Pretty Little Loves: Raindale & The Beauty Factory

The Beauty Factory & Raindale

Like our fabulous readers, I run out and check out all of Aline’s fabulous finds.  She posted about The Beauty Factory’s awesome 1000L credit here, and I had to run over.  Wow.  What a treat!!!  These are unique threads that are so pretty.  There are a hot pile of group gifts AND the 1000L bought a few very pretty outfits, too!!!  Did I mention the group is FREE???  It was really hard to pick JUST ONE outfit, so I went with the group gift, Megan.  She is so delightful!!!  She comes with both the gown and the panties.  She is both sexy AND classy, and I love that combination! You’ll want to hurry though, this deal ends TODAY!

I also ran over to one of my favorite stores, Raindale, to pick up their March group gifts.  How cute is this set up???  It comes with everything you see except my horse, Dante. The group join cost is 250L, but every month, they have a set of 4-5 themed gifts that you can place out as a group or use individually.

Beauty & Brillancia

Brillancia ~ Caroline

I love fun fashion.  New designs really get me excited, and Brillancia is a store full of really fresh designs that are totally affordable.  In addition to their line of clothing, they have one of THE MOST EPIC free group gifts walls on the grid which includes a 500L giftcard!  The group is FREE to join!  This will matter in a hot minute.

While I was in the store picking up all the FREE group goodies, I saw this amazing post-apocalyptic outfit offered up at the Tres Chic Event, so I moseyed on over, and, wow, I was not disappointed.  This outfit, which costs 250L for the top and bottom, comes in a wide range of colors with bling and non-bling versions.  This is one hot outfit to use that FREE 500L gift card on!!!  I will warn you, though, if you look around the store, you might find about 50 OTHER cool outfits, too.

Support Ukraine in Style!

Stand with Ukraine 1

Second Life is one of the most wonderful worlds in existence.  We can stand together and support our friends in the Ukraine while also loving our Russian friends who never asked their leaders to go to war.  I was so inspired by Cre’s post about supporting the Ukraine, that I quickly hopped onto Marketplace to see what else I could find.  Truly, there are hundreds of freebies out there to show our support for the Ukraine.  I can’t blog them all here, but do a quick search and you will have a closet full of items to show your support.  I found this beautiful FREE Eiko Dress Ukraine by E&E which comes with matching shoes.  I also found the FREE matching Ukraine lipstick by MAD, and a FREE 90s Necklace with a hud including two different peace signs by Melt.

Stand with Ukraine 2

The shoes come with the outfit and match perfectly!

If you wish to provide financial support, Two Moons Gardens is donating the proceeds of their Inspiration Garden (249L) to the International Red Cross for use in their care of refugees and victims of acts of war.  The garden, pictured above, is located on a special sim where there are freebies and 10L items to purchase to support the Red Cross’s efforts in addition to donation kiosks.  Two Moons will be hosting a Salsa event in the near future, so please check them out.

The Fabulous Farmer’s Market!

Amais - Kacey

My gentle readers…I’ve just returned from a week in Vegas.  It was for RL work, but STILL…Vegas!  I came back to SL to find all sorts of fun fabulous things including The Farmer’s Market!  To get these goodies, you go to each store and find the farm stand.  Everything is less than 80L.  This cute outfit named Kacey is by Amias.  This color cost 75L, but there are other colors at full price.  The necklace, adorably enough, is ALSO called Kacey (did they plan that?), and cost 65L at Michan.  There are several different metal choices, but each comes with a HUD for the gem.  The silver is pictured below.

Michan - Kacey

As I catch up with all the SL goodies out on the grid, I found the Farmer’s Market to be a lot of fun!!!

The Bearded Guy and the Secret Garden

Simple Gifts

Every good story should start with the line, “let me tell you about The Bearded Guy and a Secret Garden.”  Such is the case with today’s outfit.

I started my morning as I always do, reading the FabFree blog to see what my blogging sisters have been up to.  Well, it turns out that Sister Arielle had been over to the Secret Garden, and that reminded me that I, too, needed to get on over there to see what goodies can be launched from those precious machines.  You can read about her adventures with the Mooh machine here.

While I have to admit that I was not at all fond of the Gacha ban, I really don’t mind the “next up” (there are so many names now) machines.  For one, I thought at least 20 times, wow, I just saved a fat ton of Linden.  In the Gacha days, I would never buy hair or clothes at a machine because I am very specific about my hair color, and I don’t like wasting precious Linden on clothes and accessories I will never wear.  Imagine my delight when I landed at the Demicorn spot at the Secret Garden and the three machines were humming in tandem!  Each 50L a pull, I scored three dresses that I will wear (red, pink and white), 2 rare pink bears, a black bear, and 2 gift boxes.  It was a such a nice score without anything I wouldn’t actually want!

Once I finish reading the blogs, I check out all the sales for the day, and, since it’s Saturday, there are lots of things to occupy my virtual purse.  I headed over to The Bearded Guy for some sale props, and that was the first time I had been to his store.  HOLY TOLEDO!  The Group is 75L to join, but there is an ENTIRE WALL of group gifts AND a 1500L Gift Card for group members.  I bought this scene, Cute Palacio Backdrop, with the Gift Card.  The scenes range in prices but the 1500L Gift Card will buy one fatpack or several single scenes.  I did the latter because I have a “thing” for pink.

So now that shopping is over, I can go listen to Rasbury Rearwin play the guitar in a seriously cute outfit!!!

Mystical Beauty

Mythical Market Hunt
Hunts are really one of my favorite things to do in SL.  I also like events.  It’s awesome to see all the different creators come together and offer fresh new styles.  I love an event that is themed AND has a hunt, and I was not at all disappointed in the Mystical Market Love Potion Edition Event & Hunt.  The hunt items are 10L but no group is needed, but you can view them here in advance.  BUT, definitely go to each store because there are free gifts, too.

Most everything in the picture above was found in the hunt or as a freebie.  Let’s dig in!

The outfit by QE Designs is actually labeled as pajamas (Veronica pajamas – Dark Vintage Lace), but I would totally wear this to a club.  It comes with a 4-color HUD including black, berry, and blue (and the purple I am wearing).  Cost: 10L (Hunt)

The Outfit!

The Hottie Heels are made by Grumble and come in red.  They are really cute (and look very sharp – both literally and figuratively).  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Potion Necklace by Little Bat comes in two versions: Love or Hate.  I am a lover, so I went with Love for the picture.  You can click to resize it.

The Love Potion Paper Earrings are made by Byrne and are super cool.  First, they come in pink, purple, and red, but each color also comes with both a static and a glow version that blinks slowly!  I am wearing the glow version, but you really can’t see them blinking.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Earrings Glow!

The circular tapestry rug by QE Designs is really pretty, and this is one of three FREE gifts in the QE shoppe at the Mystical Market. Cost: FREE!!!

The red and black Gothica Pillows come with red wine glasses and are by Angelic Designs.  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The rose and thorns decor by Love is so pretty.  You can resize this and it works on the ground or on a mantlepiece.  Cost 10L (Hunt)

The backdrop is called Black Witch Moth Tapestry by Dragon Magick Wares.  It’s resizable which I loved!  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The Gothic Valentine’s Gift Boxes by Laminak come in 4 styles.  They have little skulls on them and the ribbon colors differ on each box.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The pose is from Something New called Just Take My Heart at the Cheeky 69 event.  It comes with both the pose and the little heart.  Cost 69L (Event).

It’s a Wrap!

It's a Wrap!
Well, it’s a wrap.  Valentine’s Day is over, and all of the pink things will turn to green as we head toward St. Patrick’s Day.  But, before we go…check out this SWEET new group gift from Dead Doll!  While the buy in cost for the group is L250, the gifts are always sensational.  Over the years, I’ve belonged to groups that had high price tags that weren’t worth it…but Dead Doll?  Oh yeah, it’s worth it!!!

This cute little towel set comes with both the towel and head wrap. The little clip is also customizable. The whole outfit is just so incredibly cute, and I had to share!  The Hot Tub was a prize from the MadPeas Hunt I blogged about here.

I also stripped my avatar down so you can see waht she looks like without any makeup in her default Lelutka Evo X & Maitreya base layer.  The shape is custom.

Love Day Beauty

Cuteness
It’s finally here!  Valentine’s Day!  What, you ask, does Desi wear on this festive day of love and sexiness?  Well, she wears what she always wears…cute stuff that she finds for FREE!!!

The Group Gifts at Brillancia are absolutely terrific and, ladies, you may not have gotten roses today, but you can join this group for FREE!!! The newest gift, the Anna dress, comes in all kinds of color HUD options.  You can switch up the skirt and top and the top and lower bands to find a style you like.  I paired the dress with the Group Gift heels named Arya (also free!).  These, too, are customizable…the leather, the laces, and the heel. I looked around the store, and I really like Brillancia‘s style.  Everything sort of looks the same around the grid as fashion trends hit all the stores at once, and Brillancia has some really sweet and unique outfits that are so pretty.  The designer, Eva Chekov, is also really nice.  I had a question, and she was super helpful.  I definitely shop at stores where the designers are nice!

The Boots!

So….whether you have a date or not for the big V-Day celebrations, you can still wander around the grid looking sensational.  There are a heap of free group gifts, and you will have so much fun trying everything on and working with the HUDS to create your custom happy look!

The Luck of the Draw!

Bring on the Night
Ladies, it’s Confessions with Desi.  I miss Gachas.  I loved me a good Gacha event back in the day (like last year).  But, the rules changed and now we have Next Up machines.  I will admit that I am kind of a fan of them, as I am wasting a lot less money on  stuff I don’t want, but I am not standing around for days hoping someone pulls the stuff I don’t like so I can get what I do.  It’s an odd joy when I show up to a machine and there are back to back prizes that I really like.  Such was the case at the Evil Bunny Productions “Up for Grabs” Next Up Event.  The event runs until February 28th.

I picked up the free gifts at some of the vendors and then looked over the machines.  There were some cute things I really wanted, but, alas, they weren’t the next up items…they weren’t even on the board yet…so I will have to wait for a Next Up Yardsale.  But, then….THEN…I got to the Fatal Fashion machine!  Waiting for my 50L pull was this adorable little dress and the next item was, luckily, the matching panties!

The Britches!

How lucky!!!  I quickly scored these two fine articles of virtual bliss for 50L each before someone else jumped in to steal my pull (I mean, that’s never actually ever happened anywhere, but there is a real fear).  I love this cute little outfit!!!
