Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

Christmas Eve Will Find Me

Christmas Eve Hello Fab Free! I don’t know about you but all this holiday stuff has put me in the mood for some fun holiday parties. I want to get dressed up, and go out with friends to celebrate the season. Half the fun of holiday parties is finding something great to wear!  I know it’s a little early, but I like to be prepared, otherwise I spend way too long getting ready last minute. I’ve found the perfect dress for a dressy Christmas Eve Party. Christmas Eve will be here before we know it, and I’m ready! Now I just need a party invitation! hahaha

Christmas Eve Outfit

Party or no party I just love the soft rose-gold color to this beautiful dress. The dress is a current group gift at American Bazaar. This fully mesh completely FREE gift comes in several size options including fits for specific mesh bodies. That’s right, I said FREE. The American Bazaar group is FREE to join at this time and there’s a swanky looking gift out for the gents as well.

Feelin’ fine in my pretty new dress, I had to have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. You know how it is, nothing in my inventory could possibly work. 😛 I’m glad I decided on new shoes because I found these gorgeous heels on the Marketplace from a shop called Sheba. They are currently priced at 39 lindens, and they come with a great color change hud so you can match them to just about any outfit. Also, these great shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. The Marketplace listing does say that the 39 linden price is a “promo” price, so don’t hesitate to grab these fast!

Just like in real life, an elegant new hairstyle was in order the second I put the dress on. It just so happens that Blues Hair has this quirky up-do available at the current round of The Dressing Room for just 70  lindens. I love that it’s pretty enough to be worn with my party dress, but still unique enough to show some personality. At just 70 lindens per color pack, the style is a steal of a deal.

To help keep the cool December air at bay, I added this fun fur boa from Kaithleen’s to my ensemble. This great alternative or even addition to a coat is the Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Kaithleen’s. The POE hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll get this pretty accessory for just 1 linden, once you’ve found it! The boa includes a color change hud as well, making it a really versatile piece. *Update 12/19/15 – I made a big whoops and credited the boa to the wrong hunt. You will find this boa at Kaithleen’s and it is their Into The Woods Hunt gift, NOT the POE hunt gift. The gift is 2 lindens. I sincerely apologize for the mistake! Happy Hunting!! 

The finishing touch, jewelry! Last but never least, I found a gorgeous rhinestone necklace with a little bit of vintage flair at Krystal. I am a sucker for vintage jewelry, and rhinestones are among my favorites. This delicate necklace is just 50 lindens at the Krystal main location. I found it to the left inside the store, near some gachas. The necklace is in 2 sections, so don’t be alarmed, just wear both. Each part of the necklace can be sized and adjusted as needed.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Princess for a day

Princess for a dayI have 3 dresses fit for a Princess weather you like mesh or system layers I have something for every Princess today. So lets have a trip thru the castle on this lovely Saturday!

I started my morning wandering thru the castle in the divine Jewel periwinkle mesh dress that is a FREE subscriber gift at The Crystal Clothing Company. That is right this Princess didn’t even have to give up a group spot for this dress. Tho should you also like to join their FREE group you can pick up this dress in pink too. Every Princess has to have a tiara and I found a grand deal on mp for this dainty ^^Swallow^^ tiara, 1L 3 colors! It fits perfectly on top of this FREE gift from Amacci Hair. Alva is a lovely tight bun with a full color hud and it totally FREE no group to join.

Princess for a day

The garden looked so lovely I had to wander out there for a stroll in this delicate mesh dress that I found at JLZ fashion it is there prize for The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. I opted to hunt for the scroll which meant this dress only set me back 1L. You have the other option of buying it without hunting for 25L. It is a good deal either way. Btw I did kiss the frog and alas he didn’t turn into my Prince, maybe next time!

Princess for a day

Having changed for the 3rd time this Princess is ready to retire into the study in this beautiful system layer dress which is the FREE GG over at The White Armory (TWA) this week. But today is the last day so while staying poised rush over there right now! The group is FREE to join and there is a new GG every sunday so if you miss this dress grab the next one it will be equally pretty. This is a group worth staying in, here is another example why from Pru. The furniture is another prize from The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. You can pick up the whole set for 1L or 25L at Lilith’s Den.

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Ever After

A Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]  *Note from Love Trill – this post was done yesterday – The Hair Fair Items are no longer available, but I thought you might enjoy a re-visit from Serena with a fabulous 30L deal from Bite & Claw! 

b&c8_001f

What I miss about childhood is the absolute belief that I will one day marry a prince, become a princess, and live happily ever after. Sadly, real life and old age have proven that theory to be a bust, but at least I can still play dress up and pretend in SL. This gorgeous dress is from Bite&Claw, and if you hurry, you can pick it up on sale for only 30L! My pretty updo is a free gift from LaNoir Soleil at Hair Fair 2014… again, hurry because today is the last day. Oh, and another last minute event you can catch is Lazy Sunday, where you can pick up the sweet Paper Butterflies lamp from Plethora.

Also “fit for a princess” is this vanity table by [CIRCA] – complete with lots of accessories and animations! – available at the current round of, er… Fit For a Princess. Several colors from which to choose! While you’re there, you can also pick up the crown and necklace I’m wearing, and play the [freebird] gacha for a sparkly, royal manicure.

Have a “happily ever after” week!

Hey fabbies!

I have two different outfits for you today using hunt items, group gifts and luckyboard items!

First off, the floral skirt and pastel jacket are both luckyboard prizes from Sencha-an at the Kiyomizu mall. Both are mesh and HUD controlled so you can change the colour and design on each! Whilst you’re waiting for your letter to come up, have a look around the store for a little black cat called Ponta! He’s on the lose again and if you catch him you get the outfit seen on the left! The outfit comes with the dress and boots you see pictured, but it also has suspenders, stockings and mesh nails which aren’t shown in the image. There are 80 stores in the Kiyomizu Autumn hunt so be sure to have a look around all the shops and catch that pesky little kitty!

Whilst we’re on the topic of animals, Hello Rabbit now has an inworld store where you can pick up this adorable knee tattoo for just 1L$! It will only stay at that price for today though so be quick! If you miss out, don’t worry! It’s available on the marketplace for 25L$.

My snuggly scarf and sweater are both free group gifts from Kyoko couture! They’re not mesh and there are so many other group gifts on the shelf for you to pick up also including a fatpack of coloured socks and some bikinis!

And last but not least, my iron butterfly necklace on the left is 10L$ at The wash Cart sale by Krystal! Love also showed you this necklace in her pretty post here if you want to check it out!

Good Morning all you Fabulous people…

This week I wanted to get The White Armory Group Gift up on the blog EARLY… I got a few messages saying that they didn’t read my blog in time and I was sad that I had let you people down last week… *hangs head in shame*

but yeah.. This week *HERE I AM* baby!!! woot woot…

I snagged the dress and thought “Okay, this is dark and beautiful at the same time, how can I accessorize this?”  Well, with a Huge Thanks to Snow FrostWych (of ~*[By*Snow]*~, I found this amazing KMADD subscriber gift, which supplied me with the hair, eyes and eye lashes for my look.   Then, another one of my lifelines, Laura Auggers, hooked me up with this gorgeous skin by !BaaaH!.  The Earrings are by Luminesse, yet another one of those amazing designers @ The Wash Biannual Cart Sale…. The knee high mesh boots are also a product from the Cart Sale, They are being sold by Amour Fashions. I also ran over to GENRE event and found this necklace to match the look, It is by Krystal.  I bought the makeup from Corvus on the Marketplace and WHAM, BAM, ALLAKAZAM!!
