Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

A Rogue Smoke

A Rouge Smoke

I decided to take a smoke break today, especially after Loki stole my spotlight yesterday… and all because he shirked responsibility and left me holding the bag. The cat food bag that is! Lucky for me, I was able to pick up a set of amazing pipes called Rouge Pipes in 3 colors at [since 1975] as a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift. They are shaped like lipstick applicators, there are three different colors in the box, and they have a gentle smoke particle as well as a soft glowing ember for realism.

I needed a great outfit… something sultry but equally mysterious, maybe also a bit Gothic… and found just what I was looking for at GAALL. This Mayfair Outfit is a dress and comes with the matching slink boots. What I love is that you also get a color change hud for six color choices for the outfit. This outfit is a real zinger too as far as fit. It is mesh and comes in not only the standard mesh sizes for fit, but also Maitreya, Physique, Venus, Isis, and Freya. And you get all this for just 1 little Linden as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt.

Now, I will forewarn you, I did find the dress to be a bit short for my modest tastes. It’s definitely long enough to cover your assets… but I paired it with a set of leggings to suit me. You could certainly wear it alone, though!

A Rouge Smoke 2

While I was at GAALL, I noticed an Easter Egg that was selling for only 1L as well, and realized it was part of the Easter Hunt… and was pleased to discover a trio of beautiful dresses inside! They are African inspired dresses with a mesh main dress in standard sizes, and Maitreya applier sleeves. I wore dress option 1 which is a really nice green design. There is also a blue print, and a black and white zebra print in the egg if you find it.

Who’s that girl

PumeC & FAC

New skins, new mesh head, new dresses I hardly recognize myself!

Mesh heads are all the craz right now and yes I had to jump on the fashion band wagon and give them a try.

PumeC couldn’t have made it any easier to do just that. In her latest very generous FREE GG Helga-Mesh Head. There is a 199L fee to join but with the amount of generous applier packed GG gifts you are given it is so well worth the investment. With Helga you aren’t just getting the mesh head you also get a matching skin, eyelashes, eyebrows, cleavage and soooo many appliers, Slink, Belleza, TNP, Baby Bump, Lolas, Ghetto Booty, Maitreya, Banned, Phat Azz, and WOW. You are even given a shape tho I opted to use mine and didn’t even have to make any adjustments to make the eyes fit into place properly tho you will need a pair of mesh eyes which there are several pair anywhere from 0L on up on Marketplace. With my all new look of course I needed a new dress and FA Creations (FAC) new FREE mesh GG Kiara with a FREE group join is a sassy little number that shows off my new skin oh so well and yes you get the necklace too. Also as you can see Fall has already set in and the wind has the leaves twirling around me. Its such a blustery day the leaves even stuck in my hair LOL well with the help of a cute FREE gift from Persefona at the Color Me Project Autumn I picked up. No group join needed for these FREE leaves. BTW the leaf worked just fine on my mesh head nose no adjustments needed. Color Me Project runs til the 20th but I am not sure if that is the morning of or til the end of the day so lets say get there by the 19th to be safe.

PumeC & Gaall

While I was picking up this GG at PumeC I spied a new skin GG as well so I grabbed that too for those of you who may not want to get into the mesh heads. This Ursula skin is a lovely lighter skin and yes you guessed right jam packed with so many appliers, all the ones listed above. Appy your hearts out ladies. Plus eyebrows, teeth and cleavage. I lucked out Gaall has their new FREE Sept GG out, group is FREE to Join. Its a lovely mesh blue denim dress that compliments this skin very nicely and even works with the necklace from my FAC dress, score! I paired it with flats but it could work just as nicely with heals. I also found this cute FREE umbrella pose that included a color hud at the Icons Of Style booth at the Color Me Project Autumn. Its so windy I may get blown away tho! No group needed to pick up your FREE umbrella and remember get there by the 19 to be safe.

Just a special mention in case you were wondering about the leaves which yes are actually animated they are also from Color Me Project Autumn at the IOS decor booth they are 75L each for the single leaf colors and there are 3 different leaf styles, maple, oak & linden leaves.

Ok a full make over takes alot of of a gal so I am gonna relax and see everyone next Sat with some new goodies!

Bohemian Rhapsody

Hello everyone.. if you havent been to the Boho Culture Fair yet then what are you waiting for? There are so many dollarbies and free gifts there for you to enjoy! Love has already covered a few of them in this post but as you only have until the end of October to get these great items, I thought I would give you all a gentle nudge in the right direction! To find the prizes, most are inside a little sunflower found inside the store. Others have put out gift boxes.

This beautiful dress is by Bomshie and available for L$2 at the Fair. I am completely in love with the Tartessos Sandals for SLink Flat Feet by GAALL that are a dollarbie in their store. My bracelet set is the dollarbie you can find at DEW
Untitled

The gorgeous Jewelled Headpiece I am wearing is by Grumble and matches my Lashes Bracelets by Lashes Bracelet by Petit Chat really well I think! The Lapy Shirt is by Mimosa while the Gypsy Skirt is by Stars Fashion and comes with a HUD that can change the textures to three different choices. Finally the Portland Sandals for SLink Flat Feet are by Essenz!
Untitled

My beautiful skin is the adorable Kanon skin which is the new group gift by Angelica. There are SLink appliers included aswell as a version with and without the teeth on the skin and a browless option! This skin is so cute, it could be my new favourite! There is a L$300 fee to join the group but you can find this skin and the last group gift skin Suzi available to pick up for free once you join.
Untitled

My nails are the Bollywood SLink nails set by La Boheme that are free at the Boho Culture Fair. They come with both manicure and pedicure and below is a picture of the HUD so you can see the other beautiful colour options available!
