What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

May angels lead you in

Im all angelic today, inspired by the one I love and who is always in my thoughts.. and well Cupid had wings..

I thought the 10L Demure dress in the Pixeldolls sale would go well with my angelic look…

So this is how I’ve been travelling the grid today.

Rockberry have some special 50L Valentine skins up for sale called Flirt.. and they also come with their new cleavage enhanced options! Woot!

It comes with a really delicate heart lipstick shape which I think is really cute. The skins also come without the cleavage option should you prefer that.

Plastic Flowers have these two cute 25L skins called Luffly available right now aswell as other make ups at their store.

This shows the pale tone

This is the tanned tone.

The lingerie worn in both pictures is called Rosa in Beige from Love Lace and is part of their discount section for 50L. Don’t forget to slap their subscribo and check the notices to get the Neopolitan lingerie gift that I blogged yesterday.

Poetic Colors make some of the most beautiful eyes in SL and right now they have a new set of freebie eyes called Aurora. They are a really striking blue colour.

Outside the store they also have a free set of eyes for people under 30 days in a yummy green colouring.

50L Friday is going on again.. and I picked up a couple of bits that struck my fancy. Clawtooth have a Valentines hair on offer called Velvet Moon which is just so adorable and comes with both the red Im wearing in the picture and a pink colour too.

The Poppy Valentine lingerie is by Whippet & Buck and is also on the 50L Friday list. There is also a unisex blue shirt there for 50L. If you want a list of stores, just tp to one of these two stores and click the 50L Fridays sign for todays list.

The Sapphire Blue Careless Whisper is this weekends 1L special for women at Aqua.

There is also a 1L outfit for the guys there too so drag your male friends along and treat them too.

If you go over to Clothes Horse, there is this Vintage pinup styled lingerie set for 10L in a yummy candy pink.

You also get stockings in the pack but Im not wearing them in the picture. Be sure to check out their 50L sale while you are there.

Here are a few more bit from the Tainted Love Hunt that starts at Yellow Jester and runs until 28th February.

This is the Wilting Heart Shrine from Julia’s Collection. The poem written behind really touched a nerve with me and I personally think this is probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen created in SL.

The Object of my Affection picture frame is the prize from Show me on the Doll… and again, its a really beautiful piece of work.

This stunning Lonely Hearts bed is the prize from [XIII] and is just breathtaking!
