Coffee Contemplations

Coffee Contemplation

Summer Cabin Fever…

Who would have thought I’d be going stir crazy in my own house in the middle of summer?  I don’t count my numerous travels to appointments as relaxing outside time, but I am finding excuses to venture out just for a change of scenery. I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with my Kindle in hand just to feel the sun on my face and hear the morning birds sing.  I’ve been taking evening walks at a local walking path, and even dragging walking the dog when I’m up to it. All these things give me a sense of normalcy.

Take a walk and shop….

I took a walk (virtually speaking) down to The Wash for the Cart Sale. There are many items on display for guys with nothing over 10L.  It officially doesn’t start until tomorrow, but most vendors have booths up and running.  I picked out and outfit from the selection of men’s clothing to choose from. I always make sure I stop at the Dark Water Designs cart for some inexpensive clothing pieces. This round of the Cart Sale has three different layered shirt prints and I chose the Palm Leaf Layered Shirt. I matched it with the Faded Tan Cargo Shorts, each just 10L. I also looked through the selection of shoes at Poeme. Although the fitted sneakers are for women, there are a few patterns that could be considered unisex and using the unrigged version, I made it easily fit my man sized feet. I chose the Happy Blue Canvas Chucks, also just 10L.

Rest and catch my breath…

After all that walking I needed to sit down. Lucky for me I was near the Park Place Home Decor cart and found a Bright Director’s Chair, another 10L find. This chair comes with many sits for both males and females. It also has animations for drinking coffee or wine and even provides the drinks. I’ll just sit here for a bit and watch the passersby while i catch my breath. I hope to see you down at The Wash Cart Sale that (offically) begins tomorrow and runs through July 5th.

Right Here Waiting

K&A Design (Cart Sale) LDR Justin Trousers FA Red Sneakers MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

“Wait here,” she says, “I’ll just be a few minutes….”

That was an hour ago and it has started to snow. But here I sit, because I was asked to.  I’m wearing a few old (previously blogged) items, because they have become some of my favorites this holiday season, and some new items I hope will become favorites. Let’s start with the old… From The Wash Cart Sale, I’m wearing the K&A Design Winter Red Sweater that I first showed [HERE]. This seems to be one of my go to items in my closet lately. It’s just $10L on the K&A Design cart. I’m also wearing the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I showed [HERE].

“Watch these bags while I check out the store over there…”

OMG! How long is this going to take… I joined the LDR  group for FREE and picked up the Justin Trousers as a FREE Group Gift.  I also joined the Full Addiction group, again for FREE,  and got the Red Sneakers as a FREE gift.

MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

This is for the birds…

Waiting here in the cold and the snow… I’ll most probably get sick before Christmas. At least I have my little owl friend to keep me company. The Xmas Owl Scarf  by MoonAmore+Cureless is a FREE gift under the Christmas tree at The ArcadeThis little guy has his wings out, but there is also a scarf with him perched safely on the scarf. Finally, -sigh-  Here she comes…  No! Don’t go in the pet store…..

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)

Baubles & !gOs

AvaGirl & AvaBoy - Baubles Bear Sweater & Ice Skates

Lacing Up the Skates…

I’m going skating, (or at least virtually… It is just too cold to go outside today). And you can too with the FREE Christmas gifts from AvaGirl & AvaBoy. For the men, the gift was Baubles Bear Sweater and Ice Skates w/ animations. Just wear the skates and your walking and running movements make you skate like a pro. There are ladies gifts as well in the AvaGirl store. I also grabbed a pair of Bruce Rolled Mesh Jeans off of the Rispetto Designs cart at the Wash Cart Sale. As with all the other items from the Cart Sale, the jeans were only $10L.

Too Cool for the Ice…

If you’d rather just sit and watch, at least do it comfortably in the Todd Shirt & Jacket which is the Day 18 Male Advent gift from !gO. The jacket can also be worn separately to match your style. Now, if I only had a drink to dip this candy cane in…

Color Crazy

Heyya FabFree! It’s Friday at last!!! *does happy dance*

Color Crazy

So, I’ve gone from monochrome black and white to crazy colors today! It just goes to show you that you can find everything right here at the Bi Annual  Cart Sale at the Wash. I jumped a few Carts down to the Savoha Cart to find my super cute overalls and shoes. These are the ‘Rainbow Overalls’ and the ‘Bolly’ shoes. The overalls comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and have a good alpha layer. The sleeveless tee is part of the complete outfit for ease of dressing. I just love the happy colors!

My shoes are also from the Savoha Cart. These are the ‘Bolly Flats’ and for your 10L you get three color variations: blue, pink and purple. The shoes are for the System foot and come with a shoe base.

Believe it or not, we only have five more days to shop the Cart Sale, so don’t delay! The July 6th deadline is coming up quick!

Bluebell

Happy Monday, FabFree!

Bluebell

I guess I could have called this post Blue Monday or Monday blues… but in a good way! My “blues” are curtesy of the Nerdy Girl Cart at the Bi Annual Wash cart Sale today. My gorgeous blue dress is the “Beach Dress” in Blue Ocean. This cute dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The Beach Dress comes in three ‘wave’ colors, a cloud white, denim and a super cute nautical print. All for just 10L each!  Even my cute “Flower Sandals” are from the Nerdy Girl Cart. The sandals come in five colors ( each sold separately) and with a rigged version for SLink flat feet and an unrigged version as well.

I’ve even got a great new blue hairstyle today from Analog Dog. This is ‘Kanpai’ and not only does it come in blue… it comes in pink and auburn and blonde and… well, every color Analog Dog makes! Analog Dog has set out the full free fatpack of Kanpai as part of the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebration at Hairology.  There’s a ton of gorgeous free hairstyles to be had at Hairology this round as well as deep discounts on some of the best styles for the best designers! Just look for the layer cake at many of the booths and have a slice.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash runs until July 6th while Hairology runs until June 30th so don’t delay.

Don’t Try to Box Me In

Don't Try to Box Me In 1

I am making away with some fabulous finds at the Cart Sale… and this sexy little black dress just happened to catch my eye this morning and find its way into my wardrobe. I really think it is a must have simply for its versatility. The design is clean but classic and embellished enough that with the right accessories it can be casual, elegant, Gothic (as I have done) steam punk, fantasy, or just about anything your heart desires. And for just 10L at the Stars Fashion Cart at the Cart Wash Sale, it was a real gem to take home. What’s more, it comes in all the standard sizes, plus fitmesh as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza fits.

Don't Try to Box Me In 2

I wanted to stop by to see a particular sim (the location is listed at the bottom of this post) and somehow the wintry feel, class ideas of ghosts and lives past, brought out the Gothic poet in me! So when I saw this stunning FREE accessory gift by Pixel Box designs — and how well it went with my little black dress from Stars Fashion — I just fell in love. You don’t even need to join the group, just hop over to Pixel Box and buy the gift for FREE. You’ll get these gorgeous boots, the raven hand bag, and the black rose head band all in one box. Do hurry though! Pixel Box tends to change out their FREE gifts quite frequently!

Purely Pretty

Purely Pretty 1

The holiday rush is upon me, but I decided to take a moment today to reflect, enjoy some time with coffee by the fire, and read a good book. For me that meant a favorite pair of jeans and letting my hair down.

If you haven’t stopped by the Cart Wash sale yet, now is the time to do so. Many designers are participating, and nothing is over 10L. I picked up this fabulous pair of Bia jeans by Tiffany Designs for just 10L. They come in traditional system layers, but I was thrilled to see that my mere 10L expenditure also got me layers for mesh bodies (Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza).

The Tiffany Cart also had a beautiful FREE holiday gift set out for shoppers, be sure to stop by to pick that up!

Purely Pretty 2

If you will remember, I recently showed you one of two MINA Hair VIP group gifts HERE. I donned the other one in these pictures. This style called Hanne 02 is simply lovely for a relaxing day away from the holiday hustle and bustle. It is yours FREE with your group tag active. If you are not currently in the group, it will cost you 200L to join, but remember, you get 2 gifts monthly (full fat packs) so that easily makes the fee worth it.

To finish off my look, I checked out the growing number of gifties at the Chop Zuey advent calendar. This gift is from the group required side for day 1 and is called The Violet Flame of Purity. It is FREE with your group tag (the group is 350L to join) but the gifts are going to be generous. That small fee is going to get you 12 days of gifts for the advent alone – both men’s and women’s plus gifts through out the coming new year. This set included not only the color change necklace and bracelet shown in the pictures above, but also a pair of earrings that I am not showing. Well worth the fee to join the group!

The time to grab up the amazing deals at the Bi-Annual Cart Sale at The Wash is quickly running out! This round of The Cart Sale ends September 16th. This your last chance! I don’t know about you guys, but with fall here I am ready to redecorate. This great rocking chair, complete with a ton of animations, is just 10 lindens at the X-Clusives Animations cart. There are several furniture pieces, most with single and or couples poses available at the X-Clusives cart for just 10 lindens each. I have to say I am genuinely impressed with the animations on this rocking chair. They are not static sitting poses, and they seem unique. I will definitely find this chair a home on my porch!

XClusives CartAlso, MoDanna recently put these cute “boyfriend” jeans out as their FREE September group gift. I want to wear them with everything! They are so cute on, and just the right height to show off all the great ankle boots that are in fashion for fall. These fully mesh jeans come with a matching alpha, and standard mesh sizes.
