Rockabilly

Rockabilly

Apparently Rockabilly never dies, dear readers.  I don’t know…it must be true if it’s on a t-shirt, right?

Off to Mirus

In my travels tonight, I stopped off at Mirus Designs and found that they have a rather extensive wall of group gifts.   The Rockabilly outfit caught my eye since I always like a good tied sweater around the waist moment.  You’ll find that this outfit comes with the t-shirt, shorts and tied sweater, which is a pretty great combo.  To get it, just join the Mirus Designs group for 10L, and then pay the vendor 1L.  There are lots of other gifts to pick up too while you’re there!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Slink
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

I wonder if everything written on a t-shirt is true.  That doesn’t sound right, now does it?

Lost Hearts Hunt ~ 25 FREE & Fabulous Gifts!!!

Lost Hearts Hunt!
I love me a good hunt, but I really don’t like hunts that are just too hard.  I mean, really, who has all that spare time???  I loved (LOVED) the Lost Hearts Hunt located at Valentine Island.  There are 25 easy to find prizes all over this very well decorated Valentine’s Day sim.  There are lots of places to take pictures; lots of places to picnic, dance or play with your SL partner!  But, what’s the BEST part you ask…well, everything is FREE!!!  No group is needed :-). You have some time to get there, but definitely don’t miss it!  The hunt lasts until February 20, 2022.

The Valentine's SimI don’t want to spoil the hunt for you…so I am not telling you where any of these little hearts are located, but, they aren’t overly hard to find.  They are FREE, so just right click and buy for 0L.  Don’t try the age old trick of looking up under Creator because the amazing creator, Tayren Theas, has created pretty much everything on the sim, so you will have beacons everywhere :-). Tayren has been on the grid a long time and designs for SL Ballet.

The Hearts are all different I’ve featured a few of my favorite FREE gifts in the picture above, but, truly, I spent 20 minutes just trying to decide.  The Asian Teahouse comes with furniture and plants (not pictured).  The ladies pajamas match the Men’s boxers (also not pictured).  This chess set that I am standing on can be PLAYED!  The Fountain behind me has running water.  The couple’s tree comes in three versions (Spring, Winter, and White Flower).  There are also adorable Valentine’s chalk posters (not pictured).  The list goes on and on.

So, what are YOU waiting for…grab cupid’s bow and arrow and get on over to Valentine Island!

A Closeup of the Ring

In this picture, I am wearing the adorable pajamas (called Loungewear) and the little gold heart ring that was easy to adjust.  These gifts both have FREE male counterparts (boxers and a male heart ring).  How cool is that???

Runaway to Summer

Runaway to Summer

I spent most of my day tripping over piles of snow today, so when I got home from my RL wanderings, I quickly got into some summery duds, grabbed a bouquet and headed off to a warm-looking sim to forget what it feels like to have snow in your boots.  No teeth chattering here!

The Broken Thread

Le Fil Cassé have just started their very own inworld group, and to inaugurate it, there’s a fabulous new group gift!  This very lovely warm burgundy dress is completely free when you join the free group.  It also comes with a matching headband that gives a lovely little touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Exactly what I needed!

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. 🙂

  • Ebody, Ebody Curvy

  • Legacy, Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Maitreya Petite

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

Day With My Buds

After a hectic week of TP’ing, crowded events, unpacking, sorting, reboxing. A girl just needs a break from time to time. Jacx is modeling on her downtime day, pj pants & a tee, very similar to what I wear in RL at home 🙂 One of the events I have been unpacking is the Swank Pumpkin Hunt event from Oct. 7th-Oct. 31st.  The Free Swank group is required to do the hunt. Arielle has been showing you items she collected from the pumpkins here, here. My find, [Park Place Casuals], a new to me creator has an awesome free [Park Place Casuals] Ladies Tucked Tee – Attitude. Let’s just say this tee is very me, sarcasm is my middle name 😛 Teamed up with the tee is Sn@tch Solstice Leggings (all colors) (sized system undies, pants, appliers Omega, and Slink) for 25L on the freebie and cheapie table. Aline has shown several items from the table here. *Fame* Slippers (sized for Kupra, Legacy, & Maitreya) are a 1L Marketplace find. Hahaha had to include a shoe.  Lastly, some of the mesh creators have heard our requests to include nail appliers for our toenails that match the mesh nails. In response to that Cazimi is creating a new system. For 1L you can get Cazimi Mesh Nails Base Pack Ballerina short for Maitreya, included is 5 color hud matching mesh nail appliers & toenail appliers.

Sweetness & Light

Sweetness & Light

Never underestimate the power of a bit of sweetness and light.  I think that we sometimes forget in this world full of ire and bad temper, that a kind word can take us further than any spewing of bile possibly could.  It’s all about spreading positive vibes as much as you possibly can.  Today, I’m basking in the sweetness and light and trying to pay it forward as best I can.

Confectionery

This sweet and flirty dress is the latest group gift over at Kaithleen’s!  I am totally in love with the tulle skirt and fitted bodice in this lovely lavender shade!  It also comes with an HUD to change the colour of the tutu section of the dress.  You can get your very own by joining the Kaithleen’s group for 199L and clicking on the vendor.  You’ll find a full wall of awesome gifts here, and the word on the street is that the lucky boards have also recently been updated.  While you’re there, you may want to check out the sale going on, many of the designs have been discounted to just 75L!

Humm… Wonder if Arielle can get Sir Paul (here) to come sing “Birthday” at this party? 😛

Fabfree & Me

Happy Birthday to FabFree and Happy Rez Day to me. FabFree and I have grown up together since September 6, 2007. It sure has been an exciting and sometimes bumpy ride to get here 14 years later. About a week or so after Jacx was born, listening to music and dancing at my favorite club. I was talking about the struggle to find affordable clothing. When one of my new friends (a guy (LOL) Said to me ” I have this link for a blog where they show free clothes you can get.” This was my introduction to FabFree. From Farrah and Renee, to the lovely ladies of today, they have kept me and my ever expanding, out of control inventory (101,893 and rising) current with gifts, groups to join, awesome pictures to look at. What more could a girl who loves fashion ask for..
So for the last 14 years every morning while drinking coffee and before I log in to SL, I open FabFree to see where I will be shopping that day. LOL. Sure has been a ton of fun. And I thank FabFree and all the ladies past and present, for helping me be one of the best dressed ladies on the grid. 🙂 For todays festivities, Jacx stopped by Entice for the  Springsteen Dress, (free, No group needed). This sweet strapless mini, comes with 3 different party prints.  Pop over to Entice on your rez day and pick up your free gift. Though you can not see ’em, the lovely big hud Jades Wedges, completed the party going fashion.

Bittersweet

Bittersweet farewell

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  After some retail therapy, I spent the afternoon at the beach today, enjoying the last burst of summer.  The beginning of September is always bittersweet to me.  I look forward to the crisp days of fall, but I’m never really ready for the change of seasons.  Pretty soon, it will be time to pack crop tops and shorts away and pull out cozy sweaters and long pants.  For today though, I am rocking my latest hunt find and a cute pair of shorts.

Loving that Dragon!

This adorable crop top from Grumble features bright pops of color splashed over a black background and slender shoulder straps that allow my skin to soak up the sun.  I really love the jewel tones in the pattern, which draws inspiration from the theme of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Both Jacx and I have already shared hunt items here and here, but with 42 stops along the way, there are plenty of other budget-friendly goodies hidden on the trail.  Each hunt prize has a 3L price tag, but the sponsor fees are for the IKSDP Harambee project Gwassi Kenya schools.  It feels good to scoop up some new items for my wardrobe and support a worthy cause at the same time.  The event runs through September 30th.

Rained Out

Rained Out
The clouds are gathering ominously overhead, and I feel like my afternoon tea party is going to be awash with…water.  Though the heavens may be about to open up, I’ve got a plan B on the go where we move all our fresh dainties to the indoors to preserve our party dresses and best tresses.  Indoors we go!

Dressed to Impress

Whenever a tea party is on the menu, one must needs have a perfect party dress!  This one from Lybra really fits the bill, and happily it’s completely free!  I headed over to the Lybra table at The Free Dove to find this beauty.  I joined the Free Dove group for free, then clicked on the box and ’twas all mine!  Doesn’t get much better than that.

There’s a new group gift at Astralia right now, this little paw-fect chair is so adorable I can hardly stand it.  When you join the Astralia group for 149L, you can get this sweet little seat which comes with different colour options for the paws-itively adorable cushions.  Right, I’m running out of cat puns, so I’d better wrap this up!

Happy tea sandwiches to you all!
