Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold

I’m dreaming about the South of France again… Those enormous sunflower fields that are bordered by something wonderful (usually a field of lavender), and contain one solitary olive tree.  I’ve closed my eyes just so I can hear the sound of the cicadas, and smell the wild herbs growing all about.  And, oh how hot it is.  But just the right kind of hot… Maybe it’s time for a real life trip back to Provence!  Hmmm…

The Advent

Though I’m thinking about summer, and feeling the warmth of it all around me, my mind is firmly planted on the season of Advent.  Why you ask?  Because Applique Chic have an Advent calendar going for July!  Yep – every day a new FREE gift!  And if you miss a day?  No biggie, just head back over there and pay 10L for anything you missed.  It’s a steal!  The offering for Day 6 is this beautiful graphic sundress that put me in the mood for getting lost among the flowers.  Head over to Applique Chic to grab your own!

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

A Little Glitter

Glittered Up

I found sled rides!

I found a sim with sled rides! Of course when I saw these two beautiful horses in their festive wear near a fence I hopped out of the sleigh and went over to say hello. Sled ride instantly over… pictures ensuing! But that’s okay because I have gifts to show off to you!

Have you been keeping up with Advents?

I’m showing you two Purplemoon Creations Advent Calendar Gifts in this post. The first I want to mention is my gorgeous plaid dress with its gold trim. For just 50L for the group tag, you’ll be getting a months worth of FREE gifts, including this beautiful dress.

The Kari dress is day 6 and comes in the following sizes for your convenience:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink

You can also check out a post about three other Purplemoon Creations Advent gifts that Love blogged [Here] if you are still on the fence about rather or not to leap into this advent calendar!

Glittered Up 2

More from Purplemoon.

I love that Purplemoon lets you pick up any day you missed and doesn’t limit you to just the day of the calendar that you are on. So if you haven’t stopped by there, be sure to also pick up day 5, which is this gorgeous formal necklace and earrings set, which I matched with my holiday outfit look. As mentioned before, you’ll need the group tag, but remember, you’re getting 24 days worth of gifts.

You haven’t forgotten Alice Project Have you?

There is still a FREE to all Alice Project Advent Gift hair out every day at Alice project. But never fear! If you miss a day, like I did, you can still pick up the previous gift for a mere 50L. I was really in love with Zahara and didn’t want to do without it. This pretty mesh over the shoulder style was perfect for my look, and for 50L it didn’t break my bank to pick it up. Plus I picked up today’s Free to all gift while I was there!

And Eyebrows!

I am in LOVE with these eyebrows! I’m not sure which day it is on the KittyCats Advent Calendar, maybe 5 or 6? But I know that the FREE alaskametro “Glimmer” and “Glitter” holiday eyebrows for mesh heads is in there! No group is required, just click the calendar days for FREE.

You’re going to LOVE this gift as much as I do! You’ll be getting two sets of applier eyebrows in a multitude of colors. One palate is “glimmer” for a little more subtle shine, while the other palate is “glitter” for more sparkle. (I’m showing you glitter.)

What you get:

  • “Glimmer” — Various Shades of Silver, Gold, and Bronze (6 total)
  • “Glitter” — 6 Shades total including Silver, Red, Purple, Mauve, Green, and Teal
  • Appliers for: Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega

And while you are at it, consider stopping by Esgaroth for that sleigh ride. The sim really is beautiful!

From Day to Night

I was doing a little writing for FabFree last night, when someone dropped off a package at the door. You know I couldn’t help but give it a little shake! I never did figure out what was inside… but I sure tried! It was one of those “Wait to Open” kind of things!

But this fun pose is one you don’t have to wait to open… thank goodness! I picked it up from the Eternal Dream Poses advent Calendar for just 10L. If you are in the group its FREE (you can also join the group for 200L and then all 24 advent gifts will be yours FREE as well as many future gifts and offers!).

From Day to Night 1

Once I was done trying to trying to have a premature peek into my giftie, I remembered that I had some fashion finds to share with you. I stopped by Christmas on 34th Street earlier this week and found four piles of presents under four different trees (look in the four corners of the sim!) and put together my usual mix and match look! My go to full get together evening starts out with this classically lined suit by [LaVian&Co] called RedLabel Under the Boardwalk. I love the wide belt and striped lapels. It came in all the standard sizes as well as fitted mesh… and if you look in the picture below you will see that you can also take the jacket off because it includes a stunning Maitreya applier top in black for additional versatility. Can you believe all this was only 10L as a great gift under one of those trees? Score!

My luscious jewelry was another 10L score by Beloved Jewelry. This Mishka Set would be perfect under any gal’s tree! The detailing is fabulous on the necklace and earrings and better yet? Color change! Yes! Can you believe it? And again, for just 10L!

From Day to Night 2

I wasn’t done with my gifts yet though. I also picked up this sexy updo by Analog Dog Hair called Enja. It comes in two parts with the bun on top and the curls around the face that fall over the shoulder just so. For 10L you are getting a full fat pack… that’s hard to beat! And this sexy style is perfect for day or night either one!

I knew I needed something for my feet, so I snatched up these stylish White Satin Stilettos for Slink feet by Lowen, another 10L find under one of those Christmas trees.

My pose in this picture is yet another Eternal Dream Poses advent giftie! Yours again for just 10L or FREE with your 200L group join. (Plus I needed some hot cocoa after all that gift snooping!)

From Day to Night 3

Had you noticed how in my first picture the top under my jacket was white? I just love it when I can mix and match! Though the [LaVian&Co] suit comes with a gorgeous black undertop (shown in my second picture) I also nabbed this trio of lingerie by Blacklace from under one of the trees. For just 10L you get all three colors in the gift box and I found that the white looked especially nice under the Black and white suit.

My pose in the picture above was another 10L gift you can find under one of the trees. Snatch up this sexy set of stands by oOo Studio called Winterkiss. The box includes three poses for Second Life photographers.

So, I packed a lot into that post! But I hope you found something you liked. I’m going to get back to the hot cocoa and snuggle up with some blankets by the fire!

All that glitters is gold, and is even better when it’s free!

goldy1

Hello lovely ladies and gents. I have a kinda quicky post, as I don’t want you to miss out on a few of the items I am featuring. They are time sensitive, and awesome! LOL

goldy2

I call this my ‘Gold Party’ outfit. As I feel like I can head out to any kind of party like this, not just CHristmas parties, but anything, there are so many other holidays being celebrated around this time of year, you really have your pick. How conveinient for me that I was able to put this outfit together in one spot, and for free! My dress, shoes, mani and pedi are al group gifts available at the FAD Fashion Event. The Holly Dress in gold, also available in red, is from Vowette. It’s mesh, in the standard sizes and fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, Belezza, SLink, and SLink Hourglass sizes. I think everyone is covered here! The gorgeous Helena Heels, also in gold, for SLink high, are from *MSS*. Lastly, my nails are sporting a slightly edgy, yet elegant look from Tashi, in the Diamond Heart appliers, for Belleza, Omega, and SLink. I love the black background, as I’m a sucker for dark nails. Can you believe, all you need to do to get all of these, as well as a few more gifts, is join the FAD Fashion Event group, for free, and then click on each gift box. Yeah, really! You have until December 23 to go and grab all these goodies.

goldy3

On to the quicky part. This beautiful skin I am modeling is courtesy of the Advent Calendar currently running at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. She is called Noellia, and I think she is just beautiful, especially with those cheekbones! Don’t fret guys, there is also an advent calendar for you which will be giving out a male skin called Noah. Each day, 1 box will have a string of lights around it, and as long as you have your group tag on, which is free to join until January, or when the group hits 30K members (whichever comes first), you just touch the box, and you will receive the gift for free. As well, there might be an extra gifty or 2, or as with today, 3! If you miss out on a day, don’t worry, you can grab the past days for L$75 a box. Which is still a pretty good deal. I am wearing today’s gift specially, Noellia with black brows, hence the quicky part, if you want this for free. Oh, and a warning, the gift is usually switched to the next day about an hour or so before midnight SLT. So get there as soon as you can.

Before I leave, I also wanted to mention a little tid bit about my hair…right now, at Elikatira, the Black Friday sale is still going on. That means each hair in her store is only L$50 per colour pack! The sale is on through the end of the day tomorrow, December 6th. I picked up this totally cute Kristen hair there, and may or may not have added another 9 new hairs to my hair folder. I’m not saying. Knowing how big the love is for hair deals around here, I just wanted to make sure you all knew about it.

OK all, I going to run now. I hope you like what I had to show you today. I sure had fun putting it together! Until next time, TTFN 🙂
