Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” 😉

But it’s all for a good reason: Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins, Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay! (Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty Tule and Leather Dress from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store: Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ❤

You’re So Vain

Selfie

You had one eye on the mirror…

It’s no secret I like taking pictures of myself. Just look at the blog and that is very obvious. But, I think she had enough of me checking myself out in the mirror and told me I should go take a drive and give her a break from “all of this” as she motioned at me. I guess that’s what happens when my light shines too brightly…

Lately I’ve had a problem with people photobombing me. I don’t want them spoiling my perfect photographs with peace signs, rabbit ears and goofy smiles. As I’m driving down the road listening to …Carly Simon?!?  (She must have taken the car and left one of her CD’s in) I get the urge to take a shot with my iPhone and selfie stick (the best invention since the Polaroid camera). I pull over, aim and shoot… nothing is going to spoil this picture of just me in the country….

But you gave away the things you loved…

Today I’m wearing a FREE group gift from LaPointe & Bastchild Designs. The Swear “Classic” T-Shirt comes with a texture changing HUD with different shirt designs. I’m also pointing and clicking in a FREE group gift I picked up at Anbee. The Car Selfie pose  includes the full car, sitting pose and a selfie stick. Both of these groups are FREE to join!

(EDIT: I have been informed that the Anbee group is NOW $10L to join.)

I Just Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

What can’t I get out of my head?

Well, don’t tell him his love isn’t all I’m thinking about (thank you Kylie Minogue), because I may be tossing a thought or two in the direction of Daddy’s Choice Designs today!  Daddy’s Choice Designs has this lovely and romantic spring sundress set out for you as a free Enmeshed Into Spring Hunt Prize.  I am just in love with this short little frock that gives your legs that “going on for miles” look.

If you’d like a copy of the Daisy Spring dress as shown in my photo for yourself, head over to Daddy’s Choice Designs and hunt down the free Easter Egg hunt icon…  and don’t forget your knickers…  you’ll need a pair.  This dress is seriously… short.

  • Slink

Have Love Will Travel

Hitting The Road

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am unsure if it is the warm spring weather or this new outfit I just picked up for free at The Designer Circle Anniversary round, but I was feeling the need to get out and stretch my legs.  Now… Where to go?  I stopped in at Kathryn’s to see if she and Ripley would like to join me, but it looks like Ripley has already led her off on another adventure of their own!  I think I’ll just close my eyes and point to a spot on the map.

It’s Worth The Trip

If you like the outfit I am in today, you should know that the Casey Outfit by Finale Couture – that includes the jacket, pants and Slink add-on shoes is a free gift (priced at 0L!) at this Anniversary Round of The Designer Circle.  In fact… many of the participating designers have freebies or dollarbies you can pick up, just set out on the ground of their displays.

Casey Outfit Sizes & Compatibility:

  • Shoes: Slink
  • Jacket – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer + Fitmesh
  • Pants – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer

Promise of Spring

Promise of Spring

 

Out like a lamb…

As we head into the last week of March, the weather in my part of the world is beginning to show signs that spring has finally arrived. We decided to take a walk (without the dogs in tow, they had their walk earlier today) to look at some of our newest additions to our ever growing menagerie of animals. While it is still cool outside, the sun is warm enough for us to shed our jackets and toss them over our shoulders…

The newest group gift at ::K:: is the Justin Accent Jean Jacket for both him and her. Either sex can choose to wear either the pink or the grayish blue jacket as a nice accessory piece. I am also wearing a gift from The Menstuff Lounge. Black Label Menswear has made a gift of the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers.  The gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are free but to join the group it will cost a one time fee of $50L.

Oh look, the lambs are kissing…. 🙂

Before Dawn

Snapshot_002
Why. Is. Morning. So. Early?

As you can see…  Even on the best of days I am very much not a morning person.   Most mornings, it is pure luck if I can manage to pour a cup of coffee and return the cream to the fridge instead of the cup cupboard (has truly happened so many times).  He is up at the crack of BEFORE dawn even on the weekend, puttering around in the kitchen doing whatever he does in there (on a positive note, I do smell coffee already made 🙂 ).

The Calm Before…

Pulling the covers over my head, I try to muffle out the sounds of doors creaking, kitchen cupboards slamming, and dishes clanging.  Even the dogs are grumbling and huffing with disdain of the way too early morning activity going on.  Finally I can hear him making his way to the door and I’m thinking to  myself…  “finally. silence.”.  I hear him digging out his shoes, and taking his coat out of the closet and creeping out the back door to the man cave.

The Storm…

As the door shuts behind him, the dog leash hanging on the hook beside the door falls to the ground…  My eyes squeeze shut tight instantly knowing and bracing for what was about to happen.   ALL of the dogs jump up and run around the bedroom six times, wagging and panting, collar jingling and barking with excitement, because that is all the signal they need for “It’s time for a W.A.L.K” (I spell out the word walk to avoid the craziness,  but they have learned to spell it out).  I tried calling for him, but he had already made his way out of earshot.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, I pick up the littlest one before she gets trampled on in the pre-W.A.L.K mayhem, dig up some clothes and head out for what is hopefully a very uneventful walk…  Gooood morning!

Back To Bed In My NEW Group Gift?

With any luck I’ll be able to slip back into my comfy new night shirt for another hour or two of sweet dreams when I get back.  I picked up the Miranda Chemise Group Gift at !gO! as a group gift.  The !gO! group tends to do a handful of gifts a year and on occasion sends out instore credit offers, so the 50L join fee was no issue for me!  I have found it has more than made up for it.

Available Sizes:

  • Standard Fitmesh & Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

Looking for a match…

I’m still looking for my perfect match…. I’m of course talking about a mesh head to call my very own. I search, I try the demo, I add skin appliers … and I’m still searching. Someday I will get my very own head… someday….

I found today’s outfit at the Menstuff Lounge. PowerDesign has put on the board  the Rick Outfit as a free group gift. The three piece outfit comes with a cruiser jacket with shirt and tie, jeans and oxford shoes. There is a one time $50L joining fee for the Menstuff group, but with the amount of gifts on the wall, how could you pass it up.

And so my quest continues…
