GROUP GIFT: Falling Into Fall@ COCO

 

Can you believe that this dress is a freebie from the COCO UPDATE GROUP? It’s *perfect* for wearing with some boots and crunching through some leaves. It’s got an open back which looks very on trend, albeit a tad cold for the change in the season. There’s an entire wall jam-packed with freebies at COCO, so it’s definitely worth joining the group to check them all out.

Here’s your TAXI!

Dancing On My Own

Waiting..Make no mistake guys and gals, March is going to be a BIG month.  First of all, we’ve got the first THE ARCADE round of 2016, and the previews suggest that it is going to be an absolute belter. Then we have SKIN FAIR 2016, which I’m incredibly excited by, and that’s just TWO of the events that will be depriving us of our hard earned cash!  This all means of course that I have to be very careful with my pennies, so I’m trying to refrain from shopping as much as possible at present.  This isn’t easy, especially when you consider I haven’t even made it into UBER yet, and virtual shopping for me is very much an itch that I have to scratch, often!waiting_007So cheap and cheerful was on the cards for me today. I wanted to try and replicate the monochromatic colour trend that’s doing the rounds at the moment. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s when you have the same colour on eyes, lips and nails. It’s a very uniform look, and when it’s done correctly it’s rather beautiful. Problem was, I didn’t want to spend an absolute shit ton on new skins or appliers for my LELUTKA ‘Stella’ head. Not to worry, I found exactly what I was after at DEESSES, which is firmly becoming an absolute favourite of mine for all things applier. For the princely sum of L$99 each i purchased the ‘Fleek’ eyeshadow palette, and the ‘Sexey’ lip palette and applied them to my mush. Et voila, monochromatic marvellousness without too many Lindens spent and how professional do my chops look? I think I look bloody beautiful! Of course, it helps that skin I am sporting, (DEETALEZ ‘Jolie’ Lelutka head applier and European tone Maitreya Lara body  applier)provide the perfect base, but you can’t fail to be impressed by the finished look. I’m also sporting a freebie in this picture too, the glorious ‘Hanky Panky’ lingerie set from BLACKLACE. I’ve been wearing this brand of virtual lingerie for absolutely donkey’s years and they continue to go from strength to strength. They’re also very generous with the group gifts too, as this set proves. I’m wearing it on my virtual booty courtesy of the Omega applier system, and it’s very swish indeed. It’s sheer , so you get a delicious hint of what lies beneath..naughty then, but not too OTT, although the stockings and suspenders really take it up a level. I’m really into my virtual undies at the moment with  DEAD DOLLZ, MILK TEA and of course,  BLACKLACE being real favourite brands of mine so I’m often to be found dancing around my skybox in my almost naked on a rainy Saturday afternoon… Anyway, TL;DR: You don’t need to spend a fortune to look good. Check out your groups for gifts like this one, and hit up places like DEESSES for appliers that can really make all the difference to your look! Enjoy!

Witchy Weekends: ‘Morgana’ by Baiastice

Altar_003
SECOND LIFE is going absolutely mad bonkers  for Halloween this year, it really is.  Not that that is a bad thing, no siree! It’s fantastic and each year there are even more ghoulish treats and vampiric tricks to discover across the grid. It really is a favourite time of year for me, for obvious Witchy reasons. Halloween, or Samhain, is a very important Pagan festival and I love that SECOND LIFE is a place that celebrates it in such a vivid way.
Many group gifts are distributed at this time of year too so be sure to check out your group notices to make sure you haven’t missed out on anything! For a start, you definitely DON’T want to miss out on this lovely lingerie set from BAIASTICE.  It’s called ‘Morgana’, but is beautiful to wear at any time of the year, and is a delicate lacy ensemble comprising pants and top and also an absolutely MASSIVE witch hat too (not shown).
In fact, there’s another group gift in this picture; if you’re a member of ‘Lofty Spaces’, which is the group for fans of THE LOFT, be sure to check notices and get yourself this set of funky white pumpkin candles that spell out the word ‘Boo!’ (They’re behind my ‘Pumpkin Mice’ from PILOT, not a group gift but definitely worth getting!) As you can see I’m starting to decorate my home for Halloween, but I’m not going too crazy, yet…
The divine skin I’m sporting in this snap is yet another Shantia Soulstar special! This ZOUL CREATIONS skin is called ‘Becca’ and she’s a beauty, as you can see.
The brows are a treat on this one, with a really lovely shape and tone and of course all the eye-make ups and lip colours are simply divine. She’s currently available for purchase at THE MAKEOVER ROOM event, which is a discount event where prices are 300L per 2 skintone packages, with it costing just 50L for a make-up package eyeshadow/lipsticks,  after which she’ll appear in the main store.  Keep an eye on this blog for more looks featuring beautiful Becca over the next few posts.
The hairstyle I’m sporting is a prize from this year’s round of TAG! GACHA.  This is the prize from CLAWTOOTH; I dropped lucky and landed ‘The Good Witch’ pack in ‘Dark Ombre’ and I it’s a lovely long style that sits beautifully over the shoulders. A cracking Gacha prize and as you can imagine I was very chuffed when I got it!  Lastly, this is pose #6 from an old ELEPHANTE POSES set called, you guessed it ‘Witchcraft’ which I hope is still available!

Witchy Wednesdays: Twig Star Light Group Gift From Tarte

1956873_1003658229650997_627982388051715559_oAs symbols go I’m probably right in saying that there’s nothing more prominent than a Pentagram for declaring your witchy inclinations.

Of course, a Pentagram doubles up as a star too and oftentimes you can use star shapes as a way of subtly declaring your beliefs. This Group Gift from Tarte is, of course, completely fitting for the festive season, but once Yule has ended you could keep this light glowing as a focal point in your virtual home. It’s really lovely isn’t it? The group is free to join too,  so it’s a proper treat (as are most things from Tarte) It’s difficult to find inspired mesh pieces to decorate your witchy abode in Second Life, but I think this is an absolute must-have and the fact that it’s made from twigs adds an extra bit of elemental oomph.

Be sure that you don’t miss out on this! Click HERE to visit Tarte, join the group and check the notices for this fabulous gift.
