The Exotic Reaches of the World

india_011

Heya fabbies!

I found this gorgeous outfit at Good Fairy.  I absolutely love the Eastern and exotic styles of clothing, so this really called out to me (ok it literally screamed in my face!).  This stunning set is a free group gift and the group is free to join as well.  It comes with a HUD letting you choose from a plethora of matching colors for each part (wrap, dress, etc).  It fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Ocacin
  • Voluptuous
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic
  • Belleza

So if you want to stretch outside the ho hum and mundane, now is the chance to do it for free!

The hair I wore with it is also a free group gift from Foxy.  The group is only 20L to join.

Goddess Mode: On

kimini_002

Hey gang!

So sometimes you just want to feel like a Goddess.  Like you just came down to the ruins of the ancient world and have to power to make it all beautiful again.  Sometimes you simply find a dress that makes you *feel* like a goddess.  And sometimes, just sometimes…. that dress is free.  And you do a mad happy dance cause now you feel like a freaking goddess and it didn’t even cost you anything!  And then you start a lot of sentences with “and” even though you know you aren’t really supposed to but you feel like such a rebel and you really don’t care cause you are too busy happy dancing….  and then you think you need to come up for air, stop babbling like a lunatic (its a hobby) and tell everyone else how they too can feel like said goddess, for freaking free!

This is one of those times.

Kamiri has this gorgeous dress available as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is free to join making this gift totally free! (can’t say that happy word enough!) In fact, they have an entire area upstairs with free gifts!  Well worth the trip to the shop.  This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Classic

I absolutely love the detail on this and will be tucking this away for further wearing!  Bliss!

Gargoyle Queen

Hey fabbies,

I’ve been delving into the world of geneology in my real life.  Fascinating stuff, really.  Especially for a girl who was adopted and never knew her heritage growing up.  Turns out I am mostly British, Irish and Scottish (DNA), which may explain my love of castles.  Speaking of castles, check out my new buddy.  He may look scary but he is really just one of those gargoyles from Notre Dame voiced by Jason Alexander (You know, George from Seinfeld).  He says “Ooh La La“.  Still, you don’t meet a guy like him every day.

Ok for reals, this is another of those amazing pose props from Le Poppycock (75L a play Nextup!).  I tell ya’ she has got some mighty fun stuff.

My dress is a group gift from UNA that comes in a fatpack of colors as a free group gift.  The group there is 50L to join but she has a plethora of goodies for you on the wall for your small join fee.  This dress fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Ebody

Ah well, my eyes are mad at me for staring at this screen for far too long today, so I suppose it is time to come down from my belltower and post this.

Hey faboo guys n gals!  (gals n guys??),

Back again with a very sweet Fab Free group gift from one of my favorites Zoom!  I’ve been setting up a space station for my newest home (isn’t it fun how you can change houses in second life??) and took a break for some shopping and that’s when I saw this.  I love the artsy-ish short with the simple skirt, it just strikes a lovely balance, don’t you think?  It comes with a HUD allowing you to choose from four matching colors (for top and skirt) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the board, if you need to join, the group is free to join, always, so no worries there!  Gift is free and group is free.  You can’t beat that with a stick!

Now, if you *really* wanna splurge, my hair is from Arata and it is only 1L.  No group needed!  There are actually several cute 1L gifts up on the wall there.  😉  So that’s that, you can get this entire outfit and hair for a whopping 1L!  Does Fab Free bring it, or what?  We got yer’ backs!

Weekend on the French Riviera

french_007
Heyo Fabbies and happy weekend!  Or should I say Salut!  Ca va?

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring weekend.  I am out here just sipping some wine on the French Riviera where the Bohemian style is all the rage right now.  In fact, it is all the rage throughout Europe!  Just colors and frills and fun sexy outfits!  I think with all the war and pandemic and everything else, the mood of peace and love so exemplified by the Hippies back in the 60’s and since then is on everyone’s mind.  Mind?  I don’t mind, it’s my preferred style, bohemian gal that I am!  So when I saw the Saturday Sale and Belle Epoque, well, I just had to run down and grab it.  I want to be in style while I sip my wine like a fashionista!

The Saturday Sale

This is a bit time sensitive, so if you love this outfit and want to see all the colors it comes in for only 75L per color, you will need to hit Belle Epoque today.  I’m not sure how long they keep their Saturday Sales up for.  This outfit fits Maitreya and Legacy only but gosh all the colors are stunning.  I had a difficult time trying to choose and finally went with my signature pink.  I can’t go wrong with pink… ever.  lol

No group is needed to get the sale price, so run on over and style up!  I’m *so* glad I saw this and grabbed it.  I am absolutely in love!

My table, chair and wine (and pose) are another 75L Nextup from Le Poppycock.  I love that I can wear the props and they pose me and so I have no need to rez, so I can use them anyplace (like I did!  lol)!

The Upside Down

Hey gang,

As everyone dons their Easter best, here is me in all my dark INFP-ish-ness lost someplace looking for the Upside Down.  Now if you have ever watched Stranger Things, you know that the Upside Down is much more Halloween-ish and not at all Easter-ish.  You’ll find no fluffy bunnies here.

However!

In second life you can find an event called The Upside Down and at that event you can find many little 10L goodies.  Like this metallic blue hoodie from Indigenous (you simply cannot go exploring without your best metallic blue hoodie!), and this backdrop from Something New.  Both items are 10L and there is no group required.  The hoodie comes with a matching top and  fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Curvy
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Hourglass

This event continues until the 30th of April, so you do have time, but why wait, go enjoy yourself!  It’s a fun theme.

Oh and Happy Easter and Passover y’all!  Feel free to send me some Cadbury Creme Eggs if you are feeling generous.  😉

Butterfly Effect

Hey Fab Fam!

I just *had* to bring you the latest group gift from one of my favorite stores, Pink Cream Pie.  I love the butterflies and the styling of this and as we head into spring, we all need to find those fresh cute outfits to wear!  I think you will want to add this one to your closet! (ahem… “inventory”.)

This sexy little number is a free group gift as I said from Pink Cream Pie, the group costs 314L to join, but you get a wall of past gifts (a lot!), along with lucky boards and a 100L bonus credit each month.  So absolutely worth the lindens!  She takes good care of her VIPs!  This outfit fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Now, I have a chocolate bunny that is calling my name, so I must dash!

Praying for Time

imagine_001

And it’s hard to love
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much, too much, too late
Well, maybe we should all be praying for time
Praying for Time – George Michael

Heya faboos!

Been hearing some horrible stories about war crimes being committed by the Russian armies and it just saddens me so much, how cruel we humans can be to one another.  We are supposed to be the most intelligent advanced species on the planet, but tell me, what other species is cruel to one another? Makes me question how intelligent and advanced we truly are.  So today I have donned my peace hat and am holding a light up in prayer, hoping for these atrocities to end.  It is the innocent who suffer in a war, and that is so wrong.

Meanwhile I’ve been working on this a bit longer than I would like, I’ve been under the weather but spent much of the last few days snuggled with the little man (Rocky, my Chi) and sleeping/watching tv and I have a bit more energy so I am tackling this again.

Let’s do this!

My super cute and bohemian peace hat was a marketplace find by Libelula World and it was free to scoop up!  One size fits all of course.

My top and jeans are the latest free group gift by Shanti (did you know that Shanti is Sanskrit for Peace?).  The group is 99L to join and you can grab several other group gifts as well, along with a monthly 100L that all VIP get.  You’ll also get half off all new releases so you do get your 99L worth (you basically get it right back via the gift card.  Pretty nifty huh!).  This outfit (both top and jeans) fits:

  • Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Fine
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

My awesome pose with the sparkler is from Le Poppycock, it is another of their Nextup goodies that I have been grabbing lately.  The machines are only 75L a play and there are endless poses.

Anyhoo, better wrap this up.  It’s taken me far too long!

Hey faboo gang!

It’s a rainy day here in my real life world, a day to crank up those fairy lights and delve into some fun second life fashion!

I love to find designers who are *not* on the big designer list and introduce them to everyone.  There are a helluva lot of good designers out there that you never hear about and who don’t even get a chance because they are overshadowed by those designers you *do* hear about every day!  I like to share these “mom and pop” designers, the small businesses of the grid to show them some support.

This time around I have found a cute place called It’s Me.  They have some freebies and dollarbies, but my eye caught this outfit which was still only 29L, I love the funky pattern on the overalls. It also comes with cute sneakers to match (not shown). This cute set which has both the top and the pants fits:

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

My pose is another cute 75L Nextup find from Le Poppycock.  I love that you wear the props and they pose you, so you have nothing to rez.  This pose comes with both the tree and the dove, as well as the pose, of course.

Takin’ it to the Streets

ukraine flag_010

Tis just me gang,

Sneaking in for a post.  Ohhhhh gollygosh, it’s been a crazy rl time for me.  Real life job stuff has had me on my toes the last week or so, coming to a head tomorrow (in a good way, hopefully!)  So I didn’t forget about y’all!  Just scrambling to keep up!  You know when you have those waves of time where you know if you can just get done with A, B and C, you can regroup and refocus?  I’m trying to get those things done now and hopefully by this weekend, be able to breathe again.

Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine sadly rages on.  Many of the designers have been creating wonderful items so that we can show our support for the poor people of Ukraine.  I’ve got a couple more to showcase for you today so let’s get on with it.

This super cute and colorful top is a find on marketplace for 25L by Morph Studios.  It fits:

  • CLASSIC XXS-L
  • TONIC CURVY / FINE
  • EBODY CLASSIC / CURVY
  • LEGACY
  • KUPRA
  • MAITREYA
  • SLINK HOURGLASS / PHYSIQUE
  • BELLEZA FREYA/ ISIS / VENUS

This pose is another cute marketplace find and it also comes with a pose for two people, so they’ve gotcha covered whether you are posing alone or with a friend.  It is made by Chocolate Cake (which sounds good right about now!) and will cost you absolutely nothing (aka free!).

My face tattoo in Ukraine Colors is a gift from Carol B, I found it on market also for free.

Lastly, my fellow protestor in the back is a 10L find also on market by Salmagundi (I just like to say that out loud!).  He is copy so you can turn him into an entire crowd if you please.
