New Year Brunch

New Year Brunch
Hiya, New Year’s Day is a time of traditions and resolutions. LOL, like most folks who make those New Year’s resolutions mine are pretty much done for by March. However, the traditions seem to stay year after year.

Sneaking A Taste

Until my 2 of my 3 sons had married, and the last one left home, we had a tradition, my middle son is a New Year’s baby, so every year at midnight we would ring in the new year with birthday cake, and a very tiny glass of champagne. New Years Day I would be up with the sun spending my day in the kitchen cooking a brunch feast for those always hungry boys, while they spent the day in front of the tv watching football games. Jacx seemed to think it was a pretty fair idea to recreate a new year feast while modeling Meander/Me Bonfire Top. This wonderfully detailed cropped sweater is a free group gift. Lemania Indigo owner and creator of Meander/Me is known for using beautiful textures on all her creations. And body sizes oh my goodness there are a lot. The hud for the Bonfire top is a generous 13 color hud in rich fall colors. I would like to thank our sweet Miss Caroline for letting us know that the Meander/Me group is now free to join, and she showed some really fun items from the shop here. There are 41 group gifts available, so joining Meander/Me‘s free group is like getting a whole new wardrobe. 🙂

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Holiday Sparkle

Holiday Sparkle

Time to sparkle!  Time to shine!  Time to get super excited, because Alaskametro are having a hunt!  YAAAAAAAAY!

ZOMG!

I absolutely adore anything that Alaskametro does.  You will forever find me buying the latest releases because they are consistently gorgeous and utterly wearable.  When they organize hunts, I am pretty much in 7th heaven!  This one is NOT to be missed – the prizes are beyond gorgeous and I am OBSESSED.  Ok, now that I’ve gushed enough, let me get you the details.  All over the Alaskametro store, and in the surrounding outdoors, you’ll find 29 awesome gifts that range from bodysuits, to shapes, to skins, to makeup!  I could not do without the absolutely gorgeous sparkly dress I’ve got on, and the heels are perfect for Holiday parties galore.  I’ll list everything I’m wearing in the credits below, of course, and I’ve added the hunt key below so you can see the goodies.  There are two ways to take part:  You can either buy each prize for 25L, or join the group for 50L and then pay 1L for each prize. Woot!

Dress Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Medium with an Alpha Layer

Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls

I’ve got festive spirit coming out of my ears today!  Well, not literally – because that would be kind of creepy, but you know what I mean!  It’s time to deck the halls and trim the tree, and of course find some awesome gifts for our friends, our family…and ourselves!

I’ve Had a Vision!

ViSion are at it again!  This time, they’ve got 400L in store credit for members of their group.  There are so many pretty things to choose from, but I found a dress that made me feel pretty Christmassy in green and gold (it cost me 250L of store credit), and pulled it together with an awesome pair of boots (you can see them below, they are sized for Maitreya, Legacy, Hourglass and Freya) for just 199L in store credit.  To take part in this awesomeness, just join the ViSion group for 18L, and click on the sign in the front entrance of the store.  Make sure you don’t forget to use this store credit soon, it expires on January 6th!  So many choices….

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Physique

Sip and Shine

There’s a fun free gift on the counter at ChicChica – this really cool and entirely sparkly drink has put me in a very festive mood.  I always love her creations, they seem to complete an outfit when I’m out and about! It comes in both red and green versions, as well as holdable and decor versions.  No need to join a group for this one, just click on the gift box and buy for 0L!

Have fun!

The Only Way to Diet

The Only Way to Diet

There’s a place where I live that looks exactly like this background in my photo.  I mean… I had strange flashbacks of eating massive decadent desserts when I sidled up to take this pic.  With visions of piles of brownies floating through my mind, I thought to myself… Wouldn’t it be nice to own an outfit that stopped one from consuming too many calories?  Welp, I’ve got just the answer…

Rowne Does it Again

All kidding aside (well, some of the kidding aside), Rowne is being super generous with their latest additions to their lovely collection of group gifts.  If you join their free group, you’ll find plenty of fashion-forward looks, including the two latest:  this bodysuit (which also comes with a mask you can turn on and off – see below) and this high slit skirt.  Both come with an HUD full of colour options.  The mask is just too funny to pass up, and it will help stop me eating too much banana split.  I think…

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy Perky

Here’s to inventive solutions!

The Magic of June

The Magic of June

The end of the month of June is a magical time, I think.  The long days, the warm nights, the stars in the sky… it all kind of mixes together to make this enchanting heady mix of lovely weather and (if you’re lucky) relaxed living.  I’m having a sip of all the season can bring, and it’s got me feeling like it’s alllllll good.

To Amias we Go

It’s time to celebrate Amias‘ 4th anniversary!  The store is all on sale, and there’s a new group gift for members of their free to join group.  There’s even a version of this lovely cropped sweatshirt for the guys, so nobody is left out of the fun.  There are plenty of other really nice gifts on the wall there too while you’re at it, so do check them out as well.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

A Sip of Hope

You all know that our awesome Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing, and we’re so proud to show off the lovely gifts the creators have put out for you.  This super sweet drink comes to you from ChicChica, and it’s completely free.  Isn’t it pretty?  I love the bento holds at ChicChica, always so delicate and perfect!  You’ve got a while yet to take part in the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt… check out all the prizes and hints right HERE.

Ah, June.
