Don’t Say a Word

Don't Say a Word

“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.”

Feeling Introspective…

When I saw the group gift from Le Morte, I knew I had to have it. The join fee is 50L but I wanted the mouth tape gift of “Silence” as it spoke to me on so many levels. I’m a person who speaks out after all. And the idea of representing silence seemed important. Because I really don’t think we should remain silent when issues are important to us. I won’t get into politics or issues here, but I’ll offer a heartfelt plea to all of you… speak out. Don’t remain silent when something is important to you. I am pretty sure the saying goes that you’ll regret the things you didn’t do, more than the things you did do. That’s sort of the idea I’m going on here.

Hairology is still going on!

On a lighter note, the Hairology Anniversary celebration is still going strong, and you can still pick up lots of FREE and 1L gifts of beautiful hair until November 30th, when the event ends. I picked up my beautiful hair from Iconic called “Michelle” as a FREE gift from Hairology. It came with a fatpack hud of colors. There are lots of other gifts to be had at this event so it is a not-to-be-missed one! Mark it down and teleport in!

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!

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!

I’m taking some time to relax now after a whirlwind tour of the Pick my Strawberry! Event. There are approximately 50 creators participating and if you stop by, you’ll find a little strawberry at each store’s booth, with a FREE gift! While there, I picked up a couple that I really found just as delightful as the theme🙂

This beautiful white dress with its flared style skirt and sensual plunging neckline is the FREE gift from the FAIDA booth. Just buy the strawberry for 0L and this pretty dress is yours in all the standard mesh sizes.

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!

Freak Show Beauty

Freak Show Beauty

It’s time to get your Freak Show on… and upstage the beauty at the curtain by visiting the Freak Show Gacha Carnival where there is literally row after row of gacha deals to be had. It is just the place to steal a deal… and get your freak on.

I put this stunning look together at the Freak Show Carnival, and I’m not ashamed to say it’s smoking hot! You may get lost among the many gorgeous items, but it’s well worth the trip.

My skin is one of the many quality offerings at the Carnival — Essences Skins has generously put out this skin called Quinta for only 64L per spin on the machine. For a skin with this much drama and flair, you just can’t beat the price. Hop over to their main-store for all the appliers you could possibly need or want to go with it.

My hair is a bit over the 75L limit but still a sweet deal at 99L so I couldn’t resist (I think you’ll forgive me), and at just 99L per spin, I couldn’t pass up this do by Doe called Summer.

Astrid is wearing this sexy lingerie in lilac by 1Hundred called the Bitten Bodysuit which comes in all system layers and appliers for lolas, Mirage, Delicq, L.inc., Banned, U Luckie, Wowmeh, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega to cover all your body needs. At just 50L per spin, it was too irresistibly sexy to pass up.

To finish, I tossed on a necklace by Goth1c0 called simply “Gothic Elegant Necklace” that was only 35L per spin and an after show smoke by [VIRTUAL/INSANITY] called the Lucky Stroke Ciggie that was only 25L per spin.

The Freak Show Gacha Carnival only lasts through the end of October, so be sure to hurry down to snag the deals before it’s too late!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Dark Fae & Rispetto Designs at The Wash Cart Sale

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
The Wash Cart Sale as some good stuff for men in addition to all the goodies for the ladies, and all at bargain prices.  I was pleased to find that one of my favorite stores, Rispetto Designs, is back in SL after having been closed for about a year, and has a small men’s shop on The Wash sim and  a cart in this month’s cart sale.  Designer Khayman Karlsvalt’s Amour & Rispetto Designs cart is selling one of my favorite summer outfits for just $10L – the Giretto tank top, roll-up shorts and waist-tie sweater.  You get both a black and a white tank top with the outfit, and it’s great for the beach or just hanging out.

Image

Next up is the men’s hoodie and cargo shorts that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart.  The mesh hoodie comes in both a t-shirt version and an open, bare-chested look.  Dark Fae’s black mesh cargo pants complete the look with either version of the hoodie, but the pants can be worn by themselves as a board-shorts swimsuit as well.  The hoodie and the shorts are each a mere $10L at the Dark Fae Cart.

Image

The hair I’m wearing with both outfits is Mario in black, the May group gift from Pocket Mirrors.  Pocket Mirrors specializes in retro and old-time hairstyles for men and women, and it’s another favorite store of mine that has been off the grid for sometime but is now back with a new store.  It’s well worth a visit.

ImageAnd finally, if you’re curious about the little piece of paradise in the background of these photos, you should check out the Arabian Oasis of Love, also available at The Dark Fae Cart at The Wash Cart Sale.  For just $10L you get your own beach or desert oasis complete with palm trees, fountain, and animated cuddle rug with pillows.  There are nine pg cuddle poses in the rug, many of which are suitable for relaxing as a single, and the package contains both a full-sized version and a petites-sized version of the oasis and rug.
