Last minute pick ups

Hey, guys, I’ll just be upfront and say that the items being showcased today are time sensitive so instead of babbling on like I usually do, let’s get right down to the nitty gritty shall we? First up are the February group gift skins from Deluxe Body Factory. Yes, you read that right, skins as in plural. There are two skins up for grabs this month, Zinnia in honey tones on the left and Nkechi in ebony on the right. I won’t even try to choose which one I like best as both are striking faces and have those little details (freckles and facial moles) that I’ve come to appreciate from Deluxe Body Factory. Both gift packages include:

  • One system skin
  • Omega head and body applier
  • Alpha layer to hide system eyelashes
  • Brow shaper

These beauties are not the only gifts available at Deluxe Body Factory, however, as there’s also Charlie skin for child avatars. Group members will also have access to an array of Lucky Letters and Midnight Mania boards. The group joining fee stands at 299L but group gifts are frequent and there are a lot of them. Speaking of which, you should go grab these skins soon as February is about to end!

If you’re read Pru’s wonderful post {HERE} you’d have been clued in about the sale going on at Besom over the weekend (no, I wasn’t really trying to make a hair pun but there it is). Well… she just told me that it’s still going on (teamwork ftw!)! At the time of writing this post, individual hair packs are still set to 50L! Don’t think anyone would be surprised if I confessed that I’ve almost bought the entire store as I’ve been a big fan of Besom’s effortlessly careless hairstyles and the vivid tones that they come in. You’ll be shopping for a good cause besides as proceeds will go to the veterinary expenses of Spirit the cat, click {HERE} to find out more about Spirit. Don’t lag on your shopping though for how long this sale will be on as it was supposed to end on Sunday. I’ve certainly no complaints about this change, though!

Let’s go buy this feline one more life guys, it’s a wrap for today!

Gaming therapy

Gaming therapy

It’s been a long, long day.

The type of day where all I look forward to is getting home, kicking off my shoes and popping in the first game within reach. Some days I dither about in large open world sandboxes or participate in cover based shooting or just appreciate the graphic epic-ness that is the summons in Final Fantasy 15. Whatever it is, it’s nice to stop ‘adulting’ for a while just as it’s always nice to find (free) merchandise in Second Life that harkens back to my gaming roots.

A gamer’s needs:

Headset to listen to epic game music with plus operating mic so that you can banter and/or yell at teammates (can we please try not to aggro the giant horned fanged thing 300 levels higher than us?!)  during multiplayer…Check. Snacks…Check. Console controller…Check. Granted I wouldn’t usually wear such a thing around my neck but if it did come in a cute necklace version like the one from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. pictured above, I’d probably be the first in line. Speaking of .{PSYCHO:Byts}. and cute, quirky gamer themed accessories the headset, pixel lollipop, and controller necklace is all part of the Gamer’s Heart set that is out from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. (can’t you tell that I’m having fun typing out the name of this store?) for the XOXO Hunt. These beautifully crafted accessories are unisex (there’s a longer version of the necklace for men) and permissions are set to copy and modify so that you’ll be free to make as many copies as you want before adjusting the position and size of these accessories to your avatar. Truth be told I converted this set when I first saw it on the prize list and it was a stroke of good luck that I manage to snag it for free. For more on how to get in on the fun that is the XOXO Hunt take a peek at my post {HERE}.

Etched in your skin.

Another prize that I badly wanted and was lucky enough to get on my second round of the XOXO Hunt is the Lovesick tattoo from Songbird. It’s been a while since I’ve indulged in some body art and these beautifully detailed hearts shaped facial tattoos is not only a good way to dive back into that but is great for keeping in step with the season. I love how it looks freshly etched into the skin, with some of the larger hearts leaving red trail marks on the skin. The gift package includes the classic tattoo layer as well as an Omega applier that can be used for all mesh heads that are compatible with the Omega System. If you want to learn more about the Songbird store there’s also a helpful all in one customer hud included with the prize as well. As with all gifts in the XOXO hunt, you can either win this great prize for free or purchase it from the vendor for 50L. The XOXO Hunt is running until the 25th of this month.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to see if my gear’s up to snuff to finish off this Leshen. Catch you later guys!

It’s all skin deep

Last, but hopefully not least… I’m here for Free Skin Day!  Better late than never, right?  So let’s jump right in.

It's all skin deep

First up, are two nice FREE skin packs from Curious Kitties. The #1 is the Azil Skin – Winter Spirit shown on the Moon skin.  Each Azil free pack comes with eight skin tones from very light to this nice midnight blue-ish tone.  Skin #2 is also Azil but it’s the Light Sparkle Skin. I liked the soft look to the skin but the Wisp skin with it’s leopard spots and swirls just made me fall in love. The Wisp skin is also in the Winter Spirit pack just with the frosty face paint.  These skins do not come with any appliers nor could I find appliers in store. But matching via the color HUDs shouldn’t be too big of a problem. Both of these packs are FREE for everyone, no group needed!

Curious Kitties – Azil Skin Packs in Winter Spirit and Light Sparkle – (FREE/0L/Free gift no group needed)

It's all skin deep

Next up is Birdy with two Group Gifts: Jaime and Ali. The Birdy VIP Group is a one time fee of 150L. Jaime, #1 , is in the Toffee tone and comes with a ton of add-ons and a HUD for NyamNyam. The add-ons are on the tattoo layer and include freckles, eye liner, three colors of lip gloss, three levels of ‘face contouring’ for definition, and two face ‘Dews’. All of the appliers are available in the main Birdy store.

You may remember, I showed you the Ali group gift skin back here. Ali is still available and includes all of the same tattoo layers and NyamNyam Hud. However, you also get the skin with four brows with the Ali gift: no brows, black, blonde and ginger.

Birdy – Jaime in Toffee and Ali in Pure – (FREE/0L/ Group Gifts group is 150L to join)

It's all skin deep

Deluxe Body Factory is next with the December Group Gift: Shanice in Chi. DBF is great for getting out monthly group gift skins for both men and women and the quality of the skins is wonderful. The Shanice skin comes with a brow shaper but no appliers. Those are available separately in-store. DBF’s group has a small fee to join but that 49L one time fee lets you play at the twenty lucky boards in the back of the store.  That’s where I picked up skin #2: Maja. This gift comes with a brow shaper as well as appliers for SLink hands and feet and Lolas Tango. Maja , in Vanilla, comes with three levels of cleavage as well.

Deluxe Body Factory – Shanice in Chi  and Maja in Vanilla ( FREE/0L/ Dec. Group Gift + Group only Lucky Board – group is 49L to join)

It's all skin deep

Lastly, we have a very familiar skin designer, 7 Deadly Skins. Familiar and very generous. 7DS is another shore that is great with getting out monthly group gifts for both men and women and they have four lucky chairs and two camping chairs, plus two Midnight Manias one for girls and one for guys. My favorite of this group is #1, Esmee DC Pineapple. I was lucky enough to pull this beautiful skin from one of the Lucky Chairs. Esmee comes in two versions one with the cute freckles and one without plus each has a cleavage level. There are also appliers for SLink hands and feet, phatazz and Tango.

#2 is Savannah and I won this skin on the Midnight Mania board. Savannah also comes in two version with different lip colors and levels of cleavage plus appliers for SLink hands and feet and Tango cleavage and no cleavage.

7 Deadly Skins just started their Holiday Advent gift calendar and #3 is todays first gift. The Advent gifts are all the same skin: Noelia but by the end of the calendar you will have sixty skins ( with and without cleavage) appliers, the shape, an eyeliner pack, a lipstick pack and face appliers. For you guys the Advent gift is Noah. At the end of the calendar you will have twenty eight skins ( with and without hair base) the shape, Omega and TMP face appliers and SLink Body appliers.  That, my dears… is a heck of a gift!

Right now, the Group is FREE to join however I don’t know how long this will last.

7 Deadly Skins – Esmee in Pineapple – (FREE/0L/Lucky Chair gift)

Savannah – (FREE/0L/Midnight Mania gift)

Noelia – (FREE/0L/Holiday Advent Gift for Day 1)

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!

That’s Ms. ‘Winged’ Fairey to you!

Seeing the other lovely FabFree bloggers doing posts with wings has made me realized 2 things. 1: I have not done a post with wings yet, and 2: it’s been a really long time since I have actually worn wings! Way, way back, I used to work in a club that ran 24/7, maybe some of you old-timers like me, may have even been there (I won’t mention the name though :P), and every shift had a theme. Wings was one of my favourite events to run for sure. All the dancing with wings fluttering every which way, it was so much fun.

purplefairy1

Naturally, I am going to start with the wings. If you look on the Marketplace, there are so many choices of free or nearly free wings available, you are sure to find something that will work for you. Inspired by the lovely purple hue of the skin I am in, I went with the . Dream . Gem Wings in Lilac, for L$10 on the Marketplace. I am obsessed with the colours in these, seriously, all of my favourites in one wing!

purplefairy4

Sticking with my colour inspiration, I found the Indecision-Flirt-Satin Bodysuits-Pack-1, also on the Marketplace. For only L$1, you get 3 different colours of this beautifully simple bodysuit. I of course, went with the Violet version for my main picture, but I have pictures of the other 2 colours below. These bodysuits come on all clothing layers, so they are incredibly versatile.

purplefairy3

This would be the point where I say that’s it, but as luck would have it, when I logged in today, MOCK Cosmetics had sent out a bunch of new, free, group gifts, and two of them worked perfectly with my colour combination, so I had to add them! Lucky I didn’t take my pictures last night like I had planned 🙂 I have on, the Skype Blue Vinyl Lips, and the Frosty Purple Cateye Eyeshadow. The lips come in 3 sizes, so they should fit almost any skin/shape without any issues.  The MOCK Cosmetics group is L$250 to join, but Mockie is so generous, that it is totally worth the fee. There are 15 gifts in the groups notices right now, yes really 😛

purplefairy2

OK, so this is now it for me for this wing post. Maybe I need to start doing more theme postings…I’m pretty sure I still have my list of all the themes I use to have to choose from when setting up my shifts at the club. LOL.

Until next time, TTFN *flutters and waves*

Snow in August never looked so good!

Before you yell at me, yes…that is snow in my pictures! I know, in most of our parts of the world, Summer isn’t even over yet, let alone any thoughts of snow. I’m sorry, I can’t help where my outfits inspire me to go for pictures, and you have to admit, my look in this post goes quite well with the white of the snow 😛

snowblue1

So, I won’t go into much with my items on this post, as there is a deadline..the hunt for these gifts ends tonight!! Both the dress and skin are from the Fairy Tale Hunt, and you better move fast if you want them. I’ll remind you, the gifts are L$1 each, and for the hints and previews of other gifts, go HERE.

This gorgeous turquoise gown is the huint gift from OMG! Inc. The Grace Me Midnight Gown (love the name!!!) comes in 2 lengths. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is a system layer and rpim skirt gown..yayy! IDK if I like it better long or short, I’ll let you all decide, both looks are beutiful. I may be biased though, as this is one of my favourite colours.

snowblue2

The lovely pale skin I am wearing is the Thindwen skin from Deluxe Body Factory. I love the pale blue brows ❤ In the gift, you get the skin, a brow shaper and an eyelash hider alpha (I did not use either of those). I did have to whip out the alternative skin hud for my SLink hands, feel free to IM me in world if you would like the numbers I decided on.

snowblue3

OK lovelies, I hope you have enough time to run and get these gifts. Along with many others on the hunt, sorry I don’t have enough time to show anymore prizes. I will be back with something else that is just as wonderful, so until next time, TTFN!
