There’s this little park near my house, it’s not much, just a small section where the river has a curve, there’s a tiny dock for fishing, some play equipment, and picnic tables, that’s about it, and we love it. It dips down into a tiny valley so that when you’re at the river’s edge you can’t see the city just outside the park. It’s one of our favorite places to go. My son, who has autism, just is such a different kid when he can be in nature, with the natural lighting, the music of the flowing river, the ducks, and other birds, the wind (especially when there are leaves to rustle through), that I can just relax and veg by the side of the water joyfully watching him play with the other children. And today was 54 degrees, in January! So I got home, and sort of felt like replicating it in Second Life.
FREE Group Join!
So the big news to share is that Legendaire once again has FREE group join for a limited time, saving you the 49L fee for joining. Legendaire has a huge area of past gifts over in the outlet side of the store, as well as 3 new ones in the front. There’s always a good stream of new gifts coming in as well. Not only the gifts, but joining the group keeps you in the know about the many sales offered, as low as 1 linden at times, which only stay up for an hour! Speaking of sales, there’s one going on right now with 60% off the entire store. It can kinda be like those magical days when Kohl’s and Old Navy has that extra 50% off clearance sales, where you walk out with a pair of shorts for your kid for 49 cents (yep, I do this often!) Well, this sale also includes the Outlet and Promo Sales areas! I snagged this “Yuna Jacket” with a texture change hud of 10 colors for just 38 lindens! There are a load of sizes in the box, so hardly anyone will be left out of this deal, it comes sized for all Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP Mesh bodies, there is also standard sizing xs-xl in the box with alpha layer if needed.
The Basics are as Always In Fashion
I’ve paired it with a new product from The Little Black Dress that is super affordable priced at 59 lindens. But even better, they are among the few pairs of mesh skinny jeans that have actually fit my Hourglass body well, despite having several gift pairs that say they are rigged for it (no names, the blog is a positive place!.) So naturally, I had to buy them. With those others, I usually have to alpha my whole legs because they are so tiny, and I end up looking like an apple with chicken legs and an out of control thigh gap. The jeans include a texture control hud, that has 5 shades of denim, 2 blue, 1 white, and 2 blacks. All in all, definitely a needed basic to my wardrobe! “The *LBD* Basics-Low Rise Skinny Jeans” come sized for all Slink, Belleza and Tonic Mesh bodies, as well as Maitreya, TMP, and Ebody, as well as fitmesh sizes XS-L.
Oh, side note on The Little Black Dress, I blogged the other day about the Basics Trousers, and that I couldn’t find them at the mainstore. Well, I was just blind, lol, they are there, in the room to the left of the landing point, on the wall with all the other basics. I can be a blind nut sometimes!
Excitingly, LBD also has another lipstick sample on the marketplace for FREE. The “*LBD* Glossy Lipstick – Deep” comes in standard avatar tattoo or omega applier. I love it, but I’m not surprised, I’ve loved every single lipstick I’ve bought from LBD. I figure one day I’ll own them all, that day is not today though! So click over to the marketplace and snag it while it’s available and see for yourself!
Fish For This!
If you’ve not headed down to Sn@tch with your 7seas Fishing Pole for the New Years Grab bag, now is definitely the time to do it. Just yesterday all 8 of the lucky boards were updated with new items. I spent some time there, but there was other Ms, and I was distracted and don’t have any to show off, but I do have a couple more of the catches from the current fishing bag to show off! I love that Ivy has put TWO FREE hairs in this bag, I think FREE hair is my favorite thing of all in Second Life, which always endears Ivy a bit, even more, each time. I’m rocking the “Carter” hair. The “Carter” hair comes with one of Sn@tch’s Fades HUD, but, lucky me, it comes black right out of the box. So that’s an additional option until you use the HUD for a fade anyway. Another thing from this fishing trip is my collar. The “Sn@tch Spoiled Collar” is unrigged and scripted to give you some texture change options, including color and shininess of various parts of the collar. Both the hair and the collar are FREE with time spent and your 7Seas Fishing Pole (one-time 100L purchase, and there’s a vendor at Sn@tch.)
More Goodies from The Free Dove!
My bags were packed full after my most recent dance through The Free Dove Store. I’m always a sucker for mules so I’ve added Poeme’s “Dottie Mules” in this sky blue color. These shoes are rigged for Slink High Feet. To bring out the blues of the shoes and tie the outfit together, I applied the light blue version of the applier tank tops set out at The Free Dove by Baby Monkey. The “BM Ribbed Tank Tops Fall” come with Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink Appliers with 10 color options. It’s another one of those perfect basics. Thirdly, my pose in the above snapshot is a FREE bento pose that’s rather recently added. Remember, you’ll need The Free Dove group tag to snag the gifts, but the group and all the gifts are FREE!
Don’t forget my Share Your Free Dove blog event! No one has done it yet! *Frowny face* There are some nice gifts for participating, and I will send a folder with more than one, of your choice!
