It’s Easy Being Green

Sunflowers

Real life has been crazy busy for the past week! I really needed a chance to get out of my head for a while, so I took a ride in the fresh country air at Le Sixieme Sens. As you can see, the sunflowers are in full bloom, and nothing says “happy” like a field of sunflowers! ūüôā

Going Green

Earlier in the week, I was looking for a gift to show you when I accidentally stumbled into a new-to-me store called I.M. Collection. I never did find the gift I was originally looking for, but what I did find is just as good!

The I.M. Collection in-world group is free to join (for now), and there are 3 4 gifts on the wall Рone of which is this cute and comfy green ensemble. Belle includes the trousers and top and is sized for Maitreya and Slink (Physique and Hourglass) mesh bodies.

UPDATE: I just got a notice that the group fee will be raised from 0L to 50L very soon, so be sure you join quickly if you want to join for free!

I’m off to do a little more riding and relaxing. Have a wonderful weekend, fabulous readers!

Bunny Hop

bunny5_001ff

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! ūüėģ

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie¬†from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! ūüėÄ

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” ūüėČ

But it’s all for a good reason:¬†Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins,¬†Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and¬†fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay!¬†(Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty¬†Tule and Leather Dress¬†from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store:¬†Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch¬†is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ‚̧

Say, “Cheese!

Say "Cheese!"

After a week of having no cell phone, I was so excited to get my replacement phone in the mail today! In fact, I’ve been running around taking pictures with it all day… and making a bit of a nuisance of myself, I think. I’m still sad that I lost a bunch of photos that I neglected to back up, but I guess some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. Hopefully, the 99 cents a month that I’ve decided to fork over to upgrade my iCloud account will keep this from happening in the future. ūüėõ

Ok, enough babbling about my sad phone story.

Sweater Weather

This cute skirt and sweater combo is the March group gift from RiR Life. I love the detailed texture of the sweater; it’s romantic and sporty and perfect for those late winter/early spring days when you still need a little warmth. The outfit comes as one piece and is sized for:

  • Standard Classic Avatar (one size)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Smile!

I found this cute selfie pose by Mirukuti on the Marketplace for just 5L. It does not come with a phone prop, so I used the one that came with my Vista Animations Miriam AO. I’m sure any phone prop would work fine, though.

Thank goodness these deer are being so patient with me. Cheese! ūüėÄ

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

nc5_001f

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! And what a crazy, bizarre week this has been! The “highlight” of my week was accidentally tossing my cell phone in the washer with a load of laundry. GAAAH! My poor baby is dead, but at least she smells good. ūüė•

To cheer myself up, I grabbed Finn and headed over to Summer Trace for a relaxing walk in the sun. Finn had a grand old time chasing the birds (which she never caught), and I enjoyed the pretty flowers and ocean breeze. Ahhhh.

Dressed Up to the Eyes

My dress is the latest Fab Free group gift from No Cabide. The Jayne Mini Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP

You also get an amazing texture-change HUD which includes 10 dress fabrics, as well as 10 strap textures. To grab your gift, activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag and pop on over to No Cabide.

To See Your Shoes and Your Spirits Rise

Continuing my Friday theme… my cute flats happen to be from fri.day! The Bebe Flats¬†(in peachy) are only 50L today for Fifty Linden Friday¬†and are sized for Slink and Maitreya mesh feet. I love the detailed stitching and pretty, feminine bows. ūüôā

While you are there, be sure to have a look around the store. Fri.day is having their Semi-Annual Sale from March 3-10, and everything in the store is 50% off (excluding gachas and gift cards). This is a great time to stock up on shoes for spring!

Here’s to a calm, stress-free weekend!¬†ūüėé

Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their¬†Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime¬†was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. ūüėé

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the¬†public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from¬†Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ‚̧

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame).¬†ūüė≥

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s¬†Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. ūüėÄ

Love is in the Air

Ashmoot

Half-Hearted…

As the dreaded happy Valentine‚Äôs season fast approaches, we wanted to show off his and her matching shirts to kick off this horrible joyous holiday. I wanted to wear the ‚ÄúI‚Äôm With Stupid‚ÄĚ matching shirts, but Love refused to put on the ‚ÄúStupid‚ÄĚ shirt and it didn‚Äôt come in my size‚Ķ so‚Ķ we are both wearing the I ‚̧ My Girl/I ‚̧ My Boy shirts from¬†AsHmOoT.¬†These shirts are FREE to AsHmOoT members and the group is FREE to join. Get your special friend to wear it with you, even if you only care just a half a heart.¬†In case you hadn‚Äôt noticed, Love is on my shoulders, off the ground, in the air‚Ķ. Love is IN the air‚Ķ GET IT… GET.IT?? ¬†<cricket sounds> ¬†So much for that joke working‚Ķ. I‚Äôve been told that SLife is all about balance (and someone needs to quit wiggling around on my shoulders if she wants me to keep¬†MY¬†balance). The way she keeps her balance is to pretend her shirt says I ‚̧ My Dog.¬†ūüźē

Ashmoot Full

Loves a Good Challenge…

Also don‚Äôt forget the photo challenge that begins on February 1st . The theme is “Love”. Show love anyway you want… (PG-13 please) love is sweet, love sucks, Love is a great and powerful boss lady (who is getting heavy). ¬†This round will be generously hosted by Carrie Snowpaw of Snowpaws! She is donating a 3,000L giftcard to Snowpaw’s Store for the Winner of the Challenge and a 1,500L giftcard to Snowpaw’s Store for the Runner-up!

We want to see all your mushy pictures and gush all over them.

Tranquil Lavender

Snapshot_003
In Pru’s post [HERE], it would seem she was¬†conjuring up her “inner fierceness”,¬†while today¬†–¬† I was seeking just the opposite in my search of¬†silence, and¬†tranquility.¬† I think I have found¬†that sense of repose¬†in my visit¬†to The Summer Trace¬†Sim.¬†¬†While I ¬†tiptoed through the¬†warm¬† powdery sand, my¬†new cotton frock blew freely in the salty sea air¬†as the cooling¬†ocean waves lapped gently at my feet.¬† I managed to collect a few fancy¬†shells on the shore, and tucked them into my pocket.¬†No idea what I will do with them… they were just pretty :).¬† If this isn’t serenity…¬† I don’t know what is.

The Cotton Frock

I was glad to have found this darling Edi Dress in¬†Lavender by Belle Epoque¬†as a free¬†gift at The Vintage Fair¬†as it was perfect for my Second Life outing today!¬† You can find this right at Belle Epoque’s display, priced at 0L with no need to join the group.¬† This dress is specifically designed for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, however it may work with others too.¬† Give it a try – it’s free afterall!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I¬†don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.¬† Of course I tried to sneak¬†his….¬† His sweater is always the softest warmest option.¬† It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch¬†had a whole fatpack of¬†their Agnetha Winter¬†Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on¬†a lucky letter “L”.¬†¬†¬†Included are¬†eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I¬†found these fabulous Vintage¬†Jeans at¬†Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.¬† This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that¬†I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again¬†:).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
