Life is just snow days, and more snow. Good for the kids, not so good for the tired mamas. The Little Mister has been home from school and all I want now is for this dirty slushy road slicking snow to go away! Some warm breezes, vitamin sun, and fresh flowers wouldn’t hurt either. Thank goodness for Second Life, where I can immerse my imagination in all things pleasant. I’ve got a limited deal, a dollarbie hair, some Missy Mathed items, and a couple of offerings from Dazzle to show off today! Lots coming at ya!
Beloved Jewelry is doing something special this year. Each month there’s an 8 piece set birthstone set. February’s is amethyst and is selling through Thursday for just 60 lindens! After Thursday the price goes up to the normal 245 lindens/ 125 lindens for group members. I blogged the January set, with the garnet birthstone in the June in January post, this is also still available at full price. This set is the same complete deal, which choker, pendant necklace, 2 bracelets, bento attached ring, and 2 pairs of earrings, one hoop, one stud, which I use as double piercing by moving the positioning of the studs pair. I just realized I was a bit of a nincompoop when I was doing these pics, I had ended up switching them out for the resize versions about halfway through the shoot as different poses messed up with the view…so I had started with them using the rose gold, and when I switched some out, I left them on platinum. OoOpises! Unintended look at 2 of the 12 metals available in this set. Even if you miss this sale, 125 lindens for an 8 piece amethyst set with the option of 12 metals is still a super deal! The Beloved Jewelry group is FREE to join! This is where you can keep track of sales and events, including this month’s Dazzle, as well as snag the frequent group gifts out of notices.
I wanted to do something a little different with my hair. I’m typically a stickler for my dark locks, or with a little or alot of gray when I’m just wearing normal, not roleplay or edgy clothing. This time, I liked the bright pink at the ends of this fabulously soft and swinging pony. This particular color, in dark brown and pink of the Debbie Hair from Ali & Ali Designs, is just 1 linden in the marketplace. There are other colors of the hair available for 50 lindens, and the rest for 175 lindens, or 650 lindens for a fatpack.
It’s Missy Math Time!
Dress and shoes each involve a little explanation on how I get the deals I did to get them, and both involve group membership. The two groups involved in this section are MoOH! and Arcane Spellcaster, both of which I’ve been a long time member of. Now, as stated several times in my blog, one of the benefits of being MoOhlicious is a 150 linden gift card every month. Arcane Spellcaster, however, has 5 group gifts a month, and he’s sneaky about slipping in 500L gift cards here and there, and in December he gave us 2 of them. The MoOh! group is 100 lindens to join, has 1 monthly gift, 150 linden monthly gift card, and 3 lucky letter chairs. The Arcane Spellcaster group has 5 monthly group gifts, surprise gift cards and member sales, one lucky chair, and is 250 lindens to join.
This pale lavender dress with the darker floral applique is soft and romantic, and then a bit of ultra sexy is added with the laced side slits with rose gold loopholes. The “Afrodite” dress is normally 235 lindens. However, whipping out one of my fat 500 linden gift cards, of which I have several, I snagged this beauty for FREE! Afrodite comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, and all 3 Bellezas.
My first thought when I wanted some lavender shoes, and none of the shoes I own, even those with HUDS were just right, was that MoOh! has the best pastel shoes. I popped right on down there wearing one of my gift cards and after some deliberation (because I want them ALL!), and lots of trying on with this outfit, I happily settled on this pair of “Claire Heels” with the pastel HUD. Now these cost 175 lindens, but with my monthly gift card, I scored em for 25 lindens. Popping in the pic of the vendor ad so you can check out the awesome color hud on these. Oh and I love the heart charm detail!
Dazzled by Dazzle!
I want to enforce something. While I have lucked out and became an official blogger for a handful of stores, with all the free goodies included, I do put my money where my mouth is and support them all with my own lindens. That is when they let me *side eyes Kimbra*. Dazzle is no exception. I think you’ve all seen that I have a makeup crush on Dulce Secrets, and no I’m not their blogger, everything I get I get myself, happily! I went to their stall at Dazzle and picked up their offering, the “Smooth Eyeshadow” set, and this isn’t one given to me in my blogger box for the event! I paid 99 lindens for 8 lovely eyeshadows and a bonus ruby lipstick (not shown.) This comes out to 11 lindens per component! The Smooth Eyeshadows come in Standard Avatar tattoo, LeLutka, Catwa, and Omega Appliers. I am wearing the “Smooth Purple.”
(oh no two pics in a row!)
These lace-up applique topped stockings from Bliss were the inspiration for the look. I love the detail here, how instead of applier painted on skin look, you can really see the texture of the lace. Even better is the price! For just 59 lindens you can buy either the darks or the lights in these tights. There are 5 colors per pack. The Maia Stockings are at Dazzle until the 26th, along with quite a few other sexy lingerie and stockings sets!
