Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers 🙂

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Bluebell

Happy Monday, FabFree!

Bluebell

I guess I could have called this post Blue Monday or Monday blues… but in a good way! My “blues” are curtesy of the Nerdy Girl Cart at the Bi Annual Wash cart Sale today. My gorgeous blue dress is the “Beach Dress” in Blue Ocean. This cute dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The Beach Dress comes in three ‘wave’ colors, a cloud white, denim and a super cute nautical print. All for just 10L each!  Even my cute “Flower Sandals” are from the Nerdy Girl Cart. The sandals come in five colors ( each sold separately) and with a rigged version for SLink flat feet and an unrigged version as well.

I’ve even got a great new blue hairstyle today from Analog Dog. This is ‘Kanpai’ and not only does it come in blue… it comes in pink and auburn and blonde and… well, every color Analog Dog makes! Analog Dog has set out the full free fatpack of Kanpai as part of the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebration at Hairology.  There’s a ton of gorgeous free hairstyles to be had at Hairology this round as well as deep discounts on some of the best styles for the best designers! Just look for the layer cake at many of the booths and have a slice.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash runs until July 6th while Hairology runs until June 30th so don’t delay.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

Hey Fabulous people!

Astrid’s been on vacation this week… BUT… I decided to sneak in with a post and a few items for all the men out there. Because everyone needs a good towel in this summer heat.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

If you aren’t a member of Legal Insanity, the group is really worth joining. It’s going to set you back a one time fee of 99L, but there is an entire wall of past group gifts, including this rigged mesh men’s towel (there’s a ladies version on the wall too) that you can pick up. Each gift will cost you just 1 little Linden after paying your group fee and they are high quality gifts. The current group gift that is on the counter is FREE.

I also stopped by Nerdy Girl, which has recently moved to a new location. With all this warm weather, I was thinking cool… or Nerdy. See it how you will. And the current group gift at Nerdy Girl fit the bill. There are a set of matching men’s and women’s lingerie there (yes ladies… you get the goods at the shop too!) in either this For the Alliance! which I’m showing you in the picture above… OR a For the Horde! set if you prefer that. You can show your allegiance to Nerd-dom either way 😉

The boxers come in system layers as well as omega appliers for mesh bodies, making them a really great group gift. They are FREE with your one time fee of 25L.

So Berry Sweet

So Berry Sweet

As a child, one of my very favorite things was my Strawberry Shortcake doll collection! But of course, Strawberry Shortcake herself was the best! So when I saw that Nerdy Girl was giving this Berry Sweet 1L pajama gift as part of the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt, I knew I had to have it!

This sweet gift is yours too for just 1L and a little bit of hunting time at the main-store. It’s mesh in all the standard sizes, and the cute print and little red tie at the waist is just perfect. Sweet dreams!

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Good evening lovelies! I think I have put together the girliest outfit I could imagine, complete with bows, flower prints, ruffles and lace. Would you believe, you can have all this girly-goodness for under L$40! Yes, really.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Let me start with my skirt, as I truly believe, especially from the backside, this is the star of my show…or should I say the bow of my show. *grins for a minute* My fabulous Gift Wrap skirt is from Promagic, and you can find this colour, and several others, on the Marketplace, for only L$10 each. It is mesh, comes in the standard sizes, and come on…just look at that bow! Love it.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Needing something as equally pretty for my top, I kept searching on the Marketplace and stumbled across The Sea Hole Outlet! Do you remember The Sea Hole store, I still have so many items from that store, and was bummed when it closed. Now, I don’t know if I had just missed seeing items from there on the Marketplace all these years, or if they were just more recently added, but you can find so many of those wonderful pre-mesh clothing pieces, and the prices are unbelievable! I picked up the Odette Bustier in the Rosey Real print, HERE, for only L$8. It is clothing layers only, sorry mesh body wearers, but for those of us still using system bodies, there is nothing wrong with a great quality, clothing layer item.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

If you can’t tell, my inspiration for picking the specific colours I did for my skirt and top, came from these to-die-for shoes. Yup, they were the starting point for my whole outfit. My Lari heels are from a new-to-me store called BOOB-LiSH, and are actually a L$10 steal at The Dark Side event. They are meant for SLink high feet, and honestly, my picture does not do them justice, they are worth way more than the L$10 asked for. Let me warn you, I was late in heading over to this event, so you only have 1 day left to get over there, as this event ends tomorrow (Saturday, April 30th). It’s well worth the rushed trip though, as almost every store participating has a L$10 item out, and believe me, if there was more time, I’d show you a lot more.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

I am managing to show off one other L$10 deal from The Dark Side. This time, it’s from *PB* Nails, and it is my Step Into The Light Mani and Pedi. I’ve included a shot of the ad to show off all the sweet colours you have to choose from for this SLink nail applier hud. They are perfect for Spring/Summer!

The one last item I wanted to point out, is my hair. If my hair in RL was just a touch longer, it could look just like the cute hair I have on here in SL. The Beusy June Gift is a complete fatpack of a rigged mesh hair, and you can find this on the Marketplace for only L$1. Seriously.

So, if you’ve been adding it up, my totally girly outfit is a grand total of L$39, and I think that is a heck of a deal. Even better, I did all the hard work of putting it together for you! LOL. Alrighty, I must be off, I think it’s bedtime. I am being bombarded by family from out-of-town all day tomorrow, so I am really going to need to get all the sleep I can. If I don’t manage to make it back before the weekend is over, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and I will be back soon. Until next time, TTFN!

I Like it Sweet and Spicy

Hello everyone, and happy happy Sunday! I know, It  seems like forever since I last posted, but hopefully, the gifts I am showing you all today will make up for that! Remember my last post about the Spring Fair hunt going on over at the German Land Holding Estate? Well, I’ve got 4 more gifts to show you all, and I think you will like them.

First, let me refresh your memory about this hunt. Head over to the German Land Holding Estate, and grab your free Easter egg basket from one of the many baskets placed around the Spring Fair. Add it to your arm, and start walking around and grab free eggs. It’s as easy as that.

I like it Sweet and Spicy

My sweet and spicy look starts with this fairly flirty dress, which is the gift from {VEE}’s. The Maylie dress is mesh, and comes in standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Bellezza and SLink sized versions. It also comes with a texture change hud that gives you 3 lovely colours to choose from (I forgot to take pictures of the aqua and pale pink choices, DOH!!) Now, when I opened my gift, there were a few sizes missing for me, including my usually worn M, but once I contacted the designer, she very quickly sent me the missing sizes! Love great customer service. I’ve included a shot of the back, so you can see how pretty it is, I love the straps.

I like it Sweet and Spicy

Sticking with the straps motif, and adding the spicy to my sweet and spicy look, are my spiky foot straps from Living Vintage Couture. They are rigged mesh, and while I am wearing them with my SLink high feet, they may be able to be worn with other mesh high feet, as they aren’t a super tight fit. See my pretty toenails? The gift from Perfect Seduction is a nail hud with these 2 lovely polish choices. You get a SLink hud, and an Omega hud, so almost everyone should be happy :). My last addition, brings me back to the sweet. The lily pearl earrings I have on are from DAMIANII, and I think they were the perfect final touch. Hard to believe all these goodies are free, with just a little hunting needed.

The Spring Fair, and corresponding hunt, run until the end of April, so if you didn’t head over there after my last post, you still have plenty of time to get your egg hunt on.

Alright all you lovely readers, I am off for now, but I heard tell of a limited time goodie that I wanted to show off, so I will be back soon! Until then, TTFN.

I’m walking on sunshine!

Happy Saturday everyone! How was your week? Mine was mostly kinda gloomy. So what better way to fix a gloomy RL, than finding a nice sunny spot in SL! Naturally, my search for sunshine, called for me to be dressed sunshine appropriately. And lucky for me, some Womenstuff hunt gifts and a group gift, were exactly what I needed.

sunshine1

Starting with this gorgeous dress I have on! My floral halter dress is from BlackRose, and is a Womenstuff hunt gift. This colorful and super sexy number is mesh, and comes in fitted mesh in the standard sizes, as well as a SLink and Maitreya fitted versions. All you need to do is find that red t-shirt and this baby is yours for free. The hint is : “I m not an antique! I m an antik..” . Oh, and when I said sexy, I meant really sexy…I had to include a shot of the back so you all could really get the full effect 🙂

**Edited to add – The hunt hint I had used has been changed, the new hint is : “I’m tired of carrying all this stuff!” Good Luck!!**

Can you guess what I needed next? Shoes of course! In my hunting travels, I stopped over at G&D The Italian Style to search for their Womenstuff gift, and lo and behold, they had  these brilliant yellow and gold high heels, with versions for  SLink high, TMP and Maitreya feet, as a free group gift. Even better, their group was free to join. This is why I love hunts, it introduces me to stores I am not always familiar with, but sure am happy to have discovered. BTW, the Womenstuff hunt gift they have, super cute, slightly chunky heels. Believe me, I am working on finding an outfit to put together to show them off to you.

I'm walking on sunshine!

My last stop, WoW Skins, gave me that added extra sunshiney touch, in my glowing, bronzed skin. Rumya is their free contribution to the Womenstuff hunt, and as with all their skins, is simply beautiful. You will get a cleavage, and non-cleavage version when you find the t-shirt. Body appliers are available for a reasonable fee in store, or if you are in the WoW Skins group, there are all tones of body appliers included in the current group gift. This is a 2016 version skin, so only the newest appliers will match. The hint for this gift is : “Near the crocodile, the gift is waiting this time to meet you!” .

The Womenstuff hunt runs all month, so you have loads of time, and in case you are interested in seeing the full list, with hints, and store URL’s, here’s the blog link, Womenstuff Hunt Info.

Alrighty my friends. I need to go find a nice lounge chair, and see if I can rustle up a few girly, fruity drinks, with little umbrellas in them. I may as well go full-out in my sunshine dream, right? I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you all again soon. Until next time, TTFN!

Nerdy Nice

Nerdy Girl Nice

It’s Fri-yay! I decided I’m going to spend the day in my pajamas today. I’m not sure about anyone else, but sometimes you just gotta have a pajama day. Maybe I’ll get some baking done, or wrap some presents! There’s always so much to do at this time of year, you might as well be comfortable while doing it. These super cute and comfy pajamas are the current group gift at Nerdy Girl. They come in appliers for Omega, Maitreya, and Slink compatible bodies only. Also included is the cute little mistletoe headband. The pants are probably my favorite part of the set, and there is a second option with the word “Naughty” rather than “Nice” written down the leg. I chose to wear the “Nice” version, but Santa might have something different to say! The Nerdy Girl group is just 5 lindens to join, and you’ll be asked for 1 linden while wearing your group tag to get the gift. Don’t worry, your 1 linden is instantly refunded.

Once I had my adorable new pajamas, I felt I had to have some slippers. With a little searching I found the perfect pair of house slippers from Phunk on the Marketplace. Rudolph is such an iconic Christmas holiday character, these slippers made me smile just seeing their glowing red noses. The slippers come with a male and a female version, and while Slink feet are not required, I had no issue wearing them with my Slink flat feet. Also included is an antler headband (not pictured) for added cuteness. You’ll find these cute slippers from Phunk for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. Nerdy Gift

While I was browsing the Marketplace, I came across this fun gift box with poses from EverGlow. This fun prop is just 1 linden and includes the 3 poses shown above. It would be great for Holiday photos or even sitting out as decoration.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
