Fridays child is …

FLF NEW

What was Fridays child? Ohhhh wasn’t it “loving and giving”? Well this Friday is very giving for sure…yes chickadees its Fifty Linden Friday – my favourite event of every week ! Zan and I both look forward to it, and each week scoot around to see what the designers have placed out. If you join the FLF group you will get a hand dandy notecard listing all stores participating – they do differ from week to week. This week I’ve already snapped up a few items, this sweet dress is from Valentina E, it’s called Gillian and is in a gorgy floral lilac & pink fabric. Darling puffed sleeves and a high frill neck – it’s just divine.

FLF

I also bought the set of three flat pumps for Slink feet from Boom – yes three colours for just 50L ! They really went with my new frock so I was such a happy bunneh. All sorts of items crop up in this event, I treated myself to some new poses , I spied some rather splendid decor pieces that I will have to get back too. Forgot I had this bicycle from what next, actually there are bikes for all seasons there, go check them out, the poses are SO lovely !

Wipe out.

board

Decided to pop over to the Okinawa Summer Festival and spent a lovely hour or so wandering around all of the stalls and shops.  Unlike my last post I did spend a lot and picked up so much that I can’t really show you it all now!

Board2

One of my problems is although I bought a number of items, like the adorable summer hat in the last picture most of the stuff I got was from Gachas or LBs or even the free gifts that are strewn about the place and I can’t give you the direct link to that stall.  So you’re just going to have to TP in and have a wander around.  Fortunately the Free surf board and poses are pretty close to the landing spot and I’ve chosen the ones which have the board alone some of the come complete with wearable board and waves! so you should be able to find that freebie however the rest you will have to wander for.

Board3

This hat comes from the Pink Ribbon 21 stall and was a Gacha win I would have been happy to win any of them.  This one has the simple cute ears and only cost me 50Lds. Again sorry I can’t give you the direct TP to the Pink Ribbon 21 stall but they have laid the whole place out in a lovely grid pattern to make sure you don’t miss anything.  You can even grab a scooter or bike at the landing spot to zip around.

Make sure to check out all of the stalls as there is a number of Lucky Boards and free gifts waiting to be found.

I was also going to mention the adorable bikini I’m wearing which come or rather came from Boom.  I can only assume I’ve had it in my invent for so long it’s not available in the shop anymore which is such a shame but then again Boom has so many brilliantly fitting mesh bikinis in a whole range of colours and patterns and if I had known this wasn’t available anymore I would have put one of them on instead.   You may want to pop over and check them out but if you do do it quickly as Arenel Ah was a little bit late putting out her FLF so she’s left it out for an extra day so for a token 50Lds you can treat yourself to a satiny pink pair of summer sandals for SLink Med feet.

Sweet Justice.

cine

I don’t think I really did these divine summer dresses from Miseria really the justice that they deserve in my last post.  A basic spring/summer dress but check out the colour so pretty and  gorgeous in their simplicity.  You can see in this picture the lovely draping and all of this the colour, texturing and the way the clothes hang shows the quality.

pink

I wasn’t even going to try on the pink  but I’m so glad I did as this isn’t a bubble gum childish pink it has a touch of nude which makes it such a subtle pink. This one doesn’t have the pale stripe going through it like the Orange and there is also a blue colour but I’ve not tried that one on yet.  So of course I popped over to Miseria and snagged myself some new poses and then wondered how I had missed all of Athena’s new clothes.  Simple Spring/Summer dresses, skirts, tops and bags all understated excellent quality texturing, sweet and wearable.  She has a simple strapless dress with the subtlest of ombre shading I’ve seen and it’s this touch which makes her clothes stand out.  Make sure to  check out the other shop on this shopping sim because this is a collection of shops with some of the best quality of clothing, hair, skins, clothes etc all in the same place so a lovely place to while away some time and maybe treat yourself.

Woo Hoo I am away on a weekender in a pretty Northern town with plenty of shops, markets, countryside, bakeries and on and on so this is  just a last cheeky “bum” shot till I get back  but as it happens this cute sharks fin comes from Miseria and it comes from one of her Gacha machines near the entrance.  Just a fun young accessory.

Boom.

I always love getting sent gifties off Boom, Mysteria or even Piddle because I know that it’s gonna be good.  So I tried on the shorts and shirt, oo’d over the bag and then put it all away.  Since I’ve got so much left on my Boom Credit I decided it’s time to haul ass and see whats new and this is my “goto” winter outfit.

Boom useI have an almost identical pair of those trousers in RL (although not as flared!) and although I don’t walk around with my navel so exposed I know that with a woolie or in this case a jacket they can look so great not only in SL but RL.  The trousers are called “Norfolk Tweeds” and there is a complete range of colours from winter/autumnal colours to pastels and creams.  All of course come as demos and even fat packs.  The jacket  is whats got me because it comes from the Cartel Collection which I wasn’t sure if it was a boom design or if I could use my store credit and happily I could.  I just knew that this zingy orange coat (full name is Chinese Short Coat in Firework) would look stunning with the trousers or even just jeans.  Such an unique look that stands out from the crown.  A total of 4 colours in this style of jacket but there are other jackets in a similar vein with more colour options.  This is a strange one because “one size fits all” and as far as I can tell that’s exactly the case.

Now look closely at the hair. Faith managed to blog the previous Mina hair before me so as soon as I got this I sent her a note which said something along the lines of “back off the Mina hair Biatch”.  Mina isn’t of course the only hair I love in SL but what I love most about her hairs is the colouring.  She does everything from the more sedate blondes to the extreme gingers and all the colours in between. Her hair is like a great RL hair dye job in that there are so many colours blended together to make the overall colour.  This one is called Josje  and I’ve used a different shade in each picture but please be brave and try out ALL of the colours before you make your choice because you maybe suprised at how good some of the colours you normally wouldn’t have looked at previously can look.

PS don’t forget to check out the upstairs there is a particularly lovely windy hair and hat up there which I am buying right now.

A few of my fav things.

I already have this same dress but in another gorgeous texture and I loved it so much that when Pure put this rose patterned one out I snagged it up.  What makes it extra special is hidden behind me but since I can’t find the photo in my media folder then if you check out my Flickr link what you see is the big fat juicy bow at the back.  With deep folds and rich colouring  these are just so divine and the icing on the cake is that this is Pure’s 60Lds weekend offer so grab it quick.

Absinth

And then I realised that in this photo is some of the items I really lovely in SL.  The Absinth set and table comes from Post. At this rate both Faith and I will own everything Post puts out. This comes from Van Auster’s profile “European, Historical, Japanese, Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco, Bohemian, Churches, Venetian Palazzo,Distressed Buildings, Curios, Antiques, Found Objects, Ennui, Ex-pat” and all I can say is you have to visit to get to see the real quality in his builds. Then there is the rich and elegant Mesh long gloves.  200Lds for a single colour or 400Ld for a fat pack and they’re just such a fantastic look they really finish off an outfit.  dress

Yeah for me as I had lost this photo and I so wanted you to see the bow from behind and I’ve managed to recover it and reload it and it’s so worth it.

Just a note about updating your SL Viewer. I finally bit the bullet and uninstalled Firefox and updated to the newer version and fingers crossed so far so good. I’ll pop a couple of Links below to help you if like me you have been avoiding the inevitable.

OH Phil!

OH PhillipI bumped, humped and grinded my behind into his face and yet Phil managed to ignore me, looks like I have to pay my own tier fee this month.  What I should have done is stand up and flash the front of my skirt which because of the unlacedness means you can flash a little bit of muff (like me) or if you’re a good girl some pretty undies.

OH Phil! I went for the freebies at dollies and yet again ended up being tempted (the skirt above was only 100Lds so that’s hardly a bank breaking amount).  This dress is the freebie and is a  lovely striped cami dress. A basic tight-fitting dress with a draped top half.  As always with dollies this is shop quality texturing and not some naff cheapie brought in.  She is offering not only this colour but if you wander around her Brand New Shop and hunt out the little red dollie logo name dotted around you can get this colour and the rest 5 diff colours in total and they’re so bright and lovely I’m going back for the green and brown ones later.  You do have to join her group to grab the freebies but you’d be daft (that means silly) not to as she has some lovely group gifts out and the group if free to join so it’s a win win situation.

Bag use

OH Lord I almost forgot about the adorable clutch bag.  It slips over your hand and when I zoomed in closely you can even see the zipper tab.  Best of all comes with a colour changing hud.  This doesn’t change the main bag colour but changes the bow.  3 different colour choices makes it a lot more versatile and economical than a single bag on its own.  I’m not an accessory sorta person I even forget most of the time to use them in pictures but loving these simple and yet detailed little bags.  I still have my prize money from Boom left over so time to pay them another visit.  OK so I’m now standing in Boom and WOW what a selection of colours you can chose from for this little bag.  Too many to list tbh.  All are beautifully textured and so tempting from subtle browns to juicy colours. 125 a single bag but for a small amount more, 200Lds Princess pack, you can get 3 shades or if you’re feeling flush then the Goddess pack at 800Lds will be for you and thats a massive amount of colours and hud variations. I’m sticking with being a Princess:-)

I Lied!

Only about it being the last photo of a boat.

SaluteA final salute to my little blue boat that bobs so sweetly but just imagine this, 3 of these little boats is almost the same prims as my lovely new boat.  So time to pack it away.

And the check out my sexy outfit.  YES I really did have to buy a sailor outfit to go with my new boat but my denfence is I saved money on the shoes because I already had them.  An outfit from Boom non mesh with sulptie skirt panel and puffy sleeves and a rich royal blue colouring.  Made even cuter with the hat which sadly doesn’t come inc with the dress but makes the outfit look just extra special.

I’m giving you the MP as well as the inworld main shop because I wandered around but couldn’t find them in the main shop but I know that this is one of their newer designs so they have to be there but check them out on the MP if like me you can’t locate them
