I Can Hear Them Whisper

I can hear them whisper

I can’t believe that Blueberry has been around for 10 years! That’s an eternity in SL time. There are various happenings at the store in celebration and you definitely don’t want to miss them, so allow me to enumerate. 

New Gift

There’s a new group gift at the Blueberry main store and oh my is it pretty. It’s called Decade and included is a dress version and a shirt version. I’m wearing the dress here. There’s also a very extensive HUD for all of your customization needs – the group notice says it’s 37 colors and 18 patterns! Not to mention options for things like button and panty color. Oh! I wanted to mention the panties too. Yes, I just exclaimed over free panties. They are a separate piece and will certainly be useful under other outfits as well. Bonus gift!

Sizes:

  • Ebody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Store Credit

There is a free 500L store credit that you will find in the Blueberry group notices. When you attach it and click to apply the funds to your store credit balance, there’s a popup that the credit will expire in 3 weeks. it certainly won’t last that long though! Because…

Sale!

There’s also a sale going on and the entire store at Blueberry is 50% off. So if you use your credit now you can get twice as much stuff. Math! I’ve found that I’m a sucker for shoes that lace up the leg and I grabbed these Solstice sandals (which you can only see the very top of) in a fatpack – we’re talking flat/high feet, height options for the laces from ankle to knee and clear up to thigh, and lots of colors. A whole fatpack at half price was only 225L but free with my giftcard, so I was able to grab a couple of other cute pieces as well!

The sale started on Saturday and will last for 5 days, so I guess until Thursday-ish? The good news is that, if you can’t get there for the sale, the credit is in group notices and Blueberry leaves up their old group gifts so the gift will probably remain available. It’s 20L to join Blueberry‘s group but you’re already in it so no problem there, right? And if not, that’s 20L very well spent. Happy Anniversary Blueberry!

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

Nothing's Gonna Stop Us NowOh hey, here’s some good stuff. In this one little post there are two groups with free gifts, both groups are free to join (one only temporarily), free store credit, and a free pose. What more could you need?

Stardust

Stardust is a lovely shop full of tattoos, poses, and makeup. And the group is free to join. And once you’ve joined, you’ll have access to a wall of free group gifts. That’s where I got the pose that I’m using today! The poses are fun and a bit dramatic while still being natural and realistic, plus each also comes in a mirror version and in a pose ball. It’s nice to have options.

Beauty Factory

The Beauty Factory group is free to join but only for a limited time. It’s definitely a group worth getting in and staying in while it’s free though, in my opinion. Here you’ll find nice variety and quality, a room of past group gifts, and new group gifts pretty frequently. Right now there’s a free group gift in the form of a 500L store credit in honor of Mother’s Day!  The credit will be available until May 7th and the group will be free to join for the same amount of time. You do need to use the credit by May 7th, but that shouldn’t be too hard. I picked out this cute sweater and skirt in no time and still had some change to spare.

Yeah I’m Free

Yeah I'm Free

My shopping has been a bit too much “sale” and not enough “gift” lately, if you know what I mean. So I decided that the best way to bring things back into balance would be with a trip to Free Dove!

There was a bit of buzz here on the blog and in the inworld group chat a couple of months ago about Free Dove. The shopping area has been completely redone and updated. If you haven’t been there recently either, goooo. Free Dove is so great, for newer avis just as much as for seasoned ones like me (yes I’m seasoned ahem) who like freebs from great designers. You’ll need to join the free group and then start clicking. Pretty soon you’ll be rolling in free gifts. Here’s what I picked up for this look:

  • Free Top – A perfect summer top, with a fun hippie twist. This fringe top by FurtaCor will be easy to wear all summer and, let’s face it, for some of us it’s always summer SL! Included is a HUD full of colors and patterns to pick from as well as sizes for:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Maitreya
    – Physique
    – Venus 
  • Free Tattoo – I’m not typically a fan of color tattoos in SL, but these are so pretty and feminine and well done! It’s by Vezzo Ink and comes in various shades, I always pick the lightest because I feel like tattoos look a bit more realistic when they’re faded.
  • Free Skin – I might have squeed when I tried on this skin, an audible squee. It’s so lovely and just the fresh faced natural style that I go for. It is by Magnetic which was a happy surprise because they weren’t really on my radar before, but you can bet I’ll be searching for their mainstore very soon. This one is the head and body all together too which is always handy, as well as a shape (which I didn’t try on) and 4 skin tones – each in a brow/browless option and bodies for Maitreya and Legacy.

Yes, it’s a whole lot of free, and all seems right in the world again. ❤

Put It All On Me

Put it all on meThe 10th anniversary round of the Fameshed event started on Sunday! The setup is a little different this round and the space has been divided into four “quadrants,” with each quadrant having a discount area. You’re looking for a cute little patio type area set up with tables and chairs, covered in gift boxes. In the boxes are items discounted to 50L-75L. 

I couldn’t resist this sweet little outfit by Neve. Seriously, how cute and summery and perfect is this set? The lacey details just sealed the deal for me. The top and shorts come together for just 50L but can be worn separately, and each also has a HUD of 4 different patterns/colors. There are sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

Fameshed runs till May 27th.

P.S. My pose is a free group gift from Cuca Designs and it does not require a group join. There’s a nice little wall of single and couples poses, all for free …I’m using half of a couples pose here that I just pulled apart because I liked it by itself too.

Let Me Play Among The Stars

Let Me Play Among the Stars

Happy weekend, Fab to the Free! We made it! I don’t know about you, but I’m going to celebrate with some weekend sale shopping. I’ve already picked up a couple of things and I’m about to head out and see what else is out there. My favorite resource for various day-of-the-week sale shopping is seraphimsl.com – it’s so handy to see everything in one place with the galleries and whatnot.

Meow

I snatched up this super sexy and well made top and shorts at Candy Kitten. They were only 60L each as part of the Happy Weekend and if you’d prefer different colors there are a handful of others to pick from as well. Yes, please. Each comes in sizes for:

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Bell Bell

Once again I did not think through my subtitle strategy. A youtube video for children that popped up in my quick google search says that deer say “Bell Bell.”  So here we are at Bell Bell… Because I got the cuuuuute hair that I’m wearing over at Doe for 50L Friday. Only 50L for some really nice color packs full of variety. Yes, please, again!

Pretty good start to the weekend, huh? See you at the sales!

Float On

And we'll all float on, okayYou guys, I bought 3 new hairstyles this weekend. THREE! Somebody HELP! But they were all on sale, and I balanced them out with looooots of free things…at least that’s what I tell myself.

Swinging

One of the free things in evidence is this super cute swing, which is one of the new group gift from Reka Nutmeg. It contains a few poses each for girls, guys, and even a cuddle. Just simple, sweet cuteness. You can get it for free by joining the free Reka group and going to grab it in the store with the other free group gifts. I had forgotten how many top quality gifts this creator has out. There are some other really lovely things to grab up for free while you’re there!

Gloom

I popped over to Abstrakt to have a look for myself after I saw Aline’s post about the gifts there. You can see her post HERE, for all of the event details. I absolutely fell in love with this skin from Gloom. It’s a free gift at Abstrakt that you can pick up at Gloom’s booth after joining the free event group. It comes in a nice variety of shades (I’m wearing the beige) and with or without brows. The thing that gets me about Gloom skins is the little imperfections, like the slight shading under the eyes. It’s just done so well and gives it a touch of realism that makes me feel things. You’re probably thinking, “Oh my gosh, she’s getting all gushy about undereye bags” but seriously it’s just so very natural and pretty. Maybe it’s not the hair addiction that I need help for, after all…

The Hair

Oh but hey, mentioning hair, this is one of the styles that I acquired over the weekend. It’s from Rama.Salon and available for on 75L as part of the Saturday Sale. I don’t know how much longer it will stay on sale, but I just checked and it still is now! Get it at the discounted price while you can. ❤

The Very First Page

The Very First Page
Hi There! Just doing one of my favorite things in SL (and RL, come to think of it), lounging by some water. And if that can involve laying on a tube in a cute suit then that is definitely a win in my book!

Pink Cream Pie‘s offering for the Saturday Sale is this very cute suit indeed! There is an assortment of fruit patterns to pick from and avocado almost had me, but I’m a berry girl at heart. It’s still out but hurrrry because I don’t know how much longer it will be available at the sale price. Each pattern is only 75L.

Psssst…here’s a secret – I got mine for free! If you’re in the Pink Cream Pie group (which is 314L to join), you’ll get a store credit every month, in addition to access to lucky boards and tons of other gifts. And the store credit can be used on sale items! Pretty great, right? Yup, it’s a good day to float on a tube.

How Far Will You Go?

How Far Will You Go?OMG There are so many fantastic Easter hunts going on right now. Even I can’t get through Easter without a little bit of hunting. For example, Vision is having an Easter Hunt and the prizes are all store credit! If that’s not a reason to hunt then I don’t know what is.

The Prize

It’s true, I don’t typically hunt. Like at all. Ever. I rarely even cherry pick anymore, but for Vision store credit I will make an exception. No, I did not find all of the eggs. They really weren’t that hard to find either, so not finding them all is purely a reflection on me and my inability to hunt. BUT I found enough eggs to get this gorgeous dress called Kristine (it comes with the necklace too!) for free using my store credits! Worth it.

The Details

The Vision hunt started on April 13th and lasts until April 18th. You do have to join the store group in order to play, but it is only 18L to join (if you’re just joining the group for the first time, be sure to also check the front wall for a wide assortment of gifts). in this hunt, you are looking for 12 eggs. When you wear your group tag and click an egg they will give varying amounts of store credit, for a totally of 500L between all 12 eggs. The store credit does expire and must be used by April 23rd. And here’s a helpful hint: a notice sent to the group mentioned that all 12 eggs are in the lower floor of the store. That ought to narrow things down for you a bit!

Happy Hunting!

Say You’ll Remember Me

Say You'll Remember MeOkay so full disclosure: I don’t know how or why or even when I ended up at Sentinus and/or picked up these free gifts. All I know is that they were in my inventory and they’re fantastic. Let me set the scene – there I was, spending a lazy evening unpacking forgotten things in my inventory. A blanket over my lap and a puppy snoozing against my leg. Really a night like so many others, unpacking and trying on under the ruse of “sorting inventory” but mostly it’s a dress up session. I came across quite a few folders marked Sentinus. The name didn’t ring any bells but the clothes, oh the clothes. Sexy, nice quality, fun design…and then a blog post was born.

Stop Being Weird

Yeah okay, sorry. The shoes and dress that I’m wearing are free group gifts at Sentinus. The group is free to join and there are a handful of free group gifts available. I love a sexy little mini that’s got some distinctive styling. This one is called Elif and I didn’t even need to accessorize, it’s got enough interest all on it’s own. The free gift includes the dress in red and black and sized for:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

The heels match so well with their own fun little added details. They are sized for:

  • Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Isis

Oh and guess what else? You’ll never guess. I’ll just tell you. This hair was a free group gift at Sentinus as well! It’s not for the Sentinus group though, it’s a free gift for the group “Maitreya Gifts Sales & News” which is also free to join. You’ll get the fitted mesh updo in a variety of colors.
