Support Ukraine in Style!

Stand with Ukraine 1

Second Life is one of the most wonderful worlds in existence.  We can stand together and support our friends in the Ukraine while also loving our Russian friends who never asked their leaders to go to war.  I was so inspired by Cre’s post about supporting the Ukraine, that I quickly hopped onto Marketplace to see what else I could find.  Truly, there are hundreds of freebies out there to show our support for the Ukraine.  I can’t blog them all here, but do a quick search and you will have a closet full of items to show your support.  I found this beautiful FREE Eiko Dress Ukraine by E&E which comes with matching shoes.  I also found the FREE matching Ukraine lipstick by MAD, and a FREE 90s Necklace with a hud including two different peace signs by Melt.

The shoes come with the outfit and match perfectly!

The Fabulous Farmer’s Market!

Amais - Kacey

My gentle readers…I’ve just returned from a week in Vegas.  It was for RL work, but STILL…Vegas!  I came back to SL to find all sorts of fun fabulous things including The Farmer’s Market!  To get these goodies, you go to each store and find the farm stand.  Everything is less than 80L.  This cute outfit named Kacey is by Amias.  This color cost 75L, but there are other colors at full price.  The necklace, adorably enough, is ALSO called Kacey (did they plan that?), and cost 65L at Michan.  There are several different metal choices, but each comes with a HUD for the gem.  The silver is pictured below.

As I catch up with all the SL goodies out on the grid, I found the Farmer’s Market to be a lot of fun!!!

Waiting for Spring with Salt & Pepper

Waiting for Spring

I love to find pretty things in SL.  It makes my heart so happy.  I fell in love with these butterflies, and I knew I needed an outfit that would match perfectly.  So, I went hunting to one of my favorite stores with lots of free gifts…. Salt & Pepper/The Birdcage!  On the day I visited, the group was free, but it’s now up to L300.  But…there are a ton of free gifts for VIPS that make that buy in worth it!

My favorite VIP gift is probably the CBD toilet paper because, I mean, who even knew there was such a thing, but I can’t wear TP, so I found this pretty little number called Mary, instead.  She has a great HUD for mixing and matching the ribbon and lace.  BUT, be sure you have some kind of modesty panty or thong laying about because Mary does not come with one.  I am wearing the universal thong from Kaithleen’s which is also a group gift (the group is 99L to Join) and comes with a sensational HUD.

Dashing to the Diner with Quinnty!

Time for a Milkshake!
Every day, I am eager to read my blogging sister, Aline’s, Fabulous Finds post.  I run around and grab all the things I love, and when I spotted that uber sweet jacket at Quinnty’s that she posted about here, I just had to have it.  I joined the group (50L) and grabbed it, but THEN I looked at ALL the sweet Group gifts for VIPS, and, wow, I was addicted.  There are at least 10 of them but probably more.  It was hard to pick just one to showcase for you, but I picked Mae because it comes with everything for a complete outfit!  You get the cool jacket, the jeans, and these super cute sneakers!!!

The Sneakers!
For your 50L group fee, you  also get a store credit for 50L, so you do get your money back to use on some of the other cute things for sale in the store!!  I love the colors and the creativity of this outfit, but now I am ready for a milkshake!!!!

Steampunk for the Wanderlust Weekend Win @ Infiniti

Steampunk Desi
I get soooo excited when the weekend sales come out.  Over the years, I’ve learned that fashion trends in SL are just like fashion trends in RL.  For example, right now, it’s impossible to find short nails because the long nails are all the rage.  But, weekend sales make it possible for me to find unique things that are around town and find new designers.  I still struggle with finding shorter nails, but I hold out hope!  Wanderlust Weekend is one of my favorite weekend events because I truly find unique new goodies all over the grid.

I had not heard of Infiniti Projects before, and while I don’t normally wear Steampunk or Apocalyptic wear, I am fond of the look from time to time.  Through the free Wanderlust Weekend hud (version 1.1), I popped into the store to find a TON of 50L goodies!  The outfit above is called Shandi.  The top and jacket are 50L and the skirt is 50L.  There are four leather colors (black, brown, burgundy and green).  They also had a corset on 50L special.  I checked out their prices for other fine threads, and they are really pretty good.

While I am not sure these hot sales will be up when you get there, they are definitely on the watch list for future Wanderlust deals.

Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Physique

Lucky Board Score @ LSR

Lucky Board Gold @ LSR
Back in the day, my friend Daliah and I would spend all day running around the grid slapping boards, sitting in chairs, and finding the best freebies on the grid. Daliah had avatars in almost every letter and number so she was sure to score outfits for all of them.  They had different personalities and styles.  Whew, that was a lot of work.  Desi, however, has always just been one avatar, and all her lucky scores are the reason you get lost upon teleport…because her inventory is carrying around lucky chair items since 2006!

Sadly, Daliah returned to RL and took all her avatars with her.  But, I am keeping the pace and have a few favorite haunts that have produced beautiful threads.  I’ve already raved about Siss Boom’s FREE NGN lucky chairs here, but today I am going to take you to another of my other favorite haunts…LSR.  There is a 99L buy in, ladies, BUT, I promise you, it’s worth the cost.  You get so much FREE stuff by being a member!!!

Both the Sexy Shakia outfit and Yamileh boots in this outfit are from the lucky boards.  LSR also has amazing group gifts and 50% VIP Exclusives (limited copies), and right now, VIPS can get a 300L credit for the store.  My blogging sister, Aline, blogged about that sweet deal here.

I’ve done a wee close up so you can appreciate the nice detail of these boots!!!

Lost Hearts Hunt ~ 25 FREE & Fabulous Gifts!!!

Lost Hearts Hunt!
I love me a good hunt, but I really don’t like hunts that are just too hard.  I mean, really, who has all that spare time???  I loved (LOVED) the Lost Hearts Hunt located at Valentine Island.  There are 25 easy to find prizes all over this very well decorated Valentine’s Day sim.  There are lots of places to take pictures; lots of places to picnic, dance or play with your SL partner!  But, what’s the BEST part you ask…well, everything is FREE!!!  No group is needed :-). You have some time to get there, but definitely don’t miss it!  The hunt lasts until February 20, 2022.

The Valentine's SimI don’t want to spoil the hunt for you…so I am not telling you where any of these little hearts are located, but, they aren’t overly hard to find.  They are FREE, so just right click and buy for 0L.  Don’t try the age old trick of looking up under Creator because the amazing creator, Tayren Theas, has created pretty much everything on the sim, so you will have beacons everywhere :-). Tayren has been on the grid a long time and designs for SL Ballet.

The Hearts are all different I’ve featured a few of my favorite FREE gifts in the picture above, but, truly, I spent 20 minutes just trying to decide.  The Asian Teahouse comes with furniture and plants (not pictured).  The ladies pajamas match the Men’s boxers (also not pictured).  This chess set that I am standing on can be PLAYED!  The Fountain behind me has running water.  The couple’s tree comes in three versions (Spring, Winter, and White Flower).  There are also adorable Valentine’s chalk posters (not pictured).  The list goes on and on.

So, what are YOU waiting for…grab cupid’s bow and arrow and get on over to Valentine Island!

A Closeup of the Ring

In this picture, I am wearing the adorable pajamas (called Loungewear) and the little gold heart ring that was easy to adjust.  These gifts both have FREE male counterparts (boxers and a male heart ring).  How cool is that???

The Girl Next Door in a [Well Made] Outfit

[Well Made] Astra Outfit
I am a sucker for a nicely made outfit with parts I can choose to wear or not.  The Astra Outfit is this week’s 50L Weekly Limited selection from [Well Made].  There are actually three parts to it…the sweater, the skirt AND a warm fuzzy fleece jacket.  I chose not to wear the jacket because it covered this amazing sweater that I think is so incredibly pretty.  The HUD has many colors to mix and match to create a look that truly reflects my girl-next-door personality.

But…here is the catch.  There are a limited number of copies for this fabulous outfit, soooooo…run, run, run!  Go grab her!
