Corset-ed Fairy

Corset-ed Fairy

I decided to put my roleplay hat on… or rather my wings on! Because I found an amazing little FREE in-store mini hunt at Tiar that is not to be missed. Right now if you bunny hop to Tiar, the creator is hosting an in-store mini Easter Egg hunt where you can get free goodies. There are eggs full of prizes all over the store. You have to be within 10 meters of the eggs to get the goods, so no cam-touching, but its well worth the hop around the store.

I picked up this FREE Princess Corset in all the standard sizes as one of the hunt gifts, as well as these FREE wings in black in one of the eggs. There were many many more wonderful gifts… so jump over to Tiar and fill your basket!

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

Go! to !gO! for 200L In-Store Credit Today!

!gO! !gO! !gO!

Apparently Loki has this hair-brained idea that camp-outs are a good idea! Personally I think he’s crazy! But at least he agreed to stop by !gO! with me this morning to get the 200L in store credit that is available TODAY ONLY as a moving gift to Group members. You’ll need to wear your group tag and click the terminal at the entrance when you arrive.

Yes, you heard right! !gO! has moved locations, but this is good news to dedicated !gO! customers. The new !gO! location promises less lag and better quality and as a giftie to group members, we are being given 200L in-store credit FREE (the group tag is 50L if you are not already a member) for purchases today. !gO! is high quality clothes, and not just for women… they have modern and fantasy for men and women both. I picked up a cute set of pj’s. Loki picked up a pair of jeans with an attached kilt. Yes, I totally teased him about it being a skirt… that might be how we ended up camping out against my will!  >.<

Country Boho & Feathers

Country Boho & Feathers 2

I was born and raised in the country… and so the latest FREE group gift from The Beautiful Ones just stole my heart, and I knew I had to show it to you. For a mere 25L the TBO group tag is yours, and then you can have this fabulous Lupe Boho cardigan and top. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as a generous assortment of fitmesh sizes… including Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya. The top is one piece for easy wear, and I paired it with my favorite jeans for a classic country look.

Country Boho & Feathers

I wanted some pretty jewelry to go with my new top, so I hopped on the marketplace and happened across a happy find… this lovely necklace and earrings set called Feather by Miam Miam. It had just the delicate boho look I wanted, and is texture change for three metal colors (silver, gold, and copper). For only 10L, I think it was a steal of a deal.

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

A Rogue Smoke

A Rouge Smoke

I decided to take a smoke break today, especially after Loki stole my spotlight yesterday… and all because he shirked responsibility and left me holding the bag. The cat food bag that is! Lucky for me, I was able to pick up a set of amazing pipes called Rouge Pipes in 3 colors at [since 1975] as a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift. They are shaped like lipstick applicators, there are three different colors in the box, and they have a gentle smoke particle as well as a soft glowing ember for realism.

I needed a great outfit… something sultry but equally mysterious, maybe also a bit Gothic… and found just what I was looking for at GAALL. This Mayfair Outfit is a dress and comes with the matching slink boots. What I love is that you also get a color change hud for six color choices for the outfit. This outfit is a real zinger too as far as fit. It is mesh and comes in not only the standard mesh sizes for fit, but also Maitreya, Physique, Venus, Isis, and Freya. And you get all this for just 1 little Linden as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt.

Now, I will forewarn you, I did find the dress to be a bit short for my modest tastes. It’s definitely long enough to cover your assets… but I paired it with a set of leggings to suit me. You could certainly wear it alone, though!

A Rouge Smoke 2

While I was at GAALL, I noticed an Easter Egg that was selling for only 1L as well, and realized it was part of the Easter Hunt… and was pleased to discover a trio of beautiful dresses inside! They are African inspired dresses with a mesh main dress in standard sizes, and Maitreya applier sleeves. I wore dress option 1 which is a really nice green design. There is also a blue print, and a black and white zebra print in the egg if you find it.

Twisted Anarchy

Twisted Anarchy

Astrid was busy feeding the virtual cats (we have two, one is named Frenchie… yes seriously). So I slipped out the back for a bit of hunting and some sight seeing. Thankfully I didn’t have to steal the shirt off anyone’s back to do it in style… because the Twisted Hunt is FREE and full of excellent men’s gifts — like this FREE Brigadier Anarchy Shirt from Horr Menswear. I nabbed this after finding the twisted cube in the store before heading out to catch some wooded adventure all manly style.

This shirt comes in all the standard sizes with a well fitting alpha, and is one piece in a very detailed mustard color. It is rugged and goes well with a pair of jeans and boots. I slipped on the men’s bracelet from Chop Zuey that Astrid hinted about a few posts ago. It’s one of the current men’s group gifts. It’s FREE if you don your group tag. The group fee is 350, but the gifts are regular, and the men’s jewelry is always quality.

Twisted Anarchy 2

Here is a back view of this shirt… so you can see why it is aptly named the Brigadier Anarchy Shirt. For detailing and style this good, it’s hard to believe it’s a FREE gift.

The Twisted Hunt runs until March 31st, so don’t wait to make your way to Horr Menswear to do your hunting.

The Butterfly & The Python

The Butterfly & The Python

My alt-er ego Loki and I hit the Cart Wash Sale this morning… and what we found is smokin’ hot! I call it the Butterfly and the Python… and I think all we need is some Godfather music in the background to give us that proper old style Hollywood movie feel!

I picked up the 50L Mix and Match Formal Blue dress set from the Vicarious Youth Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. You get four skirts and four blouses for your 50L… that’s just a touch over 6L per piece! and they are mix and match and gorgeous! I had a fatpack of R.icielli – LEXIE High Heels in my inventory and discovered that there was a blue pair and donned those. Perfect match! When I double checked the marketplace, I was pleased to find that this fatpack is still available for the low price of 97L. Since there are 21 pairs of shoes in this fatpack, this makes each pair of shoes less than 5L each, and well worth your Linden!

Loki picked up the Python Jacket and shirt combo from the Dark Water Designs Cart for only 50L. This jacket comes in standard mesh sizes as well as two fitmesh sizes with an alpha layer for a perfect fit. The advertisement shows it with jeans, but Loki paired it with leather pants and mesh gloves, and it gave it a sharp, dressy look that is super sexy.

The Butterfly & The Python 2

I wanted to give you a close up of the Python jacket and shirt combo… which is one-piece for easy fitting and wear. The rivet buttons, zipper, and texture are amazing. Loki also tossed on a men’s group gift which you can pick up from Chop Zuey still if you stop by the main-store and wear your Chop Zuey group tag… the Dragon Flight Necklace for men. It is FREE with your group membership. Membership is 350L, but the frequent and quality gifts make it worthwhile, and there is also a men’s bracelet out at the moment for members.

The Butterfly & The Python 3

Have you joined the Third Life Group yet and gotten any of the great goodies? It is FREE to join and I stopped by Ecco Jewelry this morning where I found that the creator is offering these beautiful Butterfly Mosaic Earrings FREE to Third Life Group Members. The gift includes a hud for three metal colors: gold, silver, and bronze, making this a generous and well detailed FREE gift indeed.

VYTAMixMatchFormalsBlue (50L)

Here is a copy of the Vicarious Youth advertisement for the mix and match formal in blue… I wanted to be able to show you the different skirt and top options available for your 50L. For that small amount of Linden, you really are getting a nice variety of options on a quality item that allows for versatility of styling.

Love Hurts So Good

“You took my heart and you held it in your mouth
And, with a word all my love came rushing out
And, every whisper, it’s the worst, emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now…”
― Florence Welch

There’s no denying it. Sometimes… love hurts. And I’ve found the perfect outfit for that perfect date… or if you want, to rail against the injustice of Cupid’s fickle arrow. Just take your pick!

Love Hurts So Good 1

Entice was incredibly generous with this latest group gift: their Hurts So Good dress in 3 wine colors (you get a color change hud) with a set of matching Heels (also with a color change hud) called Wild Nights. The group is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1 little Linden, but that will be immediately refunded to you, making these gorgeous items yours totally FREE.

The dress is a winner all the way around, coming in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes and Maitreya and Slink fits too. The shoes will fit Slink, Bellleza, and Maitreya feet. You just can’t go wrong with gifts this good.

Love Hurts So Good 2

To top off the theme of “Love Hurts” I grabbed up the matching Love Knot Necklace and Earrings group gifts at Chop Zuey that is out FREE for group members. The group will set you back a one time fee of 350L, but the gifts are frequent and plentiful and always of amazing quality. It’s a group that is well worth being part of for the outstanding gifts.

It’s Legen… wait-for-it… daire!

Designer Showcase FullHey there Fab Free! As always I’m happy you’re here. I’ve got some pretties from Designer Showcase to share with you this post. This round of Designer Showcase has some FREE group gifts from Legendaire and Chop Zuey. In addition, Empire put out their March group gift and it just happens to match perfectly with the gifts from Designer Showcase. I love it when various gifts come together to make an awesome outfit.
Designer Showcase Gifts The gift from Chop Zuey is this uniquely pretty blue and gold bindi. This truly unique piece of jewelry is perfect for adding some glam to an outfit. As with anything from Chop Zuey this FREE gift is highly detailed and textured. It can also be easily re-sized with a click. To get this great gift, head over to Designer Showcase and join the Designer Showcase event. The group is FREE to join, so no reason to hesitate on this.

Also a FREE gift at Designer Showcase is this chic sophisticated outfit from Legendaire. I really like the cut and style of this outfit. It’s fully mesh and comes in several sizes. The top also includes a color/texture change hud making the outfit very versatile. Don’t forget, you’ll also need your Designer Showcase tag to pick up this generous gift.

I love wearing red shoes with dark pants. These adorable buckled pumps are the March group gift at Empire. The shoes come in a Maitreya specific fit, a Slink fit, and a Belleza fit. Additionally there are cute little bows that you can attach that are across the straps and toe (not shown) if you want to add a little daintiness to this already cute shoe. Finally, there is also a color change HUD that allows you to change the color of the shoes/bows by choosing between 12 colors, and you can pick between 3 choices for the color of the buckles. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens. Considering the quality of the group gifts so far, I can honestly say that I think the fee is well worth it.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
