Tie Dye & Wave

Tie Dye & Wave

It’s so twisted! But definitely awesome! From June 1st through the 30th… creators have gathered for a good cause! At the Twisted Summer of Love event you can shop and benefit the American Cancer Society… while also hunting for 58 twisted cubes with FREE goodies!

I found a really rad hair that I fell in love with. The FREE gift from The Stringer Mausoleum called “The Wave” is in one of the twisted cubes around the shopping area if you hunt it down (there are decoys!). It comes in this luscious berry color! I used my included LuLutka white hairbase and tinted it to match and voila!

Then did a little shopping and found this really fabulous tie dye shirt by Roped Passions for only 75L at the creator’s booth. I’ve always been a fan of tie dye and this fit the bill (and matched my new hair). There were several other colors to choose from, as well as several outfits that you can purchase and the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer society. That’s a win win for everyone!

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.

Tennis Anyone?

Tennis anyone? I put together an outfit that made me feel like going out on the courts today!

Tennis Anyone? 2

I have to say, I am loving the gifts at this round of FaMESHed! I picked up a few that I think you’ll definitely want to add to your wardrobe. These items have a luxury sports feel to them that are perfect for that “country club tennis court” look. Best part is… all these gifts are FREE! Just join the FaMESHed Group and click the boxes at the booths.

I picked up my fat pack of amazing locks at Damselfly. This style is called Francie, and if you pick up this FREE gift, you get every color available in the gift.

My earrings are the luxury earrings gift from the Noche display, and I also picked up these great sunglasses from Kitja. The sunglasses gift come in silver or gold. Both of these accessories, like the hair, are FREE gifts.

Tennis Anyone?

The last (but not least) item I am showing you is this sporty looking V-neck dress from Coco Designs. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh and Maitreya. It too is a FREE FaMESHed gift.

Blue Sweater Morning

Blue Sweater Morning

April mornings are still chilly here in my part of the world… so sweaters and blankets are a must. Thankfully, a new-to-me store that I found saved the day… errr morning… with a beautiful his and hers FREE gift!

Currently, if you stop by the ::K:: main-store, you can join the group FREE and pick up the FREE group gift. Inside the box you will find these beautiful blue his and hers matching sweaters. The sweaters come in two styles… one with a white inner blouse and one without. There is only one size inside and they seem to be fitted mesh. There is another group gift out for members as well, a pair of very nice red men’s trousers (not shown in this post).

I’m looking forward to warmer spring weather, but for now, I’m content to curl up with a warm sweater and good company… even if that company is my own alt-er ego😉. Enjoy your day!

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.

Spoil Yourself Wicked

I’m going to tell you how to spoil yourself wicked today! By the end of this post, you’ll have an inventory full of new outfits, and a new hair too!

Mina is generously offering a new VIP group gift right now, that is a must have. I’m sporting it in all of the pictures below. It is FREE to group members. The group is 200L to join, but your fee gets you a monthly group gift for both men and women. This gift comes in a full fatpack of colors, regular female fit, busty fit, and a flat chested male version as well! It’s spot on for style and for a full fatpack, your 200L is worth it for this one hair alone!

Spoiled Wicked 1

The Women’s Stuff Hunt has started! \0/ It will run from March 1 – March 31, so you’ll have time to hit all the stops (it’s a massive hunt!) if you start now! I started at Wicked and am sporting their 1L gift in the picture above. It is this sassy full outfit called Liz and includes the top which is a shirt and jacket one piece combo, the shorts and the bracelet. The outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits! To get this pirate booty, just look for the little red T-shirt. You know the drill!

Spoiled Wicked 2

While you are hunting for that little red T-shirt at Wicked… make sure you also look for a little glow stick. If you find it, you’ve found the 1L gift that Wicked is giving for the Sour Pickles Hunt! Like the Women’s Stuff Hunt, you’ll have until March 31st. In the picture above, you can see another hunt gift that is the full kit and caboodle. You’ll get the skirt, top, and bracelets in your gift box for that 1L little sum. It too is all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits!

Spoiled Wicked 3

Since you are already at Wicked, why not pick up the FREE group gifts? The group is FREE to join, and currently there are three very generously gorgeous group gifts set out for group members. Above, I’m wearing the FREE Hannah jumpsuit in black. It includes a color change hud for the belt which offers many color change options for the belt itself and a separate menu to change the color of the buckle to add versatility to this black jumper. This one piece outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Spoiled Wicked 4

If you are in the mood for romance, you’ll want to pick up this group gift called Arya Flower Dress in white. It is a softly feminine floral print dress that is also a FREE group gift at the moment. A while back, Juli showed it to us HERE in army green. So if you missed it then, or already have it, now is your chance to own it in this pretty flowery print!

Spoiled Wicked 5

There’s one more giftie to show you! Make sure you pick up the Olivia sweater in blush with its color change hud. The hud offers a myriad of color change options for the shirt under the sweater, changing the color of the cuffs and collar of the shirt underneath. You can also hide the shirt part entirely if you prefer. Like the other group gifts, this gift is FREE to group members.

If you take a peek around the corner at the main-store at Wicked, you will also find a mini midnight mania board that is FREE to slap, as well as two FREE lucky letter boards. There are just so many ways to spoil yourself at Wicked!

Jacket Weather

Jacket Weather

Good morning! I stepped out for a stroll and realized it was jacket weather! Of course jacket weather is my favorite… because it means I get to break out my favorite jackets!

The good news is, that if you hop over to BYRNE right now, you can slap the subscribo for a FREE jacket of your very own! This great black and white jacket in its geometric design goes great over applier or system layer tops and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It went out to subscribo members the other day, so if you are already a subscriber, hopefully it is in your inventory. If not, just check the history on the subscriber to get this goodie!

There are two versions of the jacket in the gift. The black version I am showing you, which is mostly black with white highlighting… OR! A white version which is much more prominently white with black strips instead. So you are bound to find your fit and your favorite jacket.😉

Chain Your Head, It’s Cute!

Snapshot_001Hiya Fabulous Folks! Yesterday I blogged a few of the  home furnishings Anniversary gifts  [HERE] that you can find for FREE at this new round of Shiny Shabby, and today I am back to share a few more :)  Most of my outfit today is made up of freebies that I found on the streets of this awesome round!

Starting from the top and working my way down…  I am wearing the Entwined Melody Hairstyle that I picked up as a free gift in a full fatpack of colours.  You can find the Jellybean Headchain as a freebie in front of the ieQED shop and it includes a texture change hud.

My Puff Sleeve Top and Boyfriend Jeans are both made by COCO.  I purchased the Puff Sleeve Top at the event, but these amazing boyfriend jeans are the free gift you will find at COCO’s display.

Last but certainly not least, are these super hot Congo heeled sandals made by Essenz!  They have newly released the Congo style in Maitreya and Slink versions for this special round of Shiny Shabby and are offering their peach as a free gift.  Bet you’ll want to go back and pick up more colours though😉
