With All My Heart

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day! ♥ With all the love spreading around SL, I wish I had more time to blog about all the beautiful gifts! Especially with Vietnamese New Years tomorrow, there just’s no time to spare!~

Thank you, Harry!
After a great time with my boyfriend, I found out that ISON by Harry Hyx, had a free Valentine’s gift out! Being one of my favorite brands, I rushed over and picked up the gorgeous “Bella” dress! When I saw the vendor photo, I immediately knew I would love it! “Bella” is rigged for Freya, Maitreya, and both Slink!

Super Generous Lamb
Then, when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I found out Lamb by Lamb Bellic had a new free group gift out for Valentine’s Day! My super cute adorable “Cupid” hair is a fatpack with over a 100 colors and 6 barrette colors. (3 hairbase and an alpha are included for classic avatars as well.)

The group is currently free to join! Be quick though, I thought there was a fee to join before so I don’t know how much longer it will be free!

Adorable Searen & Petit Chambre
Every time I see something cute, I squeal in real life and my boyfriend and cat always look at me weirdly…*laughs* So when I saw a bunch of free cute gifts from Searen by Oritasho, you can bet they stared at me weirdly. My cute “Diamond” heart necklace is one of the cute six free gifts! No group is required, just buy for $0L.

On the topic of cute, Petit Chambre by Naotarou has a new free group gift for Valentine’s day too! The “Valentine” nails come in 3 mix colors/designs with appliers for MaitreyaOmega, Slink, and Vista.

Delicious Lipstick
I love lipsticks but I have a hard time finding one that isn’t too plump or too shiny and when I do find one I like, it doesn’t fit my lip’s shape or face well. So when .xxx by CrossColor put out 6 lipsticks as a free group gift, I was excited to try them!

They are exactly what I wanted and fit perfectly since my skin is from .xxx! The lipstick comes in 6 colors with appliers for 6Doo, Catwa, LAQ, LeLutka, and Omega. The group does cost $50L to join but, there’s 14 other free group gift (skins, make-up, accessories, and clothing) ready for you to pick up.

Triple ♥

I don’t know why I didn’t think about showcasing the accessories like this before…I’m getting better at this aspect ratio thing too!~

Those XOXO heart boxes are starting to warm up to me! I was much luckier today than I was yesterday. Nani’s box is still unamused and immune to my charms, what is it going to take to charm this thing!?

Yesterday, I showed off a free cute heart ring from Moondrop for the XOXO hunt. Today with some new charms up my sleeves (or should I say skirt…no sleeves on this dress!), I persuaded sPunk‘s and Dilly Dolls‘s heart for my cute key choker and heart bag!

My super cute “Key To My Heart” choker is from sPunk by SpunkKitsune. The choker is hud-driven with 13 gems and 7 metal color options. It is unrigged and can be resized manually.

I usually don’t use or wear bags but Dilly Dolls by Oriana Kuhr made it so irresistible. The “Studded Heart” bag comes in two styles, the long shoulder bag (pictured above) and the short strap handbag (not pictured). They are unrigged and customizable with 6 bag and heart colors, 2 strap and trim colors and 5 spike colors.

Valentine Earrings
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, EarthStones by Abraxxa Anatine has put a new free group gift out for EarthStones VIP members. The “Huggie Heart” earrings are unrigged and come in two metal colors, silver and gold. The color, size, and brightness can be changed with a single touch.

Lucky Hair
Today is a really good day, not only was I lucky with the XOXO boxes, C’est la vie!’s lucky board dished out a lot of Xs today! My free “Janna” hair comes with a color hud that includes 6 shades of black & white.

Ms. Larcoco Mathy, owner/creator of C’est la vie!, generously filled the board with “Janna” in 5 different color packs (Blonde, Brown, BW, Colors, and Red). The board changes every 10 minutes and also has 2 bow packs in the same board. There also cute tote bags on the other board.  C’est la vie!’‘s group tag is required but it’s free to join!

Happy early Valentine’s day everyone!~ ♥

Luck & Romance

A few days ago, I was so excited about the MMM that I forgot about another event I was looking forward to! I lost track of time and missed a few days of the XOXO hunt! Luck is already leaving my side… (╥ω╥)

Luckily, I was able to convince Decoy’s & Moondrops’s XOXO heart box to take pity on me and got this sexy floral lingerie and heart ring for free!

Decoy’s Secret
My “Lexy” lingerie, from Decoy by Annette Voight, is a 4 set-piece. It includes the red floral print bra & underwear, the chest harness, and the skirt frill garter harness. I love the flower pieces across the harness with the spikes coming out from the center. Each piece can be worn seperately~ The lingerie is rigged for Maitreya only!

Moondrop’s Heart
Because my blog re-sizes my photos, you can’t see the cute little heart ring from Moondrop by AtomicFaery really well. So I put up a vendor photo that was included with the ring so you guys can get a better look!

This image belongs to AtomicFaery.

As you can see it’s unrigged and modifiable to fit any size hand. I needed to adjust mine to fit my hand (I just shrunk it a bit). The ring is customizable with 7 band color options and 13 heart color options.

The Hunt
The XOXO hunt works a bit differently than most hunts. Instead of just searching high and low for the hunt object, you just need to be near the XOXO heart box and say “xoxo” in your nearby chat. The XOXO heart box is in plain sight (not hidden) at the entrance, in the store, or at the landing point.

If you’re lucky and able to convince the XOXO heart box that you’re full of romance, you can get the gift for free. If not, you can try again tomorrow or you can bribe the box for $50L. I have yet to convince Nani’s XOXO heart box yet…or any of the other 17 boxes.

The hunt started on the 9th and ends on the 18th. You have 6 more days to try and get 33 free gifts or buy them for $50L. You can pick up the free hunt hud in-world or on the marketplace. Good luck! If you have any question or need any help, feel free to IM me!

Oh, before I forget, my make-up is a free gift from Izzie’s which was blogged here and my pose is a free gift from Princess Rhodes Designs by PrincessOnexy for the E\M Event. The pose is part of a hud with over a 100 poses in it~ The E\M Event ends in 3 days on the 15th! The E\M Event was mentioned in these posts as well Date Night and Finding The Right One.

Ready for Tết

I have an aspect ratio issue… Providing close-ups are hard when I use my tiny Tablet for SL and editing! :s

Tết or Vietnamese New Year is this Friday and I’m excited to see my family after missing them on Christmas! I’m not so excited about the nagging and awkward questions though.

Traditionally, Vietnamese women would wear an áo dài (similar to the Chinese’s Qipao/Cheongsam) to celebrate the New Year but since I’m Americanized and drop most of my culture’s traditions (with my family’s constant disapproval) I will be wearing a dress with a very similar pattern as my cute dress above when I come to visit!~

My Tết Outfit
My floral “Lizandra Set” outfit is a new free group gift from FurtaCor by Marinahh Mayako. The outfit includes the dress and heels with 14 color (8 solid/6 floral) options for the top part of the dress, lower part, and the heels. The dress and heels are rigged for Maitreya, both Slink, and TMP.

Btw, the free gift is not associated with Tết or made exclusively for it. The beautiful red floral pattern reminded me of my culture. The FurtaCor group costs only $1L to join with 13 other free group gifts out. Many of the gifts are outfits so you’re getting a whole lot for only $1L.

I don’t know if this fee is temporary or for a limited time but it was free in December & January and had a higher fee before that!~ Marinahh also has 6 more affiliate group gifts out for MGSN , SLF&O, etc.

Supernatural Hoops
Supernatural by Ms. Sombria Baily is one of my favorite accessories brands. Everything I’ve gotten from there is beautiful and my gold cross “Harper” earrings are no exception! The hoops come with 7 gem colors and resizer hud. You can pick them up for free at the Gacha Garden. (Group tag required, free to join)

Valentine’s with Izzie
The beautiful pink shimmery eyeshadow and lipstick is a free gift from Izzie’s for Valentine’s Day. They come in two shades of pink, light and dark. The eyeshadows have two variations, one with and without eyeliner. The makeup set also comes with heart decals (not pictured) for your cheeks in 3 colors. The makeup and hearts come in an applier for Catwa, LAQ (Lulu/Neve), LeLutka, Omega and System Layers.

You can pick up your free gift at the mainstore or on the marketplace.

Ultimate Birthday Madness

This logo belongs to Salt (xxsaltandpepperxx).

I’m feeling better today and just in time too! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ One of my favorite events, Monthly Midnight Madness by xxsaltandpepperxx, starts tonight at midnight and I can’t wait for all the madness to start!

The Monthly Midnight Madness is back this month with 30 (15 at midnight / 15 at noon) awesome exclusive free gifts for their birthday round! For those new to MMM, it is a monthly event that starts the second Saturday of each month.

And because it’s the birthday round, a special event will be held as a special celebration. All the previous 2017 exclusive gifts are brought back and will be on sale between $50L-$99L on another SIM. This is the one and only final chance to grab anything missed in the last year along with some items from past participants!

How It Works
MMM is a one-day event that is split up into two rounds. The midnight round and noon round. You do need to join the Monthly Midnight Madness group to participate which is free to join.

  • The midnight round starts at 12am (SLT) Saturday and ends when the 1500 gifts are claimed or when the noon round starts.
  • The noon round starts at 12pm (SLT) Saturday and ends when the 1500 gifts are claimed or until 12am Sunday.

Because of the extremely large amount of traffic during the event, there is a 50K maximum avatar complexity limit. You will be teleported home if you exceed the amount. This year, the rule will be enforced with a new script where the boards will not give you the gift if you have a complexity of 50K or more.

Also, expect most SIMs to be full an hour before the event even starts. Once the event starts all SIMs will likely to be full. If a SIM happens to restart, go down, or a board has stopped working. the group chat will have you covered on updates. Be patient and try again, you’ll get in eventually!

Last Chance & Add-Ons
If you missed out on the exclusive gift and really wanted it, you can purchase it with the Last Chance Vendors at a discounted price ($25L-$50L) which starts on Sunday at midnight. Last Chance Vendors will stop working on Monday at midnight.

Some designers will offer add-ons (additional colors / color fatpacks for the items) at a discounted price for the event. The add-ons are available to be purchased when the event starts. Most designers will have them out before midnight and you can purchase it before the madness starts. The add-ons will return to their full retail price on Monday at midnight.

In-Game Visual Guide
At each participating store, there will be a Monthly Midnight Madness area/section that looks like this:

Monthly Midnight Madness @ Third Eye | This image is a snapshot of the store.

They are usually in front at the entrance. Some may require you to walk from the landing point. Third Eye, for example, lands you in front of the boards.

#1 is the midnight board with the midnight prize. The clock underneath will countdown to midnight. It will display 0/1500 at midnight when the event starts.

#2 is the noon board with the noon prize. The clock underneath it will countdown to noon. It will display 0/1500 at noon when the event starts.

#3 is the add-on that is being offered at a discounted price. The add-on will anywhere next to the boards. Stores with add-on are noted on the Gift Guide page.

#4 is the Last Chance Vendor. The clock underneath it will countdown until midnight Sunday when the vendor will start working.

Tips & Hints to Surviving The Madness

♦ Before the event starts, activate your tag and check out the Gift Guide. Prioritize what gifts you would want.

♦ Wear the kit provided to you in the group notice or make sure you’re under 50K complexity. (I personally go full alpha for the event, it’s a quick drop in and out. no one is looking and it’ll help those around you!)

♦ I can’t begin to say how useful this next one is if you are using a Firestorm Viewer, use the “Show Friends Only” setting to derender those around you. World > Show Friends Only (it’s at the bottom of the tab). It’ll help reduce a huge amount of lag.

♦ Most of the time moving away the landing point is a good thing but with so many avatars, using your camera to cam to the boards is a better option and faster option than pushing your way through.

♦ Others have said to go in after an hour or two after the mass majority has died down to get your gift. It’s usually less laggy and the board responds faster. (I’m too paranoid to do this but the latest I started was an hour and was able to get all the gifts.)

♦ This one is optional, but I usually scope out the stores I want gifts from so I know where the boards are so I don’t have to find it in the middle of the lag madness. (I also landmark the store so I have a beacon when I teleport there later since my memory is so great…)

White & Black Night

I didn’t realize how long this post was going to be until I finished it. *laughs* If you are running short on time (or just TL;DR), please scroll down to the credits to grab your freebies. Anything important will be bolded for your convenience.

Le Posh Gifts
I wanted to remind you guys that the Le Posh Event ends on February 13th and has free group gifts for everyone. I previously mentioned the Le Posh Event when showcasing Sinfully Sweet’s free gift which can be found here.

You can also find the sexy “Fishnet Mini” (Maitreya only) dress from RipRock by Paulyta Miles and the cute “Pearl” earring from Ava Girl by Lilac Niven out as a free group gift for the event. The Le Posh group tag is required and is free to join.

Lingerie Set
To cover my bits, MH Unique Design by Marrylinhope had me covered with her free “Miss You” Lingerie. The lacey lingerie set also comes with the stockings! It comes in an applier for Maitreya only.

“Miss you” is one of the dozens of free group gifts being offered at MH Unique Design along with a whole wall of lucky letters! The group is free to join!

Chambre of Gifts
My “Lace” nails which you can semi-see in the photo is a free group gift from Petit Chambre by Naotarou. It comes in an applier with 3 colors for Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Vista. Petit Chambre also has a few more nails and eyes as free group gifts out. The group is free to join!

.XXX
“Rose” is a free full head and body skin applier that was donated to the Save The Children foundation where SL resident can donate whatever they wanted for the cause. It is not mandatory or obligated to donate, just greatly appreciated.

These images belongs to CrossColor.

For Valentine’s .xxx added a free pack of lipstick out on the same wall where “Rose” is at the Cinderella Cafe. The lipstick comes in 3 colors. ~ You can also pick up 2 shapes along with other gifts along the wall for free.

There’s more! At the mainstore, .xxx has 14 free group gifts with a joining fee of $50L. My choker and crescent necklace is also a free gift from their lucky board which does require group tag to use. The gifts include accessories, clothing, makeup, and skins. There are also 5 gift boxes that can be purchased for free!

Kuso Animation Override
The “poses” in my photo are snapshots of my AO. The problem with crediting them is that well, I literally tear apart different AO’s and build a custom one. With that said, I don’t know the name of the stand animation on the right. However, I do know Daiz Papp, owner of Kuso – Oracul Animation made both of them. You can find dozens of different AOs and poses at her mainstore.
