She’s a Little Runaway

Runaway_002

“No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head”

“Oh, she’s a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
All those things he couldn’t say
Ooh, she’s a little runaway”

I captured this picture and thought… now this is the outfit I would like to runaway in! And who knows, maybe you would like to runaway in it too! Of course it would be great for a date night or just casual wear, but if not… runaway, runaway!

Autumn Gift

It’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here! Paisley Daisy put out their autumn group gift to celebrate. The group join fee is just 50L and the creator puts out a monthly gift to make it worth joining. I love this sweet chocolate dress that is this month’s gift! It comes in several sizes to fit mesh bodies, including regular fitmesh sizes XS – XL, plus Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza sizes.

New Hair!

Like clockwork, KoKoLoReS has set out their monthly group gift, proving once again that their join fee is worth it. This month is the pretty gift hair called “Jin” which I am wearing in the picture above. It includes a hud of natural colors as well. It’s a flirty style and would work well for casual days and flirty nights, and it fit my catwa head without any adjusting.

Well I’m off! I still feel like running away for the day! Who knows what adventures I will get into… but I can’t wait to find out! Happy shopping and gift hunting!

Something extra

I also stopped by E. Vary as one of their make up gifts had caught my eye. I love my current Maya applier that I’d picked up as a free gift (no longer available sorry!), it’s my new favorite, but I wanted a “pick me up” for it and decided that it needed a fresh look. E. Vary has out the Ilusion Gift as their free SL Frees & Offers gift. Just don your tag and pick it up for free. It’s an omega system applier make up.

I did discover that you either have to applier the lipstick or the eye-shadow and I wasn’t able to figure out how to apply both at the same time, but for free, I still feel the gift was well worth it. I donned one of the pretty lipstick shades to add to my look. I’ve included a picture of the HUD below to show you what all you will be getting with this free gift!

By the Sea

By the Sea_003

Sometimes I prefer to browse the Marketplace for goodies when I’m in that “stay at home” mood. I found a couple of nice Marketplace gifties that are sure to brighten your day. Once I was ready to explore, I finished off with a group gift from one of my favorite Steampunk stores!

The perfect outfit

In doing a little Marketplace hunting I ran across this ZHO outfit by Petry Shop. It includes a shirt and skirt as separate pieces with nice detailing and great geometric textures! For only 20L, I snapped it up and didn’t have to leave my linden home. 🙂

Outfit sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Strike a pose

I also picked up a gift pose from a little Marketplace store called Naomi Shop. This pose, called Naomi Gift Pose, is perfect for photography, and is just 10 little linden. If you take pictures in Second Life, you’ll want to add it to your inventory!

My pretty seahorse necklace is a free group gift by Pixel Box. You join the Pixel Box group free, don your new group tag, and pick up this pretty necklace. It includes a texture change hud, which I’ve included a picture of below so you can see the variety of choices you have!

As an extra special touch, the necklace is mesh body sized, and includes sizes to fit the following mesh body types: TMP, eBody, Maitreya, Eve (Slim & Pulpy), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus), Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Tonic.

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!

New to Me!

Sunrise_001

New to me!

I found this great little shop called Alien Gizmo. It must have been around for a while because there was a little wall of group gifts with some awesome dresses and tops and outfits all free for the taking with your free Alien Gizmo group tag. I picked up the December group gift called Geri, but there were lots of recent group gifts that were just as nice! You’ll be trying on new things for a while if you’ve not been to this shop before.

Geri comes with a color change hud for several really cute styles to suit your tastes (I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this blog to show you the other colors), and I love the unique cut-out design of the top that makes this mini-dress uber sexy! It also comes in a variety of mesh sizes to fit all your mesh body needs!

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New Hair!

KoKoLoReS has out a new group gift for July! Hoorah! Just on schedule and as always, KoKoLoReS delivers, making their one-time join fee of 250L worth every penny. Like clockwork, the creator has put out a new group gift for the month. I’m sporting “Haylee” in the picture above, which is the group gift hair for July. You’ll get this un-rigged (meaning you can adjust it to fit your head) mesh hair with a hud of natural colors to fit your needs. You won’t want to miss this one.

If you haven’t already joined the group, why not start with this month! Then you’ll be ready to go for the next group gift when it comes out in August!

Happy shopping and gift hunting everyone!

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

Snowflakes Are Falling

Snowflakes

Snowflakes are falling.

I found a gift I had to show off to you. Snowflake stockings! These pretty stockings are a FREE Peace on Earth hunt gift from House of Ruby and I just fell in love with the pretty snowflake pattern on the back of the blue stockings. They have a pretty lace trim up around the thigh. For your hunting time, you’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega to suit all your mesh body needs. I took a picture of the back because these babies were too cute not to show off.

A Stop by the Cart Wash!

The back of my dress is just as pretty and is a 10L find at the Winter Cart Wash Sale. I picked up the Eve dress by Aleutia which comes with a texture change hud allowing you to choose between 5 colors for just 10 little linden. That’s a lot of dress for your money. Warning… the dress is a bit sheer. It’s lacy and pretty but if you’re modest, you might want to invest in a pair of panties or a bra to wear under it.

Sizes it comes in: Maitreya, Slink – Hourglass & Physique, TMP.

Snowflakes 2

To finish off the look.

Chop Zuey has started their 12 Days of Christmas Advent and you don’t want to miss out! There is a member only gift area (one for men and one for women) and a free to all gift area. So three gifts will be set out each day: one group gift for men and one for women and one free to all gift. The group fee is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting a lot of gifts for your join fee, and the creator is generous throughout the year too!

I picked up this texture change Fleur Delique set on Day 5 at Chop Zuey (it was a ladies group gift). Don’t worry, if you miss a day, you can still pick up past days, so if you like this jewelry set go down and pick it up. It came with a texture change hud that allowed for a myriad of color changes for each part of the necklace for so many different options. This one is well worth picking up!

Put a Star On for Me

Put a Star On My Tree_001

Getting ready for the Holiday.

I’m getting ready to wrap presents but I wrapped myself up first in this pretty T-shirt gift from Belle Epoque! It only came in one size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly, so I’m fairly sure that is the size it is meant for. It also came with a texture change hud with 6 different holiday choices for the front. My favorite was the blue shirt with the Christmas tree on the front. But you may like one of the other designs! This group gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join! You won’t have to spend a single linden!

Stopping by the Cart Wash Sale.

You’ve already seen lots of 10L goodies from the Winter Cart Wash Sale blogged by our talented bloggers! I picked up a pretty star choker by The Little Bat. The one in blue matched my t-shirt and was just perfect for the occasion. For just 10L you get a package that includes 6 colors: gold, silver, red, black, blue, and green.
