A Jolie Fleur du Soir

Gavin is humoring me today while I “play pixie” again. ūüôā

I wanted to show you this gorgeous petite dress, La Fleur du Soir, the current group gift at Kastle Rock Petites. The group is free to join, and the sim is simply lovely, so be sure to give it a wander. You can see a little peek of it behind us (please click to enlarge).

Gavin is wearing the latest group gift from *Ydea*, also free to join. Included are the mesh hoodie jacket, shirt and tie, jeans, and shoes. Gavin’s Rhett¬†hair is a¬†pre-opening, sneak peak from brand-new designer { Quandry }. You can pick it up at the preview price of¬†100L for a little while longer at {EPIC}.¬†5 colors are included in the box, all with a little, red tip in the front. Scarlett, a long braid, is also¬†on preview for the ladies.

What I really wanted to show you is this skin. Aeva // Heartsick is currently having a sale, with lots of skins available for 100L each. When I saw that they were previewing a couple of new petite skins, I was intrigued, and tried the demo. Jolie Petite comes in several different shades, and includes a red, rose outfit in the box. Now, I won’t lie to you; it’s a bit of a pain putting a new skin over your petite avatar. Nothing at all like putting a new skin on your “biggie.” But it’s not hard – read the directions! – and I think the results are definitely worth it! Have you ever seen lips like this on a petite before?

My earrings are not free, but they are on sale at !ELEMENTAL PETITE for 50L. They are texture change with silver/gold metals, and 4 different gems. My hair is a free group gift from “”D!va”” (free to join; 30,000 Members Gift), and I’ve sized it waaaaay down to fit. All the “”D!va”” hairs I’ve tried are resizeable, and can be made to fit petite avatars; be sure you take a copy first. This one includes flowers, which I’m not wearing, a “wig” with a couple of extra buns, and there’s even a dress in the box! ūüôā

UPDATED 2/20/13 12:37 PM SLT: Great news! The designer has put the 2 Jolie Petite skins back out for sale because so many people were asking for them! They are still for sale at 100L/per shade so hurry over and grab them. I just picked up the Black Rose version, and I can’t wait to try it. She will also be putting out a 10L petite skin at The Wash Cart Sale, which opened today and¬†Love wrote about this morning. I haven’t seen it yet, so let me know what you think if you try it! ūüôā

UPDATED 2/18/2013 9:57 PM SLT: I’m sorry to report that the skin sale at Aeva // Heartsick has ended. ūüė¶ Hopefully the Jolie Petite skins will be available in the store soon.

Feeling the Love on Valentine’s Day

valentine6f

I’m in love! Yeah, I know, who doesn’t love a man in a tuxedo, right? ūüėČ Lucky for Gavin, I found this snazzy mesh tux at Sin Original as part of the Love Love Hunt. Even the shoes are included – not bad for only 1L! He’s also wearing the new Goldy Teal gift eyes from Amacci – no group join is needed.

My dress is a free Valentine’s Day gift from Snowpaws; there is also a petite version available, so ladies of all sizes can look dazzling today. Oh, and I got our dancing pose at the Valentine’s Sale at Glitterati Poses; all couples and friends poses are on sale until 21 February.

valentine11f

Gavin is a great guy, but I’m so in love with these SHOES! I joined the [Gos] Boutique group for free back when it first opened up, and I’m so glad I did; these special edition¬†Grace Sandals Red Glitter are a brand-new gift for group members. The join fee is 500L now, but… the Grace Sandals regularly cost more than the join fee, so pick up this gift and you’ve got your $L back. Part of what makes these shoes so amazing is the skin matching. To say that it’s easy – and it works! – would be an understatement. Seriously, a couple of clicks and you’re done. Behind me is the Who We Love Photoboard, the¬†Valentine’s Day VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). There are spaces for photos of 16 of your favorite people, and the board and frame are texture-change. I’ve added a few of my faves already. ūüôā

[Pink Fuel] released this scrumptious group gift today: Alyx <Peach> – Sultry. She comes with dark brows and 2 different eye makeups, and the [PF] group is free to join. Are those red lips luscious, or what? My Love’s Coming necklace and ring are both group gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The group is 350L to join, but even if you choose not to join, you can still pick up several other gifts, including these earrings, for free.

I would personally like to thank all the wonderful designers for their generosity this Valentine’s Day. Today has honestly been like Christmas all over again; while I was taking these photos, it seemed like a new gift came through every few minutes! If you get a chance, thank a designer.

Gavin and I hope you all have a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day! ‚̧

It’s Dirty Work… But Somebody’s Gotta Do It

shovel14f

Serena decided that this would be a good day for me to go outside and clean up the yard, so here I am… stalling. For starters, the snow is starting to melt, and the ground is a sludgy mess. Plus, it looks like the dogs have left some “presents” around for me to clean up. So basically, it’s a mess out here. Thank goodness I have my new Wellies… at least, they were new when I put them on. Anyway, these awesome, mesh boots are the latest group gift from SF Design (100L to join), and come in clean as well as dirty versions. My clothes – pants, jacket, and hat – are the current group gift from Ydea (free to join). They come with a pair of shoes, but I didn’t want to get them all muddy out here.

shovel17f

Can you believe I got this skin for 1L? That’s right – I picked up Mikael Warface Milk from P E A U on the Marketplace for 1L. And my eyes are a free, wearable demo of¬†Insufferable Dastard¬†mesh eyes; buy the box on the counter for 0L.

I guess I’ve stalled for long enough now. Off do do battle with the great outdoors!

An Epic Game Day

football3f

It’s Game Day here in the U.S., and to celebrate, {EPICOSITY} sent out these cool team hats to group members. Don’t worry, there’s also a hat for you Ravens fans. ūüôā The {EPICOSITY} group is free to join; check your notices for this hat and another that was sent a few days ago. I really don’t have a preference for the game today, since my team didn’t even make it to the playoffs. I went with the 49ers hat since they are geographically closest to me.

This awesome mesh jacket is a Menstuff¬†group gift (50L to join) from Dark Water Designs. My necklace is a group gift from ::GABRIEL:: (free to join), and I’m once again wearing the group gift jeans from Rispetto Designs¬†(50L to join) because, well, I really like them (still available under the Christmas tree). Oh, and my eyes are the new group gift from IKON. They’re the brand-new Lucid Eyes, and are truly spectacular. Guys, you deserve great-looking eyes too, so RUN, don’t walk, to IKON to pick up a pair. They’ll be available through February 7th.

Here’s hoping the power stays on at the Super Dome!

Afternoon Ice Skating

skating8f

My little corner of Second Life is starting to warm up (a little), but it’s still cold enough for an afternoon of ice skating. I’m such a klutz and tend to spend more time on my fanny than I do upright. But Gavin played hockey in high school and still gets around pretty well on his old skates. Duncan, my Great Dane, is such a protector… he’s not sure yet how he feels about Gavin, but would rather not get his paws all cold and wet, so he keeps watch from the sidelines. Good thing… I’d probably fall on him anyway! ūüė≥

Today I’m wearing a super-cozy, mesh sweater dress, the Cold Winter Nights Hunt prize from !gO!¬†(there is also a male version in the box). All prizes in this hunt are 10L, and will be available until February 15th. Gavin’s sweater is¬†the Winter Wonderland Hunt¬†gift from Rispetto Designs. WWL Hunt gifts are free (0L) and are available until February 15th. Completing the look, Gavin added a pair of mesh jeans, also from Rispetto Designs, which you can still find under the Christmas tree for a few more days (hurry!). His texture-change scarf is a free gift from ::[MrPoet]::. And those hockey skates? The CWNH prize from [ Organica ]. I picked up this cute pose at the Valentine’s Sale at Glitterati Poses; all couples and friend poses are on sale until February 21st.

skating11ff

The skin I’m in today is the Femboy Hunt gift from .::WoW Skins::. This is a female skin that comes with and without cleavage. Prizes in the FBH are 2L, but you’ll need to hurry because the hunt ends today! I picked up my cute hair for 70% off at the [Elikatira] Retirement Sale. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale until February 23rd, and then everything will be retired. So don’t miss this fabulous sale! Oh, and my earrings, which you can barely see, are a dollarbie from Addiction Jewelry. ¬†You’ll find them in a gift box on the table when you walk in.

Gavin’s skin is the¬†Xmas Gift¬†in the male group gift box from -Belleza-¬†(250L to join);¬†it comes in several different shades. The pose he’s in behind me is from a pack from last week’s Fifty Linden Friday by Glitterati Poses. It was still available at the 50L price as of this afternoon, but it won’t be there tomorrow, I’m sure!

I’d better go save him now… I think Duncan is giving him the evil eye!

[:B!ASTA:] Menswear Sale is Cool Beans

b!asta9f

Hey everyone. Serena asked me to let you ¬†know that [:B!ASTA:] is closing its menswear department. I don’t know exactly when, but she seems to think it might be soon. Anyway, all items in the men’s section are on sale from 5L – 30L, and fatpacks are only 50L. I stopped by yesterday and picked up these pants and shirt for 10L each. I even picked up a set of men’s eyelashes for the same price.

My skin is Jacob, one of the current men’s group gifts at -Belleza-. There’s a 250L fee to join, but you get 3 different skins in almost every possible shade in the box, so it’s really a great value. My shoes are a free group gift from ::GABRIEL:: (free to join), my ring is a free gift from Chop Zuey (no group needed), and I found my watch on the Marketplace for 1L. I have no idea who belongs to that cat.

It Was A Cold Winter Night… Outside These Four Walls

It may have been a cold, winter night outside, but inside these four walls, it was warm and cozy! Like Love, I recently did a little Cold Winter Nights Hunting. And she did not exaggerate about how fabulous the prizes are in this hunt! Check out Love’s post here for more information about the Cold Winter Night Hunt and for photos of some of the great prizes she picked up.

cwnh31f

I invited Gavin over to see my new Little Getaway Skybox, the CWNH prize from Designer Prims. I had so much fun playing with the options on this amazing skybox that I may have gotten an eensy bit carried away. Seriously though, there is almost nothing you can’t mod, so you can customize it to be whatever you want it to be. There’s a menu-driven panel to change the floor, brick walls, and accent wood; the rest you can just re-texture yourself. Trust me, your 10L will be well spent on this one! The furniture you see here (most of it) is part of the hunt prize from Cleo Design. It¬†includes two different sofas, a rug, coffee table with candles and fruit, a magazine rack, and a mirror and set of pictures that you can’t see in this picture. Again, I went a little nuts playing with the color options on the sofas. They come with several fun animations, and even dispense props! The lovely artwork you see over the green sofa not a hunt prize, but is a gift from Whiskey Monday to celebrate the first anniversary of Atelier Kreslo. There is also second gift, which I’ll show you in a bit.

Another view of the skybox. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

cwnh22f

I had this empty back wall and nothing to fill it up, so I accidentally on-purpose wandered off into another hunt: The Four Walls Hunt.

fw-logo-copy

The Four Walls Hunt runs until January 31st, and includes 37 stores. All prizes are 20L, but are valued at 200L or more. Be sure to visit the official blog for prize photos and SLURLs. You’ll be hunting for an evergreen tree in a cardboard box.

OFFICIAL FOUR WALLS HUNT BLOG

PRIZE PREVIEW AND SLURLS

Ok, back to my empty wall: I saw a picture of the¬†Miller Dresser and Positive Words Art from PILOT¬†and decided that I absolutely had to have it. Can you believe the dresser is only 2 L.I.? Oh, and see that cakestand full of delicious cupcakes? Another Four Walls prize, this time from Sway’s. It comes with the plates and cups you saw on the table in the previous pictures, as well as a couple of cute wall-hangings. Yummy! The Bird Cage Lamp is not a hunt item, but rather a free gift from Sway’s. There is also a smaller version in the box. Over in the corner is another non-hunt item, the Mayfair Trunk (Old Glory), a VIP group gift from {what next}¬†(250L to join). The bookcase and furnishings inside are part of the skybox. ūüôā

cwnh18_2f

Gavin is such a “Sheldon” that I decided to pick up the¬†Star Party¬†star-gazing set, the CWNH prize from -Hanaya-. It is mesh, weighs in at 9 L.I., and comes with menu-driven animations for up to three avatars. It’s really a lot of fun to play with. Hey, looks like Gavin found something!

cwnh18f

Here is an outside view of the skybox. The inside brick texture carries to the outside wall. There is a door on the other side, in case you decide to put your home on land instead of floating in the sky.

cwnh32f

More evidence of my “modding madness”: I took out the fireplace that came with the skybox and added this Oak Fireplace, the CWNH prize from [Barnesworth Anubis]. The mirror over the mantle and the two pictures to the left of the fireplace are part of the Cleo Design CWNH prize. And the little daisy on a chair is the other anniversary gift from Atelier Kreslo; it comes in 3 sizes, with this one being the largest. To the right of the fireplace is the Pallet Log Box, the most recent VIP group gift from {what next}. Gavin and I decided to finish off those cupcakes; we’re snuggling in the Warming Up couples pose, the CWNH prize from Atooly.

Oh, and about what we’re wearing: Gavin’s¬†beautifully textured mesh sweater is the CWNH prize from {Epicosity}, and my sparkly Pom Pom sweater is the prize from ::PurpleMoon::. My pants are not a hunt prize, but I’ll tell you about them anyway: they are the R.icielli Mesh SALLY Skinny Pants, available for 10L on the Marketplace. You get 10 different colors in the box, each in 5 standard sizes. How’s that for a deal? UPDATE:¬†Gavin’s pants are a holiday gift from Rispetto Designs, and will be available to group members until approximately February 1st (50L to join); look for the boxes under the Christmas tree.¬†We’re both wearing free skins; Gavin’s is part of the latest group gift from -Belleza- (250L to join), and mine is [ROCKBERRY]’s free gift at FabFree Headquarters.

Whew! Any cupcakes left?

Trick or Treating in Kauna and UW.St.

kauna2_Final

It’s almost time to go trick or treating and Kauna wants to make sure your dressed warm for the chilly night ahead. They have two Halloween knit sweaters as free gifts at their store near their other sweaters. Above I am wearing the skeleton and below I have on the pumpkin. If you haven’t had a chance yet, I highly reccommend the Ghost of Halloween hunt that I told Xiu about. My sexy orange hairstyles in both pictures are GOH hunt gifts from UW.St. The adorable pumpkin bucket above and pumpkin bag below are GOH hunt gifts from SEY.

kauna1_Final

I was looking for the perfect mesh pants to go with this outfit and came across them from B&T on the Fashion Boulevard Halloween Hunt! You can pickup the Mesh Black Spiderweb Jeans once you locate the skull and buy it for just 10L. Men’s gifts are hidden in silver skulls. Speaking of skulls…you can get my Skull N¬†Crossbones¬†shoes for just 5L on a very short hunt from the Halloween sim exploring their haunted house. The cute bracelet of skulls in my mouth is a freebie from (-Atypical-).

kauna3_Final

The handsome skin I am in is another version of the current group gift from ~Tableau Vivant~. It is the Marilyn skin which comes in the light tone I am wearing, but also the darker tone I blogged before. The Tableau Vivant group costs 50L to join and has great new gifts every month. My sparkling mesh eyes are Pearl- Clear Pond from Poetic Colors which are free for joining their subscribe kiosk.

Don’t delay, Halloween is almost here and soon these offers will be history!

Finding my SWAG and AlterEgo

swag1_final

“I made it to the sim and there was no lag
so I started walkin’ and collected some SWAG!”

The SWAG Fest is wrapping up soon and ends on October 31st. This is your last chance to score the SWAG freebies and dollarbies along with some exclusive merchandise only sold at this event. AlterEgo has a dollarbie with a mesh Logo Hoodie and mesh Logo Fitted Cap (seen below on the right). While I was there I couldn’t resist buying the mesh Black Swag Sweatpants at 250L that paired so well with the hoodie. My fellow bloggers Love and Renee have given me the nickname “The Diva”… and so of course I had to buy the Diva Fitted Cap as well for 50L. The mesh Checkered Nerd Glasses are a dollarbie from *Epic* and includes a HUD to change the color.

To find the freebies, cheapies, and dollarbies at SWAG look for the kiosks located around the parks in each shopping district.

On the Right: From ::Mango:: you can get the free mesh¬†Souvenir¬†V-Neck Shirt located in their shop at the event. My mesh Logo Fitted Cap is in the dollarbie from AlterEgo. The mesh Devious Smile Face Mask is a dollarbie from {PopTart} located in their shop at the event. My Gold Double Link Necklace is a free gift from Men’s Treasures in their Pumpkin Hunt.

At the Cinema with Fennux and 22769

cinema1_Final“Hey! That’s my favorite place to sit you little moocher!”

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Cinema event yet, you are missing out! Many designers have made exclusive designs themed around the movies for sale only at this event. ¬†I made my way to the concession stand and found a LOT of FREE yummy goodies made by the sponsors. Everything from popcorn, slurpies, nachos, sodas, candies, etc. I was in snack heaven! I walked into the 3D theater where I found a creature sitting in my favorite seat! I learned about him by joining the Fennux group for free and got my own 3D Glasses Fennux Grabber Pet. It’s a good thing I found a pair of free 3D glasses for myself at Insufferable Dastard in the Sci-Fi theater. I was dressed to impress thanks to an exclusive outfit from 22769 in the Action theater where I picked up the Diktator Jacket in Red and Diktator Pants in White.

The Cinema event lasts until Oct 31st, so don’t miss it!
