My Irish Wish

parisstpat2f

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
~Irish Blessing

Faith and Begorrah, why it’s Saint Patrick’s Day! And Paris Metro is offering this lovely Irish Wish dress and hat for free so you won’t be caught not wearin’ o’ the green! I’m sure you don’t want to get pinched, do you, even virtually? :lol: You’ll find the dress on the desk on the 3rd floor.

[Mock Cosmetics] sent this skin out to group members a couple weeks ago; check your notices, but hurry, as they vanish after 14 days! Katherine comes with light and dark brows, 3 brow shapes, a hairbase, delasher, “mock and mole,” and Lolas skin appliers. The [mock] group is 250L to join, but the gifts are plentiful – in fact, the notices are bursting with them! My jewelry is the March group gift from Lazuri (free to join), and includes the necklace, earrings, and bracelet. You get to choose from several different metals, gems, and pearls, so if green isn’t your color, there are lots more from which to choose.

My Irish Wish for you is that you are having a blessed and safe Saint Patrick’s Day today. Be careful with the green beer, folks. ;-)

Champagne et Lumiere From Paris

pm1f

Just in time for those New Year’s Eve parties, Paris Metro is offering some lovely gift gowns. This gorgeous gold gown, called Lumiere de ma Vie (that’s “light of my life,” in English), is a Christmas gift that includes a mesh ruffled top, flowing system skirt, and embellished gloves. You can find it – along with a handsome, men’s tweed suit – next to the outdoor stage in front of the art gallery.

pm3f

This one, called Goddess Jewels Champagne, is a New Year’s gift. I love the wide, beaded belt, and the way it gracefully falls from one shoulder. To find this dress, you’ll need to go into the store and locate the desk near the window. It’s not hard to find, I promise!

pm2f

The back is a bit of a surprise with an attractive, asymmetrical cut. Just low enough to add a little drama! :-)

pm4f

If you’re in the mood for something a bit less formal, you can also pick up this Little Satin Cocktail dress in copper from the desk. The skirt comes in 7 different mesh sizes; the rest of the parts are not mesh. This dress also has a sexy, low cut in the back, but you’ll need to go try it on to see for yourself. ;-) My long, luscious nails are by Izzie’s for Collabor88. If you want them, you’ll need to hurry on over, since the next round will be starting in just a few days!

pm6f

My earrings are a free gift from JCNY on the Marketplace. They come with a selection of 10 different metals and a 5-level, multi-gem changing script. I was dull and selected all diamonds (a girl’s best friend!), but there are 10 gems to choose from so you can have fun mixing and matching. My necklace is a New Year’s gift from Virtual Impressions. I apologize for the picture – I had a really difficult time getting a photo of the necklace because of the translucent nature of the metal. But I promise that it says “Happy New Year,” surrounded by three stars. :-)

We Could Use More Peace On Earth

Snapshot_003

Before I begin my usual spiel , I just wanted to express my deep personal condolences and warm virtual hugs to anyone touched by today’s very sad tragedy in Connecticut.  I have little ones (well semi-little, mostly bigger than me…) myself and I cannot even begin to imagine the trauma and pain involved.

The fifth annual Peace on Earth Hunt is proving to be a fantastic hunt filled with plenty of absolutely free prizes! The hunt icon to seek is a globe and this hunt runs until January 6th.  Paris Metro‘s Peace On Earth Hunt prize this year is the stunning Let it Snow Gown in a deep shade of emerald green.  In the photo below, I have taken off the long satin cape to showcase the Beloved Jewelry Set that includes the Chantelle Earrings and Necklace in both Emerald and Ruby jewels.  This is also a POEH5 gift!
Snapshot_004

The skin I am in today that features glittered eyes and luscious mauve lips is Glo – Winter Glitter by Dulce Secrets.  This skin is available in several skin tones with cleavage options as Dulce Secret’s POEH5 gift.

Baby It’s Cold Outside!

PMHHPMBrrrr.. Winter has arrived in many of the sims across the grid, and we’ll be needing some things to keep us warm!  I picked up a few of the Pimp My Hunters Hunt prizes today and found that Paris Metro has an entire cozy, warm outfit for us as their hunt gift that includes the cargo pants, cable knit sweater, scarf and hat!  Locate the hidden blue cap at the Paris Metro Mainstore and you’ll be given this outfit and also a mens version for free!

The mittens I am wearing are colour change and are a free gift from Exposeur that you can find on marketplace, and it comes with a few poses!

PMHHEM

Check out these gorgeous peepers!  The Hunting Eyes can be found at English Muffin in a pack of several colours for free once you locate the Pimp My Hunter Hunt icon (which is a pink or blue cap).

Tres Beau In Paris Metro

Snapshot_00155FabFree reader, and first-rate freebie finder extrordinaire Arabella Luminos sent me a notecard to let me know that Paris Metro Couture had some unbelievable gifts at their mainstore.  I went down there to check it out this morning and it turns out they had 5 gifts that I could see including one hidden at the Flawless Harvest Sale & Hunt.  Of course by the time I got all of my pictures done lol, the first two gifts were no longer available :(  Sorry, but the other three still are!

Shown above is the Artist Series JudyLynn Gown, and in the photo below, the Artist Series Toy Soldier Gown.  You won’t be able to take advantage of these gorgeous gifts, but it’s a heads up to keep an eye out for gifts just outside the Art Gallery, as they do pop up from time to time.  I already had the photos done, so I figured I may as well show them anyways lol.

Snapshot_00533

The Petale jewelry set shown with the gowns is a free Runway Perfect Hunt prize from Tres Beau.  It includes the choker, earrings, two bracelets and also a ring.  This hunt ends today, so you’ll need to be quick if you want to snag these!

Shown below you will see the Scribble Gown in Wheat.  You can find this wonderful gift on the third floor sitting on top of the desk.

Snapshot_001443
The Carnation Salsa Gown in Sapphire Blue comes with the hat and is a free Flawless Harvest Hunt gift that is hidden in a pumpkin on the Paris Metro Cart on the Flawless Sim until November 7th.
Snapshot_003fdfWhile you are at the mainstore, make sure you give the subscribomatic a good slap because when your subscription has been activated, you are sent the incredible Elemental Sky Sunset Gown.

Thanks for the heads up Arabella!!

Mooncake Hunt @ Virtual Asia

“Every year on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when the moon is at its maximum brightness for the entire year, the Chinese celebrate “zhong qiu jie.” Children are told the story of the moon fairy living in a crystal palace, who comes out to dance on the moon’s shadowed surface. The legend surrounding the “lady living in the moon” dates back to ancient times.”

At the Virtual Asia City, running until 15th October, you can take part in The Mooncake Hunt. Searching for these delicious cakes around the city by using the SLURLS and hints below you will find some really amazing items.
