Settled In For A Long Winters Nap

POErOrOIt’s a good thing I ate my wheaties this morning…

Because I had to wrestle him for the TV remote tonight.  I was in the mood to settle in the best spot on the sofa and watch some animated Christmas specials.  They are all over the guide listing this month and I’m happy about that :).  The only problem is that I can’t make up my mind which one to watch, because I love so many of them and there are only three weeks left to watch them all.

Love’s Ultimate Favourite Top 5 Animated Christmas Specials (mostly in no particular order):

  1. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
  3. Frosty The Snowman
  4. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
  5. Santa Clause Is Comin To Town

Of course this list is just the cartoons…  How will I ever find time to fit in all of the Christmas themed movies too?  *Sinks into the sofa with a smile*.  He might as well kiss Supergirl goodbye because he won’t see this remote until January!  What are your favourites?

Cozy Apparel

You can find this super cute long cardigan with top at @rOrO FREE for the Peace on Earth Hunt!  I paired it up with  some comfy flared jeans by Aphorism available now as a new release at this round of FaMESHed and braided my hair all cute on a budget thanks to Wasabi Pills at The Arcade!  I was lucky enough to get the blonde pack on my first pull of 75L.  That sure doesn’t happen often.

Sizes Included:

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

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)

TGIF & Siss Boom Weekend Specials

Snapshot_003TGIF!!  It’s been a long week.  I sure wish I had a beautiful lake house in RL to escape to…  but I suppose a Second Life trip will have to do for now!

If you happen to have a few spare lindens kicking around this weekend, make sure you take a little trip to Siss Boom and check out the sales they have going on.  I popped in and picked up the high waisted floral printed Boyfriend Jeans for 60L and this great matching Jersey Lace Top (available in a system layer and Omega applier) in green for 55L.   These jeans come in both gold and silver belt options and I gotta say… the gold option matches the top to perfection.  Also – as this top is an applier, there is no interference with the mesh jeans as we sometimes see with mesh on mesh outfits.

I should mention my hair as well as it is also a smoking hot deal!  You can find the Oleander Chanmi Hair I am wearing at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  This round is ending quickly, so if you like this hair – act fast!

Enjoy your weekend ❤

Easter Sundae

Easter Sundae

It’s the start of Easter Weekend, and there are lots of fun spring-time goodies to be had around the grid. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, you’ve got No Eggscuses to not pick up this cute little dress. It’s the No Eggscuses Hunt prize at Serendipity. Aside from being a completely adorable mesh dress, the gift is just one linden if you hunt for it, or you can simply buy the dress for 25 lindens and skip the hunting part! Either way, this strapless dress from Serendipity an adorable springtime dress at an awesome price. You’ll also find a men’s prize as part of the No Eggscuses Hunt at Serendipity, so the guys can participate in this one too!

To go with the dress, I wanted some jewelry that was equally cute without being overdone. Izzie’s Easter bunny jewelry set was the perfect thing! I love these dainty pearls with the simple bunny ears, they are classic and cute as can be! You’ll find this earring and matching ring set on the Marketplace for FREE. The gift from Izzie’s includes the set in gold, copper, and silver. Easter or not, these are too pretty to not have them in your jewelry box. You can check out the vendor photo below for a closer look!
Izzie's - Bunny Pearl JewelryI have to tell you I’ve been eyeing this double bun hairstyle by Olive for weeks now. It’s their Arcade gacha item, and at 75 lindens per play I’m really glad I gave in and played the machine. This mesh hairstyle has tons of color hud options to be had, and a rare “glittler roots” version. Again, the style is 75 lindens per play, and since it’s a gacha the hair is transferable so you can swap with others for the color you want!

Last but never least, shoes! I won’t wax poetic about my love for shoes, this time, even though these chunky pumps from HOC Industries are worth the effort. These heels come in a Maitreya fit, Slink Fit, and include a hud that allows you to change between quite a few colors. Another fun addition, the ankle straps can be hidden to change up the style a little! These pretty pumps are just 1o lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy, and Happy Hunting!

Old School

untitled
Happy Friday everyone 🙂 I am stopping by the blog today to share news with you about the current Sn@tch Fishing Prize!  Right now you can fish for the 21 piece Back To School Set that includes five mesh skirts, four mesh sweaters, socks, shoes lipgoss and freckles.  One of the things that I like about these fishing prizes at Sn@tch is that they are so versatile.  You can mix and match and toss in your own additions as well.  I am wearing the BTS black sweater vest, the bow and  the grey skirt today, but you can see the whole collection in their vendor ad below.  You will need to have the 7Seas Fishing Rod to fish for these items which can be purchased right in the 7Seas Vendor at Sn@tch.  It will set you back 100L, but you can use it for future fishing prizes – one time fee.    These fishing prizes switch out every couple of weeks!  No bait is required.
snatchfishingWith Halloween coming up next month, I also wanted to mention that DRD is offering a free gift of decorative Mystery Mansion Cob Webs at The Arcade Gacha that look amazing with their Mystery Mansion Gacha Set, although you could use them in any old skeery house!  These webs come in a pack of four different shapes.

Goods New / Bad News – You Decide!

Snapshot_006I have some news for you today that is kinda good, and kinda bad :/.

I adore simple / clean fashion and have always been a fan of the designs that come from Aushka & Co.!  Well.. the other day I received a notice letting me know that due to limited time, Aida will no longer be designing under the Aushka & Co. brand and will be focussing her time now on her new brand = Breathe.  With that, many a design in her Aushka & Co. shop will be retired to marketplace (full price) on the 13th of September.  The good news is that until then you can pick up anything in the shop for 50 or 75L like the very pretty vintage dress I am wearing today (75L).A&CO_Closing Sale She also has several group gifts that you can pick up after you join their free inworld group as well as dollarbies too.  Most of these have been blogged on FabFree already, but I wanted you to see that they are all available at this moment if you missed any!Snapshot_007

Hazy Daze

Snapshot_007
Hey Fabulouses! It has been a busy couple of weeks with The Heat Wave Event and the addition of three new bloggers, and I thought it would be a good idea to take a load off and do a little SL chill-out night so I have set up a little spot by my pool with some of the items from The Zaara [goa party] gacha machine at The Arcade Gacha.  In fact, my whole outfit (aside from the shoes) is part of the 50L per play machine offerings as well.  I had a lot of fun with the pieces of this set – hope you like them enough to go play the machine too.

My lovely long hair today is a free group gift by Entwined called Ivy and comes in a full fatpack of colour shades!  This group is free to join – don’t miss out 🙂

Now back to hazy daze!

The Heat Wave Event: Entice

Snapshot_002

Greetings Fabulous Readers!  Today in my blog post I am featuring the fine and very affordable fashions that you can pick up on the Entice display at The Heat Wave Event on The Wash Sim.  In the above photo you will see me wearing my favourite item on display – The Head Over Heels Dress in Lavender Rose which is available for just 10L.  This feminine piece is simply dishy with the all over floral print and bottom skirt frills.  As you can see in the photo below there are 9 ladies fashions available at 10L and a pair of add-on heels (for Maitreya & Slink) featured at 50L.

Snapshot_003

ps.  Without taking away from the Entice feature, I also wanted to pop in a little note about the other cost effective gacha items in my post because they are all under 75L too.  The Damaris Hair includes the hibiscus flower and is 50L per play at The Arcade Gacha.  My Carmen Wedges are also available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play and include Slink & Maitreya add-on options.  You can also find my Atomic Alpaca Pal at The Arcade Gacha for 75L per play.  The furnishings in the photo are by Apt.
