Follow Your Dreams

This beautiful new release from ROA is a perfect end to my current journey. Made with hope and encouragement for those to follow their dreams, this “Follow Your Dreams” dress has left me with a smile on my face as I say farewell to everyone.

The strapless dress is hud-driven with 6 different patterns. I chose to show off the baby blue music note pattern since music has been a source of comfort during this struggle. “Follow Your Dreams” is rigged for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, both Slink, and TMP. This beautiful piece will be available at the mainstore on Friday, February 23rd, 2018!

Even though my dream has been put on hold, I hope that your dreams come true and the path to it isn’t painful, stressful or a struggle. Never give up hope and continue to follow them. Life is too short, don’t live it with regrets! Thank you, everyone, for your support!

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.

LoVer

I’m a loser…I mean lover! I totally didn’t take out a red marker and put a “V” over the “S”. But to be honest, I can be a loser sometimes, a sore loser that is. I hate losing and can be very stubborn. So when life sent a marker rolling to my feet (…I borrowed one from my neighbor), I took it and made myself a better shirt…

Not really though, I wish I was as talented as Ms. Billie Joe (Beautifully) designer & owner of Loki. My “Lover” dress is a free group gift from Loki which is free to join. It comes in the following sizes: Altamura, all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink.

MMM… Mina
My gorgeous “Shelley” hair is an MMM (noon round) exclusive from Mina Hair by Mina Nakamura which is free for only a limited time/supply today. If you missed the chance to grab it for free, you can grab both the midnight and noon round on Sunday at midnight for $50L each. Mina V.I.P ($200L to join) members can grab it for free~

Gacha Garden, Again~
I try to add pieces of other events together to serve as a reminder that there are free gifts for you to pick up! So when I remembered a cute hairband from Candy Crunchers by KittyMeow Tigerpaw that would go well with the lovely dress, I added it to my outfit. The headband is a free group gift for the Gacha Garden which is free to join.

There are over 50 free group gifts for Gacha Garden group members~ You can find some of the gifts, I showcased here: Lacey Rose and Half Pink.

Valentine’s with KC

[Photo 1] The denim looks a bit rustic in my photo due to my the sun setting on my windlight.

As I wait for my favorite event (you can read about it here) to start, I found this cute “Valentine” dress and a few more super cute free group gifts from Kendrasy Creations by Kendrasy. The group is free to join.

The “Valentine” denim halter dress comes in 4 hud-driven variations, 2 solids and 2 prints. They all have the adorable heart cutouts~ It comes in the following sizes: all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink.

[Photo 2] Floral prints are my favorite!

I don’t know why but I always tend to look right. Either I perfected the timing or I subconsciously declared my left side more photogenic. Regardless of which way I’m looking, the dress looks fabulous from both sides.

My “Rosse” rose dress is also a free group gift from Ms. Kendrasy but for the Mesh Body Friends affiliate group instead of her store’s group. “Rosse” comes in the rose print for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink.

You can find 3 other free group gifts out for the Mesh Body Friends group which is free to join! I’m off to head into the madness!~

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…)

Lacey Rose

I have always found lace sexy, no matter where it is or how much there is of it. There’s just something about them that draws my eyes and tickles my heart.

My “Rose” lace dress is a free gift (buy for $0L) from Nerd Alert by Abigail Erin. I love the flower design with the vibrant roses covering the ladies. The free group gift comes with another white floral dress (not pictured) that can be worn under the lace dress. I chose to wear them separately to show off the lace clearly. Sizes: all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, both Slink, TMP and both Tonic.

Nerd Alert also has a few free group gifts and free gifts for both gals & guys along with a midnight mania board and lucky chairs. The group is free to join.

Close up for a better look at the eyes~

If you saw my post yesterday, I shared a couple free group gifts from the Gacha Garden. Like the “Sacred” tattoo from Speakeasy which can be seen from a different point of view in the first photo.

You can also find my short “Jill” hair from Pr!tty by Karla Marama and my “Quartz” eyes from Musa by Filomena Quinnell as a free group gift for Gacha Garden members which is free to join. “Jill” comes in a rigged and unrigged version (alpha included) with a fatpack of hair colors (hud driven) while “Quartz” comes in a system layer and an Omega applier.

If I remember correctly the Gacha Garden ends at the end of the month but for some reason with this event I’m always unsure (*laughs* it’s all that pixie dust..). Just in case though, head over there soon!
