Oldies but Goodies – Blogger Challenge

September 3, 2010 1 comment

Perion and I decided to do this blog challenge together.  The theme is for bloggers to only use items in their inventory that are a year older or more. 
It took me an hour or so to get dressed and it took Perion about 3 days.  😐   Regardless of how long it took, we both found plenty of older stuff in our inventories that have really stood the test of time. 
I am wearing a couple items from Last Call and every time I put anything on from there I am really surprised by how far ahead of times they were.  It was a real loss when they closed.  I am probably not going to do next week’s “Gone but Not Forgotten” blogger theme, but do my Last Call pieces here count?  😛

Belleza Elle Gift and Weekend Deals!

April 10, 2010 2 comments

Oooo!  I just had a new Belleza Group Gift skin dropped on me and immediately threw it on to take pictures.  /me LOVES!   This is the new Elle skin which is out in the store now!  So pretty!   *squeals*

.

~This is another skin win for Belleza!  It is just lovely all around, beautiful face, wonderful nose and brows, great optional cleavage and the nipples are slightly different from the last Belleza release.  I liked the ones on the Alyson skin, but I think I like these even better!  The gift skin comes in all tones, with optional hairbase, so you get 4 skins per tone!  I am showing the tan tone above.
~The cute dress I am wearing is 60L this weekend from Line.  The skirt has a resize script and both front and back can be resized and moved separately.  I know this b/c I asked the designer if it was a mistake that it was no mod.   /stabs self. 
~The poses are part of a set from [doll] which is 60L this weekend only.

Hunts!

January 16, 2010 21 comments

I spent the last day or so doing the Shoe and Accessory Hunt and the Heat Wave Hunt.   There are a lot of nice things in both these hunts and I have picked a few to feature here.  I can’t blog everything in the hunts, that isn’t what I do.  erm.  More on that later.  For now, here is some of what I found.

~I love this top from WWI for the Heat Wave Hunt.  It comes with an optional lace bra and really nice scuplted sleeves. 
~The glasses from Kumaki are really cool.  They come with several different scenes printed on the lens and can be opaque or transparent.  These will be great for photos in different outdoor locations. 
~The Indyra Originals bag is fantastically textured and comes in two sizes.

~These cute shoes are by Kalnins for the Shoe and Accessory Hunt.  They come in both male and female sizes and are texture change to 11 different textures. 
~The belt is by Ducknipple for the Shoe and Accessory Hunt…they are giving such great prizes!!

~And now I need to take some time to relax after all that work!  😛 
This bathtub is the Heat Wave prize from Cheeky Pea and comes with both single and couple poses!  Yes, I am wearing pasties…wearing clothes seemed wrong, but we couldn’t have full on nip! 

Bath:  Cheeky Pea Heat Wave Hunt Slipper Bath Free 
Hair:  Magika Susan Black A

Poses:  LAP and Glitterati

I am sure I will use many more of the prizes from these hunts in future posts.  There has been some snark lately where people say that if you don’t show every item from a hunt that you are somehow taking the “easy” way out.  I would disagree with that as putting together outfits from the hunt items, finding locations, poses, good lighting and trying to show the items well, is a long and laborious project.  I give mad props to those that take a photo of every item, but we can’t and shouldn’t all be blogging the same way…that would be no fun at all.  I would suggest that we all blog what we like, how we like and not worry so much about how other people are blogging.  Diversity is what makes SL interesting, isn’t it?

Decoy Sale, *salire and other Freebie and Cheapies

I haven’t really done a freebie post in a while, I don’t think.  I think I am still recovering from the holidays.  😛  But there are a few really nice things that I wanted to cover.

First up, this dress from the Death Becomes Her Hunt which I saw HERE and HERE!!!!  I haven’t had a chance to do any hunts lately, but this gown caught my eye.

Edit to add:  Apparently, this girl has a problem with the fact that I may have seen the dress on her blog.  Although I can’t get a good translation from babel fish, it appears that she doesn’t appreciate not being linked.  Well, if she is reading, since I can’t comment on her blog, I actually saw the dress on two other blogs and couldn’t remember which ones they were.  I usually link other blogs and did not in this case.  My bad. I have been under a lot of time constraints lately.  I will be sure to either not mention any other blogs in the future, or do a link if I can find the blog again.  But she is linked now.  If I find the other blog I saw the dress on, I will be sure to link that one also.   Sigh.  Blogging isn’t fun anymore.

~This dress is from A Touch of Ireland, and I think is very unusual and striking.  The diaphanous skirt moves beautifully and the corset style top has very nice details.  It also comes with a long sleeved undertop, which I am not showing, so this gown would be appropriate for medieval style role play. 
~I used the christmas gift necklace from Perturb/ation which is still out for free.  If you haven’t picked it up, you should.  It is a very lovely piece. 
~The hair is a new release from Magika called Alice II, featuring a color change head band and long, peek a boo bangs.  Thank you, Sabina!!
~The sim is a place called Life is Good which I saw on Banana Vella’s blog.  Very pretty for photos!  Good find, Banana!

Eyes:  Poetic Colors Aurora Eyes  Free

~Next up, Decoy is having a sale, which is going on until March, I think. But during this sale, when a new release comes out, one of the colors will be on super sale for 3 days after the release.  This time it is these fabulous jeans!  They will be only 25L for 3 days and I believe the release was today.  The other colors of these jeans are only 50L per pair or the fatpack is only 225L. 
~The sweater is also from the Decoy sale and was only 50L.  The signs say 75, but when you hit pay, it comes up as 50.   The hair is also from the Decoy sale and is 75L for a pack of 3 shades. 
~I put the sweater over the latest group gift from So Many Styles.  This is actually a dress and/or a baby doll top but since it came in all layers I was able to use it as a tank.  Join the in world group and check notices.
~The eyes are a new freebie from Poetic Colors that just came out today. 
~The boots are not free, but are a new release from Kalnins called Snowdrift.  They are HUD driven texture change and the 3 parts of the boot can all be changed separately for an endless number of color combos!

Mischief, Cynful and 60L Sunday

I hate to overblog Renee, she put so much work into that post!  She has the patience of a saint, I swear!  I would have gone mad trying to find all the amazing freebies in my wreck of an inventory. 
But I have a couple things in this post for 60L Sunday, so I gotta put it up.  

.

~This adorable dress is a new release from Mischief.  I adore the cutout back and the deep plunging neckline is super sexy, and it is topped by a cute little feathery skirt.  Perfect for parties!
~The necklace is from *ICED* and is their 60L Sunday special this week.  I know I am going to get a ton of wear out of this!
~The shape is by OMG! for 60L Sunday.  It is called Diana and I really like it a lot.  Very cute face on this shape and I love the eye shape.  This shape is modifiable also, so it is a really good deal at 60L!
~The location is a sim called Alternate Reality that I saw someone plurk about.  The sky is a megaprim and the northern lights they have put up are so pretty.  You need to increase your draw distance and graphics to see this correctly.

~Another couple of new releases at Mischief are these fabulous Workman’s pants, which I love.  Great texturing and they are a great alternative to jeans, and they come in a whole bunch of colors.
The sweater is called Eskimo Kisses and is also wonderfully textured.  It comes with a hood, but I am hopeless at fitting hair under hats or hoods, so I added a scarf.  This is available in 4 colors.
