Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

Old Town_002

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

Messy, messy Cupid!

If it wasn’t enough that Cupid is losing arrows all over Crystal Springs.. now it’s hats! Lemania ought to think about evicting him.. except that, well, he is Cupid.li3

Shown is Sweet Sassy Stuff (#1 of 5).

Lemanis  needs people to help clean up after Cupid!  Check at her shop everyday to see which hat you will be looking for, and inside the hat is a whole outfit Cupid stole from their closets! (omg.. and he’s a thief to boot!)

~cough~

Anway.. the hunt runs from February 9th – 14th (5 HATS to find for 1L$ each)

LVS Christmas Countdown

If you’ve been busy, like a lot of us are at this time of year, Ravenlynn Templar has made it super easy for us by putting her Christmas gifts to us where they’re easy to find: under the LVS Christmas tree of course!

You’ll find several cool items, each for 1L$ — a give-away considering the high quality of Ravenlynn’s work. I picked up a few holiday themed prezzies, it will be sad to have to pack these away till next Christmas after the holidays.

hmm.. Christmas in July party anyone?

lvs1I’m wearing the  Holly Jolly outfit in red (comes in several colours) and  the My Dead Kitty Christmas Combat boots. Hair and cute doe ears are from eat rice. Antlers (so not free) are from Illusions. Note: Illusions has some great dollarbie packs of masks and hats on the table in the shop.

The neko in me also had to have the Santa Claws Paws because.. omg, just look at those cute little candy cane nails.

Kalon – Puki – Angel`s – S.Y Design – Riddle – S&M Shop

Kyrinnia Desmoulins, designer and owner of KALON, was so kind to drop me her annual Halloween dollarbie. Thanks again, Kyrinnia!  “Kalon Halloween Neko” comes with skin, eyes, hair, tail, ears, pumpkin collar and shape (not shown).  Grab it while you can, and turn into a cool cat 🙂 You don´t like Neko? No problem, in this case you can wear only the skin … it´s the perfect skin to match all Halloween outfits. Have you noticed the lovely little spider on the cheekbone? 🙂

At Dreamdesign by Puki you can hunt for 10 Halloween-Gifs (1 Linden/each pumpkin-gif). Easy to find! The pretty “Skulldress” is one of my finds, you get a thong, top and belted skirt.

S.Y. Design Fashion has a lovely “Halloween Dress” as an October gift. It comes with glitch pants, top, skirt and matching stilettos. Just click the sign next the entrance.

Angel`s Designs offers a cute freebie named “Hayden Free Gift”, it comes with pants, bra, shirt and stockings. You will find it in-store on a sign along with 2 other nice freebies.  Also if you join the update group you will receive a gift. Ooh, and there´s a pumpkin hunt going on!

At Riddle you can find 3 boxes sitting on the table. One box contains Neko eyes (not shown) and  a brown“Vintage Shirt”.  Inside the other  box I´ve found nice “Logo Briefs” (shown in grey, come in pink too), and the last box was filled with cute “Halloween Sculptied Legwarmers”.

The pretty “Cat`s Shirt” (comes in black, grey, white) and “Hat&Hair” with cute paw prints (blonde, grey, orange – 3 sizes) you can get for free at S & M sachi and mima shop.  These freebies are designs by Izumi Homewood, owner of IZUMIYA. Go upstairs, there are tons of free items, also Neko stuff.
