Hey there!

Before I begin, I’d just like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and that I hope you had a great one! As for myself, I’m pretty excited to continue my adventures in Second Life; who knows what kind of fun and freebies 2017 will bring! Even with the festivities behind us, I was still in the mood for bright colors and knitwear and was very pleased to see that the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Marquesse Pret a Porter was a great mix of both. The Paige shirt was certainly a welcomed addition to my virtual wardrobe and not only for its vivid color (which is perfect for when you’re in the mood for color blocking by the way) but also for its fun and flirty design. Best of all, you can have this off shoulder little number for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group (no join fee required). Simply cut and paste the following link into the main chat box in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link when it pops up in main chat. Aforementioned link is; secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and if you’ve just joined us, welcome to the group!

Coming to a close

With the Winter Cart sale at the Wash coming to an end today, this is the last chance for you to pick up some goodies for yourself and your friend for just 10 L. I’ve recently purchased a new pair of Slink hands (finally something to cross off that bucket list) and thought that it was about time that I got a manicure. Pictured is the Diti Gold Omni set from La Boheme and the package includes a manicure set for Maitreya as well as a manicure and pedicure set for Slink and Omega.

I also stopped by the Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes cart at the Wash to pick up to pick up this gorgeous pair of boots. I own a similar pair in the real world and am always tickled when I get to dress the avatar in a similar fashion. You don’t need prim feet for this pair and the package includes a nifty alpha mask and shoe base to help with the fit.

My little friend

I stumbled upon this cute little guy on the Marketplace and thought to include him in the picture because our outfits matched (lol). For just 0L you can get a Baby Polar Bear for yourself too at the Meli Imako Marketplace store. The bear itself comes in both standing and sitting positions (shown) as well as AO, UV, Normals, Specular maps and textures. Full disclosure, as I haven’t gotten into building in SL yet, I’ve no idea what all of those are but the polar bear is cute and I’ve always had a thing for keeping odd animals around the house…

Speaking of, with two cats, several owls and now this little guy, I’m going to have to find a place that sells kibble for them all. Until next time guys!

Plum for Christmas

Plum for Christmas

Going back to knitwear.

So far I’ve been having so much fun rooting around the grid to find interesting pieces of knitwear. There are so many different designs but then again I shouldn’t be surprised as creativity in Second Life runs rampant. Today I’m going to be showing you the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit in plum that you can win from the mischievous Kraken at Graffitiwear. You’ll need to wear your group tag in order to wrestle and/or cajole prizes from Mr. Kraken and if you’re not already a member there is a group join fee of 5L. Prizes from the Kraken changes out weekly however and the group tag gives you access to Lucky and Midnight Mania boards that are changed out just as often. You’ll also be receiving monthly group gifts, Graffitiwear’s December group gift was blogged {HERE} by Astrid if you’d like to take a gander at what it is, so with all these goodies it’s definitely worth the 5L to join. Once you’ve gained the upper hand from that Kraken you’ll find that the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit caters to both classic avatars and those with mesh bodies.

Layers for classic bodies include:

  • Bodysuit top: Shirt and Jacket layer
  • Bodysuit bottom: Pants and Underwear layer
  • Sleeve lengthening: Glove layer (not worn in picture)

The appliers provided in the prize package are:

  • Master applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system.
  • Gloves applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system. (not worn in picture)
  • TMP Hud

I really adore the deep plum color of this body suit but that’s second only to the ruffles that give it its name. They give the whole bodysuit a feminine and unique quality and I almost feel like a fairy while wearing it. The best part about the prim ruffles is that permission to copy and modify them are enabled so you can experiment with their position and size on your avatar’s body easily and also make copies in case there’s a mess. All in all I’m really happy with this find so hurry down to Graffitiwear before Mr.Kraken eats up this gift for good.

Speaking of faeries.

If you’ve read Kat’s post {HERE}, you’ll notice the lovely antlered hair that she has on. That head turning hairstyle is eXxEsS hair store’s past Christmas group gift and I’m happy to report that eXxEsS has continued this tradition and is offering a free hairstyle for this season as well with this whimsical baubled hairdo. I adore the Christmas ornaments decorating this sweeping hairstyle and was happy to see that there is a Hud available to customize the ornaments to suit your mood and outfit. Speaking of customization there are two sets of hair available in the gift package and they come with their own extensive color Hud as well as options to enable breeze and materials or both together. I tried on the breeze option and it looked as if the wispy bangs were moving in the wind and that only means more photo opportunities! To add this beautiful hairstyle to your collection simply head down to eXxEsS‘ main store and buy it for 0L.

Two words for you, Cart. Sale.

If you’ve noticed Love’s post {HERE} you’d know that The Wash Winter Cart Sale has begun! I missed the Summer sale at The Wash and am very, very excited to check out the 10L deals for this current sale. I appreciate that some items are transferable so that you can purchase some great but inexpensive gifts for your friends! On one of my very first rounds around the sim, I found the Belenda boots by Sage and the first thing that caught my eye was that it was both compatible with mesh as well as classic feet. The second thing that caught my eye was the fact that there were twelve (pink worn in the picture) different color options available on top of an easy to use Hud that lets you customize the studs at the boot’s heel. Needless to say, I fell in love with these boots right away and am very happy with not only the leather texture and vivid colors but the price as well. Great quality for 10L? Count me in!

I’ll leave you with ad for these boots so that you can get a look-see at all the colors you’ll be getting with your purchase.
