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!

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.
