Christmas at the Beach

Christmas at the Beach

Yes yes, it’s time for Christmas and cold weather etc etc.  I do often think about our readers from the southern hemisphere though, who celebrate Christmas (or don’t!) when it’s hot, and they all head to the beach.  Is that what you do way down there?  Inquiring minds want to know!  If you’re heading to the beach to celebrate, or you really just want to forget about all the cold Northern winds, then do read on because we’ve gotcha covered.

Muy Bueno!

Bueno’s latest group gift is a pile of fun.  This pink 4×4 car is perfect for standing beside, looking cute and taking photos, HOWEVER, it is also fully driveable and I had a blast causing havoc on my sim.  I still have some neighbours shaking their fists at me (sorry guys!).  You can get yours for free by joining the Bueno group, also for free!  How can you possibly say no to that?

And the Outfit, Now!

I picked up my driving outfit over at ADN by joining their free group as well.  This cute strapless, belted dress will go with all sorts of different looks, and the jacket that comes with it too!  Together they gave me a bit of a bad girl in her car vibe (is that a thing?) and it all fit perfectly together with the theme for me.  In the box, you’ll also find a pair of BOM tights to go with.  There are a whole bunch of cool gifts to grab at ADN while you’re at it!

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Hey FabFree! As I promised yesterday, I am back with another cute free gift I picked up over at the Beauty Sales Event. I’m still opening boxes today and honestly, there’s a ton of good stuff here.

This great little Jacket and crop top is destined to become a favorite in my wardrobe. This is the ‘Nala Jacket and Sweater’ from M.o.w, a new-to-me designer. I love this casual little combo! You get a HUD to pick one of four denim colors and eight top colors.  This is such a good solid build too. Nice details and perfect texturing. I’m absolutely checking out their main store if this is any example of the items.

The Beauty Sales Event runs until the 11th of December, so don’t delay. It’ll be on us quicker than you think!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Sizes – XXS- L

With such a massive world to explore like Second Life, it’s hard to keep up with all the Hunts and fairs and events happening all over the place. Happily, I stumbled across one I had never seen before and it turned out to be a bonanza of gifts and awesome shopping!

The Beauty Sales Event is a monthly event opening on the 21rst of the month and closing again on the 11th.  Since I’m new to this event I don’t know if each round is so packed full of gifts or if this is a special occasion. But I gleefully bounced around the booths picking up allll the free gifts.

Like this simply gorgeous sweater from Hilly Haalan. Most of you know Hilly Haalan is a major designer on Second Life and with clothes like the ‘Jazzy Sweater’ you will see why. This sweater is so perfectly made you can zoom in and still see details and there’s the perfect fit, even when moving around. Plus, and here is where I get all giddy, you get a HUD with 25 choices to change the color of the main sweater, the cuffs and trim, the buttons, the leather bits around the buttons, and even the cords holding the buttons! That is a LOT of choice! There’s also a resizable scarf with 25 choices of color/patterns as well. A-maze-balls!

The Beauty Sales Event still has about 2 weeks to go so you have some time to get over there but don’t miss it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a coupe other gifts to show off ’cause I couldn’t pick just one.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

Wishing for Winter

Wishing for Winter

It’s the time of year in my world physical and virtual that I start to wish for snow. Perhaps because I almost never get to experience temperatures cold enough for snow where I live, I find that I long for that story-book white snowy winter. I am also so ready to break out the winter wardrobe. Thank goodness Second Life has me covered, here I get my snow, and a pretty stellar closet full of winter clothing. Speaking of clothing, this outfit is the most recent group gift at Vooh.

Vooh

There are actually several group gifts available at Vooh, Group Gift 76 is the most recent. I really like the look of this all-in-one outfit. The jacket, sweater dress, and undershirt are all one piece. I love that it makes me appear as though my hands are tucked warm into my pockets. Also, the outfit includes matching boots, and a beret (not worn). The jacket/sweater dress combo has a color change hud with several solid color options for the main part of the jacket, the dress, the undershirt, as well as the metal parts of the jacket. Additionally the hud will allow you to tint each part, and adjust things like glow and materials. The boots and beret have their own similar customization huds with matching color choices. The required Vooh store group has a join fee of 50 linden, which if you ask me is well worth it.

Jacket/Sweater Dress Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer
Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza (Freya, Isis/Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Fitted Mesh, TMP

Early Snow

Early Snow

Ok ok, it’s still November, and Fall is still in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, I know… The thing is, up here in the frozen marches of the North, snow has become quite prevalent for many of us Canucks!  Time to face up to the realities of the marshmallow world!  Maybe we can even try to enjoy it a bit?  May as well give it a try!

To the Cart Sale!

The Wash’s Cart Sale is still raging on, and there are so many pretty and affordable goodies to grab.  This lovely outfit all comes courtesy of Poème!  The coatdress comes in several different hues and will only cost you 49L.  The little winning bow is an optional add on, but I thought it was just too cute to leave off.  I also grabbed the matching beret for just 10L, and the gorgeous black boots for only 39L.  Plus, the earrings are a free gift at the booth too!  You’ll certainly be ready for chilly weather after you visit!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

The Wash Event runs until November 25th!

Keep warm!

Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

As I’ve mentioned before I may not celebrate what at least in the U.S. is considered a traditional Thanksgiving, but I do believe very much in practicing thankfulness. I am thankful for autumn weather, for the beauty of the season, thankful for love, and for friendship. Honestly, the more I think on it, the more I have to be thankful for. That is a very beautiful and fortunate thing. I also am so thankful I have the opportunity to be here doing something I enjoy, sharing awesome finds with all of you.

Clawtooth

For this post I have some bitter-sweet news. Clawtooth is closing for good at the end of the month. Bubbles Clawtooth, the designer behind the store, sent out a lovely sentiment explaining their appreciation for all that Second Life has given them, and their carefully made decision to move away from Second Life and on to other projects. What does that mean for us? The entire Clawtooth store is on sale at 70% off from now through the end of November. I am not at all ashamed to admit I spent a few more lindens than I needed to picking up some of the lovely hairstyles that will be gone forever once Clawtooth closes. There is also a free holiday hairstyle with no group needed, and I saw at least one group gift. No group is required for the sale, and gachas are included. Most of the hairstyles appeared to be priced between 45 – 66 linden per color pack, and gachas were averaging at 25 linden per play.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gifts

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to show off a few of the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. As I’m sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join and there’s a full (continually updated) group gift list here of all the free gifts. I’m wearing the Fab Free group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins, the gift choker from West End, and the jacket/shirt combo gift by Northern Sky Creations.

7 Deadly Skins

The free Fab Free group gift skin at 7 Deadly Skins is a cute freckled female skin called Genie. She comes in a “lights” skin-tone pack with BOM layers, and Omega appliers for body and head.

West End

The free gift at West End for Fab Free group members is their “Simple Little Choker.” It has resize scripts, and a color change hud with 17 color choices.

Northern Sky Creations

Northern Sky Creations has a comfy red and black plaid jacket with a black shirt under it as a free group gift for Fab Free members. The top and jacket are all one piece and come in the following sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy.

A little warmth

A little warmth

 

It’s starting to get cool in the mornings, a sure sign of Autumns arrival. Plus, just about everywhere, pumpkins and ghosts and those enormous bags of candy in the stores. I have to admit I am having a great time finding, and sampling, the bags Juli thinks she’s hidden around the house.

Speaking of finding treats, you will be hunting down a piece of candy for the Boo! Bunny Hunt to get your treat. This is the men’s gift from Ink Blots and it’s just one Linden plus some hunting. The warm jacket and sweater come as one convenient piece making dressing easy and quick. The details are of good quality and move well once it’s on. Something a lot of men’s wear struggles with. The Boo! Bunny Hunt runs until October 31rst so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL
