Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!

One of the things I love most about fall is pumpkin spice everything. Especially the coffee. ūüėÄ

Sevyn East set out this adorable outfit for The Jerky Turkey Hunt. For just 1L, you can get the cute sweater with a flirty skirt, the scarf, and a pumpkin spice latte-to-go!

The Pumpkin Spice Sweater comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Standard with an alpha layer

Unlike the skirt, the scarf is not attached, so you can remove it for a different look.

A texture-change HUD is included with 4 designs for the sweater, and 4 gingham patterns for the skirt and scarf.

The pumpkin spice latte comes in a venti! ūüėé

The Jerky Turkey Hunt runs through November 30th. Just find the orange feather and buy it for 1L to grab your gifts.

While you’re at it, take a look at TJTH gifts these Fab Free bloggers have shared:

Happy hunting!

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! ūüėõ

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet,¬†and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from¬†Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar…¬†although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. ūüôā

My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

skater8_001f

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! ūüėõ

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free¬†group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro¬†for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. ūüôā

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the¬†free¬†group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. ūüėÄ

Looking pretty while on the move, with RD Style and Lumae.

Hello again ūüôā It’s Thursday already, and it’s been a busy week for me here in SL. I just finished moving into a new place, my own little abandoned church in a field. Lucky for me, I¬†put together the perfect moving ‘look’ thanks to RD Style and Lumae. Wait, you didn’t know that¬†you could move house AND still look pretty? Well, that’s the beauty of SL! Let me show you…

rdlumae2

OK, so honestly, I had 3 moving day outfits. Yes…3, hey,¬†don’t judge ;P hehe. You see, I was going through LM’s that I have, picking random ones to use, and I happened to land at RD Style, and they had just put out 2 new group gifts. The Nya #I in white, and Nya #II in black, both come with colour coordinated¬†SLink flat feet sandals, and these dresses are just too darn cute.¬†I love¬†the candy pattern on the¬†white dress especially.¬†I just could not pass them up. They are free for group members, and it is L$100 to join, but you gain access to loads more past group gifts once you join, so it is well worth it.

rdlumae1

The other fun¬†outfit I have on, is also RD Style. After I finished grabbing the group gifts, I noticed a sign saying L$25 deals. Naturally, I had to go look. In a¬†room to the left of the entrance, you will find all sorts of great deals on past releases, with a nice selection¬†of them being only L$25! Like the group gifts, and most outfits from RD Style, it is a whole package, shoes included. I picked out the Kawaii #II outfit because of the bright colours and fun print of the over-shirt and boots. This is the perfect outfit for moving…don’t you think?

rdlumae4

Last, but certainly not least…how pretty is this skin I am wearing? Lumae‘s most recent Lazy Sunday offering is the gorgeous Adore skin in Nightshade makeup. I am so in love with the purple eyeshadow! At only L$75 each, all tones are available, and each one comes with a plethora of appliers, pretty much any applier you can think of. As with all of Lumae‘s Lazy Sunday buys, she leaves them out for the full week, so you have until June 14th to grab Adore.

Moving is tiring work…and looking good while doing it…even harder, LOL! If only it were this easy to move in RL. Alright all you fabbie readers, I am all done for today. I think it’s time to pull out a chair and enjoy my new place. Until next Thursday, TTFN *waves*.

Side note : You are not seeing things…I am in fact, eyebrow-less in my outfit shots ūüėõ I corrected it in my close-up though! This is going to keep me chuckling for a while.

Good Ju-Ju

Snapshot_006
Good evening everyone! I am back tonight to share news of a few more freebies and dollarbies at The¬†We ‚̧ Roleplay event as well as some awesome gacha items that I have come across recently.

I’ll start with the under 10L stuff¬† and then move into the gacha deals;)

In the photo above I am displaying the following four items that I have picked up at this round of We ‚̧ Roleplay:

* [Takeo] Tabletop¬†¬†(10L)¬†–¬† This wooden board with game pieces is displayed on the rug and is just 2¬†prims.

* NOMAD Antique World Map (10L) РThe Antique World Map is leaning up against the wall behind me and comes in a set of 2 for just 10L.  The maps are 2 prims each.

* Roawenwood The Way of The Warrior Tai Chi Meditation Rug (free / 0L) РI am displaying the rug as a decorative item, but actually it has a menu of tai chi and meditation animations in it. (2 prims)

*Ex Machina Kopermikus Star Machine  (free / 0L) РThis star machine is really cool and actually works spinning sparkly stars around the room when you activate it by touch. (4 prims)

Also displayed as décor items, I have used four items (Big Cabinet, Side Letters, Plate Cabinet & Big Clock) from the Industrial Side gacha set at 6th Republic Event.  These items are all low prim and are just 55L per play.

My outfit today is by Aphorism and is available in the Ju-Ju gacha set at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival for 75L per play.  I am wearing the rare black jacket, common black skirt and rare black hat.  I love the bones!

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

SLiving In A FantaSea

Snapshot_00fdCare showed you several of the sweet things you can pick up at The Under The Sea Expo (at this link), and I’m here today to show you a few more things! ¬†I did the Treasure Hunt and found some fun fishy things to play with for above the water, and below! ¬†As Care mentioned, this hunt is a little different than most…

When you arrive at the starting point, which you can find on the TP board at The Under The Sea Expo, you click on the map with the pearl on it. ¬†It will then give you a hint to your first location. ¬†You will then head back to the TP board and head to that shop. ¬†When you arrive at the shop, you are to locate the same treasure hunt paper with the pearl on it, and click it. ¬†It will send you a prize, which you will accept, and then check local chat for your next destination. ¬†It will take you on a tour through the entire expo and you’ll get a huge haul of free gifts! ¬†Each person will be sent on a different path, and sometimes the prizes are different too, so this is a solo hunt.

In the photo at the top, I am lounging upon the Zohee’s Mermaid Designs 3 Lilypad Merseats which is a hunt prize.

Above: Zohee’s mermaid Designs 3 Lilypad Merseats (free / 0L / UTSETH)

Below, MerCal and I are displaying the Fantasea L’Attitude Male & Female Combo Hunt Item that includes the male and female version mermaid sets as well as a working mermaid AO. ¬† Aquatics also has a beautiful gift for Undersea landscaping. ¬†The lavender Jaelen Patch behind us is the hunt gift I picked up! ¬†I found the fun Merguin at Oceania.

Another one of the prizes you could be gifted with in the Treasure Hunt is the Fantasea Log On Set that includes the Log, and sign.  It comes with a few single menu driven poses. (Cal and I are not using the poses in the log.)

Kittycats is where you’ll find my Summer Splash Swimmer Cat. ¬†You wear this item, and it swims around you while you move around. ¬†How fun is that?! ¬†lol ¬†The scales on my face are courtesy of Beautiful Freak (also come in a pack of different colours to match your other mermaid tails), which is sharing a spot with House of Rain – the gifter of these Bring on The Dancing Horse Rings that come in both L&R and silver and gold options.Snapshot_002Kittycats Summer Splash Swimmer Cat¬†¬†(free / 0L / UTSETH)
