as i’m blogging, i am also watching this movie && it is probably in my top ten favorites, evar~ /me jams && ogles j.aniston
anyway~ the look i’ve got for today is chalk full of freebie && cheapie goodness, since the last two haven’t really included much. and that’s what i do, i scope out cute freebs ’cause i’m cheap like that. …teehee. :3
and, y’know, just as a head’s up. post comin’ this weekend will be full of so many freebies, it’ll make your head spin. no lie!
way back when i was a wee newb, i liked SL for the whole nifty 3D virtual world aspect. dressing my avatar was fun, but wasn’t what i focused on. i liked exploring, i liked chatting, i liked hopping from sim to sim && back again. i always wore freebie skins, freebie clothes, freebie hair… just ’cause it was there (&& ’cause i was still cheap even back then, go figure). but as i’ve said here in the past, the first avatar that really felt like me was neko. and then i slowly started to.. actually care about what my avatar looked like.
belleza was one of the first skin brands where it really clicked with me. the alyson skin, and then the elle line… it was like kismet. i wore those skins into the *ground*, i loved ’em hard. so when i made my triumphant return to SL earlier this week, belleza was a top priority to check for new skin deliciousness.
…and lemme just say, i was *floored* by the group gifts. floored! the skin i’m wearing here is erika && it reminds me a lot of elle. it’s probably why i love it so much. the lips are gorgeous, the skintone is perfect (i’m wearing sunkissed but the gift includes a lovely range in skintones!), and the makeup.. flawless as usual. and the fact that the tone of erika i’m wearing has blonde brows, it just. oh man. not gonna lie, i peed a li’l bit when i tried this skin on.
as for other freebies && cheapies, the necklace i’m wearing from burroughs is a new free gift. i’m always amazed by the quality from burroughs jewelry and this necklace is no exception. it’s color change and adorable and absolutely lovely~
plus! there’s a 99L sale going on right now at burroughs. if the freebie necklace doesn’t interest you, inexpensive but super high quality jewelry should. 😉
my tattoo is from my beloved para designs && is a hunt prize. i can never resist a good tattoo, but a *free* tattoo that only costs a bit of huntin’ time is an insta-win for me. there’s quite a few hunts going on at para designs (hinthint: zombie popcorn prize is nice too! but that’s for another post) && an entire table worth of freebies by the entrance, it’s totally worth a TP in to have a look around if you love ink the way i do.
the socks and eyeballs i’m wearing are past && present 50L fridays items, too from kyoot and plastik. and my tee, it cost a whopping 2L at the surf couture outlet. it’s really all about finding the right things to spend your lindens on, and finding some hidden good deals (see what i did there? hidden? hunt prizes? no? …kay) for the rest, and working it all together. being frugal can still have you lookin’ fierce, if you know where to go~ amirite?!
