That Familiar Feeling

That Familiar Feeling

Ok, this chick needs some retail therapy.  Shocking, I know.  The call of the shopping bag beckons again!

Feelin’ Fruity

Tooty Fruity is currently free to join!  That’s exciting news, since they give some awesome monthly group gifts.  Not that it’s usually super expensive to join (49L for as long as I can remember) so this is just a nice little treat.  It will be free til the end of the month.  I got this quite lovely shirt as their latest group gift.  You can just see the iridescent polka dots that shimmer in the light.  Is black not your thang?  Well, luckily for you there is an extensive HUD to change to all sorts of lovely colours.  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

FLFin

While I was putting my outfit together, I looked through the items on sale for Fifty Linden Fridays, and happily I stopped by Wasabi for this fabulous hair (in a full fatpack of colours) as well as Erratic for these amazing leather pants (there’s also a gold version!).  They’re technically only available until midnight tonight, so head on over quick for a cute and affordable lewk.

Pant Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Happy Friday!

Sweet Like Honey

Sweet Like HoneyHappy Friday! I hope you’re having a good start to your weekend. I am because I have new hair and skin to show you!

Fri-Yay

Have I mentioned that Fifty Linden Friday is probably my favorite of the weekend sales events? Well, it is. You just can’t beat all of the great designers who participate and 50L is a steal. Today I snagged up this great hair from Doe. The back is a sweet bun and the front is fun and messy. It’s perfect for dressed up casual or dressed down formal. I honestly haven’t done it justice. It’s way prettier in world and definitely worth a demo, especially at just 50L for FLF today.

Like Honey

I love the sweet kawaii faces on the skins over at Heaux, they’re just so naturally pretty. There’s a new group gift out but I’m showing one of the older ones. The gift area has a handful of group gifts available in a variety of shades and options, and the group is 200L to join.

In Your Eyes

In Your EyesThis incredibly close up picture has a lot to share. Really!

The Light, The Heat

Shall I wax poetic about eyes? Eyes are soooo important to your look, y’all. Good quality eyes are the perfect finishing touch and such a vital detail. If you’re not sure where to find some good, affordable, quality eyes then Yoshi is an excellent place to start. The group is 10L to join and these gorgeous, silvery, reflective eyes are the most recent free group gift. There are also lots of really fantastic “regular” (ha what a funny word to use in SL) and fantasy eyes set out as free group gifts too. There’s certainly something that will suit your look. AND it couldn’t be simpler, because they include appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega plus some mesh and BOM versions. You won’t regret it!

A Song

Speaking of no regrets, I’ve been trying to scale down my skin purchases lately. I mean, they’re all on sale but buying up every gorgeous skin I see adds up. That means maybe one or two purchases per week from my favorite skin designers, if any at all. Hey, it’s a start! Glam Affair put out this irresistible face for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday and it’s still there today. Yup, 50L will get you Song in the basic line in the whole range of skin tones, with and without eyebrows, PLUS blush a bunch of makeup add-ons! No regrets!

Fine Lines

Last but not least, I’m showing off some makeup from Vizatti Beau. I’m not good at makeup in either life but I think this finishes things off nicely. the group at Vizatti Beau is free to join and I’m wearing one of the eyeliners from the Overheated Collection which is a free group gift. There are some other colorful and dramatic sets to chose from while you’re there, also available as free group gifts.

This Much Is True

This Much Is TrueI’m a big fan of Valentina E. So many of the items there have a touch of class and elegance, and they are all exceptionally well made. It was a no brainer to hop over and pick up this dress for 50L that’s out for today’s Fifty Linden Friday. It’s in this pretty violet color and in sizes for Legacy and Maitreya Lara.

And my eyelids are heavy so that’s enough for tonight. I just didn’t want you to miss out. ❤

Are We Out of the Woods?

Are We Out of the Woods

Just a little walk through nature today, FabFree. Wearing cute (free and sale) things, of course!

Spicy

Wasabi has been killing it with their new releases and sale offerings lately. They’ve long been one of the top names that pops into my head when I need to not be bald and I’m loving everything that they’ve been offering. The hair I’m wearing here is what Wasabi has out for today’s Fifty Linden Friday. It’s a super cute hat and pigtails that make me want to go run errands or be one with nature or something. I was really impressed with all the customization options too, besides loads of hair colors you also can change 3 parts of the hat and the hair ties to so many different colors. There’s a lot of value here for only 50L!

Daydream

The Bold Llama is always the obvious choice for cute and sassy tank tops. Nice textures and fun sayings? Yes, please. This one is really great because it’s the new free gift for our very own FabFree group. The FabFree group is always free to join so you just need to head on over to The Bold Llama and it’s yours for nothing at all. There are a LOT of sizes included too, specifically:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Fitmesh sizes XS-XL

One Last Thing

I love exploring the locations that designers create at their mainstores, and the one I’m at today is Wasabi. Head down the hill and there’s a whole gorgeous area to wander. I’m not sure what makes it so magical. Is it the lights in the trees? The beautiful scenery? The proximity to great hair? There’s no way of knowing, but it’s an excellent place to enjoy. ❤

I’ll Keep Your Memory Vague

I'll Keep Your Memory Vague
Hello! Just a quickie for you tonight, with a couple of really great quality pieces that you’ve just gotta see!

Polka Dots

I  won’t mince words – my top is free. I got it at Wellmade. It’s just such a great quality piece that I’d be silly NOT to add to my collection. This is a free gift for the Mesh Body Friends group which is free to join. There’s a HUD of polka dotted hues and these sizes:

  • Kahlene Erika
  • Kupra
  • eBody Reborn
  • Kupra Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Ripped Denim

Yeah, I can’t get enough jean things. I’m just a sucker for something that’s made really really well, so I knew immediately upon looking through the Fifty Linden Friday list that these shorts would soon be mine. Tetra offers up various shades (I picked Monsoon) for 50L each and each includes a HUD to change button/rivet colors and three waist styles all for sizes:

  • eBody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I don’t know how long Tetra will leave their FLF item out, but I know that you can get it today for only 50L.

The Simple Things in Life

The Simple Things in Life

Happy Saturday! I’ve found loads of great things at the weekend sales that I want to share with you. As you know, these are often time sensitive, so let’s get right to it!

Friday

My skin is by Glam Affair, and you can still get it right now for the special Fifty Linden Friday price of 50L. We’re talking an enormous pack of BOM skin tones, each with and without eyebrows, and even including some pretty makeup options. Glam Affair skins are always lovely but this one I’ve fallen extra head over heels for. Sigh.

Saturday

And then there’s Elikatira. Did you know that they sell clothes, too, and not just hair? I thought it was just hair. Or maybe the clothing is new? I don’t know. I have had a long affinity for Elikapeka Tiramisu’s work. It’s always just been so lovely, no matter the brand. Do you remember ETD? I might be showing my age here but ETD was the best. I remember when it closed and I bought up as much as I could at the closing sale. After that was [e] I think, and it’s just as fantastic in the current Elikatira incarnation. And now with clothes, too? Squeeee! Alright, quit fangirling, Allison. Right. This maxi dress is the Saturday Sale offering from Elikatira and it’s flawless. There are various packs to chose from, each including 4 patterns. ‘Twas a hard choice, but here we are. It’s available today for 75L per color pack. Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Reborn

Weekend

My last sale purchase is the tattoo that I’m wearing, from Vegas Tattoo. I really like tattoos in SL and Vegas is one of my go to places. Don’t miss this pretty design, being offered for 60L currently as part of the Happy Weekend Sale.

Free!

I try to include at least one completely free item in my posts, as a general rule, and today it’s this cute pose from mirinae! It’s from a pose pack that I previously mentioned here, and all of the things that I told you about in that post are still free with no group join required.

Dilettante or Not?

Shanti Cheeky Wow. Exile FLF 7-8-2022_001

It’s another Fabulous Friday readers! I get to play in SL all day because in addition to the heat wave the monsoon season has arrived. Not really monsoons but lots of thunderstorms; it just feels like a monsoon. In addition to my shopping errands this morning I did a bit of exploring and found a serene harbor in a sim named Midnight Oasis. I haven’t explored the entire place yet but what I did visit is stunning. Everywhere you turn there are magnificent Mediterranean vistas and many places that photographers will love. I highly recommend a visit.

Free Spirited

Cheeky Wow! started a new round on July 7th. Many of the booths have at least one item for $69L and several have free gifts. One of my long time favorite designers, Shanti Bohemian, has a booth there. My carefree top and skirt, the Poppy Bohemian outfit, is Shanti’s $69L offer at the event. Its the kind of outfit you want to wear when you feel like twirling around because you’ll look so darling. The lovely texture on it is very detailed.

Sizes

  • Bellezza Isis, Freya, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic Curvy, Fine

Baby Blue Ain’t Your Color

Says who? I mean I adore the Keith Urban song but who says I can’t have blue hair if I want it. Exile‘s Fifty Linden Friday offer solved that dilemma. Kate is a casual style with a dark to light gradient in 5 colors. The blue really compliments my outfit.

Another Score on Shoes!

Pure Poison offers this striking pair of shoes today for Fifty Linden Friday. Exquisite barely describes the Luisa Sandals! Decorated with two rows of delicate flowers the included hud is massive allowing you to change many different parts to match whatever you’re wearing.

Here In This Minute

Here In This MinuteHappy weekend! My happy place is next to an ocean and I was psyched to put on something cute and free (which surprisingly was not a bikini) and spend some time there!

A Hunting We Will Go

Guys, I tried to do a hunt. If I’m hunting then you know it’s for something really really amazing. As we’ve discussed recently, I’m more of a wait-in-front-of-a-lucky-chair kind of a girl. But this hunt at Luas and Una is so worth it! Aline told us about it already here. There are little golden stars hidden around the sim (I had to get pretty close for them to rezz but maybe that’s just my laptop). You buy them for free, there is no group join required, and there are really lots of excellent prizes. I’m wearing Avery and it comes with a short version of the skirt also, as well as the belt and harness that I’m wearing. The fit is only for Maitreya. I’m not sure how long the hunt lasts, the signs don’t say, but trust me you don’t wanna miss this one.

But Still Glam

Glam Affair is part of today’s Fifty Linden Friday sale. It’s a lovely basic skin line with a bunch of different tones, all with or without brows. 50L today only. You know I can’t pass that up!

No chance that I’m leaving here without you

No chance that I'm leaving here without youTruth is part of the Fifty Linden Friday sale today! Wait, don’t go yet, come back! Like I don’t even need to say more though, do I? This hair is sooo perfectly beachy and I’m in SLove. Long and flowy and tropical, yes, please. And only 50L. It comes with a style HUD, a load of colors, and you can change the color of the flower too. All for only 50L. I’m having trouble even forming complete sentences. And if I haven’t mentioned yet, it’s only 50L.

P.S. I also can’t stop walking around the grid wearing this ring pop. I got it at Sofish, for free. There are some candy machines by the group gifts and you can get all different flavors either to wear like this or in a wrapped package to hold. It’s the little things, ya know?

Okay I guess that’s it, you can go now. You’re probably on your way to Truth already, but if not there’s the LM one more time. ❤
