I’m Blossom-ing

finesmith_mar4_001f

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! I’ve been dying to see some spring, so I decided to show you this gorgeous Blossom gown and headpiece, which are the March group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. 🙂 And just as I was finishing up these photos, I got a note that the April group gift is out at Finesmith, so be sure to pick that one up too, while you’re there! My pose is from the March gift pack at Diesel Works Animations, originally shown by Skyler here. Be sure to grab yours before the gift is gone!

Blogging soon!

This pretty Mimi skin by Belleza is still available at The Arcade Gacha Event. I’m wearing makeup #3 (rare); Love showed #9 here. I have added a glossy lipstick by Lumae, which you can find in a free pack of 6 colors at The Skin Fair. Last day for both events is TODAY, so hurry over! BTW, I am smiling ever-so-slightly for the FabFree Photo Challenge #7: Show Us Your Smile. Sadly, I’m a day late for the challenge, but hey, better late than never, right? 😀

Maai New Group Gift

Just a quickie to show you this adorable sweet lingerie set from Maai. I couldn’t resist teaming it with a white pearl jewellery set I found on the Marketplace from Maxi Gossamer for a bargain price!

A quick note also.. This lingerie set IS transparent but I made it slightly more modest to hide my blushes and anyone elses who might be looking through the blog!

A hint for those who want items that were part of big gacha events such as The Arcade Gacha, is to check around Gacha yard sales. Alot of people use them to sell on their multiple gacha wins and you can find some great items here.. even things you didnt know you were looking for!

One good list of yard sales to use is this list from Seraphim. Also search “gacha yard sale” or “gatcha yard sale” in SL Search.. one other thing is DON’T FORGET to pick up your purchases once you buy them! They are usually not in vendors and so you are purchasing the actual item.. right click and choose “TAKE” from the menu!

Do I have a super hero alter ego? Maybe..

While finishing up the pictures for some of the things I found earlier today, it occured to me that they almost kind of resembled the movie “My Super Ex-Girlfriend”! Haha!

shoulders, crown, wings,

chest piece, leg pieces and arm pieces,

as well the paint layer pieces as well. 

It includes both Phat Azz and Tango appliers,

as well as baby, petite, and titan versions.

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…

Blogging soon!

Although I don’t actually do any SL role-playing (yet), I really love the role-play “dress up” events, and We ❤ Role-Play! is one of my favorites. Here, I’m wearing Hilda’s Kirtle and Hilda’s Cloak by {Junbug}. As with all of {Junbug’s} offerings, the textures are amazing, and this one is even materials-enabled. Items are We ❤ Role-Play! are discounted for the duration of the event, so if you like any of them, be sure to pick them up before the prices go up! My lantern/pose is a gacha prize from LISP Bazaar at The Arcade; Care showed it earlier in this post, but I couldn’t resist showing it myself. 😀

Blogging soon!

There are bunches of gifts under the We ❤ Role-Play! Christmas trees, and I’m wearing two of them here. My tattoo, which reads, “There is no fate but what we make,” is a free gift from Aeva//Heartsick. It comes with black and white, as well as colored, stars. This beautiful jewelry – earrings and Maang Tikka – is a free gift from !!Sax Shepherd Designs. It is HUD-driven, with 4 different metals and 8 different jewels. Not all the gifts are free though – some are just very inexpensive – but be sure to head over and pick up the ones you want before this fun event ends. 🙂

Cosy Winter Wanderings

I just love winter coats. There is nothing better than snuggling up in a thick warm coat.. the fancier the better.. Then going out for a long stroll in the winter weather! If you are looking for a wintery coat so you can get ready for your wanderings through the many gorgeous snowy sims in SL this season, then these two should fit the bill perfectly!

First off, Innuendo have put out a beautiful creamy white fur collar coat as their December Group Gift. If you have a male friend who is wanting to walk the snowy paths with you, then fear not! There is a male version available too in the male section of clothing!

Secondly, there is a twist in the tale to this beautiful victorian inspired Winter Coat from NS Cutie Store. It comes with a HUD that allows you to change the coats colours to four different choices! All of this for only L$1? Yes please! Im showing you the grey colour, but there is Red, White and a Chocolate colour to choose from also!

Photo Challenge #1 – Naughty or Nice? – Which List Are You On?

Im a bit of a forever child. Im sure I’ll never grow up! Add that to Christmas and Im a bouncing ball of excitement. Its my most favourite time of the year.. the time when people are just that little bit nicer to each other and the magic and sparkle that is always in the world is seen by more than just a few who can see it throughout the year.

Being a forever child though comes with its drawbacks.. Impatience is the worst of them and I never really did learn to have any even after one Christmas when I was a little girl…

Every year we would be given Advent Calenders by my parents.. usually ones that had a piece of chocolate behind each door for every day leading up to Christmas. Well, children and chocolate and having to wait to have to open doors to get that piece of chocolate, isn’t always a good mix! I remember one Christmas when I was around 10 years old, I took matters into my own hands! I sneaked downstairs in the middle of the night and carefully opened the top of the Advent Calender, trying so hard not to rip the box. I slid out the foil covered tray inside and poked my finger through to get a few more chocolates.. then slipped it back in and sealed it up before running back upstairs to bed, gleeful at my success as I devoured my chocolate prizes while under the covers.

I did this again the next night.. a few more down! Was it really this easy? My parents never suspected a thing as you couldn’t see it had been tampered with from the outside as no doors were open that shouldn’t have been and they never watched me opening the next door the following mornings so they didn’t know there wasn’t anything there. The next night however, I was caught out by my Dad who had come down to get a glass of water! Busted! I got a bit of a telling off, but in the end he was more amused than annoyed and he kept my secret from my Mom who never found out.. on one condition, that I would eat the chocolate every day as it was supposed to be and try to learn some patience!

+++++

If you want your own Advent Calender this year then Trompe Loeil have this gorgeous one as a FREEBIE at The Arcade Gacha Event. It is to be used in conjunction with the keys that you win from their gacha machine there, but even if you don’t play, it makes a beautiful Christmas decoration!

Patience really is a good lesson to learn when playing Gachas!
