Fit for a Queen

Queenly_001

Fit for a Queen.

It’s been a while since I stopped by Sweet Lies, so when I made my way over there the other day to see if there was anything new at the main-store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the creator had set out a free group gift. The group is free to join, so the Diona outfit won’t cost you a thing. Considering this gift is fit for a Queen that is quite a deal.

Included in the gift:

  • The dress in all the standard mesh sizes plus standard fitmesh sizes
  • Matching bracelets, armbands, earrings, and necklace

Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

Light Reading_002

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Tropical_002

“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch”

Okay, okay…

Okay, so I don’t really have any coconuts, but I found this great tiki disco house called The Revival Disco where I could dance in my new free group gift dress from EvelineInTheBox! I love this particular dress. The colors are tropical and gorgeous and it has a sexy side slit all the way down the right side of the dress.

Sizes you’ll be getting: Standard sizes XXS – L + a Fitted Mesh and a quality alpha for system bodies.

EvelineInTheBox is a great place to pick up roleplay, fantasy, and modern clothes for low prices and regularly puts out a free group gift. Be sure to drop by and get your free Nandi dress before it disappears!

Transparency

Transparency_001

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Transparency_002

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

Vroom! Vroooom!

THE PEA MOBILE_002

Vroom! Vroom!

I haven’t had a new car since 2004. At least in real life. And even then I bought a used one. So when I heard that I could get a new free car at MadPea (even if it was a Pea Pod car) I was all in for a new set of wheels!

I made a mad dash to the MadPea main-store to check out the deal and it wasn’t long before I was cruising down the streets of Port Babbage in my favorite of the 7 colors that are available in the free gift pack. The group is free to join by the way, making this gift absolutely free as well. If I look like I’m having fun, that’s because I am!

Perks:

  • This car is wearable, no rezzing required.
  • The headlights turn off and on with a click.
  • 7 Colors in the package: Dark Blue, Green (shown), Light Green, Orange, Pink, Red, Turquoise.
  • Each color comes in a fit for both male and female avatar so you won’t have to worry about that problem.
  • I found it easy to edit the car when up and down a bit and then set my hover height a touch when the wheels didn’t quite touch the ground.
  • It’s easy to drive/navigate!
  • Did I already mention its absolutely FREE?!

THE PEA MOBILE_001

Cruising…

I was cruising down the streets (plus I wanted to give you a side view of this cute little pea-pod of a car – aren’t all the details amazing!) and ran across a little bakery shop. I decided to make a stop and get out of my new wheels and head in…

THE PEA MOBILE_003

A spring dress.

I had to step out carefully, as I was wearing a bit of a short skirted dress today. Good thing my MadPea car sets low to the ground, it makes for easy exits. My adorable frock is a free group gift from Graffitiwear for the month of April. You just need your free group tag to pick it up.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • Fitmesh XS – XL plus alpha for system bodies
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Aloha!

Tiki Times_001

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!

A Touch of Macabre

Back in Black_001

A touch of macabre.

Believe it or not, I was visiting a funeral parlor. I had stopped at Port Babbage again, and I was interested in the pottery in the window of a shop and had gone inside before I realized quite where I was. The somber furnishings and the casket for sale behind the screen quickly gave the location away. But still, I was intrigued. Perhaps it is the fact that I was raised on shows like The Munsters and The Addams Family.

Luckily…

… I was properly dressed for the occasion, thanks to the April group gift from Lisan Store. I had picked up this gift, just prior to going out. It’s a real beauty and the package had included the dress in both red or black, for an equally Gothic feel no matter which color you choose. I love the chained waist and the rose decorated bosom, which adds a bit of flair to this dress, yet somehow manages not to be frilly. As a side note, the dress only comes in Maitreya and Slink sizes for wear.

You will need the Lisan Store group tag to pick up this dress. It will set you back the small fee of 55L, but you’ll not only have access to this beautiful group gift, but also a about 6 other past group gifts that are still set out for you to enjoy. All of them are quality and lovely and make the join fee well worth it.

An Easter Hunt.

Zuri is hosting an Easter Hunt through the month of April. There are 3 eggs to find and they are just 10L each (or they are free if you are a member of the Zuri Jewelry group). One egg contains the beautiful necklace you see me wearing. One contains my earrings, and one contains my bracelet (upper picture). For just 30L you can have the entire set. It’s a steal for your Easter basket!

Blowing in the wind.

I think there was a breeze in the air at the Garden of Absentia where I took my picture… or maybe it was just this beautiful free to all gift that I picked up from Exile hair. Right now if you hurry over to Exile, there is a gift out for both guys and gals. This is “Gina” for the gals. It is a free gift and comes in a full fatpack of colors. Hurry, you won’t want to miss this beautiful style!
