Here I go…Whooshhhh!

Hello fabulous ones! My weekend is being a little lazy, so I thought I would find some excitement in SL, and go sledding! How much fun is that! I grew up near a great sledding hill, so have a lot of fond memories of whooshing downhill on my toboggan.

wheee5

My first step was to find a sled. That turned out to be way easier than I thought it would. I was wandering around the November Vintage Gacha event, which has a lot of gachas from other, older events, and low and behold, KEI Spot had a gacha with these wonderful, wearable snowflyers. Yes, I said wearable! For only L$30 a play, you will get a sled that can be used anywhere that allows scripts, even if you cannot rez things, because you wear it instead of putting it on the ground. Once attached, you click on the sled, and have your choice of 3 positions, the first picture I put up was the sit, and the last picture of my post is the tummy pose. There is also a straddle pose, which I did not show. Here’s a little hint, if you find the sled floating above the ground, try changing your shape’s hover. Oh, and how cute is the bunny that rides with you! The November Vintage Gacha event runs until the 29th, so don’t wait too long to check it out.

wheee2

If you’ve ever been sledding, you know that your apparel is very, very important! You do not want to end up with frostbitten extremities. Trust me, I know from experience :P . I found some great boots to cover my tootsies, from Baby Monkey. The colour-changeable Szondi boots are one of their current free group gifts, you only have to join the group/wear your tag, and slap the board to get them. The group is L$250 to join, but this is one generous group, not to mention there are group only lucky boards you gain access to as well.

wheee3

With  my toes covered, I then made sure my ears were. The current round of The Dressing Room Fusion just started, and you will find these super cute earmuffs there. They are from Buttery Toast, and are only L$55 per colour, with 3 colours to choose from. The band, bow and bead decorations are all colour change by hud, so you can make them work with almost any outfit you put together. They are the perfect finishing touch to a winter look.

wheee4

Alrighty, I think I am ready to go. Although now that I am laying on my stomach, this hill looks a lot steeper than I thought! Wish me luck! Until next time, TTFN!

Weeeee…….

To the Lords and Ladies of the Fabulous Realm…

Greetings Oh Fabulous Ones,

druid 1_001

I have just returned from a far away land of Gacha and I come bearing many splendid treasures for you, fine gentle folk.

Okay, imagine I was saying that in a fancy Olde English accent!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business and there actually ARE many a splendid offing there. Eighty one designers have come together and set out some very fine fantasy gear for us this November with most offering two or more gachas. The Carnival runs until November 30th so you only have a little time left to get your Medieval on! You can check out the website for a preview here. One of the best things about this Carnival is the ton of men’s items here. Many of the vendors offered both male and female selections or unisex items.

First up is Zenith’s Druid. I love the wooden vines that twist and curl around the upper armor and bracers. Zooming in shows the delicate texture of bark and twigs. The simple linin skirt moves well and sets off the detailed leather works.  I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares on this machine! The branching crown AND the two handed wand. I was thrilled to find a “new to me” hair vendor at the Carnival! I’m wearing Blues’ hair in ‘Grace’
druid coll.

 

Next up is a Ranger outfit from !gO!  I didn’t pull the rare but I was lucky enough to get the jacket and the skirt in the same color and style. !gO!’s booth has both a men’s machine and outfit as well as the girl’s selection. The pose is from Rack Poses and their “priestess” gacha. There are six common poses and one rare couple pose. They all come with the eagle prop! At 50L a play, I grabbed several.  I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Ranger’ hair in the Landslide pack.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the rest of the Snow Queen set from The Annex.  In addition to the beautiful pearl earrings and chocker, this set has a pair of pearl ‘eye lashes’ and a diadem. There’s also a gorgeous crown but I wasn’t lucky enough to pull it. :(  Maybe next time.  The gown comes in a plethora of colors so I just picked my favorites: Forest, Twilight and Calypso.

I’m also wearing Damselfly’s blowin’ around hair “Gretchen.”  The rare also comes with a set of butterflies woven into the locks. I love the dynamic of the piece. Sure makes for a great picture!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL lets give thanks hunt 2 PICGreetings once again Fabulistas!  It’s time for your Friday Hunt Report and I would normally come up with some pithy comments about all the cool hunts going on right now, but I just got home from a very long drive and I’m BEAT. So… I’ll just let the hunts speak for themselves. Check them out! There are a bunch of fun hunts going on right now.

If you’re new to the sport, hunting is easy. You follow clues to find hunt objects in a kind of scavenger hunt… either in just one store or region, or hopping from region to region. Some are easy, others a bit more challenging, but mostly they’re just plain fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

So let’s do this hunting thing!  Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Fab Free Xia Nishi

Orange and Blue, I love you…together.

My love of colour was super excited when I saw the current group gift from Ecce Bellus, and how lucky was it that part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt gift from Opal matched it perfectly! The FabFree blog luck fairy was looking down on this Fairey.  LOL

So, who loves contrasting, yet compatible colours? Me!! I just love the combination of orange and blue on the Miss Sunday dress from Ecce Bellus. It is their most recent group gift, and it is free to all group members. This lovely mesh dress comes in the standard sizes, and the texturing is so beautifully done. The group is L$50 to join, but so far, the group gifts have been plentiful, and this dress alone is more than worth that fee.

europeandinner2

My ‘totally perfect for this dress’ bracelets, are from Opal, and are Opal’s contribution for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. Like all DTH gifts, these are free, you just need to find the turkey hidden in the store. The Roxy bracelets, in the colour combo called Rio, actually have 6 bracelets, each a different, but complimentary colour, so you can match them to many a different outfit. You only have until November 30th to get any of the hunt gifts, so don’t procrastinate!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful evening/day, and I will be back tomorrow! Until then, TTFN :) .

Down The Street I’m The Girl Next Door

Hello everyone. I’ve been absent for a couple of days due to feeling a bit on the sickly side but Im starting to feel better so I am back to show more great goodies you can find around the grid.

Today I am going to be showing you some things from The Kawaii Project. These adorable dresses by Katat0nik are the epitome of cute. I about fainted when I saw them in the gacha’s, because for L$75 a pull, its a steal! Whats even better is you have the choice between standard fitmesh for regular avatar bodies and a fitmesh that works beautifully with the SLink Physique body!
Untitled

There are several different styles to play for in the Gacha, so I couldn’t resist showing you a couple more that I won. Especially as I am completely smitten by them! It also gave me the opportunity to show you a couple more of the colours of the Hair Bows from the group gift by Glow Designs! Their group is L$10 to join and you get a bumper pack of hair bows in the gift!
Untitled

Another aside is this really sweet skin that is the Hee skin by VCO. This is the rare prize in their gacha filled with Hee Lip tattooes and is L$69 per pull!
Untitled

Back to The Kawaii Project, if you join the event group you can find two really great gifts. One is a set of really pretty nail varnishes for SLink hands and Belleza hands by Quirk. Below you can see the HUD so you can see the colours available.

Untitled

The other free group gift for the event is this really fun Couch and rug set that is by Atomic! The little plush toys are from the Exposure gacha at the event! I couldn’t resist showing you the four that I won and there are others to try for too!

Untitled

This round of the Kawaii Project is open until 29th November so you have plenty of time to take a trip to Cutesville!
