“Bee” Beautiful

Flowers and the Bees_002

“Be” Beautiful!

I love the message on the group gift I found for you today! “Be your own kind of beautiful” is just the kind of message we all need to hear now and then as a lovely reminder 🙂

I picked up this pretty dress at GeMyles as a Fitmesh Fantatics Group Gift. You just need to be a member of the Fitmesh Fantatics Group (the group is free to join) and stop by the GeMyles main-store to nab up this pretty dress for free! It comes in fitmesh sizes XS – XL.

Flowers and the Bees_001

More “Bees” please!

Not only are we “Being” beautiful but I have a “bee” and flower gift to show off that is simply stunning! I showed you the latest Meva group gift in my post here and mentioned that there were 9 total group gifts out to be had. I wanted to show off some of the others and decided that this beautiful bento ring set was perfect with my outfit!

These rings are made to fit bento Maitreya hands and you get a Daisy and a Bee for your right and left hands. The group is 100L to join, but remember, there are currently 9 group gifts out to be had for your join fee!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring…

We all bleed the same color. 1

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… after all I was in my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive Bloom dress from the Cart Wash Sale with its asymmetrical hem and floral material…

Even if it did come in all the following sizes…

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

… I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… wearing my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive heels from the Cart Wash Sale (which fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza feet)… but that didn’t stop me.

I knew when I saw the sign on that airplane that someone had spray painted, “Do epic shit” that it was time to step out of my comfort zone and step into adventure… even if I was wearing a dress. So I crossed through the broken down fence to the crash site and wandered in.

We all bleed the same color. 2

Once inside, I explored the wreckage. It was littered with “treasures” and things I wanted to see. There was some graffiti that caught my eye and seemed important to remember: “We all bleed the same colour.” Yeah… isn’t that the truth. So many forget that in their everyday lives as they walk down the street. It’s a good motto to live under the moon by.

It had me fingering my new free texture change Lotus Moon necklace from Moondance Boutique. It was part of a matched set that included earrings too… as well as a bunch of beautiful rings, but I’d left the rings at home. I managed to get it as a group gift (the group was free to join) and I was tickled pink about it…

… even if I wasn’t dressed for adventure.

Spumped by That Vintage Touch

Rev me up! I’m ready to ride! And a little Vintage Touch added to my inventory was just the attitude adjustment my wardrobe needed to spruce up my Sunday stop at BB’s Diner in Second Life!

The Vintage Touch [1]

You still have a few day’s left to catch the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale. So before time runs out, make sure you stop by the Vintage Touch Cart to check out their fabulous mesh T-shirts. These classic designs are only 10L each, come in all the standard sizes, and are transferable for gift giving too!

The Vintage Touch Cart also has a special deal for you while you are at their cart! If you touch the Landmark giver to their main store, it will give you a free gift and then you can travel to their main store where their line of zodiac pendants and rings are currently on sale for only 10L each as well!

Each ring or pendant package includes both a male and female item in two sizes. Astrid is wearing the Capricorn set above and below is a picture of the full line up of all the zodiac styles available!

The Vintage Touch [3]

Okay, so I couldn’t resist a stretch out on top of the convertible I found outside of the diner… but only because I wanted to show you these fabulous SHOES! Oh my goodness! You simply must make a hop stop to shop at Pure Poison to nab up these heart-popping Leila Spumps. Yes! I said spumps! If you are wearing your Pure Poison Group tag you are eligible for a free spin on the Leila Gacha and can get a pair of these fantastic spumps for free! I didn’t get the rare, but the gift gacha granted me a pair in black, so I was just as spumped (pun intended)!!!

Best yet? Right now the Pure Poison group is FREE to join, making this a FREE gift! This may be a limited time offer, as I do remember the group having a fee in the past, so be sure to nab up your group invite ASAP!

The Vintage Touch [2]

Now if wine and burgundy aren’t your thing, don’t let that deter you from stopping by the Vintage Touch Cart to pick up a T-shirt. As you can see below, the variety is terrific. There are 8 great styles available, in 8 different colors — and while my shirt was about wine… there are shirts for milk lovers, tea drinkers, coffee connoisseurs, and beer buddies. This creator has you covered! Check it out below!

Accessorizing with Earth Bangles!

Nov4 Orange Hunt_001
Whew!!!! I know there are so many hunts going on right now, and here I am adding one more to your list. Do you forgive me? Here, let me sweeten the pot, this hunt is also free and doesn’t require any group joining. Also, the hunt is all in one store, with 11 items to find. This hunt is called the Orange Hunt at Earth Bangles, and it ends on November 7th, so you definitely want to make your way on over soon enough. It really shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes are so to find all the oranges and increase your options on accessories. With all that said, lets take a gander at some of the things I found.

Nov4 Orange Hunt_003
Lets check out the orange flats and ankle warmers, the flats and warmers are package together but you do not have to wear them at the same time. I love wearing heels just as much as the next fashionista but I had to give the balls of my feet a break before I end up with blisters. I can definitely rock these flats for a simple day hanging out with the family.

Nov4 Orange Hunt_004
Moving up from the shoes the next thing is the purse, bracelets, and rings. The rings come for each hand and the same goes for the bracelets. If you click on the picture you can notice that the ring is a nice burnt orange colored flower, while the bracelet is a sweetly shaped heart.

Nov4 Orange Hunt_005
Then we have this oh so cute tear drop pendant necklace that adds some fabulosity to a very simple outfit.

Nov4 Orange Hunt_006
Lastly, are these earring that I feel in love with, because of its simplicity and the green leaves at the center.

Sometimes its the accessories that makes the outfit, and partaking in the Earth Bangles Hunt, you can pull together a really nice fall look with all their goodies.

HAPPY HUNTING!
