For One Night Only

As soon as I saw this incredible dress from Lemania, I fell in sloves! It's called Baby Love and is a tribute to.......yus, the amazing Ms Ross and the Supremes.



babylove

There's also an incredible July 4th gift in store called Fireworks. The hair.......well let me tell you about the hair. It's from an awesomesauce store I found called Cocoluv. The hair there is AMAZING! There is a dollarbie too, but I couldn't get it to fit my huge noggin! They have everything from braids, afro puffs, dreds to cornrows.....srsly check it out! The yummy bangles are from Ephemeral Creations, theyre not free, but there are July 4th bangles there for free so grab those, they'll not be there for long!

Next up is this yum mini kimono from Barerose. For some reason when I saw it, it made me think Foxy Cleopatra. Odd how my brain works XD!

Check out the braids with the colour change hat from Cocoluv........it just screams Beyonce! The wicked fantasy hair is from Haven Designs, who also have a dollarbie in store that I couldn't get to fit my head (I'm starting to get a complex!! Since when did a size 50 head become big??!)

Oh noes!

Ok, so when I went to Espana, I didn't expect that I would be on SL much, but I *did* expect that I would be able to log on. Not so! There must be a bandwidth restriction here, and I cannot fully log onto Phil's Place. Le gaspe! Le sigh.

So, I will be completely oblivious as to what is going on in SL and miss tons of freebies, but you are in good hands with these ladies & gent. ;)

If you are a designer and you happened to message me and I haven't responded, it is not because I am off pretending I am too fabulous, lol. And if you're a friend, I miss you already. :( If you are some uber haxxor and know what it means when I get all the way to "region handshake" and the connection process fizzles out, please leave a comment or e-mail me at adaire.decuir@gmail.com.

Much love to everyone & ciao para ahora.

xx, Adaire

Anyhoo, upshot is ........I PWN WINDOWS!!! To celebrate we went to see Kung Fu Panda......kyootest and funniest thing I've seen in a while.

Alive & Kicking

Well, it's Sunday again and that can only mean one thing... time for G to get off his @$$ and make a post. I know, you don't hear from me as often as most of my esteemed colleagues but rest assured I am out there scouring the grid for freebies to share with all my SL bros. So if you are, or know, a guy on a budget I am here (in the words of the exalted Busta Rhymes) to get you all in check!!


Now I am not one to hold a grudge but this plain gray T from Grudge Designs has me second thinking that stance. The shading is subtle but well done and no gaudy over sized logo makes this a great find for just... that's right.. dolla dolla bill ya'll! A trip to Sidewalk provided this kickass pair of frayed jeans that are part of a full outfit (shoes and shirt included) they offer up for free. Once again I can't get enough of Philotic Energy's "Faris" hair which you can snatch off the cheapie tree for just $1L. I am all about the accesories and when I ran across a unisex gift box from Made For You that had this brown leather armband I was more than happy to slide it on. On the other wrist I donned EnVenom's "Gummi Bare Licorice" braclets which I have blogged before ($1L).


While I was at Grudge Designs I picked up this "Eulogy" T for just $75L and that gives me enough reason to hop on my soapbox. We all love free items in SL but when you do have a few extra lindens to throw around don't forget to spend them with all the gracious designers that have been clothing you for next to nothing. [Steps off his soapbox] AB Apparel also has a $1L outfit for the bois and the jeans inside are simply stunning.


At this point I am sure you all have been spying my waist and saying "Why hasn't he mentioned the belt!?!" Good things come to those who wait my friends. This week Mechanism released their hunter's belt and a tank which Ashia rawked in a prior post. The belt is free but the tank is group gift and although I know Adaire would rather see me dead than wearing a tank top I suggest you join their group and give it a try. The shorts are also from Mechanism (is it becoming obvious I love this store? lol) and can be had for $180L. Those who know me well will not be surprised when I reveal that I am a total SHOE WHORE and when I heard Monogrind had a pair of combat boots as a group gift I nearly borked my index finger clicking my mouse to add them to my inventory.


I know... I am dragging this one out but there was just one more item I wanted to showcase and that is the first T-shirt that I can claim as "MINE". With a lil free time on my hands I have decided to start my own line which I have dubbed "Guerilla Gear". You can pick up my first creation for free at the Home of Freestyle or just shoot me an IM and I would be glad to send ya one.

With that being said I am gonna hit the sack and wish you all well... wherever you might be.

Mouthwatering

Who wants a quickie with me before I go bed?

I was walking around Takaraduka today (great shopping place) and I stumbled across this fantastic store called Ume Mode, check out this jewellery set and headband which was free (or 1L) in store. The punky hair worn here is Jule by Mirai Style (200L for 2 colours) and the mucho prettyness skin is Tuli Celeste [light/1] ~ dawn (freckled) whch was a previous group gift, but you can buy it in store.

UM

Twosome have released a funky retro style 1L top and it will only be at this price until 1pm SLT tomorrow, this one is in juicy orange and brown colours, there are more luffly colours in store at full price.

twosome

Rasetsukoku sent a notice to fashcon that immediately attracted my attention, I liked the sound of this store, so off I popped over there. A really great fitting pair of scorpion jeans and teeny gothic top here for free or 1L. Can I just say free, meaning free or 1L? I keep forgetting.

Rasetsukoku

Lastly but def not least is these versatile beach shoes which are a group gift from the :: Sixty-nine :: Group, they come in various sizes and can be worn by men and women. Looove dems!

You know I'm no good

Glastonbury Festival in the UK is one of the most famous music festivals in the world. I couldn't make it there this weekend, so I watched it on TV, (which is almost as good as you don't get covered in shit and mud and you can go to bed without the fear of someone pissing on you in the night).

Amy Winehouse somehow managed to perform at the festival, dispite being diagnosed with the early stages of Emphysema due to her high intake of serious hard drugs and fags. She punched a fan in the face and sang her heart out...good on her, she's a love or hate type of character, but I love her!

Well, when Francesca Balogh sent a notice to the Free*Style group about a store called Kazu, I TPd over and as soon as I saw this dress, I instantly thought 'Amy'. It's slinky and fitted, retro style with a thick red and black belt (this belt is a jacket layer so can be worn with other outfits). This is definitely a designer worth visiting, the clothes in the store are cool.

whine_005

I made this pose here based on this pic of Amy so you can have it, in fact, I'll make a set of Amy poses and put them out for 1L soon. The white strap on the shoulder is actually a bag also free or 1L in Kazu, my bad, I forgot to get a good pic of it but it is super-stylish.

whine_003

Check this out, it's almost the same dress, (she is absolutely trashed in this video, but that's Amy, being wasted has become part of her act)



And how about these for a pair of 'Fuck Me pumps'? These sooo high 'n' sooo sexy snakeskin shoes from are a group gift from SKG , they set this dress off perfectly doncha think?



Anyway, I'm off to rehab, see ya!

Feels so natural

As always on a Saturday, Surfine produce a new weekly free gift for you. This dress is so pretty with brown pink and white flowers, great for a summer day. I would wear this in RL, if it was warm enough and my legs weren't so hairy.

surfline_008

surfline_009

The dress works so well with this beautiful skin which is the new creation by Rosemary Galbraith of Rosemar and Mimi Coral of Cupcakes. It took me some major tweakage of windlight settings to show you this in it's true light, I wanted the cute spattering of freckles and the natural makeup to show through in the photo's, not easy with windlight but I think I managed in the end.

This particular skin tone (golden - rainbow) looks great with light coloured sunkissed hair, the style here I won on the lucky chair at TekuTeku (thankies to Mel of Grid Expections for the TP)

surfline_003

These are the other 6 tones available, freckled and unfreckled variaties, you will also recieve more skin tones if you join the Cupcakes group, I believe this is also 250L joining fee (like Rosemar), but again well worth it for the amount of great gifts Mimi gives away.

Mine, Mine, Mine!

Mine, all mine (cue echoing witchy like cackle)! Gloating much Ash? Why yes.......yes I am. The brand new Silent Sparrow lucky chair gift is all mine biatchipoos. It's green, it's fabulous and of course mine XD! Here's the rules kids, from the mouth of one of my fave designers on the grid:

"IMPORTANT RULES!!!please do NOT call letters in chat OR randomly im/tp people in the group. IM your friends *laughs* there are 2k people in here and some people don't like random teleport offers. even if it is for a neat suit :3
thanks!

Goes fantastically with this unbelievable hair Creams blogged just below. Still can't get over the fact it's only a linden, everything about the hair is so lovingly done, as with the suit! Perfect partners in every way! Stay tuned for frolics in the forest with me and Artie (my version of tiptoeing through the tulips XD!)

The sweet side of goth

This week I've had a penchent for mixing pretty girly dresses with gothy skins, I'm channelling Luella's gothic revival -(Fall 2008 dahhhlings). I love this look, it's a great way to release your inner goth.

This beautiful cherry dress is from a new store called Bingo (there is also a couple of other free items in store now YAY!). The unsual skin is a free gift from The Obscene (limited time freebie - hurry it might be gone soon).

23-6_001

Awwww, look at my little bear, this is the Grim Babies freebie which Ashia featured in her post. The hair is the free Aimee style at Maitreya and the cute pierced kitty ears are from Katat0nik at Axis Mundi 130L (includes 2 tails, pierced and unpierced ears -all twitchy animated)

23-6_002
These eyes are by Aralute, she makes stunning, unusual eyes and they really work well with this skin, you can get these at Aralute's for only 20L.

This hair is also free at The Obscene , the beautiful dress you can just see below is a prize on the Crimson Shadow lucky chair, you can see this is full on Adaire's post.

23-6_007

While I was working on this post, Elemiah Designs sent a note through about a new free dress in store, I rushed right on over there because I love Elemiah's clothes, and WOW check out this glorious creation, the Bonheur Pink Gown. This is available for 1 week.

goth_005

My chummy Azia Lunasea IMd me yesterday about a good friend of hers, Tekelili Tantalus, who has an amazing store called Tekali-Li packed full of beautiful fantasy hair in many unique designs. This intricately detailed style is a little taster of what is on offer, it's only 1L and there is also 2 free tattoo's and earrings. The striking skin worn here is the Goth - Extreme Black/Green Makeup from Frick, 1L

goth2

Achariya called to me today about this wonderous tree hair, which a new freebie from Curious Kitties, I thought "it's fabulous but what the heck am I going to wear with it?"

THE HAIR
ganguro2

But then, as if by magic, I receive these beautiful dresses from Katat0nik at Axis Mundi. It's like this hair was made for them, and this Ganguro skin 1L from Frick, sets it all off perfectly!

THE DRESSES (in 6 colour combinations)
kat

kat1

The texture used in these skirts is one of Katat0nik's beautiful paintings, how amazing is that to be able to translate your own painting onto an avatar's clothing!

kat2

Also free in the Katat0nik at Axis Mundi store are these cute and chunky legwarmer boots and skirts (the skirts I think we have previously blogged, but they go perfect with these boots - so here they are again). These boots come in so many different colours.

kat3

Oh one more thing, I had to show you this eyecover also free from Curious Kitties, I found the perfect hair for it in my inventory, the dreads from Booperfunk at Savoir Hair (free or 1L, I really hope it is still there). The bracelets and skirt are also free at Curious Kitties.

Woops sorry, bewbies (at least you can't see my eyes)

The Illustrated Woman

One of the neatest things that G and I have been doing recently is kicking back on the couch and renting movies within SL. It's like "date night" when we can't physically go out on a date. We recently rented "Blades of Glory" that has Will Ferrell in it, an actor who never fails to get me to laugh. He plays this...erm...intense machismo oddball ice skater named Chazz Michael Michaels, and there's this scene where he's showing off these goofy tattoos and he says, "Some people call me the Illustrated Man." You can't help but be inspired by Will Ferrell.

Yep, I've finally done it. I had to show a little ass, but these delicious booty shorts from Vitamin Ci plus these bootifulz (thanks Flippa Stella for more lolcat-ese!) Cherry Bomb tats made me do it! The power of freebies compelled me! The Vitamin Ci outfit is available for $5L, which is a little higher than I normally show freebie-wise, but it was just too darn kyoot not too. It's also worth noting that there is a 50% off sale going on too. I finally got this "Gaby" dress I've been stalking that is mucho cute. The Chinese Fire Dragon tattoo is free at Cherry Bomb's SL5B exhibit.
This Cherry Bomb Leopard tattoo is also free. Be sure to check out Callie Cline's exhibit across the street. It's extremely creative and there are neat little giveaways. Be sure to grab a dream stick and wear it! [cackles]
Here's the outfit from the front. It was a challenge for me to rock the Sporty Spice-esque chic, but Philotic Energy's Phoebie hair ($199L) helped get me there along with my trusty PornStar Xtra Hi-Tops from Urban Bomb Unit ($595L). It's hard to see, but I have a little septum ring thing going on, yet another freebie at Cherry Bomb's exhibit.
Another exhibit worth checking out is iZa boutique's setup at SL5B. I picked up this free "Green Frost" skin along with six other freebies there. Woot! And another sale worth checking out is Dutch Touch's 50% store card sale located at the separates store. The Dutch Touch top was sent out free today through the subscribe-o-matic, and I picked up the "Iris" outfit for half price with a gift card which includes the skirt and socks you see here. The boots and necklace are from SiniStyle (not free).
And now for something completely different than sporty spiciness and whatnot is the June group gift from Kouse's Sanctum. This gorgeous red dress has a beautifully laced up back and a red bow that is just right with the gloriously poofy skirt. Be sure to grab it before it disappears out of the group's messages! The earrings were free in a past hunt at Kouse's Sanctum and are no longer available for free, but this group is worth staying in forevah, because Kouse is often generous with freebies and hunts. I'm also wearing an EarthStones group gift "Nature's Beauty" ring. The ETD "Hermia" hair is available for $175L.

Ok, I'm done procrastinating. This time. Must...not...overpack...but...need clothes...but...too heavy...but... MEEP!
