Buyer’s Remorse Need Not Apply

Buyer's Remorse Need Not Apply

Shopping never fails to get me into a better mood than I was.  I’m sure buyer’s remorse is a thing that plagues the masses after spending a bit of dough, but in the immortal words of Cher and Dionne from Clueless:

“Dude, what’s the matter? Are you suffering from buyer’s remorse or something?”
“Oh God no, nothing like that!”

And when the shopping’s free – no remorse required!

Beautiful, Dirty, Rich

There’s a new group gift at BDR!  That’s Beautiful, Dirty, Rich if you’re feeling proper.  I luuuurve when they come out with new free stuff, because it’s always awesome.  This top and shorts come with a huge pile of different colour and texture options in the HUD so that you can go from dark and moody (like me) to flowery and spring-like!  Join the BDR group for free, and this is alllll yours!

Modern Spring Goddess

Modern Spring Goddess

It’s time to bask in the magic of Springtime delights, my dear readers!  That means find a cute dress, hop on the bicycle, get something tasty and hang out in a park.  I can’t possibly think of what I’d rather be doing in this lovely weather that happens to have appeared in my part of the world, so it’s time to take advantage.

Yummy and Plummy

I headed over to Shanti for this sweet dress.  It’s all sorts of Spring magic to me – the boho feel, the purple tones… love it!  To get yours, just join the Shanti group for 50L and click on the gift box.  You’ll find a few other sweet gifts there too, so don’t miss out on them!

Clutter my Life

You may or may not have heard, but there’s a super fun Easter egg hunt going on at the Cies Island sim.  Most of the stores are participating, and my first stop was Tentacio.  I have always adored their penchant for fun and sweet clutter.  My inventory is pretty full of their awesome creations!  You can get all sorts of goodies there by clicking on the pastel eggs hiding around the store.  I got the shoes, drink, bicycle and clutter you see on the ground there, all for free!  There are piles of other free gifts in the boxes too, so you’re sure to find something you love.

The Cies Island egg hunt is running until April 11th!

New phone, who dis?

It’s the weekend, so that obviously means that it’s time for a bit of fun.  Perhaps your plans include a bit of dancing, a bit of shopping or a bit of relaxing.  Mine involve all these things, but I’m starting off with a bit of hunting!

Weekend Hunt

Things over at Safira have been a bit quiet recently due to that pesky RL thing getting in the way.  Since that’s all calming down, they’re coming back with a bit of a hunt to kick things off!  It’s only running this weekend, and it’s quick and easy.  You’ll find lots of cute springy items that are each priced at 15L.  I picked up the Indy dress which is a pretty denim look with a cute scalloped hem that offers just the right girly punch (there’s also a floral version in the box!).  Look for the little pink “s” that is hiding throughout the store.  Don’t wait too long to take part in this hunt, it will all be gone by Monday!

Journal Musing

Journal Musing

I was having a conversation with Arielle yesterday about how much we both love stationery.  I am the sticker queen (I have far too many to ever use, but they just make me happy) and she is the pen queen.  We’ve both come to the realization, however, that we’re both obsessed with journals.  You know, the really pretty ones that you have no idea what you’re going to write in, but you still buy it because *sssooooo prettyyyyy*.  Yeah, well now I’ve got journals in SL that I surely won’t write in, but I have to have anyway!

Non-Sequitur

My little journal rant has nothing to do with my outfit (I mean, other than the journals I’m holding, obviously), but my sweet top and skirt were putting me in the mood for being artistic and such.  They’re the latest group gift from Maai, and they’re completely free.  Aren’t the little heart buttons adorable?  I can’t even.  Join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor at the landing point and they’re all yours!

Not in the Mood

Not in the Mood
Some days call for a bit of hiding, and a lot of calories.  I have pulled out my phone and ordered everything under the sun that might make me feel just a little bit better.  Apparently that runs the gamut from French patisserie to good ol’ hamburgers.  I’m just not in the mood, y’all!

For a Limited Time!

I’m sure my mood is for a limited time only, just like my exciting deal for you today.  Salt & Pepper are celebrating their anniversary with a free group join until February 3rd.  They have lots and lots of group gifts out on their gift wall, so this temporary free-ness is completely something you need to make happen!  I picked up this sweater that encapsulates my mood rather well (you may have seen it previously at Shop & Hop back before Christmas – but it’s a group gift at the mainstore now!).  There are four different textures for you to play around with and many many other lovely gifts where that came from!

A Bit of Space

A Bit of Space

Time to get outside for some fresh air, FabFree!  I think I definitely need a bit of open space, some movement and to feel the wind on my face.  I’ve been spending far too much time cramped indoors in a mostly uncomfortable chair staring at a screen, so a bit of movement is on the menu today!

I Ador-sy It!

Adorsy are celebrating their move to a new sim with a new group gift!  This cute tunic and leggings can be customized with so many different colours that you’ll be playing around for ages.  You also have the option of removing the leggings, so you can turn this into a cute and slouchy dress to give you a nonchalant sexy look.  To get yours, join the Adorsy group for 30L, pay the vendor 1L (it will be returned to you immediately) and voilà!  All yours.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy

You may also find some items on sale in the shop while you’re there, but word on the street is that today is the last day for the discounts!

Off I go!

Every Day’s Clutter

Every Day's Clutter

There’s nothing I like better than random, pretty clutter.  I love piles of cute things to look at, and I love rearranging them on furniture until I can see it all and it tumbles at me gracefully.  I had so much fun putting this scene together that I quite lost track of time today!

Classy and Sassy

The January group gift has made its appearance at Sass, and it’s super cute.  It’s this grey and yellow babydoll dress that strikes a nice balance between cute but still utterly wearable in grey and yellow.  It’s a little breath of spring in the midst of winter for me, so I highly appreciate it.  You can grab this lovely dress by joining the Sass group for 10L and then paying the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  You may also want to grab the Teleport Hub version of the dress too while you’re there, that group is just 10L to join as well, so do check it out.

I Heart It!

When Astralia announced their latest group gift was a super cute desk and chair set, I knew I had to have it.  It’s adorable and girly in all the right ways.  The desk is heart-shaped, and it comes with a matching chair that kinda has me feeling a bit “Alice in the court of the Queen of Hearts”.  Just a vibe I’m getting!  Grab your own by joining the Astralia group for 149L, then you can dress up your desk area too!

Now, where did my fries go?

A Trip to Ontiville

A Trip to Ontiville

Well, my dear readers – time for something a little different today!  Have you ever thought that you’d like to have a little spot to live in SL, but you’re not exactly flush or in the position to spend Lindens?  There are people who totally understand and have created an awesome experience and sim that can get you just that…without the cash!

Ontiville!

I was IMed the other day by the lovely Elba while I was doing my rounds and she told me all about the new sim her and her partner have been working on.  It’s called Ontiville, and it’s goal is to create a community where you can be provided with free rent and goods for those who aren’t in the position to spend Lindens.  How does that work, you ask?  Well, it means that you can get a virtual job in their city, complete quests, or afk in a coin hotspot to earn city coin.  You can even explore the sim to find some hidden coins!  Sounds like a lot of fun to me, and could be an excellent experience for those who are looking for ways to spend their time in SL.  Elba also mentioned that the first week of rental is a free trial – which is pretty darn cool.   Do check out Ontiville, and see what they’ve got going on.  I was accosted by some friendly residents while I was there and got a very nice feel from the place.  If you’re looking for more info, you can check out their website HERE

Oh, and a Freebie

I also thought I’d mention that the Lucky Boards at Tentacio have been changed out, and four new ones with cute accessories are there just waiting for the taking.  No need to join a group, these boards are free for everyone!  I got this pile of magical books and beakers while I was there which fit in perfectly with the little book shop behind me.  Good luck!

See you in Ontiville!

The Kawaii Energy

The Kawaii Energy

There’s a mall where I live that specializes in all things Asian.  You can get pretty much anything you need from that part of the world there (weirdly flavoured chips, Hello Kitty toasters, and as many sea cucumbers as your heart desires).  Back in the early 2000s, I went there with a good friend of mine and was introduced to the joys of insanely adorable stickers and stationery from Japan and Korea.  There’s not as much of it nowadays, it’s all mostly been replaced by cell phone covers – but I’m always trying to recapture the colourful girly-ness of it all!

Super Kawaii

Energy Weekend price is in full effect, which is exciting in itself (we love a good deal), but along with all the fun shopping also comes a few very nice free group gifts for those who join the free Energy Weekend Price group.  If you’d like to grab the HUD with all the info, you can head to the Buyer’s Room HERE.   I did so, and found all the info about this weekend’s free gifts quite easily.  My first stop was Absen where I got this semi-transparent dress (and matching boots, btw).  Very nice indeed!  Then what really got me in the Kawaii mood was this fun aura by Amazing.  There are three versions in the box, but I opted for the cute hearts, flowers and pandas.  They’ll trail behind you as you walk and fall about you if you’re just standing around.  Fun!  It’s all free – but only for the weekend, so don’t delay!

Macarons + Me = Love

Macarons + Me = Love

If there is one thing I love with an unsurpassed passion, it is the completely and utterly un-humble macaron.  I could wax poetic for hours about their crispy yet chewy exterior, the creamy interior, or the flavours galore.  But really, the best thing about macarons to me is the fact that they are so perfectly pretty, so inescapably charming, and entirely frivolous in every way.  Their penchant for pastel makes me gleeful any time they are near.  Le sigh.  What were we talking about again?  Oh right…freebies!

Pink and Perfect

This salacious dress from Kaithleen’s is entirely impractical in RL, but utterly wearable in SL.   Don’t you just love the dichotomy of it all?   Happily, you can grab this fun outfit for free over at The Free Dove!  It was recently added to their extremely large collection of freebies, which you’ll have plenty of fun getting lost in.  Join their group for free, and you’ll get this pretty dress as well as a green version, with loads and loads of other gorgeous gifts too.  Yay!
