Pergola Days

ASU - PergolaDays cover
Happy August everyone!

The Hashtag District is kicking August off with the UP! SUMMER event.  You’ll have to get a wiggle on if these goodies appeal to you because UP! SUMMER ends on the 15th. Yes there are many “gifts” dotted around the event, however not all are free.  Not to worry, the gifts that are free make UP! SUMMER worth a visit.

This wonderfully naughty dress can be found right at UP! SUMMER’s landing point.  Simply join the free group, Inside your inventory, and click the two gift boxes on the ground.

The Erika dress by Enigma Apparel is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies, and comes with a HUD offering 10 dress fabrics, 6 string colors, and 8 bow choices.  The detailing on the denim is terrific.   Thanks Enigma for including an ombre denim, we love it!

NOTE:  Erika does not include a built in panty.  Iona is wearing Kaithleen’s Universal Thong which is a free group gift.

Our next Hashtag District find is this lovely set of classic silver hoop earrings from Modern Nostalgia.

This fabulous mop of hair can be found at Olive.  It’s one of many great Lucky Board items.  The letters change fairly fast, and when we check it is very rare to leave Olive without getting at least one great hair.

These luscious red lips are just one of 6 shades included in Livia’s Just Reds group gift.  We blogged this gift last month, click this link for a preview of all the boxed shades.  The gift is still available, and we did neglect to mention one very important tidbit – Just Reds includes appliers for mesh heads AND classic lipstick layers!

From the delicate facial moles down to our model’s toes Lake, from 7 Deadly Skins, is simply beautiful.  The Lake Skin Box included 6 skin tones each with blonde or black brows, and a cleavage or no cleavage version.  This skin was a recent Midnight Mania gift.  The Midnight Mania boards at 7 Deadly Skins are free for everyone to slap.  If you are skin lover then 7 Deadly Skins is well worth a visit.

Is the heat getting you down?

Though we can’t physically cool you down, we can offer a distraction.  Why not pop over to the Helping Haven Gateway for a round of Greedy Dice, a stroll along the beach, a romp through the forest, or you know –  do as Team All Spiffed Up does – raid their freebie cache!

ASU - HavenBack2
This colorful mini is just one of the fun finds.
ASU - HavenBeltdetail
Nice detailing and an included alpha for classic avatars.  Not a bad freebie, not bad at all!
ASU - HavenFaceFinal
Since we managed to hijack Lady Mystic along with her lovely lips for another post, we simply had to feature more lipstick from Livia. Just Reds is this month’s group gift at Livia. This lipstick set is simply awesome.  Thanks Livia for another great gift!
ASU - HavenshoeFinal

…and utterly delicious!

Today Team All Spiffed Up finally gets the opportunity to welcome the  ever gorgeous Lady Mystic into our model pool!  Freebies and Mystic don’t normally mix, but thanks to Blueberry’s fantastic new group gift, we caught her out.

The top-tied Mimi dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies and is packaged with the full fatpack HUD.  That’s 70 different looks with the option of a built in panty.

Blueberry always adds such wonderful touches to their garments. Look at that fold detailing!

Since our blogs are all about the freebies, we were able to talk Mystic into popping over to to Livia, joining their free group, and patiently modeling two of their wonderful gifts.

The Gianna lipstick gift is for mesh heads only with appliers for Lelutka, Vista, and Omega systems.

ASU - Bubble Beach Cherry RedLips
Apologies dear readers, we experienced a little darkroom mishap in the main Gianna picture accidentally doubling one of the shades and omitting the luscious cherry red hue above.

***YIKES – while working in the darkroom for the next blog entry (Summer Nights) it was obvious that the last lipstick in the composite picture did not belong to the Gianna lipstick pack.  That lovely tomato red is actually part of Livia’s Just Reds set. 
ASU - Bubble beach hand
Who doesn’t love a cruelty free cheetah print?  The Cheetah Girl mani/pedi applier set is yet another terrific gift at Livia.  Appliers included are for:  Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, and Omega systems.

It would be remiss not to mention the bento ring set that is quietly stealing the scene from our manicure.  Yes it was free, but “was” is the operative word.  Not long ago eBento celebrated its birthday with a phenomenal gift rich round.  So many designers giving gifts galore, OMG – note to self:  never miss an eBento anniversary roundMeva was in attendance, their gift (Heidi Bento Rings Gold set) was one of the round’s best.

Though the Heidi Set is no longer free it is still available at Meva for a modest sum.  So, for those of you who can’t live without making this set your own, here is your taxi: MEVA.

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.

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!

Makeup, how we love makeup!  Izzie’s has set out a Valentine’s gift for all visitors and it is spectacular.  The gift includes: 2 eyeshadows, 2 eyeshadows with eyeliner, 2 lip glosses, 3 cheek hearts with one being tintable.  Carla chose to subtly color her own cheek hearts so you have to be up close and personal to view the full effect.  The best thing about Izzie’s gift is that it comes with both appliers and  makeup layers so everyone whether they are classic or mesh can enjoy a makeover.
