Flower Child

With the huge Heat Wave Event going on at the Wash, it’s easy to forget that there’s a whole Grid out there full of fun stuff and bargains. I took a break and popped over to the Arcade Gacha to see what’s new and boy, I was in for a treat!

Flower Child

This is the “Ruffle Bikini top” from U.F.O. in purple, my favorite color! I love the shine of the fabric and the sweet feminine ruffle. It’s sexy without being overboard.  Then I made my way over to the Clawtooth machine for the “Summertime Sweetheart” gacha. When I pulled the “Exquisite Reds” with the purple and blue daisy chain, I knew I had an outfit I needed to show off!  Remember the denim mini from Mrs. B’s Design’s Cart at the Heat Wave Event I mentioned before? This is it. I absolutely love it when a plan comes together.

The Arcade runs until June 30th and the Heat Wave Event is only till June 10th!

Hazy Shade of Winter

Hello my dears, I hope you’re staying warm and cozy if it’s snowy where you are like it is here. But just because it’s cold and blustery doesn’t mean you can’t show off some style! Ur.Favorite.One or U.F.O has put out a lovely group gift for us: the Bang Bang Dress. This cozy knit dress comes in two colors a soft beige and this winter white. While I was at U.F.O I played a few of their in-store gachas and ended up with these adorable flats, the Toe Point Flat Shoe in

UFO_001

After I perused U.F.O’s cute shop, I headed over to Izzie’s to pick up these ‘Heart Tattoo’ tights. The tights are Izzy’s free-for-everyone gift celebrating the store’s anniversary. The tights come with ten colors of hearts to match a lot of outfits. And I topped everything off with my scarf from Mr. Poet . I do so love it when an ‘outfit’ comes together!

Speaking of a look coming together perfectly… Just as I was heading out to take the pictures for this post, Mayfly set out their new group gift: these Liquid Light eyes in Stormy Teal.  They come in system eyes with 4 levels of white and a complete set of mesh eyes as well. Aren’t they lovely!

Circles In The Sand

Hello everyone! I am sure you must have heard about the amazing new gifts at Essences and Song that were released last night at the reopening of the new refurbished stores! They were the talk of many a group chatter and so today I am showing you what you can find if you havent already run along to snap them up!

The Jamie skin is the gift from Essences and comes in 6 tones. In the picture below I am wearing the Pale 2 tone which is a gorgeous milky tone with a beautiful luminescence to it. The skins come both with and without cleavage and also includes a teeth tattoo layer.

The gorgeous Circle Eyes by Song come in a fatpack of 8 colours. I am wearing the Brown colour but there are lots of other choices. I particularly also like the Aqua eye so I will most likely be swapping these around with my usual eyes in the future! There are normal system eyes and mesh options included!

Here is a portion of the poster for the eyes which shows the different colours available in the fatpack!

The things I love

The things I love

Skin: Essences – Whisper
Hair: Truth – Dee
Dress: Cambridge House – Taylor Dress (1L$)
Boots: K-room – Paint Vanessa boots (1L$)
Ears: Half deer – Deer ears (FLF)
Antlers: Half deer – Metallic leaf vein antlers (SL fashion week)

It’s Friiiiiidayyyyy! Wooo! Which means deals, sales, bargains and general money-saving goodness!

First of all, my dress is 1L$ from Cambridge House on the marketplace. The store is full to bursting with dollarbies and freebies of dresses, tops and jeans for women in a myriad of colours. How does that saying go? “If the dress fits, buy it in every colour because it’s only 1L$”? I think that’s it 😉

My awesome boots are also 1L$ on the marketplace by K-room and they come with an extensive HUD which lets you change size, colour and even the  brightness of your boots!

See the tiny fellow in my hands? Well he’s an adorable little freebie you can pick up at Café Neko no mori in a big box full of adorable tiny animal avatars and accessories! The box even includes a rabbit avatar and a little seat for your new cute self! My little cat friend at my feet is named Skylar! And he’s free from the Kiyomizu hunt at the Kiyomizu mall. He’s only 2 prims and if you give him a tap, he’ll meow!

Finally, Half Deer are taking part in Fifty Linden Fridays and have these adorable fawn ears and a pretty cabinet out for 50L$ each. Not free but a good deal nonetheless! The door of the cabinet can be opened and closed and the ears are an essential for all your deer-related antics!

Props/Furniture/Decor

Cabinet: Half deer – Display cabinet (FLF)

Deer, fox, owl, squirrel: Half deer – Carved woodland animals (Arcade)

Tiny cat: Café neko no mori – Working kitty Beige (Free)

Cat: Skylar – Kawaii neko (Hunt prize)

Cage: Monaya G – birdcage white (10L$)

Follow the white rabbit!

lapine_001 copy

Skin: Hello Rabbit – Minah blossom
Hair: Truth – Renata
Dress: Rokumeikan – Lapin sur la colline (Limited Luckyboard)
Shoes: U.F.O – Inevitability lace-up boots (C88)

“What is this madness, Xanthe? Two posts in one day!?”

I know I know! Don’t get your hopes up though, this is just a quickie because I absolutely HAVE to show you this dress from Rokumeikan. The Lapin sur la colline dress is available at RMK gothic mall as a luckyboard prize in limited edition colour purple (not the one pictured, I bought the red version for this post). But there’s a catch, only 20 copies are available across two rounds so you have to be; A) Quick and; B) Lucky in order to win this gorgeous Orthodox-lolita style dress! The details are as follows;

First Round: set of 10

9/15/13  21:00 (SLT) 

9/16/13  15:00 (JST) 

Second Round: set of 10

9/16/13  05:00 (SLT)

9/16/13  23:00 (JST)

Or if you’re not feeling like either of the above then you can purchase blue, green and red versions for a respectable 400L$. But if you buy the fatpack, you get a special matching bonnet to go with each dress!

Good luck little bunnies!

We are the beautiful ones

denim_003 copy

Good afternoon everyone, hope you’re having a splendid Friday!

So I found this adorable denim blazer from The Beautiful Ones. It’s up as a free group gift and it really is a must-have. Soon the weather will start getting chillier and Blazers are the between mark for lacy summery cardigans and snuggly parka coats. I thought it matched my Luckyboard prize hat from U.F.O perfectly!

My tank top is a freebie from Poison on the marketplace. They also have a couple of jackets for men and women and a pair of jeans going for free too! Clothing layers are not yet obsolete as they make great pieces for layering under mesh clothing. Clipping will occur if you wear a mesh top under a mesh jacket but with clothing layers, your alphas will erase the areas along with the rest of your body so you don’t need to worry about your elbows poking out of your blazer!

And finally, I have my previously-mentioned Moimoi clutch bag. It comes in lots of different colours and has a colour change hud too so I can guarantee it’ll match any of your outfits.

Just a heads up, I’m away for the weekend so you won’t be seeing a post from me until Tuesday! Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Skin: Birdy – Brooke (Group gift)

Hat: U.F.O – Flower holic hat (Luckyboard)

Blazer: The beautiful ones – Denim blazer (Group gift)

Top: Poison – Rock shirt (Free)

Lucky U.F.Os

C-C-C-COMBO!

A couple really cute outfits for you today based around the items I snagged at U.F.O‘s luckyboards! These are only a couple of the items, because I waited around for 3 days to try to get the rest of them but to no avail. Maybe you’ll be luckier than I am? The first lucky item is this really cute fox sweater, it looks so soft I just couldn’t resist pairing it with some tough denim! In lucky outfit number two is this flowy pink blouse! Because it isn’t mesh, it’s ideal for layering under mesh clothing like I’ve done with my floral dungarees! There are some sweet dresses, a couple of pairs of shorts and a floral hat to win too if you’re feeling lucky!

And if you pay a visit to Nostalgia you’ll be able to win yourself a pair of dungarees at their gacha machine! Nostalgia is just filled to the brim with gacha machines, ideal for those having Arcade withdrawal symptoms like myself! The denim hat is also a gacha prize and my pink owl bag is actually a lucky board prize at the store! They have lots of cute bags in many adorable designs for you to win and I managed to grab a couple before I had to pootle off again.

The other day, Ephe showed off the group gift from Eaters coma. Well in the above outfit is one of the other free hairs you can grab. It comes in a huge fatpack of colours and has an adorable kitty headband which comes with colour change options as well. You can’t really see the kitty headband under my hat though.

Care showed off Birdy‘s group gift (50L$ join fee) skin for her TGGSH post but I just had to try it for myself, and I really like it. It’s certainly different from my usual cutesy-girly look but I think it still has a pretty feel to it.

Finally, my cute little kitty shoes are just 1L$ on the marketplace by MDL and I think they’re just so super sweet and vibrant!

Chin-up folks! The week’s half-over already!

A ::{u.f.o.}:: Sighting

Snapshot_006 *Smacks her head on the desk*… So,  I totally meant to wear these fantastic shoes the other day when I was blogging the Sassy! Color Explosion Hunt gift because they were a perfect match (shown here), but…  for some reason I tossed on another pair of red shoes!  -.- What was I thinking?  Anyways…  I found another free dress with a bit of red on it and I think they match pretty good to this one too!  This adorable mesh We Love Spring Dress is the latest group gift at ::{u.f.o.}::.  The texturing blew me away – it really looks as though it’s light and silky as you move.  The group is free to join.

Now… Onto the *squeals* SHOES!  By joining the N Core inworld group (free to join too!), you can gain access to their latest group gift shoes called “Lulu” in red.

I will kiss you forever on nights like this

You know what? Im a romantic girly girl at heart. I prefer floaty flowery dresses to wearing tight ones, slouchy boots instead of stilettoes and Dancing around in fields of flowers instead of in crowded clubs. These outfits suit the real me perfectly ❤
