The Chair…

Braver than you Believe_001

I stopped by to visit my friend, the one I mention frequently and who’s furniture I envied in my post {HERE}. (I’m pretty sure you can still get that table and screen and decor if you’re a member of the L’Homme group by the way.) And he had out a chair that I had to try out. Then he informs me he got it as a free gift at an event where almost every booth has a free gift out! Of course I demanded a shopping excursion. Was it too much that I asked him to hold my purse? (Good thing I don’t usually carry a purse in Second Life).

The Chair…

So we made our way to “Shop ‘Till You Drop” and I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed at all the displays of wonderful shopping pleasures. I picked up free gifts as my shopping buddy hemmed and hawed (because of course he’d already been there and got all the goods).

But he was patient and I got my much awaited free gift chair by Chic Buildings! It has seven great poses and is low prim too! I’m showing off the pose called “monkey” in the picture above. You don’t even need a group for the free gifts at the event. Just buy the gifts that are out for 0L!

Another POE gift!

Serena showed you a gorgeous free POE Hunt gift from Prism in her post {HERE} but there are two (yes two!) POE Hunt gifts at Prism if you look! The second one is this dress I’m modeling called Sparkles by Journey. You can pick it up as part of the Hunt for free too! It has a sparkly gold turtleneck collar and sexy split sides and includes a color change hud for versatility!

Dress body compatibility included:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

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 🙂

Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Put some jingle bells on…

Let it Snow_001

The White Armory has long been known for turning out beautiful gowns, dresses, and outfits. Recently they rebranded their ladies clothing line to Silvan Moon Designs. On the trail of the POE Hunt, you won’t want to miss their free gift contribution.

Put some jingle bells on.

I swear I heard jingle bells out on the snow as I stood out shivering and watching the sky. Is it too early for Santa to be checking up on us you think? I don’t think so! And I think Santa thought of me early with this free POE Hunt gift from Silvan Moon Designs. The Belladonna dress comes in a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit, and has beautiful details including the ascot scarf at the neck. It is all one piece for easy fitting.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift!

Getting ready…

Winter parties will soon be starting. All those invitations will be going out for the get togethers at different friends’ houses. I knew I needed the perfect dress to spark conversation. I can usually find what I’m looking for at Byrne! Their POE gift was no exception and I fell in love with this combination dress and mesh fur stole.

The dress has side cut outs to make it just a bit risky, while the white fur stole adds a bit of class. And of course since this is a POE Hunt gift, you can pick it up free by going to Byrne and hunting down the globe.

Dress sizes available:

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

Rockberry Gifts & a Curious Kitty

I got an IM from Renee to go and take a peek under the Christmas tree at Rockberry as a little bird told her there could be some surprises in store. And sure enough there were. Five cute little boxes, each one containing a Dollarbie gift.

In one of the boxes you will find a set of cute little sweaters in four colours. The colour I chose to show you was the Rust colour. In another box there is a set of Rockberry Baseball shirts that come in six colours. Here I am wearing the barbie pink colour. Yeah I know right.. me in pink again!

 

 

Another of the gifts is this cute chair and table set, complete with a rug and a mini table top Christmas tree, so even if you have a tiny space you can still put a tree up!

 

And if you have a larger space – this bigger tree is in another of the gift boxes!

There is also a gift box full of wooly socks in the same colours and patterns as the sweaters.

If you love Curious Kitties then they have just set out a new Group Gift and a special new winter themed freebie!

These are the Group Gifts. A pack of two really cute oriental style shirts. One in black and one in red and black. The spinning ball with the adorable kitten on top is the second Group Gift.

This is the Winter Cutie outfit. You get the shoes, legwarmers and the scarf too in the outfit and it really is just so snug and warm looking. You won’t want to wear anything else when you are out in the Christmas snow!

And as a surprise last addition to the post, because I got the notice just before I hit publish.. is this sweet little gypsy style top from Indie Rose which is set out as their new Group Gift. Its so soft and feminine. I love it.

And also upstairs in the Bargain section, there are these cute cropped cashmere cardigans set as a Dollarbie in one of the little purple bags on the table.
