Up In the Club

Can someone please tell me, exactly what is the dress code here?  A night on the town with an eclectic outfit is exactly what I need this weekend!

A Garden Full of Gachas

I stopped by the Gacha Garden, and yet again they have spoiled us with an overflowing haul of gifts!  It was ever so hard to choose what to show you guys, but I settled on this sweet pink bustier by Luas, the very distinctive crown from Ersch and this AMAZING hair by Pr!tty.  And yes, they are all FREE!  I make no secrets about the fact that I adore hair by Pr!tty.  They are always so generous at the Gimme Gacha events, putting out full fatpacks of super cute hair!  I like the way it goes with the halo-like crown that is the free offering from Ersch.  Pair them both with this shiny bustier by Luas, and you’ve got a cool outfit that lets you stand out from the crowd!  The top fits my Maitreya body very well.  To pick up these gifts (and much, much more) join the Gimme Gacha group at the Gacha Garden for free, and pick up your goodies!

Fab Free Skirt!

The latest Fab Free group gift at Revelation is this really cool jean skirt that has very interesting lacing detail up the front.  I actually super adore it and don’t really want to take it off, quite frankly.  You can get yours too for free, of course, by activating your Fab Free group tag and clicking on the vendor.  Of course, the Fab Free group is always free to join!  Yay!

Cheers to a Fab (Free) weekend!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Time for a night on the town!  I’m feeling myself today, and I’m all about being the pampered princess.  That calls for big hair, high heels, and loads of pink.  I can just picture myself now, dancing to Cyndi Lauper, clinking glasses with my girls, and rebuffing any lame-o who makes advances.  Fries before guys, amirite? Uh…right. ANYWAY…

Girls Night

I’m working that late 80’s vibe tonight with the help of a whole bunch of gifts I picked up at the Midwinter Fair!  There are so many cool free gifts there, that putting together this outfit was a breeze!  My hot pink dress comes from the BouBouKi stall, and doesn’t it just make you happy? I paired it with this uber bright clutch by Luas Urban.  I really enjoy the bright colours, as well as the charms that are hanging on the little chain.  Cuteness!  No need to join a group, just pop round the stalls and click on whatever strikes your fancy.  Hurry though, the Midwinter Fair closes on January 17th!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Proud as a…

My last little outfit detail is a gift I picked up for free at the Gacha Guardians event.  This fun peacock hair comb just tops my hair perfectly! You can move it around to fit nicely with any hair do you may be rocking at the time.  Just join the free Gimme Gacha group when you land, and pick up your free gifties! Whee!

Wait…who’s that dishy guy over there? Maybe I will dance with someone after all…

She’s a Vision

Leopard Vision_001

“I’ll wait all night to meet her.
I’ll wait all night to see her smile.
I’ll wait all night to meet her.

She’s a vision, she’s a vision, she’s a vision…”

Visionary…

There’s a new group gift at Vision and you don’t want to miss out on this freebie. Just teleport to the Vision main-store and wear your store group tag to pick up the Tessa Jeans Skirt. It comes in a leopard print with a slightly purple sheen (so I paired it with an older lavender top that I had in my inventory) and the skirt is really gorgeous.

When you get to Vision, if you’re not already a group member, be aware that there are two store groups. One is free to join and that is the group that you need to get the group gift. The other is the VIP group and requires a fee. You can join the VIP group to get access to the lucky letter boards if you choose, but you don’t need the VIP group to get the group gift.

Skirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Spring Steampunk

Spring Steampunk (full)

If the sky that we look upon well should tumble and fall

Taking pictures in one’s backyard has its perks but recently it’s been more of a hazard lately than anything else. After being nudged out of the treehouse for the umpteenth time by Commander (a polar bear that loves being up in trees; who would have thought) I decided to take my chances out on the grid. Thanks to a grumpy laptop, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to snap some shots on the many beautiful sims that Second Life has to offer but it seemed to be in a good mood today and lucky thing because the items I have to show you today deserve a marvelous backdrop.

Let’s start off with the newly updated Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoH! (thank you, Dalriada Delwood!). No matter how full my virtual closet gets (it’s pretty stuffed let me tell you), I always make room for clothing from MOoH! With their signature eye-catching designs and gorgeous texturing, it’s always a challenge to stop squeeing loudly whenever I see a new offer from this store. You can bet it’s what I did when I first laid eyes on the Janis dress but I really don’t think I can be blamed. After months of thick sweaters, this sleeveless, belted number was exactly what I needed in my life. Not only is the cut of this dress perfect for future Spring frolics, it’s deep lavender color is reminiscent of a field of flowers sharing the same name. Add that to the flowery lace overlay and well, Love hit the nail right on the head that this is a dress that can make you all excited for Spring!

The Janis dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Five Standard Mesh (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh  (XS-XL)
  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Included in the gift package is an alpha layer as well and with so many sizes to choose from I think there’s a good chance that you’ll find a fit for your avatar. As with all Fabulously Free in SL group gifts, the Janis dress is free of charge. You’ll only need to have your group tag activated and you won’t even have to pay a single L to join the group. While you’re at the store, do consider joining the MOoH! group as there are monthly group gifts and a monthly gift card for group members. The join fee for the MOoH! store group stands at a 100L but with all the goodies that you get, it’s a bargain.

Steampunk Spring

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

With February being the mushy month that it is, I decided to take a small break from all of that and visit The Broken Heart Fair. There’s a wide variety of goodies to be had at the fair, from decor to accessories to clothing and of course shoes. Most of the stalls had 30L or 35L items out as well as items going for 50% off and I had the good luck of grabbing this pair of Steampunk boots from Luas for only 35L. There’s no resisting a good pair of boots and I simply adore the chained gears detailing and those spikes that will no doubt add a subtle edge to any outfit. These Steampunk boots come with an alpha layer to help with the fit if you’re still on a classic avatar.

I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear

While you’re at The Broken Heart Fair, don’t forget to pick up the gifts that are available at the stores (just look for the heart-shaped box). You don’t need to have a group tag to get them and opening up boxes of free gifts after an outing is a fine way to pass the time yes? The bag in the picture is one such gift that you can get at the fair just by stopping by the Poet’s Heart stall. While it’s a long way to Halloween, I couldn’t resist bringing this cute, well-detailed bat bag with me on my adventures. There are two different variations of this bag in the prize package, one with a hold animation and one without.

The Broken Heart Fair is running until the 15th so hurry down and grab your gifts or do a little bit of shopping before it ends.

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And that’s a wrap. Have fun on Valentine’s Day guys! If you’re wondering about the song, well, train tracks.

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

High Lights

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Full Circle

Full Circle

I love 25L Tuesdays! Especially when the goodies are versatile like they are today! On a Lark has out a beautiful new dress in lots of colors for only 25L each that comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fits for Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass. This dress is a classic roleplay dress… BUT! It looks awesome as a go to dress for everyday wear as well… which makes it perfect for my inventory. And for the 25L price tag? I bought it in lots of colors!

I also stopped by Luas where my 25L bought me this awesome handbag and back-back set. You get both the handbag shown as well as a backpack (not shown) for your single 25L price. There were 3 other colors/designs, if the one in the picture above doesn’t suit you.

Full Circle 2

Chop Zuey also has out some beautiful new gifts that I wanted to share with you, and I really fell in love with their Circles Set. You can pick up the Circles Necklace in Gold as a group gift if you are a group member (the group fee is 350 but this gives you access to lots of regular group gifts). The earrings are a courtesy gift and FREE to all under the FabFree board. Just pay 0L and pick up the pretty matching earrings completely FREE 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
