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.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • 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!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

See you kiddos later!

Nope, I’m Not Too Old For an Easter Egg Hunt!

Happy Easter

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  After all of Kat’s Fabulous Finds from the Easter Egg Hunt over at the Land of Rainbows, I journeyed to the sim to check it out for myself.  Right away, I discovered the colorful egg from Ascend, and excitedly teleported home to open my free prize…

A New Stan

… and then discovered the Ben Slim Fit Shirt package included only versions for mesh bodies.  At first, that was a big bummer, but I had been toying with the idea of picking up a mesh body anyway, so I decided to take the plunge and go full mesh.  After my transformation, the top fit my Belleza Jake body to a “tee” (ugh, even I winced at the bad pun – sorry).  It showed off my newly acquired muscles, and the texture featured realistic wrinkles.  The front is a solid charcoal color, and a cheery holiday message is printed across the shoulder blades. Best of all, it was completely free as a gift in the Easter Egg Hunt, which I appreciated after my spending spree.  The hunt runs until April 6th, so there is still time for you to “hop” on over and do some searching for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I’m looking forward to blogging a wider variety of clothing than I was able to show in the past.  It will take some time to get used to my new face, but at least Ripley didn’t run and hide from me when I put it on.  Hopefully, the best readers in the world will think it looks ok, too.  Until next time, Happy Easter!

!gO! Get your Easter Dress!

!gO! Spring

!gO! get your Easter Dress!

!gO! has out an Easter Dress as their newest group gift! I got the notice just today and couldn’t wait to go get the dress, especially when I saw the polka dots. Growing up, my favorite Easter Dress was a polka dot dress my mother made for me by hand, sewing it months in advance of the holiday with loving care. I wore that dress out even before I outgrew it, and this dress by !gO! brought back those fond memories.

To pick up the dress you’ll need to be a member of the !gO! group. It has a one-time join fee of 50L, but there are regular gifts to make it worth joining. And this pretty dress is worth the fee alone.

Available Dress Sizes:

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

Lumae Catwa Lips

Ostara’s Alter

I also stopped by Ostara’s Alter. The event ends April 3rd, so if you want any of the 5L hunt items (there are eggs with gifts hidden around the sim) you’ll need to hurry. I picked up the 5L gift item from Lumae and discovered a lovely Catwa lips makeup set. I included a picture of the hud above so you can see the lip palette. You might remember that Aline blogged a cute dress from the event in her post [here].

Enjoy your weekend, Fabulous Readers!

Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

A Hunting We Will Go

A Hunting We Will Go

When Easter falls early in the year, I get a bit let down to tell you the truth.  In my part of the world, it’s still all grey and slushy and I’m surrounded by general grossness.  When you think of Easter, you think of blossoms dripping from the trees, and being able to go out without a toque and mukluks (ha!).  However, I’m in chillsville.  In SL, however, I’ve come over all rosy and have found a cute little sweater and knickers combo that is great for lounging about while waiting for the Easter bunny to visit!

Hunting Basket Goodies

In my travels through the grid, I came across a mini hunt that’s taking place at Tatiko.  There are five eggs to find, each one containing a pretty little gift.  Search high and low, and pay 1L for each item.  I decided to pair this bunny adorned sweater with the lingerie I also hunted down for 1L at Tatiko.  What will you find there?

Sizes

  • Curvy (Top Only)
  • Fine (Top Only)
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (Knickers Only)

Oeuf Course!

Pardon my horrible French pun above (I can’t stop myself sometimes), but I have found lovely little eggy earrings to go with my Easter look.  I picked these up the other day while at Sorbet, and I must say they please me no end.  You can pick them up too by joining the group for 25L.  There are several other gifts available, including the dress I posted the other day.

Hoppy Easter, my friends!

A Bad Egg

A Bad Egg

Monday has arrived, but I’m well pleased that it’s a short week.  Easter is heading our way, bringing the promise of chocolate, jelly beans and that stringy multicoloured fake straw stuff that you’ll find under your couch six months from now, wondering how it possibly could have gotten there.  I found the perfect outfit for the Monday running up to a long weekend – a giant pastel-gothy sweatshirt with an evil looking bunny on it.  I dunno, it just seems a propos to me.

Sn@tch it up!

I post a lot about Sn@tch, I realise, but Ivey Deschanel just keeps churning awesome freebies out, and this one is no exception.  I was on the hunt trail again, this time for the “Dozen Good Eggs Hunt”.  Each participating store has six pastel-hued eggs strewn about their store, each containing an awesome prize.  I got the sweatshirt and skirt in one egg, and the glasses in another!  I have always felt an affinity with the pastel Goth style – it’s somewhere between the dark recesses of my heart and the part of me that likes skipping gleefully while eating large amounts of candy.   Anywhos, don’t forget to click on the hunt poster while in the store, so you can tp to other shops and pick up loads of fun free stuff!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Alpha Layers included

Read My Lips

One other fun and free little item I picked up on this hunt is the lipstick you see above.  I grabbed it in one of the eggs at The Little Bat.  There are loads of different colours to choose from in the applier, and they’re all very appealing.  This lipstick comes with appliers for Lelutka and Catwa, as well as an Omega applier.  Fun!

Now I’m going to go stomp all over this week, just like the evil bunny on my sweater would.

Ok, But First… Coffee

Ok, But First... Coffee

Morning Fabulouses!  Yeah… I can’t do anything before coffee…  Coffee always comes first, and a chocolate pastry never hurts either.  My springy look today is put together with two free hunt items by Poeme, and a group gift and a 60L special by Siss Boom.

Dressed by Siss Boom

At Siss Boom you’ll find these High Waisted Jeans in a dark and medium denim as a free group gift for being a part of their VIP group.  This group will cost you 500L to join, but there are currently 28 really nice group gifts to obtain with this membership making it well worth the fee.   These jeans are omega appliers, so they work fabulously under longer tops like the one I am wearing or jackets.

The lacy top you see me wearing today is also available at Siss Boom, and is currently on sale for 60L until Wednesday as a limited time offer.  It comes in the sizes listed below and also includes a rose which you can add to the chest.  I of course missed it completely and noticed it after I took the photo, but it’s cute with or without ;).

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody

Accessorize at Poeme

Poeme has 6 pastel easter eggs hidden in the gardens outside their shops for The FREE Dozen Good Eggs Hunt that just started yesterday! In two of the eggs, you’ll find the Mandala Turquoise Earrings and Mandala Teal Flats which accessorized my outfit today!  The Flats include Maitreya, Slink and an unrigged version.  Grab the Hunt HUD while you are there to TP to other shops participating in this fabulous free Easter Hunt with six prizes in each store!

Have a great Monday!

There are five color options for this gorgeous set, including the nude color shown.

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!
