Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow?  I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.

Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.

ASU - Astronomy101back

Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend.  Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners.  Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free

Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress.  Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique.  If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine.  Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.

Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow!  It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store.  The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems.  Best of all, it’s free!

Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS) Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift.  Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.

After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.

Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair.  This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.

These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S.  They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces.  You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.

This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU.  It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact.  The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift.  She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered.  Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.

Happy Tuesday!

After a wild week of crazy hunting and seemingly endless unpacking we’ve put together a little something special for you that requires a minimum of fuss to assemble.  In 2 teleports you’ll have a new outfit.  Add a 3rd teleport for a new hairdo.  The 4th and final teleport will give mesh body & head wearers a new skin.

Hilly Haalan put out 2 new group gifts yesterday.  They are lovely, for both mesh and classic avatars, and FREE.  Simply join Hilly Haalan’s free group and this beautifully textured top/skirt combo is yours.  The set includes a HUD with 10 distinct looks.  They are so nice we felt compelled to show them all.  Thanks Hilly Haalen, you made our day!

ASU - SS boot side

Next stop, Moda.  The Denise special edition boots are a true freebie, no group join required.  They are sized for mesh bodies, and include a color change HUD with 3 denim shades, and floral, leopard, and zebra options.

Head over to Olive for this chic variation of the classic ponytail.  The Lizzie hair in brunettes is currently one of Olive’s Lucky Board gifts.  This hair is just too fun.  Using the HUD’s streak option allows for the two-toned styling pictured above.  Stick to the main color selection for an even overall color if you prefer a more conservative look.

Olive’s Lucky Boards are free for any visitor to use, change often, and are loaded with fun styles that are often accompanied with whimsical options.  While you’re there don’t forget to slap that Midnight Mania!

Mesh body and skin wearers that missed 7 Deadly s[K]ins‘ (7DS) Yoga skin gift at the May eBento round have another chance to get it in the caramel tone.  It will take a little searching at the 7DS sim and finding the sunflower, but it’s well worth the effort.  The Sunflower Hunt runs through August 25th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find this beautiful skin.

Iona’s Style Card:

HAIR – Olive Lizzie Hair – Brunettes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)

SKIN – 7 Deadly s[K]ins Yoga Skin – in caramel/mesh appliers only (Sunflower Hunt/0L)

Several broken nails and countless paper cuts later we’re happy to announce we’ve finally opened all of our Women Only Hunt (WOH) gifts.   The WOH runs through August 18th, so you’ve still got time to collect the goodies.

All items in today’s post except for the flip flops are WOH gifts.

ASU - R&R F&B

The dollfactory’s hunt gift is the Anne shape.  The shape was designed for Slink’s Hourglass body and Catwa’s Lona head.  If your like our model (Dutch) and don’t own either of those items you can still give the shape a try since it is copy/mod.  Dutch was able to use the body portion of the shape “as is”, but did have to make mods to the head/face numbers to get a look that worked for her mesh head. 

Though the halter top and the front tied shirt are two separate gifts from different stores, you’d swear they were made as a set.  They layer together seamlessly.

7 Deadly Skins gifted the Bali skin in chestnut.  The skin is Omega compatible and comes with a no-brow option!

The black flip flops are  a nice little marketplace freebie.  They come in 4 colors, and though they are packaged for mesh feet they can be worn by classic avatars.

The Mary shorts from Have Unequal have a nice embroidery color change HUD.
