Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service 🙂 The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area 🙂 As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

Crazy, Sexy, Cool….or Swirly, Edgy, Blue…either works for me.

swirlyblue1Happy, happy Thursday everyone! Oh boy, do I have some great stuff to show you today, I could hardly contain myself waiting for Thursday to roll around! So, no chit-chat, no nothing, I’m getting right into it 🙂

swirlyblue3

My super gorgeous dress was the start of my outfit. I was over at our very own FabFree HQ, taking a look at all the generous gifts put out there, and I spotted the More Than Ever dress from Blue Composure and Ruckus. I had to have it. I mean look at that blue!! It is mesh, with all the standard sizes. Best part, other than that lovely blue colour, the funky swirly pattern, or the little bit of hardness from the studs around the neckline – t’s free for everyone! Yayyy. We do try to rotate the gifts that are out, so just to be on the safe side, don’t take too long to run over and get it, as it could be gone before you know.

Next addition were my shoes. I knew I wanted something a little edgy, to kind of go along with those cute studs around the neckline of my dress, and as luck would have it, Essenz sent out a notice that very day I was looking, about a new group gift. The Lagos shoes, for SLink High, or Maitreya feet, are that perfect combination of sexy and edgy, and were perfect! They are free for group members, but the group is L$350 to join. Let me tell you though, it’s worth it, just for these shoes alone, and they are very generous with frequent gifts. I am so in love with the fringe around the ankles!!

The last thing to mention about my look, is my super cool hair. I’m sure you are all aware that it is Hair Fair time, and it’s their 10th anniversary to boot. Because of this, there are soo many gifts from the participating designers, it is a freebie lovers heaven. If you can get in of course, LOL. My fun ponitail is the gift that you get from enVogue. It comes in 2 brown ombre’s, with a pack of hairbases in every shade imaginable. It is rigged mesh, so no adjusting, but it fit me perfectly, especially once I added the hairbase. This gift is free for everyone, just look for the giant 10. Here is the direct slurl for enVogue @ Hair Fair, however, they have fixed landing points in place, so if you manage to get into the sim, follow the arrow.

OK, so this is not part of my outfit, but worth telling you about all the same. Elephante poses is celebrating their 3rd anniversary, and as a thank you to all the customers, there are some gifties to be had! This cute set of 3 poses that I am showing off is the subscribo gift, called Don’t Let Me Down. All you need to do is hit the subscribo board at the landing point, and they are all yours, for free! While I am not showing them off, there is also a new pose pack for group members, which is L$350 to join. For all you Harry Potter lovers, or just plain old magic lovers, there is a special edition purple wand that is a great pose prop. Oh, and if you needed a pose to use it, well, all pose packs, except for collab’s, gacha’s, and new releases are 50% off. This celebration only lasts until the 17th though, so if you like what I’m telling you, you better get your booties over there 🙂

Whew! I think I got it all! I had to double-check to make sure. So many goodies, so little time, am I right? LOL. Alright you lovely readers, it is time to leave you again, but don’t worry, I’ll be back the same time next week, with more great stuff to show off. Until then, TTFN!
