Be My Valentine

Snapshot_002Happy Valentine’s Day to all you SLovers out there!  Whether you are spending it romancing the night away with a sloved one or curling up on the sofa with your favourite furrball, I hope it’s a great day for you.

Tonight’s The Night

If you can convince your honey to dress up all “matchy matchy” with you for the big date night tonight, make sure you check out the past notices of the Loca Como tu Madre group for a very generous free group gift for both men and ladies!  It may take a little convincing, some dragon eyes…  and possibly negotiations, but when a woman puts her mind to something, we all know there is no stopping her!

The Loca Como tu Madre shop is marketplace based, so I can’t teleport you to a store, but you can join the group by copy and pasting the following link into local chat to join and then review the past notices of the group for the gift.  secondlife:///app/group/9ad09367-24c5-391a-90d2-3eabc100c420/about

For Her

  • Be My Valentine Dress
  • Be My Valentine Slink Shoes (not shown as I am wearing my Maitreya feet)

For Him

  • Be My Valentine Suit
  • Be My Valentine Shoes

Be My Valentine

Question Of The Day

The adorable pose that I have pretty much forced upon poor Carson is called Be My Valentine and is available for just 1L in the GlamRUs Marketplace store.  It was a real steal and I think would be great for commemorating this special day with your sweetie in a snapshot or for blogging/photography purposes.

The Final Verdict

Will I be his Valentine?  How could I not after he’s jumped through all of these hoops for me?  I should be so lucky!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE ❤

Spring Steampunk

Spring Steampunk (full)

If the sky that we look upon well should tumble and fall

Taking pictures in one’s backyard has its perks but recently it’s been more of a hazard lately than anything else. After being nudged out of the treehouse for the umpteenth time by Commander (a polar bear that loves being up in trees; who would have thought) I decided to take my chances out on the grid. Thanks to a grumpy laptop, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to snap some shots on the many beautiful sims that Second Life has to offer but it seemed to be in a good mood today and lucky thing because the items I have to show you today deserve a marvelous backdrop.

Let’s start off with the newly updated Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoH! (thank you, Dalriada Delwood!). No matter how full my virtual closet gets (it’s pretty stuffed let me tell you), I always make room for clothing from MOoH! With their signature eye-catching designs and gorgeous texturing, it’s always a challenge to stop squeeing loudly whenever I see a new offer from this store. You can bet it’s what I did when I first laid eyes on the Janis dress but I really don’t think I can be blamed. After months of thick sweaters, this sleeveless, belted number was exactly what I needed in my life. Not only is the cut of this dress perfect for future Spring frolics, it’s deep lavender color is reminiscent of a field of flowers sharing the same name. Add that to the flowery lace overlay and well, Love hit the nail right on the head that this is a dress that can make you all excited for Spring!

The Janis dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Five Standard Mesh (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh  (XS-XL)
  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Included in the gift package is an alpha layer as well and with so many sizes to choose from I think there’s a good chance that you’ll find a fit for your avatar. As with all Fabulously Free in SL group gifts, the Janis dress is free of charge. You’ll only need to have your group tag activated and you won’t even have to pay a single L to join the group. While you’re at the store, do consider joining the MOoH! group as there are monthly group gifts and a monthly gift card for group members. The join fee for the MOoH! store group stands at a 100L but with all the goodies that you get, it’s a bargain.

Steampunk Spring

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

With February being the mushy month that it is, I decided to take a small break from all of that and visit The Broken Heart Fair. There’s a wide variety of goodies to be had at the fair, from decor to accessories to clothing and of course shoes. Most of the stalls had 30L or 35L items out as well as items going for 50% off and I had the good luck of grabbing this pair of Steampunk boots from Luas for only 35L. There’s no resisting a good pair of boots and I simply adore the chained gears detailing and those spikes that will no doubt add a subtle edge to any outfit. These Steampunk boots come with an alpha layer to help with the fit if you’re still on a classic avatar.

I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear

While you’re at The Broken Heart Fair, don’t forget to pick up the gifts that are available at the stores (just look for the heart-shaped box). You don’t need to have a group tag to get them and opening up boxes of free gifts after an outing is a fine way to pass the time yes? The bag in the picture is one such gift that you can get at the fair just by stopping by the Poet’s Heart stall. While it’s a long way to Halloween, I couldn’t resist bringing this cute, well-detailed bat bag with me on my adventures. There are two different variations of this bag in the prize package, one with a hold animation and one without.

The Broken Heart Fair is running until the 15th so hurry down and grab your gifts or do a little bit of shopping before it ends.

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And that’s a wrap. Have fun on Valentine’s Day guys! If you’re wondering about the song, well, train tracks.

Candy Girl

Candy Girl

Sugar, ah honey honey

Once upon a time, I had a whole list of ideas (because I’m a dork like that) for themed posts that I could do leading up to Saint Valentine’s Day. Since things have sure taken a sharp swerve into busy between then and the present, I figured I’d just have enough time to at least honor my most favorite aspect of February the Fourteenth. Forget about flowers or jewelry or even -shudder- dates, this Valentine’s (like every other before it) will be all about that sweet, sweet sugar rush. In lieu of simply wearing a sign that declared to all the (virtual) world my love for cookies, cakes, chocolates, and candy, I looked towards the Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift Listing for some inspiration and free gifts. Needless to say, there was one that stood out in the form of La Boheme’s updated group gift. My picture doesn’t really do it any justice but the delicate heart and vines motif that is drawn on each nail is very reminiscent of the icing on the prettiest confectionaries. The gift package includes:

  • LB Crush Gold Manicure and Pedicure Set for Slink and Omega hands
  • LB Crush Silver Manicure and Pedicure Set for Slink and Omega hands
  • LB Crush Gold Manicure set for Maitreya hands
  • LB Crush Silver Manicure set for Maitreya hands

Manicure and Pedicure sets for Slink and Omega hands are done separately, so if you’ve been wanting that subtle difference between fingernails and toenails, this is it. For a closer look at the mani and pedi sets, have a look at Love’s post {HERE}

You are my candy girl

Fully aware that it’s a rare thing indeed to find a hat that speaks both to my love for odd headgear and my sweet tooth, there was no way that I’d pass on this Valentine’s Day freebie by June Trenkins. The vibrant pink of the Bubblegum hat is made even more eye-catching due to the riot of prismatic bubblegum balls that decorate it. While snapping this picture, I was so very tempted to reach up and snap off one of them to pop into my mouth. While the Bubblegum hat is not resizable, you can still move it up and down or side to side along your point of attachment for a better fit. Permissions are set to copy so that you’ll be able to make as many backup copies as you like.  I’m not sure how long this freebie will be up for so if you fancy it, best hurry and grab it for your hat collection.

And you got me wanting you

February has really become a month for reds and pinks, hasn’t it? Not that I’m complaining as it’s really interesting to see the use of different shades in the many gifts and freebies found on the grid this month. Personally, I wouldn’t have considered pink footwear (unless they were sneakers of the hot pink variety) but the latest group gift from Essenz has really changed my mind. Not only do the bows on the Paris heels make a sweet twist to the open toe style, they also come in a choice of three perfect shades of pink (shown here in Bubblegum). The easy to use Hud also lets you customize the metals of the shoe so you can personalize it your heart’s content. The Paris heels come in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink feet with a shoe base to help with the fit. The Essenz group has a 350L join fee but the Creator is very generous and their group gifts never disappoint.

 

Candy Girl Headshot

And you got me wanting you.

One of the first things I did as soon as there was a lull in ‘busy-ness’ was visiting one of my favorite skin stores. The Midnight Mania boards at 7 Deadly s{K}ins change out fairly regularly and on my last foray, I managed to get the Renske system skin pack off one of the Midnight Mania boards. As always when it comes to prizes from 7 Deadly s{K}ins, the Renske prize package was very generous and contained:

  • 7 system skins with cleavage/no cleavage options in the tones: Apricot, Chestnut, Cotton Candy, Powder, Pineapple (shown), Sand and Taupe.
  • Omega body appliers with cleavage/no cleavage options for all tones stated above.
  • Slink Hands and Feet appliers for all tones stated above
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers.

Midnight Mania boards are open to group members and this month group members will also have access to the Valentine’s Day Advent that runs from the first to the fourteenth of February. If you’re only hearing about this now, don’t worry as past gifts, aside from two I believe, are still available to you until the fourteenth. Right now the group join fee is 1000L but there’s always waiting for it to dip again if you’re not already a member and the store does hold free join exercises quite often. I just love the impish, sultry look on Renske. 7 Deadly s{K}ins have never disappointed and they’re certainly a store to watch.

And that’s a wrap. If the song’s stuck in your head I truly apologize. At least it’s catchy right?

I Did A Bad Thing

BadThings

Day 7 – Stocking Up On Lingerie Challenge!

Sometimes in life we do bad things.  That cream cheese iced cinnamon bun we had for breakfast, that little bit faster we drove over the speed limit on the way home from work, or the extra glass of wine – or three you had at dinner…  The list goes on!  We weigh our decisions heavily in our minds… write it out and read it back, yet still decide there is no giving up the bad things we do.  Sometimes the bad things make us feel so good that we find other ways to balance it out and that’s just how it is.

If you are feeling like you might be in the mood for some bad things today, make sure to stop in at Bad Things and join their free inworld group.  After you have joined, you can obtain the Bria Belted Robe & Panties Set as shown in my photo as a free group gift.  It is a gorgeous shade of royal blue in a silky smooth texture.  The neat thing about this set is how the sleeves shrug over the hands.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Moooving on

Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

Snapshot_005
Hi again Fabulouses! I feel like I have been in my skivvies for days and needed to get dressed to do some running around inworld.  Apparently it is inappropriate and frowned upon to visit some sims in your undies <shrugs :P> , so I am sneaking in an extra post today to share with you news of a very pretty dress that you can pick up as a free group gift in case you feel like you need to put on some clothes for a while too!

Get Dressed, Literally

Inworld group members of the BlackRose group are spoiled rotten this month of February with the gorgeous Leather Strap Dress as shown on my avatar.  You can pick up this awesome free gift for yourself after joining their free group or activating your BlackRose tag and touching the gift vendor at the main entrance.

Available sizes:

  • XXS-L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya

To Tell You The Truth…

Snapshot_001Just calling you all up to say “GURRRLS!  You have got to check out this Alaska Metro Hunt at The Free Dove!” 

You Really Must

If you STILL haven’t checked out the amazing hunt being hosted by The Free Dove – prizes courtesy of Alaskametro even after my last post, I am hoping this one will send you there!  It will take you just a few minutes to wander around and pick up 10 light pink glittery balloon hearts with free prizes inside…  and who knows what else you’ll find.  There is always so much going on there.

In my photo above you’ll see me displaying:

  • #5 – Bette Applier Lingerie
  • #6 – Rouge Hearts Glitter Nail Polish
  • #8 – Black Silk Stay Up Stockings

The Bette Lingerie can be worn all together or panties alone as per the applier hud options and is compatible with the following bodies:

  • System
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Let Your Hair Down… Or Not!

Truth Hawks of Truth wants you to have the choice to let your hair down or not, and he wants you to  have that choice for free!  He has just sent out his new group gift for February and it includes full fatpacks of colours in the Char (up-do) and HoneyAna (side messy braid) as shown in my photos below.  I really like both of these so much, I probably would have purchased them, so I am really glad I had joined that VIP group!  If you are not currently in the group, it will set you back 300L, however based on previous gifts you won’t be feeling financially stung a bit!

TruthFebGGYou got it…  This was day six of the stocking up on free-ish lingerie challenge!
