for SLink Body, Belleza ( V 0.02 and V3) and Maitreya!  Plus the HUD included let’s you change the lace to one of seventeen different colors. All that and the Just Because group is free to join!

The Living Like Japan Hunt runs until July 15th so don’t delay!

Oldies but Goodies

62915front
I was talking with a friend the other day about one of our favorite topics (freebies, of course), and I mentioned how Paradisis was one of my favorite places for free goodies and great deals.  I was surprised she didn’t know about this little gem.  Over at the main store there is a corner full of sweet little bags containing over 30 cute and sexy free outfits.  Everything from jeans to lingerie, including this long tee and great ripped jeans.  A few of the items even include Lola Appliers.

If you read my last post, I mentioned that I was going to head back to the Valyria sim to hunt again and pick up more prizes.  This lovely skin is one of the offerings from 7 Deadly Skins for the hunt.  I love the lovely sun kissed tone and the peppy pink lips!  If you haven’t snagged any gifts yet from this great little hunt, this is your last chance!  It only lasts until the end of the month.

Continuing on my theme of favorite freebies that not everyone knows about are these cute silver bangles from Real Evil Industries.  In fact, this creator has a whole pile of gorgeously made jewelry set out for free and free to group (free to join).

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely week!

For the night is dark and full of terrors

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. I was in love with the books from the day the first one hit the shelves waaayyy back when.  SO when I saw that Seraphim was hosting a GoT inspired event… I was really really excited. The Conquest Event did not disappoint!

night_001

There are a ton of designer who clearly love Games of Thrones as much as I do. First up, this is the Melisandre set from Sweet Lies.  For 50L per play you can celebrate our favorite Red Woman, priestess of the lord of light and all around burn ’em all gal. There are five common dresses, all in shades of conflagration red and three rares: The golden chain belt, the handful of fire both of which I’m showing plus a ruby necklace.

night_002

Now I know that Melisandre didn’t work for the Targaryens but when I found this gorgeous necklace in Lost Junction’s gacha for just 50L per play and I knew I was going to go “off book” for this post. There are nine necklaces, one for each of the great Houses, with no rares. With my necklace in place, I went looking for something for my hair and I found the ‘Kyla’ gcaha from Distorted Dreams.  There are eight jeweled commons, four in gold and four in silver. The rares are these tiaras with the jewels and the roses. Technically there are four rares: black roses with gold metal, black roses with silver metal, red roses with gold and red roses with silver. However you get both the gold and silver versions of the roses when you pull a rare.

Your taxi to The Conquest Event which runs until July 10!

Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

black walls

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Snapshot_004

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!

Day or night…anytime is a good time to be a star!

My favourite part of being in SL is that I can pretend to be anyone that I want, or anything, at anytime. All I need to do is dress the part and poof..I become anything my little heart desires :) . The other day…I wanted to feel like I was a 50’s starlet, with all the glitz and glam that I could ever ask for. Of course, I needed the right look, and that is where Cog & Fleur provided me with not just 1, but 2 looks that just scream 50’s movie star to me.

cog&fleur1

I’ll start with my daytime look. What movie star could pass up a day at the beach? I sure couldn’t, especially once I saw that the current free group gift from Cog & Fleur was a goodie pack of summer accessories in a fun cherry print, all I needed to do was join their free group. The gift includes my fabulous floppy hat, a tote bag with 3 holding positions, and the sweet bow and cherry earrings, I’ve included a close-up picture so you can see each item better. Now, all you really need to do is throw on a cute bathing suit and you are set. Or, if you love cherries as much as I do, feel free to take advantage of the special group discount for the matching cherry bathing suit, SLink med-foot shoes and sunglasses set. If you have your group tag on, you can buy it for 50% off of its normal price, which is a great deal!

cog&fleur2

After a day in the sun, nothing beats getting all dolled up and attending some fancy movie shindig. This time, I was covered from Cog & Fleur‘s 2 Midnight Mania boards. My mesh Satin Doll dress in Opal is on the group only board, and only takes 40 slaps to lock. It comes in the standard sizes in both regular mesh, and fitmesh. My lovely matching Vintage Deco Necklace and Earrings, also in Opal, are on the open to everyone board, and will also lock at only 40 slaps. I just love this dress and jewelry, my pictures really do not do them justice.  You will need your tag on for the dress board, and again, the group is free to join. Oh, and I should mention, in case you are worried about having to use a group space…there is a box of past group gifts available for all group members, for free. I have still not finished going through all that is in that box. It is well worth the group space, that is for sure.

cog&fleur3

Lastly, and I am sure some of you readers who have been around for a while may have noticed, I’m a red-head in this post! When I tried on the Alina group gift skin from [PUMEC], there was no choice. This lovely freckled skin with it’s perfectly groomed ginger brows would just not look the same with any other hair colour. How perfect is the eye makeup for my retro glam look? This skin actually comes with very pretty natural lips, which you can see in my beach picture, however, I needed to stick with my 50’s evening feel and added a layer of red lipstick. Alina comes with a multitude of appliers, so everyone with meshy bits should be happy. The [PUMEC] group is only L$99 to join, and there is at least one other gift out for you to grab, if not more. This is a pretty generous group :) .

cog&fleur4

*sighs* What a lovely day I had. Not everyone can say they just decided to become a 50’s movie star and actually do it. This is why I love SL! Now I am off to find more lovely things to show you, and maybe become someone else entirely. Until next Thursday, TTFN.

Those Hot Summer Nights

summer2

Happy Monday, and happy summer!  To celebrate the new season,  I hauled myself on over to the Flawless Hot Summer Nights cart sale/hunt to pick up some truly awesome freebies and sale items.  There are dozens of carts on the sim, each with great deals all under $100L, a free gift (hunt for the ice pop!)   I picked up a few things while I was there… okay, a lot of things! This cute cross front top from Saris Creations was one of my favorite finds.  It has a sweet, flowing feel and a great texture.  It pairs perfectly with the Pale Green Necklace from the Beloved Jewelry cart and the Life Nail Polish from Posh Pixels.

It may be summer now, but these eggstrodinarily cute shoes from the MM boards at Bitch Heels are still among my favorites to wear.  Created for SLink high feet, but they are unrigged, so they have the potential to work with other foot styles. The boards do rotate through a few different shoes, but they all are amazing and worth a slap.  The pedicure is courtesy of the same Posh Pixel hud.  It includes 8 cheerful and sometimes psychedelic polishes for Slink hands and feet.  Each polish set is so bright and cheerful.

Here’s to a wonderful Monday, and an even better summer!

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue’s Magic

When we were children magic was very much alive. It surrounded us like light and water in a surreal and ethereal dream of shimmer and color.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [1]

The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and monsters were not just imaginary things. Trolls hid in our closets and under our beds. We played jump across the room, slap the light switch from a distance, and huddle under the covers. I used to imagine that within me was a power I could harness to ‘zap’ away the things that went bump in the night and obliterate them into oblivion. In my mind, I was not a wee child. I was a leviathan of strength — strong, mighty, powerful, and beautiful.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [2]

Somewhere along the lines, we grow up. And when you’re a teenager the monsters are supposed to disappear. You know they aren’t in your closet anymore… it’s then you realize they are outside your door. They are, instead, real people with faces. Names. Families of their own. My dreams changed then — as did my outlook. The Tooth Fairy’s wings were crushed into dust… and Santa Claus faded into obscurity as the Grinch stole my Christmas.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [3]

It was when I was an adult that I finally understood that not only were the monsters real, but that I did have magic within me that was very real as well. It was not fairy dust or hocus pocus of course. But it was magic nonetheless. It was then that I found harmony within myself.

There is that quote. Something about being afraid of the unknown? It’s when you know that the monsters are real that it becomes okay to sleep with the light off… because you know hold the light to banish them away within the palm of your upturned hand.
