Tis The Season

Tis the Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Can you have too many shoes? Nahhhh!!

Hello again! I said I’d be back with a second footwear post, didn’t I, so here I am! Are you loving all these shoes being shown, I sure have been. My shoe folder in my inventory is over-flowing. Now, I really could have put this grouping of shoes I’m about to show you, in with my first post, but I thought, since this post will be a one-stop shop type thing, I’d keep it separate. So, let me get right to it.

All the shoes below are WomenStuff group gifts at the ‘Stuff Lounge. So that means, they are free with your WomenStuff group tag on, which has a small L$50 join fee. Honestly though, with just these shoes alone, that fee is well worth it, not to mention all the other non-shoe gifts that are there to grab too. The name of the designer who provided the gift, as well as a description of which feet they work with, will be below each picture.

ShoeDayB_001
EMPORIUM – Abbot Heels – meant for SLink High

ShoeDayB_003
!!BHB!! CHRISTMAS TEDDY BEAR  SOCKS UNISEX – I know, these aren’t shoes…but come on, how cute are they? And, you do wear them on your feet 😛 Can be worn by Male and Female for SLink flat, TMP, as well as system feet.

ShoeDayB_004
C&F Dragon Queen Flats Slink or Regular Feet – Old Gold

ShoeDayB_005
Baro@ibp Gift Platform FlipFlops – for SLink and TMP flat, Bellezza, and Maitreya. I did not try them with system feet, but I don’t see why they couldn’t work for them as well.

ShoeDayB_006
WomenStuff gift by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes –  Cari – no feet needed with these, 2 shoe bases included with different heights.

So, let me reiterate. Head over to the ‘Stuff Lounge, and join the WomenStuff group, for L$50. You can then find the pictures of each of these shoes on the wall, and just click them to receive these lovely footwear gifts for free! See, one-stop and I got you all covered 🙂

Phew, what a great day. I’ve never seen so many shoes! I hope you all have as full a shoe folder as I do. Until next time lovelies, TTFN *waves*


The feet, legs, and pose behind this lovely footwear…

Feet and Nail Polish – SLink – Flat and High, as labelled below the pictures.
Skin – Lumae :: Jewel – 3 – Rosy

Pose – AUSHKA&CO-Asuka Pose Pack+Mirrored* (Marketplace store only)

Last Lucid Dreams of a Sweet Summer

Summer has passed into fall… but my last lucid dreams of summer have not yet quite faded. And thanks to the final days of the Women’s Stuff Hunt, you too can relive the final dreamer’s dreams of evening stars and soft flowers. With the hunting closing down on September 30th, though, you’ll want to hurry if you are going to find any gifts from your favorite stores.

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer

I love the chance to pick up new poses — especially those with ‘ready made scenes’ such as this “Lucid Dream” scene by Come Soon Poses. It includes all the lovely props, the single pose for your avatar (as shown above), plus the pink heart balloons that are just flying away out of Astrid’s hands (which you can’t see in the picture). This is a completely FREE gift from Come Soon Poses as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and well worth the searching for the die hard photographer (and for the rest of us too)!

Speaking of FREE gifts… check out my spunky skirt and sexy slip-on tube top from Sweet Temptations called September Morning! This is the September Group Gift from their main store and you can pick it up FREE with your Group tag until the end of the month. The group is FREE to join and there are only a few days left in September, so swing by and pick it up quick! The skirt is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, while the top comes in system layers as well as a variety of applier huds for mesh bodies.

Astrid’s fantastic purse is perfect for any casual or fun occasion and has a hold animation that works great with your AO and any other pose. It’s another one you’ll need to run to hunt for before the end of the month as it is part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and is the 1L Hunt Gift offering from Pixel Perfect Productions called Give a Hoot Purse. And it’s a hoot if I don’t say so myself!

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer [2]

I love trying on new skins and as I was doing my run through the Women’s Stuff Hunt, I found this ‘New-to-Me’ Skin store called LoveMe skins. Their Hunt Prize is this lovely skin in Sunkiss called Jessica. Once you find the little red shirt, the skin is yours for just 1L and includes a cleavage layer as well.

Now the Hunt gift does not include any appliers; however, there is a group gift up in the store as well. The group gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join and if you pick up the group gift it includes Slink hands and feet appliers (all skin tones included) so you’ll have those — very generous of the creator I think! That will give you two new skins plus the Slink appliers for your visit. You can also purchase any other additional appliers you may decide you need while at the store.

Last, but certainly not least, Astrid is sporting an elegant but every day set of jewelry that I think is a perfect transition from summer to fall — summery colors in a fall design! I love this Wine Autumn Leaves Jewelry Set by Cog & Fleur which is their Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift contribution and yours if you find the little red T-shirt for just 1L! Don’t miss out on the chance to add this dandy to your jewelry box!

What’s Black and White and Read all over…

….why, my blog post of course? *Waits for the groans to subside* Well, happy Thursday everyone! Trust me, my bad joke is not in vain, as this week, my blog post really is black and white…with a little bit of RED all over. I’m channeling my inner rockabilly, black and white movie star this week, both literally, and figuratively.

B&W1It all started with my dress. Before I go on, let me start by saying I got all my fabulous finds on the Marketplace, kinda. I’ll explain what the kinda means, a little bit later. Close-ups of each item are in the collage below. Oh yes, back to the dress. This gorgeous, retro coat/dress is from Angel DELUXE, and you can find it HERE on the Marketplace, for only L$9. It’s called the Poablack Rockabilly Coat, and it’s kind of like a wearable demo, except you can also get a demo for free if you’d like to try it on first. There are other versions of this beauty available, just not for the sweet L$9 price! It is mesh, and fits the standard sizes 🙂

My next retro-esque item is from [BE]lieve, and it is these sexy red heels I am sporting. When I saw the polka dots, while scrolling through pages and pages of shoes, I knew these were the ones. The aptly named Red Spiked Bow Heels are for SLink mid feet, and are non-rigged mesh, so you adjust their positioning if need be. I think they are a steal at only L$20, and the Marketplace link for them, is HERE. As an aside, the listing for these shoes says they are a 24hr promo only…but, I got them on Aug 5th, and as of today, they are still the same price. So they might be a permanent promo, or it’s just taking the creator awhile to change the price again, and if that’s the case, don’t wait to grab them if you love them like I do! I mean come on….spiked bows!

The last item I am featuring is my beautiful grey-toned skin. Now, this is where the ‘kinda’ comes in. You can find the lovely Film Noir Dame skin from Oddment on the Marketplace for a small sum of L$30 HERE. In the interest of full disclosure…I have actually had this skin in my inventory for many, many years, almost as long as I’ve been in SL. Do not let this persuade you that the skin is old and outdated…even after all this time, it is still beautiful. So no, there are not any appliers provided, however, a grey-tone is super easy to match, trust me! I almost did not need to use the ankle and wrist tattoo layers to blend my hands and feet, they were so easily matched. I have gotten a lot of wear out of Ms. Film Noir, and was super excited to see it still available, when I just happened across it recently, in a random search on Marketplace. Hooray!

B&W2

With a few more added touches (a few FabFreely priced, L$75 or under) to complete my outfit, I think I totally rocked my rockabilly/retro tv movie star look! Don’t you? How lucky was I to find a red phone booth for my main picture? LOL. With the fogginess of the W/L setting I chose, I felt like I was in a horror movie, with a monster, or zombie ready to pop out from behind the booth at any second! OK, now I need popcorn, this sounds like a great movie night! *grins*

OK lovelies, that is it for my post this week. I already have some thoughts in mind for next weeks post, so you keep an eye out next Thursday! Until then, TTFN.

Day or night…anytime is a good time to be a star!

My favourite part of being in SL is that I can pretend to be anyone that I want, or anything, at anytime. All I need to do is dress the part and poof..I become anything my little heart desires 🙂 . The other day…I wanted to feel like I was a 50’s starlet, with all the glitz and glam that I could ever ask for. Of course, I needed the right look, and that is where Cog & Fleur provided me with not just 1, but 2 looks that just scream 50’s movie star to me.

cog&fleur1

I’ll start with my daytime look. What movie star could pass up a day at the beach? I sure couldn’t, especially once I saw that the current free group gift from Cog & Fleur was a goodie pack of summer accessories in a fun cherry print, all I needed to do was join their free group. The gift includes my fabulous floppy hat, a tote bag with 3 holding positions, and the sweet bow and cherry earrings, I’ve included a close-up picture so you can see each item better. Now, all you really need to do is throw on a cute bathing suit and you are set. Or, if you love cherries as much as I do, feel free to take advantage of the special group discount for the matching cherry bathing suit, SLink med-foot shoes and sunglasses set. If you have your group tag on, you can buy it for 50% off of its normal price, which is a great deal!

After a day in the sun, nothing beats getting all dolled up and attending some fancy movie shindig. This time, I was covered from Cog & Fleur‘s 2 Midnight Mania boards. My mesh Satin Doll dress in Opal is on the group only board, and only takes 40 slaps to lock. It comes in the standard sizes in both regular mesh, and fitmesh. My lovely matching Vintage Deco Necklace and Earrings, also in Opal, are on the open to everyone board, and will also lock at only 40 slaps. I just love this dress and jewelry, my pictures really do not do them justice.  You will need your tag on for the dress board, and again, the group is free to join. Oh, and I should mention, in case you are worried about having to use a group space…there is a box of past group gifts available for all group members, for free. I have still not finished going through all that is in that box. It is well worth the group space, that is for sure.

cog&fleur3

Lastly, and I am sure some of you readers who have been around for a while may have noticed, I’m a red-head in this post! When I tried on the Alina group gift skin from [PUMEC], there was no choice. This lovely freckled skin with it’s perfectly groomed ginger brows would just not look the same with any other hair colour. How perfect is the eye makeup for my retro glam look? This skin actually comes with very pretty natural lips, which you can see in my beach picture, however, I needed to stick with my 50’s evening feel and added a layer of red lipstick. Alina comes with a multitude of appliers, so everyone with meshy bits should be happy. The [PUMEC] group is only L$99 to join, and there is at least one other gift out for you to grab, if not more. This is a pretty generous group 🙂 .

*sighs* What a lovely day I had. Not everyone can say they just decided to become a 50’s movie star and actually do it. This is why I love SL! Now I am off to find more lovely things to show you, and maybe become someone else entirely. Until next Thursday, TTFN.

Mad Mae and the Barber

There was a barber and his wife
and she was beautiful…
a foolish barber and his wife.
She was his reason and his life…
and she was beautiful, and she was virtuous
And he was naive.

Blogging soon!

The musical Sweeney Todd was released when I was in high school (don’t do the math, please). I thought the music was fabulous, and must have worn out the grooves in my Original Broadway Cast recording. So, when I saw a picture of this barber chair as a prize in the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown, I knew I had to have it. 🙂

Today is the final day of the SSH3, so I’m showing you a few more of my favorites from this unusual hunt. My outfit is Mad Mae by Cog & Fleur, and includes the dress, apron, and “tool belt.” There is an extra gift set of tools set out at C&F, so be sure to pick those up – I couldn’t decided between the scalpel or the bloody hammer, but I went with scalpel. This room is by Potpourri Designs, and includes the fireplace, rug, lamps, bonsai tree, and a silver music box. There’s even a ghost in the box, but she wouldn’t stand still for photos, so I put her back. This amazingly detailed barber chair and accoutrements (mirror, table, shaving items, and posters over the fireplace) is from [noctis]. Several other interesting and grisly items are included in the box, so you’re sure to have hours of fun shaving your friends… and enemies. 😉

Blogging soon!

Mad Mae comes with a notecard explaining her very sad tale of woe, so be sure to read that. It will explain why there’s a tentacle in my belt. Well, mostly. I’m not sure what the green and red splatters are, but I’m going with chemical spill, based on the test tubes hanging from my belt. My necklace is the SSH3 gift from Cake Fox Jewellery.

Blogging soon!

Here’s a shot of the outside of the “lair.” Plenty of room inside for plotting your dastardly deeds, whatever they may be. 😉
