Plastik Elves at Christmas


There are lots of goodie bags scattered over Elliot & Bill sims for the reopening. Some are free - some are $1L (there are more on Elliot than Bill) - one of the bags is from The Plastik - it costs $1L and is full of goodies including this Elf Skin with Ears and Eyes and the Gloves I am wearing.


Close up of face on skin:


I have added Glow Studios Black Swan eyelashes and modded them to a gold shade with a little glow.

Hair is by Lamb - Glass Candy

Dress is by Zaara - Svara Wrap Dress

Hairbase is by Boon

Shoes and Socks - Moxie by Maitreya

Skin - Dutch Touch - Yri in caramel

And she is my favourite Lion Skins skin - so much so I am doing nudie pics!!!!



The face is just amazing - nicely detailed and can be cute or smexy depending on how you want to dress her up - or undress her as I have lol

The body shading is so well done and subtle

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this skin. For a demo go here:

Roll up, roll up .... new pants in town


... ladies and gentlemen, the weather outside is frightful but these new pants from TokiD are delightful. Only L$50L a pair, don't miss them!


TokiD has just released these cute rolling pants - only 50L and come in about 7 colours (most checked but one plain set is available)

I also bought this sweater while I was buying the pants - knit top yellow (it's a dull yellow - more khaki I would say) - $120L

Books - Boston Boots - Reek (past 50L Friday)

Hat - Bobblehat from Concrete Flowers for AVDC Hunt (very cute)

Baf - Bukka - free (subscribo I think)

Picture taken at Sways - LOVE the cute little bears running around my feet!



There are so many sales and events on just now that I have been distracted from my inventory tidy task, not that I am complaining :)

Anyway today I took a break from shopping again to look into my exisiting inventory and this is what I came up with:


Skin and Hair attachment- Dekade - previous TDRB
Jacket - LeeZu - previous TDRB - or maybe TDR
Shorts - Mimikiri Piz shorts (I have the sweater too but not shown)
Lashes - Bukka Lush Changer
Nails and Rings - Mandala

Cool Beans


I shopped some new hair from Anaphora today - Ana. I love it - comes with a texture change beanie and one of the texture options (shown) is a plain knit that you can tint as you wish :)

Also what I love about this hair is the fact the pack I bought (naturals) gives you 6 colour choices from blonde to rich brown and a redish shade so no need to buy 3 packs of hair to get blonde, brown and red. The pack of 6 was $300L a good deal I think.


Also Worn

Skin - Grix - Serendipity -Tegan in Cream
Glasses - Muism
Shorts - ricielli (20L sale)
Sweater and Scarf - Couverture
Shoes and Socks - Maitreya Moxie

Shadows, sales and socks


I downloaded the latest version on Kirsten's viewer and I am having a shadow problem with it :( When I enable shadows, on my screen my avatar looks all a blur so I couldnt really see the picture I took - however when I opened it in PS it was clear - odd .......

As you may already know, Ricielli is having a $20L sale on all red items in store for a short time - I picked up a few things including the Petra Minidress. I am wearing the top of the Petra dress with the $50L Friday skirt from Deco's Evening Dress in Olive. I also bought the same dress in cherry when it was on $50L Friday - the top part of the dress will not work for me at all but I do like the skirts very much so I am happy.

I love Christmas - but it is an expensive time of the year - in both lives. However for all us Ebeneezers out there - Mr. Scrooge's Christmas Village is now open here: and we can get lots of little goodies for free including two cute pose sets from Olive Juice.

I told myself I would avoid red or green posts this month but already I am breaking my own rules!

I was at Milk Motion today looking to see if I could find the With Love Hunt prize as I did see someone (sorry can't remember the blog) make a post showing a cute skin as the gift. Anyway I could not find the item but I did see a cute cardi - and bought it in red (well 'tis the season). It comes with a sculpted bottom part which I am not wearing.

Later I was wandering around Tram and saw a sweet little dress that I thought would look cute with the cardi but it was only in Navy or White - of course I checked and saw they are modify (yay) so I grabbed the white and turned it red :)


The LB shoes from Luce were just the right shade so easy shoe choice.

Skin - one I havent worn for ages and I really like it - Ugly Duck - Laura - red

Hair - Louise Brooks in softest black from Clawtooth

Hairband - from FD - it was free

Umm yeah sorry for the title but this outfit from Mimikiri made my brain attack me with quotes from "Galaxy Quest"!!!


The skirt, top and jacket all all from the Holly range Mimikiri - top and skirt in the version Galaxy - and Jacket in Black. I think it is a lovely set - now all I need to do is find some nice Christmas parties where they serve plum pudding :)

I had been trying to do the 52 weeks of color challange today - but all the "plums" in my inventory are of various shades of some sort of purplish from lilac to dark purple so I am counting the hair I am using in this post as my "plum challange" - it is from Boon and is in Purple - but it looks like a deep victoria plum shade to me - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

The skin is from Dutch Touch - Yri in Caramel - winter make up

Boots are from G Field - short lace up boots - I have the fat pack of these and they are lovely - actually I have these in plum but I liked the black with my outfit better.

Tights - Ugly Duck - 10 denier tights

Lashes - Bukka Eye Lush Changer (speaking of Bukka - new item in LB - a tunic - I'm go to go stalk in a moment)

Lipstick - Dutch Touch in PLUM yay more plum

Freckles - Tres Bla

Pose and Set by Modd G - free (pose modded using avimator to move hair out of chest)

Yay! I'm Feeling the Love


and not just for the With Love Hunt


I am loving Jane - for 2 days (starting yesterday) all her stuff - yes EVERYTHING - is 50% off - I'm wearing a cardi from there - she makes lovely clothes and nothing is expensive even at full price - so if you miss the sale dont worry you can still shop there without spending vast amounts :)

I love the skybox from Awesome Blossom for the WLH - it is well made and really cute and cosy.

I also love Vent Du Sud - if you haven't been there GO! ALL furniture and knick Knackie stuff is only L$1 - I got a few items including the bed in the picture above.

My leggings are from Deetalz WLH prize - it is a good prize most certainly worth the money - you get leggings, dress and scarf

I'm also feeling love for Blur Mannequin - I am wearing some cute feather eye makeup which I got under the tree for 45l - it came with some cute shoes too. All Beeman's stuff is inexpensive so if you havent visited go take a look for nice poses and a few bits and bobs without breaking the bank.

Also shown

Skin - FD - Lucy May
Boots and Dress - Milk Motion - Boots are this weeks 50L Friday boots - I went back to get them this morning after I found the little blue dress at The Dressing Room Blue

Rugs - Coire - rugs from the attic (I thik these were a group gift)

I am NOT feeling the love for Project Themory for yet another week - it is really going downhill - which is sad as it was a good idea

Not Yet Feeling the Love :(


I have to say that after how much I have looked forward to the With Love Hunt I am feeling dissapointed - I have only done 4 stores (not in order) and at home opened 3 of the items and decided to stop hunting until I see some more pics of the items on blogs and go only for those that I will like.

The three I opened were:

1. Mortanique - after buying the nice chair yesterday I was hoping for a nice piece of furniture - instead it is a picture - now it is well made but - I was kinda "meh" when I saw it.

2. The next item I opened was the snowglobe from La Petit Mort - now I had seen that blogged and it looked fun - but in fact it comes with only one pose and that is on a poseball - again not a badly made item but not as good as I had hoped for.

3. I then opened the Callie CLine one - and was so dissapointed - the box said "Awesomeness" and I was quite hopefull - but inside were a collar and cuffs in black and white :(

The above is just how I felt about the items - other people may love them.

So back to my inventory - oh and hair I bought from CLawtooth today for $50L Friday - the only item on that list I got today.


Skin - Belleza - Elle Fair - past Group Gift

Eyeshadow - oh I have closed SL and cant remember - but I got it at the Fashion Circus - nice set of wintery shadows

Eyelashes - Bukka - eyelash HUD - has loads of nice options - this one is the white shades, long with gems on

Dress - Mimikiri - Vic in blue and silver

Eyes - Poetic Colors - Shallow Water

Lipstick - Mynerva - silver

Necklace, Bangles and Nails Mandala

Jack Frost's nipping at my nose


In RL it is a beautiful day - cold, frosty and the winter sun is shining :)

I shopped again in SL today - I have been looking at the new sweaters from fume for a few days and decided I would just get one today - in my inv I found leggings (maybe from a hunt) from fume as well.

I added my white knit boots from Anexx and the hair and scarf are from Maitreya Voluminous Scarf. The skin is from Dekade - Claire from past TDRB collection.

I took the picture at World's End - I loved the chair from Mortanique so I went over there and bought one too - nice poses in it :)


Can't think of a title!


Arrrgh!!!! It's only two days until the start of the With Love Hunt, then there is the Peace on Earth Hunt - and I'm sure many many more- I need to accept my inventory will never be sorted out on time.

This time however with the hunts I am going to try to only search maybe 2 or 3 items at a time, go home, unpack, try on and sort as I go along - well that's the plan but I will probably not stick to that!

I'm going to continue to try to open all my unopened boxes and view all my unviewed items in folders - its been fun finding stuff I didnt even remember having - and good to get rid of a lot of stuff I just would never use.

Here's some cute stuff I found in my inv and some new shoes (yes I shopped again - but they were inexpensive and cute)


Shoes - Beemans - Curse You - only 23L :)
Skin - Mother Goose - Lewrence - I got this at the LBs when I was stalking the Oyat skin
Pants - Milk Motion - my play suit
Under Pants - Anexx Knit Leggings in Pink - modded to be darker and shortened
Hair - Waffles - Blind Speech - Say Nil in Cream - I got this at DU4 and don't think I have worn it before and it's cute hair
Top - Go! Lolita top - free

I am hopeless!


I gave in to temptation and shopped again today! I bought some lovely hair from Boon and a few little things from The Sea Hole at the L$50 sale (only on certain items)

I had a set in my inventory from O'Bleak for ages called Bohemian Rapture which I loved but could not find a top that I really liked to wear with it - but at The Sea Hole I found a couple at 50L which I thought would work so here is the skirt with one of the tops and my new hair:

Fell off the wagon and bought some boots


I went along to Sebbia to stalk the lucky board there for the cute little boots - but after my two day stalk of Mother Goose I decided just to cough up the money and buy the boots - well they were only 100L, very cute and modifiable so why wait :) - I purchased in beige and have modded to a darker brown shade for this outfit. (the boots in the LB are dark brown - you need a group tag to get the boots)


I found this cute coat from *BP* that I had tucked away in my inventory - I love duffle coats - I bought it ages ago (last year I think) so I do not remember how much it was - but I like it a lot and was glad to have found it again.

The tights are from Fishy Strawberry

Boots from Sebbia

Hair from Dernier Cri

Skin - Mother Goose LB Oyat skin (still wearing it since my last post)

Beret is from Duboo - I have a few of these from the gatcha there

Day 5 - inventory clean up


I was distracted from my mission to organise my inventory by this beautiful skin by Mother Goose in one of the many Lucky Boards at her shop. I stalked it for 2 days! But I think it is worth it - it is called Oyat. Actually I got the demo and I would have purchased one of these but it is only available in fat pack - but that comes with 3 shapes and loads of versions of this skin for 900L - so it is still a bargain ... I may give in to temptation next month when I buy more lindens :)


I did some inventory tidy and found the following:


Skin - Mother Goose - Oyat - LB
Hair - Lamb - Honey in Honeycomb
Skirt - Milk Motion - my short skirt
Boots - Bax - prestige boots in brown

Arm Warmers - Mimikiri

Day 3 of Inventory Sort Out


I was worried that 50L Friday would weaken my resolve not to shop but to sort my inventory - but I was good - I only shopped the Boston boots from Reek.

These looked sturdy and work like boots and I wanted to make an outdoor worky type look. I tried on my Lumberjack Jacket from Lelutka - it is lovely but wasnt what I wanted - then I remembered a shirt and parka group gift that was recently given by the Coco Group.


Skin - Mynerva - cutie pie dimples - past hunt gift for OMG That's Adorable Hunt
Boots - Boston Boots - Reek for 50L Friday
Jeans - Maitreya Skinny Jeans
Socks - Marys Closet Daru Socks

Shirt and Parka - Group Gift from Coco
Hair - Dernier Cri - Sadie in brown shades (colour change hair)

Mission to sort my inventory - Day 3


I have managed to get my inventory down to just over 20k - it's still a mess but it has been fun looking at some of the stuff I have - and wondering "Why on earth do I have this???" many times!!

I found a whole load of free stuff from the gift section at KMADD - a section where designers who have a space there put out some gifts. Most of it is for men - so why did I take them??? a. I seem unable to pass a free item without grabbing to take a look, and b. sometimes men's stuff works well for us girls too.

Anyway if you havent been there (especially if you have a male avi) it's worth a pop along to have a look. I found, in the stuff I had from the KMADD free section, teeshirts from Reek - the folder has both male and female :)


TeeShirt - Reek - Ohai girls tee Pink
Skin - Sunny Su Soon Skin - DevonAoki - free and really sweet
Teeth - Teethy from Tik Tok
Socks - SLink Pink Toe Socks with smiley faces - cute - but they have invisiprims that can't be turned off :(
Shorts - *H&K* Moon Bunnystar dot pants - these are from a whole outfit I got ages ago when I was doing a hunt
Hair - Mikan-hair - honey bunny - gacha 30L - and so cute
Panda Bean Bag - Pink Fuel
