Boho butterflies, and violet blooms…Spring is here, at least for a little while

Hello all you Fabulous readers! I hope your week has been as good as mine (I took this week off from RL work, so my week has been wonderful). To make things even better for me, it is feeling an awful lot like Spring in my neck of the woods, despite it being the middle of February only. I know we will have another bout of winter, that’s always the way the weather works, but for now, I am enjoying the sunshine, and thought I would represent the Spring feeling in my post for today.

It all started with a trip to *Glitter*. I was actually there to slap a MM board, but while looking around, I noticed a free group gift I had not picked up before. How I missed it, I do not know. The Macy Boho Long mesh dress comes in all the standard sizes, and the colour is just gorgeous. The group is free to join, just throw on your tag and click the picture to get your gift. There are a few other gifts out as well, make sure you grab them too.

I wanted jewelry that had colours just as pretty as my dress, and found the perfect set while wandering around The Free Dove. The Cocoa Island Violets necklace and earring set is from Lazuri, and is free for everyone. The stones and metal are texture change by touch, as well, you can resize them. You may actually remember seeing this beautiful set a few months ago when it was a group gift from Lazuri, as Astrid did a lovely job of showing it off HERE. I just adore The Free Dove, and if it’s been awhile since you’ve gone, then you need to go visit again. There are always great new gifts being put out, and I am sure you will find stuff to snap up.

My last 2 items that helped keep me in the ‘Spring’ mood, came from the sister stores of Bella Elephante, and Elelphante Poses. I saw that Elephante Poses was participating in the hunt for this round of Enchantment, and headed over to do a little hunting. The free hunt gift you will receive, when you find the hidden book, is a pose prop called Flutter. It is a mesh set of glowing white butterflies that has 5 built in poses. Funny thing, I didn’t realize it was a ‘rezz and sit’ type of prop, so I wore it instead 😛 Though you could easily take the poses out of the butterflies and create a version you wear for sims where you don’t have rez-capabilities. Just a thought. You will need to grab the hunt hud from the hunt poster at the store to be able to receive your gift. Just have it on when you find it, and you will get Flutter for free. The HUD conviently shows all the other stores participating and their LM’s as well. Once you have grabbed your hunt gifty, head across the way to Bella Elephante, and at their desk, you will see the board for the freebie nail hud I am showing off here, called Bloom, and all the colours are perfect for Spring. It is for SLink nails only, and it is free for everyone! Make sure you grab the Autumn themed set that is sitting right behind the Bloom nails too, they are free as well.

Well, I hope I have been able to inject some Spring into your day, as I know not everyone has been having such lovely weather. I’m off for now, but until we meet again, TTFN!

A little red, white and blue after Christmas.

Happy Saturday everyone, well, at least for those who are on my side of the world, as for the rest of you, happy Sunday! I have a few more gifties to show off, as well as the Jinx booth from the Happy Holidays Event @ the Wash sim. So I’m going to get right to it.

redwhiteblue1

If you are looking for some cute, casual clothes, the Jinx booth at the Happy Holidays Event is where you need to stop by. There are a few choices of capri’s for L$10 each, and tops, also L$10. As well, a pretty green gown with matching Santa hat, and a set of Antlers. The L$50 item is a pair of cute high-top sneakers. I swapped out the blue tank top that came with the shrug I am wearing to show these tops are separate pieces, so you can wear them independently, there is an alpha for every instance included. I have, of course, included a shot of the booth from all sides so you can take a quick look at everything. I know you all know by now, but this event ends at the end of the month, so if you like what you see here, run your booties down there!

I just so happened to find a pair of shoes that matched my outfit perfectly, as a free gift from Faboo.! When you land at the store, there is a giant Christmas card right outside the building, all you need to do is click on it, and these SLink high feet beauties are yours. I love the retro print on them. I’m sure this present won’t be out too much longer, so do not wait to grab them.

The pretty skin I am wearing is another Christmas gift, free for everyone, and comes from [Pumec]. Mira is her name, and she comes with 5 brow options, including a no brow, cleavage layers, a teeth alpha, as well as almost every applier you could think of. Just look for the present under the Christmas tree. There is also a tattoo present under the tree, and another skin called Li, so make sure you grab them too. Again, I am sure these are a limited time offer, so you better get over there quick.

*Edited to add – I must have had a little too much spiked eggnog the past couple days, because I had forgotten to take off the makeup layers I had been wearing in the post before this! Doh! The lips on this skin are still a really nice neutral with more of a pink shade, but the eyeshadow is a much brighter pink, with less of the dark eyelashes, still very pretty though.  Sorry about that, I’m putting the eggnog away now :P*

redwhiteblue2

Lastly, I had to show off one of the fun, free hairs from Exile. In the middle of the main store, there is a present that has a couple different hairs, including 2 for guys, all in this super cute candy cane texture. Even for a girl like me, who mostly sticks with black, it’s hard to resist the bright red and white colouring. I am wearing the Before the Rain version, but there are several different styles in this gift, so I’m sure you will be able to find one that fits you. I’m sounding like a broken record here, but….I am sure you won’t be able to get this for too long, so do not wait to head down to the shop.

OK my lovelies, I think I got everything I wanted to show off! I hope you have a fabulous evening, and I will see you all again soon. Until then, TTFN 🙂

A Kitty for Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I am currently sitting at home, taking a break before having to head over to my Mom’s for supper. We are having Mexican…..you thought I was going to say turkey, didn’t you 😛 We are actually having the big Christmas dinner tomorrow night, but tonight is Mexican food, and the Doctor Who Christmas special. So excited! But…..I thought I would stop in and show you a few gifts that were released as of Christmas Eve.

xmas1

First, and most exciting, for me at least, is the introduction of the newest Fairey Kitty family member, Pirilti. The name means Twinkle in Turkish. This gorgeous girl is the day 24, final gift, from the KittyCatS Advent Calendar. I’m sure, those of you familiar with the KittyCatS Advent from years past, already knew a special kitty was coming, and had to be as excited as I was to see what they would look like. Brilliant dark blue with white snowflakes, and a matching collar, she is so pretty 🙂 This kitty, unlike the Firestorm ones I’ve shown before, is not a perma pet, and will need food, so keep that in mind. As with all the KittyCatS Advent gifts, the cat is free for everyone, however, I am sure the calendar will not remain around for much longer after the holidays, so make sure you visit the store before it’s gone.

xmas3

A very welcome surprise yesterday, was a free gift for Curio group members (Gala & Rita Design Announcements is the group name), in the form of a beautiful new skin called Angelica. The group is free to join, and the gift is stored in notices. Once you open the gift, you will get this beautiful skin with golden eyeshadow, and deep red, shiny lips, in 6 skin tones, with 4 different brow colours each. Gala Phoenix has long been one of my favourite skin designers in SL, with her skins being my first purchase in SL, ever. I even still have those oldies, so I am always excited to see new faces from her. Notices are only around for 2 weeks, so do not delay grabbing this generous gift.

xmas2

Lastly, I wanted to point out my new sparklies, which, if you are anything like me, I am sure you were eyeing up. The lovely necklace and matching earrings set I have on is the free, group Christmas Eve gift from Maxi Gossamer. You get both a long and short version of the necklace, I am wearing the short, as well as all pieces in both silver and gold. The center stones are colour change through a pop-up window. The group is free to join, all you need to do is have your tag on when you touch the ad board. I am not sure how long this particular gift will be available, so as with the other gifties I’ve shown, don’t wait to go grab this.

Alrighty 🙂 That is all from me for now, on this wonderful Christmas day. I hope you all have had a day as lovely as mine. Until next time, TTFN *waves*.

The Unbreakable Ziggy ; Or, do Elephante’s like Nailpolish?

I’m baaaa-aaaack! I was thinking today, it’s been awhile since I have done a pose post. So here I go, lucky for me, Elephante Poses recently released their September VIP Group gifts. I used a few HERE, from the Never Say Never gift pack, but I wanted to also show off the Unbreakable pack that is also available.

elephant2

The //elephante poses// Unbreakable *September 2014 VIP Gift* has a total of 6 poses, the ‘on my knees’ one above, and then the 5 standing poses below. I think it’s a great mix of poses, really versatile and able to be used for so many looks and styles. The group is L$300 to join, but with monthly gifts of this quality, it’s well worth the join fee, especially if you are a pose collector like I am. The store also has a subscribo for those of you who do not have space for a group, and there is a monthly gift given away from there as well. This month is a cute set of 3 poses called Pompei.

elephante1

In the elephante family, is a subscribo gift from Bella Elephante. The Bella Elephante – Ziggy *September 2014 Subscriber Gift* is a really fun, and bright, set of SLink nail appliers for hands and feet.  Just head next door from Elephante Poses to the Bella Elephante store and slap the subscribo to join. If the gift is not sent to you right away, click on the wall file holder beside it for redelivery. I’ve included a shot of the vendor picture so you could see all the different colour combo goodness from these appliers.

elephante4

So there you have it, another pose post, with some nails thrown in! LOL. OK fabulouses, I hope you all have a wonderful evening, or morning, or whatever time of day it is when you read this 🙂 I will see you all again. TTFN!

Vampires Will Never Hurt You

Hello fabbies, I hope you are having a great week so far and are enjoying yourselves with whatever you are doing. The title of my post might seem a little odd at first.. but soon all will be revealed!

Firstly, the hair that I am wearing is the new SL Free’s and Offers Group Gift by Alice Project. Kimberly comes with a HUD that has several different shades for you to choose from. You can find it in the gifts and prizes section of the store. Be sure to join the SLF&O Group and wear that tag to claim the gift!

Being the beginning of a new month, there are a lot of new events and group gifts around the grid. The OMGacha event at Jersey Shore began on the 1st of July and is choc-a-bloc full of amazing gacha prizes for you to play for. If you are getting withdrawals from your gacha addiction (much like I am!) then this is definately the place for you! The Cochella Bound Hippy Luv Dress and Flowerchild Hair cluster are from the Le Fil Casse gacha. I always love flowers in my hair and I know I will be wearing this all the time! The adorable Kawaii Kokeshi Gears Doll Lunchbox is by Epic and the little Grey Seal you can see peeking over the rocks is by Alchemy. He is a cuddle

I am also showing the new group gifts from the One Word event. The Floral Bracelet by Pr!tty is just so delicate and beautiful. The Nail Appliers by Bella Elephante are alot of fun and are based on Alice in Wonderland. In this picture I am wearing the Cheshire Cat appliers but there are others to choose from as you can see from the close up of the HUD in the next picture. You can also see the Kawaii Moon Necklace and Ring that I won from the Atomic Gacha at OMGacha in better detail. Like my Fangs? Hey even Vampires enjoy the beach sometimes.. even if we have to wear factor 10,000 sunscreen! You can find the Realistic Vampire Fangs by Cain on the Marketplace!

Taking a break, laughing at my own jokes.

MissLTHeydra_001

So, I decided to take a little break from Summer Fashion Festival posts, and show you what I have been wandering around SL in, and as a matter of fact, I showed little glimpses of a few of these items in my last post HERE, so I figured I might as well show them outright for you all 🙂

PicMonkey Collage2

It all started with a trip to The Cosmo Sales Room that started its new round this past Monday. I saw the Alyce Skinny Pants – Fatpack, and my jaw dropped. A HUD with 20 different colours/textures to choose from to fit any mood, of which I have chosen a few to show you, and for only L$70, now that’s a great deal in my eyes. Now, I will warn you, the sign says they are rigged mesh in the 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, but when I opened my box, it turns out you get 2 pairs of fitmesh pants. One that fits sizes XXS-L, and another in an XL size. I do have my shape in sizes XXS-L, so I tried each size out, the standard L would need a little adjusting, but other than that, the other sizes fit great. I don’t have an XL shape, so I did not get to try that one out. These pants are also materials enabled, and the effect is awesome! I don’t want to take them off, really.

MissLTHeydra_003

The next piece to my outfit puzzle came from a tip from a good friend. She sent me a link to a Facebook post about a hidden gift from Heydra.  The Emily Tank Top is hidden in a purple skull and crossbones, somewhere in the store. As blue is a favourite colour of mine, I couldn’t resist. I lucked out and found that baby in under a minute. Many years of doing hunts here in SL has paid off I think 😉 This gift is free, but if you really like it, there are many other colours available in store for only L$69 each, so still a great deal.

MissLTHeydra_002

The same lovely friend who told me about the Heydra gift is also how I got ahold of this gorgeous chunky necklace, and corresponding bracelet and earrings. She saw the  Mel  Necklace at ::Poised::, and thought of me, so much so that she bought it for me. Well, she was right, I love it, and I would have easily parted with the L$50 this lovely necklace costs, no question. To get the matching earrings, bracelet, ring (not shown) and bellychain (not shown), you have to buy them separate from the necklace, for L$75 for the group, but they make such a great addition to my jewelry staples collection, I’m sure you will see them on me again.

PicMonkey Collage

The colourful manicure I am sporting, with the matching pedicure, is the June subscribo gift from Bella Elephante. The Popsicle SLink nail HUD’s are free, all you have to do is slap the subscribo board in store, and it will be sent to you. I’ve included a shot of the HUD so you can see all the delicious colours available, I can see why it’s titled popsicle, makes me want a Rocket. Remember those? Yum!

MissLTHeydra_010

As I like to end on a high note…Miss LT just put out a new group gift, for SLink High feet. Gosh..sometimes I just kill myself *giggles*. Anyways…the shoes, focus Calle…the Miss LT Nanda mesh platform for SLINK HIGH FEET are texture change, the heels and straps can be changed independently, with 14 colours to choose from. Again, you can match whatever mood you are in. I wanted bright, so the lime green was perfect! The shoes are free with your group tag activated, and the group is free to join. I know all you shoes lovers need these, so go get them!

OK, I think I covered all the goodies I’m wearing. I hope you like them as much as I do. I guess I better get back to the Summer Fashion Festival post 3 I am working on. Until next time, TTFN!!
