A Quiet Moment With Idelisa

Solitude

Hello Fabulous Readers!  It was a day to pause and be thankful here in the US as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  After a dinner with family, the pupster and I spent a peaceful evening at the Kittens Cradle sim.  It’s really a wonderful place to explore!

Introducing…Idelisa

In my past couple of posts {HERE} and {HERE}, I’ve shown you some beautiful Lucky Board prizes available at .Lunaria.  While we were waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I spotted a gorgeous long gown on the free Daily Prize Board and gave the vendor a tap.  I waited patiently, then as midnight rolled around, “Idelisa” was delivered to my inventory.  A long white, sleeveless gown, with golden trim, this lovely frock features a fitted bodice and a skirt which falls gracefully to floor level.  I really like the way the ivory fabric fades into sparkling golden tones at the hemline.  With sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies, this free frock will fit a majority of avatars.  The target for the daily prize is just 25, so teleport on over to the shop, invite your friends, and it’s a pretty good bet that the goal of 25 slaps will be met!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Physique
  • Venus

After our delicious turkey dinner, we sliced into that pumpkin pie I’ve been talking about and it was …. heavenly!  Thank goodness it turned out ok……I’ve been looking forward to it for days! 🙂  Maybe I should make pies more often, but then again, that was RL, not SL, so calories count.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

As Luck Would Have It…

As Luck Would Have It

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post to share a stunning free skirt I picked up as a lucky board prize at .Lunaria.  The Kaelyn maxi skirt falls in a slender line from your hips to about mid-shin length, where it flares as it sweeps the ground for freedom of movement.  Ivory white in color (the windlight setting I used made it look greenish for some reason, but it is white), it features circular adornments at the waistline, which add visual interest.  I really love the sleek, sophisticated look this outfit evokes!  Kaelyn comes in sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Lunaria group tag (it’s completely free to join), and cross your fingers.  I was lucky enough to scoop this baby up during my first few minutes of waiting.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S and M (I don’t see an L in my folder, but that could be a glitch in unloading the package)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

About the Pie…

So, to give you an update:  while Ripley snoozed the afternoon away today, I *was* successful in creating a pie.  I have to admit, though, it took two tries to get a crust that rolled out large enough for the pie plate.  It smelled so delicious as the oven worked its magic.  We will see tomorrow how it tastes.  I’m hoping my luck holds out for a flavorful pie as well as it did for all my lucky board prizes in SL!  Until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating, and happy shopping to all our Fabulous Readers!

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cobalt Blue

truthlunari
Good day Fabulous Readers! I hope you had a nice Halloween. My evening was pretty quiet and comfy on the sofa with minimal trick or treaters due to the rain, and the fact that the kids on my block keep getting older…  It was so quiet that I am just over half way through the second season of Stranger Things!  Anyone else watching that one on Netflix?  Wow it’s creepy, and very unique.

Today I am here to show off a couple group gifts that I hope you’ll like enough to go grab!  Since it’s November 1st, I thought it was a good idea to get out of the black and orange and into some blue before the red and green take over my inventory!

Satiny Smooth

This corset style stunning cobalt blue dress with high cut flashy leg panels is so beautifully  textured you can almost feel the satin against your skin.  You can pick this Siofra Dress up as a free group gift at Lunaria on the group gift wall.  This group is free to join and there are other gifts to obtain as well.  Astrid showed you another one of the pretty group gift dresses back in July [HERE] and more recently their midnight mania board prize [HERE].

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XS-XL + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Truth was up to Tricks AND Treats

Truth VIPs (300L join fee) for the month of October were tricked and treated with two gifts!  The first was a playful pumpkin head with a curly Q on top, and the second is the Makena Hairstyle you see me wearing today, and in the ad below so you can see all of the features including the new split colour option.  The Truth VIP group has been giving out fatpacks of hair every month, so if you aren’t in it already – it’s a good place to put those lindens you were setting aside!  These gifts can be picked up at the mainstore with your tag activated.

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

One Moment in Time

One Moment_001

It’s that one moment of magic when the moon is still out in the morning as the sun rises and both are out at the same time… The sky is a color that no painter can capture, but Lunaria almost captures the color on this free gift dress I found.

Annabel don’t cry for me…

I’m not sure if this free group gift dress by Lunaria called “Annabel” was meant to be a roleplay dress or not, but it sure would be perfect for one. If you’re not into roleplay, it’s beautiful for any other occasion as well, and it makes me think of moors and songs and poems by Edgar Allan Poe like “Annabel Lee.” The fabric is an amazing texture as far as the color… shimmering in different hues of blue with a sheer hem, and it comes in a variety of sizes for all your needs.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

If you love this dress, be happy! There was another free group gift out, as well as a Midnight Mania board, and three lucky letter boards too!

More magic.

As if this dress wasn’t enough to make my day, NSP Florals has out a magical gift right now in the form of this Pastoral Bliss Hair and Wreath. The hair has wisps around the face and a braid down the back. The hair and wreath are separate pieces, so you can wear the hair by itself, or pair the wreath with another hairstyle you already own if you like. You’ll only be getting the ginger color in the hair, but it is simply stunning, and I was happy to change out of my usual silver locks for the day.

NSP Florals has a one time join fee of 125L for their group, and you’ll need the group tag to pick up your gift, but the creator puts out a beautiful monthly gift. So if you join this month to get this gift, you’ll be set to get next month’s gift and all the gifts to come!
