You and I

You and I

Some nights you just end up on the kitchen floor talking for hours.  Sometimes I end up on the kitchen floor wrestling with a Christmas tree and some super glue, but that’s a story for another day.   This is an evening for long chats, candlelight and the possibility of a slice of cake after.  Aren’t those the best kinds of nights?

That’s the Ydea

In my meanderings, I wandered into Ydea Style and much to my delight found a rather extensive wall of Lucky Boards.  The group is free to join, and the wall is crammed with free finds for both male and female avatars.  My cute little overalls and top, as well as Oov’s layered shirts come from there, and all that was required was a bit of patience!  I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you there too.

Female Outfit Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Male Outfit Sizes

  • Fitmesh
  • L – S and an Alpha Layer

Candelit

Apple Fall also has a new group gift – and it’s a set of jarred candles.  There are four different scents (that I wish I could actually smell…but hey such is Second Life!) and they come in both an open and shut version.  You can give the wick a little click to light the candle and it emits a very romantic glow.  The Apple Fall group is free to join, making these babies entirely free.

Set it Down

Of course, you’ll need a cute table to put these candles on, and Ishiku have got just the thing you need.  Their latest group gift is a set of side tables in several different textures (I went for worn marble) and different heights so you can make an artfully arranged display.  The Ishiku group is free to join, and you’ll find a bunch of other really awesome group gifts on the wall there too.

Play in the Paint

Play in the Paint

I’ve been going through a bit of an artistic phase.  Some phases are a bit more prevalent than others, but since I’ve been spending much more time at home (as one does these days), I’ve been picking up my paintbrush a bit more often than I had been doing in the past.  I’m a great proponent of making lemonade out of lemons, so my rediscovered love of making art falls squarely into the making the best of it category!  I picked up a few fun, free finds today that really reminded me of how happy I am that I’ve got loads of paint to be creative with.

Hunting Time

It’s time for this month’s edition of The Free Dove hunts!  The featured designers this time around are Ydea Style and Shiny Stuffs.  The way this hunt works is that you have to join the free Free Dove group, then look for 5 hidden items at The Free Dove, and 5 at both Ydea Style and Shiny Stuffs!  If you’re searching for goodies from Ydea Style, then you’re looking for a little cupcake, and if it’s Shiny Stuffs you’re hankering for, then look for the little powder compact.  It’s all free, and it’s all fab!  I got this jean skirt from the offerings of  Ydea Style, and the shirt and sparkly tears come courtesy of Shiny Stuffs.  Take a peek at the hunt keys below!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Isis (skirt only)

 

You’ve got until May 31st to take part, so happy hunting!

Colour Blast

Colour Blast

I love a good colour explosion.  There’s something to be said for the magical mood-boosting power of purple, pink…and uh…everything else!

Free Like a Dove

There are always fun things to pick up over at The Free Dove.  When you join their free group, you gain access to looooads of free goodies.  I always have a good time looking around to see what’s new, or putting together a new outfit from things I find there.  I picked up two freebies today:

  • FREE Dress by Ydea sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP and XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • FREE Bag by My Bags

There are about 40 million (at least it feels like 40 million…) other awesome items to pick up there, so go have some fun!

Gavin Plays the Guitar

Blogging soon!

Ydea Style currently has this complete outfit out as a group gift for the fellas. The group is free to join, and includes the 2 shirts, pants, and shoes. There’s another fun thing in the box, which I’ll show you later in this post. 🙂 Oh, and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey Couture. There is one for either wrist – or both!

Blogging soon!

Three great freebies here: first, my skin is a free gift from ::Bite&Claw::. There is also a women’s gift in the box, which Serena showed here. My necklace is an older gift from RONSEM*, which was originally shown here by Love. It’s still available, so if you didn’t already pick it up, you still can! Finally, my eyes are a group gift from Madrid Solo Cosmetics. You need to join the group and check the notices to find the eyes… but they were posted a while ago, so don’t delay! There are also a couple of cosmetic gifts for both men and women available at the in-world store, so be sure to head over and scoop them up!

Remember when I said there was another fun thing in the Ydea box? Well, here it is! The outfit comes with this guitar prop, which, when you attach it, plays this lively guitar-playing animation. I decided that a still photo did not do the animation justice, so I decided to make this little piece of machinima. It’s my first attempt ever, and I know it’s pretty awful, but I think you get the idea. Oh, the guitar does not play music; I added it to the video. Enjoy! 😀
