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.

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.

Sci-Fi Noir

ASU - BRcover2
Fans of futuristic urban noir films are going to love the Hangars Liquides sims.  The environment completely immerses the senses, tempting even non-role play enthusiasts to dabble a bit.  Fortunately, we managed to hold it together long enough to snap a few pics for today’s post.

Recreating this look will take 6 teleports, 5 free group joins, and one quick marketplace grab.  Let’s get this party started!

The simple yet stylish gradient sweatshirt is a group gift from Revelation.  It comes with 11 color options sized for mesh bodies only.  However, since it’s a sweatshirt it would be easy enough for classic avatars to scare up a suitable alpha from their inventory.

Mission awesome skirt requires a visit to Cremosas Store.  It is boxed for mesh bodies only and supports: Altamura, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Maitreya, and TMP.

If you’re looking for a bit of protection from sooty city rain this marketplace find will do the job nicely.

Lovesong is another great hairstyle available for members of Lamb’s group.  Did we mention Lamb’s group is free to join?

The Fondness bracelet from Osmia is just one of many free gifts to be found at Epiphany’s birthday round.
ASU - BRmanipedi
Need a fresh manicure?  Livia is the shop for you!  Whether you’re looking for classic subtlety or bling, it’s all here.  These are only 2 of the 6 options to choose from in the Calla group giftCalla includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Vista, and Omega.
ASU - BRthong
Now, before you ask why we have gratuitous sexy pics thrown in let us point out that our model is wearing this fabulous thong under her skirt.  The thong fits like a glove, and it easily fit under all the bottoms our model was thinking about blogging which could be why Kaithleen’s has called this the Universal Thong. It’s sized for most mesh bodies, including ebody curvy, comes with a 15 color HUD plus two metals.
ASU - BRshoes
C&S is today’s final stop.  The Joy Sandals fit Maitreya and Slink, have 40 color options plus the ability to change the laces independently.  Thanks C&S for this lovely summer gift!
