The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Life’s A Beach

Life's A Beach

I’ve never actually been to a tropical beach.  You know, the kind with palm trees and the smell of coconuts (or at least that’s how I imagine it), but I have been to Mediterranean beaches quite often.  I think that sitting on sand and seeing the sun sparkle on the waves really is one of the best things you can do for your soul.  And as I always say, when you can’t get to it in real life – then hop to a beach in SL, because there really are some gorgeous ones out there.  I went to Adele and had a lovely time on the sand.  You should too!

Well Suited

My bathing suit today (which quite frankly, can double as a little summer top, or very short shorts if you want to get creative) is by Scandalize and is a second group gift for an upcoming event they’re hosting called Vanity.  If you join the Vanity group for free, then peek into notices, you will find this lovely bathing suit that suits me just fine!

Let Me Take A Selfie

Let Me Take A Selfie

One of my life mottos is “You can never have too many t-shirts”.  I own a vast amount of shirts in RL, that take up a lot of space.  I’ve got it all:  Band T-shirts (hey Led Zeppelin), tv shows (Jem and the Holograms, yaaaas), and even really weird ones that don’t necessarily mean anything, but amuse me (“Welcome to the Faraway Kingdom” – does that have a meaning I’m unaware of?).   Anyway, the moral of the story is that my piles of shirts carry over to SL, but I don’t need to fold them or find space for them!  Yay!

Get Shirty With Me

I found a collection of cropped t-shirts at Tooty Fruity that are completely free!  There are a massive amount of black tops in this gift, each with a different word on them.  I went with one of the less rude options (Keepin’ it PG-13 y’all!) but there are piles of amusing tops you can choose from.  They come with an Omega applier as well as System layers.  I also found this fun headband while at Tooty Fruity, and I thought it just added to my randomness smashingly.  Grab both for free at the store, no group join required.  Pssst – there are other free gifts there waiting to be discovered!

Do you have a fave t-shirt?  A collection?

I’d love to hear about them!

Classy Dame

Classy Dame

Everyone needs a good bunch of classic items for their wardrobe.  Even me, the girl who loves bodysuits, pastel hair and thigh high boots.  Sometimes you just gotta dress it up all classic-like and be respectable and such!

Boss Time

I found this very appropriate, yet modern look that will take you from work to cocktails in no time.  And of course, it’s FREE!  I picked up the Donna pants and shirt at No Name by joining their group for free.  The shirt comes with an HUD that allows you to change to six satiny colours.  You can wear the top and pants separately, which will expand your outfit opportunities greatly!  This outfit comes in XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Hair Flair

There are several new lucky boards up at Olive, making the total opportunities for a new ‘do rocket up to 12!  Yep, 12 different boards – 12 different styles for all your hair needs.  You don’t even need to join a group, just a little luck and patience.  I was lucky enough to grab the long, blonde “White Rabbit” hair for free which I’m feeling quite luxurious in!  Go get ’em!

I think my work here is done, so now time for that cocktail!

Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!

Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

Seeking the Sea

Seeking the Sea

I remember once, walking along the beach in Southern Italy.  It was hot.  It usually is there.  It was the end of the beach season though, so late August or early September – and the beach was mostly empty.  I was walking along, enjoying the sun, the light breeze and the carefree feeling of having sand between my toes, and water lapping at my ankles.  I looked up suddenly, and saw a dolphin swim by!  The magic of the beach does soothe the soul, and I know that the daily grind is wearing on me these days – time for a trip to the beach?  Maybe not in RL, but SL comes the the rescue again!

Beach, Please!

I found this glorious sundress – made for strolling along beaches, if you ask me, at DM Modas.  I joined their group for free and this amazing dress was all mine!  It comes with a really awesome texture change HUD, filled with 15 swirling summery designs that will set your heart aflutter.

Well darlings, may the beaches of SL and RL bring you peace and grounding!

Not So Basic

Not So Basic

My go-to is the little black dress.  I love the easy glam of pulling on a black dress and knowing it will be appropriate, no matter the situation.  However, some days you really just want to push the envelope a bit.  Purple is the perfect half way point, I think.  Because it’s dark, sultry, and um…not black!  In my post today, I’ll tell you all about where to grab this particularly head-turning ensemble!

Dressed Up

I found my not so basic dress at Masoom!  Their April group gift is this dress that toes the line between supersexy and regal, and I’m loving every minute of it!  You can grab yours by joining the Masoom group for 10L.  I mean, check out them cut outs!  How can you possibly live without?  😉

Well Heeled

My shoes today were a completely free find at Bodyfy – the event that focuses mostly on tattoos and other suchness.  I was pleased to find a free pair of shoes by Fashion Addiction.  Just find the red buttons at each stall to pick up your gifts – no group join required, making these pretty pumps completely free!  The Bodyfy event is open until April 24th.

Best Tressed

And, it’s Truth time!  The March group gift came out a smidge late, however check out this pretty thing!  As always, the Truth monthly group gift is gorgeous, with a full fatpack of colours and a stylist HUD that lets you change up the bangs.  It’s kinda like getting 4 hairstyles in one!  If you haven’t joined the Truth group, it may seem a little pricey at 350 Lindens, but every month you get a sweet hairstyle that is always top notch.  Well worth it!

Time to sashay away!

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

And The Sky Is A Hazy Shade Of Winter

RIRLifeNCoreMINAGood morning Fabulouses!  The weekend may be nearly over, but I’m making the most of it enjoying the weather now that it has warmed up enough.  Of course it’s not warm enough to melt all of this snow, but at least it’s bearable now!

I bundled myself up in the latest group gift by RIR Life, which is the Padded Coat in the sweetest shade of Coral.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and has a group join fee of only 10L.  RIR Life does really nice monthly group gifts, so your 10L will go super far if you stay in the group.

Warm Winter Boots

I wasn’t about to head out into this frozen tundra without a good pair of winter boots, and just in time… N-Core put these cute Winter Boots out as a free group gift!  They include a texture change HUD with six colours too!  I have added the vendor ad below as well because it turns out that most of the detailing is hidden in the snowy grass :/.
