Become the Druid Wizard

Druid Wizard

It was like a whisper or was it just the wind. The voice I just heard, murmur in my ear. I continued working, finally after a long day, I retired to my bed. Was awoken from such a vivid dream. As my eyes opened the dream faded, all but a feeling, then the voice again. “You will embark on a journey across the grid. To find the pieces you need to become the Druid Wizard I seek.” I shook my head then fell fast asleep. I rose the next morning thinking nothing of my dream the night before. Again the voice whispered in my ear. “To Kitty Creations you must go, quickly you must embark on the journey. For in a fortnight’s time I will need you. Look upon the floor and follow the silver gargoyle tracks. They will lead thy to what it is you seek. A miniature charred looking gargoyle which holds your gift.”
Once I found my gift I went to open it. The voice told me nay, you need to find all the piece before you can open the gifts. Off to Lindy the voice sent me to look upon the The Renaissance Hunt poster for the mini gargoyle that harbored my hint. I traveled the grid scaling mountains, across lakes, over vast sims, large oceans, and treacherous passes. To Simply Shelby, Delightful Creations, and Sweet Revolutions. Finally my journey was nearing it’s end. I had gathered all the pieces to which I was sent to find. I opened them in order from the first found to the last.
I donned the leather red hooded jacket and black pants from Kitty Creations. Pulled on the worn red leather Druda shoes from Lindy. I yielded the crystal wizard staff from Simply Shelby. Before I could open the others I was told to enter the dark woods. Travel through them until I saw the mystic fog. Was to follow it, where I came upon a druid rock circle. There I opened my last to gifts. The Spinning Pentagram from Delightful Creations and the Magical Crystal Of Lunimba from Sweet Revolutions.
They seemed to both spring from the boxes and move magically into place at the center of the stone circle. I was drawn onto the pentagram near the Crystal of Lunimba. I held up the staff and my hand. Before I knew it I was chanting the crystal was glowing and magical sparks filled the air. Swirling around me zodiac rune symbols appeared. Out of thin air a mystical pentagram formed in my hand. I had finally become the Druid Wizard to which the voice sought.

You too can embark on your own journey finding magical items of Witches, Wisewomen, and Wizards. That is the theme of this years The Renaissance Hunt X. The Historical Hunts Ltd. holds three hunts a year. All of them are free just like this one. Why not have a little fun, do something different, and join the hunt. You never know what goods you might find.

Nostalgia

Nostalgic

Have you ever been nostalgic for something? Like the smell of an old bookstore or the sights and sounds of a record store. It’d be great to be able to just snap your finger and be instantly transported into a record store straight outta the movies. Like Championship Vinyl from High Fidelity, Trax from Pretty in Pink, Polymer Records from This is Spinal Tap, Motormouth Maybelle’s in Hairspray, Chelsea Drugstore from A Clockwork Orange, or Empire Records of Empire Records. I think it would be awesome to visit Trax. When I grab the Men Only Hunt gift from Ascend and saw the way the Rick Open button Blazer looked. It gave me them Duckie vibes.

I came up with a Duckie inspired outfit, decked out a record store in 80’s vibes, and put on some Otis Redding. Before you know it I was singing
“All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna
Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Don’t be surprised, man
You got to squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave
You got to hold her, brother, something, man
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah, yeah”
and dancing around just like Duckie. You better dance your way over to Ascend and grab this Rick blazer soon. You only have eight more days before the Men Only Hunt ends. You’ll be looking for a PS controller and this hunt gift will set you back 10L. Pardon me while I dust off my vinyl and get back to dancing and listening to some tunes.

Self Expression

Self Expression

“I’m not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion.
Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression.”
~ Phoebe Philo

Hello hello Fab Free’ers! I’m going to make this short and sweet because one of the finds I am about to share with you is for this weekend only. This gorgeous leather jacket is a Happy Weekend special at LeiMotiv priced at just 60 linden for this weekend only. It comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud that allows you to change the main portion of the jacket, the pockets on the sleeves, and the metal parts.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Adorning my new jacket are several pins from the two free pin sets at Star Sugar. I’ve been eyeing these for a little while now, waiting for just the right thing to wear them with. Pin set 1 includes 16 pins and is free for SLF&O group members. That group is free to join. Pin set 2 has 9 pins and is free for everyone, no group needed. These pins are intended (I believe) for a backpack also sold at Star Sugar, however I was able to wear them with my jacket by attaching them to my chest attachment spot and moving them to the place I wanted by editing them. I’ve included the vendor photos for each of the two sets below so you can get a look at these cute as heck pins.

Cereally

Cereally

I am *thisclose* to going on a rant about the joys of cereal.  I am wrestling with myself over the importance of declaring my love for anything cinnamon-flavoured in a cereal bowl, and maybe even discussing the magic of miniature marshmallows nestled into a sugary bowl of goodness.  Well, I guess I did go on a little tangent about cereal, didn’t I?  Sometimes I just can’t help myself!

It’s All About Quinnty’s

There’s a new group gift at Quinnty’s!  There are so many colourful, fun 80’s inspired, geeky(ish) goodies there that I always get a bit excited about a new gift.  This outfit comes with the jacket, jeans and even the shoes (sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink)!  I’m vaguely obsessed with reading all the writing on the clothing, and was even a bit giddy when I saw “always bring a banana to a party” on the shoes.  Yeah, Doctor Who reference for the win!  Anyway, grab your very own Mae outfit at Quinnty’s by joining the group for 50L.  There are a pile of other gifts while you’re there too, as well as some group member deals, so do check those out as well!

Take a Little Trip

Take a little trip
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me

~ Low Rider

It’s way too hot in Texas to stick around. Today, the temp on the car’s dashboard said it was 108 degrees! That’s Way. Too. Hot. Some I had to get away.Take a little trip… as it were.  Luckily, it’s always nice on the Grid. I even found a gorgeous SIM that’s based on the Highlands of Scotland… where even in the Summer… it’s nice and cool.

Take a little trip

I was also pleased to find a great free gift from V8 that is perfect for wandering the Highlands. This is the Roger Urban outfit and it’s free with your Third Life Group tag. To join the Thrid Life Group just click the poster and pay a small one time 10L and there you go. Now, when I say outfit… that’s the whole outfit. You get the sweater plus scarf, the trousers, the fedora and the sneakers. (There’s also a pair of sunglasses that I forgot to put on…) The mesh is a good solid build. I had no clipping issues and it moved well. The colors would be good for Fall or Winter. I have no idea how long this special will last so don’t delay.

Find Your Rainbow

Find Your Rainbow

Rainbows, rainbows everywhere these days, eh Fab Fam?  I’m not complaining one bit.  Rainbows have different meanings for different people, I’m sure – but the best part about rainbows is that they always mean something happy.  For some, rainbows represent peace, others it represents Pride, and for others it represents a massive pot of gold.  Whatever it means to you, I’m sure you can agree with me that rainbows are flipping awesome!

Numbers and Letters

28LA are celebrating Pride in an great way!  They have a large array of colourful outfits for both male and female avatars.  There are tops, jeans, leggings, and different length jackets, all priced at the very attractive 0L.  Yeppers – no need to join a group here, just click on the group of items hanging outside the store and pay 0L.  A massive pack will be delivered to you, and it’s filled to the brim with cute options.   There’s nothing better than free!  Wheeeeee!
