One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!

The Call of Spring

The Call of Spring

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower, 
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths; 
And ’tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes. 

Sorbet Spring

We are coming close to the end of March, and I’m hoping that the above staves will help bring forth the warmth and renewal we all crave.  I’m just sitting in my green bower, listening to the sounds of spring that are all around me.  I found the perfect dress to lead me into sunnier climes!  I found my way to Sorbet, where there are several group gifts to be had.  I paid 25L to join the group and got this lovely dress.  It brings me a thrill of pleasure, just as Spring did to William Wordsworth when he wrote the above poem (though he did get a bit sad about the state of man, but that’s another topic entirely…).  The Robe Plisée Framboise (oooh) comes in sizes XS, S, and M with an Alpha layer.

Details

My necklace today was another fantastic gift I picked up at Pure Poison, who as I mentioned HERE are really a treasure trove of gifts.  Join the group for free to pick up this lovely necklace (and get yourself loads of other stuff too while you’re there!).   Wheeee!
I hope Spring is sneaking up on you too, wherever you are.

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

XoXo

xoxo_001

I decided to stay in bed today. I think I’ll just curl up with the remote and watch cartoons and drink hot cocoa and forget about the world for a while. A couple of days ago I went out with my hunt buddy and we found some pretty things that I thought I’d share with you and they seemed fitting for a day snuggled between the sheets.

XOXO

My sweet kisses shirt is by Sin Original and is part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. You can get it for just 1L and it features kisses on it as well as X’s and O’s on the design. It comes in several sizes to fit your mesh body needs.

Shirt sizes available:

  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A little silver

I also picked up a sweet circle pendant as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt at Florian. This too was just 1L and is yours for a little hunting time to find the little black bag. It is pretty, delicate, and adjustable, and would fit with most outfits, rather casual or dressy. I loved the detailing on this pretty bauble!

All the Sweets

Snapshot_001

I’m still gleefully unpacking gifts from the Womenstuff Hunt. I feel like I’ve made away like a bandit this month will all the goodies! And I’ve put together a look for you with three of the gifts I found that I really like!

All the sweets…

My sweet (and exclusive) dress if from Robot dolly. It’s yours if you stop by their main-store and hunt down that little red t-shirt and buy it for 1L and it’s yours! This cutie comes in lots of mesh sizes to fit your needs.

Mesh sizes included:

  • Classic XXS – L + alpha layer
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Shoes too!

I also stopped by SoHoe Shoes where I grabbed the Kate heels as part of the Womenstuff Hunt, hunting down that little red t-shirt and buying it for 0L and discovered that they matched my cute new mini dress just perfectly. These come in fits for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and are cute as a button in pink and white.

One more stop!

I teleported over to Hot Fuss for just one more stop for the day and was rewarded with their cute free and exclusive gift for the Womenstuff hunt. I love this necklace! It has a sort of mystical boho feel with its lavender eye and silver diamond eyelashes. And for the price of free you can’t beat the deal! Pick this gift up to wear!

Dinner Date

Dinner Out_001

I have a dinner date, and needed something spectacular to impress my friend. I know he won’t leave me waiting long, after all, he helped me hunt down both my necklace and my dress…

Don’t miss out…

… the Women Only Hunt ends December 31st, so you’ll need to hurry to get the last of the beautiful free prizes if you haven’t made all the stops yet. In preparation for my date, I stopped by Secrets and picked up the free Bey Necklace. It comes in two separate pieces and with a color change hud with 9 color choices for the metal. You can even change each part of the necklace separately. Color choices included some unique metal choices such as turquoise, pink, and violet, as well as the traditional black, silver, and gold.

As good as gold…

… is this Selene Black Lace Dress by Glitter. It’s the free group gift dress celebrating 6,000 group members. The Glitter group is free to join so you can pick up this dress for free too. It’s got a sheer bodice and a slightly sheer skirt. So if you’re modest, you might want to wear a pair of panties underneath.

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • Belleza

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂
