Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Wishing for Winter

Wishing for Winter

It’s the time of year in my world physical and virtual that I start to wish for snow. Perhaps because I almost never get to experience temperatures cold enough for snow where I live, I find that I long for that story-book white snowy winter. I am also so ready to break out the winter wardrobe. Thank goodness Second Life has me covered, here I get my snow, and a pretty stellar closet full of winter clothing. Speaking of clothing, this outfit is the most recent group gift at Vooh.

Vooh

There are actually several group gifts available at Vooh, Group Gift 76 is the most recent. I really like the look of this all-in-one outfit. The jacket, sweater dress, and undershirt are all one piece. I love that it makes me appear as though my hands are tucked warm into my pockets. Also, the outfit includes matching boots, and a beret (not worn). The jacket/sweater dress combo has a color change hud with several solid color options for the main part of the jacket, the dress, the undershirt, as well as the metal parts of the jacket. Additionally the hud will allow you to tint each part, and adjust things like glow and materials. The boots and beret have their own similar customization huds with matching color choices. The required Vooh store group has a join fee of 50 linden, which if you ask me is well worth it.

Jacket/Sweater Dress Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer
Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza (Freya, Isis/Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Fitted Mesh, TMP

Guilty

 

Guilty

If I’m being accused of enjoying the freebies I picked up at The Jail event, guilty as charged! I know I know, I already did a post about the event, and the fact that they’re having an anniversary. I just couldn’t help sharing a few more of the fantastic gifts. Incase you missed them, Aline posted about The Jail event gifts here, and my last post “Who Run the World” featured a few of them as well. The Jail event gifts are all free, you just need the free-to-join group tag. For this post I’m featuring the free gifts at The Jail event by Simply Saddii, Immortuos, and Dark Love.

The Jail Event Group: secondlife:///app/group/e9238129-1407-9f47-3533-35ec703bfcbf/about

Simply Saddii 

I really like this little black dress by Simply Saddii, and not just because it’s free at The Jail event. I like the style of the dress, and I feel like it has just the right amount of whimsy without being too juvenile for my taste. Again, this dress is free, just wear your Jail event group tag and click the gift vendor at the Simply Saddii both.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Immortuos 

The chest tattoo I’m wearing is the free Jail event gift by Immortuos. It reads “guilty” and I find it dark, a little bit cheeky, and really well done. It also comes in “irritation” levels which gives it some added detail that most lettering tattoos. The irritation shows as the redness around a freshly inked tattoo or perhaps skin irritation around the letters for some other reason.

Layers/Appliers Included: BOM Layers (tattoo, tattoo irritation1, tattoo irritation2), Omega Applier

Dark Love

Finally, the planchette and hold pose used for this photo is part of the free gift by Dark Love at The Jail event. The gift includes 4 planchettes, each with a different hold pose. I thought this gift was just too cute to not share. The planchettes also have a little particle effect. They emit cutely sinister looking little particles while you hold the planchette.

Giuliadesign

The vest style top I am wearing is part of the free Jail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.EUSOPIA

  • Shirt Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Hanz

The tattoo I am wearing is by Hanz. It’s also free at The Jail, just don’t forget that group tag. I’m happy to say that this tattoo is unisex. It comes tattoo comes in appliers and BOM layers so anyone should be able to wear it, classic or mesh.

Appliers/Layers Included: BOM Layers (Faded, Fresh), Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, Omega Applier, Maitreya Applier

Madame Noir

Lastly, the choker I have on is a free Jail event gift by Madame Noir. It’s called the Elektra necklace and it has a cool metal clasp in the front. It also has resize scripts, and a color change hud. The hud has several solid color choices for the leather/fabric and different metallic options for the metal bits.

Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

As I’ve mentioned before I may not celebrate what at least in the U.S. is considered a traditional Thanksgiving, but I do believe very much in practicing thankfulness. I am thankful for autumn weather, for the beauty of the season, thankful for love, and for friendship. Honestly, the more I think on it, the more I have to be thankful for. That is a very beautiful and fortunate thing. I also am so thankful I have the opportunity to be here doing something I enjoy, sharing awesome finds with all of you.

Clawtooth

For this post I have some bitter-sweet news. Clawtooth is closing for good at the end of the month. Bubbles Clawtooth, the designer behind the store, sent out a lovely sentiment explaining their appreciation for all that Second Life has given them, and their carefully made decision to move away from Second Life and on to other projects. What does that mean for us? The entire Clawtooth store is on sale at 70% off from now through the end of November. I am not at all ashamed to admit I spent a few more lindens than I needed to picking up some of the lovely hairstyles that will be gone forever once Clawtooth closes. There is also a free holiday hairstyle with no group needed, and I saw at least one group gift. No group is required for the sale, and gachas are included. Most of the hairstyles appeared to be priced between 45 – 66 linden per color pack, and gachas were averaging at 25 linden per play.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gifts

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to show off a few of the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. As I’m sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join and there’s a full (continually updated) group gift list here of all the free gifts. I’m wearing the Fab Free group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins, the gift choker from West End, and the jacket/shirt combo gift by Northern Sky Creations.

7 Deadly Skins

The free Fab Free group gift skin at 7 Deadly Skins is a cute freckled female skin called Genie. She comes in a “lights” skin-tone pack with BOM layers, and Omega appliers for body and head.

West End

The free gift at West End for Fab Free group members is their “Simple Little Choker.” It has resize scripts, and a color change hud with 17 color choices.

Northern Sky Creations

Northern Sky Creations has a comfy red and black plaid jacket with a black shirt under it as a free group gift for Fab Free members. The top and jacket are all one piece and come in the following sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy.

But First, Wine

Anti-Turkey Day

Hello Fab Free, I hope your week has been going well. This girl could use a great big glass of wine and it’s only Wednesday. haha Though I personally do not celebrate Thanksgiving, I am very much thankful for so many things. That is my one take-away from this November holiday. Needless to say I was happy to see some hunt prizes on the Jerky Turkey Hunt that were still perfect for fall but not blaringly Thanksgiving themed. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is a dollarbie hunt that will run from now until Nov. 30th. For this post I hunted down the his and hers hunt prize at Wicked Inc., and the makeup prize at The Little Bat.

The Jerky Turkey Hunt Website: http://evilbunnyhunt.blogspot.com/

Wicked Inc. 

This yellow and orange skull pattern sweater is the Jerky Turkey Hunt prize at Wicked Inc. I liked the skull pattern because it’s different from what you might usually see this time of year. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in female mesh sizes and standard mesh male sizes.

Hunt HintAlthough the guy downstairs thinks he’s classy the one at the top of the stairs that has a classy hat.

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL)
Female Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

The Little Bat

I’m always interested in makeup, it’s so fun and can be subtle or absolutely transformative. The Little Bat has a set of gothic fall lippies as their Jerky Turkey Hunt prize. I like the black upper lip that fades into a warm autumn color on the lower lip. The set includes 4 rusty autumn lip colors to choose from.

Hunt Hint: Oh deer, is that a turkey feather?!

Included: Omega Applier, BOM Layers

Happy happy weekend Fab Free! Whatever your weekend plans may be, I hope they include something fun. Fashion has always been something I enjoy. My favorite part of finding things for Fab Free is dressing up in them. For this post I’m sharing the free group gift at Gawk! and the free group gift No Cabide along with a free group gift pose set by Versuta. Have a wonderful weekend Fab Free’rs!

Gawk!

I have been wearing this dress from Gawk! for a few days now. It’s so cute on, I don’t want to take it off. It’s their most recent group gift. I love the paisley print, and the muted fall colors. This paisley print dress comes with a color change hud with three color choices. The Gawk! group is free to join at this time as well.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

No Cabide

No Cabide is celebrating their group members and gifting us with the cutest boots! These wedged combats are so fun and have a ton of color options. The hud has quite a few solid colors to pick from in 8 separate parts of the boot. That will make more sense when you get yours! lol I know my photo is dark, so I’ve added the vendor photo for these cute cute cute boots below. The No Cabide group is free to join, and you’ll find these boots in the past notices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Legacy, Slink, Belleza, Unrigged

Versuta

It’s no secret that as a blogger and photographer I’m a sucker for free poses. Versuta has a free to join group and several group gift sets of very cute female poses as group gifts. The pose I used in my photo is from their November group gift pose set “Sayuri.” It has five static poses.

Foxy November

Thankful for November

When the temperature is perfect, the sun is shining, and the air is crisp and cool I can’t resist the allure of spending some time outdoors. It’s good for the psyche. Speaking of goodness, it doesn’t hurt to look good while you’re taking a moment to feel good. Pink Cream Pie and Demicorn have lovely new group gifts out, and I can’t help but feel extra cute wearing them.

Pink Cream Pie 

My foxy top is the November group gift at Pink Cream Pie. This top really couldn’t be any cuter. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 12 adorable fox patterns to choose from as well as 12 solid fall color choices. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few previous group gifts still available, as well as lucky letter boards for group members.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy
