Macaron Monday

Macaron Monday

Ah, Macarons.  I could write an essay bout how much I love them.  I seriously could.  I’m actually sitting here in RL eating some that I picked up this morning at Ladurée, a place that I am mildly obsessed with.  Have you ever tried macarons before?  They are delicate, sumptuous and creamily delicious in every way possible.  I’d eat them every day if I could…but then I’d probably be morbidly obese!  I even have some in SL, where I can stare at them longingly…

Sweet Outfit

Aaaanyway….my look today is completely FREE courtesy of Indyra.  They’re celebrating this month, and they’ve put out 4 gifts in their shop that you pay 0L for.  I grabbed this top and the leggings I’m wearing, which shine delightfully in the light (there is a light included in the box so you can watch your clothing shine all day).  The gifts in the store are located on the tables with the cakes, so use your eagle eyes to search them out!  Enjoy!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?

I’mma Say All The Words Inside My Head

I'mma Say All The Words Inside My Head

Have you been to the Garage Fair yet? Aline showed off some of the free stuff from this event today too! I heard about it last week and the store list looked promising so I went over to check it out. It’s totally worth a visit! The set up is easy to navigate and there weren’t many people there so lag wasn’t an issue. Those are two of my favorite features in an event. Do you know what else makes it awesome? Free gifts! Most of the shops have a gift out. A lot of them are priced at 0L and 1L, and some are 10L. Today I’m showing you FOUR fabulous things you can pick up for a grand total of ONE L! The Garage Fair goes until June 9th so you’ve got plenty of time to go shop.

Wearing All Of The Gifts At Once

Well maybe not all of the gifts, but a lot of them! I’ll break it down for you, from top to bottom. It’s going to be a lot of words but well, it’s also a lot of free!

  • My hair is by Tameless Despina and comes in a pack of blondes with a color change headband. Super cute! And super free.
  • This top comes with a pair of shorts too (which I’m obviously not wearing) and a HUD that provides lots of color options. Both the shorts and the top came in 5 standard sizes XS-XL as well as Belleza Venus, Maitreya, and Slink Physique. Oh and do I need to say that it was free? Because it was free. You can pick them up from Sweet Temptations.
  • My /AZ/ jeans are the only thing I paid for, and buy “paid for” I mean 1L. But you can never have too many pairs of great skinny jeans, am I right? They come in 5 standard sizes XXS-L and I was able to find a perfect fit.
  • I think my favorite part of the outfit is these super cute free shoes from Ahroun Designs. I love the look of sneakers on the high foot shape and these are just all around super cute kicks!

Phew. Did you get all that? I know I’m still new here but I’m sure you’re used to skimming me by now. hahahaha Here’s the important deets one last time…Garage Fair, free stuff, ends 6/9. Good? Good!

A Sale Suits Me Just Fine

Oxford

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a limited time offer that our male readers may want to take advantage of.  Currently, just about everything at Kauna, except gachas, is set to sale for 0L……yes, you read that right – suits, shoes, accessories, just about everything for free!  As soon as I heard about it, I popped on over to the sim and set to work purchasing some terrific additions to my SL wardrobe.

Suit Up!

Every guy needs a “go to” suit and 2BN Casual is going to be mine.  Complete with a jacket, waistcoat, button down shirt, handkerchief, socks, and belted trousers, this outfit is perfect for business casual, as well as a night on the town with your significant other by your side.  With the shirt, you can select from open or closed collar and tucked or untucked.  The best part?  After picking up this complete outfit for free, I have plenty of Linden dollars left for an extravagant evening!  The package contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Although there wasn’t a fit specifically for the Belleza mesh body, I was able to wear the Slink suit just fine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in Small and Medium (includes alpha layers for blazer jacket only, shirt, and trousers)
  • Slink (Small and Medium for Slink)
  • TMP

Sneakers Just Won’t Do

With these new fancy duds, my gym shoes simply weren’t going to cut it.  I looked and looked, but I had no formal footwear in my inventory.  Lucky for me, the black Oxfords in my photo were also completely free at Kauna.  With neatly tied laces and just the right amount of shine, these classics provided the ideal finishing touch.  The package included shoes that I think were designed for non mesh avatars, but by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza mesh body, they worked out perfectly.

I’m going to head back to Kauna and set what else I can snatch up before this sale comes to a close.  There’s still time left for you to head over to the shop and complete some transactions on your own, but HURRY!  This sale will continue only until the end of May.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Properly Spoiled

Properly Spoiled

I used to hate when people used to call others “spoiled”.  It was only recently that I started calling myself that.  You realise with time that there are those who have way less than you, or whose circumstances are worse than yours, or perhaps even that they don’t have anyone who will check up on them.  In that sense, I’m super spoiled, so I wear my t-shirt today with pride!

Spoil Me

My adorable cropped tee is a Fab Free Group Gift from Tiar.  It’s completely free to all members of the Fab Free inworld group, so don your tag and be spoiled!  I love the colours – anything vaguely unicorny makes me happy!  If you’d rather go a bit darker though, there’s an HUD to change the top to black (or pink – of course!).

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Cropped Up

The cropped jeans I’m wearing today are a sweet find by HashTag on Marketplace – only 5 Lindens for a pair of artfully ripped jeans that I’ll probably wear with everything this summer!  They fit my Maitreya body perfectly, but if you have another body I’d give it a try and use your alphas to see if they fit you too.  I’d say that’s a steal!

Go spoil yourselves, my darlings!

Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

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

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

Cherry Chapstick

Cherry Chapstick
Good morning Fabulous Readers!!  Only one flavour would do on these lips today – Cherry chapstick!

OK, any flavour would have done…

Because… this Betty Outfit that I am wearing today that includes the dotty blouse and high waisted shorts actually comes with a texture change HUD with five different colour options.  You can be whatever flavour you want! What’s even better…  is that this outfit by NyDesigns is a free group gift with a free group join!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

The Perfect Shoes

After I had this outfit on, I remembered that N-Core has their Isla Wedges in a white floral print as a free group gift at Tres Chic this round.  These dishy corked shoes will be great with so many of my outfits this summer that I’ll be keeping these beauties handy!  Compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and N-Core feet – these shoes will fit just about everyone!

The Tres Chic inworld group is free to join, and as previously mentioned on FabFree…  There is no shortage of free gifts there!

A Moment of Peace

Peace

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I have family arriving from out of town tonight, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a budget friendly hunt find that I picked up for just one Linden dollar.  Since Stan had such good luck at the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt, I decided to give it a go myself, and came away with the Gloria outfit from Sweet E’s Designs.  With its floral skirt and coordinating short sleeve top, this outfit had me instantly ready for summery weather.  The shirt features a scoop-style neckline adorned with a narrow string tied in a bow.  The mini skirt, with its column of four buttons and four pockets, rides low on your hips and hugs your curves.  Since the outfit contains both classic and mesh avatar versions, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for you.  To pick up this complete outfit for yourself, teleport over to the store and search for the puzzle piece hidden in the store.  The hunt sign out front has a hint giver, which I found pretty handy.  Since the hunt concludes on June 3rd, you still have plenty of time left.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

After my peaceful moment at Butterfly Beach, it’s time to round up Ripley, and head off to the airport.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

What kind of every day magic do you love?

Repping the T Dot

Repping the TDot

I am totally repping my home town of Toronto in this t-shirt today – you know, Drake lyrics on my shirt and all that jazz!  Toronto is a concrete jungle of greyness and insanity at times, but right now the trees are in bloom, the sun is shining and I’m ready to take it all in…but maybe a nap first? Good thing this exceedingly comfortable pool table just happened to be here…

Mom’s Plan

I got my Drake-lyric adorned shirt today at High V, where they put out a gift for mother’s day for both males and females, and it’s entirely free.  It’s a great little crop top for days where you just kinda want to laze around, while also showing off your midriff!  No group join required, just a click!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Slouch On

I found a pair of sweatpants that work really nicely with my t-shirt at Atik.  I like the striking colour combination of lime green and purple, as well as the slouchy fit of the pants.  You can grab your own pair by joining the group for free (make sure you end up in Atik , look to your left from the landing point – took me a while to find it myself!)

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Isis
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL Fitmesh with an Alpha Layer

Oh, and just so everyone knows, I refuse to call Toronto “The 6ix” because that’s just lame.  It’s T.O., because I’m old school like that.  Ahem.
