    Moist Brilliant Earth


    “After the rains departed the skies and settled on earth - 
    clear skies; moist brilliant earth - 
    greater clarity returned to life alone with the blue above 
    and made the world below rejoice with the freshness of the recent rain. 
    It left heaven in our souls and a freshness in our hearts.”

    ― Fernando Pessoa

    REDEUX Event Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a limited time event to tell you about, as I just received a notecard today so I only just found out about the Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2020 by REDEUX. There are 4 buildings surrounding the landing area, all of which hold displays by various designers offering lots of discounted merchandise from clothing to accessories to home decor and more. There are also group gifts in cardboard boxes at just about every display, just give each one a click with the free group tag (local chat will have an invitation to join when you land) to receive something special. I am sorry for the short notice and truly hope you can visit quickly to enjoy this sale!


    My first look this evening is the charming Fire Within gift called *FW* Willow, one of two gifts inside the same cardboard box at their display. The other is for the gentlemen, so please pass that information along to anyone who may be interested :) Willow here consists of a blouse with flared elbow length sleeves barely held closed by long ties, and a clever skirt that appears to be jeans converted into a skirt by adding a long scarf or shawl, with each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. 


    The treat from Only Your Imagination could be Christmas themed because of its colors, but can certainly be enjoyed any time of year if you wish. Their OYI - Holly Jolly dresses come in red and green versions, each v1 and V2 for long or short sleeves, and all of those options are provided in Legacy and Maitreya sizing. That plunging neckline is the perfect frame for my new tattoo, the group gift from Slide Store Tattoo called ::SsT:: Line Breast Tattoo - BoM. the cleavage-skimming artwork comes in a single system layer, compatible with classic avatars or BOM (Bakes on Mesh) for mesh bodies. You have probably noticed by now that I am a fan of BOM and find it very useful for quickly adding multiple makeup or tattoos or clothing layers while being able to see from the "Worn" tab of my inventory exactly what I am wearing. 


    [WitchCraft] is brightening my day with their Ari Dress group gift, thanks to its fun sailor style with flirty touches. The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 6 color HUD so you can change your look whenever you wish. The top has a bare back beneath the halter neck's collar, and I love how the front bow is mirrored in the back where it ties together. The pleated skirt has a crisp white stripe that appears on all 6 color choices, with a cute pair of buttons on the left side of the waistband. 


    Holiday seasons can be busy and tiring, so we deserve a little something extra pretty to relax in too :) This is the Fatal Fashion gift called FF Original - Top & Shorts Light Blue, and it has a simple elegance to go with that soothing color. The top and shorts each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The top is cropped daringly to reveal just a flash of under-boob, and the high waisted shorts are cut quite high on the thigh which make them even more flirtatious. 


    My final look of the evening has two group gifts for you to see, adorable tops that both go really well with my Delizio jeans which are free on the marketplace. The top on the left is the LYBRA. Cozy Sweatshirt, which is fitted for the Maitreya body. It has a fun pattern of hearts with a few in bright red to match the sleeves and trim, and would be great for snuggling with someone special. The cutie on the right is our group gift from zOOm called Little Deer Cropped Sweater. He must be a reindeer with those decorated antlers and fun collar (Santa's perhaps?) and the red nose made me think Rudolph. The sweater comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. I have already been complimented on how cute this sweater is by a random stranger in a store, so I am glad I'm not the only one who enjoys the whimsical side of this season.

    Each new week, I approach as a new opportunity for positive experiences, and this week is especially exciting because it brings a new month too. New rounds of events and hunts are just around the corner, and December means Advent calendars all across the grid with a bounty of free or very low cost goodies. I probably will not be able to blog very many of those because of my morning schedule having shifted a bit this year, but I will try to get a few in and will share websites to help you find those calendars too. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Black Friday Pretty asf



            I had so much fun shopping this weekend! I didn't plan it that way, but what a great way to come back to SL after two years and walk right in to Black Friday sales. So many stores were 50% off and it was so much fun to peruse the designer's flickr as I waited for the store to rez and see what they have released in the last two years that I simply had to have. These Blueberry flare jeans were one such must have purchase that I literally squealed when I saw the flickr photo. I have not tried to shop Blueberry in a long time and the sim was full all weekend making it nearly impossible to go shopping. What is her recipe for success? Well first Blue makes really well meshed and textured stylish clothing, then she gives great deals such as a 500L gift card to every group member, and combines that with a 50% off sale. As most sales this weekend, the Blueberry sale lasts until tomorrow so I hope you can get into the sim. If not your 500L gift card can be used for the next two weeks. 

         I went to erratic. Maybe things have changed since I last played, but previous to this weekend the most I had ever seen an erratic sale was 30% off. This Black Friday sale was 60% off! I could not believe how inexpensive that made the clothing and I bought so many things like this pretty asf top. If you are late to the sales, I say RUN, don't walk to the 60% off erratic sale that ends tomorrow. 

          I did the Skin Addiction Black Friday sale (which is a group you can join inside of SL). I thought it was really fun! You can pick up a HUD and then click it to teleport to all the stores that are participating in the sale. My favorite find was this 50% off Lara Hurley skin, Alana. 

           I got too excited and bought what used to be my skin tone, midtone. I should have demoed more and tried the head skin on with my Maitreya body skin because I quickly realized they no longer matched. When I left the game two years ago Lara Hurley had 6 skin tones. Apparently new skin tones in a range of 8 new colors was released in 2020. After figuring all that out and demoing the 8 new skin tones on my entire body, I decided on a new skin tone, Pale. I went back and bought another color of the skin. So- if you are going to Lara Hurley and it has been a while, the skin tones are brand new as of 2020. Your old skin tone has changed and you probably need to demo and decide on your favorite. My old skin tone was darker than it used to be and I ended up going with the new 2020 Lara Hurley Pale tone. 



          I have bought a new head, Genus, and I really love it. I demoed every new head that has been released in the last two years from Catwa, Lelutka, and Genus and fell in love with this Genus head. I also figured out baked on mesh and I am wearing BOM skin and makeup! I think it is really going to be fun to play around with BOM makeup layers and I think my makeup monday blogs might need to come back. 

           Last, I went to Magika which is also 50% off. I love the Magika hair textures! My favorite blonde that I am wearing is a little bit of a pinky blonde, so cute!

         So many stores are 50% off this weekend and most of them through tomorrow, Cyber Monday, at midnight. What were your must shop at stores this weekend? Let me know in the comments. 

    Have fun shopping!

    Cabin in the snow



    There’s a cabin in the snow
    Where the rabbit people go
    And they gather all their walnuts from below
    They come from many miles
    Singing folk songs all the while
    Just to sit there in the piles of snow

    Cabin in the snow, cabin in the snow
    I’d like to go to a cabin in the snow
    Cabin in the snow, cabin in the snow
    Maybe we can go to a cabin in the snow

    Just might feel like singing Autumn song

    Just might feel like singing Autumn song
    I was pretty excited for SL Black Friday this year.  I made a list of all my favorite stores and waited for the sales to start.  I also watched notices of all the secondlife groups I am in for notifications on new stores to check out.  There were so many great deals!  During my bargain hunting spree, I stumbled on Beauty of Darkness.  The Almost There Top and Mistery Pants were both free group gifts.  (The group is also Free to join.)  The top and pants are both BOM layers.

    It’s getting chilly out, so I needed a jacket.  I dug through my inventory and found the Laila Jacket by WellMade, which I picked up a while ago for free at the The Free Dove. It’s nice to find little gems tucked away in your inventory, isn’t it?  I don’t remember when I got the jacket, but it is very cute.  To get it, just join their free group and click on the box.

    Black Friday Weekend

    Life is better at the beach

    Hello from the beach! Did you shop til you drop this weekend? Nearly every brand that you can think of is having a Black Friday Sale, including some 50% off gift cards for future purchases. I bought the new Barb skin from Lara Hurley for 50% off. If you were wanting a new face, LeLutka is also running a 50% off sale for all mesh heads as well.

    Life is better at the beach

    Cheezu is also having a 50% sale! My outfit is a combination of 3 different outfits from the store. It’s easy to mix-and-match separates when they’re the same color. I’m so pleased I found a hairstyle that’s perfect for berets. Exile is having a 50% sale, get this Aubrey hairstyle and more at the main store.

    Life is better at the beach

    Did you score some great deals in SL this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

    What I’m Wearing:
    Exile – Aubrey
    cheezu – Kara Top, Love Day Skirt, Cold Outside Beret
    Reign – Mini Slips
