Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!

Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

It’s a Good Month.

Purple_001

It’s a good month…

April is a good month for men. You know why? We have the “For Him Hunt” just for us. I’ve already made a couple of stops and I have to say I’m pleased with the results of my findings. It’s like hunting down golden Easter eggs all April long… except the icon is a manly wrench. You can never have too many tools, I don’t care if you’re a guy or a gal.

I decided to show off this great shirt I picked up at Horr Menswear first, since the deep rich purple color and the fit are just superb. It’s a great casual shirt and goes great with a pair of jeans. It also comes in a large number of mesh body sizes to fit just about any of the mesh bodies out there. For just 1L this shirt is a steal of a deal. Hunt it down before April 21st when this hunt ends.

Shirt Mesh Sizes Available:

  • Classic XS – XL + Alpha
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Too Cool for School

Too Cool for School

High School was a while ago for me, I’ll admit, but I still love the idea of a slouchy outfit, a high ponytail and a backpack slung low.  It’s that feeling of promise and excitement that I’d like to capture today – that feeling of your life ahead of you, while still thinking you’ve already got it all figured out.  Plus, it’s just generally a cute look don’t you think?  Pack a lunch and read on so I can tell you all about it!

Hunt On

I jumped over to the Land of Rainbows, and had a grand old time hunting for eggs all around the beautiful sim.  This is a true egg hunt, wherein you just wander and try to find as many eggs as you can!  Much fun to be had, and the eggs are all free!  I picked up this fun slouchy sweatshirt with backpack attached by M&M Style in my searching, which comes with a texture change HUD that changes the colour of the sweatshirt (and adds some sayings to the front) as well as changing the colour of the backpack.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Don’t Stop!

The leggings are another awesome find on the Land of Rainbows hunt.  I found these pretty leggings (which also have a texture change HUD) hiding within an egg.  I think these will be super cute for lounging around, or for working out in style! And happily they’re free!  There are loads of lovely things to be had – you can also see what Kathryn and Stan found! The Land of Rainbows hunt runs until April 6th! Hop to it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

See you kiddos later!

!gO! Get your Easter Dress!

!gO! Spring

!gO! get your Easter Dress!

!gO! has out an Easter Dress as their newest group gift! I got the notice just today and couldn’t wait to go get the dress, especially when I saw the polka dots. Growing up, my favorite Easter Dress was a polka dot dress my mother made for me by hand, sewing it months in advance of the holiday with loving care. I wore that dress out even before I outgrew it, and this dress by !gO! brought back those fond memories.

To pick up the dress you’ll need to be a member of the !gO! group. It has a one-time join fee of 50L, but there are regular gifts to make it worth joining. And this pretty dress is worth the fee alone.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Lumae Catwa Lips

Ostara’s Alter

I also stopped by Ostara’s Alter. The event ends April 3rd, so if you want any of the 5L hunt items (there are eggs with gifts hidden around the sim) you’ll need to hurry. I picked up the 5L gift item from Lumae and discovered a lovely Catwa lips makeup set. I included a picture of the hud above so you can see the lip palette. You might remember that Aline blogged a cute dress from the event in her post [here].

Enjoy your weekend, Fabulous Readers!

A Bad Egg

A Bad Egg

Monday has arrived, but I’m well pleased that it’s a short week.  Easter is heading our way, bringing the promise of chocolate, jelly beans and that stringy multicoloured fake straw stuff that you’ll find under your couch six months from now, wondering how it possibly could have gotten there.  I found the perfect outfit for the Monday running up to a long weekend – a giant pastel-gothy sweatshirt with an evil looking bunny on it.  I dunno, it just seems a propos to me.

Sn@tch it up!

I post a lot about Sn@tch, I realise, but Ivey Deschanel just keeps churning awesome freebies out, and this one is no exception.  I was on the hunt trail again, this time for the “Dozen Good Eggs Hunt”.  Each participating store has six pastel-hued eggs strewn about their store, each containing an awesome prize.  I got the sweatshirt and skirt in one egg, and the glasses in another!  I have always felt an affinity with the pastel Goth style – it’s somewhere between the dark recesses of my heart and the part of me that likes skipping gleefully while eating large amounts of candy.   Anywhos, don’t forget to click on the hunt poster while in the store, so you can tp to other shops and pick up loads of fun free stuff!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Alpha Layers included

Read My Lips

One other fun and free little item I picked up on this hunt is the lipstick you see above.  I grabbed it in one of the eggs at The Little Bat.  There are loads of different colours to choose from in the applier, and they’re all very appealing.  This lipstick comes with appliers for Lelutka and Catwa, as well as an Omega applier.  Fun!

Now I’m going to go stomp all over this week, just like the evil bunny on my sweater would.

Mwahhaha
