Gargoyle Queen

Hey fabbies,

I’ve been delving into the world of geneology in my real life.  Fascinating stuff, really.  Especially for a girl who was adopted and never knew her heritage growing up.  Turns out I am mostly British, Irish and Scottish (DNA), which may explain my love of castles.  Speaking of castles, check out my new buddy.  He may look scary but he is really just one of those gargoyles from Notre Dame voiced by Jason Alexander (You know, George from Seinfeld).  He says “Ooh La La“.  Still, you don’t meet a guy like him every day.

Ok for reals, this is another of those amazing pose props from Le Poppycock (75L a play Nextup!).  I tell ya’ she has got some mighty fun stuff.

My dress is a group gift from UNA that comes in a fatpack of colors as a free group gift.  The group there is 50L to join but she has a plethora of goodies for you on the wall for your small join fee.  This dress fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Ebody

Ah well, my eyes are mad at me for staring at this screen for far too long today, so I suppose it is time to come down from my belltower and post this.

Weekend on the French Riviera

french_007
Heyo Fabbies and happy weekend!  Or should I say Salut!  Ca va?

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring weekend.  I am out here just sipping some wine on the French Riviera where the Bohemian style is all the rage right now.  In fact, it is all the rage throughout Europe!  Just colors and frills and fun sexy outfits!  I think with all the war and pandemic and everything else, the mood of peace and love so exemplified by the Hippies back in the 60’s and since then is on everyone’s mind.  Mind?  I don’t mind, it’s my preferred style, bohemian gal that I am!  So when I saw the Saturday Sale and Belle Epoque, well, I just had to run down and grab it.  I want to be in style while I sip my wine like a fashionista!

The Saturday Sale

This is a bit time sensitive, so if you love this outfit and want to see all the colors it comes in for only 75L per color, you will need to hit Belle Epoque today.  I’m not sure how long they keep their Saturday Sales up for.  This outfit fits Maitreya and Legacy only but gosh all the colors are stunning.  I had a difficult time trying to choose and finally went with my signature pink.  I can’t go wrong with pink… ever.  lol

No group is needed to get the sale price, so run on over and style up!  I’m *so* glad I saw this and grabbed it.  I am absolutely in love!

My table, chair and wine (and pose) are another 75L Nextup from Le Poppycock.  I love that I can wear the props and they pose me and so I have no need to rez, so I can use them anyplace (like I did!  lol)!

Praying for Time

imagine_001

And it’s hard to love
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much, too much, too late
Well, maybe we should all be praying for time
Praying for Time – George Michael

Heya faboos!

Been hearing some horrible stories about war crimes being committed by the Russian armies and it just saddens me so much, how cruel we humans can be to one another.  We are supposed to be the most intelligent advanced species on the planet, but tell me, what other species is cruel to one another? Makes me question how intelligent and advanced we truly are.  So today I have donned my peace hat and am holding a light up in prayer, hoping for these atrocities to end.  It is the innocent who suffer in a war, and that is so wrong.

Meanwhile I’ve been working on this a bit longer than I would like, I’ve been under the weather but spent much of the last few days snuggled with the little man (Rocky, my Chi) and sleeping/watching tv and I have a bit more energy so I am tackling this again.

Let’s do this!

My super cute and bohemian peace hat was a marketplace find by Libelula World and it was free to scoop up!  One size fits all of course.

My top and jeans are the latest free group gift by Shanti (did you know that Shanti is Sanskrit for Peace?).  The group is 99L to join and you can grab several other group gifts as well, along with a monthly 100L that all VIP get.  You’ll also get half off all new releases so you do get your 99L worth (you basically get it right back via the gift card.  Pretty nifty huh!).  This outfit (both top and jeans) fits:

  • Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Fine
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

My awesome pose with the sparkler is from Le Poppycock, it is another of their Nextup goodies that I have been grabbing lately.  The machines are only 75L a play and there are endless poses.

Anyhoo, better wrap this up.  It’s taken me far too long!

Hey faboo gang!

It’s a rainy day here in my real life world, a day to crank up those fairy lights and delve into some fun second life fashion!

I love to find designers who are *not* on the big designer list and introduce them to everyone.  There are a helluva lot of good designers out there that you never hear about and who don’t even get a chance because they are overshadowed by those designers you *do* hear about every day!  I like to share these “mom and pop” designers, the small businesses of the grid to show them some support.

This time around I have found a cute place called It’s Me.  They have some freebies and dollarbies, but my eye caught this outfit which was still only 29L, I love the funky pattern on the overalls. It also comes with cute sneakers to match (not shown). This cute set which has both the top and the pants fits:

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

My pose is another cute 75L Nextup find from Le Poppycock.  I love that you wear the props and they pose you, so you have nothing to rez.  This pose comes with both the tree and the dove, as well as the pose, of course.

Slaying Those Dragons

Alii&Alli and Poppycock Poses

St. Paddy’s is now behind us, and it’s time to shed our green threads.  I was playful tonight and wanted something fun.  My blogging sisters *MAY* have become a little possessed by the fantabulous 75L Next Up Machines at Le Poppycock poses, and I had this awesome pose set called Forboden Realms: Dragon Soul that I was DYING to try!!!!  It comes with the pose, the very big dragon, and a sword.  A SWORD!!!  Oh, I was sooooo wanting to use that sword all Camelot style.

Poppycock Poses

But, I needed an outfit.  I remembered picking up Shanti’s gorgeous Bewitching outfit (soooo pretty) at Twe13ve, and I needed fantasy hair.  Well, I knew where to go!  Alli & Ali Designs always has fun hairstyles that you really can’t find anywhere else.  The Crazy Magician Hair in Ukraine Colors is perfect AND it’s FREE by belonging to the Free Group!

I Need a Pig Here!

Modern Wonderland

Hey gang!

This outfit reminded me of a modern sort of Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.  See how she sits surveying her royal domain?  Wouldn’t you like to play Red Queen too (Off with their heads!!!)?  I’m here to tell you how!  Just put your feet up on your pig, call in your fat boys, grab a dwink and lets go!

The Sexy Red and Black Dress

I found this dress at a shop called Mia Styles.  It is a free group gift and the group is free to join.  It fits:

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Slink

Remember, You Can Tune a Piano But…

Now the pose and the piano come from Le Poppycock, where a lot of us have been stalking lately, because she literally has a room of Next Up machines to play with more cute and fun poses than you can shake a stick at! (pictures herself standing in the room shaking a stick at the machines but finally giving up)  The machines are all 75L or less a play (this one is 75L) and one of my very favorite things about these poses is that you can use them anywhere, because you wear the prop and it poses you, so you do not have to rez them! (does happy dance!)  So am I wearing the piano or is the piano wearing me?  One of life’s great mysteries my friends, but whichever way, it works like a charm!

Did you eat my tarts???

Let Me Take You Down….

Hello loverly faboos!

Spring is coming my darlings!  It really, truly is!  I cannot emphasize how *glad* I am that warm weather is beginning to creep in on us.  With the Ides of March past and St Patty celebrations happening everywhere, even the fashions are shouting spring!  (if er, clothing could talk, that is!) (perhaps its best clothing can not talk… o.0)

I found this stunning little dress at the TWE12VE Event, it is a 12L item from Emerald Couture, who blesses us with lovely creations in every season.  I knew I needed this dress the moment I saw it.  And for 12L, well as I like to say, you sure can’t beat that with a stick! This adorable dress fits:

  • Classic
  • Fit
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink & Hourglass
  • Venus

It also comes with sure cute matching shoes, not shown in the photo.

Now, it’s not just the clothing bursting out spring, but the poses as well.  Amitie has more of their fabulous poses for you at the Arcade, all Boho Spring inspired (this one is called Strawberry Fields) – which is right up my alley!  Each pose is only 50L a play and they are one cuter than the other!

TWE12VE Shanti and L&P

I love me a good fashion event in SL.  I love them more when gifts or dollarbies are a part of it!!!  The TWE12VE Event is one of my favorite.  Great designers and really nice 12L dollarbies & even a freebie!!!  I picked up this adorable “Lucky” dress from Shanti just in time for St. Patty’s Day (free gift, no group required), and these adorable Origami earrings from LooLoo & The Platypus to match.  The earrings come in gold, silver, and variations of color with those metals.  For 12L, you can’t go wrong! Twe12ve is running until March 31st.

Crazy Cat Lady or Non-Morning Person?

cat lady_007

Heya Faboos!

I swear I am not the crazy cat lady y’all have been hearing about!  I swear, I’m really just not a morning person and I needed to put the cat out! (was he on fire??)  Just me trudging downstairs to let the foolish little felines out for the day, lest they meow me to death!  Meow, meow silly, meow meow!

And why does meow starts to look like it’s spelled wrong if you keep looking at it?

Anyhoo!  If you *are* that crazy cat lady, or have dreamt of being a so called cat lady, OR you just can’t get enough cats in your sl world, then read on!

The Arcade, as you might know, is in full swing again.  And if you can get the machines to play nice with you, you can put together this outfit by Belle Epoque, who has a whole machine filled with robes, cats, cats to put out, cats to carry, even cats to put on your head!  Oh the delight of it all!  This machine is only 50L per play and this is the full key of what’s available:

The robe comes with a HUD and fits Maitreya and Legacy.

Now my slippers, which are yes, bunny and not kitty, but they *are* pink and fuzzy and that is all that really matters, can also be found at The Arcade by Dazed at only 75L a pull.  They have a nice cozy morning set of goodies for you to play for as shown below:

The Arcade continues to the end of the month, but you will want to leave yourself time to try for these, if you don’t get them right off the bat.

Happy Arcade-ing!

The Bearded Guy and the Secret Garden

Simple Gifts

Every good story should start with the line, “let me tell you about The Bearded Guy and a Secret Garden.”  Such is the case with today’s outfit.

I started my morning as I always do, reading the FabFree blog to see what my blogging sisters have been up to.  Well, it turns out that Sister Arielle had been over to the Secret Garden, and that reminded me that I, too, needed to get on over there to see what goodies can be launched from those precious machines.  You can read about her adventures with the Mooh machine here.

While I have to admit that I was not at all fond of the Gacha ban, I really don’t mind the “next up” (there are so many names now) machines.  For one, I thought at least 20 times, wow, I just saved a fat ton of Linden.  In the Gacha days, I would never buy hair or clothes at a machine because I am very specific about my hair color, and I don’t like wasting precious Linden on clothes and accessories I will never wear.  Imagine my delight when I landed at the Demicorn spot at the Secret Garden and the three machines were humming in tandem!  Each 50L a pull, I scored three dresses that I will wear (red, pink and white), 2 rare pink bears, a black bear, and 2 gift boxes.  It was a such a nice score without anything I wouldn’t actually want!

Once I finish reading the blogs, I check out all the sales for the day, and, since it’s Saturday, there are lots of things to occupy my virtual purse.  I headed over to The Bearded Guy for some sale props, and that was the first time I had been to his store.  HOLY TOLEDO!  The Group is 75L to join, but there is an ENTIRE WALL of group gifts AND a 1500L Gift Card for group members.  I bought this scene, Cute Palacio Backdrop, with the Gift Card.  The scenes range in prices but the 1500L Gift Card will buy one fatpack or several single scenes.  I did the latter because I have a “thing” for pink.

So now that shopping is over, I can go listen to Rasbury Rearwin play the guitar in a seriously cute outfit!!!
