Today is cancelled.(Freebie).

It’s simply too hot to “adult” so I’m not doing my usual Friday stuff and I’ve even canceled yoga! and once I’ve clicked “Publish” I’m off out into the garden but damn I wish it was the beach!

So I’m doing a quickie.  A simple crossover top from Ben’s Beauty.  A classic design in SL, as I say, comes with excellent texturing with the addition of a large hud of 31 and patterns to get you through summer.

Word of warning though as the LM takes you to the new stuff and ooo Tanya is a top that’s got me tempted to splash some SL cash.  100Lds for a fresh new design, with hud etc. However, I logged out before I caved into temptation.

To find this Freebie go into the main clothes shop and it with a couple of summer scarves are right there in the entrance.

PS Lots of standard mesh and non mesh bod fits.

Is it too soon? Noooo !

coldLogic kent (comes with scarf) NEW

I’m a big fan of Winter and as soon as we get into November I love to go shopping in Christmas markets and explore snowy sims. When I received the latest releases from coldLogic I was in hog heaven ! Heaps of woolies and sweaters yippeeee. Off I set to find some locations for my photos, first port of call I bumped into one of our blog readers Johanna , who was also out looking for a Christmas tree. A girl after my own heart, I asked her if she thought it was too soon for snowy snaps on the blog – her reply? “No wayyyy is it too soon!” – she went off on her tree mission and I settled down to taking pretty snaps. Anyhoooo onto the clothes, this is “kent”, a lovely bubbly striped look with a scarf to sling on – you don’t have to wear the scarf its an add on (same with all the sweaters in this post btw)

coldLogic wayne & jessop leggings Bens Beauty boots 20 colours !

Next I wriggled into “wayne”, succumbed to the pinkness of the blush tone and tugged on my jolly snowflake scarf. This is my absolute fav of all the sweaters, it’s just so snuggly buggly. I’m wearing it over the coldLogic “jessop” leggings from a few months ago, sort of fade in and out colour wash on them. Lots of colours to choose from in both sweater & leggings, the boots see below .

coldLogic muir (comes with scarf) mina carlijn hat hair NEW

This is “muir” I decided to show it without its matching scarf to give you an idea of how versatile these sweaters can be. I really love how the knit type varies on all of them, from nubbly to fine, makes them great for skirts, jeans or pants.

coldLogic wayne - Mina carlijn hat hair combo NEW!

Dont forget to check out the back details, I was so surprised when I twirled in this one called “parker” to see a beautifully shaped hem and little buttons. It really made me smile ! The scarf for this one is slightly longer with a looser wrap around your neck, gorgeous selection of colour choices too.

Slink – yes, Iam a convert !

KoiKoi group gift - for slink medium feet FREE!

I’ve long been curious about the phenomenon that is Slink, you know – the hands the feet? Absolutely ages ago I did try the demos for both. I’m really no slouch with skin tone matching or fitting shoes, but after an hour of trying to get the perfect look, I gave up in frustration.  Something that you should know at this point is: a) I do tend to harbour a grudge , for like…uhm…forever? ! b) I can be pretty lazy , shocked huh?. Thank goodness that I’m a member of SL Universe, if you don’t belong, join, it’s an external forum for all things SL related (and some that are not – but are SUCH fun!)

A couple of times threads would discuss Slink feet, and my eyes glazed over because I knew Id tried and failed. Sometimes I would pipe in and say I couldn’t get on with them and people would make helpful suggestions, but remember…”holds a grudge and lazy” right? Fast forward a few months, and since Shoetopia has been open the subject came up again, so I ventured forth and said Id given up with them…BUT…this time I noticed someone (Marianne I think) mentioned about a new alpha for the hands that revolved one issue Id had, and then Siddean Munro who makes the Slink items messaged me inworld and offered to help me also ! There was absolutely NO pressure to buy, she helped me try them on using a demo and I was stunned, within less than a few minutes, I had not only tinted them exactly to the skin I was wearing but they fitted like a dream. It’s all about the new HUD, which makes it soooo simpledimple to match skins, that’s if the skin you’re wearing doesn’t already have its own applier, if so just wear the applier and click. (even easier). Above I’m wearing the subscribo gift from newly opened KoiKoi. Just sign up and these babies are all yours. Arent they delish? Gorgeous plummy pink tone, superb suede leather effect .

KoiKoi Perfetti - gold Slink mid feet NEW!

I was so impressed I bought myself another pair by KoiKoi, these are called perfetti, they come in a range of scrummy colours but I so loved this classic gold for the season. Now check out my foot, this is what all the hoohah is about. The toes are sooper realistic and look at the skin above, can you see those teeny tiny veins? Once you have your Slink feet ( they come in three variations,flat,mid & recently added high which are, at the moment, only for sale at Shoetopia) you just buy the shoes – making sure you buy shoes for the foot you own , ie: if the shoe says “for Slink medium heel” you can only fit those shoes to that Slink foot. Wear your Slink tootsies , then add on the shoe shaper and shoes – et voila ! You can buy allll sorts of pretty add ons for Slink feet (and hands) huds with toenail polishes, although you do get a hud containing some with both the hands & feet. Kokolores has some spectacular mehndi foot tatts which I will try to blog ASAP. I also bought myself  some stockings and tights from Adam & Eve – and thats something I had been dearly missing with my GOS shoes.

Eclectica for Slink medium feet - Leather pumps and crushed velvt pumps - colour change

Now I’ve had these shoes by Eclectica in my inventory for like monthssss but couldn’t review them as I didn’t own the SLink feet – dug them out and I adore them. A real vintage style, retro but stands up today also. I’ve been wearing these with a rather slinky cocktail dress. Both pairs have a huge array of colour choices in their menus, for both trim, button and shoe colour.

GField Shoetopia gift FREE!

If you’re heading to the Shoetopia event,  snap up these sweet deck shoes from GField for free ! These are not for Slink feet, but very handy for slipping into at anytime.

Bens Beauty Group gift FREE!

Oh and because this is a shoe sort of post, I must mention these boots that are the group gift for Bens Beauty at the moment. (not sure about joining fee – I think its free) I didn’t know he had got into the shoe making business as it was all jewelry last time I popped over to the store, if these are anything to go by…Id better get over there and scope it out!

I’ve got a couple of them to share…to be honest…I cant recall some of the hunt names, BUT..on the wall not far from the main entrance is an array of hunt boards with hints & info..just take a gander and you’re good to go. This gorgy pink bikini was one item I found..lovely texturing on it…my earings are from Bens Beauty, love love LOVE them, so bright & zesty !

I also tripped over the gift for the leather & lace hunt, this vibrant lingerie set. Complete with bustier, net sleeves laced cuffs, thong & stockings…sweet!

A recent group gift (free join btw) was a 250L gift card…and I saw this beautiful crisp white lacey bra & panties set, it had to be mine! My stunning necklace is currently a gift from Ben’s Beauty…such a striking piece and I felt it complimented the clasps on my new lingerie so well…pop over when you get a few minutes…and take a look around…it looks to be a mesh free zone, so if you havent got into the whole mesh revolution yet..this might be the perfect place for you
