Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend🙂.  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets😉.

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

Court of Owls

Court of Owls

Oh, that lag…

So far my first ‘Black Friday’ experience in Second Life has been fun and quite hectic. My full body alpha has never gotten so much use before and even then there were times when I couldn’t outrun the lag monster. Only in SL can you shop while being half trapped in a wall (lol). Anyway, these offers listed today are time sensitive but if you have a moment to spare check out the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. Most of these stalls are offering roleplay centric clothing but if you’re not an active role player like me (still on that bucket list) it’s still worth taking a peek to snap up some interesting pieces for your wardrobe. For this event, merchants have 30-35L items for Friday and half price items for Monday, though the vendors are set up through the event so don’t worry if you’re just teleporting in now to get your Friday items. What’s more, there’s a gacha market at the event as well and most of the stalls have a free gift out for visitors.

A girl and her owl

For the picture above I’m wearing the free gift from Pekas Gorean and Urban Designs. The Love and Roses gown come in four standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, XL) with an alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. I really love that full skirt and the rippled folds going down its sides are a very pretty detailing. You can never go wrong with the black and white combination and I adore the chalky flower patterns on the skirt and train of this gown.

My graphics card has been a bit grumpy as of late, as you might have noticed as I haven’t been sim hopping as much as I want to. Taking pictures in a box in one’s backyard can get a little lonely so I decided to add this little guy into the mix for today to keep me company. He’s from the Queen of Peace pose set by Belle Poses and is available for at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event for 35L. There are six elegant poses in the pack and you’ll get six different owls as well so there’s no need to fuss with the position of your feathered friend. He’s so cute that I might just rezz him for fun around the house though I hope the cats don’t try to eat him.

Another day another hair sale

Looks like I haven’t gotten my fill of hair sales after the first day of the Black Friday run. In all honesty, though, I had thought to hang my hat up and then saw that Ayashi was having a 30% off sale for its hairpacks and 50% off on gachas. Seeing that gachas are one of my biggest weaknesses I was off like a shot and picked up the Rumi hair for 50L. That the gacha machine gave me the pink set was just a bonus! The hair sale at Ayashi ends on the 28th.

Skin deep

I was pretty pleased to find that one of my favorite skin stores, WoW Skins was participating the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. I picked up the Ines skin for just 30L and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it contained six skin fatpacks in five tones. There are cleavage/no cleavage options for each skin as well as appliers for Slink, Lolas and Phat Azz included in the package. What’s more, there are two freckles tattoo layers included as well, making me a very happy shopper.

All about that bling

Full disclosure, I’ve never really worn very many accessories in world. I always vow to punch up my outfits a little bit more with bracelets or earrings or necklaces and then turn around again to grab that full body alpha layer because I’m going to an event. The perils of lag and blogging amirite? Looking through the various free gifts that I picked up at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event, however, I found a beautiful jewelry set by Footpaw industries. It includes a tiara, earrings, bracelets, two hair accessories and a necklace. I’m only wearing the necklace in the picture above and thought that it’s glittery diamonds and artistic design made the entire outfit more refined.

And that’s a wrap for today dear readers. Have fun inworld and stay safe!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Saturday – 11/26/2016 – Eclectic Stars

Eclectic Stars FFDFHello Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long few days and I sincerely hope you will all forgive this late edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. I blame Thanksgiving! That said, the lateness of this post does not at all reflect the level of Fabulous of this week’s shop Eclectic Stars. The word eclectic sincerely suits this shop. Though small, the store offers a wide range of mostly women’s clothing and furniture; all of which are delightfully geeky!

Eclectic Stars has been part of the Second Life world since 2013. The shop’s creator Jadziyah describes herself as both cheeky and geeky, and I believe her. You’ll find both attributes in her playful creations. The clothing appears to be mostly casual mesh women’s clothing. The clothes are often brightly colored, and there are a lot of hilariously nerdy graphic tees with references to pop culture, gaming, and everything in between. You’ll find the clothing to the left, along with a few tattoos and some gachas. On the right side of the store as you enter is where you’ll find some whimsical furniture and decor. It’s in this section of the Eclectic Stars shop that it becomes unmistakably obvious the creator is a gamer! You’ll see what I mean when you visit Eclectic Stars yourself.
Eclectic Stars FFDFAlong with all the geeky goodness, there are a few opportunities for FREEbies that I spotted while I was exploring the Eclectic Stars shop. There is a current group gift located behind the front desk just as you enter the store. The Eclectic Stars group is FREE to join. You’ll find the group joiner above the group gift vendor. Pictured above, the group gift is a puny tshirt that would make any geek proud! Also don’t forget to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift while you’re there, assuming you haven’t already. Julianna blogged the super cute Fab Free group gift dress in her post here. The Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars is just inside the store and to the right. You can’t miss it!

Through the Woods this Black Friday

Into the woods

Sn@tch up your fishing rods folks, the tides are coming in again!

I was just talking to Kathryn the other day about the fishing prizes at Sn@tch and she commented on what an avid angler I’ve become. It really isn’t hard to get hooked (ha ha) on fishing for prizes as Sn@tch changes out its prize outfits on the regular and they never fail to contain a wide variety of clothing pieces so that you can play around with different looks. Not only that but accessories, makeup and footwear are often thrown into the mix that you can wear with other items in your inventory. The latest Fish 4 This outfit is called Through the Woods and generously contains;

  • Five system snowpants in plum, red, green (pictured), teal and white
  • Snowpants mesh cuffs
  • Two system turtleneck sweaters in grey (pictured) and black
  • Five mesh tops in army (pictured), black, plum, red and teal
  • Mesh Fur Coat
  • Ankle boots
  • Though the Woods makeup tattoo layer in plum (not pictured)

If you have a mesh body or head never fear as you can catch the Omega applier for all the system and tattoo layer parts of the outfit from the prize filled waters. The mesh tops and fur coat come in both come in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with an added fitmesh size for the fur coat and respective alpha layers to help with the fitting. Speaking of alpha layers, one is included for the ankle boots as well and you don’t need to have mesh fit to be able to slide these beauties on. Whew! That’s a ton of detail but I had a lot of fun figuring out the color combinations and there are already a few dresses that I have in mind that would go wonderfully with those boots. Fishing at Sn@tch is completely free but you do need to purchase a basic fishing rod for 100L to get in on the fun. Rods are available on the marketplace or at the Sn@tch store. It’s a great investment as you’ll get a lot of mileage on these outfits so to speak and since it’s Sn@tch, it’s top quality!

Into the woods (bonus)

While I was there…

Alright, alright I’ll admit that fishing is not all I do when I’m at Sn@tch. If you’ve been to the store you can’t really fault me for that as there are a lot of great outfits lining the walls. What’s more that are lucky boards to stalk and riot vendors to keep your eyes on so I had great fun multitasking and packing my wardrobe with great clothes from Sn@tch. The gown pictured above is new on their riot vendors and something that I just had to share. I got it for 55L as the store was pretty packed that day and when I opened the package up, I was floored by the options. First of all, you’ll get this glittery and flowing floor length skirt in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL). Secondly, the strappy and backless top comes in eight different colors and five standard mesh sizes as well (XS-XL). Thirdly, there are also two different alpha layers included in the package to play around with. The subtle dusting of glitter on the skirt and the rhinestones that line the neckline of the top add a glamorous air to the whole outfit. Not only do I intend to wear this for upcoming parties this Chrismas but it’s also given ideas on a new blog segment as well (hmmm). Bring a friend or ten to Sn@tch today and pull those prices down, down, down to get the Gala Sparkling Brocade Gown into your inventory as well.

So you may have noticed…

So you may have noticed that I’m wearing a different hairstyle in each picture. That’s because of Black Friday and the insane number of sales that are going on right now. The offers that I’m about to list down are time sensitive as they end today but there’s nothing like a bit of rushing to get that adrenaline pumping I’d like to say. In the top three pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Doe that is having a 50% off sale for all of its Gachas. Playing a Gacha from this store has always been a staple for me at Gacha events so I was over the moon excited. Doe always has the cutest hairstyles and their colors are always so vibrant.

In the bottom two pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Besom. The store is marking down its hair packs to 75L and I took the opportunity to fill up the gaps in my Besom hair collection. I’ve always been a fan of the wonderful texturing of Besom hairstyles and their styles have an urban flavor to it yet still look so elegant. Hurry down to both stores to take advantage of these great deals maybe we’ll bump into each other as I’m certainly making the trip back.

-Cups hands around mouth and yells-

7 Deadly s{K}ins is going to be having free group join starting from the 28th of November! I can’t say enough how much I love the skins from this merchant and they always have such great perks for their group members. Not only are there regular monthly group gifts, there are also Midnight Mania and Mini Mania boards as well as Lucky Chairs. While browsing through their Black Friday Sale (60% off CasperVend items!) I managed to claim the Libra skin for myself. I’m been eyeing this skin set for so long that I was jumping for joy to see that my letter was up. Luckily I didn’t hit the ‘discard’ button in my excitement so now I’ll be able to tell you all about the Libra skin set! In the package, you’ll receive the Libra classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options in five different tones (Pineapple tone pictured) as well as appliers for Slink hands and feet, Tango boob, and Phat Azz. What I thought was special about this skin package was that a version of this skin in Gothic makeup is included as well. The Gothic skins come in the same five tones as well as cleavage/no cleavage options. You’ll get twenty skins in one pack as a lucky chair prize, how mind-blowing is that? Mark your calenders for the 28th and wait patiently…

You might also want to…

Check out Elephante poses. The store is having a Black Friday and Retirement sale with the entire store excluding collabs and new releases being marked down to 50% off. The older stock is being marked down to 75% off so be sure to look for purple and white tagged items for more discounts. I really love using the poses here as they’re very fluid so come and take advantage of the sales before it ends on the 27th of this month.

And that’s a wrap for today. I’ve gotta dive back into those Black Friday sales. Maybe I can even claw my way to the one at Truth….

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize.  Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the party (lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!

November Rain

Snapshot_003
Hi there Fabulous Readers🙂 I hope you are enjoying your week so far.  I know I have been because our weather has been so beautiful!  All of the leaves have turned so it’s super pretty, and it’s still warm enough to go out without a jacket.  November just doesn’t get better than that in this part of Canada.  Normally there would be snow and ice everywhere!  In the grand scheme of things, it’s probably a bad sign, but for now, I’m just going to enjoy it!  Speaking of November…  I have a couple of November group gift news to share with you!

November Group Gift @ Empire

Inworld members of the paid VIP group at Empire can pick up new group gifts each month!  This month they are offering their Magnolia Caged Boots (again, I have no idea if these are boots or sandals lol) in Khaki and Brown.  I am wearing the brown in my photo as it matched so nicely with the kale green of the dress I was wearing.  This group is 499L to join and as I mentioned in my post yesterday [HERE], there are also group lucky boards filled with fatpacks of footwear!

Empire’s Magnolia is compatible with…

  • Maitreya: Lara
  • Belleza:  Freya, Venus & Isis
  • Slink: Physique & Hourglass

November Group Gift @ Stories & Co. by Flowey

I know we have just had news last week about a freebie offered at Stories & Co. by Flowey [HERE], but it is group gift time too!  Flowey, which has a 100L join fee –  has been putting out gorgeous group gifts on a regular monthly basis for about 7 months now and leaves them up for new joiners too, so that when you join you can still pick up the older gifts too!  For November you’ll find the Chloe Sundress I am wearing in my photo today in a gorgeous kale green shade that is perfect for Autumn!

Stories & Co. by Flowey’s Chloe Sundress sizes…

  • Maitreya: Lara & Lara Flat
  • Slink: Physique & Hourglass

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/28/2016 – Rowena’s Designs

Happy Friday Fab Free! It’s that time of the week again where we get to introduce one of our many Fabulous Fab Free designers. This week I have the pleasure of introducing Rowena’s Designs! We don’t always get the chance to really talk about the awesome designers that generously participate in Fab Free, so I hope you’ve all been enjoying these Friday posts. Not only is it a great way to learn a little about each shop and what they offer, it’s our way of showing our appreciation for each designer. The Fab Free community just wouldn’t be the same without them.
RD Gifts 1Rowena Springflower of Rowena’s Designs has often generously participated in Fab Free events and the Fab Free group over the last few years, and we are delighted that they continue to do so. Her store has grown immensely in it’s relatively short time in Second Life.  Rowena’s Designs offers women’s mesh clothing that is as beautiful as it is affordable. The clothing style is what I would call modern, with enough variety that there is bound to be something for everyone. You’ll find shoes, casual, and formal attire, also most outfits will include a color change hud for added versatility. Additionally there is a wealth of opportunities to score FREE and or very inexpensive clothing. Rowena’s Designs has current store group gifts available at the back of the store. Simply head to the left and strait back from the store entrance. The “Designs by Rowena” group is FREE to join and will keep you informed about gifts, events, and new releases. You’ll see group gift boards, as well as Lucky boards, Mini Mania, and Midnight Mania boards right away.
RD Gifts 2Once you’re in the area, turn to your left and you’ll see more opportunities for gifts, including the fantastic Fab Free group gift exclusive which was previously blogged here by Love Trill. In this same area of the Rowena’s Desgins section of the store, you’ll also find some inexpensive outfits next to a couple of Riot boards. I’m not positive how low the Riot boards will take the price, but it would be fun to find out! So take a moment, bring your friends, and check out Rowena’s Designs. Pack your wardrobe with beautiful clothes by Rowena Springflower. Oh! I can’t believe I almost forgot, once you’ve joined the Designs by Rowena group, you’ll want to head upstairs and check out the several past group gifts that are still available. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Of flowers

Hello, once again dear Readers and welcome to the second edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas. I know, I know it’s probably not the snazziest of segment names but let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I bring to you the fantastically flowery Day of the Dead corset. This dramatic outfit is the new group gift from BlueMoon Enterprise and one that you can snap up for free just by joining the group. There is no sign-up fee so all you have to do is click and enjoy! With its color scheme of deep reds and blacks, this outfit is certain to be eye-catching.

I love the wonderful extras that come along with this gift. Together with the mesh corset, you will receive mesh garters, a mesh lace necklace, and panties just to name a few for starters. Aside from the panties, which comes in only system layers the corset, garters and necklace come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L). Don’t worry about anything poking out though as both the corset and necklace come with spiffy alpha layers. Now comes the fun part, as you can choose to wear the outfit as is or add a bit of flowery flair to it using the different flower attachments that can be found in the package. Points of attachments are the waist, neck, and hair (not pictured) and you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

If by any chance the outfit is not already dramatic enough for you, you can add the waist sash and the train. In this age of mesh that we all live our Second Lives in I must admit that I don’t have a lot of flexi things in my inventory but the train is so much fun and I love the way it moves and swishes behind you.

To tie the whole look together I put on the White Stag mask from Hextraordinary that you can get by playing the store’s gacha machine at the Salem macabre market and gacha gallows. It’s 50L per play and there are so many great masks up for grabs. I’ll probably be heading over again just to see if I can win one of the rare ones! And speaking of gacha, the hair pictured is from Analog Dog’s latest offering at The Epiphany. I’m a lover of odd colors and tints for hair and was very pleased that this one comes with a number of different highlights.

However, if you don’t feel like wearing a mask, the Day of the Dead outfit comes with its own makeup layer. It’s aptly named Sugar Skull and it’s eye-popping colors stand out even if, like me, you’d like to hide in the shadows for a while.

Well! I’m off to see if there are other costumes to sniff out. Wish me luck and I’ll catch you later!

Wondering what to do with that 150L inworld gift card you picked up at MOoH! as a group gift?  How about this snuggly belted sweater dress in blue that is on sale for 99L currently?🙂.

I used the gift card I picked up this month to pay for it, and it was free to me!  This group is 100L to join, but when you do, you gain access to monthly group gifts [October’s Group Gift Blogged Here], an entry to a group only raffle and a 150L store gift card!  Of course you aren’t limited to this item – you can use it on anything in the store, and in fact…  I used it once at an event that MOoH was participating in on one of their items so you aren’t even just limited to their mainstore!

This particular dress comes in XXS-L sizes with an extra set of shorter arm sizes in case your sleeves are too long.  An alpha layer is included for those on the system body!
