The Radio Grind at the Wash Cart Sale shows me I don’t need clothes to paint.

Well look at this, it’s Thursday already! I have to admit, my week didn’t start out the best, I was feeling a little under the weather. When feeling like that, there are a few things that make me feel better…finding stuff to show all you fab readers, being creative, and cats. Yup, you heard me. So for my feature post this week, I was able to combine all 3! Go me!

painting1

First of all, I have to tell you about my super cute outfit…well, I’ll call it an outfit, but in reality, it’s a painter’s smock, a cute bra and pantie set, and paint, lot’s of it, which inspired my colourful painting of cats. My Painted Lady look is courtesy of The Rebakery for Radio Grind at The Wash Cart sale that I know you all know is still going on. For a whole L$10, you get a multitude of system layers of body paint, from your head, to your hands to your legs. A bra and pantie set, on your underwear layers, and a mesh smock in the standard sizes. I love the little paint smudges you can have on your face, in RL, I would totally have paint on my face. Here is the Direct TP to the Radio Grind Cart. I will put a picture of the Cart itself at the end of this post so you can check out the other fun offerings they have.

The next piece to my puzzle was a new skin, and with it being the start of another month, new, free group gifts abound! I went with the lovely Gardenia skin from WoW Skins, which is the new September group gift. You get this skin in every tone, with cleavage and noncleavage versions of each. I happen to be wearing tan, without cleavage. For a one time fee of L$350, you can join their group and grab up this beauty, not to mention a box of past group gifts sitting right beside the new one, as well as have access to group only midnight manias, and lucky letter boards. Don’t you just love the pretty pale pink of the lips? This is a very natural look, which I really gravitate towards.

painting2My final piece, is the fun hair I have on. It is another free group gift, this time from Elikatira. The Lena hair, with the exclusives texture hud that you won’t be able to buy, was sent out to group members on the 1st. It is unrigged mesh, so you can adjust it to fit practically any size head. The group is L$250 to join, but as that is the price of one pack of hair, it pays for itself immediately! I love a great short hairstyle. You may see this on me quite often 🙂

 ** OK Fab readers. I did some investigation after hearing that the Elikatira group was not open to join, and messaged Elika herself. The group is currently closed, but has been for quite some time, due to Elika not being inworld very much. She did not want people having to pay the join fee and then not get so much as a notice from her, due to her absence. Fear not though…she is in the midst of preparing her new store location, and once it’s open (within a month, she figures) she will re-open her group! Sorry to have teased you with this gift, but now at least you know what to expect in the future.

See, I was able to get creative, albeit a little messy, paint some cats, and show off some wonderful stuff for all you fabulous readers! Yup, made me feel much, much better. OK, I am off for now, but you know I will be back. Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Snapshot_002 Good evening Fabulouses!  Tonight I am swinging by to show off my new Happy Spring Garden Table Set that I picked up as a free group gift at Follow Us!  This awesome new low prim group gift includes the table, chairs with several natural poses, and a menu that allows you to rez and hold drinks.  The pretty macaroons on the table are included as well (I CALL THE ROSE ONE!).  The Follow Us group is 40L to join, but will seem like a drop in the bucket with multiple group gifts and exclusive group offers available in the VIP room.

My dress, which is called Edge Ice Roses is available as a free group gift at Siss Boom in both gold and silver.  The group is now 250L to join, so I hope you stayed in the group after my last Siss Boom post because this dress is adorbs!!  If you are not a current group member, don’t be discouraged by the fee!  There are a ton of previous group gifts available after you join the group making it well worth the lindens.

When Life Gives You Lemons

Snapshot_005
Hiya Fabulous readers 🙂 I know it’s my usual thing to show you free-ish clothing, accessories, skins and hair, but I have been enjoying putting little scenes together with free and low cost furniture and decorative items lately too.  I hope you can find something  you like to spruce your own pixel place up.  Today in my blog post entry I am displaying to you, the latest group gift at Apple Fall and a sweet group offer by Follow Us too.

I am a collector of the Apple Fall Cakes lol.. I don’t know what it is about them aside from the fact that they make me drool, but I just love them and when I see one in a gacha set, I play for it – but this time the new cake is free!!  Apple Fall is celebrating 4000 inworld members and has placed out a special group gift that includes the delicious looking Lemon Drizzle Cake and refreshing Lemonade Bucket.  The Lemonade bucket gives out can of lemonade on touch.  This group is free to join!

The cozy pouf I am seated upon is a 10L group offer by Follow Us and has a super cute lemon cream cupcake on the blanket draped over the stool.  If you are into girly décor – this is a must have with 5 animated poses in the menu and an adjust option.  The Follow Us group is 40L to join, but there are a ton of gifts and offers available making the fee well worth it.

D’awwww!

Snapshot_002Good evening Fabulouses! OMGosh how cute are these puppies?  My friend Grace Selene sent me a message as soon as I logged in tonight and told me about these uber sweet decorative dogs that you can pick up as a free group gift at !! Follow US !! .  They are called Mr. & Mrs. Halloween and are 6 prims, rezzed together.  These little guys even come with transfer perms, but…  be warned – you can only pick up the gifts once, so if you give yours away – that’s it!  The group is 40L to join, but there are a TON of previous group gifts to pick up and heck, I’d pay way more than 40L for this one gift alone!
Snapshot_003I also wanted to tell you about my dress today because it is not only mega hot, but it’s also just 1L for The Bling Hunt at AUSHK’A & Co. and comes in a light blue colour as well.  All you need to do is purchase the hidden gold crown for 1L and both dresses are yours!

I’ve accessorized the tunic and leggings with our next FREE gift, CC Stingy Brim Fedora (Signature Gold), from Couture Chapeau.  I LOVE fedoras and when I saw this on, I knew I had to use it…it is unisex (scripted resizer) and the texturing is fantastic!

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. 🙂 My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. 🙂

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! 😉
