You’ll also find two handbags, and a set of 11 pictures in the gift boxes next to the Camille Set.
I added Gos Boutique’s Rihanna Perforated boots to round out today’s ensemble. These boots are simply awesome. As are all of Gos Boutique’s past gifts currently available in the store.
Ah, look at that sweet smattering of freckles. If the skin’s artistry looks familiar it’s probably because our main model, Iona, only wears skins from this designer. 7 Deadly s[K]ins creates gorgeous products, and is incredibly generous. There are currently 7 “camp 4 skins” chairs, 2 daily Midnight Mania boards, 1 mini-Mania, and 1 lucky letter board available for all store visitors.
Today’s lipstick is one of the glossy shades found in LOGO’s current group gift. The gift is packed with 2 HUDS (one for matte finishes, and one for glossy) featuring 20 fabulous shades.
To complete this look, teleport over to NYNE to pickup their new group gift. Kim #36 hair comes in two rigged hair sizes with a color HUD that includes streak options. NYNE is a very talented and generous designer. The store offers a free, and a VIP (fee to join) group. There are lots of past group gifts available for group members. This store is a must visit for all hair lovers!
Until next time, shop happy.

With so many wonderful free events going on across the grid it’s easy to miss out on a load of excellent goodies. I’ve been so focused on checking out advent calendars I almost missed a giant winter shopping event organized by the Lindens.
The Shop & Hop Event has 100 stores spread out over 5 sims:
And, as you may have guessed, each store has set out one completely free (no group join required) gift. Shop & Hop runs through January 4, 2019. So, gather your shopping bags together and shop happy!
Here’s a closeup of a few of the Shop & Hop jewelry gifts and the gift from Vanity Hair.
Though it will cost you 25 Lindens to join the group, this is Altamura’s Leila (12 Days of Chrismas) group gift. She is quite lovely as is (pictured above), however she’s also Omega compatible. A quick visit to Omega Solutions to purchase the Omega Applier HUD for 99 Lindens will leave you with lovely bento rigged mesh head that only cost 124 Lindens total.
Leila, does not come with a HUD controller, but it’s not necessary. Altamura supplies an easy to follow notecard with links for free eyes and free applier clearing HUDs that make changing skins a snap.
Above is a picture of Leila wearing applier skins from 7 Deadly Skins. I was a bit skeptical when I realized Leila didn’t come with a HUD interface of her own. But, after working with her for literally no more than 10 minutes, I realized a HUD simply isn’t necessary. And, in some ways it’s a lot easier adding your makeup without using a cumbersome HUD.
Let’s finish off with a closeup of Momento’s Shop & Hop shoe gift. Happy Christmas Eve everyone. Enjoy!

This show stopping gown is one of many group gifts to be found at Patula’s House. The Diana gown is sized for both classic and mesh avatars. Patula’s House spreads its group gifts over several levels.
The two newest group gifts are located near the entrance on the ground floor. Continue up to the second floor to access their wall of group gifts. The walk is most definitely worth it!
Visit the Access Event to pickup this wonderful set of 10 lipsticks made by Lisa Walker. The Cream Collection includes appliers for Catwa & Lelutka heads.
The last stop is 7 Deadly Skins. Even though the 7DS group has a join fee, the store does have several free offerings for all visitors. One of the most notable free gift areas is right behind the main desk. There are 6 different free gifts for members of several free shopping groups. The sand tone skin featured on our model is one of 6 skin tones in the free gift for members of the [fashionable] group. This is a lovely gift, thanks 7DS!
Don’t let today’s title fool you, we’re still on the hunt! Namely, SL F&O’s 1st Annual Hunt. These gifts are simply awesome, and with nearly 100 stores participating we’ve got a lot of hunt items to share.
Today’s show stopper hunt item is the lovely Paulina gown from A&J Creations. Best of all, Paulina is sized for classic and mesh bodied avatars. Inside the box you’ll find an alpha for classic avatars, 5 standard mesh models, 5 fitmesh models, plus models for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.
If you wear an Omega compatible head and body then 7 Deadly Skins’ SL F&O gift is for you. Noira is pleasingly tanned with just the right amount of beauty marks.
Chop Zuey’s contribution to the SL F&O hunt is this delicate leafy jewelry set. It comes with a HUD that changes the metal and gems.

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.
Be sure to drop by the DBS booth at UP! SUMMER to pick up these fun little flats. They’re mesh, resizable, come in black and red, and are free.
