Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

cozyfest_004

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.

Conjuring

conjuring_001

Hey Gang!

Just recently I was casting a spell (as I always do), and this photo was taken just before things went horribly wrong…  I mean, I was pretty oblivious (as usual!), and had no idea how powerful my conjuring spell really was!  Huh!  I guess I pack a wallop!

Enamored

I’ve discovered a wonderful “new to me” shop thanks to our own Ms. Julianna!  Honestly, I am enamored with most everything in the shop and to my delight discovered they have a discounted area with gorgeousness I can share with y’all on the blog.

This shop is called Oubliette and this adorbs dress I am wearing is from that area.  It was only 50L and I am so in love with it. (Y’all know I love pink but did you know I love anything celestial too?  IE Moons, stars, suns)  I felt so magical in it that I whipped out my spell book and well, started casting spells!  This dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Not sure what the …. person?  Behind me is wearing.  0.o

More soon!

Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

The Fixin’s

Wintry Sparkles

Pink Cream Pie January GG

Hey Fabbies!

‘Tis just me again with more group gift finds.  I can’t say enough how much I *love* Pink Cream Pie.  She just feeds into my obsessions like pink… and unicorns!  So, how can a girl resist?!

However today I have neither pink, nor unicorns to show you (maybe next time, hm?), but I do have this free adorbs sparkly dress.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there are a load of group gifts up for your perusal.  This just happens to be the newest one.  It comes with a limited HUD (can change color of straps and undies) and it fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

My cute hair is a free gift from No.Match on the Cosmopolitan Christmas tree, which is free but you have to join the Cosmo group, which is also free.  It is still up with loads of gifties as of this post, but I don’t know how long it will be up, so I would hurry on this one if I were you!

I know this is painfully short….  I haven’t had my quota of caffeine for the day yet!  Stay warm gang!!!  Only another 75 days until Spring!

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

There are just so many freebies and goodies around the grid right now, my head is just spinning!

For this post I’ve been visiting advent calendars and also Planet29 which is celebrating a birthday and has gifts galore! I haven’t even opened them all yet.  I guess that’s something to do to keep me warm in this unsavory ice cold weather!

Let’s start with the advent calendars, I got this gorgeous tree for free at Simply Shelby (I love her stuff!) via her advent calendar.  She has had some really cute stuff in it.  No group needed and its free! Each day is free, but it is also only available for one day only.  I’ve already grabbed this cute tree and another on another day.

Now Planet29, I have a plethora of Planet29 goodies for you.  All free, no group needed for any of it.  Just click the gifts in the booths.  Can’t beat that with a stick! Let’s go down the list…
