Hello Fabbies! How is your week going? Are you all as happy as I am that we are passing the midweek mark? I thought, as I was just lounging around my skybox, I would show you all a few of the free gifts that some of our generous FabFree Designers currently have available down at the FabFree Headquarters.
First up of the FabFree gifts, Seldom Blue has put out the beautiful Lottie Lingerie in a lovely pinkish shade of red, and black. You can wear this set with or without the waist cincher and garters, as well as the stockings. For all you meshy-bits lovers, there are a few appliers supplied with this, a combined Tangos and Phat Azz applier, a SLink feet applier, and 3 layer HUDs for the SLink Physique body, so almost everyone should be very happy 🙂
I personally believe that lingerie and jewels go together perfectly, so I was pretty happy to see that the current gift at FFHQ being offered by DDM Designs, was a gorgeous pair of sweetheart earrings, which just so happened to have a pinkish-red stone in the hearts. Talk about happy coincidence!
Now, when lounging around in your lingerie, you cannot lounge in an empty room. So I took advantage of 2 more free gifts being offered at FFHQ. The first being from StoraxTree, the aptly named Cathedral Chest, has a definite gothic church feeling to it. Just above it is my second choice, the spirograph memo board from Wise Walls, which is a nice contrast in style to the chest. It is actually one of 2 wall decorations you receive in this gift, the other being a pretty heart memo board, which also would have worked nicely in my pictures, not to mention complimenting my heart earrings!
Are you eyeing up the skin I am wearing? Don’t worry, stare all you like, I did when I first saw the gacha for it. Located just outside FabFree HQs, is a new gacha from Flounce. Many of you older skin lovers may remember Mimi Coral’s previous store, Cupcakes, Flounce is her newest creation, and yet again, she is satisfying our skin cravings, and at only L$25 a play for this gacha, it satisfies our love of a great deal as well. There are 5 different tones available, each tone having 2 different makeups, and none of the makeups are alike, so you have 10 different skins to play for, and all of them are so pretty. I have included a picture of the gacha ad for all of you to see, I am wearing #7, Anna – Latte – Nebula. The skins come with several different tattoo layers for beauty marks, freckles, blush and cheek highlighting, which you can put together to make your face your own.
OK, my evening is winding down, and I think all this lounging has made me ready for bed 😛 Remember, do not let anyone tell you that it is weird to hang out in your undies and high heels, alone…well, almost alone if you don’t include Simon, who is already sleeping in the background. Until next time, TTFN!! *waves*

I no longer make New Year’s resolutions. At the ripe old age that I am in RL, I’ve learned – usually the hard way – that just because the calendar ticks over to January 1st, that does not mean I’m ready to make any major life changes. If it did, my house would be clean and perfectly organized, I’d have the business credential I vowed to pursue, my book would be written, and I’d be about 15 lbs thinner. Instead, I get a few weeks of success, followed by months and months (sometimes years) of guilt.
That being said, I still take time at the beginning of every year to think long and hard about life. And when I come up with something that needs fixing – which I usually do – I make a promise to myself (yes, I know that sounds a lot like a resolution, but trust me, it comes with a lot less pressure). This year, my RL promise to myself is to “be in the present.” Simplistic? Yes. But simple? Not so much. To a gal with a full plate, including a business, a family, volunteer work, and SL, among other things, it is very difficult for me to just… be. To stop and smell the roses, so to speak. I’m always thinking about what I have to do next instead of what I’m doing, and I feel like life is moving so quickly that if I close my eyes for 2 seconds, I will have missed something important. I don’t want to wake up one day and find my daughter packing up her car for college, leaving me full of regret for having missed spending as much time with her as I wanted when she was young.
To quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Along those lines, the first major change I made in SL for 2014 was to get a new house and move into the sky. While I truly love the sim where I live, I’d really grown tired of strangers walking into my house – and staying – uninvited. So instead of moving away, I moved up. And while I’m waiting for the movers to bring my furniture, I’ve decided to sit and enjoy the quiet with my furry housemates.
Several items around me are worth mentioning: the lovely, lighted 2014 is the current group gift from ::Fabuleax::, and the vase of flowers behind it is a gift from JoHaDeZ. The packing box and books, as well as the elegant wine lights, are group gifts from tarte. Both my sandals and the cute tissue box on the book pile are Fifty Linden Friday sales items, which, as of this writing, were still on sale for 50L – probably not for much longer, though! The pretty picture on the mantel, as well as the adorable guinea pig are gacha items from ::Fabuleax::; I got lucky and managed to win 2 rares! The guinea pig comes with a cute holding pose, but he got loose, so I decided to let him play with Fiona. And finally, my house of cards was 5L on the Marketplace.
May you all have a wonderful 2014 – don’t forget to enjoy it!

* As a side note, last September 19th I “resolved” once again to lose weight and exercise, and I’ve lost 12 lbs as a result. Which just goes to prove that what matters is your determination, not the date on a calendar. 🙂
