The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!

cartsale_001

There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

You have until September 16th to come on down to the Wash and fill up your closet!

Your Friday Hunt Report

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

End of Summer

Coming soon to FabFree

Summer is winding down and I’m just not ready to let go of my cute summery wardrobe, especially now that I’ve added this adorable outfit from Daisy’s Closet.  It is available right now as a group gift (free to join) and includes the sweet tank top with eyelet lace trim and cut off black denim shorts.  If you are addicted to applier clothing like I am, you will be happy to find not only system layers, but Slink, Maitreya, and Omega appliers as well.  The outfit is very detailed and blends sweet and sexy perfectly.

Coming soon to FabFree

The White Watch from Swallow makes the perfect, simple accessory for this outfit.  It is a group gift, and the group costs $15 L to join, but there are so many great gifts out, making the fee more than worth it in my opinion.  Among the group gift is a multi pack of mesh eyes.  Moira is shown here wearing tone 1.

Coming Soon to FabFree

I am in love with these sweet, and free, pineapple print flats from G Field.  They are sized for both Slink and Maitreya flat feet, and you can also find a mid foot version in store!

I hope you all have a wonderful end of summer!

Love,

Moi

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Glitterati Garden

Glitterati GardenIt’s Friday and I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’ve been away due to Real Life getting in the way, demanding thing that it is, and I feel like I was gone a month. It is nice to be back, consequently I’ve got a lot of great things I want to share with you. There are lots of great group gifts out this month, this elegant black gown is the August group gift from Glitterati. The gown from Glitterati comes in standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha layer. One thing I noticed right away is the way the gown’s texture seems to change color depending on the lighting, which I think adds a touch of whimsy to this pretty gown. The Glitterati group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This gown alone is worth the join fee in my opinion, get it while you still can! Glitterati Garden 1One of the great things about a solid black gown is you can add pops of color with your accessories. I love the style of this earring and necklace jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The FREE set is called “Arabesque” and has a lovely filigree look to the metal parts, complimented by bright teal drops. The “Arabesque” set is the August group gift at Indulge Temptation. Included is a hud so you can re-size the jewelry to suit your avatar. There is a one time join fee of 50 lindens for the Indulge Temptation group, however I think the jewelry set is more than worth the fee.

Now that we have the gown, and the jewelry, here’s something lovely to go underneath. One more awesome August group gift, This lingerie set is from Maniac Store.

Maniac ElephanteThere are several FREE group gifts out right now at Maniac Store. This black lace lingerie set is just one of them. The set is really pretty on, and comes with tons of appliers as well as system layers. The list of appliers includes TMP, Banned, Maitreya, Lolas Tango, Lolas Muse, *Linc, Lush, Lena, Perfect Bum, Brazillia Doll, and Slink. Needless to say there are lots of options for wearing this sexy August gift. The Maniac Store does have a one time fee of 10 lindens, however as I mentioned before there are several gifts out as well as lucky chairs. Lastly, like the 3 poses in the above photo? These too are an August gift, this time from Elephante. You’ll find these fun static poses in the Elephante subscribo for FREE!

Your Friday Hunt Report

hunt SL final addicted to applier signGood Morning Fabulous Hunters! It’s hard to believe that Labor Day (the sort of official end of of the summer here in the USA) is almost upon us. There’s lots to be happy about in the hunt world this weekend here in the last bit of summer vacation.

So take a gander at all these fine hunts and find the one that’s just right for you. Your bulging inventory will thank you for all the free (or very nearly free) stuff before it’s time to head back to school.

Days of magic

Hello Fabulous Folks! I’m getting my fantasy fix today at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and I love it.

Days of magic

In RL, I happen to love Cosplay and have a few costumes that… yes… I wear. But there’s so few places to wear them. I mean… they’d toss me out of the Home Depot if I came in dressed as a Druid or something. So that leaves Second Life and trust me… I take advantage of it. I’ve been wearing the “Lisissandra” dress and jewelry from UNA non stop since I won them at the Carnival. I’m showing the Lisissandra top in the black and silver with the silver arm bands, the blue and white skirt with the silver belt, the black leather collar and bracers, and the silver headdress.

Days of magic

It’s such a gorgeous complete look I had to play till I won them all! The skirt is fit mesh but it doesn’t come with an alpha layer that I could find. But any slim skirt alpha will work nicely. The belt, collar, and bracers all come with a HUD to change the metal colors and the Headdress has a HUD to change the colored stones.  All this for only 50L per play!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival runs until September 12!  Here’s your taxi to the event -> Let’s GO!

** Oh… and that guy…? He was dead when I got there….

I’m beachy keen, thanks for asking!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I thought I’d show off a little beachy fun, as I realized that’s it’s been a few months since I did a post in a bathing suit! For shame!! Wasting all this lovely summer time without a good bikini photo shoot. Well, that is now remedied, let me show you what I got!

beachy1

The Groovy bikini, matching sarong, as well as jewelry that I am wearing, are all Marketplace L$1 promo’s from Iffyta, and are all texture change with provided HUD’s. For L$1, you get the mesh, 2 piece bikini, necklace and both bracelets, as well as a pair of shoes, which I am not wearing, HERE. For another L$1, you can get the matching sarong, HERE. All of these pieces come with an 8 choice texture HUD of super fun and colorful retro prints. I really had a hard time choosing which one to show off. If you love the texture choices, you will be interested to know, that there is a pair of stiletto ankle boots, and a fun little sun dress that are also in this Groovy line, and are both only L$1 as well! You just need to look at the bottom of the pages I linked, and you should see the links for the other items. Really, you should just check out the whole store page, as there are many other free and L$1 promo’s available, not to mention many other under L$75 finds. These promo’s are a limited time special, so don’t wait too long to look them up.

beachy2

One of the reasons why I chose the pattern on bikini that I did, was because of the shoes I wanted to wear. These pink and wood beauties are from KoiKoi, and unfortunately, the owner of KoiKoi is closing the store’s doors as of the end of the month :( Luckily for us shoe lovers, she has decided to reduce the price of all those beautiful shoes. For only L$50, you can pick out any single pair of shoes in the store, such as the gorgeous Filament Pink clogs I am sporting. If you can’t decide on a single colour, and just love them all, the fatpacks are set to only L$200, and these are all way more customizable with an included colour change HUD that lets you change individual parts of each shoe. Either way, I was a happy shoe-camper! As I said, you only have until Aug 31, so get your shoe-loving booties over there.

My other reason for choosing the texture on my swimsuit, was how well it went with the beautiful skin I am wearing. The Niska in Sangria is another lovely skin offering from one of my favourite skin stores, Lumae. As part of the most recent Lazy Sunday, you can snap up each skin tone for only L$75 a piece. I happen to be wearing my favourite tone, Rosy. As always with Lumae’s Lazy Sunday items, these will be left out for an extended time, and actually, you have until Aug 29 to grab these, as Lumiya Rae happened to put the skins out just a little bit late! We won’t fault her for that though, will we :) These skins come with every applier you could possibly hope for, and the orangey red shade of the lipstick and eyeshadow is so pretty, how could you not want one of these skins? The only thing missing…is an actual sangria!

I wonder if I could get a waiter out this far on the beach? *Waves her hands and helloooo’s* Alright lovelies, I am going to see about getting myself a fruity drink. I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again, this same time next week! Until then, TTFN.
