Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Far Far Away

Far Far Away_001

Addicted

It’s safe to say I’m addicted… to the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I visited Stix this time and came away with a beautiful fantasy skin called Yuki Addicted for just 5L. It includes system layers plus…

Appliers for:

  • Omega for Catwa & Body
  • Omega for LAQ/Logo & Body
  • Omega for LeLutka & Body
  • Makeup Only applier

You might remember that Pru showcased the beautiful Yuki as Syx skin here which is the current group gift at Stix. This Yuki Addicted addition of the skin is another fantasy version which is just as beautiful and is in pink shades with pink eyebrows, pink cheeks and pink lipstick. I couldn’t resist it! I think it would be fun for everyday, and it is definitely perfect for roleplay!

Far Far Away

I went fishing… far far away. Okay. So I just went to Sn@tch. There is about a week left to pick up the current fishing prize before it is changed out next Wednesday. Currently is is a lovely little outfit called “Holiday in the Sun”.

You get the full kit and caboodle with jewelry, make up, shoes, tops, omega applier pants and so on. The mesh shirts come in the following colors: Pink (shown), Beige, Blue, Peach, Seafoam, White, and Violet. You’ll also get a texture change hud for the pants and the pants come in: Pink (shown), white, lavender, sky, seafoam, and peach.

Sizes available for the shirt:

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

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

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

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

A Ride in the Country

Decked out country_001

I’ve been exploring again, and this time my dear friend took me horseback riding at a sim called Glanduin. You arrive and there are several areas on the sim where you can click a horse rezzer so that you can rezz a horse to ride to sight-see around the country side of the sim and its beautiful views!

I tried to put together a bit of a country girl look for the occasion, and with the help of a few lucky finds, I was able to do just that!

Three Tees!

Graffitiwear always puts out quality gifts each month, and August was no exception. They sent out three free fitmesh Tees with Maitreya autohide included as their August 2017 subscriber gift. (If you’re not a current subscriber just go to the store and slap that subsciber to get your gift.) For my picture, I donned the Tribal Tee, but I included a copy of the vendor add at the end of my blog post, so you could also see the Orange Tee and the Floral Tee as well. These fit like a charm and were so pretty!

Four skirts!

One Creations has out a generous free gift exclusively for FabFree group members. It’s a four pack of skirts in different colors. Like the Graffitiwear shirts, these skirts come in one fitmesh size, but I didn’t have any trouble getting them to fit as pretty as a picture. The four colors you get are brown (shown), red, blue, and black.

And shoes!

The Pirate Hunt also started today, so I stopped by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes to see if there happened to be a pair of shoes I could work into my look. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoes for the hunt matched my outfit like a charm! For just 2L and a bit of hunting time, I picked up the Fara Fantasy flats. They come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreaya, and Classic feet, and could match a variety of outfits with their muted blue and brown color scheme.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

A Cheeky Find

Cheeky Rose

EvelineInTheBox sent out a special new gift to celebrate 1,000 members… and if you hurry you can pick up this free Nora dress in pink. The group is free to join. The detailing on this dress is fantastic. It has a pretty cut and neckline with a floral ribbon edging around the hem and sleeves. I realized belatedly that I should have given you a picture of the back of the dress, as the back is a criss-cross of ribbons for a beautiful, feminine look, with just a touch of butt-cleavage (for the daring ones!).

This dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Cheeky Rose 2

A cheeky find.

I’m still enjoying the Aloha Fair, though I’m not sure how much longer you have to pick up all the great gifts. I found this pretty necklace by Cheeky called Boho Rose as a 1L gift and it matched my dress just perfectly. I picked it up and found it fit over most of my mesh dresses and has a pretty rose metallic finish. It’s a steal for just 1L!

Be sure to visit the Aloha Fair before it is over… the variety of beautiful dollarbie gifts is just amazing!

Blueberries at the Gulf of Lune

Cabin Days_001

A friend has been taking me exploring and I’ve found some beautiful sims lately this way. Just this week Gulf of Lune made my list as one of my top favorites (thank you dear friend for showing it to me). It’s a wetlands recreation complete with elk and ducks and country cabins.

New gift at Blueberry.

When I saw the new free to all gift at Blueberry (hurry and get it before it’s gone!), I knew I had my perfect chance to take some pictures at Gulf of Lune. The lacy top was pretty and sexy, but also sort of has that flexible look that could go casual, racy, urban, or country, and I used the (amazingly generous) texture change hud to choose a pretty country blue and pose on one of the cabins at the Sim.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Bonus!

Not only does the free Blueberry gift include the top in a long version, but it also includes the gift in a short version that you could easily use for a bralette. And with so many options on the color change palette, you’d never run out of lingerie styles! I’ve included a picture below of the “short” version of the gift as well so you can see it. It comes in all the same sizes as the “long” version.

Cabin Days 2_001

I couldn’t resist…

… showing you just how much versatility you will be getting with this free gift. This is a picture of the texture change palette that comes with the new Blueberry gift top. As you can see you will get the texture change colors for the top in both “lace” and “plain” as well as some metallic colors. You’ll also be able to change the colors of the ties on the shirt. The possibilities are almost endless! This is a very generous free gift! Be sure to get this one before it disappears!

Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!
