Island Invasion

Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

A House-Hoarder’s Home

What you probably don’t know about me is that I’m something of a house-hoarder. My inventory is bulging with houses; I see a house, and I just have to have it. I’ve never lived in most of them, and in fact, have never even rezzed some of them. But I keep buying them in hopes that I’ll find the perfect SL house for the season or whatever I’m feeling at the moment. I’m pretty sure I need some sort of intervention.

New House!

I had just bought 4 new houses when I found out that L2 Studios was (finally!) releasing their new summer house. I quickly tp’d over to the demo and it was… PERFECT! Behold: the Padre Island House. This house is mesh and weighs in at 118 LI.

New House!

I’m finishing up the landscaping and exterior decor. I’ve barely started on the inside. It doesn’t help that I keep changing my mind about what I want.

New House!

This fun dock is on sale from Alouette for 200L for The Neighborhood. It includes 21 animations, and seats 4 avatars. As of this morning, the sale price was still in effect.

I’m pretty sure this is my RL dream house. :-)

Until We Meet Again…

My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we're CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four.

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

Duh! It’s Alice!

Blogging soon

Happy Saturday! Spring has finally sprung (thank goodness!), and I’m enjoying a beautiful day in the garden in this sweet Alice dress and leggings, the April group gift from FA Creations. I think Thumper behind me approves. ;-) I’ve added these cute, straw flats, a brand-new release from Duh! The shoes come in a version for Slink flat feet, as well as a version for regular feet, so no feet have to go without looking so pretty. You also get a HUD with 11 different spring colors… all for only 25L. Oh, and if you’d like to try before you buy, head over to Duh! and grab the free pair in beige in the subscribo. Duh! subscribers should already have received them, but if not, check the history for a redelivery.

My pretty key necklace is the latest group gift from ::Fabuleux::. If you look real closely, you’ll see the tiny dollar sign. Cute! This gorgeous skin is Nomi, the latest release from Izzie’s. I have worn lots of Izzie’s skins in the past, but the one is by far my favorite; the luscious lips and the eyebrows are really well done. Lots of make-ups included, and Izzie always does a great job on the freckles that we gingers love so much! :-)

I’m Blossom-ing

finesmith_mar4_001f

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! I’ve been dying to see some spring, so I decided to show you this gorgeous Blossom gown and headpiece, which are the March group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. :-) And just as I was finishing up these photos, I got a note that the April group gift is out at Finesmith, so be sure to pick that one up too, while you’re there! My pose is from the March gift pack at Diesel Works Animations. Be sure to grab yours before the gift is gone!

This pretty Mimi skin by Belleza is still available at The Arcade Gacha Event. I have added a glossy lipstick by Lumae, which you can find in a free pack of 6 colors at The Skin Fair. Last day for both events is TODAY, so hurry over! BTW, I am smiling ever-so-slightly for the FabFree Photo Challenge #7: Show Us Your Smile. Sadly, I’m a day late for the challenge, but hey, better late than never, right? :-D

I <3 NY, and I Got Milk!

Blogging soon!

Oh my goodness, how is it Friday already?! It seems like this week has just flown by… probably because I’ve been stuck at home with a sick kid… but enough about that! This cute outfit, which includes leggings, sweater, and boots, is the generous Womenstuff Hunt gift from Hawker’s House. The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31, and there are some truly fabulous gifts available from 200 amazing designers, all for only 1L each. Some designers are even offering exclusive items which you will only be able to find during the hunt. Trust me, this is one hunt you DO NOT want to miss! :-)

ws_hawkers_fleur2blush_hands_001f

This cute updo is a group gift from *Milk* Hair. The group is free to join, and let me just say this: FAT PACK. That’s right, the gift comes in just about every color imaginable! So run… ok, tp… to Milk as fast as you can before you miss this fantastic gift! My fun ring and earrings are Marketplace gifts from .Olive. There is also a bracelet, but I figured it would just hide under my sleeve, so I’m not wearing it (but I did pick it up!). Called Maybe They’re Real, I can’t tell if they look like rocks or some type of reptile skin, but they’re cute – and unusual! – just the same. They also come in a dark gray color with red stones.

Need nails? I thought these appliers from .::Ceiling::. were fun, and they’re only 1L on the Marketplace! Appliers for your toesies are also included. :-D

My skin is the lovely Fleur, an new release from Bite & Claw for The Skin Fair. She will be released in the usual B&C 5 tones, but I’m only showing a preview of tones 2 (light) and 4 (dark). I’m typically a fair-skinned girl, but I have to say that tone 4 is really nicely done. There are several make-ups and the usually appliers available for this skin. FWIW, The Skin Fair opened today (March 14), and I’ve been trying to get in all day today with no success. It runs until March 30, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for us all to pay a visit!
