Slacker Day!

Snapshot_948.png

Finally, loungewear again! Now, I know, that I have said many, many times that I don’t have a style.  However, if I’m not roleplaying in some fashion, I’m running around ultra casual, it’s what I do, it’s the real me, I’m a slob.  I just even realized that I’m wearing something similar as I write this, only the purples and pinks are more jewel-toned!  Everything I’ve got on is mostly FREE for another day or two at least, the group gifts can remain longer, and my Free Dove stuff isn’t going anywhere soon.

Shop Till You Drop

Truth had a booth at Shop Till You Drop, and this Astra Valentine’s gift was FREE to all there.  It was a super generous gift with ALL of Truth’s color HUDs, and a style HUD.  Since the event ended on the 26th, I decided to show off this hair as a thank you, and in conjunction with mentioning that the 50% items are still in the marketplace if you missed the event (search VDAY).  This hair is also for sale on the MP, but not 50% off, the full fatpack will cost you 1250 lindens, 400 lindens for the variety pack, or 250L for a single color hud.  I know I had alot of trouble getting in until towards the end of the event, and others may have just given up.  I finally snagged the Farryn hair that I’ve been drooling over for a couple of months now for just 150 lindens for the single color pack.  I do have plans for that hair and this blog in the works, but the magic eightball said NO when I asked if I’d get that post out by the end of the month.  Spoiler alert, that loosey-goosey gorgeous french braid looks amazing under a white Stetson.  Stay tuned if you’re craving a western look!

*Noon SLT update, Group Notice sent out that Astra is available at the Truth Front Desk for FREE!

Gacha Garden

I had so many goodies to show off from this round of the Gacha Gardens that didn’t even get around to showing off my Justice Liza Dress gacha RARE win (and only on the 2nd pull!)  I did blog a few things here, and here, but, seeing as Gimme Gacha events rank among my favorites, I’ll give another little shout out and hope it drags another body into the event. I’m wearing A*S’s  “Candy Heart collar love” which was the gift set out at the A*S gacha stall at the Gacha Garden Event.  You’ll need to be a member of the Gimme Gacha group to snag any of the gifts, but the group is FREE to join (and imo a very fun group to remain in for chat and gacha trading!)  It ends on the 28th, so if you haven’t gotten down there yet, shake your tail feather!

Sealed With a Kiss

If you’re like me and doing all you can to catch up on all you missed in terms of hunts and events this month, you should put The Sealed With a Kiss Hunt on your list! I found these pink floral chucks at Poeme for just 1 linden!  They are unrigged and modifiable, so they’ll work with any feet!  If you love em, head down and snag them by the end of the 28th!

I ❤ Group gifts!

Justice is one of my absolute favorite stores to get my everyday looks.  Absolutely everything I’ve demoed or purchased from there is rigged amazingly well, little if any glitches, even with my slider so far to the right on my boobs, and I definitely have my body fat slider some to the right as well! I barely have to use my alpha hud at all. I often joke in group chat about how much I love how her stuff does “justice” to my hiney in such a way that even I can’t stop staring at it. (See what I did there? And see me wearing the Bailee Jeans that started this love affair here.)

Then there’s the fact that the owner, Valentine, is one of the genuinely nicest people that I’ve had the privilege to meet in Second Life.  Currently, at Justice, there are 3 group gifts available for women, including these lavender leggings, and one gift for men.  Group privileges also give a percentage of credit when you make a purchase.  To my great delight, she often participates in Fly Buy Fridays!  I lurrrrveeeee Fly Buy Fridays, getting that little sales HUD is the highlight of my SL shopping week!  There’s also gachas in the store for us gacha lovers, and she participates in several events as well.  Oh, and do you know what the sugar sprinkles on top of all this delightfulness is?  The Justice group is FREE to join!

This pose isn’t included in the set from Belle Poses, but I’m using the furniture with a pose that’s in the 9-year Anniversary pack, which is 45 poses for 45 lindens, by HelaMiyo! Am I the only one who hangs their head over the end of the couch like this when I’m bored? It does feel pretty great on my back however.  Although with 1st World gravity my face would be behind the juggs, I am past 40 now!

Anyway, if you read that little photo caption, I’m hanging here to show off these glasses, which I have blogged before, but wanted to mention again, because it’s been 6 months and they are still available! Blankline is actually a men’s store, but when it comes to plastic black frames, I’m a fan and don’t discriminate.  Take the teleport, and yes it will say men’s something or other, but you’re in the right place, you can join the group there at the desk and there’s a picture frame behind it that has these hip nerdy glasses as a group gift.  The Blankline group is FREE to join!  Take your men along, because there are some pretty fantastic men’s clothes here.

These pink reverse french nails are group gift #183 “Coffee House Pinup” From Hello Dave. It’s last week’s group gift, this week has #184 and #185 given, so if you’ve not joined Hello Dave yet, for 100L, you can still get this in the Past Group Gift’s box, which has all the group gifts from 149- current.   Hello Dave gives a new nail palette each week as group gifts!

The Group of Groups!

So, I’ve already told the store about finding The Free Dove via google, which started my fascination with SL fashion, but it was when I found what is my favorite blog SL blog ever that I expanded my knowledge to things like,  furnishings, decor, events, hunts, poses.  I still read it daily, and often link back to it, it’s also here on WordPress.  If you didn’t guess by all those hints it’s Fabulously Free in SL! However on top of sharing all the finds they go out and hunt for, there’s also a TON of designers who support their group and offer FREE gifts to its members.  These totally FUN LED lighted jelly bracelets are one such gift.  Zendra has generously made these exclusive for the FabFree group, and it’s easy to see why as it’s rainbow colors just like the FabFree group logo! If you’re not already a member of the FabFree group, it’s FREE to join!  Just head down to Zendra and use the FabFree group tag to snag these fun bracelets!

My shirt, sigh, there are two points I need to get across here.  One is, that I need to blog more often. Two, since I didn’t blog them in time, you should take it upon yourself to check the weekly riot offerings at Sn@tch, and the best way to get in on the riots is by joining the Sn@tch VIP group which is 200L. I rioted for these a couple of weeks ago and got them at rock bottom, 50 lindens.  The Lucy tanks are a fantastic basic to have, there’s a HUD of 30 colors and a ton of sizes, but I’m not going to go into all that because I’m not sure if they are still available!  I checked the Marketplace, and they aren’t listed there, but the store is pretty huge so they might be there at normal price, I didn’t run around and look, I’m too LAZY for that!

Snapshot_939.png

The couch, game controllers, and every pose  (6 total) above not captioned with a different designer are a set from BellePoses.  You can snag the Smart Girl poses and props for 99 lindens on the marketplace, or in the main store!

Everything else has been blogged before, including the skin, lipstick, and earrings from The Free Dove.  Check the style card for all the links and credits!  My 3 parting poses are just me being goofy, and are not from the included poses in the Smart Girls set, but the props are, naturally.

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!

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

My Heart has been Sn@tched!

Snapshot_116.png

Snapshot_120

Sn@tch, God bless Ivey, has restocked the fishing pond AGAIN!!!!  I’m there now, dressed in my Warm Woolies from G Sloane.  If your machine can handle a busy Sn@tch, now is a great time to come down, as it’s packed with fisherwomen, and the riot vends are at rock bottom!  I’m also so very glad I didn’t delete the 7seas pole after I fished up the fall grab bag!

Snapshot_118

Snapshot_105

Now my adorbs outfit is something I had picked up at G Sloane for just 99L.  That’s a full outfit for that price, however, this outfit does cycle through one of the lucky letter boards, so with a bit of patience, you can get it for FREE.  It includes the sweater, skirt, and boots with leg warmers that I’m wearing here.  It comes in standard sizes, as well as fitmesh for belleza, maitreya, and slink (shoes too!)  The knit detail, which was somewhat difficult for me to get a good screengrab of is just fantastic!

I’ve rounded out the outfit with my go to hair, Elie from Truth, and go-to make up, the Pewter Rose Makeover from my personal favorite Makeup Artist, ATIA (which is not a cheapie!).  To get in the spirit of the witchiness of the fishing prizes, I painted my nails with Hello Dave’s group gift 137, Hex Witchery.  The polish can be found in the package of all of Hello Dave’s past group gifts,  which is up to like 159 now, with your VIP group join fee of 100L. That’s less than 1 linden per set, not to again mention, Hello Dave’s weekly VIP gifts!

Hello Dave VIPs - Hex Witchery ad

Of course, I’m also wearing my fishing rod, which is customizable, although I’ve not done so yet.  I talked more about 7seas fishing in this post.  Today at Sn@tch, Ivey has put out the vendor for the 7seas Pro Rod, which is 250L.  I just have the casual one, which is 100L.  If you check out the 7seas website, the Pro Rod allows you to skill up your fishing, with the use of purchased bait, to be able to compete in contests for prizes. The casual rod can be snagged on Marketplace for 100L

On a final note, before I spend my coffee hour relaxing with rod in hand, the items fished up at Sn@tch are transferable.  So far, I’ve given my duplicates to my friends, however, the Sn@tch group is a very active group in terms of trading (also organizing riot vends),  but it will cost you 200L to join.

Get it!:

Sweater, Skirt, Boots with Legwarmers: G Sloane Lucky Letter prize!  Group FREE to Join!

Autumn State of Mind

Snapshot_028

Now that the heatwave is at least on a temporary respite, I wanted to get out early and enjoy the beauty of a sunrise in the cool, crisp, autumn air. Filled my thermos with coffee and headed to Countryside to enjoy their breathtaking Autumn Views.  Countryside is a beautiful fall themed rural sim, and it does have adult content, so visit at your own discretion (or desire?)

The inspiration for this look is the lovely Jade and Sunstone Jewelry set that Glint has generously offered through The Free Dove.  The set includes the necklace, earrings, and bracelet. I love how the designer at Glint has managed to capture such rich colors in this set, which pop yet remain appealingly soft, as I feel jade is. You must join The Free Dove group, but the group is FREE to join, and if you’ve never been there, you will find yourself in freebie heaven!

Snapshot_030

Luckily, I have been hooked on Sn@tch lately and reeled in the ripped “Daydream” jeans I am wearing here. Puns intended! Sn@tch has stocked their pond with their 7seas Fall Grab bag.  A 7seas fishing rod will set you back 100L, but not only can it be used to catch the 20 total fall themed items that Sn@tch has put out, there are various other destinations (including the maker of this featured jewelry Glint!) that offer unique content for 7Seas in their fishing areas on top of the always available 7Seas items.  Sn@tch has considerately placed a vendor near the fishing area to purchase your rod.

 

After fishing peacefully for a bit, I noticed that the riot vends had gone really low, and I was able to pick up this Sydney Tied Top for 52L.  Included in the box for the Sydney Tied Top is an Omega applier as well as system layers for 12 dark colors, and optional sleeve ruffles(not shown) with a color hud .  I also was able to pick up prizes from all 8 Lucky Boards while fishing. The Sn@tch group costs 200L (which I have happily joined),  but is not required for the fishing nor the lucky boards.  Don’t forget to check out the free and cheap wall in the mainstore, the deal of the week, and the Sn@tch outlet for more free or cheap items.   Save your 7seas fishing pole for the next grab bag items Sn@tch will put out as well!  Astrid from Fabfree has blogged about more Fall Grab bag catches from Sn@tch here.

Snapshot_031

For my makeup, I once again turned to ATIA, and purchased their bronze lite eyeshadow for 25L, and my lips are in their Sienna Wet Lip tattoo, also 25L ( alternatively available in a fat pack of 8 lips for 175L.)  These items work with classic avatars.  The lovely matching nail polish is the FabFree group gift at Hello Dave, and comes with 5 shades for slink, omega, or maitreya appliers.  The Fab free group is free to join!  My shoes were a hunt gift from Loordes of London, but Lord (ba-dum-tish) I can’t remember which hunt!  They are participating in several and all the various hunt prizes are 5L or less, and all worth a trip to the store to hunt them down! Further, you can also pick up the Fab free gift while there!  Finally, my hair is a group gift hair, Honest, From Magika, and comes with all 4 of their color huds.
