Swank is here! I get so excited when it is Swank time. Off I went, credit card in hand, to snatch up some goodies. First I satisfied my hair addiction by buying C H A R M E Kenna hair for $199L. It’s beautiful and frames my face just right. Of course I had to get new eyes too and finally found the perfect grey eyes for my Vista head. They are Mandala Catwa and Lelutka Eyes but also include Omega appliers. $80L, what a bargain!
The top is part of the SEVEN Betina outfit from the $55L sale list. $55L at SEVEN. The jeans are Montague Ripped Up Jeans $89L at The Cheeky Parrot from the $55L sale list. And the shoes are a group gift from ALB Dream fashion, free with free group join. Look around everywhere if you go there, group gifts are scattered throughout the store mixed in with regularly priced items. Sort of like a scavenger hunt!
What a wonderful place to showcase these items….Deepmarsh by the Sea. It’s gorgeous, so many photo opportunities, poses and props to play with. Estate windlight gives the sky an eerie yellow cast which makes for some interesting photos. Just lovely.
Fameshed is one of my favorite shopping events. I always find something different and cool. Today was no exception.
The first thing I picked up were these great Wideleg Trousers by Coco. They are $250L at Fameshed. Next I had to have AvaWay Abigail Bracelets and Rings Set. I love that the rings and bracelets aren’t huge and chunky and there is a hud for metal and stone colors. They are $225L at Fameshed. Finally my favorite item, the Mina Sandra interactive hair. It is $300L at Fameshed. The hair is dry until you fall into or get pushed into, or voluntarily jump into default s.l. water. Then, as if by magic, it is wet! It takes 135 seconds to dry in the sun, or 5 seconds to dry with the included blow dryer!
Welcome to my tea house. Let me pour you a cup and hope it refreshes you.
I am wearing Milky House Yukata NatuBotan $250L. It comes complete with geta (the shoes). The hair is Tuty’s Maiko Updo $160L on the marketplace. It comes with the hairstick.
In case you were wondering, Chashitsu means a tea house where the tea ceremony is performed. This marvelous tea house was $249L on the marketplace. The best part….it is only 1 prim, and there are 10 different patterns to choose from. To complete the look The Japanese Ocha Color Change Tea Table set. It is $399L on the marketplace, but worth every penny. The animations are wonderful and it comes with a lantern, bamboo planters and a food rezzer as well as tea. The color of the rug, table and cushions can be changed via a hud.
I made it into Uber first try this time! What is the world coming to?
First picture is Ison Farah Top in white $225L, Coco Extremewidelegjeans in light blue $250L and Truth Bloom for $250L. All available at Uber. I love everything about this outfit. The picture was taken at Diabolito Bay.
Second picture is Mossu Angelic bra and panties $199L each. The picture doesn’t do them justice, they sparkle like subtle diamonds in the light. Hair is Truth Bloom, same as the first picture, but with the style hud the hair is back and the bangs are more full. All available at Uber. Picture was taken at the Isles of Ice.
I really do love that Scoop It page! Here are a few other items I picked up using the Scoop It web page.
D!va Hair Aria free with free group join. I love the simple, yet elegant style and the flowers are a lovely touch. Graffitiwear group gift shorts free with $5L group join fee, and Loki Anita Jeans Top free with free group join.

One of my friends turned me on to Scoop It, a webpage that lists group gifts, subscriber gifts, promos and freebies. So I opened the page and started hopping. Each listing includes the landmark and if it costs to join the group and how much, which is very helpful. I picked up a lot of items.
This blog I will be showing 4 of the items I picked up. First is this beautiful Lori dress and Sonnet pumps by Hilly Haalan, both free with free group join. Both include an extensive color hud. Second is a cute Fashion Addiction Luna anklet with a crescent moon on it. It also comes with a huge color hud and fits most mesh bodies. Also free with free group join. Third is this adorable Jellyroll Alice hairstyle with flower. It has a pastel color hud. Free with free group join. And last but not least, the Fabulous eyelashes by Pout for Catwa, Lelutka or Vista, free with free group join.
I found a beautiful photo spot called Butterfly Beach. I wasn’t the only one as there were several people there taking pictures too. For good reason, it’s absolutely lovely. Do stop by and have a look around and take some pictures of your own.
It was time for a more drastic change and after reading Strawberry Singh’s Vista Zoe Bento Head blog, I decided I wanted to try it for myself. $3500L for the head and the ao! What a bargain. I love all the bento animations, the expressions, the face is so pretty and I paired the head with Strawberry Singh’s Zoe shape, $99L on the marketplace, just tweaking it a bit here and there. The skin is 7 Deadly Skins Chantal in Pineapple, it was a November group gift. Put on my favorite Stealthic Passion hair $300L in red and I’m ready to go show this look off. That is exactly what I did at Baja Norte sims. There is a lot to see and do here and what a wonderful place to take pictures.
