TGIF at the Beach!

A little bit of boho_001

I’ve been craving a day at the beach for a while… being landlocked in the middle of the USA… but I’m not exactly a swimsuit kind of gal. This pretty boho skirt with its strappy top was just the perfect answer to my mood. I also picked up a beautiful wavy hairstyle to compliment the look but you’ll have to act fast and pick it up today, as it is a Friday only steal, deal!

Hair first! ~ time sensitive!

Pick up my pretty wavy hairstyle at Exile for only 50L today for 50L Friday. You’ll get a regular mesh style as well as a bento style that waves in the wind. You can pick up a pack of natural colors or a pack of pastels, each for just 50L. I fell in love with this pretty style and couldn’t pass it up. It fit my relaxed mood today just perfectly. The weekend is almost here after all!

Continuing the World Tour…

I wasn’t done with the World Tour Hunt. I’ve already showed you several great prizes and when I ran across the 2L gift at Prism, I knew I had to share it with you Fabulous readers. This gorgeous boho feel skirt and top are meant to be worn on breezy days at the beach or… anywhere really.

Dress sizes available:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

JellyRolling… in gifts.

Snake and Empire

Yay a gift!

As Tavish Zane herself said… “Finally”! Yay a group gift from JellyRoll! I love this store and I’m always excited when this creator puts out a gift or a promo or a new release. And there are some amazing things to be had in this store. I stopped by right away when I saw the notice that you can pick up her “Empire Records” Group gift – pictured above – with your free group join and snapped it up! It’s a gorgeous sweater and skirt set in several mesh body sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Belleza, Freya, Isis

Free Snakes!

Pru checked out the Bodfy Event not long ago and posted some of the wonderful gifts you can pick up in her post [here] and I wanted to go see it for myself. I fell in love with the little free Snake Toe Rings from Candy Crunchers. (I love anything from Candy Crunchers I think.) and they fit my Maitreya feet just perfectly. So I decided to go shoeless for my picture. I included a vendor advertisement of the gift below so you can see a closeup!

Happy gift “shopping”!

Heyyyy guyyyyys….

I’m up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness!  I dunno about you, but in RL I don’t look quite as poised when it’s time to have a little sweat sesh (ew why did I just say sweat sesh?), but I figure in SL you can always look effortlessly adorable and working out in a little skirt would totally work!  Wanna know how I put this look together?  Read on!

Sn@tching it Up

If you haven’t been to Sn@tch recently, you may not know that there are a bunch of new lucky boards just waiting for you to claim some prizes!  It’s completely free, no group join required.  You can grab all sorts of goodies.  I picked up the Connie Sport Skirt (comes in a miriad of colours, of course) as well as The Weekender top.  That’s one of my fave finds, because the texture change HUD has loads of options for this cute little crop top. There’s also a pair of jeans tossed in with the top, which come with system layers and an Omega applier.   I love it!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Bunny Shoes!

The good people at Reign put out a little Easter gift last week, and I’m sure you’ll agree that these shoes are insanely adorable.  From the little ears all the way to the cute little cotton tail, they’re just pure perfection.  You can change the accent colours on these cute sneaks, as well as whether you’d like the tip-toe version or a flat look – they come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.  To pick up your pair,  join the Reign group for 250L, and then take a peek in group notices to grab the sneakers to add to your collection.

Now go out there and feel the burn!

A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Vision in Pink_002

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!

On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Neon Nights

Neon Nights

I am, as I’m sure you are, ready for an injection of some warmth.  I am imagining summer nights today, with neon sunsets of orange, pink and gold, sinking downward towards the ever moving and shimmering waters of the beach.  It may be too early for that, but I found my way to the sunny climes of SL, donned some summery clubwear and threw some shades on for good measure.

Topping it Off

My top, slick as oil, was a free group gift I picked up in my many wanderings around the grid.  The CLBlue shop is new to me, but the quality of the top is impressive and I’m hoping to swing by again soon to see what else they have to offer.  I went on a rant earlier about how talented SL creators are, and how I couldn’t possibly fathom how they made clothing all reflective and shiny – it’s so cool, isn’t it?  You can grab this top by joining the CLBlue group for free!

Shirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kemono Default
  • Kemono Rei
  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Kemono Fitted Torso

Jean-ius

I found a skirt to go with my top at Epoch.  Pretty much the entire store is priced under 75L, so if you’re looking for something budget-friendly, you should definitely check them out.  I picked up this jean skirt for 25L, which is a great deal since I can wear it all the time, with loads of different tops.   There are a bunch of different shades of jean skirts in store, ranging from light blue to this dark black.

UPDATE:  Looks like the price has gone up to 100L for the skirt – Alas! 

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Keep wishing for that heat!

Breathing Space

Breathing Space_001

Sometimes we all need a little breathing space. A moment of quiet zen to take a deep breath, visualize our safe place, and find inner peace. My “hunting buddy” took me to a little sim spot called La Vie and I went inside one of the little buildings and thought ahhhh this is breathing space. It was just that little corner where you could take space for yourself and relax!

Where it started.

I found this skirt… at Treze. It’s a new-to-me store and I happened upon this gift skirt there. The group is free to join and then you can pick up the skirt for free. It comes in several sizes in this lovely little print. A Maitreya size was not included, however I found that the Slink Physique size fit my mesh body perfectly. And for the price of free, it’s worth picking this pretty skirt up, to try on the sizes and see if one of the sizes will work for you!

Skirt sizes available:

  • Classic XXS + M
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Slink Physique
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

The right shirt…

I needed just the right shirt to go with this gift. I was hunting through my inventory when my friend showed me a picture of a gift shirt at Kib and I thought whoah, that’s it! Just the shirt I need! The free gift “cute shirt” at Kib is a free gift with your free group join and comes in both grey and pink (I’m sporting the pink in the picture above. You’ll also get several mesh sizes for this cute as a bug shirt as well!

Shirt sizes available:

  • Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Tuesday Trippin’

Tuesday Trippin'

I’ve always maintained that Tuesdays are worse than Mondays.  Mondays at least, you can brace yourself and expect the unpleasantness.  Tuesdays sneak up on you like “Ugh, here I am….I am Tuesday, and I contain many irksome things”, in a gritty and highly unpleasant voice.  Can you tell I had a kinda crappy day?  Never fear, SL freebies are here!

Pineapple of my Eye

The other day, Love posted about a group gift at Loki HERE.  I meandered over there not only because I loved the top she posted, but also because I’m a massive fan of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  The actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston, is like super dreamy.  Anyway, I digress.  At Loki, I found this insanely adorable fishnet top that has cheered me out of my Tuesday funk.  You can change the little fruits with a few clicks to cherries, bananas, or even strawberries.  I went pineapple for some extra vitamins!  You can join the Loki group for free!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

On Trend

I paired my top with this sleek pencil skirt that I picked up as a group gift at Asteria Creations.  They’ve got a heck of a lot of gifts out right now for free with their free group join.  It’s almost overwhelming!  There are dresses, tops, leggings, jackets… Your inventory will thank you!  This skirt can be paired with so many things, that I’m fairly certain I’ll get all sorts of use out of it!

Sizes

  • System Layers
  • XXS – L with an Alpha

Peace out Tuesday.  You almost won this round, but it’s all coming up Aline!
