On Beyond Zebra

Snapshot_1312

There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.

Dr. Seuss
My son adores Dr. Suess books, I guess he gets that from me, because I still adore them myself, just on a different level.  He’s really really into spelling right now, and I literally spend all day spelling everything to him, but I’m more than happy to do it, he’ll need these skills for more effective communication as his verbal language is pretty severely limited. Although, he did tell me this morning when I went to help him because his shoes were on the wrong feet “I’m independent!” I agree he’s very independent when it comes to making messes. Something about this dress from Gypsy Chic just said fun and whimsy to me, and Seuss is definitely the master in that department.  Just like yesterday, I have a wide variety of ways to find your goodies, with a few 100 lindens or less nabs from Dazzle, a lucky letter, a group gift, and a fishing prize!  And that, dear readers, is why I’m smiling.
You’ll have to forgive the old lady in me, I just wasn’t all that comfortable wearing Gypsy Chic’s “Palomma Zebra Dress” without something to cover my bits and bum.  I do happen to love it as a tunic top!  It’s soft and flowing, bright and cheerful, and the added waist corset adds a touch of earthiness to the colorful Zebra.  The Palomma Zebra Dress is an exclusive at the March round of Dazzle and is low priced at 100 lindens.  This dress comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas, as well as a standard fitted with alpha layer.  This round of Dazzle runs through the 25th!

Park Place “[Park Place] Zebra Director’s Seat”
These studded ankle boots are also available from Gyspy Chic in their Dazzle display, and also just 100 lindens.  There are also several other colors available if you’re not keen on the white.  They come rigged for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Additionally, it’s a good idea to check out the Gyspy Chic store, for just 5 lindens there are several cute gifts, as well as a gift for The Free Dove group right there in the store, as well as one for FabFree.  I’ve been a member of the Gypsy Chic group for a while now, even before being introduced to these fun designs at Dazzle.

Exposeur’s Pin Up Selfie Series -50L on marketplace sale!
Glint is also participating in Dazzle this month, and have yet another exclusive deal for us! This Onyx Zebra Necklace is unisex with its short length, leather cord, beads, and pendant.  The beads alternate between black and zebra print and a silver inlay of a Zebra head is set in shiny onyx. There is a resizer script on this fun and casual necklace, making it easy for anyone to wear.  It’s also quite low priced at 50 lindens!  I’ve talked about Glint very often in this blog, and while it appears that the lucky letters are no longer up, there is 7seas Fishing, as well as credit back on each purchase for group members, and group gifts.  Glint also participates in several hunts each month and has a very well organized hunt board with previews and hints clearly displayed.  The Glint group is FREE to join!  Obviously, I’ve been a member of the Glint group practically forever, and one great feature, which I’ve taken advantage of is customized jewelry.  Glint is also taking part in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing for next month!
 My sleek bob I also fished up this offering of Sn@tch’s Fish-4-This.  I finally completed the set last night, this hair is the last, due to a trade in group chat.  There’s also a blonde and a red version fished separately, and I was able to catch many of those before giving up and whining in group chat about it. There is a rigged and an unrigged version. Anyone can fish at Sn@tch with their 7seas Fishing pole, but Sn@tch chat is where the trading and sharing goodness happens.  The Sn@tch group is 200 lindens to join.

This super fun backdrop by Po^Z is also at Dazzle!  I was drawn to the earthy tones with the pops of color that allowed the zebra print to shine through without being overwhelming.  It’s happily also copy/mod. I discovered Po^Z through The Free Dove and struck up a conversation with the designer after I blogged her and dropped a courtesy note.  I’m happy to say that’s she’s a very friendly person, and one worthy of my financial patronage, little as it may be.  She’s also agreed to participate in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, much to my delight!  Po^Z  currently has 4 group gifts available at the main store, including bento poses and a backdrop, and the group is FREE to join!
I snagged these tights by Baby Monkey for just 10L in the marketplace.  There 35 colors in the pack, for classic avatar, Slink and Maitreya appliers.  They were key in helping this old woman keep her modesty because frankly, no one wants to a see a 41-year-old mom’s flat white butt (even if Slink Hourglass definitely gave me a butt lift!)

Kokoro Poses – Alice Group gift/group FREE to join
The final two touches I have to share today are my ring and bracelet.  The blue “Ribbon Ring” is one of several group gifts at Earthstones.  I recently, thanks to Kimbra of Beloved, learned a way to make my older rings bento!  It’s actually fairly simple, the next time to wish to wear one, use attach to instead of wear, and choose the ring finger option.  Now it’ll be floating out in midair when you do this, but step on your pose stand, and using the edit function maneuver the ring to the proper place.  The Earthstone‘s group is 250L to join.
Now my bracelet I scored off a lucky chair at Zuri Jewelry  I subscribed to this group and they often have fun events and sales.  You also don’t need to join the group to play the lucky letters at Zuri!  You should pop into Zuri’s for more than the lucky letters though. There’s a two lucky dip type thingies, gifts that are FREE to anyone in the group gift area, including matching earrings for this bracelet, and then there are gifts for the FabFree, Maitreya Gifts and News, Teleport Hub, and Third Life groups, as well as a subscriber gift. I felt this Rayna Cord leather bracelet with the teal accents just went perfectly with this outfit playing on both the leather of Glint’s necklace and the and the spectrum of shading in Gypsy Chic’s zebra.
All my makeup, and of course, my favorite glasses have been previously blogged!  Check the style card for every detail!

You’re stuck in a rut.

Exposeur’s Marketplace Sale was still on as a few minutes ago!  I snagged this simple shadow box with 10 poses and mirrors for just 50L!

 

Hello, lovelies!  Today I thought I’d bring you an eclectic assortment of ways to achieve the goodness I’m showing off, a unique event find, some limited time deals, some will remain as is for longer, but all showcasing black and silver, one of my favorite combinations!  I’ve also been brainstorming a way to better combine some of my happily accepted blogging duties with the core reason for my blog, which is showing complete looks with lots of free and inexpensive items.  Although admittedly I will stray from time to time because I adore something,  or it’s a roleplay look, or I find that things that aren’t free or cheap just compliment the look to meet my vision of it.   This post, however, does contain a fantastic and not under 100L event item, as well as the great freebies and inexpensive items I’ve become known for.  There’s a group gift, a lucky letter, a subscriber gift, a Sn@tch fishing find, as well as a sale!  Lots of information coming, but there’s not a thing in this post that I don’t love! So no skipping around allowed! (Evil laugh, I’m just kidding…aren’t I?)  So without further ado…

Dazzling Fish

Have you ever just sat back on the edge of a lake, or out in a quiet boat and just watched the fish swim and jump?  I love how the reflective properties of the scales as they hit the sunlight make the fish resemble glistening jewels.  I was quite a bit of a tomboy as a kid, and loved fishing, and still find it relaxing and meditative when I just need a break from it all.  More than the sparkle, maybe it’s the yin-yang design of the chasing fish in the pendant on this necklace from Stone’s Works that calls forth those peaceful moments.  I also really like the wide, chunky chain that this beautiful pendant is showcased on.  The Pisces Zebra Fish Necklace is an exclusive at this round of Dazzle for 199 lindens.  It’s only available until the 25th of March, so hop on the limo I just linked and head down and see this unique necklace in person.

Snapshot_1252.png

Speaking of fish, these earrings are in Sn@tch’s latest fishing prize batch.  This time the Fish-4-This is “I’m in the Little Balck Dress”  The entire set contains 6 mesh dresses stockings, necklace, earrings, boots and a few shades of hair.  Each piece, including left and right earrings as well as the boots, is fished up individually, making this time 22 unique items.  Fishing at Sn@tch and other sims with 7 Seas Fishing content requires a 7 Seas fishing pole, the casual rod can be purchased for 100 lindens and there’s a vendor for it right near the pond at Sn@tch.  However, once you make this initial investment everything you fish up from then on out is FREE.

Snapshot_1225.png

Very few people like the eat the skin of fish, even if it is prepared properly crispy.  Thank goodness my new skin from Dulce Secrets isn’t fish skin! The current group gift is this “Sose Skin” in the Quinoa color.  I love how soft and natural it looks with pale pink makeup added.  There’s system layer, Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega appliers included.  There are options for push up cleavage, or no, and a choice of black, brown, blonde, ginger, or no eyebrows included. If you like the Sose skin but think it’s too pale, which is perfect for me! There’s a darker “Oat” Version of the skin as a gift for the Weekly Limited group.  Both the Dulce Secrets and the Weekly Limited groups are FREE to join!

Snapshot_1234.png

Not fishy, but has that sparkle like the sun on fish, this dress from Chic Moda is a current lucky letter prize for group members!  Although I didn’t think to stop out of the shadow box to show the entire length of this long fitted gown, it does reach the floor.  As it goes with everything I’ve bought or been gifted from Chic Moda this gown is also extremely well-rigged, and textured.  I adore the fastenings detail on the back, making it very realistic.  This is a great store for original mesh, with a super nice and fun designer at the head!  The Chic Moda group is 50L to join, and there are several past group gifts available. Not to mention that they participate in my favorite sale of the week, Fly Buy Fridays!  The clothes, including this dress, are generally rigged for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Physique only.  Some are Maitreya only, but she’s been updating them to include Slink bit by bit (also allows us to vote on the next upgrade!)

Believe it or not, I’m actually making fish for dinner, for some reason I had a craving…. It’s nearly done, just in time too, as everything else I’m wearing has been previously blogged!  Check the style card for all the details!

Pie in The Sky

Snapshot_373

I had big plans full of pie puns and fun for you in this post, but I didn’t get a chance to sit down and write, so instead, you’re being treated to a rather rushed post so that there’ll be a few hours to snag this skirt before it’s gone.  The rest of the look will remain for a few days at least (some longer,) but the skirt only has until midnight SL time before it’s gone forever.

Pie Buy Fridays…er Fly Buy Fridays

Fly Buy Fridays are quickly shaping up to be the highlight of my week! Each weekend subscribers and group members are sent a HUD of the participating designers’ specials, ranging from 50-100L.  Not to slight anyone, but 4 of my favorite designers are participating; Pink Cream Pie, Justice, Chic Moda, and Slipper.  I don’t always get to blog my steals, but I was ahead of the game this weekend and should have it out Friday when I got my photos done, but life conspired and I almost didn’t get it out at all!  Seeing as I had the pics, and hopefully a few hours this afternoon, I’m trying to jam this post out, and still do it justice, forgive me for being a bit dryer than I hope to be.  Starting on Fridays, you can snag the HUD at that marketplace link for the week, or do as I did, subscribe to the Fly Buy Friday’s feed and have it sent to you as soon as it’s released! Additionally, there’s a FREE group to join if you prefer that route.  Me, I treasure my group space, so subscribe it is!  Whichever method you choose, snagging the HUD is easy as pie, as is using the slurl links and previews to go exactly where you need to be to scoop up these deals.

Snapshot_386.png

Excitedly, I slapped the HUD on as soon as I got it, and this skirt caught my pie.  There’s 10 different Valentine themed prints available this week from Pink Cream Pie for 50 little lindens each of the original mesh “Lucy Skirt.” As you can see, I bought the skirt in the “Valentine Hearts -Light Pink” print.  The Lucy Skirt comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.  No matter how you slice it, this is a great deal.  Sorry, again, this came out so late, but hopefully, you now know to catch next week’s deals at the very least!

Snapshot_374.png

Having a Riot Down at Sn@tch

Every other week you can find me down at Sn@tch City, 7seas Fishing Pole in hand reeling in the latest Fish-4-This offering.  I always set up near the riot vends with the lucky letter boards in sight (there’s still one left of this latest batch I don’t have yet!)  Despite a bit of lag, there’s a benefit of setting up near the riots.  First, you’re counted towards dropping the prices, and even if you’re not paying attention, or needing what’s offered, you’re helping out others, which is always appreciated as often as we riot at Sn@tch.  Riot offerings stay up for 2 weeks and are updated weekly on Wednesdays when half are changed out. I got in on a riot this week and purchased this “Svana Hair” with all of the color HUDs for just 55 lindens.  There’s a regular and a large size in the package, and the large fit just perfectly over my rather large bust.

Snapshot_331.png

I fished up the choker, along with 23 other fabulous items, while I was there.  This current stocking of the 7seas pond contains Valentine themed lingerie, dresses, mini skirts, lipsticks, hair, shoes and this adorable heart choker in pink.  You’ll need your 7seas fishing pole (100L) to catch this loot, but it is reusable for all future 7seas fishing you may do, including the oft-updated Sn@tch!

Snapshot_364.png

Two Dollarbies!

For just one linden, you can purchase 2 components of this look.  The glasses, which I wear quite often, and are FULL PERM from -LEO- (marketplace link), and my eyeshadow which is just one of many that are fairly newly updated at Dulce Secrets. Soft pinks plus a thick black liner the “::DS:: Boheme Dream Eyeshadow” worked perfectly for my look and comes in standard tattoo, or Catwa, LeLutka, or Omega applier. The rest of my makeup, including the freebies I’m wearing, has been previously blogged so check the style card!

More Freebies!

I chose the “Lace Tops Gift<3” from Blueberry to match up with this skirt.  While this gift isn’t new, it is FREE to anyone!  There’s a long and a short version of the tank in the gift, I’m wearing the long, as well as a color HUD of 27 of Blueberry’s main colors, plus a shiny gold version with 5 choices of lace and ties.  It comes sized for Maitreya, and all Slink and Belleza Mesh bodies.  If you haven’t been down to Blueberry yet, it would be a great time to spend the 20 lindens to join the group and scoop up the rest of the gifts.

Snapshot_351.png

The Gacha Garden Event by Gimme Gacha opened on the first, I played quite a few, (will show those off later) and while I was there scooped every several gifts!  I haven’t opened them all, but I found this soft floral enamel  “[BREATHE]-Mona Bracelet”, by Breathe, obviously, set out a group gift for the Gimme Gacha group which is FREE to join!  The bracelet includes a resize script for that perfect fit! Also from Gacha Garden are two decorations I have placed on the room divider in the background of my shots. The pictures hanging off heart strings is by Dilly Dolls, and the multi-color hearts wall hanging is one of two in the gift from the Velvet Whip

Trust Me, I’m a Legend

Snapshot_560.png

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.

Snapshot_564.png

 

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.)

Pose by Po^Z  FREE Bento pose at The Free Dove

 

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!

Reminder!

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!

Stranger in the Crowd

Snapshot_505.png

“♪ I’ve been standing on a corner
Since a quarter after seven
I was down to my last cigarette
And the clock in the window
At a quarter to eleven♫”

I figured, after a tame mommy’s night out post, I needed a naughtier girls’ night out post!  Sn@tch‘s latest Fish -4- This New Years grab bag gave me just the pieces I needed!  Poor Ivy is still recovering from a crashed PC, so she just tossed a bunch of stuff into the pond for us this round.  No complaints here, I’m quite happy with what I pulled out of the water with my 7seas fishing pole!  Some other inexpensive touches and I’m looking like one hot mama tonight!

I’ve been wanting some slutty leather pants, the few pairs I have don’t quite reach this level of exposure.  These “Sn@tch Carnal Leather Pants” are deliciously low and tight. The stud detail gives even more of a bad girl edge.  The fished version comes in black, teal and wine, for either system layer or Omega applier.  I’ve paired them with the “Joie Sheer Top” in red. This fished version includes 10 colors for system layers or Omega applier. I also reeled in this “Jordy Hair” with a naturals HUD on this fishing trip, along with 17 other items not shown in this post.  All 20 items are FREE with your time spent using your 7seas Fishing pole, which a casual version can be purchased for 100L and used across the grid.

Snapshot_494.png

While I was opening boxes and trying on my goodies from my fishing expedition, I got a notice from Legendaire that they had these “Paige Heels” were available for 1 linden for 1 hour, so I popped right into the store to get them. They come with a HUD of 10 colors to mix and match on 3 different areas of the shoe. While that hour has passed, there are two ways you can keep track of Legendaire’s frequent 1L1LH offerings.  The first is to join the Legendaire in-world group for 49 lindens.  This method nets you a bucketload of  gifts, with a steady stream of new ones, as well as all the notifications about the sales, new releases, and one hour one lindens for this store.  Alternatively, you can join the 1 Linden 1 Hour group for FREE and receive notifications when any of the participating shops have an offer. This group can totally fill up your group notifications fast when offline!  I personally found it a bit of a headache, but I will join for a day or so every now and then when I’m on the hunt for deals, I just try to remember to leave before I log out.

For my jewelry, I am wearing Beloved Jewelry‘s group gift #19 “Chain Gem Bracelets in silver with red crystal” along with the texture change gem dome ring I blogged about the other day.  This ring is no longer available for 1 linden for group members but is now available for 60 lindens to anyone.  The Beloved Jewelry group is FREE to join!

I’m also wearing a belly chain with silver links and gems that I picked up at KC Couture for 125L.  The “Kailua Waist Chain” comes sized for all Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies, with a HUD for 35 colors for the chain and the gem.  Here’s a Missy Pro-tip for shopping at KC Couture.  Join the in-world group for 25L and pick up several gifts.  Then pop in daily, and watch chat for when folks rally for the mini-mania board that awards a 50 linden gift card for the store.  You can wrack up a few and have one on hand whenever you make a purchase.   Therefore, Missy math means I actually spent 75 lindens on this versatile belly chain letting it slide in on the cheap side! There are also 2 lucky letter boards in the store for group members.

The choker I am wearing is a still available past group gift from Chic Moda.  If you missed sweeping in during the holidays, the Chic Moda group is 200L to join.  The “Mae Choker” comes with a hud for your choice of 11 colors for the choker and one of 3 metals for the heart charm that dangles. As I said the other day, there are 5 gifts currently available for joining the Chic Moda group, as well as 3 lucky letter boards! It also seems that I’ve missed knowing about, until now, the flash sales for group members where a promo code is sent out in notices, another great perk of joining!

For my cosmetics, I went heavy and slutty! I’m wearing the basics, as usual, eyelashes and eyeliners from ATIA and Blacklace Beauty.  But I’ve also slicked on Slackgirl‘s “::SG:: Fume Shadow 08” which is a group gift.  On my lips, I’m wearing ATIA’s “Scarlet Wet Lip Tattoo” which can be purchased solo for 25L or in a fatpack of 8 shades in the  Summer Nights Wet Lip Tattoo Fatpack” for 88L.

For my nails, I’m wearing another group gift from Slackgirl.  The  “::SG:: Diana Classic Mesh Nails.”  These come fitted for Slink, Vista, Maitreya, or Tuty bento hands.  There is also a HUD included that allows you to choose between nude, black, or white for the tips, 20 different gem colors, and 4 different metal colors for the gem attachments.  The Slackgirl group is 100 lindens to join and there are simply loads and loads of gifts up for group members.

 

 

I’m just using a generic cigarette, the kind that’s rezzed from various furniture.  However, I’m using the HUD, holding poser, and animation that came with a vape mod that I played a Since 1975 gacha for.  It has the smoking animation as shown in the last pic of the series above, as well as rings, hearts, or a straight puff exhaler, ring and heart shown above,  the straight in the first pic of the post.  I’ll also include a pic of the gacha key.  The “Vape Gacha (e-cigarette)” is 100L a pull.

The love that comes on the corner
At a quarter to eleven
I thought you were to good to be true
All my life I had believed
That angels only live in heaven
But now, we share the taste of milk and honey
Each day

I’m Just Baking (on A Sunday)

Snapshot_316.png

I’m still behind on my blogging!  Sunday’s post has been pushed to Monday morning because I really was baking cookies in first life with my lil’ guy, (and napping.)  But, I didn’t forget the loungewear post, and truth be told, I’ve been wearing this outfit all week, I just love it.  Once again, quite a bit going on in the skybox to share with you as well, so this post will chock full of FREE and cheap goodies!

The Perfect Man

He’s Rich.  He’s Sweet.

And if he misbehaves I can bite his head off.

So, I’ve been trying not to post the same stuff as FabFree, but sometimes, I just gotta!  When Pru at FabFree posted this t-shirt from Petite Mort at the Frost Fair, I put it on my list to go grab.  I love love double meanings, especially if one is naughty. But, you should check out Pru’s post too to see how’s she’s styled it.  The “Get Baked Tee” is just a linden at the Petite Mort stall at the Frost Fair. It comes sized for all Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

When I picked up this totally fun pair of PJ pants from Waffles as an advent gift, I couldn’t resist pairing them up with the Get Baked Tee.  The reds match and the gingerbread men in the texture of the pants are close enough, and just off enough to not be totally matchy-matchy, which I like. The “Christmas Cheer Flannel Pajama Pants” was just a linden for me on the right advent day.  However, this is now a past advent gift, but it can still be picked up for 10 lindens if you’re a member of the Waffles group (25L to join), or 25 lindens if you’re not.  Warning!  DO NOT use the vendor display on the wall to purchase past advent gifts as the sign directs.  This is broken and took 50 lindens from me twice and I’m still trying to work out a refund with the owner, as Second Life is only showing the transaction on my end and not hers.  Instead, turn around from the advent area and you’ll see a pile of presents on the floor.  The past Advent gifts are in that pile.

Continuing with the gingerbread men theme, this necklace is a 1 linden hunt prize from Glint.  Glint has hidden a pair of gingerbread necklaces, one male and one female one in the box as part of The Advent Chase Hunt.  Find the hidden green candle and pay just 1 linden and you get both adorable gingerbread charm necklaces!

And for the final gingerbread touch, I have this cookie sheet of gingerbread bear heads, which I picked up at the Sese stall at The Chapter 4 event.  The pose is actually something I got out of a fall tray of items that I had picked up from Lil’Bug.  I took the animation and used it with this pan of cookies, I did have to resize and adjust the “Sese Gingerbreads” to make it fit just so, but was able since they are modify.

Snapshot_305.png

While I was at Glint picking up the hunt prize from The Advent Chase Hunt, I noticed that there was a snowflakes and bells texture change set that was on sale for 99L.  I used some of my store credit and snagged it since the PJ pants had bells in them and I can tie it together.  The set also comes with a necklace which I haven’t shown, as I’m wearing the gingerbread man charm instead.  There is a hud included with the set with several color options for both the main and accent gems, and to change the metal between gold and silver.

My hair is FREE! This is the hair in the latest fishing outfit set out by Sn@tch.  You can also fish a white and a red version of the “Sn@tch on the Shelf hair.”  Seeing as how my December is going I likely won’t get to blog the entire outfit, but it’s hella cute! Grab your 7seas Fishing Pole and head over to Sn@tch to fish up all the items in the Fish 4 This- Sn@tch on the Shelf.  I snapped a screenie of the vendor ad so you can see what’s included.  No group is needed, but you do need a pole, which is a wise investment at 100L because besides Sn@tch generally doing 2 outfits a month, there are other locations you can fish up some original items throughout the grid, those I’ve found are on the 7seas info page linked above.

Snapshot_001.png

I picked up a new set of eyeliner with eyelashes (tattoo layer not mesh) at Blacklace Beauty.  The fatpack is 99 lindens and has 9 eyelash/eyeliner combos in it.  I’m wearing number 1.  I’m also wearing my mesh eyelashes from ATIA that are FREE in the “Grab Bag” I often speak about, so keep that in mind.  I think the addition of the tattoo layer just fills things out and makes the mesh pair look more natural and full.  It’s now a basic!

Titivate and Titillate

Snapshot_165.png

tit·i·vate ˈtidəˌvāt/
verb
informal
[WITH OBJECT]
1. Make minor enhancements to.
‘she slapped on her warpaint and titivated her hair’
1.1 titivate oneself  Make oneself look smart.
‘he was titivating himself, slicking his hair and freshening his breath’
I’ve been wondering how exactly I would categorize this look.  I mean it’s sexy, but not slutty, dressy, but not fussy, revealing, yet modest.  Which is basically how I feel about black lace in general, the cut of this skirt and top just kind of elevate the mood that black lace conveys to me.  I pretty much adore black lace.  The way Coco Chanel described lace pretty much sums up what it means to me as well. It’s just graceful, and when it’s black it’s generally sexy.
quote-i-consider-lace-to-be-one-of-the-prettiest-imitations-ever-made-of-the-fantasy-of-nature-coco-chanel-87-57-04.jpg
The skirt and top are part of a 3 piece set from Legendaire currently on the back wall of deals for 49 lindens.  The skirt and top come with a hud to choose between 4 styles, that isn’t just your usual color hud type of hud, each choice is unique in its own way, through fabric or print.  Also included in the outfit is a pair of white heels, that go pretty well with the other 3 styles in the hud, but I wasn’t feeling it for black lace.  It’s officially the “Thanksgiving Dinner Outfit” but for me, it’s not a time of year specific look.
The Thanksgiving Dinner Outfit comes in the following sizes:
  • Belleza -Venus, Isis, Freya
  • Slink- Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Standard xxs-L
  • shoes rigged for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza

Snapshot_171.png

I liked the idea of carrying over the theme of the flowers in the lace into my accessories.  I recently picked up these black, silver and rhinestone heels from Shoenique Designs as a FREE gift to the SL Frees and Offers group.  The SL Frees and Offers group is FREE to join.  These shoes come sized for slink high.
My hair is from Sn@tch, I had actually bought this hair a while back when it was on a riot vend, but, if I hadn’t, I would have been able to fish it up for FREE!  It’s the hair for Sn@tch’s current Fish-4-This outfit, all parts of which can be obtained by fishing in Sn@tch’s pond with your 7Seas fishing pole I blogged about other pieces of the outfit on Sunday, along with the vendor’s ad, if you care to see more of what you can reel in down at Sn@tch.
Snapshot_172.png
Since I was going with flower accents, I used a dollarbie jewelry set I picked up at Beloved Jewelry.  I’m wearing the “Modern Flower Jewelry Set in Silver” but there is also a gold version available for a linden as well.  There is a copy of the necklace in the package with a resizer script, so it can work for anyone! I liked the way this set fell right into the top of the triangle of the chest piece, breaking up the black a bit.
tit·il·late /ˈtidlˌāt/
verb
1. stimulate or excite (someone), especially in a sexual way.
Everything else I’m wearing has been blogged before, so if you like it, consult the style card!

I’m Introverting (It’s Just Sunday Redux)

Snapshot_077.png

Another cozy Sunday is planned, and after being sick for so long, I just want to veg and be alone!  (Anyone want to babysit today so this can happen?) A book, a fire, cuddly knits, and of course silence just sound like Heaven. I’ve taken this very affordable cuddly long cardi and paired it with some cuddly knit leggings and scarf that I fished up, some FREE hair,  FREE earrings, and a Black Friday deal.

The sweater is one of those basics I have from The Little Black Dress.  It only set me back 49 lindens and comes with a HUD of 6 colors.  It’s also copy/mod so your color choices are really unlimited. I couldn’t decide if I liked the pink or grey better, so I’ve got pics with both.  The “*LBD* Basics- Long Cardi comes rigged in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh – S-XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatar

I’ve paired it with one of 6 leggings fished up from Sn@tch in the latest fishing outfit “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”  You can fish up standard layer or omega hud separately.  I really loved the fair isle in these blues, greys, and lavender. The grey sequined scarf was also fished up from Sn@tch, and I put it on because even Sunday deserves a little sparkle.  The scarf comes with a reszing script included so it can work for just about everyone!  Of course you need your 7seas Fishing Pole, thankfully there’s a vendor for you set out right at the fishing area!  Here’s Sn@tch’s advertisement for this fish -4-this so you can see more of what you can catch.

No shoes, just warm socks for a Sunday at home. I picked up several pairs of Pink Cream Pie‘s “Hazel Socks” for just 100 lindens each.  The entire store is 50% off for Black Friday, but the sale price was still there this morning.  I didn’t have the lindens or the store credit to pick up the fatpack (frowny face) which includes 18 basic colors plus 12 fatpack exclusive prints for only 750 Lindens (1500 when the sale is over.)  Additionally there is a newly, by pinkie pie request, striped set of the “Hazel Socks” in the store, your 100 linden sale price will net you 2 pairs, the color stripe of your choice with options for both black stripes and white stripes.  I can’t talk about the Hazel Socks without mentioning that there is a group gift exclusive print available, as well as group only luck letter version.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 250 lindens to join, and comes with a ton of benefits that I’ve discussed over and over on the blog.

My ring I picked up as an absolute steal over at Glint.  It’s actually a wedding set so there are 2 rings in the box, but don’t judge, I bought it for myself. The Glint “Forever Love Wedding Set” is on the Weekly Sale for just 99 lindens. BUT…there’s a coupon you can pick up at various easels throughout the store that you can wear that will give you 75% off your purchase, so I was able to pick up this set of bento rings for 25 lindens!  The sale and the coupon aren’t going to last forever though.

Snapshot_114.png

Lastly, I’ve got a few FREE items to tell you about.  The “Petunia Hair Megapack” is a lucky letter prize down at Tameless.  It comes with both the naturals hud and a fantasy hud, as well as scripted to change the color of the bows.

You really can’t see it, but I did something strange with a pair of gift earrings set out by EKC.  These enamel earrings have the saying “I Believe in Fun” on them, and I attached one to my chest and positioned it as a button on my cardi.  The EKC is a cute little eclectic shop with very affordable pricing.  There are also 2 lucky chairs in the shop.  The EKC group is FREE to join and will not only grant you access to the gifts but also 10% off your purchases.

Gacha Gardens

The second freebie is the gift set out at the Gatcha Gardens Event by *PerveTTe*.  There’s two pairs of the “Luxury Earrings Silver” in the box, one with the black stones that I am wearing, and another with white stones.  You need the Gatcha Gardens group tag to scoop up the gifts, but the group is FREE to join!

Those two needlepoint hangings I also snagged at Gatcha Gardens.  Little Llama has a “Say it With Stitchings” Gacha set out, with the aside that “this isn’t your grandma’s cross-stitch.”  I could NOT RESIST playing this one at 50 lindens a pull.  I won this introverting one. While you can’t see it well, the FREE gift set out is the square cross-stitch behind me and it says “You’re doing it wrong, but I love you anyway.”

Back to blanket, book, and coffee for me!  Enjoy your deals.

Nature Is…

Snapshot_175

“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

~Emily Dickinson

My nature is to hunt deals.  And this is a cheap look! Legendaire has the Joey 2 Outfit up for 99 lindens, that includes the sweater with a hud for 4 different prints, the jean skirt, and a pair of black open-toe knee-high boots, which I opted not to wear.  Missy Math makes this 33 lindens an object, not including the choice of textures! I love the boots, but I’ve been wanting to wear a pair of boots I picked up last summer for the longest time, and they happened to go wonderfully.  I’ve added a couple of FREE accessories I picked up at the Hairology Event, a new pair of FREE glasses, and a FREE hair to be worn under the hat (same place I got the boots.)  Plus, parts of my makeup is FREE, and part on sale.

LEGENDAIRE JOEY OUTFIT 2 WITH BOOTS.png

I figured I’d go ahead and put up the official ad for the Joey 2 outfit because the three textures I didn’t use are shown, as well as the boots.  It’s hard to see in this ad, but I really like the pattern on the striped sweater, it has a beige stripe as well that just set’s it apart from your typical black and white stripe, and it looks really soft and cuddly.

All three pieces come in the following sizes:

  • Belleza -Venus, Isis, Freya
  • Slink- Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

To find it in the store, look on the back wall right under the 55 Thursdays sign.

Snapshot_176.png
Lol, not the best photo, but I had to put it up because it made me laugh so hard.  It looks kind of like it’s a big head behind one of those painted boards with other bodies on it.  The pose is “Balancing” by Luane’s World 10L.

Now my boots and hair came from ALB Fashions and ShuShu.  The hair is part of the “ShuShu Hot Hot Hot” outfit and is a group gift for the SL Frees and Offers Group, this gift is located right in the courtyard in front of the store. I love this hair not only for the funky style and highlights but because it fits perfectly under hats! The SL Frees and Offers group is FREE to join.

If you join the LAMU group which is FREE, the group joiner is right there with the SL Frees and Offers gift, finding the group gifts are a bit more fun, and there are several.  Be ready to go on a hunt throughout the store, instead of having a wall of gifts, ALB has gifts spread out around the store corresponding to the department.  For example, jewelry gifts can be found in the jewelry section, shoes in shoes, and so on and so forth.  My boots are one such gift, the “ALB Cologne Special Boots.”  There are 8 pairs of boots in this gift, in different base colors with coordinating accent colors.  I’m wearing the black and gold pair.  Also included are a shoe base and alpha layer.  These are mesh boots, so hiding your feet is needed.  I really love these boots, they are unique to anything else I’ve seen in Second Life.

Hairology Event

Have you been to the Hairology 2nd Anniversary Event yet?  You really need to go if you haven’t.  There are a good number of FREE hair gifts, which I’ve seen blogged all over, so I opted to blog the two accessory gifts that I picked up there. My leather derby hat is from Iconic, and comes with a color hud with 12 color options.  But not only is there a derby hat and hud in the gift, there is also a baseball cap, a felt hat, and a Homburg hat all with the corresponding color huds.

I also picked up my knit choker at the event. The *PH knit choker* is event gift from Pink Hustler. It comes with a mix and match hud with 20 colors for the choker and ties seperately, as well as 3 metal options for the little beads at the end of the ties.

Optical Insurance Not Needed!

Pru over at FabFree clued us into a FREE pair of glasses. I suppose technically they are intended for males, but I love em, so I nabbed em.  They are the current group gift for BlankLine, and the group is FREE to join!

Underneath those sexy specs, I am wearing the “::DS:: Wings of Hope Citrene Eyeshadow” which is in a huge collection of FREE makeup that Dulce Secrets has made for The Free Dove.  Just head to the makeup section towards the middle of the store, and locate the gift named “Dulce Secrets 2017 Free Dove Collection” and treat yourself to tons of free makeup goodness.

I’ve added an eyeliner over the top, ATIA’s “Soft Focus Eyeliner 2″ which is available individually for 25L or in a fatpack of 8 eyeliners for 88 lindens.  I’ve also dug back into the :Autumn Wet Lip Tattoos fatpack” again and chose the “Spice” shade.  This fatpack is also on sale for 88 lindens, with 8 lipsticks included.

I fished up my tights back when Sn@tch had the fall fishing back out in September.  That version came with 3 colors.  I found them on the marketplace in a fatpack of 8 colors with matching socks for 275 lindens currently.  Of course, if you’re in the Sn@tch VIP group, you can ask if someone has an extra for you, it was the number 15 “Sn@tch Ribbed Tights (Fall 3 Pack) to be specific!  These come in Omega Applier and Standard socks and underwear layers. The Sn@tch VIP group is 200 lindens and worth every penny.

Since I just used nails from my mesh body’s HUD, I guess that’s all folks!
