I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

A Random Rant

A Random Rant

Have you ever had someone take you on a tour of their house?  It’s one of those events that can either be very illuminating – giving you an insight into the way people live, their taste and what gives them comfort, or it can be the most soporific event you can take part in.  I have been on far too many house tours, sometimes visiting the same house 3 times because I’m too polite to point out that I’ve visited before.  The point is that even the events that could be interesting are often turned into something tawdry and self-important.  I am therefore, not going to give you a tour of my house, but instead stop blathering and get straight into this cute outfit.

What Was that About?

I honestly don’t know why I was ranting about house tours – I may or may not have been given one recently that sent me into fits of yawns, and just had to get it out of my system.  Anyway, it’s time for a new Amitomo Gacha!  You all know how much I love the looks they put together in their affordable gachas.  This outfit can be found at Kustom9, and in my often scientifically followed method, I only pulled 3 times and got this top and skirt (the third was another pretty top – I didn’t get the rare this time!).  Being in charge of a budget-conscious blog often has me truly wondering about the price-effectiveness of a gacha, and I always come to the conclusion that Amitomo is worth it!  At 69L per pull, you’ll always end up with a full outfit in just a few tries.  This outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies.   This round of Kustom9 is running until June 10th!

Good luck!

Wind Ready

Wind Ready

I would most likely be aging myself if I started ranting about the hot pink and purple wind breaker I had when I was young.  There was this whole thing about being protected against the wind that made its way into fashion the form of pants and jackets, and I just want to say that that was a *moment*.  Apparently, that moment is kind of making a comeback since I’m feeling pretty wind protected today!

My Fave!

Every month, I wait with bated breath for the latest Amitomo gacha release at Kustom9.  I’m never disappointed by the colourful offerings, and this month is no exception.  People often ask me if I’m paid to review them, or if I’m given these gachas, but I can solemnly swear that I am not.  I REALLY do love them and pay my own Lindens to get them.  I always play them with the bargain hunter mentality – as few plays as possible, and see what happens.  In just three pulls (I SWEAR!) I got the rare hair, this cool purple dress and the awesome jacket (sized for Maitreya) to go over all.  At just 69L per pull, you’ll inevitably walk away with something that you can make an outfit out of for very little dough.

Cool Girl Style

Cool Girl Style
There’s nothing quite as cool as a patterned, oversized blazer.  I think you kind of have to be a “patterned oversized blazer” type of person to make it work, and today I have become that person.  I feel powerful, cool, and even like I can take on whatever in this look.  Do you feel like you need an injection of cool-girl style?  I’ve got just the item for you!

Kustom Made

You guys know me and Amitomo.  If they’re making it, then I’m totally into it.  It’s my absolute fave thing to play their gachas, because they are always so pretty and well made, and whenever you play, it’s a given that you’ll end up with a full outfit.  I headed over to Kustom9, and played only once (I do it for FabFree science, I promise) and ended up with this sweet outfit!  At just 69L per pull, you really can’t say no to a full outfit (sized for Maitreya).  It also came with an HUD to change the shorts and top colour, so you’re really ending up with several looks in one.  If you’re feeling particularly lucky, try playing a few more times for the Rare hair.  I didn’t get it, but you just might!

Good luck, cool girls!

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….

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

Winding Down

Winding Down

The weekend may be slowly coming to a close (alas!), but I think I still have a bit of fun left to squeeze out of it.  Time to put on some comfy but cute clothes, hang out on the porch and enjoy the sunset.  Hey, that counts as partying nowadays, right?

It’s the Kustom

As is my wont, I made my way to this month’s round of Kustom9 and played all the lovely gachas (I refuse to acknowledge this as a problem!), but the one gacha that to me is always super worth it is Amitomo.  You really get bang for your buck when you play their gachas.  At just 69L per pull, it’s hard to come away with anything less than a stellar outfit!  In just two pulls I had a top and skirt combo that is ready for all types of porch chilling.  If you’re lucky, you might just get the rare hair!  As always with Amitomo, their items are made exclusively for Maitreya bodies.  Which will you win?

Keep it Sparkly

And because I’m a bit sad that the weekend is ending, these sparkly tears I’ve got on my cheek from Insomnia Angel give my outfit just that little bit of glam drama I needed.  They’re completely free, no need to join a group.  Just head on upstairs and you’ll find a confessional full of free gifts that are fun, surprising and a bit surreal!

Farewell, sweet weekend.  You will be missed!

Fly, Fly, Away

Once I get you up there

You may hear
Angels cheer, ’cause we’re together

Gacha Good

Yep, I’m dreaming of the heavens today…time to spread my wings and float!   Anyyyywhoos, It’s that time where I get all excited about the fact that Amitomo has a new gacha out at Kustom9!  They always put out super cute and very playable gachas.  By very playable, I mean that it’s super easy to put an outfit together in just a few pulls.  I only played twice (seriously, I promise) and got the cute top (check that rainbow detailing around the hem) and awesome jean skirt.  At just 69L per pull, this is a great gacha to play!  You might get lucky and get the rare hair too.  This gacha set is sized for Maitreya.  Head on over to Kustom9 to play, you’ve got until September 10th!

Song is stuck in my head again!

A Slice of Heaven

A Slice of Heaven

It’s one of those days where all I want to do is go out, buy ridiculous amounts of objects that I don’t really need, and then finish with a massive bowl of ice cream.  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  I think everyone has their own idea of heaven, but that might just be one of my favourite iterations!

Gacha Good

Kustom9 is in full gear right now, and Amitomo are back at it with their newest gacha.  I can never resist playing the Amitomo gachas, because they really are a great deal.  You usually walk away from 1 or 2 plays with a full outfit, and with a bit of luck you often land the rares.  This has been my experience at the very least!  I promise that I only played this gacha three times (at 69L per pull) and I landed this full outfit (the dress, jacket, bags and ice cream, all with HUDs to customize the bags and ice cream, as well as the hand colour) as well as the rare hair.  In my books, that’s an awesome deal!  Plus…just look at it, how much more late 80’s early 90’s appealing can you get?  This fun outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies and there are loads of different versions of the outfit you could end up with!  Check out the vendor pic below!

Good luck!

Welcome June!

Welcome June!

The month of June is upon us, dear readers!  The beginning of a new month is super exciting for us bloggers, because it means that many shops put out their new group gifts, and there are new hunts, events and activities going on.   I’m celebrating with some awesome newness, so let’s jump right in!

Happy Birthday!

Amataria is celebrating a birthday, and in true SL style the gifts go to us!  How awesome is that?  I grabbed this entire lingerie set (bra, knickers, stockings and skirt) over there for free, no need to join a group!  Excitement! There are also a set of lacy cuffs and matching collar in the box, so go check it out today, because it will only be up for a very limited time (til June 3rd!).
