Pastel Procrastinator

Pastel Procrastinator

I’m having one of those days, where I get up, plan everything I’m supposed to do, get really ready for it all, and then next thing I know the day is done without much actually having been accomplished.  On days like that I try to remind myself that I’m allowed to relax, and kick back now and then.  Aline, however, has other plans.  She got her hair did, slicked on makeup and started bounding about doing all sorts of creative things.  I dunno why, but she never really seems to need much of a rest… 😉

Best Tressed

I caught up with Pr!tty, and it seems they’ve moved again.  If you didn’t get a chance to get group gifts last time, or had issues landing in the store, you can try again at another build located on the Senses sim.  I landed just as my letter came up on the lucky board.  I activated my group tag (a group that is currently free to join), and clicked upon the board.  This lovely creation was delivered to me, and I was happy to see it came with some cute sparkly ears too.  My fave!

Pretty in Pink

I also managed to get some free makeup today!  It’s always nice to find a cool subscriber gift, because it doesn’t take up any group space, and once in a while you log in to find a nice surprise delivered straight to your inventory.  This month, Alma have sent out really nice pink eye shadows and lip gloss.  There’s also a green version for those who are feeling a tad more adventurous!  It comes in an Omega applier, so it works with a relay on most mesh heads.  Once you have clicked on the subscriber, click the poster again to see past notices, and there you will find the March Subscriber gift waiting for you.

Wish getting ready was this easy in RL!

Neon Nights

Neon Nights

I am, as I’m sure you are, ready for an injection of some warmth.  I am imagining summer nights today, with neon sunsets of orange, pink and gold, sinking downward towards the ever moving and shimmering waters of the beach.  It may be too early for that, but I found my way to the sunny climes of SL, donned some summery clubwear and threw some shades on for good measure.

Topping it Off

My top, slick as oil, was a free group gift I picked up in my many wanderings around the grid.  The CLBlue shop is new to me, but the quality of the top is impressive and I’m hoping to swing by again soon to see what else they have to offer.  I went on a rant earlier about how talented SL creators are, and how I couldn’t possibly fathom how they made clothing all reflective and shiny – it’s so cool, isn’t it?  You can grab this top by joining the CLBlue group for free!

Shirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kemono Default
  • Kemono Rei
  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Kemono Fitted Torso

Jean-ius

I found a skirt to go with my top at Epoch.  Pretty much the entire store is priced under 75L, so if you’re looking for something budget-friendly, you should definitely check them out.  I picked up this jean skirt for 25L, which is a great deal since I can wear it all the time, with loads of different tops.   There are a bunch of different shades of jean skirts in store, ranging from light blue to this dark black.

UPDATE:  Looks like the price has gone up to 100L for the skirt – Alas! 

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Keep wishing for that heat!

Love Cats

Love Cats

Saturday begins with the sun peeking from behind the clouds, and a deep need for things emblazoned with cats.  Love whispered in my ear that she had espied what my heart desired at Oricay – all the kitty awesomeness!  So I bounced on over, ready to purr…

No Biting or Scratching…

Love was 100% on the ball with her call – I found all sorts of free goodies at Oricay!  I picked up the Kitten bodysuit and socks that pop on easily in one piece with an applier, and quite frankly this is one of the best quality appliers I’ve ever put on without any wobbly lines in spots! Included are appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega as well as System Layers!  I also popped this pink Hello Kitty sweatshirt over to keep off the chill in the dance studio (!).  You can grab these super cute items (and more, as Love showed HERE), by joining the Oricay group for absolutely free.  Woohoo!  The sweatshirt comes in sizes XXS to L with a Alpha Layer.

Crowning Glory

One of my fave hair spots, Pr!tty has recently relocated, and they have a whole lotta free goodies out for you!  At the moment, you don’t even have to join the group.  Just activate your “none” tag in groups, then click on all the gifts and lucky boards.  I managed to pick up loads of hair and accessories, as well as home goods all for completely free.  Today I’m wearing the Letti hair that is one of the (many) free group gifts, and comes in a full fatpack of colours.

Purr your way through the weekend, darlings!

Rebel Yell

Rebel Yell

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more

Billy Idol said it best, if you ask me, as he sneered angrily into his microphone and spiked his bleached-blonde hair up.  I may not be wearing the ripped vests and fingerless gloves of Billy’s era, but I’m still serving up some 80’s rebel realness today (for free)!

Scream Queen

I picked up my look today at Rebel Yell, where they have two group gifts out right now – these jeans with amazing boots attached, as well as the top I’m wearing, which is cropped in the front, and long in the back – a cool twist. The top comes sized for Hourglass, Maitreya and Freya.  You can grab these two gifts by joining the Rebel Yell group for free!  That makes my 80’s child heart happy.

Sizes for Pants

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique

And Still Pr!tty

I also picked up a free fatpack of hair by joining the Pr!tty inworld group for free.  If you check in notices you will find the Valentina hair, but you may want to rush and grab it because it will most likely cycle out of there quite soon!  I’ve been a fan of Pr!tty for a while, and was well chuffed when I found this freebie!  Hop to it!

I should probably stop watching post-apocalyptic 80’s music videos now…right?

NAH!

Wishin’ and Hopin’

Wishin' and Hopin'

Hey there Fab Free!  I’m dreaming of flying away, while wishing for a rest and a dash of magic today.  I’ve got these lanterns carrying my wishes up to the heavens, so fingers crossed that it works!

Dressed in Dreams

I heard somewhere that in order for dreams to come true, you need to dress to impress (I’ve never actually heard that, but I’m just going to make stuff up because why not!).  So I’m dressing in my dreams today, by wearing this lovely silky dress by Safira.  It comes in several appealing shades, including Berry, Black and Rose.  I went with “Sky” because I’m going with the wishes floating upwards theme (ehehe).  You can grab this pretty dress by joining the Safira group for 99L.  There are a whole bunch of other gifts on the wall there, so it’s well worth it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

High Heels Bringing me Closer to Heaven

FurtaCor have some new lucky chairs outside their store!  There are loads of goodies packed in them, and after hanging around for just a little bit, my letter came up and I hopped on the chair.  If you know FurtaCor at all, you know that they provide you with enormous HUDs filled with texture options coming out the wazoo.  I went for the flowery swirly blue to match my dress, but there are loads to choose from!  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  In order to get these shoes, join the FurtaCor group for 1L, and camp out for a bit.  There are a bunch of gifts inside for you too! Here’s a closeup for ya:

Wishin' and Hopin' 2

Anyone else out there wishing for some magic?

Stay Weird

Stay Weird

I’ve always been a proponent of being yourself.  I get it though, sometimes in RL it can be hard to dress the way you want, act the way you want, or do the things you want to do.  That’s the best thing about SL.  Escapism at its finest.  In SL, I choose to Stay Weird.  Luckily for me, there are loads of creators out there who let me be who I want on a budget!  One of my fave designers, Sn@tch (who are always SO generous), have put out a new group gift.  Read on!

Skirting the Issue

This new group gift at Sn@tch is super awesome.  I like the peekaboo lace on the skirt. It isn’t too over the top in the skin showing department!  You can wear this high-waisted skirt with all sorts of things, but it comes with an Omega applier to add this really cool suspender top to the outfit!  You can always wear them separately too!  The skirt comes in loads of different colours to fit your mood of the day.  You can grab this gift by joining the Sn@tch VIP group for 200L, and clicking on the vendor in the VIP seating area.

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physic
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy

Now, go out my little ones – go out there, and stay weird!

My Galentine

My Galentine

I was musing the other day that people can get pretty icky about Valentine’s Day.  I guess when you get down to the nitty gritty, and if you want to be cynical, it is a fairly commercial holiday.  BUT, why be cynical?  It’s winter, it’s cold, and we need something to cheer us up.  So I say, bring on the red and pink, slap on the hearts, and if you ain’t got a man, then celebrate your gals.  Bring on Galentine’s Day!

Carting Away my Heart

I found another AMAZING dress at The Wash Cart Sale!  The almost holographic colouring of this lovely little dress by The Little Bat is tugging at my heart strings, and not at my purse strings!  It’s 10L of gorgeousness in 4 fabulous colours.  I went with Sherbet, because I’m just so sweet ;).  This fatpack comes in sizes XXS – L with an Alpha Layer included.  The perfect dress for a date, with your sweetheart or your BFF.

Heart eyes all round, my Galentines!

Up In The Club

Up In the Club

Can someone please tell me, exactly what is the dress code here?  A night on the town with an eclectic outfit is exactly what I need this weekend!

A Garden Full of Gachas

I stopped by the Gacha Garden, and yet again they have spoiled us with an overflowing haul of gifts!  It was ever so hard to choose what to show you guys, but I settled on this sweet pink bustier by Luas, the very distinctive crown from Ersch and this AMAZING hair by Pr!tty.  And yes, they are all FREE!  I make no secrets about the fact that I adore hair by Pr!tty.  They are always so generous at the Gimme Gacha events, putting out full fatpacks of super cute hair!  I like the way it goes with the halo-like crown that is the free offering from Ersch.  Pair them both with this shiny bustier by Luas, and you’ve got a cool outfit that lets you stand out from the crowd!  The top fits my Maitreya body very well.  To pick up these gifts (and much, much more) join the Gimme Gacha group at the Gacha Garden for free, and pick up your goodies!

Fab Free Skirt!

The latest Fab Free group gift at Revelation is this really cool jean skirt that has very interesting lacing detail up the front.  I actually super adore it and don’t really want to take it off, quite frankly.  You can get yours too for free, of course, by activating your Fab Free group tag and clicking on the vendor.  Of course, the Fab Free group is always free to join!  Yay!

Cheers to a Fab (Free) weekend!

Hibernation Mode

Hibernation Mode 1

I’m hibernating again.  That’s it.  I give up.  We got another dumping of snow today, and I have decreed that I am not leaving my bedroom.  Luckily, I’ve got some cute new loafing items that only cost me 5L each!  Yayness!

Spooky Girl

I went to the Gothic Garage Sale, which is an event chock full of discounted dark outfits.  I found that there are all sorts of goodies you can grab for 5L each!  Just search for the little black cats, and pay them 5L.  I grabbed the giftie at Secret Oktober which is this cute tank!  I’ve always liked clothing with a spooky edge to it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Sugary Shine

As I continued searching for the little cats at the Gothic Garage Sale, I picked up the gift at Sugar, which is this gorgeous pair of unmentionables (that’s panties in the vulgar!).  They sparkle ever so attractively, and have the most beautiful detailing on the *ahem* behind.  Check out a peek of the rearview below!

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!
