Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming

Four more days. Winter will come for us in four…more…days. The days of Ice and Fire are almost here.

Can you tell, I am soooo excited to see the return of one of my favorite shows: Game of Thrones. I have so many questions. Will Jon discover his birth-right? Will Cersei die? Will Brienne fall into Tormund’s eager arms? I can hardly wait for the 14th!  At least I can play out my GoT dreams on the Grid while I’m waiting. And I get to do it with a giant new friend! All thanks to the Ice and Fire Event going on until April 13th. I made the rounds and played a ton of gachas but this outfit and my companion Dire wolf are my favorites.

The Garb

My blouse, corset and skirt are from the Luas “Ondina” 50L perplay gacha.  The blouse and skirt each come in five colors while the corset comes in either black or brown leather. There is also a fur stole to win that I didn’t get. The RARE is a gorgeous full dress or a set of accessories.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Exclusive

The Jewels

My gorgeous necklace is ‘Melisandra’ from !dM. There are nine colors of stones to win and each one allows you to customize the fit and the colors of the metals and settings. Plus, there are three styles of necklace to win.

The Wolf

Once again, Jinx has just really wowed me! The “Dire Wolves” gacha is just amazing! There are fifteen common ‘static’ poses and three RAREcompanions for your 75L perplay. I say “Static” because these wolves are Animesh. So the statics breathe and blink. Some even wag their tails. Of course, you do need an animesh enabled viewer to see the movements but it is well worth the update. My companions movements are smooth and so very realistic.

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! Fergus and I went for a lovely ride on the beach at the Cape Florida Lighthouse this afternoon.

We also picked up a few more goodies from The Beached Bunny Hunt 8 (TBBH8), and Fergus even found a freebie for himself along the way (not in the hunt, just to be clear)!

Wild Horses Couldn’t Keep Me Away (From This Hunt)

Our first stop was Sevyn East, where we found the Kendra top as their gift for TBBH8. It includes a HUD with 10 colorful summer textures, and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS–L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

BTW, I noticed that their gift from last year’s TBBH7 is still out, so make sure you grab the gift for this year’s hunt. I did that by accident and had to go back to find the right one!

Next, we headed over to Me’LanGe and picked up their gift for TBBH8, which is these Apple-Bottom Dazie Dukes shorts. And ladies, they are most definitely short!

The shorts come as an Omega applier and must be applied in 2 sections, top and bottom. If you are a Maitreya Lara body wearer, don’t forget to add your Omega Relay HUD before trying to apply the shorts (yep, I forgot to do that at first – DOH!).

Just a reminder: all gifts in TBBH8 are 1L each. The hunt runs through July 31st.

And Something for the Horses

As I mentioned, Fergus even found a freebie for himself.  🙂

The Painted Pony has a set out the chestnut-brown Crispin coat applier as a free gift for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. No group-join is needed. It will work on the draft as well as the light horses.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena

Oh, What Fun It Is To Ride

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m back in the saddle bringing more awesome gifts for you and your equine buddy!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Brrr, it’s cold on the trail today, but I’m staying warm and cozy in this beautiful coat. The Kabira Coat is the December group gift from Sevyn East and comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Not only does the coat come in this Christmas-y green color, but with the magic of a texture-change HUD, it also comes in blue, black, and a pretty purply-pink.

Note: the gift I picked up had an attachment problem with the HUD, but hopefully, that is fixed now. If it’s not, just rez the HUD on the ground and make your selection that way. It still works. 🙂

Horsin’ Around

Fergus is back in his horse body today after spending a few days as a stag, and he’s chomping at the bit to share some of his free finds with you:

  • Fergus’s antlers – with holiday ribbons and lights – are a gift from Jinx at The Chapter Four. There is also similar set for “hooomans” in the box.
  • If you have already purchased the Norse Gods Tack Set for your WHRH, there’s a free gift waiting for you at the Jinx store. The Xmas Texture HUD will turn your tack a pretty red and gold with a white blanket. There are versions for heavies as well as WB/QH in the box.
  • The Snowy Hoof Applier is a free gift from CINNAMON. You’ll find this – and several more WHRH gifts – under the Christmas tree at the Water Horse Mall.

 

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Another gift from The Chapter Four is this hair from Blossom. The BMGH 02 Xmas Edition hair comes in 6 different colors and includes the Santa hat. It’s not labeled as unisex, but I think this hair could also be worn by fellas who like a longer look. One thing: there appears to be some sort of light built in, which you can see right under my hat where the hair parts. I could not figure out how to turn this off (no mod), but it’s really not a big deal.

My jewelry is a gift from Elle et Lui at The Chapter Four. The necklace and earrings are included. There is no resizer, but you can do a right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

Finally… my gloves are a gift from E-Clipse Designs. A texture-change HUD is included so you can change the color from black to brown or sand. The gloves are Bento-enabled, so you will need to remove your hands if you don’t want them showing through the gloves. Guys, there is also a version for you, which Carson showed off HERE.

Whew – that’s all for now. Happy trails to you! 😀

Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

You know the snow is piled high when you have to ride a deer to get around!

Truth be told, I’ve been having so much fun riding around on this sweet, obliging stag that I haven’t wanted to stop. Today, we explored the beautiful forests of IASWAS – Groenland Kangamiut. The sim is full of lovely mountain trails perfect for skiing or sledding… we even saw a few people riding bicycles!

Oh, and I’m keeping him. I named him Fergus. 🙂

What Fun it is to Ride

I’m staying warm on the trail in this cozy, festive coat, which is the latest gift from Rir Life Designs for members of the TeleportHub in-world group.

The White Knitted Coat comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The Red Fur Collar comes in one size and cannot be resized; however, you can move it around to reposition if needed.

Make Me Blush

The weather outside is frightful… and my cheeks are sporting a delightful blush thanks to a free gift I picked up at Izzie’s.

The Winter Blush Gift comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Slink, and Omega mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars.

No need to join a group. Just head over to the Izzie’s mainstore and click to buy for 0L.

P.S. There are a few more gifts under the tree so be sure you check them all out before you leave. 😀

The Wearing of the Green

St Paddy

Kiss me, I’m Irish…

As I was putting on my Kiss Me, I’m Irish shirt, she shot me a disapproving look and was asked a one word question… “REALLY?” … So, it was back to the closet to find another green shirt. I found the Celtic Shamrock Tee by 7Tees that I bought on the Marketplace for just $75L. It’s not my fault she’s busy and can’t join me at the pub. All work and no play, yada yada yada… I slipped into my Shamrock Shoes, the FREE March group gift from Prey. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and I was out the door.

Dance an Irish Jig…

To get me in the mood for all this Irish revelry, I slipped on my FREE Jiggery Blarney Hat I picked up at the Jinx booth when I visited the Vintage Gacha Fair. If you want to dance an Irish jig, this hat even plays a tune. I saunter up to the bar to order my first beer of the evening and notice that her trusty man servant Ribald is the bartender for the evening. Either it’s just a coincidence or she thinks I’m going to need a ride home after too many pints….

Gacha to chase away the Monday Blues

The mix of being in an experimental mood and seeing all the great Vintage Gacha Fair posts from Astrid and Love and Carson had me wondering if it was possible to brew up a look using mostly under 75L gacha prizes. Since the fair is going to be running until the 19th of this month, I figured that there would be enough time to go and take a poke around. If things didn’t go according to plan at least I would have had some amusement on a (yucky) Monday. As it turns out, though, my experiment yielded up some pretty positive results. Here are the details;

Casual historical dressing

I’ve been in some pretty fancy dresses this week and it was rather refreshing to step into a more casual (in comparison) period piece. Cut in the regency style, the Lizzy dress has pretty puffed sleeves, a flattering neckline, and an empire waist to enhance your silhouette. I personally liked the detailing on the hem of the skirt and it was nice to step out in a pretty gown without the frills of swishing silk skirts and lace. Lizzy is available at the Faida booth at the Vintage Gacha Fair for 50L per pull and you can choose from five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) before paying the gacha machine. The corresponding alpha layer for the Lizzy outfit is available for free at the booth so don’t forget to grab that too if you do try your luck at the machine. Commons range from a trio of pretty pastel shades; blue, lavender, and cream (shown) while I do believe that rares are black, white, and red.  Just a side note, however, there was no demo (that I could spot) at the booth and I had to do a bit of guesswork and go by the standard size that I always wore.

Little lamb

One thing on my SL New Year’s resolution list was to stop buying little animals and big ones too. This was promptly broken as soon as I walked by the Jinx booth and spotted their MacSheepy gacha. They’re so adorable aren’t they? Will you look at those big eyes…awww. -ahem- Before I descend into baby talk, these cute little sheep are available for 65L per pull. I’m showing the holdy version of Giro in the picture above but there are twelve commons (six huggies and six holdies ) to be won as well as three rares and one ultra rare companion MacRamstein. All version of the MacSheepy blink their pretty big eyes and companion MacSheepy will walk around with your avatar. Jinx has another booth at the Vintage Gacha Fair as well with adorable baby goats.

Accessories

No trip to the Vintage Gacha fair is complete without snagging those awesome free gifts that merchants have out at their booths from clothing to home and garden items to accessories, I found something in the many, many gift boxes to compliment today’s outfit. The Escapade necklace in gold comes from the Fallen Gods Inc booth and is a simple yet pretty trinket to flatter any outfit historical or modern. While the necklace doesn’t come with a resize script, you’ll still be able to stretch, rotate and move it around using the edit option. Permissions are also set to copy/mod so be sure to make backups. If you poke around the other booths belonging to Fallen Gods Inc you’ll find the silver version of the Escapade necklace as another free prize.

The Vintage Gacha Fair is running until the 19th of this month so hop on over to get your free gifts and see what kind of cool stuff you’ll be able to play for.

Evenings at the farm (closer)

Other gacha

Looks like the gacha bug has bitten me rather viciously as I can’t seem to stop play them even after I’ve left the fair. I picked up the Galadriel hairstyle from Fabia Hair’s instore gacha for 50L per pull (shown here in pack number 3). This flowing and romantic hairstyle is very reminiscent of the elf that shares its name. I especially like how wavey the mesh looks and was pretty pleased to discover that you’ll also be receiving the tiara accessory as well to go along with your new hair. Here’s a rundown of what’s in the prize package:

  • Two versions of the Galadriel hairstyle; one for larger chests
  • Four versions of the tiara with rigged and resize versions and shine/no shine versions
  • Color hud with six different shades to choose from for common sets (rare sets have three times that)
  • RGB hud to change up the accessory colors

A very happy birthday

If you’ve seen Pru’s Post you’d have seen that it’s 7 Deadly s{K}ins’s fourth birthday today and the store is celebrating with not only a free join exercise but a birthday market placed at the front of their store and extra mini-manias. At the market, you’ll find 4L skin boxes for both male and female and before you think they’re only for classic skins there are boxes of face appliers for the different mesh heads thrown into the mix as well. Also available are 1L gacha and an example of this is the Daisey skin shown above. Though she only comes in one tone (taupe) there are different versions of the makeups (version 5 shown) to be won from this gacha and with such a sweet face I couldn’t resist playing over and over. Common prizes come with only classic skin while rare prize packages include body appliers. It’s highly recommended that you take advantage of this free join exercise as there’s a 400L gift card up for grabs for group members and stay in the group as members get access to regular gifts as well as the midnight mania, mini mania’s and lucky chairs. The free group exercise and birthday market are open for a very limited time so don’t delay!

And that’s a wrap. I gotta get the new sheep and goat settled in with all the other animals. My place is turning into a zoo… -rubs temples- Have fun out there guys and good luck on the gachas!

Someday, My Prince Will Come…

Sleeping Beauty

But why wait around when you can ride a unicorn instead?

With so much crazy going on in RL, I’ve been enjoying a little fantasy escape in my SL. And *{Junbug}* has a new group gift out that suited my mood perfectly. 🙂

The Sleeping Beauty dress is available for Maitreya mesh bodies only, but I’m sure you could probably fit it to other mesh bodies if you tried. There is a notecard in the folder explaining that the dress is a “corseted style,” meaning that the waist is meant to look “unnaturally small.” But if you feel that the waist is too small for your liking, you can use your torso sliders to put a little weight on… which is what I did.

And what does every princess need?

A tiara, of course! And I was happy to find this one for free at Chop Zuey (no group required). A resizer is included, so just touch the tiara to make it larger or smaller. As with all Chop Zuey products, the details are impeccable; I love the heart-shaped diamonds on each side of the center diamond.

I’m off now to look for some rainbows. ❤

A Snowy White Sweater and a Black Friday Sale

Fantasy Deer

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have a quick, time-sensitive post for you today.  On a tip from reader Starr Devereaux (thank you so much, Starr!), Ripley and I journeyed over to Wasabi Pills to check out their Black Friday Sale.  When we arrived yesterday, I was overjoyed to notice that this Fifty Linden Fridays Belle mesh hair was still set out in front of the store for only 50L.  I scooped it up, did a little happy dance, then headed inside to purchase a few (OK, OK, more than a few) Basics Packs of hair, which are on sale for 70% off.  I had to reassure Ripley that I still have enough Linden dollars left over to keep him well supplied with Ripley Snacks, and then his tail set to wagging once more.  Unfortunately, the Fifty Linden Friday Hair is no longer available, but you can scoop up the basics pack for Belle, and have more shades than I do, for 70% off.  Wasabi Pill’s Black Friday Sale runs through November 28th.

Snowy Sweater

In my post [HERE], I shared that Mie Beck strives to offer quality mesh items for 50L in her Marketplace shop.  I went back to poke around for more bargains, and I discovered this lovely white knitted sweater dress, just perfect for the season.  With a wide, ribbed, folded-down neck, and decorative cable stitching, this dress is packed with textural detail.  It reminds me of the sweaters that my grandmother used to knit for me when I was a little girl.  In addition, it features long sleeves, and falls to about mid-thigh.  You could definitely wear leggings underneath to keep your legs toasty if you are going to be out on a cold winter’s day.   The sweater is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and is available in other colors in the Beck Marketplace store.

Happiness is Shopping for a Scarf

Siss Boom participates in Sixty Linden Weekend Sales Event, and when Rip and I traveled there to check out this week’s offerings, I noticed the wall filled with 24 group gifts.  I decided to pick up a few.  I had joined Siss Boom’s group quite some time ago, and although it costs 500L to join, the *24* generous group gifts such as this free Ragland scarf in PAISLEY (woot! woot!) really make the fee a worthwhile investment.  Love previously featured this scarf in her post [HERE].  I adored it then, and am still enthralled with its delicate silk texture.  The soft, muted tones of the shawl really complemented my dress.  I draped it around my neck, and was quite pleased with the effect.

After popping home to grab a few of those Ripley Snacks for the road, the pupster and I dashed through the snow over to Snuggles Forest and met Jinx, a friendly deer.  I have to admit, though, Ripley kept a careful eye on those antlers while I gave Jinx a pat.  It’s so good to have a protective pal to keep me safe!  Until next time, wonderful readers…. happy shopping!
