Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

In My Birthday Suit

In My Birthday Suit

It’s high time to head to the beach, I think.  Ok, it may only be March, and I believe snow is looming in many parts of the world, so quite frankly we need to soak up the rays right now, even if they are only in SL.  I found a really cute bathing suit at Lana that may just tickle your fancy!

Vitamin Sea

The salt water lapping at my legs is all I need to feel at peace today, though this bathing suit by Lana is seriously giving me those mid 90’s vibes that bring me back to a fun time and place in my life!  I mean, how can you say no to a hot pink suit with “Birthday Suit” printed across it?   So hot.  It comes with an HUD to um…. reveal some more of your upper body (cough, cough), you can also change the colour to a dizzying array of awesomeness.  It fits my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  You can grab this fun bathing suit by joining the Lana group for 100L (there are other gifts up on the wall!).

To top off my look, I have these free catty ears by Enchante which I grabbed at the Cosmopolitan event by joining their group for free.  There is another gift there too – both are hiding by the front entrance to the event! Meow!

Right, it may ruin my hair, but I’m diving in!

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve has always been my favourite.  There really is something magical and wonderful about it.  One of my most beloved traditions for Christmas Eve, is the fact that we all get together, gather around the table for hours and hours, have the best food and then after midnight, we bust out the cake and champagne before we roll ourselves contentedly into bed.   In order to be ready for tonight’s revelry, I of course needed to find the perfect fancy outfit to match the occasion.  And as I always say, if it’s free…even better!

Dazzling Delight

I popped over to the Cosmopolitan event, and found that they have a massive Christmas tree that is covered in gifts for group members.  Join the group for free, and then click on each little stocking hanging from the tree.  I got this gorgeous dress from Seniha (they actually have three dresses for you!).  I love the fact that the hem of the dress is dripping with sparkles!  So festive!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Tree Topper

Also hanging from the tree, is the little Christmas tree headband that I think is super cute.  It’s lighted as well, so you will be absolutely glowing tonight!  I also found the floating stars by Persefona that I added for an extra magical touch.  Both are delightfully free.   My finishing touch is my eye makeup which I also found hanging on the tree by VYC Femme.  The smoky eye comes in several different colour options on the applier, which is for both Omega and Catwa.

Well, my dearest readers, I hope that your Christmas Eve is filled with magic and delight.  I wish you all peace and much joy.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Snow

A Shovel Full…

I knew better than to answer the phone at the crack of dawn… “Carson, PLEEEEEEEASE come shovel my snow.” The nice guy that I am gets dressed and heads over to Love’s house to dig her out. It’s a good thing I stopped at Free Dove and picked up some warm clothes. and yes, the FREE in Free Dove means everything is FREE! I picked out the People Puffer Jacket by Kaju and the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men. I also picked up the Mosh Pit Combat Boots by Sn@tch. This is keeping me warm. I’m even working up a sweat.

The snow wasn’t the only thing that got brushed off…

As I’m hard at work shoveling, (proof provided in the picture above) Love is standing at the window, clutching a teddy bear and sipping a cup of coffee. All the while, I’m thinking about after I get finished, Love will offer me a cup.  I finish up and as I head for the steps, I hear “Looks good, Carson. Thanks!” and see the curtains pulled tightly together. I hopped in my old jalopy, (yes it’s running, today…) and changed out of my wet coat and into the Leni Roll Neck Sweater by Tiffany Designs, another FREE gift at Free Dove. I headed down the road and bought my own cup of coffee.  The next time she calls to be shoveled out, I’m grabbing this snow plow. To heck with the shovel!

The After-Christmas Return Rush

newclover Neo Coat brown Neo SLacks black

Looking for those After-Christmas deals…

Love and I came to a compromise when it comes to shopping… She lets me carry her bags and I don’t complain about it. I’m not quite sure how that works in my favor. 😖 I honestly can’t believe she wanted to return my gift! We checked out the post holiday deals and did I find a great one.  We stopped at NEWCLOVER and I found many items on the racks marked down to …wait for it… FREE! I came away with several nice looking outfits and I’ll show you a couple of them. I paired the Neo Brown Coat and the Neo Black Slacks for a business casual look. I’m also wearing the Brown Dress Shoes, which is a FREE group gift from Gabriel.

Throwing out the old and hanging up the new…

As you can see behind me, I’ve been doing some sorting of my closet. I’m slowing getting rid of the old to make room for the new. I received this FREE Hanger Set as a group gift from NEWCLOVER .  Two more Items I found there for FREE were the Neo Navy Slacks and Navy Line Flow Shirt. Can someone answer this question… Why does a woman get mad after they ask you if their butt looks big in a pair of jeans and you answer honestly? Sometimes I just can’t win….

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Wilson's Merry Christmas Hunt

Now it’s the middle of the night on the open road…

I heard that a certain someone was complaining that I didn’t have a car. WELL... I just happened to come across one sitting on the edge of the road. It had a hastily written sign stuck to the windshield that simply read “FREE”. Who am I to look a free car in the mouth… err… or something like that. I finally got the old girl started (just to be clear, I mean the car) and I drove it down to Wilson’s Designs were there is still time left to find the Brown Leather Jacket and Blue Slacks, the hunt prize on the Merry Christmas Hunt. Find the prize and it can be yours for just one shiny Linden ($1L). The Merry Christmas Hunt runs through January 2nd.

The heater don’t work and it’s oh so cold.

It’s a good thing I’m wearing the Black Leather Booties,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel. It seems that this jewel of a car isn’t wanting to start. I am also still wearing (and possibly will never take off) the FREE A&D Clothing Top Gun Glasses you can still get under the tree at Cosmopolitan, that I previously showed [HERE]. Maybe if I get out and push then pop the clutch, it will start. If all else fails, I can always call Serena to come pick me up…. ummm why did her phone go straight to voicemail?

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Deadwool & Pie

Deadwool

Walking off the pie…

I admit, I had one too many slices of pumpkin pie 🍰, and YES I made it! So I decided to take a little stroll to burn off some excess holiday calories. When I was out waiting on a bench shopping the other day, I happened to buy a few Christmas presents for myself. Anyone who knows me is astonished that I actually SPENT MONEY on myself or anyone else, (the present I got Love only cost $10L.. shhhh). I have been told ever since I came back that I HAVE to shop at Deadwool. I found out they had the Erik Gloves as a FREE group gift and I was in the door. And that’s where It went downhill from there….

They get you with the marketing every time…

I picked up the gloves and then looked slightly to my left and I saw it… The Mesh Duster… My mind was racing… I want this… I NEED THIS!  The logical side of my brain was saying “You don’t even know if it fits”. I instinctively clicked for a demo. “Great, it fits… no, no It wasn’t supposed to fit.” Time to do the math… I can buy one. OR I can buy the fatpack of three (because I know in hindsight I always wish I gotten the fatpack.. as you will see). So I put down $899L for the fatpack and greedily opened it up like a child opening up presents under the tree.

Baring my chest or not…

I need a shirt to go under the jacket. “The simplest thing would be to just get a shirt here” my mind was in full spend mode at this point. It was time I took control again. I decided I could find a free or cheap option elsewhere. TL:DR I ended up back at Deadwool l and purchased the Hugo black denim shirt for $360L. Yes, I lost that battle with my own brain. Now my brain says I should have bought the whole shirt fatpack… Dang, it was right again. I did manage to save myself some money on the pants. I picked up the Peter Outfit by TentatioN, a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge and used the pants to make this great look.

A&D Clothing - Top Gun Glasses Deadwool - Erik Gloves Mera - Scarf

Accessorize then exercise…

I already mentioned I got the Erik Gloves at Deadwool  (where this long story began). I Also picked up two gifts under the Christmas tree at CosmopolitanA&D Clothing has provided the Top Gun Glasses as a FREE group gift. I finished off the look with the  Meva Scarf another FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]. I did use the color change HUD to give it a completely different look. After all this spending, I was a bit stressed out. Now you know why I went on a pie 🍰 binge and why I’m walking to work off those added pounds. It’s such a “chore” to keep your body fit SL. :🍰

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).
