This Pup Has Cast a Spell On Me

puppy

Hello Fabulouses!  There’s nothing like the companionship of a canine……always willing to lend a listening ear…..that tail wagging happily when you walk through the door.  I’m so thankful for my puppy pals!  Every day, they offer unconditional love, and teach me to live in the moment.

Time for a Little Side Trip

Yesterday, when I saw a group notice pop up about the new Spring Blue dress at Arcane Spellcaster, Ripley and I lived in the moment, and chose to detour over to the shop to pick up the lovely, free frock.  Featuring an ice blue top layer, and a deep, sky-blue skirt panel, this little number is packed with visual details such as the patterned, wrapped texture of the bodice panel which ends in a beaded fringe dangling down.  Its asymmetrical hemline, and slender shoulder straps emphasize your figure. In order to add Spring Blue to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group, which will set you back 250L, but there are multiple gifts available, including a special 1500 member Amosa Club structure, so you get a lot of return on your investment.

As the sun goes down
Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique Hourglass

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.

The Butterfly & The Python

The Butterfly & The Python

My alt-er ego Loki and I hit the Cart Wash Sale this morning… and what we found is smokin’ hot! I call it the Butterfly and the Python… and I think all we need is some Godfather music in the background to give us that proper old style Hollywood movie feel!

I picked up the 50L Mix and Match Formal Blue dress set from the Vicarious Youth Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. You get four skirts and four blouses for your 50L… that’s just a touch over 6L per piece! and they are mix and match and gorgeous! I had a fatpack of R.icielli – LEXIE High Heels in my inventory and discovered that there was a blue pair and donned those. Perfect match! When I double checked the marketplace, I was pleased to find that this fatpack is still available for the low price of 97L. Since there are 21 pairs of shoes in this fatpack, this makes each pair of shoes less than 5L each, and well worth your Linden!

Loki picked up the Python Jacket and shirt combo from the Dark Water Designs Cart for only 50L. This jacket comes in standard mesh sizes as well as two fitmesh sizes with an alpha layer for a perfect fit. The advertisement shows it with jeans, but Loki paired it with leather pants and mesh gloves, and it gave it a sharp, dressy look that is super sexy.

The Butterfly & The Python 2

I wanted to give you a close up of the Python jacket and shirt combo… which is one-piece for easy fitting and wear. The rivet buttons, zipper, and texture are amazing. Loki also tossed on a men’s group gift which you can pick up from Chop Zuey still if you stop by the main-store and wear your Chop Zuey group tag… the Dragon Flight Necklace for men. It is FREE with your group membership. Membership is 350L, but the frequent and quality gifts make it worthwhile, and there is also a men’s bracelet out at the moment for members.

The Butterfly & The Python 3

Have you joined the Third Life Group yet and gotten any of the great goodies? It is FREE to join and I stopped by Ecco Jewelry this morning where I found that the creator is offering these beautiful Butterfly Mosaic Earrings FREE to Third Life Group Members. The gift includes a hud for three metal colors: gold, silver, and bronze, making this a generous and well detailed FREE gift indeed.

VYTAMixMatchFormalsBlue (50L)

Here is a copy of the Vicarious Youth advertisement for the mix and match formal in blue… I wanted to be able to show you the different skirt and top options available for your 50L. For that small amount of Linden, you really are getting a nice variety of options on a quality item that allows for versatility of styling.

I have found myself in a bit of a thoughtful and musing mood today.

The group is FREE to join and with gifts changing ever Sunday it is a fab way to enjoy the fantasy side of SL.

I’ve gotten my hem wet wandering so close to the edge of the water so I am off to ring it out.

Bronze Dragon

Bronze Dragon

Just a dragon out for a stroll.

When Lumae offered up this fantasy Eirtae – Solaris skin as a FREE group gift I wasted no time heading over there. The group is FREE to join.

I love a good fantasy skin. I saw all sorts of possibilities and had alot of fun putting a look together. Lumae is in the process of redoing her skin lines and this was a little way for her to give a generous sneak peak of whats to come. Lumae skins are both quality and all inclusive.  This skin comes with so many things I am sure to miss something but i’ll try and give a good run down. System skins with/without cleavage and brows. I opted for a no brow look. Also appliers for most everything, body (Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega), slink hands & feet, mesh heads, mouths, ears, nail polish, TMP and even AMD baby bump. There are convenient and easy to use huds for the appliers.

I found my outfit on Marketplace and it came in at 75L. The metal parts have a color change hud. I will cation I did have to do a fair amount of editing to make this outfit fit well. Its says no mod but you can edit all the pieces. Remember if you are gonna edit always make a copy so you always have the original. Not all places have a redelivery system.

Your turn to let your imagination run wild with this fantasy skin!

You can be a dragon too:

Skin: Lumae – Eirtae – Solaris FREE group gift with FREE group join

Eyes: Ikon – Immortal – sage

Purely Pretty

Purely Pretty 1

The holiday rush is upon me, but I decided to take a moment today to reflect, enjoy some time with coffee by the fire, and read a good book. For me that meant a favorite pair of jeans and letting my hair down.

If you haven’t stopped by the Cart Wash sale yet, now is the time to do so. Many designers are participating, and nothing is over 10L. I picked up this fabulous pair of Bia jeans by Tiffany Designs for just 10L. They come in traditional system layers, but I was thrilled to see that my mere 10L expenditure also got me layers for mesh bodies (Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza).

The Tiffany Cart also had a beautiful FREE holiday gift set out for shoppers, be sure to stop by to pick that up!

Purely Pretty 2

If you will remember, I recently showed you one of two MINA Hair VIP group gifts HERE. I donned the other one in these pictures. This style called Hanne 02 is simply lovely for a relaxing day away from the holiday hustle and bustle. It is yours FREE with your group tag active. If you are not currently in the group, it will cost you 200L to join, but remember, you get 2 gifts monthly (full fat packs) so that easily makes the fee worth it.

To finish off my look, I checked out the growing number of gifties at the Chop Zuey advent calendar. This gift is from the group required side for day 1 and is called The Violet Flame of Purity. It is FREE with your group tag (the group is 350L to join) but the gifts are going to be generous. That small fee is going to get you 12 days of gifts for the advent alone – both men’s and women’s plus gifts through out the coming new year. This set included not only the color change necklace and bracelet shown in the pictures above, but also a pair of earrings that I am not showing. Well worth the fee to join the group!

Happy Free Hair Day Gentlemen!

Free Hair Post 1

Happy Free Hair Day Gentlemen! Hopefully, by this time next year this will be a national holiday, like Groundhog Day or Bring Your Weevil to Work Day. Given the task to scour the grid and round up some free men’s hairstyles, I am happy to present to you the results of my epic quest.

  • A – Damselfly – Ashton w/20 color hud (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • B – Amacci – Leon in Cinnamon (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • C – Colors – Free gifts in boxes outside the store, four hairstyles available  (FREE Gifts)

  • G – Ink – UROS in Black (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • H – Argrace – Minato (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)
  • I – Emo-tions – Aidan in Brown w/ 4 color hud in 2 variations (FREE Group Gift/FREE Group)

That about wraps it up for this post, but before I go, let me tell you about two more great stops that guys should make in their ongoing search for men’s hair. One fine resource for men’s hairstyles is Alli & Ali. They have free group gifts and frequently take part in gridwide hunts. If you are looking for free hair, they are definitely worth a visit. Lastly, while they are not offering any free male hair, Truth is an excellent hair store and, as of this writing, their male hair is only 50L. For that price, they are a bargain. That’s all for me, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 2

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 3

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 4

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!
