Young at heart

Snapshot

Here is a short post to let you know about a cute store I discovered here the other day. The store is called Kawaii Couture, and it is filled with these cute babydoll dresses, shoes and wonderful avatar accessories that resemble sweets of all kinds. Many items in the store are as inexpensive as 10 to 25L. This store is an awesome place for the young avatar, or especially the young at heart.

Outfit: Kawaii Couture – Cotton Candy Cutie (Grape) 25L

Skin: Belleza – Aiko

Hair: Exile – Stray Wishes

Eyes: IKON – Promise Eyes (Coffee)

Blogging soon!

With the Academy Awards coming up soon, I thought a trip down a red carpet might be fun. I’m all alone here at The Rose Theater, but that’s ok. It’s a gorgeous build, and I enjoyed wandering around in its opulence, pretending I had box seats to the ballet or the opera. :-)

::PurpleMoon Creations:: recently released this fabulous black and white gown as a gift to group members. It comes with an optional flexi skirt attachment, but I really like the simplicity of the tiered mesh skirt. My jewelry has previously been shown by Care: the necklace and earrings here, and the ring earlier today here. And you can still pick up this lovely handbag by {Junbug} at the Collabor88 sale price, but I’m sure today is the last day, since the collection will be changing tomorrow.

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. :-)

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! :-D

Winter Blues Be Gone!

Snapshot_001

I stopped in at the LIV-Glam Gifts Room the other day, and noticed that there was this amazing 2 piece beachy Tsubasa Outfit that would surely cure my longing for the hot sun on my skin, and the squidgy sand between my toes.  I popped on my group tag (which is 500L for new members) and picked it up for free!

These bright, tropical colours will have you out of a winter slump in no time!

LIVing Glam At SLebrity City

LIITALivGlam
If my first two posts on The Love Is In The Air Hunt at SLebrity City (here and here) were not enough to get you to go down there and hunt down those little red hearts, I have more to entice you with!  LIV-Glam has two gifts in the SLebrity City Love Is In The Air Hunt, both priced at 10L.  To the left you see me wearing the K Collection For Your Babies mesh dress, and to the right I am displaying the Rock Me Outfit that includes the shorts, bra and top.

Because Blondes Really Don’t Have More Fun!

Well, leave it to me to bring up the rear for the FabFree Photo Challenge (which ends today)! Better late than never, right? Actually, I think I was dragging my feet because I’m sooo embarrassed to show you my old avie pictures. But… since so many of you were brave and showed your “THEN” pictures, I figured I should pony up and do the same. No laughing, ok? Or at least, don’t laugh too loudly! :-P

Blogging Soon!

So yeah… that’s me when I first joined SL in 2010. I was a blonde, only because I’m a blonde in RL, and I thought the point of SL was that we make our avie’s look as much like our RL selves as possible. (HA! No idea where I got that idea.) I’m totally rockin’ the Linden Library hipster glasses… and see that shirt? I was so proud of myself for texturing it myself. Yikes! I wore that SAME OUTFIT for about a year and a half, until I found the Marketplace, and along with it, freebies and dollarbies. By then, I’d grown tired of being a blonde, and started wearing *B.D.R.* dollarbie hairs in the “majestic” color for several months (I have no idea where that red sweater came from, and clearly, I hadn’t found new skin or eyes yet). Shortly after that, I turned myself “ginger,” and the rest is history! :-D

As for my “NOW” picture, I’m wearing a skirt, sweater, and poncho set from Prim & Pixel. It’s not their newest group gift, but I really like the casual, boho feel of it, so I decided to show it anyway. Be sure you pick up the gift on the 2nd floor with all the other group gifts, as there is a non-gift version for sale on the 1st floor. My bracelet is a free gift from B!ASTA, and comes with 4 different gem colors. You’ll find the pink gift box on the front desk.

Be sure you check out the FabFree Photo Challenge Flickr group to see the rest of the fabulous entries! :-)

Club 108 Grand Opening

Snapshot_001

Club 108 is celebrating their grand opening, and with that they have a whole bunch of free gifts (26 to be exact!) from some very loved designers across the grid.  You’ll have to join the Club 108 group, but it’s free to join so it won’t hurt a bit.

Today I am showing off three of those gifts, but let me tell you the other 23 of them are just as fabulous!  I wish I had time to display them all here on FabFree for you.  The adorable outfit I am wearing is called The Pink City Outfit and is made by MoiMoi.  This gift includes the Mesh Emma Dress, Leo Shoes, Pink Leather Bag, Pink City Earrings & matching Ring as well as the tasty Frappucino.  Talk about an easy  outfit – I didn’t have to do any styling at all lol!

They are a little hard to see in my photos, but my fingernails are a cute shade of aqua and are courtesy of Action Nails who put up this gift at Club 108.  This gift comes with a prim nail option too if you are not a slink mesh hand wearer.

Snapshot_002

The beautiful Belleza skin I am wearing is also a Club 108 group gift that you can take advantage of after joining the free inworld group.  It didn’t come with any slink appliers, but the ones I had previously purchased at the mainstore worked great.

While you are down there, enjoy the tunes – and get your dance on!  Have fun  :)

Sn@tch Moving Sale

Snapshot_001

Hey Fabulouses!  It’s time to head to Sn@tch and pick up some fabulous deals!  Until February 2nd, Sn@tch is holding a moving sale in which you can find almost everything in the store priced at 50% – 75% off, as well as some items are marked with a “@” symbol and are hugely reduced!  I even spied some items marked at 0L, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I picked up a few things, but today…  I am sporting The Big Sister Set that includes the mesh Cricket Tulip Skirt in black and a fatpack of the Big Sister Crochet Halter that was marked with the “@” symbol and was 50L.  I am also wearing the Apnea Arm Tattoo which is currently 25L.

Have An Open Heart

Snapshot_001

Good news Fabulouses!  We made it through the  middle of the week :)  How’s that for an accomplishment? lol

I received a hot tip from FabFree Reader Piper Swords yesterday about a gorgeous group gift she thought you all might like to know about.  At Styles by Danielle, inworld group members can pick up the Estelle Christmas Jubilee Dress.  The group is 200L to join, and there are currently two gifts available.  The Estelle Christmas Jubilee Dress does come with a poinsettia adornment for the bodice, but since Christmas is over, I decided to just leave it off.  This partial mesh gown makes for smooth moves when dancing and I think could be used as a simple wedding gown too.

Thank you Piper for the heads up, and please do keep those tips coming – We appreciate them!

The Open Heart Necklace can be found in the Sweet Gift marketplace store, priced at 0L.

Talk about irresistibly cute! I came across this group gift sweater from NS:: and had to run right over and get it. Nothing brings out my inner 5 year old like cute outfits with cartoon animals on them!  These sweet sneakers are just icing on the cake, they are also available in the store for just 1L, along with a couple other awesomely cute dollarbies.

So cute!
