Aline in Paris

There are days where I feel oddly like a character in a TV show that wears one of those wonderful outfits that are completely impractical in RL.  For instance, have you been watching Emily in Paris?  I’ll forgive you if you haven’t – it’s one of those delightfully ridiculous romps filled with strange stereotypes…but if you can get past that and just enjoy it for the frivolity, then you can have a bit of fun.  Anyway, her outfits give me a bit of a pang of jealousy, but then I remember that my SL closet is just a bit more extensive than hers…

A Piece of The Pie

There are new lucky boards at Pink Cream Pie!  These boards never fail to delight me since they move so quickly, AND there are separate boards for letters and numbers, which is such a breath of fresh air.  There are five new pieces, including the lovely dress I’ve got on, each in several different colours in shiny, satin-like textures.  To take part, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L, and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are lots of gifts in this group, plus you get 100L of store credit every month.  Super worth it!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Hats Off to You

Fifty Linden Friday is in full swing, and I’m totally excited about this lovely hairstyle courtesy of Wasabi.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, plus several different colours for the beret.  Of course, FLF items usually disappear around midnight (sometimes you’ll find them a few days later, but it’s not guaranteed), so head on over ASAP to pick up this beauty for 50L.

Have a great weekend Fabbies!

Listening Party

Listening Party

Right, it’s time for a good old fashioned January music moment.  What’s that you ask?  Well, I have no idea.  But I’m putting on some cozy clothes and cranking the tunes and shutting out the chill winds outside.

Hats Off

There’s a new group gift at Yomi!  This long hair and warm hat is perfect for the winter months.  You don’t want your ears to get cold, now do you?  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, as well as an HUD to change the colour of the hat and the furry bit on it.  The Yomi group is currently 100L to join, but you’ll get several hairstyles out of the join as well as some accessories, so totally worth it.

And Some Tunes

Muddy’s Music Café is one of the more popular dance destinations in SL, and always a nice way to spend some time when you’re inworld.  You’ll also find that it’s PG, so everyone can enjoy the welcoming atmosphere.  While you’re there, you can also pick up this free radio to take the Muddy’s stream with you wherever you go.  There are several different styles of radio in the box, so you’re sure to find something that goes with your décor.  You’ll find this free gift located just in front of the stage.  Cool!

Ok, let’s get moving to warm up!

Dude, Where’s My Horse??

ANgel Pink $30L Sat Chloe Jaguar

Whoooaaa! I was out riding the GI ranges this morning checking the fence lines. I popped off my trusty steed to check a suspicious hole and the dang horse ran off!! Now I have to clomp around in the snow & muck to locate him.

Just a Jaguar Cowgirl

What’s a girl to do when she wakes up Saturday morning and sees a cowgirl outfit on sale?  Especially when it comes in 3 different bright prints. You give a YEEHAWWW along with a yelping squeeee and run to grab it at Angel Pink. This is an entire outfit: dress, boots, and hat. There are 3 different textured dresses and each is $35L. I’m not sure why this item is listed in the $30L Saturday sale when it’s priced at $35L but I won’t quibble over $5L. This is such a great deal.

You’ll the sexiest cowgirl boss in the land wearing this dress full of cutouts, little ties, & a belt. Imo, this would flatter anyone’s figure.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG

Hope your weekend is FAB!

Wintry Sparkles

Pink Cream Pie January GG

Hey Fabbies!

‘Tis just me again with more group gift finds.  I can’t say enough how much I *love* Pink Cream Pie.  She just feeds into my obsessions like pink… and unicorns!  So, how can a girl resist?!

However today I have neither pink, nor unicorns to show you (maybe next time, hm?), but I do have this free adorbs sparkly dress.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there are a load of group gifts up for your perusal.  This just happens to be the newest one.  It comes with a limited HUD (can change color of straps and undies) and it fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

My cute hair is a free gift from No.Match on the Cosmopolitan Christmas tree, which is free but you have to join the Cosmo group, which is also free.  It is still up with loads of gifties as of this post, but I don’t know how long it will be up, so I would hurry on this one if I were you!

I know this is painfully short….  I haven’t had my quota of caffeine for the day yet!  Stay warm gang!!!  Only another 75 days until Spring!

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!

Grandma’s been staring through the window ever since it started to snow…
If it gets any worse I’ll have to let her in.

Hey Gang!

Yeah I’m starting off with a bad snow joke, and that’s snow joke!  So Jacx was talking about a snowball fight the other day in her post and I’ve decided to take her up on her offer.  I’m not sure she knows what she has gotten herself into though.  I am *very* competitive!  I also have the same set of poses from Fashiowl from Shop & Hop (free), so I am armed and ready to go too!  (I can’t throw snowballs without arms, you know!)

I’ve put together an eclectic combo of an outfit for the fight, me and cold aren’t the best of buddies (despite my Elsa obsession!), and so whatever I can throw together that keeps me warmest, gosh-darnit, that’s what I’m gonna wear when it’s cold!

Freebies, Freebies and More Freebies! (and maybe a couple of great deals for good measure!)

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the free mesh heads from Lelutka this past week, I have the *worst* luck trying to get into crowded places like that and I feel like I am always the last to grab anything that there is a big rush for.  Nonetheless, I am sporting the brand spankin’ new Kaya head which is a free group gift (free group join) from Lelutka.  (There’s one for the guys as well!)  My skin is also a freebie, it is a group gift from Koonz.  Their group is free to join.

Usually I use my own shape, but I really liked the free shape for Kaya by Wren’s Nest.  It is a free group gift and the group is temporarily free to join.  Her shapes are really nice.

This awesome Santa style jacket is from Gabriel and you can get it for men and women both at their store for only 50L.  It’s super warm for snowball fights too!  For women this fits Maitreya and Legacy.  It does come with the option of a shirt underneath too.

I am absolutely enamored with my fluffy boots, they are from Gild at The Arcade.  They have all the colors you can wish for of fur boots and the machine is 50L a play.  They have them for both men and women.

Finally, my hair and hat is a Fifty Lindens Friday pick from Wasabi, I just checked and she still has it up, but not sure how long it will be up for!

It’s Snowing!

It's Snowing!

It’s snowing!  Once in a while I find a spot inworld that has very peaceful snow falling and some twinkling lights, and suddenly I feel all peaceful and relaxed!  Just such a blanket of calming snow covers the It’s Snowing sim, so it’s quite fun to explore.  Do check it out!

Up Top

Right, who here is in the mood for some free hair?  Oh really?  That many of you?  Oh alright then, I’ll tell you how to grab this really cool fatpack of hair PLUS hat from Doe!  If you join their free group, you’ll find a little display outside of the front of the store with the Light Up My Christmas hair.  Pay 100L for it, and it will be immediately refunded if you’re wearing the Doe group tag.  (Make sure you have it active!).   Not sure how long this one will be out, so head on over!

Still Hopping

Shop and Hop rages on, and this amazing sweater from Tetra has been in all my feeds all over the place.  I’ve seen so many bloggers and photographers donning it.  With good reason – it’s completely lovely.  So realistic, and completely jolly.  It comes in two versions, a loose waist to go over pants and a tighter one for leggings etc.  No need to join a group here, just grab it for free at the Tetra booth at Shop & Hop.

Snowball Fight

Snowball Fight
Hiya more shopping & hopping. With the holidays and so many events, advents, sales, and gifts to pick up. I am sure you are like me and just rushed off your feet. So will try to be brief 🙂

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Jacx is a silly girl today running around outside in the falling snow without a coat on. But the snow was just so perfect, the wet kind that makes snow angels and snowballs the best. And to prove just how awesome snowballs are, getting in a snowball fight and just daring the other person to hit her square in the face. Oh my! LOL. Every time I look at this picture reminds me of that Pat Benatar song “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” And I crack up laughing. However, I digress. Jacx is modeling the Neve Merry dress free from Shop&Hop, cute as a bug, 1 piece outfit that looks like a turtleneck sweater with 3/4 sleeves, plaid jumper set in a rich warm reddish-brown color, included is a 4 color hud to change the turtleneck, 8 colors to change the metals. You can acquire this lovely free outfit by popping over to Neve at Shop & Hop. Keeping with the spirit of the season Jacx has topped the outfit with MOoH Christmas Hat from day 9 of the advent calendar. Color choices with the hat hud are red, green, white, and blue. MOoH’s group is required for the advent, the joining fee is 100L, or you can pick up this past gift for 25L.
