Ruby in Luminescence at Nightfall

Sometimes… the beauty of the world just makes your heart stop. Just for a moment. Because you have to take a moment to really see it as it is, and in order to do that… everything has to stop, even you. The world keeps turning of course, but you can’t seem to turn with it. Because you’ve paused… breathless and waiting, teetering on that edge of luminescent beauty…

We’re teetering on the edge now… the threshold of the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. New beginnings, new days, and fresh starts. Things are ending… but new things are beginning. There are a few things ending here in Second Life that it’s not too late for you to catch before the New Year begins.

First, drop by the Christmas Under the Tree Event. It runs until December 31 and there are a ton of beautiful gifts under the tree along with terrific shopping opportunities all in one place. My lovely Knit Sweater and Casual Leggings (both in black) by [Ruby] were two of the numerous FREE gifts I found under the tree, no group required. Like many of the gifts, they are fully mesh in multiple sizes to fit most avatars, and the details are just lovely. And if you are looking for decor, or men’s wear, there were FREE gifts of that type under the tree at the event as well!

The Cart Sale is still on of course and running full swing! I picked up this stunning necklace to add a little color to my all black scheme from the Luminesse Jewelry Cart. It is called Smokin Rose Pendant and is simply perfect. Like all Cart Sale merchandise it was only a mere 10L!

I also want to mention that it’s not too late to pick up any last minute items from the Peace on Earth Hunt if you haven’t finished up your hunting yet. You have until January 9th to pick up your FREE prizes from this hunt. My Laina boots by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes were a FREE POE8 prize, generously offered up by this creator. Don’t worry, if boots are not your thing, you should still stop by… there was a set of pretty heels in the POE8 globe with the boots as well!

Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and PINKY*GALS Gift!

Hi all!

Today I have items from three stores that are participating in the Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and one super cute FREE dress from PINKY*GALS!

First a little info on how the Hunt works.  It is a bit different from your regular hunt…in the Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt you go to the link I provided and you will find instructions, photos of all the items in the hunt and HINTS on where to look for the eggs.  There are several eggs in each store, containing one item, and the trick is finding the spot, via the hint given, where you might see the egg…BUT you will need to keep a keen eye on that spot because the eggs randomly appear and disappear!  So you may see it one moment and then the next moment it is gone!  It is a great hunt and loads of fun..with fantastic prizes to be found!  Let’s get hunting!

My first outfit is from Sky, it is this adorable pink top, shorts, handbag, bunny headband and flower ring! Such a cute outfit and yours FREE if you find all five eggs before they disappear!  Remember to use the HINTS…they really do help.  The hair is Tomorrow from MAGIKA (not free), the shoes are Plumeria Sandals Rare (gacha item from previous Arcade) from Pure Poison,  and the pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

Next we have an oh-so-cute Kawaii inspired outfit from Hapi Rabi!  This outfit comes with the bunny bag, bunny ears, dress, knee socks and prim nails (not worn) and is FREE…all you need to do is spot those eggs!  The hair is Tomoko2 (Ruby, limited color) a previous lucky board prize from “”D!va”” Hair.  The Ribbon Cupcake Mouthie is 25L for a transferable fat pack of 8 colors…available at [:Kawaii Couture:] and the shoes are part of an outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie, 25L, also available at [:Kawaii Couture:]!   My pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

My final outfit shows only a few of the items available from Perch.  Follow the hints, find the eggs and you will be given this cute birdie bag, lunch box and sneakers (there are also a non mesh top and shorts not shown) absolutely FREE!!  Catch those disappearing eggs!  The mesh dress is a FREE gift (no group join required) from PINKY*GALS.  *Note…the SLURL link for PINKY*GALS takes you to the Love Soul shopping mall…walk out of the mall and the shop will be in the first building to your left. My soda is Dollypop from [:Kawaii Couture:] and my pose is a previous subscriber gift from Diesel Works.  The hair bow is Kyary PonPon Alice Bow – Creamy Yellow…available for FREE from .:Midi:Nette:. on the MarketPlace and my hair is Norma (Ruby limited color) a previous COLLABOR88 item from “”D!va”” Hair.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Saucey Sinister…the owner and creator behind Dollypop and [:Kawaii Couture./Dirty Dollies:].  I love Kawaii so I was excited to visit Dollypop Adventure Land…where I found an entire sim themed for everything Kawaii, Doll, Dolly, Cosplay and CUTE!  Exploring Dollypop Adventure Land was a real treat…but the [:Kawaii Couture:] was even more fun to discover!  I found this adorable Tea Party Dress for only 25L (non mesh)…it comes with the dress and socks.  The shoes are from another [:Kawaii Couture:] outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie Doll; also only 25L!  My [:Kawaii Couture:] Beach Cutie Headband (the pink poka dot glasses with the cute bow) was a wonderful gift and is currently not available.  There are also lots of fun gacha machines scattered all around the Dollypop Adventure Land sim…where I won these sweet little Flip Flop Earrings RARE (green polka dots) for only 10L on my first try!
The [:Kawaii Couture:] "" D!va""The hair I am wearing is another FREE lucky board hair, Asami (ruby limited color), from ““D!va”” Hair…no group join required and it comes with two bang styles as well as a detachable side ponytail!  The sweet air chair balloon prop (with pose), from flowey., is available at the latest round of COLLABOR88 for 88L…and it comes with four different watercolor choices!  The yummy little Grey Bunny mouthy is available on the Marketplace for 10L from .::VioleNt Chemicals::.,  the Kyary PonPon Glasses – Sweet Pink (with bows or without) are FREE, from .:Midi:Nette:., also on the Marketplace.  I found the cutest Easter Back Pack, from Flippant,  on the Marketplace for only 25L!  I previously showed the *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L HERE.  I also previously featured the cute nose butterfly, from :ECCO:. , as part of a set…HERE.

Hopping and Hunting in Holy SHIrT, D!va, K-Room and ::YaYo::!!

Greetings!

With Easter just around the corner, I have found all kinds of hunts and sales hopping ALL over SL! Starting with this adorable mesh bunny dress from Holy SHIrT! The dress is FREE as part of the sim wide MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt…just find the little decorated Easter eggs, placed in the stores and around the sim, click on it and buy the item for 0L! There are TONS of eggs to be found as well as lots of really great deals from the stores on the MC Fashion Stores and Events sim.  I needed something cute to accompany the dress…so I decided to do a little hunting and hopping around the Marketplace.  I found this “My plushie rabbit..with Easter basket” for only 1L…from DramaZone!

~Hopping into Easter~

I also found these *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L.
~Hopping into Easter~I finished off this look with the ::YaYo:: – Bunny Face & Stripes – Dollarbie…just 1L from ::YaYo::.  My gorgeous hair is a previous Lucky Board prize, Nana (Ruby) limited color, from “”D!va” Hair.  Not to worry…there are always fantastic styles up fro grabs in the “”D!va”” Lucky Boards and NO group join is required.  The color is limited to the Ruby I have on…but is is sooooooooo sweet, it’s a fun color for spring and a great way to try out this fabulous designer’s hair.  You can also join the “”D!va”” group for free and you will find quite a few group gifts on the second floor!

It Looks Good to be VIP!

It looks good to be VIP! Recently a few of my favorite stores sent out or put out group gifts, and they are beautiful!!! These amazing mesh tops are all three beautifully textured, perfect examples of why being part of a group or joining a subscribo is totally worth it. The first top is from !gO! and I still can’t get over the shading of this crochet top. Available in store to all group members, there is a $50 linden join fee, but this shirt alone is worth that! Not to mention that !gO! always puts out high quality VIP gifts, so again, nominal fee, huge rewards! The top shown in the second picture is a super seductive September VIP gift, a lace cami top from Cheeky. Cheeky puts out a monthly VIP Gift, and gives purchase rewards to all VIP customers when buying items in store! There is a $50 linden join fee for Cheeky also, but I could say this a million times, the fee is entirely worth it! Who doesn’t love monthly gifts?!? The third picture shows the Subscribo gift from RUBY, and guess what, Subscribo Gift means no fees! This top is totally free, just gotta click the Subscribo! The textures on this top are so rich, and I love the way the center part reminds me of the doodles I used to draw on my notebooks in school!
