Red and Pink

Red and Pink

I always thought that red and pink couldn’t go together.  Wasn’t there always talk of red and pink clashing, and how if you had red hair you could never wear pink?  Looking at all the offerings right now that are swirling these two distinguished colours together with reckless abandon, I’d say that theory was completely bunk!

Taking a Bite out of Love

The Love Bites Hunt continues this week (until the 17th) and you really can find all sorts of goodies on the sim.  It may take you a bit of time and patience (and possibly some eye drops, oy veh), but boy oh boy is it worth it!  I found some really fantastic stuff – my “Cupid is Stupid” top (with such lovely long sleeves, amirite?) and cute heart-adorned skirt are by Loki and cost me 25L each and sized for Maitreya bodies, and my super sweet heart-shaped glasses are by Dazed and were 25L as well!  Can’t say no to that!

Go forth and make some bold and romantic colour choices!

What do you mean you’re done?

FabFree: What do you mean you're done?

Hello there Fabulouses!   It looks as though I won’t be counting on these guys for a ride back to the JellyRoll Closing Sale.  I’ll have to find my own way… and I will because it’s one fantastic sale!

25L JellyRoll Closing Sale

I’m sad to see that JellyRoll plans to close it’s inworld doors on January 19th, but sometimes we do need to step back to focus on RL things, and it looks like it might be the case with JellyRoll.  The ad does state that their items will still be available on Marketplace and that they will be doing releases there as time allows, so that’s good news.

JellyRoll - Store Closing SALE

What did I get in my first trip?

I picked up the Autumn Sweaters that came with a texture change HUD with plenty of different options and the Giselle Hair which came with the hat!  Both items set me back 25L each.    I really do need to go back and pick up some more :D.

Happy shopping, and best wishes to Tavish Zane of JellyRoll!

Snow Queen

Snow Queen

I’m thinking about moving into an ice palace.  It will have all sorts of sparkling things, and I’ll sing about letting things go or something like that.  I don’t know…what do people who live in ice palaces do all day?  Shiver?  Good thing I’ve got this cute outfit to keep me (semi) warm!

Bound for Snow

Have you tried your luck on the Snowbound Hunt yet?  If you remember back at Halloween I had a heck of a time doing the Spookzilla Hunt, my eyes were watering and I needed a lie down!  This hunt is by the same people, so you may want to take a deep breath and grab some snacks and eye drops before you nestle in for this long winter’s hunt!  The entire sim is filled to the brim with gifts hidden in christmas baubles.  The stuff I found is by Loki – including this cute sweater and skirt were just 25 Lindens each, and are both sized for Maitreya bodies.  I’d say that’s a pretty good deal!  Try your luck and see what you can come across at Snowbound!

Free Hair? Yes Please!

Looks like the group join over at Doe is free for the time being!  Not sure how long that will last for, so get yourself over there before they change it back to a paid group!  There are currently two free fatpacks of hair on offer in the group gift section, including this cute on I’ve got on today.  I won’t keep you – hurry over there!

Well, the snow never bothered me anyway…

Except when I have to shovel it!

Austin in the Fall

Austin in the Fall

It’s  good day here on the Grid to just wander some of the spectacular Autumn Sims.  Fall is my favorite season and I mean to enjoy it.

Perfect for Crisp Days

I found a new-to-me designer while Hunting down Dirty Little Secrets: Nuts Inc where they encourage us to “Have the guts to wear Nuts”.  This is the ‘Austin’ Denim jacket and tee and it’s on the 25L path for the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. There is also a ladies prize that perfect compliments this jacket. The jacket comes with a HUD for six colors of denim and eighteen colors/patterns of tee shirt.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL

Now, I’m going to finish my walk then see if Juli left any of the chocolate from her and the dogs trick or treating. 😉

Masquerade

Masquerade

Happy Wednesday Fab Free!  Get into your comfiest clothes, plop yourself down on a chair, and put some eye drops in because have I got a hunt for you!  It’s Spookzilla time – and that means awesomeness.  It also means that your eyes may try and do a runner and exit your body because of all the strain, but it’s all in the name of fashion, so tell them to suck it up!

One Sim, A Billion Finds!

Here’s the deal:  You head over to the very nicely decorated Spookzilla sim, then wander around looking for little pixel ghosts allllll over the place.  And I MEAN all over the place – under tree roots, inside jack o’lanterns, on the roof… you name it.  You’ll soon find something awesome, and nothing is over 25 Lindens.  If you want to know what item lies within the ghostie, all the stores have provided a key at the landing point.

I picked up a massive pile of goodies, including this exceedingly lovely lingerie and nailpolish set by Alaskametro.  The lingerie itself comes with appliers for Maitreya as well as an Omega applier and system layers with several options on how the different pieces can be worn (i.e. omit the gloves, omit the stockings, wear it all etc.).  There are three sets to find – a dark green, deep burgundy and the black you see me wearing.  I also managed to find the black lace skirt (sized for Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique and XS – M) that goes over it, as well as the nail polish appliers that come with three different hues to match your outfit.   I paid 25L for the Lingerie, 25L for the Skirt and 25L for the Nail Polish, making the whole outfit just 75L.  YAY!

Well, what are you waiting for? Go to Spookzilla!!

Fishy Strawberry Goodbye Sale

FabFree: Fishy Strawberry Closing Sale
Hello there Fabulouses! Brace yourselves, because today I have some bittersweet news for you.

Fishy Strawberry says goodbye with a 25L sale

It’s always sad to see a talented designer close it’s doors in Second Life, and I know that Fishy Strawberry will be missed by many when their land is sold, and they close the doors.  I remember finding this shop featured at The Dressing Room (the original one little house build!!), which may be as far back as 2011 or 2012!  I always loved their style and how well everything fit and they have been generous with gifts too (which are still available in the store, btw!).

For an unspecified amount of time, until the land is sold, they are hosting a store wide 25L sale – including all of the new stuff in mesh body sizing…  That’s the sweet part.

*Fishy Strawberry* Goodbye Sale

Where do we go? Where do we go now?

Where do we go? Where do we go now?

You guys, this morning I put my baby girl on the school bus for her first day of Kindergarten. She was so excited and waved happily out the window as the bus drove away. I am…okay, kind of. I know she’s going to do great but I could use some hair pats. haha So I called my mom to apologize for ever growing up and putting her through this and then I came here to find something pretty to distract myself with.

My Distraction

This sweet dress was only 25L at Belle Epoque. It is marked down for yesterday’s 25L Tuesday and was still discounted this morning when I went and scooped it up for myself. You can choose either the white that I’m wearing or pink. Both are lovely and have that classy, timeless look that I’ve come to associate with Belle Epoque. I stuck around and took my picture on Belle Epoque’s pretty sim. Even in this gorgeous location and wearing these fabulous things, I realize that this probably isn’t my best work. But I’m fragile right now, okay? Just tell me I’m pretty and give me chocolate and/or bourbon. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go see how much L I can blow on gachas.

Neon Nights

Neon Nights

I am, as I’m sure you are, ready for an injection of some warmth.  I am imagining summer nights today, with neon sunsets of orange, pink and gold, sinking downward towards the ever moving and shimmering waters of the beach.  It may be too early for that, but I found my way to the sunny climes of SL, donned some summery clubwear and threw some shades on for good measure.

Topping it Off

My top, slick as oil, was a free group gift I picked up in my many wanderings around the grid.  The CLBlue shop is new to me, but the quality of the top is impressive and I’m hoping to swing by again soon to see what else they have to offer.  I went on a rant earlier about how talented SL creators are, and how I couldn’t possibly fathom how they made clothing all reflective and shiny – it’s so cool, isn’t it?  You can grab this top by joining the CLBlue group for free!

Shirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kemono Default
  • Kemono Rei
  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Kemono Fitted Torso

Jean-ius

I found a skirt to go with my top at Epoch.  Pretty much the entire store is priced under 75L, so if you’re looking for something budget-friendly, you should definitely check them out.  I picked up this jean skirt for 25L, which is a great deal since I can wear it all the time, with loads of different tops.   There are a bunch of different shades of jean skirts in store, ranging from light blue to this dark black.

UPDATE:  Looks like the price has gone up to 100L for the skirt – Alas! 

Skirt Sizes

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

Keep wishing for that heat!
