Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:

A cure for rain

Renard

Rain, rain go away

Nursery rhymes are rather common in my real life day to day and that particular one has been a ‘fan favorite’ as of late probably due to the fact that it’s been drizzling or outright storming off and on this entire week. To escape, I’ve been traversing through the sunniest sims I could find and it’s pretty fortunate that there are some great deals at the moment to help make my travels a whole lot less costly. Since I’ve been finding my (virtual) self on the uneven ground of the great outdoors more often than not, I thought it prudent to take advantage of the newest group gift from Reign. The Arianna sneakers are not only gorgeous and great quality two hallmarks that I’ve come to associate with Reign but the gift package also includes two different style variations if you’re wearing them for flat mesh feet and a size that fits mesh high feet as well. As someone who hasn’t gotten around to getting flat feet, it was nice to be able to slip on some sneakers for a change on my Slinks.

Here’s a rundown of styles and compatible mesh feet included in the gift package:

  • Belleza mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Belleza Flat) Trippies (for Belleza High)
  • Maitreya mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Maitreya Flat) Trippies (for Maitreya High)
  • Slink mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for Slink Flat) Trippies (for Slink High)
  • TMP mesh feet: Regular, Slipped on, Sloppy (for TMP bare) Trippies (for TMP Ouch)

If you’re wondering what the style variations are for the flat feet it’s between wearing your sneakers normally, and simply slipping them on to leave the ends folded up under your heel. It’s a nice, slouchy detail to be sure. The gift package also includes a hud that allows you to choose between three different colors schemes (red with white hearts, white with black hearts and black with white hearts) for the body of your shoes as well as the laces (choice of three colors) and the sole of the shoe (choice of two colors)

The Reign group has a joining fee of 250L however you can still pick up older group gifts while you’re there.

Welcome addition

It’s certainly a good idea to stock up on those comfy clothes now that I’m nursing a bad case of wanderlust, though truth be told I would have snapped up this lovely pair of denim shorts from Ibela Store on the Marketplace anyway. There’s a serious lack of shorts or even pants in my inventory (or maybe they’re just hidden under the mountains of pet food) so the Mina shorts with it’s high waist and faded wash are certainly a welcome addition. Priced at only 1L, I was pretty glad that I didn’t have to break the bank too.

Sizing details:

  • Five Standard Mesh sizes (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer for classic avatars.
  • One size for the Slink Physique mesh body.
  • One size for the Maitreya mesh body.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to go spend my time with these two cuties, they’re pretty convinced I’m one of them. I’ll leave with a close up picture of the Arianna Sneakers to give you a better picture of what the style variations are. Have fun out there guys!

All you need is…

All you need is

A pair of pink sneakers!

Since my laptop has continued to be in a good mood (though I was really pushing my luck during this shoot, to be honest) I decided to put those long neglected landmarks to use and visit another picturesque sim. A quiet stroll through beautiful countryside called for proper footwear (wouldn’t want to go tripping and rolling into a ditch) and it was the perfect time to slip on these pink pair of high top sneakers that I’ve accommodated for myself recently from Graffitiwear. Not only are they free but they’re part of the full outfit that you see in the picture above.

This adorable and high-quality t-shirt, skirt and sneakers combination is a gift for Valentine’s Day that Graffitiwear has most generously set out. There is no group tag needed for you to grab this outfit for your virtual wardrobe though since freebies like these can be fleeting and I’m not sure how long this gift will be out for, I suggest you do it ASAP. Here are the sizing details:

Knotted t-shirt:

  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Knotted t-shirt alpha layer

Skirt:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-L)
  • Skirt alpha layer

Sneakers:

  • Sneakers alpha layer
  • Sneakers shoe base

I’m wearing the sneakers without the use of my Slink feet and they fit like a dream. While you’re at Graffitiwear, do consider joining their group (the joining fee stands at 5L) or their subscribers group to stay in touch with the great deals going on at the store. There’s also a steady stream of gifts and other perks that make joining the group worthwhile.

A new day a new hairstyle

While waiting for my blind date to turn up ( the date was a bust, by the way, I’ll tell you the story some other time) I passed the time by looking into the Marketplace and came across this beautiful mesh hairstyle from Fabia. Long and flowing and elegant the Rima hair was just up my alley and it didn’t hurt that it only cost 1L. You’ll also get a hud of thirty natural colors to choose from a fact that certainly made me less huffy that he was running late.

Well, that’s a wrap for today. I have more of this countryside to explore so catch you guys later!

Can I make a connection?

Can I make a connection?

Another bright and sunny day

Well, it looks like the weather’s perfect for Valentine’s and while Commander’s distracted with chasing butterflies, I decided that it would be a good time to sneak in some headshot practice. If you’ve been following Love’s blog posts (here and here) recently, you’ll have been clued in about the Alaskametro hunt going on right now at Free Dove. It’s not a hunt to pass up on (Free Dove also runs two more free hunts concurrently at their location) but needless to say, I got wholly distracted by all the other free goodies that you can find there as soon as I teleported in. One of these is the Serenity skin by Alaskametro. I was immediately intrigued by this (as I always am when encountering new to me skin brands) and a look at the box told me that the skin gift package would include:

  • One classic avatar skin
  • Lipstick and Eyeshadow classic tattoo layers (worn in picture)
  • Omega skin appliers for mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system
  • Omega applier for both lipstick and eyeshadow
  • One shape

Snapping up the gift and taking a peek inside also lead me to discover that you’ll receive a bald base and eyebrow shaper as well. I’ve tried Alaskametro’s makeup and clothing in the past and the Serenity skin certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of quality. The subtle tones of the makeup provided go really well with such a sweet face and I do adore the light dusting of freckles that Serenity has. It’s certainly a skin to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Speaking of Hunts

There’s another one I’ve just started call the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. It promises to be fun though I hope I don’t get shot by any arrows in the process. One of the stops on the hunting path is Kingswood and they’re offering the Be My Valentine USB necklace as their hunt prize. This adorable and quirky necklace has an inbuilt resizer script for easier fitting and permissions are set to copy if (like me) you’d like to make backups before embarking on any modifications. I love how well detailed this necklace is, from the symbols on the USB to the little heart charm to the tag that reads Be My Valentine, it almost makes me wish I had this necklace in real life as I’m always loosing my USB drives (there’s probably a black hole in my purse or something). The Stupid Cupid Hunt runs from the 3rd of February to the 28th and prizes for the hunt are set to 1L.

Get to the Sale

What’s a holiday without scampering about to a sale? If you love getting more great quality hairstyles for your inventory, Clawtooth is holding a 25% off sale for all hair packs (gachas excluded) from the 13th to 15th February (not much time so hurry down). I’m wearing the Hang It Up hairdo in the picture which is an older style but I’ve had my eye on it for a while and thought that this was a good time to snap it up!

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Valentine’s Day! I got myself saddled with a blind date (pfft) and do you think I should bring Commander along? Some girls carry pepper spray others bring animals that could potentially maul you. Decisions…decisions.

Moooving on

Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!

Going dotty

Going dotty

Help! The weather’s been so dotty lately.

I don’t know what’s going on but the weather’s been acting kinda strange recently. Not so strange that it’s raining literal cats and dogs (thankfully) but it seems as if it can’t make up its mind most of the time. Some days the sky is heavy with dark clouds while on others it’s surprisingly sunny for this time of year and on other days things can flip between the two at the drop of a dime. I just can’t figure it out but anyway, at least I’ve found an outfit versatile enough to keep up with all of this odd weather.

As they say, if you can’t beat them…

Join them! I’ve gone dotty as well with the Lily outfit from MOoH! (it’s so much fun typing out this store’s name). You can always count on classic prints to get you through the day and none are more classic, or classy when it comes down to it than black and white polka dots. Personally, I found that it paired off rather well with the prim cut of this collared dress. I like fantasy clothes as much as the next Second Life(r) but it’s always great to find something that I’d actually wear outside of this virtual world.

As you can see from the picture above there are two ways of wearing the Lily outfit. The dress itself is a sleeveless number (perfect for when the sun decides to show itself) and flatters your figure by being cinched at the waist by a white belt. The dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size so you can most certainly test it out on your mesh body should you own one. If it gets chillier (or if you just feel like rocking the cute librarian look) throw on the comfy, duel toned cardigan. I simply love the little bow that holds the two sides together, as it just adds to the girlish look of the whole outfit. The cardigan comes in five standard mesh sizes as well (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size. Both outfits have their own spiffy alpha layer and not only do they help with the fit, they also ensure that you can wear the cardigan with a separate outfit as well.

The Lily outfit is on sale at the MOoH! main store until the 26th of the month and is priced at 85L. That’s a little over the FabFree price cap but if you join the MOoH! group as I’ve already done (-crosses another thing off the bucket list-) you can take advantage of the free 150L gift card that’s available to members to get this dress for free. MOoH! has a one-time join fee of 100L but it’s a great investment in the long run as the gift cards are given out monthly. If you haven’t picked it up already, the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at MOoH! has been changed out recently.

Heeled and tasseled

With Commander being a bit grumpy recently I’ve had to stay home to make sure he doesn’t get up to any mischief. Of course, that also means more time to poke about the SL Marketplace. I came across these pretty pair of strappy heels from Ferina’s Creations and immediately thought about wearing them with the Lily outfit. There’s nothing like wearing a bit of red with a monochrome outfit to make things pop. I simply adore the detail of the tassel on these heels though the best part about them is that you’ll only have to spend 1L to add them to your collection. Note however that these heels are made for Slink high feet only.

A little bit of bounce

It seems that I’ve been more inclined towards shorter hairstyles recently doesn’t it? It’s nice to switch things up for a change and it helps that there have been not a few great offers for shorter hairstyles. One such is the free gift that Analog Dog has out for the January round of Gacha Guardians. I’ve come to associate wild, fun curls with this brand and the Charlotte hair certainly did not disappoint. This bouncy hairstyle has a retro feel about it, acting as the perfect topper for the Lily outfit. In the gift package, you’ll receive a bald base, an alpha layer as well as an easy to use hud that lets you choose from twelve fantasy colors as well as control the ombre fades and tints of the hair. There are loads of other gifts out at the Gacha Guardians event and you’ll need to be part of the Gimme Gacha group to be able to scoop them up. Don’t worry though the group is free to join so all you need is a group slot and you’re good to go!

Another group gift

Speaking of free group gifts, there’s a new one currently out at Hello Dave. The pictures don’t do them any justice but the Spot Me manicure in nude that I’m wearing pairs up very nicely with the entire outfit as well. Personally, I find that Hello Dave puts out manicures with very interesting designs and it certainly doesn’t hurt that they change out their free group gifts on the regular too. The group is free to join as well so go ahead and treat yourself to a mani and pedi! Hello Dave nails work with Slink mesh hands and some mesh hands that are compatible with the Omega system. While you’re there at the store don’t forget to pick up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well. Two of the sets have been blogged by Kat {HERE} and myself {HERE} and you can get a closer look {HERE}.

And that’s a wrap for today! The weather’s looking pretty dodgy again so I’m retreating back indoors. Oh, but before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Hello Dave group gift I was talking about.

The Panty Peek

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulous Ladies! I have a bit of a sensitive subject I’d like to talk about today. I hope you can put aside my cheek(s) and just take it for what it’s worth!

That Day…

Do you remember “that day”?  The day when mesh was released, the alpha layers were introduced and women in Second Life became hollow?   Men (and some women too!) across the lands and sims fled their homelands leaving their excavated partners in search of  the rare panty peek.  Families were broken, hearts were broken and we…  as women leapt forward taking the big step into the future, being promised a time where garage door skirt prims were no longer an issue.  No more hair through shoulders, or big bulky sweater prims.  We remained strong, and patient while Linden Labs and creators worked together in pursuit of a dream.  A dream for us!  A way to mend our voided bodies put our lady parts back where they belong in hopes that maybe…  just maybe it would bring our men back home…

The Time Has Come!

Ladies…  Rejoice!  The day has finally come!  With the great strides that mesh has taken, becoming fluid and rigged to our bodies, we are now able to avoid those unwanted alphas with some of the newer fashion designs.  Sometimes it takes a little shape adjusting, but it is indeed possible to put “the peek” back into your SLife.  It’s now time to call out to your lover, put on your big girl panties and claim what is yours!

Maai Supports The Peek

Maai is in support of this cause and wants you to have these very cheeky, made for Maitreya mesh Body panties to wear under your dresses and skirts (or on their own if you like 😉 )!  For 1L on marketplace, you’ll receive the sheer keyhole cheeky butt panties as shown on my avatar in both black and white.  My “darling” fingernail polish is also courtesy of a 1L marketplace offer by Maai, so be sure to check out all of her offerings!

A hunting we will go

A hunting we will go

A whole slew of new hunts!

The New Year has been kicked off with a number of fun hunts, making me excited to see how many more great ones there are to come. These last couple of days have been spent going down several hunt paths and luck seems to be on my side as I haven’t gotten lost or turned around or spent fifteen minutes in a store only to realize I’ve been looking for the wrong hunt prim all along. Anyway, I’ve put together some of those hunt prizes to come up with my look of the day and here’s the rundown;

Cute and Curvy Hunt 2

Having been stuck in sweaters and jumpers and coats (oh my!) for the better part of two months I was most certainly in the mood for something that showed just a bit more skin. The sultry Amal top from Blasphemic was perfect for my needs. Not only did I adore the unique design of the top, the deep blue and black color combination was very eye catching as well. The Amal top comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) as well as sizes for the Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass and Physique) and Maitreya mesh bodies. There is no alpha layer included in the prize package but I’m wearing the standard size S in the picture above and the top fit like a glove. There are so many sizes included in this gift so play around and hopefully, there will be one that’ll fit. This top is just too great to pass up on! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 costs 1L and the hunt is running until the 31st of this month. Just look for the pink lollipop!

Medieval Hunt

As I’m always in the market for new boots, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Evil Stumper boots when I opened up the hunt prize from Lady Dragon’s Designs. There’s really nothing evil in adding a new pair of shoes to your collection (amirite?) and I really appreciated the rugged cut of this pair. If you’re tired of flat stompers worry not as these boots are heeled and it also has pretty red detailing on its buckles because even when we’re stomping about evilly we can still look pretty while doing it. Full disclosure, however, the boots do not come with an alpha layer. To get a fit I had to play around with some of the other alpha layers that I owned (having a million boots comes in handy really) and ended up having to use the alpha layer provided with my Slink feet. If you do decide to get the Stumper boots for yourself the Medieval Hunt is a 1L hunt that runs until the end of this month. Keep a look out for a shield.

SLF Birthday Hunt

To celebrate four years in SL, Second Life – Free is hosting a 0-1L hunt that spans across the grid as well as the marketplace. Holding both simultaneously is an interesting concept if you ask me and it’s where I found another pair of pretty earrings (if this keeps up I’ve going to need another drawer for accessories). These beautiful ball earrings with its delicate lace flower patterns from Asutris were a great way to spice up the outfit. The pair come with an easy to use resize script so that you play around with the sizing and permissions are set to copy so you can make as many backups as you like. A clearer picture of these darling earrings are provided below but the SLF Birthday Hunt is running until the 11th of February with lots of great prizes to be had. Keep your eyes peeled for the SLF Birthday logo.

Non-hunt related

After an exhaustive time hunting, I decided to kick back a little with a nice spot of fishing at Sn@tch. Love’s blogged about the fantastic new fishing prize {HERE} and while I was trying to get my hands on it (those boots still elude me grrr) I took a peek at what’s in their riot vendors. Needless to say, they’re filled with goodies and the two faced jeans are just one of them. Who knew that such an unsavory aspect in people could translate quite fashionably to clothes. These jeans come in ten distinct patterns (floral shown) with the choice of pants and underwear layer for classic avatars as well as omega appliers for avatars using compatible mesh bodies. I got my copy for 69L if memory serves but if you’re planning on getting these bring…everyone and push those prices down. The riot vendors change out regularly and that only means more goodies.

A hunting we will go headshot

Getting lucky

Ahhh there we go, a close up picture of those fabulous earrings. While we’re on the subject of closeups, I found that skins from Deluxe Body Factory are just great for that. I love how realistic they look and those beauty marks only serve to make their faces more unique. Pictured is the Jasmine skin which I won off the Lucky Letter boards at Deluxe Body Factory. The prize package includes one classic skin in the tone chai as well as a brow shaper and an alpha layer to hide system eyelashes. Lucky Letters are free for group members but if you’re not currently one there is a one-time join fee of 299L. Personally, I find it worth the price as there are a lot of Lucky Letters at the store and Midnight Mania boards as well.

And that’s a wrap. Time to put my aching feet up unless Commander’s (the Polar Bear cub) gone and dug up the carpet again. Catch ya later guys!

Cute Curvy Classy

Cute Curvy Classy

Pastel Dream

Have you ever had rainbow ice cream before? More specifically Paddle Pop rainbow ice cream? It was my favorite growing up (the only flavor of ice cream I’d consume actually) and one look at this pretty pastel offering from Glasgow Grin had me nostalgic for those days all over again. Personally, I’ve always found pastel shades to have a rather dreamy quality about them and when they’ve been mixed together so artfully I find them quite irresistible. Such was the case for the Cutey Dress that’s out right now at Glasgow Grin for the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2. This comfy sweater dress comes in sizes for ebody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass) and Maitreya mesh bodies as well as one standard mesh size for those of us classic avatars. I’m wearing the standard mesh size in the picture above and was pretty pleased with the alpha layer that’s provided as it helped with the fit quite nicely. Cute, curvy, classy indeed! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 are for 1L and the hunt runs till the 31st of January.

Accessorize

Did you guys make New Year resolutions? It’s a little dorky I know but I made a couple for Second Life as well and one of which is to try to pay more attention to the little details when putting together outfits. The other is to clean out the inventory but we’ll see how well that goes. Anyway, I’m on Oxide’s mailing list and discovered that they’ve put out a great pair of hooped earrings for their sub-o members. You can never go wrong with this classic design (especially when wearing a shorter hairstyle) and this well-made pair from Oxide come with a color change hud as well. If you’re not in the mood to stick to gold there are nine other colors to choose from as well. Some other perks of being in Oxide’s sub-o group is that you’ll have access to past sub-o gifts as well (that you can snap up for free) and of course it doesn’t take up those precious group slots so it’s certainly worth checking out.

All nice and manicured

If you’ve been following the blog closely, you’d have seen that some Fabulously Free in SL group gifts is being changed out. It’s really exciting to see what our generous designers have in store for us next! Needless to say, I snapped up the new manicure and pedicure sets from Hello Dave in a jiffy and am wearing the Fairy French set in the picture above. I love the clean, glossy colors and truth be told its stores like Hello Dave that make getting Slink hands really worth it. Hello Dave nails are compatible with Slink hands and hands using the Omega system. To add this set to your inventory for free, simply wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag or if you’re not in the group yet copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . As always the group is free to join! If you’re still not convinced, click {HERE} for a clearer picture on these gorgeous nail sets.

New face for a new year

Last but not least I stopped by 7 Deadly s{K}ins to pick up their January group gift. Carson blogged about the men’s gift {HERE} and I’m happy to report that the gift for ladies is packed full of goodies as well. In the gift package you’ll get:

  • Classic skins in seven tones (caramel, cotton, oak, pineapple, sand, taupe, and walnut)
  • Omega body appliers in the tones listed above
  • Omega head appliers in the tones listed above
  • Slink appliers
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers
  • 2 shapes

7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group join fee of 225L but as you can see it’s well worth the lindens. Not only are their gifts generous, but the faces on their skins are always so gorgeous.

That’s a wrap! I’ve still got a hankering for some rainbow ice cream but luckily it’s not too late to skip on over to the corner store. Catch you on the flip side guys!
