Sugar Bowl_001

If you’re looking for a sweet deal, it’s time to head to the Cart Wash Sale (if you haven’t already) and check out the 1 Hundred cart! This sexy vendor offers pretty and quirky and stylish minis, lingerie, and dresses that are sure to catch your eye. I showed off their free gift in my post {here} but I wanted to be sure to show off at least one of their fantastic 10L offerings as well!

I picked up this candy colored Just Me Mini dress for just 10L at the 1 Hundred Cart at the Cart Wash sale and I love the pretty yet sexy look. Be warned, it’s really short! If you bend over, you may show a little “cheek”!

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

New glasses

I added to my look by stopping by @rOrO and picking up their Third Life Gift — these “Love N Hate” Sunglasses which come in either gold of Silver. Even though my dress was gold, I opted to wear the silver glasses because I liked the contrasting looks. These are modifiable and I was able to get a nice fit with a little stretching and playing and voila! If you are not already a member, the Third Life Group is 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid. It’s well worth the 10L fee!

She’s a Vision

Leopard Vision_001

“I’ll wait all night to meet her.
I’ll wait all night to see her smile.
I’ll wait all night to meet her.

She’s a vision, she’s a vision, she’s a vision…”

Visionary…

There’s a new group gift at Vision and you don’t want to miss out on this freebie. Just teleport to the Vision main-store and wear your store group tag to pick up the Tessa Jeans Skirt. It comes in a leopard print with a slightly purple sheen (so I paired it with an older lavender top that I had in my inventory) and the skirt is really gorgeous.

When you get to Vision, if you’re not already a group member, be aware that there are two store groups. One is free to join and that is the group that you need to get the group gift. The other is the VIP group and requires a fee. You can join the VIP group to get access to the lucky letter boards if you choose, but you don’t need the VIP group to get the group gift.

Skirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Limit8 but not Limited

Deer me... 1

Limit8 is a new-to-me event though it’s obviously been around a while because this month is its anniversary round with free gifts! If you join the Limit8 group (free to join) you can pick up gifts at each of the booths!

A new dress

I stopped by the Ella booth and picked up a new free dress. It only comes in a Maitreya fit, but you get two colors: Military (shown) and floral (not shown). Both are very pretty.

Shoes too!

Stop by the Dirty Princess booth for new free heels. These Darling Princess Heels in black come with gold details and you’ll get them to fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The bracelets…

I added these chevron bracelets by Bubble which were also a free gift at Limit8. Just stop by the Bubble booth to pick them up.

One last touch

I couldn’t resist adding one last touch to my outfit. I adore this free little deer bauble choker necklace by Burial. It is delicate and simple and yet very detailed. It’s simply stunning and my favorite part of this outfit. I had to show it off! Be sure to stop by the event to pick up this free giveaway!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Afternoon Tea

Tea_001

I like to have a cup of coffee in the morning, but in the afternoons I’m generally a tea drinker. I especially like a hot tea with milk. It’s a habit I picked up after a visit to London many years ago, and I never gave it up. I found the perfect little spot for tea at an art sim and stopped to take a picture. I think I found the perfect “tea dress” to sit down for that perfect cup!

Flowing flowers

Glitterati by Sapphire puts out a monthly gift like clockwork to make their one-time 100L group join fee worth it. This month you get the pretty flowered frock I’m showing off in the picture. It’s perfect for the last few warm days before we head into the cool days of fall. It comes in all your favorite sizes.

Available sizes:

  • Standard XS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Circular

Sometimes things come full circle and as I was looking for a little something to add to my outfit, I found these cute suspended circle earrings at Baubles! by Phe to add to my look. They are the currently offered as a free SL Frees & Offers group gift at the store, just don that tag and pick them up. They come with a color change hud as well that offers 4 metal choices (brass, gold, silver, and bronze).
