Oh Finally !

I’ve been in Second Life for over a decade and one of the things that has always driven my crazy? Necklaces ! Yes I know , seems ridiculous.. but I have never, ever been able to get a good fit on them. Chokers yes – dead simple but necklaces – nope. They either stick out, wont lay flat, vanish into my shoulders,neck or chest. As for long ones – forget it ! Then, along came AvaWay – I was mooching in their store the other day and noticed that a few of the items were designed especially for the Maitreya body – intrigued I bought the one above. Voila! It fitted perfectly, no resizing, no rotating, tilting, dragging about – it fitted , right out of the box.

What is especially lovely is that some of the designs give you a choice of wearing all the strands, 1, 2 or all – so essentially you get several different looks in one piece.

After that initial purchase I did return and bought up almost ALL of the Maitreya rigged items. I even found a belly chain (heavens I’ve really struggled to fit those in the past!) There are also rings, bracelets and more ! Do make sure that you check the item you like is one of those that’s rigged for Maitreya, not all are.

This itty bitty little thing has cost me a fortune! (FREEBIES).

Woah I’ve just got back from the Redeux event which is celebrating it’s their second anniversary which means GIFTS for ALL….actually this event is one of the more generous gift giving events there is and this adorable soap set is one of the freebies.

I’ll let you into a RL secret, I used to be a soap maker and although I love what I do now I am missing the creativeness of soaping and this little set and those sticks of soap OMG! I swear part of me is staring at this picture and thinking “yes you can” the other part is remembering I now have sensitivity from working with EOs (Essential oils) and my sense of smell was being damaged by all the fragrance sniffing.

Anyhow, I’m using this simple gift just to let you know that there is not only a SH*T load of gifts but so many discounts and offers and of course the Gacha’s in the middle of this event and I’ve spent all my money! Now I have an internal debate as to whether I remain poor for the rest of the month or buy more Lds!

This event is over on the 21st.  Grab everything then plonk yourself somewhere where you won’t be bothered and slowly but surely unpack all the goodies, bin the ones you won’t use and stash away the keepers and I promise you by the end of it you will be totally chilled.  I am heading to my platform and doing just that and if I come across something which has as much wow factor, for me, as this soap set I might just tack it on to this post.

PS.  The soap is a gift from the “Insurrection” stall and you “wear” the unpacker and listen to what it says.

UPDATE. Oooo not disappointed at all, I’m having to log off SL and I’ve only unpacked about 8 boxes and found a fab top, a very interesting dress, bento lipstick ao, a rabbit outfit, cushions, jewellery inc facial one, some quality shelves and a pair of glasses which are as wearable as the pair I’ve just blogged.  I’m looking forward to when I have more free time to finish unpacking the rest.

Not till the 15th!

Oh my gosh ! I ❤ these sunglasses by Luminesse ! The new round of The Creative Spark begins on the 15th of this month – so you’re gonna have to wait to get your paws on them. The theme of this round is “Impractical” and these really really really are ! Ha – what brilliant thinking , love it. Soooo the details – well sun glasses of course, but oh no not your every day kinda ones, these are covered in SO many jewels – you will dazzle and shine everywhere you go. Lots of options via the menu for resizing, glow, shine etc etc – I had a good play with it all and decided to go with “no full bright” and a little teeny weeny bit of “glow” – your mileage may vary but set them up as you please. Oh ! The best news is – during this round of TCS they are 50% DISCOUNT!! That makes it just $50L per pair (two colour options to choose from) Walk to the very rear of the store and you will find them there.

Luminesse has some pretties out on special offer for you in this latest round of The Creative Spark ! On the right is the “Stiarra Chara Set” of necklace and earrings – sparkly and lush. I explored the menu properly (for once!) and found all sorts of options. Full bright on/off, glow on/off, shiny etc etc, so if you want a bit more BOOM with your jewels go for it ! This set is normally priced at $150L, for this round of TCS just $75L – steal. Now if you join the group (which I did) you get access to some incredible group ONLY offers. Seriously its worth it – and free to join, I’ve bought quite a few items, it’s a busy group with offers popping up left, right and centre ❤ Sooooo on the left is the "Consila Sunshine set" – knew I had to see it as soon as I read the notice, so girly and cute ! For group members it is just $50L for the set. I've turned everything off on my set – but if you want a bit more sparkle & shine – use the menu.

Wrong Shop.(40Lds of oodles of gifts ‘n’ gift card)

Shi, she of the great heads up, told me that at Swallow you not only get a whole load of gifts but also inc is a 250Ld Gift Card! and all of that for just the initial 40Lds joining fee so I hauled ass and as it happens I remember this shop and I remember blogging this dress and it’s still as good as when I first blogged it.  Lots of fits and a colour hud.

Out of all the jewellery gifts, this ring was the only one I picked up and I think you can see why and this was also the only pose I could find to show it off lol.

I’m not showing you much of the dress because I just want you to go and see for yourself whats on offer because there is a really nice mix of stuff…..and don’t forget the Gift Card so once you’ve grabbed the GG’s you can have a look around the shop and treat yourself to even more.

PS,  I’m feeling proud of myself that I haven’t made any double entendre about the shop name.

UPDATE.  Whispers the Gift Card isn’t limited to just 1 per person but don’t be (too) greedy and don’t tell anyone it was me who told you.

The Creative Spark – Autumn deals!

New round of TCS and Luminesse have these glorious pieces out on offer for just $62L. Two versions up for grabs, I have to say the one above is my fav – such pretty Autumnal tones in the stones.

Unaccustomed as I am to wearing this sort of item – I think I will try harder to incorporate pretties into my wardrobe, as these are just gorgeous. They do have a resize script built in , so unlike moi, you can adjust away for the perfect fit. The names are:

Luminesse Terezisa Verona Circlet

Luminesse Terezisa Maltia Circlet

I think I also spied a couple of anklets included in this round for just £25L !

A personal plea.(Freebies).

This adorable teacup and egg set are group gifts from a shop called Dahlia.

I’ve zoomed out to show you the other colours you get, plus a better perspective on the size.

Adorable so blinking adorable, believe it or not, I went into my own RL kitchen and dug out one of my oversized teacups and copied this.  Only 1 prim each as well and I do believe copy.

I already own a couple of decor items from this shop but damn it I’ve earmarked a few items for me to return to and purchase at a later date, so free is going to cost me but of course that’s what happens, the freebies/hunts bring people in in the hopes they splash some cash and in this case it has worked…when I treat myself to some more Lindens that is.

Anyhow, this is only one of the group gifts.  I picked this up and the mug of hot chocolate and apart from a couple of rather really good items of jewellery I can’t actually remember what else there was so go check them out for yourself.

While you’re there can you find the hunt prize for me?  I’ve been waiting for a hunt to come along and finally here is one called “The Frog Prince Hunt” and it looks like it’s going to be a good un.  The only thing is that even though hints are given I’ve failed at the first hurdle and couldn’t find the one in the Dahlia shop soooo be a sweetie and if you find it can you drop me a note cos if it’s as good a quality as the GG’s it’s worth hunting down.
