Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Quirk Life

Quirk Life

I’m feeling super quirky today.  Well, I mean…. I usually feel super quirky.  Today especially, because it’s Wednesday and I feel like I need to bring some pep to an otherwise exceedingly normal day.  Do you ever do that?   You know, wear a tutu or cat ears to work just to spark conversation?  I might be alone in that camp, but today in SL is a bathing suit, crazy glasses and zappy gun kinda day.  Ha!

Dive In

I’m feeling just so playful in this bathing suit group gift by Rosary.   They regularly put out really high quality gifts, and this one is no exception.  It comes with an HUD to change to various solid colours, as well as my fave part – the different patterns you can choose through the second HUD.  I went all mermaid on  you, but there are a WHOLE bunch to choose from that made my decision pretty difficult.  Have fun with it!  You can grab this group gift by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens.  There are a bunch of other gifts out to enjoy as well!

Pineapple of my Eye

Pineapple of my Eye

Are you ready to bulk up your wardrobe?  It’s always important to have a few basics to throw on – sometimes they make an outfit!  Well, Alaskametro and the Free Dove have teamed up to create a little fun free hunt so that you can have your own capsule wardrobe full of super awesome items!

High and Low

I went over to Alaskametro’s mainstore and searched the area for the hunt prizes which are found in shopping bags peppered around the shop.  Two of the prizes I found are this long tank top (which comes with 3 different textures) and these moto leggings that I think are super versatile.  You could mix and match all the prizes from this hunt and end up with some really stellar looks.  I’ve put the store ad below so you can see what there is to be had.  You will find half of the prizes at Alaskametro, and half of them at The Free Dove.  Best of all, it’s all free!

Beach, Please!

Beach, Please!

Life takes you down many paths – but the best lead to the beach!

Today, my path took me to the beach, and I had the perfect outfit for it.  The “Beach Please” (giggle) outfit was an exceedingly affordable 10 Lindens at The Wash Sunny Side Up Cart Sale.  Have you been yet?  There are so many fantastic things to be had.  I got my outfit at The Little Bat cart, and I couldn’t be happier.  I really love the cut of the top, and of course the sassy wording on it!  This cuteness comes in sizes XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Where does your path take you?

Tropical Nights

Tropical Nights

I’m feeling quite tropical today.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m craving things that smell like coconut and drinks that have flowers in them.  It’s quite possible that it’s this palm frond-adorned dress that I picked up… Whatever the reason, I’m ready for some full on summery weather, and a drink to sip while gazing at the waves!

The Next Chapter

I found some awesome gifts at this month’s edition of The Chapter Four.  It’s their anniversary, so there are loads of fantastic goodies to be had at the event!  Join the group for 10 Lindens, then take a walk around and find all the little pink boxes at each display.  I am wearing the offerings of N-Uno and Pr!tty.  The dress by N-Uno is a Maitreya Lara exclusive and I totally love the palms on the dress.  They make me so happy!  Pr!tty also wowed with their gift at The Chapter Four – there are two different hairdos in the gift.  I’m showing off the long flowing waves that is Avy.  It comes with a full fatpack of colours as well as rigged and unrigged versions so you can get the right fit.  Don’t you love it?

I hope things are warming up nicely, wherever you are!

London Calling

Sixties London

I found a fantastic outfit at The Wash Cart Sale – and it put me in the mood for the swinging 60’s.  Whenever I think about that, I imagine London, England.  You know, Carnaby Street and Mary Quant and Miniskirts.  I hear the sounds of The Beatles in my mind, and I totally want a giant pile of chips.  Though I think the chips thing is completely unrelated (seriously though, if you’ve never had fish & chips in England from a chip shop, you need to do it because your life will be altered forever… so so gooood).  Anyway,  I found the nearest red post box and struck a pose!

Be Legendaire

At The Wash Cart Sale, I found the booth by Legendaire which is filled with fashion-forward goodness.  This skirt and top combo cost me 10 measly Lindens, and is super versatile.  Of course, you can wear them separately, but they also come with various different textures that range from psychedelic to demure.  There’s even a jean option in there.  So Good!

Extend Your Empire

To very little fanfare, Empire’s May group gift appeared in the main store.  It’s these cute bootie-style heels complete with fishnet features.  I really think you could make these work in loads of different situations.  You may know that the Empire group is somewhat expensive at 500L to join, but there are still a bunch of gifts out to make up for the join fee, including shoes, boots and clothing.  The word on the street is that last year’s gifts will be disappearing soon, so if you’re planning on joining, I suggest you do it soon!  These shoes come with loads of colour options, and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

I need to find some chips now.  SEND HELP!

Bucket List

Bucket List

Have you ever just wanted to spend your days lazing on a massive pink tentacle?  Well, it was always my fondest wish, so SL coming through on the bucket list yet again!  (I’m joookiiiiing)

Get it Gacha

All kidding aside, my wish for loads of gifts, however, has definitely come true!  I made my way over to the Gacha Garden event, where (as always) they have completely spoiled us with piles of free gifts!  I found loads of fab things, but today I’m featuring these really fantastic leggings by Promagic which come in this lovely ombré type of colouring in pink and blue.  They are a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  I paired them with the hair I picked up by Analog Dog, which features some blunt bangs and cascading waves, and a colour-change HUD that will allow you to change your hair to a million different shades (not joking – try out the tints!).  Lastly, my nail polish applier is a pretty mint shade from Alme.  I’ve included a bit of a close-up for you below so you can get a peep.  You can grab all these lovely gifts for free by joining the Gimme Gacha group.  Easy Peasy!

Have fun!

No Spoilers

No Spoilers

I went to see Avengers: Infinity War today.  Don’t worry, no spoilers here, I promise.  I went to the movie theatre that I totally adore – it’s for grown ups only.  They serve food and drinks to you right at your seat, and the seats are like giant cozy chairs that recline.  It’s quite literally the most civilised way to go and see a film. Don’t even get me started on the fact that I ordered Mac and Cheese from my seat.  Like…does it get any better? ha!

The Main Attraction

The only way it gets better is with free clothes!  I found this really gorgeous romper – complete with tassels hanging off at Rosary.  You can grab this beautiful outfit for absolutely free, no group join required.  It’s a gift they’ve put out to celebrate all their Facebook followers.  Just tp over to Rosary, amble up to the counter and click on the box – voila!  This romper comes with a colour change HUD to match your myriad of moods.

A Fishing Anecdote

A Fishing Anecdote

I was trying to think of a fishing anecdote, since I’m featuring the fishing outfit currently available at Sn@tch today.  The only thing that came to mind was the time I took a little day trip outside of the city, making my way towards the small towns and lakes that reside about an hour North of me.  I packed up the car with some friends, and we jaunted off in search of adventure.  One of the more outdoorsy types among us decided bringing a fishing pole would be a spiffing idea.  Once out of the concrete jungle, we found a lake with a dock jutting out into it.  A few people had already set up, looking mighty professional about it all.  We sat down, and finally (after a bit of fussing with the poles), I was ready to go.  After a pleasant bit of time lazing with my feet over the dock, I felt a tugging at the line – I had caught a fish!  I was advised to reel it in, and up it came wriggling like mad.  I then proceeded to be the most ridiculous city girl of all time: I screamed, jumped up and let go of the line, fearing the small silver fish might get some of its silver scale juices on me.  Needless to say, the native country-dwellers were all rolling their eyes audibly, and I was rather pink-faced.

Get to the Goods

All my rambling about fish and poles and docks to let you know that my lovely outfit today (including hair, leggings, tank top, and lipstick) are from the current fishing prize from Sn@tch.  I really couldn’t pass up these amazing leggings, so I propped up at the fishing hole, without fear of any slippery fish actually making an appearance!  To get this lovely outfit (and several other items!) grab a 7 Seas fishing rod (it will set you back 100L), and hang out by the pond at Sn@tch.  You can use that pole to fish for all future fishing prizes!  Woot!

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.
