Hitting the Mats

ASU - 2-18-19

OUTFIT |LRS .Sonnia Sporty Outfit – w/40 choice color HUD for mesh & classic avatars (GG/free)
| SHOES |SL Marketplace .Serendipity by Jen.female flipflops – black w/blue flowers Slink/Maitreya/Belleza (free)

After working my way through all those wonderful Valentine’s Day chocolates, it’s time to hit the mats.  Here’s a comfy little outfit that’s roomy enough to allow for a generous range of motion during those post holiday workouts.

The Sonnia Outfit is one of many group gifts currently available at LRS.  One the more notable features of this outfit is the 40 color/texture HUD.  There are 20 colors for the top, and 20 textured fabrics for the shorts.  Add them together and you’ve got a whole potential looks in just one set of clothing.

Until next time, shop happy!

Sweet, Sweet, Justice

Yesterday I featured gift 9 from Justices’s mini Valentine’s Day hunt.  There are however 11 other gifts in the hunt that mesh body wearers won’t want to miss out on.  If you wear a Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza body this is a hunt well worth doing.  The hunt gifts are free, not overly difficult to find, and so very red!

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the gift preview.

| SHOES|SL Marketplace .Living Vintage Couture.Christmas Slippers – mesh w/resizer (free)

Lots of fun gifts are waiting for you at the Gacha Garden. Join their free group, and prepare to open all sorts of varied gifts.  This cute pajama set can be found at the Sorumin booth.  The set is only sized to fit Maitreya bodies.  That doesn’t mean others can’t enjoy the set too as long as their body comes with an alpha system.  The t-shirt and shorts are a basic style that can easily work with standard t-shirt/shorts alphas in a classic avatar’s inventory.

Hang out at Olive Hair to get this cute style from their lucky boards.  No group join required.

Finish off the look with these cozy slippers from the marketplace.  The are sized for Slink flat feet, but are modifiable for easy resizing in edit mode so that everyone can enjoy them.

Until next time, shop happy.

HAIR |Sintiklia .Sheba slicked back – w/color + hat HUD (free)
JACKET |Shop & Hop Event .Blueberry.250L credit – Minnie coat in pixie w/t-shirt HUD (199L/free w/credit)
HAT |Beautiful Dirty Rich .Holidays Little Diva – color + tint HUD (GG/free)
PANTS |SL Marketplace .Delizio.classic jeans – classic jeans w/appliers for mesh (free)
SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)

Only 2 days left to Shop & Hop!  This gift rich winter shopping event only runs through January 4th, so it’s time to get your shop on.

Our classic model, Gabby, decided pop over to Blueberry and redeem her event store credit.  She chose the Minnie coat (shade pixie).  Minnie is sized for mesh bodies only, so there is no alpha for classic avatars in the box.  Of course, that does not mean classic avatars can’t wear this.  It simply means you have to be a bit creative by borrowing alphas you already have in your inventory.

Or, you can do what Gabby did, and simply wear one of the included meshes for a curvier body type such as Venus or Hourglass.  Going curvy will usually solve most fit problems.  Plus, you have the added joy of going voluptuous without having to purchase the body.  **WARNING – wearing  curvy mesh clothing on a classic avatar is a virtual Wonder Spanx – the effect ends when the coat comes off (wink, wink).** 

ASU - Shop&Hop3back

Today’s hair is one of several free (no group join required) gifts at Sintiklia.  The way the hair flows seamlessly over the mesh hooded jacked is simply great.  The Sheba hair is designed to be a hat hair, and comes with the option of making the included hat invisible so that you can wear any hat of your choosing.

Gabby decided to wear the hat from B.D.R.’s Little Diva outfit originally modeled here.  Little Diva’s HUD includes a tint picker for creating infinite color choices.  Gabby had no problem tinting the hat to match the shade of her coat.

I wanted to have our model pair this outfit with a nice pair of UGG styled winter boots.  Unfortunately, none of our team was able to track down a current freebie.  Cabal, yesterday’s model, overheard our dilemma and proceeded to bust up laughing.  He just kept looking down at his boots and roaring.  And, that’s when the light bulb exploded.  Ladies, the Kenji boots may be in the men’s section of The Free Dove, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear them too!  Shop happy peeps!

Happy 2019!

SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)

Happy New Year everyone!  Guys, this post is for you.  You can recreate today’s look for yourself in just two teleports.

First, you’ll want to visit one of the grid’s newest freebie centers:  “F” Store Freebie Junkies.  Though the the store does have some female clothing, most of its inventory is for male avatars.  There are enough goodies to keep you busy for a fair few minutes.

Both the upper body coat outfit and the jeans include alpha layers for classic avatar use.  These mesh outfits are not sized for specific name brand bodies.  However as long as you have a good alpha system included with your mesh body, wearing them is a snap.  Don’t panic when the skin showing through the ripped jeans does not match your skin tone.  Simply put on the included jean HUD and choose a pre-loaded tone.  If needed, you can then add hues by using the tint picker.

Next, simply pop over to The Free Dove.  If you’re not a member, join the store’s free group.  Then walk over to the men’s section for the Kenji Boots by La Bella Boutique (LBB). These boots can be worn by both mesh and classic avatars, and come with a resize menu system plus a color change HUD.

Until next time, happy shopping!

So many of those awesome Christmas gifts that have been hanging around the grid will vanish as the New Year descends upon us.   With partying to do in both worlds, I kind of wish I’d gotten a functional Tardis under my Christmas tree.

If you have not visited Swank yet, drop everything and teleport over.  Today is the last day of Swank’s Winter Festival, and there are a ton of great gifts to collect that don’t require a group join.

The Peace On Earth Hunt also ends today.  I know hunting at the last minute can be a pain, but these hints are helpful making the gifts not overly difficult to find.  Click the following link – POE Hints. Preview the gifts here:  POE prizes.

SHOE |SL Marketplace .Duh!.engineer boots – wearable demo Tan (free)


** This body was completely free earlier this year during the WOH hunt.  It is now free for members of the Altamura group.  For the 2018 holiday season Altamura has reduced their group join fee to 25 Lindens.**

MAKEUP |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle lipstick – 4 colors (GG/25L temporary group join fee)


I have three little words to inspire you to get over to the Shop & Hop Event before it ends:  Blueberry store credit!  That’s 250 Lindens worth of a store credit to be exact.  It’s the perfect amount to add an item in your favorite Blueberry color to your wardrobe.

This is Blueberry’s Laura outfit that comes boxed as two separates.  Separates are especially nice to have when dressing non Belleza/Maitreya/&Slink bodies.  Today’s model is wearing Emanuelle, a past WOH gift body from Altamura.  While dressing she found the dress sized for Maitreya fit the lower body best.  However, the cropped sweater sized for Slink fit her chest and shoulders best.  So, don’t be afraid to mix and match mesh clothing to get the best look on bodies not supported by your favorite designers.

Zip over to NYNE to pickup this fun winter hairdo.  Simply join their free group to get the Cicil hair.  It comes with a nice color picker HUD, allowing for virtually unlimited colors.  Also, if you wander to the back of the store you’ll find several shelves of past gifts.

Finish off this look with a wearable demo from Duh! found in the marketplace.  The boots can be resized, and positioned to achieve a perfect fit.  Happy shopping everyone!
