Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tweed and Scott Randolph

Filling up my cart…

It’s the first day of the Springtacious Cart Wash Sale and I was super excited to start filling up my own cart of goodies! I stopped by and I was quickly drawn to the Roped Passion’s display where I picked up an outfit that I fell in love with. For just 10L per piece, it was worth every penny!

Pictured above:

You see me wearing the Kuleana Tweed Top and Slacks by Roped Passion’s in the picture above. They each come separate for just 10L each and each are available in purple, brown, or black (pictured) for a bit of mix and match if you like. Your tiny 10L sum gets you all the standard sizes, a quality alpha layer, plus all the major mesh body sizes as well.

Also on the cart… SHOES!

So the shoes on the Roped Passion’s cart are actually for men. They are made to fit classic, Adam, Signature, Mesh Project, and Slink men’s feet. I found however that by hiding my Maitreya feet and adjusting the shoes a little (they are unrigged mesh), they matched my Kuleana outfit fantastically, and fit my avatar just fine. I kind of left them a touch big, but that’s because I didn’t really edit them down as much as I could (or probably should) have. If you make a copy of these (for back up) and use the edit feature to size them down, I’m sure you can get a perfect fit.

Join Me at the Pub

I'm not Irish But Join me at the Pub_001

Join me at the pub.

I’m not Irish, but join me at the pub anyway. And before you come, be sure to stop by Roped Passions and hunt around for the twisty cube as part of the Twisted Hunt. Now… this is one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s always worth it and the gifts are free. At Roped Passions there is a main gift for women and a main gift for men and a couple of side gifts as well to make it worth your while.

I’m showing off the Inara Suspender outfit that is the free gift from the Roped Passions main-store as their main gift contribution for the ladies to the Twisted Hunt. You’ll get both the outfit and the shoes. The shoes fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

Outfit Sizes:

  • Regular mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Finishing touches.

To go with my green suspenders, I stopped by the Oceane main-store and picked up their group gift. They have out a beautiful lipstick gift right now that you won’t want to pass up. The group is currently free to join and so the gift is free to pick up. You’ll get 6 colors in system layers as well as an Omega applier and it worked beautifully with my Catwa head.

Don’t miss out!

I also stopped by Adoness where I was able to get some free hair. The freebies are just busting at the seams today! This cute cropped style comes in three colors and all you need to do is wear your FabFree group tag (the group is free to join as always) and Adoness is giving away this cute hairstyle to FabFree members for free as a perk! Pick it up to finish off your look! It comes in carrot, rosy (shown), and sunny.

Sunday Casual

Sunday Bridges

It’s casual Sunday for me… and though this outfit I picked up as the latest group gift from Tiffany Designs is hardly ordinary, it’s just dressy enough to be called business casual. It includes a pair of slacks and a sweater with a geometric design on it, both in all the standard mesh sizes. You’ll also get a pair of shoes for system feet, though I opted to wear my own in the picture above.

The Tiffany’s group is 100L to join, but after joining you’ll have access to this gift as well as four other past group gifts for men that are still out. You can see two that were previously blogged [Here] and [Here]. So you definitely get your money’s worth. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but that is immediately refunded to you.

Have a great Sunday afternoon!

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know? ๐Ÿ™‚

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!

Morning Java

Morning Java

Paisley Daisy is one of my favorite places to pick up the monthly VIP group gift. And June’s gift is just gorgeous. I stopped by this morning and nabbed this two piece pants suit in red (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) with its flowing flexi side sash and thought that with a good set of heels and some bangle bracelets, I would be ready to take on the world with a great cup of Java… which is how I ended up at the latest art installation Sim — Entropy III — which is… you guessed it… the inside of a giant coffee cup! Well worth visiting some Second Life morning, if I don’t say so myself!

My pretty bangle bracelets by Paddling Melody are a fabulous FREE find on the marketplace, and what I really love best about these is the versatility. When you open the box you’ll find that you can wear each single bracelet separately, or the whole kit and caboodle as one set. The bracelets are just set to wear on the right arm… so if you want to wear them on both arms, as I have in the photo above, you’ll want to make a copy of the set and “attach to” your avatar’s left forearm and edit into place, and voila!

My shoes really are worth mentioning… even if they are over our 75L price tag limit. I had stopped by the Arcade Gacha event to take a look around for new hair and fell in love with these amazing heels by Azoury. They are 100L per spin, but each spin gets you a set of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, or TMP feet. Azoury are unique and high quality shoes, so if you can spare the Linden to give this machine a spin, you might want to give it a go.

Morning Java 1

My last stop was at the Clawtooth Gacha at the Arcade Gacha, where I picked up my new pretty hairstyle. There are two styles in the machine… the one I am showing you in the picture above called Zosia which is a shorter style. There was also a longer style called Jolene in the gacha machine. Both are really beautiful on, and at only 75L per spin, these are a really good deal.
