Socking It To Me

Snapshot_003I Don’t Understand

There is one thing about men that I will never understand… Actually there are several things, but one strikes me particularly hard today – Why oh why, do the socks go on the floor beside the laundry hamper?  I even moved the hamper where he was tossing them last week, thinking to myself “Ok…  if I can’t beat him, I need to join him“, but no…  The socks are still beside…  the…  laundry … hamper.

I am considering that perhaps there is some kind of negative magnetic force that keeps them from going inside the basket.  What else could it possibly be?  I am reading up on the subject…  “How To Understand Him”.  Wish me luck.

At Least One Thing Was Clear

One thing that was really clear to me today was that I was really glad I picked up the Zenovia Outfit as a free group gift at MonaLISA.  I joined this group for 100L some time in December to take advantage of a lucky board prize [blogged here] that is still available, and stopped in today to check out what was available in the way of group offers.  There are tons of group gifts, a midnight mania board, and a few group lucky boards too.

The Zenovia Outfit all goes on in one click and includes the skirt, top, and cardigan.  It comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the alphas in the case that you need them.

Like My Hair?

I think I jumped up and down when I saw that Truth was participating in this new round of The Epiphany with three gorgeous long hairstyles at just 50L per play!  I am wearing Wind today, and can’t wait to get my hands on the other two as well!  All of the braids and waves are done perfectly.

Some Things are Better Left Unsaid

ALB NEW YEARs EVE suit 2016 & shoes & fur & cap by AnaLee Balut

I feel like I could run away…

Swanky event… Soft music… Dancing slow and close together… Dressed in style… one too many drinks from the top shelf…

The words come out of your mouth before you have a chance to think about what you just said. You can hear the imaginary needle scratching across the vinyl  record as everything slows to a screeching halt.  The long awkward silence that follows… She recovers from your revelation with the grace and dignity that she is so well known for, but you just can’t hide the embarrassment on your face. You excuse yourself for some fresh air. You wonder to yourself how you could have been so imprudent as to let your true feelings known…

I’m dealing with a force that’s so strong…

While I’m out here coping with this awkward situation, let me tell you about my latest group gift find from ALB Dream Fashion. The FREE New Years Eve Suit 2016 is a stylish white suit that comes with some great and unusual accessories. Included in this package are a pair of White Mesh Shoes and a resizable cap (if you have unruly hair like me). It also comes with a fur stole to keep your shoulders warm on those chilly winter nights.

She comes outside, takes your hand, places a soft kiss on your lips, then whispers in your ear … ” Let’s go back inside where it’s warm…”

Telephone 

Modulus - Riano Jacket

I call you one the telephone…

Some days are just crazy, the phone doesn’t stop ringing, the emails are plentiful and the texts are nonstop.  But,  even though my days seem crazy I make sure to take time to communicate with those around me that matter, even if it’s just something silly to let them know I’m thinking of them.

 But you’re never home…

As I was touring the Ultra Event, (happening between now and February 15th)  I came across a FREE gift at the Modulus display. The brown Riano Jacket is FREE for members of the Ultra Event Group. The group is FREE to join, do there’s really not an excuse to grab it up.

I gotta get a message to you…

I’m all about wearing winter scarves, so I’m still wearing the FREE scarf I received from (red)sand as part of the free group gift for reaching 5000 members that I previously showed [HERE].  Hold on, I have another call… “Hello… What? Ok, Ok , I’ll stop and pick up milk on the way home…”

Stood Up

Waiting_001

Stood up.

He said we had a date, and I was all decked out. Dressed to the nines. Fit to kill. You know how it goes. You find just the gown at ALB that can’t be passed up, especially since it’s free. I opted out of the full skirt and kept it simple, going only for the slinky white part with the draping back and the low cut neckline and then I waited at the door but he never showed up. It’s a good thing the dress didn’t cost me anything… or I might have more in the way of revenge than just petty aggravation on my mind.

Of course if you have an upcoming date, you can get this dress too… and it comes in all the right sizes: fitmesh XS – XL as well as Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

Pairing things up.

I had a flair for dramatics. (So does he… I’m sure he’ll have some excuse.) So I added this jewelry from Lazuri to my dress. It’s the current group gift out. I’m showing you the necklace and cuff bracelets, but there were also rings and earrings too. They are even color change, with a choice of silver or gold metal and an ability to change the color of the pearls as well. Lazuri frequently sets out large sets of color change gifts, so though the group fee is 250L, it means a lot of jewelry for your group fee.

I wonder if he’ll show up late to pay the ticket for the bottle of wine I ordered…

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!  She …  Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting fun.  My shooting aim of course is horrible…  The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun…  If I am aiming at them, they are pretty safe.  It’s the ambulance windshield right next to him that needs to worry…  or the tree WAY over to the left.  It’s a good thing Carson just follows around behind me shooting them all dead.  Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…  but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!  The new 22 piece prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:  Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL  The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

She’s Like the Wind

(red)sand _5000 members gif male coat and scarf

Just a Fool to Believe…

I’ve had ’80’s movie soundtracks playing in my head all weekend…. (Thanks, Pru and Love   >.< ) And Dirty Dancing is one of my “compromise chick flick movies”.  I don’t mind cuddling up, watching Jennifer Grey (big time ’80’s crush) and singing along to the music. You can’t help but like this movie because we all know you don’t put Baby in the corner.

…I have Anything She Needs

Today’s gift is from (red)sand. For reaching 5000 members, they are celebrating by giving the members this FREE Coat and Scarf set. The mesh coat comes in the standard sizes XS-XL  and the scarf can be adjusted to get that perfect fit. the (red)sand group is FREE to join. Find the gift in the crate on the bottom shelf under the red slink sign. There’s also a special gift for the women!

Say Anything

Say Anything

 In your eyes, I am complete…

After seeing Pru getting Footloose and Love Dirty Dancing, I thought I’d play along with my take on Lloyd Dobler from one of the best movies of the 1980’s, Say Anything. This well known iconic pose of Lloyd holding his boombox (yeah, had one back in the day) above his head, belting out Peter Gabriel’s  In Your Eyes is one of movie’s most recognizable scenes. Lloyd found David’s Black Coat as the FREE prize on the Midnight Mania Board at Tiar.  He also picked up the FREE Group Gift Men’s Mesh Steel Blue Austin Tee by Cold Ash at their display at the Men Only District

When I want to run away, I drive off in my car…

I followed Pru and also played the gacha at [Since1975] and was lucky enough to get the rare BoomBox/C on my first try. (/me cracks his knuckles) My car, a Ferrari, (much better than Lloyd’s car in the movie) is a FREE gift at Sinsity Race Track. Take a spin around the track. It only takes 10 minutes.

♫ But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are… ♫

Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice – Simple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
