Celebrating April!

3.28.21 wp_031

Hey Gang!

Its a new month and you know what that means!  It’s time to see what we celebrate in April (aside from Easter, of course) Let’s have a look-see….

Today, of course is April Fools’ Day, so watch out for those pranksters!  I used to be one of those pranksters but everyone knows me too well and they know I will be up to no good! So, no fun for me cause everyone is all waiting for me to pull a prank.  Alas.  Now, of course it’s not *only* April Fools Day (and they put April at the beginning of it, like every month has it’s own fools day and we need to distinguish.  the heck??), but also National Burrito Day and National One Cent Day.   I think Taco Bell should jump on this one and sell one cent burritos all day today.

Now for the rest of the month….

2. Good Friday, nice normal Holiday, also World Autism Day.

3. National Find a Rainbow Day (that’s a nice one!) and World Party Day.  Especially for those who went in search of said rainbow and actually found one!  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be able to stand in the rainbow colors so I would get on my bike and chase after the rainbow, trying to find the part where it met the earth (I didn’t care about the pot of gold.  Silly little me!), I wanted to bask in those colors up close!  I don’t need to tell you this story does not end in World Party Day for yours truly!

4. Happy Hoppy Easter!  And apparently, for the Easter Bunnies to celebrate, it is also National Carrot Day (who did that???).  I kid you not.  That’s not all.  It is also National Hug a News Person Day and National Tell a Lie Day.  Do we really need that last one?  And no, it is not an excuse to get together with family (wear a mask and stay safe folks!) and tell them all sorts of lies about your life.   Not a good holiday custom for anyone.

5. Now being the Trekkie I am, I know this is First Contact Day.  I was disappointed that it was not listed.  I guess that’s the Universe paying me back for how long it took me to understand why May 4th was Star Wars day.   Today is also, strangely enough…. National Flash Drive Day.  Why little bitty flash drives would get their own day is beyond me.  Maybe it doesn’t mean them at all, maybe it means we need to drive around in our cars and flash people!  Woohoo!  Happy National Flash Drive day!  *giggle*

6. Happy New Beer’s Eve!  Who knew that was a thing!  *Why* is it a thing?  Go on and read the 7th.

7. Happy National Beer Day (this is why).  Today is also No Housework Day (well if you are drinking beer all day to celebrate, I suppose that is understandable.).  It is also World Health Day, which I don’t think ties in with the beer thing very well.  You certainly can’t celebrate both.

9. National Name Yourself Day (that’s fun!), and also National Unicorn Day!  I need to start celebrating both of these! (I luurrrrveee Unicorns!)

10. National Hug Your Dog Day.  Hopefully people don’t need a holiday to give their dog hugs.  Mine always get a bazillion hugs every single day.  So much so that they get sick of me I think.

13.  National Be Kind to Lawyers Day.  Um, ok.

15. National High Five Day!  High five everyone you know!  and people you don’t!  Oh wait, the pandemic.  Substitute high fives for fist or elbow bumps and then get away from each other, pronto and wash.  That takes the fun out of that.  Thanks pandemic!  Sigh.

17. International Bat Appreciation Day.  I think this means the animals and not the baseball kind.    ‘Tis also International Haiku Poetry Day and National Cheese Ball Day!  So show your favorite bat some appreciation, while reading him/her a Haiku you wrote for them and sharing in a delicious snack of cheese balls.

Oh little Bat
Munching on a Cheese Ball
How I do adore Thee

24. National Pigs in a Blanket Day (Yum!  No I am not going to make a joke about little piggies all snuggled on a chilly spring night under a blanket together and how cute they must be!) and National Skipping Day!  While eating your little piggie in a blanket, I am guessing.  That combination sounds like a happy hobby.  Could be fattening too eating all those piggies in blankets, but do you suppose the skipping burns the calories off?

30. National Bubble Tea Day (I had to google this, it sounded so good and I guess I am behind the times cause everyone but me knows about this.  I plan to try some in rl soonly!) and we end the month with bubble tea aaaaaand…. National Hairball Day!  I wonder how people celebrate that last one?  With lots of catnip?

This all makes me realize one thing, humans are CRAZYYYY!

Oh and I did come in here to tell you about a freebie.  This comes from Shanti, via Ajuda Brazil.  It fits BOM and classic avatars (I’m getting away with it using BOM on my Maitreya Body).  There is a whole wall of Shanti freebies there, some more for classic bodies and some for mesh bodies too!  There are several floors of freebies there, so you definitely want to check it out!

This is enough blather from me for one post.  I’m off to the beach next time!

Peace & Pot Pies,

Zephyr

Zephyr

I was looking at paintings and got all inspired (again) by Botticelli and his personification of the wind.  If you look at the quite lovely Allegory of Spring, you’ll find a little blue fellow blowing in the warm winds of Spring.  Today, I’m channeling the soft breezes of Springtime and all their glory.

Hunt it Out

I mentioned yesterday that there’s a hunt going on at the Cies Island sim, with several stores participating with free gifts hidden in little pastel eggs all over the place.  Today, I’m showing you one of the free items I picked up at Blackjack!  This dress and fur stole are, as I mentioned, completely free and quite lovely.  The deep green is making me think of rolling green lawns and the fur will surely keep me warm until it gets just a bit hotter out!  You’ve got until April 11th to take part in this fun hunt.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Cheers to the West wind!

Hurry Up

Hurry Up

Soooo as ya’ll know… I’m kinda slow on the uptake sometimes. I tend to just drift along not paying a whole lot of attention. Which means I miss things when they first appear on the scene. It’s a quirk… not a flaw… right?  Anyway, it means I missed this sexy little halter top when it first came out as the Fabulously Free Group gift way back in June. Yeah… June. But as I was perusing the Gift page I saw it and got all excited because I get to show it now with our temps warming and Spring blooming and a certain elf’s thoughts are starting to to turn beach-ward.

This is the “Lisa” loose halter top from Fatal Fashion and you can pick up this beauty for free when you wear your FabFree Group Tag. And of course the FabFree Group is free to join! I love the chain details that set this top apart from most halter tops. A little bling goes a long way.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

While you’re at Fatal Fashion picking up your halter top, check out all the other group gifts and you’ll find my new denim shorts. The “Ripped Jeans shorts” will only cost you 0L to pick up too. Just join the free group Avangardista to grab them.  Avangardista is another freebies, Group gifts, sales and promos group much like Teleport HUB or SLF&O. And anything that helps us find those goodies is a good find, right?

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

FabFree Mesh Body Feature: The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

FabFree Mesh Body Feature: The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

Top of the morning to you, FabFree! I hereby introduce the first FabFree Mesh Body Feature post. Today I will be sharing the Ultra Vixen Busty mesh body made by Ultra Vixen, one of our lovely FabFree designers. This body is one of the free mesh bodies that are available to learn about on the Fab Free Mesh Bodies and Heads listing. Please check out our listing to learn about more free mesh bodies and heads! Be sure to also check out the FabFree ’30 days’ list to find all the amazing offers new residents have access to when they join SL, as I am showing a freebie from that list today.

The Ultra Vixen Busty Mesh Body

Today I am wearing the Ultra Vixen Busty body by Ultra Vixen. This body is free for all Second Life residents under 31 days old, and it is a fully functional, BOM enabled mesh body. The freebie is the full package with all the latest updates for the body. Make sure that you tell any newbies about this offer in case they are in need of a mesh body!

The Ultra Vixen Busty body also includes a mesh head which is designed after the original classic head, but more detailed and fully Bento, allowing residents to retain their original “classic” look. You can also add different heads to the body. I added an older head gift by Akeruka Creations (no longer available) and I popped on a free choker which is a free gift for all at Osmia.

Ultra Vixen - Free For Newbies - Poster

What can I wear with the Ultra Vixen Busty?

The free Ultra Vixen body wears custom mesh clothes that are sized for Ultra Vixen Busty. I decided to pair the body with the free jeans that are the current FabFree group gift at Ultra Vixen. I love the little FabFree logo on the butt! Go FabFree!

Sizes included

  • Ultra Vixen Busty
  • Ultra Vixen Perky
  • Ultra Vixen Flat Chested

The freebie body is also fully BOM, so bakes on mesh tops, undies, other clothing, skins, makeup, and tattoos can be worn with it as well. I threw on a lovely top by Mishmash Fusion, which I won for free on their lucky chairs, which are free to play without a group join. This lovely top is BOM/system layers so it can be worn on any bakes on mesh enabled mesh body or on system avatars as well! Mishmash Fusion has a huge selection of BOM and system clothing available on their lucky chairs, as well as mesh clothing items for men and women.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bad to the Bone

spring_009

Hey gang!

Easter time and spring conjure up all sorts of bunny-ness.  But I feel we tend to overlook the bad bunnies of the world.  Those cute, but very bad bunnies deserve their time in the spotlight as well, and so I bring to you a free goodie straight from The Free Dove, courtesy of Zoom.  This cute cropped Bad Bunny sweater is so cute and stylish, I’ve paired it with pants, but I bet it would be super cute with just about anything.  Skirt, shorts, even a sexy pair of undies (bad bunny says rawr!).  Speaking of these pants, they are *another* freebie, this time courtesy of Eternity via Ajuda Brazil.  Gone are the days, back in my noob time (eons ago!  lol) when freebies, well, you knew they were freebies.  They *looked* like freebies.  Nowadays, the freebies rival and sometimes surpass the clothes you shell out your lindens for!  So in sl, you can’t always say “you get what you pay for!” as it’s just not always the case!  So many designers are generous and they share some amazing work in their giveaways!  Props to them!  (and I never say props.  lol)

Now for the practical part of our program.  The shirt fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

and the pants fit:

  • Classic
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

They also come with a 20 color HUD so these pants can match everything in your sl closet.  Yowza!

I’ve got soooooo much stuff for you gang!  So I’ll wrap this up here so I can go work on more!  Yay!

Your favorite Blonde Blogger (show me some luv!),

Modern Spring Goddess

Modern Spring Goddess

It’s time to bask in the magic of Springtime delights, my dear readers!  That means find a cute dress, hop on the bicycle, get something tasty and hang out in a park.  I can’t possibly think of what I’d rather be doing in this lovely weather that happens to have appeared in my part of the world, so it’s time to take advantage.

Yummy and Plummy

I headed over to Shanti for this sweet dress.  It’s all sorts of Spring magic to me – the boho feel, the purple tones… love it!  To get yours, just join the Shanti group for 50L and click on the gift box.  You’ll find a few other sweet gifts there too, so don’t miss out on them!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Clutter my Life

You may or may not have heard, but there’s a super fun Easter egg hunt going on at the Cies Island sim.  Most of the stores are participating, and my first stop was Tentacio.  I have always adored their penchant for fun and sweet clutter.  My inventory is pretty full of their awesome creations!  You can get all sorts of goodies there by clicking on the pastel eggs hiding around the store.  I got the shoes, drink, bicycle and clutter you see on the ground there, all for free!  There are piles of other free gifts in the boxes too, so you’re sure to find something you love.

The Cies Island egg hunt is running until April 11th!
