A little Lemon love on Monday…Oh wait, it’s Thursday!

Happy Monday my loves! I know, it’s not Monday…however, I had been planning on publishing this post Monday evening, right after I got home from my bowling league…and wouldn’t you know it, SL had other ideas and wouldn’t let me in. Oh well. Let me tell you about what I am wearing though, as no matter the day, it’s still good stuff!

I have 2 group gifts to show you this evening, both from Allure. Now, Allure is one of those shops that instead of having demos out for you to try on, they put out free group gifts for almost every item they sell, and they are your demos. Luckily, the group is free to join, and on top of all the group gifts available, there are store gift certificates too, some inside some of the gifts, some just out in the store waiting for you to grab while wearing your tag. I know, it’s amazing! Ok, let me tell you about what I am wearing. The lovely lemon yellow zipper dress I have on is the Lotus dress, and it is mesh, in the standard sizes. You also get a bra and panty set in the bag with this dress. I am so in love with the colour, makes me think of a lemon meringue pie! Yum!! The other gift I am wearing, are my gorgeous, green Juliet heels, for SLink high feet. The multitude of straps makes them both fun, and sexy, which is a great combination, as it allows you to wear them with so many different looks. As an added bonus, there is a really nice, mesh, black dress included in the folder with your shoes! I think the green looks great with the yellow of my dress, especially once I finished adding accessories. I am now ready for a night out on the town…or, as I seem to have ended up, some kind of spacey, futurey type bar. Hmm…how do I end up in these places! LOL.

OK, I must tell you, tonight, I leave you all for a little while. I have decided to tackle a few much-needed projects in RL, and need to take a little SL break. There are just not enough hours in the day! I promise, I will be back before you know it, I can never stay away too long. So, until next time, TTFN.

All I need is a great pair of shoes

And so we reach mid week, my dears. I hope all is well in your RL and your SL. The weather is still miserable here so I’ve been camped out in my SL finding all kinds of fun free and almost free things for us. After the Cart sale at the Wash, I decided to check out a designer who is quickly becoming one of my favorites: DUH!

yellowflats_001

The shop is full of fantastic shoes and even more fantastic bargains. These cute gold ballet flats are a completely free for everyone gift! The ‘Sunny Yellow Sequin Slippers’ fit system feet for y’all who haven’t gone the SLink route. Simple and so well made, I think these will fill many a wardrobe spots. Next is my favorite find today – The ‘Rainy Day Boots’!

rainboots_001

These purple polka dotted rain boots are another free gift! The ‘Rainy Day’ comes in seven colors but only the purple ones are a free gift. I fell so in love with these so much I had to build an outfit around them. I found the ‘Ladies Trench Coat Chanel’ from Divine Essence Designs on the Marketplace for just 15L. Lastly, is the umbrella. This is the full perm mesh ‘Umbrella’ from Flax Pye Studio also on the Marketplace. This is a blank mesh for builders and comes with both an opened and closed version and the color and shadow patterns. All for 20L.

Classy Girls

Snapshot_004Good evening Fabulous Readers :)  It seems SL is  undergoing some emergency maintenance and has every so rudely kicked me out lol, but lucky for me it was after I had these pictures already taken!  So..  I can share news of the classy new group gift at ANIN a GRIS with you. The beautifully textured ecru Sabrina Dress I am wearing today is the gift you can pick up after joining the FREE inworld ANIN a GRIS group.

Need a pair of sweet heels to go with your new dress?  These will cost you a little… but not much!  The SHEY Sweet Bow Stilettos that add onto the Slink High Feet are available on marketplace for just 30L.  The best part about this super low price?  It incudes a HUD that allows for 35 different colours, which means you can wear these with about anything!

Monday Grey

Happy Monday, my dears!
It’s kind of gray and gloomy here in my RL and it put me in the mood for oversized cardigans and cozy things. Mr. Poet has supplied just the thing for a chilly wet day: their “Bat Sleeved Knit Coat”. Now, technically, this cardigan and scarf are for the boys but I think they look great on anyone.
Snapshot_001

This is the gray cardigan but you also get a black one and a blue one in the gift. The “Wide Scarf” is a separate gift, it is resizable and has ten color changes. I was really impressed with the quality of the builds on these items. Both gifts are free for everyone!

Topping this casual day look is my new do from Cheveux. This is their Christmas gift now available to everyone for 1 little Linden. You can find it in the main store or on the Marketplace. I love the soft mix of browns and golds in the aptly named “Brown Mix. The style also comes in a pale blonde in the gift.

Y’all stay warm today!

Shamic’s running amok with the Men Only Hunt!

So, I’ve decided to let Shamic do a post tonight since I had already done 2 for myself earlier. Plus, there are some great men’s things available right now with the Men Only Hunt 5 going on. I also suggested he head over to the ‘stuff Lounge and see if there were some goodies to show off.

MOH51

So, Shamic made a few stops from the Men Only Hunt list, which you have to get from HERE, as there are no LM’s in each hunt prize to send you to the next location. Luckily, the list also includes hints, which made the prizes a little easier to find. When I saw DuckNipple on the list, that was the first place I sent Shamic too, as I knew there would be something good. Neither of us were disappointed. The long-sleeved, striped sweater he has on is their hunt gift, and, as with all of the gifts, it was free. It is mesh, and comes in 2 fitmesh sizes, as well as 3 standard sizes. Shamic is a standard medium, but he had to go with the small, as they fit a little on the large size. The other hunt prize he’s showing off is from MINA Hair. His Alex knit toque and dark brown hair combo is their hunt prize, and you actually get 2 different hair versions, as well as the hat without the hair, meaning this is easily a unisex prize. It also comes with a HUD to change the texture of the toque. When hunting for MOH5 prizes, you are looking for a tall glass of beer :) . It made me thirsty! LOL.

MOH52

After clothing himself in his new finds, Shamic’s trip to the ‘stuff Lounge rewarded him with a new pair of sneakers. These multicoloured chucks are from Citrus, and are a free MENstuff group gift. The MENstuff group is L$50 to join, but the gifts from the different designers are always getting switched out, so there is always good stuff to grab.

MOH53

I think Shamic is rather pleased with his look. What do you think? Not bad for a bunch of freebies eh? OK, we are out of here, I’ve let Shamic have enough time running around by himself and it’s time for me to put him away before he gets into trouble. LOL! Until next time, TTFN.

Some beach, somewhere…..

Hello, my dears! I don’t know about y’all but it’s so so very cold here in the States this week! There’s snow all over the place and we’re not going to get above freezing today or tomorrow. So this is the perfect time to go to the beach! Right? Okay, maybe not in real life but in SL it’s beach time any time! With that in mind, I took a run at the 0L  Summer in January Hunt  . Besides, January IS the middle of Summer in New Zealand and Australia! ** waves to her Kiwi Friends!**

BeachBunny1

This is a very smexy offering from Ayva’s Attic. There is a great pair of men’s board shorts in the gift as well for you gentlemen. The barely there halter top and shorty sarong skirt might not be the best for surfing but you will surely turn some heads on the beach.

Next is the gift from Grumble: a strapless bikini in my favorite color – purple.  And when you’re ready to take a break from the surf, you can relax on this beach blanket from Kabuki Creations. It comes with the stack of towels, a bottle of wine and the great little vintage radio. There are two pose balls – one sit and one stretched out sun bathing pose.

beach_003

But what if you’re stuck in winter and can’t get to the beach? Ms. B. Designs has got the answer – your own wading pool! The pool comes with poses for two and is fillable with water or.. ice cubes if you really need to cool off.  So just slip on some shades, like these from B. Barbie Style, grab a yummy ‘adult beverage’ served in a coconut and enjoy your January!

An icy blue dream….with my cat.

Hello all you beautiful fabfree’rs, and you handsome ones too ;) How has your weekend been? I decided I wanted to take one of my cat’s out for a wander around SL this evening, and wouldn’t you know it, my newest baby, Pirilti, matched my outfit perfectly! Is it wrong that I considered that when choosing who to take out? LOL. Oh well, she enjoyed herself, as I ended up on a bridge surrounded by trees full of birds for her to watch while I posed. So what am I wearing that colour coordinates with my cat….let me show you!

icyblue1

I have to start with my super cute dress. This is the latest free Facebook gift from Alaskametro, and if you haven’t taken advantage of these gifts from them before, it requires a little bit of work. First you need to be logged in to Facebook, and then head on over to Alaskametro’s Facebook Page and ‘like’ it. Once that is done, hit the ‘special promotions’ tab and you should be taken to a picture of this dress, which also has a promotion code. Under the picture are the instructions on what to do once you TP yourself, in SL, over to Alaskametro‘s building. Here’s a hint, make sure you type the code in exactly as you see it, meaning all capital letters. The Ingrid Tunic dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and I really love the open sleeves.

icyblue3

While you are in the building, you might as well take a look to the left of  the Facebook gifts poster, and you will see a little gacha machine. For only L$3 a play, you will receive one of the Byzantine nail appliers sets that give you a hud for both SLink finger and toe nails, as well as an Omega applier for both. Hopefully you have more luck than I did…I got several repeats of the same 4 colours! LOL. For such a small price per play though, I don’t mind really. I’ve included a shot of the gacha ad so you can see the large assortment of colours available, as well as the other 2 patterns. I, btw, am wearing the Mocha colour.

icyblue2
icyblue4

Lastly, did you noticed that gorgeous unicorn ring on my finger? Well, it is a group gift from the current round of the Oneword event, and it is from Moon Amore. This months theme/word, is Dream, and I think a unicorn fits that theme perfectly. You get 3 different colour combinations, I am wearing the silver/blue version. This gift is free after you join the Oneword group, which is free to join. There are several more gifts for group members, from other stores as well, so make sure you grab all of them. This round of Oneword runs until the 15th, so don’t take too long before heading over there, it’ll be gone before you know it.

OK, I think Pirilti is getting ready to leap off this bridge, some of those birds are purposely taunting her, I’m sure of it. I’m off for now, but I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Solange, and thanks for all the fish?

Happy New Year everyone! I know, I’m a little late, since it is already the 3rd! But, since I was with you all for most of the 31st, I think I can be forgiven….right? LOL. OK, how about I show you 2 gorgeous group gifts that just so happen to work perfectly with each other?

train

*Edit to add – this dress may no longer be available, despite a sign showing it is, I have IM’d the store manager and will let you all know as soon as I find anything out! Sorry about that :( *

*Second Edit – OK, I did a little more digging, and although I was told the gift is only available for a short time, I think there was just a malfunction. The dress is indeed still in the subscribo, and if you are already a member, it is in the history from Dec 25, or, you can unsubscribe and then resubscribe and it will be sent to you right away (I checked 3 times this time ;) *

First off is this lovely dress from Loovus. It is their most recent subscribo gift, so no group space will be used to get this freebie! Yayy. The .::Loovus::. Solange – Cypress is such a nice, simple, yet tasteful dress, you can dress it up or down as the occasion calls for. It is mesh, and comes with the standard sizes, and I really like the drapping effect in the skirt, it looks so natural :) .

train4

The second group gift I’m showing off, are my super cute shoes! I love shoes…just thought I’d put that out there in case it wasn’t obvious yet :P . These beauties are the current free group gift from Ecce Bellus, and they are a special, dark brown version of the Barbara shoes that are a new release. They are made for SLink high feet, and don’t be alarmed if when you first put them on they are up by your ankles. It took me a second to remember that they are not rigged and could easily be adjusted! The Ecce Bellus group is L$50 to join, but it is well worth that nominal fee, as the group gifts are given quite regularly. You will find this one in the notices btw, and as it was sent out on the 22nd, you only have until the 5th to grab it there. Also, there is a pack of 3 shoes, free for group members, in the store, right beside the group join sign.

train3

So…how’s that? Did I redeem myself? LOL. Great freebies are always good for redemption in my mind! OK lovelies…that is it for me for now. You know me though, I already have the subject of my next post lined up and ready. So, until then…TTFN!

All that glitters is…pink?

There are less than 2hrs left until it is midnight here in SL, and I said I would be back before the evening was over, so here I am! I know any of you who are have parties to go to, are probably already dressed, but, I figured just in case you were still agonizing over a party look, I’d show you one last one!

flashy1

Before I go on, I have to credit my Mom, partially, for this look. LOL. She was running around collecting almost everything I am wearing, for herself, while I was working on my last post. She looked so good once she was done, and was so impressed with it, that she told me I had to show it off! Luckily I agreed with her, and had already had plans to go scoop up this gorgeous, glittery, mesh New Years Eve dress gift from Sugar Button Boutique to show you all! It is free for everyone, so no need for a group. It comes in the standard sizes…and I am so in love with that glittery texture!

flashy3

Wanting to stick with the glitter, and knowing I had been a tease in my previous post, in only showing you 1 of the free for all gift hairs from .Olive., I thought I’d show off another one. This one is called the Blue, and like the other hair, comes with a hud with 12 textures total. What do you think of a blonde Calle?

flashy2

My gorgeous SLink high feet shoes were all my Mom. She found these as a free SLF&O group gift from NoName. The SLF&O group is free to join, you just need to have your tag on when you head over to the NoName store to get them. They come with a hud with 4 different shoe textures, and 3 different metal textures. You’ll be excited to hear, that there is a second version of these heels available, with another 4 different textures for the noname group, which is also free to join.

So there you have it, yet another pink look from me. What can I say, I love pink, and I love it even more when it’s free ;) . So, I hope you all have, or had a wonderful New Years, and I will see you all again next year! LOL.

One Last Hunt…

Hello one last 2014 time, my dears! I hope the end of this year and the beginning of 2015 find you all happy and healthy. Now, I know most people spend new year’s eve partying but I prefer a little Hunt action. Let’s take a quick look at Nevermore Hunt’s Winter Solstice hunt.

solstice1_001

First is … a Sweater dress! Tiffany Designs has put out this soft beige sweater tunic for us with lovely cozy details.

solstice3_001

Baby Monkey has given us even more sweater-y goodness in a gorgeous aborigine purple. The prize includes the tights and the boots and not one but two sweaters: the longer EvaMay and the shorter Marah. Ya gotta love two for one!

solstice2_001

And a quick word about the last two poses. These are freebie gifts for everyone at Icons of Style main store. Just look around the walls for the giveaways. The second picture is the ‘Magic Spheres’ pose which comes with a plethora of soap bubble- like globes to rez. The third picture’s pose is from the IOS pack “Summer Girl” which you can find both on the market place and at the store.

The Winter Solstice Hunt runs until the 21st of January so it’s the perfect way to start your SL New Year off right!
