Spooky & Itchy

Bundles Grumble Cat tee #2_001

October is here and it’s time to get our spookiness on. Time to break out those Halloween outfits and have more fun. The madness is just starting so get yourself ready. I’ve got news about a few goodies from Bundles and the Mid-season Mystery Fair & Hunt. When I worked as a venue hostess I would start wearing Halloween costumes on October 1st because I love dressing up. Of course the same was true for other holidays also.

Not so spooky looking

After reading a post about Bundles by Aline here, I realized I’d never been to Bundles. Face Palms & screams ZOMG! There are a number of free gifts available and you don’t have to join a group to pick them up. Bundles will be running until October 16th so put the event on your list of places to gather more “stuff”. I know you’ll find something you like or just have to have.

My cute little cat cropped tee is too adorable for words. I love his spidey web whiskers. It’s a gift from Grumble for Bundles and it comes exclusively in this blue. It’s fitted for these sizes: Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus; Maitreya; and SLink Hourglass & Physique.

I paired the tee with a skirt from Cleo Design. The skirt is part of the Witch 2022 outfit that is still on sale for $25L at the main store. Sizes included are: Belleza Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and SLink Hourglass. In addition to the top and skirt a witch hat & magic pumpkin are included.

Last but certainly not least is the spider laying over my belly button. I swear I have better hygiene in real life! I found this goodie on the Mid-season Mystery Fair & Hunt at the [Lion Style] booth. The Spider Belly Button Pack comes with an unrigged version and rigged versions for: Belleza Freya & Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, & SLink Hourglass & Physique.

Toodles – I have to go scratch my belly button now.

Cre.

Brilliantly Free for Now – Hurry!

FLF 9-25-2022 Brillancia GG 2_001

In Second Life we get to be who or whatever we like. So though you may see a horse and rider behind me as I stand here dressed looking like I’m ready for a red carpet strut have no fear. It’s all in your head or is it? Maybe it’s all in my head, lol. I’ve got a couple of gifts to show you today so let’s all get that into our brains.

Free – Free – Free

The Brillancia group is free to join and the current gift is a $500L gift card. There are also a number of really nice group gifts on the wall to your right as you walk down the main hallway. The group notice sent on September 21 stated “For 1 week, the group becomes free and a gift card for 500 L is available in the store. We invite everyone to shop and give gifts!!!” Get busy and get there very soon if you want to grab this gift.

Today I’m wearing two of the group gifts. The Elen set consists of this provocative dress, bra, and panties. Included are separate dress and lingerie huds with seven textures each making it versatile. You will feel quite daring in this outfit. If you feel really daring I guess you could skip the lingerie or the dress. Giggling here. I LOVE it! It is sized for

  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra
  • Kupra Kup

The exquisite Butterfly Jewelry set complements the outfit. You get two sets earrings & necklace, one is shown here; the other has sparkles. And you can choose from options on the four huds included.

BRILLANCIA - SET BUTTERFLY

I grabbed the lipstick I’m wearing is on sale at Opulein where a huge retirement sale is going on to make room for new inventory. Everything in the sale room is priced at $49L.

Rock Steady

Rock Hunt Sept 2022 Sissy Bar 002_001

Some days you just want to rock out because you have all kinds of energy to expend. I wandered around a bit then stumbled upon a gorgeous sim on Bahia Bay, Soul2Soul Rocks. It has tranquil beaches with sparkling water and woodlands. Well… I wasn’t exactly in a tranquil mood. I pulled out my trusty electric guitar and rocked out to my heart’s content. It’s pretty cool that you don’t have to have a power source in SL.

Time to Hunt Again

The start of each month brings new hunts to the grid. Today I’ve got hunt gifts from the Rock Hunt and the Shiver Me Timbers hunt. You can click on those links to see the hunt gifts and hints. There is an emphasis on “Pirate” stuff this month. It could be because September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Are you ready for it? If not, get to hunting!

The brightly colored dress I’m wearing is aptly named – the Rock Hunt dress. The texture has little guitars. It will set you back $1L at The Sissy Bar. It’s sized for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Classic Medium, Maitreya Lara, and SLink (Hourglass & Physique).

My comfy looking Torri Denim boots can be found at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They come in sizes for classic bodies, Belleza, Legacy, and SLink.

Shred It!

Want to play guitar like one of the greats? Like a Rock Star?? Head on over to Overdrive Designs (OD) and pick yours up for free. There are several to choose from as well as a gesture pack. Look for the vendors on one of the panels when you land.

Now that you have your marching orders, get to it.

Brush up on your pirate speak because there will be an exam before the 19th.

Get There Before Midnight

Graffitiwear MM Aug2022_001

Do I look ready for the weekend? I’m sure there are a lot of things to do around the grid the next two days. I’ll be cool as a cucumber in this jumpsuit for sure! I’m a bit under the weather today so this will be a quickie!

Score one for yourself

The secret to getting yourself a fatpack of this sweet jumpsuit is that you have to head over to Graffitiwear and slap the MM board on the 2nd floor. The board says “Group Only” but at least for now you don’t need the group. Having said that, joining the Graffitiwear group costs $25L. You’ll get monthly gifts, access to the lucky board and Unlucky Kraken Dip and some quality garb in the deal. All of the clothing textures are original & hand drawn. The Graffitiwear Painted Innocense Jumpsuit comes with a texture change hud giving you six options for the pantsuit. This is another of those easy breezy outfits that’s a must have for the semi-tropical wilds of SL!

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh M
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Now get thee to that MM board!

Not So Tiny Dancer

Tori Toricello - Meva - Mina Final 8-28-2022 2_001 (1)

I just love playing dress up in Second Life! Thanks to a few free gifts celebrating Uber’s 8th Anniversary Round I was able to fulfill my dream of being a prima ballerina! I think the movie, White Nights, starring Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines started that seed.

And then I watched Mao’s Last Dancer. It’s an excellent film based on the memoirs of Li Cunxin, recounting his journey from a young, impoverished village boy destined to labor in the fields of China to a world-famous professional dancer. Even if you’re not a fan of ballet it’s a great story. Anywhoo, that’s why I’m playing ballerina today.

More Gifts!

Uber is celebrating it’s 8th Anniversary Round. I think you know what that means – FREE GIFTS!! It’s a little different this time because you go to each store to grab a gift.

  • Free bodysuit and gloves from TORI TORRICELLI. with sizes for Legacy/Perky and Maitreya/Petite
  • Free earrings from Meva (a necklace is included but not shown here).
  • Free hair from Mina in pictured color.

Don’t forget to check our handy spreadsheet of all the locations and gifts right HERE

I’m off to put together more looks together.

Peace out,

Peace Out Peeps

Bold llama Namaste Bitches_001

Who would have thought that one day the word “bitches” would come to be used as a term of endearment? Certainly not I. So I used my brother’s advice and performed a GTS (google that s_ _ t) to learn more about this.

According to Urban Dictionary “bitch is one of the most versatile words in the English language; it is used to express a multitude of emotions; anger, anticipation, despair, endearment, envy, excitement, fear, horror, joy, shock, surprise, warning; all achieved by one’s enunciation and intonation.” It’s all in HOW you say it, such as:

Endearment: Hey bitch!
Joy: Oh my god, bitch!
Anticipation: Bitch, guess what?

Get Thyself to Twelve!

Twelve is winding down. There are $12L offers at most booths. The Bold Llama T-shirt Company, one of our Fabulous Designers, has this fun tank top, Namaste Bitches, out as the $12L offer. All of the tanks are fun and you have to love them! Mikki McLain is the owner and creator of The Bold Llama and she never seems to run out of fun, witty sayings to adorn the tank tops.

Sizes

  • Classic Mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I paired my tank with a great skirt I won on a Lucky Board at Pink Cream Pie. The Mariah Skirt has a perfect fit that hugs your curves. (I love hugs!). This one is the pansy color and it’s so pretty. Sizes included are Freya, Maitreya, and Legacy. The Pink Cream Pie group costs $314 to join and you get all of these benefits:

• Monthly Group Gifts! (since 2016!)
• L$100 Monthly Credit
• 10% Store Credit on Purchases
• Giveaways
• Exclusive Lucky Boards

Happy Monday!

Groovin’ on a Sunday Afternoon

Cosmo July2022 GG - Yasum Boho_001 (1)

It’s another lazy Sunday so this is a quick post. After  you spend a couple of hours dancing and drinking you need a mellow day to recover. I tripped on over to Commune Utopia, found a relaxing spot and even got a free drink. Score! I’m not quite sure what this drink is but I’m thinking it’s a Cosmopolitan. Doesn’t matter, I’ll drink to any round!

Speaking of Cosmopolitans . . .

The latest round of Cosmopolitan opened on August 8th and will run until August 20th. If my memory serves me correctly the first event group I joined in SL was the Cosmopolitan group. The group is free to join and I highly recommend that you join and keep this one! There is usually at least one group gift per month and the birthday/anniversary and holiday presents are to die for!

My outfit is the Cosmopolitan group gift from Yasum. The Summer Boho top and pants are free for members of the group. This gift outfit is so well done. You know I love sparkly things and this exceptionally well textured outfit fits the bill. My brain has been telling me how beautiful this would be in RL. You get the top, jeans, and a belt to complete your look. It’s sized for Legacy & Maitreya bodies.

Time for more chillin’

Peace & luv,
