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.

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 😛 . 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, although it does ask you for L$1, don’t worry, it’s refunded. 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!

5000 Thanks yous

loft_001

I took a break from organizing and photographing the ginormous Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds to run around a bit… play some lucky boards, catch up on the group gifts.  No luck on the lucky boards but I did find a new handbag at S@bbia on the group board. The bag comes with a color changer for four wardrobe choices. Score!

Now I have a new handbag… I need a new outfit to go with it, right?  I popped over to Prism and found just the thing.  This perfect-for-Fall sweater, skirt and leggings combo is up at Prism as a free 5000 Thank you gift to the Group members! Prism’s Group, it is free to join and the gifts are left up for a generous length of time. You can still grab the multiple sets back in the group gifts area. Plus, Prism has several Hunts running AND has an extensive Discount area.
Hope you Fab Folks are having a great Saturday!

There are so many ways this could be worn as it will suit many looks. I decided to team it with the Ride Jacket by Colors World Store which is another group gift that is great for the wintery months. There is also a male version available so take your guy friends! The Skinny jeans are a long term freebie from COCO that are always great to have as a staple wardrobe item. These were previously shown here. Finally the amazing Hotrod Unisex Boots by Lavarock Creations are their newest group gift and have both male and female versions included!

Frogstar is letting me do my nails!

Well howdy all! Yayy, it’s the weekend, are you all as happy about that as I am? It’s not like I have things planned, but let me tell you, it sure will be nice to not get dressed at all today if I don’t want to 😛 . I think it seems like a good lounge around kind of day…how ’bout you?

seating1

So, I decided to set up a little lounge area for myself, and each piece is courteousy of Frogstar, and is either free, or only L$1! I’ll start with the bench I am laying on. The Frogstar – Royal Reading Bench VIP Gift is one of the many free gifts you receive after hitting the subscribo board, and it has loads of poses to choose from, including, as the name suggests, many reading poses to be used with a book, that is provided from the bench. The colouring of this bench is actually a little brighter than what you see in my picture, but I tinted it darker to match the other pieces I picked up.  Those other pieces are the lovely Frogstar – Give Thanks End Table, and the Frogstar – Paper Garlands (Frog Prince). These are located right beside the store entrance, along with many other dollarbies.

Now, while I could be reading, since I am on a reading bench, one of the other things I enjoy on lazy days, is doing my nails. In SL, though, you don’t have to do them, someone else already has! LOL. So I wanted to show off a freebie set of nail appliers, from La Boheme, that is only available until the end of November 23rd. The La Boheme Freebie: Morocco Double Set comes with both SLink hands and feet nails appliers, in a gold version and a silver version. I loved the rich colour of the purple, so I had to go with that, but I’ve included a shot of the vendor picture for you all to see the colour choices available.

I have to admit, I have yet to go to bed. So I think I am going to head there now, good thing SL nail polish isn’t wet, or my nails would be ruined. LOL. Until next time, have a good evening/morning, and TTFN!
