Getting Cozy

Getting Cozy

I’ve been crowing left, right and centre about how cold it is out in my part of the world, and that means that I’m in the mood to make my living space cozy and warm.   I want piled blankets, a roaring fire and slippers at the ready!  Now, who’s bringing me a hot chocolate?

Back to Cozyfest

There are only a few days left of Cozyfest, and that means that if you want the goodies, you have to get there before it all disappears on February 4th.  I wanted to feature some of the amazing 50L decor items that will help you keep the chills at bay.  Here’s what stood out for me!

  • 50L Fireplace by HEXtraordinary which allows you to turn the fire on and off
  • 50L carpet by Spruce in several different colours and textures
  • 50L couch by Granola
  • 50L ladder by Atelier Burgundy
  • 50L suitcase and accessories by Disorderly
  • 50L lamp by Llorisen

I’d love to see how you decorate – there are so many creative people out there!

Stay cozy!

I Want Candy

Candy Girl

Hey gang!

It’s the last week of Cozyfest so I wanted to sneak in two more of my amazing 50L finds.  I’ve been hermiting the last day or two watching a blizzard dump snow on my rl home.  We have a good foot and a half, and its a whopping 15 degrees and still pretty windy at about 19 mph (wind chill of 3 degrees) as I write this, so I’ve just had some of the chocolate chip cookies I baked today and some hot chocolate with rum to warm up a bit.

My second life self has been enjoying some of the same, some chocolate bars and donuts on a stick for her (made me wonder how you keep the donut from falling off the stick once you have eaten a decent amount of it.  I would think it would take a tumble right off.)  Either way I’m just a gal with a sweet tooth, and I do love those candy bright colors too.  So let’s get to the goodies I found for you, neither of which have anything to do with bright colors or candy!  Huh.  Go figure!

Let’s talk about these amazing boots.  These boots are from Friday at Cozyfest, they are of course 50L and you have the option to wear them without the lights but I got them *for* the lights cause if I could just drape myself in glitter and fairylights, well.  That might be downright blissful.  They fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Now the build I am standing in is by Lemme, also 50L at Cozyfest.  This cute pink cabin comes in a lighter pink or a darker pink and is just super cozy and cute.  It was pink, so how could I say no?  Like Aline, I have a bit of a fetish for houses and buildings, a girl can just never have enough!  Add pink in that mix and well, you’ve got me doing some heavy breathing!  I chose the lighter pink one, the shade just appealed to me more, but I absolutely adore it!

Now, back to my yummy warm drink and perhaps a nibble more of the cookies!  Hope y’all are staying toasty too!

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Nice and Cozy!

Hey gang!

Hope you are all staying warm and enjoying some cozy time during this frigid (where I am anyway!) January!

Like the other ladies, I too have been stalking Cozyfest and seen all the gorgeousness there.  I brought something to show you from there too, this is a 50L find from Asteria, this sexy little number felt perfect with Valentine’s day coming up so quickly, so I grabbed it.  The pieces are mix and match and each part is separate and 50L each (bra, panties and shirt), including a HUD with ten coordinating colors for each too.  This set fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Now maybe the other girls are good getting cozy on their own, but I love a little four legged baby to snuggle up to.  This cutie is from Foxwood and the set of Doodle pups is on sale right now for 75L.  Not sure how long it will be on for, so I would hurry if you want to grab a little sweet pup!  They are truly adorable.

Ready to Weekend

Ready to Weekend

Oh thank goodness it’s Friday!  I’m so glad for a few days off, and I’m going to spend them doing all sorts of excellent self-care type of things.  It all starts with the right outfit, and perhaps a pile of tater tots.  Maybe.  Shh, don’t tell anyone.

Keep it Cozy

I headed back to Cozyfest – it’s calmed down a bit if you haven’t managed to get in yet – and picked up a few extra goodies for the weekend.  Some paid, some free that I missed on my first go around.  I first bought the tagged top and shorts for 50L each from Violent Seduction.  They have that goth yet chill vibe I covet.  To go with, I picked up the gift at the Violation booth – which are these glowing snowflake earrings that are equal parts cozy and glam rock.  The earrings were free when I joined the FLF group for free and clicked on the box in their booth.  Cozyfest is running until February 4th!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Yay!  Weekend vibes all around!

Cozy Time

Coming Soon

Get Cozy

We saw some gifts at Cozyfest from Aline here. I have a few more from this great event to share today as I finally managed to get into the event! I am only showing free gifts available at Cozyfest.

  • My blush and freckles are gifts from theSkinnery. These gifts come in BOM layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads. This set gives you that perfect flushed frosty look you get in the cold.
  • The scarf is the gift from le fil casse. You can resize it and change it to many different colours with the colour hud included.
  • The headband is the gift from mintae! It’s a bit vintage and super cute.

Other Cozy Finds

I threw on a couple other gifts to complete this look.

  • The cute shoes are a group gift at StephaneL. These are the Giulia boots and they were released this winter. I love them! They fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. The StephaneL group costs 15L to join.
  • The cute hairstyle is a free group gift at Nova Hair Studio. Pick it up along with all their other gifts for free!

See you soon, FabFree!

The Big Dig

The Big Dig

My part of the world got a massive winter wallop yesterday.  40 cm of snow fell, which basically means you had snow up to your knees.  The world is still digging out from said snowstorm, and it’s been quite nice to be able to watch the world turn into a snow globe from the comfort of my living room.  It put me in the mood to get bundled up in SL too, and head out into the snow (without the shivers!).

Feeling Cozy

I’m back with more 50L finds from Cozyfest.  I get so excited at these FLF hosted events, because there are really so many awesome deals and gifts.  Today I’m showing you the offerings from Tentacio and Nylon Outfitters.  The Tentacio 50L item is this really cozy and totally cute outfit.  It comes complete with everything you see me wearing – the scarf, the mittens, the cup, the bag… it’s all one perfectly sculpted look that I am soooo into.  It doesn’t actually say what it is sized for, but it worked perfectly with my Maitreya body.  It comes with an HUD to change the different parts’ colours too.  They have a few other items at their stand as well.   You’ll have to use an alpha to make your arms and hands disappear so that this outfit works.  The hat and hair is an excellent cold weather option courtesy of Nylon Outfitters.  Makes me feel cozy just looking at it!  50L is a great deal for a fun every day winter look.   Cozyfest is running until February 4th, so you’ve still got time if you haven’t visited yet.

Stay toasty!
