Garden Party Madness

Garden Party Madness
I’m back in the mood for garden parties today.  The kind where everyone dresses up and there are small foods everywhere (you know, like tiny sandwiches, miniscule cakes….), and the heels of your shoes start sinking into the grass and you muse suddenly about the madness of it all.  I think humans are pretty good at doing maddening things, that when you break them down you realize just how odd they are, and yet entirely entertaining!

Dressed Up

My slinky little dress is the February group gift from Sass.  You’ll feel entirely sexy in this gift, with it’s soaring hemline and mostly nonexistant top.  I’m not complaining, it’s giving me everything I need today!  To get yours, join the Sass group for just 10L, and then pay the vendor 1L which will be returned to you promptly.  The January gift is there for you too, and you may want to try your hand at the lucky boards while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Party it Up

Ishiku have some awesome gifts out too right now – this heart shaped martini glass is just the right touch of madness and whimsy I live for at the moment.  You can hold it in either hand, so you can pose it out to your heart’s content.  Also, if you’re looking for an a-mah-zing garden feature (or indoors, if you have super high ceilings!) this fountain behind me is yet another free group gift at Ishiku while you’re there.  I’ve added a photo below to show you just how huge it is, and yet only 9 Land Impact.  Sweet right?  Join the Ishiku group for free and you can grab these!

Excuse me, do you have any grey poupon?

A Brief Respite

A Brief Respite

Valentine’s Day always falls in the dead of winter where I live, so the bright red and pink hearts that permeate the world at this time really perks up what is usually a cold, dreary month.  Instead of ruminating on the piles of snow outside, I choose to go and frolic among the spring meadows of SL, taking just enough time to smell the roses.

Slip Into It

The latest group gift from COCO has made its appearance, and it’s this slinky slip dress that is sexy in a kind of nonchalant way.  I can just imagine the silky material flowing gracefully over every curve of one’s body.  The best part is, it’s completely free when you join the free COCO group.  There are so many lovely gifts there, and new ones are always popping up, so a great group to stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Heel, Toe!

Mosquito’s Way have updated the group gift section again, much to my excitement.  They always have such well-crafted and pretty gifts for their members, that I always feel a little thrill of excitement when a new one pops up.  Join the group for 50L, and you’ll be able to pick up these pretty ombré heels come in three different colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Ahh, sunshine.  Forgot what that looked like!

Making it Shine

Making it Shine
Some of the things I love the most are sparkly – there’s something ever so wonderful about glitter and shine.  Other times, all I want is a bit of rugged with straps and buckles.  Today’s mood comes to you courtesy of not being able to make up my mind: Straps? Buckles? Purple? Shine? Ahhhh… why not have it all?

Uber Good

Grixdale have put out another free wearable demo of their latest release over at this month’s round of Uber.  The Calliope dress comes sized for Maitreya bodies and is in this lovely purple hue with the darker geometric triangles that give it a bit of a shiny texture.  No need to join a group here, just click on the free demo and it’s yours!  This round of Uber is running until January 22nd!

Sparkle, sparkle!

A Lot to be Getting on With

A Lot to be Getting on With

There are so many events and gift opportunities wrapping up right now, that I’m trying to let you all know about them before they disappear forever.  Here’s one more event that is soon coming to a close, but is well worth the visit: Cosmopolitan!

It’s Tradition!

The Christmas Season isn’t quite done yet (We’re on the 8th Day of Christmas today!), but you never know when gifts (or in this case a tree FULL of gifts) are going to disappear.  Over at Cosmopolitan, their tree still stands tall and is absolutely covered in really wonderful free gifts from quite generous designers.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE Dress from Safira sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Legacy & Legacy Perky in both black and flower print
  • FREE Hair from No.Match in natural hair tones
  • FREE Cupcake by ChicChica (with candle on or off options!)

The word on the street is that the Cosmopolitan tree will be gone on Epiphany (January 6th) so do head over there, join the free group and then click on the little stockings on the tree.

By the way, Pru showed you some of the other gifts you can pick up there too HERE

Ricielli and Dhoma hear you from afar, and they’ve got some really fantastic FREE group gifts for you!  Not only can you get this pretty dress at Ricielli for free by joining their free group, but you can also pick up two lingerie sets for free on the same sim.  Check out the other two store locations on the sim while you’re at it to grab them using the same group.  How awesome is that?

My Normal Baking Attire

My Normal Baking Attire

It is the perfect day to do some baking.  I don’t usually do baking in my undercrackers (I promise), but Second Life seems to have it’s own set of rules.  So if you want to whip up some cakes in a fabulous robe, nobody will even bat an eyelash.  I’ve progressed to the part where I lie appealingly on a chaise longue and eat the fruits of my labour, which is the best part really.  What’s the recipe for this salacious scene?  Read on!

What to Wear?

When ruffling through my insanely large collection of lingerie, I thought to myself, 5000 different sets are not enough!  I need something new (as one invariably does)!  I picked up this super lovely set of bra, panties, stockings and robe over at Maai and I really think you should too.  The group is free to join, and the lingerie fits just right.  It’s kinda nice and Christmassy too, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

And Then the Baking!

Baking in SL is so much easier than in RL.  This lovely bundt cake and the muffins right beside are the latest free group gift from Apple Fall (as if they haven’t spoiled us enough recently!).  The group is free to join, and you’ll find these delicious gifts in the front entrance.  There are other gifts you can pick up there too, just look on the shelf in the corner!

I will NOT get crumbs on this right?

Right!?

Forever Summer

Forever Summer

I know I was posting about snow just a few days ago, but let’s just go back to the fields of summer for a bit.  I’m really in the mood for some escapism, and escaping to a field of sunflowers while dreaming of the South of France is where my brain is right now.  I think I’ll find a nice pool to lie beside with the sound of cigales (those really loud cricket things) in the background, and a cold drink.  I’m shutting out the frigid air for just a bit longer, and I’m sure you’ll forgive me for it!  At least, I hope you will!

Sassy

I’m so glad that Sass is on the same page as me with their November group gift.  The dress I’ve got on is kind of a nod to Autumn with the leaves flying around, but the flowers and colours scream end of Summer to me.  You can slip into this dress too – just join the Sass group for 10L (pay the vendor 1L, which will then be returned to you).  Sass is more than generous with their gifts, as a new one comes out like clockwork every month.  Thanks Sass!

Pr!tty

I mentioned a little while back that Pr!tty had two new group gifts out over the fireplace in their shop.  I showed you one, but today I’m showing you the second.  It’s short, asymmetrical and lots of fun.  It also comes in a full fatpack of colours so  you can be as adventurous or staid as you like.  To get this pretty hairstyle, just join the Pr!tty group for free!

Summer foreverrrrrrr!

Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy

I’m sure the world all needs a bit of colour and happiness today.  Let’s just plug our ears for a minute and indulge in a bit of cotton candy fantasy.

Happy Anniversary!

Belle Époque are celebrating their anniversary in true SL fashion with a gorgeous new group gift!  The Amanda gown comes with so many lovely textures that I had a really hard time choosing which one to show you.  They range from the madcap animal print all the way to a delicate floral.  You have to see it!  You can grab this gift (and all the others) by joining the Belle Époque group for just 10L!

Dancing With Myself

Dancing With Myself

I feel like dancing today.  I don’t really need anyone else around to accomplish my mission, I’m just going to dance by myself for my own pleasure.  Sometimes that’s the best therapy, I think.  Loud music, lots of space to move, and little old moi!

Lybra Season

The other day, LYBRA joined the FabFree Designer 2.0 program and gave us all some amazing goodies which Pru showed you HERE.  I had to have the blouse as well, and while I was there I dug around in all the other awesome gifts that LYBRA has on offer.  This gorgeous dress is free for members of the Mesh Body Friends group, which is free to join.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and I love the shiny effect!  Head on over there and pick it up!

Now close your eyes, I have to keep dancing!

She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in Beauty

As Pru so astutely pointed out earlier today, it is indeed September.  One of the best months of the year, in my books.  It always has that shiver of new beginnings and the hint of crispness about its edges.  I made my way over to Luane’s World, only to discover that they’ve switched over to Autumn landscaping!  It really is quite pretty, do check it out!

Beauty, You Say?

The Beauty Sales Event has started, and you’ll be pleased to hear that there are a bunch of free event gifts there!  I counted at least 6 cool clothes and accessories you can grab when you join their free group.  I’m wearing the Chara Roses dress by LSR, as well as the super cool Scorpion bag by My Bags.  This event is running until September 23rd, so you have a bit of time to grab the goodies!  I wouldn’t delay though, they just far too cute to pass up!

  • Hourglass
