Some days all I want to do is sit at home in my favorite band shirt and listen to records with my cat. Finn, that’s my cat, even seems to enjoy when I occasionally sing along! Inevitably when the topic of music comes up, people ask “Who’s your favorite artist?” or “What band do you like best?”. Those questions are impossible for me to answer. I don’t have a favorite, I like them all, some more than others obviously, but even that changes with my mood. Certain genres have a special place in my heart because they are the proverbial soundtrack to my angst-riddled teen years. Mostly, music just speaks to me on so many levels. I can’t imagine life without it.

So, when I came across this sweet little t-shirt showing Yoko and John Lennon on the Marketplace, I had to have it! It isn’t mesh, and it doesn’t come with any appliers, but it’s a cute shirt and perfect for a casual outfit. While browsing through the Marketplace, I also came across this sightly off-the-shoulder cardigan. It’s got a kinda grungy feel to it, and hey, the ’90s are my decade, those were my teen years, so heck yes!! I know, grunge is not always the best fashion forward statement, but every now and then I just have to indulge in a little fashion nostalgia. Band shirt, check, funky sweater, check, now my look could not be complete without some printed tights to go under my denim shorts! Once again, the Marketplace held the answer. These super cute tights are by [BE]lieve, and just inexpensive enough that I couldn’t have been happier with them. I’ll admit, I struggled with not wearing combat boots, or even more grunge, yellow work-boots. Anyone else recall when those were popular, even for girls?! hahaha Still, I refrained from the boots and went with these funky cool wedge shoes with little wing accents. Last but not least, I am completely in love with one of the latest manicure/pedicure sets from Nail Me! For a limited time these uber cute and pretty nail appliers called “Faery Wings” are on sale for $50 lindens. They are fun and colorful, and if you’re like me, you’ll wear them with everything! I’m not altogether certain my outfit matches, but what I do know is that I love it! It reminds me of a fun time in my own life. I would have worn this as a teenager, and if I thought for a minute I could pull it off, I might wear it still! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

*Also, just a little tip, HollyHood is having a 50% of sale that ends August 3oth! So if there is a pair of shoes you’ve been wanting, now is the time to get them! Or, if you’re just a shoe addict like I am, it’s a good time to feed the addiction! :D

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 26.

The Splash of Color Hunt started this past week and rocketed right to the number one spot for a while (now at number 2). I did the Fairy Tale Hunt and Anarchy Hunt along with my partner and aside for the usually little glitches (stores out of business and such) I can personally vouch for the fact that these are well-run hunts. I’m sure you can find a hunt to suit your fancy. Enjoy!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Hello everyone! Today Im letting Mr0mizu show you some more things from The Blues Hunt which is a hunt geared towards the males of SL. There are some really great prizes on this hunt for you to find so its definately worth doing! All prizes are L$5 to purchase and the hunt ends on the 31st August so there is still around a week left to complete it. There are 50 stores to search and you are searching for a little cylinder shaped object with a blue top.

You can see some of the other hunt items that have been previously blogged here!

If you are looking for great new hair, then be sure to pick up the Miles Hair by Damselfly. It comes with a HUD so you can change through the pack of natural shades that are included with the prize! The Bootcamp Training Jacket & Ribcage V Neck Tee by Goth1c0 is a great two piece set. You can wear the jacket and shirt together or seperately which makes it really versatile.

There are several different tops and tee’s you can find on the hunt, here are a few of them but there are more! The Eleven Polo by Twenty13 is on the left with the purple mens Shirt & Vest one piece by Citrus in the middle. Lastly there is the fun Mousys Tank Shirt by sYs Design on the right which allows a better view of the Mazie Tattoo by Reckless which is also another prize on the hunt!

Blue Couture served up on a Silver Platter!

Hiii everybody!! It is a beautiful day in my neck of the woods, although many around me would say it is too cold. I, personally, love a good chill to the air. I was so excited to have to put on a jacket today. In honour of this glorious day, I wanted to do a post about a dress that I find equally as glorious :)

leaning1

I have already shown you a few of the hunt prizes from The Silver Platter Hunt HERE, with Shamic, so I thought I would show you another one today. This time, the prize is from Blue Couture, and I am doing this one sans-Shamic, because there is only a female gift available. But what a female gift it is! So much so, I purposefully started that last sentence with ‘but’, even though that is a grammar no-no :P Seriously though, the BLUE COUTURE MELODY SET , which includes the gown, matching necklace and earrings, a hip-hugger belt, and a pair of SLink high feet shoes, is so pretty! There is also a cute little clutch purse as well, but I forgot to put it on…d’oh! Check out the back on this dress…so sexy, it shows off my tattoo perfectly! The dress and shoes are rigged mesh, with the dress being available in the standard sizes, and the belt and jewelry are scripted for size adjustment. So, as long as you are willing to do a little hunting, you can get this package for L$1, or, if you just want to get in and get out, find the hunt sign, and you can get the prize for L$25. I love options! The HINT:We love Manga dolls !!

With the gorgeous colouring of this outfit, I needed equally gorgeous nail polish. Now I know many of us FabFree bloggers have shown off quite a few of the beauty by alaskametro SLink mani and pedi huds here already, but so far, no one has shown the turquoise version. So, I thought I would :) For a minimal L$10 on the Marketplace, you too can have nails that match the Melody dress perfectly! I have included the ad picture below so that you can see all the variations on this colour that are in the hud.

*sighs* Alright, I think it time for me to venture back into my RL for now, my dog thinks we need to take advantage of the sunshine and head out to a dog park. Frankly, I agree! So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

SLiving Vicariously

Snapshot_005Hello Fabulouses! The long awaited weekend is finally here, YAY!  Now… if only the RL rain would quit, I (the real me) could enjoy it as much as Love Trill is in her cute beachy summerwear.  I will have to SLive vicariously through her today and soak up some virtual sun and sand :).

Love’s outfit today consists of some newer lucky board prizes that are available at SMC.  I was lucky enough to snag the Bustier Top in Red, the Denim Shorts (which have great detailing on the back pockets – shoulda done a butt shot, sorry!), and the fun Swim Rings too.  The Swim Rings come in two versions… One to wear over your shoulder and one around your waist – I have edited the placement of the shoulder ring to work with this pose.  There is no need to join a group to play the lucky boards at SMC, although it’s a good idea so that you can become alerted of news and offers.

My Strawberry Necklace can be found as a free gift at 1005 , and the Annie Sandals for the Slink flat feet (previously shown by Calleja [HERE]), are still available at Pure Poison as a free group gift (free to join).

Happy Weekend Everyone! I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love the country, though admittedly I’m kinda torn at times. One of the things however that do very much enjoy about country life is the atmosphere. Life is more casual, sometimes it even seems that time it’s self moves at a slower, comfortable pace. The skies seem enormous, and there is a communion with nature that just doesn’t happen in the big city. Considering my conflicting adoration of both country and city life, my wardrobe can sometimes be a mishmash of both worlds. Still, I think I somehow manage to make it work!  I believe this outfit fits into that idea quite well. There’s a little bit of country, with the denim jumper and hair scarf, but I’ve got my city-girl heels on, my makeup is a little bit wild, and my toenails and fingernails are freshly manicured!

Where did I find this stuff you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, just like I’m conflicted about the country versus the city, I’m conflicted about where I like to shop! It seems lately I have an events addiction, and with so many good ones going on, who wouldn’t?! My first stop was The Wild West Fair where I picked up my shoes, my perfect manicure by ZOZ, and this awesome pose by Something New complete with horse and apple! Next I meandered through the N21 event, and while there bagged my hairdo and this adorable necklace. The necklace is by AMAYA and there are several versions with one-word sayings like “Yes” or “Adored”. Mine says “Kiss”, and I think that’s super sweet! My skin is one Love told me about, it’s the current Group Gift at Genesis. I’m so glad she did, it’s just different enough to really be my style! This lovely skin from Genesis has some vampy lipstick and shimmery gold eye-shadow. It also includes appliers for Slink hands and feet as well as Lolas Tango, and Phat/Cute Azz.  Wanting a little extra color in my eye-makeup, I went with something a little different and got this under-eye liner at La Petite Morte! It comes in a fatpack with several different color options, and the basic black. As for my jumper, I found it on the Marketplace!  I sincerely hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
