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!

Glamour

Glamour

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.

I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.

I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.

These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.

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!
