Atom Bomb Baby

Atomic_001

I almost missed out on telling all you Fabulous readers about the Sn@tch 10th Anniversary Sale & Specials! It ends July 19th, so you still have a couple of days, and you don’t want to miss out! In addition to lots of extra ways to win free clothes, almost everything in the store (this does not include new releases, marketplace, or gift cards) is 50 – 75% off!

A Lucky, Unlucky Dip!

Extra prize winning machines have been set out at Sn@tch for this special week, including an Unlucky Dip… except that it’s lucky! It gives out a prize every single time!

I took a dive and came up with a free Sn@tch Skybox of Evil! This skybox is a Gothic skybox and is full-size and simply amazing. It even included decorating accessories such as a bed, candelabras, rugs, and a plant. The skybox itself was 81 prim, but for such a roomy and well textured skybox, that’s not bad! I took my picture in front of the window of the skybox… which was my favorite part!

New Lucky Letters!

Our wonderful Sn@tch creator has set out new Lucky Letter Board prizes and you can win lots of great prizes for free if your letter comes up! I won the Atom Bomb Baby Tank top for free when my letter came up! It comes in all the standard sizes, but I love that it is a fatpack of colors! You’ll have colors to match all your moods for free!

Matching pants!

Have you forgotten Sn@tch‘s new Freebie and Cheapie area? I had! I took a peak over there and snatched up these free Raji Floral leggings. These are mesh and come in all the standard sizes and for 0L I was able to get them in a fat-pack of colors. They matched my new free tank top too! I’m all set!

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.

Carson is wearing…

Shirt: Orchid  – Marcelo Graffiti Shirt (free group gift / $0L /$1L to join)
Pants: Wilson’s Designs  – FM – Dark blue Jeans  (Love Hunt – $1L)

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

Asian Wonders

Snapshot

The cute mini kimono I am wearing is FREE on the Living like japan hunt from Hapi*Rabi.  You are looking for a little pink origami bird and this store has been kind enough to put it right in plain site. While super easy to find you only have til the 15th so don’t delay. Snapshot

This lovely Chinese Court costume which includes the fan and head dress are FREE from JOMO on their lucky letter boards which does require you joining their FREE group.  The earrings are from Sigma Jewels FREE and another Living Like Japan hunt item (LLJH). Again an easy to find pink origami birds, simply follow the hints at the LLJH site, remember you only have til the 15th.

Snapshot

All of the very well detailed decor items and building in my pics today come from the JOMO Shops and they are all FREE. A bonus, all the items I am showing are low in prims.  There are so many FREE gifts throughout the shops on the sim you could be there an hour picking them up. I am featuring Asian items today but there are several non Asian FREEBIES as well. There are decor items, builds, clothes, costumes, skins and weapons. With so many choices there has to be something to tickle both girls and guys fancy so its well worth a trip over to JOMO to have a look around, remember there are FREE items to be found in all the shops with the bulk of them being in the FREE shop. If you want to score a few more gifts you can join the FREE group and play the lucky letter boards found in the room containing all FREEBIES. If you look at the ground as you arrive you will see an arrow pointing you to “buildings” if you take that path the freebie room is the 1st shop on your right, you will see the jars from picture 1 outside the shop.

Living C-Side

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses! If you are in the market for a new little house, you should check out the free gift that Greymoon Creations is offering at the landing point of their shop.  I was able to pick up the C-Side Home as shown in the photo for free!  I didn’t even have to join the group – although I did anyways (free to join) – because they have a group mini mania board as well with another build!

The C-Side House is 17/20 in size and has a land impact of 55 prims.  It features a livingroom area with fireplace, lots of windows and a separate bedroom with a door.  It is a very well made little home for your plot of land.

There are actually several gifts available including a waffle house lol, so flip through the option board to see all of them.

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!
