Just Another Day of Basic Witchery

SorbetBasicWitch
Hello Fab Friends! Have you heard about The Second Life Hocus Pocus Event?  Until November 5th you can hop around to different participating shops and try your magic on some really great items.

What you need to do is…

Either visit The Hocus Pocus Event Blog for the locations and prize listing, or you can pick up a handy TP HUD on marketplace.  When you get to the vendors at participating shops, you need to say the magic words in local “hocus pocus” and it tells you if your magic is too weak or if you’ve won a prize.  If you are just one of those “basic witches”, you can pay the vendor 50L when your magic fails like I had to…  You can test your magic every 24 hours, so don’t go buying all this stuff on the first try if it doesn’t work out!

Just be patient and keep trying

The Ava Spooky Edition Dress is available at Sorbet in a fatpack of different prints for the Hocus Pocus Event in Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass and Maitreya Lara mesh body sizes.  I’ve included the ad below so you can see all of the prints.

Lessons Learned and Freebies Found

MimisGizzaA five star resort they said!  Expansive sandy beach, luxury spa, valet service, free wifi, turn down service, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor pools as well as lush green gardens.  It all sounded so perfect for an impromptu overnight mini-vacation to unwind and be pampered.  The real excitig news is that it was HALF PRICE!  I threw some of my essentials in an overnight bag,  got dolled up for my fancypants adventure, and blew goodbye kisses to the furbabies…

I was dressed to the nines!

Thanks to a couple of fabulous freebies, I was dressed to the nines.  I had found the Tracy Strapless Dress, designed by Gizza at Mimi’s Choice priced at 0L in a gift box on the floor.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My Snazzy Gems

This Glittz Zania Jewelry Set that includes the necklace and earrings on my avatar comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the gems, pearls and metal.  It is available as a free group gift at Tres Chic with a free group join.

Upon Arrival…

/me takes off her hat and looks around…  Am I in the right place?  I checked my phone to double check the address…  It would appear the lush green gardens are growing out of those old rusted out cars behind me and the pool as a family of ducks living in it -.-.  I have been tricked by the magic of the interwebs…  once again!  I guess it’s true what they say in regards to hotels …  You get what you pay for.  I suppose I’ll have to make the best of it!

An Evening Stroll

GIZZA February Group Gift

A night on the town…

“Enough work!” she said as I was typing away on another post. “Tonight I am taking you out!” She pointed to the outfit she had picked out for me to wear. As I “suited up” I noticed we matched. Now I understand why she picked out my clothes. She had been shopping today at GizzA and brought home the latest FREE  group gifts for both men and women. The matching Group Gift Feb’2017 are gray and black outfits. The one piece men’s outfit has an attached scarf. The women’s outfit has a matching belt with the GizzA logo. The GizzA group is FREE to join and there are many previous gifts still available!

A walk to the restaurant…

The restaurant is close by, so we decide to walk. It’s a nice evening and the stars are out. Our walking pose is called White Christmas by GlamRus. It can be found on the marketplace for just $1L. That leaves up plenty of lindens for our evening meal.  So, out to dinner we go, and maybe some dancing afterwards… After all, it is my birthday…

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.

I’m walking on sunshine!

Happy Saturday everyone! How was your week? Mine was mostly kinda gloomy. So what better way to fix a gloomy RL, than finding a nice sunny spot in SL! Naturally, my search for sunshine, called for me to be dressed sunshine appropriately. And lucky for me, some Womenstuff hunt gifts and a group gift, were exactly what I needed.

sunshine1

Starting with this gorgeous dress I have on! My floral halter dress is from BlackRose, and is a Womenstuff hunt gift. This colorful and super sexy number is mesh, and comes in fitted mesh in the standard sizes, as well as a SLink and Maitreya fitted versions. All you need to do is find that red t-shirt and this baby is yours for free. The hint is : “I m not an antique! I m an antik..” . Oh, and when I said sexy, I meant really sexy…I had to include a shot of the back so you all could really get the full effect 🙂

**Edited to add – The hunt hint I had used has been changed, the new hint is : “I’m tired of carrying all this stuff!” Good Luck!!**

Can you guess what I needed next? Shoes of course! In my hunting travels, I stopped over at G&D The Italian Style to search for their Womenstuff gift, and lo and behold, they had  these brilliant yellow and gold high heels, with versions for  SLink high, TMP and Maitreya feet, as a free group gift. Even better, their group was free to join. This is why I love hunts, it introduces me to stores I am not always familiar with, but sure am happy to have discovered. BTW, the Womenstuff hunt gift they have, super cute, slightly chunky heels. Believe me, I am working on finding an outfit to put together to show them off to you.

I'm walking on sunshine!

My last stop, WoW Skins, gave me that added extra sunshiney touch, in my glowing, bronzed skin. Rumya is their free contribution to the Womenstuff hunt, and as with all their skins, is simply beautiful. You will get a cleavage, and non-cleavage version when you find the t-shirt. Body appliers are available for a reasonable fee in store, or if you are in the WoW Skins group, there are all tones of body appliers included in the current group gift. This is a 2016 version skin, so only the newest appliers will match. The hint for this gift is : “Near the crocodile, the gift is waiting this time to meet you!” .

The Womenstuff hunt runs all month, so you have loads of time, and in case you are interested in seeing the full list, with hints, and store URL’s, here’s the blog link, Womenstuff Hunt Info.

Alrighty my friends. I need to go find a nice lounge chair, and see if I can rustle up a few girly, fruity drinks, with little umbrellas in them. I may as well go full-out in my sunshine dream, right? I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you all again soon. Until next time, TTFN!

Cosmopolitan Sales Room for Guys

Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend! While Tiana is taking a break, I thought I would pop up and show you a few great male items that are available right now for free or at amazing discounted prices.

There are some really great freebies and discounts out there for guys if you know where to look. The Cosmopolitan Sales Room is a really great place to start. They have been having new freebies for guys as group gifts almost every round so be sure to keep a landmark in your inventory. This round there is a really great freebie for guys in the Larson Sweatshirt by G&D. You can get this by joining The Cosmopolitan Sales Room group for free and then clicking the poster above the door of the main room.

There are some other really great finds for guys at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room so while you are there be sure to look around. I chose a few other things to show you here. Below I am showing you the Jared Sweater by Etham which is available for L$70.

This shirt is a really great investment as it comes with a HUD that will change the texture and there are 10 to choose from!

If you are looking for some inexpensive but quality mesh jeans in a range of colours then be sure to look at the Olen store on the Marketplace. I am wearing the Dust colour in their Essences Jeans range and these are all L$10 per pair.

Finally the hair I am wearing is the Sehun Hair by Xin and is a free group gift! It comes in several colours and comes complete with the matching hairbases which is awesome.

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Teacher’s Pet

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged on Tailor Made in SL, [HERE]

Listen up, all you guys who need to impress your teacher by the end of the semester so you can graduate.  If you want to show you are a serious student, just get yourself over to the Adjunct store pronto where there is a clearance sale going on up on the second floor.

Image

There are some real finds up there and each one is only $10L. My dress shirt can be bought in any of several colors and includes both tucked and untucked versions of the long-sleeved or rolled-up sleeve styles. Both styles come in open collar or buttoned collar looks. Take it from someone who should know, teachers just love that neat, tidy, tucked-in shirt look. The bow tie is one I had in my inventory from an earlier hunt and is not sold with the shirt. I’ve paired the shirt with Adjunct’s suspender pants, also only $10L. For that low price you get both the long version with tidy prim cuffs and short ones with rolled up prim legs. If you want to use your suspenders to hold up your pants there is a choice of six jacket-layer color schemes including the orange and green style I’m wearing. If you’d rather let the suspenders hang down, just wear the prim version instead, which comes with a resizer and a texture change menu.

That gets me to the all-important personal style choices one needs to make to reinforce the serious student look. First you will need thick glasses with black frames, and this pair is available from Fleebish! on the Marketplace for just $20L. Hair should be short and well-groomed, preferably slicked down in a 1950′s style like this Frank hair which is the Breakfast at Tiffany’s hunt gift from A&A Hair. If you choose to wear a hat, it should be the kind worn by French intellectuals, namely a beret. This one is $10L from Adjunct’s clearance sale, and has a color-change script in it so that you can color coordinate with your suspenders. Now finally, facial hair is optional, but if you wear it, it should be neatly groomed like this Dali mustache, also just $10L at the Adjunct sale. Adjunct has several mustache styles on sale and all of them – get this – have a wiggling animation which you can turn on and off. What a deal!

Voila! There you have it – the perfect nerd – oops! — I mean, serious student look. And don’t forget an apple for the teacher.
