Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new to me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe.:)

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.

Oki Aquarius

Oki Aquarius

The Runway Perfect Hunt ends May 31st, so there is still some time for hunters to make some last minute stops before this hunt is over. If you stop by Prism Designs, they are offering two gifts for this 5L Hunt — one for the ladies and one for the gents. In the picture above I’m showing you the men’s gift… the Oki Jacket and Oki Shorts.

This outfit will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time, and you’ll get all the standard mesh sizes. It’s worth adding to your wardrobe for casual wear.

Garden Swank

Garden Swank

I managed to beat Astrid to the Swank Event! And scored a great FREE men’s gift in the process. This really amazing Baka Jacket for men (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) by Bakaboo is a FREE gift (no group required) at the current round of Swank. Several designers are giving gifts at their booths for both guys and gals, so this event is well worth visiting.

I’m sure Astrid will want to head there later now that I’ve broken the ice…

Don’t be shy… go get your Swank on!

My Zombie Love

I get to combine three things I love into one post! Zombies, music, and books! And I can tell you where you can get two out of three… that ain’t bad!

My fabulous Zombie Love T-shirt by Ruckus (mesh in all the standard sizes) is only 10L and can be found at the Cart Wash Sale (along with several other really fabulously fun T-shirts!).

I’m also rocking out with my new headphones courtesy of Wicca’s Wardrobe and the Fantasy Collective Hunt for only 10L as well! They come in two styles in the box… the neck style I’m wearing… or a set that goes on the head/ears (not shown). You’re looking for a little red pumpkin!

As for the books, well… you’ll just have to get your own. I’m not loaning mine out.😉

Arabian Nights and Wicked Pleasures

“A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance.” [The Arabian Nights]

There are always conflicting ideas about the finer things in life — and whether or not they are material wealth or riches in the form of things like health and family. The good news is, that if your wardrobe is drooping, it won’t cost you much more than a bit of patience for these striking Arabian Nights looks!

Wicked Pleasures 1

I discovered that ALB Fashion has out a gorgeous new tunic dress as a group gift called Sandy for FREE if you wear your group tag. It is a one time fee of 500L to join, but there are quite a few quality past group gifts out and more gifts in the future to come. The tunic dress came in two colors and in all the standard sizes for a great fit (I paired it with jeans and it made a stunning top).

My necklace, pictured above, is a FREE gift, but it’s going to take you some patience and persistence. It is a two part necklace (so you could wear just the short or just the long piece for added versatility) and called India and is a Mini Mania Board prize by Wicked. The board is 10 slaps and starts over every time it reaches 10, randomly giving out 1 prize to 1 person who has slapped the board. I was thrilled as this necklace with its great indigo color matched my new tunic just perfectly!

Wicked Pleaures 2

My Wicked Alex Sweater shown above is also FREE at Wicked, but like the India necklace will take a bit of patience and luck. Currently at Wicked, not only is there a Mini Mania Board out for shoppers to slap, but there are also two lucky letter chairs. I was super lucky as not only did I get the India necklace, but my letter came up for this gorgeous sweater as well! The sweater comes in all the standard mesh sizes and while the sweater part itself is one solid color, the bra part comes with a color change Hud for versatility making this a fabulous giftie! Woot!

Wicked Pleasures 3

If patience is not your thing, it’s still worth stopping by Wicked for the current group gift. Shown above is the FREE group gift offering – the Sally Blouse in Rouge. The group is FREE to join, making this gift completely FREE. Like all the other items, it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is a great fit!

Wicked Pleasures 4

I paired my Sally Blouse with a lovely jewelry Gift from Chop Zuey that is in store currently. This stunning set called Dragon Heart Demi Parure is yours FREE with your group tag (and one time join fee of 350L but don’t worry — there are regular gifts to make it well worth it!). The choker and earrings are resizable and texture change and you can change the two gems on the earrings separately allowing for multiple combinations of colors! What a treat!

***************

Be hotter than Arabian Nights yourself!

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!

Welcome To Fantasy Island!

71415 tiffany 1

I always wanted to say that in my best, most romantic Spanish accent possible. For me growing up, Ricardo Montalbán was very cool, and when he greeted the guests on the TV show Fantasy Island with that iconic greeting, I realized nothing in the world was cooler than being a very rich man in a white suit. Oh yeah, the show had all kinds of mushy nonsense in it as well, but for me it’s the suit that I find unforgettable!

My memories of that show came flooding back when I saw what Tiffany Designs has put out as a group gift: this fantastic white suit! Now, it isn’t exactly the same suit as he wore in that tropical paradise, but it doesn’t matter. It is beautifully made and gives that same “I am so rich, I am going to order extra hot sauce on my chicken wings without giving it a second thought” kind of look. The Tiffany Designs Rey Mesh Formal Suit in white comes in two pieces: The upper (consisting of the white jacket, black shirt and dark red tie ) and the lower (the white suit pants). Each piece is offered in five sizes to help you get a good fit. If you click on the picture above and then click once more to zoom in, you can see it is nicely textured too. The suit is a FREE group gift, but Tiffany Designs will cost 50L to join. This outfit alone is worth that. The group gift will likely be changing this weekend so run there to pick this up as soon as possible and get ready to pick up another quality outfit in just a few more days. In real life, this kind of clothing wouldn’t last ten minutes on me without getting ruined in some random, yet entertaining, way. This is about fantasy though, and not practicality. So, chicken wings be damned! I finally have my fantasy summer suit!

Getting out of the summer sun, I couldn’t wait to show you a new hunt prize from the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt that just started two days ago. The Moon Willow Designs Ven Outfit in Tan is a stylish set consisting of an earth tones vest with a very detailed (but easy on the eyes) fabric texture and a tan shirt designed to be worn under it. The shirt looks sharp and is well textured, but carries the shadow of the vest on it, so that using it without the vest is unlikely. Taken as a unit though, both pieces look very nice together and would be a trendy choice to wear as the summer begins to wane and the nights grow cooler. The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt prizes cost only 1L, and the hunt object you are looking for is a rolled up scroll or map.

Lastly, I had to indulge in my Siamese cat fascination a moment. The coolest cats I ever shared space with were Siamese. The Kitty Shape Wear “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt has a cute cartoon featuring two of them on the front. As an experienced Siamese cat person, I can tell you most assuredly they are plotting something evil together. Still, when you look that good, a li’l bit of evil is entirely forgivable. The shirt is tan, comes in five sizes and is wide at the bottom to avoid conflicting with mesh jeans. Finding something to wear with it will be a breeze. The “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt is a 1L prize from the Cats Hunt and the hunt object you are looking for is a small paw print.

Well, I shall wave my farewell from my own personal Fantasy Island, where I stroll about unworried about getting catsup and mustard all over my dapper white suit. Maybe the time has come for me to begin the next phase of my life: the “Gentleman Cat Rancher” phase. Until I do, however, have fun and I’ll see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Feel like a sweet flower with La Petite Fleur’s gifts!

=== EDIT: A few people have messaged me and expressed concern about the landmark for La petite fleur, and I must apologize, I accidentally posted the incorrect LM! It is correct now, so make sure to go and check it out! ===

Heya Fabbies!

So, Love messaged me the other day and told me about a super cute little store called La Petite Fleur, and to my pleasant surprise, they had a ton of really great, really really cute gifts that are free for everyone! I’ve taken some shots of a few of the gifts, but the rest you’ll have to go and see for yourself!

Snapshot_391

To start off, we have the oh so flattering peplum top, which was a gift for the shop’s 5th anniversary! I’ve paired it (and the other items I grabbed) with a pair of basic skinny jeans, but I think this would look great with shorts, a skirt, or even over a swimsuit!

 

Snapshot_390

Next we have the Ruffle one dress, which comes in black (shown) and also in beige in the same pack!

Snapshot_389

Third, we have a fun super-oversized hoodie. The pack includes 2 versions of this: Gray with green text, and white with red text. These only come in one size, but I tried it on a wide variety of shapes and it seems to stretch just fine!

Snapshot_388

Last, but most certainly not least, is the sweater tee I’m wearing! The pack includes XS, S, and M sizes of the top, and 5 different colours (black, pink, blue, gray and brown)
