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.

Oooo Nursey.

NurseyBored(again) so I mooched on the Marketplace and found some goodies. One of which is this mesh Nurses dress and it’s only 50Lds.  I’ve not really looked at many nurses outfits so I don’t know how many are out there but what I do know is 50LDS for this is a bargain.  Standard Mesh sizing cute sexy or even just for RPing.  The stethoscope is an actual Dollarbie as well so the whole look for 51Lds and if white isn’t your colour then she has a light blue version.  I only wish I had remembered to put on my bloodied rubber gloves.

HairBecause the prop light behind me was flooding the picture I decided to take a better one of the hair because not only is it cute and adorable but it’s FREE.  A new hair shop (to me that is)  called.  The group costs 250Lds to join and there is a group gift of a lovely pony tail hair and this hair is up there as well but as a blogger I click on everything this this one is FREE for all.   Due is a small shop with a relatively small selection but damn they’re ALL great.  Because I don’t have unlimited funds I settled for one hair (I’m wearing it in my previous post) and this freebie.  Her style is young and fresh lots of long hair that lays beautifully around your AV.  I will be going back there to get some more at a later date so I will post about them at a later date but till then grab this cutie.

LBD

I have left it too late for people to be able to snag this hunt gift since today is the last day but all is not lost because apart from the colour there is identical dresses on offer as a group gift and really recommend you grabbing them.

IntrepidIt’s a LBD (little black dress) plain and simple and yet this is a corker because it’s cool, sexy, simple, elegant and so wearable.  With built in curves so even without your Lola Tango Boobies it still makes you look like a million bucks. I should have done a close up because the black has a very fine pin stripe to it and it’s got real texturing and not cheap matt black textured look to it.  Comes Lola Tango ready but as always looks stunning without.

Intrepid 2I’m just not really doing the texturing justice in my photos but check this out the corset, skirt and shoes are all in the set and ALL are top quality fit and texturing and all come as a complete outfit for only 60Lds! Each item would be worth the 60Lds on their own but to get the whole lot as a package is a bargain.  You have a choice of colour sets and I chose this beige/chocolate set but have to confess I might go back for more.  The corset has ruffles and is Lola Tango Ready (again equally as wearable without) the skirt has 2 zips and the boots have a beige stripe on the heel. Shannon Byron (Şɦαηησɳ ℱαυşţ (shannon.byron)) has been extra kind because you have all the Alpha layers needed to wear each item individually or as a partial set or the whole lot.  So many looks for so little.

Soul is the shop name and they have a very simple price because everything is 60Lds.  Everything is mesh which means it all comes with demos and I tried on all the demos and everything is TOP NOTCH with the fittings and texturing and loads of Lola Boobie stuff.  Very generous in that a lot of the outfits come as complete looks so you have a bikini with sarong, hat, and shoes or trousers with top and shoes etc. You must check out her MP shop to see her range and grab the demos you won’t regret it.

Almost!

Faith blogged the funny Gacha chair and the free seriously low primed unique  record case and I blogged a so pretty off the shoulder pastel dress and a really cheap skirt and jumper set and yet I missed posting about this cute mesh freebie.

cornerYou actually get 2 dresses in the pack a black version and this beige polka dot one.  Just simple to wear and cute and FREE.

cornSo I popped back to La Petite Fleur to make sure all  the lovely freeness is still available and it is.  You don’t even have to be a group member to grab them all but you never know the offers you may get if you do join. This second dress isn’t free but at 30Lds it may as well be.  A simple and sweet dress, great bright blooms, bow at the shoulder and slight runching at the hem.  Affordable, wearable just like most things in their shop.

If you have a very limited budget then don’t fret because there is a few more free outfits and 2 LBs and whilst your waiting for your initial to come up you can sit in the lovely cafe, garden setting outside.

Last Jumper For Winter New Jumper For Spring

JumperQuickest post ever because as soon as I logged inworld and went through my notices and spotted this I had to run and get it.  Thank Goodness Leri Miles was away for a few days which means she was late in placing out her Lazy Sunday item so she’s kept it going for a couple more days. A lovely knitted cropped sweater, great texturing and a great look for spring.  Not sure how long she is keeping it out or how much it will be full priced but if your quick you can grab it at the bargain price of 75Lds.  Right next to it is another offer of a slashed hemmed top for 60Lds with a great choice of fresh colours.

If it wasn’t for the fact this is “poverty week” in RL, that means payday isn’t till the end of the week, I would have picked up a couple  of items for my own personal use as even in my overstuffed invent I can see things I could wear often.  OH! and join her Group because at 50Lds the dress you get is worth it and who knows what other goodies you may get in the future.

Blew It!

My budget that is.  However my excuse is I found some really great stuff at even better prices.

Perga 1

This is what happens when you “pop” into Collabor88 you find something so good you have to buy it. A cross over copper coloured  metallic mesh dress.  The dark black outline, buttons and crisp collar look so good.  I chose this colour but they have some more dramatic colour choices  The boots are a must because this finish off this look to perfection and they too come if matching colours to the dresses.  They are a separate buy but at 88Lds for each item that still works out at a more than reasonable price for a great look. Better hurry though because once removed they will go back to full price.

Perga11The strange thing is I had just been to Rei2 Aya shop, R2 Fashion, and seen this outfit just before I TPed to Collabor88.  So fate decided I had to buy it.  Cheeky cheeky and more cheek. A strapless dress but that short skirt with the exaggerated flare means you can show your undies off or if you really cheeky dare to bare all.

Perga111Only 4 colour choices with this dress so again I stuck with the beige. Wearing the boots as well and again they go a long way to finishing off this outfit.  This dress isn’t in the Collabor88 sale it’s in their main shop but 149Lds is a decent price.

This shop is about 70% shoes, 20% clothes, 10% skins and a 100% excellence.  Loving the shoes as well and I’ve grabbed a number of demos to try on at my leisure and another cheeky skirt demo with the same flare as this dress.  Her clothes and shoes have that touch of something extra that make them stand out from crown (which you certainly will do if you don’t wear your undies!).

R2

Collabor88

Now walk outside of R2 and into the Love Soul shop which is packed with so many good things.  Nails, shoes, hair, accessories all with a touch of uniqueness.  You don’t find this stuff in every other shop.  I spent all my money here on hair.

Hair

Sadly for 170Ld you only get 1 shade and I want them ALL! You can buy a fatpack but thats a 1000Lds which may work out at a bargain price but I’m going to have to settle for this (just for the moment).

Hair 2Cute and short, a bit like my AV.

Perga 3

and finally this hair and then I had to leave because I just wanted all of the hairs on offer. Got to mention the shop owners name because she deserves it, 流依 Bluestarrui Villota.

Kicking myself because the one thing I do have plenty of from this shop is nails.  A great selection of colours and sizes so go on check out the claws. The check out the rest of the shops at this shopping centre.  Well laid out with good prices, good designs, good Gatchas and a few LBs.  So if your not shopping for anything in particular you will have a lovely time here.

PS as it happens I too popped to the Ribbon shop at this shopping centre and won almost the same top as Faith has just blogged but I got the “melty heart” one and it’s so cute.

Skin

Skin first.  Found this in my inbox and even before I’d unpacked it I knew I would be using this skin to show off the Hot Tub coming  up.  Dulces Secrets just makes great skins and great skins at great prices. This one is called Hollynn and it’s 55Lds a shade.Placed on the wall  just inside of the entrance area and demos available.  What else you will find is skins from as little as 35Lds (in the  Gatcha) and up to 350Lds, Group Gifts, make up, eyes and often a hunt or two is going on but just not at this moment.  I’ve never had a dud from this shop.  Demos available and I’ve tried them all and loved them all.  She’s made this one relatively make up free to allow you to add your own make up layer but those lashes are so thick and fluttery looking.  I took up the challenge and spent a very relaxing half hour trying on loads of my Mock Make up and it fits both lips and eyes  so that means even if you just treat yourself to the one shade of skin with make up you can make so many looks.Skin1

As usual lovely collar bone and belly button details and an impressive cleavage layer. Dulce Secrets always has Group Gifts, Gatchas and hunts going on and if you want to take a picture of your lovely new skin then check out the TP in front of the counter.  AnneAlyce Maertens who owns has placed a photo studio in the sky for all to use and OMG how generous has she been with the props and I should know as I own quite a few myself but there is more than the standard prop/pose room for everyone to use.  I highly reccomend setting your windlight setting to Nam Optimal skin1 . This is usually the settings I use when I’m inworld as it shows off skin to perfection.  Like Touche Eclat for SL.

Now stop looking at my skin and check out the hot tub I’m standing in. It comes from one of the leading, new and creative designers in SL  Apple Fall who has named his shop AF (Apple Fall).  We have probably mentioned him  a couple of times for items such as his amazing London sky home and soon I will be posting a picture of his lovely greenhouse .  He creates low primmed high quality mesh homes and furnishings and not badly priced as well which is always a bonus.  Special offer for the Zodiac shop, more about that at the end but this hot tub priced at 250 and only 5 prim!  I’m not a hot tub person but this one is going to be staying as it’s sizing, texturing and poses are so  good.  I can see that pretty soon all our rentals are going to be having one of these placed outside.

Hot Tub

I took this at a night setting so you can see how bright and atmospheric the water is. Packed with great poses and  1 set of couples.  Just the right size to sit you and friends comfortably or even just you on your own.

The Zodiac shop is a monthly sale of items which all have something in common with that months Zodiac sign and of course it is now the turn of the Aquarian.  So most things have a watery theme.  A selection of clothes, jewels, shoes, poses and of course the hot tub shown.  Some BIG will know shops here and a couple that I don’t recognise but if they’re the same quality as the rest as soon as I post this I’m off to check them out.

psssst: This is Faithless…please note – DONT ever go shopping with Zan, she makes you BUY things !

HA Faith has added this and I’m leaving it in. But I told you she will be placing one of these outside as many of our homes as she can because you can’t beat great.
