Please Come Home for Christmas

Haven't thought of a title yet

I’m just hangin’ out at the train station, waiting for my baby to arrive…

Ok, not really. But I am hanging out at the train station of the new Holiday Trace sim just because it’s so pretty and a great place to take photos. You really should pay it a visit, if only to enjoy a peaceful walk in the snow. 🙂

Yes, all this is free.

So, today I’m sharing this COMPLETE OUTFIT from Giulia Design.

The Renata outfit is a gift for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News in-world group (free to join). It comes with everything you see here: the sweater dress and scarf, tights, boots, and a handbag.

  • The dress and scarf are one piece and come in sizes XXS-L and Fitmesh with an alpha.
  • The tights come with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a clothing layer for classic avatars.
  • The boots come in XXS-L with an alpha, as well as for Slink feet (I’m wearing M with my Maitreya feet removed).
  • The handbag is one size, but you can modify the size with a right-click > edit > stretch.

The textures of this outfit are nicely done. I think the muted colors are a classy look for winter.

And I love handbags. 🙂

Ok… off to do more shopping. Or maybe I’ll just ride around on the train for a while.

Pre-Emptive Strike

Pre-Emptive Strike

The holidays are creeping up, and you know what that means…a lot of scrumptious food is on the way!  If I want to eat all the deliciousness, then there’s only one thing to do – work it out!

Hot Top

To avoid getting all gross while I run, I found this top that will do the trick to keep me feeling cool!  The Sanie top from Scandalize is a group gift and comes in a fatpack of colours.  I used it as a workout top, but it could be used for a whole bunch of different looks!  The Scandalize group is 100L to join, and if you’ve been following any of Love’s posts for the last while, you’ll know there are loads of free gifts to be had at Scandalize.

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Leggings for Days

Perfect for a good workout session, the Acid Wash pants from Apple May Designs give a well-needed dose of style and function.  I found the leggings on the lucky boards, and with a bit of time and patience, finally they were mine! There is a pink version included as well, so try your luck and they can also be yours!  The Apple May Designs group has a join fee of 25L, and there is a group gift up on the wall you can snap up at the same time.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

Well…off I go! Can you keep up?

The Importance of Calling “Dibs”

11-30-207

Dibs – Plural noun  \ ˈdibz \  

The most powerful force  in the universe, “dibs” is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. “Dibs” is a time honored tradition to all, except one… I saw the “Prenzlau” Armchair & Side Table by Kusshon as I was looking at the previews of the Peace on Earth Hunt and I immediately called “dibs”. She looked at me as if I was speaking in a foreign language (which, technically, I was because she uses too many vowels in her words). I found the definition and pasted it into chat. It was like she couldn’t read it. She then rezzed the chair and said “Oh, do you mean THIS chair?” It’s funny how she remembers the story differently [HERE]. (Ok, the part about watching pretty blondes in spandex and capes was true) It was at that point I knew for certain that she either doesn’t understand “dibs” or just completely ignored it. My money is on ignoring me as she does that most the time anyhow…

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post…

The cat doesn’t sit on his lap. He CHOOSES to sit under the feline. He doesn’t light a cigar. The cigar spontaneously lights as it touches his lips. He is the most interesting man in the world (who believes in “dibs”). And what does the most interesting man in the world wear? The Formal Men’s Suit by Wilson’s Designs as Part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. The hunt officially starts tomorrow and everyone is as excited as a child on Christmas Eve holding a plate of cookies for Santa. I’d call “dibs” on the plate of cookies, but I have a feeling I know how that would turn out…

Peace on Earth Hunt Preview: That’s My Chair

I have just one thing to say… “That’s my chair!”.

POEMYCHAIR

Here’s the story…

I was at home doing a little holiday decorating while he was sprawled out on the sofa watching Supergirl, half in and out of sleep.  I asked him if he wanted to help, but he declined with some kind of a completely committed head shake that oddly enough didn’t rattle his eyeballs off of the TV screen.  I really knew better than to try to compete with spandex and capes, but I thought I’d ask.

I continued on my merry way, humming jingle bells and rezzing out all of the holiday decor, and came across a really nice holiday printed chair by Kusshon for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  I rez it out with it’s cute little side table and before I could sit in it – HE yells “DIBS!” from the sofa.  Where did that even come from?  He was in “the dork zone”! “What?” I responded  and he says it again “DIBS!” as he flies across the room and sits in MY chair!  I nearly dropped my break-a-balls (that’s what I used to call the glass ball ornaments on the tree that I wasn’t allowed to place as a kid – Mom called them breakables but that’s not what my little ears heard and then it stuck).

This is really becoming a longer story than I wanted it to be, so here’s where it shortens up.  We fought furiously over the chair for 2 long days, until we realized that…  it’s copy and we can both have one. -.-  I rezzed one out for him too, but as you can see from the photo, he’s still a little grumpy-cat.  It will be a miracle if we can sit together in these chairs peacefully by Christmas Day.

Sass and Snowflakes

Warm Winter
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s nearly December?! It seems like just a little bit ago we were talking about Halloween and now Thanksgiving has come and gone. We have been having such mild weather where I live that it doesn’t feel like winter is on the way. I suppose that’s one of the fun things about Second Life, it can be any season you like at any time, and the weather never affects your wardrobe.

Sass

The cute knotted tank top Pru is wearing is a recent group gift at Sass. I love the silliness of the dancing/posing unicorn. Unicorns are always awesome anyway. This FREE group gift from Sass comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours head over to Sass and join the FREE-to-join in world group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There are quite a few group gifts up for grabs at Sass, so don’t miss out!

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya

Exxess

Speaking of cute and awesome, I think this hairstyle from Exxess definitely fits both categories. Not only is the snowflake headband super fun, it also has a color change hud with several preset colors to pick from. The hud also lets you change the color of the snowflakes and the band part of the headband separately. Also, this hairstyle from Exxess is animated! There is a “Breeze” version of this style that has a little movement to the hair which gives the illusion of wind. How do you get your copy of this playful winter hairstyle? You can get it on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. There are two color huds for the hair with tons of color options.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

My Heart Will Go On

Right Here Waiting...

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Since Ripley and I had such good luck with our last hunt (you can see my post {HERE}), we decided to hit the trail again.  We came away with this strappy beauty, which is a Sexy Christmas Hunt prize from Waffles.  In a rich shade of crimson, my Flame Crepe gown hugged all my curves and fell to ground level where it flared gracefully at my feet.   I felt so sleek and elegant in this frock!  It features a back that dips low, as well as a dramatic neckline, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The prize package, which costs only 1 little Linden dollar, includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up this dress for yourself, journey over to Waffles, and search for the red phrase “sexy” somewhere in the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Just Another “Dorky” Couples Christmas Card Pose

11-29-2017

Dorky is as Dorky Does…

I found this pose, “Merry Christmas” by Little Piggy, on the Marketplace for just 1L and I thought to myself that it would be a cute pose for my personal Christmas card. Yes, it is a couple’s pose, but I made it work for myself (and my snowman buddy, of course). She happened to see it and said “You should blog that. Everyone will be looking for a “dorky” couple’s Christmas card pose.” (Please note, that was her words, not mine). So she proceeds to hop on the other pose, changes her clothes to a more winter appropriate attire and waits for me to take the photograph. For it being a “dorky” pose, she was in a hurry to get in on the action….
