Traveling…

Traveling...
Photo by Astrid de Manyet

Travel has been an important part of my life, as has art. When I was in London, I visited the National Museum and relished the beautiful artwork. I have traveled to various museums around the world as I had the opportunity to enjoy the artwork – paintings, sculpture and more – whenever opportunity arose.

Because of this, I love when a new installment of Cica Ghost is ready and am always up to going to visit! One of my favorite pictures of an adventure I shared with Damian is taken at a Cica Ghost sim from a time long past (hard to believe we’ve known each other so long Damian!).

So I landed at the latest installment – Dogwood – and lo and behold, I landed on Cica Ghost themselves! Cica was friendly and personable and said Hello and nice to meet you. I didn’t want to disturb and went about my business taking pictures because they were busy putting the finishing touches on the sim – I think? And also greeting people who were landing. It was really lovely! I mean how awesome is it to be greeted by Cica Ghost!

One of my favorite stores – Ricielli – is having a summertime hunt. I love this particular hunt as Ricielli is doing something I haven’t seen before. They are offering two options. For 15L per hunt item you can purchase the copy version or the no copy/transfer version. I got the transfer versions and handed out the extra items to friends! In each package there were copies of clothing items for different mesh bodies, so I kept the Maitreya copy and passed the copy of the Slink Hourglass, Isis, and Freya to friends! Win Win!

The Womenstuff hunt ends on the 30st of November, so this will be you last chance to pick up the free- and dollarbies.

My avatar is wearing closed version from a free red shirt from Pink Cream Pie, but there is a also an open version included for whoever feels a little more sexy during these cold months. It comes in the sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hg
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The heels are also a Womenstuff hunt gift that can be found at DE. Boutique. That is… if you will be able to find the hidden hunt item that is in the form of a little T-shirt.

For those that will not be able to make it on time before that hunt ends, worry not, there will be PLENTY more hunts and events when December begins. One of the events that has already started, is the SaNaRae event and they also have some free gifts out.

I picked up this nice choker from Supernatural that I wanted to show. It comes with two huds to choose a color for the bow and tons of colors for the gem. I also found these really nice ripped leggings from Rekt that also includes a hud with 7 colors to pick from. It didn’t say what size it was, but I assume it’s just Maitreya since it fit my avatar’s body perfectly.

Siren Song

Siren

Sirens are not mermaids… yet the walk the line between water and land, being able to both have fins and legs. I found this free dress at Barbed Wire Kisses as part of the Siren Song Hunt and imagined that it would definitely be something that a Siren would wear if she were on land. At least for a time…

I was at the same store and found a little Balloon that I was able to buy for free as part of the Anything Goes Hunt and discovered that it had matching shoes inside, because who says a Siren has to go barefoot.

And just for some thinking… How are Siren’t Different from Mermaids? Here is some perspective:

Dressing Room

Dressing Room

As a little girl I always loved to play dress up.

Thankfully, one of my favorite shops lets me do that on a monthly basis. For just 100L as their group fee, Glitterati by Sapphire puts out an amazing group gift, AND gives you access to all the past group gifts for several years. There are at least over 100 gifts by now for that one small fee. And they are all gorgeous. In addition to the group gift, there is also a promotion that runs with the gift. This month you could buy matching heels for just 55L if you wanted.

This month’s dress includes Omega appliers and a lovely flexi skirt for beautiful flow around the legs. You’ll also get a jeweled flower for your neckline.

Scream and Shout

Scream

Sometimes you just want to SCREAM! Yeah! That’s why I love this cool mini shirt gift I found at Damour. It’s a gift free from the Gentlemen Designer group but it’s unisex as you get appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Omega. If you go to Damour Designs, go to the group gift wall. Click the Gentlemen Designer group square. You’ll get an invite to the group. Join for free. Click again, you’ll get the free gift! A bit tricky to find, but well worth it.

If you’re not a member of 1L for 1Hour group… why not? It’s a great way to snag up some steals! Copy and paste secondlife:///app/group/443636a5-0d9f-1455-e459-3367facadfc6/about into chat and join the group. You’ll catch 1L deals that only last an hour. That’s how I found the Damour shorts I’m wearing in the pic above. They come in several mesh sizes including a perfect Maitreya fit, and include a 10 color hud. These shorts aren’t out anymore, but I believe a new 1L deal is out atm!

If you love great jewelry, you probably love Maxi Gossamer. Be sure to pick up June’s free gift. I’m wearing the pretty pearl drop earrings and rings in the picture above. They resize and also come in either silver or gold. The group is free to join.

Be sure to stop by Pure Poison and pick up the newest group gift as well. This is another free to join group and this time it’s a gacha gift. You’ll get a great pair of color change heels…… but you won’t know what pair of heels you’re going to get until you spin the gacha with your group tag on! Good luck with your spin!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday a Day Late!

Yesterday was my birthday. I spent most of the day with family and friends and in quiet getaways… though the evening was spent at a busy gathering and dinner. I was given flowers that reminded me of the tattoo I picked up at the Gacha Garden. I wanted to put together an outfit to show it off and found some perfect SL freebie “birthday gifts” for myself!

Birthday Gifts!

FurtaCor has out a new TeleportHub gift out and the Teleport Hub group is only 10L to join and when you teleport in there is a wall of gifts you can pick up. Pick up the lovely Alexandra Set and you get the dress with a huge array of colorchange options as well as the garters and heels. A pair of panties too. It supports all the major Mesh bodies.

I made a quick trip to the Gacha Garden… it’s been out a while so you’ll want to stop by quick to pick up the gifts. Join the free group and pick up the free gifts all around the sim.

Gimme Mooooooooore Gifts!

In the picture above I’m sporting gifts from the Gacha Garden… the Analog Dog gift of a free hair (it comes in a full pack of colors). A pretty free necklace by Supernatural (it comes in gold with a color change hud for the gems). Sorry I didn’t get a close up, but you can zoom in on the flickr picture for that. I’m also wearing a free tattoo from the Nanika display. I love the flowers on this tattoo and it comes in faded, medium, and fresh applier layers… and you’ll get applier layers for multiple bodies and also for omega.

Booked for the Week

Booked for the Week_Budget LOTD

Always time for tea…

I happen to really like Port Babbage. It has lots of little nooks and crannies and I frequently visit the sim because I’m always finding something new. This morning I visited The Royal Scandinavian Tea House and admired the piles of books that were stacked about the little shop. It reminded me of all the books I currently have on my shelf that are on my “to read” list. I have a good number of those books read, but still quite a few that I’m needing to read. The next one up on my list is The Magick of Faeries by Cassandra Eason.

Always in Style too.

Tea houses call for a certain style of course, and you won’t want to miss out on these gifts, including a great freebie from BYRNE. This pretty floral dress is the free May subscribo gift. If you didn’t get it in your inbox, just drop by the main-store and hit the scubscriber to pick it up for free. It comes in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies.

And shoes!

My shoes were a free group gift from Lisan for May. You get both a red pair and a black pair (shown) in the box. These will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, and have a dramatic platform and high heel. The group is 35L to join, but Lisan has been giving beautiful monthly group gifts in multiple colors to make it worth joining!
