Full Circle

I love 25L Tuesdays! Especially when the goodies are versatile like they are today! On a Lark has out a beautiful new dress in lots of colors for only 25L each that comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fits for Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass. This dress is a classic roleplay dress… BUT! It looks awesome as a go to dress for everyday wear as well… which makes it perfect for my inventory. And for the 25L price tag? I bought it in lots of colors!

I also stopped by Luas where my 25L bought me this awesome handbag and back-back set. You get both the handbag shown as well as a backpack (not shown) for your single 25L price. There were 3 other colors/designs, if the one in the picture above doesn’t suit you.

Full Circle 2

Chop Zuey also has out some beautiful new gifts that I wanted to share with you, and I really fell in love with their Circles Set. You can pick up the Circles Necklace in Gold as a group gift if you are a group member (the group fee is 350 but this gives you access to lots of regular group gifts). The earrings are a courtesy gift and FREE to all under the FabFree board. Just pay 0L and pick up the pretty matching earrings completely FREE๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Train Side

Train Side

September has begun, which means cooler weather. I was looking for a great pair of jeans and Love pointed me in the right direction. If you hurry you can still grab the men’s August group gift which is set out at Prey. I’m not sure how much longer this great pair of washed out jeans will be available, so don’t delay. Hurry over and pick up your FREE jeans in all the standard sizes. The group is FREE to join so this gift won’t cost you a single linden.

If you’re a member of Chop Zuey, you can get one of the most recent men’s jewelry gifts, the Ole Glory Freedom mens bracelet with your group tag. There is a pair of matching men’s stud earrings as well (not shown). If you’re not a member, the membership fee is 350L, but the gifts are generous and high quality, making the fee pay for itself after a few visits to the main-store.

Happy grid hopping!

Last Exit to the Weekend

Last Exit to the Weekend

This morning was chilly and it made me think that spring was having her last fling before summer. And of course today is Friday… that last exit before the weekend. I have a few special treats to get you through the day until Saturday blooms, though๐Ÿ™‚

If you’ve not yet started the Runway Perfect Hunt, you should consider picking up this dress by Loordes of London. I really like the unique style of this one piece mesh cover up (which has the look and feel of layers). It’s long enough to be a dress, but short enough to be a shirt. You could easily pair it with your favorite jeans or capris. It will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time for the black and white prim. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, and Physique.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Chop Zuey has out a new group gift called Harlow Creed… a texture change ring. I have always really loved cameos, but this one also appealed to my sense of Gothic flair. So I nabbed it up to show off to you as well. It offers 3 metal choices and several color choices for the cameo part. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting regular gifts to offset this fee, making it well worth your fee.

Last Exit to the Weekend

And since it *is* Friday, I decided to scout out the Fifty Linden Friday deals… and discovered that Livalle was offering a set of maryjanes that I really fell in love with. Previously this pair of shoes was offered in the color mint as a gift (Calleja showed them to you Here). If you missed out on that great offer, you can pick up a four pack of the shoes today. You’ll get cherry, navy, pink, and white in the box for your 50L. These shoes fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

A Shot in the Dark

A Shot in the Dark

The Runway Perfect Hunt is proving perfect for filling out wardrobes… both for the gals and the guys. Which is always welcome. I stopped by Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning while making my way through some of the hunt stops, and picked up this pair of Ares pants, which is the creator’s contribution to the hunt. The jeans have a biker/metal/rock feel with the black and leather and the chains in the back which had me searching for a rock venue to take my photo for you. They come in all the standard mesh sizes, and like all Wicca’s Wardrobe items, are of an excellent quality. They are well worth 5L and then some.

I paired my new pants with the latest group gift for men at Chop Zuey. These FREE group gift bracelets called A Shot in the Dark offer 2 metal choices (silver or brass) and 4 leather choices (black, brown, yellow, and blue). The Chop Zuey group does have a one time fee of 350L, but the creator is generous with regular group gifts for loyal members (for both men and women), making this fee worth it in the long run.

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!ย  >.<

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!
