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

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!

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!

Village Life

Village Life

There’s a small town in southern England called Bibury.  It’s nestled pretty decidedly in the Cotswolds, and is generally the type of place that I’d love to spend the rest of my life in.  It’s small, quaint, covered in flowers, and even has a pub.  Last summer, it was on my to-do list of places to visit.  I went, giddy to see the little row of famous cottages, and ready to bask in the glory of the English countryside.  Sadly, a tour bus was trying to make a three point turn on a one way street made for a single horse cart, and the parking spots were all taken.  I couldn’t enjoy my little idyll, and I mostly got a drive through with my camera out the window, hoping to catch a photo or two of that lovely little town.  I’ll get back there, one day, but for now I’m going to bask in the gardens of Second Life.

Hunt it Out

Alaskametro are hosting a hunt right now that is the thing dreams are made of.  There are sweet, flowered dresses, lipsticks, eyeshadows, nail polish collections and even skins.  You won’t want to miss out on this awesome hunt!  You can take part in two different ways:  you can join the group for 50L and then seek out the hidden flowers in and around the shop for free, OR you can buy each flower for 20L if you want to save your group slots.  I’m wearing the Garden Party dress (there are three different shades of the dress to hunt for), the Hybrid lipstick and Hybrid eyeshadow (they come with BOM layers and Omega applier) as well as the Vintage China nail appliers that come with Maitreya and Omega options.  There are lots of other options on the hunt too for different heads so take a peek at the hunt vendor poster below!

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Beach season has perched itself firmly in my spirit.  I live not far from a beach in RL, but it’s not the kind of beach that we all dream of – soft sand, crashing waves, and warm waters.  It’s more of a thin ribbon of sand leading you to icy cold depths.  I’m not complaining one bit – it’s a beautiful lake – but I always wished for something traditionally beachy.  I get my traditional beach-bound moments in SL, I guess!

Choices

Seniha have been spoiling group members recently!  Pru showed you a recent group gift HERE which is still available, and now they’re getting us ready for the beach with their newest group gift!  The Ariana bikini comes with lots and lots of texture options in the HUD, which allows you to switch the top and bottom separately for your own look.  There are nautical stripes, tropical flowers, and even solids.  Your mixing and matching will never get tiring!  To get this lovely gift, just join the Seniha group for free, and click on the vendor near the entrance.

An Exploration of Nature

An Exploration of Nature

When I was little, my parents often took me to parks and conservation centres to explore.  I loved walking on little hidden paths through the woods where you could imagine that there were no people about, and that you were the first to discover this place.   I loved the quiet peace of these parks, and trying to block out the noise of the city (even though it’s a bit quieter than usual right now!) is something I’m working on in my mind today.  Where’s your peaceful spot in SL?

Still Staying at Home

I know the days seem to be going on and on, but I hope you’re all out there staying strong and staying safe.  Happily, The Stay at Home Club continues to drop awesome gifts on us every single day!  How cool is that?  I’m showing off two items today that were recently added, and they’ve got me feeling spring-like and cheerful.  Here’s what I’ve got going on:

  • FREE top and skirt from Ghee sized for Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE pose by OMY with 3 different poses in the box

No group join required for these cool gifts, and don’t forget to check out the Stay at Home Club’s website for all their newest additions!

Ah, the joys of Spring…

Remember Oubliette!

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette (and Petite Mort too)!  I got this lovely boho dress there, the tie-dyed awesomeness really calling to me from afar.  There are lots of pretty things on the boards that I’m sure will catch your eye, and all you have to do to get them is join the Oubliette/Petite Mort group for free, and wait for your letter to come up.

Lavendula Angustifolia

Lavendula Angustifolia

There’s nothing I love more than Lavender.  It’s been an important part of my life for years and years.  I love the way it looks, the way it smells, and all the memories it brings back of trips I took to the South of France.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before here, but I’m the kind of person who has a little sachet of the stuff under my pillow to ensure sweet dreams.  I get to decorate my home in it in SL, and that brings me just a little spark of joy!

Wash it Up!

The Wash Event continues, and really the more you explore the more you find!  I couldn’t resist these gorgeous decor items by Kaerri.  The elegant chairs are the things that dreams are made of for me, and the fact that each decor item cost only 25L is a deal and a half.  I got the chairs, curtains, mirror, and planters there and I couldn’t be happier!  There are a bunch of other items too, including a table and lots of little plants.  I can just imagine the scent!

Clothed in Comfort

While I was at The Wash, I also picked up this sweet outfit by Shae’s.  The top and jeans cost just 25L each, and they are a perfect fit.  I love the way it all looks on – the perfect mix of comfort and sexy.  There are a bunch of different colours to choose from, as well as different jean washes to satisfy all your denim cravings.  You can even pick up the matching shoes to the set for just 50L at their display.

Spring in your Skivvies!

Spring in your Skivvies

My darling readers, did you know that it actually got to double digits today?  Yes, the sun decided to appear and things felt decidedly springlike, which in my world means “pull out the bikini”.  Or even, “cavort in your underclothes in a field”.  It’s SL, I do what I want!

The Call of the Wild

Spring madness is probably upon me right now, since I am clearly under dressed for the outside world, but I care not!  I got this pretty lingerie (or perhaps is it a bikini?) set over at Tachinni.  Their group is 15L to join at this time, so it’s a deal and a half!  Head on over there and pick it up!  Then come hang out in a random field too!  Doesn’t that sound like a plan?
