Free!

I don't like to point the finger, but SOMEONE has been a blog hog lately. He just hasn't let me near the place. Took me two days to break in and take over.

OR...

I have been a slacker. Hmmm, no. I am going with the first one! Less blame on me.

Either way, I have some great items to show you today and found a beautiful sim to show them off in. The sim is called Artarra and it is STUNNING. I loved wandering along the little paths and finding hidden spots. Great fun.

A is for Apparel!

Teaching techniques and learning styles have changed since I went to grade school. I even remember when Kindergarten was half day. Today, kids go to school from 9AM all the way until 3PM- that's a long day!
Usually when you learn your ABC's, you discover that A is for Apple, B is for Button, C is for Cat, and etc.
Today, A is for apparel. Okay, it's still for apple, but it leads to apparel at the Grumble store.
When Arya mentioned that Grumble had a store hunt running, I knew I had to go check it out. I've always admired Grumble for remembering to put something out for the men! Almost all of the apples I found contained something unisex or had something for the guys. Woohoo!

I'm a Hair Ho...arder

This weekend, I went hair crazy. I've done a post in the past where it was all about hair and once again, I'm here to show you more!
In every picture of this post, I'm wearing a new hair style. I'm a hair hoarder, there, I said it. You just never know when you'll need that certain style to top off a look you're trying to achieve.
When I see a great deal, I cannot resist! It doesn't help that my girlfriend is an enabler of my hair addiction. Just yesterday she announced that after four days of multiple visits to TRUTH, she was finished purchasing all the hair she wanted from their sale. *Sigh* It's a hairy situation.

Hanging Out On the Weekend

I love finding new places and re-discovering others. I was reading Chic Aeon's blog and saw a sale at Imani. Everything is 5L and I found some dollarbies as well! I had the feeling I had been there before, so I am not sure if this was new or a re-new!

Grumble also has a new mainstore and a Back to School Hunt going on. You are looking for red apples strewn about the store. Some great bargains to be had.

And one of my fav stores, Kamikaze, has some awesome newness. I LOVE the new capris and jeans. The colours rock!

Spoiled

I admit, I love being spoiled. There are many vendors in SL who spoil their loyal customers with gifts, but the person who does it best is Ayanna Slade of AQUA. If you've subscribed to her store, Aqua, then you'll know what I mean. This morning she sent out a 100L gift card and held an opening day party. Not only that, but she also has male and female gifts set out for the event.
If you missed out this morning, don't worry! There's another party tonight at 6pm SLT and runs until 9pm SLT.
The theme of the party is "Best in AQUA Mashup". So put your 100 Gift Card to good use and win! The prize for the best male and female Aqua Mashup is 500L. Of course, there will be trivia and great music. I hope to see you all there!

The Unexpected

I've posted before about how hunts can introduce you to new stores and people, but you can also find great items when you least expect it.
There's nothing like going into a store to find your hunt gift and also seeing a store freebie set out for you. It's like getting double gifts and your excitement grows x 2 (cue in "Double Rainbow" factor). A two for one deal, score!
Today I'm showing you a few of things I've picked up while on hunts.

Ready for Summer

I am standing in a lovely house from Starwind called Summer. Starwind is having a 50L sale on all their builds and they are so lovely. The store is closing down, but all the houses and skyboxes will still be available on XStreet. Fleetwind says she will keep creating, so be on the look out for more! I love the textures!

Some yummy items today too, so enjoy!

Plaited hair is from Truth and updo is from ChiChickie.
