She’s a Little Runaway

Runaway_002

“No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head”

“Oh, she’s a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
All those things he couldn’t say
Ooh, she’s a little runaway”

I captured this picture and thought… now this is the outfit I would like to runaway in! And who knows, maybe you would like to runaway in it too! Of course it would be great for a date night or just casual wear, but if not… runaway, runaway!

Autumn Gift

It’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here! Paisley Daisy put out their autumn group gift to celebrate. The group join fee is just 50L and the creator puts out a monthly gift to make it worth joining. I love this sweet chocolate dress that is this month’s gift! It comes in several sizes to fit mesh bodies, including regular fitmesh sizes XS – XL, plus Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza sizes.

New Hair!

Like clockwork, KoKoLoReS has set out their monthly group gift, proving once again that their join fee is worth it. This month is the pretty gift hair called “Jin” which I am wearing in the picture above. It includes a hud of natural colors as well. It’s a flirty style and would work well for casual days and flirty nights, and it fit my catwa head without any adjusting.

Well I’m off! I still feel like running away for the day! Who knows what adventures I will get into… but I can’t wait to find out! Happy shopping and gift hunting!

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

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.

Give Me Spring

Give Me Summer

Paisley Daisy has their April group gift out… and it is a stunning floral dress that just makes me want to sing! This pretty gown is mesh in all the standard sizes, but also includes a pretty flexi skirt overlay for some added flair and ‘glitter’. It adds a lovely touch. The gift is FREE with your group tag. The group membership is a one time fee of 100L but Paisley Daisy offers monthly group gifts to offset the cost and this one gown alone is worth your fee.

Give Me Summer 2

I stopped by ECCO to see what was new. There are several lovely new gifts at this quality jewelry store. I picked up the SL Free & Offers Gift of the LuLu Earrings, as they matched my new gown just perfectly. These earrings are FREE with your FREE SL Free & Offers group tag and come in three metal choices (gold, silver, and black), making this a generous and versatile FREE gift.

Enjoy your Friday!

Trillion Dollar Daisy

Generosity is the spirit of the season, and creators in second life are no exception. Gifts simply abound this month and now is your chance to stock up on beautiful items for your wardrobe.

Trillion Dollar Look 1

I was doing a little bit of grid wandering, and I came across two items you won’t want to miss out to help you chase away any winter evening chills.

First, if you stop by Paisley Daisy, be sure sure to join the group (if you are not already in it) and pick up the latest FREE group gift, which is this elegant coat called Vintage Jackie 0 Style Dress/Coat. It is a coat or dress depending on how you wear it, though I paired it with some leg warmers for a look that suited my style. The coat comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as the fitted mesh size which I am wearing — because that is the size that accommodated my fuller avatar figure without forcing me to move down my sliders — yay!

The Paisley Daisy group is 100L to join, but there are quite a few past group gifts out to nab, with monthly group gifts out to follow, making this small group join fee well worth the lindens.

Trillion Dollar Look 2

I hadn’t stopped by Lazuri in a while to see if there was anything new, so I decided to take a stroll through the stores spacious offerings of glittering gems and precious pearls just to see what I could find. While there, I saw that they had up a new subscribo by the group gift section and clicked it just for updated news, and lo and behold it sent me FREE gifties!

There were quite a few items in the gift box, but my absolute favorite was this Trillion Ring which is not only stunning in style and contrast, but is color change as well for versatility. The options include 4 metal colors and 11 gem colors. I am showing it off in silver and onyx in the picture above.

Be sure to hurry to pick these items up. While the Paisley Daisy coat is a gift for the month of December, the Lazuri gift is subscribo, so it may not last long. Don’t wait and miss out!

More July 4th Fabness

I know this post is a day late for Independence Day but the celebration does carry over to the weekend. YAY!!! It’s a long weekend for the hard-working Americans out there. I found more Fabness to celebrate the 4th of July. I had a lot of fun putting these together and finding different spots to take these photos.

I got this teeny red, white, and blue bikini at ViVi and it was a free gift for all. It was a great grab! Snowpaws had this really cute American Flag headband for sale ($100). I added these truly fab heels from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I thought the heels were well worth the price. This pic was taken at Ihla Brasil Rio. I loved the look of the surf and rocks right off the beach.

My dress is fitted mesh from Paisley Daisy and was so excited to find this cute dress for only $10L at a limited Time Only sale. My shoes are the same ones pictured above from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I decided to change my hair to my favorite style, Sonja, from Alli&Ali. That was a very welcome MM surprise. The cute hand-held flag was a gift from [LNS Designs].
