XOXO, Valentine ;)

Hey guys! It's almost valentines day, and the XOXO hunt is going on! This one is a little different from standard hunts; you go to each store on the list and say "XOXO" within chat range of the hunt sign! There's a 50/50 shot of getting the item, but you can try for each one every day until the hunt ends. Alternatively, if you don't want to wait, you can pay $L50 for each item. I manager to win a couple of gifts from the hunt, and wore them together with the group gift from PurpleMoon, and put together a gorgeous valentines outfit!

XOXO, Valentine ;)_001
My gown is the current group gift from PurpleMoon, and just in time for valentines! There are also optional flexi prims that attach to the shoulder and hip, under the roses, but they were too large for my small frame, so I decided to wear the gown without them. The gown includes standard as well as mesh body sizes, optional roses (shown), optional flexi prims (not shown) and gloves on both clothing layers, AND appliers! (not shown)

XOXO, Valentine ;)_002
In other news, Feb. 10th was my rezday! To celebrate, I bought myself an expensive present I've had my eye on for ages... the Lelutka Stella 2.0 Bento head! With it, I'm wearing Lumae's Yulia skin, which comes in her full line of tones, includes 8 lippies in a wide range of colours to match any look. I'm also nibbling on the Heartbeat cookie from Fetch for the XOXO hunt! You get 3 colours, with and without the EKG hearbeat on them, for a total of 6 options!

XOXO, Valentine ;)_003
Finally, I finished off the outfit with the sophisticated-yet-cute Hypnotic Hearts nails from Dark Passions! These are currently FREE in the XOXO hunt, you can try each day to win them, and I definitely encourage you to do so! The prize is a fatpack of appliers (slink, maitreya, and omega) in 9 different colours!

It's the last saturday sale of the year!

Hey guys! Happy NYE! Today is the last Saturday sale of the year, which is awesome because it's also the last DAY of the year (thank god, right?). There's a lot of great deals in this saturday sale, and it's also a bittersweet one, for me at least. Today is not only the last Saturday sale of the year, it's also AlterEgo & Enertia's last saturday sale, and the last day that they will be open. I've been a patron of AlterEgo for years and have too many of their skins to count, and the Saturday sale item from them is one that I actually suggester/requested personally. ♥

It's the last saturday sale of the year!_003
For their final saturday sale, AlterEgo has out the Mochi skin in several tones that it wasn't offered in before. I snatched up the Ivory tone literally as soon as Toxx put it out for sale. Her notice about the SS item apologized for not being able to do more, but for me, having my request fulfilled, and having her make my wish come true with the final item that the store would release means more to me than I can put into words here.

It's the last saturday sale of the year!_001
Next, I stopped over to Dark Passions to pick up their Saturday sale nails. The "Werk" the Spotlight set comes with belleza, maitreya, omega, and slink applier HUDs and includes 5 glittery colours!

It's the last saturday sale of the year!_002
Then I grabbed this cute sweater and skirt outfit, which is the saturday sale item from 1Hundred. It comes in sizes for most major mesh bodies, and is available separately in a bunch of colours.

Finally, I popped in to Reign to grab some shoes, because where else do you go for amazing shoes?? It just so happens that they are having a year-end blowout sale right now, and everything in the store is 50% off! I snatched up the fatpack of these shoes, as well as a few other items and high-tailed it before I could do too much damage to my wallet!

Let's hunt for some winter goodies!

Hey guys! There are a whole bunch of hunts going on right now for December, not to mention advent calendars, and more, the whole month is just a freebie-splosion! I've done a few hunts, and just wanted to share a cozy outfit I put together with prizes from some of them with you guys!

Let's hunt for some winter goodies!_001
First, these fun candycane-tipped nails are a prize in the candy cane hunt from Dark Passions! The pack includes Omega, Maitreya, and Slink HUDs and comes in 3 candy cane tipped neutral-toned nails, with and without a green stripe.

Here's a closeup of all of the options!

Next, my sweater and leggings are hunt gifts from Wicked! The olivia sweater, which is the enmeshed into winter hunt gift, comes in the 5 standard sizes, and one labeled fitmesh. The christmas-themed leggings are actually applier and system layer, and the hunt gift, from the candy cane hunt, includes 8 different pairs! (2 printed, 2 argyle, red, green, white, and grey).

Let's hunt for some winter goodies!_004
Next on my list isn't a hunt gift, but it IS a new release! The Vera boots from Little Sparrow Boutique are unrigged original mesh, will fit just about any avatar (big or small!), and come in 5 neutral suedes to match every outfit! There is also a FREE pair in one of the gift boxes under the christmas tree at their main store!

Let's hunt for some winter goodies!_002
Finally, I'm delighted to show off a new skin from Stix! This one is currently available at the Winter Solstice event and comes with system skins as well as appliers for just about every kind of mesh on the market, tons of brow options, monolid and regular lid options, 2 liner/shadow options, and 2 lip glosses, but only for a couple more days, and I'm topping it off with the Irena hair, which is one of the current gifts available to Truth hair VIPs!

Do you bento?

Hey guys! So, If you haven't heard yet, SL is implementing a new system called PROJECT BENTO, which adds bones for fingers, facial movements/sliders, tails, and wings. The default SL viewer with bento support has been out for a while, but the firestorm BETA viewer with the capabilities was just released recently. (For more info, and download links, please join the Phoenix-Firestorm Preview group!). I'm a die-hard firestormer, so I've been holding off on bento-ing myself until the release of the beta viewer, but now that it's here, I grabbed the bento-enabled Kioko head from Akeruka (which is on SALE right now guys, along with all of their bento heads!! Get them while the sale is on), and the Bento-enabled hands from Vista Animations, and have been playing around with them pretty much non-stop!

Do you bento?_001
I am wearing my favourite Pink Fuel skin via the omega/logo applier! I'm thrilled it works so beautifully. I've added omega-compatibility to my head by buying the omega relay for Akeruka [HERE]. The Kioko head comes with blinking options, several open mouth states, the ability to have the mouth move when you talk, lots of skintones, and a whole slew of makeup and freckle options, and more. For the price, it's an absolute steal! I'm using the face shape that's included with the head, but the head WILL respond to all of your shape sliders!!

Do you bento?_002
Extended fingers and a smile! The Vista prohands come with a regular version, a bento version, 4 tester animations that are fun to play with (You can see Strawberry Singh test out all of them in her youtube video [HERE]). It also includes a HUD with tons of skin presets, 4 nail lengths, a skin-tinting thingie, 18 nail polishes, glove and tattoo layer toggles, and a dozen hand poses! Each nail can be polished individually, and your hands can move independently. I'm actually using the poses designed for bento use from Sari-Sari, there's 6 in the pack and they're super cute

Wiggly Fingers~! One thing to note is that these hands ARE still in beta, and one negative that i noticed is that the nails sink into the fingers a little bit in some poses. However, the creator has been really receptive to customer feedback, and all updates are included and FREE. Definitely try the demo to see if these are right for you. These DO fit mesh bodies!

While you're looking at my wiggly fingers, check out my nails! These are new from Dark Passions and are currently available at the Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly event! I am wearing a set from the "Shades of Gray" palette. I've marked the one above with a red box!

Alaskametro rocks my rack!

Hey guys, after realizing my last two posts glitched out and never actually posted, I've been kinda not really inclined to blog lately, BUT, I just wanted to drop a quick post (assuming it doesn't glitch) and let you know about some really sexy stuff at the Rock Your Rack event! Proceeds benefits the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a cause close to my heart.

Alaskametro rocks my rack!_001
Alaskametro's exclusive item, which has a 100% donation is a gorgeous lace bralette which comes in 6 different colours and includes appliers for damn near everything! I'm wearing the peach above, although the windlight on the sim has changed the colour a bit.

Looking De-Luxe!

Hey guys! This month's Luxe Box has just been released and it's gorgeous as always! I'm wearing a few gorgeous pieces from this month's box, as well as Lumae's skin from this round of Genre, and some beautiful nails from Dark Passions for LoveFest! This simple but lovely look basically came together as if by magic, I swear... Everything fell into place the moment I put it on, and now I don't want to change!

Looking De-Luxe!_001

Looking De-Luxe!_003
I'm rounding out my gorgeous mostly monochromatic look with the Reign Ribbon heels from the Luxe Box! These include sizes for Slink (regular and hourglass), Maitreya, and Belleza (all of them!!!), and the pack comes with HUDs that match both Reign colours AND blueberry colours! I seriously don't want to take these off!

Looking De-Luxe!_004
The Showgirls skin from Lumae (for Genre - Burlesque) definitely feels like a throwback to the cheesecake/pinup days, and I absolutely adore it. It comes in tones 4, 5, 6 and 7, and while I DO wish it came a bit lighter (I usually only wear tones 1-3) I think it's fabulous! Lumiya has been incredibly generous and has done each tone as a full pack and included everything that normal packs do, but at just $L100 per tone for the duration of the event, these are an AMAZING steal!
Looking De-Luxe!_002 
 The Key to the Nile nails from Dark Passions for LoveFest add just the perfect touch of gold for this outfit. At LoveFest you can find the full pack of styles in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega for $L100 each, OR pick up the pack of all of them for just $L275!
