I whipped over to Lok’s a couple of days ago to snatch up the gift for the Cookie Jar Anniversary Hunt…its a “storage dresser”, and boy-oh-boy do I need one of those ! Its dead nifty, comprehensive instructions are in the box so you wont get confuddled at all, I SO need to sit down and store away the trillions of bits of furniture I still have from the rental homes . Each drawer can be named (its hover text, so you can’t see my labels in the photo). Eight drawers to fill up with gear, all those things you wanttttt and neeed but really don’t need everyday that clutter up your inventory. When you land at Lok’s there is info on all the hunts currently running. Oh! Almost forgot, my frock is a free gift from DandelionWine, join the subscribo and voila its yours. Such a pretty little thing it is too…frothy,lacy and girly ! Definately a store to keep an eye on, heaps of new releases and the quality is greaaaaat!
I didn’t need it, I shouldn’t have bought it, I don’t have anywhere to put it and yet….I couldn’t resist it!
Over the years I have lived in many homes but all have been along the lines of retro, old, shabby chic etc and over the years I have amassed a lot of old Victoriana style items including ovens but when I saw this full sized great detailed old Victorian Range from Storax Tree and I just had to have it. It’s 24 prims, comes without the accessories. 200Lds and worth both the prims and the price. This is a great room filler. For those of you into RPing this is amazing and for those who aren’t but love the old style a great look can be created.
Quickly digs out my sexy lola tango maids outfit so I can pose next to it just so you can see the size of the range which is the exact size an old range would be. Even if your not into the look still check out StoraxTree which I know well because it usually has a hunt or in this case 2 hunts going on and best of all check out the range because sitting on it is the Menu Mania Heaven Hud (MMHH letters) for 5Lds you get a cool AFK prop pose but splash out a bit more and the 49Lds for the Birds and the Bee’s hunt (a big bird) and you get an amazing over sized shoe for you to pose on.
And then I spotted the “clippie mats” which made me squeal. I come from the North East of the UK and we call them clippie mats but most people call them rag rugs. The texturing is so realistic of fabric strips woven into bright garden patternsand only 50Lds.
The Sexy Maid outfit comes from Gathering which is a shop for the bustiest of the busty. It has a range of clothing not just for Lolas but all the boobs out there. Yes it has the tarty and trashy but also the elegant and unusual. Costumes such as the maids one or full lenth ball gowns.
Some new items have appeared for the Lavender Hill Hunt in the last couple of days…so I nabbed them to show you… Alouette have this darling little two-seater bench out “The Camilla bench”. Dual shades of lavender and sweet poses…FashioNatic, which is new to me, are giving away this off the shoulder jersey…love this style and adore the delicate shade…*ionic* have this funky set of prints out as their offering…really fresh and zesty…will certainly spruce up your home !
I’ve seen so many stores lately re-releasing pieces to catch onto the Lola breast fever…I like the Lola breasts…but…the jury is still out on the bringing back of the *crotch-flap” for dresses and skirts. I had this denim mini dress way back when it was new at Poison…I still like it..its a good piece….now its re-released with the Lola Tango applier, for the devotee’s. (Im showing it without the Lolas in this photo btw) Id love a re-colour or a different pattern in this ! My necklace is in the Lavender Hill Hunt..from NuDoLu, such a sweet wee thing and at just 5L a great buy.
Another Poison Lola release is this “Vipera berus dress”, there’s actually two versions one brown and one silver….again classic mini styling with added Lola action. I did have trouble matching my boobs to the shoulder straps. I puffed the Lolas innnnnn and then outttttt…sideways…up…down…and I still wasnt totally happy with the end result. I think,after chatting to Zan, its more a problem with the Lola’s than the dress, she has a bikini that she can’t line up breasts & seams with…perhaps Im just useless though ! Looks like Poison is going to push out a LOT of gear with the Lola appliers, so head on down and take a peek. Thanks Corocota ❤
Lavender is such a delicate colour and one of my fav’s for spring…The Lavender Hill Hunt has begun and if , like moi, you love all things lilac…this is a fabulous hunt for you. The hunt runs from 25-Feb to 10-Mar and features gifts from a diverse range of stores: from fashion to decor, from accessories to poses, there’s something for everyone. There is a microscopic charge of 5L per gift…SO worth it ! Above I’m wearing the glorious maxi dress being offered by Intrepid…such a classic shape & style…demure and feminine….the chair is from Breno…its made me laugh ! A really great selection of poses for both male & female…sooper cute..
Next up is another stunning gift, this time from Immerse. The cami dress is sweetly sassy…with a flared hemline and deep puff gathered sleeves. I teamed it up with the gift from SIGMA Jewels , which is a beautifully crafted necklace on a fine silver chain…plus one of the three hunt gift makeup products from Adore & Abore, a rich dark lilac eye shadow…
I also picked out this lounge set to share with you from the vast array of goodies you can grab…funky huh?! Its made by a new-to-me store called “Akeana’a Architecture”. The item comes in a rez box…which makes it easy peasy to get it all in the exact location…the chaise has quite a few poses to choose from…its verrrrry different from what Id usually go for…but the tones of lavender and purples work so well I loved it.
More decor, this time from an old favourite of mine [CIRCA], always such attention to detail, and this is no different. Dont miss out on this gorgeous pouffe…not only a truly stunning texture and colour but its got soooo many delectable poses ! The shadow box table is interesting…look inside to see all the tiny trees and grass…you actually get two versions of this…the short one as above and a taller one.
even.flow yay! They are offering as their gift a handy-dandy blouse that will certainly jazz up your existing wardrobe pieces…worn over crisp white trousers for spring…zesty ! Beautifully shaped sleeves and a wrap belt…I adore.
Last up for today…is this fun chunky sweater from Leri Miles Designs…you get two colour versions in the box which is pretty cool…both with a sort of shabby vintage feel to them…complete with missed knitted stitches that lends it a realism I love ! Zan has some more to show from this hunt so get your huntin goggles on and start searching out the goodies !
Lavender Hill Hunt blog (all info &LM’s here)
We all know the big hunts going on but there are many smaller ones with some seriously lovely yummies on offer. This is the Censor Kawaii Hunt and each item, you’re looking for a cupcake, costs you only 20Lds which is so cheap but if your very low on funds this hunt offers you a picture of what exactly is on offer so you can pick and chose. And I chose this pink dress. It’s mesh, it’s cute and it’s pink and what more can be said.
Looks like the picture has been cut in half but that’s just one of the strings from a balloon in my lovely balloon room. This is 2 hunt items, first the mesh shorts. A mix of denim and floral fabric makes this more than your standard pair of mesh shorts. You get 2 floral pattern choices and both are sweet. The Lola Tango top is a separate hunt prize and again only 20Lds for each item.
Sadly not hunt items but I couldn’t resist because how cute is this little underwear set (170Lds) and then there is the hair (150)which comes with the hair dryer and poses sooo cute sooo cute Faith had to run off and buy the hair. Now look at the skin because this is a Group Gift from Censor so join the group and grab a skin so you could get yourself a new skin, shoes, and outfit from as little as 40Lds. As soon as I go back to get the LM I will be trying on their skin demos because they’re not sticking to the standard, from what I saw they have skin with cute red noses, gawky teeth, smiles and pink cheeks skin that has just that little touch of individuality.
I was just about to TP to a shop that I know sells skins which are designed to be worn with Lola Tangoes because I have heard that people are worried that they won’t be able to get a skin match so I decided I’d buy a skin and see if those few people who cannot for some reason match their skin can buy one. Fortunately before I went shopping I decided to clean out some of my invent and see if there was any goodies and I came across a box from Hot Stuff and tucked inside was some WOO HOO Lola Tango SKINS! I wasn’t too excited at first because they come in such small boxes with even smaller pictures on the front so you couldn’t really see how good they are and they are good.
A couple of surprises is that you put on your lola boobs and put on the skin and in the skin package comes an Applier which applies the matching boob skin colour. So I had a horrid thought that if you need to apply the skin with an applier then you won’t be able to apply a clothing layer over the top and that’s not the case at all. Your skin applier colours the boobs and whatever you chose to wear on top you use the applier given with that outfit and it simply layers it over the breast skin. EASY. As an added bonus this free’s up your tattoo layer so you can use that for something else.
This is Regina coral skin and the darker skin is the Regina Nutmeg. Now I have taken a really good naked shot so you could have a better view of the skin match and nipple colouring and then I remembered the 1 nip rule which basically means I can’t really show that picture but if you look at my Flickr then it will be there. So this is the prudish shot and the rudish shot is……..HERE
Because there is no demos of this skin I just snapped this close up of the Reginal Coral skin at a normal SL miday light setting (face light on though I never ever not wear a FC). 250Lds and you get 3 choices of make ups and cleavage options and at that price a bargain. Speaking of which quite a few hunts going on and lots of Group Gifts and old hunt items going for cheap on the table. So make sure you check them out.
