Waiting for a Response

Dear Spring,

Hey there. I’ve written to you before I know, but you still haven’t answered… I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I just wanted to let you know that I really miss you.  I miss your warm breezes, your blossoming trees, and your sunny days.  Winter is kinda overstaying its welcome here, and you know the saying – a visitor is like fish, after three months it stinks (isn’t that after three days? Anyway…whatever).  I’m just writing because I’d really like you to come back, and bring all your charming attributes with you.  Please?  Pretty please?

In Anticipation…

Since Spring is still hiding in my part of the world, I’m just going to dress up like it’s Spring and pretend that it’s warm.  I picked up a bunch of fun things at The Project Se7en event – It’s their anniversary, so in order to celebrate they’ve got lots of fun gifts at each booth.  To start things off, I got this cute pink romper by Sys.  I like how it looks all sweet and knitted.  Perfect for cavorting in meadows, I think.  I added these stockings by Ambrosia for a little innocent look, (can we really classify thigh high stockings as innocent…I dunno…but just roll with me) making this look even more fun.  The stockings come with appliers for Maitreya bodies.  Finally, my pose and the flower in my hair are a gift from Belle Poses.  I love the carefree daisy look!  You can grab all these free gifts (and many more) at The Project Se7en by joining the group for free, and taking a walk about and clicking on all the balloon-festooned boxes.  The Project Se7en is open until April 30th.  Have fun!

Romper Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Freya
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass

Hey Spring, are you going to answer my letter or not?!

Love Me Lingerie_001

Drama!

Drama, drama, drama! That’s what these amazing backdrops from Kraftwork make me think of! I got them as a group gift by stopping by the store. There are currently two set out and each has a hud to change it to three different colors. One includes this chair and a posing stand! They even have the lights that filter through.

These are great if you are a second life photographer or just want to snap some photos. The Kraftwork group is a mere 25L to join and you can pick up these great backdrops yourself!

A little love…

I have a little love left over from February! I stopped by Elegance Boutique and discovered that they had out a lovely lingerie set for free with your free group join. It’s two pieces with the undies and the top and has cute details like the heart pasties. It comes in several mesh body sizes. I’m showing off the Maitreya size.

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

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

Enchantress

Enchantress

Sometimes when the mood strikes, I become a little bit…witchy.  I was inspired by some gifts I picked up at the Hashtag Black on Black Event to become an Enchantress of the snow!  I dunno guys… you can be anything in SL, right?

White on White

There are quite a few gifts out at the Hashtag event, some for free, some for a small fee.  I picked up the Amelia dress at the TRS designs booth, and immediately liked the damask patterning.  It also made me think of freshly fallen snow, all crisp and white! The Amelia dress comes in sizes from XXS to L, and costs a measly 1L, so go grab it!

Enchanting Pose

Another gift I found at the Hashtag event was a free pose by Sam Poses that made me think of someone calling forth the snow.  Very fancy.  There are three poses in this gift, and I noted afterwards that it came with skulls you can hold in your hands if you so desire.  Clearly I needed no skulls for my snowy moment!

The Hashtag Black on Black event is open until November 30th so you’d better hurry up to grab this enchanting look!

Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st

By the Sea

By the Sea_003

Sometimes I prefer to browse the Marketplace for goodies when I’m in that “stay at home” mood. I found a couple of nice Marketplace gifties that are sure to brighten your day. Once I was ready to explore, I finished off with a group gift from one of my favorite Steampunk stores!

The perfect outfit

In doing a little Marketplace hunting I ran across this ZHO outfit by Petry Shop. It includes a shirt and skirt as separate pieces with nice detailing and great geometric textures! For only 20L, I snapped it up and didn’t have to leave my linden home. 🙂

Outfit sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Strike a pose

I also picked up a gift pose from a little Marketplace store called Naomi Shop. This pose, called Naomi Gift Pose, is perfect for photography, and is just 10 little linden. If you take pictures in Second Life, you’ll want to add it to your inventory!

My pretty seahorse necklace is a free group gift by Pixel Box. You join the Pixel Box group free, don your new group tag, and pick up this pretty necklace. It includes a texture change hud, which I’ve included a picture of below so you can see the variety of choices you have!

As an extra special touch, the necklace is mesh body sized, and includes sizes to fit the following mesh body types: TMP, eBody, Maitreya, Eve (Slim & Pulpy), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus), Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Tonic.

RUFFLES!

Ruffles_001

I think Friday is my new lucky day! I hopped onto SL this morning and my inbox was full of notices of all kinds of new group gifts and a 50 Linden Friday special that I knew I had to have! I was so excited to put this look together for you that I could hardly wait to post it!

New pants!

Pure Poison usually puts out shoes as their group gifts, but this time around they set out a free gorgeous pair of black ruffle front shorts! As always, the group is free to join. I fell in love with these at first sight and actually made the rest of my outfit around this signature piece! When you open your gift package, you’ll find that the Haley shorts come in the following sizes:

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

Some browsing…

I did some browsing for the perfect shirt to go with my new shorts, and was in luck when I came across this beautiful Summer Color ruffled top by Toxic Bish. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. I am showing it off in black in the picture above, but it comes with a texture hud that includes 11 colors and sizes to fit all the popular mesh body types.

Colors you get with this top:

  • White
  • Mauve
  • Brown
  • Hot Pink
  • Salmon
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Mint
  • Black (shown)

50 Linden Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay! The start of the weekend and special shopping deals! I stopped by Exile and picked up this beautiful hairstyle called “Run the World” in a pack of naturals (they also have out a separate pack of pastels for 50L too). It’s really pretty and I love the bangs! It’s a great and versatile hairstyle, perfect for many occasions.

Strike a pose!

I noticed oOo Studio Poses on my 50 Linden Friday list and decided to stop by there for a look. While I didn’t end up using the 50L pose for my picture today, I discovered that there were two free to all gifts sitting on the counter. You can buy the “My Life” pose used in this picture for just 0L, no group needed. It’s great for those of you into Second Life photography. The second pose out on the counter was a reclining pose, and was just as nice!
